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 – Justice and Beginnings – You reap what you sow, and when you reach the end of a cycle? You start again… and seek to do better the next time around. This is true in farming, and it’s true in life. You’re coming up on an opportunity to start again this week. Although you don’t know what that new beginning and opportunity might be? Make sure to keep your eyes open for it, as it’s your opportunity to financially balance the scales.
Air – Death, The Tower, Responsibility – Death and The Tower together in the same position is a bit of overkill but makes it clear this week is going to be a challenge to my new way of doing things. Responsibilities are going to push at you, creating pressure and trying to trip you up and reset you back on your old path, undoing all of the change and progress you’ve made this year. Make sure you are not allowing yourself to fall into that trap. That path is not for you any longer.
Water – Five of Wands, You Are Exactly Where You Need To Be, Base Chakra – Hold your ground. You are just exactly where you need to be in relation to your emotional growth and how you’re dealing with things. Just because things might feel like they get a little hairy tgus weej does not mean you yield to those pressures. Instead, it is time to ground down, dig in roots, and give yourself the most stubbornly steady foundation you can so that you can hold your ground through the storm.
Fire – Eight of Swords and Final Step – You have been moving forward on this journey of growth all spring and summer, and here this week you will find yourself standing at the “final step” of this journey for the time being. The business is going to try and pull wool over your eyes and blind you in order to draw you in and tie you down into old habits. Make sure you are paying attention to not just your actions but your inner dialog.
Waning – Welcoming Satan Into The Home – This week is time to focus on shutting out the things that don’t serve you. Habits that need to be put back under control, negative self talk that needs to be silenced, etc. These issues are something that needs to be told to take a hike . Now is the time to stand firm and strong.
Waxing – Blind Trust – As you release those things that are not serving you, reach deep and trust in your intuition and moral compass to carry you forward. These two qualities have never once in your entire life steered you wrong, and they will continue to keep your path true today just as they always have in your past.
Take Away – This week is full of transition and tests. Make sure you are grounding and holding strong to the values that you’ve developed over the past year as well as the wisdom of your moral compass and intuition. Emotionally, you have made it to the point where you can stabilize and hold firm, and weather the storm without losing what you have gained, but to do that you’re going to have to stay aware not just of your surroundings, but your inner negativity and its influences on both your choices and emotions.
