3 card spread
Today/Focus/Let go of
Nine of Swords - Worry is a waste of time and energy. Don't let your thoughts control your path. Let go of unhelpful beliefs and don't let your thoughts run away with you. Allow things to unfold as they will - you are the master of your thoughts and you control where you are going. Conquer the negative thoughts and replace them with positive intentions and plans.
Basilisk: A serpent who can cause death with a single glance. The weasel is the only animal that can face and even attack it. It can only be killed with the crowing of a rooster, so, until very recent times, travelers were carrying a rooster when they ventured into areas where it was said that the basilisks lived. Best to either keep your eyes closed til morning or carry a rooster and or weasel with you at all times that way you are covered for anything and you don't need to worry about it.
6 of Cups - Something from the now is reminding you of the past - a reconnecting to the best feelings you had once and is coming back around again. Open your heart, it is safe so give freely of that open heart. What gifts can you give uninhibited and childlike?
Genny Greenteeth: A river hag similar to a grindylow, she would pull children or the elderly into the water and drown them. The name is also used to describe duckweed, which can form a continuous mat over the surface of a small body of water, making it treacherous, especially to unwary children. A warning perhaps to not get too nostalgic for the past - it may come back to bite you - we often paint the past with rosy memories - if you find yourself doing so, perhaps whack yourself in the head with a frying pan ala Tiffany Aching. (Wee big jobs)
Let go of:
The Emperor - Leadership, authority, rules and achievement. I have the power to control my destiny. Unyielding structure and self discipline.
Sphinx: Part human, lion, it is mythicised as treacherous and merciless. Those who cannot answer its riddle must suffer a fate typical in such mythological stories, as they are killed and eaten by this ravenous monster. Today is a good day to steer clear of taxing riddles - it just sounds painful.
