2019 Chaos Rally #8

The wellness challenge for this coming week is to moderate our resources by integrating changes into our daily habits to overcome a poverty mindset with an open heart. Read on for the details!


This Coming Week’s Reading


Intro-2-22-19The 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.

Here is the image of this coming week’s reading.

The Challenge: Temperance

The challenge this coming week is to pay extra attention to how we moderate our resources and make adjustments accordingly.

Monday-2-22-19Monday Button’s position represents the challenge you need to be working on at this time. Thus, what you need to be working on right now is found within Temperance.

I’ve always found this card to be interesting. It’s a card of alchemy, balance, and moderation.

There is no better place to see the principles of this card in action than the kitchen and to watch someone make something completely from scratch seemingly from nothing.

It’s truly amazing.

So what exactly are we being challenged with here? This coming week it’s going to be a highly individualized thing.

Each of us needs to be very honest with ourselves as we look at this card about where in our lives we need to bring moderation and balance in. Where do we feel like we don’t have enough resource of some kind because our lives seem to have high demand for it?

It could be our time in a particular area. It could be money. It could be supplies, like food or clothes. It could be medication. It could be any number of things that we use on a regular basis.

I know for me looking at this card that it’s my money right now. I need to bring that back into balance and into a more moderate spending pattern.

So this coming week, the challenge is to pay extra attention to how we moderate our resources and make adjustments accordingly.

The Lesson: The World

The lesson we need to learn this coming week is whatever changes we make need to be integrated into our daily habits so that they become permanent changes.

Grim-2-22-19Grim Lee’s position represents what you need to be learning while working on your challenge. Therefore, your lesson at this time is found within the World.

As interesting as it was to get Temperance for the challenge card, it’s curious to get the World card as the lesson here since this card is about completion, wholeness, and integration.

What exactly are we learning here through practice with the challenge this coming week?

I think the key here is integration. The changes we make need to be integrated into our daily habits so that they become permanent changes. This is the lesson we need to learn.

When we do things that make us feel more whole, we are better motivated to continue doing whatever it is.

Grim-Monday-2-22-19And the reason this is important is what we’re trying to change is how we moderate something in our lives.

We want this change to last more than just a few days. Ideally, we want this to be a lifetime adjustment.

So whatever shifts we make need to be the kind that fit into our lifestyles. We’re not looking for upheavals here, but rather ways to make ourselves feel more complete.

When we do things that make us feel more whole, we are better motivated to continue doing whatever it is. So look for the path that grants you wholeness.

The Inner Lie: Five of Pentacles

Instead of focusing on all the bad, try focusing on gratitude and working with what you do have.

Murphy-2-22-19Murphy Law’s position represents the false belief you need to overcome while working on your challenge. The inner lie at this time is revealed within the Five of Pentacles.

Given everything we’ve discussed thus far, seeing the poverty card here as the false belief makes a lot of sense.

You are enough. You have enough. Instead of focusing on all the bad, try focusing on gratitude and working with what you do have. You’ll be surprised with how much a little bit can go a long way.

Don’t allow a poverty mindset stand in the way of your success. Instead allow it to innovate you forward.

Murphy-Monday-2-22-19Remember what I said earlier that the kitchen is the best place to see the principals of Temperance in action because you can watch someone make something from scratch seemingly from nothing? This is alchemy. This is also the innovation of poverty.

No one knows who it was that originally said, “Necessity is the mother of invention,” but it is an English language proverb. And it’s absolutely true.

Same with what Pauline Kael said, “When there’s a will, there’s a way.”

Don’t allow a poverty mindset stand in the way of your success. Instead allow it to innovate you forward.

Whatever it is you’re trying to moderate this week, don’t be afraid to turn to members of your community for help.

Murphy-Grim-2-22-19Another aspect of the Five of Pentacles is the feeling of being abandoned, forgotten, or left out. Meanwhile the World is all about community integration, completeness, and wholeness.

So we have two opposites here. One is the lie while one is the lesson.

Whatever it is you’re trying to moderate this week, don’t be afraid to turn to members of your community for help. This could be family, friends, or an even wider pool of people.

You don’t have to feel isolated as you manage this.

To help you realize that you are enough and have enough, allow yourself to be innovative and integrate yourself within your community.

Murphy-Grim-Monday-2-22-19So this coming week to help you realize that you are enough and have enough, allow yourself to be innovative and integrate yourself within your community.

The Wisdom: [card]

The wisdom for this coming week is to trust your heart and the emotions within.

Toad-2-22-19Wise Toad’s position represents the wisdom to keep in mind as you work on your challenge. The wisdom you need at this time is found within the Queen of Cups.

This persona within the tarot is someone that lives with an open and accepting heart space. The wisdom for this coming week is to trust your heart and the emotions within.

Once you start naming, claiming, and owning your feelings and experiences, you can start bringing about change through your innovations.

Toad-Monday-2-22-19As tempting and easy as it is to silence the heart, you’ll be surprised how balancing it can be to start speaking your truth.

Once you start naming, claiming, and owning your feelings and experiences, you can start bringing about change through your innovations. There is nothing more transformative than the heart itself and the angelic warrior that is Temperance knows this.

Trusting your heart enough to be open and honest with your emotions  and experiences allows you to feel whole and complete in life.

Toad-Grim-2-22-19Trusting your heart enough to be open and honest with your emotions  and experiences allows you to feel whole and complete in life.

When we close off our hearts not only do we poison ourselves with resentment, but we also shut ourselves off from the abundance the universe has to offer us.

Toad-Murphy-2-22-19When we close off our hearts not only do we poison ourselves with resentment, but we also shut ourselves off from the abundance the universe has to offer us.

Conclusion

So to recap the coming week, the challenge is to moderate our resources by integrating changes into our daily habits to overcome a poverty mindset with an open heart.

All-2-22-19So to recap the coming week, the challenge is to moderate our resources by integrating changes into our daily habits to overcome a poverty mindset with an open heart.

When we do this we adopt an attitude of gratitude and invite a greater abundance the universe has to offer into our lives. And the reason for this is because we’re stopping up the leaks in our cups.

What we’re doing here this coming week is looking for the places we have been unknowingly, or even willingly, bleeding ourselves out in little ways and putting an end to that with small lifestyle changes.
