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 – Ace of Cups and The Koi – Allow your true feelings to show when asked your opinion on the new opportunities you will be exploring this week with your visitor. She needs honest feelings and opinions on what will be best for her financially and that will help her in finding the stability she needs. Help her to explore where her priorities and values lie, and how she defines “wealth” in her life.
Air – Five of Swords and The Otter – Take time this week to examine where you might be shooting yourself in the foot… or stabbing yourself in the back, as is seen in the card’s imagery. What are you making more difficult than it has to be? When you find yourself struggling or frustrated, take a minute to consider this and see if there isn’t a better way.
Water – Ten of Swords and The Jaguar – Remember, as you continue to climb out of the pit, not to look at the depression as a handicap or a flaw. It is a way to explore the world from a different perspective and see things differently for a time. It allows you to see more than someone who does not experience these things. Don’t be ashamed of it, as it has value.
Fire – Judgement and The Bat – You deserve to have a break now and then, and anyone that cannot accept that and tries to judge you harshly for it doesn’t deserve to have a piece of your energy and effort. Remember that their judgments say far more about them than about you.
Waning – Moon and Mice – Corruption of confidence in your intuition and inner knowing. Don’t allow insecurity to creep in and cause problems.
Waxing – Woman and Ship – Your visitor. She’s visiting for a short time and needs your help while she is here. Train your focus in this direction in the week ahead.
Take Away – For the week ahead, it’s clear that my focus needs to lie on making sure that Ms B gets what she needs out of this trip. That is… honest opinions and support. Then, once the visit is over, to make sure I give myself the rest and recovery I need without judgement.
