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 – King of Swords – Be decisive and make good decisions concerning your finances this week. Keep your eye on the prize and strategize with a leaning towards stability and security. Don’t act on emotion but think things through instead.
Air – Five of Pentacles – Scarcity issues are going to be a bit of a problem this week. Remember that a great deal of that is “in your head” and not realistic or reality based. The rest of it can be dealt with by following the advice in this reading’s Earth position.
Water – Four of Wands – Savor all the things that make you feel “at home” both in your home and concerning those in your life as well. It’s okay to wallow a bit in that sense of comfort and belonging you get from those people in your life, as well as in the environment you’ve made for yourself.
Fire – Eight of Pentacles – Put your nose to the grindstone this week in preparation for what is soon to come. Time off is coming, and business is going to continue to slow down as summer approaches. You have things you can be doing to make this go more smoothly, so do them.
Waning – Tree and House – Don’t worry so much on how everyone else is doing right now. Focus on yourself instead.
Waxing – Scythe and Child – Nip moments of childishness in the butt this week.
Take Away – Make sure you are making stable and strategic decisions with your money this week and don’t let your inner narrative fool you into panicking about what you -don’t- have right now. Just keep moving forward with your business and work on what needs to be done while leaning into those that give you comfort.
