Three of Wands
Today is going to be a good day to be thinking about progress you’ve made on goals you have underway as you plan your next moves.
You may feel the need to take a breather, or “rise above” it all in order to get an overview of how much you’ve already accomplished.
The Three of Wands refers to steps that have been taken and seeds that have been planted that are now starting to produce results. You can look at how far you’ve come and use that as a springboard for advancing your goals.
You can see the work in progress aspect in this card with the chain of flowers the angel figure strings together from the top of her perch. While it’s clear this has been an ongoing project, it looks like she’s hitting her stride now with the altitude she’s attained.
That’s one important feature of the Three of Wands — setting things in motion so that the work you’ve already done keeps building on itself while you expand your horizons. In doing so your project (or your goal, or your relationship) begins to take on a life of its own — much like the chain of flowers in this card.
The Three of Wands refers to creativity and adaptability as much as it does to acumen. It’s about seizing the opportunities that come your way and then incorporating them into your plans.
Notice the fox sniffing at the flowers in the background. This could spell trouble and there’s a chance our little angel will have to rethink some of her goals. But if she’s put enough of forethought into laying her foundations, she won’t have any trouble turning incidents like these to her advantage.
The Three of Wands encourages you to push past your limitations and expand your horizons. It will mean stepping outside of your comfort zone and exploring uncharted territories. And while you run into pitfalls or have to take detours along the way, know that these are often blessing in disguise that can open up a whole new world of possibilities.

Thoughts flow through you mind today that are uplifting and enlightening.
It is time to rise above anything that has been bothering you and look towards new ways of thinking.
Notice that the darkest part of this image is underneath the feet yet the feet do not touch it. It is as if by rising above a situation or your thoughts on this situation that you free yourself from it.
White butterflies are seen in abundance and most of these are above the figure’s head meaning new thoughts are coming to you and these thoughts are pure and true. They will guide you and further help to set you free.
There is one butterfly held within the hands giving the impression that if you speak your truth and let it fly then you will be further released from what has held you trapped.
With the wings holding the figure aloft looking remarkable like the butterflies flying around it there is a sense of transformation especially as the majority of the butterflies are around the crown chakra which is lit up and shining.
Do not dismiss any thoughts that pass through your mind today for they are there to show you a different way of thinking.
The yellow/golds of the gown worn is also reflected in the crown chakra showing there is protection around you today. If you need to tackle something which you have been putting off then today is the day you will either confront what has been bothering you or rise above it to the point it no longer is a problem for you.
What do you have to lose? Either way you will walk away intact and unaffected with a sense of freedom.

With Venus entering Capricorn today you can almost sense the change in energy around you when it comes to love.
The image on this card depicts a more self centred love versus the open, happy go lucky type of love seen when Venus is in Sagittarius.
Six butterflies flutter around the image. Three are perched on the figure whilst the other three fly freely.
The number six in numerology is the number for Venus and the halving of this number shows that there is balance in your emotions today. You feel the emotion, you let it go.
There may have been something that you have been holding onto recently that you have come to understand you need to let go of.
Today is the day to do this especially as you are so balanced on the outcome. All emotions flow to you and from you and this in turn gives you power over negative emotions.
The depiction of a ballerina in this image also shows that you are not only emotionally balanced but physically you are striving for health and balance in your life.
I am particularly loving the heart image in the lower right side of the card as it twines within the root system to feed and nourish loving kindness to you. It may not look too green or nourishing but it is what you give out and draw in that will change this balance for you.
With the hard decisions behind you and time to focus on yourself today should be a day to remember!

It may be time to start treating yourself as a Queen and putting your own needs and wants first rather than doing what everyone else wants you to do and scrutinising over every decision and move you make.
If you were looking for a promotion at work you will need to be equally on the alert that you are not seen as someone who is not able to stand their ground and do what is needed.
Because while others see you as no threat they will pass by you and possibly go over you when it comes to a promotion at work which leaves you back at square one.
On the other hand if you are taking care of or nurturing someone else this is an excellent month for you as you seem to know just what to do or say at the right moment.
Relationships may be coming under scrutiny for you and your own place within the relationship being put under the microscope so to speak.
Don’t be afraid to make the changes you see needed change and don’t be held back by over analysing everything around you.
Everyone has the right to do what is best for them and from the image on this card there doesn’t look like there is any chance you would hurt someone in the purpose.

