Things are looking up and you may find that you are starting to emerge from a dark phase and the future is looking a lot rosier. This could be particularly in matters relating to the material, tangible world. Improvements could come in the guise of better health, more abundance, a swanky new place to live or a dream job.
Something good is heading your way. It’s so near you can almost taste it on the breeze. Ever had that sense of excitement and just known that something awesome was about to happen? The Ace of Cups carries the pure potential and possibility, that is ripe to manifest in the area of love and relationships. This could potentially be what you have been waiting a very long time for.
The card for the upcoming week is the Nine of Cups, also known as the “wish card”.
If you look closely you will see that the cups are arranged in an inverted horseshoe shape, which is traditionally a symbol of good look and prosperity.
The colours graduate from a beautiful serene blue at the bottom of the card, to a gorgeous rosy pink at the top. It puts me in mind of a heavenly sunrise or sunset over a tranquil sea. The colours suggest that everything in the emotional garden is currently rosy and relationships, either familial or romantic are going through a settled and harmonious phase.
If you notice the cups all look full and they are stable and solid rather than teetering on slender stems that may topple over or snap at any moment. In this way they likely mirror a relationship which is rock solid and built on strong foundations. It may not be in the first flush of romance and trying to impress with grand gestures and flashy, extravagant gifts, but it does have the advantage of having moved on to the next level of quiet comfort, warmth and support. This is probably a relationship that you can rely on and trust to be there for you.
So, the romance may have paled somewhat, and perhaps sometimes you look at others and wish that your partner still showered you with gifts and that you were still in the exciting and intoxicatingly first flush of love? However, “be careful what you wish for” as outward appearances can be deceptive, and it is likely that your partnership although it may not be perfect, is the real deal.
Today may be one of those weird and wonderful days where the hand of fate plays a part. It may not be immediately apparent, but when you look back with the benefit of hindsight you might see that today was a turning point or crossroads in some way. The threads of fate twist and turn in mysterious ways and it’s impossible to unpick them and see the bigger picture from our perspective. However, just because it isn’t visible to us doesn’t mean that there is not an order and pattern moving beneath the surface of life. Embrace the mystery today!
You are positively overflowing with brilliant creative ideas today! You may feel as if your cup quite literally “runneth over”, to the extent that it may feel a little overwhelming. Make sure that your inspirations don’t evaporate into the ether like a wisp of smoke. Be sure to write them down so that you can refer back to them on days when your imagination is less prolific. Perhaps take the time to act on one of your ideas straight away? Baby steps in the right direction can eventually add up to major change and achievement.
Today, being the New Moon, is an excellent time to decide on your intentions for the upcoming lunar cycle and sow the seeds for what you hope to achieve over the course of the next month. Then start to take the steps to nurture the seeds you have planted. What do you need to do, on a daily basis to ensure that your seedlings take root and flourish? Remember to be patient too….just because you don’t see anything happening straight away doesn’t mean that life is not starting to stir beneath the surface! Resist the temptation to dig up your seedlings to see how they are doing, and trust that things will start to happen on their own schedule and can’t be rushed.
You are so very nearly there! It’s been a hard slog recently and there have been times when you’ve felt like throwing in the towel, but now you can pat yourself on the back for having the tenacity to hang on in there. There are a few final obstacles and minor problems to negotiate, but soon you will be toasting your success. You can feel very proud of yourself!
