One of my daughter’s drew these cards for the week ahead, while I was away . The central energy is all about your calling. Your life’s purpose. Something this week may have you champing at the bit to align your life with meaning. Are you burdoned by those Ten of Wands.? Shouldering more than your fair share? If you are aligned with your calling those responsibilities don’t feel as burdonsome. It’s time to delegate or drop tasks that have (upon closer inspection) actually become habit but have no basis or relevance to your current world or where you actually want to be.
You may then, as a result of this realisation find yourself going off in search of what’s missing (Eight of Cups). That something is likely to have an emotional resonance. Here, midweek, The Emperor makes it clear you can take the lead. It’s ok to step up to the plate and create the masterpiece you are meant to create. Of course, you may have to hone a few skills. The Emperor always has a strategy. The Five of Wands in this reading, is about rising to your own challenges. Maybe this is outside of your comfort zone, maybe the thought of it makes you want to stick with what you’re doing, but I’m here to tell you that nothing good comes without effort. Those ‘burdons’ mentioned earlier or things that are no longer needed, have to be put aside in order for you to focus on this new way of living, your new calling, the thing that brings you personal fulfilment. Currently, the imbalance has you paused (two of Pentacles reversed). There may be some concern about juggling finances but I feel it’s more about prioritisation of focus. The Knight of Wands reversed gives me that sense of hesitation. A reluctance to make your move… But why? Look ahead at The Star, this new path leads the way to your fulfilment. Not only that (as if that’s just a small thing?!) But also along the way you will find healing, perhaps one of your fears about stepping forward towards this purpose is past failure…but don’t worry following that guiding star will ensure you pass the obstacles and reach your goal.
