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 – Page of Wands atop The Fool Rx, Lemon Balm – It’s okay to move forward and explore those things that strike your interest this week, but cool your jets and take it slow. No bounding forward, sight unseen. Much better to move at a more sedate pace and really enjoy each step of the journey.
Air – Death and Chamomile – Another message of calm, here the reminder is to not get ahead of yourself. Sometimes waiting sucks and we get restless when we know that changes are coming that are not quite yet at fruition. Don’t allow yourself to push or be cranky about things moving along slower than you anticipate. Just take a breath and enjoy the ride.
Water – The Lovers and Dandelion – You need to pay attention to what’s not feeling on track this week emotionally and make the changes needed to keep things afloat and balanced. In the watery landscape of emotions, the flow is ever changing, and it’s important to stay on top of things in order to stay healthy and happy. Don’t sink.
Fire – King of Wands and Uva Ursi – As you seek to find a balance that allows you to enjoy your work once more, keep in mind that you are not alone. The King of Wands loves his job and therefore, that job is no longer work. Sometimes in order to find that joy, it’s not only about what we’re doing though… it can also be about who we’re doing it with, as well as the influence that others are having upon us and our enthusiasm.
Waning – Have Fun – This week is not a time for reckless abandon. You excel at logic and analytical thinking and this week is a time to pull back and make sure you’re paying attention to every step. This doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy yourself, but you need to move at a pace that allows you to make your choices slowly and move at a sedate pace.
Waxing – Synchronicity – When you slow down (as all of this entire reading indicates this week is all about) it becomes easier to pick up on the details around you and hear the nuances of the messages coming through. Clarity doesn’t come at a clipped pace. Pay attention to the little things.
Take Away – Slow and steady, calm and sedate. These are the themes of the week across the board. Even in the areas where you’re moving forward, the idea is to take things a bit slower and savor what you’re doing rather than plowing through and disregarding the pleasure that can be had.
