Does November feel like it’s going really fast? I feel like the last part of this year is just flying by! This week I’m using the Bonefire Tarot since I just can’t get enough of this deck – I love it! Let’s shuffle and take a look at the energies at play this week, shall we?
Alrighty then, what “fun” cards this week! ? After I pulled the three for the week, I was drawn to taking a peek at the bottom of the deck to see if there was any hidden advice or insight for us, I’m glad I did! the 2 of Coins was hiding and I’ll be talking about how this incorporates into our week!
Beginning of the week // 8 of Cups
We are kicking off the week working with the energy of the 8 of Cups. Any time this card shows up for me, it reminds me of embarking on a journey. Not a huge, life changing journey like the Fool, but more of a “lets see what else is out there” type of feel. We have a stack of 8 cups but one is missing, let’s go find it! What we are currently doing right now may not be working out the way we had hoped it would, so we may be called to move on and leave something behind. Something clearly isn’t working and we can feel it! We need to let it go and find what will work and put our energy towards that!
Middle of the week // 5 of Coins
After leaving the 8 of Cups, we are moving into a feeling of isolation or even a “I’ve been here before” type of energy. When I look at this card in the deck, I don’t get a the typical feeling like I do in say, the RWS – which is normally a feeling of scarcity or poverty… I get a more “solo” feel and a 5 of Cups vibe, it shows we may be feeling a bit sorry for ourselves… perhaps we’re even having buyers remorse! The girl in the card can easily go inside but it seems she has chosen to withdraw herself and stay outside in the snow – the door’s open, so it’s not like she is being locked out of the house or something, I get the feeling that this card suggests that we may be really hard on ourselves, don’t be! We all make mistakes… and mistakes can be fixed.
Before this card was the 8 of Cups and it shows someone moving on… now we find ourselves here, a place that I feel we may sense as very familiar. Trust me when I say that we are growing, despite feeling like we have set ourselves back. We may be in a place that feels very familiar, but we have changed and are not the same person we were when in this position before. Try to use this time to figure things out, journal, and even replay some past events in your mind to see if you may have missed something. There is a lesson hidden in this card for you to figure out!
End of the week // The Tower
Just like that, the Tower makes an appearance to end our week. After some much needed transitions and then feeling like we’ve hit a wall, we are greeted with the Tower. I like to think of the Tower this week as cleaning up some things that we really don’t want to face. It’s a huge broom coming for us and cleaning shit up! It may not be fun, it may be a bit messy, but it will be necessary and you will thank it later. No one really loves to see the Tower show up, especially when it’s on a weekend, right?! Hold on tight and enjoy the ride!
Going with the 2 of Coins that was on the bottom of the deck, this will be our crutch this week – our medicine, our advice to keep us on our feet so that we don’t get swept up when the Tower comes to town! This card urges us to keep in check with how we balance out our life this week. It could be a juggle that is difficult but it’s something we can all handle, despite you having some doubt. We can dwell on any bumps we feel this week or we can learn from them! Keep your priorities in check and don’t weigh yourself down too much in one area of your life – like too much work or too much play. Take on only what you can chew and spit out the rest!
