This past week was really busy. I found myself doing the corporate dance with a company. All of my spare time and plans were put on temporary hiatus to knock out some projects before the weekend. There was definitely lots of negotiation and clarity involved. It was a very enjoyable experience.
I am happy to announce that as of the 27th, I will officially have been here in Los Angeles or a month. Can you believe it? Honestly, I can’t! When people ask me how it feels to be here, I fumble for a response. It’s hard to compress how great it all is into a short sentence. Usually my response is that I don’t know what made me wait so long to get here. It sums it all up just right!
This week seems centered around getting my affairs in order. This is definitely 75% progress on the transitional period of moving from Puerto Rico to LA. Even though it’s tough, it seems as if I am leaning towards the definitive possibility of staying here. I will be flying back to Puerto Rico for a month in the holidays, but after that it seems I’m on my own again. If all goes according to plan, I will be applying for a California license come the summer. — Why are we already talking about summer when Halloween hasn’t arrived yet!?
♡ Monday. Temperance. Take it easy, take this time to do everything that you have had pending on your to-do list. If there is anything whirring around in the back of your head that won’t let you focus on the present, now is the time to do it before the week picks up. Find those things that are subtle but still bother you and rectify them.
♡ Tuesday. Five of Coins. What did you walk away from? Backtrack. Don’t turn your back on opportunities even if they don’t seem to be immediately what you need. Ask for help when you need it and show gratitude. When you don’t like to rely on others unless you absolutely have to, it can be tough.
♡ Wednesday. The Lovers. Reconciliation with your surroundings, with others and with yourself is manifested in this card. Divine approval shines down as a nudge in the right direction or the reminder that your sacrifice does not go without reward. There is purpose in what you do, and the most important thing is for you not to forget that.
♡ Thursday. Three of Wands. Wait out the circumstances to get your answer. When you’re far away, you’re powerless to control what is happening on the other side. All you can do is be patient, give it time and wait it out. Once you receive the news that come from far away, things will once more mobilize. You will be able to pick up and carry on, but not until then. You have to learn how to be patient and wait.
♡ Friday. Queen of Coins. Stability comes at last, this card is in direct relation to the setup of the week in the Five of Coins. We go from the difficult 5 to the court card of empowerment. This is sheer understanding of the circumstances, luxury and abundance in the environment. Enjoy it, you’ve worked so hard for it!
♡ Saturday. Four of Wands. Stability in the house or the foundation for your career. It’s stable now and you can definitely start to build upon it without any fear of it toppling down. This is reason enough to celebrate where you are, and being grounded in the present. There is no better place to be than in the now.
♡ Sunday. Five of Wands. Nothing stirs reality up like a challenge. Work out the problem at a timely manner to save you any trouble in the incoming week. Welcome the end of this week on your feet, because it’s going out with a bang. Be prepared to handle conflict and confrontation.
♡ What to avoid. The Fool. Don’t put yourself in the position of being in an awkward situation. If you are aware of problems before they come to happen, it will be easier to avoid them. If you decide to plow through life unaware, you will stumble and bump along the way, but you will come out with hard-earned experience. There is a balance you should seek; try to avoid some bumps along the road if you can afford to. Get your hands dirty when necessary and be grateful for the opportunity to be able to.
♡ What to strive for. The Hanged Man. Take it easy. It’s okay not to seek immediate action on your affairs. Settle down, let them sort themselves out. You can’t control every circumstance even if you would like to. It’s great that you’re willing to, but some things you must accept that you don’t have power over. Watch as things happen and embrace the change gracefully. You don’t need to feel that you don’t matter, just acknowledge that sometimes you have to give up your attempts to find your fit in the bigger picture.
There are a lot of messages encrypted in this week’s reading. I look forward to telling you how it worked out next week. Do you have plans for Halloween yet?
