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 Wands atop Eight of Cups Rx, The Fog – Take a minute to pause, listen, and pay attention when something comes along to put your back up. Don’t allow the cloud of your emotions to let you miss something important this week or walk away from something would be beneficial in the end.
Air – The Wheel of Fortune and The Loop – Remember that things are not always going to turn out how you expect them to. It’s okay for things to change along the way, and sometimes when they do they turn out even better than you expected in the first place.
Water – Eight of Wands, The Spirit atop The Spiderweb – This is an echo of a reading that was done yesterday, which speaks of the need to look into what motivations are driving your unhealthy behaviors, and to look at what you truly need to feel nurtured rather than what you think you should need.
Fire – Seven of Swords and The Raven – You may be tempted to resort to some underhanded behavior this week to get ahead. In an echo of the Earth position in this reading, make sure you don’t act impulsively but instead check in with yourself before taking any action.
Waning – Birds and Coffin – Pause before you do anything rash. This includes cutting people out of your life. Make sure that it’s really the right decision before you act. It could be beneficial to put it off a bit to look at things a bit more closely.
Waxing – Ship and Tower – A lot of what you need to deal with right now is a solitary endeavor. It’s okay to do things on your own when needed, as long as you remember it’s not supposed to be an all-the-time thing.
Take Away – Be wary of irrational or impulsive actions this week. Go with the flow and don’t let yourself react without a bit of reflection and consideration this week.
