2019 Chaos Rally #32

In this coming week’s wellness tarot challenge, we look at facing the truth and taking responsibility for it to nurture the things we wish to keep in our lives. Read on for details!


This Coming Week’s Reading


Intro-08-16-19The 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: Knight of Swords

The challenge for this coming week is to develop a clear understanding of the reasons behind your actions so that you are behaving with the intention you desire.

Monday-08-16-19Monday 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 Knight of Swords.

The Knights within the tarot represent the emerging masculine and feminine energies within us. What do we want or need to do and what do we feel or receiving at this time? It really is a delicate balance. Swords represent the power of the mind and intellect.

Look at the image here on this card. There is a woman mounted on a powerful dragon charging after something. The question here is she doing so with clear intent or is she doing so blindly? Does she have a plan? Does she know what’s she going to do once she gets there?

The challenge for this coming week is to develop a clear understanding of the reasons behind your actions so that you are behaving with the intention you desire.

The Lesson: Queen of Pentacles

The lesson to keep in mind for this coming week is to attend to and nurture whatever it is that is important to you so that it doesn’t wither away.

Grim-08-16-19Grim 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 Queen of Pentacles.

Queens represent the mature feminine energy within us. This is the intuitive, receptive, expressive, creative, and nurturing side that we all possess. Pentacles represent the physical realm, such as our bodies, the earth, our resources, and our skills.

What we nurture and foster in our lives, grows. What we ignore withers and dies. This is true of our relationships, our bodies, our gardens, our skills – what have you. It’s true when they say if you don’t use it, you lose it. So whatever is important to you, take good care of it.

Unintentional damage can take a lifetime to heal and you may find yourself losing people if you aren’t careful as a result.

Grim-Monday-08-16-19Be intentional and very clear with yourself in what’s truly important to you and how you wish to nurture and attend to these things.

Particularly with relationships. Hearts and souls are fragile despite their exterior appearances. Unintentional damage can take a lifetime to heal and you may find yourself losing people if you aren’t careful as a result.

The Inner Lie: Ace of Swords

The inner lie to overcome here is that you are more than capable of figuring things out and resolving the issues and problems you face.

Murphy-08-16-19Murphy 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 Ace of Swords.

This card represents the birthplace of ideas and exploration of the truth and the vitality that comes from all that. It truly is the gift of the mind.

The inner lie to overcome here is that you are more than capable of figuring things out and resolving the issues and problems you face.

As long as you continue to remain in denial of what’s actually going on and your part in all that, you will not make meaningful progress.

Murphy-Monday-08-16-19The first step is solving any issue is facing and accepting the truth head on. As long as you continue to remain in denial of what’s actually going on and your part in all that, you will not make meaningful progress. You will need to take responsibility for how your action, or inaction, always plays a direct role in your life.

Allow the truth to guide you as to who and what requires nurturing when and how.

Murphy-Grim-08-16-19Allow the truth to guide you as to who and what requires nurturing when and how.

When nurturing others it helps to remember that this is a more flexible and fluid process than replacing parts on a car. Replacing parts on a car often means you have the exact part or not at all. Exchanging energy (emotions) with someone doesn’t require that level of precision. Meeting an emotional need in someone more often than not can be done in a variety of ways if you are willing to hear the truth behind their words.

It’s critical to keep in mind here that absolute honesty with yourself regarding your intentions is what drives your behavior as you attend to the things you wish to keep in your life.

Murphy-Grim-Monday-08-16-19It’s critical to keep in mind here that absolute honesty with yourself regarding your intentions is what drives your behavior as you attend to the things you wish to keep in your life. Your true intentions, the ones you harbor and cycle within the programing of your subconscious, is the energy you release into the universe. And it’s these intentions that are read and responded to through your behavior. So make sure your true intentions and your actions are in alignment in order to get where you desire to be.

The Wisdom: Nine of Cups

The wisdom here is to be careful not to fall into the trap of “I will be happy when…” and instead find happiness in the present with the understanding that there is more to come.

Toad-08-16-19Wise 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 Nine of Cups.

This card represents happiness with the vague sense that there is still more available. See how the woman on the card has all these cups, but is still appearing to be asking the dragon for something?

The wisdom here is to be careful not to fall into the trap of “I will be happy when…” and instead find happiness in the present with the understanding that there is more to come.

Remember to take the time to enjoy the process of the journey.

Toad-Monday-08-16-19It’s too easy to get caught up in the chase when we are striving to reach our goals. Remember to take the time to enjoy the process of the journey. None of us lives forever.

Happiness is found through nurturing both ourselves and those that are important to us.

Toad-Grim-08-16-19Happiness is found through nurturing both ourselves and those that are important to us. This forms the trusted connections that have value in our lives.

Until you are truly honest about the life you are living, and the role you are playing in that, versus the life you want you will not be able to find the true happiness you desire.

Toad-Murphy-08-16-19Until you are truly honest about the life you are living, and the role you are playing in that, versus the life you want you will not be able to find the true happiness you desire.

Progression does not come from denial of the truth.

Conclusion

Your happiness doesn’t need to be some far off goal to be obtained.

All-08-16-19When you are willing to face the truth in your life, take responsibility for it, and start aligning your intentions towards what it is you truly desire to nurture, you will find that your world becomes more fulfilling and satisfying in the present.

Your happiness doesn’t need to be some far off goal to be obtained. It can be experienced right now if you allow it.
