Coming on the heels of yesterday’s Death card, what a treat it is to see such an uplifting symbol of hope and inspiration that is the Star card.
With Venus sextiling Neptune today, what better card to describe the illuminating thoughts and ideas that are running through your mind… or should I say gently coming to the surface of your thoughts in a way that is so clear and calming that you wonder why you didn’t see them before.
Any problems you have been having that you’ve been finding it difficult to find yourself clear of may start to take on a life of their own today as they fall back and you enjoy the inspirational and creative aspect of Venus sextile Neptune.
The woman in this card is transfixed on a mutli-facted Star which hovers above her open hands. She appears to be almost in a trance as she reflects on the glowing Star before her.
This is a time when you don’t have to push for answers, ideas or actions… it is a day to just sit back and daydream to the surface what you have for so long been trying to get to the bottom of.
Meditation would work well for you today as would spas treatment that puts you in a state of relaxation. Make sure you’re surrounded by peaceful, loving company and if not remove yourself from any negatives in your life because you don’t want to look at the flip side of a transit like this which translates into your hopes, dreams and wishes turning into a nightmare through absorbing others’ negativity.

Six of Pentacles
Where have you come from and where are you going? The Six of Pentacles implies balancing the scales. Sometimes you gain and sometimes you lose.
In this rendition of the Six of Pentacles we see a young girl about to kiss a frog. Yes… I know what you’re thinking and you’re probably right. We all kiss a few frogs before finding our Prince or Princess Charming and it may be that we need to balance up the gains and losses of each particular “frog” we encounter to truly see what is underneath and what we are willing to take on or sacrifice in different situations.
Venus is conjunct the south node today implying that we are faced with challenges that we would rather shy away from. As Venus is the planet of love the challenge will be emotional.
If you are looking at needing to make a decision you may find that you are focused on your past and what happened “then” versus what is really happening “now” and your thought patterns are confused by this making it doubly difficult for you to come up with an answer.
The girl in the image may also mean you are coming from your own childhood expectations of what love and relationships should be about and perhaps a bit more give and take is in order. If you are in a relationship which is about all give and no take you need to have a good look at what you are willing to continue to do to keep the relationship afloat.

As the Sun moves into Gemini today it is a good time to look at the duplicity in your own nature or that of someone around you.
We all have different layers to our persona and do not show these characteristics to everyone we meet. In fact, only a few of us can say we are able to share 100% of ourselves with others and even then… there remains a question mark on whether this is the absolute truth. Perhaps there is a percentage of our real selves that we hide even to ourselves.
Enter the Sun into Gemini… a card traditionally associated with that of the Lovers in most tarot decks. A card of love but is it love of another or love of the reflection we see of ourselves when we look in the mirror or into our own hearts as we try to fathom out what is truly real for us?
On the surface the image on this card looks to be of 2 identical women but look closely and you will see tiny differences including weight, facial asymmetry, position of hands and stars and my favourite… hair under the armpit… lol.
What may be obvious to you as you look in the mirror at your identical image may not be obvious to other people.
Others may perceive you differently to how you perceive yourself and those little flaws which matter to you are not such a big deal to them. In other words… it’s time to accept yourself as you are… flaws and all. What is your “ideal” may not be the “ideal” of others.

Today you may have to made a decision that calls for you to detach from any personal investment and approach things objectively and impartially.
In this version of the card, a woman stands in a clearing with a pair of tiny orbs hovering inches above her grasp. She stares at them, transfixed, as though she’s channeling all of her energy into keeping them afloat.
You can almost feel the electricity in the air — notice her hair standing slightly on end and the orbs glowing above her hands. If you look closely you’ll see that she also appears to be levitating — her feet barely touch the ground.
A scale hangs from a tree on her left and a sword is driven into the ground on her right. These are common themes with the Justice card. They represent fairness, wisdom, reason and intellect.
The Justice card refers to Universal justice — right vs. wrong rather than what you might desperately hope for or want to happen.
In this respect if you’re dealing with a legal situation, workplace drama, marital discord, or some other problem that calls for third-party mediation, know that this is the kind of Justice that will prevail in the end.
