Winter Travel Advisory

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Snowland Tarot - Eight of WandsToday’s draw is the Eight of Wands, which is traditionally a representation of alacrity, action, speed, movement, and fast paced events or change.

The imagery on this card makes me think of Paul Revere, even though I’m aware that it’s actually an illustration of the historical Pony Express from the late 1800s.

It’s fitting that this is the card that shows up today, as today was a trip north, and it was snowing a LOT up there. I also could not stay long this time around due to the amount of orders coming in, so it was more of a quick trip up, a quick stop over, and then a race back home to work on orders again.

The message in today’s card is about taking care to be careful on my trip up north and back. It’s snowy and slick, and if you rush too much? It could be very dangerous.  Be careful.


Daily Self Kindness

I took a nap today.  A long one.  Sleep has not been something I’ve had a lot of time for over the past few days, but I had a nice long nap today after I got home from my run to the post office.

🌕 Full Moon in Gemini – December 2022

Tomorrow is the full 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.

Full Moon in Gemini Tarot Reading with the Vintage Christmas Tarot

Where am I deluding myself?

Five of Swords – There is a price that must be paid for success and accomplishment.  You cannot expect to go full speed ahead and not feel the consequences of lack of rest.

What am I missing?

The World – Everything.  At this time you are so focused upon your work that there is very little outside of that venue that is able to catch your attention.  You are missing the joy of the holidays, the lives of those around you, even the observance of your own needs to an extent.  Right now, at this time in your life, there’s no room to see any of these things… and you are missing them all.

What perceptions need to be shifted?

Ten of Cups – You need to remember what makes you emotionally happy and reach for those things and people that can touch upon your emotions and keep them thriving and satisfied, even when the rest of your world is a chaos of rushing and deadlines.

What requires further investigation?

Six of Swords – What isn’t working for you and needs to be left behind?  It’s hard to focus on these things during the holiday season, but perhaps this is the best time to be examining them… as you can see in the moment what needs to change and what transformations you can apply to make things better moving forward.

What possibilities are ready to show themselves?

Three of Wands atop Seven of Cups Rx – There have been a lot of different goals and routes forward lain out before you over the past year.  Here we see that all of these myriad of possibilities are being narrowed down to just one. One path forward.  You have the opportunity to condense and focus right now, and align everything to move together in the same direction while shedding what isn’t needed.

Full Moon advice from the Minoan Goddess Amalthea.

Two of Swords – Kindness is important, even when you are so busy you can barely breathe. It is a choice.  A choice that takes no extra time, and no extra effort to give than sharp words and actions.  Make sure you are making choices that are good for both you and others in how you communicate with them.  Your words can sometimes be too sharp.
