❤️ 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?

Self Care Saturday Tarot Reading with the Tarot Fauna Deck and Lenormand by Carta Mundi

EarthTwo of Shells – The more time you share with those you love, the more steady and supported you will feel. You will be reminded this week that sometimes you need others in order to find your center and ground.

AirAce of Torches Rx – Set new ideas and inspirations aside for now. Write them down for later instead of trying to pursue them in the moment. You don’t need to add more to your plate at the moment, no matter how good the ideas seem.

WaterSeven of Torches – Take care to keep your focus on what you hold dear and important. Distractions may try to tear your attention away this week, but you need to keep your eye on the ball.  Segways may slip in and try to rain on your parade, but they don’t have to take over completely.

FirePage of Rocks Rx – As already indicated in the Air position of this reading, now is not the time to be starting new projects. Focus on what is already within your reach and leave those new shiny ideas where they lie for now.

WaningRing and Key – You know that subscription you’ve been considering? Don’t do it. Step away from commitments and any sort of contractual obligations this week. They may seem like the keys to success, but they are not.

WaxingMoon and Book – It’s time to step back into looking at your emotions and making a concerted effort towards expanding your emotional intelligence. Open the doors back to this line of growth now that things have calmed down from the holiday rush.

Take Away – There’s a lot of warnings here about starting new things and making sure you don’t add more responsibilities to your plate.  Make sure you stay away from adding on more obligations and projects right now and focus on what’s already right before you instead, and ensure that you are prioritizing appropriately instead of just letting chaos or chance make all the decisions for you.

Self Care Saturday Reading with Alexandria's Tarot and Blue Night Lenormand

EarthTwo 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.

AirKnight 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.

WaterEight 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.

FireFour 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.

WaningHouse 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.

WaxingStar 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.

Self Care Saturday Tarot Reading with the Magical Nature Tarot and The Twilight Canticle Lenormand

EarthApprentice of Swords – Take time to learn new methods. Not everything is going to work out the way you’ve done it in the past.  You’ll have to adjust and adapt strategically to make sure you stay on top of your responsibilities this week.

AirFour of Swords – Stop overthinking everything.  Set those things that keep wiggling their way into your mind aside and take a breather.  Not everything can be solved by obsessing over it.

WaterThe Suspended One – Work on putting yourself in other’s shoes more often so that you are connecting with with more clarity and understanding to how others are feeling. Pay closer attention.

FireThe World – New trails and explorations lie ahead, but take a minute to celebrate how far you have come first.

WaningLily and Lady – Caring for someone elderly takes patience. It is a balance between helping them feel capable, and showing them where they need help in a way that keeps them open to accepting it. Ease up. She doesn’t take hearing she can’t do something any better than you do. Let her try instead. Just be there to catch her when she needs it.

WaxingMice and Birds – Gossip is a corrosion of healthy social connections. Keep this in the forefront of your mind as you move forward into the week ahead.

Self Care Saturday Tarot Reading with the Monsoon Tarot and Nocturnal Garden Lenormand

EarthThe World – It’s time to emerge from the quiet cocoon that you’ve rested in recently after the journey through your holiday rush. Getting back into the swing of things and finding your new path forward awaits your attention.

AirNine of Fire – Make sure that you are keeping your boundaries in place where your inner narrative is concerned.  Don’t let the biting cold of those harsher judgements slip past your defenses and start to chip away at the progress you’ve made.

WaterAce of Earth stop King of Water – More time with Gideon is a good thing.  Make sure that you are taking care to rearrange your time so that you are getting the nurturing energy and support you need from spending time with him.

FireDeath atop Tower – Take little steps towards change so that it doesn’t all fall upon you at once. That shit doesn’t have to come up on you and slap you in the face all at once if you use a little forethought and move in the direction of the change that’s coming a little at a time.

WaningPaths and House – Don’t sit in indecision and inaction just because the stagnancy feels safe.

WaxingCross and Bouquet – Getting unpleasant tasks done and out of the way will be a great boon for you this week.

Self Care Saturday Tarot Reading with Alexandra's Tarot and Transformation Lenormand Oracle

EarthTwo of Cups – Stability and security is not achievable on one’s own. Just because the holiday rush is over doesn’t mean you don’t still need help from others. Everything is better together.

AirSeven of Swords – Don’t get greedy. Cleverness and strategy can only take you so far. Step over the line and you could lose everything.

WaterQueen of Pentacles – Seek out those that help you feel a sense of stability and safety this week. Let them help you in finding your emotional footing.

FireAce of Wands – Too much of a good thing can be a problem. Don’t overwhelm yourself with new ideas or things you are passionate about working on. You can always write down excess inspiration to explore later.

WaningBirds and Rider – Your visit ends this week and there will be less social contact and more opportunity for a bit of alone time.

WaxingClover and Mountain – Trust luck this week to help you through any hurdles that you might find in your path.

Take Away – This week you need to make sure that you are still leaning into others. It’s hard for you to do that when you’re not desperate, but it’s a far better path forward. Make sure that you don’t overdo it with things you want to do and passions you want to explore.

Self Care Saturday Tarot Reading with the Winter Magic Tarot and Yuletide Tales Lenormand

EarthKnight of Pentacles – It’s time to slow down. You can still keep you eye on your goals, but the slower pace is needed. It might feel like stagnancy, but if you’re still moving toward your goals? It’s not.

AirKnight of Cups – You need to make sure you keep in mind what it is you want in your life. Don’t lose sight of what’s truly important to you and will make you happy. Orient yourself towards those things.

WaterEight of Swords Rx – Now that the holiday rush is over, it’s time to remove the bindings on your emotions so that they can flow freely once again. Keep this in mind moving forward through the week and remain conscious of this goal as you move out of emotional stagnation.

FireAce of Wands – Find other passions to pour your excess energy and anxiety into. That excess will taper off over time, but it needs redirecting into new and different interests in the meantime.

WaningBirds and Anchor – Don’t depend on family and friends for the stability you crave. You have to create that for yourself.

WaxingRider and Garden – That doesn’t mean avoid them, though. Enjoy their company and companionship as you visit with them over the next week.

Take Away – It’s time to ease up on that tight grip of control you have had over your emotions and intuition throughout the past seven weeks.  Allow your softer side to stretch from the shell you’ve built around it and begin to find the fresh air and freedom it needs to return happy and healthy once more.
