Referral Pains

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Navigators Tarot of the Mystic Sea - Three of SwordsToday’s draw is the Three of Swords, which is traditionally a representation of depression, grief, and disappointments.

This theme often seems strange to people coming from the Swords suit, but it is important to remember that often how we react emotionally is rooted in how we think and what expectations we allowed ourselves to have before everything falls to shit.

Today’s message is a reminder to look closely at what really hurts. Sometimes the worst parts of a painful situation aren’t actually the wounds themselves, but how much we allow ourselves to blow everything out of proportion.

Tarot Reading with the I'm Right You're Wrong Game CardsWhat am I letting go of in July?

Top Four Cards – You have been working on letting go of your reactions to nonsensical moments of intense irritation that make no sense and cause others to go quiet in self defense.

What am I stepping into in August?

Bottom Three Cards – There are moments of insensitivity incoming in August that can make you into a raging dickhead if you’re not careful about it. Don’t be a dickhead.  Keep a tight reign on yourself to avoid these issues.

Question: What can be done to make Ms B’s move go more smoothly?

PIXAR Postcard Set and Navigators Tarot of the Mystic Sea - Nine of Wands, Six of Swords, Three of WandsReading Summary: The outlier in these cards is the nine of wands, which stands apart in color and always except beneath the feet of the figure and the egg in the three of wands. The speaks of leading down both barriers and boundaries for a time in order to get things done.

The figure in the six of swords connects with the grain and the soil in the cart above, it speaks of a need for patience. Hard work takes time. The more you rush, the less you’ll see and be able to catch before it becomes a permanent problem.

There is a heavy color connection between the six of swords, the three of wands, and the the anchor card. both of the Terra cards speak of movement and action being taken while the Theme in the anchor card is all about hard work and organization. Don’t let laziness or a desire to avoid conflict make things more difficult for yourself later on. Do it right the first time from the start.

Take Away: Take your time on the move and everything will go more smoothly all the way around.  There’s going to be a couple of setbacks along the way, but if you practice patience instead of trying to plow forward, it will sort itself out in the end.  Just don’t push.

I am playing some serious catch up and I have no idea what the self-kindness for this day might have been.

Sit With It For a Bit

Today’s meditation was un-timed and spent naked in the center of the bed under the ceiling fan.

Animal Spirit Tarot - Ace of CupsToday’s draw is the Ace of Cups, which is traditionally a representation of the seed of new beginnings in the area of one’s emotions, relationships, intuition, and creativity.

I had a bit of an emotional upset today, and it was today’s pull that helped me in getting through it.  It reminded me that my emotions, and their intensity especially, are still very new to me.

I’m still learning, and it’s okay to get pissed off sometimes.  It’s also okay to take time to process these emotions instead of shoving them away or reacting to them on the fly.

The message in today’s card is that sometimes it’s important to sit with an emotion until you have an understanding of where the new emotion is rooted, and where your initial reactions are coming from… before you act.

National Lipstick Day
– Pick a physical feature you don’t like about yourself and draw cards for a positive message about this feature. Chosen Feature – My scars.

Lisa Hall's Fairy Tale Tarot (trimmed naked)Reading Summary: You earned your scars through both fighting back against those that would have destroyed you (Left Card) and through incidents that were no fault of your own (Center Card). They mark you as brave and strong (Right Card).

Take Away: There is nothing to be ashamed of in wearing scars earned in defending yourself, standing up for what you believe in, or that are obtained at no fault of your own. Remember that when people stare at your scars, they are not judging you harshly, but seeing just how strong you really are written across your skin.


The #TarotForTheWildSoul Challenge Prompt
Questions for July 22nd and 25th

Animal Spirit TarotWhere do I feel most connected with nature in my current environment?

The Hierophant and Queen of Wands – Currently, due to stalker issues, you’re not able to enjoy going out in nature alone and on your own right now. You need company along for safety. That is your “current environment”.

You feel most connected to nature in this situation when whoever you take along with you is open to you teaching them about your surroundings as well as the rhythms and cycles of nature, and is supportive of your bond with nature and need to be out in it.

What is the element I most deeply resonate with?

Eight of Pentacles – Earth. From the theme of this card, there is a theme that specifically has to do with the honing of one’s skills and constant growth.

The Moon – Water. The Moon here indicates Water, but also speaks of your feelings of uncertainty as you feel your way forward on learning and growth in your emotional intelligence.


Daily Self Kindness

I took lots of mini-breaks today while working in order to cool down, and drank a lot of water.  I think I’m going to need to pick up some Gatorade tomorrow, tho.

Worth Fighting For

Today’s meditation was just over eleven minutes long, and was another of the quiet meditations combined with my piriformis stretching. It was peaceful and quiet, and I again didn’t struggle at all to stay in the “zone” through the entire length.

Yin Yang Cat Tarot - Five of WandsToday’s draw is the Five of Wands, which is traditionally a representation of tests, trials, struggle, and conflict in the area of one’s drive, willpower, enthusiasm, principles, values, or inner spark.

Ever since I got my hands on the Stolen Child Tarot, I see this card differently, as I now see an element of empowerment in the card, instead of just a theme of chaos and conflict.

For that reason, what I see in today’s card is a message that tells us to stand up for what you believe in. If it’s important, it’s worth fighting for.

Questions for July 28th thru 31st

Victorian Meaning of Flowers Oracle and the Yin Yang Cat TarotWhat has my divination work taught me this month?

