Today’s card of meditation: the Ten of Pentacles.

Wealth. Status. Family. Community. Royalty. A mastery of skills, and total control over resources. All may strive a majority of their lives to reach this condition, but what happens once you’re there? Is it nirvana to have no earthly worries? Is it soul crushing to have the responsibility of a kingdom under your wing?

If you’re reading this, what do you think?

A personal reading, regarding a client at my day job.

“What will it take to make this guy happy?” 9 of Cups reversed.

He won’t be happy with surface level performance. This guy needs deep, analytical, and effective answers in order to feel satisfied with the work. No bullshit.

“Why am I so sensitive to this, why does it get under my skin?” Ace of Swords.

It’s critcism, and it hurts because it’s true.

“How do I make sure I’m happy while putting up with this?” 2 of Pentacles reversed.

Fake it till you make it? (I hate pretending everything’s fine when I think otherwise). Soften the mistakes by pulling everyone’s attention to other priorities, and thus to offset the shame feelings.

Okay Tarot, thanks!

Tarot de Marseilles (1601)

Good Morning. Today’s advice is the two of cups.

Love, partnership, and duality. An ebb and flow between two or more souls–a sensually charged dance. When we find a piece of ourselves in another we might lose sight of everything else around us–tunnel vision. Pulled into and fixated by the shiny, attractive light. Moth to a flame, infatuation. This risk aside, this card indicates the value and benefit of being intimate with others. Cooperative, mutual exchange.

Card of Meditation: The Moon reversed.

The Ruler of Flux and Reflux. Pisces–the emotionally elastic sign of fluctuation. Wild wolves howl under Luna’s gaze. Towers of Severity and Mercy lock away arcane knowledge. A turbulent river escorts anything in its path forcibly down the riverbed towards the ocean shore.

In its reversal the ego is disturbed. Our ever present fears are actively trying to fight off Luna’s influence, which only makes her stronger. An unwillingness to submit to lunacy means for erroneous and damaging situations. It’s through the process of darkness and madness that we can find the inner light of The Sun.

The Hermetic Tarot (1980, Godfrey Dowson)

Strength reversed came up in a client’s …

Strength reversed came up in a client’s reading recently, and related to their past selves in a position of submission (weakened will-power). Placing this card reversed can go in a few directions. Upright, it’s about inner strength and courage–life throws all kinds of garbage at you, and you have the power to not let it shake you or corrupt you.

In reverse I see this card first as a matter of the ego unrestrained: conceit, boasting, and burdening others. This sounds in some ways similar to The Devil upright, and so I might consider this card in the sense of loss. Loss to confidence, power, or creativity. Rose Gwain defines it as “the lower nature dominating…loss of objectivity” (Discovering Yourself Through the Tarot).

I call my daily pulls “cards of meditation” as it’s something to ponder the whole day. This card is for today, should I feel cornered or out of sorts… something to keep me centered.

Queen of Pentacles. This one is amiable yet stern. Strict on regiment and focused on growth. It’s some one who seeks out what kind of efforts others can bring to the table. Once witnessed, criticism may follow to refine those qualities in another. This is in part to help those who need quality feedback and coaching, but its also to measure and adjust one’s own abilities compared to others. On good days they just want everyone to be healthy, productive, and happy.

Yesterday, everything was going well when I suddenly was overwhelmed with a random fit of depression. I’m not quite sure why or where it came from. It was hard and heavy… I pretty much stopped functioning for the day. Depression is weird and happens, even when things are going well I guess.

I asked: what, why, and advice. Looks like I really am just way inside my head. I overwhelm myself with the constant generation of ideas. Under the influence of the moon, if those thoughts are about things that stress me out or set me down a bad path… well that can get ugly. I guess I know now that I need vulnerability in these times. I need to connect and talk it out, even if it’s ugly and nonsensical.

Well, I’m feeling much better today 🙇‍♂️

I’d love to get back into daily card pulls, so here’s an effort 😅

Card of Meditation: Three of Rods.

This card is often described as one who’s in waiting. They may wait for past actions to unfold or are readying themselves for answers to come. But, what if they were waiting indefinitely? The state of mind this would create might be a softness of heart, yet strength of will, and eventual acceptance of conditions.

This card may be named by the word “integrity”. It’s a matter of always being at peace regardless of the condition of things. This requires a strong moral compass and undying hope for what might be or what may never will be.

The Aquarian Tarot (1970, David Palladini)

The King of Wands – A natural leader emboldened with vision. The power and ability to solve problems through self-direction or the direction of others. The adrenaline rush of action, activity, and clarity of focus.

When reversed – an arrogant leader. Leading with blind ambition that must be calmed and redirected to the path of sense.  Hubris in one’s passions.

Finished this painting this week, and we’re on to the second-place winner in the poll–the Ace of Cups! Moving along through the deck.
