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 9 of Cups is a card of happy contentment. Things are good and you like them that way: friends, family, feasting, fun, creative fulfillment and satisfying work. Your life is full and you’re enjoying every aspect of it. This card is often called the ‘wish card’. It’s true; you feel like you have all that you could wish for.
The 6 of Cups is a card of sweetness, kindness and innocence. It holds memories of happy times in the past. It can represent a time of sweet simple joys or it can be something larger. Perhaps a passionate pursuit or beloved creative endeavour that you let go of will return to your life. It could be a sign of someone from your past whom you would welcome back into your life.
The Ace of Wands shows that a bold seed of enthusiasm has been planted in your life although you may not recognise it yet. When the seed sprouts it could take almost any form. It might be a creative idea, a surge of optimism or a need to act boldly. It could also be an offer, gift, opportunity, encounter or synchronistic event. This month be daring and brave. Sometimes you have to risk to get what you want. Seize the initiative and let your enthusiasm take you to new heights. A time of passion is beginning.
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.
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 4 of Cups represents self-absorption, apathy and boredom. You may have been disappointed by someone or something and now you are emotionally stuck. You don’t like what’s in front of you and you can’t be bothered to look further than your own brooding mind. It’s a shame because if you listen to the voice of wisdom, you will look up and see that what you need is not far away. You need something to focus on that will so engage your mind and heart that your path becomes clear again. Open yourself to your surroundings. How about saying yes to every opportunity that comes your way?
The 10 of Cups rarely needs any explanation – the image is one of ideal family life. For you, this card can mean just that. Or it can represent the components of such a life: a safe, comfortable place to live and people, either friends or family, to share your life. It’s about having people to share your joys and support you through your sorrows. When you see the 10 of Cups, know that an end to hostility is possible. If there is fighting around you, it may cease. If you are at war with yourself, you may find peace. This card often signals a time of abundant blessings. It tells you that you can reach for the fulfilment you deserve and it will come to you. Look for ways to realise joy and create peace. You may find the key to happiness in your family. Your family is the group of people you are attached to emotionally – for better or worse! If there is trouble in your family right now, work to restore harmony. The time is right for greater closeness.
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 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 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 Ace of Pentacles brings with it the gift of luck, an opportunity for material gain or improved health. It is solid and grounded and represents something practical and dependable. This is the seed of good things to come. Use the energy of this moment to start a new project, make a small investment or start a fitness programme. You have the opportunity to grow something wonderful. This card can also represent the arrival of some unexpected money or material item.
