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 – Ten of Wands and Parrotfish (Authenticity) – Listen to what you truly need. Knowing yourself and touching in on your true self will help you avoid overburdening yourself with too much as part of the reason this sometimes happens is you take on not just the stuff that resonates with you, but try to take on even more beyond that as well.
Air – Magician and Goat (Grounded) – You have all that you need to keep yourself from falling to the wayside or letting your negative inner dialogue take over. You have what you need to pursue your ideas and aspirations unhindered this week…. IF you remember to stay grounded and on track. Do what needs done to make sure you don’t lose your footing.
Water – Hanged Man atop King of Wands, Owl (Intuition) – Before you try and reign things in, make sure you’re allowing for a different perspective than your immediate reaction. That reaction is not intuition, but rather a defense mechanism that is getting in the way of your growth.
Fire – The World and Wombat (Exploration) – If you want to dive into new ideas, this week is the time time to do a little research and prepare to take that leap. Things are opening up and you have some room to explore and branch out, or start anew in some areas if that’s what you’re into doing. Start gathering information so you’ll be prepared.
Waning – The Forest Path atop Flickering Candle – The time for letting the wind cast you as it may is at an end this week. Whims and recreation, fun times and opportunity to do whatever you wish with your time is coming to a close as you buckle back down and get back to work.
Waxing – Family Quiet Time atop Comfort – Although getting back to work is all well and good, after all responsibility is a big part of this week’s theme, so too will be the connection that you have with those nearest and dearest to you. Make sure to make some time and space to foster those relationships.
Take Away – Don’t allow clutter in your life, your mind, or your responsibilities to the point that you lose track of yourself or the truth of who you are and what you want. Getting back to work is not something that you’re enthusiastic about but you just need to find a balance between work and self care that will actually work for you. Instead of falling back into the same pattern as the last time, look for a new method that will fit better.
