The Emperor is about being in control. You are, or you should be, in control of your life, your environment, your body, your temper, your actions. You, and you alone, should be in control of your life at this time. This card gives you permission to be assertive, brave and bold. If you have already built a solid foundation, this card indicates that your goals will be realised. This card could also represent a leader that you admire and want to follow.
The 8 of Cups represents a very small but powerful moment in time. You’ve decided to leave something comfortable behind and you’ve come to terms with that. You’ve decided what dream you’re moving towards. This moment, the one where you finally turn your back forever and before you take the first step, is the 8 of Cups. It can be such a conflicted moment, filled with sadness over leaving, yet knowing you are doing the right thing. You no longer need to be linked to this difficult person or situation – but walking away requires great strength and courage. Are there any relationships or values draining your energy from which you need to walk away?
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.
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 Empress shows a time of natural growth. Your role is to nurture without forcing or neglecting your project. Pay attention to where you are in the cycle of your project or situation and take the proper steps. There is great potential for abundance if good care is given. This may require action on your part or it may require a time of waiting. The Empress encourages you to strengthen your connections with the natural world – keep your feet planted firmly in the Earth. She offers an array of delights – food, pleasure, beauty. She also suggests material reward but only with the understanding that riches go with a generous and open spirit.
The 7 of Swords represents the desire to run lone and free – to abdicate responsibilities and do whatever you please! You sometimes feel that you will be more effective and comfortable on your own. If you do feel inclined to act alone, be sure that this isolation really works for you. Perhaps you’re running from something? Commitment, responsibility, hard work? You could be procrastinating because you just don’t want to deal with a certain situation. Running away and burying your head in the sand is not a solution.
The 2 of Cups promises a strong and passionate relationship. Such a relationship brings beauty and power to life. While this can be a romantic relationship, it can also mean any such union of people, groups, ideas or talent. The key here is the coming together of two things that creates a third thing that is, in and of itself, powerful, beautiful and passionate. Let your most important relationships know how much they mean to you.
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.
The Page of Swords represents someone who is curious and wants to know everything. This card suggests you open up your thinking. It is an ideal card for problem-solving and thinking out of the box. Look out for messages about problems, solutions and perhaps some gossip. Be patient and don’t rush into anything. Listen to what people have to say with a rational head – don’t take things too personally.
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 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.
The Queen of Pentacles is very down-to-earth. She loves to garden, cook, bake, sew or anything that can make her environment more beautiful, comfortable and efficient. And she is good at everything she does. She loves to make plans and lists. She is practical and efficient. She can run the perfect household or a successful business with equal grace. While she enjoys external recognition, she gets even more satisfaction through accomplishing her projects. She can become too focused on the material world… The Queen of Pentacles asks you to think and feel as she does. For example: Are you feeling warm and caring toward others? Are you being sensible? Have you been true to your word? Do you feel generous? Can you be counted on when times are tough?
