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 Empress atop Ace of Cups – Be gentle with yourself as new emotions rise up. You don’t have to beat yourself up about it, but you do need to watch how these emotions might influence your actions, and whether or not you’re giving yourself the nurturing energy you need to work through them. Self-medicating is not your friend, but rather it’s a self-destructive urge.
Air – Judgement – Make sure you’re staying focused on the big picture, and not bearing down into becoming hyper-focused on one thing. Keep an open mind in your inner narrative, as there’s no need to be judgmental with yourself or others.
Water – Capricorn Rx – Take care not to be selfish or self-centered this week. You may have a tendency to lean into these themes right now, and you need to make sure that (as the Air position in this reading recommends) you stay focus on the big picture. That includes how you are affecting others.
Fire – Page of Pentacles – Revisiting the tried and true with a new outlook would be an excellent pursuit for you in the days ahead. It’s time to start prepping for the holiday rush to come. Look at some of those menial tasks and re-invest in them this week.
Waning – Birds and Tree – It will be helpful to you to step away from the fanciful and the spiritual a bit this week. You need to connect and lean into the practical instead.
Waxing – Lily and Crossroads – Again we see a call for practicality as decision making becomes a theme to focus on this week. Not so much those split moment decisions, but some of the larger and far more important ones that build over time and require some depth of thought to work through.
Take Away – Make sure you are focusing on the big picture and the practical decisions that need to be dealt with this week. Don’t put them off until later. They’re a long time coming and now’s the time. Don’t be selfish, but instead lean into your desire to see things from multiple perspectives before finalizing anything major.
