2019 Chaos Rally #21

In this week’s wellness tarot challenge, good boundaries in place you are more than enough to handle the difficult challenges you face so long as you are willing to act from your truthful heart. Read on for details!


This Week’s Reading


Intro-05-26-19The purpose of this Chaos Rally tarot reading is to take a look at the 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: Four of Pentacles

The challenge this week is to be honest with ourselves and set good, solid boundaries regarding the resources we have available in our current endeavors.

Monday-05-26-19Monday 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 the Four of Pentacles.

This card is all about the management of resources. And our resources can come in many forms. It can be time, energy, and people rather than just material things.

The challenge this week is to be honest with ourselves and set good, solid boundaries regarding the resources we have available in our current endeavors. This isn’t about what we wish we could do or pleasing others. This is about what we actually can do right now in the moment.

The Lesson: Five of Cups

This week’s lesson is that with a bit of creative problem solving we can salvage most situations we find ourselves in.

Grim-05-26-19Grim 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 Five of Cups.

The Five of Cups typically is about grief and loss, but I want you to look closely at the image of this card. The image here shows the kind of every day hassle many of us go through when stuff doesn’t go the way we think it should. It’s not a scene of catastrophic loss in someone’s life. Most importantly, notice how not all of the cups have been tipped over. It’s not the end of the world here.

Soft or non-existent boundaries result in spilled cups during a time when you can least afford them.

Grim-Monday-05-26-19Maintaining your boundaries to preserve your resources is critical whenever you find yourself in a tight spot and stress is climbing. Soft or non-existent boundaries result in spilled cups during a time when you can least afford them.

The Inner Lie: Page of Cups

The universal lie we all tell ourselves is that we are not enough, but you are enough.

Murphy-05-26-19Murphy 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 Page of Cups.

Pages are the children and students of the court while the cups represent the heart space. This means that the Page of Cups is all about exploring, learning, and getting to know your inner child and the fluid waters of your heart space.

The universal lie we all tell ourselves is that we are not enough, but you are enough. You have value and you have something to offer the world.

You are enough, but you won’t be if you constantly allow yourself to be completely drained of your resources.

Murphy-Monday-05-26-19You are enough, but you won’t be if you constantly allow yourself to be completely drained of your resources. This is why setting and holding your boundaries is vital.

The only way to set good boundaries is to truly pay attention to how you are feeling. What is okay? What is not okay? What wipes you out? What energizes you? Find the balance and stand firm.

No matter how bad it gets, remember always that it doesn’t need to be perfect it only needs to be good enough.

Murphy-Grim-05-26-19No matter how bad it gets, remember always that it doesn’t need to be perfect it only needs to be good enough. As long as you are doing your best in the moment, it’s enough.

If you know something must be done or said, make it so.

Toad-05-26-19Wise 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 Eight of Wands.

The Eight of Wands speaks of swiftness – whether to act or to speak. The dragons here in this image do not hesitate to take flight with their wands. Nor should you.

If you know something must be done or said, make it so.

Never hesitate to speak up and state what your boundaries are.

Toad-Monday-05-26-19This is especially true of your boundaries. Never hesitate to speak up and state them.

When faced with a challenging situation, don’t be afraid to face it head on.

Toad-Grim-05-26-19When faced with a challenging situation, don’t be afraid to face it head on. Prolonging the inevitable will only lengthen your suffering. Better to address it quickly and get it over with than to allow it to fester over time.
