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 – Page of Wands and Kintsugi – Breaking is a part of growing. In order to become more whole and a more beautiful soul, you must break and then mend the cracks. At the moment? Your cracks are showing.
This is a reminder that I need to take a break. Everyone needs rest once in a while in their passions and on their journeys. I have time scheduled in two weeks to have some time off, but these cards indicate if I want to make it to that point two weeks from now, I’m going to need to let myself have some time now.
There is also a reminder in here that I need to call and get my appointments made with my shrink for 2022. I usually get them made in November, but with the whole death thing last November combined with the holiday rush, I just forgot.
Air – King of Swords and Communication – Level up. Communicate. Be assertive. Lead. These cards are a reminder of who you are, where your strengths lie, and that you need to stand strong in that and not allow others to tear you down.
Water – Nine of Cups and Harmony – This week be sure to spend some time sinking into the things that make you feel good and content and happy. Acknowledging and indulging in them a bit in the week ahead will help instill harmony where things are currently feeling chaotic.
Fire – The Chariot and Healing – Lean into healing this week and adopt it as your main priority. If this means speaking out (an echo to the Air position in this reading), do so. If it means wallowing in those things that make you feel good? Do it. Take charge of your healing and what needs done for it to not just thrive, but flourish.
Waning – Scythe and Snake – Set your feelings of being attacked and the rise of emotions that came from it aside.
You’ve had a bit of time to examine why you reacted as you did, and to continue to hold onto these feelings and dwell over the experiences will only drag you down or cause you to make poor decisions in the future. Don’t allow these things to influence bad future decisions, but instead set them aside and leave them behind.
Waxing – Dog and Lady – Look toward those you trust and know are loyal to you, especially of the female persuasion.
Take Away – In the waxing position, it doesn’t say why I should be looking in this direction, only that I should pay closer attention. Whatever is coming, I will need their help or they will help mitigate the effects of. Or it is possible they will bring something into my life this week that is needed.
The rest of this is about finding balance in my life this week, where I’ve been feeling unbalanced. The cards here are all guidance on “finding myself” as I try to pull myself out of my current funk. As this trend spreads through the entire reading, that it is where the “loyal woman” comes into the picture as well.
