This is your reading for the weekend of June 3 & 4, 2017
This weekend I chose an oracle from the Oracle of Visions (my favorite oracle deck) to set the theme/focus for this general reading and then drew two Tarot cards.
Card 30: Danger, Fear – The theme/focus of the Reading
This card is reminiscent of Little Red Riding Hood and it’s message is danger can’t always be seen and expected. The wolf in the tale is cunning and conniving, so try to be wary of people who may attempt to trick you or deceive you. Use your intuition and instincts to seek them out to protect yourself. In addition, fear can stifle us mentally. Try not to let your fears overpower clear thinking.
Ten of Wands and Ace of Swords
Ten of Wands
The Ten of Wands represent the burdens of too many responsibilities or taking on too much and it’s weighing you down just like the Ten Wands are doing to man in the card. Over the weekend, you need to take this time to be selfish and you should learn to say ‘no’. You may want to also take some time to unplug even if it’s just for a few minutes.
Ace of Swords
The Aces represent the true essence of the suit as well as new beginnings and Swords are associated with the mind/intellect. This weekend you may find yourself having a moment of clarity. This clarity may involve a new direction in your life, or possibly to cut through any obstacles that have been holding you back. Either way, this is the time to think with your head and not with your heart. Remember, Aces are just the seed that still need to be planted. So the change in thinking may be small, but it’s the start you’ve been needing.
The theme/focus of the weekend is to be cautious of people who want to deceive or trick you. The other aspect of this card is being careful to not let our fears overcome us. Fear can creep into our thoughts and cloud our thinking. If we allow this to happen, we may become defenseless and open to harm.
The Ten of Wands suggest you need to accept help/support, begin delegating, and/or learning you cannot always say ‘yes’ to everything and everyone. When we consider the other two cards, it seems this is what could be causing your fear. Is it possible you’re too scared to ask for help, or that you don’t trust anyone enough to ask and this is why you don’t. The Ace suggests you are not thinking clearly and this may change soon.
Whatever is causing this fear or worry, the Ace of Wands is a welcome card. The Ace will bring clearer and realistic thinking, without your emotions getting in the way. Accept this card and accept this moment. It may be small; as an Ace this is only the first step, but try to continue this positive thinking. Think about who can help you at home and at work. Who can you trust fully and will have your back no matter what. Let go and ask for the help you need. The Ace also suggests a change in the direction of your life, and lifting the burden off your back, may just be the change it’s pointing to.
Have a great weekend!
