24 Aug Take It Slow | Weekend Tarot Love Reading | 8/25 – 8/27
Could a negative outlook be getting in the way of your love life right now?
This weekend, Galena the Mystic says it’s a perfect time to slow down, tune into your body, and reorient your mind in a more positive direction.
She’s here to help you navigate the frustrations that may be cropping up, so you can see your love life with fresh eyes.
Hi, beautiful souls here at Cosmic Updates. It’s your intuitive tarot reader, Galena the Mystic, and I’m so excited to bring you another weekend love reading, and it feels like the vibe is changing. We are shifting out of Venus retrograde and more into Mercury retrograde and also summer’s ending here in the Northern Hemisphere. So it just seems like we have an opportunity to transition out of an energy that we may have felt stuck in for quite a while. It is definitely giving intuitively this sense of resolve and a little bit more peace. Things kind of feeling smoothed out in some sense. And if you’ve made any sort of decision recently, it seems like there’s almost like a somber energy around it, but an acceptance at the same time. So let’s get into it. We have the Nine of Wands reversed and we have seen this before in recent weeks, so I’m really seeing here this hesitancy and again, almost a weariness. So let’s talk about this.
We have the Seven of Pentacles, and it’s interesting that the Seven of Pentacles comes out at a time like this seasonally because the Seven of Pentacles is all about harvest. And so with this Nine of Wands reversed, it seems like we’re worried about our investments if we’re investing into the right areas, if it’s paying off and it’s not as much of a heady energy like in weeks before that I’ve been channeling, it seems like we’ve moved some of that anxious overthinking or anguish sort of energy. It seems like it’s moving down into the body or we’re taking on more of almost a serious tone when it comes to what we’re looking at. So there’s this question of, “Have I made the right investments?” And just almost like a sort of cynical energy is what I’m picking up on.
Let’s go ahead and get some more clarifiers. What do we need to know about our love lives this weekend? With the Seven of Pentacles, I definitely feel like it’s a time to be patient. It seems like anything blocking the success of some of your manifestations right now when it comes to your love life, it seems more internal. So let’s get more information about this. Okay, we have two cards. We have the Chariot reversed and the Knight of Swords also reversed. There’s this huge message about take it slow, take it slow, take it slow. For the health and sustainability of your connections, take it slow. There’s no need to rush into anything. There’s no need to rush into conflict. Even if you see something that might be a little bit of, I want to say, a beige flag or a yellow flag, I’m not getting red flag energy from this situation. If something strikes a chord within you, don’t rush to address it. I feel like with the Seven of Pentacles, some problems or some of your concerns in your love life are actually going to be resolved on their own.
You’re not as much of an active participant. That’s just what this is giving me. You’re not as much of an active participant in some sort of conflict as you usually would be. Maybe you are typically the type of person where if you see something is wrong, if you notice that your partner is going through something quite difficult, you are the first person to bring it up in conversation and ask them if they’re okay and kind of trigger the conflict. Does that make sense? Please comment down below and let me know if that makes sense. But there’s just this feeling that this weekend you’re actually being told to take more of a backseat, and we’ve talked a lot about you being the driver in your own life and being the leader in your own life and making decisions for yourself from an empowered place. But this weekend I almost feel like that’s part of this vibe switch is we’re allowing things to slow down a little bit. We are not as on top of circumstances we want to see manifest or want to see change.
It seems like you’ve already kind of set your intentions and now it’s time with the Seven of Pentacles to kind of hold steady, hold steady because the Chariot reversed can give this feeling of not being balanced, not being centered, not necessarily making decisions from a place of mental peace and confidence and trusting in the seeds you’ve planted before. So some of you I think are coming to terms with some sort of realization in your relationship in which you’re realizing your foundation is not quite as stable or steady or your mind here with this Knight of Swords reversed, your mind tells you that it’s not steady and stable, and so you kind of start to question this investment you’ve made in your connection. However, I feel like things are actually good. We have the Two of Cups on the top of the deck, so it seems like there’s harmony here.
Let’s see what’s on the bottom. Four of Swords reversed. So I think some of you could be overwhelmed, anxious about other circumstances that don’t have to do with your love life and some of you just need a break. Some of you just need healing and rest and recovery time. It seems like maybe because this energy is blocked here with this reversal, maybe you’re not getting the adequate rest and meditation time and reflection time, and so maybe it’s causing your mind to run away from you a little bit. And so maybe you’re not seeing this Two of Cups clearly. My advice to you is to take it easy. That’s my advice. Let’s get a couple Oracle cards as well.
Okay, voiceover Galena here. I just have to clarify, I feel like the way this message came through was really confusing and I think it’s because there’s a difficulty accepting what’s true in this connection, which is stable, mutual respect and care. But it seems like there’s almost like this commitment to seeing things in a negative light and also a rush into trying to fix conflict or trying to resolve things before you’re truly ready to respond in a conscientious way. So just be careful, don’t rush into anything. And I also want to share the message that time heals all wounds, as cliche as that sounds, that really is what these cards are representing. Also, some of you just really badly want to know if you and your person are right for each other or if you guys really, really love each other, if you like each other even, and it’s like something that just needs to be built with time.
