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 – Student of Needles and Choice – Make the choice to learn new skills. Make the choice to yield to authority. For god sake, make the choice to DO YOUR FUCKING TAXES already. This is always a very “in your head” activity that makes you feel like an idiot and a novice every single year. But you need to get your ass in gear and get it done. Now.
Air – The Alchemist and Fear – You have all the tools and knowledge you need in order to get “the thing” done. Stop avoiding and sidestepping out of the discomfort of fear and just do it already.
Water – Three of Seeds and Discover – You can help alleviate some of the emotional issues putting this off for so long is creating by bringing in help. You’ll be surprised just how much they can help in making task that you need to get done this week less painful for you. It’s okay to ask for help, even in this.
Fire – Ten of Needles and Nobility – You feel overwhelmed, and that is entirely due to this issue of trying to take on this task all on your own and keeping the stress and work of the process from others. You think you’re protecting them in the process, but you’re really just hurting yourself and your business.
Waning – The Blue Lady (Nothing is Impossible) – Come down to earth and put away unrealistic expectations. There really are indeed impossible things in life and you need to get in touch with that side of things and look at things realistically right now. Be practical.
Waxing – The Lady Grian (Open Your Heart) – When you open your heart, you let people in. You also allow them to know the secret things you try to hide like worries and fears, burden and struggle. Now is a time to open up. Let others close to you know what’s going on. ASK for help instead of shutting them out.
Take Away – This reading is about my taxes and the need to get them done. I can file an extension, but if I do I’m not really helping myself at all, just prolonging the agony and dread of having to get them done. The cards here indicate NOW is the time, and I need to do it. I have to get it done, and I need to get help from the girls to get everything together and finished.
