After all the fanfare of yesterday you may be feeling a little more like some solitude today.
The Hermit is a card of going inside yourself to find your own strength and your own truth.
It is a card of wisdom… specifically the type of wisdom that comes from your own thoughts and experiences.
Sometimes when you have a problem or a goal there is only so much of the path forward that you can see. In this version of the card there is a distinctive area which is lighted by the illumination of the lantern whilst the remainder of the “picture” is outside of this illuminated area.
This does not mean you need to worry about what you cannot see and by and large what is outside the illuminated area is pretty dangerous including the cliff face immediately underfoot.
Nevertheless there doesn’t seem to be any risk you’ll take a step in the wrong direction. You’re well aware of what’s going on, what your part is in it and more important what you part is not in it thereby keeping your boundaries. Knowing if you overstep these boundaries you may very well find yourself in a perilous situation or at the very least one you do not want to be in.
The owl shows wisdom and this owl is alert! It is ready to alight if needs be and also surveying an area of your life that you may not be thinking about too strongly. For this reason you may find you begin to think of different areas of your life not with panic or worry but more with wisdom and answers to how you can change things.
If nothing else you can be assured you will have help and whilst this help seems to come from within you there is also a strength to you today that you know you do not have to hold everything together on your own. The staff in your hand is strong and steady… as are your thoughts and actions.

Seven of Wands
You are well protected today with the ability to take your ideas forward into other areas of your life without fear of what may happen next.
It seems you have spent a lot of time building power both within and without yourself and it is time to call this power forth now and use it to realise your goals.
You have the strength to accomplish anything you want and all it takes is that first step for the goal to roar forth.
What you are wishing for comes from your heart, intellect and intuition. Nothing and no one will hold you back as you have made sure everything is in place and you are well protected from anything going wrong.
Not for you the gentle energy that courses through one when they are getting ready to release a new project or chapter in their life.
You have planned this change for a while and know exactly how much energy you need to put into it.
The stars allow you to make more than one wish.
The lion gives you energy and a voice to be heard while you stand within a protected circle and launch what you have been hoping to begin for a while.
This image reminds me of manifesting and if you are wanting to manifest something today use this image to alter your mind and focus your intentions on what it is you hope to manifest into your life and expect it to happen.
Everything starts with a thought… today your thoughts are shouting!

As the new moon solar eclipse hits off today at 1 degree Scorpio you have the chance to consider your life anew.
Not only is the moon new but Venus is conjunct this aspect which will nicely allow you to consider your relationship and if this is not enough Mercury is almost ready to turn station and turn direct… once again allowing you to put your plans into action.
You may feel as if you have been handed a “golden opportunity” today and it is an opportunity that comes with change.
If you have been trying to change direction in any area of your life then now is the time to set the wheels in motion.
There is much to be happy and enthusiastic about as one thing after another changes for you and you are left with possibly not one but several directions in which to go next. It is almost as if a guardian angel surrounds you and illuminates the next step you should take.
If you have recently felt stuck or found yourself with many setbacks which have not only hampered your progress but put you out of sorts within yourself and left you emotionally drained then rest assured you are about to soar.

If you find yourself needing to draw on inner strength this month or gain help from those around you then don’t be afraid to ask.
You are not alone and you have plenty of resources to help you along your path. Even though you cannot see the final outcome you have an inner “knowingness” to help you on your way.
As the month progresses you should be feeling the changes around you as you seem to shed your skin and grow a new one… meaning… the changes you implement around you in your environment are coming from within and yourself as opposed to outside forces.
If there is a relationship you feel has outgrown its purpose and has been holding you back then you are well and truly on the road to releasing yourself from its clutches and what’s more you have the strength and resources to back you up.
Reach out to anyone you think may be of help to you now as you start your new cycle.
The moon in the background of this card may seem to be either in its first or last quarter or if you look at it again it could even be seen as an eclipse… and eclipses mean change!

The Chariot card is all about pulling all of your resources together to overcome the obstacles that are standing in your way. It’s about “taking charge” of your life — your goals, your decisions and your destiny — rather than just going along for the ride.
As with most versions of this card, the central figures are two rearing stallions and a Charioteer who is harnessing their divergent energies. But in this rendition the stallions are replaced by a white and black Pegasus, each pulling in different directions.
If you look closely though, they do overlap in the middle, right below the ankh — or “key of life” — symbol. The black and white references — day and night, good and evil, positive and negative, conscious and unconscious, etc. serve as a reminder that we need to harness those divergent forces in order to achieve mastery.
The Charioteer himself is clothed in ceremonial garb. Esoteric symbols — including the astrological glyphs associated with the zodiac and planets — are placed all around then, and are addressed in detail in the artist’s interpretation of this card.
What stood out for me though was the effortless way in which the Charioteer takes command of these creatures, guiding them through a sort of constellational sea, far beyond the reaches of civilization.

Four of Pentacles
This may be a day of hard work for you but does it really need to be that way? If you look at the scene bathed in sunlight through the stone slab what do you see and what does it represent for you?
The stone pillars show that there is hard work that is needed, laying the foundations down to get what you want and also perhaps putting in a little of your imagination into things to get what you want in the process.
In the pillars of stone surrounding the image you will see a crescent moon on top of the stone pillars which looks to sit on top of two stone hands clasped together.
Such is the effort you are willing to put into your current project to reach your dreams… it is as if you rule yourself with an iron fist and will not take any setbacks sitting down.
So what is it you have been forging to build and how much effort have you been putting into it possibly at the expense of other areas of your life and people being neglected?
The dream you are searching for is already in front of you and what a glorious sight it already is. A beautiful clear summer’s day, a calm sea and the sun shining without interruption.
