Greetings Tarot Tots!!! It’s me, your favorite gothic auntie, Vyv!!
It’s the weekend again and I’m feeling very mushroomy with my fabric background today! The theme card of the week is looking a bit ominous but I think we can probably make it a good weekend nonetheless. We are using The Otherkin Tarot by Siolo Thompson once again if you are curious about the deck I am using today (and I’ve used it a few other times and will probably use it more). Let’s get to reading!
Two of Swords (Upright)- (keywords- willful blindness, indecision, denial, self-deception, stalemate, avoidance): So the theme for this week is an inability to see the issues that you have around you or maybe even within you. In the long run, the ability to avoid things like you are currently doing is going to be counterproductive, so this weekend may be some time to work on some shadow work. We’re in the process of waxing back to the full moon so it’s good to work on things that will end up positive in the long run, which could be shadow work. The ultimate goal of shadow work is to better oneself after all.
Eight of Cups (Upright)- (keywords- moving on, travel, new ideas, severing ties, change, leaving, adventure): This selkie is a representation that even though you are leaving your comfort zone, you are not alone. You are not happy in your current situation and you are looking for a new change. It’s not hard to see where you are needing to be at this point, you just haven’t moved on. It could take more than just this weekend to really move beyond this, but this is the beginning of a new start.
Queen of Swords (Reverse)– (keywords- fairness, good judgement, intelligence, independence, insight, reliability): to quote the book itself “your happiness is your responsibility– never give that power away.” It is important to realize that at this point in time you are the one who has your best interests at heart. You a strong independent person who don’t need nobody else! It’s time to straighten up your spine and look at the situation. There are things you can do to make yourself happier; like a new or old hobby or something like that. Maybe read a positive book or blog. Watch a fun video on something completely silly. Try one of those “Try not to react” videos on TikTok. Who knows? You do! YOU are in control of your happiness. Don’t let yourself or others rain on your parade! My goal for you this Saturday is to write something positive about your life that you take for granted, your home, a meal, etc. Just write down something. Write something you are good at! You are good at something!! Everyone is! You just need to apply yourself.
The Empress (Reverse)– (keywords- matriarchy, power, strength, fertility, creativity, passion, abundance, children, motherhood, prosperity): There is more to your inner child this weekend than there is to your motherly senses. Your inner child craves attention or perhaps someone else’s inner child is demanding your attention. It’s hard to really see which of this there is to see. For one thing, you are losing your ability to lead in a way that is empathetic. You are being cold and callous and you need to learn how to focus your energy to work properly with the upcoming week. The point of the Sunday card is for you to get energy for what your next week will be looking like. To me, it look like we need to step into the boss position and rock our jobs, lives, etc.. You can do a lot, but after this weekend you are very drained. Take today to give yourself a little self-care or self-love. It’s sad how much self-care is shown in a light that is almost anti-motherly, things like a nice cup of coffee or tea in the morning is neglected by those in a motherly position just because they have no time. Please try to fit some time in, even if you have to keep warming your cup up in the microwave today. 😉
It’s going to be a crazy weekend and the next week is going to be nuts as always guys. Let’s all work together to become better and do our best.
