Week three of accountability on my Self Care Saturday spread in order to foster the motivation to write it down instead of just reading the spread, taking a picture, and moving on.
As I mentioned before, these readings are (not usually) bearing in on any one thing or event in my life, as the question used is asking for a more general outlook. This is a self care exercise, and are not meant as a predictive reading.
Usually, I use the same deck for a full month, but I switched out decks. I love the Anna K and it’s colors and imagery and funny little faces. BUT, I just received the Numinous Tarot and I was really feeling the urge to use it. I think I will be keeping it for the rest of the month, although I might change the oracle for something that feels like a better pairing.
The question is… What do I need to focus on in the week ahead?
Body – Ace of Tomes – “The actions you are taking now, the plans you are creating, have the potential to become important future traditions.” (quoted from the deck’s guidebook) Plan Carefully!
Mind – Nine of Candles – Persistence and Resilience. Strength gained through experience. Now is a time to utilize what life’s lessons have taught you.
Emotions – Two of Candles – (Intuitive Hit) It’s okay to be vulnerable. Don’t beat yourself up about it.
Inner Spark – Ten of Candles – Do not weigh yourself down with too much at once. There is nothing wrong with taking your time and doing one thing at a time.
Moving Away From – Duality – Less multi-tasking… better focus? (the latter part is more wishful thinking than anything read in the cards)
Heading Toward – Burden – Here is why it is time to slow down, do careful planning, stay strong, and take good care of self. Easing up on the multitasking, and being sure to bolster my confidence and take care of myself, will assist in lessening the sense of overwhelm that appears when my responsibilities are feeling like a burden.
From the fact that nearly this entire reading was in the Candles suit (aka Wands suit), the message is primarily concerning my ambitions, passions, and drive.
Moral of the Story – Be Kind to Yourself…. and make good choices!
