2019 Chaos Rally #27

In this coming week’s wellness tarot challenge, we discuss improving happiness by embracing change to better manage our burdens. Read on for details!


This Coming Week’s Reading


Intro-07-05-19The 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: Ten of Wands

The challenge this coming week is the better management of the burdens you deal with from day to day.

Monday-07-05-19Monday 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 Ten of Wands.

In the image of this card we see someone hunched over, carrying a heavy load. There’s no indication of an end to his journey any time soon. Who knows how long he’ll have to walk with this burden. How many of us have had days where we have felt this way?

The challenge this coming week is the better management of the burdens we deal with from day to day. If we can plan ahead better, portion out our tasks, and pace ourselves, perhaps we will feel like this guy less often.

The Lesson: Seven of Disks

The lesson for this coming week is that fully understanding what’s going on and what you have to work with is the first step in getting where you need to be.

Grim-07-05-19Grim 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 Seven of Disks.

This card is primarily about assessment. Know and understand the situation at hand. Know and understand what you have and what you need. Also know all of this versus what you want.

So the lesson here is that fully understanding what’s going on and what you have to work with is the first step in getting where you need to be.

The first principle in managing your burdens is knowing exactly what it is your tasks involve and what you need to complete them.

Grim-Monday-07-05-19The first principle in managing your burdens is knowing exactly what it is your tasks involve and what you need to complete them.

Notice the overburdened individual in the Ten of Wands and how he has his head down and face mostly covered? Now look at the man in the Seven of Disks and how he appears to be very aware of what he’s doing.

We want to be more like the second man. Prepared and aware.

The Inner Lie: Four of Wands

The false belief to overcome is that even if things aren’t ideal, there is always something to find happiness in, even if it’s something small and simple.

Murphy-07-05-19Murphy 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 Four of Wands.

The context in this image is this is the couple that got married in the Lovers card. This doesn’t look exactly ideal, but they intend to make the best of it and find happiness in their lives anyhow.

The truth is happiness isn’t the same thing as excitement but rather closer to an overall sense of contentment. We don’t always need to be chasing excitement. Times of peace and quiet is good too. There is stability in that, which is something we all need.

The false belief to overcome is that even if things aren’t ideal, there is always something to find happiness in, even if it’s something small and simple.

If you don’t properly manage what goes on your plate, you won’t be able to fully enjoy the little things in your life.

Murphy-Monday-07-05-19It’s difficult to find happiness when you find yourself overburdened. This is why it’s so important to carefully manage what goes on your plate. If you don’t you won’t have the time to fully enjoy the little things in your life.

Focus on how you can make the best of what you’ve got rather than focusing on what you lack.

Murphy-Grim-07-05-19By getting better at assessing your situation and resources, you can also develop a greater appreciation of what you have in your life.

Focus on how you can make the best of what you’ve got rather than focusing on what you lack.

Don’t allow yourself to blindly trudge along and miss out on the simple joys that add up in life.

Murphy-Grim-Monday-07-05-19Not everything will go as you expect or want, but if you remain aware of your circumstances and resources you’ll be able to manage your tasks with improved finesse and better results.

Don’t allow yourself to blindly trudge along and miss out on the simple joys that add up in life.

The Wisdom: Death

The wisdom here is that change can be very scary, but sometimes it’s the only way to move forward in our lives.

Toad-07-05-19Wise 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 Death.

This is a disturbing image, yes. The individual in the background is a sacrifice for the creature in the foreground. I’m not entirely certain of the context here, but I believe the creature intends to transform in the process somehow.

The wisdom here is that change can be very scary, but sometimes it’s the only way to move forward in our lives. Sometimes we need to transform in some way in order to make progress.

Improvements can’t be made if you are unwilling to transform your habits.

Toad-Monday-07-05-19It’s important to examine how you do things and be willing to make changes where needed in order to ease your burdens. Improvements can’t be made if you are unwilling to transform your habits.

Arm yourself with solid facts before taking action.

Toad-Grim-07-05-19By assessing your situation and resources in order to fully understand your circumstances, you will be able to make better changes when necessary.

Uninformed changes or adjustments based on misinformation could prove disastrous. Arm yourself with solid facts before taking action.

If you’re not happy right now, you can change that through the small everyday choices you make.

Toad-Murphy-07-05-19If you’re not happy right now, you can change that through the small everyday choices you make.

Yes, happiness is a choice – like gardening. You don’t always get the magnificent harvest each time but, if you don’t put in the work you’re guaranteed not to.

So make the choice to build the garden for happiness to thrive in. Pull the weeds in your life that choke it out and plant the seeds for it to grow. Give it, and yourself, the opportunity to transform your life.

Conclusion

It really is the small things, both positive and negative, that add up in life.

All-07-05-19By embracing change and assessing your circumstances, you’ll be able to control what goes on your plate better and become more available to enjoy the little moments in your life.

It really is the small things, both positive and negative, that add up in life. Don’t allow them to sneak up on you or run away from you. Remember, it’s up to you to manage them or they will take control of your life.
