Today’s meditation was skipped.
Today’s draw is the Wheel of Fortune, which is traditionally a representation of luck (both good and bad), changing circumstances, the ups and downs of life, and the cyclical nature of life and the world.
What really catches my eye in this card is that half of the wheel that the woman holds is aflame, and she is blindfolded.
She has no warning for where her hands may land on the wheel as she has turned a blind eye to what she’s doing. This, to me, feels like a message to make sure that you are paying attention. Inattention may get you burned.

Philosophical Question for August 10th: Can we understand good without evil?
Reading Summary: No. We identify good and evil through experience, research (Bottom Left Card), social opinion (Top Card), and comparison (Top Card and directional gaze/interaction with Bottom Right Card).
Take Away: The answer in these cards is that it’s impossible to understand one without the other, for we need to have experiences and comparisons to help us define both good and evil.
At the same time, sometimes we learn these distinctions through society rather than personal experience, but there is still a need for comparison for there to truly be a depth of understanding on the themes of good and evil.

Questions for August 7th thru 10th
Knight of Swords and Commando Turtles – You are learning to communicate and delegate better in your business, so that you’re not so spread out and are getting the help you need to get things done.
What makes me happy?
The Hierophant and Burnt Memories – Getting a chance to help others in discovering a path that’s right for them, which also allows them to discard what isn’t working for them in preference of an exploration of something better.
What should I focus on organizing in my life?
Queen of Cups and The Longing Scarecrow – Work on supporting those things that you need to make you feel happy and in control.
For me, right now, that is finishing the shelving I’ve been working on, and finding a sense of closure with that project.
How can I make my life more entertaining?
Three of Swords Rx and The Secret Laboratory – Make sure you aren’t sinking into disappointment and self recrimination when experimentation goes awry.

I didn’t work on the organization of the shelves today even though I wanted to. I just don’t think my back and hips could handle it today.
