Daily Mindfulness Spirit Tarot/Halloween Oracle
I just really need to point out here that I did NOT in any way fudge this draw. If I was going to do that, I wouldn't have picked spiders to do it LOL *shudders*
Six of Pentacles - A balance of give and take - it could be money or energy or what have you, this is about giving when you can give and asking for help when you need it. Showing gratitude is important here as well. Use your talents to create and share with others, opening up that flow of energy and prosperity.
Arachne -Arachne was a talented mortal weaver who challenged Athena, goddess of wisdom and crafts, to a weaving contest; this hubris resulted in her being transformed into a spider. When Athena saw that Arachne had not only insulted the gods but done so with a work far more beautiful than Athena's own, she was enraged and punished her by giving her a lot of legs and made her bald. Moral of the story? Ticking off Goddesses is never a good idea.
Spider - This is about web-weaving, about connection and working with others. Grandmother Spider and Spider Woman are key deities that give us wisdom, safety and communication. This is also a reminder of the need for balance - of giving of ourselves but not overdoing it so that we become depleted.
Together: This is a day to remember balance. Of what we have, what we can share and also what we may need to ask for. It is also a reminder of humility, of being grateful for our talents and wanting to share them with others with kindness and love. Don't be all hubristic - I mean, you don't want to risk being snatched bald-headed with a lot of extra legs? Right?
And a wee ear worm to complete this post:
Weavers, Weavers, We are weaving the web of life...
