It’s all up to you… no one else

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Fox & Owl Tarot Mini Deck - The ChariotToday’s draw is the Chariot card, which is traditionally a representation of control in action, moving forward with determination and willpower, motivation, and the success that is bred through these themes.

The imagery in this card says to me that you choose where you go and you choose the speed you get there. At a crossroads it’s entirely up to you which direction you choose, and with a bicycle, so too is it up to you if you walk the bike or ride it, and what speed you choose to ride at.

The message in today’s card is about autonomy and will, and is a reminder that sometimes we all have to seize control and steer our own boat (or bike).

On a personal note, this card comes at a time when I need to be reminded to get on track with catching up on orders, as my vacation is now over and there’s a backlog to plow through.  It is telling me to strap on and get moving, put my determination to the task, and get things done in order to stay on my chosen path and not be lead astray.


#DiscordTarotholicsMar2023 Challenge Prompt
Philosophical Question for March 1st
: Is generosity an inherent virtue, or is it learned behavior?

The Cantigee OracleReading Summary: Sometimes it’s a leap spurred by inner inspiration (A Charmed Leap), but usually it’s learned behavior (The Infinite Web) through experience (The Living Mountain).

Take Away: As seems to be the answer for a lot of different philosophical questions, the cards here indicate that there isn’t just one pat simple answer.

These cards indicate that sometimes, people feel inspired to be generous through their own hearts. This appears to be from people with truly beautiful souls and is a rarity.   Far more often, generosity is learned through the example of others and through our own life experiences.

Questions for March 1st

Fox & Owl Tarot Mini Deck - Page of Swords, Death, Three of Wands, High PriestessWhat am I guided to open myself up to, or explore this month?

Page of Swords and Death – Work on accepting that curiosity and the urge to explore and learn new things has a natural ebb and flow, just like everything else in life. Sometimes it’s on, and you’re ready to go, and other times you just need a bit of a break and to let it go.

How can this help me?

Three of Wands and The High Priestess – This can teach you that you can put things away and pick them back up later, instead of having to plow through to the end all at once. It will also allow you to turn your energy and attention in the direction of your intuition during down times, strengthening that bond with your intuition and how it communicates with you.

I had some play with Gideon while working on orders today.  It was a nice balance.  Tomorrow will be busy, but I needed a little more us time.

📆 Transitioning from February to March

Month End Tarot Reading with Britt's Third Eye Tarot

Here and Now I Exist – Who you are now, in your entirety.

Ace of Cups atop The Chariot – You are diligently working at taking charge of your emotional health and keeping things positive. You’ve made it to March without a depressive episode taking over for the first time in years and you are working to preserve and nurture this new leaf you’ve turned over.

The Slough – What is to be left in the past as you move forward.

Six of Pentacles atop Ten of Swords – Shit happens, as do failures. Don’t be so harsh on yourself during these times. Instead, practice a little generosity with yourself and leave those failures behind you instead of rehashing them again and again.

What Lies Ahead – An ideal state or ideal self you are seeking at this time.

Seven of Cups atop Ten of Cups – It would be wonderful to return to a feeling of gratitude for all the options and opportunities you are presented with instead of feeling overwhelmed by them.

Limitations – Negative influences, opposition, or ill will.

King of Wands – Don’t push so hard. You don’t need to prove to anyone how invested you are in those things that are important to you… you don’t even have to prove it to yourself.

The Boon – Positive influences, higher guidance, or divine intervention.

The Hanged Man – Work on seeing the things you are passionate about from a different perspective than that burning need for advancement and success. What drew you to them in the first place? Work at recapturing this perspective rather than the less exciting ones you currently entertain.

The Wound – An unpleasant past experience or event that is ripe for some support and healing.

The Moon – Feelings of uncertainty need moments of fear and vulnerability. These feelings don’t need to lead you into a dark pit.

Nostalgia – A positive past experience or event to acknowledge, reflect upon, and enjoy.

Two of Pentacles – Remember the reasons and purposes behind why you started on your journey to seek a better work/life balance. It can align you back to your goals and help you stay on track.

A Warning – Something coming that can be prevented or overcome.

Four of Swords – Unintended down time. Take care of yourself and don’t allow yourself to fall into unhealthy stagnancy. Healthy rest only.

Empowerment – A future opportunity to work toward.

Ace of Swords – Communicate. Open up to others and, in doing so, you seize the opportunity to have more control over your life.

Message from the Spirit World – When you stand back and really look and listen, you see much more than you would normally. Make sure that you share your observations with others. Don’t keep it to yourself.

Message from the Mind’s World – Keep in mind that you can’t find happiness if you’re too busy trying to bury yourself under the weight of failures and responsibility.

Message from the Physical World – You cannot plow forward full steam ahead if you can’t see where you are going. Seek some balance and you’ll get much farther in the long run.
