Six of Swords

ARIES: Six of Swords

You may be on the verge of making important changes in your life, and in doing so will have to think about what you’re taking with you and what you need to leave behind.

This doesn’t necessarily mean material things; in fact that’s rarely what it means. It’s more about attitudes and belief systems, as well as a life you may have built and dreams you may have dreamed that are no longer capable of sustaining you.

The Six of Swords — this version from the Morgan Greer Tarot — is a card of transition and change. Moving from one “place” to another, if only in your mind. Notice how the woman in this card is huddled and shrouded from view. She’s protecting herself from more than just the elements.

She may be mourning the loss of her previous existence, or she may be reflecting on the choices she’s made to leave it all behind. She’s put her faith in the ferryman to get to her safely to her new destination.

Notice too that while the waves are choppy beneath them, they start to smooth out the closer they get to the other shore. And speaking of that other shore, the landscape’s silhouette appears to be promising. It’s lush, flourishing and full of potential.

This is the message behind the Six of Swords. You may not be where you want to be just yet, but you’re moving in the right direction. The Six of Swords reminds us that we’re not alone. We don’t get to the other side without assistance from someone, even when that “assistance” comes in the form of a setback that forces us to change direction.

It also provides clarity and perspective. We may see things we don’t want to see — or admit to ourselves — but it’s that kind of clarity that motivates us toward change. Take some time this month to reflect on where you are and where you want to be heading. This is the first step, courtesy of the Six of Swords, toward manifesting your goals.

Four of Cups

ARIES: Four of Cups

This month you may feel like you are in a world of your own making and not willing to come out of it for anyone or anything.

No matter how good an offer is that is made to you you prefer to stay within your own little world and not make any plans or moves just yet. The Four of Cups — this version from the fabulous Ceccoli Tarot — is about boredom, melancholy and complacency, all of which are aptly depicted here.

This is not a bad place to be as it gives you time to sit back and survey and contemplate what is around for you and also as you are making yourself scarce from others, it inadvertently puts you in a position where you can perhaps command more than you have received in the past.

You actually know what you want. Notice you have your eyes on the nautilus shell (or is it a snail’s shell?) which is at the moment beyond your reach.

You may have desired this for a long time and not known how to attain it. If there is something in your life that you have been wanting for a long time and it has not shown up use this month to come up with ways to bring it into your life.

The bubble that you sit in shows that you are quite happy where you are but you may need to upset that balance, for a while anyway, to actually make your dreams come true.

Today you want to focus on what’s right in your world rather than what might be wrong. The Sun card is all about happiness, optimism and vitality: it’s about being present in the moment and celebrating being alive.

Look around you and take notice of the blessings that surround you. Step away — at least mentally — and turn your attention away from work and mundane affairs long enough to soak in the energizing rays of the Sun.

The Sun card — this version from the Crystal Visions Tarot — represents energy and vitality. Feeling happy to be alive. Getting in touch with your inner child, your true authentic spirit, the part of you that longs to embrace life with ever fiber of your being.

When we think of the Sun, we think of warmth, light and life. It warms our spirits as well as our bodies; it brightens our moods as well as the outside world, and it brings life to our dreams and goals as well as to every living thing on the planet.

The Sun card in the Tarot is much the same way. It refers to the wonder and glory of being alive. Of feeling warm, confident, radiant and spirited. Its attitude is that “everything is as it should be” today, for you and all around you.

The Sun reflects your own inner light and inspires you to let it shine. It encourages you to say yes to life rather than letting your troubles hold you back. It tells you to turn your face to the Sun rather rather than looking back over your shoulder toward whatever caused you to dim your light in the first place.

The Sun card is all about optimism, enthusiasm and personal radiance. It’s about being yourself and allowing yourself to “shine,” without any pretense or constraint. Today may be the shortest day in the year (for those in the Northern Hemisphere) but the Sun is still shines. We may not always see it but it’s always there — and serves as a reminder of the warmth and vitality that each of us possess

Today’s New Moon in Virgo brings with it a partial solar eclipse of the Sun. As the Moon crosses between the Sun and Earth, it obscures the Sun’s light for a brief moment in time before it reveals it again, with newfound insight and clarity.

While the Moon in this version of the card — from the beautiful Cosmic Tarot — is clearly less than full, the important feature here is the Sun shining brightly, spreading its golden rays over the land. It warms the earth and brings life to the valley below.

