The theme of today is the (Queen) Mother of Swords in Reverse. The of Swords suggests situations you are a person under extreme stress. I pulled a clarifier card, which significantly lightened the message of today, the Ace of Wands. “Out of struggle and anger comes boundaries and forward movement” I’m hearing. An explosion of new ways of doing things, which ground you, give you self-confidence grounded or discovered through creativity. It’s taking the stagnant ideas which weren’t serving you and propelling into a new direction. A new way of doing and being. (Ace of Wands)
In the past position, we have the 4 of Pentacles, which is suggesting you’re moving out of a phase of caution about how you spend your time, energy and money. I’m also feeling as though there’s a major shift in this realm. On this 4 of pentacles card, I see the whole diagram shifting counterclockwise. Suggesting that whatever used to be your north star has shifted. (Ace of Pentacles) Starting today, but not just today, examine the things you are paying attention to with your time and your mind, the things you are spending your money on. The suggestion is to use it to build the base foundation of your new career, project or way of being in the world. I keep seeing this real rotational energy. I’m seeing root chakra opening, actually. That’s it. Where you were feeling limited, you may start seeing those limits are cleared…. but remain focused and frugal. Is the advice. There will be a time when you can be a bit freer spending and abundant, but not yet. Hold any precious ideas close to the vest. Don’t share them until they’re launched….
In the present position, I’m seeing victory over beliefs and old ways of being that were no longer serving you. (6 of Swords) Karma may be sweeping in, helping you open your heart, and show you what really matters in the world. You’re moving from darkness into the light. From disconnection to connection. From pain and suffering to joy and happiness. This ultimately is a choice you have to make. And if there’s any situations today that ask you to, take them. It’s an affirmation to the universe that you’re done with the old self and ready for that connection you’ve been longing for. (Justice Reversed)
What’s blocking you and what’s surrounding you seem to be some self-doubt and lack of self-confidence due to heart break. (The Sun Reversed) (5 of Pentacles) (10 of Cups Reversed). Either someone in your life betrayed you, which caused you to doubt yourself and your own value, or you betrayed yourself by keeping yourself small) (or maybe you were the betrayer). Today apologize and forgive. Forgive yourself. In the process of learning, you need to make mistakes to know what you want and what you don’t. You grow, just like a toddler learning to walk, and falling down 100 times before he can walk across the entire room. It’s also hard to be your own cheerleader, if you don’t have a ton of people around you to support your goals, wishes, inner truth, gifts, etc. But that was all built into the plan of this life anyways. So, do what you can to forgive yourself, let that heart heal, and be the you you were always meant to be.
The beauty of this process is a new beginning is granted. You’re set free, to take risks and start a new path of learning and a new cycle. (The Fool)
What the guides want you to know: The Three of Pentacles is saying to get out of your own way. If you’re obsessing about what to do, just take the first step. Have the conversation. If you’re not sure about spending the money, check in with yourself. Will this help you be freer in the future? Will this help you bring the income you’re desiring? Is this a self-investment in your future? This card is suggesting taking the first steps to regain your inner strength.
What the guides say you’re not seeing: You’re done with the old way of being and doing.
Anything you’re doing that feels like a burden, either let it go, or recreate it to be fun. Rethink how it could be teaching you something, if you’re overwhelmed, get stuff off your plate. You need stability, creativity, and freedom right now.
What the guides want you to do: Commit to yourself, your project, your desire. The time for procrastination is over. If you don’t take action, you never will…You’ll stay in procrastination energy or self-doubt. Some action is better than no action.
It’s funny to me, because when I started the reading it had one energy and by the end transformed into a completely different message. That is exactly the energies of the day.
