Today’s meditation was skipped.
Today’s draw is the Five of Cups, which is traditionally a representation of pessimism, doomsday thinking, regrets and disappointments, and occasionally, failure (or at the very least, the perception of failure).
Look it up for a little dude that just fell out of his cup while the others are all topsy-turvy. And from the spill from the overturned cup then becomes a path that leads into a tunnel in the distance.
What’s on the other side of the tunnel?
The imagery in this card is a reminder that misfortune can sometimes lead to new things if you’re willing to change your perspective from one of pessimism over to optimism.

What guidance or advice can help me right now?
Left Three Cards – Beauty and magic in the world is all around you. It’s not about seeking some remarkable thing or reaching for more, but rather it’s about appreciating what is here and now more, and delving deeper into those things to really see all of the beauty and magic they have to offer.
What signs should I pay close attention to today?
Center Two – Laughter. Make sure that you are looking for and paying close attention to those that retreat from it rather than going with the flow.
In what area am I asked to follow my intuition?
Right Two Cards – Seek out those things that bring you joy. It’s often hard for you to identify these things, as you are hardwired to lean into self-sabotage and self-punishment instead. Your intuition can help you in seeking out true joy and identifying the things that bring it out for you.

Where should I listen to the wild one within me?
Queen of Wands – There is great joy in your creativity, and a freedom there in that creative spark that you love and cherish. Foster that creativity within yourself today and every day.
What personal strength should I use and nurture today?
Three of Swords – Just as you are able to function (and in fact rejoice) while it is raining and the weather is crap, so too can you move through times of trial and disappointment. Make sure you aren’t letting small disappointments ruin your whole day.
What can I do to honor my independence right now?
Three of Pentacles – Work with others. Prove to yourself that independence does not require solitude.

I pulled my decks for September today. I know this sounds more like work than a self-kindness, but after how much I struggled with leaving them on the shelves and pulling what I want to use daily last month, this is a huge self kindness to myself to pull them all for the month ahead.
