Queen of Pentacles Rx: Self-Care & Slack

The world is not imperfect or slowly evolving along a path to perfection. No, it is perfect at every moment, every sin already carries grace in it. —Herman Hesse

The Queen of Pentacles makes things happen. She gets it done and looks after all those pesky details that may escape most people’s notice. But reversed, she’s not as effective as she’d like to be–and she’s not very happy about it.

Looking at getting her back on her game, clarification came in the form of the Five of Pentacles. The folks here are alone amongst a crowd and judging themselves as being “out in the cold.”  They are feeling lack, constriction, with the fear filling up the emotional space and blinding them to the help that’s readily available.

“How did I end up here? What did I do wrong?”

It doesn’t help.  Try, “How can I feel a little better, right now?” Because that will lead out of the cold.

Reaching out for a little emotional support is highly recommended. Look around you with the intention of finding encouragement and it will show up. Ask and let go. Maybe follow up with a nap.

We sometimes set arbitrary (and near impossible) standards for ourselves and get rather agitated when things don’t go exactly as planned. But what about setting the standards around giving our best effort? In the given moment, do what you can with what you’ve got. That’s do-able.  That’s a way of being true to yourself regardless of what else is going on. It’s a commitment worth making into a practice.

Perfection is making the best of what you've got, right this minute. #OnMyRadar Click To Tweet

Declaring yourself “enough” is an act of love. And when you do that first, then you don’t have to go looking for validation outside yourself. See how much that simplifies life?  You can find an unflappable freedom if you can train yourself to see the perfection in the moment instead of the flaw. Every moment has both, but you can choose, which you want to breathe in.

And the only way to attune to the perfection in a given moment is to be as loving, kind, and appreciative to yourself as you can.

Pretty awesome homework, if you ask me.

You cannot give what you don’t have. So first, give to yourself what you want to share with others and your cup will never run dry. And have a great week.

Are you good to YOU?

The real perfection is just doing what you can and getting the best you can out if it, you know?

Hey, this is Dixie from A Fool’s Journey. The coming week looks like there is some stress involved. Overall, I think everything will get done that needs to get done. But there’s a possibility for people kind of shuffling off the whole self-care thing. Um, which I wouldn’t recommend.

And in order to keep things going smoothly, I would suggest prioritizing, not feeling like you have to do everything perfectly. Do what you can as well as you can. And also, what you’re focusing on. If you’re focusing on what you’re not getting done as well as you would like, or if you’re, you know, focusing on what you don’t have, what’s not ready, what’s not where you want, it’s gonna be more stressful than it needs to be.

And feel comfortable, okay? Go ahead and reach out to those that are closest to you if, if for nothing else than reassurance and a little emotional support. Because there is assistance available for you if you are willing to take that step.

Reach out and ask for it. Okay. So, I would advise that. And not be too hard on yourselves. And give, give yourself just a little bit of slack. Okay?

And the week will go better. Hope that’s helpful for you. Take care. Peace out from the Goddess.
