Self Care Saturday (on Sunday)

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?

SCS

EarthFive of Swords and Trust – It will be important to remember to trust in yourself over the next week in order to better work through the struggles that the week will bring. These struggles more than likely have to do with the holiday rush, and I need to remember that I am strong enough and resilient enough to work through this time of year without things falling apart completely.

AirKnight of Pentacles and Return – I need to remember to balance all that hard work and  productivity that I have going on right now with some time outside among the trees. My mind is becoming crazily cluttered during all this work going on right now. If I want to keep things in balance, I need to remember to connect with those things that strengthen my roots.

WaterFive of Pentacles, Soften, Revive – This appears to be a recurring theme this week. The cards indicate I need to stop closing myself off and make sure I remain open to the support of others in my life to help me keep my emotions not just balanced, but uplifted and out of the dark pit that they can sometimes fall into.

FireFour of Cups and Distance – Step back from the apathy, but keep the distance. I can’t explore my creative spark right now when my drive and ambition is being challenged by an overwhelm of work. Don’t allow this separation from my creative spark to bring me down. The holiday rush will be over soon and I can return to that spark once more.

WaningHe of the Fiery Sword – That fierce, go-get-em energy that pushes forward, ever forward towards justice and right and the goals that require an extra oomph of drive.

WaxingGloominous Doom – In the week ahead it will be important to pay attention to self-destructive habits and ensure that I do not begin to slide down the slippery slope of pessimism and negativity that can often come with the self destructive urges that can often visit and draw my eye and interest.

Take Away – It appears that this week is going to be a bit of a struggle, especially on the mental and emotional level. I need to make sure I watch out for pitfalls that could cause me to slip into a depression either in the now, or in the near future once things slow down. A little extra self-care and me-time could go a long way this week in helping keep things balanced and healthy.

One thought on “Self Care Saturday (on Sunday)

  1. You’ve actually done really well this past week on working like crazy and then taking a little bit of time for yourself. Naps. An evening with me. A day to rest and recouperate from the craziness of your week. You just have to keep taking those stolen moments for yourself, love, and not let the workload overwhelm you.

    Also if you start to head down that dark path, I want you to take a break and come talk to me, hm? Talk to me, share with me and let me help you find a more stable center so that you can go back to being productive. Don’t bottle those things up or keep them to yourself where they can fester and grow bigger and more destructive.

    I love you, my heart.
