Hello my friends. It is Deco, back again this time for a weekly reading for the week of October 15th through 21st. So let’s jump into this. I’m all about the Celtic Crosses lately. I want to focus, especially as we’re about to enter Scorpio season on us, how do we stay grounded? What do we need to know? Let’s do the Celtic Cross and see what it tells us. Alright? Okay.
Let’s put that card right on top. Yes. Alright, interesting. Okay, my friends, so let’s dive in. First of all, we’ve got the Six of Wands in the challenge. So the Six of Wands is generally someone being on a pedestal. This guy’s literally in a parade. He has a laurel. It means that he is successful, he’s won something and he is having a claim. But when it’s in the challenge, maybe we feel like we’re not getting the credit that we’re due, right? Or maybe we’re getting unwanted praise. Maybe we’re the center of attention and that’s just not our jam. Maybe we’re more introverted and struggling to accept the accolades that we’re getting. But what I’m seeing here is you’re acting like everything is fine.
The Knight of Cups is in reverse. In the heart of the matter, and the Knight of Cups is someone who kind of puts up a front about how they’re feeling is inauthentic, maybe even leads some people astray as far as how they’re feeling and how they’re interacting with those people. You might say one thing, but feel another thing. And I think this absolutely makes sense with the Six of Wands universe, right? It’s like we’re getting all of this praise and we’re like, thank you, thank you, thank you. But then you go home, you’re like, “That was overwhelming. That was too much. I can’t deal with that. Sorry.” We can’t have these two next to each other.
Anyway, so we’re putting up this front. We’re acting like everything’s okay when we’re really uncomfortable, and I think part of that is that deep down you’re trying to move into your own chapter. It’s not that you don’t necessarily want attention, but it’s the type of attention that you’re getting doesn’t feel right in your current environment because you’re trying to start fresh. The Two of Wands is in your conscious, and the Two of Wands is about making plans for a new beginning. The word that I think of when I see the Two of Wands is novelty. Doing something completely new, something that you’ve never done before and trying things out. So if you’re trying to do something completely different for yourself, but you’re getting complimented on things that you feel like belong in your past, maybe that’s a little bit uncomfortable. You’re trying to establish yourself outside of this space that you used to be. And I do think you’ve been trying very, very hard to set boundaries for yourself.
The Nine of Wands being in the past is like you’ve been working to set those boundaries and maybe you’re getting a claim because of the boundaries that you’ve set, but more likely I feel like you are getting some sort of attention for something that you don’t want attention for. But setting those boundaries and being real is going to be huge for you. That Knight of Cups in reverse and acting like everything’s okay is not healthy, and I think it’s something that you need to address in your life. Okay? Now, in the future position, we have the Ace of Pentacles, which tells me there is something coming that is worth investing in something that you’re excited about or will be excited about, and something that you can see causing something greater to happen in your life. Something that’s exciting and again, new, but something that’s going to take time to establish and nurture in order to see it become something more. Okay? Now, this is all dependent on you, my friends. Again, you’ve been setting these boundaries, you’ve been doing these incredible things for yourself, and you need to keep doing it, right? You are the master of your life. You are the leader of your life, and you are in charge of making these things happen for yourself based on your passions.
The Emperor is tied to fire. Fire is all about passion, but The Emperor is decisive too. He doesn’t let other people get in his way when it comes to making big choices for himself and doing things for the betterment of not just himself but the people around him too. There’s no excuses you’re going to do it, and I think you just need to claim that energy. Okay? Now we’ve also got the Ten of Swords in the environment and the Ten of Swords in the environment is again about an ending. Remember, we talked a lot about moving out of one space and into a new one, trying to claim our own space, and the Ten of Swords is saying that whatever that last chapter was, it’s done. You’re in that new space, and maybe that’s part of why you’re struggling with this acclaim that you’re getting from this group that you’re trying to separate yourself from because you want that chapter to be done.
You found that you are settled where you want to be and you are where you want to be, and you don’t want to be pulled back in by people who have previously manipulated you or gaslit you are just not treated you how you wanted to be treated or maybe just had different beliefs than what you were aligned with, and that’s okay. Sometimes we need to set boundaries with people. Okay? Now, hopes and fears. I think this is a hope more than a fear is Judgement. I think you are hoping that the choices that you’ve made are solid choices. That the things that you’re leaving in the past are things that should be left in the past and that are going to be beneficial for you in the long run to not having your life anymore, because Judgement is all about moving forward and leaving the things in the past that belong there.
So I think your hope is that all of this work that you’ve been doing for yourself, all of these boundaries that you’ve been making and this effort that you’ve been putting into claiming this chapter is all worth it, right? Is that every choice that you’ve made has led you to where you are right now and that it was a positive thing for you and not something that’s going to leave you hurting or unhealthy. Right now, I do see that all of these changes were overwhelming, okay? Your outcome is The Star in reverse, and if you know anything about the Major Arcana, you know that The Star follows The Tower, and The Tower is those crazy changes that we go through. But all of these changes, these choices that you’ve made could be tower moments, right? The Tower, when we think of the imagery of the tower, it’s a tower that’s literally crumbling. Oftentimes it’s shown being struck by lightning in one of my decks. It’s like a house just on the edge of a cliff that’s about to tumble into a sea, but The Tower is about an uncomfortable change. Maybe not an expected one, but a transformational one that is not comfortable in the process. And I think you’re still feeling the dust settling, but the dust settling will reveal that all of it was worth it, right?
The Judgement card being in that hope position, I think that the things that you’re hoping for are already happening. I just think that the fact that everything is still a little bit chaotic, things are still a little bit crazy, that we’re just having a hard time knowing that the choices that we’ve made were worth it because we’re a little bit uncomfy right now, but the dust is settling. Things will lighten up a little bit, and I think that light at the end of the tunnel is right there on the horizon. You just need to keep your eyes open and keep going towards your goals. Don’t sink. Make sure that you are focused on your long-term goals so that you can make ’em happen. This is your chapter. Claim it. Alright, my friends, I hope that you had a wonderful week this week. I hope that this next week is super positive and that you’re able to set firm boundaries for yourself. Own this chapter, try some new things and see what happens. Best of luck and I will see you next week.
