I can feel Summer coming to an end.
We have had some thunderstorms and the temperature has dropped. It is nice at night to cuddle up under a warm blanket.
After the four weeks of extreme heat I experienced in Italy I am truly enjoying the cool days.
I have been back now for about two weeks and I have been busy.
The garden needed me and it still does.
I spruced up the house.
I also showered my pets with love and affection.
Work has been busy too. Many of the calls have been for Reiki.
People want to recharge and relax and I am happy to help them.
My son is now in Italy, where the heat continues.
My daughter just had four wisdom teeth pulled out, so I am looking after her.
My dog is sleeping on the couch and my cat is sleeping on the ottoman/ coffee table beside her.
Everything is quiet.
It seems like the perfect time to pull out a few cards.
What was the essence of my Summer? King of water.
How can I make the most of what is left of Summer? 9 of fire reversed.
What will Fall bring? 4 of air.
Not particularly happy with the cards I got I pull another one .
How do I transition from Summer to Fall? Queen of Earth.
Three days have passed since I wrote this post and here is my feed back to the Tarot reading.
The King of water was about my focus on listening, observing, being diplomatic and giving time to feelings to sink in.
The 9 of fire reversed had been a bit confusing. It left me thinking my question had missed the mark, since the card spoke not of actions or to do lists, but rather surrender and letting go.
The 4 of air confirmed the need for rest, for time standing still and a need to reflect.
The Queen of earth suggested a shift from water (passive, emotional) to earth, practical. Taking care of business and grounding in nature.
The day after writing the post my back went out. It had been bothering me on and off for about a week and than it snapped.
It left me on the floor, practically unable to move for a couple of hours.
Since then, I have been able to stand, walk, but not sit .
The 9 of fire reversed expressed as overwhelmed.
The 4 of air as forced rest in bed.
I am hoping at this point that the Queen of Earth will express as full recovery and ability to take care of what needs to be done.
