Every week we’re faced with all kinds of challenges and opportunities. This week we are faced with Temperance as an insight into our challenges and the Four of Swords as an opportunity to look out for.
Temperance as a Challenge
The challenge to look out for this week revolves around balance, self-control, moderation, and patience.
Finding balance in your life may prove difficult this week as well as approaching problems with a calm demeanor. Try not to make too many changes at once as changing things in your life would be best done slowly and gently. You may find yourself separating different aspects of your life this week. Try assimilating those parts of your life that you have been keeping apart so that you might feel more complete
Four of Swords as an Opportunity
The opportunities to look for this week include overcoming challenges, respite, reflection, and recovery.
It’s time to take a break this week! Take some time this week to retreat to your quiet place. Stress causes all kinds of issues with our body and mind so create the space for yourself to relax and just be. Do some meditation by taking a walk out in nature, or find a quiet spot near the water to restore your mental strength and fortitude.
If you must, seek counsel. Go to a trusted friend or someone experienced in the areas you are having trouble to help you work through your battles.
Make this Week Yours!
Although you may face challenges there are so many opportunities at your feet. Rumi said, “There is no bigger enemy for you than yourself”. But always remember that there is no bigger champion for you than yourself. Create space to step into your best and higher self.
