I pulled Nine of Cups this morning and braced myself. I thought, I know what it is about:
Being productive. Planning. Getting my cups, I mean, ducks in a row.
I had a long to-do list and I was in a better mental state today compared to the last few days. If I played my cards right and do most of the things on my to-do list, I would feel accomplished at the end of yet another workweek.
It’s now 16 minutes to midnight. I didn’t manage to finish a work task that I started at 10 AM and continued working on until 9 PM. I didn’t have time to run any errands today, nor to exercise and read. I haven’t written anything except of course for this.
But do I feel semi-accomplished? Tbh, kinda.
I filed my taxes, led a meeting and created an extensive excel spreadsheet. I studied 20 pages from my CPA textbook, which might seem nothing, but at least I started. Also, since I read a book to study, maybe I could claim that I also read. I checked on my cousin, spoke to my parents and told an annoying person off. Granted, I did it all with the help of three cups of coffee. But still, not too bad, eh?
It made me realize that Nine of Cups ━ feeling accomplished, can be seen as a glass half empty or half full. Especially for a Virgo like myself. Today, I chose to see it as the latter.
