Fertilized Roots

Today’s meditation was skipped (again).

The Lost Tarot - Two of WandsToday’s draw is the Two of Wands, which is traditionally a representation of planning, direction, looking ahead, and future planning that often involves strategy and decision making.

A child playing dress up as the knight he’ll some day become. That is what I see in the imagery for today’s card.

We all had dreams and aspirations when we were young.  Often, they change as we grow older. Our dreams to become princesses and space men turn into more practical things with age.  That’s what growing up is all about.

Today’s card is a reminder of those long ago dreams. It’s about where we come from… and where we’re going.  It’s about looking at those dreams of childhood and acknowledging that they are the fertilizer of the roots from which we have grown, and appreciate how they have influenced who we have become.


ReadingWickedly’s #MayDailyDraw Prompt
Questions for May 17th thru 19th

Tarotgazing Deck and The Hero's Journey Dream OracleWhat desires and drives have escaped my control?

Six of Vessels and The Thin Thin Veil – The influences of your past are still dictating a great deal of your current behavior, proving that when someone passes on, their influences continue to remain for as long as you allow them to.

How can I develop self-mastery?

The Star and You Are Invited – Work at lifting yourself up. Optimism and positivity can give you the strength to break through recalcitrant behavior and join the world more fully. This in turn will give you greater control over your unhealthy habits.

What limits does reality impose on my dreams?

The Tower, The Call atop Be Reborn Daily – Reality will continue to tear things down so that you have to rebuild them into something better. Sometimes this is going to impose limits on your dreams, and at other times it will be a catalyst to changing your dreams entirely into something new and better.


The #ConnectWithYourDeckChallenge Prompt by E Roebuck-Jones
Questions for May 17th and 18th

The Lost TarotHow can I say no to others and be kind?

Be sensitive to their fears (The Star) and use the tools at your disposal (The Magus) to turn around the rejection into something new (Death).

Build hope instead of just shooting someone down on the spot. You can always offer a different perspective or a new opportunity out of a rejection instead of just leaving it as a rejection in and of itself.

What makes it difficult for me to say no to others?

It’s hard for you, in new relationships and friendships (Ace of Cups), to be able to predict how people are going to react (Wheel of Fortune), and you often then worry that if you say no it will turn into a huge chaotic mess of a problem (The Blasted Tower).

This is not usually a problem until you are feeling vulnerable, because during those times conflict isn’t something that you’re particularly prepared to deal with gracefully.


Daily Self Kindness

I’m still playing catch-up and like the last couple of posts, I don’t remember what I might have done as self-kindness during this time, but I know that it was during my time off so I at least got some good rest.

Shining Light Into the Darkness

Today’s meditation was skipped.

AlcheMystical TarotToday’s draw is the Moon card, which is traditionally a representation of uncertainty, illusion, fear of the unknown, anxiety, and the subconscious.

The brightness of this card is what draws my attention in the imagery for this deck.  It’s so very bright that there are no shadows.  Nowhere to hide.  Nothing that cannot be seen clearly, as if it were the sun hung in the sky instead of the moon.

This card’s message for today is to take the time to think through the things you are worried about, identify where you are stuck in a rut due to fear of the unknown, and shine a light on those things so that they will become less intimating and more manageable.

Questions for May 14th thru 16th

Messages From the Ancestors Oracle and The Zenned Out Journey TarotWhat has been my foundational experience with love?

Five of Pentacles and Earth – Scarcity of love, support, and stability while growing up, perpetuated by those that should love you unconditionally.

What kind of people am I attracted to?

Nine of Swords and Caregiver – Those supportive of my mental health struggles. While I don’t need someone to hold my hand all the time, when I am struggling with a major depressive episode, I require people around me that are willing to be both patient and supportive.

What kind of people do I attract?

Ten of Cups and Holy One – You attract those that want to be a part of things. Those that respect your spiritual path and help in supporting your pursuit of personal happiness that includes them in the mix.


The #MysticStarChallenge for May Prompt
Questions for May 17th and 18th

AlcheMystical TarotHow will this Spring Cleaning impact me?

Six of Water and Eight of Air – It will provide an opportunity to reconnect with things in the past that you have previously been willfully blind to.

How can I nurture myself so that I can release all that I can right now?

The Hanged Man and Eight of Fire – Remember that one perspective is never the only perspective. Don’t jump to conclusions too quickly.  Instead, take the time needed to consider multiple angles before acting.


Daily Self Kindness

I’m still playing catch up.  I know that I got a lot of rest during this stretch of time off, though.
