Happy Canada Day holiday weekend!! Lucky me, I've been off work since last Thursday and will be all of next week. Some much needed time off. Thursday and Friday were dull, dreary, rainy days perfect for inside chores. Today the Sun is trying to shine but the clouds are putting up a good fight. At least it is a tiny bit cooler.
Have a list of priorities for this time off. Top of the list is to get myself organized here in my little office space. Who knew this would be such a big job. Not me. I have a day outing planned for mid week and hopefully the weather cooperates since it involves walking and walking and more walking.
I love not waking up to an alarm, not rushing to get myself ready for "work". How nice having my own agenda, doing what I enjoy but rarely have time for. Did I say I love not going to work. Oh yeah, I did. There is time for exercise, for planning meals, playing with my cards and whatever I feel like. Went over to the library and got myself four books to read. Excited about that since it has been forever since I actually sat down and read a book for fun. (aside from a tarot or astrology book).
Cards pulled a bit earlier from The Nigel Jackson Tarot:
These cups are really trying to tell me something. The last draw with the Page of Cups and the Ace of Cups gave me the impression I needed to deal with my inner self. And also I wondered if I was to pursue the getting to know a certain someone I'd met on-line. I did receive another "message" from this person. However, I haven't written back ... yet. Should I or shouldn't I? That is the question. Why or why not is another.
So now here is the King of Cups and the Ten of Cups. Okay ... the King is grounded to be sure, however, he isn't looking at me and I get the feeling he doesn't want to be in the reading. Or perhaps he just isn't concerned about anything and is quite content. Interestingly, at eye level here at my desk, there is a picture of a happy me with the words under it "happy, healthy and content". Always in the present when said. I say them often and always before a meditation and before shuffling my cards. The Ten, especially to me, is saying to be in the moment. Feel the moment. Don't get overwhelmed with everything.
So then I thought I'd draw another card for clarification:
Hmm ... Life is what it is ... up and downs. It is all about how we deal with the ups and downs. Outwardly, strength is what others see, inwardly not so much these days. Bit of a struggle.
All these cups. The Universe wants me to deal with my emotional stuff. Lately, forcing me too. In my astrology natal chart the only water I have is my Scorpio Ascendant and it is definitely challenged.
