I decided to do another 3-card reading today, while I still have time. Who knows? I may get lucky and find a job, and then I'll probably have time to one card readings only. Might as well use my free time to learn something.
But I digress. My blessing for today is the Six of Stones... in the image, we see the Novice on his knees, praying for the Virgin so that he may find what he has lost, and also learn to see the real value of what he has. I think the meaning here is pretty mundane - it relates to the fact that today I'll go to the mall to buy my family some easter gifts. And the fact that yesterday I received the money I needed to do so - just in time. I have what I need, and now I can share this with others.
My challenge is the Six of Swords. In this card, the Knight (who was the Novice in the suits of Stones, but after completing that part of the journey he is knighted) finds an opportunity to escape from the man who has kept him captive. His luck is about to change. I believe that my challenge today is to see the opportunities I have to make things different. I've been doing it all the same everyday. I received an invitation to take an Art History class with a friend of my mother, and now I wonder... could this be my opportunity make it different?
My mission is the Restoration (Judgement), and in this card we see the Wounded King being healed, and his kingdom, restored. He may now die in piece, knowing that his land will no longer be a barren place. Again, this card speaks of change. But I think that the mission today, what I should try to accomplish, is to find ways to make my life less barren. This card sounds like a definite "yes" to my previous question. My mission is to search for more enriching experiences.
