1: What will my energy look like this week?
4 of Pentacles – Pentacles are usually abut money, business and material things. The message of the 4 is that you are either spending more than you can afford or that you are holding on to more material than you need to be holding on to. Either way, the energy of the week is about both focusing on material and financial health and finding a balance between when you want and what you need.
2: What challenges will I face?
7 of Swords – All is not as it may seem. Someone (maybe you) is not being as honest as they need to be about how things are going. This is going to present a stumbling block in the week at some point and can lead to longer term issues if not recognized and addressed.
3: How can I overcome these challenges?
9 of Swords – While this card is typically about the things that keep you up at night, there is a time and a place for worry. This process can be a signal that something needs to be taken care of and can be a way of focusing on an issue. Be productive in your worry. Write it out and take a step back from it, looking for solutions to what is coming up for you.
4: What lesson will I learn this week?
8 of Wands – This is a card of craftsmanship and mastery, of being able to do something very well. You will gain some validation that you are in fact in a skilled position and you may also be presented with ways to take your skills to the next level. Seriously consider any opportunities that come your way this week, even if they seem out of left field.
5: Advice from Guides
10 of Swords – And then again, if things crash, take the time you need to sort through the wreckage. This week has a lot of potential for disaster. If it does indeed strike, the advice here is not to battle through but to stay still, feel through the situation and do as much as you can to focus on putting yourself and ahead of other things. In doing so you will be able to emerge with a clearer focus on what needs attending to and can start with a clean slate.
6: Shadow Card
3 of Pentacles – A reminder from the other side: There are people who will gladly be on your team to help you build and re-build as needed. Collaboration may be just what you need to avoid disaster. And if you can’t avoid it, those in your corner are going to be willing to help how they can, you just need to ask.
