PDR: Focus of the Week

King of Pentacles

King of Pentacles

Having the daylight’s saving time today made the day so much shorter… so I thought I’ll just do a quick and easy reading for this week.

This week will be my pay period so The King of Pentacles makes so much sense. He is the master of all things related to finances.  He looks excessively focused which can be mistaken for being stern and grumpy.  He stands tall with stable footing which shows that he is a grounded person.  His red nail-polish symbolizes his passion for his goals.  His crown is depicted by a working factory which sits in his head.  This, to me, is what keeps him going.  He is a goal-oriented person which doesn’t let any distractions get in his way.

Looking back two weeks ago… I started my budget.  So far everything is going well.  But this coming pay period, I need to make a few adjustments towards my food budget.  I think this is one of the biggest problems because I don’t usually cook.  I tend to buy stuff from the cafeteria, coffee shops, etc… and these things add up.  My “Wants” category should also be re-assessed because it’s still out of hand.  I need to harness the king’s energy so I can gain control again.

PDR: Moving Out Spread

Moving Out

I was wondering if moving out to a new apartment would be a good idea. I saw some suspicious mold growing in the bathroom and it scared me a lot! If I’m not mistaking it’s a black mold, although I’m not 100% sure. After googling what it is, it seems to be toxic to the human body. This got me worried. I have three choices, 1-clean it myself, 2-use a service, 3-move out!

I just invented a simple “moving out” spread. And this is what I ended up with:

Should I move?

Here is the 7 of Pentacles again. A witch is patiently testing her knowledge of spells. So far she’s doing something right. Pentacles started to bloom from the branches. I really see this card as an auspicious sign of good fortune. The fruits of labor will soon be realized after patience and hard work.

I can relate this card to the savings I am actually gaining from my rent right now. Living in LA, my apartment rent is quite cheap! Long story short, money is not an issue right now.

Pentacles also symbolize the physical and health matters. I think I should observe and assess my health more so now and pay particular attention to my respiratory health. Black molds can cause some serious symptoms and I don’t want ending up sick just because I saved extra dollars.

Should I not move?

In this card, I see a girl lost in the woods. She looks scared, worried and tired. She has a few bruises in her arms and legs… probably from the thorns in the woods. Sevens mean a test or a challenge. In the usual RWS, the card usually shows a man being outnumbered by 6 attackers. But in the DM, we see a more hopeful image. After being lost in the wilderness, she discovered seven magical wands that showed the way out. Her worries are now over.

Moving now seems challenging. I don’t want to get lost in the woods! Applying for a new apartment demands a lot of work, research, and money. And of course, credit checks! It’s too much right now.  I don’t think it’s the right time.  I have to postpone this for something later, but now I have to deal with my problem the old way.

Advice/Outcome

What will keep my peace of mind? As the Ace of Swords, this reminds me to lessen the mental stress. I know the answer but I need to act on it. In this case, I should approach my problem with a simple action. I shouldn’t complicate things any further. So with this advice, I’m knocking down my third option, which is moving out. Maybe postpone it until later this year? Anyway, I just need to figure out if I should do the cleaning myself or just hire someone… =D
