Bring the Goods

Today’s meditation was skipped.

The Illustrated Fox Tarot - Six of SwordsToday’s draw is the Six of Swords, which is traditionally a representation of moving on, letting go, intentional transitions, and releasing baggage from your past in order to move on to something better.

The Capricorn in this illustration isn’t just moving on from a crap situation into a (hopefully) better one, but they’re taking their valuables with them with absolutely no intention of looking back.

Today’s card is a reminder not to leave behind what’s important. Sometimes, we get so wrapped up in the transition, and moving out of a bad situation into a better one, that we can forget what’s important. And sometimes? Those important things end up left behind, either because we think we should, or because we simply forget them.

The message today is to make sure you don’t forget these important things. Make a list, check it twice. Tuck away the good stuff and take it with you… make sure you don’t leave it behind.

Lionharts’ #TheJanuaryTarot 2023 Year of Evolution Challenge Prompt
Question for January 4th
: Go through your deck, card by card, until you find a card that represents how you feel today. Place it on the table then do a reading asking “What am I asked to do with or about my current feelings?”

AATR TarrotHow You FeelThe Used – I have to talk with a friend about reciprocity today, and it’s gonna suck. This was the closest card I could find in the deck that fit what I’m feeling, not just concerning them, but in general for the day so far.

What am I asked to do with or about my current feelings?

Right now they are feeling like they didn’t do anything wrong and are oblivious to there being a problem or willfully ignoring it (The Lost Ones), thus this needs to be brought to their attention (The Executioner). If you don’t talk to them about the problem, they won’t know what it is and can’t start over and turn over a new leaf (The New).

#DiscordTarotholicsJan2023 Challenge Prompt
Philosophical Question for January 4th
: Historically, what has been humanity’s biggest challenge?

The Illustrated Fox TarotReading Summary: Passionate determination (King of Wands) to reach for the stars (The Star) sometimes creates more problems and hurdles in the way of success than it solves (Ten of Coins Rx).

Take Away: Humanity has always had a tendency to get in its own way when it comes to true success and enjoyment of their successes. Whether it’s with their single minded determination toward a goal, or an increasing obsession with a single passion, or zealousness of one flavor or another.

All of these are distractions that have a habit of drawing humanity away from true success and happiness in that success, for there is always a desire for more and better and never time to rest and smell the roses and truly enjoy.

Weekly Creativity Prompt – The World

Prompt: “Pull the Hermit card from your deck(s). Compare the imagery between the card provided below and the card(s) from your own deck(s). How would you read them differently and why?

Tarot of the Hidden Realm - The WorldTarot of the Hidden Realm – Resplendent and spent, she lies among the green  and exhales a sigh of relief as butterflies flutter around her and reminder her of hope and that after she has taken this moment of rest?  She will rise to dance with them, and a new journey will begin. The imagery in this card speaks of relief, hope, and continuation. Just because we come to the end of one journey doesn’t mean it’s the end of everything… it simply means that you need to take a moment to orient yourself, and then lean into hope as you rise again.

Magickal Nature Tarot, Josana Jaus Tarot, Monsoon Tarot

Magical Nature Tarot – She dances in joyous celebration, skirt flared as she twirls in a feeling of completion and pleasure. She is there to remind us that endings are not to be mourned, but celebrated.  They mean that we have completed something.  A phase… a journey… it’s not dying but completing, and in that completion we find a touch of sadness yes.  But we need to focus on all the good it offers, the feelings of success and the boon we are being given and will be able to then carry with us into the future with a light step, lighter shoulders, and an even lighter heart.

Jonasa Jaus Tarot 7th Edition – Growing life within the womb is a miracle of womanhood, and the journey is both a beautiful blessing and a heavy burden. There is so much that can go wrong, and so much to take on, so many changes and so much discomfort. And when it’s time… and the birth comes? Well that can hurt too, and yet it too is a blessing beyond compare.  This card speaks of the boon and the bane that comes with growth and rebirth. You can’t have one without the other, but the end is worth the struggle when it comes down to it.

Monsoon Tarot – A figure emerges from a bed of flowers like they are slipping free of a Faerie mound, a nest rests as a crown on their head, eggs nestled within it and others lying among the flowers. This card speaks strongly of rebirth.  The World circles around back to the Fool, and what I see here is the Fool at rest before they wake and begin to move. It is that moment of pause where you acknowledge all you have accomplished and take a breath.  When your eyes open, you will step into the shoes of the Fool once more and an exciting new journey will begin.
