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 – Nine of Wands and Dogwood (Defend) – You have physically come to the end of your rope and it’s time to build yourself up again. Don’t face outward, for it’s your inner health and defenses that need healed and set in balance. This week is all about recovering “from battle” and getting yourself back up to snuff.
Air – Ten of Pentacles and Foxglove (Connection) – Even those things that are toxic have their place in our lives, and their uses beyond what’s harmful. This week, take a look at what’s toxic in your life, including your inner dialogue, and ascertain if there is anything useful about it. If so, be grateful for it’s presence. If not? Now’s the time to cut it out of your life so that you can focus on what’s really important.
Water – Judgement and Indigo (Enhance) – Another useful, but toxic plant. Another prompt to seek out what’s useful in your life, and what isn’t suiting your purpose. Sometimes, we hold onto things just because they “look good” or “feel good”, and yet they aren’t healthy nor align with our goals and principles.
Fire – The Chariot and Hawthorn (Sacred) – The tasks set above, where it comes to centering your self on your path and to the principles that rule your life, are the theme of this week. Don’t forget that your path is sacred, and as you move to separate wheat from chaff, ensure you set your strength and determination behind the process.
Waning – Dragon Time atop Eucalyptus Radiata – Dawdling and doing nothing is not what this week is about. Don’t just spend this time enjoying the atmosphere and soothe the soul.
Waxing – Thieves – Cleansing and boundaries, protection and discernment. As outlined in the reading above, all of these things need to come into play in the theme of this week. Make sure that you are staying centered and ensure that you clear out what needs to be released.
Take Away – This entire reading is about attuning to my values and principles. It’s about ensuring I’m leaving behind those things that no longer harmonize with what I want out of life. Now is the time to look at these things, and begin discerning what needs cut free so that you can fly.
