These Saturday 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 is not meant as a predictive reading… although that, too, happens on occasion.
The question is… What do I need to focus for self-care through the week ahead?
Earth – Justice and Rudbeckia – These cards are another warning that there will be repercussions for the line I drew in the sand last Sunday. But there is also encouragement here. Literally. Rudbeckia symbolizes encouragement and motivation, and speaks of needing to continue to move forward, even when I end up reaping what I’ve sown. Move forward, move through it… keep going.
Air – Queen of Coins, Bittersweet, Maidenhair Fern – There is accountability from the Bittersweet and the purity of something new from the Maidenhair Fern in the cards, combined with the rich nurturing energy of the Queen of Coins. Together they indicate that change is in the air, but that although that change may be intimidating, it will create positive energy and a fresh start.
Water – Five of Swords and Sweatpea – This week will present a resolution of conflict concerning worries that are stealing my time and stirring up my emotions. Make sure to pay attention to all the different angles of the problem at hand so that I can make an educated choice on the best path forward.
Fire – Nine of Coins and Henbane – There’s a whole lot of gossip flying around right now and it’s important that I don’t listen to it or allow it to influence me or my decisions. Not my current decisions, or those moving forward. Just take things slow and remain steadfast and stable.
Waning – Svalbard – This week I may find it difficult to foster the sense of hope and optimism that is so essential to moving forward into life one step at a time.
Waxing – Taormina – Just remember that with change comes new beginnings. It creates opportunity for growth, and for new ideas. Change might be scary, but it gets easier if you don’t resist it. Instead, consider embracing it and allowing it to sweep a breath of fresh air into your life.
Take Away – This entire reading is about the aftermath of my actions last week. It’s about rumors and repercussions, as well as the choices I will need to make moving forward from what I’ve done and it’s consequences.
