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 – Knight of Swords, The Moon, Garden Heliotrope – You may feel a bit directionless this week and uncertain in your path forward concerning hearth and home and that stability you crave. It’ll take some determination to move beyond those feelings of uncertainty. You’ll need to use that inner fire that lives inside you to push through these feelings and keep your eye on the prize.
Air – Six of Wands and Hibiscus – Aesthetic is everything this week. Not just what appeals to you, either, but what appeals to the masses. You make beautiful things with your hands every day. Take some time this week to explore some of those “brilliant ideas” you’re always having, paying special attention to those that have extra aesthetic appeal.
Water – Knight of Cups and Violet – Another message about ego and restraint, which is the second or third of these messages this week. Take care to practice some modesty and restraint in how you feel about the results of your creative endeavors. Getting too confident could end with you tripping over your own feet.
Fire – The Devil and Hydrangea – You may feel yourself falling a bit more deeply into the trap of self soothing in unhealthy ways this week. Instead of indulging and perpetuating the cycle, it would be helpful and healthy to step aside and examine what is triggering these impulses. Once you understand where they are coming from, you can then explore solutions.
Waning – Lasya of Parvati – Gentleness and grace are the tenants of Lasya of Parvati, and in this card you are being told that this week will not be as gentle or as graceful as you might like. Although it won’t be the smoothest or easiest ride, it also won’t be the end of the world. Just take a deep breath and keep moving.
Waxing – Solve Polluti 741Hz – Make this week a time of clearing out of negative energies and cleansing. Sometimes harmful energies have a way of sneaking in to wreak havoc a little bit at a time. A little extra meditation and adding in a cleansing ritual to the process this week would benefit you greatly.
This card also feels like it is looking at the Fire position in the spread (directionality within the imagery). This indicates to me that the cleansing mentioned here will benefit me in this area of my addictions and bad habits used to self soothe.
Take Away – Use your enthusiasm for the creative process and appreciation for appealing aesthetic to pull yourself past the feelings of uncertainty that well up this week. Focus on the pleasure in the work and not the end result. As pleased as you are with your finished projects, the finish line is not the point of the work. Make sure you are doing extra self cleansing this week…. perhaps add in a second salt and vinegar soak in the tub and a couple of energy cleansings during your meditation practice.
