Hello, hello, beautiful souls here at Cosmic Updates. This is Galena the Mystic, your intuitive tarot reader. I’m back with another weekend love tarot reading. This time for the week of our weekend of August 18th through the 20th. So let’s go ahead and see what we have in store this week. I want to thank you so much for commenting. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful stories with me. Thank you so much for being here. I’m excited to get into it. Okay, I also have some Oracle cards for us. Seems like the cards are taking a little minute to come out this week, so I’m taking note of that. We do have the Sx of Pentacles reversed. This could be a difficulty being receptive. I want to get a few clarifiers though.
Two of Pentacles. I’m just hearing have your cake and eat it too. Interesting. Queen of Swords reversed and the Ace of Cups reversed. Top of the deck, Four of Cups. Okay, so it seems this weekend we are feeling a little wonky. Wonky is the word that I’m getting. Queen of Swords reversed. I think our mind could be playing some tricks on us. If I’m being completely honest. With the Ace of Cups reversed, there’s a hesitancy to keep the heart open and you could be feeling frustrated with yourself. Why do I keep going back and forth between these energies? Why do I shift between one paradigm and the next, or one paradigm and the last paradigm I was in, and with the Six of Pentacles, it’s making it a little bit difficult for you to get into a positive frame of mind with the Four of Cups, there’s a blessing here.
There is a blessing. It could actually be this Ace of Cups, new relationship, new connection. But regardless, there’s blessings here, but we’re kind of sitting with our arms crossed and our legs crossed, almost like we’re feeling like we’re put on time out or feeling like we can’t accept what’s being given to us. Seven of Wands reversed. This makes so much sense. This was on top of the deck, by the way, with the High Priestess reversed.
I almost feel like we’re taking a couple steps backwards here with the Seven of Wands, this inner resistance we’re being presented with something so positive, but something in you wants to fight it. Something within you is telling you no. And what that something is, it’s our inner critic. It’s our fear. It’s our ego wanting to protect our heart, and that inner critic is extra loud sometimes. However, even though you want to resist internally, I think you’re still making the choice to just observe what’s being presented in your reality.
Almost like, “I guess… if this is going to happen, I guess if this beautiful relationship’s going to be presented to me, I guess, or if I’m waiting and I’m meant to love on myself and manifest my soulmate during this time, then I guess.”
It’s just the fact that something that’s being presented to us, we’re not quite satisfied with it. And this doesn’t mean we’re sorry a call dropped. This doesn’t mean that we are settling in any kind of way. It’s our inner trauma, something within our system, something learned within our system. Not something natural, but something learned within our system. A system that we’ve relied on a lot to survive. Other situations we’ve been in that system is activated this weekend. And because we’re not acting on our impulses, we’re just kind of dealing with these things all internally, with all these reversals, right? And I promise I shuffled. For those of you who think I don’t shuffle, I do.
The reversals are totally random. But with all these reversals, it’s showing me that this battle’s happening more inside and it’s making it hard for us to open up on the outside because this is the only upright card we’re seeing. So this is kind of how you’re presenting yourself in love this weekend.
Someone could even be trying to make peace with you, giving you gifts or something like that, and you’re just like, okay, fine. Kind of just practicing detachment a little bit. But on the inside it seems like there’s maybe alarms going off even and with the High Priestess reversed this system, I want to say even though it’s a feeling you’re having within, it’s not rooted in your intuition. In fact, I feel like your intuition is something you’re having a harder time accessing this weekend. So there’s clarity because you’re seeing things for what they are. You’re present, you’re aware, but there’s a lack of clarity within. There’s a lot of chatter, a lot of noise, a lot of back and forth. Let’s see what else is coming through this weekend?
We have the Eight of Cups and the Eight of Swords. Wow, two Eights. So repeating eights could be a confirmation from your spirit guides that you’re on the right track. But with the Eight of Swords, this is someone who feels confined, someone who feels trapped, someone who’s trapped specifically by their limiting beliefs. Swords are of the mind. And the Eight of Cups; this is someone walking away choosing their spiritual journey, freeing themselves. Maybe you are in a situation where you’re feeling like, I just can’t make this work. I can’t make this work. I know spirits told me that there could be positive possibilities in this situation, but I just can’t push myself to move differently. I can’t push myself accept this. We’re not being receptive, and so we could choose to walk away because we’re not being receptive. And spirit wants to say, that’s not the worst thing in the world; you walking away from this.
What’s meant to be will be at the end of the day, only you can choose what you participate in. Only you can choose. So let’s go ahead and get some more clarifiers. You’re not going to completely miss out on all your blessings if you choose to walk away from this. It could be that some of you need more time before you’re ready to accept a relationship. We have The Emperor, we have The Fool. So it’s funny, Four Pentacles on top of the deck. What a great confirmation. Four Pentacles and the Three of Wands. Wow, how interesting is it? We have a card here that I pulled Three of Wands, which is about moving forward and expansion the major arcana that most represents moving forward, expansion, embracing new opportunities, embracing a new worldview. And then we have two cards that represent holding on and staying and being determined and being consistent.
