Iris X Reading of the Week/Week beginning on 5/13/24:

Updated: May 13

This week's reading was done on The Tarot of Curious Creatures. This deck was created by Cris-Anne, who is well known for the Light Seer's Tarot. This deck is quite different, fantastical and obscure. It is new to me- I just got it at the Three Ring Traveling Apothecary in Brattleboro, VT, which is a wonderful shop of curiosities and interesting art and collections of all kinds. The owner is lovely and friendly. She gave me a great cup of tea to sip as I wandered her shop, and a sample of amazing smelling soap as I left. Highly recommended! I shuffled the cards and asked for a reading for someone who will see this. I never know who it will be for until I post it. This reading is for someone who is Just coming out of a challenging time, and is finding their inspiration and happiness again. Read on- see if it's for you or someone you know! 

The reading begins with The Star. If this is your reading, you are taking a deep breath. You are in a place of healing- but you are here because there was something that caused you harm. You are finding your inspiration and clarity again. You feel creative for the first time in a long time, and like your energy is finally returning. Your life is focused on healing and finding your inspiration again. Your energy is just beginning to flow again, and can't be rushed. 

The VII of Cups is next, showing you feeling confused about which direction to take. There are many options and ways that you could go, but you feel like you can't decide. You have been feeling thoughtful and contemplative, wondering what is the most important thing to do first. You try to move forward, and feel like you are lost in thoughts and daydreams. You feel like you could stare at the sea for hours. Your mind is seeking peace, even as you wonder what the next action is. 

The Tower reminds you of why you are in this state in the first place. Things really fell apart in your life. You feel like you still haven't hit the ground yet. There are days that you feel ok, and other days where you are stunned by what happened. You have a lot to ponder- what you thought was stable in your life crumbled, leaving you feeling like you are in a free fall. This is all still very present in your life, and could be affecting your ability to pay attention and follow through. 

The key to this reading is the IV of Wands. For now, don't focus on what you should Do; instead focus on what makes you happy. Spend time with people in your life that make you feel peaceful and inspired. Make time for celebration and lightheartedness. Find opportunities to gather with like minded souls to enjoy life. Cooperate with people that you care about to do something powerful. Celebrate and find opportunities to make you feel energized, accomplished and inspired. 

Here's what I see. If this is your reading, you have gone through a really hard time. In fact- you may still be in the middle of it all. But there are glimpses of healing and enchantment. You are finding the things that draw your attention and make you excited again. You feel creative and like your energy is flowing after a long time of being held back. But you are worried because you feel like you can't focus your attention well. You can think of a lot of things to do, but you worry that you lack the focus to make it all happen. You feel spacey and like you don't know what to do next. Yet, you have been through a really hard time. Perhaps, right now- you are just meant to find your inspiration again and to be around people that you love and that care about you. It may not be time to push forward right now; it may be time to heal, find your creativity, and cooperate with people. It seems like you need to feel successful right now, so you are pushing forward to do something. But after the Tower, perhaps you are trying to move too quickly. Success, at this moment, may look more like finding ways to be happy and enjoy your life. You are healing, and that is a process. Let yourself daydream and ponder the future without feeling like you have to make a To-do list. In short- relax. Things have been hard and you don't have to Act right away. Feeling better and finding your inspiration is first. The actions that you take will naturally follow your enchantment. You will have new ideas and things that you want to do. AND you will have the willpower to make it all happen. For now- give yourself a break, and find the ground under your feet after a long fall.
