2019 Chaos Rally #28

In this coming week’s wellness tarot challenge, we discuss speaking up about things that are important to us as they arise rather than waiting. Read on for details!


This Coming Week’s Reading


Intro-07-12-19The 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: Eight of Wands

The challenge for this coming week is to speak up about the things that are important to you rather than to wait on them.

Monday-07-12-19Monday 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 Eight of Wands.

Here we have a panda just outside a town hailing someone. It’s clear he has something to say that he feels is important and can’t wait.

The challenge for this coming week is to speak up about the things that are important to you rather than to wait on them.

Sometimes we wait for a variety of reasons and the opportunity slips past and often times it never gets said. Or worse, when we do finally speak up it is received with frustration because it should have been said sooner. So don’t wait. If it means something to you, say it sooner rather than later.

The Lesson: Ten of Swords

The lesson for this week is learning how to let go of whatever it is you need to at this time.

Grim-07-12-19Grim 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 Ten of Swords.

This card represents release. When we let go of the things that weigh us down, exhausts us, or simply no longer serve us, we are set free. See how this panda is free to run for shelter in the storm? It’s because he has let go of the burden that was slowing him down. We can do the same when we need to.

The lesson for this week is learning how to let go of whatever it is we need to at this time.

Put the multitasking aside. Focus on one thing at a time. One step at a time.

Grim-Monday-07-12-19Part of the reason we don’t speak up when we need to is that we are far too often overburdened with other worries and tasks. We try too hard to multitask or even micro-tasking. This is incredibly taxing on the mind and soul. Plus it’s distracting.

Put the multitasking aside. Focus on one thing at a time. One step at a time. It might take a bit of practice, but you’ll be surprised by how much you can get done.

The Inner Lie: Temperance

Creativity isn’t restricted to the arts. It comes alive whenever the gears in your brain starts to whir and spark.

Murphy-07-12-19Murphy 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 Temperance.

This card represents synergy, cooperation, alchemy, and moderation. Here, in this image, the angelic panda is mixing liquids to create an elixir.

You too possess creative energy within you. This is what alchemy means: to create. And it’s expressed in many forms. Maybe you are most creative in how you interact with people. Perhaps it’s found in cooking.

Creativity isn’t restricted to the arts. It comes alive whenever the gears in your brain starts to whir and spark.

Don’t be afraid to be creative in how you deliver your message.

Murphy-Monday-07-12-19Don’t be afraid to be creative in how you deliver your message. It doesn’t do you any good to speak up if it falls upon deaf ears, so be sure to make yourself heard and understood.

Letting go of what weighs you down and exhausts you will give you more energy to work with to be more creative.

Murphy-Grim-07-12-19Letting go of what weighs you down and exhausts you will give you more energy to work with to be more creative.

You can’t work with what you don’t have. Release whatever is burning you up.

Maybe the very things you need to be speaking up about are what’s overtaxing you and you need a little more finesse in getting yourself understood.

Murphy-Grim-Monday-07-12-19Be creative in how you release the burdens that overtax you and in how you express yourself. It’s important to note here that these two things aren’t necessarily exclusive to each other.

Maybe the very things you need to be speaking up about are what’s overtaxing you and you need a little more finesse in getting yourself understood.

The Wisdom: Six of Swords

The wisdom to keep in mind for this coming week is that disappointment is only temporary and we don’t need to face it alone as we move on from it.

Toad-07-12-19Wise 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 Six of Swords.

This card represents traveling, transitions, and disappointment. See how the boatman is helping the mother and child cross the river as she comforts her son?

The wisdom here is that disappointment is only temporary and we don’t need to face it alone as we move on from it.

Don’t be afraid to express your disappointments, but be aware that just because you are upset doesn’t mean they should have said yes at that time.

Toad-Monday-07-12-19Don’t be afraid to express your disappointments, but be aware that just because you are upset doesn’t mean they should have said yes at that time.

Boundaries still need to be honored. You have the right to your feelings and deserve to express them, just as they have the right to preserve their boundaries.

If something or someone continues to disappoint you, rather than trying to force them to change it’s a signal for you to peacefully let them go and move on.

Toad-Grim-07-12-19If something or someone continues to disappoint you, rather than trying to force them to change it’s a signal for you to peacefully let them go and move on.

Don’t bring yourself additional heartache and exhaustion by trying to fight or deny this misalignment.

Find creative ways to move on from disappointment and realign with your sense of purpose whenever you can.

Toad-Murphy-07-12-19Find creative ways to move on from disappointment and realign with your sense of purpose whenever you can. The sooner you can get back on your feet and moving forward, the better you will feel.

Conclusion

Waiting to speak up, let go, or move on will only cause greater pain, hassle, and delays.

All-07-12-19Don’t hesitate to say what needs to be said, especially concerning the things that are overtaxing you and need to let go of or that are disappointing you and need to move on from in your life. Get creative if you need to in order to be heard and understood.

Waiting to speak up, let go, or move on will only cause greater pain, hassle, and delays. It’s better for you to address as it arises.
