Iris X Reading of the Week/Week beginning on 5.23.22:

Good Morning and Happy Moon day to the friends of Iris X Readings. This week's reading was done on the Hush Tarot, created by Jeremy Hush. I love it for its dark tones and focus on birds!

The II of Wands starts the week, and if this is your reading, your focus is solidly on the future. You are coming up with plans and ideas, and focusing on how you are going to make your life into what you want it to be. You are looking forward, not back- and you are ready to take a step forward. You feel like you are at a pivotal time in your life, and there is so much that you want to do.

The Hanged Man comes up next, showing you in an in between place. You are at a Crossroads- your life is changing as we speak. You have a lot of choices right now and you are ready to Not be in the place of 'in-between.' But this is a card of suspension. It is possible that you are right where you are meant to be right now, and that you don't have to move one way or the other yet. There is a lot of wisdom that can be gained when you are in between 'lives.' You can turn things around and look at it all upside down, and see what comes up in the stillness.

The Chariot says- you don't really want to do that. You are full steam ahead, ready for the next thing. You have goals and plans and ideas- and you don't want to be still. The crossroads are not comfortable for you, you want to choose a path and to move forward- any path is fine, as long as it is moving away from your past. You are looking at accomplishing your goals and shaking up your life.

The key to the week is quite simple. The VIII of Pentacles says- it's ok to slow down. This is a card of focusing on one thing at a time, and being very conscious and deliberate about the steps that you take. It is a good time to be grounded and focusing on earthly tasks. The key is to focus- and to not do too many things at once. You would benefit from putting your feet on the ground.

Here's what I see. What a push and pull! If this is your reading, you are in a state of suspension- stuck in an in between place. You don't want to be there, and so you are trying to move forward as quickly as you can. All signs point towards it being a good time to be quiet and reflective, but you feel like you are done with that and ready for the next thing. You are charging forward- but it's possible that you are not thinking about where you are going. With the Hanged Man, you would gain wisdom in the place of suspension right now; but you want to hop on the Chariot and move on. It's hard to ignore that impulse. Still- if you are able to; you would benefit from slowing down a bit, and focusing on one thing at a time. It may be uncomfortable to be in the in- between place, but it's smart to stay there until you are sure about which way you are going at the crossroads. See if you can focus on the tasks and experiences of today. Who knows what will happen tomorrow. The cards are saying here that you are torn between stillness and movement- and slowing down is the best thing you can do. Perhaps- find a balance.

Have a great week! If you need a reading, send a message to
