Today’s meditation was skipped.
Today’s draw is the Moon card, which is traditionally a representation of uncertainty, illusion, anxiety, fear, the unknown, and the subconscious.
Okay so the moon looks like a cookie… or maybe a Ritz cracker, and the two hands look like they’re holding champagne flutes up in a toast. What exactly are they celebrating? And, considering the theme of the card’s traditional meaning… are they celebrating too soon?
This card reminds me of that phrase, “don’t count your chickens before their hatched”. It speaks to me of assumptions and not leaving enough room for unexpected changes, hurdles, and obstacles that might crop up along the way.
Sometimes, not knowing what’s coming keeps us alert and helps us in preparing for the unexpected that might otherwise trip us up. This doesn’t mean expecting the worst or looking at everything in a pessimistic viewpoint, but rather simply making sure you’ve accomplished what you set out to accomplish before you start celebrating your success.
DECK USED: THE WANDERING MOON TAROT
I ate on a timer today, and made sure that I took a few breaks throughout the day instead of keeping my head down and plowing through the whole day without stepping away from my work.

These Saturday readings are (not usually) bearing in on any one thing or event in my life, as the question used is asking for a more general outlook. This is a self care exercise, and is not meant as a predictive reading… although that, too, happens on occasion.
The question is… What do I need to focus for self-care through the week ahead?
Earth – Judgement – Make good choices. When it comes to your finances in the week ahead, make sure that you are looking at where you want to go and what you want to do before you make any financial choices or spend any money.
Air – The Fool – Instill a sense of innocence into your thought processes and perspectives this week. Make sure you were looking forward and up, even in the face of disappointment. Just keep going and allow yourself to have some fun.
Water – Seven of Wands – Fight for some time with Gideon this week. You value that time a great deal and you need it to help you stay balanced and on track. In order to get it, though, you’re going to have to do a little bit of fighting and finagling.
Fire – Page of Wands Rx atop Ten of Pentacles – Not being able to have a chance to play and finagle is going to make it hard for you to see things in a positive light where your business is concerned. Make sure that you are combating these feelings with a closer look at all that you have accomplished.
Waning – Lord and Fish – Accept that everything is going to be easy or go the way you want this week.
Waxing – Whip and Rider – You’re going to have to push yourself to get things done this week. Plowed through obstacles and keep moving forward at all costs.
Take Away – Use a sense of his an innocence and a lean into positivity to help you through difficult times in the week ahead. There will be several disappointments and stumbling blocks in your way, and this attitude will help you in moving past them and adapting more quickly. Take care with your spending this week and make sure that your expenses and those things you spend money on are supportive in your goals.
