Ten of Pentacles

Ten of Pentacles

Today is a day for celebrating all that you have and for joining together with family members and all those in your life who you hold near and dear.

It’s a day for seeing abundance all around you. Or like the people in this card — the Ten of Pentacles from the Anna K. Tarot — expressing gratitude for all the blessings in your life, knowing there is plenty for all.

The Ten of Pentacles is a card of riches. If you are thinking to change your job or are in line for a promotion this is a great day to be cementing those thoughts in your own mind and looking at ways you can take yourself forward in your career.

There is a sense of solidarity in this image as if everyone has their place yet all look happy and comfortable within their roles and all is as it should be. No one is left out. No one is giving or receiving more than they are comfortable with.

Relationships take on a sense of balance and stability while communications take on a sense of understanding. This is a great day to be heard, and even small gestures will carry forward and can go a long ways.

The changes may not be apparent for some time but changes will come. If you are not communicating with another person and you are mulling thoughts over in your own mind take note of those thoughts as they have the capacity and greatness to turn into larger plans in the coming weeks. Whilst some thoughts start out small they can grow with such power that they take you far. Be careful what you think today because today is a day of greatness.

Ten of Cups

Today is a day for counting your blessings. It’s a day for expressing gratitude for the life you’ve created and for the loved ones and family members who’ve been such an important part of it.

It’s a day for finding your center and allowing the Universal blessings of love, gratitude, harmony and grace to flow through you.

The Ten of Cups — this version from the Anna K. Tarot — is a card of serenity, contentment and fulfillment. This ties in beautifully with today’s / Moon Venus conjunction and subsequent trine to Neptune.

Sometimes this is a marriage card, a joining together with someone else who shares your happiness. Sometimes it’s an accomplishment card — coming to a point where you’re able to count your blessings and express contentment with your present circumstances.

This extends well beyond financial or material security. It’s more about family, lasting friendships and a comfort — in your home and your community — surrounded by people you love.

You want to align yourself with a vibration of gratitude as the Ten of Cups speaks of not only getting what you’ve “asked” for (via the principles of law of attraction) but also being thankful for all that you’ve received.

This is not the time to think about what is lacking in your life but rather what makes it complete. And while you don’t want to be resting on your laurels, it’s important to acknowledge those who are most important to you and who keep your cup continuously full.

Two of Rods

You may feel like you’re at a cross-roads today — fretting over decisions that are weighing heavily on your mind, and afraid of making the wrong move.

This version of the Two of Rods — from the Anna K Tarot — illustrates this dilemma beautifully. There are several different paths to take but no clear direction. And no idea what is on the other side.

In this respect the Two of Rods is as much about trust as it is about action. Trusting that whatever path you take will lead you to where you need to be.

Mars and Uranus are in inconjunct today. This is a rather tense aspect that can see you at odds between what you are motivated to do (Mars) and whatever curve-balls the Universe wants to throw your way (Uranus).

It may be frustrating, but look at the figure in this card. He’s not getting anywhere by plopping himself down on the side of the road and worrying about taking the wrong path. He may be avoiding pitfalls by sitting there doing nothing, but he’s also missing out on potential opportunities.

The Two of Rods says that while you may not have all the information you need to make an informed decision, you’re still better off doing something rather than allowing yourself to become paralyzed by fear. This card encourages you to pick yourself up and dust yourself off and be willing to take a stand.

King of Swords

As the Sun and Mercury come together today in Libra, you may find yourself needing to bring forth your problem solving skills.

Like the King of Swords in this card — from the Anna K. Tarot — you may need to stay one step ahead of the game as you plan your next move.

The King of Swords is intelligent, strategic and analytical. He’s inherently impartial. He doesn’t mince words, and he doesn’t listen to excuses. He makes his decisions based on logic and reason rather than compassion and empathy.

He’s a no-nonsense individual who is expected to mete out justice with a fair and authoritative hand. He may be a parent, a supervisor, a judge, or even a friend that steps in to give you a reality check when you need one most.

As with all court cards this can also refer to you — or to a state of mind that you need to develop in order to preserve a sense of order in your life. You may have felt taken advantage of by someone who’s overstepped their bounds and this card encourages you to resolve that problem by taking a more authoritative stance.

