Iris X Reading of the Week/Week beginning on 8/29/22:
Good Morning and happy Monday to the friends of Iris X Readings. Every week, I shuffle the cards, and ask for a reading for someone who will see this post. I never know who it will be for until I post it. This week's reading was done on The Black Tarot by Victoria Iva.
The week begins with the Eight of Cups and a journey. If this is your reading, there is something that you are looking for. Things are not quite coming together or adding up. You find yourself wanting to walk away for time to yourself. You are looking to other people to meet needs that only you can meet, and so you end up feeling lost. You are not even sure of what the question is anymore; just that you don't understand something.
The Star comes up next, reminding you that you are healing from a very painful life event. Something fell apart in your life, and everything felt like it froze up. Now, you are starting to feel again after cutting yourself off for a while. You are thawing out for the first time in a long time and this has left you feeling like you are always reaching for something that you can't find. Your inspiration will return- you will not always feel like this.
The Six of Cups rounds off the week with a bridge to cross. You are growing and changing, but this does not come without pain. It is time to decide what you will leave behind before you move onto the next stage of your life. You are feeling nostalgic, thinking about the wisdom that you have gained. This is a card of past loves and lessons, and the decisions of what you leave behind.
The key to the week is the Eight of Swords. You have been trapped in your own thoughts, ruminating and thinking in circles. You have been having a hard time seeing which way to go, and you have felt stuck in an in between where nothing is changing very quickly. You are tied into something that is hurting you, and you don't know how to get away. The key is in figuring out where you are not trapped. You can walk away more easily than you think you can. Use your mind to find a way out of a trap.
Here's what I see. If this is your reading, you have been walking in circles in your mind. You are running through scenarios and possibilities, and getting yourself angry and upset. You have gone through something really traumatic, and you can't stop thinking about it and trying to figure it all out. You are asking other people, and what you need to do is to take a walk alone. You are at a pivotal time in your life right now, about to cross the bridge into the next life stage. You are growing up and maturing. You are healing and starting to feel your emotions again. The key for you is to realize that while you were held back and harmed; you are no longer trapped. You can walk away and move on. You are not stuck anymore, and you will be able to heal. Just get some space to yourself to think- it's time to ask yourself the questions you have been asking everyone else. You may even find the answers.
Have a great week! If you need a reading this week, send a message to email@example.com.
