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.
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?
The Hanged Man 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 Ace of Swords is the gift of knowledge and understanding. You can expect a flash of insight or an idea that will help solve a particularly sticky problem or experience a moment of truth. If you want to communicate something with clarity and just the right words, the energy to accomplish that is present at this time. It can also represent a new point of view, discovery or intellectual achievement. Take action on something you’ve been avoiding for fear of failure.
The King of Wands is passionate and leads with confidence and energy. He is not one to go with the flow. He sets his own goals and makes his own way towards them. You have the wisdom, experience and energy to succeed at whatever it is you want to achieve now. Trust in yourself. Be bold and fearless. Make a grand gesture!
The 5 of Pentacles indicates going through rough times, either physically or financially. That is hard enough, but this card carries a more distressing message. You are letting these hard times erode your spirit, your faith and your desire. You don’t have the energy to get through this time. You have no faith that things will turn around. You don’t even desire to seek the help that may be available. It’s time to look around you and realise that you can help yourself.
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 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 Page of Pentacles is industrious, crafty and earnest about saving money. This Page likes to learn new things and enjoys structured learning, classes, workshops and programs – look out for events that interest you. You can be clever and creative in finding little ways to earn extra income. Look out for messages about money, resources, material matters and health issues. Say yes to any opportunities that come your way.
The Hermit is about seeking the truth. Your truth. You need to withdraw from a situation for a time. Use this time to review all your knowledge, understanding and experience. When you figure out how it all works together, you will have the answer you need. Be careful that your solitude is not you hiding away from a situation or that you are hiding because you’re too proud to ask for help.
The 5 of Swords represents the end of an argument or clash of some sort. The winner is ambitious and may have won by aggressive or less than honourable methods. It indicates a situation where someone has put her needs above the needs of others and is concerned only for his or her own interests. You will know if you are the winner or the one running away. Either way, hold to a larger view of who you are. Find the solution that is best for everyone… including yourself. Apologise to someone you have wronged – don’t let your pride stop you from saying sorry.
