day 28

What have I gained during this challenge?
Seven of Pentacles – make a choice, reward for effort and work, different approaches.

I have gained the knowledge of working hard for what I know, for my choices. There are different ways to go about getting knowledge but ultimately it’s up to what you choose to be true.

How can I use this in my everyday life?
Two of Pentacles – flexible, adaptable

Know when the time is right for actions and information to be shared. Learn how much I should give and when.

How have I grown as a reader?
Three of Pentacles – teamwork, functioning together as a unit

OH MY GOD! Do you see the lady in the card? This is the lady I have met when I meditate to visit Hawk and Artemis. (except the Lady I met had longer hair) I take this as a sign that my Shadowscapes Tarot deck and I have bonded so much during this month. I love every aspect of it, from the color schemes, to the drawings themselves, to the fact that they exist at all. Oh man! I love this deck!

Spread-A-Day: Day 20

Deck: Shadowscapes Tarot
Created by: manandcards

Start: What To Change
Six of Swords – passage away from difficulties, a chance to recover, despondency

I need to stop daydreaming about getting away from the major conflict that has infected my brain.  I’m just so done with everything right now and it’s only six days until the actual meeting.  I want to throw in the towel right now, but the cards are telling me not to.

Hope: What Lifts You
Queen of Cups – creative, imagination, heeds her intuition, artistic expression

What I’ve always liked about myself was my creativity and the ways things just naturally seem to come together when it came to my imagination.

Skip: What To Leave
Three of Pentacles – teamwork, functioning together as a unit

Well, I guess I can say good-bye to a well-oiled family meeting.  As much as my sisters want to think that they will be here to listen to what I have to say, they already have a barrier that will not let them.

Jump: What Boosts You
XIX – The Sun – understanding, renewal of life, clarity of vision and purpose

I love adventure. Doesn’t matter what kind.  Oh, we got lost on the way to a friends house? “Adventure time! C’mon grab your friends!…”  Planning a road trip?  “…as we all travel to distant lands!”  That planning ahead for something interesting is what makes me smile.

Ground: Where You Land
I – The Magician – creativity, self-confidence, “grasping the unseen… and harnessing it to become reality”

My imagination, my intuition, my magic.  They lead me to who I am.

Day 16

What am I thinking and dreaming about?
Six of Cups – reunion, nostalgia

I am thinking and dreaming about thinking and dreaming. =D I’m remembering how it used to be in the family.  We worked really well together and then once my dad left, everything fell apart.  I’m also worried about when I meet my sisters for the family meeting, a good portion of it will be about remembering the good ol’ days.  And I don’t want that.  I want to move forward.

Any warnings from my intuition?
Knight of Swords – hasty, action-oriented, opinionated

My intuition is telling me don’t be overreact, think things through.  Again, my words have more weight to them than I know.  I need to keep calm and rational.

Where will I land if I continue in the direction of my thoughts?
Three of Pentacles – initial fulfillment, collaboration, learning

I feel something good will come of being nostalgic for a bit… maybe remembering the past will help to break the ice in the beginning?  We’ll see how each of us defines what has happened.  But I feel that wall behind the feline artist is important.  We’ll see how each of us understands things, but ultimately, we’ll be separated by our own truths.

Day 11

Aim for this. (This is where you must go.)
Knight of Pentacles – efficiency, methodical, routine

My hours at work changed (at my request) and it’s thrown me for a very subtle loop in regards to sleep schedule; my work schedule in conjunction with my mom’s; and the little nuances that people would normally dismiss but are actually a way for me to go about my routine, have all changed in a very slight way. This has thrown me off course a bit.

Your current projections. (This is where you currently aim.)
Three of Pentacles – teamwork, “functioning together as a unit”

What I’m looking to try and do is to make it all work as close as possible to my old schedule.  I’m trying to do the exact same things but at a different time schedule… sometimes it works, other times I’m up way pay I need to be.

How to propel you towards your true aim. (Use this to propel you towards your aim.)
Ten of Pentacles – wealth, establishment, “long term efforts finally brought to fruition”

Getting back into a rhythm that works with my sleep schedule and work schedule is going to take time, but with some effort and knowing that this won’t work in the first week, I can make it work a few months down the line.

It’s the little things that make me happy, like a well laid out routine.

Spread-A-Day: Day 1

Day 1

Date: February 1, 2015
Shadowscapes Tarot

Who am I, going into this challenge?
XX Judgement – inner calling, rebirth

Through meditation and meeting Hawk, I have become a more calm person. In delving deeper into what paganism and my own beliefs mean to me, I have learned that I love reading tarot, I love hearing about other people’s ways of doing things and yet we all come to similar conclusions.

I love the fact that my own not-quite-the-best experiences in regards to a higher power haven’t closed me off from finding the Pond of the Universe or from finding Artemis and Isis. And I love the fact that I can feel myself changing into a better me.

Who am I, going into this challenge? I am someone who is finally learning to listen.

In doing this challenge, what do I hope to achieve?
Three of Pentacles – teamwork, fulfillment, learning

I hope to achieve a better understanding of the interconnectedness of people, especially between those who made the spread-a-day spreads and those who will be using the spreads. The energy of people truly working together to understand themselves and their place in the world will be huge and positive… and I see it as this glittering dust floating above everything. It’s so positive and wonderful. If we release that energy when the challenge is done, the universe will do great things because of what we did.

What will I learn about myself in the process?
Ten of Wands – work, responsibility, achievement

This card can be about burdens and stress from over-achieving, but in my case, I feel that I will learn about the achievements I can do with my work. My job is a very physical position and my department is “low man on the totem pole.” We don’t get much praise because we aren’t the ones who are getting the spotlight. We are the ones who work behind the scenes to make sure those who are front and center get their work done more smoothly.

I feel that, though I already love with I do, I will find achievement in my job through a new light or in a different way. I am happy to do what I need to do, but now I need to understand why I do it.
