Hello my friends. It is Deco Back again with another weekly reading this time for the week of October 8th through the 14th. You guys know I have been really loving reading Celtic crosses for you guys lately. Mostly because instead of kind of putting in my influence on the readings, I want to do this general reading with something that I like to call a brain check because it kind of points things out that I wouldn’t have thought about before. Maybe having too much focus on a certain area might skew your perception of what’s going on in other areas of your life that you really need to be focused on. Humans are selfish. We like to focus on what makes sense for us, and even me just reading here, I am putting on my own life experiences into these readings, so I want to make it as authentically for you as I possibly can.
And here we go. What do we need to know this week? Remember, a Celtic Cross looks at the past, present, and the future. Specifically in the present, it’s looking at the challenge in the heart of the matter. Then it looks at our unconscious and conscious mind, what’s going on with us, the people that we’re reading for the, the environment that we’re in, our hopes or fears, and the outcome of whatever it’s we need to focus on. Sometimes it’s really clear, sometimes it’s a little murky, so I’ll lay it out there so that it’s applicable for you.
All right, let’s see what we need to know this week, October 8th through the 14th. Okay, so something’s going on in our physical space, that’s for sure, where we’re just feeling a little bit out of sorts, my friends, and I’ll tell you why in just a moment. Okay, so the big challenge right now, my friends is the Queen of Pentacles in reverse.
So when The Queen of Pentacles pops up, especially in reverse, it means that our emotions and our feelings that are tied to our belongings, our stuff, our space, our feeling a little bit out of sorts, the queens are all about feelings and emotion. They’re tied to water, and the pentacles are tied to our stuff, our dominion, the things that we’re in control of our money, our family, our bodies, the things that we’re actually coming into contact with. So we’re struggling a little bit with this queen in reverse to feel like we have a grasp on those things that we are emotionally in tune with the things that we have and the people that we’re interacting with and with our own bodies. And I think the reason we might be struggling with this is because of this heart of the matter, and that’s The Two of Pentacles in reverse. It kind of suggests to me, you can tell that he’s doing kind of a balancing act when it’s in reverse. It means we’re having a hard time balancing the things that we’re doing. Remember, we have Pentacles here, and so the Pentacles, when The Two of Pentacles is in reverse, it’s like we have all of our eggs in one basket and we’re having a hard time juggling everything else because we’re so focused on one area. So maybe we’re being a little bit emotionally drawn to one specific area of our life, but we need to take a step back and look at the larger picture of how we need to change things for ourselves. And I do think we got into this space because there was a lack of inspiration. We didn’t really know what we wanted. We didn’t know what needed our focus.
The fire in our life was kind of dimmed a little bit. And I think part of it was that you might’ve had a lot on your plate because what I’m also seeing here, The Knight of Swords is in your unconscious, which is telling me that you were very focused on some far off goal, something that you needed or felt like you really, really wanted to the point that it didn’t really matter what anybody else had to say. You were going to go for that thing. And maybe that’s why we’re feeling a little off balance too. It’s like you knew you wanted to get somewhere, but you didn’t have very much inspiration or fire in order to get there. So now you have all of your eggs in one basket and you’re like, wait, what went wrong?
And your focus right now with this Ace of Swords in reverse in your conscious is there’s some stress… There’s a struggle to start fresh or have that wake up call. My friend Shauna reminded me that the swords for her, especially The Ace of Swords, is about a spark. It’s about a new idea. So when it’s in reverse, we’re struggling to find that spark. We’re struggling to wake up and realize what is happening around us. And I think once we have that aha moment this season, this week, we’re going to be able to eliminate some things for our lives, from our lives. The Devil is in reverse, and The Devil in reverse means we’re able to see the things that are not helping us, that are not aligned with us, that are keeping us from being able to live our best life. And being in that future position, especially with The Ace of Swords in reverse in the conscious is telling me that there is a wake up call coming and an aha moment where you’re saying, “Oh, I get it now.” Right?
Now, let’s move on to the side here. Nine of Wands is in reverse in the querent position. So querent in tarot means the person that the reading is for essentially. And The Nine of Wands being in reverse in the querent position is telling me that we’re struggling with boundaries. We’re struggling with pushing toward the end of something because we’re letting other people maybe get under our skin or get in our way or kind of weasel through the boundaries that we’ve made for ourselves and for whatever reason, they’re manipulating you in a way that is not helping you to move forward and to go toward those goals. And in fact, they might even be adding to this imbalance. They’re like, “Well, what about this?” “But you said this.” And they’re reminding you of these things that you were focused on, but that maybe you’re not the healthiest for you.
Right? It’s like you made commitments and now we need to consider what we need to do to make sure that we can follow through. I do see that there’s a little bit of fear in our environment, and I’m not entirely sure what this fear is for us, right? Maybe it’s just this fear that we’re going to stay uncomfortable for a little while. Yes. Hello, Cody, that we’re going to stay uncomfortable for a little while, but more likely than anything, it’s just that we’re a little bit fearful of what the future holds for us. There’s a lot of unknowns, there’s a lot of uncertainty moving into these new chapters,
And I think being a little bit fearful is normal, but it’s also holding you back from really investing in these areas of your life right now, your hopes and fears, I would say this is more a fear than a hope is the Three of Cups in reverse. And the Three of Cups in reverse is a feeling like the people around you are not there for you. Or maybe you’re having issues in relationships or with your friends, or with the people that generally would be so supportive and unconditionally loving to you, but for some reason there’s this fear that those are going to fall through for some reason. And wow, there’s a lot going on at my house right now, don’t mind. Anyway, the Three of Cups being in reverse is with that fear and with everything else that’s going on. I feel like in setting boundaries for yourself, you’re maybe a little bit nervous about what happens to those relationships because maybe they don’t get what your goals are.
But what I’m seeing here is it’s very important that we work carefully with the people around us to better ourselves. So I think what I’m taking away from this is you need to connect with people in order to find that balance. But you need to be careful about who you connect with. I do think we have boundaries that we need to make sure are firmly in place, and we need to make sure that we’re getting fear out of the way so that we can move forward, find more balance in our life, and go toward those goals regardless of what anybody else thinks. You’ve got this, I believe in you. Best of luck.
