Today’s meditation was skipped because it’s an orders day and, honestly? It’s too fucking hot and miserable.
Today’s draw is The Magician, which is traditionally a representation of having all the tools and skills needed to achieve your goals. The card is about resourcefulness to manifest the results that you want and being inspired to carry things through to fruition.
Sometimes when we’re working towards a goal we can feel like we just don’t have everything together (or can’t manage to get it together) and the endeavor is therefore going to fail.
And the thing is? No matter how prepared we are? Sometimes that’s going to happen.
The key is to take that failure and remember that we’re still here. We can still try again, and adjust our approach to give us a better chance of succeeding.
As long as we’re still here? There’s always room for learning and improvement. There’s always room to try again for the things you really want, and each failed try will only make the next effort that much better than the one before it.

Question: How can I improve upon my self care?
Take Away: I often meditate with crystals, which is how “Crystal Visions” comes into play in the meditation aspect. The thing is? I don’t know why I keep avoiding my practice, but I’m self aware enough to know that no amount of excuses can conceal the fact that that’s exactly what I’m doing.
The cards here are right, though. I need to get back to it. It’s beneficial on so many levels and avoiding it is holding me back not just in my health and well-being, but also in my growth.
DECK USED: WILDERNESS COLLIDE ORACLE
#DiscordTarotolicsJun2021 Challenge Prompt
Topic: About differences…
Question: How can I resolve differences between myself and others with less anxiety?
Reading Summary: Spend less energy worrying (Nine of Swords Rx) over if things might turn out badly (Three of Swords Rx), more authority and sharing of inspirational perspectives. Be passionate and innovative, and use that energy to inspire others to your way of thinking (King of Wands).
Take Away: So… this reading was about a little anxiety riddled character conversation the other day in the literary roleplay/writing realm that Gideon and I are in. Sometimes, with some people, I feel like I’m walking on glass as I fulfill my leadership responsibilities. It just goes that way, you know? Things that should be a discussion feel like a confrontation and a direct challenge rather than having a chat.
So, yeah. The advice here is to worry less about the whole “blowing up in your face” aspect of communication with these type of people, and instead turn the tables and draw them in with ideas and enthusiasm.

I took a nap on orders day. It was a combination of having a full stomach and the heat. I just got so tired that I didn’t have a choice in the matter so I let myself lay down for a couple hours.
