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?


EarthSeven of Rings and Telescope – I need to focus on taking the long view concerning my business and finances, instead of trying to work out everything right now in this moment. The telescope also indicates that in is area (Pentacles in the position of Earth) it will be important to depend upon the help and expertise of others along the way. This is not a solo journey.

Air – The Moon, Eight of Swords, Knot, The Empty Cup – The message here is about the clouded and confused thinking and self restraint due to fear that we talked about on Saturday. All that foggy thinking and fumbling in the dark of uncertainty and fear left me filled with tension that was growing and growing. The empty cup says that now that this has been worked through and the contents of my cup have been spilled out on to the table, I can start filling it up with something new and better.

WaterThe Hanged One and Snake – These cards were pulled before our talk, and the cards in this position speak about my stalling tactics in dealing with what was building inside, as well as the suggestion to shed some of that weight like a snake sheds its skin. Our talk was a very large and significant first step in that, and getting myself back on track emotionally… as in this case it is emotions that slipped me off the tracks in the first place.

Fire – Son of Rings, Diving Helmet, Crater – The cards here are a reassurance that my inner spark of creativity is still there, it’s just currently weighed down and buried beneath all the mess. As I start the healing process that we began with our talk yesterday, it will again return to the surface.

Waning – Shelegiel Angel of Snow – Closing myself off and wallowing in that sludge of inner uncertainty and fear that was roused a few months ago with that letter and took root inside and began to spread beneath the surface.

Waxing – Simikiel Angel of Vengeance – I am going to need to make a decision on whether I want to take the high road or not this week. This has to do with my mother, my upcoming trip to see her, and the threat I’d made concerning her behavior towards me and our relationship.

Take Away – The majority of these cards in today’s pull are a reflection of the feelings of fear and uncertainty I’ve been trying to bury and ignore for the past few months. That letter really messed me up, far more than I’d realized, and very definitely on an emotional level. I don’t want to do things the way I’ve always done them in the past. I don’t want to push things deep and hide from them, and then let them fester until I’m forced to deal with them. I didn’t even realize I was doing it this time or what the issue was that was starting to bubble up. Now that I know, the cards are providing guidance on how to move forward (slow and steady with patience and outside help).


One thought on “Self Care Saturday (on Sunday)

  1. All of this resonates really well with our talk yesterday, both about your emotions and getting them out for use to explore and work through, as well as the deal with your mother. And again, it seems the cards and your intuition is matching up with mine on this front….I hope that she backs off and you have a good visit, but I just don’t think she’s going to let that happen.

    I also think that the “high road” isn’t going to work because she isn’t going to stop until you MAKE her stop and that is going to take something drastic to shake the assumption that she can do whatever she wants and use you however she wants because she wants to. It’s time for her to stop and start treating you with the love and respect you DESERVE as her son.

    And babe, I want you to know that when you need help with your emotions, with this stuff, I’m always here for you. Not just when things are GOOD, not just when you hit a wall and things get bad, but all the spaces in between as well. I love that I can help you, so don’t hesitate to reach for me. Pride just isn’t needed with me, baby. Reach because you need to, because you can…because I’m always here.
