Four of Wands

Four of Wands

It is now time for a well-deserved rest and the enjoyment of good company. Your plans were well-laid, so you can allow yourself to bask for a while as you see your ideas take shape in reality. This could also be a good time to consider moving house, or formalizing a romantic attachment. Enjoy this time, but don't allow complacency to creep in.

Ten of Wands

Ten of Wands

Exhaustion threatens as you try to juggle the conflicting demands of work and family. Try to step back and reorganize your life in a more practical and realistic way, rather than just struggling on hopelessly against the tide of demands. Something has to give, and it need not necessarily be you.

You benefit from triumphant and well-earned success as careful plans and hard work bear fruit. Be magnanimous in victory, and your moment of glory will be prolonged. This is no time for remembering petty insults and injuries suffered along the way because if you forget them, so will others.

Justice


June 24, 2014
Justice

Life is often unfair, and luck counts for more than we care to admit in realizing our dreams. Opposed to this, however, is the natural human thirst for fairness represented by the eighth card of the Major Arcana which recalls Themis, the ancient Greek goddess of Justice, with her scales and her sword of discernment, in this case supported by the dragon of higher wisdom. She represents an ideal that we may strive toward.
Justice reveals a judgement in your favor as you receive your just rewards. This can be uncomfortable for those who have strayed beyond morality, but usually this card signals good fortune for you and a happy outcome to current negotiations. The card signals a good time for drawing up contracts, settling outstanding debts and obligations, and laying the foundations for the future.

Reversed Tower


June 23, 2014
Reversed Tower

The Tower of Stale, outmoded belief is toppled by the Dragon of repressed natural instincts. The falling figures represent the plunge into confusion that comes with the shattering of long-held convictions. They also reflect Adam and Eve, cast out of Eden into the mortal world, having for the first time to feed and clothe themselves, or children being cast out of the home.
Reversed, the shock is considerably lessened, but still demands great and flexible character and patience to understand. Be open to change and a re-evaluation of your ideals, but keep those roots firmly clinging to the remaining certainties of your life. Friends prove their worth in times like this, but beware of imposing too much on their patience.

Reversed Knight of Cups

Reversed Knight of Cups

Like all crushed romantics, the Knight reversed becomes cynical, bitter, deceitful, treacherous, and self-serving. The card symbolizes loss and the bitterness disappointment can bring, and its poisonous effect on relationships.

Reversed King of Cups

Reversed King of Cups

His creativity turns to idle dreaming, dishonesty, fickleness, and an inability to see projects through to the end. Disappointment leads him to escapism and addiction, and his bitterness makes him a treacherous friend and bad enemy.

Reversed King of Pentacles

Reversed King of Pentacles

This King is insensitive, greedy, calculating, devious, jealous, and aggressive - a dangerous enemy when in a position of authority, because he will use any means at all to get his own way.

Reversed World


June 17, 2014
Reversed World

As the last card of the Major Arcana, the World signifies the achievement of ambitions, and success in the eyes of others. the Wyrm Ouroboros encircles the world to show the endless self-renewal of nature, flanked by the dragons of the four Minor Arcana suits; Air (Swords), Water (Cups), Fire (Wands), and Earth (Pentacles).
The World in reversed position warns of disappointment, a lack of imagination, and failure to carry projects right through to the end. Much more perseverance, determination, and imagination are now needed if you hope to realize any of your dreams. Stagnation is bound to set in if you don't keep supplying fresh energy to your undertakings.

Eight of Wands


June 16, 2014
Eight of Wands

The Eight indicates sudden progress that is possibly too fast for comfort, so try to slow things down a little and avoid over-hasty decisions that you might later regret. This is an exciting and well-starred time with travel, new business partnerships, and long-term romance all likely - just bear in mind that life is not always this easy, and plan for those rainy days.

Success is likely, even though all the odds appear to be stacked against you. Victory will be all the sweeter for the effort it takes you, and sweeter still if you just quietly get on with doing whatever is necessary without complaint.

Nine of Pentacles

You are likely to receive substantial reward for your accomplishments, and you will be able to afford to relax and enjoy your more contemplative inclinations. Don’t shut out your family and friends, however, because they have had to put up with your darker moods and have probably helped you through them much more than you know.

King of Swords


June 11, 2014
King of Swords

In astrology the character of Saturn in his benign aspect closely resembles that of the King of Swords. He represents power, authority, and the law, splitting complex arguments with the edge of his sword. His judgments can at times seem lacking in tolerance of human frailty, but are never unfair. This card usually represents an authority figure that the querent can look to for justice.

Success and recognition are yours for the taking. Therefore, this is a good time for beginning new long-term enterprises, especially in the fields of arts and crafts, although it may be some time before the financial rewards come to you. Meanwhile, simply enjoy exercising your talents and have faith that others will equally enjoy what you do.

Page of Cups


June 05, 2014
Page of Cups

The Page of Cups is the ideal student – patient, receptive, docile, and eager to learn. Often the card represents the need for such an attitude if you are to progress. There are times for assertion and times for humility, and this is one of them. If it represents another person, it means someone nearby is willing to learn from you, although they may be too shy to ask.

Five of Wands

Gold, opulence, and splendor come your way, but a rival is threatening your position. Resist the urge to score points and your enemy will end up exposing their own pettiness. Competitiveness is healthy up to a point, but can become destructive if taken to extremes. Double-check everything you do, and the situation will resolve itself.

Fool


June 02, 2014
Fool

The Fool represents the wild optimism of youth, rushing into adventures with no thought for the consequences. Although this impulsiveness often leads to disaster, especially in mature people who should know better, it is what makes the world turn. The dragonet snapping at the Fool's foot symbolizes his cautious conscience, warning him not to get too carried away and fall off the edge.
A new beginning with fresh adventures ahead, although there is a very real danger of it all going horribly wrong. The bag on the Fool's shoulder represents natural talents that he could employ usefully if he took the trouble to open the bag, but he generally doesn't. For wild optimists this card is a warning to try to temper enthusiasms with a little common sense. For pessimists, it suggests lightening up a bit.
