Think First

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Ravyness Drakon TarotToday’s draw is the Knight of Swords, which is traditionally a representation of a projective and active beta energy, personality, or person in the area of one’s thoughts, intellect, education, ambitions, and communication. This often translates into themes that have to do with pursuing one’s goals related to their education, actively seeking one’s goals, action and decisiveness,and at times can indicate impulsivity.

When being hardheaded is something you do well (the head piece on the dragon) it can sometimes be difficult to remember to take other’s feelings into consideration (the heart at the end of the dragon’s tail).

Jumping the gun or speaking out of turn can have unintended consequences. Take care with your words today and think before you speak. This is not a particularly positive message, which is my usual goal for my daily card… but it’s a message that needed to be heard today.

There is encouragement, though.  Encouragement that says you can do better with a bit more self awareness and compassion brought to the forefront to help you.

#DiscordTarotholicsJan2023 Challenge Prompt
Question for January 30th
: Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day – Where in your life is having good boundaries a healthy and safe choice?

Ravyness Drakon TarotReading Summary: Rest and recovery is important (Four of Swords), as it helps you deal with unexpected changes (Wheel of Fortune) more gracefully instead of allowing them to overwhelm you (Eight of Wands).

Take Away: You have a tendency to work yourself too hard and push yourself too far, and then turn around and be cruel and unkind with yourself when you need to rest in order to recover from that treatment.

You will fare better in times of stress if you cut yourself a bit of slack and allow yourself the rest and recovery you need without the recriminations and negative self-talk.


Daily Self Kindness

I made sure to eat a healthy snack before bed instead of a bunch of unhealthy crap.
