This week, I shuffled the Gold Foil Tarot, and asked for a reading for someone who will see this post. Read on, and see if it's for you!
The week begins with Death, and if this is your reading- everything is changing all at once. Something has reached its end, and soon the question will be about what to do next. Something always grows out of Death. But right now, you are looking at what has been lost, and trying to put your feet on the ground. You are feeling pretty shaken up, and like you are focused on the past. You are frozen, stunned, and unsure of what to do next.
The Queen of Cups comes up next, showing you in a place where you are examining your heart. This is an emotional card, and you may feel like you are losing the ground under your feet. Sometimes, the Queen can focus on a situation or a person so much that she is at risk of disappearing. Take a deep breath and do something to root yourself to the earth. It looks like you are going through a lot.
The Hermit wraps up the week, showing you soul searching and looking for the truth. You are trying to understand something, and you are starting to see that you will have to do this alone. Sometimes, it is only you that has the answers. You can ask other people, but eventually you have to get a little bit of space. Take a walk alone in the woods. Try to not look too far into the future- the Hermit is known for holding a lantern, lighting up just the path right in front of him. Figure out your next step, and then the one after that.
The key to the week is The Tower. Everything is falling apart, and you feel like you don't know what to do. The most important thing to know is that it is better to be Out of the Tower than still inside of it. You are now free from something that was binding you, and able to work towards healing and feeling better. Be kind to yourself- it's not easy when the ground crumbles beneath your feet.
Here's what I see. If this is your reading, you are going through a hell of a time. Everything changed- and all at once. You are trying to adjust, but your heart is feeling hurt, and it's hard to find the ground beneath your feet. You are in a swirl of emotions, not really sure of what to do next. It's important that you take some time off if you are able to. Don't act like things are ok when you are free falling from a Tower. Take some time to yourself. You will feel better with fresh air and walks in the woods. Don't try to figure out a long term plan right now- just decide what you are going to do next. Go step by step. Be kind to yourself. Let yourself heal. Don't be surprised if it takes some time; Death and the Tower both show that this is a major life shift that you are going through. You need some time to yourself to process it all and it's not a good idea to try to push yourself to feel better before you do. You will get through this stage of life- even if you don't think you will.
