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 – Temperance and Letting Go – You need to make sure that you’re letting go of your responsibilities this week and just being in the now. Get in contact with your spirituality and use this time to find your center. Don’t allow stress concerning your responsibilities set you off-balance.
Air – Ten of Wands, Inspired, Balance – There’s going to be lots of brilliant ideas this week, and lots of ideas on what you should be doing with this time, but you need to remember that this week is meant to be a time of rest in order to restore balance. Write down your ideas and set them aside so that they don’t overwhelm you.
Water – The World and Awakening – Focus your emotional energy upon what makes you feel complete. This means spending time with Gideon, but it also means making sure that you’re doing the things that nurture your soul in other ways as well. Allow this week off, combined with letting go of responsibility, to give your emotions room to stretch and grow.
Fire – Nine of Thunder atop Flower of Stones, Secrets – This week your passions should be focused upon self-care and making sure that you’re getting the recovery time and relaxation that you need, not on work on the business. Don’t sneak around doing business shit when you shouldn’t be doing any of it at all right now.
Waning – Camel (Fortitude) – Now is not the time to push through and force yourself to go the extra mile. Take your time off for what it is, time off. Not time to catch up on other shit or get things done you have put off for “when it’s more convenient”.
Waxing – Dove (Open Heart) – Be open and receptive this week. You don’t have to guard yourself so harshly or keep everyone at arms length. Relax your guard a bit and trust Gideon and others to take up the slack in this area while you are giving yourself a bit of a break.
Take Away – Rest and recovery is the theme of the week this week. This includes not sneaking about doing work when no one is looking. You need to allow this week to be about you and taking care of yourself. Give your body, mind, and emotions the rest that they need.
