Notes by Nectar

Your destiny lies in your own hands

Your week ahead (4-10 August 2019)

on August 3, 2019

I’m now offering two types of personal tarot readings by email: monthly insight readings and weekly love readings! You can also follow me on Facebook and Instagram for daily tarot guidance and interactive fun.

Aries

The 6 of Swords represents moving from rough to smooth. You are leaving a bad situation and heading towards resolution. Although you are headed in the right direction, this card reminds you to remember the troubles you’ve gone through and to learn from them. They are all opportunities for gaining wisdom. This card can also suggest a trip or change of scenery.

Taurus

The Sun brings a simple message of joy. After travelling through the long, dark night of soul searching, you emerge into the light. All your journeys, all your spiritual seeking, all your sincere efforts now pay off. You are able to see where you were and where you now stand. Your mind is clear and sharp. Energy fills you and you are ready to let the light of the sun warm you. This card brings great joy, clear truth and well-deserved success. It also indicates music or science or anything requiring sound reasoning and logic.

Gemini

The Knight of Wands is impetuous, impatient, generous and ambitious. He is willing to go anywhere and do anything and is happiest when he has a clear goal. He is probably very popular and the type of person people like to be around. On the other hand, he can be unreliable. Because he is impatient and impetuous, he can lose interest in the task at hand and run after the next shiny new challenge. Use this Knight’s energy to your advantage. If you’re in a rut, try something new. If you get bogged down by details, try winging it for a change. Again, on the other hand, if you’re angry and impatient all the time, or cocky rather than confident, it may be time for a change.

Cancer

The 9 of Pentacles represents the achievement of good things. Not only have you prospered, but you’ve done so in a way that you feel good about. You appreciate and cultivate the best of everything life has to offer, physically, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually. This card can also indicate the enjoyment of simple but decadent physical pleasures and treats.

Leo

The Knight of Cups’ sensitive style is involved in a situation as an aspect of you, someone else or the atmosphere in general. Follow your heart and see where it takes you. Instead of dreaming, get up and do what your heart desires. Do you express yourself fully to people around you, even the ones that you are close to? If not, what holds you back? Tell someone how you really feel this week.

Virgo

The Wheel represents an unexpected change in your plans, a conflict of interest or an idea ready to materialise. Whatever happens will be beyond your control. This card advises you to get ready for something new. Don’t be rigid with your plans at this time, but prepare to go with the flow. Take any events that occur in your stride, whether they are positive or negative. If things are good, enjoy! If things aren’t so good, know that it will not be forever.

Libra

The Hanged Man can represent, very simply, sacrifice. You may be asked to give up something for the sake of someone or something else. This card can also indicate the need for a change in thinking of a new point of view. Or it can be a more spiritual activity, one where you give up something of yourself to gain spiritual wisdom. It can also mean, almost literally, a time of suspension, a time where you should do nothing at all. There may be a need for a new perspective – things seem very different when looked at from a different point of view.

Scorpio

The Page of Cups is Cupid bringing you opportunities for love. He delivers real chances to experience romance, deep feelings and the inner life. In readings, this Page suggest that an opening may appear that stirs your emotions, pulls at your heartstrings or brings you great joy. When you see such a chance, act on it! Take some time out to do something creative, maybe read a book about poetry, sign up for an art class or spend some time with a child and let out your own inner child. Have fun!

Sagittarius

The 4 of Pentacles indicates that you are secure, in that you have what you need, but you’re holding on to it and not wanting to share, whether it’s money, possessions or love. You’re afraid of not having enough or that someone may take it away so you’re withholding. Relax and stop penny-pinching – you have enough to go around. By holding on so tight, you’re blocking anything else coming in – you’re telling the Universe that you don’t have enough. You might feel as if you’re being controlled by another or perhaps you’re holding on to a situation that no longer serves you because it gives you security. Don’t be afraid to let go.

Capricorn

The World is about big achievements. It promises the wonderful conclusion of long-term projects and the realisation of goals. Success, completeness, satisfaction and fulfilment are woven into your life. It’s time to fully close the door on the past and move to the next stage of your life. This card can also indicate major trips and extensive travel.

Aquarius

The 5 of Cups shows a time of difficulty and loss. More specifically, it is about how you deal with loss. Every loss initiates change and is an opportunity for growth. Loss hurts because of our emotional resistance to change. This card represents that moment. But it carries a word of advice: look at the wonderful opportunity around you and move forward.

Pisces

The King of Swords is a man of intellect who can absorb and work with information of all kinds. As a master of reason and logic, he analyses any problem with ease. He works out solutions quickly and explains them lucidly to others. In chaotic situations, he cuts through the confusion and provides the clarity needed to move forward. He is always truthful and can be relied on to handle any situation fairly and honourably. This week, take the kinds of actions he might take: telling the truth; thinking up a solution; communicating well; judging fairly.
