Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Eight of Cups

The Gilded Tarot by Ciro Marchetti

Don’t take the blessings that have come your way for granted. Take care of what you’ve received and help it to last as long as possible. If you don’t appreciate those blessings, you’ll waste their gifts and wish you hadn’t. It’s ok to treat yourself once in a while and enjoy life. But when you try to live a champagne life with a beer salary, you’ll throw away all you’ve worked for and be left with nothing. It’s a day to be cautious and frugal.

Additional Insight:

Don’t turn your back on the blessings you have already received. You asked for them, you worked hard for most of them and you should appreciate them when they arrive. When you ignore those things that have come your way after all that, you make it much harder to keep them safe and sound as you move forward to the next goal.

If you got it and realized you didn’t really want what you received than it’s time to sit back and pay attention to the lessons you face. Be careful what you ask for, you might get it. And when you realize it’s not what you needed, it can be very hard to get rid of it in a proper way that promotes growth instead of creates negative karma.

Time to slow down and start paying attention to what’s within. Be honest with yourself and make sure you’re looking at the real picture before you. Is what you’re striving for something you “want” or something you “need”? If you don’t need it, don’t waste your time on it. Because it probably won’t last or it will bring more heart ache than joy.  Take off the rose-colored glasses and see what’s before you with respect and honesty.
