This week’s central energy is all about your vision for your life! The Five of Cups could have you feeling a bit like you’re lacking something? When we start feeling this way we need a quick rain check. In the traditional version of this card we see the figure dwelling on his two spilt cups despite the fact he still has three full. In this card there’s a gorgeous orange sun on this horizon. It could be setting or it could be rising… No matter which way you view it, it certainly is something to enjoy in the present. Personally, in this reading, I view it as the new dawn, … something beautiful to look forward to … something you’ve visualised and feel is beneficial.
The Empress makes an appearance this week. Find ways to feel good in yourself. We see her now sat in front of that very same orange sunrise and what a sight! A little more time has passed and she knows her value. She is nourishing her dreams. The land around her is fertile and she holds a pomegranate in her hand (the connection to beyond this world). This is a sign to keep making your way through the abundant landscape towards what you want to see while soaking up all that is yours in this moment.
The Hanged Man reversed tells you that you’ve contemplated long enough. Keep with the active meditation and visualisation. Next to the Page of Cups reversed (Princess in this deck) it may be that you are waiting to hear from someone. Perhaps waiting on an answer that you feel will make some sort of difference to the outcome you desire. This may or may not be forthcoming but with the Justice card next to the page there is conversation or outcome looming and it will be the right one, in the sense that everything will find it’s balance. If you’ve been busy mastering a craft or skill the Eight of of Cups reversed reminds you are safe to not obsess over the details this vision is a broad one. Details can come later. Have a general feeling, the specifics can come later. We end the week with emotional clarity. The King of Cups has me feeling that your focus will be on how you feel about things. That emotional discernment is real and perhaps you have mastered the art of feeling extreme emotion without acting it out immediately. It’s likely this week you will get a sense of balance no matter what is going on around you. You’re balanced and in control of your inner world and that should feel good and when we feel good, good things happen!
