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 – Knight of Pentacles – Slow moving is still moving. You might not feel like things are kicking off as quickly as you would like this holiday season, but keep in mind that the rush is a ramping up to hectic and not usually simply an immediate change. There’s a time of transition involved that you’re currently riding forward one step at a time.
Air – Ten of Pentacles – This reminder has come up a lot lately, and the card is an encouragement to pay attention to what you have and be grateful for it. You have accomplished so much, so don’t allow yourself to feel that you are a failure when you are thriving instead. It might not always feel like it, but at those times is when you need to step up and really pay attention… even catalog your good fortune if needed, in order to recognize it for what it is.
Water – Knight of Swords – Use your time wisely so that you can make sure you are carving out time for those things that help you feel emotionally balanced. Don’t forsake them for progress when you have a chance to take advantage of a bit of time to enjoy them.
Fire – Queen of Wands – Do what needs done to foster and grow your business. With the rush upon you, you have a lot of opportunity to help your business grow and thrive, not just through the holiday season, but throughout the rest of the year as well.
Waning – Lily and Broom – Slide off your high horse and ease your expectations of others before you end up falling out of the saddle and with a bruised ass for your trouble. People are sometimes going to disappoint, but make sure it’s not because you are expecting too much from them… or yourself, for that matter.
Waxing – Scythe and Hourglass – As time goes on this week you are going to find yourself lending that sharp tongue of your negative inner narrative more and more of an ear. Make sure you are paying attention to this tendency and fighting back against it with a bit of positivity and optimism. The rise of these tendencies towards self abuse is natural, but needs to be kept in check.
Take Away – Don’t worry about things being a bit slower than expected at the moment, and don’t tear yourself down while waiting for them to pick up. Instead, lean into the different things you can do to help further your success, and make sure you are combating your negative tendencies instead of letting them grow as the week goes on.
