Last week was intense. It brought with it a series of foreseen events that were not deciphered in time, and aggravating circumstances that made it very serious. It's shocking how in a single moment, the earth gives out beneath our feet and we find ourselves falling. It took a lot of support to reel through a risky surgery, but we all made it out okay. I'm so thankful it was successful, seeing as it took us all by surprise.I am surprised at the Halloween Tarot. It delivered very eerie news in the simplest way possible. Even if I missed the message, once I was on track it was better to work with. For that I'm thankful.
This week is foretold by another deck I have been lugging around at these times. It is the Bohemian Gothic Tarot, and one eerily associated with the light blue and white corridors of the Auxilio Mutuo hospital. The catholic images resonate with gothic architecture, making this hospital a blend of the new with the old that is really hard to miss. The chapel is very dark, which is strange for that environment. In this light the stained glass really shined, though. It was really beautiful.
♡ Monday. Judgement. A second life, a second chance to live and make corrections. See as these angels revive this corpse or send it on its merry way. This card hits home, and oh does it! The promise of renewal is a powerful motivator, and it is what we feel is happening. When a new life cycle starts, we can tell right away that there is something going on even if we don't immediately recognize it.
♡ Tuesday. King of Coins. See, his head lies over the tome of his estates. He is weary now because it took a lot of work to ensure his future. He reminds me of my Grandpa. This lavish crown is product of hard work. These aren't dreams coming true, that's not concrete enough. This is just the grind work. It doesn't take creativity yo get this King's job done.
♡ Wednesday. Ten of Swords. This card is difficult to confront. A lady in mourning bows her head to utter prayers for the lost. In an optimistic standpoint this could be saying good-bye to sorrow because it's over. More likely than not these will be bad news. Hope we're ready to handle them when they come. It's an ending of some sort for sure.
♡ Thursday. Knight of Coins. This guy is headless! He doesn't think about anything, he's so clumsy. Why is he lying dormant somewhere when he could be carrying some plans forward? How annoying. This gives me the impression that someone doesn't think things over so much. They are in leisure while they should be at work. Maybe they are already at work but we just don't realize it.
♡ Friday. Queen of Wands. See, she shines! Her dress merits attention, but perhaps it is just the way that she wears it. She makes the rest of the room seem opaque, and looks around with distaste for the rest of the people around. What a drama queen!
♡ Saturday. Two of Cups. She sits alone with her thoughts, but not for long. A suitor is going to try to impress her, he has a few ideas for romantic rendezvous under the full moon. He's sharp, he's witty and he's ready to try to win her heart. Watch out, girl! This boy is after your heart.
♡ Sunday. Five of Coins. If you ask for help, it will come. If you don't, you find yourself out in the cold... and in need. This is a time of financial stress and little to no relief from it. The crows are the nagging teachers, reminding us of our losses and what we did to get to this point. No one likes to hear nagging at a time of stress or need.
♡ What to avoid. Knight of Cups. Romantic idealization and castles in the sky aren't the way to proceed. Don't get carried away with the turbulence of your feelings and the impulse to chase dreams, or else you may find yourself falling right back into reality. Sometimes you don't really even realize you're riding on a dream until you fall off. This card feels as if he is at the brink where reality meets dreams, and unsure about what comes next.
♡ What to strive for. Nine of Cups. Drink, eat. Simple pleasures are often best. Treat yourself to comfort and simple pleasures for a job well done. Simple luxuries can go a long way at making us feel at home. Light some candles, set the ambiance and enjoy yourself truly.
This concludes the only weekly projections that have taken a long time to finish. While stuck in a roller coaster of some of the most intense emotions I have felt in a while, I find myself with great gratitude for how things have worked out. Nearly losing an indispensable person in my life has really put things in perspective for me. Now I am grounded and happy because I have found my way back home is the only place I am meant to be at right now.Plans for the future? Sure. I can make them, but first I have to tend to something important. Then we can talk about the rest.
