- Maybe I’m obsessed with the Amber Heard / Johnny Depp mess because it’s a reminder that things are not always what they’re cracked up to be. Just got up for coffee time downstairs in the kitchen, and this is the first thing I read about, since I’m not clicking on Facebook at the moment.
- Somehow I tweaked my lower right back while doing that freaking low impact routine yesterday. I really felt it when I was trying to walk Henry, with the rest of the gang, around 8pm. Took two advil before bed. Whatever I do today, the suryas & fundamentals have to precede it. It does feel a lot better than it did in the evening thankfully. I like to work out around the hottest part of the day, when it’s best to be downstairs anyway.
- I’ve been drawing & painting for a couple hours already, but just put away those supplies. Time to take off the board, scan, post & update all over the place.
Card 1, within: Knight of Disks
Same card & placement as May 27, five days ago.
On a quest for what is physical.
Do not dwell on the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment. – Buddha
Keywords: Don’t look outside for the answer to the problem, look inside to find peace. You already have everything you are looking for. Look in your own home. Do not have doubt in yourself, you are made for this and already have all the tools. Take the middle path, use just what you need, no more or less.
Introduction: The Knight of Pentacles points to messages, often with regard to money and finance. You are likely to finally receive news that you’ve been waiting on, and this news is likely to be good. This Knight is a very practical card. The news in question is unlikely to be that you’ve won the lottery.
General: The Knight tells us to pay attention to the mundane and normal parts of our lives. A wise man once said, “Take care of the little things, and the big things will all fall into place.” The Knight of Pentacles asks you to look at how you are handling your affairs, and is a grounding influence.
Work: Now is not the time to suggest an overthrow of the traditional ways of doing things. You must work within existing systems and accomplish what people expect you to accomplish. If you are looking for work this can be a good omen that the position you need is forthcoming, but warns that in interviews, etc., that you will need to come across as dependable and even-keeled, as they are unlikely to be looking for mavericks now.
Card 2, without: Page of Swords
The Page of Swords is a messenger bringing you challenges. He suggests that an opportunity for growth may come your way in the guise of a problem or dilemma. These challenges may not be your favorites. In fact, you probably will want to say “Thanks…but no thanks.”
The Page of Swords asks you to embrace these difficult situations. Think of them as trials designed to test your mettle. If you accept and prevail, you will become stronger and more resilient. In meeting these challenges, you are encouraged to use the tools of the Swords suit – honest, reason, integrity and fortitude.
The Page of Swords can also stand for a child or young-at-heart adult whose interactions with you involve truthfulness, ethical behavior, discouragement or matters of the mind. This relationship is likely to be troubled or difficult in keeping with the challenges of the Swords suit.
Sometimes the Page of Swords implies that your entire situation is one suffused with the spirit of learning, discovery, and mental activities of all kinds. At such times, use your mind and enjoy the delights of the intellect.
Keywords: Good luck, prosperity, potent and auspicious power. Brainstorming, inventing, imagination, an open mind.
Card 3, advice: 7 of Wands
Last seen May 20th, as card 2.
Introduction: When the 7 of Wands appears, you are likely to find that in any sort of competitive situation, that you come out on top. Things should be going very well, you should be feeling good, and projects should be moving right along. You may still have regular moments of self-doubt, unfortunately, but now is time to feel the fear, and do it anyway.
General: Don’t hesitate to make where you stand clear to people. Your thinking is clear, and you are likely to help someone out by spelling things out for them. This card can indicate that a change is coming – a positive change – in your personal or business life. This card also points toward being independent and thinking for yourself.
Work: If you’ve ever wanted to be self-employed, now is the time to give this a great deal of thought and to do your homework. You have the wherewithal to make your own business work, IF you are willing to put in the time and effort it will take to make it happen. Be logical, however. If you can start your business while still employed elsewhere, it makes sense to do so.
