Fafa and I are heading to Mornington Peninsula, Victoria’s winery region, for a much needed weekend getaway.
While waiting for him to get ready and do his last-minute packing 🙄 I pulled a few cards to re-create my go-to travel spread.
- My vibe during the trip
- The trip’s energy
- Something to focus on or be mindful of during the trip
- A must (do/see/experience) on the trip
- The trip’s highlights
- Lesson learned from the trip
Here is my reading for this trip —
My vibe during the trip: Ace of Swords (R)
I feel like I am going on this trip with highly-strung energy. Not the good kind. These past few days have been a bit too much. I have started feeling the tiring Thursday energy since Tuesday morning, dragging myself to get through the rest of the workweek. And the reversed position confirmed it.
I let out a relieved sigh when I flipped open the Four of Swords.
Resting, relaxing and taking a pause.
Thank God! I am ready to absorb the restful energy served by the trip.
The guide books says to:
Release (my) inhibitions, get fired up and be unapologetically alive.
I can only interpret it to get the fire-place going and get all warm and cozy near it tonight.
A must-do on the trip: Strength
Strangely I interpret this to explore the nature around the are. Maybe I can do it during my planned morning run tomorrow.
The highlight of the trip: Explorer of the Swords (Knight of Swords)
Lesson from the trip: Guardian of The Swords (Queen of Swords)
It looks like this trip is going to be dominated by the Swords energy. From my own vibe to the lesson to learn from the trip. Even the Strength from the Spacious Tarot deck is depicted by prickly cactus, and if I push it, the Wands hold by the tail of the Salamander (to focus on) looked like a sword.
Which means, I might have to put my drink-all-the-wine-all-the-way-to-our-Airbnb-until-I-pass-out plan on hold and embrace the what looks like might be an intellectually stimulating trip?
I packed a couple more books and an extra pen anticipation extra journaling time.
I also told Fafa, not to his delight, to be prepared for deep conversations and mini self-discovery sessions, in case we are called to do so. He finally agreed, only after I promised to draw him a bubble bath at the end of the day.
