All the signs today point to things being frantic and a mess in the work world. Travel may come up at the last minute, and trying to process everything that’s going through your mind may make it difficult to make clear, thoughtful choices and decisions. There might also be some sneaky people saying less than helpful things, so be careful what you take in today. It’s time to wake up and actively choose what’s coming through your boundaries. Pay attention to your thoughts because they are making the world as you’re thinking it. What are you afraid to face? What are you protecting yourself from? It’s time to face those things so that you can move on. Being stuck is another source of anxiety and worry, so that could be making things worse as well. Time to get unstuck.
They say misery loves company, and today it’s especially true. If you’re down or having a run of bad luck, talk about it. It’s ok. It happens to all of us. Share both the positive and the negative, and let people see the real you rather than the shiny Facebook version of you. Take a day (or part of a day) and wallow a bit if you need to. Let yourself whine. You need to get it out of your system. What you should be keeping to yourself, though, is your magic, your secrets, how you do what you do. Just because people ask, “Oh my god, how do you do that?” doesn’t mean you have to tell them. Keep your beliefs to yourself too. Today is not the day to start proselytizing about anything. Leave the missionary crap to others who think they won’t get into heaven without it. That’s not your circus. Focus on being a good person in the here and now, and work your magic in secret.
Despite today’s cards sounding like the next great New Wave band (Echo and the Dragon? Come on, you guys! They’d be awesome! 🙂 ), the message is about going in search of your dreams and your joy, and letting things pass when their time is over. Both Jera and Saille (the rune and stave, respectively) speak of cycles and the turning of the tides, moving from one state into the next and letting it all flow. Be yourselves. You don’t need to hide who you are or where you’re going, and you don’t need to parrot back to others what you think they want to hear. Let all that go. Face forward, take a deep breath, and step out into your next great adventure!
Today’s draw is about inner authority and doing what you need to do to ensure your own health and prosperity. Are you getting enough sleep? Enough exercise? Because here’s the thing: you’ve got one body. One heart, two lungs, two legs, two arms, two hands, etc., etc. These things are not easily replaceable, and if you do need to have one or another piece replaced it will take more money and energy than you really want to spend right now unless you have to. Take care of yourself. Can you walk up and down the steps where you live? Or walk around the office floor a few times? Get the blood moving, and practice deep breathing while you do it. If you’re traveling, reach out for home in your heart. Bring home with you (which is pretty much what we all do anyway; you’re just being asked to be conscious about it). Where are your boundaries? Are people pushing you to do too much? Are you letting them? Where is your focus? There’s so much that needs your attention, so take one little baby step today toward it. That’s all. Just one small step. No major leaps–you’re not ready for major leaps right now. Find that one little thing you can do, and do it.
Today’s draw is about travel and moving past boundaries because you have to. Do whatever you need to do to get from point A to point B today, including pushing past your own boundaries and letting the worthy come through to help you. Do your work, wherever it leads. Help others where you can, because you might be the only one who can. And if you need to have a Bloody Mary (or whatever works for you) to get you there, go for it and don’t give yourself shit over it. Just keep moving because you don’t know what’s riding on your actions today.