Three of Cups
It’s the weekend and time to let your hair down, go out and have some fun and generally not worry about a thing.
The Three of Cups stands for happiness and merriment.
Happy times abide and though you soar in the exuberance of the “moment” remember what you do in this moment may have consequences that bring you down to earth (or diving for cover under water) at some point in the future.
There’s a general sense of excitement as you know you are able to let your hair down and be social on oh so many levels.
There’s the level of soaring high and being so engrossed in your own pleasure that you ignore or don’t notice what is going on around you.
And of course, there’s the coming down to earth with a splash where you may have made a fool of yourself and decide that hiding your face for a while is the best thing to do so you are not too embarrassed.
Then there’s all those levels of excitement in between where you can flit from one social engagement to the next or one person to the next just like a butterfly.
You may even like to choose a coloured fin on one of the mermaids and imagine what that colour brings out for you and your mood.
Whatever you choose to do today (or tonight) there is a sense of joy and abandonment of all your worries around it. It’s as if you don’t have a care in the world and from the look on the face of the highest mermaid in this card all your cares and worries are dropping away as you soar higher and higher.

Wheel of Fortune
Round and round and round you go… where you stop… nobody knows.
Life may see a bit like a merry go round for you today and there doesn’t seem much you are willing to do in getting off the ride.
Perhaps you are feeling as if you have no power left and as the pin piercing your solar plexus (which rules power both taken and given to others) area shows you are not willing to struggle and make things worse.
Indeed if you did struggle you may also ruin those beautiful butterfly wings you are counting on in the background to free you from what binds you.
If you look closely at this card though you will see that the only thing that is holding you back is the pin in your solar plexus which is only one part of your body.
Plus the white feather on your head suggests you have more going on in your thoughts than anyone suspects. Specifically you are coming up with a solution to your dilemma and that solution will be pure of thought and take you far.
The colour red, which is quite pronounced in this card, suggests the need for action and yet at the same time it is nicely balanced with the purity of white.
Perhaps when the curtain does fall on the problem you are contemplating on today you will be the only one left standing and also have the choice as to whether to “fly” away and leave the situation that put you in this position in the first place or brave it out for another round.

There’s a full moon lunar eclipse today in Aries which is also happening very close to the unpredictable planet Uranus.
Although there is a lot going on with the eclipse it seems you just want to hide away and be by yourself without anyone around you except your own thoughts and emotions for company.
If you find this is the case then take a good look at this image because you look a bit “blue” and not too sure of yourself or what is going on around you.
The water (emotions) is so still you can see your reflection perfectly in it yet you are not looking at yourself you are looking straight ahead, without movement, without wanting to upset the balance of what is before you… and without seeing the necessity to scan your surroundings for any threats.
The skulls in the water eerily reflect below the water’s surface giving them the impression of beautiful shell like structures and an indication that what is actually around for you cannot be seen on the surface but is far deeper than you or anyone else may suspect.
It is almost as if the past is coming back to haunt you right when you don’t want it too.
If you find yourself in this situation today, especially with a full moon eclipse in Aries conjunct Uranus you may find it difficult to remain as clear and cool headed as you wish.

King of Cups
The King of Cups is intuitive, sensitive and wise. And in this version, he is a she. And what, pray tell, do you think she is doing looking like a little girl in a nursery playing with her toys? If you look closely though you will see that the gown she is wearing actually mimics that of a sea.
The boat, with the young man… whose hands are held out to her, is actually sailing towards her and the sea dragons who surround him in an effort to hold him back are also creatures within the “sea” of her dress.
Today the moon is in Scorpio and it follows close on the heels of yesterday’s full moon eclipse in Libra. Whilst Libra is the sign connected to relationships… Scorpio is the sign of secrets and our unconscious desires. It is a sign of intensity and no half measures yet this image of the King of Cups says it’s ok to play around a little with what you are feeling, nothing is going to come up and grab you as long as you keep the “nightmares” away from you.
These nightmares may encompass a relationship where you are keeping the other person at arm’s length in a bid to keep yourself safe because your feelings have been hurt in the past and you are not willing to open your heart again and let them in.
If you find this is the case and the other person is willing to go through thick and thin to break down your barriers even at great risk to themselves then you may wish to cut them some slack and shake out those demons which are not only holding you back but holding the whole situation back as they stop anyone getting close to you.
