Day 7 of #78DaysofSlowHoller

Day 7 of #78DaysofSlowHoller

Today was day 7 of the #78daysofslowholler study I’m doing. I’m loving this deck more and more with each pull I do. This deck has been giving me some fantastic readings with some spreads I use. I really would like to post these cards one by one but life happens and I get busy.

Here is a group of the last four I have pulled:

2 of Branches

Allow yourself to not only see the new changes and growth happening, but to feel them too. Feel the changes from the inside growing and yearning to branch out. This is just another step for you to climb. If things get uncomfortable, change your position but never stop the growth from continuing, trust in the process.

Traveler of Branches

Normally I view this card as power house that is ready to go full force without delay (or thinking). I pulled this card on Friday and was really drawn to the “warning” this card brings instead. There was no need for us to go full force, so take this card as a heads up and pace yourself. It can be way too easy to get heavily involved, sometimes when we drop our blinders we can get burned or make mistakes.

9 of Vessels

We are sometimes always so caught up on the things we don’t have or things that are out of reach. Doing this can make is feel miserable regardless if we have everything we need. Turning your focus onto the small things or what you already have can bring us joy that we didn’t realize was there. This could be enjoying a day out with friends, finding a book on your wishlist at the library, or just allowing yourself to be happy! You are deserving of everything you have worked hard for and have in your life, enjoy them!

The Precipice

When I pulled this card this morning I couldn’t see how it would be relevant to my day… it’s Monday, I have nothing hanging out in limbo, I’m feeling good, etc. Then it dawned on me, I’ve actually been this card all morning while I focused on creating new goals for myself and my blog. Sometimes when we start a new focus on our life we are left to reevaluate what we are doing, what we want, and what we wish to focus on. This can also be seen in the form of goal planning and tweaking our goals as we go and grow. What are you doing today that encompasses this card?

On Tuesday I decided to start a “78 Days of Slow Holler” where I go through the whole deck in 78 days (no card repeats). I was inspired by @annalionhearted on Instagram. I started something similar a long while back with the Cosmos Tarot & Oracle deck, but never finished… I didn’t even come close to finishing lol! I do plan to return to that project down the road when I am inspired to pick up that deck again though.

Today was day 3 of #78DaysofSlowHoller and I have to say, I really enjoy getting to know this deck like this. I’m not drawing a card with the thought that this is my “card of the day” but more like “my study of the day”.

Tuesdays card was the 8 of Branches (8 of Wands) and when I originally looked at this card, I didn’t see the connect to it like I did with other decks, I felt I was missing the idea of this card… but then after a little study and picking it apart, I realized this card is a fantastic representation of the 8 of Wands. It’s all about rolling up your sleeves and getting work done, if that means dipping your hands in multiple projects to get it done faster, so be it. It also shows that you have the capability to get it done in high speed (with all these extra hands)… I also see this card as a nudge to ask for help if there are willing hands. So I love the extra layer this card provided, not just your standard wood rods flying quickly through the air.

Yesterdays card was the Architect of Stones (King of Coins), this was another card that threw me off a tad but then fell in love with this interpretation of the King of Coins. I’ve always seen this card as a very wealthy, selfish person on your traditional RWS version. My interpretation of this card is someone who has a vision and it is unlimited, if we want something we can do it or achieve it, our only limitation is ourselves. So if it means collaborating with others to get something done, so be it. This is someone who will always find a way, no matter the goal or object of desire. I think a lot of time we think something is too out of the way so we don’t go after it, like my dream is to have a couple acres of land where we can have a huge garden and fruit tree space… along with a small animal rescue of goats, chickens, and (hopefully) a cow. This dream seems impossible to reach, but I know that if I take the right steps and be patient, it can be a reality!

This mornings card was the 9 of Knives… what a nightmare of a card! My first reaction was “this is where nightmares live, in this card”. When I break it down, our nightmares are simply just dreams that become reality in the form of anxiety, stress, and unnecessary worry. We are usually the cause of all this stress that hangs over our head, I know mine is! We always try to see the positive, but most of the time we focus solely on the negatives “this is going to end well… I knew this would happen”. This card urges us to dig deep and find the cause of all this. We need to change our perspective, do some shadow work, and find the root cause of our current turmoil. If you’re not willing to change, then you should get comfortable in this feeling of dread, change isn’t scary… it can be a positive thing if we take the right steps and get out of our head.

I don’t know if I will break down every card on the blog, but I may, or I may just do a group post on several cards… Not sure. I’m trying not to hold myself to any challenges, commitments, or promises as I have learned I am not one to stick with things if I become too obsessed. I go through “seasons” where I get obsessed with running for several months, then switch to creating for a few months, then back to tarot for a couple months…. I used to hate these “seasons” I would fall into, but I’m trying to accept that this is just how I work lol! It’s not that I get bored easy, I just get inspired to focus on one thing at a time. So we will see! You can follow my exploration of the Slow Holler deck on Instagram.
