Plotting the Path Can Soothe the Soul

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Cosmic Beings Tarot - King of SwordsToday’s draw is the King of Swords, which is traditionally a representation of a projective alpha energy,personality, or person in the area of one’s intellect, thoughts, education, logic, as well as strategies an ambitions.

The figure in this card appears very happy with the double moon that brackets the butterfly above (yes, I know he’s supposed to be staring at the sword, but that’s not what it looks like), and you know why? Symmetry. Symmetry is soothing to those that like to plan and strategize, as it means things are in perfect order. It is reassuring when all your ducks are in a row and everything feels like it’s fitting into place.

What I see in the message of today’s card is a reminder to not let the unpredictability of the world to keep you from making plans.

Lionharts’ #TheJanuaryTarot 2023 Year of Evolution Challenge Prompt
Question for January 3rd
: What can help me make the most out of this month?

Forest of Precious Twigs OracleAwareness – Connect with the world around you rather than retreating into yourself and holding yourself apart.  It’s tempting to sink into yourself and let the world slide away a while, but that won’t keep you out of depression’s pit, and you know it.  Use this knowledge to do something else that might help you more than hinder.

Immersion – Be true to yourself. Only through your own experience and truth can you continue to grow. Wearing masks prevents growth, as those masks become shells that either contain your growth or that you have to break free of to continue growing. Avoid putting on those masks in the first place and immerse yourself in truth instead.

Movement – Do not allow hurt feelings and past struggles to hold you back and tie you down. Stagnation is not your friend. Those past pains taught you lessons and made you stronger… they facilitated growth and are not there to cripple your ability to keep moving.


#DiscordTarotholicsJan2023 Challenge Prompt
Question for January 3rd
: Fruitcake Toss Day – What nasty carry-over from the holidays can you benefit from tossing out of your life?

Cosmic Beings Tarot - Ten of Cups, Four of Wands, Queen of SwordsReading Summary: Cutting off your emotions and forsaking joy (Ten of Cups Rx) when at home (Four of Wands) in favor of fostering your ambitions with single-mindedness (Queen of Swords).

Take Away: Running a business at home means that you are always at work. Stop allowing yourself to view your home through this lens of always being a place of work, and you will find the contentment you lost in your home through the holiday rush.

When trying to balance your enjoyment and sense of play, you have to put the mentality of being in the workplace aside.  You can’t be working -all- the time, no matter how accessible it is to do so.

I used my cane off and on today as needed.  My ankle has been acting up, so a combination of ibuprofen and care was needed.

Gifts For Self Lenormand Reading

Gifts I Can Offer Myself Lenormand Reading with the Transformation Lenormand Oracle

What gifts can I offer myself this season?

Accept ThisSnake and Clover – Luck is a fickle thing and cannot be trusted, but that doesn’t mean we should forsake it entirely. Hope allows us to have a bit of trust in luck even when it can turn against us without warning.  Accept that hope is an important part of the equation and don’t kick yourself when things go awry now and then due to your willingness to let luck have a hand in things.

Embrace This Rider and Bouquet – Allow yourself to embrace change instead of fighting against it all the time. Look for the boon in the shifting situation and lean into it, letting it draw you forward into the good that change can wrought rather than being bogged down by the weight of struggling against the inevitable.

Cherish ThisCross and Broom – You are being given the opportunity to see your duty and responsibility to others as something positive in your life instead of a burden. Cherish this time with those that depend on you rather than resenting them for the responsibility that they represent in your life.
