I’m not surprised with this reading. I went to bed at 9pm last night & caught up on some needed rest, but I’m feeling restless and a little bored this morning, nothing major but it’s there. I’ll get some work done. Yesterday I’d intended to ink both Kali and Athena and stop there, but instead I got going on the watercolor washes with Kali and didn’t get to my other goddess at all.
My legs are sore, but at least I’m not all peg-legged like I was one day last summer (the day I met Charlie I could hardly walk), when I’d had my first serious introduction to pistol squats. Figures on a day I need some yoga it’s kind of cold, only 55 now. That’s great for sleeping but bad for yoga! It’s only going up to 61 too. I can’t take a rest day either cause of all the retail coming up… I haven’t lost any of that belly roll at all.
Speaking of which, if I’m going to be suffering through the standing and pacing so much I might actually spring for a real haircut for the first time since early April, 2015. I’ll go to Bishops, which is a barbershop type place that friend Susan told me about. I could also use a 3rd work shirt for summer. Of the two banker-blue, striped styles I have one is just a little bit too fitted and substantial a fabric for hot days in a no AC environment.
Card 1, within: 5 of Disks
Introduction: The 5 of Pentacles can point to a time when life is feeling less than secure. The important thing to remember is that there is always help available when we need it, from forces both seen and unseen. You may feel alone. Yup. Even if a relationship is going well, if that is the ONLY person you interact with on a regular basis… Perhaps I should finally call a friend or something.
General: In general, the 5 of Pentacles points to a feeling of being left out in the cold, as though everyone else in the world has everything and you are the only one that is suffering.
Work: Work can be either burdensome or non-existent when this card appears, and you may be feeling stuck. Know that you do not have to stay in a situation that is not healthy or workable for you, have faith in yourself and the universe that changes are possible. That’s what I was going with when I left NYC.
Heaven is in the breast (heart chakra). Eternity is now. Look for the answer within. Find peace within. Not like I have other options anyway.
The Five of Pentacles is a Tarot Card that appears when economic times get bad. It shows up when we are losing faith in a relationship, an institution or just in ourselves. It is a card that illustrates us lacking faith in tough times.
Card 2, without: Page of Disks
Last seen in the same 2nd, “environment” position on May 31. Pentacles are the Tarot deck’s symbol of wealth, but they also represent the material plane of existence – all possessions and the practical approach to having things around.
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.
Card 3, advice: 2 of Cups
Last seen on June 2nd in the 1st position.
Introduction: The 2 of Cups often refers to romantic partnership, but that is not its only connotation. It can speak of balance, friendship, joy, and sharing.
General: In general this is a card that says that things are likely to be going well. You should be feeling more than usually loved, cared for, and content.
Love: This card represents true love, balanced partnership, commitment, and all of the things that most of us hope for in regard to love and relationship. However, this does not mean that you can just do or say “whatever” and that your love/relationship will last; it only means that the underpinnings, the real, solid, potential for true love and affection is there.
When this card appears in the future position, a good outcome is almost guaranteed. The Two of Cups is a card that allows you to peer into where the subtlest energies between you and another person are going. This card’s appearance in the future position signals that those energies are about to become amplified into full-fledged infatuation, partnership or a deep commitment between you and this other person.
