The Tightening Noose

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Snowland Tarot - The DevilToday’s draw is the Devil card, which is traditionally a representation of temptations, addictions, and struggles with moderation. These issues, when it comes to the Devil card, are most often self inflicted instead of forced upon you by life or others.

When does it go from fun and games with friends to a little too far? Where is the line?

The imagery in this card brings that question to mind. The chains are too tight. Were they always that tight, or in their fun and games did they become too tight?

Todays card encourages us to take some time today to examine where in life you may be letting things get out of hand, and look for ways to ease up the grip of those chains before they tighten to the point you can no longer breathe.

What is dormant and waiting in my life right now?

Tower and Stars – For the holiday rush you had to set to the side a good deal of your spiritual practices and “do the responsible thing”, which required diligence and focus to be placed elsewhere.  That side of yourself is currently dormant and now awaiting a reawakening and restoration.

How can I find beauty in this stillness?

Scythe and Child – This moment of pause and peace gives you the opportunity to reconnect with your wounded inner child, and give them the attention they need and attend to their wounds you have brought to the fore during the holiday rush this year.

What new growth am I anticipating?

Fish and Moon – As you begin to open back up, becoming less rigid and more flexible in your life as you ease that choking grip on your control, you will be given the opportunity to reconnect with your emotions.  Don’t tense up and resist the process nor rush it along, but instead try to go with the flow and let them come at their own pace.

How can I approach this time of waiting with patience?

Key and Clouds – Don’t resist the confusion but instead relax into it.  The key to making it out the other side more easily is to accept that you can’t have clarity all the time, and sometimes by sitting in your confusion and uncertainty, answers will surface more easily for you than trying to force things into how you think they should be.
