Self Care Tarot Week of 8/18/19 -8/24/19


Nine of Swords + Cleanse + Arrow & Target

Whew. Ok, Lets unpack the ALL of this!  Let’s start with the number 9 in Nine of Swords. It’s time to understand the interaction between you and the universe as a continuing process of living, being, and moving. 9 represents universal compassion, tolerance for many differences, and wisdom through experience.  It is important to not get caught up in the big picture, look at what’s closest to you and put your time into a worthy cause. 9 represents an end of a cycle. This is so much a week of tying up loose ends and resting. This week is a yield time, as next week you will find clarity on at least one area of your life. You may in the last few weeks to a couple of months been going through a hard or confusing time. It’s ok not to be ok. If you have been struggling for a while now, this card is a sign to see a professional to help you process if you are able to do so. If not, please reach out to a trusted friend or family member.  9 of Swords says the worry we might be feeling, or the thoughts that spin us round and round, could be some of our own doing.  Feeling guilt, fear, or having doubts can truly overwhelm us and also make us stuck in a cycle we have no idea how to get out of. This is a time to yield.  Stop. Take a step back and try to look at everything around you.  Let’s stop. Listen. Watch. Be present with ourselves. Let’s find compassion for ourselves.  Let’s forgive ourselves.  Let’s honor the child within us and comfort the teenager in us.  Let’s let go of the guilt from mistakes we think* we made because we do not fully know where they lead just yet. This is a week of doing better for ourselves – honoring our past selves with who we are today. We are not who we were months ago, a year ago, five years ago, 20 years ago. We have grown and sometimes something triggers an old feeling and it’s important to be reminded that we are not there anymore. Look in that mirror and hug yourself for all the strength you’ve had to overcome so much. Tell yourself, I’m proud of you. No, Seriously, take a moment and do it now…. and although it may feel silly, just take one week and try it.  Every day, look in the mirror and say to yourself “I’m proud of you for______” and fill in the blank daily. I’m gonna do it and see what happens.

Cleanse comes to us and says “You will finally begin to feel clear headed and at peace with stillness” Remove stuck energy by being with yourself in the stillness. This would be a great week to organize, clean, and clear your space and your time. Free yourself from the things that no longer bring you joy. Free your time up to get some much needed rest.

Towards the end of the week and into next week… It’s time to focus your arrow on your target. Really be willing to get to the heart of the matter.  Focus on one single goal -prepare carefully and take action on it.

Have a good week!  – Lisa
