I’ve been really grabbing for my Cosmos Tarot & Oracle deck this weekend so I decided to use it for me weekly reading today! I keep both of these decks together in one large deck, it makes for some great readings and I love seeing when an oracle card shows up. A while back, I started a deck study with this deck but only made it several cards in, you can find the master list of the cards here. I would love to pick this study back up but I am so scattered these days so I’m not sure I will be able to stick with it lol! I tend to dive all in then jump right back out, I’m learning that I tend to sway easily and need to pencil things in more and more. We will see, maybe I could dive into a card or two each week! I have some other deck studies I’ve been wanting to do, one was the Slow Holler Tarot that I also started a while back. I started that and abandoned that project after a few cards in. I think I just get so distracted, so easily… on that note, on to this weeks reading!
In a hurry? This week is all about nurturing what we feel is the most important to us, but not letting it out into the world just yet. Also, keep it cool with your actions and words, let things play out and see what happens. We don’t always need to control everything, even if you’re a control freak like I am. Find some time to unwind as the week comes to a close, it’s good medicine for your mind, body, and soul!
The theme of the week is nurture! The card pulled was Fornax (2 of Fire). This card links closely to the 2 of Wands, I still feel it has its own identity. We have a spirit rising high in the sky holding dear to what she treasures. It suggests to me that we need to keep a tight hold on to what we hold important, keep these items, ideas, and things close to us. They are not ready to be sent out into the world just yet… much like the 2 of Wands, it’s about planning and preparing.
Before jumping into the weekly cards, I love how all the cards showed up as courts (minus the theme)! Sometimes court cards come to me as people in our life or hats we need to wear. This week, I’m drawn to the courts being attitudes and “hats” we need to put on to navigate the week.
To kick off the week we are greeted with Pyxis (Page of Fire). This card is kicking off our week and reflects the feeling I got from the theme card, Fornax. Planning and preparing, but I also feel this card is suggesting that we need to let our own personal compass take the lead this week. Don’t be afraid to go where you are being intuitively pulled, let any messages or signs you feel or see lead you. If your finding it difficult to start the week, go within and just listen. When we allow everyone else to tell us what to do and where to go, we often forget to listen to ourselves. We need to pay attention to our own internal needs, so listen up!
Moving to the middle of the week we are greeted by Piscis Austrinus + Volans (Page of Air). This card has such a calm feeling for me, the way the woman is so centered and focused while the fish swim around her. I feel like this is a “fight or flight” message for the midweek, it’s up to us on how we react. You can easily jump to action immediately, or sit back and see what happens. Drawing from the feeling I get from this card, I vote lets not fight this week! Let’s take a backseat and just remain calm and rational, let things flow and let things unravel on their own. Save your energy for what really needs your attention this week. Also, be sure to tap into your heart space before making a decision when it deals with communication, really see how that feels in our core. We need to save our breath and energy for what is more important.
Ending the week and moving into the weekend I pulled Ophiuchus + Serpens (King of Fire). This is the third “fire” card that showed up this week and I feel it! The suit of fire is filled with ambition, creativity, and energy, so we may be feeling a bit on edge this week or we could be feeling the need to create and unleash! I’m feeling that surge of energy and it’s only Monday so far, big time! The end of the week may have us dueling between what we know is right but what we feel is wrong. Don’t push anything that doesn’t feel like it should be pushed, let things just flow. We all know right from wrong, so be smart about your choices and actions as you head into the weekend (AKA don’t go running around naked with snakes like this dude on the card, if you do though, just don’t get arrested at least)! On a side note, we may feel a bit strapped and tied down at the end of the week… use the weekend to untangle and let loose, just be smart! If you’re unable to unwind, try to at least find a moment that you can. This will only help ease some tension you may be feeling.
