Hello, my friends at Cosmic Updates. It is Deco, back again for another general weekly reading. So this is for everybody, and it’s just what we need to know for this week.
We’ve done lots of these. I know we’ve had a lot of issues in relationships in the last few months. So that’s something that we’re going to continue talking about, continue to think about moving forward, because relationships are a huge part of our life anyway. And so it makes sense that we would need to be confronting those issues.
But let’s see if something has changed. Let’s see if something is different for what we’re doing this week, for the week of July 2nd through the 8th, and see what we need to note. We’ll pull some more cards as we need more guidance, but let’s just see what the cards have to say, right. Let’s give it a very good shuffle to see what we need to know.
Okay, my friends, let’s see… Okay, so this month is interesting. Again, we’re at the end of a cycle, okay.
So we have the Ten of Pentacles in reverse. And then we have the Ten of Wands, okay. So let’s start with those. Because the Tens are about the end of a journey, they’re about completing a cycle, or coming to the end of a journey, or a job, or a lesson, or many other things that can be a part of our life, right.
So we have the Ten of Wands in reverse. And the thing about the Ten of Wands is it’s like you’ve had success, you’ve had so much success that it seems overwhelming, it seems like more than you can take on, and it seems like a heavy weight. And there’s even maybe a little bit of worry here that you’re going to lose all of the things that you have gained for yourself, right.
The Ten of Pentacles, when it’s in reverse, is feeling like our money is out of control, maybe your health is out of control, or maybe things with your family are out of control. There are a lot of things that can feel like they’re slipping through your fingers.
But with the Ten of Wands being upright, my friends, it makes me think that we have some positivity coming our way despite it being just a heavy load. We’ve got a lot on our plate right now. But that doesn’t mean that pushing forward isn’t going to lead to something really positive. And in fact, I think it’s going to – we’ve got the King of Wands here. And we’ve also got the Page of Cups in reverse.
So the King of Wands is telling me that whatever this is that you’ve been working for, this Ten of Wands, I think you knew that you wanted this. You knew what your focus was, you knew your goals, you knew your resources. You were able to invest yourself in a way that ensured abundance, ensured fruits of your labor being given to you, right. Realizing that the work that you did was necessary.
But the Page of Cups in reverse is telling me that there’s some immature emotional attachment or some immature emotional vibe that’s been given off or that you’re interacting with. It’s just messing things up.
And that’s where I think this Ten of Pentacles comes in, my friends. Because sometimes we have these understandings, these naive understandings of ourselves or these beliefs in ourselves and the people around us that change how we view our successes, right.
It’s like, yes, you are successful, but you don’t believe that you’re there yet. Because there’s this understanding that maybe you’re not worthy of it, or that you’re not valuable enough. Or maybe someone else has something better than what you’ve got, some… comparison is your worst enemy. But regardless, we have something here that is making us question the value of our efforts, okay.
And so we have to start thinking about how to get rid of that negative mindset. And I think that’s what we need to focus on next. Like, how do we believe that the things that we’ve earned are the things that we deserve, right? How do we ensure that we believe that, instead of convincing ourselves that we don’t? How do we change our mindset?
Wow, that’s… of course, trying to pop out… this card very much wanting to be seen. Okay, I see that mindset coming back in. Okay, so, again, relationships, but it’s an interesting mix of relationships here. We might have some issues in one area and really supportive, wonderful people in another, okay.
Again, I see that mindset is an issue. And I think that this is more of like, again, that naive sense of like, nothing’s ever going to get better, nothing’s going to turn out right, when really, the thing about the Wheel of Fortune, even when it’s in reverse, is that even if you’re on the downside, the thing about the Wheel of Fortune is it keeps turning whether we realize it’s turning or not. It’s like things are always going to get better for us before they get worse. Sometimes it feels like things get worse first, and hopefully that’s not the case. But you know, ideally, when we’re in those low moments, we remember that, you know what, with those lows come the highs, and we just have to remember that. And I think, to remember that, you need to take some time for yourself, my friends.
The Four of Swords, more than any card, is about rest. It’s about taking time for self-care, taking time for you, and making sure that you have given yourself the space for healing, for rejuvenation, for your spiritual practices, whatever it is. It’s just taking time for you, meditating, but really just resting, doing the things that bring you joy.
Right now, the reason I said it was complicated in relationships is because we’ve got the Three of Pentacles in reverse, but we’ve also got the Lovers. So these can be about relationships, right. When I think of the Three of Pentacles, when it’s in reverse, it’s making me think that the people that you’re trying to work with towards some goal, they’re not working with you well, or maybe you’re not working well with them. Maybe there’s just some sort of imbalance here where there’s like an uncertainty in how we can interact with these people. There’s an uncertainty in knowing that they are helping us instead of hindering us, right. And so it’s hard to buy into these things.
