I’m seeing a lot of confusion over your own feelings and motivations in this weekly flow. If last week was fogged up windows, this week is fogged up mirrors. Eh, what are you gonna do? At the very least, knowing what you’ve got going down is helpful.
Noticing the general mix for the week, 3 Swords, 2 Cups, and 2 Majors—and some of them not exactly comfortable cards at that—I’m expecting some emotional (Cups) rawness (Swords) at least and dealing with situations that are personally significant (Majors). The advice and affirmations suggest really going the extra mile to take care of yourself physically as being a helpful measure in holding up. I’d stay on that. All told though, whatever is murky and confusing throughout the week (with 5 of the 7 being reversed), you’ll understand by Sunday. So hang in there!
Monday, Others – Seven of Cups Reversed: This card in the position of others suggests a misunderstanding of who someone is, or perhaps a very incomplete conclusion based on limited (and misleading) information. I’d suggest not acting on hints about other people today because there’s a better-than-fair chance your info is off, incomplete or otherwise misrepresented. Stand back and wait until you have confirmation.
Tuesday, Crowning Influences – Seven of Swords: Who is flying under the radar, sneaking around and not telling the whole story? This is the deciding factor, what’s putting the icing on the cake today. Verify. Even if it’s what you’re telling yourself, verify today.
Wednesday, Underlying Influences – Nine of Swords Reversed: Denied worries or justifications you don’t really believe are clouding thinking. Come to terms with any guilt or fears you’ve been packing away in the back of the closet because they do influence you in ways you may not imagine.
Thursday, Finances: Queen of Swords Reversed: Is there a need for economizing that’s been brushed aside? The reversed Queen of Swords could point to a logical cut that has not been made. I’m not thinking painful so much as rational, reasonable, a good idea.
Friday, Situation: Chariot Reversed: Focus is off. Progress doesn’t get made when you’re running the wrong way, no matter how much you feel compelled to do so. You can counter this with the very simple question, “What do I hope to accomplish?” Because if your urges do not match your end-game, best not to act on them.
Saturday, What to take from the Past – Five of Cups Reversed: Remembering what you’ve lost is fine, but don’t dwell or fixate. Also remember the times you’ve come through grief and loss successfully. That counts, you know? That pain didn’t last forever and you’ve come through it. Today, instead of thinking of the “ow,” direct yourself to the healing from the ouch, how you got through and grew.
Sunday, Immediate Future – High Priestess: This is a reassuring card to wrap up the week with. Most of the flow up to this point is confusion, misdirection, self-delusion and out and out denial. Lots not being seen. Ending the week with the High Priestess says you’ll just know what you need to know without reaching for it. Get quiet and let your inspiration arrive. In the position of “Immediate future,” you may not be able to see far out in advance, but you’ll know for sure what the next step is, what to do right now. I’ll take it!
Overview/Advice – Page of Pentacles: Take care of yourself physically! Also take care of practicalities and deal with communications. Do your job, make you phone calls, answer your emails, shop for groceries and get your sleep. When the emotional side and the energetic side of life is not easy to grasp, the practical, everyday side can get neglected in a sense of being overwhelmed. This advice for the week is to keep up with your simple, everyday needs as a way of staying grounded and on task.
Affirmation – Cloak yourself in light. This speaks to protection on several levels. There is the old-fashioned “visualize a protective bubble of light around you” kind, a great habit to cultivate! There is the kind of light that comes from how you act, doing your honest-to-God’s best to being a decent person and living in accord with your moral compass. There is the kind of light that comes from who you surround yourself with, what companions you choose. There is the light that comes from what you fill your head with – your thoughts and energy and vibrations.
A really easy way to turn up your vibration any time you’re feeling low is gratitude shout-outs. It doesn’t have to be written down or even spoken aloud. Just say to yourself, “Right now, I’m grateful for…” and list two or three things, big or small. But let yourself dwell, soak in the feeling of being grateful, of appreciation, of happiness for those gifts. If it’s for someone else in your life, you can also share it. You’d be surprised how much that amplifies the good vibes.
Here’s hoping for a manageable week for you all out there, with plenty of light!
