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 Cups and Joy – You need to focus on how good it is to be home. Don’t worry so much about what needs to be done and spend your time finding pleasure in where you are.
Air – The Lovers and Magic – Lots of time with Gideon. Communication and play intersect when it comes to the two of you, and it’s in the magic of that connection that you find a greater sense of well-being. Time with him is good for you, and even more so this week.
Water – Queen of Pentacles and Intuition – Be generous with yourself. You’re just stepping back into your intuitive process. Give yourself time to ground and become centered in it again. Don’t jump in too quickly and overtax yourself in the process.
Fire – Knight of Wands and Finding Connections – You are looking for the flow that connects the holiday rush to this now, slower pace. There’s a lot of adjustments going on right now and you’ve yet to find that easy transition. It’s there, just keep looking for it. The sudden slow down doesn’t have to feel negative if you can find things to tap into for that energy to flow during this time.
Waning – Trust atop Joy – Back home you take with you the knowledge of trust and joy, love and togetherness that you discovered over your Christmas visit. It might be gone for now, but that doesn’t mean you have to lose the memory of it as well.
Waxing – Pressure – That Knight of Wands is really pushing, your adrenaline still flowing from the rush of December. If you don’t find an outlet, it’s going to burst.
Take Away – Focus on the stuff that makes you happy this week and work at putting your energy into different ideas and venues. Allow it to connect and flow, rather than letting this energy build and stew into a messy storm with no outlet.
