❤️ 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?

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.


Moving Forward Tarot Reading

Tarot Arte de Luna Rivas

Card to represent current state.

Ocho de Bastos – You are feeling like your momentum has been disrupted and that you have dropped the ball on things you wanted to get done. You worry about “falling behind” because of this, which you perceive as being even worse than stalling out for a time.

What I am moving towards.

Siete de Oros – Slow progress is coming. The realization that you have gotten more done than you realized will be upon you if you are open to seeing it. You aren’t stalling out or backsliding and losing ground… you’re just moving forward more slowly than you realize or are used to.

Lesson to be learned.

Cuatro de Copas – Pick and choose your battles. It’s okay for certain projects and things that need done to get set on the back burner so that you can train your attention on what is right before you. That doesn’t mean you’re abandoning those other projects, only that other concerns and priorities need to come first.

How the lesson will help me grow.

La Muerte – Slowly, as seen in the Siete de Oros above. This lesson is a study in slow and gradual change, and how it is okay to take things slow instead of rushing in and pushing yourself too hard.

How the lesson could hinder me.

As de Bastos – It will force you to “slow your roll” on new projects and inspirations. There’s only so much time in a day, only so many things you can take on at a time. Sometimes you have to accept that you just can’t do all the stuff you want to right away… or, in some cases, at all.

Final outcome.

El Carro – Determination will carry you through, no matter the speed you are moving at. Just keep moving.
