Ace of Wands reversed. An inversion of will-power, one that’s mismanged and a poor shot. Rushing to a climax without regard to details or dynamic components.
Focus. Going from 0 to 100 is a disaster. It’s all about feeling the delicate transition through stages. Shift through all gears contiguously and give each level your focused attention. Very much a form of foreplay, it serves a valuable purpose.
Don’t jump to the end right away, you’ve only just begun. Enjoy the process, savor each step. 🃏 Tarot de Marseilles 🃏
One who is that “sad drunk” paranoid and lost in a deep inner struggle. They are seperate from reality, and seem to have an inability to respond to others around them because they are preoccupied with processing themselves. The mind becomes heavy, vacuous, and cannibalistic.
This is a drowning, struggling to find emotional and mental land to stand on. Ruled by Cancer, this Queen should find the socialite Gemini within and connect with the outside world to find that firm footing.
Speak out. Find other people who you trust and say how you feel. The more you hold back the more you do yourself a disservice. The more you connect the inner turmoil with outwardly spoken or written word the more you release yourself from this conflict.
Currently seeking healing and grounding: 7 of Wands.
As responsibilities pop up and demand attention: strike them. Management and delegation are key in maintaining control at this time. Do not let others take your power, but instead offer them an imitation of it to occupy their minds.
Keep up appearances, do what you can, the rest just needs to be pushed in a general direction away from yourself.
The Rider-Waite Tarot (Pamela Colman Smith and A.E Waite)
This card again… okay… 3 of Disks.. You know last time I pulled this I was having trouble working then suddenly I spent the whole weekend working on things that needed to be done. I guess it’s not over.
Passion of Mars in the Diligence of Capricorn. An explosion of effort in creative and laborious activities. Expect to be busy and engaged with others as things develop.
How badly do you want it? Do your actions equate it?

Advice to stay grounded and centered this week: Knight of Wands.
Loyalty to friends and passion in works. Always on the go and ready for exploration. Take on challenges with a strong will and sense of humor. Display feelings on the sleeve so everyone knows you’re for real.
Sometimes to stay balanced doesn’t mean keeping your head down. Especially if one’s nature is already as such, you need a little oomph to counter-balance it.
Walls are limitations to freedom; However, our energy, focus, and resources are finite. Boundaries become grounding when we reach degrees of exhaustion. The balance in this is where do walls become obstacles and where do they become self-preservation?
Can we have both? Maybe these things are negotiable?
Four of Pentacles, The Hermetic Tarot (1979, Godfrey Dowson)
Card of meditation is (again) The Magician. Never cock block creativity! When inspiration strikes be the lightning rod it grounds through you. Otherwise the power is internalized and can become corrosive.
This may feel like an impulse to think about, act on, write about, dance to, draw, paint, or speak. Let it out and let it flow. You are the conduit through which the Universe is attempting to make things manifest. It can be the urge to resolve issues and problem solve through conversation or action. You don’t want the Cosmos to be bitter, do you?
A super busy day so I’m only posting my reading from this morning now!
Looking back at the previous days and reflecting: The Sun reversed.
I thought maybe it’s a soured joy or love. Embodiment of success with an air of doom. But I’m considering that it means finding light in the dark. Yesterday I was surrounded by friends and laughter almost out of nowhere. It may not last, but it felt so so nice and needed in that moment.
The next few days coming up: The Magician.
I was thinking a lot about hosting a group ritual and got very excited so maybe I should go through with it! But really this card tells me to have no doubt, no hesitation with making dreams reality and to just follow through with that deep inner divine inspiration to act on dreams.
I’ve been in such a slump, I hope the cycles will change in my favor soon enough.
The Rider-Waite Tarot (1910, A.E Waite and Pamela Colman Smith)
Hello, I have been dormant with my updates for sometime now. My relationship with Tarot has been very distant as well. I consider it a natural and necessary break that will happen every so often.
Card of Meditation: The Fool An irresponsible handling of power. One who looks in the wrong directions before taking a leap of faith. Listen to the warning signs around you as they are trying to help your cause. No matter how you try to prepare, you may fall to opposing forces regardless. What could save you is your own passionate spirit swept up in these moments of ignorance… or bliss.
