Good Morning to the friends of Iris X readings! This week's reading was done on the Santa Muerte Tarot. I asked the cards for a reading for someone who will read this post. I never know who it will be for- read on and see if it is for you.
The week begins with the VI of Cups and if this is your reading, you are feeling nostalgic. You are thinking a lot about the past and getting stuck there. You have moved on and you thought you left your past behind, but it is still haunting you. You are having thoughts of your past and how things might have gone differently. It may be time to finish crossing the bridge to the next stage of life.
The Chariot comes up next, and shows you moving very quickly. You are busy and very goal oriented. Your focus has been solidly on the future and where you are going, and this may be what is now making you ruminate about the past. You were feeling very sure of what you were doing and you were moving full speed ahead. It is possible that you have been moving fast to avoid looking at the past, but it has not worked.
The Hermit wraps up the week with the advice to spend some time alone. You have a lot to think about, and it is wise to slow down so that you can focus. Take walks in the woods alone, and look at everything piece by piece. There is a lot that you can learn and understand right now, but your answers are not outside of you. You will have to look inside, and search your own thoughts for your answers.
The key to the week is the II of Wands- a card of moving forward with a solid plan. It is a card of contemplation and putting some thought into where you are going and where you have been. It is ok to pause and think before you take the next step forward. What do you want? Where have you not gone that you want to go? You have a whole life to plan, and it's ok to stop for a few minutes to do this well.
Here's what I see. If this is your reading, your life has changed, and you have tried to move on too quickly. You are living with one foot in your old life and one foot in your new life, and it is taking its toll on you. You are finding yourself thinking a lot about the past and wondering what you could have done differently. You tried to move on so fast, that it is actually causing you to slow down. You need some time to yourself as The Hermit. From there, you can plan your future without the influence of anyone else. Take a break, and look at what you want to do next. Spend some time in between the past and the future, and move forward with intention and focus.
Take care, and have a good week. I will be on vacation from 7/13-7/20. I will return all messages when I get back!
