Judgement provides a call. You are being called to face your past before moving on. It is time to acknowledge whatever has happened, accept it, and let it go. You have learned so much and been through so much, you now have the wisdom and strength to free yourself from the past. A time for change is at hand – perhaps a new job, a new relationship or a new way of life. You’re in control and have decided to heed the call. You have the experience and knowledge to move forward. You just have to make your final farewells.
The Queen of Swords will always tell you exactly how it is. Above all else she admires honesty, and she lives by her commitment to being truthful. She is experienced in the ways of the world, good and bad. She prefers being straightforward and direct. Her observations are candid, but never hurtful. In fact, this Queen has a delightful sense of humour. She likes a good laugh and always has a witty comeback ready. This week, think and feel as this Queen does. For example: Are you being completely honest? Do you see the humour in the situation? Are you getting right to the point? Have you figured out what’s really going on? Say no to the things you really don’t want to do but usually end up doing to please others.
The 9 of Wands implies that you are tired. Exhausted, in fact. You can’t imagine going on one more step. But you are encouraged to do so. Not only are you almost there, but you have the strength to get there. Tap into that core of determination you have and make that final push. All that you’ve set out to achieve is just within your grasp.
The Ace of Pentacles brings with it the gift of luck, an opportunity for material gain or improved health. It is solid and grounded and represents something practical and dependable. This is the seed of good things to come. Use the energy of this moment to start a new project, make a small investment or start a fitness programme. You have the opportunity to grow something wonderful. This card can also represent the arrival of some unexpected money or material item.
The Lovers represents a choice to be made. More importantly, it represents different ways to make decisions. When this card comes up, you are being asked to consider carefully how you make the important decision before you. Do you follow your heart? Do you do what makes sense? This card suggests that there’s a way to marry the head and heart so that wise, balanced decisions can be made. Weigh up the consequences of each of the choices before making your decision.
The 3 of Pentacles is a sign that all is going well. If you have started a new business, embarked on a new project or begun a new health and fitness routine, you are seeing the signs of progress and even of prosperity. You’ve paid attention and done the best you can. You are getting attention and probably reimbursement for your work. Not only is the external recognition satisfying, but you are also finding much personal fulfilment in your endeavours. Be proud of what you do and how you do it.
The 7 of Pentacles tells you to take a break. You’ve done all you can do for now. Just like the farmer who has planted, weeded and watered, you must wait for time to do the rest. You cannot force it. This card indicates that your careful efforts, planning, resourcefulness and research will pay off. When the harvest comes, it will be a good one.
The Ace of Wands shows that a bold seed of enthusiasm has been planted in your life although you may not recognise it yet. When the seed sprouts it could take almost any form. It might be a creative idea, a surge of optimism or a need to act boldly. It could also be an offer, gift, opportunity, encounter or synchronistic event. This week be daring and brave. Sometimes you have to risk to get what you want. Seize the initiative and let your enthusiasm take you to new heights. A time of passion is beginning.
Perspective (The Hanged Man in most traditional decks) 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.
The Death card rarely refers to physical death, which is some comfort. Death, whether physical or metaphorical, is not an easy experience. This card implies the end of something, perhaps a job, a relationship, a situation, an organisation. The actual ending will likely be hard, but once it’s over the cycle continues and something new will come. On the other hand, it may be a welcome closure, such as ending a bad relationship, quitting an unhappy job or selling a house to get a new one. On a spiritual level, this can mean a symbolic death where you eliminate old beliefs that no longer work for you and perhaps were holding you back. Death is usually hard, but it must happen before transformation or resurrection occurs.
The 5 of Wands is a card of combat, competition and strife, so be prepared. In this situation, people bring their different agendas and desires. Not all can be accommodated, so they have to fight it out to see what will be kept and what will be eliminated. You need to understand and respect your competition, to be confident in what you are fighting for and to conduct yourself with skill.
The Devil is rarely a pleasant card. It suggests bondage or addiction to a dangerous practice, substance, situation or person. Less extreme and less dangerous, it can represent overindulgences of any sort – eating, drinking, sexual activity, staying up late and so on. These may be healthy and this card could serve as a reminder to adopt more moderate practices. Being held captive by your passions might feel like fun for a short time, but such imbalance is never a good long-term plan.
