Princess of Pentacles
Today is a day of learning and focusing on how you can apply what you’ve learned to your long-term goals.
The Princess of Pentacles (the Druid Craft Tarot’s version of the Page of Pentacles) — is always thinking ahead. About what she wants to do with her life (or her profession, or her studies, etc.) and how she can go about doing it.
Like all of the Pages in the tarot, there’s the promise of a wide open road ahead of you. A world of possibilities that have yet to be discovered. And unlimited resources for you to tap into.
There’s something sort of wild and unfettered about this Princess of Pentacles. She stands barefoot on a rock and gazes thoughtfully at the giant pentacle she holds in her hands. Behind her an esoteric symbol is etched into stone tablet.
As Mercury and Saturn come together today (in sextile, or 60° aspect), it’s a good time to start thinking seriously about what you can to to build toward your future. What seeds can be planted and plans can set in motion.
You may thinking of going back to school now or taking a night course. Or you may be working on your own evolutionary process. Either way it’s as much about learning as it is about applying what you’ve learned, as all of the Pages (or Princesses in this case) are in some position of just starting out.
No matter where you’re at in your journey there’s always something new to learn and some new way to improve on your skills. Whether the Princess of Pentacles is you or someone in your life, know that she”s here to remind you to never stop growing, learning or evolving.

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!

ARIES: King of Swords
This month you’re likely to be thinking more about doing business and finding your place in the world than anything else.
With a line-up of planets moving through your 8th house — the area associated with joint resources and other people’s money — as well as Mars (your ruler) joining Pluto in your public sector, the focus is going to be more on career and professional achievements.
The King of Swords is all about power and authority. Success, Accomplishment. Strategy. Intelligence. You’ll have all of these things at your fingertips and should be taking advantage of them — particularly in the first two weeks of the month.
This is a time for putting your ideas out there — verbally or in writing — and communicating them to others. It’s not the time for ambivalence or uncertainty.
Look at the King in this card. He’s a bit more colorful and flamboyant than we’re using to seeing with the King of Swords. He’s usually rather stoic and somber.
But this whimsical version is just spirited enough to capture the dynamic and playful Uranus in Aries transit you’re dealing with and just dignified enough to capture the Mars in Capricorn transit you’ve got moving through your 10th house.
This King says you can have the best of both worlds. It doesn’t have to be all work and no play. And you won’t get anywhere if it’s all play and no work.

Aries: Five of Swords
If you rush into something too quickly this month you may find that it comes back to bite you.
Think of what your Achilles heel is and keep an eye on it because it may not only be you who is affected. Someone will have your back and you need to be aware that your actions do not only affect you but others also.
If you find yourself at odds within a situation do not come out fighting because if you do you may find you have done exactly what the other person wanted all along and as there is total balance in this image you don’t want to go rocking any boats to put yourself at a disadvantage.
It may be that you are on the verge of leaving a relationship, a job or simply have had enough of your life at present and want to throw it all in and start something new.
However, what you do not need is action that is not well thought out… rather you need a plan.
With an eclipse in your sign on the 8th and Mercury retrograde for a large part of the month it will be difficult to see the woods from the trees but if you can imagine glimpses of your wishes coming into reality then you get the idea of what you need to do and why it is so important to hold off for the time being.

Have you been thinking of different ways to make money or add something to your life without selling out yourself or your enjoyment of life in doing so?
Today you may find yourself thinking about how you can do so and whereas the imagery in this card makes the answer look simple there are a few layers to it that perhaps you need to explore within yourself first before you see your way to clear to making new plans.
Look at the terrain this beautifully depicted tree sits on and the patterned swirls within the landscape.
Meditation may help you come to realise your path and if you can get outside today, into nature and walk under her calming influence the chances are your answers will come to you sooner.

It’s time to get enthusiastic about what you want to do with your life.
The Page of Pentacles can indicate the beginning of new ideas or skills you would like to learn specifically aiming at how you can increase your wealth or climb the ladder of success.
If you are at a crossroads with a decision in your life related to this you may wish to contemplate if you need further education or training to be able to attain the goal that you are reaching for.
Weigh up the skills and successes of your past as you can bring these forward with you into your new endeavour.
You need the compass indicated in the coin held in the Page’s right hand to show you the direction you need to go in order to attain the gold indicated at the Page’s right foot.
Do not hold yourself back with thoughts of why you cannot have what you desire… the past is behind you as can be seen from the skulls being firming held down with the Page’s left foot.
The vibrant red cloth indicates energy that can be used to reach your goal and the key around the neck shows that if you ask the right questions of yourself or of others they may open many doors to help you gain what it is you most desire.

ARIES: This month you’re going to be weighing different options and opportunities as you work toward manifesting your goals. If you’re feeling pulled in different directions, you’ll be working on bringing the divergent areas of your life back into focus.
You may be juggling funds, career options, or even relationship choices, and are called upon now to find a middle ground. Moderation and balance are integral parts of satisfying the dual desires of this archetype.
In this version of the card, we see a Gypsy fortune-teller performing an exotic dance ritual under a crescent moon. Her movements are fluid and effortless; in fact she almost appears to be in a trance.
She holds a pentacle in each hand — the light of the moon balanced between them.
Pentacles relate to mundane areas and material concerns. Therefore you may find yourself juggling funds this month, or you may be torn between saving it up and spending it on something you just don’t need.
You could also be trying to decide whether to make a major purchase or hold off on it until a later date. With Mercury retrograde until the 10th, your best bet is to hold off.
I always liked the idea of “one hand feeding the other” with this card: you don’t want to put all your eggs in one basket as you risk coming up empty handed. It’s best to keep some of your options afloat, until you’re clearer about the direction you want to go.
