Theme of the Week: Knight of Swords
“Wise men say: Only fools rush in…” You may be very eager this week, but patience is a virtue. It is better to do something slowly and have it turn out right than quick and sloppy. Think about when you were in school and rushed through a paper. Chances are, your teacher either gave you a poor grade or if you were lucky, had you do it over again. Do you really want to go all the way to the beginning and start over after coming this far? Do it right the first time and leave no room for error, and therefore no room for regret. I’m feeling that this is either new territory for you or that it is a bit frightening in some way. Which is likely why you would want to rip the bandaid off and get it over with as soon as possible. But, slow and steady wins the race this week.
Your Card: The Chariot
You can go your own way, Cap. I am seeing you kind of torn right now. On one hand, you are super motivated and you’re ready to go! You have complete control and faith in one direction. But, on the other hand, you have all these anxieties and apprehension coming into play and you just don’t know which way to follow. You don’t know which side of your mind is intuition and which one is just plain, bad decision making. I’m going to be honest with you Cap, even if you do go with the side of you that is nervous or unsure about this, it’s not going to turn out all that bad. Don’t consider these thoughts as a signal that you need to stop what you’re doing or go in a different direction. Take them as a sign that you need to give certain things a second thought and take more time with them. Once you do that, then you can move forward confidently. Right now, just don’t go rushing headfirst in any one direction.
Your Card: 6 of Swords
Aquarius, things are getting better little by little. There is progress here, but most likely it’s not coming as fast as you would prefer. Let things unfold, don’t rush them, and trust in the process. There’s something that I’m seeing that you are worried about. There is progress here, but most likely it’s not coming as fast as you would prefer. Let things unfold, don’t rush them, and trust in the process. You will have the opportunity to go back and change things or get whatever it is that you need, with a little sprinkle of stealth on your part. Although you feel like you don’t know what you are riding into — and what comes next may not necessarily be easy — it also won’t be that hard for you either. You have all the skills you need to get what you want.
Your Card: King of Cups
Pisces, you are chillin’ right now. There is no drama, there are no issues to be thinking about, you are just in the zone. You’re in your zone. Relax and enjoy this time rather than anticipating what’s coming next or what’s happening behind your back. Whatever is going on that you don’t know about right now is none of your business. It is none of your concern, and you do not need to be thinking or worrying about it. You really need to revel in this time of peace, Pisces. I’m hearing that it would be in your best interest to use this time to either pick up a new hobby or work on one that you used to have. This is going to give you a sense of self-worth and self-confidence that you can take with you when any drama does arise again in the future. You’ll feel better about doing your own thing and staying outside of that because you have other interests that you are more invested in. I’m hearing that this will be astronomically helpful for your mental health.
Your Card: 4 of Cups
You’re staying where you are because it’s easier, Aries. You know that there’s something better out there for you, but — to be blunt — you don’t really feel like putting the work in. Maybe you’re tired, maybe you are expecting it not to work out in your best interest, but if you never ask the answer will always be no. If you never try, you will never know what could have been. I don’t want you to now just reach out and grab whatever is right in front of you because that would not be wise. To attain what you know would be better suited for you will first need a course of action put in place. What I mean by this is that you want to examine what it is you want, versus what you need. Then begin taking your steps from there. There’s something about this that I’m feeling you need to handle delicately. The reason you need to handle this with extra care is not for your benefit. It’s for someone else’s benefit and your peace of mind. It’s going to take a bit of effort on your part, but don’t put off moving in a better direction if you know that’s what’s right for you.
Your Card: 7 of Cups
Taurus, the things that you want feel just out of reach, but they’re not. All you need to do is figure out a new way to get to them. You are so used to a direct exchange when giving or receiving, that you have blocked out all alternative routes. Open yourself up to more than one way of doing things. There is no wrong or right way as long as you attain the results you’re looking for. I’m seeing that you are actually a lot closer than you think. You might assume that you need to choose one thing over another, but you can have everything that you want in this situation as long as you play your cards right. Reach for the things that are a little more realistic now, while working towards the goals that seem a bit more lofty. Don’t try to skip steps that are necessary. Those experiences will help you later on.
Your Card: Knight of Cups
You are an ocean of emotion right now, Gemini. I see you have a lot to say, but not to someone in particular. Just in general, you want to put more love out there. It looks like you want to start showing more of your softer side. I don’t know that this inclination will last very long, but the effects of it will be long-lasting. You will get to a point where this becomes more difficult and may even feel a little bit unnatural to you. So, that may be what turns you off or deters you from continuing. But whatever you do in this period of time will mean a lot to those who are on the receiving end of it. I don’t see what you get back from others as being all that extra special to you, but it will be therapeutic for yourself to purge these emotions that are writhing within.
