Today’s meditation was skipped.
Today’s draw is the Eight of Pentacles, which is traditionally a representation of hard work, improving one’s skills, developing expertise, apprenticeship, and can often indicate repetition and the “practice makes perfect” adage.
The thing is… this card very deliberately jumped out of the deck reversed this morning. Reversals on a card usually indicate the card’s meaning is reversed, intensified, inverted, delayed, internally directed, or that there is a negative twist involved. Here, in this card, I find the meaning to be inverted.
In the reversed Eight of Pentacles today, we see an encouragement to take some time off and allow yourself to relax. It’s been a busy year and a hectic holiday season, and you deserve a bit of a break from putting your nose to the grindstone. Allow yourself a breather and go back to your pursuits fresh after the new year.

Questions for December 1st thru 6th
Death – There is a significant amount of change and transition that comes with December for you. Your emotions, self care, rest, and spare time are all spirited away, and every shred of your time, energy, and attention gets poured into work. Your income goes through a huge flux as well. Then, at the end of the month it all reverses again.
Advent Calendar: What positive surprise awaited me in December?
The Empress – You were able to give yourself a bit more self-care than usual for this time of year because you had a great deal of support from others. This allowed you to nurture not just your business throughout the month, but also give yourself a tiny bit of TLC as well, which is something you have been lacking in previous Decembers.
Pre-Christmas Cleanup: What should I throw away from my life?
The Fool – Take care to avoid themes that involve irresponsibility and carelessness. It’s not a part of your nature, and can cause things to spiral out of control if not careful.
Pre-Christmas Laundry: What should I clean up now?
The Tower – The cacophony of the month has come to an end, but there’s a lot of chaos still lingering in your environment. Make sure when you get back home that you take the time to pick up and put away the debris, and clean up your environment. As a result, you’ll be happier for it.
Pre-Christmas Decorating: What new can I bring to my life?
The Star – Hope and optimism need to be resurrected back into your life to keep you uplifted in the weeks and months to come.
Santa’s Visit: What can I give myself? What gift will be the best for me?
Strength – Have faith in yourself and your inner strength, and always remember that you’re stronger than you think you are.

When my back got to the point that it needed to stop, I stayed in the car instead of trying to push myself to keep getting out and going into more of the stores that we all needed to stop at. Instead I gave my list to someone else to finish.
