Think Before Stepping Up

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Pixie's Whisper Tarot Chritsmas EditionToday’s draw is the Five of Wands, which is traditionally a representation of tests, trials, conflict, and struggle in the area of one’s drive, will power, passions, determination, values, principles, and inner spark. This often translates into the willful butting heads with another, neither able to pause and take in the perspective that the other is coming from.

What stands out to me in the imagery of this card is the fact that most of the wands are up in the air instead of being wielded by the figures below.  What this says to me is that there are some people that strive to get their point across… and then others that follow along just to support those willful few.  They get so involved that they forget it’s not their fight and they have no skin in the game.

Today’s card is a reminder that when you get worked up about something or interject yourself into a disagreement, that we take a moment to pause and look at why we are worked up… or why we are getting involved.  Is it really worth the conflict?  Or is it something we should step aside from instead?

I took a little time away from filling orders to do some gluing.  I know it’s not really stepping away from work, but it did give me a break from the stress of time crunching and worrying.
