07/08-10/16 WEEKEND: Two of Pentacles, Ten of Swords, Eight of Cups

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))


The short week has been a heartbreaking roller-coaster and we welcome the chance to take a breath, however brief it may be. Have a seat, put your feet up for a few minutes and slowly sip your tea – peppermint or chamomile, your preference – but do not get overly comfortable. Once the tea is done, you must stand up, roll up your sleeves and get to work.


Do not let the cards frighten you; it looks worse than it is. We have been working very hard – struggling really – to maintain balance in all areas, and largely failing rather miserably (unbalanced budgets, nerves worn thin, physical and emotional exhaustion, resistance low). Gratefully, we are moving away from “I think I can! I think I can! I think I can!” and into “I GIVE! Well, that sucked. So glad it’s over.” and that is good because we can move on to new things. We know we went about it all wrong, working hard rather than smart. Since that did not work despite our best efforts, we will take a brief rest and start again, with renewed purpose, renewed vigor and an entirely new plan – we learned along the way and now we are ready to apply it.

If you notice others are following your example, be gracious as you stay the course of your own path, and be grateful for every step you are able to take (literally and figuratively) remembering it is not true for everyone.
