In this coming week’s wellness tarot challenge, we are called to find serenity through the alignment of the inner child with the adult self. 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: Six of Cups
Reconnect with your inner child.
Monday 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 Six of Cups.
The challenge for this coming week is to reconnect with your inner child.
Think back to when you were a child during the times when you were by yourself and left to your own devices. No relatives, friends, or anyone else were around to influence your thoughts and decisions during these times. This is when you were completely alone as your truest self before the world shaped you.
What did you dream of? What made you smile? What were the things you hoped and wished for? What kinds of things did you plan for your future?
In what ways can you incorporate some of these things back into your life?
The Lesson: The Chariot
In order to make progress in a stagnant goal, you need to learn how to identify what the conflicting motivations are within you and resolve them.
Grim 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 Chariot.
The Chariot represents victory, provided you are able to align the opposing forces that drive the cart in the same direction.
So the lesson here is that when we find ourselves unable to move forward or unable to accomplish a goal, it’s usually because we have conflicting desires, or motivations, getting in the way. In order to make progress, you need to figure out what the conflict is and resolve it.
Sometimes this may even mean discovering that the goal you thought you had, really isn’t the goal. This is okay too.
Sometimes the conflict may reside between your inner child and your adult self.
Sometimes the conflict may reside between your inner child and your adult self. It may be a matter of what you have always wanted to do versus what you think you’re supposed to be doing.
Society shapes us in many ways. The world around us tells us who and what we should be, but all the while the inner child, the core of who we truly are, remains. There comes a point where the adult self and the inner child needs to be brought together reconciled.
The Inner Lie: Death
Change is not the end of the world. Change is the natural cycle of life.
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 Death.
Change is not the end of the world. Change is the natural cycle of life. All things in life have phases and seasons. The purpose of this cycle is transformation and growth.
It is our resistance to this cycle that makes it more difficult than it needs to be.
If you feel like you are unable to fully be your true self right now, then it’s time to do some pruning and weeding to clear out what’s choking these aspects of the self.
The biggest change we all experience is the emergence of the adult from childhood. This doesn’t mean, however, that our child selves are lost. A rose blooms from a rose bud after all. The same is true of you. You bloom from the bud of yourself.
If you don’t feel like you are able to fully be yourself then it means you have allowed weeds to choke out various aspects of the Self. It means that it is time to prune and weed the garden that is you to permit yourself to flourish as you need to.
Change requires an honest assessment and realignment of where you are going, what you are doing, and what you desire.
Change requires an honest assessment and realignment of where you are going, what you are doing, and what you desire. And while this may be the most challenging aspect of it, this is where the real growth and transformation happens.
Here is where we let go of whatever is holding us back or whatever is harming us. Here is where we gain greater clarity of what it is we want in life. And the moment we are able to do these things is the moment we clear the path to shoot forward.
There is a need to bring the inner child and the emerged adult into alignment in order to unleash the real you.
Looking at these three cards together, we see the Six of Cups, representing the inner child, on one side of the Chariot and Death on the other side, calling for transformation.
To me, studying this layout, it’s saying there is a need to bring the inner child and the adult self into alignment in order to unleash the real you. The inner child didn’t die and still needs to be expressed. In merging the two together, the adult self won’t die either and will still find expression.
The Wisdom: Two of Swords
Practice the art of serenity in everything you do.
Wise 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 Two of Swords.
The Two of Swords is about a couple of things, but one of the themes it touches upon is finding peace. Particularly with inner peace.
Inner peace is having the mindfulness to be present in the now, accepting situations for what they are rather than what you’d wish they’d be, and focusing only upon the things which you can control.
So the wisdom for this coming week is to practice the art of serenity in everything you do.
The best gems of your childhood are the core aspects of you that have no external source and will point you towards your sense of purpose and fulfillment.
Yes, your childhood is long gone now but take whatever good from it you can and forgive the rest with as much grace as possible. The best gems from your childhood are the core aspects of you that bring you joy from within. These little gems have no external source and will point you towards your sense of purpose and fulfillment.
Someone who isn’t at war within themselves is at peace.
It should be obvious that someone who isn’t at war within themselves is at peace. Make the effort to assess and align your desires and motivations with your choices and behaviors. The more you are able to do this, the greater peace you will experience.
Clear away from your life whatever robs you of your peace on a consistent basis.
Clear away from your life whatever robs you of your peace on a consistent basis. This could be relationships, jobs, environment, or projects that drain you. Pay special attention for the stuff that is toxic since it has a way of kicking up constant drama. Avoid the things that bring out the toxic in you.
Anything that robs you of your peace is also robbing you of your time, energy, and attention that you could be investing on other things.
The key to finding inner peace is through the alignment of the inner child with the adult self.
The key to finding inner peace is through the alignment of the inner child with the adult self. It doesn’t matter how old you are, there will always be a side of you that needs to dream, hope, wonder, and express joy. There are ways to do all that while still meeting the duties and obligations of adulthood if you are willing to permit yourself to do it.
