Predictable Unpredictabilities

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Modern Love Tarot - Wheel of FortuneToday’s draw is the Wheel of Fortune, which is traditionally a representation of luck (both good and bad), changing circumstances, the ups and downs of life, and the cyclical nature of life and the world.

The hourglass is an interesting take on the Wheel of Fortune for me.  I usually see the Wheel of Fortune as an unpredictable card.  Yet with both the hourglass and the sea behind it?  There is a level of predictability present that bleeds into the card’s meaning.  After all, an hourglass measures the same amount of time again and again, and the sea’s tides go in and out on a predictable schedule as well. This then makes me think of repeating cycles and that everything moves on in its own time.

The message here is that not everything can be rushed.  Some things move at their own pace, no matter how much you might want to change that. Stop trying to control ever little aspect of life. It’s okay to take a breath and let things move at their own pace instead.


@thetarotprofessor Self Love Challenge Prompt
Questions for February 1st:

Семейный ОракулWhy did I feel called to this self-love challenge at this time?

You often find the effort to be kind to yourself a burden and a struggle (Её ноша), but you continue to be dedicated to trying (Верность). This challenge gives you an opportunity to find insights into how to do this easier and better than before.

How might my life improve as I cultivate more self-love?

It will allow you to show your true self instead of being tucked behind a mask (Быть в Тени Другого), which is empowering and better allows you to care not just for yourself but those you love as well (Отец Принцессы). Allowing who you are to shine means less effort and stress in your life on a day to day basis to uphold masks that you think protect you.

#DiscordTarotholicsFeb2023 Challenge Prompt
Topic for February 1
: Do the Imbolc Spread

Modern Love Tarot - The Fool, Death, Six of Pentacles, Ace of SwordsWhat seeds need planted in my life right now?

The Fool – You need to make a concerted effort towards allowing yourself more fun and carefree moments.  Not everything has to be serious all the time.

What preparations do I need to begin making to prepare those seeds for growth?

Death – Be open to change and allow it to happen instead of grasping so tightly to the way things have away been that you don’t allow things to change for the better.

What in my life is beginning a new phase of reawakening and renewal?

Six of Pentacles – When you give, you get… and when you get it’s important to give. Open yourself to the generosity of others.  You already offer so much of yourself, but take so much less in return. Allow them to reciprocate, as it creates a more healthy cycle for all.

How can I best foster that awakening?

Ace of Swords – Communication is key.  Share with others what you need and how you’re feeling. They can’t reciprocate if they think you need nothing and have it all under control and handled.


Daily Self Kindness

I took a nap and worked at nursing a headache most of the day. It finally eased up this evening.
