Today’s reading comes from the Aquarian tarot deck.
Our card for this week is: Nine of Rods
“Find someone who can fill in for you and take time to refresh your energy.
This suit, most often called “Wands” and sometimes called “Rods” or “Staves,” represents initiative, ambition, drive and desire. This is the suit of enterprise and risk-taking.
The Nine of this suit usually indicates a need for rest; some time out to mend wounds and savor victories. Although it may be hard to do, this card would have you leave the field to fresher teammates for now. Release any attachment you may feel to being in a leadership role for now.
In the pictured Tarot decks, the protagonist is shown as too exhausted to be effective in defending his gains, yet resisting the suggestion to ask for help or step down. He or she hasn’t had the chance to totally heal from past blows, and is still up there taking another beating. This is the fix that comes from making oneself irreplaceable. Fight off the maniacal thought that only you can save the day! Stop rejecting loved ones who want to help you.”
Pretty straight forward, I think for me, and probably for you as well. I’ve been feeling pretty worn out and depleted energetically and advice to take time to rest and rejuvenate before I step back into the field of play seems like excellent advice. I just spent yesterday doing nothing much at all for this very reason. It looks like we’re in for a pretty laid back week where we let others pick up the slack for us and give ourselves a little, well earned, break.
