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 – High Priestess, Justice, Home – Use your intuition to find balance at home. This week may come with a hint of imbalance as you work through getting your equilibrium back after the events of Friday and Saturday with your mother. Instead of dwelling, find the route of least resistance through use of your intuition, and allow things to balance themselves out instead of trying to right the scales on your own.
Air – Nine of Wands Rx and Incantation – It’s time to refresh and reinforce your wards and protections. Instead of going by rote, take some time to sit down and work through what needs to be done and what needs to be changed up.
Water – Ace of Cups, Fledgling of Cups, Sister – Repetition of new beginnings is going to be a theme this week. Make sure that whether you’re dealing with your new emotional growth, or approaching an emotional issue that has arisen again and again over time, that you lean on those closest to you instead of trying to stand strong on your own. It’s okay to reach out for support when you need it, and they are more than happy to lend an ear or a shoulder.
Fire – Ranger of Wands and Fall – This is a reminder that you need to start working on the preparation for the holiday rush now. The earlier you begin your preparations, the less rushed and struggling you will feel when the holiday rush starts.
Waning – Treasure – It’s funny that this comes up as what is waning over the week ahead when I just noticed this morning how sad and tattered some of my “specimens” I use in my card photos are starting to look. It’s time to toss out those treasures that have become faded and tattered, and seek out new ones to replace them with.
Waxing – Boundaries – This hearkens back up to what was mentioned in the Air portion of this reading. It has to do with making sure I get those new wards and protections in place, and reinforces the need to make sure they get done this week and are not put off until later on for whatever reasons that might come up to stir up the temptations of procrastination.
Take Away – Focusing on sharing with loved ones and the protection and balance of the energies of the hearth is going to be a theme this week. Make sure you are following your intuition and not falling into old habits. New methods are to be encouraged rather than set aside this week, as some refreshing and “sprucing up” of old and repeated processes.
