This week, use your considerable powers to make manifest something that you desire. You have all the necessary tools at your disposal, and the wherewithal to bring everything together to achieve your aim. Your connection between the spiritual and the physical is sharply focused at the moment, so go make things happen!
This week amazing things might be right under your nose but you’re just not seeing them. You might even feel bored and disillusioned with life, even though those on the outside looking in may feel quite envious of what you seem to have. Maybe over time you have grown nonchalant and unappreciative of all the good in your life? Today would be a good opportunity to remind yourself how much you have to be grateful for.
The Six of Swords is a card about transitioning from a place of stress and worry to a calmer place where peace of mind can be restored.
Sometimes it can seem that we are trapped in a situation that we know is doing is no favours, but it can be scary and disorientating to move forward. Often we feel that it is “better the devil we know” even though if we are truly honest with ourselves we will acknowledge that staying in this situation is self destructive and damaging.
We can find ourselves stuck in many circumstances that no longer serve us, whether that is a job, a relationship or a location. The longer we remain paralysed by fear of the unknown and afraid to move forward, the more likely it is that the stress and anxiety this engenders will progress to depression. Once this happens it is even more difficult to clamber out of the trap we have fallen into as we then are bogged down even further in the lethargy and hopelessness of despondency.
The rainbow overarching the card is a promise however that things can only get better if we can find the courage to move forward. Even if we only take “baby steps” we will eventually find ourselves in a much more hopeful and positive place. It is challenging and scary to move out of our comfort zone, but necessary for our long term future happiness.
Whatever you’re doing this week, have faith and confidence in yourself. The Mother of Wands epitomises fiery, creative energy; you are more than a match for anyone you come into contact with who is being difficult or prickly. You won’t stand for any nonsense or disrespect, but then again you aren’t one to go looking for trouble unless it seeks you out. Anyone who decides to take you on this week may get more than they bargain for.
The Son of Wands marks the return of a fiery and powerful burst of creative energy. If you have been feeling lacklustre about your projects recently, this week may see a return to high octane enthusiasm and motivation. Perhaps you’ll feel super inspired by new ideas, and ready to surge ahead in your creative endeavours….it feels like Spring is finally in the air, and with that returning warmth and light, the sap begins to rise and restore our energy and passion.☀️
This is a beautiful, positive card signifying new beginnings in love and relationships. Suddenly your joie de vivre is restored and you feel as if your cup runneth over. Life is fizzing with excitement again, and you feel a sense of hope and positivity starting to bubble up from the very depths of your soul. Things are starting to happen! It may be slow and steady at first but then may suddenly speed up and gather momentum.
This week it may seem that you are highly perceptive and receptive to any emotional undercurrents. You can see right through people and situations with laser sharp instincts. Nothing can be hidden or concealed from you today. Your inner radar is highly developed and can hone in on the deeper levels of reality.
I love this depiction of the Seven of Swords from The Wild Unknown deck, showing a very shifty and devious looking fox concealing one of the swords beneath his curled up body.
When this card appears, be careful who you trust, as someone may be trying to “pull the wool over your eyes” regarding something. It could indicate a betrayal or deception that has yet to come to light.
Equally, it could refer to something underhand or dishonest that you are contemplating getting involved with. Think carefully, as sometimes although it may seem like the easier option, the truth is usually the best policy in the long run.
In the words of Walter Scott…..
“Oh, what a tangled web we weave…when first we practice to deceive.”
Equally, this card could also be about something that we are at pains to keep from ourselves. Sometimes we are all guilty of burying our heads in the sand, rather than facing up to the unpalatable truth of a situation, emotion or action that we would prefer to blank out and ignore.
This week may be busy, busy, busy! It may be difficult to stay focused as events force you to keep on changing direction and going off at a tangent. It is possible that there may be revelations which come completely out of the blue and force you to re-evaluate situations which you thought you had a handle on. Stay on your toes this week and be poised to ‘turn on a sixpence’ if required.
The Pentacles represent the physical and material aspects of life, so the Father of Pentacles is someone who has dominion over the material world and through hard work, discipline and a conscientious attitude is able to create wealth, security and stability. This person has reached the pinnacle of prosperity and affluence and consequently is now able to take pride in their achievements and enjoy the luxury, abundance and sensuality derived from the fruits of their labour.
This person is skilled in wealth generation and never misses a business opportunity. The Father of Pentacles is strong and powerful and takes great pride in being an excellent provider who ensures the stability, security and protection of his loved ones.
The more negative aspects of this character which can sometimes be apparent are a tendency to be authoritative, controlling and domineering.
When The Father of Pentacles puts in an appearance it may be an indication that someone with these qualities may enter your life. It can also be a time when you will achieve the best results by incorporating the energies of this card into your projects!
