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 – The Magician and Water · Flow – Take this week to get yourself back on track with your health and well-being. There is absolutely nothing that has to be done this week. Nothing at all. Use what’s at your disposal to set yourself back on a healthy path. Get out in nature, take people with you along with the tools needed for your safety. Do your meditation and allow it to sink you into a better, less jagged place.
Air – The Star and Rest – Let go of that negative headspace and put yourself in a mental space of rest and rejoicing. You have the ability to be filled with hope and give yourself the joy and enjoyment that will allow you to truly rest and recover this week, but you’re going to have to actually spend some time in nature instead of just thinking about it.
Water – Justice, Radiate, Nurture – Again we see an encouragement to get out into nature and allow it to not just heal but nurture you. Taking the steps needed to care for yourself this week will allow you to not just recover from the stress and abuse of working so much, but will allow you to find new energy and a better balance you’ve been seeking. Treat yourself good, and you will feel good. Treat yourself badly, and you will reap the consequences of that.
Fire – Seven of Pentacles, Wisdom, Earth · Roots – Annnnnnnd again we see an encouragement to get out into nature. Here, the guidance is to pour my enthusiasm into the long standing connection I have with the earth and the forest. Take some time to visit the long standing older forest land you love so much, and do some deep rooting meditation while out there. It can’t be always about the business and work… so give yourself some of what you really need right now.
Waning – Monkey – Flighty thoughts and juggling too much. Overthinking and too much multitasking. It’s time to let go of the clouded scatter. This is under your control to change.
Waxing – Crane – Make time to interject more spirituality and peace into your life. Graceful elegance and the quiet calm that comes with it is important this week, as ins fostering your connection to the spiritual world and liminal spaces.
Take Away – This week’s reading is all about getting my ass out into nature and doing some wallowing and meditation. it’s about setting to right my spiritual practices and self care. Heavy emphasis is put on my connection with nature, my gratitude practices, and meditation. Sometimes rest isn’t about lying down and taking a nap. Sometimes you can get more out of a trip into the trees than any number of naps.
