Someone’s not having fun anymore. There’s a strong “Mean Girls” vibe all over this reading. We come into the week having mustered up the energy and courage to act on our desires. Our self-control served us well in the past, but it seems as if this week we are losing the confidence to act on our passions with integrity. Imposing on others, being pushy or melodramatic already gets us nowhere good, but it seems this week many of us are tempted to go off the rails, throwing tantrums, shade, and shoes if our efforts are thwarted or attention is denied us. (Queen of Wands rx ) As there are two 3-cards showing up reversed in this reading, a 3rd party situation may be falling apart due to someone’s power plays or ego struggles and as a result all hell is breaking loose. If this is not you beware, and if you’re the one being provoked in this way, beHAVE!
Social situations that once were enjoyable are no longer fulfilling. There may be gossip or simply incompatibility infiltrating a group of friends or coworkers. It’s ok to outgrow our surroundings. Free yourself from any guilt that arises from disassociating from what or who is no longer aligned with your goals. (3 of Cups rx) We’re being encouraged to follow our creative impulses and new business ideas toward inspiring results but our environments seem to be riddled with blockages, delays, and missed opportunities for networking and communications. (8 of Wands rx) It’s no fucking wonder, Mercury Retrograde is here! It may be that a tendency to seek ego gratification over authentic self-expression has distracted us from the path to personal growth. Come back to Earth, folks! (Empress rx)
This week the cards advise us to be careful of materialism and entitlement issues. We must align our expression with the responses we wish to receive from others. What you have does not determine your value and if your confidence is authentic, no one else’s should diminish or threaten your own. If you are feeling insecure, ignored, or denied it’s time to refocus on self care. Give yourself the consideration and congratulations that may or may not be forthcoming externally and you’ll find that your sense of self worth and value, your independence, indeed your growth seems to materialize right before your eyes and with it, those in alignment with your best will seek you out.
