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 – Three of Cups, Hound (Pursuit), Wood Mouse (Focus) – It’s time to bear down a bit more stringently on your spending. The cards indicate that this week you will have the urge to go in pursuit of that “feel good” sensation that purchasing something you’ve become hyper focused on can bring.
Air – Hanged Man, Three of Coins, Komodo (Trust), Gazelle (Momentum) – You may feel the urge to run from experimenting with new skills and abilities this week, but the time is ripe for delving in and taking an in depth exploration. Instead, trust in yourself and your abilities.
Water – Three of Wands Rx and Meerkat (Altruism) – The urge for generosity is upon you but due to current circumstances, so is the need to take small steps rather than contributing in the larger ways you might normally be prone to. Don’t let your desire to help others make you careless concerning your own future.
Fire – Hierophant and Yak (Strain) – Put off your lessons until next week. Although this Wednesday is supposed to be your lesson time, it would be wise to set aside that obligation until next week. Otherwise you are going to end up feeling overwhelmed and under too much pressure.
Waning – Time – As mentioned in the Fire section of the above reading, you are going to be feeling a bit short on time this week. This is more perception than reality, and yet that is not going to matter much as it’s perception that is influencing your life more so than fact while you are in the process of adjusting to that new breadth of emotion.
Waxing – The Letter – Take time to get in touch with reality so that you don’t get carried away by the ethereal realm of emotion and perception. Write things down and make ideas solid. Use your ability to sort and list to feel out the space and corners, which will allow you to grasp the difference between fact vs fiction during this confusing time.
Take Away – Turn your attention from fleeting moments of pleasure (like spending money) and sink into something more substantial like exploring your creativity. Things are going to feel a bit disorganized and out of place this week. Ground yourself by using pen and paper to reaffirm reality over perception and emotional response, and it will help you in staying centered and less overwhelmed. For now, continue to take care to keep your generosity in check so that you do not overextend yourself.