You have to find out. And there’s this message coming through as I’m editing this video that really what spirit I feel wanted me to express more than anything was that the most important love relationships come through choice, the choice to forgive each other, the choice to choose each other every day. It’s not just like this instantaneous like, “Boom, we just know we’re going to be together forever.” Sometimes that happens. It’s very, very rare, but even if you have that initial spark with someone, you still have to till the soil and plant and be in that Seven of Pentacle’s energy where you actually plant the seeds so that your relationship can thrive. So if you’re in a relationship where you and your partner are focused on the day-to-day right now and things are stable and comfortable with you guys and you’re asking, “Oh, are we going to end up together?” The answer is like, “Yeah, if you keep investing in it and keep tilling the soil as you have been,” but not if you let your fears get the best of you. And then repeating cycles and sabotaging the situation.
Pillar of Light, Descent of the Star of Isis. And so this card actually talks about just allowing more light energy in. So you might feel really called to just get your vibe right and open up to a higher perspective when it comes to the situation at hand. Understand that you are not meant to make such rash decisions in connections. You’re not meant to push for anything. You’re not meant to dominate. This whole situation generally is a win-win situation. That’s what you’re manifesting. You’re manifesting harmony, you’re manifesting mutual respect and trust. So this is a win-win, I think. And we have the Hermit actually under that. And then under that we have the Star too. So I just think that it’s a time for you to really rejuvenate, and that’s part of this Pillar of Light as well, is allowing healing from above to kind of enter your energy field.
I’m covering this so that I don’t get in trouble. Allowing healing from the higher realms to kind of enter your energy field. Also finding your divinity within because that’s what the Hermit’s lantern represents. It represents inner light and shining a light on your own shadow and your own wounds in order to kind of allow there to be peace and serenity in a situation. It does seem like a lot of the conflict that’s occurring is purely just in your mind or in your body, and it’s not necessarily an accurate indicator of what’s possible here. We also have Power of Seven Scorpions or Power Over Seven Scorpions, the power to conjure lower vibrational forces. And so this card talks about being able to accurately name the poison to see what’s wrong. I think some of you could be inaccurately naming the poison in a certain conflict, maybe blaming the other person for a certain circumstance, maybe blaming yourself for a certain circumstance.
There’s just some sort of misunderstanding when it comes to what you believe the issue is in your connection. For a lot of you, the issue is just letting your mind get away from you and rushing things, rushing to try to get a certain outcome, not really maybe seeing the value in what it is you do have, not resting enough, not taking care of yourself enough. And then also just not trusting with this Seven Scorpions card, not trusting fully, maybe not even trusting yourself fully or not trusting your guides fully, that they have your back in this situation or not trusting that someone else has your back or trusting that you have your own back.
It’s not necessarily what is actually going on. Let’s get one more from the Isis Oracle. We have wings of Isis uniting with the angelic self. So you are developing a better relationship with your higher self and also in order to do that, you need to integrate more of your shadow self too. There’s a sort of a self-compassion and understanding of like, “Okay, I understand.” I think some of you’re having this realization of like, “Oh, I’m the problem.” So we were having that realization, but you’re not meant to beat yourself up for it at all. This is actually really important. I love that these two cards came out together because in order to access more of your angelic self, you have to understand and develop compassion for more of your shadow self and see your shadow self more accurately, understand how to take that energy and alchemize it into peace and compassion.
And I think that plays a huge role in your love life as well, because in order to accurately love somebody and accurately appreciate someone for who they really are, you’re going to have to see their shadow too. So what could be happening for some of you as well is that you’re seeing the shadow side of this other person that you’re involved with, and you have to, even though the Hermit is a card about the self and self-inquiry, I think both of you could be in this energy because it could even be you taking this lantern into their psyche, if that makes sense. As you’re getting to know each other, it’s like you are shining divine light into their dark shadow space as well, and they’re kind of doing the same for you. It seems like that’s mutual. And so it’s helping you to elevate this circumstance.
If you’re in a toxic dynamic where you’re bringing out the worst in each other, I don’t think this message is for you this week. Maybe you can take something away from it. So I don’t want to discourage you from taking anything away from it, but it seems more like there’s mutual desire to grow. There’s self-inquiry happening on both sides, and it’s just I think coloring this chapter of your relationship with a more somber tone. But actually what’s happening is really beautiful. It’s really actually divinely orchestrated. So notice if you’re in a relationship right now that feels really healthy and stable, notice how you are aligning more with your higher self. Notice if your sense of faith is growing. Notice, if you suddenly have an urge to just challenge yourself in new ways and see things differently generally, outside of love, see the world differently, or if your relationship to your work changes, that’s a really big sign that this person’s energy is helping you to realize and actualize more of yourself.
So we also have Enter Chamber of Healing. So I feel like that’s bringing me back to this Four of Swords. Make sure that you’re just being very patient with yourself, being patient with your person, being patient with this whole process, because I think that it’s really a time for you to just be gentle with yourself and allow things to flow from a place of just being super detached and understanding and compassionate as well. So with that being said, I’m sending you so much love and I’m wishing all the best for you in your love life this weekend. Take care.
