Oh for God’s sake with these first two! They’re not bad cards to get constantly but Jesus, lol. I wonder what’d happen with a different deck, but the 3 that Charlie ordered haven’t shipped for some reason. One’s a pre-order but B&N hasn’t sent the other two. The King of Wands is probably telling me I need to get back to work. I haven’t worked on the current illustration project in awhile. I haven’t heard back on the last two composition updates but I have four more waiting. Maybe I don’t want it to be over!
I’m not going to work today either. Yesterday was about getting out of the house. We came back after lunch but then went out again later, to the Laurelwood brew pub in Milwaukie. Now I’m all hungover but C’s not, oddly. Maybe I should’ve joined him for his walk up to the park at the top of Council Crest, but I have to get my lazy, bleary ass to do a workout… Bleah. Urrrgh. I can’t stall until the middle of the day either because we’re joining the kids this afternoon for a Father’s Day hangout down at the blues festival thing, on the waterfront.
Maybe I should give the daily readings a rest & start doing them just once a week? Unless there’s a really bad one that is.
It’s actually gonna be nice enough out to tan again but I won’t get the chance – wah, wah!

Card 3, advice: Page of Disks

Introduction: The Page of Pentacles can be a card about boredom, in some ways. This Page’s strength is unconditional love both for self and others, and non judgment. Assuming strength in your self, others and in situations. Project into the world calm thoughts that support rather than hinder what you want from life.
The Page of Pentacles, like the pages of all the suits, is a card of new beginnings, of inspiration and the initial stages of a creative project or venture. Pentacles correspond to the alchemical element of earth, and in this sense the coin that the Page holds may symbolize the beginnings of sensual awareness not only in terms of money and its value but also in terms of a growing awareness of the importance of health and other material needs.
