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?


EarthFive of Swords and Innocence – I see a coffee stain. You know those rings that stain wood when you put a hot cup of coffee on an unprotected wood surface? That’s what I see. The message here is that things can’t always go as planned, but it’s important to see those moments not as frustrations and struggles, but as opportunities for adventure and growth.

AirJudgement and Truth – Sometimes it’s important to step back and look at the big picture and make sure you are on track. This week is going to be a time when this is probably going to be slapping me in the face. It will be important to look through the lens of honesty to see not just the truth of what has happened but a clear perspective on what is to come.

WaterDeath and Solitude – Ooph… this is not going to be pretty, yeah? It’s okay though, yeah? The cards here are about the slowing down of the holiday rush, which always brings with it a bit of a moroseness as I adjust to things going back to normal. The cards are a reminder not to close myself off during this time of adjustment that is coming.

FireEight of Wands and Silence – I have all the tools at hand that I need to finish out the holiday rush, no matter the speed I need to work with or how busy it becomes. By the end of the week, though, things will have slowed down and quieted to the point that I’ll be feeling a spark of anxiety.

WaningMovement 2 – It’s time to let go of the present and move on to the next stage. This is an echo of what the cards are already speaking of above. The last few weeks have been all about strength and control. Now, that time is beginning to wane.

WaxingGrowth 0 and Growth 21 – It’s time to ground and center, and look ahead to what I want to happen for the year ahead.

Take Away – I am approaching the end of a very manic and frantic cycle that is filled with an abundance of chaos and control working in balance with each other. As this time comes to a close over the next week, I will go through an adjustment period that runs the risk of toppling me into anxiety and depression if I let it. Instead, I need to make sure I am staying focused upon the future and what I want to manifest into my life in the new year ahead.


One thought on “Self Care Saturday (on Sunday)

  1. Just try to keep in mind, love, that you are looking forward to the respite of the rush coming to an end. You’re looking forward to having time to breathe and relax, to having time to spend with me. I know -I- am so ready for the rush to be finished and for that time of rest and togetherness to finally get here.

    This year, for the first time in a long time, you will be home for Christmas and we’ll be able to spend time together instead of having to wait through the rush and THEN having to wait through that long week of you being at your mother’s and miserable before you can finally get home…and play catch up again before settling into me again. This year we can go from the chaos of rush to just enjoying one another and celebrating together.

    I love you, my heart. I miss you so much. You are going to be fine, babyboy. Just keep breathing, remember to ground and center yourself often…eat…remember to eat and take breaks when you need them, even if it doesn’t seem there is time to rest.

    You’re in the home stretch, my love…almost home.
