Notes by Nectar

Your destiny lies in your own hands

Your week ahead (18-24 August 2019)

I’m now offering two types of personal tarot readings by email: monthly insight readings and weekly love readings! You can also follow me on Facebook and Instagram for daily tarot guidance and interactive fun.

Aries

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.

Taurus

The 4 of Swords suggests that you have situations, troubles or problems that need resolution. However, this is not the time to deal with them head on. Rather, it is a time to take yourself away, calm down and heal a bit, so that you can approach your issues refreshed. Quiet, peaceful reflection and meditation will bring clear insight so that you can handle the situation to your benefit. Spend time alone and meditate to release the tension in your body. Do anything that lets you relax and just ‘be’.

Gemini

The 3 of Wands indicates great vision and foresight. You have taken an idea and started implementing it. You have laid the groundwork for a new business, enterprise, career or project. You can clearly see your goal. Take a step back and watch for initial responses. Because you’ve done your work well, you can expect to see signs of success.

Cancer

The 8 of Wands is full of fast-moving potential. You need to be ready to spring into action! Whether you’ve set up things ready for action or you’ve been watching for your opportunity, the moment has come. Things may seem chaotic, but just jump in, maintain your focus, trust your instincts and you should do well. If there’s something you’ve been putting off, this is the time to do it. Stop making excuses and just do it! This card can sometimes indicate getting news or information you’ve been waiting for or quick, unexpected trips.

Leo

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.

Virgo

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.

Libra

The Magician indicates that it is time to focus on your goals, applying your determination and skill to achieve those goals. Everything you need is available and you have the ability necessary. Move forward with confidence because this card suggests success in your endeavours. This is a magical moment filled with potential just waiting to be realised.

Scorpio

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. This week, apologise to someone you have wronged – don’t let your pride stop you from saying sorry.
