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 Emperor and Supernova – You need to approach the physical world this week with energy and authority. Bolster yourself to make sure that your spirit is indomitable, and that there is nothing that can stand in your way. Shine brightly.
Air – Four of Dreams and Blizzard – If you close your eyes, you are going to miss what’s important this week. Keep your eyes open. This does not mean you shouldn’t take care of yourself, only that you shouldn’t allow yourself to fall into depression or let the subdrop get the best of you so that you retreat and try to hide from it.
Water – Queen of Skins atop Ten of Honey, Wind – Inspire both yourself and those around you to work towards the stability you seek. This stability goes beyond financial well-being, and is about ensuring you are well physically and emotionally also. You can allow the changes going on to set you off balance and tumble you around like a fallen leaf, or you can stand firm and use these changes to your advantage.
Fire – Nine of Dreams and Haboob – Your fears appear massive, but they are insubstantial. Don’t forget that the worry, stress, and anxiety are not reality. They are temporary, like sand in the wind, and will pass… no matter how huge and insurmountable that they appear at the moment.
Waning – Abundance / Greed – Don’t get greedy. We’ve already seen in previous readings that the holiday rush is going to get off to a slow start this year. Be grateful for the abundance that comes, and don’t be greedy for more. Patience.
Waxing – Long Slog / Finishing Up – Focus on the finish line instead of the toiling gauntlet you have to work through to get there. Keeping your eye on the prize will make the six weeks ahead of you go far more smoothly than focusing on your misery would.
Take Away – Resilience and patience are both going to be very important this week. Not just patience with the business, but patience with yourself as well. Don’t allow your anxieties to overtake you this week, and make sure you are taking care of yourself instead of letting emotions and fears drag you off track and into the weeds.
