I didn’t post my daily draws for the past three days, so I thought I’d do that now, just to try to keep up the practice of reporting what I pulled and how it related to my day!
Today is Monday (ugh).
On Saturday I pulled the Knight of Swords, using my Golden Tarot deck. Well, as much as I love to see other suits, it was fitting all the same. It was pretty much Jorge. He woke up on the wrong side of bed, and was irritable for most of the day, until late afternoon/early evening. Sometimes just the acknowledgement of what your day is bringing you is enough to make it easier to deal with, to keep in mind that it’s just a moment, and won’t last. To take it in stride. That’s one of the important benefits of daily draws, I would say. And while the day was pretty Knight of Swordsy, the evening ended on a positive note.

On Sunday I pulled The World, using my new Morgan Greer deck. That’s what I’m talking about! Not a sword in sight! ;-) (To be fair I do appreciate and value the messages the suit of Swords delivers, but sometimes I just want a break!). Realizing goals, getting active and involved, healing, synthesis, contentment and fulfillment. Quite an auspicious card, really! I wasn’t sure I’d be able to live up to it!!! But it did color my day in many ways. I made inquiries about two courses I want to take at a local shop – one on herbs and the other on intuitive Tarot. I purchased ritual candles and a small bottle for holding consecrated oil. I bought some Hawthorn berries for a tea I wanted to make (due to a haphazard reading about my health I’d done that morning which worried me and made me want to take some action!). And to top it off, that evening I did the most affirming reading (with my DruidCraft deck) about my future with Tarot which really brought everything together and gave me a strong feeling that I’m heading in the right direction. I followed that up with a one-card-draw from my Druid Animal Oracle to ask what animal teachings would be most helpful on my path, and pulled the Seal card (connecting to your Unconscious; Feminine energy and teachings; opening yourself to following your dreams). Not only was the message in line with my reading, but the card features a cloudy sky with a rainbow. A few minutes later I put the cards away and Jorge and Lourdes and I went out for an evening walk… when I looked up there was the most beautiful rainbow hanging in a hazy sky. I’ve never seen a rainbow by our house before, so it felt like another sort of confirmation, and it was a really beautiful moment for me, on many levels, kind of left me in awe. So The World seemed fitting for my day yesterday.

Today I almost didn’t even have time to pull a card. And let me say that it was quite the incomplete process. I was hurriedly shuffling my Morgan Greer deck (I’m trying to switch it up now that I have three decks, so each one gets a little attention) and wasn’t even able to finish one shuffle before Gabriel and Jorge came in the room, and I needed to change Gabriel’s diaper, and Jorge started organizing the bed sheets. So I just gave up shuffling, and cut the deck once and it was the Empress (how very fitting, given the surrounding activity!). I put that on the back burner and ran out the door. Despite the incompleteness of the shuffle/selection process I decided to go with it! On my way to work I thought about it, and feel it’s telling me that the most important aspects of my day today will involve my family. Jorge had a hard morning today with aches and pains he can’t identify the cause of, and feeling really tired. So I feel the need to be supportive of him, so that he can get some rest. Except I’m going to be at work for most of the day! So I’m going to help him as much as possible from afar (planning the grocery list, etc) and then later when I get home try to give him some down time, and see what activities I can come up with for the kids. To me today is all about giving extra support to my family in both roles: wife and mother.