So we have two cards that are almost conflicting, but they work really well together. And I feel like that’s what this Two of Pentacles is. From the very beginning of our reading. It’s you moving forward between wanting to be positive and expand and move forward.
However, I feel like for a lot of you, this represents someone who is like, no, I’m not going anywhere. Okay, you want to go on adventures. You want to travel the world. You want to see new horizons, you want to get fresh air. Hey, you need a break from me, okay, go take your break. I’m not going anywhere. I’m not going anywhere. We are building a solid foundation for you to expand on top of in this relationship.
And that’s kind of bringing me back to that message I received earlier, having your cake and eating it too. You can do both. You can do both. You can have a stable, solid foundation with someone. You can have a reliable partner and express and explore yourself to the fullest extent. Wow, that’s really beautiful. So if you’re feeling like, Hey, I need to take a break and walk away from this connection, I think for a lot of you, the person you’re involved with, their response is going to be like, okay, but I’m still here. I mean, you’re always going to have a home to come back to.
Wow. Let’s get a couple more, and then I have Oracles for us to get into. The World. You can have it all. Six of Swords. Clarity. For a lot of us, this is closing out a chapter, closing out a chapter, and having a conversation that brings a lot of relief to the situation. Six of Swords is giving me a difficult conversation or a clarifying conversation of some kind. With the world here, all things are possible. This shows that a season of difficulty is ending. So maybe you were experiencing the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 of Swords before this weekend. Maybe you had to walk away from difficult things in the past. In the recent past. Maybe you even had a situation with your partner where you actually broke up with them or actually decided to walk away from them. But either way, with this situation, I feel like The Emperor of the Four Pentacles, it’s like it’s okay because there’s little fights, there’s little Minor Arcana bumps in the road, but there’s also the bigger picture of your relationship down the line.
And I think that this other person in your situation, maybe this is someone you’re manifesting, they have a solid stable energy. They are looking at the bigger picture, especially with The World here. And so for some of you who are in relationships, the chapter you’re closing or the cycle you’re closing is one of feeling like you’re hesitant or feeling like your heart is closed off or feeling like this isn’t making sense. Grappling with both realities of your past reality and your current reality. And so now finally, there’s integration. There’s wholeness here, there’s an understanding, and you’re living in one paradigm, and that one paradigm is one of clarity. For some of you, you could be going through a breakup. I’m not necessarily seeing breakup cards here, but if you’re, I mean with the Eight of Cups, potentially, this is about the longer spiritual journey. And so I think that as a collective, we’re coming to this acceptance that all things serve a purpose and that at the end of the day, our life and our soul’s journey is much greater than this one situation with this one person.
Okay, so I hope that that makes sense. We have Temperance on top of the deck, so there’s alchemy occurring here, balance occurring here, clarity, divine protection, and divine understanding as well. So you could actually be receiving a lot of downloads this weekend where you just feel divinely inspired to make a certain move, but you have a sense of faith in your heart with the world. There’s a sense of I can create what I want to, and I know I’m supported either way. Either way, no matter what is to come of this. So let’s go ahead and get some Oracle cards for us. This is the Rider Waite Tarot and the Work Your Light Oracle.
Okay, longing for home Belonging, the original. So yeah, wow. Like I said, there’s always a home for you to come back to. For some of you, this is yourself. I know I can always return to center. I know I can always return to my inner sanctuary, and for some of you, this is actually you going on a longer spiritual journey, maybe breaking up with someone and then realizing, wow, I actually do long for that person. I actually am safe with that person. I should actually reconnect with them. Two more please. Spirit, with this belonging message, I feel like someone just really feels you belong together and they’re committed to that. Okay? Don’t take that message as yours if this person’s playing games with you, with someone else right now, okay? If this is your person, they are committed to you. They’re already in the physical 3-D material realms.
They’re already showing you action signs that they are in this to win this star mother. How can you mother yourself? So yeah, taking care of yourself, nurturing yourself, star seeded, what lights you up. I think for a lot of you with this Four of Cups, this is apathy territory. This is blindness here with the Ace of Swords, Queen of Swords. Just having a pessimistic with this reversal, having a pessimistic worldview with this question, what lights you up? I think we need to tap into joy. What does joy feel like? How can we even know what we want in a relationship or what we want out of our partnerships if we don’t even know what makes us happy? Have you ever experienced true joy? Comment down below the answers to these questions. I’m really curious about if you genuinely feel you’ve experienced uninhibited freedom and joy, happiness, what lights you up? I want to know. Comment down below. Okay, we’re going to get one final card.
I’m also looking at this deck. The top of the deck says, keepers of the Earth. It says, you were not alone. Ancient ancestors stand beside you, so know that you’re never alone. Take time to breathe out. Exactly. You’re going to take time, more time to yourself, not that you’re necessarily single forever, any of that, but you’re going to take time to yourself so that you can get clear on what you need, what you want, what you desire, and that’s going to be your compass and help you make any decisions that you need to make. Okay? I am sending you so, so much love. Thank you so much for being here. If you’d like to book a private reading with me, please go to cosmic updates.com/galena. I hope to see you in the future. Bye.
