Hello, my friends at Cosmic Updates. It is Deco back again with your weekly reading, this time for the week of July 16 through the 22nd. So we’re gonna get started shuffling these cards and seeing what you need to know. I hope that this season is treating you really well. I know it’s been a nice little break for myself. I know a lot of people travel during this time of year. So I’m hoping that everything that you’re doing is done with a lot of safety to make sure that you’re okay and the people around you are okay, all of those things.
But let’s see, what can we do this week to make it a really good one? The Three of Pentacles is in reverse already. So let’s start there. Alright, so guys, we’ve got some interesting things going on here. And I think the big issue that I’m seeing, and I already have some guiding questions for more cards that we can pull, but what I’m seeing here is that we’re not being open with how we’re feeling. When the Four of Cups pops up in a reading like this, it’s like we’re, like, I call this the brat card sometimes, right.
It’s like we’re having a hard time accepting that there’s goodness around us if we just, like, interact with it, right. So the Four of Cups is kind of solitary, but by choice. So if we can open up a little bit and start talking about the things that are affecting us and the way that we feel in these situations that maybe don’t feel super great, then I think it’s going to help us because right now I see that you’re being a little bit of a recluse and not letting people see what you need and how you’re feeling and what you’re going through, okay. And I do think that you’re going through a lot, okay.
We’ve got the King of Pentacles in reverse. And this is like a feeling of poverty, of feeling like everything that you need to be in control of being completely out of your hands. And I don’t think that the work environment is helping, or there’s someone around you that you’re trying to work with that is not assisting you on this path. There’s definitely like miscommunications, maybe some confrontation, some aggression. There’s something going on here where things just are not the good vibe.
And I think part of this is that you’re trying to establish firm boundaries with people. The Nine of Wands, when I see it in a reading like this, is all about setting boundaries and knowing when to say no, but also understanding that this is like that last push. So the knowing when to say no comes in when you already have so many responsibilities, right. The Ten of Wands is right after this. And that’s that heavy load that you feel when you’ve been working hard towards something and you’re seeing success, but it still feels like a lot, right.
So the Nine of Wands is knowing when to say no and when too much is too much, right. So there’s this balance here, where you’re trying to set boundaries for yourself, but you’re also not being authentic with the people around you, maybe because it’s feeling a little out of your hands, a little bit out of control.
So what I want to focus on is, like, we know that you’re setting boundaries for yourself, but what do we need to do to kind of fix these, with the vibes that these Pentacles are bringing in? Remember, the Pentacles can talk about your family, they can talk about your health, they can talk about your money, they can talk about your home.
So keep in mind that that King of Pentacles in reverse with the Three of Pentacles in reverse could be some family squabbles, it can also be some issues with your healthcare provider, whoever that happens to be, whether that’s a holistic healer or a doctor. It’s like you might need to be considering for yourself, maybe there needs to be a change of pace, or maybe I’m not telling them really what I need in order for them to be able to help me in the way that I need.
Okay, now, let’s see, what do we need to do to try to fix these relationships or these interactions that seem to not be going super well? What do we need to do to open?
Okay, let’s see, the Queen of Swords popped out in reverse. So let’s see, the Five of Pentacles is here with the High Priestess in reverse, but also the Fool. Guys, this is an interesting reading. So the Queen of Swords popped out in reverse.
So the Queen of Swords is the water of air, which means she is highly empathetic while also like a logical decision maker, right. So when we’re in reverse, it’s suggesting that we’re struggling in those areas, that we’re having a hard time making choices that feel good as well as make sense, right. This is a struggle for us. And I think it’s a lot to do with the people around us.
We might be feeling a little bit left out or feeling like we’re being hung out to dry, even though they’ve told us or shown us that they’re supposed to be willing to step up for us in difficult situations, it’s seeming like that’s not the case. Here’s the thing though, the High Priestess is in reverse, which is telling you there’s a lot of noise around you right now, there’s a lot going on that might be distracting you from the fact that they have presented themselves to you, they have made it abundantly clear that they are there to be there for you.
But the High Priestess in reverse, like this, is like you’re just feeling out of touch, right. There’s too much going on around you. There’s too much that is out of your control right now, with that King of Pentacles in reverse in that last reading, that’s making you feel like you can’t follow those little nudges that you have, you know, that little voice in your head that’s like, “Hey, maybe this would be a better idea for you,” or, “You know what, this is the right path, and this does not feel right.” It’s like you’re not able to tap into that intuition, partially because there’s so many things that are feeling uncomfortable in this chapter, okay.