But it can also be in a little bit of stubbornness, like maybe you see these people and you think, “Oh, I know better than that,” right. But I think that we need to kind of change that and try to think for ourselves. Especially with this Lovers here, we need to think for ourselves. Like, are we trying to just go our own way? And so we’re ostracizing these people? Or do we just feel like they’re not our vibe, right? And I think that it’s about finding that balance in our life.
The Lovers, in particular, is exiting the Hierophant, right. So the Hierophant in the Major Arcana is about the institution of, like, what’s the word I’m looking for? A group of people that is recognized and traditional. It’s about values, it’s about… it can be about religion, it can be about so many things.
Some people look at the Hierophant and they think AAA, some people think the Hierophant and they think church, some people see the Hierophant and they think marriage. It’s a lot of different things that are part of conforming.
And when the Lovers comes out, it’s about us taking a step away from that and finding what we love, who we love, and relying on those people instead of feeling like we have to be part of this little box, right. It’s part of our journey. Yes, we will have value in the institution. And now it’s about moving forward with the people that we trust the most, right.
So the thing about the Lovers too, though, is it’s about decisions, right. We’re stepping away from something that we’ve been a larger part of and thinking about something that fits better for us. That doesn’t necessarily mean a person, right. It could mean a job, it could mean a passion, it could mean a lot of different things. So there are decisions that need to be made here for your benefit.
Maybe the reason that this Three of Pentacles is in reverse is that you’ve got these amazing ideas that don’t match the institution that you were a part of… the job or the group or whatever it was that you were a part of. And so you need to kind of take some time for yourself, rest, rejuvenate, and then make some decisions.
Now let’s see, how do we make sure that the choices we’re making for ourselves are positive for us? What do we need to do to make sure that the things we’re doing for us are what’s best for us? How do we do that? Because that’s really our goal, right. It’s just to live our best life that is happy and healthy and secure and full of love and light.
Okay, so let’s see. How do we do that? This card also wants to be seen… Okay. Okay, slow and steady wins the race, my friends. I love this. Okay, so let’s go in the order that I saw them because I think that it kind of tells the story in itself.
The Five of Pentacles is in reverse. This is moving away from an understanding of feeling locked out, left out, forgotten. It’s like there… when we look at the Five of Pentacles upright, these people are right outside of what appears to be a church, right, and they are being left out in the cold, literally. It’s snowing. They’re not in an environment where they have growth or care, whatever the end. They see that there are people right there that could be helping them but just are not there. They’re turning a blind eye, they’re playing oblivious, right.
But when it’s in reverse, those things are starting to change. We’re starting to move out of that space and understand that maybe those people aren’t forgetting us, maybe they don’t realize that we needed their help in the first place. We need to ask for some help. But it could also mean that those people are starting to wake up and say, “Oh, I see you now. I’m sorry that I didn’t see it before.” Okay.
So that’s part of it – understanding that we’re moving out of that space of loneliness, where we’re feeling like people don’t understand us, and where we’re feeling like maybe the things we’re working towards are not working out for us for whatever reason, right? And we’re not getting along with people because we’re trying to make our own path.
Here’s the thing: I think that we need to be focused on our goals, right. The Knight of Pentacles is all about moving forward but being willing to do it for the long haul. The Knight of Pentacles is very stationary because he takes time. He is the tortoise in “The Tortoise and the Hare,” right. He is taking his time, he is “slow and steady wins the race.” He’s finding his way as he needs to, and he is ensuring his success because he’s not going to overspend, overexert, whatever. He’s also not going to be super stubborn. You know, he’s going to stay on his path.
But he’s not going to be so blinded by his goals that he isn’t able to adjust accordingly. And the reason I think that is because we’ve got the Six of Swords, my friends. Well, the Six of Swords is not necessarily the happiest card. Again, the Swords—the journey of the Swords—is not a very exciting or happy one. The Six of Swords, I call the Navigator, and the Navigator is really about, like, finding those obstacles and understanding that they’re an obstacle to overcome, not an obstacle that’s going to keep you from moving forward, right.
So what we have to remember here is we have the capability to continue moving forward, to be flexible on our path, to understand that we’re not alone, especially if we open our eyes and we reach out to the right people. And ultimately, my friends, that’s going to bring us this lightness that we’re looking for in our life… just moving forward, remembering what our goals are, remembering that we’re not alone, as long as we are open with our struggles, right. And then understanding too, that you can overcome those struggles. And if you need help, you’ve got people behind you. But ultimately, you have the ability to move past whatever obstacle gets in your way.
So, especially with this Sun, my friends, I think we’ve had a lot to move… or not move forward but to look forward to this week, to understand that whatever obstacles present themselves to you, you have the ability to overcome them. You can do this. Remember what brings you joy. Remember what you love and make some decisions that are true to who you are so that you can live your best life because that’s who is most important, right? Is you. Alright, love you so much. Have a great week.