Your Card: Queen of Swords
Oh the irony that we have just gone through a full moon lunar eclipse in Cancer, and that this week you will have learned how to convey your feelings and thoughts through your logical mind rather than from your emotional heart! You will be direct, concise, and straightforward. There is a sense of freedom in this for you. I’m seeing that this isn’t just for today or this week, but it is growth happening. Take note of how it feels to speak from your mind rather than from your feelings. Then, you can apply that to future conversations when you feel it is needed. Because you do tend to communicate from an emotional place, try to be mindful that you keep these conversations light. Try not to make others feel attacked or put them on the defense. You will have a much more pleasurable outcome this way. Remember, practice makes perfect!
Your Card: The Star
You have big dreams, Leo. And you plan on achieving them. Right now, it looks like you are trying to make an investment in one of your many goals. There is one in particular that holds a lot of meaning for you. This carries with it some type of hope and faith for the future or, rather, the future that you have long aspired to. This is the big dream. What you are putting effort into now, I’m not sure is directed towards that big dream, or perhaps you think that if you work towards some of your smaller objectives, that it will lead you to that big fantasy? I’m hearing that the big one is something on its own. It’s something separate that needs to be achieved by itself. While working on these smaller line items will be helpful in achieving the big one, you are going to need a whole different type of game plan for the thing that is most meaningful to you. You believe the key lies within money and tangible items, and while that may play a part, where it truly lies is within your heart and soul, and the expression of them in tandem.
Your Card: Queen of Wands
I am seeing two big egos finally embracing each other and coming together as a meeting of the minds, forming a kind of super alliance. The combined intelligence and creativity, along with unwavering loyalty, allegiance, and confidentiality makes this a dream team. Together, you can see things from every angle and use that information in the best possible way. This is such an easy partnership because you both are focused on the same things. What one lacks, the other contributes. This should be uncomplicated, free-flowing, and any doubts or disruptions should be put to bed in your mind at this point. There are some things you will always keep to yourself, as you are not an open book, Virgo. That is okay, as long as you keep an optimistic outlook on this and show no signs of distrust in your affiliations. You are in the process of building something great right now.
Your Card: 7 of Swords
Why can’t you just trust that things are getting better and going your way, Libra? I see you trying to take as much as you can now, just in case you’re going to be lacking in some way in the future. You need to accept that good things can happen to you and that whatever comes down the road — even if it isn’t to your liking — is not necessarily a setback, but an experience you can use somehow to improve your life. It’s as if you’re stealing sugar packets from the diner in case there’s no sugar in the break room. Yes, they might come in handy, but is it really necessary? You can afford some sugar packets — the ones you like. If you settle for scraps, you’re going to keep getting scraps. As much as you try to prepare for anything, you can never truly be ready for when it happens. Try to go with the flow a little bit more and stop anticipating the future. You will find life more liberating.
Your Card: 5 of Pentacles
You might be feeling a little left out this week, Scorpio. I’m seeing that you feel a bit like an outsider. Maybe you feel like you don’t make as much money as your friends so you can’t do all the same things that they’re doing, or that you just don’t seem to fit in in some way with others. You are trying your best, so don’t be hard on yourself. You will get through this time. You may be hesitant to take a handout or a loan from someone. It actually could be the kickstart that you need in order to put things in motion and start growing your own wealth, business, or whatever it is that you want to plant the seeds for now. Success does not happen overnight so give your project (and yourself) time, and be sure to have a plan in place. Thomas Edison said when inventing the light bulb, “I have not failed. I just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”
Your Card: 10 of Swords
Oh, no baby, what are you doing? You are killing yourself, Sag. And you are killing yourself unnecessarily. Whatever it is you’re overthinking and have convinced yourself that you need to do, you are going about it the complete wrong way. I’m not sure if you started a new health regimen recently, or something to that effect, but I’m seeing you hurting yourself in the process. Your energy levels are going down, your mental acuity is being affected, or for some of you — your self-esteem. Something needs to change. You are going to extremes. I’m hearing that it’s not as much what you’re doing that is causing harm, but to the degree that you are doing it. Tone it down. This is not sustainable, or beneficial. You need to do things in a way that is constructive to you and your overall health. Take a step back, look objectively, and see where you can make positive adjustments. You are smart enough to make those assessments and do this on your own. Just be sure to hold yourself accountable and follow through.
