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 – King of Earth and Desire – Owning what brings you pleasure and stirs your sense of desire is the theme of the day to day for you this week. This isn’t about buying or spending, but rather ownership without shame or self recriminations or worry over what others may think. What you like is what you like, and that’s that. Stand tall with pride and allow your authentic self, as well as what makes you tick, to be seen.
Air – Queen of Water atop Four of Air, Direction – Make sure that you are spending down time getting in touch with your emotions and finding ways to bring them forward to others in a way that creates connection and worth instead of imbalance and discord. This may require a pause before speaking up in order to move things in the right direction.
Water – The Lovers atop Temperance, Wonder – It’s okay to wander around with rose colored glasses on sometimes, as long as it’s done with a bit of moderation and caution. Seeing things from this perspective can create a sense of balance on an emotional level that’s currently missing in your life. Give it a try.
Fire – Eight of Earth atop Seven of Fire, Playfulness atop Adventure – When it comes to what you know is right, you’ll fight to the ends of the earth to stand your ground against those that might try to sway you off your path. You’ve had a lifetime of practice with this from a young age and are very adept in the ability to stand by your own principles and ideals. Just remember it doesn’t always have to be so serious. It’s okay to approach such confrontations with humor and a sense of fun and adventure, instead of with outright aggression or dispassionate disregard.
Waning – Serene Soul Connection – Okay so maybe things might not go as smoothly this week on the romantic side of the coin as they have just recently. Just remember that even when that connection isn’t at its most relaxed and serene? It’s still there and holding strong.
Waxing – Tear Down Your Walls – Want to restore that serenity? Suss out those hidden walls that you’re ignoring and pretending don’t exist and give them a hard poke or two. And make sure that you avoid building on those preexisting walls or building new ones.
Take Away – Tapping into the heart of your wants, desires, ideals, and values is going to be a core part of this week’s theme and you need to make sure that you are being honest with yourself as well as others. That doesn’t mean just dropping word bombs everywhere and sweeping the debris up later. Pause and think, and take a moment to consider if this is really a time for aggression, before you speak and things will go a lot smoother all the way around.
