Take Pleasure In the Process

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Tarot of the Celtic Fairies - JusticeToday’s draw is the Justice card, which is traditionally a representation of finding balance, give and take, and the cause and effect that balances the scales of day to day life.

Today you must bow to the responsibilities that cannot be avoided, just as the figure bows to the Fae in the imagery of today’s card.  There is no choice… but remember that it doesn’t have to be a slog through the mud.

Look up and enjoy yourself. Take in the beauty of all that you do, and enjoy the creative aspect of the pieces you create, as well as the pleasure you get from sending those little pieces of joy out in the world for others.

If you open yourself up to the process and the pleasure, you will in turn receive pleasure and enjoyment as well as send more of that energy out into the world, instead of being stuck in feelings of pressure and obligation.


@thetarotprofessor Self Love Challenge Prompt
Question:What can I say no to today as a form of self-care?

Book of Flirts Deck of CardsReading Summary: Take charge of your actions and your time to get the things done that need to be done (Left Card).  Just make sure you don’t get cocky… or it’ll end up causing problems (Right Card).

Take Away: Today is an order prep day, which means there’s a lot of work stretched out throughout today that needs to be done.  These cards are words of encouragement, with a touch of warning.  They say that I can definitely get everything done and even do so well… but that I need to make sure I don’t dawdle.

Sometimes when I think things are going well I’ll step away and have a nap or something if I think that there’s time.  Today will not be one of those days, and the cards here indicate that as long as I stay on task?  Everything will run smoothly and stress will remain at a minimum.

In other words?  Lets not play the “Fuck.  I shouldn’t have taken that nap today” game.


@Lionharts #TheFebruaryTarot Queen of Cups Challenge Prompt
Questions for February 4th thru 6th

Tarot of the Celtic FairiesWhat can I do to nurture my soul today?

Judgement – Stay aligned with your chosen purpose and growth. Why do you do the things that you do?  Why have you built your life to be what it is? Don’t lose sight of where you want to go and who you want to be today.

In what area am I guided to lovingly listen to my needs right now?

Seven of Cauldrons atop Nine of Spears – Be aware and conscientious of when you begin to feel overwhelmed by all that needs done and set your foot down on how much you can do. Only you can set these boundaries with yourself.

What is my current path trying to teach me?

Six of Stones Rx – Giving less than your all every moment of the day in all things is perfectly okay. Dropping the ball now and then and stepping back instead of constantly trying to be “on” all the time for others is okay.

Why now?

Page of Swords atop The Emperor – Because you need to find a better way of doing things that doesn’t make everything land on your shoulders alone.  You are in the process of learning to accept help from others, but you still have a long way to go to find that new balance.

I finally put the simmer pot back on to raise the humidity in here.  I haven’t been using the humidifiers this year.
