In this coming week’s wellness tarot challenge, you are called upon to trust in your soul as it speaks to you through your heart space. Read on for details!
This Coming Week’s Reading
The 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: Knight of Cups
Explore and express how you truly feel.
This coming week, you are being called upon to explore and express how you truly feel. Take the time to really feel what it is you’re feeling. Allow yourself the time to sit with it. By accurately naming what emotion you’re experiencing, you give yourself the ability to do something about it.
The Lesson: Seven of Wands
Be mindful of your defensiveness in response to the world around you.
The lesson here is to be mindful of your defensiveness in response to the world around you. You don’t need to engage in every fight you feel invited to participate in.
Most of the time, defensiveness is a reactive response to the fear of being wrong. Meaning it’s an ego response, so take a moment to step back and pause before choosing how to respond.
By setting good boundaries and communicating them clearly, you are better able to act rather than react to the situations you face.
Take control and preserve boundaries by consciously acknowledging your feelings and those of others.
Be aware of and honest about what you’re feeling. When you forget this step, emotions will run away with you and drive your behavior. Remember that you aren’t the only one with emotions. Those you interact with can just as easily be driven by how they feel. Take control and preserve boundaries by consciously acknowledging your feelings and those of others. Validation goes along way towards peace.
The Inner Lie: Eight of Swords
Overcome the false belief that you are stuck or trapped in whatever situation you’re struggling with.
You are being asked to overcome the false belief that you are stuck or trapped in whatever situation you’re struggling with.
To clear confusion or uncover solutions, take the time to sit down and list out all the possibilities stemming from this. Identify which ones are most likely to happen. Out of those that are most likely, determine which ones are the most logical. Then, decide which one is most desired and practical to act upon. From there you can construct a course of action.
Freedom comes when you are honest during the process of getting to know your true, authentic self.
Freedom comes when you are honest during the process of getting to know your true, authentic self. Seriously take the time to sit with your feelings to name and claim them. Once you know how it is you truly feel, you can then decide what needs to be done about those emotions.
Determine ahead of time the best way to respond to boundary violations.
Take the time to identify what is and isn’t okay for you by acknowledging how you feel regarding certain behaviors, people, situations, or environment. Determine ahead of time the best way to respond to boundary violations.
Remember, the purpose of boundaries is not to control the behaviors of others, but rather it’s the control of your responses to that behavior, situation, or environment.
When you know what your boundaries are, you have a clear course of action in your life.
[insert Murphy, Monday, and Grim Card Combo summary]
Through self validation of your feelings and setting boundaries around them, a great deal of confusion is cleared up. Doing this gives you a better idea of what you need to do to free yourself from entanglements.
The Wisdom: Ten of Swords
Remember nothing lasts forever in your life.
The wisdom to keep in mind here is to remember nothing lasts forever in your life. Like any storm in nature, this too shall pass. The hardships experienced teach you how to better appreciate the good times when they come. Enjoy the things worth enjoying and endure the challenges as they come.
Pay attention to how you’re feeling before and after around individuals, within a situation, and in an environment.
Pay attention to how you’re feeling before and after around individuals, within a situation, and in an environment. Are you feeling dread or drained? Are you feeling energized or uplifted? Allow your feelings to guide you in how to address, mitigate, or even eliminate what is undesired in your life.
Build those boundaries in order to aid you in your struggles.
After all, you don’t stand exposed outside in a storm. You find shelter. Do the same with the various elements in your life. Build those boundaries in order to aid you in your struggles.
View the struggles you experience as an opportunity for growth.
View the struggles you experience as an opportunity for growth. Sometimes the social storms can blindside you as you find yourself unprepared to cope. This is a signal towards an area in your life that needs developing.
Your soul speaks to you through your heart space. Trust in it.
The key to all of this is being aware of your feelings and remaining honest with yourself about them. It keeps your boundaries solid and reduces confusion, while sheltering you from the storms in your life. The reason for this is that your soul speaks to you through your heart space. Trust in it.
