The Hermit

My card for this month is The Hermit, a card that indicates a time of withdrawing from society, self-exploration, emotional healing and self-care. It’s actually dreadfully appropriate to what I feel I need right now as I grapple with the death of my grandmother.

I kept up with my blog during my grief following August 2015, but I honestly have no desire to do that again so soon. I’m weary and angry and feeling extremely complicated emotions. I’m generally also pretty burnt out and fed up with social justice concerns, as I wrote about in my last post.

Therefore, I’ve decided that the best thing I can do this month is follow the leading of my tarot card. I will be taking a break from blogging for the time being. I hope when I return that I will be brimming with things I want to talk about.

Right now, I need to turn inward.
