It has been a "me" day. My last day before returning to work after a week off. A little sad as I have so enjoyed this time and the freedom it gives me. Tomorrow, right away at 9am, I have my yearly evaluation meeting. Welcome back to work, Carol. Usually these go well for me so I am not really concerned. However, this year I do have more to say than usual and I need courage to speak. Easier not to speak. Don't want to do that. I spent some time earlier in the week preparing myself some notes (just in case my brain goes blank as I sit there LOL).
I spent a good portion of the afternoon working on the lessons involved in the entrance exam for The Magical Circle school. I'm moving along. As I said before, there is more involved than I realized in the beginning, however, it gets the old brain working and that is important.
My meditation today was interesting. My guide and I spent some time with the Sun. All I could see and think about was the 10 of Cups card. The idea that dreams can come true. The Sun was focused on my head and I could feel the heat, the energy. The hope.
Again from the DruidCraft deck, I drew three cards. My thoughts were focused on tomorrow at work and some little things I need to follow up on relating to some decisions in my life.
1 - The Fool
2 - The Sun
3- 8 of Wands
Very interesting cards today. The Fool again. Got him the other day telling me to not be afraid, to take the risks. Today, as the first card, I thought he is giving me the courage and indeed I am taking the risks. The Sun ... well what can I say. Love this card and had just spent some time with the Sun. Have to be optimistic seeing the Sun appear.
The 8 of Wands also speaks to me of being excited and on my way to achieving my goal or goals. Realizing my hard work will pay off. Two days in a row I got the 8 of Swords. Swords is air ... thoughts, ideas etc. Today it shows itself as a Wand. Wands are fire .. taking action. Time to take some action.
The above adds up to 27 = 9 which is the Hermit. My renewed interest in meditation and discovering my inner self in order to help my outer self. And listen to my guide.
I like these cards today as they do give me hope and optimism for what is ahead of me tomorrow. I am not concerned my yearly evaluation meeting will go badly. I am good at my job and been there for 22 years. I need the courage to say some things I need to say. This won't affect my position in any way. It will affect my Self and my growth.
It has been a wonderful week off with an extra day today ...
