Today you may be reflecting on the different options that are available to you, as well as the different paths that are laid out before you.

You could find yourself at a pivotal juncture — in your career, your personal life or even with respect to your spiritual journey.

The Two of Swords encourages you to weigh the different options available to you before you make a decision. And with Mercury conjuncting the Moon’s North Node today, that decision could be very important.

Whenever a planet conjuncts the North Node it automatically opposes the South, as these two points are always in polarity.

Mercury’s aspect to the Nodes implies that decisions you’ve made in the past (South Node) are up for review at this time.

They can also greatly impact on your future (North Node), not just now but across many lifetimes.

The woman in this card sits perfectly still before two distinct but different paths. Aside from the scarf draped over her shoulder, she wears nothing but a blind-fold.

The swords in her hands are crossed before her, each pointing in a different direction.

There’s some inconsistency today in what you have coming in and what you have going out.

Whether this is money coming in and going out or your time being squandered away and you don’t know where it all goes as you run out of time to get things done it. One thing is certain… you are not coming up trumps when it relates to the fine act of balancing.

As Jupiter is inconjunct Chiron today the planet of excess (Jupiter) may have so completely had you running around in circles that you are thrown off balance when it comes to what you have actually been doing and coming up short on answers that make sense when you try to retrace your steps that got you to where you are now.

Chiron can be of help with self healing and wisdom here but Jupiter’s effects on it today are that wisdom is a bit thin on the ground and what wisdom and common sense is around is being blindsided.

This is not the day to go out and do a spot of shopping as it may turn out you spend so much that you can’t tally up the amount that went out to the value of the purchases that caught your eye. It is also not the day to forge headlong into a pile of bills and pay them without checking all the facts are straight and the figures are correct.

Queen of Swords

Queen of Swords

Decisions that you make today will require you to use intellect and logic rather than emotions and intuition.

The Queen of Swords signals a need for discipline. Whether you’re acting in this capacity or dealing with someone who embodies these qualities — like authority, self-reliance and impartiality — today you will need to rise to the occasion.

The Queen of Swords in most decks can be rather cold and austere. She can be critical and judgmental, detached from her emotions and unwilling to compromise her convictions. But this version emphasizes wisdom and maturity.

Notice the silver hair and tattered robes. She’s not here to impress anybody. She knows who she is and is comfortable in her own skin. She doesn’t wield her sword like a  weapon; she caresses it comfortably, just as her bare feet keep her grounded and rooted to the earth.

She may be a woman in your life: if so consider that you can count on her to tell you the truth. She’s got high standards and impeccable ethics, which she didn’t acquire by marching to the beat of anyone else’s drum.

Perhaps this is someone whose courage and strength you admire: an older woman, a widow often, someone who has weathered her share of disappointments and still holds her head high.

There’s a lot to be said for inner healing today as Chiron trines Saturn and sextiles Jupiter. This version of the Hermit will no doubt have you digging in deep to your emotions in an effort to bring to the surface that which is possibly hidden to you and is now on the verge of becoming illuminated.

This may not be an easy thing to do considering Venus and Saturn are also in opposition today so that which you discover may play on your mind and dance around your soul as you endeavour to draw it out and shed new light on it.

Not that I’m wanting to worry you in what you might discover. Step back and study the Hermit card. Look into the crystalline structure that is illuminated by your light and listen to what it has to say to you.

You are protected from any outside forces that try to endanger you as can be seen by the four animals on each corner of the card alongside the circular pattern that seems to immerse and enmesh you within the one way view into the deeps of your own thoughts and feelings.

This is not a day for partying or spending around a lot of people. You need the quietness of your own mind to work through what you wish to discover and make headway on.

Princess of Swords

Are you waiting to hear from someone today or expecting an important message?

Perhaps you’re in the process of negotiating a contract or settlement, and are preparing to sign on the dotted line.

The Princess (or Page) of Swords is a “messenger card.” You may hear from an old friend, receive news, or learn the answer to a nagging question — whether it’s the answer you were hoping for or not.

As with all the court cards, the Princess of Swords card refer to someone in your life (or coming in) or it can refer to a frame of mind that you need to adopt in order to meet your goals. If this is someone in your life now, you can expect her to cut to the chase, not mince words, and tell you the truth without sugar coating it.

In this version of the card, the Princess stands alert in field of wildflowers. A gentle breeze tousles her hair and cloak. Her sword is held high but blade down, and wrapped in a silken ribbon. A bird flies high in the distance, perhaps delivering a message to a far-off place.

The Princesses in the Druid Craft Tarot deck are the female versions of “Pages” in traditional decks. They’re youthful, sensitive, and sincere. They’re full of potential, lacking in worldly experience and sophistication and may be overly idealistic and naive.

You may feel like wearing your heart on your sleeve today, courtesy of the Princess of Cups.

The Princesses in the Druid Craft Tarot deck are the female versions of “Pages” in traditional decks. They’re youthful, sensitive, and sincere. They’re full of potential, lacking in worldly experience and sophistication and may be overly idealistic and naive.

In this version of the card, we see a tender young maiden standing in a clearing next to a stream. A gentle breeze tousles her robes and hair. She appears to be in a dream-like state: basking in the warmth of the sunlight as she cradles her chalice close to her heart.

There is a calm, gentle and serene energy about her, yet she’s also in touch with nature. She’s got her (bare) feet planted firmly on the ground.

As the embodiment of the first Water sign (Cancer in this case), this Princess expresses a more idealistic and less refined version than the other court cards. There’s a “babe in the woods” quality — literally — about her.

She’s pure of heart and gentle of soul, seeing only the good in others with the hopefulness that comes from youth and inexperience.
