The prompt for this reading came from one of my Discord servers and is as follows: “As I sit here listening to the trees around my apartment getting trimmed, it’s got me thinking, where could use some trimming in my life? So for this week’s prompt, let’s look at the things in our lives that could use some trimming, whether it’s what that should be, or if you already know, how you should go about doing so?”
What in my life could use a bit of trimming right now?
Two of Hearts – Social obligations. It’s too damn hard to be fucking around with all those social obligations. Beg off on the things you can so that you have more time to relax and catch what cool breezes you can.
How can I begin this trimming in my life?
Queen of Clubs – Let them know that you support their enthusiasm and that she would love to join in another time in the future. Assure them that your interest is there, but that is just not the right time. In this way you keep their enthusiasm alive, but can get the space you need for right now.
How will my life look after the trimming has taken place?
Six of Spades – Quiet, peaceful, and less chaotic. Like all things, it won’t last for long, so lean into the change for the time it’s here and enjoy it to the fullest.
What is the possible outcome if I avoid this task?
Go through a period of feeling as if you are not getting what you need (Five of Diamonds), followed by settling into a group dynamic (Three of Diamonds) that will orient you towards your goals in the future (Ten of Diamonds).
The question here remains, if you’re going to be heading towards these goals regardless, then why aren’t you taking the space you need when you need it. Don’t let this positive possible outcome keep you from self-care.
