Week in Review

Carla at Rowan Tarot inspired me to try a week in review spread today, and the cards were spot on!

Seven of Swords, The Lovers, Queen of Pentacles - The Gilded Tarot

The week started out with me feeling extremely uncomfortable.  Some weirdness that is swirling around with my larger circle of friends was causing a very close friend of mine to behave in a way that was confusing and hurt me.  I was afraid to have a conversation about it and was trying hard to just ignore the situation or maybe even walk away from the friendship if things didn't change.  My inner wisdom was screaming that this was not the way to approach the situation, but fear was telling me to say nothing and distance myself instead.

I did eventually listen to wisdom and love instead of fear and started a conversation simply by saying, "What's going on?"  This is when I learned about some of the drama that has been happening, of which I was only vaguely aware.  I was also able to explain my own part in it or what looked like my part, (misunderstandings, ugh!) which I think eased some of my friend's hurt feelings.  So, the two of us are in good shape even if our larger circle of mutual friends is still broken.  I do wish I could fix that because I think many, many misunderstandings, old and new, are causing the rift, but that is something that is not mine to fix.

The week ends with me reflecting on how I am taking better care of myself lately, which would include facing an uncomfortable relationship problem that was causing me much stress, eating more healthfully, and playing hostess to some wonderful friends for a Rock Band party at the beginning of the week.  I'm suddenly noticing a crack in the darkness letting some light shine in, and that is a very nice feeling.

I just wanted to mention, for anyone who hasn't noticed, that I started a new blog called, "Project Me," where I'm writing about the work I'm doing to live the life I truly desire and become the person I am meant to be. The link is in the header. That is all. :-)

Four of Wands Affirmation

I am thankful for my success and proud of my role in achieving it.
Four of Wands  - Joie De Vivre Tarot

When I think of my success I'm thinking especially of my family.  We are a close family with so much love, and my children are really great people.  I'm so proud of them.  My husband and I have built something together that is really special.

It's interesting that so far each of the cards I've pulled for affirmations have been wands.  It's so appropriate for someone who is trying to learn to love herself and change her life.  It requires a real fire-in-the-belly sort of ambition, which the wands represent.

Project: Me!

The time has come for me to start taking control of my life again and make some changes. I'm starting small. This week I'm committed to doing a 7-day green juice challenge that I saw over at Food Matters.  I won't be changing my eating habits at this time, apart from adding one green juice a day to my diet.  I hope to make that a new lifetime habit, but for now I'm going to see how I feel after seven days.  My husband bought me a new juicer which arrived the other day, and he picked up some veggies on his way home from work yesterday.  He's already put more work into this project than I have. Ha! 

This juice is cabbage, lettuce, spinach, one Granny Smith apple, half a small lemon, and a bit of ginger.  I could easily drink a tall glass of this every morning.  (The cleanup is another thing, but I'm committed, I tell ya!)

And since this is a tarot journal, I figured I'd draw a card everyday as a sort of affirmation.  My Joie De Vivre deck is the one I love to use when I'm looking for encouragement or a little bit of kind self-talk.
