In this coming week’s wellness tarot challenge, we explore how balancing the heart with the mind opens the path to the life you desire. 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.

The Challenge: King of Swords
Balance the amount of time spent in your head with the time spent in your heart.
This coming week’s challenge is to balance the amount of time spent in your head with the time spent in your heart.
The King of Swords often times indicates emotional numbing in favor for logic and reasoning. While there is a time and place for that, too much of it means disconnecting from those around us. This leaves you or your loved ones feeling misunderstood or even alienated. So make an effort to get back in touch with your heart more often without losing the logical foundation you need.
The Lesson: Nine of Pentacles
Learn to relax more to enjoy the pleasant things in your life.
Learn to relax more to enjoy the pleasant things in your life. This doesn’t necessarily mean fancy stuff or big events either. It could be simply sitting out on your doorstep to watch the sun rise or set with your favorite beverage in hand. Whatever it is that brings you peace and contentment.
It really is the little things in life that builds a rich and colorful world in the heart if you allow it.
Living in our heads all day every day certainly does not bring us peace and contentment. Instead, it closes off our hearts and we end up missing out on the daily little things that could bring us joy if we were willing to take the time to appreciate them. It really is the little things in life that builds a rich and colorful world in the heart if you allow it.
The Inner Lie: The Empress
You were born of love. You ARE love. It’s in your DNA.
Murphy 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 Empress.
You were born of love. You ARE love. It’s in your DNA. It is the creative force flowing through you and all around you. You only need to trust in it and permit it to guide you. It is in this way you take care of yourself and thus others.
Utilize the balance between the heart and mind to design the life you truly desire.
You possess both a mind and a heart intended to be used for the highest good in your life. Yes, the mind is a tool for problem-solving but it’s the heart that generates the energy required to follow it through. Utilize the balance between the heart and mind to design the life you truly desire.
You nurture yourself when you enjoy the little things, which in turn allows you to bring your best self for others.
You nurture yourself when you enjoy the little things, which in turn allows you to bring your best self for others. You simply cannot take care of others if you are not taking care of yourself. And how are you able to find joy in anything if you aren’t slowing down long enough to savor any of it?
When the heart and mind are expressed equally, peace and contentment can be discovered and enjoyed.
When the heart and mind are expressed equally, peace and contentment can be discovered and enjoyed. Many creative endeavors can be explored while nurturing the self and others. In this way life can become more enriching.
The Wisdom: Seven of Swords
Starting asking yourself what are you hiding from and why.
Starting asking yourself what are you hiding from and why. And then get elbows deep into the hard work of facing it. It’s not ever going to get any easier by avoiding it or pretending it doesn’t exist. That’s not how healing, recovery, authenticity, or growth works. If it did, everyone would be crazy successful in their lives and just breeze right on through everything.
Commit yourself to developing solutions and following through on them.
You’re up in your head all that time for a reason. Why is that? What’s eating at you so much that you’re ruminating over it like a hamster on a wheel? What’s the real issue and what can really be done about it?
If the answer is truly nothing, then find something else to do that will better serve you with your time. Otherwise, commit yourself to developing solutions and following through on them.
If you are spending most of your time and energy avoiding something, how then do you have any left for the things that really matter?
If you are spending most of your time and energy avoiding something, how then do you have any left for the things that really matter? There is only so much time in one day and you only have so much energy to spend in a single shot before you need to recharge. Are you spending it in a way that serves your highest good?
One of the biggest benefits of facing and working on the things you tend to avoid, is you gain the ability to truly shape the life you wish to live.
One of the biggest benefits of facing and working on the things you tend to avoid, is you gain the ability to truly shape the life you wish to live.

But facing your shadow and doing that work is the catalyst.
In order to find balance between the mind and heart, you need to face your shadow.
The overall message here with this reading is that in order to find balance between the mind and heart, you need to face your shadow.
