In this coming week’s wellness tarot challenge, we are called upon to strengthen our creative expression and define personal success. 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: Ace of Cups
The challenge for this coming week is to increase your creative expression.
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 Ace of Cups.
The challenge for this coming week is to increase your creative expression. The source of this expression is your emotions, so don’t be afraid to tap into them. Art imitates life and life imitates art. The two are intertwined and what connects them is emotion. So connect with your feelings. Name them, claim them, and sit with them in order to to immerse yourself in the experience of life.
The Lesson: Ten of Pentacles
It’s only through your own dreams and goals that you’ find happiness.
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 Ten of Pentacles.
How do you define success? Are you chasing success as others define it, or are you chasing your own dreams? It’s completely okay for you to want a simplified, unbusy life if that’s what you desire. It’s okay for you to desire something more glamorous. Whatever it is you’re reaching for, just make sure it aligns with your dreams. It’s only through your own dreams and goals that you’ find happiness.
Pay more attention to the opinion and advice from those who are where you want to be than those who aren’t.
While it is important to take feedback into consideration, ultimately your creative expression remains yours. One opinion is just that: one opinion. Don’t let that one voice bring you down. Pay more attention to the opinion and advice from those who are where you want to be than those who aren’t.
The Inner Lie: Knight of Wands
Believe in yourself and have courage in what you’re doing.
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 Knight of Wands.
Believe in yourself and have courage in what you’re doing. Everyone needs to start somewhere. No one begins as a master in anything. There’s always a learning curve and a process to anything. Don’t lose heart just because you stumble at first. Keep at it and keep practicing.
When it comes to creative expression, release the idea that it needs to be perfect.
When it comes to creative expression, release the idea that it needs to be perfect. It doesn’t do anyone any good if it’s never expressed. Someone out there needs exactly what you have to offer, just the way it is.
Release the idea that your success needs to look like anyone else’s success.
Release the idea that your success needs to look like anyone else’s success. If it makes you feel good and accomplished, then this is enough. Your idea of success can also evolve over time as well. Either way, the need to compare yourself to anyone else will only bring misery so spare yourself of that.
Your progress is yours to measure.
Your progress is yours to measure. You determine which direction you need to go with your creativity based upon the goals you have set. The goals you have are based upon the success you desire. No one else gets to decide this for you.
The Wisdom: The Magician
Thoughts are the seeds of all actions and through your actions you have the capacity to manifest the life you wish to create.
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 Magician.
The wisdom to keep in mind here is that thoughts are the seeds of all actions and through your actions you have the capacity to manifest the life you wish to create. You need to only decide what it is you wish to do and then act upon it.
Numbing yourself from your emotions will block you from ease of expression.
Numbing yourself from your emotions will block you from ease of expression. Feel what it is you feel. Name it. Claim it. Sit with it. Then decide upon how you wish to express it and do so.
Take the time to determine for yourself what success looks and feels like for you.
Take the time to determine for yourself what success looks and feels like for you. Clear away the opinions of others on this one since they cannot feel happiness, contentment, or fulfillment on your behalf. You’re not going to experience this for yourself until you truly define it for yourself.
Have the courage to seek out and explore what it is you desire.
Have the courage to seek out and explore what it is you desire. Even if you don’t get it right the first time. Understand and accept that it’s a learning process. It’s all normal. Remember, even in learning how to walk takes awhile and doesn’t happen overnight.
Essentially, creative expression taps into what the job industry calls soft skills.
How do you creatively express yourself? How do you define success in your life? How do you measure your progress? What are your current goals?
Keep in mind that creative expression isn’t restricted to just the fine arts. It can be found within your problem solving skills, speaking skills, people skills, and more. It’s any time you need to think outside the box or use your intuition too. Essentially, creative expression taps into what the job industry calls soft skills. Not many people think about it much, but it remains vital even today.
Even if you’re not in the fine arts industry, seriously consider strengthening your soft skills.
