Today’s meditation was skipped.

Tarot de Carlotydes - Three of WandsToday’s draw is the Three of Wands, which is traditionally a representation of actively moving from a planning stage into action, picking a direction, and moving towards one’s goals.

The herbs in this imagery make me think of taking care of one’s health, while the estate in the background speaks of long term goals towards security and stability.

The message here is about working towards your goals and the journey that takes you there.  It is a reminder that you cannot focus solely upon the future and where you want to go. Instead, you need to focus on the journey and upon taking care of yourself so that you can continue to move forward in the direction you wish to go.

If you don’t take care of yourself, how can you possibly manage to make it all the way to your goal?


@thetarotprofessor Self Love Challenge Prompt
Question: How can I show myself love today?

Chocolate Lover's Messenger CardsChewy Nougat – Practice patience with yourself. It’s okay to relax and not worry about being productive.  It’s okay to do the things that make you happy. It’s also okay when you slip up now and then and stop doing some of the things you should (…like writing down what you do through the day so that at the end of the day you can look back and see you accomplished something instead of feeling like you did nothing).  Not everything sticks all the time, just pick these things back up again when you’re ready.

Buttons atop Sundae – Transformative creativity. Spill new ideas and new inspiration into your creative spark and allow it to bloom. Have fun with your creative endeavors today, whether they be in your writing and storytelling with Gideon, or in the pretty things you make with your hands.

Sprinkles – Have some fun. Be a little extra and put a little extra into those things you enjoy.


@the_mystic_star February Tarot Challenge Prompt
Questions for February 1st thru 4th

Tarot de CarlotydesWhat card symbolizes love for me?

Two of Pentacles – Finding balance means that you have made room in your life not just for your responsibilities and those things that you have to do, but you have carved out space to spend quality time with your loved ones as well.

What message do I receive from love?

The Empress atop Six of Pentacles Rx – Don’t waste your time and energy giving to those that don’t give back in turn. Your loved ones deserve that energy and time far more.

How does this message impact my life right now?

Three of Swords – It encourages you to look at your disappointment in others more closely, and cut from your life those that are undeserving.

How can I incorporate this message into my life?

Four of Cups – Take a pause before accepting new friendships into your life to make sure that they will be genuine and reciprocal. As previously mentioned in the cards, not everybody is deserving of your time and attention.


Daily Self Kindness

I had J go get Wendy’s today instead of fussing over making something for dinner when I really wasn’t inspired to cook, and neither was anyone else.

One thought on “Well Oiled Machines Run Best

  1. There are an awful lot of warnings in these readings about new relationships/making new friends lately. Though, at least on this front, there aren’t really any new people around, so it makes me wonder what all the “fuss” is about.