Now, the Fool popped up for us. And the Fool is about taking a leap of faith and taking a chance. And with all of this, it’s like, I think you’re struggling to do that. You’re struggling to just go for something that feels fun and feels like, “Oh, maybe I should just take a risk,” you know. But this is telling me that you need to.
So let’s pull some cards and think specifically about like, how do we take that leap of faith? What does it look like? When are we going to know that it’s the right thing? You know, the thing about the Fool, though, is like, sometimes you don’t know. And you just take that risk, and sometimes it works out. And sometimes it doesn’t. But hey, at least you tried. Right?
So how do we have this fresh start for us, specifically, because clearly, the people that we’re working with around us are not working very well with us. And it’s making things iffy. So what do we do for ourselves? Okay, yes, three cards fly out of this deck.
Okay, so the Five of Pentacles popped up in reverse this time. We’ve got a lot of Pentacles here, guys. So this is important, having to do with your family. But really, the Pentacles, my friends, remember, are about dominion, the things that are around you, the things that you’re interacting with, the people you’re interacting with, your body, your money, your home, right. So the Pentacles can talk about a lot of different things. So this could mean something different for each person that hears this, right.
Some people might be thinking about family troubles, some people might be thinking about health troubles. Some people might be thinking about work troubles, right. It could be a variety of things. But what I’m seeing is you’re struggling to get along with those people. And we need to now be thinking about: What comes next? How do we fix it? And there happens to be three Pentacles in this reading. So let’s think about it.
The Five of Pentacles is now in reverse in this reading. So how do we jump into that new chapter? We start understanding that those difficult times where we’re feeling maybe left out to dry are coming to an end. Those people that maybe were not stepping up for us, I think are going to realize that you needed more assistance than you maybe led on and are going to start coming out of the woodwork to show up for you in a way that maybe you felt you weren’t getting for a while.
Now, the Seven of Pentacles is in reverse, which is interesting because this is about you not getting the fruits of your labor, not getting the payoff for the hard work that you’ve put in.
But here’s what’s interesting, okay. So the Hierophant is here, and so is the Ten of Pentacles. So the Hierophant is telling me that this is about conformity, this is about becoming part of the larger picture and making sure that you fit into that puzzle that you’re a part of, whatever that means for you. Remember, the Pentacles can be about a lot of different things. So whatever this means for you is for you, right.
So the Hierophant, if we were talking about the healthcare system, I would think like a traditional known remedy, or a traditional treatment, or something that was well-known, right. This isn’t something new, this is something that you’re trying that has been set in place, and it’s something that’s successful, right. If it’s about your family, maybe this is family counseling, maybe this is coming together and working with your family, or it could also mean marriage. If we’re talking about work, maybe this is making sure that you are paying attention to those policies or whatever it is to make sure that you are doing your due diligence to get the reward that you’re looking for. Because right now, it’s not working.
So I think conformity, becoming part of that puzzle that you’re already a part of, but trying to fit in better and make sure that you are doing your due diligence to be a working part of that broader machine, is going to be really helpful for you. And I think it’s going to allow you to meet those goals and see your dreams come to fruition, right. Like the Ten of Pentacles. When I see it, I think of legacy and building a legacy and working toward a long-term goal that is full of abundance and full of light and full of security, right.
So I think the big things that we need to take away from this is, like: Who are you working with that is not your person, your people that you are working toward these goals with? And, but also, how do we take this leap of faith and start thinking about doing something a little bit differently, right?
The Hierophant is suggesting that you need to conform instead of going out on a limb and doing something completely different than you’ve done before. It’s time to reassess and figure out: How do you make it work in the space that you’re already in, right? We’re not moving out, we’re not moving away, you can make it work. It’s just about doing your due diligence and making sure that you are focused on working well with others while also keeping your goals in mind.
Guys, I think that you got it this week, whether it be your health, your family, your job, whatever it is, I know that you have the capability of having that good payoff through the hard work that you’re doing. Just make sure that you are working with others, and I think that you’re going to have a great outcome. So best of luck this week. Make sure that you are looking for opportunities to try something different while also thinking about working well in that larger team. You’ve got this. Best of luck.
