Monday Musings! Today's deck is Caitlin Matthews's Celtic Wisdom Oracle. How can you look at those orange cards and be blue—even if it is Monday! I don't know where you are, but here around The Keep and the Kilndom, we're having amazing weather. It's balmy and pleasant and good for long walks to prepare for the Hadrian's Wall Hike, but I do have to admit I'm getting impatient for swimming pool days!
Last week saw some action in many ways; walking, glazing, cleaning out the studio, cleaning out the garage, and more. This week is a busy one, too, lots to do, the days are long and enticing me to be productive. What will they bring to you? Monthly forecast? Weekly forecast? Daily forecast? It's up to you, you know the drill! Pick the one that calls to you, then read the reveal in the comments for a mini-reading for the week ahead, or read them all as a story-telling spread. Your reading, Your call. I'm just the messenger.. I'm still offering private readings, too, so if you want to know a little more about what the universe has in store for you, hit me up. "I'm here to help."
Left: The Courtship of Skill
You've been waiting for your ship to come in and only ever met with the tied, but if this is your card for the upcoming week, then that luck is about to change. This is a card that represents rewards for your efforts. It's more than wishes come true; this is something you've worked for and you've earned and you're finally seeing the results. It's not time to rest on your laurels, though, oh no. If anything says 'keep going,' this card does. Yes, you're seeing success, but there's more to come. Don't stop just because you're onto a good thing!
Middle: The Keeper
The Keeper does just that; he keeps order. He's the ruler, the leader, the authoritarian. If you chose this card, then it is telling you that it is not time to be a maverick or to step too far out of your comfort zone this week. It's a time for keeping things in an orderly fashion, to keep an eye on the things—and the people—that matter to you, and to stay strong in your sense of self-worth and self-assurance. Stay in your lane, for haters are always gonna hate and losers are always gonna lose until they decide not to. You can't govern their actions, but you have absolute control over the way you respond to them.
Right: The Quest of Battle
If you've been worried about something, if you've been thinking that things couldn't get any worse, well, you're probably right. This card shows you that yes, life sucks sometimes, but your track record of getting through the suck zone is 100% so far, so don't blot your copy book. As a weekly card, the Quest of Battle is asking you to pause, acknowledge how lousy you feel, forget the Law of Attraction and just be real. When you realize that life doesn't always play fair and you're more resilient than you think you are, suddenly everything does not seem to be so gloomy. There's a season for everything, and whatever sucky thing you're going through has its season, so let it be what it is, but remember that you will never be stuck there unless you choose to be—and that would just be silly, wouldn't it?!
