An interesting week ahead! For this week's draw I used the Chrysalis Tarot (love this deck!) and a 3-card spread.
Early week - Ten of Stones (Pentacles): Usually viewed as a very positive card in RWS, here in Chrysalis, Toney Brooks LWB addresses the negative aspect of attachment, or as his card keyword - Possessive. So the questions are - Are you holding on to material aspects of your life too tightly? Are you feeling owned by them, rather than the reverse? Have you lost sight of your inner, and/or spiritual needs? This card asks us to take stock in our current mindset and lifestyle. Maybe it's time to unclutter your living space and gift some unused/unwanted items to friends or charity; if you've been working too hard, maybe it's time to weigh the benefits and ease off if possible; if you've been on a buying spree lately, or focused on attaining some item or items, maybe it's time to look within and see if there are other needs underneath the acquisitive urge.
Mid-week - The Artiste (Queen of Pentacles): From the reminder of the Ten of Stones to turn to our spiritual inner life, we move to The Artiste, described by Toney Brooks in the LWB as spiritual and magnetic with her role as part of the Chrysalis "Troop" (court cards) as "Muse." She inspires us to tap into our own innate creativity and experience life through the vision of inspiration. She is here to remind us to look around, watch and listen and express in creative ways what we experience - through visual arts, dance, music, drama - whatever form comes to us. She is also present in every artistic expression and urges us to open ourselves to the magic of art, and hence, the magic of existence.
End of week - Six of Spiral (Wands): If we follow along this weeks trail of advice, we come to the Success of the Six of Spirals. Whatever you have been aspiring towards or creating is nearing success as your persistence has paid off. It's always a matter of balance, however, as the Ten of Stones reminds us. If we are able to loosen our grip and attachments just a little, spirit can flow in, bringing a brighter and more balanced success to our endeavors. Once we let go, we allow the energy to flow. Getting rid of what no longer serves us (Ten of Stones), opening up to the beauty and magic of the universe (The Artiste), can lead us to the achievement and success of our creative plans and goals in a balanced and harmonious way (Six of Wands).
So this week's reading lays out a plan and advice for harmony and achievement. Focus on each step and the end of the week should find you smiling!
