This week is going to be a doozy so hold onto your hats hipsters! I'm using the Cosmic Tarot, and I kind of think this is why we got such a heavy reading this week. I love how different decks give us a different energy, and this deck is one of those kicking us in the butt decks. Hey, sometimes we need that!
Start of the week – Nine of Swords reversed
There are a lot of outside influences this week that are getting in at us. We might be feeling anxious or stressed about stuff going on in our lives, but we have to remember that it has nothing to do with who you really are! Get protected this week, visualise a bubble or shield of some kind around you before you leave the house. Try to let go of this “stuff” by putting it into perspective. You need to leave work at work, leave the issues with your ex with your ex. Don't bring other people's negativity into your space.
Middle of the week – The World
Oh how wonderful! The World here is reminding us how beautiful and amazing the world really is. Go outside and breathe, look up from your iPhone for once! The world is fricking amazing and really, we are so lucky to be here. Spend some time in the awe of it this week. Again think about putting things into perspective. Sure you have stuff to do, but what can be left until tomorrow in exchange for time spent with loved ones today?
End of the week – King of Pentacles reversed
OK this is going to weird people out. I really think it's time to take a break from all the abundance manifestingand just be thankful for what we have right now. Having goals and trying to achieve stuff is great, don't get me wrong, it's awesome to be working towards big stuff! But I think sometimes we get so into manifesting money and success that we forget to take stock of what we've already done and what we have. Spend some quality time with people you love this weekend and really freaking appreciate them. If you have food on the table, a roof over your head and someone to call when you feel sad you are doing pretty bloody well. Don't forget that.
Bonus card – The Lovers (OoOooooh!)
So this card was facing the wrong way round when I took my deck out, and I totally don't remember leaving it like that! Again this is a message to spend time with loved ones this week. If you are single it's a good week to have a crush on someone new or talk to that hottie patottie who makes your soy decaf latte. If you're in a relationship put aside all that “outside stuff” for a night and go on a date! The lovers card isn't just about romance either, it can be about any kind of love - love for your pets, love for your job or love for a passion that you have! You may just want to really spend some time doing what you love this week.
So this week is really all about doing a little soul searching, working out what's really important to us, the stuff that doesn't have a cash price. It's about showing love to those you love and stopping and smelling the roses. The world is an amazing place and life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while you might miss it.
In other news I'm heading off to sunny Australia next week and although I wanted to pre-write and record a bunch of readings for you for while I'm gone I've decided to give myself a little self care treat and recharge my energies so I can come back fresh and ready for a new chapter in the New Age Hipster story, including the weekly readings getting a little shake up! If you've been thinking of ordering a reading from my Etsy Store you need to get in quick sticks! I have some slots available early this week, but I will be going on vacay mode on Wednesday (18.3.15)! I'll still be on Facebook and Instagram posting loads of photos of kangaroos, Aussie themed tarot decks (I hope I can find some!), Melbourne coffee, sparkly things and beaches! I'll still do mini insta-readings though so stay in touch!
