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 World and Balance – It’s time to put things back in balance and this is the week to do it. You need to look beyond the now and plan ahead, so it’s time to put away the desires for instant gratification and focus instead on making sure that your path into the future remains as smooth going and balanced as possible. Take some time to evaluate and restructure so that you achieve a better equilibrium.
Air – Knave of Pentacles and Awakening – Dream time is coming to an end and it’s time to firmly plant both feet on the ground once more. The dragonfly indicates change. It’s time for an awakening from the lackadaisical moments with your financial stability. These careless moments need to now come to an end as you begin to truly focus on what’s important once more. Make the concentrated effort to be mindful and start upon a path of strategy once more.
Water – Ace of Pentacles and Certainty – Re-establishing the path towards financial stability may take a bit of a tole on your emotions. In order to ease those feelings of being tossed up into the air, focus on your confidence to reach your goals and allow doubt to fall away. It is through this sense of certainty you will find comfort and ease in the newness of redirecting yourself back on track.
Fire – Queen of Wands and Wishes – Wishes are the beginning of dreams, but
without the means to achieve them. To achieve your dreams takes hard work and perseverance. Sometimes the steps you take to reach your dreams are a fast sprint, and sometimes they are slow and arduous. But with each step you take, you learn along the way and build upon your experience and know-how. This week is a time to lean into those dreams and desires, and use the experience and know how you’ve achieved to pave the way to even better things.
Waning – Whole – It’s time to start picking things apart and examining the pieces. If you leave things to rest for too long, you will find the chinks and cracks too late to actually do anything about them.
Waxing – Inventory – Taking stock is important now. As you pick things apart, make sure you are paying attention to what you have… and what is needed. Make lists and use these lists to prepare for what’s to come.
Take Away – My self care this week has a lot to say about moving into the busy season that’s to come and making sure I’ve started the process for preparing for it. I’ve already set up a schedule to put in one hour each day in the “restocking” project needed to get things ready for the holiday rush… but I’ve yet to actually put that plan into action. The cards this week say that now is the time. I need to begin preparations now so that I can do it all in small bite sized pieces rather than having it pile up and have to be done in huge time-consuming chunks later on. There is promise in these cards that I will feel better once I’ve begun and in being proactive than in procrastinating and letting things build up in the background.
