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 – Eight of Cups, Six of Pentacles, Night Magic – This week it will be important to focus more on yourself and your needs, and less on contributing to others. The cards here indicate that you are spending far too much time trying to fulfill the needs of others, and this week is an ideal time to take a little time away from those endeavors and let yourself loose to have a little fun your way on your own terms.
Air – Eight of Pentacles and Patience – Take some time to enjoy the moment this week instead of always planning ahead. Your business and work is well in hand, and impatience for the future won’t make it come any faster. Focus on the here… the now… pour your attention and talents into what you’re doing now.
Water – Ace of Wands, Magic Maker, Freedom – Tap into your emotions and your intuition and let these parts of you flow into your creativity this week. Allow that inner spark of passion to flourish inside you, and allow it to flow outward into your creative endeavors. Now is a time to connect your intuition and emotions to that creativity that makes life so very much worth living.
Fire – Five of Swords and Passion – Stay on guard against those things and/or people that tap into your passion and drain it away. This week is all about exploring your passions and enthusiasm, connecting to creativity and emotion. Make sure you don’t let obligations (real or imagined) stand in the way of letting that happen.
Waning – Modify – You’re reaching a phase in your growth out of the fog and stagnation from the winter months where you no longer need to “fake it until you make it”. You’ve made it into that more positive space, and now you just need to utilize it rather than taking it for granted.
Waxing – Answers Within – Take time to meditate and touch upon inner wisdom for guidance and that shining light that brings creative ideas to life.
Take Away – Take the newly discovered freedom outside of the fog of fear and uncertainty and do something with it. Take time to enjoy yourself and don’t worry so much about the (real or imagined) obligations toward others. Now is the time to embrace that freedom and have a little fun. Let go of the weight for a bit, get in touch with your inner spark, and set it free this week.
