Tarot Card of the Week: March 27 – April 2, 2017
Knight of Pentacles
This week should see you taking a more serious look at where you’re heading, with respect to your career, your professional goals, your education, your finances and your “brand.”
The Knight of Pentacles is generally all about taking things slow and steady with a keen eye on the future and the discipline to keep “plodding along” as you move toward your destiny.
As with all the Court cards, this can be someone presently in your life (or coming in) or it can represent a frame of mind that’s necessary for you adopt right now.
Don’t make the mistake though of focusing too much on the nuts and bolts of achieving success. If there’s any negative aspect that can be associated with this card it’s usually the dearth of inspiration that can lead to getting stuck in a rut of tedium and routine.
But this Knight of Pentacles doesn’t appear to be lacking in inspiration at all. We see him pausing at the onset of a vibrant and colorful path, reaching up to the heavens. Is he praying for guidance or expressing his gratitude?
Tarot Card of the Week: April 18, 2016 – April 24, 2016
Five of Wands
With Mars and Pluto both now retrograde, you may find that your competitive urges are not only being reawakened this week but also potentially misguided and misdirected.
These are both very passionate archetypes (with Pluto being the higher octave of Mars). But the stationary retrograde energy can force it inward, and as you know what goes in must always come out.
It can magnify their respective impulses: anger, aggression, impatience and combativeness (Mars) and power, control, intensity and forcefulness (Pluto).
It can see you fighting for the sake of fighting, acting without thinking, or ignoring repercussions. It can manifest as refusing to see another’s point of view or being so invested in your own that you fail to hear them out.
On the up side, these transits can increase your natural confidence and self-esteem. They can see you feeling invincible, to the extent that you’re willing to put yourself out there — letting nothing stand in your way. But on the downside they’re potentially careless and reckless — especially if you allow your ego to take charge.
