Where Are You Going?

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Gay Tarot - Three of WandsToday’s draw is the Three of Wands, which is traditionally a representation of of the first steps that come after planning turns to action. It is about looking ahead, direction, and progress.

In this card’s imagery, the “ghosts” in the image are a glimpse of the future as a father sends his child off to school for the first time, and we see a forward echo of the scene replaying again and again as she grows up.  Each send off a first step towards a new adventure.

The message in this card tells us that each small step is a step forward on a path that leads into the future.  The choices we make matter as they determine the direction that we go in.

Topic for February 19th
: Do Spread 3
Instructions: Today’s spread is a bit different than our normal in that we are not drawing random cards, but rather, we are picking out the cards we think fit best. For each position, pick the card you feel fits the question best for you, and then explain why.

The Pooh Tarot Mini Edition - Queen of Coins, The Hanged Man, Two of Coins, Five of Cups, Six of SwordsWhich one card do you feel sums you up best?

Queen of Coins – The older I get, the more I feel like I slip further and further towards the Queen of Coins. Yes, I strive always to be the Hanged Man, constantly looking for new and different perspectives. But, I feel that more and more I begin to embody the Queen of Coins as I age, seeking to support those that I care about in the ways I’m able to best do so.

Which one card do you feel represents your strengths?

The Hanged Man – Mentioned above, I strive for perspectives beyond my own.  My strength is in that effort and my desire to be open minded and seek more than my own world view.  I seek to see and understand the world through the eyes of others every day.

Which one card do you feel represents your limitations?

Two of Coins – I try and try to balance pessimism with hope,  fun and responsibility, work and rest. Balance is not an easy thing for me when there is so much to do and I am constantly trying to find that balance and adjust… and constantly feel that I am failing at this.  Because there is no steady and consistently stable balance and continuous adjustments need to be made, it never feels like I quite manage to find the balance I need.

What kind of issues do you feel that you need to work on?

Five of Cups – Pessimism and negativity are my natural inclination. This is an issue that I am working at, but it’s a long road that takes a lot of conscious effort to counteract.  The pessimism has a greater influence on my mental health than I’d realized through the first thirty years of my life.  Now that I know this, I work diligently to balance that negativity with hope and optimism, but…. sometimes I lose track and backslide.

What message do you want to share with the world?

Six of Swords – You do not have to stay in a situation that is not healthy for you.  There are always choices to be made… options to consider.  Yes, some of them require actually imploding your life and starting anew, but usually? It’s worth it in the end when your goal is reaching for something more right, healthy, and fitting for you.

Questions for February 19th and 20th

Gay Tarot - Ace of Swords, The Emperor, Four of Wands, Six of SwordsWhat should I stop avoiding?

Ace of Swords – Instead of keeping everything to yourself, make sure that you are communicating clearly with others. Open and honest communication is key to healthy relationships with those in your life.


The Emperor – In your life you carry a lot of responsibility for others, but you can’t handle that responsibility well if you don’t communicate clearly with those around you to express what is needed from others and “direct traffic” as needed.

How can I live and love more freely?

Six of Swords Rex atop Four of Wands – Don’t let your worries about what other people think keep you from enjoying what you have and celebrating what you’ve built.

This is catch-up post, and I cannot remember what I might have done as a self-kindness for the day.
