New week, new cards! I’m shaking things up a little this week for the weekly reading, again. I’m really trying to find a layout that I like that really hits the points I want to focus on for the week. This week I’m looking at the energy/theme, action to take, possible struggle, and advice for the week.
The decks being use this week are Cosmos Tarot and Oracle (just the Major Arcana) and Spirit Speak tarot.
Theme this week // The Star
I’ll admit, I was pretty happy to see this gem of a card show up. The Star card has been following me around since early last week when I started working on some art therapy and birthed the beginning of my second oracle deck… the Gemini Deck! For me, this card means… create… inspire… send out my wishes and hopes into the stars. Not to mention, this specific card is assigned a constellation… Gemini! Coincidence? I think not!
This card is for you this week! Keep your dreams and goals alive and don’t lose hope, don’t feel forgotten, and don’t feel left out. The Universe is listening and wants you to have patience, it’s working some magic so don’t let your dream fizzle out. So often we don’t think we are moving forward and instead we are moving backwards… it’s not true. Our life is a spiral, we may reach a place where we have been before but we are indeed a little different. We have learned some new skills and have grown in some way. Life is a lot like the Wheel of Fortune… sometimes we are on top, sometimes we are on the bottom. Either way, our turn will come up again and again, we just need patience!
Action to take // 5 of Wands
Persistence is key! While this card is often seen as a moment of conflict…. I see practice and finding beauty within the chaos. Try to look past the ugliness popping up in your week, look for the hidden gems under the dust. With practice and persistence, you will make it through the week just fine. Just like the person in this card, they are annoyed but I can see the determination in their face, they are trying hard to not crack a smile. This reminds me that sometimes in life, we need to laugh! We need to laugh at what is going on and sometimes at ourselves. Meet chaos at the door and smile.
Possible struggle // The Tower
Ouch! Thanks tarot! The Tower may shake up your week and shake it up good! Instead of seeing this as a struggle, why not work with this blasted energy?! Use the energy of the Tower to your advantage and allow it to “clean house”. Release what you want to release, for everything else… hold on tight! If things do get pulled from under your feet, dust yourself off and get back to the grind. Don’t let the Tower win and pull you down with it… whatever the Tower tears down, take it as a sign that it wasn’t serving you anymore anyways. Poof, it’s gone!
Advice this week // 8 of Cups
The 8 of Cups is urging you to withdraw yourself from any situation that does not align up with you on an emotional level… it’s all about leading with your heart and moving yourself to a place that fills you up the most. In this card, we see someone leaving the cups behind and moving to where the cactus stands. They are leaving behind what didn’t serve them in search of what will. I always call this the “grass is always greener” card… this time, it’s about seeking out something more. Something that you know will better suit you.
I’m feeling this card big time and it’s only Monday! This morning I woke up and decided that I’m tired of the “same shit, different day” attitude… so, I’m changing it. I’m creating a new routine for myself, moving out of the rut I’ve been in. I’m always dreaming about the future, catching myself saying “… in a couple years I can do (this or that)”. Something has to change. I need to live in the NOW and focus on the PRESENT. So the 8 of Cups for me is about shaking things up and creating my own vision to enjoy NOW! I’ve already started by changing up my environment in the house. I started to purge, deep clean, and move around the furniture so that I feel a better flow and comfort in my house.
I hope you all have a great week!
