The purpose of drawing a "Week at a Glance" card is to get a sense of the sort of energy, circumstances, or personal qualities I might need to be aware of during the upcoming week. I also use this opportunity to become more familiar with decks I don't work with a lot, so you will often see me quoting the creator of the deck or someone who has a closer relationship with the deck than I do at this time.
For the week of July 14, 2013 I am using The Whispering Tarot by Elizabeth Hazel.

This card is sometimes called the "nostalgia card," and for me, it usually calls my attention to the past from an emotional perspective. Among Liz Hazel's meanings for this card are "memories of the past. . . family ties. . . things that evoke nostalgia." This interpretation resonates with me particularly well for this upcoming week. My daughter (who is in her early thirties) is coming to visit from a long distance away. On Friday we will travel to my son's (her brother's) house and stay for a couple of days. For me, although my past with my son and daughter does contain a lot of happy memories, it also holds sad, painful ones.
From an astrological standpoint, the Six of Cups is associated with the Sun in Scorpio. Interestingly, this is the first time my daughter will be here without her husband. They are separated and preparing to divorce. He is a Scorpio. This suggests to me that his absence and the difficulties in their relationship will also be on my mind this week.
