Fickle Fingers

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Monsoon TarotToday’s draw is the Wheel of Fortune, which is traditionally a representation of luck (both good and bad), unpredictability, and the fickle finger of fate.

In this card we see a depiction of the Mœræ (three sisters of fate)… with cat heads. And, just like the Mœræ, cats are also extremely fickle, so I find the imagery to be an absolutely perfect representation of that fickle, unpredictable nature that the Wheel of Fortune often represents.

Today’s message is to remember that life and luck are unpredictable.

Just like the Robert Burns quote “The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry” warns, you can’t depend on planning to solve everything. Always be prepared to adapt as needed instead of sticking rigidly to a plan that may no longer work due to aspects beyond your control.

Lionharts’ #TheJanuaryTarot 2023 Year of Evolution Challenge Prompt
Question for January 2nd
: What am I asked to work towards throughout January?

Folktails OracleHope – Work on connecting with optimism, as it allows you to breathe positivity and hope into your life. Without these things, life becomes increasingly dark and it becomes far too easy to fall into the pit of depression.

Tides – There is an ebb and flow to life that you need to work on riding rather than fighting against. Work on going with the flow more. Flexibility and adaptation are your friends.

Spirit – Put some focus into reconnecting with your spirituality. Seek out that connection with your guides, with Amalthea, and with your spiritual path. These things had to take a step back during the holiday tush, and it’s time to bring them back into the fore.

#DiscordTarotholicsJan2023 Challenge Prompt
Question for January 2nd
: World Introvert Day – How can you benefit from indulging in some alone time?

Monsoon TarotReading Summary: Alone time gives you room for your creative it to spark to life (Ace of Fire), and the focus to take that spark and grow it (Queen of Fire) into an actionable plan (King of Air).

Take Away: You have a habit of wrapping up so much of your creativity into sources of income that the planning for that further step of marketability often goes hand in hand with the growth of a new creative endeavor.

Alone time helps you in not just the development of these creative endeavors, but also in the planning part of turning them over into something profitable.

Daily Self Kindness

I didn’t mean to, but I had a nap today once we got back from errands and dinner. I also got to spend a bit of time with Gid today in texts, which was needed.

PhotoyFlooding Season

Rain
finally rain
it falls in droves
pouring down
to splat
splatter
and splash
as it melts away
the snow and ice
and fields flood
as rivers swell
and I am still
ever so grateful
for each
and every drop
ans step out
barefoot
to twirl
in the grass
with mud on my feet
and my face
tilted to the sky
