Providing Comfort and Stability

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Cats of Aux Tarot - Ten of PentaclesToday’s draw is the Ten of Pentacles, which is traditionally a representation of accomplishments and abundance, and sharing that abundance with those around you.

The image in today’s card feels like a reminder that sometimes providing stability doesn’t come from providing for others. It doesn’t have to be about rent or money. Sometimes it’s about comfort and environment, contact and care.

Support and stability comes in all kinds. You may not be able to always give great gifts or help out financially, but you provide a sense of comfort, safety, and stability to a lot of people. Sometimes, that’s even more valuable than anything you could accomplish with monetary means.


@Lionharts #TheFebruaryTarot Queen of Cups Challenge Prompt
Questions for February 10th and 11th

Romantic Tarot, Fated Oracle, and Voie de la Découverte IntérieureWhat are my three best personality traits?

Seven of  Swords – Your ability to know what’s right for you. Peer pressure and indecisiveness are very rarely an issue for you because you follow your gut on what’s right for you, and leave behind what isn’t.

Nine of Cups – Your constant seeking of satiation. This trait often pushes you too hard, but at the same time? It ensures that you are always moving towards something good and seeking out what will make you happy.

Knight of Pentacles – Your determination to keep going. Your willingness to try new things, and keep trying, even when it feels like it’s taking longer than you’d like to get where you want to go.

How am I guided to use them?

All three of the cards in this part of the exercise speak of your romantic relationship with your partner and how to use these qualities in that relationship. (My brain was on him and it skewed the reading, and I decided to just go with it.)

Sexual Chemistry – Just as mentioned above.  You found what works for you and go with it, discarding what doesn’t as nothing more than things that aren’t of interest.  There’s no pressure to do things you don’t, and if there was, you wouldn’t stand for it.

Karmic Relationship – So many times, people think of “karmic” as being something bad, and yet in your case it is just the opposite. Through your skills at appreciating what works for you and willingness to seek it out. You are also willing to share that goodness with others, and through sharing, you also receive.

Sacred Friendship – Others are here to support you so that you do not have to push yourself so hard. They can assist you in staying at a steady pace instead of constantly trying to force yourself to move faster and get more done on your own. These friendships are sacred, not for what they can do for you… but for the caring and support that goes both ways in the process.

How can I nurture my passions today?

Don’t hold yourself back from the things you want (Résistance). Instead, allow them to fill you up (Lumière) and sate you from the inside out (Amour). You hold yourself back as a form of self-punishment.  Instead, nurture your passions by leaning into those things that light you up, warm your heart, and make you happy.


#DiscordTarotholicsFeb2023 Challenge Prompt
Questions for February 9th thru 11th

Cats of Aux Tarot - King of Cups, Five of Cups, Five of Wands, The FoolWhat is one of your most positive qualities?

Five of Cups – This card encourages you to see your natural inclination towards pessimism as a positive quality. It allows you to not be taken by surprise when unpleasant things happen, and helps you in being prepared for the future.

How can you help the positive quality flourish in your life?

King of Cups – In order for this quality to remain positive, you need to have the guidance of somebody who can identify when it is going into a negative space and effecting you emotionally, and is there to help keep you on a more positive track in its usage. Gideon often fills this role for you.

What is one of your least positive qualities?

The Fool – Sometimes you enthusiastically dive into things without thinking them through first. This often ends up with you feeling overwhelmed when you later find yourself with too much on your plate at once.

How can you utilize the least positive quality to your benefit?

Five of Wands – That enthusiasm has the ability to stir others up into a passion, if you share it with them, instead of putting it all on your own shoulders. They may go about adding their help and energy to the cause in different ways than you’re used to, just make sure you’re open to those differences.


Daily Self Kindness

This is a catch-up post, and I don’t remember what I might have done as a self-kindness on this day.

The Forgotten Cartomancy Reading

The prompt for this reading came from one of my Discord servers and is as follows: “Let’s talk to our divination tool of choice about what we’ve forgotten!”

Urban Legends Playing CardsWhat have I forgotten that needs remembering at this time?

Three of Diamonds and Seven of Spades – Working together is the way forward, and not something to be moving away from right now. Just because the holiday rush is over doesn’t mean that they don’t still want to help, or that you don’t still need that help that they’re offering.

What do I need to forget about that I’m holding onto?

King of Swords and Queen of Hearts – Rigidity and a sharp tongue is not nurturing. If you want give yourself the support that you need, you can’t be harsh with yourself all the time.  Soften the tone of your inner voice and give yourself some comfort and support instead.
