Weekly Tarot - Goals (and Distractions): Week of August 20, 2018
You've been go go GO lately. So far, things have been a little rocky but good overall. This week, to keep the transformation train on the tracks, you're going to have to sift through some big distractions.
Energy surrounding the week: Pluto reversed
Pluto represents death and transformation. He rules the sign Scorpio and reminds us that with death comes renewal and rebirth. The negative aspects of Pluto include an overpowering desire to control people and situations. (Remember poor Persephone.) When things are outside of your control this week, your anxiety will have a tendency to turn into negative thoughts about others and fantasies about what "should be."
How to make this week a success: 10 of Swords and 7 of Cups
Your mantra this should be along the lines of "The grass is not greener on the other side. It's green af right here where I'm standing." Watch your mindset around others this week. It will be easy to misinterpret other people's motivations. The 10 of Swords represents betrayal, but the 7 of Cups points to the illusory quality of that feeling. Assume that people have the best intentions, and remember that you have the power to come unstuck. Additionally, 10s represent the end of a cycle. Something may come to fruition differently than you expect. Getting caught up in those fantasies can leave us reeling when reality hits. You can make things good where you are.
