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 – Queen of Pentacles, Bighorn Sheep atop Bear – You are the the steady rock within your home, and the one that others look to for help, advice, and support. This may end up being far more apparent than usual this week. Remember to stay grounded and you’ll be able to handle the rest with grace.
Air – Ten of Wands and Dragonfly – Keep an eye on your tendency to put too much on your plate this week (and your tendency to feel guilty when you don’t). It’s important to keep in mind that you are working at changing things, and that might come with a bit of guilt, but it will also help you in finding a better path if you’re mindful of the changes being made as you make them. Stay tapped in and observant so that you can catch moments when you might be tempted to backslide into old habits instead of moving forward.
Water – Two of Cups and Fox – Enjoy play with Gideon this week. Get what you can and have fun with it. Enjoy your time together and use it to explore each other and the stories that you create together. You need this emotionally and it will help lift you up and bring you a greater level of happiness.
Fire – The Emperor and Salmon – Don’t spend too much time stressing over and worrying about the slump in sales right now. Just float along and let your focus turn to other things for the time being. Things are going to pick up eventually and your responsibilities will multiply exponentially. For now? Just float along and let your interests go to those things that they’re drawn to for a while longer.
Waning – Daisy (innocence) – Be careful about looking at others and the world with too much naivety. It’s all well and good to add some optimism and positivity to your outlook, but don’t let it blind you to reality and the dangers out there.
Waxing – Bee Balm (protection from illness) – Start taking your vitamins and drinking your daily tea again. It made sense to take a break from the tea for a bit while the temperatures were so high, but you need the collagen peptides, and you need your vitamins.
Take Away – The majority of this reading is about taking things easy for a little longer, enjoying what I can and savoring these slow times instead of being uncomfortable with them and anxious about them.
