Iris X Reading of the Week/Week beginning on 3/6/23:
This week's reading was done on The Mermaid Tarot- a beautiful deck created by Dame Darcy. Perhaps my heart is still with the Sea this week! I shuffled the cards, and asked for a reading for someone who will read this post. Read on- see if it's for you!
The week begins with Death, and if this is your reading, you are going through a time of challenge and transition. You will end up characterizing this time as the time when everything changed in your life. The Sun will come up in the background, and you will resurface and grow. But, for now- you are in a tough space, dealing with the end of an era in your life.
The Emperor comes up next, showing that you are trying to stay in control of your situation. You feel like you need a plan and a way forward. You want to know what is going to happen, and how you are going to get there. You are seeking a solid ground under your feet that you can build up on. You feel like you need to trust where you are going, and like you should have a long term plan. It may be hard to get to this place while going through a time of Death.
The X of Swords is the first Minor arcana card of the week, and it shows how you are feeling. You feel like you have ten swords in your back- you are exhausted and feel like you don't have energy. It may not feel like it right now, but you are at the end of a really tough time. It is wrapping up, and you will be feeling better. This card actually shows the sun coming up in the background-the only constant here is change, and that is a good thing.
The key to the week is the Queen of Wands. This is your power, passion, and energy- and you Will get it back. When you do, it will be much easier to move forward and feel better. For now, start getting back into activities and practices that bring back your fire energy. Whether it is music, art, or spiritual practices- this is going to be the key to getting your energy back. And once you do, you will feel a lot better.
Here's what I see. If this is your reading, you are going through a really hard time right now! Everything is changing and it feels like it is happening all at once. You are trying to maintain control of a situation that is not at all in your power. You feel like you have been put through the ringer, and your energy and trust in the world is failing. This has all been really hard on you, and your energy is low. For now, you have to do conscious things to get your power back. It's not a good time to sit still- and if you need a plan, let it be how to get your energy and spark back, one step at a time. You will feel better; and right now, this is very important to know. It's not going to keep feeling this way.
Have a good week, and if this is your reading- hang in there! If you need a reading this week, send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
