For this week's reading I pulled four cards, the first of which jumped out of my deck and said pick me! Which suggests the supreme influential factor governing the multiple different aspects of this week, the last three cards being the various aspects we can expect to encounter in the coming week.
Oh and for those who are curious all four cards were drawn from the Wildwood Tarot.
Supreme Influence: The Green Man ~ Changes in the Earth
Aspect 1: Ten of Stones ~ Home
Aspect 2: Knight of Vessels ~ Wisdom
Aspect 3: The Moon on Water ~ Inner Transformation
The Green Man's appearance as the strongest influenceof this week calls us to recognize how deeply the environmental changes surrounding us are affecting our daily lives. I live in Canada in the Northern Hemisphere which means that this Wednesday, September 23 will bring the Autumnal Equinox and the festival or sabbat Mabon. The earth is changing, preparing for slumber and reminding us to pull in the last of our harvest and finish our winter preparations before the frost begins to settle. Pay attention to how this seasonal change is affecting your life this week and take a moment to honour the bounty that the earth has provided us.
The Ten of Stones reminds us of the importance of recognizing and honouring the home. Whether this is represented as a physical home, the outdoor environment surrounding us or our social home with our family, friends and loved ones, or all of the above is left up to our own interpretations. But the message remains clear that this week, we need to honour the home and in return it will bring us solace and comfort. The Knight of Vessels melds with The Moon on Water calling us to use our wisdom as inner transformations unfold. Whether those around you or you yourself are experiencing these transformations take time to reflect and draw on your own intuitive wisdom to guide your actions and decisions.
Overall, this week is a time to seek solace in, and honour the home as our wisdom calls us to address our own inner transformations and, or those of others, and further reminds us to honour our larger earthy home as it enters into a time of seasonal change.
