The 6 of Pentacles deals with giving and receiving. Depending on your situation, this card can have different meanings. If you have a need, that need will be met by a gift, donation or through some unexpected source. If you are seeking aid, such as a scholarship or loan, this card is a favourable omen. If someone approaches you for help, you will find yourself in a position to provide it.
The 10 of Wands can be seen as a victory. It signifies that you’ve achieved your goals, but it can also indicate an early ending. This phase of the project is over. You cannot continue in this manner; there is just too much. You feel overworked, overwhelmed and exhausted. This is the time to scale back on your workload. Downsize and delegate. Do whatever you can to lighten the load.
The 7 of Cups represents having too many choices, all of which seem very appealing to you. You are spending time dreaming about them, imagining what each would be like. Still, you cannot pick one. This card includes a hint that might help. You are drawn to these choices emotionally. Set aside those emotions for a moment and invite a little reason into the picture. While emotionally appealing, some of the choices may not be good for you. Choose wisely.
The Magician indicates that it is time to focus on your goals, applying your determination and skill to achieve those goals. Everything you need is available and you have the ability necessary. Move forward with confidence because this card suggests success in your endeavours. This is a magical moment filled with potential just waiting to be realised.
The 8 of Swords represents a situation in which you feel helpless. Problems surround you. You feel trapped and that no matter where you look, danger, obstacles and problems confront you. When you see this card, remember that you do have choices and you do have power. No matter how trapped you feel, you can find a way out if you believe it is possible. Solutions are not always easy, but they exist. Find your clarity of thought and purpose and use them to take the first step home.
The 4 of Swords suggests that you have situations, troubles or problems that need resolution. However, this is not the time to deal with them head on. Rather, it is a time to take yourself away, calm down and heal a bit, so that you can approach your issues refreshed. Quiet, peaceful reflection and meditation will bring clear insight so that you can handle the situation to your benefit. Spend time alone and meditate to release the tension in your body. Do anything that lets you relax and just ‘be’.
The 2 of Swords represents a difficult situation. You are dealing with two conflicting ideas or a challenging decision, but you are not willing to face the situation. You’ve closed your eyes to it. Rather than view it rationally, your emotions are distracting you. This situation would benefit more from a rational decision than from an emotional one. This card can also represent a truce or stalemate. What decision are you not wanting to make? Why? Be decisive.
The Hierophant often represents learning with experts or knowledgeable teachers. This card also stands for institutions and their values. It is a symbol of the need to conform to rules or fixed situations. The Teacher can show that you are struggling with a force that is not innovative, free-spirited or individual. Groups can be enriching or stifling, depending on circumstances. Sometimes we need to follow a programme or embrace tradition; at other times, we need to trust ourselves. Listen to what people have to say, but keep an open mind and take only what resonates with you.
Strength is about understanding your drives and passions. By understanding and accepting them, you can use them to achieve your goals. You can become so self-possessed that you move through your life with a quiet strength that doesn’t need to exert itself needlessly, but it is always ready when needed. This card suggests that now is a time to exert that quiet, yet undeniable, strength. Do you know where you want to go in life? Do something that scares you.
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.
The Queen of Cups has a kind word for everyone and never reacts with anger or impatience. There is a gentleness about her that soothes and calms. Compassion is her watchword. Her reactions to the world are guided by her feelings. She lets her heart lead the way in all matters. Her love embraces everyone and everything. This month, try and think and feel as she does: Are you aware of the emotional climate? Are you feeling loving? Do you trust your heart?
The Page of Wands indicates a creative restlessness, pent-up energy and perhaps some frustration. You have the passion and desire, but aren’t sure how to put it to good use. You could be on the verge of a discovery or new phase of life. The soon you are able to start that new phase, the better. Pages also represent messages – possibly a message about a new job or career, travel or something of a spiritual nature.
