Weekend at a glance. 12/14/18 – 12/16/18
The weekend doesn’t appear to be easy, but it does look expansive. This tarot sequence might pull the breath from your lips because it looks like a bit of a doozy, but on closer inspection it is positive and very healing. Even if emotions run high and you are reeling from an unexpected loss, I believe it will be a catalyst for great change.
Remember, endings clear space for dramatic new beginnings. It’s ok to slow down and take some time for yourself even if you feel the desire to distance yourself as quickly as possible from an unexpected turn of events that rocked your world.
It might not feel good while it is happening but you are intuitive enough to know the right decision has been made. That doesn’t mean you will escape from grieving something you felt was fresh, new, exciting or fun. You might be grieving the loss of a significant relationship or friendship. Friends are great, but sometimes we can be pulled into situations that are toxic. Your boundaries were tested.
Let’s take a closer look at the 5 of Cups.
What has been lost? The Fool.
The great adventure. You might have found this energy to be really exciting. How wonderful is it to be a vagabond, living from moment to moment, not having a care in the world? Is that what you really wanted? To be close to someone who you can’t quite rely on and who isn’t able to plan into the future? Other cards tell me you are a sensitive and intuitive person.
The Fool can be a breath of fresh air, leading us to experience our highest high, but what goes up, must come down. Part of the charm of the Fool is being in the moment. The Fool does not plan ahead, it is this moment that is of concern. There is no worry, there is only freedom, adventure, fun – it’s an expansive and risk-taking type of energy. If you have taken a risk on someone and they let you down, you are still grieving this loss. My sense is they left you feeling “addicted”, whether that means attached to their energy and unable to unplug from it or real addiction in the form of escapism. Healing is needed.
What is waiting to be noticed? 10 of Coins
It’s a blessing to see the 10 of Coins. This tells me no matter what has happened, you have a supportive community who has your back when you are ready to let them in to help you. Your foundation is solid and secure. You are plugged into a network. You don’t have to worry about security, maybe that’s why the vagabond energy of the Fool was so appealing, it was so different from what you already know.
What’s on your mind? Ace of Wands
You are ready for something new. You have an idea you want to move on and you are feeling the impulse to move in an entirely new direction.
What’s in your heart? Queen of Swords
This experience is forcing you to create real boundaries and to get clear on an appropriate path. From this point forward, communication will remain open, you will attract people you can trust, and who value what you have to say and how you say it. You are stronger than you know. It feels good to draw a line in the sand when it comes to your heart and what you love doing. Part of that work is protecting your heart by valuing and loving yourself first.
The King of Cups tells me you are in the presence of a healer, maybe you are the healer. When I clarify, I get the Temperance card which tells me, yes, you are on a path of healing. When you heal yourself you will be able to heal others. Maybe there is someone in your environment who will aid in your recovery. A sympathetic counselor, an energy worker, someone who has a heart-forward communication style. Balance is obviously needed. Get back to the basics of regular sleep, regular meals, and regular exercise. Cut out escapist activities and cut back on people who lead you into escapist activities. Let the healing begin!
The Tower. Complete and total change.
When I expand of the Tower I get the Page of Wands. You are ready to put some distance between yourself and what you are feeling. An impulsive decision might have been the catalyst for the Tower event to occur. You like to be around people who excite you. Even if the foundation feels unstable, you are ready to blaze a new trail. Don’t let people who are not good for you pull you back into the past. Take a risk and move forward.
