2020 Chaos Rally #40

In this coming week’s wellness tarot challenge, we are called to take responsibility for ourselves by trusting in our ability to set the boundaries we need to avoid exhaustion while utilizing our energy as we see best. Read on for details!


This Coming Week’s Reading


CR-01-Week-40-2020

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.

CR-02-Week-40-2020

The Challenge: Six of Coins

Assess the energetic balance of your life.

CR-03-Week-40-2020

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 Coins.

This coming week, the challenge is to assess the energetic balance of your life.

Are you operating in the red, and thus feeling exhausted all the time? It means you are in need of better self care – particularly in the way of rest. Are you eating and sleeping well? Are you giving too much of your time and resources? Are you saying yes when you really mean no?

Are you operating in the green, and thus have an over abundance of resources? Feeling restless? Donate your time, energy, and excess. Not even kidding on this one. When you have extra to give, then give it. You have the freedom to set boundaries on how, when, and to whom to give it. You’re not being asked to bleed yourself out into the red.

True wellness is found when your energetic balance is in the black and your scales are not tipped in either direction.

The Lesson: Six of Swords

Learn to trust yourself in the process of the journey.

CR-04-Week-40-2020

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 Six of Swords.

Learn to trust yourself in the process of the journey.

In the image of this card, the woman is alone in her boat in the dark waters of a cavern. The only thing she has to guide her is a single lantern. She has to fully trust in her ability to steer the boat in order to make it through that cavern. There’s no room for second guessing herself or turning back.

Sometimes life is the same way. We just need to commit to the choices we make and see it through to the end.

You’ll know you’ve got it right when you feel the healthiest and most productive.

CR-05-Week-40-2020

Setting boundaries around our energy is a choice we make, and it’s an important one that leaves no room for second guessing. An over abundance of energy isn’t healthy any more than a deficit of energy. Why is this? Both leaves us feeling unproductive, useless, and like we’re not fully contributing to society.

Pay attention to what puts you in the red. Pay attention to what puts you in the green. Set the boundaries you need to set to keep yourself in the black. You’ll know you’ve got it right when you feel the healthiest and most productive.

And yes, it is normal to keep adjusting the scales from time to time just as it is normal to keep adjusting the wheel of a boat.

The Inner Lie: Ten of Swords

Give up the false belief that being productive means working yourself to exhaustion.

CR-06-Week-40-2020

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 Ten of Swords.

Give up the false belief that being productive means working yourself to exhaustion. I don’t know why society has come to believe this, but exhaustion does not produce optimal performance in anything. Ever. Martyr syndrome doesn’t do anyone any favors, least of all you.

Optimal performance is not possible when you are running in the red.

CR-07-Week-40-2020

Any time you find yourself at this level of exhaustion, a re-balance in your life is required. Optimal performance is not possible when you are running in the red. New or firmer boundaries need to be set and better self care for yourself needs to be set in motion.

When you’re this exhausted, chances are you are crashing into the rocks often with your boat.

CR-08-Week-40-2020

When you’re this exhausted, chances are you are crashing into the rocks often with your boat. Either it’s because you’re second guessing yourself or your lantern is dimming. Rest is critical at this point.

Whatever it is that got you to this point, a reset is vital to regain balance before you capsize and sink.

CR-09-Week-40-2020

Whatever it is that got you to this point, a reset is vital to regain balance before you capsize and sink. These three cards suggest a crisis point that without the proper self care, you’ll run yourself into the ground. I’m pretty sure I’ve said this before, but I’ll say it again: self care isn’t about luxuries, it’s about taking proper care of yourself.

The Wisdom: Justice

Take responsibility for yourself.

CR-10-Week-40-2020

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 Justice.

The wisdom here is to take responsibility for yourself. Your actions, your words, and your life. Whatever you have going on or doing, it’s your responsibility to manage it. Do not shift it onto someone else.

State your boundaries clearly and directly. State your needs clearly and directly.

CR-11-Week-40-2020

You are responsible for your energetic balance. Your boundaries are your responsibility to set and manage.

Do not expect or assume others will just know where you are at any given moment. Do not expect others to just know what you need at any given point in time.

State your boundaries clearly and directly. State your needs clearly and directly.

You are responsible for the direction your boat goes.

CR-12-Week-40-2020

You are responsible for the direction your boat goes. Even if someone else dictates to you the direction you take, you ultimately still need to steer it in that direction.

This isn’t to say what this other person is doing isn’t a problem – because it very much is – but what I’m trying to impress upon you is that you always have the power of that steering wheel, even when you can’t see it.

Take your power back. Trust in yourself. Remember always that the choice is yours.

Be responsible and carve out the time to get the rest you need.

CR-13-Week-40-2020

When you become exhausted, choose to rest. Be responsible and carve out the time to get the rest you need. Seriously, there are very few things in this life that require you to kill yourself and none that I can think of that require a slow and agonizing death.

Conclusion

Take responsibility for yourself by trusting in your ability to set the boundaries you need to avoid exhaustion while utilizing your energy as you see best.

CR-14-Week-40-2020

All things in nature require balance, and this includes our energetic resources. Both too much and too little is unhealthy for us. Take responsibility for yourself by trusting in your ability to set the boundaries you need to avoid exhaustion while utilizing your energy as you see best.
