So I've been reading tarot for about five years,and for much of that time I've been a weirdo who *didn't* do daily card draws. It's just such a commonly talked about thing, it feels like it's taken for granted that if you read tarot, you *at least* pull a card of the day. .
Here's why that doesn't work for me: Part of what I love about tarot is how it works with human psychology. The human mind doesn't like for things to not line up evenly, so we experience "apophenia" where our minds draw connections from randomness. The capability of the human mind to create narrative from unrelated stimuli is fascinating and amazing! But: if I have one out of context card and an entire day, I get three possible outcomes: (1) The Good Outcome - it becomes clear very soon what that card was about for my day, narrative neatly wrapped up.
(2) Alternative Outcome (The Not Good) - The card can relate to many things (especially broadly negative cards) or nothing clearly, so I spend too much of my day worrying about "Was it this?" or "Could this be the interpretation?" This is bad for me because instead of using my energy for actualization or manifestation, I become passive and anxious (especially when I'm in a negative or stressful season with work!) This ends up compounding negative factors for me that are not negative factors for everyone. (3) The Other Alternative Outcome (the Ineffectual One) - I don't think about my draw throughout the day. I don't consider it for warning, manifestation, guidance, blessing. I take no time to reflect on it or experience mentoring, or to be grateful. I want to say that the convenience of using an app contributes to this, but really if I take the time with a full deck, I'm just as likely to pass up meditation on the card for the day.
Doing daily tarot draws on this instagram was in part to drive traffic because I do want people contacting me about readings and seeing me post daily about the cards is the metric-driven best way to do that, but with my stress and mental health it's not doing for me what it should, so I'm changing my habits. #tarot

Last time this showed up, I took time to be kind to myself and learned that one of my students lost her mother.
So, cool cool cool, super enjoying all of these weighty card of the day draws.
Yesterday I had a couple serious conversations about how my anxious brain wants to overcorrect for small stimuli. For the Ten of Swords here, you have a lot of negative stimuli - and the choice is new beginnings (whether that new beginning is in the same area, like semester change, or seeing a bigger change). I'm not happy about another indication of a day like this, but all I can do is make the most of it.

It's been a bit since I've gotten a Major Arcana for my card of the day. And my mind has been going in different directions a lot recently (mostly about job security vs. job satisfaction). And what I need is Temperance: not going off into one thing, not ignoring things, but balance.

The energy of this King is being forceful and determined with ideas, and difficulty with change. And the Five of Swords is what I've come to recognize as my constant companion with dissatisfaction and frustration with my work.
Teaching is in a bad state with so many of us thinking of our exit strategies, and it doesn't help that planners for the new year ask questions like "What are your dreams? What do you need to accomplish to make that happen?" and my answers keep having to do with disconnecting myself from the forceful energy I now associate with teaching.
So basically Imma need these Swords days to STOP BUMMING ME OUT because denial helps me keep going in teaching.

Today, I did productive things. I did things to support my husband who has been passed over for a promotion. I took care of chores and things to make me happy.
I did these things because even if I'm doing better piece by piece, it's still difficult not to feel defeated, especially with regard to public education.

The Nine of Swords has a lot to do with psychic distress and need for mental healing.
That's where I am right now. All I desire is time to rest and a reduction of work-related stress, but if I take time off the stress only piles up once I return.
I am taking steps to make things better. I've got a bunch of crystals, and the best medicine is medicine, and I have that. But they're not cutting it, so I'm going to start seeing a therapist.

Card of thr day (for my birthday!): The Queen of Swords.
Often the Court cards are hard for me, but not the Queen of Swords. With her I can just picture every woman that I aspire to be - often women I met in university or school settings because of my career. Women who cut through things decisively with their intelligence and uncompromising determination, women who held power and went after things either because they deserved the rewards or they were working on behalf of others.
I joke (but not really joke) about these people "She's who I want to be when I grow up." I guess with this card on my birthday, it's about time to be who I want to be when I grow up.
