❤️ Self Care Saturday (On a Sunday)

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?

Le Tarot Aux Ramures Étranges, Mystical Musings Oracle, The Wooden Wildera Lenormand

EarthLa Tempérance and Stars – Take your time this week when it comes to spending and stay on track with your plans. You know there are some large expenses soon to come, so be a bit more careful than usual with what you spend your money on this week.

AirLe Jugement and Snake – You’ve spent a long time in the pit with that negative inner narrative whispering in your ear and no light to be seen. Make sure you are reaching for the light this week, and leaning into optimism and positivity, as it will help you heal from the damage done during the depression.

WaterL’impératrice and Chain – You’ll need a bit more connection to earth this week in order to find security and balance in your emotions, so make sure that you’re getting out in nature and spending enough time with bare feet to bare earth and your hands in the soil.

FireNine of Swords and Keys – Things that often feel like a catastrophe are actually the key to opportunity. Make sure you are not catastrophizing things this week. Look for what the things getting your anxiety worked up about actually have to offer you.

WaningBroom and Crossroads – It’s time to sweep away the old and choose a better path. There are more opportunities out there for you if you’re willing to wash away the stagnancy and reach for them. This week is not so much about the washing or the reaching, but about being aware of what’s possible and prepared mentally for that change in perspective.

WaxingBook and Sun – Lean hard into a positive mindset an optimism. Seek out those that can help you in adopting this mindset and making it yours.

Take Away – Today’s week is all about practicing financial moderation and leaning into optimism in the face of adversity, as well as how leaning into that optimism can assist in improving my life in swath of different ways.

Nicoletta Ceccoli Tarot, Quiet Mystic Oracle, Butterfly Circus Lenormand

EarthKnight of Wands and Swan Sensibilities – There’s lots of work going on under the surface this week. Make sure the manifestation process remains within. Sometimes, only you need to know that those things that you manifest into your life don’t just “pop” into your hands and life like magic.

AirFour of Swords and Slow Disco – What mindsets and mentalities aren’t working for you anymore? Take time to reflect on what is no longer useful in your life, and those things that you are clinging to that aren’t really a part of your life anymore. Letting go of the past can take time and letting go of attachments can be a struggle, but this week is a good time to start looking at both.

WaterQueen of Wands and Heartbreak Falls – Sometimes you have to let go of things that you’re really passionate about, even if you don’t want to. Remember that there is a boon in there somewhere to letting go. It’s not all bad.

FireTemperance and Trust the Universe – Don’t jump the gun or jump to conclusions, instead go slow and trust that everything is going to turn out right in the end, just as it always does. You don’t have to get excited. Instead stay calm, take a breath, and practice a bit of trust.

WaningKey and Child – You’re going to have to set new beginnings to the side this week in order to focus on stuff that has to do with the past.

WaxingLetter and House – Make sure whatever hiccups or anxiety inducing hurdles come your way this week, that your mortgage and home related finances take top priority.

Take Away – There is a warning here that something is coming that’s going to be very upsetting for you and it’s going to feel like the end of the world. It lives in the financial and home area of your life, and the cards this week are all about making sure that you stay calm and collected, and trust that things will work out in the end as long as you do the work behind the scenes to make it so.

Tarotgazing Deck, Garden Oracle, and The Hermes Playing Card Oracle

EarthNine of Vessels and Money – Manifest positive outcomes in reality by returning to your gratitude practice. It’s time to reconnect with many of your old practices, as was indicated in the Beltane reading you did for this year. Now is the time to remember that the things you want to develop into reality have to start through training your focus upon them in your mind and heart.

AirTen of Staves and Organization – Make sure you are using sound organizational techniques to keep yourself from becoming overburdened or overwhelmed. From past experience, you know how to strategize your time and efforts, and this week is a good time to start practicing these methods again in your life.

WaterHermit and Cool – Make sure you are evaluating your alone time with a cool and level gaze instead of an emotional one. Remember that for your alone time to be healthy, it needs to be more than just screwing around dawdling away the hours.

FireThe Tower and Gift – Shit happens, and that’s just how things go sometimes. Make sure that you are looking for the boon out of the bad. How are you going to benefit when the chaos clears? There’s always a gift somewhere buried in the ashes.

Waning Sun and Broom – Sweeping positivity under the rug instead of allowing it permeate into your life solves nothing and can create bigger problems.  Don’t ignore it just because it doesn’t come naturally to you to foster it’s growth, instead give it the attention that is needed to help it flourish.

WaxingDog and Star – Lean into your healthy friendships and allow them to foster the positivity that you struggle with instilling into your life on your own.

Take Away – There is a lot of encouragement here about rational thought and optimistic viewpoints.  It’s important to lean into that positivity and efforts towards optimism this week, and allow others to  help me in doing so.  It is also important to remember that what I focus on is what manifestation energies will begin to draw forward into my life… so focus on what is wanted, instead of what I don’t want.

Tarot Arte de Luna Rivas, Formosa Tea Oracle, Wildera Wooden Lenormand

EarthDiez de Espadas and Bilouchun Green Tea (Faith) – Keep Faith in the fact that struggles, trials, and tribulation is only temporary. Financial struggles rectify themselves, discontent with the home resolves itself, when you get sick it will pass. It might feel like the end of the world in that moment, but it’s not. Don’t forget that there will be life beyond that moment that feels like the end of everything.

