10/1/15 Daily Tarot Practice: One Card Spread

Today is a BIG day for me at my job. We are going to the all new coding system starting today, October 1st. It is up to me and four other people to get all the coding work done for all our offices. No one knows how it will work. It is kind of like having to translate what we have been doing every day into an entirely different language. On top of it all, the powers that be, have decided to keep a full patient load because they don't want to cause static with the doctors. All of this has been really scary for me. I have tried in the last few days not to let it worry me because truly there is nothing I can do, other than my best. But as the time to go into work gets closer and closer, I get more and more apprehensive… wondering if I will be able to keep up… wondering if I will translate the codes correctly… wondering if our claims will go through so the money will come in and everyone will get paid…

I decided to pull one card today, and holy crap, guess what I pulled?

The Card: Justice reversed.

 

First Impressions: Holy guacamole, Batman! I got it again! What the heck does it mean? Am I in trouble? It's a Major Arcana card and its reverse, so no doubt it is important and an issue I have been dealing with for quite a while. On top of which I got this card earlier this week regarding work. Does that mean I will get what I deserve? If so, did I not study enough? Will I crash and burn? This card has made me really apprehensive.

So a did a bit of reading. Normally, when doing my daily practice, I don't look up card meanings (since part of getting to know the decks is just looking to see what I see.) And I feel a bit better. This card is a positive card. It is about balance and fair distribution. Staying calm and making well thought out decisions. So, it seems to me, that Justice is telling me to calm down. I am weighed down my my apprehension and fear. I have to feel it and let it pass. My focus for today needs to be at keeping balanced and calm. Funny, the Anna K. guide mentioned the “fair distribution” and that will be something all of us will need to be aware of today since we don't want anyone to feel completely overwhelmed by the amount of work there is to do. Yes… this is an issue I have been struggling with more and more as today has come closer and closer. I need to be strong like Justice, wise and fair. And do my best. The cards will fall as they may (ha!).

Here's hoping you have a great first day of October!

9/29/15 Daily Tarot Practice: Three Card Spread

I wanted something different today. I am unsure why. So I pulled out my “mixed” deck to see what would come up.

The cards: Justice, Knight of Swords, and Queen of Swords.

 

First Impressions: One Major Arcana card speaking of a long persisting issue. A “Big” issue. Two Sword cards dealing with daily issues. What struck me the most was that they all are holding swords pointing upwards. Important thoughts?

Justice. Whoa. So why is Justice coming up? My first thought was work. There have been lots of things going on that just haven’t seemed fair or good. Could it mean that? Or could it mean that I need to put a blindfold on, experience what is going on in my life (and work) and take it for what it is… not see it through the lens (perspective) I have been viewing it… and give it a “fair” shake? The Knight of Swords is facing justice. He is active, ready to leap forward towards Justice. Is he fighting justice? Am I the Knight… am I fighting Justice? I am unsure right now what the Knight’s quest and purpose is. I wonder if he even knows… or if he is riding off half cocked. Is that me? Am I riding off half cocked? Or is it a good and true fight he is riding into? If so, how does Justice fit in? Maybe I need to ride in and deal with my issues of Justice. Hmmmm. Then there is the Queen of Swords. She is calmly looking out at me. Holding her sword. She is prepared to use it but does so only after much consideration. This queen is my favorite, I love the snow scene behind her and she has such a strong, calm presence. I would like to be her. I would like to put what is going on in my life into perspective and be strong, calm but ready to act if the need arises.

It will be interesting to see how the day progresses. Happy Tuesday ya’ll!