Bleeding Hearts and Page of Pentacles – Don’t force it. Take your time.

How can I use my July lessons for the journey ahead?

Gardenia, King of Cups atop Four of Swords – You need downtime with Gideon in order to make things feel balanced and right in the world. Avoiding this time is a form of self punishment for you that you need to work on letting go of.

What awareness can I further build on throughout August?

Abulition and Eight of Swords – Stop ignoring and denying yourself the benefits that meditation gives you in your life and your health. You need to work on developing a regular practice that you can depend on doing daily.

How am I guided to give closure to my July journey?

Feverfew and Ace of Swords – It’s time to start really focusing on your inner voice and what it has to say and how it says it. Turn over a new leaf towards a gentler and warmer tone in how you speak with yourself.

Philosophical Question
: Can predestination and free will coexist?

Yin Yang Cat TarotReading Summary: You seek control and choose your passions (King of Wands). You choose your direction on life’s path (Two of Swords), and your interests along the way (Page of Pentacles). But Friday still comes regardless (Friday Cat).

Take Away: Just because there are things that are predestined to happen and places you are predestined to go doesn’t mean you don’t get to choose everything along that path. Just like Friday always arrives eventually, so too do these predestined things sit like landmarks on your path, but that doesn’t determine how you spend your week.


Daily Self Kindness

After I finished with packages today, I soaked in a nice cool bath before bed.

You Hold the Reins

Today’s meditation was just under twelve minutes long. It was another of the quiet, reflective meditations with breathing exercises added in.

The ATLA Tarot - The ChariotToday’s draw is the Chariot card, which is traditionally a representation of control, willpower, determination, and the strength of purpose to “take the reigns” and steer yourself in the path you wish to follow.

I don’t find the imagery in this card particularly helpful or inspiring.  I’m not entirely sure why it’s the illustration for the Chariot card, but I could be missing some meaning that just isn’t connecting for me.

The message in today’s card is to not forget that you control what you do with your day, no one else. If you want to take it easy, take it easy. If you want to get things done, then get things done.

You hold the reins.

#DiscordTarotholicsJul2022 Challenge Prompt
: What do you need to focus on for self care this New Moon?

The ATLA TarotReading Summary: Ignoring your need for Gideon (King of Cups Rx) causes chaos and destruction (The Tower).

Take control of your responsibilities (The Emperor) and use the skills you’ve developed over time (Eight of Pentacles) to make sure that everything is dealt with as needed so that you have the availability to spend the time with him that is needed as well.

Take Away: It’s been hard to get time with him of late, and it’s only through taking control of your responsibilities that you’re going to get that time with him that you need.

Faith and Positivity

Today’s meditation was not timed, and took place in the bottom of the shower while I worked on cooling down.  It was just too hot today.

33.6 Tarot - The StarToday’s draw is the Star card, which is traditionally a representation of hope, renewal, faith, optimism, and the connection of spirituality with other aspects of one’s life path.

Stay positive.

Being vulnerable isn’t always a bad thing and can help you connect more deeply with what matters most.  Keep working with that effort toward optimism.  The more you lean into it, the easier it will become.

Questions for July 25th thru 28th

33.6 Tarot and the StarDragon OracleThe part of my world that inspires me is…

Eight of Pentacles and Time – I am inspired when I can take the time to really sink into a project and contribute all of my focus to honing my skills while I create.

What creative rhythm do I crave?

The Magician and Transformation – I like to move at my own pace. When I’m being creative, I often fall into my own sense of time and place, and through this find a better rhythm that is uniquely my own with which to work with creatively.

When am I least creatively confident?

Five of Cups and Resources – I am least creatively confident when I am feeling my scarcity issues most strongly. This doesn’t have to be an actual reality of scarcity, just the perception is enough.

When am I most creatively confident?

Seven of Cups and Wisdom – I am most creatively confident when I have a time, space, and opportunity to delve into my curiosities and explore them fully.

All or Nothing Day
– What do you need to go “all in” on today?

33.6 TarotReading Summary: Don’t let misfortune strike you down (Ten of Swords). There’s no need for overwhelm or scarcity today (Five of Pentacles Rx atop Ten of Wands Rx). Just go out there and have some fun (The Fool), there are others in your life that will help you learn how to turn in that direction if you let them (The Hierophant).

Take Away: You need to go “all in” on fun today.  Spend time with others who want to share fun times with you and let them help you learn how to cut loose and relax a bit more.  Just let all that other shit go for a bit.

Deal With It and Get It Done

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Universal Wirth Tarot - The HermitToday’s draw is the Hermit card, which is traditionally a representation of inner exploration, self reflection, and healthy alone time.

The imagery in this card weighs heavily for me.  The lantern is so big, the man’s head is ducked… and then there’s the snake at the man’s feet as well.  What I see here is a message about responsibility, and not letting outside forces cause you to lose your focus.

Today’s message is to just put your head down and deal with what needs dealing with.

the Needle Day – What difficult task is today perfect for confronting?

Universal Wirth TarotReading Summary: Get L to help you (Two of Cups) in making sure everything that needs to get done is done (Justice), and you will be far happier with the result (Ten of Cups).

Take Away: Connect and work together with your eye on what you want to achieve, and the results will be as spectacular as the energy that you both put into it. You can’t always do everything on your own, and she doesn’t mind helping (even when she occasionally gripes about it) so don’t hesitate so much in asking for help.
