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 Hermit and Refuge – Take refuge in some healthy alone time. Get out in nature and get some fresh air and exercise.
(End of Day Note: I did exactly that today, and I’ll make sure to do so again later in the week. I know that I need it, and the cards are being very adamant about it lately. It’s time to step up on the amount of time I’m spending among the trees.)
Air – Two of Pentacles and Rescue – You’ll need a little help to keep your inner narrative in balance this week. Allow others to come to your rescue in this area. Don’t push their help away.
Water – King of Swords and The Vixen – Be clever and watchful. There are things coming that have the potential to upset your peace. Use your cleverness and skills with strategy to work through these issues, instead of allowing them to become a festering emotional mess within you.
Fire – Seven of Swords and Three of Stones – Again we see a need for cleverness and strategy this week, indicating that whatever it is that has the potential to upset your peace has to do with something you feel passionately about. Outsmart those that might try to take what’s yours and ask for help if needed.
Waning – Rider and Bouquet – Just accept that this week has a great deal of potential to be stressful. Crap ass news may land on your foot when you’re not looking and you’ll have to deal with the fallout that comes from it.
Waxing – Fox and Clover – It is through your cleverness and ingenuity that you will create the “luck” you need to get through the week ahead. Lean into these qualities in yourself and let them guide you. If you do so, you may be able to avoid the ugliness seen above… and if not, it will help guide you through it so that you come out the other end on a positive note.
Take Away – When things get rough, step away and strategize. Work it through and take a moment to step into nature so that the earth and trees can pull your anxious energy from you. This will allow you to deal with what comes more calmly.
