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 – The Moon, Six of Cups, Mandala – There is currently a restructuring and shift of focus going on, and I need to be sure that during this shift I am focusing on a sense of pleasure in those changes I like, rather than the uncertainty involved in the changes that might trigger my anxiety.
Air – The World and Community – As indicated with the Mandala card in the position of Earth, the World card indicates a change and shift. It speaks of the completion of the chaos that the fall has been for me and a return to a more harmonious time. The reminder here is to not discount the benefits of those around me and the support they can bring to the table during the transitions taking place.
I received the World card in my Winter/Yule spread today as well (with a different deck), also in the Air position. This indicates that the message here goes beyond just the week and may stretch through the season as a whole.
Water – The Tower and The Message – Change is extremely difficult on the emotions, which is an area in which I am not the strongest confidence-wise to begin with. That can create a “the sky is falling” feeling that can turn my emotions into an fuck-all mess beneath the surface. The cards indicate this experience, but also provide encouragement for me to not close off. Instead, take care to remain open and receptive.
Fire – Nine of Cups and The Owl – I don’t need to worry about what I need to move forward in my business at the moment. Everything is in order and when the time is right, it will be there for me. At the moment, I need to instead direct my intention towards more personal interests, including my spirituality.
Waning – Intelligence – (intuitive hit off imagery) It’s time to get out of my head and stop over thinking everything.
Waxing – Move and Kitchen Magick – This is an echo of the Fire position, and speaks of having what I need to move forward when the timing is right, but that for now I need to focus more upon personal interests and my spirituality.
Take Away – Set aside business matters and financial anxieties for the week ahead. Things are going to be slow. You know things are going to be slow. This isn’t a surprise, so don’t let it tangle you up in worry, stress, and anxiety to the point you think the end is neigh. Instead, now is the time to focus on self care and development. Allow yourself time to explore some of your more esoteric interests and re-align yourself spiritually for the year ahead.
