What do the cards say today?
I drew three cards for Hestia, Hecate, and Hermes.
Here is a photo to help me see Who has given me what. Hestia gave me The Devil, The Start, and the Page of Pentacles. Hecate gave me the Seven of Pentacles, Eight of Pentacles, and Three of Wands. Hermes gave me Four of Swords, Ace of Swords, and King of Cups.
In this post, I’m going to write about one card from each God.
I’m going to start with Hestia and the card: The Devil first since, well, Hestia goes first and I got this card from Hecate a while ago (I didn’t do a post – I was babysitting). Anyway, the Devil card, which is always a delight to see, has given me some insight into my life at this point.
The Gods are telling me that I’m doing too much and that all the obligations that I setup are now holding me back.
I’m an intern at school now, but a professor and a past colleague asked me if I’m coming back to a previous job I took at school. I’m going to have to decline. Having an internship with a full-time school schedule is a lot. If I include another job, that’s too much for me especially if I want to get A’s this semester. I feel like Hecate and Hestia are telling me it’s OK to say no to things.
Seven of Pentacles
Hecate gave me the Seven of Pentacles and since Hermes gave me this card before, I think I should think about this card now before I think about the others.
There’s something I’m missing here. I got this card a few times before so I’m definitely missing something…I believe the Gods are telling me that I have to WRITE down things.
I’ve been so scattered lately that I haven’t thought to write everything down in my journal. I believe that They are telling me not to fear failure in any of my endeavors spiritual or otherwise. I keep worrying if I change one thing that They won’t like it. However, usually if I change something it’s for Them.
Four of Swords
To drudge on, I chose to talk about the Four of Swords that Hermes has given me. I feel like after I’ve recreated my shrine (again), I’ve read most of Kharis by Ms. Winter, and that I spend a lot of time and energy entertaining a five year old that I need much needed rest and relaxation. I’m not used to all this excitement!
I also feel like I need a rest before all the swords drop. Meaning: before school starts. Balancing my spirituality with school and work is going to be the real challenge for me.