AirSeis de Bastos and Honey Scented Black Tea (Passion) – Allow the faith that others have in you to lift you up and assist in feeding fresh air to your inner spark. A little outside oxygen can encourage a small spark into a roaring blaze of passion and pursuit.

WaterPrincesa de Bastos and Pine Forest Shanlinxi Oolong (Fortitude) – Don’t shy away from what you want or enjoy. Life is about exploration and experimentation, so try new things and learn from both what does and what doesn’t work. Disappointment is not a part of this process, as all has value during the journey, so don’t let it sneak in and spoil what could be a win no matter what the outcome.

FirePrincesa de Espadas and Orchid Pouchog Oolong (At Present) – Remember that you are still climbing out of the pit from your depression and need to cut yourself a little slack while finding your footing. Stop trying to focus on where you’re going and just enjoy being in the moment for the time being.

WaningRider and House – It’s time to put away the stress of the house hunt and let things settle for now. Soon you’ll be back on it again to help in finding a place to buy, but you successfully helped in finding the “landing pad” rental and there’s nothing more to do in this area of things right now.

WaxingDog and Ring – Focus on those that are loyal and committed to you. Lean into them and allow them to help you feel secure in the knowledge that you are not alone.

Take Away – When bad things happen, remember that nothing lasts forever.  That includes the depression and the climb back out of the pit.  You’ll get there eventually.  Lean on others and trust in their loyalty to help see you through. Enjoy your connection with them and let them help in the climb. Savor your experiences, for even the bad ones have value.

Crystal Visions Tarot, Joyseeker Oracle, and Heloise Lenormand

EarthAce of Cups and The Koi – Allow your true feelings to show when asked your opinion on the new opportunities you will be exploring this week with your visitor. She needs honest feelings and opinions on what will be best for her financially and that will help her in finding the stability she needs. Help her to explore where her priorities and values lie, and how she defines “wealth” in her life.

AirFive of Swords and The Otter – Take time this week to examine where you might be shooting yourself in the foot… or stabbing yourself in the back, as is seen in the card’s imagery. What are you making more difficult than it has to be? When you find yourself struggling or frustrated, take a minute to consider this and see if there isn’t a better way.

WaterTen of Swords and The Jaguar – Remember, as you continue to climb out of the pit, not to look at the depression as a handicap or a flaw. It is a way to explore the world from a different perspective and see things differently for a time. It allows you to see more than someone who does not experience these things. Don’t be ashamed of it, as it has value.

FireJudgement and The Bat – You deserve to have a break now and then, and anyone that cannot accept that and tries to judge you harshly for it doesn’t deserve to have a piece of your energy and effort. Remember that their judgments say far more about them than about you.

WaningMoon and Mice – Corruption of confidence in your intuition and inner knowing. Don’t allow insecurity to creep in and cause problems.

WaxingWoman and Ship – Your visitor. She’s visiting for a short time and needs your help while she is here. Train your focus in this direction in the week ahead.

Take Away – For the week ahead, it’s clear that my focus needs to lie on making sure that Ms B gets what she needs out of this trip.  That is… honest opinions and support.  Then, once the visit is over, to make sure I give myself the rest and recovery I need without judgement.

Anima Mundi Tarot, Energy Archaeology Oracle, Binx Lenormand

EarthTen of Wands, Forgiveness atop Pride – Shit happens. Sometimes you over work yourself a your body is upset as a result. Sometimes money gets mismanaged or unexpected expenses rear up and you feel overwhelmed by it all. Don’t let your pride and resulting indignation from that pride turn around and hold you back from letting go of blame, whether that blame is directed at others… or cast upon yourself.

AirThree of Cups atop Knight of Swords Rx, Dreaming – Don’t let thoughts of “should be doing” take away the joy of time spent with loved ones. You can still get done those things you long to do, just do them with others instead of alone. Speed isn’t always everything, and sometimes help might make things go slower instead of faster, but that’s okay.

WaterTemperance and Supporting – Stop pushing yourself so hard and give yourself time to process. Emotions aren’t something that just always makes sense right away, and even when they seem to make sense, they aren’t logical.  You can’t just plow forward and ignore how you feel.  Instead, you need to give yourself time to work through them and support yourself rather than ignoring what’s needed.

FireThree of Swords and Worthy – Disappointments happen and are a part of life. They are not a reflection upon you. This is about Gid and I’s friend “N”, and the fact that he’s still repeating old behaviors I’d hoped that we had helped him to correct in himself.  Old behaviors that involve abuse.

I’m very disappointed and I’m struggling with my emotions concerning this. Honestly?  I’m just not sure I want anything to do with him anymore… and that just makes the disappointment that much worse.  These cards are a reminder that his actions are not a reflection on me and I shouldn’t allow myself to feel responsible.

WaningMice and Tree – Degradation and corruption of health caused by pushing too hard and doing too much. Burnout is a real thing, and you need to make sure that you don’t allow it to slide past a bit of exhaustion and into taking advantage of your reduced immune system to create health issues.

WaxingFish and Tower – Go with the flow for now, but make sure you’re paying attention. Look around and be watchful as you move along in the currents of time.

Take Away – There’s encouragement here to go easy on myself this week, and to take care of myself and my needs.  Make sure I’m focusing on the present, and on the positive, so that I’m not dragged back into negative inner dialogues and unhealthy habits.  It’s still not time for indulging in alone time.
