Expressing Convictions

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Seeker Saga Tarot - King of SwordsToday’s draw is the King of Stars (Wands), which is traditionally a representation of a projective alpha energy, personality, or person in the area of one’s passions, drive, determination, principles, values, and willpower. The King of Wands often indicates themes that have to do with leadership figures or authority figures with the ability to rally others to their causes and draw them in to their own values, principles, and passions.

In the imagery of this card, we see a figure doing just that.  He speaks before others, taking center stage to say his piece and spark within others the motivation and values he desires to see.  This skill of communication could speak of the King of Swords, but it is in his purpose we find the King of Wands, for he seeks to rally others to his cause through passion and conviction, rather than using logic to convince them.

This card asks where in your life do you need to use a bit more passion and conviction to win others over and influence them to follow your lead?  Where are you being too compliant instead of stepping up and leading the way?


Lionharts’ #TheJanuaryTarot 2023 Year of Evolution Challenge Prompt
Question for January 20th
: What can I do today to honor/embrace my unique authentic self?

Seeker Saga Tarot - Ace of Keys, The Devil, The MoonReading Summary: Communication is the key (Ace of Keys/Swords) to embracing your authentic self. Don’t allow uncertainty (The Moon) to drive you into your addictions (The Devil Rx) as a way to avoid things… express what’s going on instead..

Take Away: Remember that your addictions are not the whole of who you are.  Do not lean into them to find identity when you are feeling uncertain or uncomfortable.

Instead, use your words and express how you’re feeling, allowing others to help you to find your balance and lead you back to your unique and authentic self.


Daily Self Kindness

This is a catch-up post, and I can’t remember what my self kindness might have been on this day.

🌑 New Moon in Aquarius – January 2023

Tomorrow is the new moon, and like all new moons and full moons, I did a spread aligned to the moon’s current themes as a part of my recognition of the moon’s cycle and influences upon us. Today’s New Moon in Aquarius spread is brought to you by @bee_conscious_crafting on Instagram.

New Moon in Aquarius Tarot Reading with Tarot FaunaIn which area do I need to think outside the box?

The Hermit – New and healthy alone time ideas are needed. You’re feeling a bit uninspired by some of your old methods, so it’s time to look at developing some new ones that are just as healthy.

What version of “me” do I want to embody?

Ten of Feathers – The survivor. I don’t want to be the victim or the one that is left bloody and dead in the dust, but rather the survivor who, even when injured, picks themselves up and continues onward.

How can I make myself more seen and heard?

Ace of Rocks – Inspire others to look for hidden opportunities. Show them just how much potential life holds if you’re willing to open yourself up to it.

New Moon advice from the Minoan Goddess Amalthea.

King of Torches – It’s okay to go after what you want, just bring others along for the ride. You’re not alone, but are instead leading an army in your wake.
