Theme of the Week: Page of Pentacles
Our Theme of the Week is the Page of Pentacles. The Page is here to show us something significant. He is here to show many of us something about ourselves and for others — about someone else. The Page is putting all of the cards on the table. You may not see the full spectrum of what is going on right now, but you are getting enough of a glimpse to make an educated decision on how to move forward — if you decide to move forward at all. This could also be an insider look at a situation rather than a person, in particular. You’re getting a lot of information now that you couldn’t get in any other way besides by your own intuition and the universe’s guiding light. Pay attention to what you’re observing and don’t write it off as coincidence or happenstance.
Your Card: Queen of Wands
Pisces, you are either looking outside of the box, or you need to start looking outside of the box. If you want to keep going in this situation, whether it’s professional or personal, to be the best that you can be you’re going to need to open yourself up to more possibilities. This isn’t a time for a “My way or the highway” attitude because that’s not going to be beneficial to you, or to anyone else involved in this situation. Let alone, the situation in itself. That is only going to keep you stagnant rather than push you forward and propel you into the place that you’re supposed to be. You are practically a step away, but the only way you’re going to get there is with a positive, can-do attitude and an optimistic outlook.
Your Card: Knight of Cups
The Knight is bringing you good news with something that you’ve been struggling with for quite a while, Aries. I’m seeing you having a bit of a hard time accepting this for what it is. It’s almost as if it seems too good to be true, or you just have a lot of doubts about this situation. It’s like you’re waiting for the ball to drop. For some of you, these concerns are very valid. For others of you, know when you are getting in your own way. Sometimes you just need to give up control and give things a chance to play out so that you aren’t self-sabotaging. The trick is knowing the difference between reality and if you’re only hearing what you want to hear. Be honest with yourself. Give sparkling, golden opportunities a chance, but don’t give yourself false hope in situations where you already know the hard truth in your heart.
Your Card: 10 of Swords
So, the 10 of Swords can be a scary card to see when it’s pulled in a reading. But, in your case Gemini, this is a really good omen. The 10 of Swords is saying that something is coming to an end. What is ending now has not been serving you, and has only been bringing you moments of stress and grief. I’m feeling like this is going to be more of a big relief than anything else. This needed to happen for you because you weren’t going to put this to an end yourself. Something was keeping you from bringing this to a close, whether you were too scared to do it, afraid of the loss, or believing that something would be missing in your life. It’s almost as if because it happened this way, it’s taking the responsibility off of you and therefore you can just accept it. This is a great thing for you, Gemini, and I am actually feeling quite happy for you that this period has concluded. You should soon be starting to feel more refreshed and, in a sense, revived.
Your Card: 3 of Pentacles
There is something that you want, or maybe see as better in some way, but you also perceive it as being quite boring, or plain. You still want whatever this thing or this person is because in a way it is still aspirational. But in order to get this, there will have to be a trade-off. Whether you’re compromising your values, your goals, or something else, you’re not going to be able to have your cake and eat it too. I know that is what you really want, though. When it comes down to it, Cancer, you’re not going to let go of your highest ambitions. So, you’re going to have to find a way to include your list of non-negotiables. If that’s not possible in this agreement, then you’re going to have to strike out on your own and do things a bit more unconventionally. That is the only way your ultimate objectives will be feasible and attainable.
Your Card: 2 of Cups
Leo, you’re trying. But you’re not trying that hard. It’s not that you don’t care that much, you just seem very unsure about what you’re doing or where to go. The direction that you want to point in is unclear. You want things to be good and in the best possible place it can be between you and someone else, but you also realize that because you’re so unsure right now and still trying to figure things out, that you need to really be careful in your next steps. You don’t want to create too much depth, but you also don’t want to keep things on the surface or in an uncomfortable or negative space. You are in a very delicate position at the moment. You have to figure out where your fear lies in comparison to where your love lies. Are you avoiding or being non-committal because you’re scared of something, or because you know that the right thing to do is to let go?
