Yesterday I went to the Adelaide Vegan Festival. It was an absolutely lovely day, full of friends, fun and Vegan scrumptiousness :). It was the first day I’ve spent out in the Spring sun since Spring began, and being as light skinned as I am I was scrambling for shade anywhere I could find it. I got to enjoy so many Vegan delicacies, and ran into a few people I haven’t seen for quite some time which was a blessing. I even got my hair wrapped, which I’ve wanted to do for so long and got the most beautiful complement from a stranger, who said my eyes were mesmerising and reminded her of her most treasured childhood marble :). All in all it was a lovely day!
Today when I woke up however I was feeling a little drained, originally I thought it was from all the sun but I think it may have also had something to do with running into a few people whom affect my emotions in a negative way. This realisation didn’t come to my mind until later today, and I believe it has something to do with the card I drew this morning :). Today’s Daily Draw was my new Tarot Stalker, The Hermit.
During October I drew The Hermit twice, one of which I wrote about here, and earlier this week in my Courtroom Drama reading I not only drew him, but he also came up through numerology as the most important card in the spread. So when I drew him today, I decided that I needed to take some time to sit and think. And what came from this quiet time you ask? Well a whole lot of tears actually! I thought that I was getting stronger, coming to realise who I am and what I want from my life, but having this small thing yesterday cause pain today makes me wonder what else I am meant to learn from this situation? And what is it that The Hermit is coming to me for?
So I spent some time today simply sitting with my thoughts, and after a little more introspection, I think that The Hermit is coming to me as a kick in my backside from the Tarot, telling me that if I truly want to learn more about myself, and go on this journey of understanding, I really do need to let the distractions of the world have less of an affect on me! When things happen in the world that I have no control over, I must just let them be, and move on. I am who I am, in this moment in time, and my past is my past, I need to start living in the present so that I can create a future I wish to live in. A future where I am stronger, and have a deeper understanding of myself and what makes me tick! I hope that through this introspection I will come to realise what it truly is that causes me pain, and what will actually make me happy now. For yesterday really was a lovely day, and I shouldn’t let such small things get to me! I need to look at the positives that occurred, and that will occur in the future, rather than the things that bring me into a space of negative energy! And soon Mr Hermit, soon I will go on the journey you are suggesting, I just need to get my things in order, and I’ll be off 🙂
So, until next time, live well xx
