2019 Chaos Rally #33

In this coming week’s wellness tarot challenge, life is all about on-going personal development, embrace it with intention of moving you towards overall well-being. 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.

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

The Challenge: Queen of Coins

The challenge this coming week is to preserve, protect, and nurture the new thing you want coming into your life.

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 Queen of Coins.

Look at how this queen dragon protects and nurtures this egg. This egg represents the birth of something new. It could be a new project, a new habit, a new lifestyle – anything. Something new to you that you want and it requires your time, attention, and care.

The challenge this coming week is to preserve, protect, and nurture this new thing coming into your life.

The Lesson: Strength

The lesson to be learned here is, when things don’t appear to be compatible seek the most compassionate and empathetic path.

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 Strength.

Okay, so we have some interesting visual symbolism going on here with this card. On one side we have the dragon, representing the higher mind and ancient wisdom. On the other side we have the lion, representing the raw power of the animal brain. In between these two we have the Caduceus Staff, which actually represents negotiation – not medicine or healing.

So what does this mean? In terms of alchemy, it means we can bring to things that don’t mix and find a way to mix them. In chemistry, we call this emulsion. It’s used in cooking often. It’s how we make Angel Food Cake, whipped topping, salad dressings, and so on.

We can do the same thing in every day life. We can bring the higher mind and animal brain closer together. We can bring two people who are in disagreement closer to common ground. We do this not by force, but with compassion and gentleness.

The lesson to be learned here is, when things don’t appear to be compatible seek the most compassionate and empathetic path. It may not go the way you expect, but you may at least avoid a war.

Bringing something new into your life, whatever it may be, is going to require a lot of compassion and diplomacy.

Grim-Monday-08-16-19Bringing something new into your life, whatever it may be, is going to require a lot of compassion and diplomacy.

Not only do you need to be gentle with yourself regarding the changes you are making, but you also need to be aware of the ripples you are creating with those around you. Boundaries will need to be set on all sides. Not just for you, but for them as well.

The Inner Lie: Ace of Cups

There isn’t a single human being on this planet that doesn’t thrive from true, meaningful connection. Go create it.

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 Cups.

What I find really interesting about this depiction of this card is how frozen and icy the image appears to be. The Ace of Cups is the gift of the heart, yet here we’re seeing a dragon in what looks to be in an arctic ocean landscape of some kind.

Your heart space is not some frozen wasteland. It still beats, and feels, and longs to connect with others. It still desires to express what’s within. Allow yourself to have that. This is the false belief to overcome. There isn’t a single human being on this planet that doesn’t thrive from true, meaningful connection. Go create it.

Remember to open your heart space as you welcome the new into your life.

Murphy-Monday-08-16-19Remember to open your heart space as you welcome the new into your life. You need to make room and hold space for it if you wish for it to stay in your life.

Think of trying to bring in a sofa into an already packed room. It’s not going to work out so well like that. Your heart space, however, has this amazing capacity to grow and accommodate. You need to choose for that to happen – either consciously or subconsciously.

Thawing out and navigating your heart space will require you to negotiate between your higher self and animal brain.

Murphy-Grim-08-16-19Take the time to thaw out and navigate through those waters of your heart space. This thawing out process will require you to negotiate between your higher self and animal brain.

Fear, shame, and even anger are master emotions that do not manifest from the higher self. They come from the animal brain as mechanisms of self preservation. Ask yourself what exactly are you trying to protect yourself from. It serves a valid purpose if it’s against death or true harm. It hinders your personal growth otherwise.

Don’t turn away from exploring what you find within yourself.

Hold space for both yourself and others. Allow yourself that room to flex and grow. You won’t be able to do that if you remain frozen.

Murphy-Grim-Monday-08-16-19The most important thing to keep in mind here is negotiating that heart space within you and having compassion as you welcome the new in your life.

Hold space for both yourself and others. Allow yourself that room to flex and grow. You won’t be able to do that if you remain frozen.

The Wisdom: Three of Cups

The wisdom for this coming week is to make sure you spend time and enjoy the company of those near and dear to you.

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 Three of Cups.

We have three dragons here enjoying each others company. There’s nothing more simple and straight forward than this. Cherish the time spent with those you care about.

The wisdom for this coming week is to make sure you spend time and enjoy the company of those near and dear to you.

Don’t brush aside and forget about your loved ones as you bring the new into your life.

Toad-Monday-08-16-19Don’t brush aside and forget about your loved ones as you bring the new into your life. You don’t want to be alienating those near and dear to you. No one likes to feel like they’ve been put to the back burner. People like to feel included and involved. They want to support you.

To truly be able to enjoy the time you have with your loved ones, you will need to create and hold space for them.

Toad-Grim-08-16-19To truly be able to enjoy the time you have with your loved ones, you will need to create and hold space for them. This means having empathy and compassion for them while creating the social emulsion. Our social time should never involve enmeshment. Each person needs to retain their authentic selves. You need to retain your authentic self. This is the purpose of boundaries.

People can never really connect with you if you don’t permit yourself to truly express the real you.

Toad-Murphy-08-16-19You’ll experience the greatest enjoyment with those nearest and dearest to you when you are willing to thaw out your heart space and allow them to enter. People can never really connect with you if you don’t permit yourself to truly express the real you.

Conclusion

Life is all about on-going personal development, embrace it with intention of moving you towards overall well-being.

All-08-16-19Something new is coming into your life, but you need to be willing to make room for it in your heart and hold space for it if you wish it to last while also continuing to honor the relationships you hold dear.

Life is all about on-going personal development, embrace it with intention of moving you towards overall well-being.
