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 – Hierophant, Ten of Coins, New Moon – Sharing knowledge with the community and leading them on a new adventure, using that knowledge to empower them into moving forward into something new. I will be teaching a lesson over in Tarotholics on Wednesday evening about intuitive interpretation of card combinations as a follow up on the intuitive course that I taught last month. The cards indicate that it will be important to focus here this week so that I am sure to be prepared.
Air – High Priestess and Third of Spring – It’s okay to go off the deep end into the mystery. It’s okay to follow your curiosity and those little niggling nudges that drive you forward into discovery and realization. Set your brain aside this week and take some time to just go with the flow. Don’t be afraid of getting lost… that, too, can be its own adventure.
Water – The Star and Spring Equinox – Don’t allow worries and doubts to drag you down. Spring is a time for hope and rebirth. In these difficult times, it’s even more important to focus upon that hope and rebirth and allow the fresh air of spring to wash through your emotions so that they are given the room to grow rather than made to wither and stagnate.
Fire – Nine of Cups, Six of Swords, Betrayed King – If you don’t find a better way to share the wealth and enjoy it with others instead of alone, you’re going to be sorry. This associates with my readings on Saturday, which spoke of making sure that there is appreciation for the time I’m spending with loved ones over the term of this crisis. I very much like alone time, but the cards clearly indicate I need to make the most of this opportunity for something different.
Waning – The Opera – Everything isn’t about you. Make sure that you are leaving room for others to say their piece and share their own story.
Waxing – The Tunnel – A new opportunity and metamorphosis, this card is an indication that I need to focus on that light at the end of the tunnel. There IS a light, even if at the moment it is dim and hard to see. Things will be different on the other side of that threshold, but that’s okay. Just keep focused on reaching the light and you can worry about what comes after… after you get there.
Take Away – This is a message of hope. It’s about fostering hope in others, and also within myself. It’s about making sure that I am doing what needs done to stay mentally and emotionally healthy, and seeking to ease me into a path that will cause my feelings of “rudderlessness” to ease a bit during this time.
