Ace of Swords
This is a day of new thoughts and new ways of doing things. With Mercury turning direct today, you’re ready to start thinking ahead.
It is also a day for changing your thoughts and ideas on something. Notice the butterfly wings around the sword. Venus and the Sun are also conjunct today, bringing grace, harmony, beauty and thoughts of love to the forefront.
Even the sharp edges of the sword are not enough to deter the butterfly from being this near the blade. It is almost as if you can throw caution to the wind and say/do whatever you want.
Not that you will as the butterflies show you have purity of thoughts and words and that which you think and say today will only serve your higher good.
The mauve and pink hues of the two butterflies work perfectly in your own self worth, love and use of intuition in your life.
Deliver your message with honesty and it shall go forth and reap you many rewards.
This is also seen in the butterfly precariously buckled to the handle of the sword. Nothing will hold you back from thinking your own mind today or speaking your own words.
Your thoughts are pure and aimed single-mindedly at the outcome you desire. If you have any mental tasks to accomplish today is a good day to do so whilst your mind is highly alert and focused on what you want.

Ace of Pentacles
You’re starting to manifest more abundance and prosperity into your life.
The Ace of Pentacles — like all Aces — represents the start of something new, and in this case it happens to relate to money. As in new financial opportunities coming your way. While you probably won’t see a windfall, it’s a positive affirmation that you’re putting your energy into the right areas.
You may have recently gotten a raise, started a new job or become the benefactor of someone else’s generosity. You could also be starting to see returns on your earlier investments. Either way, you should have more opportunities and more financial resources at your disposal than you’ve had in recent months.
You may also feel that your luck is changing. As the Ace of Pentacles is associated with a change in fortune — a positive change as I also see Aces as “Yes” cards — as long as the “yes” answer is a positive affirmation. It’s telling you to keep up the good work, to go after your dreams, and to see the bounty that’s coming your way as confirmation from the Universe that you’re on the right track.
In this rendition two brightly colored Japanese-style Koi or “lucky” fish encircle a single coin. Another fish is imprinted on the coin, assuming an almost Ouroborus-like configuration. The coin itself and the fish surrounding it, contain all of the colors of the rainbow. The idea that there is a limitless supply of money (or material resources) is well-depicted here.
