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 – Two of Cups – Your sense of stability in your life often comes from knowing everything is simpatico between you and those you love. Make sure that you are connecting with loved ones in order to foster this sense of connection and stability in your life and theirs as well.
Air – Knight of Swords – Take extra care to write down your ideas. They might feel memorable in the moment, but once the excitement wanes a bit you’re going to need those notes.
Water – Eight of Swords – Don’t ignore the approaching rain clouds. Pretending they don’t exist is not going to help either your emotional or mental health.
Fire – Four of Swords – Make sure that you are approaching your ambitions with a manageable mindset. You can’t just plow through things all the time, expect everything to come out okay, and expect for you to come out the other end unharmed.
Waning – House and Tree – Don’t hide away from the world and expect to sustain good health in this manner. When you retreat, everyone suffers, not just you.
Waxing – Star and Key – Hope and positivity are the key to overcoming the encroaching rain clouds.
Take Away – There are warnings here that the depression is going to start trying to edge in this week. Make sure that you are leaning into that positivity and optimism that you know can help keep you afloat, and don’t retreat from others. They need you… and you need their help to get through the struggle. If you ignore the approaching depression, it will sneak up on you and you’ll miss your opportunity to do something about it.
