Weekly Reading: 8.21.22

Ostara Tarot Deck – Molly Applejohn, Eden Cooke, Krista Gibbard & Julia Iredale

1: What will my energy look like this week?

Ace of Swords – You are in a place where things are coming clear and even in the murkiness you are able to separate out the important bits from the distractions. Even if things get challenging this week, try to keep that mental focus to see your way through the problem. Just don’t sacrifice your ethics for the sake of logic.

2: What challenges will I face?

6 of Cups – Memories are likely to surface this week, some of them may trip you up. Whether they are fond or painful, dwelling is not going to bring you the closure or joy you are seeking. Take some time to sort though any lessons you are being reminded of, but then let the memories slip back into your subconscious. Don’t hold on to that which you can no longer influence.

3: How can I overcome these challenges?

The Lovers – This card is widely understood as one signifying romantic, karmic and even soul mate love. However, consider also that this card is about choices. It is about aligning your being with commitments; it is about preparing yourself for a deep relationship. This card is not so much about your relationship with another but your readiness to be in relationship. It is about knowing yourself deeply enough that you can participate in a meaningful way in relationship with another. It is also about making sure you are prepared for decisions that may test this readiness.

When you are faced with memories that test you this week, center and focus on who you know yourself to be, who you have been and how you have grown. Recognize that the past echoing through your memory is just, that, the past. Focus instead on how it has influenced you in this present moment to be ready for relationship.

4: What lesson will I learn this week?

10 of Wands – Tens in the tarot are about completing cycles, so there is likely an ending headed your way. However, the 10 of Wands indicates that the completions I likely the achievement of something that requires a lot of work. There is an element of burden here that you are going to need to unravel. Whether that means delegating or saying “no” to something if for you to determine, but this completion is not a celebratory one. It is a logic puzzle.

5: Advice from Guides

Strength – This card is all about your inner emotional world. Mastery of your emotions does not mean that you do not feel them; it means that you do not let them rule you. This is an invitation to refine your assertive nature, build upon your self-confidence, and know that your inner strength is the strength that truly matters.

6: Shadow Card

8 of Cups – The underlying theme of this week is inner world. Your memories are going to be the focus, coming up without warning potentially. The advice running through this reading and clarified by this final card is that you need to look within to see what it is that your focus should land upon. You need to listen you your own inner strength and your own lessons about how you succeed in relationship. You need to focus on your own wellbeing and your own life lessons. If meditation is your jam, this can be a good tool, but anything that helps you to sort through the noise to identify what is important to you is valuable at this time. The goal is always to move forward, no mater how enticing the past may be.
