Wiped Away and Forgotten

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Golden Age of Romance Comics Tarot - Death cardToday’s draw is the Death card, which is traditionally a representation of organic change. This is different to sudden and chaotic change like what is represented in the Tower, and is instead about change that develops over time and may, or may not, come to a tipping point at some time along the way. It isn’t sudden, but a development where something ends so that something new can begin.

Here in this imagery we see a grieving woman at her man’s grave while a figure stands in the distance.  The grave marker is for “Captain Alder” and we see a figure in the background in military garb.  It makes me think of the echoes of the past that linger in our periphery even when it’s necessary to move on.

Today’s card is a reminder that the death of something in your life isn’t necessarily going to erase all of the lingering traces of it from your life.  There will always be remnants and echoes going forward that remind us of that time and linger in our minds.  That’s okay.  Not everything has to be wiped away and forgotten.


Daily Self Kindness

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