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.
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 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 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 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.
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 Fool indicates being at a crossroads. There are a variety of paths you can choose and this card suggests making an intuitive decision, even if it seems illogical. This is a moment for faith and trust, in yourself and in The Universe. Follow your heart and embrace whatever comes your way. If you could start anything knowing it would be successful, what would you do? Start something new this week.
The King of Pentacles indicates that, for some of you, your hard work has paid off and you are financially secure. You may need to play the role of provider to someone, either personally or professionally. It may be that a project comes up which requires you to use facts and figures instead of your creative side. For others, if you are having financial issues, draw up a realistic plan of action on how to make use of your resources. Set your priorities straight. If you haven’t already done so, look into making your will.
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 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 3 of Swords is one of those dreaded cards in a tarot deck, signifying heartache and disappointment. Life sometimes brings us these moments and this card signifies that. It represents a new, raw pain. It can be a major situation, such as finding your lover unfaithful, or a smaller one, such as cutting and hurtful words from a trusted friend. Swords represent truth and this is a case of the truth hurting very much.
Justice represents the importance of your choices. Whatever decision or decisions you make now will have significant consequences in your future, so choose carefully. Rely on logic and reason to make the decision, rather than emotion. If you are experiencing good fortune, this card can be letting you know that your past actions made the good fortune possible. It could represent a legal situation that will be resolved in your favour. This card is also a reminder to balance your physical concerns with spiritual growth.
