The card is asking you to personally look into what sticks out for you, why it’s coming up with Black Jasper, and come up with your own message for today’s energy and today’s meaning. It feels like everyone’s going to take something different, which is just as well. I’m physically and mentally fried from this latest Mercury Retrograde period and feel like a good amount of grounding is going to help me personally. Cheers!
