2019 Chaos Rally #04

The challenge for this coming week is to focus on reducing becoming overwhelmed and overburdened. In the process of working on this, we are to learn how to pay attention to the details of our overall well-being and what we’re doing. Read on for all the details!


This Coming Week’s Reading


Intro-1-25-19The purpose of this Chaos Rally tarot reading is to take a look at the coming week and see in what way we can challenge ourselves to do better in regards to our overall wellness. I ask you to approach this as a fun brainstorming session of possibilities rather than me prescribing a course of action to you.

And again, in terms of wellness I want to point out that this applies to the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of the self. All four of these comprise the total sense of being and need to be taken care of in order to be well. As always, and I cannot stress this enough, be sure to speak to the appropriate professional before making changes to your care plan. This is especially true if my reading for some reason inspires a change in diet, exercise, supplements, or medications, or even raises a concern regarding to your health.

I’m not a specialist in any of these fields. My goal is to look at how to manage wellness in the presence and with the cooperation of your professional care team. Please keep this in mind when going over this reading.

The Challenge: Ten of Wands

It’s critical to pay attention to the early signs of weakening and get the rest we need.

And you know what? If that happens to be the only thing you got done for that day, you know you got the most important thing out of the way. That’s a total win.

All you need to do is trust in yourself.
