Virgo: Ace of Swords (Reversed)
Now is the time for you to step further into a position of receiving. A message from an outside source is on its way to you — in a focused, intentional way — and as you open yourself to the reception of it, a part of you that has been in you since birth will finally be given the room to develop. Growth is your birth-right, and the Earth intends to assist you in a way that does not demand much of your labor. It is in your stillness and receptivity that you will bear the fruits of all you’ve been cultivating up until now. If you are overly forceful, or run towards what you’ve been seeking, you will hit a wall of disappointment and leave yourself prematurely vulnerable.
Libra: Nine of Wands (Reversed)
You have reached a safe-enough position to look away from all that is protecting you, yet what is being required of you at this time is asking that you remain vigilant and prepared for all unexpected encounters. Be mindful of any falls towards carelessness — of forgetting your sense of watchfulness — as all that you’ve learned will inform the ways you move forward. Be proud of yourself for all all you have scaled, all you have built, all you have left behind in order to reach this time of protection. The Earth is supporting this shield to protect you at this time. Any force that wishes you harm would have to cross mountains to get to you. You are incredibly perseverant, and the cosmos are taking notice.
Scorpio: Ten of Pentacles (Reversed)
You are currently in a position where you are witnessing the growth and abundance of those around you, yet you feel yourself in a place of stagnancy and loss. Be weary of brewing to the point of bitterness in your consumption of the lives of others. This position of stillness is serving you at this time, as you find yourself surrounded by an environment that contains what is necessary for your purpose. Focus on your own foundation-building, and the comforts that root you at home, and you will develop the strength that is necessary to rejoin the world. The door is already open for you.
Sagittarius: The Moon (Reversed)
While you typically find yourself directed by the people and opportunities that are presented to you, now is the time for you play an active role in choosing your direction. Forge your own path and become your own ocean. You are as much in a relationship with the elements as the moon. If there is a project or a place that has been calling you towards it for a while, now is the time to make the pilgrimage. Trust your instincts to guide you towards all that is unresolved in the unconscious realms of yourself. Be discerning between what seeks to distract you and what feels true to you. You are illuminating your own way.
Capricorn: Two of Wands (Reversed)
An undeveloped side of you is presuming itself to be looking at the world in its entirety at this time, but the position you’re in is obstructing your vision. This incomplete picture of the world is blocking the World behind it. You are under the impression that the world is in your hands, that you are in complete control, when reality is requesting more of a state of surrender. Examine your systems of thought and conditioning, and walk towards a fuller, more holistic perspective of the people around you. In doing stepping a bit down, in being closer to the Earth, you will leave behind a piece of yourself that no longer serves you, while bringing forth a stronger, more integral part of yourself.
Aquarius: The Empress (Reversed)
All of those long, seemingly endless days of doing are catching up to you, though your work was not done in vain. When you finally take a necessary, well-deserved moment of rest, the life you have been cultivating will have the chance to flourish without demanding of your involvement in each step. Trust that your insights, work, and teachings left an invaluable impression. With every life you touch you set something magic into motion; it’s okay to take a step back once in a while and enjoy your own harvest. Appreciate all you have accomplished and facilitated, though be mindful to consume in moderation else you risk falling quickly into scarcity again.
Pisces: The Chariot (Reversed)
You often sense various forces pulling you in opposite directions of each other, and in order to maintain the path of your choosing, you are being called to further merge the spiritual and material dimensions of yourself. When you allow the material realm to pull you too heavily, you fall off course. When you allow the spirit realm to pull you too heavily, you risk losing ground. This is not a time to release the reigns and let the reigns blindly pull you. Maintain awareness and a sensitivity to the present so you may move with the obstacles as they come.
Aries: Page of Wands (Reversed)
Look at you go! You have been branching into unknown realms, moving more confidently in solitude, and in turn your connection with your inner compass has strengthened. Becoming attuned to this was no easy feat, and although you’ve come a long way, you haven’t quite created a lasting foundation. You’re in a vulnerable position where you can really go in multiple directions at this point. Others are drawn to this newly discovered independence in you, so stand your ground and assert your ability to say “no” when unresonant opportunities present themselves to you. There are still so many parts of yourself to explore.
Taurus: Seven of Pentacles (Reversed)
Your giving and receiving energies have not been in balance lately, and because of this, those in the giving-spectrum are left feeling depleted, while those in the receiving spectrum are left with much more than they know what to do with. Be sure to set aside enough for yourself when you offer the fruits of your labor, while also being mindful not to accumulate more than you need in the material dimensions of your life. You will feel drained of the emotional labors you so readily offer, yet weighed down by an intuitive sense of wastefulness in these other areas. These patterns will not sustain itself, and for the sake of your mental, emotional, and physical well-being, it’s time for you to reevaluate your exchanges of energy.
Gemini: Ace of Cups (Reversed)
Your heart is coming forth in a way that is overflowing into every dimension of your life. The labors of your internal work have cleared the way for your authentic voice, and standing in your center in this way serves others by inspiring them to do the same. In each of your actions, when you speak from the highest expression of you, you light up the parts of others that were otherwise dormant. You are needed at this time. In being nourished, you have also become the nourisher.
Cancer: Seven of Wands (Reversed)
You’ve been taking on more than your energy-levels have the capacity for at this time, which is causing a great deal of anxiety. You’re doing a delicate dance between taking care of your responsibilities, and pushing yourself towards constant output, and sooner than later it will wear you out. Imagine the ways you can rearrange your life so that you can focus on one thing at a time. By giving each action your undivided attention, you will show up for your work, for others, and yourself with the presence and care you are capable of.
Leo: Seven of Cups (Reversed)
You’ve been carefully examining the layers of your consciousness; paying attention to your dreams, processing childhood traumas, and looking at the ways that you envision a life well-lived. Unravelling yourself in this way has revealed aspects of yourself that are daunting and uncomfortable to look at, so take your time with this process, looking only when you are ready, knowing that you will always have the room to carry each part of you. You are vast and you are always enough.