The King of Swords encourages you to be decisive and to start thinking ahead. It asks you to clear away the debris and work on attaining better focus. And it challenges you to step away from emotional attachments and make your decisions based on what is right, fair, and most importantly best for you in the long run.

 Eight of Wands

If you’ve been waiting to hear from someone — or expecting to receive news from afar, changes are good you’ll receive your answer today.

The Eight of Wands — this version from Anna Klaffinger’s gorgeous Anna K. Tarot — represents a message that is coming your way. And while the woman in this card is clearly happy to receive her message, it’s not necessarily good news.

Today’s Saturn square Mercury says it may actually be a let down or disappointment. It may not be something you want to hear. But the gloved figure delivering the message — and the red ribboned presentation — says it is going to be important.

There are other prominent “messenger” transits today: Mercury is also conjunct Venus and Mars trines Saturn.

The Mercury / Venus conjunction generally is good news, or at the very least a diplomatic way of handling it. But keep in mind that Venus is still squaring Saturn which can put a damper on even the best of news. The Mars / Saturn transit offers a positive means for dealing with any setbacks or problems that arise.

Your goal today should be to be prepared for any messages that come your way — whether these are delivered in a literal or figurative form. How you respond to them and the steps you take upon receiving them will go a long ways toward determining your next steps.

Ace of Swords

Today’s card — Ace of Swords — is all about achieving the kind of clarity that’s necessary to focus your intentions and accomplish your goals.

The Ace of Swords can act as a tool for manifesting. It is raw, pure, unharnessed energy that can be channeled into something both powerful and magical.

It can act as a lightning rod for either positive or negative energy, depending on how it’s used. It refers to getting to the heart of the matter, cutting through the BS, speaking your mind and honoring your truth.

But the Ace of Swords can also be somewhat aggressive and argumentative. When used negatively it really does “cut like a knife” with respect to cruelty or hurtful words. For this reason it’s sometimes best to put some distance between yourself and whatever outside influences are triggering reactions.

As the Sun moves into Gemini today, you may find yourself dealing with competing urges. You may be torn between different options or feel pulled in different directions. But the Ace of Swords is able to cut through the noise and distractions and can make it easier for you to clear the air enough to make an informed decision.

The woman in this card — from Anna Klaffinger’s gorgeous Anna K. Tarot — has gotten both altitude and distance as she stands on a ledge looking out over the landscape below. She’s got a panoramic view of what lies ahead by standing back and assessing it from afar.

Think about what’s been weighing on your mind that needs to be decided once and for all. And what discussion needs to be had in order to iron out any differences. The Ace of Swords encourages you to speak truthfully, but to do so from the heart.  Be considerate of the feelings of others: remember that words can be both helpful and hurtful, so use yours wisely today.

Anna K Magician

The Magician

Today’s Sun / Uranus conjunction should see you tapping into your own mental resources as a means of unleashing your personal power — your own genius, brilliance and ingenuity.

The Magician card  refers to the divine spark that is within all of us, and encourages us to use it to accomplish our goals.

Think about areas in your own life where you’ve felt you didn’t have what it takes to accomplish your goals. It could be a career move or a relationship decision or even a personal change such as dieting, quitting smoking, tackling self-defeating thought processes, etc.

The Magician in this deck is in the midst of creating a divine spark of his own. He’s conjured up a glowing energetic spiral: manipulating the air around him to create magic out of nothingness.

He stands before a table with a wand, pentacle, sword and goblet carefully arranged on top. These correlate archetypally to the four elements (fire/wands, earth/pentacles, air/swords and water/cups respectively).

This is a common theme among the different versions: having all of the necessary resources within reach.

Fire = action, initiative and drive. Water = emotions, feelings and intuition. Air = intellect, ideas and decisions. Earth = Structure, boundaries and material concerns. Together these assets make for some powerful “magic” that you can tap into and harness at will.

Ask yourself: “What is it I need to learn today?” or “What is it I have to teach?” The Magician encourages you to tap into your highest personal reservoirs and to access skills you may not even realize you have. Whether you are the teacher today or the student, tap into that Sun / Uranus energy as well: it may just be the spark that’s needed to get you moving in the right direction.
