Six of Cups
You may feel the urge today to reach out to those who remind you of life’s simpler pleasures, such as a family member or a childhood friend.
The Six of Cups speaks of innocence, wonder, sentimentality and reminiscing about the past. You may be missing someone, longing for the comforts and companionships that have gone by the wayside over time.
You could also hear from an old friend unexpectedly today. Someone who’s been on your mind and who takes you on a trip down memory lane, reminding you of long-forgotten events that come rushing back to you in a wave of nostalgia.
This card is also about fantasy and make-believe. Notice the young girl in this card hosting a tea-part among her imaginary friends. Along with her treasured childhood toys there are birds, fish, fairies and elves.
Five of the six cups are teacups and the sixth is a golden vessel on an outcropping by the stream.
There are symbols here of abundance (fish), emotions (water), and luck (the 6th golden vessel). But it’s the sweetness and sincerity that stands out the most.
This is also true of memories — especially the happier memories — which tend to take on softer hues when we look back on them with longing.

Six of Swords
Have you been thinking of going on a journey? Planning it in your mind but for some reason putting it off or not wanting to go.
The Six of Swords shows you have a path laid out before you that you may not wish to take. Instead you may feel as if you wish to stick with the safe and comfortable route you are already taking with your life.
Often times when we are meant to change something but are resistant to it the thoughts and ideas we have will keep popping into our minds urging us on towards this change.
The Sun and Jupiter are in sextile today, making way for both clear thinking and a desire to be on the move. This transit can make you feel hopeful and optimistic for the future. It can serve as a beacon to guide in the right direction, even if the reasons are not yet clear.
Your unconscious will find a way to place synchronicities within your path until you finally get the message that you must change in order to grow.
In this card it looks as if you have help on the way where you may find you don’t need to do a lot yourself as you will be swept up and gently guided onto your next step. This is another feature of the Sun / Jupiter aspect, made all the more pronounced as Mercury eases into Libra.

Ten of Pentacles
You have the knowledge and power to do as you wish today.
The Ten of Pentacles is about money, success and acquiring that which you desire.
The lovely flowing rhythm to this Ten of Pentacles implies that all is well for you in this regard and finances are flowing in an abundant direction.
You ride on the tail of the dragon and where you sit looks pretty comfortable and nothing is going to topple you off. All is around you for the taking.
As you relax and survey your surroundings from this viewpoint you also have in your lap an orange ball. The colour orange is linked to the second chakra from which creativity springs.
As you hold it in your left hand you are drawing towards yourself the very talents you need to let loose to enjoy success.
Your right hand is open wide as if you are reaching for the pentacle in the centre of the card yet you do not need to overexert yourself as you know the pentacle shall come to you as success is assured.
The dragon that you sit on also gives a sense of kundalini energy coursing through you and as it reaches its zenith all that you need to know is revealed.

Queen of Swords
As we roll into the equinox today and the sun moves into Libra there is a sense that change is in the air.
Adding weight to this change is Pluto turning direct today and this means force although perhaps it is not the type of force you have in mind.
This version of the Queen of Swords is subtle. It is all about subtlety and aligning your thoughts, emotions and ideas into one clear intention and setting it lose upon the winds of change.
The colours in this card are all about spirituality so there is no brute force needed to attain your goals. It is more about relaxing and “listening” to that quiet place within yourself and then allowing this to flow through you as a message to the Universe in what you want next.
This type of action can be stronger than a full on assault to what you are wishing for as it takes you away from the “doing” and action mode and more into the feeling and emotional mode that you so often need to accomplish your goals. Add the power that Pluto lends to this and you have a very strong base on which to launch your intentions.
This Queen stands in a spiritual dimension. She is surrounded by messages so expect communication to play a large part of your day.

Two of Wands
Your hopes and dreams swim before you as you sit and ponder what you are going to do today.
You may have a plan that you are keeping it to yourself. From your point of view you have not put the finishing touches to it yet and you do not wish to take your first step but rather wish to wait until everything falls into place.
If you are having problems in a relationship you may not be seeing the other person’s point of view but the views and thoughts that are currently on your mind going around and around in circles and furthering a retreat within you that is surely not doing the relationship any favours.
However, even on saying this it may be what is needed as a situation that has become intolerable for you will require planning and answers as to how you can either fix it or remove yourself.
Notice the image of the lion with the unicorn horn. This may be a mythical creature but it is also a creature that can serve you well if you require self preservation.
It also shows you have a mind that will not only see one way out of your predicament but other perhaps more unusual ways too.

Seven of Wands
You may find yourself in a situation today that you need to come out fighting to protect yourself and those around you. If this is the case then make sure you have a game plan in place because the opposition looks as if they are not taking any heed of your words or actions.
If there is a situation building up in your workplace that looks as if it may blow up you need to take several steps back and watch from the side lines. Do not get embroiled within the game that is being played out here as it looks suspiciously like bullying and the more power you give to this bullying the more the bully will benefit from it.
You may wish to look at what rights you do have because even though you look like the “under dog” (or “under fox”) in this situation you have other avenues to explore and those avenues will need to be you keeping a clear head while you ascertain what legal rights you could use to get this bully off your back.
If you look at the image in this card you will see that you are perhaps trying to protect others with your behaviour or that you are trying to protect what you have earned whether this be your reputation or your position you will not back down and just hand it over without a fight.
There is also the position you hold within the image and it looks as if you are the one whose territory is being encroached on.

A client wants to know about a relationship that ended a few years back. It started, faltered and then fizzled out over the course of a year, without ever fully developing into the serious, committed relationship that my client was interested in.
Since January, their relationship has been “back on” again, after several different transitions (from periods of not speaking at all to attempts to maintain the connection as a friendship only, with a few ‘casual’ hookups in between).
Now though things seem to be moving forward again. And my client — Melissa — is curious about how this plays out in their cards and charts.
