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 – Page of Fire, Queen of Earth, Woodpecker, Caterpillars – Stay on track with your goals to avoid using your resources unwisely. You want to be ready when opportunity knocks, so take this time to stock up both energetically and otherwise so that when that opportunity comes to transform and fly you are ready to take that leap.
Air – Ace of Earth, The Chariot, Panda – Take that leap too soon and you will miss that opportunity to grab hold of a successful start and ride the wave. You don’t want to leap ahead too soon and get trampled by the horses instead of ending up driving the apple cart. Use this time of waiting to care for yourself and foster loving relationships with others.
Water – Seven of Water and Goat – This week is a good week to indulge in some of those imaginative creative projects you’ve been wanting to get into. The more challenging the better, as there’s no obstacle too high when you have others on your side. My most challenging project at the moment is the wood burning project I’ve been preparing for through the winter months. The cards here indicate that now is a good time to do some experimentation and practice runs.
Fire – Ten of Water and Blue Jay – Delving into creativity this week will help satisfy a lot of needs that you’ve been suppressing that need to get out. It will also assist in fostering a sense of well-being that is, at the moment, a bit off-kilter.
Waning – See Beauty in Others – There has been a few times over the past week that you have felt inferior and had difficulty in stepping out among others because of it. As this week progresses, that sense of inferiority will ease and you will find your footing once more.
Waxing – You Come from Love – Sometimes you need to step outside your own self-perceptions to better understand that you are prefect just as you are. Don’t allow beliefs in your own limitations to hold you back from growth and progress.
Take Away – Now is not the time to be leaping forward into action, but rather a week for waiting and holding space. In that space, you’ll need to keep yourself distracted. That distraction would be best served by being something creative that brings joy and captures your attention, challenging your creative spark and abilities with something new and different. The wood burning project I’m working toward is an excellent outlet that fits the bill and checks all the boxes. At the same time, it will also be important focus on staying contented and grateful for this time spent with loved ones.
