Hello Internet! How are you doing?
I am writing to you with refreshed mood and spirits after a lovely weekend. Roger and I went to see Julien-K live, which were really very good, and there we bumped into some of the usual suspects. It was fun, but there were no photos taken to commemorate the night.
Last week’s spread had unexpected news. The Three of Swords marks the day my grandfather passed away. At 91, this war veteran is leaving my father rather heartbroken. He had to fly back to Puerto Rico over the weekend to attend arrangements and funerary services. The Three of Wands represented a three way call in which I had to break the news to him. Those were the cards that stood out the most.
This week’s spread seems to be a reminder to a reality check. It is riddled with warnings to be careful and to keep eyes open for opportunities. Let’s see how it’s going to go.
♡ Monday. Four of Coins. Hang onto what you’ve got and make the best use of it, too. Maybe you don’t want to invest. If you don’t, it’s not likely you will get much else back anyway. Sometimes we nee dot wait until it is safe to spend, other times we have to be thankful for what we have.
♡ Tuesday. Ten of Swords. Are you worn out? Did you get bad news that ruined your day? Did you push yourself too hard? Watch out and take care of yourself. You’re all that you’ve got, so make sure you act like it.
♡ Wednesday. The World. With every end, comes a new beginning. Embrace what is new and working for you, and let go of whatever it is you’re walking away from. Meet good fortune with a smile.
♡ Thursday. The Devil. What controls you today is because you let it control you. You could easily slip out of the grasp of whatever is keeping you from moving forward, but will not if you don’t stand up for yourself. This can be a test of strength.
♡ Friday. Four of Wands. Stay in the house? Enjoy the company? Having a low key day is pretty good, and can be pretty comfortable. Look to stay in, have some pizza and some wine. Spark up a grand conversation with your other half.
♡ Saturday. Nine of Coins. What a nice day. This is a comfortable scene. See, she stands in a field with all of her efforts in bloom. She holds close a bird and a cat, which she strokes affectionately. Life is good! Enjoy the product of your efforts.
♡ Sunday. Five of Swords. Conflict sometimes comes with unfortunate resolutions. It seems there must always be a winner and a loser, although I don’t think it’s true. If you’re the one at loss, accept it gracefully. If you’ve won over an argument, try not to be smug. It’ll rub people the wrong way and distance them from you.
♡ What to avoid. Knight of Wands. Avoid acting on impulse and passion, without careful thought or consideration to consequence of actions. Look to restrain yourself if you catch yourself about to do something bold, because the timing might not be right.
♡ What to strive for. Four of Swords. Seek to rest, seek comfort away from others. Look to identify your own areas of exploration yet to cover, and don’t worry about what others are doing. You’re on your own because that is when the best ideas come to you anyway. Just rest.
Let's see how it goes.
