Obstacles, Not Roadblocks

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Runic Tarot - Four of PentaclesToday’s draw is the Four of Pentacles, which is traditionally a representation of stability, grounded energies, stagnant control, miserly behavior, and conservation of resources or funds.

Well, that ship isn’t going anywhere.

Here in this card we see a figure that has become stranded. They sure as hell aren’t going to be sailing away any time soon, and thus the stand on the shore, stuck and stagnant because their ship is no longer available to them.

The message in today’s card is about looking at where you have been stymied by events beyond your control, and how you can roll with these punches instead of remaining stuck in place as the world moves on around you.

Question for January 24th
: Global Belly Laugh Day – What can you do today to bring more laughter into your life?

Runic Tarot - Queen of Wands, The Fool, Queen of CupsReading Summary: Put down your ambitions and motivations (Queen of Wands Rx). Throw caution to the wind to have a little fun (The Fool), and it will help both yourself and others take your minds off your stressors (Queen of Cups raising her cup to The Fool).

Take Away: Laughter makes the heart happy and healthy, and allowing yourself some carefree time to indulge in fun with others is the best way to make sure you are getting the laughter you need.

Set aside your worries and responsibilities and play the fool now and then.  It allows others to see the lighter side of your nature, and gives you the stress relief you need to return to your responsibilities reinvigorated.

I rode on the lumber cart today instead of walking around the hardware store so that my ankle wouldn’t act up any more than it already is.

Don’t Wanna Know Lenormand Reading

Blue Night Lenormand

Something you left behind.

Lily and Coffin – You have made peace with your loss of the loved one that passed recently. There was some guilt over your atypical grieving process and how others might perceive it, but you processed through it well and have moved past it.

Something you’re doing now.

Mice and Bear – Undermining authority figures is not usually your style, but desperate times call for desperate measures. There’s a good chance this isn’t going to turn out how you want, but no one can fault you for trying.

How you’re living honestly.

Broom and Stork – You are willing to look at those things you don’t like about yourself and work on them.  This process requires an acceptance of your flaws, for only when you can accept that there’s a problem can you begin the long process of transformation and healing.
