Welcome to your weekly Tarot forecast! Hope you like the rose and lavender combo; even though we are still in an RV park with a little patio, greenery is still possible. And the lavender smell is so soothing! Smokey here today in southwestern Oregon; hopefully the last of that this year, since the rain is coming for all of next week.
I’m using The Wildwood Tarot, which always makes me feel in tune with the Earth and its natural cycles, as we see a change in seasons in the latitudes closer to the poles.
Since there is no specific question or area of concern for these readings, my interpretation will be very general in nature, based on my sense of what the Tarot itself is addressing and the general energy potentials for the week.
Let’s do a chronological look first, and then we’ll use some mirrored pairs to round out the message.
The Timeline View
We begin with good feelings all around. Maybe an opportunity to spend quality time with friends (Three of Vessels), possibly old friends you haven’t seen in a while (Six of Vessels) or a meditative workshop, even. And you could lead the preparation for a get-together. Sounds like a great plan.
By midweek, things shift and all those good feelings will need to be channeled into taking on responsibilities for your family or “tribe.” The Ten of Bows will ask you to get back to work.
Moving toward the end of the week, the call of the Moon enters the picture. After all that effort with the Ten of Bows, I’m seeing this nature-based Moon calling for a bit of rest and meditation. Find a nearby nature area or park, or head out to your own backyard in the evening and chill with the new moon this week (it happens on Tuesday). As the Moon turns to wax again, the Ace of Bows appears to end your week with a spark of life for a new weekend project or social event. Lovely week!
The Mirrored Tarot Pairs
The focal point for this view of your cards is the only really hard-work-responsible part of the week: the Ten of Bows. I think it means that getting your work done this week will be key to enjoying the energy of the other cards in the draw.
Now let’s pair the outer cards up to see how they might inform your situation. The Three of Vessels coupled with the Ace of Bows. So, I did talk about that Ace possibly being the instigator of a social event (let’s party!), and this pairing reinforces that option. I’m seeing quilting group starting on a new project, mastermind group, going camping with friends in your favorite spot.
The inner pair of the Six of Vessels and the Moon surround your Ten of Bows with relaxation energy to support that effort. I know the Ten of Bows dude is by himself, but don’t forget the support you have from old friends and family for your work. You’ve come a long way, and once you get to your goal, you can do that new moon ritual next to a body of water, and maybe also find some time to play, like the otters in the card.
Cosmic Whispers of the Week
Chloë McCracken has had a major energetic shift over this past solar eclipse month. She’s found that “the problem is not the problem” and has found a great way to get past the superficial symptoms of an issue to the underlying emotional “stuff” that she’s used EFT/tapping and her own brand of magic to work out. Check out her solution here.
Six of Swords has a great series on a divination tool I’d love to explore more someday, runes. And she likes to relate them to Tarot cards. Very neat. Check out the latest post here, and then you can explore the entire series.
