Taking the Wheel

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Tarot of Spells and PotionsToday’s draw is the King of Wands atop the Strength card. I don’t usually accept two cards for my daily pull, but the deck insisted.

Traditionally, the King of Wands is a representation of a projective alpha energy, personality, or person in the area of one’s drive, willpower, passions, determination, and inner spark. This often translates into themes that have to do with a style of leadership that impassions others to the leader’s projects and cause.

The Strength card is a representation of inner strength, courage, persuasion, and sometimes manipulation.

With the King of Wands atop Strength, the message in today’s card(s) is about building upon your inner strength when pursuing your dreams. It’s not always enough to want something, or to even want it enough to be fired up about it. Sometimes it’s in convincing others to join you in your goals where success lies.

This card combination asks us to examine where in our lives would our goals benefit from the involvement of others? And how can we best gather others to us to help in achieving our goals?

#DiscordTarotholicsNov2022 Challenge Prompt
Question for November 22nd
: What do I need to focus on for self care for this new moon?

Tarot of Spells and PotionsReading Summary: Don’t judge yourself harshly when you are still feeling your way forward (Judgement and Page of Pentacles). Be happy with how far you’ve come (Nine of Pentacles) and keep moving forward on the “straight and narrow” (Judgement).

Take Away: It’s important with this new moon that you re-dedicate yourself to the goals you want to achieve and the person you have decided you want to become.

Make sure that those things you do in life from day-to-day continue to further these distant targets and aspirations you have decided to go after instead of inserting distractions and obstacles in your path.

Today was early Thanksgiving, and I ate a LOT of really, really good food.  God so much food.

🌑 New Moon in Sagittarius – November 2022

Tomorrow is the new moon, and like all new moons and full moons, I did a spread aligned to the moon’s current themes as a part of my recognition of the moon’s cycle and influences upon us. Today’s spread is about the medicine within, and brought to you by Ethony‘s Tarot by the Moon series.

New Moon in Sagittarius Oracle Reading with The Shaman's Dream Oracle

What bad habit need to be kicked to the curb?

Wailing Tree – As recently pointed out in another reading that was done the other day, it’s time to examine where you are holding on to things from your past that need to be let go and begin releasing your resentment in these areas.  Forgive yourself, and consider softening harsh feelings towards others that were involved. These feelings are harming you far more than they are harming those others.

What positive steps can I take instead?

The Farther Gate – Step beyond your pain and resentment. Take the first step in moving past these issues. That first step can be much harder than you think, but is well worth it to find freedom from that ugliness you hold onto.

Where can I bring some adventure into my life?

A Tidy House – Who needs adventure? Get your ducks in a row and your safe space sorted instead. Only after you have this sorted will you be ready for “adventure”.

What needs shaking up?

Closing Door – That project that you’ve been feeling is decreasing in its margin of success? Don’t close that door just yet. Set it aside for a while, and come back to it later when you have some extra time to commit to it.

New Moon advice from the Minoan Goddess Amalthea.

The Wall atop Root Girl – Dig deep into yourself to find the strength to move past obstacles this month. There will be plenty of them to stand in your path, but if you stay calm and dig deep within yourself for direction and answers, you will move through  each obstacle without fail.


Warmth and Comfort Lenormand Reading

Warmth and Comfort Lenormand Reading with The Blackbird Lenormand

What brings me inner warmth and comfort?

Moon and Tree – Emotional health. Well… yeah. When my emotional health is on the upswing, I feel comfort and warmth.  I feel like everything is better and I’m more easily able to connect with others, as well as more comfortable with myself.

How can I kindle an inner fire in the cold months?

Stars and Fox – Have faith and trust in yourself, and in your ability to adapt and apply strategy to get you out of tough spots. It isn’t just cleverness… it isn’t just hope and positivity.  It’s a combination of both that will keep you warm and motivated.

How can I share that warmth and glow with those around me?

Clouds and Cross – Show them how its done. Others look to you for guidance in times when they are struggling and feeling uncertain. Show them how to use that combination of practicality, strategy, cleverness, hope, and positivity. Show them what it can build and create.

When should I turn to others for comfort and support?

Fish and Crossroads – When you find yourself struggling with direction and unable to just go with the flow.
