Since the Heart of the Matter this week is one of challenge, the opposing card is here to support you. The Six of Cups indicates that you should bring back the innocence of childhood. Enjoy simple, fun pleasures like you did as a child. What things did you love doing as a kid? When your mind begins to move to worry thoughts, go and do one of these things.
the root cause
The Magician is an ACTION card. It talks of expansive, boundless energy and yet as this card is in the "Root Cause" position it indicates that this is causing your worry. Perhaps you're taking too much action to "fix" your worries. Or your energy is scattered and not still and focused. Time to stop being a human-doing and become a human-being. Again bring back those simple things you loved as a child and give up over-action this week.
The Son of Pentacles is a card of loyalty, trust and dependency although tending on stubbornness. This archetype also depicts social awkwardness. Are these qualities of the past impacting on your current worries? Do you have fears around loyalty, trust and dependency? Is there stubbornness of worry thoughts? Has there been past social awkwardness or something in that realm that you're afraid of reliving? Time to let go of the past and realise every moment is anew.
The Mother of Pentacles archetype suggests your identity may be currently too attached to others and what they think of you or how they need you. Or you could be currently attached to the outcome of a situation. If this is the case, how can you let go of this attachment? I've been using a prayer of release for the relationships/situations I feel I'm clinging to.
PRAYER: "I send this person/situation love and release their/it's energy from mine. I pray that the Universe/God/Spirit break the bonds of attachment between us/the situation so that we can both/or I can freely love without conditions. I give this relationship/situation over to the Universe/God/Spirit"
This card indicates stability and decisiveness, standing strong and tall and knowing just what to do. Once you move through this worry period, bring back those things you loved doing as a child, stop taking so much action and release your attachments, you can be certain you will make the right choices and take heart centred actions in the future.
The Mother of Cups indicates that you have strong intuition but may be getting caught up in victim consciousness when it comes to your worries. You also may be feeling aggressive and defensive. Just notice when that energy arises in you. Don't suppress it, but also don't react to it. Just feel it. Acknowledge it. Allow yourself time and space before communicating it.
This is the card of wishes coming true. So your environment is supporting you to cast all your fears and worries away. Peace, harmony & happiness are heading your way. So what have you got to worry about? Begin to look around. Look at all of the blessings currently around you. The simplest things, the things you loved as a kid are all still there, just look.
hopes, dreams & fears
What we dream for can often be what we also fear. The High Priestess indicates you become more still, go within and take less action. Just as we discovered in the "Root Cause", perhaps you've been taking too much action and it's adding to your worries and anxiety. Time to be still. Being still can sometimes be scarey. It can make us feel like we are "giving up" and we worry, how will anything change unless I "do something"? This week give stillness a go. Let yourself do nothing and see how much gets done. When you take action again it will come from a more heart centred, intuitive, certain place.
The outcome for this week is one of change. The Two of Pentacles is letting you know that things will change. All states are impermanent, remind yourself of this. If you feel stuck it will change. If you feel content, don't become attached, this too will change. Be present and enjoy the things you are experiencing in the present moment whether comfortable or uncomfortable. Experience it all. A wold of possibility is balanced on your delicate wings. This too shall pass.
