Guidance:  You must realize this is a solitary path, distraction may hinder divination

Journaling

There are so many meanings to this card.  It can mean choosing a path of silent contemplation.  I'm realizing that this card is really a reminder to me to take the time for myself that I need to meditate and journal.  I've been so busy that I haven't really made time for me.  I've prioritized everyone else before me and it's showing.  I've let other people make their failure to plan my problem.

This is an interesting card for me as I usually read it positively as taking time for myself and taking care of my own needs.  However, some of the work I'm doing with Daring to Love has me asking whether or not I am using the time alone as a time to isolate and avoid interaction.  I don't know what the right answer is.  I know that for me, time alone feels special, but I also know that I can use time alone to avoid other people and to avoid social connections.  I think the key is that I need to figure out what the right mix is for me.
