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 – The Moon, Knight of Cups, Nine of Clubs (Lady of the Tree) – There is going to be a sense of uncertainty this week in the area of the home and finances. This uncertainty could easily spill over into an emotional outburst or impulsive action based off of an emotional reaction if you don’t take time to ground and find your center in the cacophony of emotions that uncertainty can breed.
Air – Nine of Wands and Queen of Clubs (Green Woman) – Instead of allowing your emotions to get the upper hand as mentioned above, lean into your skill set. Lean into those things that bring you passion and joy and use them to help you find some balance.
Water – Nine of Swords and King of Diamonds (The Apple Tree Man) – The Nine of Swords refers back to that emotional turmoil seen in the Earth position of this spread. It’s going to be a struggle to keep yourself on even keel and again we see the encouragement to find that grounding and centering. Lean into your connection with nature and seek good council from someone you trust to speak of financial matters with. This could be your accountant, considering this is the week that you drop off your taxes with him.
Fire – The Lovers and Seven of Diamonds (Dryad Maiden) – Take a leap this week. With so much going on between your emotions and your sense of stability in the home and finances department, you will need a bit of a distraction. The best place to put your focus in finding that distraction is in those things that inspire you.
Waning – Stability – In this image there is solid ground and steady well organized rows of books. All of the chaos is outside and you stand in a place of stability and surety. In this position, this is what you are moving away from this week. Understandably, this is not exactly going to be comfortable for you.
Waxing – Indigestion – Calm on the outside, a burning block of coal in your gut. This is not so much about indigestion about the sizzle of anxiety that thrums just beneath the surface and can make it hard to breathe… but not so hard that it can’t be covered over by a placid expression and projecting a sense of calm.
Take Away – The key here isn’t in projecting that calm, but absorbing it. It’s going to be a stressful week and you’re going to need to stay grounded and centered to make it through. Repeatedly ground and center… and seek council when you need it. When things feel like they’re getting to be too much? It’s time to step aside and delve into something that sparks your interest and passion in order to get a bit of escape from the strain.
