The Empress is a beautiful, bountiful card. It asks us to consider if we are nourishing ourselves on a regular basis? Are we doing the things which will empower us to create and sustain the important things in our lives. In order to be strong and abundant we are required to attend to the three main areas of body, mind and spirit. These must be stoked in a positive way to ensure that we are strong and able to squeeze all the juice out of life. Ask yourself if your perpetual daily habits are moving you nearer or further away from the strength and empowerment you seek.
The suit of swords is all about communication and mental processes. When the Daughter of Swords comes out, I often see it as flashes of inspiration which appear to come out of nowhere. Take note this week, of your inner knowing and guidance. If you receive some information, which just feels true for you, but you’re not sure where it is coming from, be sure to explore what it means for you, as it could contain valuable inner wisdom.
This is a week of new beginnings and inspired concepts! Any ideas which emerge in your consciousness really could have legs, and may contain the seeds of something which has tremendous potential. So don’t dismiss anything as being too crazy or unworkable. The Aces are about the essence or impression of an idea, and so may need some fine tuning, but the basic idea is good….so develop it, and run with it. You never know where it might take you!
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. Your inner radar is highly developed and can home in on the deeper levels of reality. Trust what you feel!
If there are choices which need to be made this week it could prove very confusing. There are so many possible options on offer that it may feel impossible to choose between them. What to do for the best? Because this is the suit of cups which rules emotions, feelings and intuition, the best advice would probably be to follow your heart or gut feeling, rather than attempting to make a decision using a rational or logical process. There is a choice on offer that would be a perfect fit…..symbolised by the one upright cup in the midst of all the inverted ones. Listen to your heart to come to the right decision for you.
