Card of The Day: 10 of Spades
Ameni. We hope all is well.
Today's Card of the Day is the 10 of Spades. This card to us always denotes hard work, particularly in the areas of our passions, or creativity. 10 is a completion number, and always signifies the beginning of a new cycle. With today also being a 4-day (and four representing stability), we are being asked to strike a stable exchange between work and play, and complete any cycles that cause us not to do so.
We all like to have fun and enjoy ourselves. Ultimately, it is one of the vital reasons we are here, and one of the reasons we work in the first place; to reach a space to enjoy ourselves. At times we forgo rest, and this is actually is an important part of any work, let alone enjoying the work that you do.
Today's Card is speaking to us in this way: We must love what we do in order to succeed. Many of us are doing work out of survival, or necessity, and this society we live in definitely has ways to convince us that we must do certain things in order to survive, or to please others. Our survival is of course important, but what is equally as important is loving our craft. You often find those that love what they do seeing numerous kinds of success, or they have the ability to deal with the trials that their craft presents them. This cannot happen without having a love for what God has blessed you with, or what has been working for you over a period of time.
This card today is here to pose the question: Are we doing what we love? An even more important question is: are we pouring Love into what we're doing? This can make or break not only the quality of the work, but also the success we may or may not see in the work (which is measured differently by different people of course.) If this is something you have not done before, or have struggled with in the past, today may be the day in which you start pouring the love you naturally have inside of you out into the world. You will be shocked at the results you get.
Meditate on this today. Ameni.
