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 and Discover the Treasure – This week is a time to look for the boon. You’ve done well with getting finances in order and you’re strategizing your way to a more organized home. But there’s more to be found and more to be had. Take time to explore and discover what these boons you’ve not yet found might be, and use your practical nature to put them to use for your benefit.
Air – Three of Cups, Soldier atop Find True Home – Make sure you are reflecting on what makes home… home. Reflect on the truth in the fact that it’s about those you surround yourself in. Home is not a place… it’s a feeling. It’s a feeling that you only get in the company of certain people. Now is a good time to connect with who those people are and appreciate that comfort and camaraderie that they provide.
Water – Eight of Cups and Choose the Path – If it’s not working? Let it go. Just do it. It’s okay to decide that what once held sentimental meaning has faded over time and that something is now just a dust collector instead of something of emotional value. As you go through the things you are donating over the week ahead, keep this in mind.
Fire – Six of Swords atop The Tower, Tyrant – Again we see an encouragement to choose a direction and move away from what isn’t working, although in this case it is very clear what isn’t working is people treating you like shit. Don’t let anyone tear your confidence or compass down. It’s not okay. You can turn and walk away from that shit at any time, so do it sooner rather than later. No reason to stick around and listen.
Waning – Letter and Whip – These cards echo upon the Fire position above, and they are about walking away from crappy news that turns into self flagellation. Do not allow how others deliver their opinions to drag you down and make you harder on yourself.
Waxing – Ship and Mountains – Delays and more delays. You’re going to struggle with the path forward to getting to where you want to go this week. Instead of allowing the hurdles and delays to feel like obstacles, use them to direct your attention to other things that you can do in the meanwhile.
Take Away – Purging the bad and letting go, combined with seeking out the comfort and familiarity of those that you love and are familiar with are the theme of this week. Whether it’s things that aren’t doing it for you anymore or people’s words that could be hurtful, leave them behind instead of letting them stick around and be in the way. Instead, turn your focus towards family and friends, support and comfort.
