As I’ve 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.
The question is… What do I need to focus for self-care through the week ahead?
Earth – Seven of Cups and Abracadabra – I am the creator of my own destiny. When I seek to look into the future and see the opportunities available to me, tap into my inner knowledge and take the path that feels right, rather than following my intellect.
Air – Four of Cups and Under My Umbrella – In the week ahead, I need to focus on allowing myself time to process my feelings rather than using my intellect to push them aside. Instead, foster my personal growth by being kind to that vibrant inner emotional self that I’m usually so eager to shove in a box and ignore.
Water – King of Cups and The Gift – Don’t forget that that emotional inner self is a gift. Be curious about it instead of disregarding it as useless and shoving it away. By allowing myself a chance to visit with this side, it will allow growth and development that will allow me to better integrate that part of myself into my life and find balance with that aspect included.
Fire – Strength and Transformation – This is the only position in the spread that did not come up with cups, which feels it is saying that this message is unrelated to what is going on in the other three positions. At the same time, it does relate in, in a way. As with the topic of these cards resting in the fire position, there will always be an emotional response involved. This is indicated in the fact that the card that came up is a majors card, rather than a card from the minors.
With what’s been going on with my online shop at the moment, these cards are a message to remind me that I am strong, and that change happens. Even when change looks bad, it can be good in the end.
Waning – Vision and The Maze – I need to focus on seeing things in a light of unity rather than allowing the drop and the solitude that comes with the rush sucking me into feeling as if I am all alone and without support. This is a call for a change of perception… and stepping away from that darker place into a lighter, softer viewpoint.
Waxing – The Moon and Community – Step forward into my more social nature and allow others to help me. The holiday rush is a time of great struggle for me, and I need to get in touch with my inner self and make sure I’m paying attention to when I feel I am floundering and need help… then GET that help from others rather than biting the bullet and trudging onward on my own.
