On October 13th, we entered a retrograde with Mercury. This can mean a time of a lot of emotional up and downs, past traumas rearing their heads, and bad decision making. I thought we could all use a reading to help guide us through this time. This retrograde will end on November 3rd.
I decided to pull a traditional reading from my Game of Thrones deck.
Justice – Upright
Upright Justice is the seeker of truth and honesty. Right now, we are all experiencing some emotional turmoil and we need to remember to be honest with ourselves. This is not a time to blow things out of proportion or a time to look harshly at yourself or anyone else, but rather it is time to look inward and be honest with ourselves. We need to be honest about our path and what we are sending out right now. Take some time and look within. This is an excellent time to look into shadow work, listening more, and spending time in nature. Seek the truth within yourself.
Knight of Swords – Reversed
The reversed Knight of Swords is a card that shows is it is time to look inward and slow down. This is not a time to make rash decisions. This card often comes as a warning. We will try to push through situations we know may not be the best, hoping for a better outcome. This card is telling you to slow down and take a look around. Often if when we are on a path not meant for us, we are met with burnout, lack of passion, or difficulty moving forward. You may be feeling anger, frustration, jealousy, or confusion. This is a good time to stop and look within and see why you are feeling that way. Do not blame others for this. Look within yourself. Make sure the path you are on is the right one for you.
Ten of Cups – Upright
The Ten of Cups is a perfect card for looking for the future. When we spend time working on our inner world it is amazing to see how the outer world around us seems to fall into place and peace and happiness in your life start to become apparent. This card urges you to work through the first two cards so you can see a new wholeness transpire. I believe this a post-retrograde card. After that time, this card encourages you to follow your heart and trust your intuition to lead you into the opportunities aligned with the best path for you. You will know when these come because it will feel right and good.
This reading speaks volumes today. I hope this will be a good guide for you during this retrograde. Take the time to look within and work through that then when the metaphorical clouds fade away you will see the opportunities the universe is waiting to show you!
