For those not on Instagram, here is a roundup of my challenge posts so far this month…
7th April 2019
So for @eroebuckjones / @connectwithyourdeck #ConnectWithYourDeckChallenge this month, Feeling April Foolish, I’m continuing to work with the Tarot of the Sidhe by Emily Carding.
What do you want right now?
Dancer Seven – Illusion’s Depths…. Yeah, I cannot deny I would love to escape into my own fantasy world, even though I know that’s just not practical. So this is definitely a “want” and not a “need”. On the upside, later today I’ll be at a Pathfinder Society meeting, so I guess I will be slipping into a fantasy world for a little bit after all 😂

When will you be good enough?
I have to love the Tarot of the Sidhe’s way of answering this question. You want a timeframe? Here have a timeframe!
I’ve multiple ideas of how to interpret this answer, from the literal, to referring to upcoming surgery and post-surgery recovery, to something a bit deeper regarding my own self esteem.

What are you stressed about today?
I admit, I don’t actively feel stressed today….tired yes, but given I finished work at 10pm last night and was back in at 8am this morning, that’s really not surprising. So I think Judgement is speaking about something much deeper that I don’t tend to think about, but I’m sure my higher self does.

What are you proud of in your life?
I do not let my nightmares control me, and while I’ve never really considered it something to be proud of, I guess the Tarot of the Sidhe thinks differently.
11th April 2019
How do others perceive you?
Warrior Five – Action Frustrated beings up some truths I normally keep out of mind. I struggle to maintain my health and happiness, and my desire to have my workplace running smoothly can make me a little petty and competitive. My ambition has been stunted due to obstacles in my path, and this has left me frustrated. I fear I take my frustrations out on my colleagues sometimes.

How confident are you to make decisions.
Dreamer Four – Restoration lets me know that when I am calm and balanced, I have no problems making decisions, but when it’s an on-the-spot thing, then I’m not confident in my ability to make a decision. If forced to do so, I will spend ages wondering if I made the right decision.

Are you confident to name your boundaries?
Now I *could* name my boundaries, but they shift. They run in cycles, emerging like a dream, only to disappear like illusions.

What makes you special and unique?
I do love the fact that The Dancer – Water jumped from the deck while I was shuffling. It’s a card of expression and spirit, and I’m currently sat here with blond hair because I’ve decided to dye it blue/green to better express my inner dragon-self!
I guess the way I personally embrace my inner dragon-self is rather unique to me. Even though I know other dragonkin who also embrace their inner-dragon, because their dragon-self is different to mine, it makes each of us unique.
(The lovely Elizabeth kindly gifted me a copy of this month’s challenge workbook after seeing my Instagram post, so I’ve been using it for keeping track of my draws this month ^_^ If you wish to pick up the original Connect With Your Deck Journal you can do so here, and you can find the April challenge workbook here.)
