Finding the Boon in Slow Moments

Today’s meditation was skipped.

The Funny Little Lizard Tarot - Two of CupsToday’s draw is the Two of Cups, which is traditionally a representation of unions, duality, and partnerships in the area of one’s emotions, relationships, and creativity. This often comes across as harmonious attractions and themes of mutual attraction, although not always in a romantic manner.

What stands out the strongest to me in the imagery in this card is the eggs.  To me, the eggs speak of not just the union of two entities, but that that union is creating something beautiful together.  This, in turn, brings to mind Gideon and I… and how we create something beautiful together every time we write together.

The message in today’s card is a reminder to take the fact that business was slow for the past few days as a boon. It means that you get to write with Gideon today and create a beautiful story with him.  It means you get to do something you enjoy with someone you care deeply for instead of putting your nose to the grindstone from the time you wake to when you go to bed today.


@the_mystic_star’s April #MysticStarChallenge Prompt
Prompts for April 3rd thru 6th

The Earth Spirit OracleWhat card symbolizes my ‘Current Situation’ that is hiding in the Shadows?

The Ocean – The root cause of your feelings of overwhelm has yet to be unearthed, but instead lingers beneath the surface like a mystery yet to be solved.

What do I need to do to clearly see what is hiding in the Shadows?

The Wind – Movement. You need to begin getting outside more instead of simply thinking about it. You need the fresh air and exercise, and the time in nature to connect and reflect so that the cobwebs within you can be blown out.

How can I better understand what is hiding from me?

Destiny – Stop seeing it (that hidden element) as something to change or heal. This hidden part of you that spurs on your sense of overwhelm is an integral piece of who you are; a part of your make up. It doesn’t need healing or changing, but instead needs acceptance.

How can I minimize the resistance I have to this hidden aspect?

Abundance – Lean into feelings of abundance instead of your sense of scarcity. That scarcity is what is driving this hidden aspect of yourself, for it is abundance you seek. Help this part of yourself see that you already have an abundant life, and that things are not as dire as this hidden part of yourself wants to believe that they are.


@Lionharts #TheAprilTarot Light My Fire Challenge Prompt
: What can I engage in to bring more joy into my life right now? Draw up to three cards.

The Funny Little Lizard Tarot - Six of Swords, Ace of Wands, Two of SwordsSix of Swords – Move away from those things that are bad for you and frustrate you instead of lingering in them. Whether you linger due to a sense of responsibility, obligation, or self flagellation, you need to let them go instead of trying to hold onto them and forcing yourself to make them work.

Ace of Wands – Let your inspiration and curiosity lead the way to discovering new things you will enjoy. Whether it’s self care, or jewelry techniques, hobbies, or just new storylines and characters with Gideon.  Open yourself up and let yourself stretch into the idea that inspiration is knocking.

Two of Swords – Be decisive about leaning into that spark of inspiration, instead of lingering in these bad habits and situations. Complacency is not your friend.


Daily Self Kindness

As suggested by my card of the day, once I got my work in hand, I reached out to Gideon to do a bit of play together and bring some enjoyment into  my day.
