Today’s meditation was skipped.
Today’s draw is the Four of Wands, which is traditionally a representation of one’s passionate love for the security and welcoming energies of home. This often translates into themes that have to do with homecoming, celebrating home and stability, as well as relaxation in comfortable spaces.
The imagery of this card is of family, and clearly a wedding picture. It speaks to me of the fact that “home” isn’t something that is just “there” or given to us. It’s something we build and create for ourselves, and then teach others to create as they grow from childhood into adulthood. Home is what we make of it.
Therefore, today’s card asks us… where in our lives could we make whatever spots and places, people and things, that we call “home” even better? How can we make these things more comfortable and more of a perfect fit for us and what we value? How can we continue to adapt and manifest what we want in our home so that it feels even more right for us, and even more of a refuge from the world when we need time for comfort and rest?

Mr Lionhart’s The Suits: Revisited #TheNovemberTarot Prompt
Questions for November 13th and 14th
Four of Cups and King of Wands – You need to make sure that even when you are at your most driven, you’re still taking time to step away, breathe, and take a moment to ground and center yourself.
Suit of Cups – How or where can I benefit from letting go or going with the flow?
Knight of Cups and Ace of Swords – Keep in mind when going after your desires that there is always more than one way to get to your destination. Be open to new ideas, as they could get you there via a different route that serves you better.
DECK USED: THE SIMPLIFIED TAROT
Reading Summary: The plume on the Queen of Pentacles‘ head is carried over into the fan of the ferns in the anchor card. This speaks of looking to the past (she looks to the left) for how to foster the future’s endeavors and stability.
The Three of Wands and the King of Wands both face forward as does the skull in the anchor card. That speaks of needing to align your present (center) with what you desire for the future (right).
The crossbones beneath the skull in the anchor card then connects with the crossed arms of the woman in the Three of Wands. This indicates that there are going to be times when there are hurdles that stand in the way, and yet the open arms of the King of Wands says that if you are open to change and adaptation rather than closed off to it, you can remain “on top” and everything will work out as you desire.
Take Away: Don’t depend on everything to go the same as it has before, but make sure that you are taking the lessons of the past with you as you move forward to tackle the financial juggling involved in this season. Adaptation is your friend, and the more you focus on stability during this time, the better.

I got some time to play with Gideon tonight. It wasn’t a huge chunk of time, but it was enough to give me some comfort and cut through life’s tension to let me breathe a little easier.
