As the holidays get closer, the frantic pace of life around us seems to increase. I hope this post today will serve as a reminder to take the time to stay focused, grounded, and centered through it all. A good sense of humor also helps.
I found this meditation and affirmation to be uplifting. I hope you will, too.
The tarot cards gave me a bit of a challenge today because they all see so opposite. Hopefully, I found the right message in them.
How odd for the King of Pentacles to show up at a time when we are all stretched to the limit trying to purchase gifts for loved ones, not to mention the added food expense. So, this gave me pause. However, the past position makes a little more sense to me.
The King of Pentacles indicates that you are confident and successful at attracting and managing wealth. Not only do you identify opportunities for growth and success, but you also draw upon your self-discipline and control to manage your wealth and invest it wisely for the long term. The arrival of the King of Pentacles indicates that you can translate your vision into something tangible, practical, and often very lucrative. This card often indicates the final fulfillment of a creative task. (That I can relate to) Through diligence, responsibility, and attention to detail, you can finally say that you have completed your task or attained your goal. You can now enjoy all that you have accomplished and the successes you have created. A methodical, planned, and well-thought-out approach will lead you to success.
The Seven of Cups has shown up for us several times, and it is all about making choices. There is so much available to us, and what we decide will determine our next step. But be careful! You can be prone to illusion and unrealistic ideals. An opportunity with promises of more money, more fame, or more power may sound appealing, but as you look deeper into what is on offer, you may realize it’s not everything it’s cracked up to be. Your ego may pull you in a specific direction, but it’s important you check in with your Higher Self first. Evaluate your options and dig below the surface to discover what’s involved with each choice.
Finally, The Hermit advises us to take a break from everyday life and draw our energy inward. You realize that your most profound sense of truth and knowledge is within yourself and not in the distractions of the outside world. You leave behind the mundane to set off on a journey of self-discovery, led only by your inner wisdom and guiding light. When you allow yourself to tune in to your inner guiding light, you will hear the answers you need and grow wise beyond your years. Find your light, shine it on your soul and create your unique path. You will see what lies ahead of you – not miles upon miles, but enough to know where to step next. From there, take one step at a time. This card may appear when you are at a pivotal point in your life and considering a new direction. It also represents the desire to turn away from a consumerist or materialistic society to focus on your inner world.
Winding down to the end of 2022, I hope we can all look back and see that we’ve had some measure of success, either financially or by completing creative projects using the tried and true ways that work for each of us. Learning what works comes from trial and error, choosing different avenues, and always striving for the path that enhances our best selves. Also, at the end of the year, it’s a good idea to set aside some time for honest introspection led by our inner guiding light. Never lose sight of what’s most important this time of year when we are bombarded with consumerism.
Look what a gorgeous little dragon we have to accompany our message today!
That’s it for today! Make it a great week!
