The 10 of Swords says in no uncertain terms that, finally, it’s over. You have fought and worked at it, but you cannot change the situation; there is no fixing it. You may want to try one last time, but you will have to accept that this time you are beaten. It’s a strange moment because you thought you’d feel a lot more pain and distress, but you actually feel calm and peaceful. Deep down, you are relieved you don’t have to fight it anymore. If you’re feeling tired and depleted, book yourself in for a massage or acupuncture to help you release any stress.
The 8 of Pentacles is known as the ‘apprentice card’. It means you’ve taken up a new job, craft, art or activity. It’s not an easy road, for being a beginner brings a hard learning curve and tedious repetition until you get it perfect. Because you have a goal and the passion that comes with a new endeavour, it’s likely the bumpy, beginning part of the journey will not discourage you.
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.
The 4 of Wands represents a moment of celebration. Whatever you’ve been working on is showing good signs of success, so take a moment to revel in it. In fact, things are looking so well, you can use some of your gains to lay a foundation for the future, whether it’s building a house, expanding your business, investing or even getting married. Gather friends and family just to have a night out and celebrate life!
The High Priestess is about knowledge that you need and that can be revealed. This knowledge is beyond logic. You must access and trust your intuition if you hope to understand it – relaxation and meditation are the ways to do this. Refrain from action for a while and instead take the time to search within yourself for the wisdom you need to move on. It could also mark the beginning of a spiritual journey. On a mundane level, it suggests sharing knowledge and not keeping secrets. This week, pay attention to the world around you. Look out for any signs or synchronicities and what they are telling you.
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 King of Cups is peaceful, sensitive, affectionate and calm. He loves his home and values family and a relaxed home life. He enjoys expressing himself creatively but is even more supportive of others’ creativity, sometimes at the expense of his own. He is generally friendly and caring, a very nice man to have around. This week, take the kinds of actions he might take: respond calmly in a crisis; use diplomacy rather than force; reach out to help someone; accept a different point of view.
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 Tower indicates a major change in your life or belief system. Be prepared for emotional upheaval and distressing events. This bolt from the blue, this event will create a spiritual epiphany that will allow you to eliminate all that is no longer useful or good for you. Lies and half-truths will be revealed. It is a sort of purification. Whatever is solid and good will remain. You will have a foundation that has survived trial by fire and you can rebuild with confidence, once the dust has settled. If you feel that your life is falling apart, notice what false beliefs are being destroyed in the process.
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 6 of Wands is a card of victory. Whatever you have set your hand to will prosper and you will be happy with your success. It will be personally satisfying but it will also be crowned with public recognition in some form. The acknowledgement will make this moment even sweeter. Accept compliments without feeling embarrassed or being immodest. Acknowledge and accept other people’s praise of you!
The Chariot is about victory through mastery. In this situation, there are opposing and conflicting forces, perhaps very powerful ones, that must be made to work in harmony to achieve a common goal. These conflicting energies may be within yourself or external. Either way, it is up to you to harness that energy and guide it to success. Focus and control your emotions or you may find yourself being pulled in many directions.
