This card is the first Major Arcana card in my study, quite fitting, if you ask me! This is a card about sacrifice, self-awareness, and wisdom.
In the book, Odin is actually referenced, and that is not the first time today something about Odin has popped up in my radar.
Concerning my horrid habits [lack of sleep, too much sugar, declining health due to lack of yoga], I have actually been reverting them, with much pain, and I started that with a jolting start because of my tarot cards, and my daily runes.
But also with my writing as well. I realized that if I am to properly learn my divination, and have it down in my memory [which my runes are coming quite close to that for a good portion of them], I need to take care of myself. Eating healthier is one way I have gone. I have basically given up fast food entirely (it isn’t that hard considering I have not gone out to eat in months) and giving up sugar (I am esp. doing that with my coffee, soon I bet it will be just black coffee). I am also making myself drink more water. I am “sacrificing” all these things that made me unhealthy so that I can focus better on all sorts of learning. I have my Norwegian book gathering dust currently on my desk, my tarot study (this) is moving incredibly slower (aka, I am not doing it as often as I would like and that is because some days, I can’t be bothered to get out of bed).
The healthier I get, the better I perform. The better I perform, the better I learn. And the better I learn, the better I can write. It all is a big circle, to be honest.
So with that said, I should be prepared for some sort of change, I think I already see it, but perhaps, I must keep an eye on it, and see it through myself. Give that change a little nudge out the door for the adventure that awaits.
