Looking at this weekly flow as a whole, it smells very strongly of transition. Hard-to-hold-on-to, slippery and unclear transition. Sorry, I’m not expecting this to be a popular conclusion. But no matter how thick the fog, the sun always comes out sooner or later.
Not shocking, starting out with that Pisces (confusing!) full moon, but I am having a hard time seeing much where this is going other than the constant? Change! The number of inverted cards points to the potential for confusion and delays. Major Arcana cards for Thursday, Friday and Sunday indicate some gravity to what’s up this week. I do find it interesting that the cards from the The Deck of 1000 Spreads are almost all “Influence” cards. That suggests to me that lots of outside factors are in play through the week in terms of what you’re reacting to. However, your reactions always belong to you! Also, if you don’t expect immediate gratification, you’ll be a lot happier because I don’t think many are likely to get it.
Monday, Question – Five of Wands Reversed: Who’s on my side? Am I angry without knowing why? What am I really fighting for? These types of questions, especially acknowledging conflict that is not out in the open, can lead to useful insights today.
Tuesday, Disappointment – Six of Pentacles Reversed: I’m reading this as sadness over a lack of engagement from others, a lack of contribution. There’s almost a loneliness here, like we are NOT all in this together. Bah! For yourself, don’t give with expectations or strings attached because it will backfire. Make sure your offers are honest and upfront, from the heart without ulterior motive. A little detachment can also ease the sting of not being happy with what others put forth. You’re responsible for YOU. That’s more than enough.
Wednesday, Surprise – Three of Cups Reversed: Still a bit of isolation here, like the group is either not on board with plans or only partially supportive. This isn’t getting kicked out of the club entirely, but it’s not being the guest of honor, either. Be sure you allow people space to have their own perspectives and don’t assume you know what everybody else things. If you can avoid being oversensitive, you may learn something from listening to alternative perspectives now.
Thursday, What is Hidden – The World: The weight you carry and the responsibility with which you’ve toted it is not visible to the rest of the world. This isn’t good or bad so much as it just “is.” Efforts are appropriate and effective, but not outwardly obvious.
Friday, Crossing – Judgment: How others see you may be weighing heavily. Or maybe it’s how you see yourself. One of my life guidelines I try very hard to follow is to never behave in private in a way I would not be comfortable with becoming public.
Saturday, Attitudes and Thoughts – Nine of Wands Reversed: This is a very tired day! Feelings of being worn out, unsure of where you’re going and just wanting to “get it over with” are likely. This would be an excellent day for some recreation, down-time or distraction. Ruminating on issues is to be avoided. Let the week sink in without forcing yourself to come up with “conclusions” right now. A little laughter does a world of good today.
Sunday, Hopes and Fears – Death: I’m seeing this as the “it can’t go on the way it has been” declaration. Both hope and fear something serious is going to completely and utterly change. This is one way to end a “transitional” week for sure. Obviously, the Death is not literal here, but a belief or perception could easily just slip right out of your hands today.
Overview/Advice – Page of Cups Reversed: Don’t let yourself become too emotionally overwrought. Talk to friends, journal, meditate, take a nap (my favorite!), just do whatever it is that you “do” in order to manage emotional demands. I think there will be plenty this week and they need to be looked after.
Affirmation – Decide. One potential benefit of having outside input withdrawn is clarity. A times, we lose focus on what stuff is really ours and what comes from outside us. Sometimes people ask me, “What do my guides want me to do?” as if there was one right answer to how to live that is supported by Spirit and infinite numbers of wrong answers. Your free will matters, not just to you but also to your spiritual support team. They will support your growth in whatever way you find it, but the route, the means, the easy or hard part? Well, that’s up to you. If you don’t learn a lesson one way, you’ll learn it another. Once you’ve made a clear decision about what it is you want in your life, however, and put that clear decision out there to the Universe, you’ll often find the support you need to accomplish it serendipitously show up. So this week, don’t obsess over who approves of your life and who doesn’t. Who cares?! Instead, use this week to obtain greater clarity about what you really want it in your life. Times of transition are tough, but they also offer great opportunity. You’d be silly to pass that up.
This week has the feel of fogged up windows to me. Just because you cannot see what’s on the other side of the glass doesn’t mean it’s not there. Soon enough the sun will come out and the fog will lift. In the meantime, just keep driving—carefully, that is!
Do you feel like you’re looking through foggy windows?