The Sun card represents energy and vitality. Feeling alive and happy to be alive. It refers to getting in touch with your inner child, your true authentic spirit, the part of you that longs to embrace life with ever fiber of your being.

Today’s eclipse can take that away from you for a moment, and have you reflecting on what needs to be changed. What is no longer working for you? What needs to be put to rest? And what do I want to manifest in my life from this day forward? These are the things you want to be thinking about today as you bask in the Sun’s warm light.

Three of Pentacles

ARIES: Three of Pentacles

July is a good month to join heads with like-minded people in the spirit of community and cooperation. The Three of Pentacles — this version from the Cheimonette Tarot — is all about team-work, group efforts and collaboration. It’s a reminder that two (3 or 4) heads are better than one and that none of us can achieve alone what we can achieve with others.

Although many aspects of this card emphasize friendship and celebration, this one focuses more on integrating the disparate parts of self. Body, Mind and Spirit come to mind. The Three Pentacles in this version contain a Sun Face, an Eye and a panoramic scene with yogi and horse figures.

The disks are all interconnected with the Sun disk shining a little brighter over the other two. A crescent moon with another eye rests below the three disks. In addition to teamwork and collaboration, the Three of Pentacles also speaks of hitting your stride and seeing the initial results of something you’ve been working hard on.

It speaks of breathing new life into a project or finding the “key” to something that has been puzzling you and holding you back. The Three of Pentacles — like all threes — refers to the initial stages of progress where you’ve taken an idea (the Ace), put it into production (the Two) and are making progress now toward creating something real (the Three).

The Sun moves into Cancer today, marking the Summer Solstice and the longest day of the year, measured by the amount of time between Sunrise and Sunset. This is true for those in the Northern Hemisphere; it’s exactly the opposite (Winter solstice and shortest day of the year) for those in the Southern Hemisphere.

When we think of the Sun, we think of warmth, light and life. It warms our spirits as well as our bodies; it brightens our moods as well as the outside world, and it brings life to our dreams and goals as well as to every living thing on the planet.

The Sun card in the Tarot is much the same way. It refers to the wonder and glory of being alive. Of feeling warm, confident, radiant and spirited. Its attitude is that “everything is as it should be” today, for you and in the world around you.

The Sun in this card — from the gorgeous Tarot of Durer — smiles down on two tiny angels hovering over a tranquil landscape. In the distance you can see a Kingdom set high on a cliff, and below it a sailboat gliding through the water.

But front and center, in the here and now, the focus is on these two little cherubs. They are “in the moment” basking in the warmth of the Sun’s glow and partaking in the earthly bounty that is theirs for the taking.

Offsite things may not be so picture-perfect. We know that there are evils in the world, poverty, sickness and war. We know that it’s not always so easy to live in the moment or be happy with what we have. And this is where the inscription at the bottom of the card — In Hoc signo vincescomes in.

This phrase translates from Latin into “By this sign you will conquer.” It was seen in a vision by Constantine the Great and his army just before a victorious battle. Later on it was chosen as the motto for the Knights Templar. It means that while there are hardships and difficulties all around us, we do have the power to rise up and overcome.

As we move into the Solstice today and embark on a new season, take the time to think about what is right in your world. What hardships you’ve been able to overcome and what messages you’ll want to carry forward. The Sun card reminds you that there is much to be thankful for and that spreading your own warmth onto others can go a long ways toward healing our planet.

Today you want to focus more on what is right in your world rather than what might be wrong. The Sun card is all about happiness, optimism and vitality: being present in the moment and celebrating just being alive.

Look around you and take notice of the blessings that surround you. Step away — at least mentally — and turn your attention away from work and mundane affairs long enough to soak in the energizing rays of the Sun.

The Sun is a happy–go-lucky card that speaks of “seizing the day.” It encourages us to cast our worries aside and tap into the childlike wonder that inspires us to laugh, play, sing and dance — like the joyful figures in this card.

There’s a sense of buoyancy and effortlessness associated with this card. The Sun makes a radiant appearance, high in the sky above, shining its light on the playful figures dancing in the sand.

Notice how uninhibited and free-spirited they are in this version — from the Feng Shui Tarot — as they frolic along the shore. They may be dancing to music that only they can hear. Or they may be making their own music, thus creating their own joy.

The Sun reflects your own inner light and inspires you to let it shine. It encourages you to say yes to life rather than letting your troubles hold you back. It tells you to turn your face to the Sun rather rather than looking back over your shoulder toward whatever caused you to dim your light in the first place.
