August Challenge: Attitude to Have (Day 4)

This one is a draw from the court cards only. The court cards embody stages of life as well as personality types. Though we usually embody the traits of one more than the others, the traits of all the court cards are somewhere in us, waiting to be pulled out when needed.

For today's challenge, I pulled the Queen of Pentacles. The Queen of Pents is quite the practical woman. She's down-to-earth and quite the matriarch. She takes care of practical matters efficiently and creates a home that is welcoming. If you're in a pinch, she always comes through and never makes a fuss about it. So how can I embody the attitude of this queen?

Her practical qualities can be applied to almost any aspect of life, but her primary domain is home, and in the case of the attitude I need to channel, I believe it's the home life I should focus on. Living in a small home with two boys can lead to a less than inviting atmosphere! Not to mention school starts again soon, and I expect to entertain friends toward the end of the month. My attention needs to be on my home, and I need to borrow her practical, can-do attitude to get my house into shape this month.

As mundane as this may seem, daily chores and organization are an important part of building a warm home atmosphere. I will openly admit that she is not the queen I predominately resonate with, so being called to pull her out of the deep, dark corner she cowers in inside of me is a major kick into action. (And yes, she's cowering. You should see this disaster.) Hopefully I can call on just enough of her aspects to start the school year off successfully as well as host a bangin' gathering at the end of the month!
