I enjoyed this meditation so very much, and as the quote above says, there are no perfect days, just perfect moments to grasp.

I love the tone of the tarot cards this week. It’s light and loving, and the two number fours are Angel numbers.

The Four of Wands indicates a celebration or homecoming. When this card appears in a Tarot reading, it is the perfect time to celebrate with those you love most. You feel supported and secure, knowing you are with those who love you and care about you. The Four of Wands tells you that after a period of rapid growth and expansion it’s now time to pause and celebrate what you have achieved so far. Step back for a moment and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Acknowledge your hard work and give yourself permission to take a small break before embarking on the next phase of your journey. In numerology, four symbolizes stability and firm foundations, and with the Four of Wands, you are now enjoying a period of happiness and security. This card indicates a sense of harmony and balance as well as completion and thus denotes a time of peace and contentment in life that comes as the result of hard-fought efforts. If you have been working on a project, you will reach an important milestone and have reason to celebrate. If you just wrapped up your project, the Four of Wands represents the personal gratification of a job well done, a goal attained, and a vision beginning to be realized. You should be proud!

When the Four of Cups turns up in a Tarot reading, new invitations and opportunities are flowing to you, but for now, you’re saying “no” and turning them away. Perhaps the prospects do not interest you, or your cup is full, or you already have too much on your plate. Use your discernment to decide on what is truly important to you, and don’t be afraid to decline new projects that don’t align with your future path. The Four of Cups can also indicate a time when you are turning your attention and your energy internally, to realign to this new phase of your life. You know that you need to be standing on terra firma before you can decide your next steps. This card invites you to bring your attention inward and re-evaluate your situation to find a deeper meaning in what you do. Also, The Four of Cups may show that you have shut yourself off from new opportunities because you have been hurt or rejected before. The man in this card has his arms crossed as if protecting himself and closing off from the external world. Check in on a soul level and question whether shutting yourself down is the best course of action, or if it’s time to open up to the possibilities available to you.

In its purest form, The Lovers card represents conscious connections and meaningful relationships. While The Lovers card typically refers to a romantic tie, it can also represent a close friendship or family relationship where love, respect, and compassion flow. It is a card of open communication and raw honesty. On a more personal level, The Lovers card represents getting clear about your values and beliefs. You are figuring out what you stand for and your philosophy. At its heart, The Lovers is about choice. The choice about who you want to be in this lifetime, how you connect with others and on what level, and what you will and won’t stand for. To make good choices, you need to be clear about your personal beliefs and values – and stay true to them. Finally, The Lovers card encourages you to unify dual forces. You can bring together two parts that are seemingly in opposition to one another and create something that is whole, unified, and harmonious. In every choice, there is an equal amount of advantage and disadvantage, opportunity and challenge, positive and negative. When you accept these dualities, you build the unity from which love flows.


You worked hard to achieve a goal. Don’t hesitate to celebrate your accomplishments with gusto! And, when a new opportunity presents itself, make sure you check with your internal gauge to see if it’s right for you. Then, always communicate openly and honestly, and don’t be afraid to find the balance between dualities.

The celebration card really fits in the past position. On Saturday, I gathered with a group of authors at a local author’s home and had the awesome privilege of meeting my fellow Story Empire contributor and friend, Joan Hall in person. We’ve known each other online for years, but it was so special to get to hug her and visit. It also resonates with me because my new book, Saddled Hearts releases on Wednesday, and that is the perfect reason to celebrate. At the same time, it’s good to take a step back and breathe before going forward with a new project. So, deep breath!

I don’t think we’ve seen this Dragon Card before and wow, it’s gorgeous!

Royal Blue and Gold Dragon. Strengthens you to stand in your power with wisdom. Awaken to your own majesty. Wear your cloak of power with pride.

What about you? Can you relate to any of the cards this week? I hope so! Make it a great week!

  1. It was nice to see you with Joan. My daughter lives in Texas, but not near any of my current author friends. The Fours in the readings align perfectly with me. I never knew their meanings, but Four has always been my favorite number. Subconsciously, is four my favorite number because of what they represent? Something to think about for sure.

    1. I love it when we are drawn to a certain number without knowing why. Then discovering the why makes it all the more special. I’ve always been drawn to any multiples of 4s. It was wonderful to get to meet Joan. Truly special! Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment!

  2. Your quote from Tai… I love it so much!
    Your reading is uplifting and eye-opening as always. I think we often forget that the smallest of accomplishments should still be celebrated. Goodness knows in the world we live in today, the constant flow of hardships, we deserve celebrations. Thank you for sharing such beautiful words, Jan.
    I’m glad to hear you & Joan were able to meet face-to-face. It’s such a neat experience after knowing one another for so long. What a lovely moment. ❤
    Congrats on the new release and all the exciting things you have going on!

    1. I think sometimes we have to give ourselves permission to celebrate accomplishments. It’s okay to bask in a little glory once in a while. And I agree. I would never want to argue with a dragon. 🙂 Hugs back to you, my dear!

  6. Jan, I think my celebration card is in the right position for already happened. Even though this book festival over Saturday and Sunday was pretty much a bust, I received so much unexpected recognition which was a balm for my soul. It was very nice. Now to get this book finished! Love you, Sister.

    1. We all need recognition for our hard work, sister. And it certainly doesn’t come in money, so any accolades are welcomed! Yes! Now on to finishing Emma’s story. Thank you for stopping by. Love you!


  7. That is perfect for you, Jan. Time to celebrate your accomplishments and also consider the next opportunity.

    I so enjoyed the gathering on Saturday, especially meeting you in person. It was like we’d known one another for years (and not just online). ❤

    1. I totally agree, Joan! It was wonderful and a bonus to get to meet John, too. And yes, it is time to celebrate the birth of the new book, but Lordy, I have lots of work ahead with the tour. 🙂 I can do it, though. And I will take time to stop and breathe now and then. Thank you for leaving a comment today and have a wonderful week ahead!
