Iris X Reading of the Week/Week beginning on 11.7.22:
Happy Monday to the friends of Iris X Readings! I shuffled the Santa Muerte Tarot and asked for a reading for someone who will see this post. It may be for one particular person or for a bunch. Read on- see if it is for you!
The week begins with Temperance. If this is your reading, this is Tarot's way of saying- calm down. Temperance often comes up when there is a lot of pressure and chaos. The challenge is about staying in balance and not getting pulled into extremes. It is about lightening up a little bit, and tempering down extreme thoughts and feelings. In Tarot, Temperance is in between Death and the Devil. You are also in the middle of an intense and challenging situation. Stay as calm as you can. Don't let your environment determine how you feel.
The Knight of Swords appears next. You have been moving at a breakneck speed. You are busy, and on top of that, everything just goes in the most challenging way possible. You feel like you're spinning your wheels- expending energy, but not getting anything in return for your work. Obstacles have been popping up, and you just have to keep pushing through them. You are exhausted, but running.
The Page of Swords wraps up your week with a message of change. This Page shows something difficult that is starting; the winds that are changing. I pulled another card for the message of the Page and The Devil came up. You are not completely beat yet; you are still standing. But the longer you keep up this pace, the more exhausted you will be. It is time to stand up for yourself. There is something that is draining your energy and power, and the effect is going to get more challenging as time goes on.
The key to the week is the II of Pentacles. You have a lot to juggle, and you can't exactly stop what you are doing without dropping it all. This is a card of balance, and of holding everything lightly. Don't let it be too heavy- stop doing things the hard way. See if you can balance out your life so that you are able to breathe. You need to have time to yourself too, so take a step back to see where you might be able to do that. Juggle only what you can manage right now.
Here's what I see. If this is your reading, the cards are giving you advance notice that the pace that you have been moving in your life is too much. You are exhausted, and if this continues you will end up draining your power and energy. Something has to give. You have to be Temperance, staying calm and centered in the middle of chaos. Do not let your environment dictate your life right now. Know when to cut ties and walk away from what is taking more from you than it is giving. Stop doing things the hard way; see if you can go with the flow a bit more and refuse to take on more than is reasonable for one person to manage.
If this is your reading, take care and get some rest! If you need a reading this week, send a message to email@example.com. Have a great week!
