Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Eight of Wands – Inverted

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti - Eight of Wands - Inverted

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti

You can coast along and hope you have enough momentum to get where you need to be. Or you can light the rockets and soar above the clouds to your destination. Take control and lead the way with energy to spare. You are the one who must do this, because no one else is going to do it for you.

Additional Insight:

Don’t dredge along hoping you’ve done enough to get to the end. You’ll short change yourself and wind up a dollar short and a day late. Now is not the time to procrastinate. You don’t even have to anticipate what you need, because you already know. You have a list, you have a stack of letters and they both need to get done in order to resolve the current state of affairs.

Stop letting your worry make you weary and get over it already. The longer you wait, the harder the struggle will be. Bite the bullet and face the music. It’s not that bad of a mistake anyway. Stop beating yourself up and simply address the problem. No need to make the mole hill into a giant mountain.

You have the ability to shine amongst all the others around you. You can stand out as the “can do”, “go to”, reliable person that gets things done through innovative solutions. Here’s a task that isn’t even that tough to deal with and you’ve allowed it to freeze you in place.

This is not the straw that broke the camels back. It’s not even a set back. It’s nothing more than life making its way and fighting through crowd to get ahead of the game. Don’t allow yourself to be stuck behind the pack with no way to maneuver. You’ll be blinded by their fear and pulled down by their pessimism.

Surround yourself with positive thinkers, proactive problem solvers, people with energy and excitement. These are the folks that will inspire you to leap over the little fires that pop up through your journey. Which will be a much easier path than those who are trying to brave the flames and walk through them.

Stop telling yourself you don’t have time or there’s too much to do to get done on time. That negative self talk does nothing but keep you from doing what needs to be done. You have more than enough time. You won’t take away from the other things that are equally important or imperative. Stop worrying about everything on your plate and focus on the items that have deadlines for the end of the week. And if you have to set something aside to do something for someone close to you. Remember that without them, there’s no reason for you to be working so hard in the first place. Take care of them first. The other things really can wait and you can make up time on those over the weekend.

You still have till Friday to get things done and in the mail. Whither it be snail mail, email, fax or some other method of submission. Get it done by close of business before the weekend and this little mole hill won’t even be a hill at all. It will simply be bump in the road that made the journey interesting. You can do this. Now get to it. Pen to paper, fingers to keyboard. Whatever it takes, do it!

  1. To who all who take a part in all this Springwolf content – the archive of knowledge and links, the reflections and meditations, I Thank you. Words are inadequate to express my appreciation and wonder.

    I wonder how it can be that you are talking straight to me, it’s as if you know me and how I got to here and you’re watching over me and giving me the support and words I need each time you post a meditation drawing or I’m drawn to another bit of information through your website – I wonder if you sense me here on Brinja country – the far South Coast of New South Wales, Australia.

    I feel a little bit connected to others in the Universe who know, as I do, I’m not crazy for believing in the Divine. (so I feel a little less crazy J) A similar link has occurred here so I feel like I’m emerging from my chrysalis and being greeted by all that is good in the Universe.

    I hope I get to visit one day. If you ever come to Australia, please come stay at my place! I’d be happy to arrange for you to meet some the Original Custodian elders and other Aboriginal people around my region and see some of the sacred places and hear the stories of the land here.

    Thanks again, this time in anticipation of the learnings to come J

    Now I gotta go and write these bloody letters that need to get sent!

    Kind Regards and Respect,

    Go Well