Your Card: 9 of Pentacles
Yes, Virgo, we can all see that you’re very self-sufficient. But don’t let that self-sufficiency create a boundary or a divide between you and others. Don’t get so caught up in your own stuff, that you forget to nurture relationships. And try not to judge others for not having their own s— together yet. It’s a process, and one you know well. You didn’t always have it all figured out. Beware of cultivating an elitist mindset. Instead, use your success to contribute to a team, or if you see you can serve friends or associates with something, don’t be afraid to offer that assistance. Even if it is simply some friendly advice in your area of expertise, others will be grateful for your consideration. Helping to lift others up will, in turn, lift you up as well.
Your Card: Temperance
You just want everything to be nice and calm, very even keel — no problems. But, Libra, you know the reality is that is not the way life happens. But if anyone can bring resolution, peace, and mindfulness to a difficult situation, it’s you. Be very careful right now that you’re not being perceived as playing both sides, as that has the potential to escalate a situation. Make sure that it is extremely obvious that you are trying to diffuse the state of affairs, not egg it on. This isn’t something that can be resolved easily or quickly. So, don’t expect that there is some type of magical words of conflict resolution that will smooth things over. There may be more to this than you even realize, perhaps a long-standing rivalry is involved here. It does look like there could be some history. Do what you can, but don’t get in too deep. This isn’t your fight.
Your Card: 10 of Wands
Seems like you’re perpetually going through a hard time, Scorpio. When does it end? It only can come to a culmination when you bring it to one. It is your job to work through the difficulties of life and see the light at the end of the tunnel. There always is one, but if you choose not to believe it, or to look for it, you’ll always feel like the world is against you. You will always feel the weight of it upon your shoulders. No one can remove this for you, you are the only one who can unload all that you insist on carrying around with you. Things are not always perfect, but you don’t have to make whatever seems to be going wrong the focus of your life, 24/7. Either take care of your burdens so that you can bring them to a close and wash your hands of them once and for all, or make it a little less central to your life. Simultaneously take time to recognize all the good things that are happening around you. Let them bring some semblance of joy into your life and let yourself be happy. Stop trying to fight it. Self-pity isn’t becoming.
Your Card: 9 of Swords
You’re a mess in the head right now, Sag. For a lot of you, this looks like it has to do with finances — incoming bills, specifically. Expenses may have crept up on you or there may be unexpected expenses coming to you this week. You can sort this out, you just have to use a little bit of practicality and logic. It is tax season, so you may owe more than you thought you would. In some other cases, perhaps you’ll get back enough money to help you with whatever your concerns are right now. Consider going on a payment plan or finding ways to budget yourself so that you can save more. If you have investments, look at whether or not you would be able to withdraw something to help you with your current situation. This isn’t unsolvable, and you aren’t in a worst-case-scenario, even if it feels like it. There are ways for you to get through this, you just have to put your nose to the grindstone. Take this seriously and don’t put it off till later because it will follow you.
Your Card: Knight of Swords
Cap, you are leaping before you’re looking and therefore, you’re ending up with repeated swings and misses. There has to be a lot more thought behind your actions before you actually put things into motion. Otherwise, you’re just going to keep trying rapid-fire, thing after thing, and none of it is going to stick. You’re wasting your own time, and potentially others’ as well. Be really mindful of that because those people are not going to want to deal with you in the future due to your current negligence – even if you do come up with a well-laid-out plan. Building trust and confidence are paramount right now. You might think that you are doing this by attempting to get the work done quickly, but it isn’t efficient if it isn’t done correctly. You aren’t typically a sloppy person, so don’t let yourself be perceived that way. Take your time and get the job done right. You will be much more respected for a clean job well-done, than a fast one.
Your Card: 6 of Cups
You are really focused and anticipating taking care of your home life right now, Aquarius. Your world doesn’t usually center around the home as much it does for other signs, like Cancer, but this has been a long time coming. You have the opportunity and the gift of creating and cultivating a really warm atmosphere that you can be proud of, happy with, and comfortable in. I keep hearing that someone is giving you a gift. This could be a physical present for some of you, and a sentimental one, for others. As I typed this, my computer tried to correct “present” to “presence” so I am feeling that this has to do with the people, and perhaps for some, even pets, that reside in, visit or depart, your household. A peace offering or something that gives you peace of mind is connected with this. Things seem as if they are about to become more cohesive and relaxed within your home — but something is also about to change.
