This is a week to take care of ourselves and to find support from those that we love. We usher it in with the Knight of Water. This card has a few meanings: For some of us, it may be about falling in love and potential proposals. For most of us, though, it is about balancing our emotions. It feels as though many of us have been on a bit of an emotional roller coaster ride, and while we’ve been able to connect with some important insights through the process, we now need to focus on equilibrium. The time to act impulsively is over; remember that we can only choose how we will respond in any given situation. Pause and reflect before reacting. In a more general sense, take the time to connect in with your emotional state at the moment and nurture yourself in some way that can help to ground you and enable you to feel supported.
Help with this balancing is shown to us through the Ten of Earth card. The support and love that we need and are looking for right now is actually all around us. Connect with your family. This may be your nuclear family or it may be your family of choice, which includes your circle of friends. The important point to remember is that you are loved. Enjoy the little things in life and know that there is magic all around you. No matter how things look on the outside or how you feel on the inside, there is always support available to you. If feels like this is a time for some of us as well to evaluate our support system. Are the people that you’ve chosen to be around you the ones that you really can rely on? When you reach out a hand for help, who are the people that grab it? Reflect so that you may connect with your true support system, and then fall into it knowing that you are honored and adored.
Things have been a little up and down, but through reflecting and creating a healthy network around us, we create meaningful shift in our lives. The Nine of Fire comes to us for the week’s end, and it is one of my favorite cards in this deck. It is all about owning your power and firmly standing your ground. Trust yourself. Knowing what and who is good for you is an act of empowerment and the emotional and metaphorical house cleaning that has been going on over the last several weeks is actually allowing you to more completely trust and honor yourself. Some people and situations were meant to come and go, and the lessons gleaned from them were intended to come through in a short period of time. While releasing them may be difficult or painful, doing so will allow you to more fully know yourself. It is an act of self-love to create healthy boundaries and mutually empowering relationships. Now is the time to trust in what you are creating.
