Daily Draw

I need to start working with my cards more. In an effort to weave the cards together and get to know them better, I'm doing a "daily draw" - though I don't know how daily it will be. I'm just going to ask the cards what I need to consider and draw three of them.

Today, I just cut the deck three times and flipped each part over. I'm using my Lovecraft deck.

Three of Swords - Disruption
Eight of Wands - Swift action
Ten of Cups - Achievement realized

those are my three cards to consider throughout the day and how they relate to each other.
