The High Priestess
As the Sun trines Neptune today, you may be feeling more sensitive, more intuitive, and more aligned with the inner-workings of your psyche.
This transit can bring in psychic impressions, such as astral travel, lucid dreams or déjà vu experiences. While that may be a bit unnerving for you at first it can open up doors for you that you never dreamed possible.
The High Priestess is a strong feminine energy — regardless of your gender. It speaks of intuition, perception and wisdom, and all the secrets of the universe unveiled.
In this version of the card we see repeated themes of timelessness and esoterica. There’s a photo of a Victorian-era woman laid across a set of ancient sky maps.
A spiraled time-piece — stretching out to infinity — and a crooked wand are also present. But most prominent of all is the High Priestess’ all-knowing gaze.
She is both young and old, embodying both innocence and wisdom. She is the keeper of secrets, knowledge and mystery.
You may be getting more in touch with your own intuition, or thinking about delving into the mystery schools — learning tarot, astrology, numerology, etc. Or you may find yourself experiencing profound instances or deja vu or synchronicity.

Seven of Swords
You may be second-guessing yourself today or looking at recent events with a tinge of regret.
The Seven of Swords — like all Sevens — requires you to evaluate all the different sides of a complicated situation, and arrive at a solution that causes the least amount of distress.
It can refer to a moral dilemma or one with no easy solution, such as a decision that favors head over heart.
The Swords in this card are double-sided. On one end they’re sharp and curved up toward the heavens. And on the other end they’re dull and crooked as they emanate from the woman’s head like a crown.
The question is whether they’re pointing up — indicating ideas, decisions and strategies — or pointing down — indicating worry, anxiety and stress.
The reds and golds can indicate passion, but they can also represent fear and shame. It’s probably the latter, given the mournful look on the woman’s face.
But there’s a saving grace here too. Notice the elaborate designs on the overlay around her face. It tells us there are solutions, but that they require a level of intricacy and creativity to unravel.
Also notice the mandala glowing around the region of her third eye. We can see that she does have access to a vast reservoir of inner knowledge if she’d only open her eyes.

King of Pentacles
The King of Pentacles is all about business and money yet also possesses the grounded and earthly qualities to get what he wants.
So what is it that you want? Today looks to be a day about sitting down and calibrating what will work best for you in relation to sorting out your finances or making some money.
The delicate hands that seem to be coming from nowhere within the image are all ready to turn into motion a plan that will see more wealth come your way.
Although wealth does not necessarily need to be about money or finances the King of Pentacles does imply that it is or that it gives you the necessary skills and attributes to make money, hold onto it and watch it grow.
Look at the hands again. There are patterns on the Mount of Pluto slightly rolling into the Mount of Luna which implies that not only is this a good day for finances but that there is a shift that will come through you intuitive side in what you possibly need to change in your life to make this happen.
Pentacles are usually about being grounded and taking practical steps but as the hands are so prominently featured then palmistry is also coming into play. These hands are not earthy… they are more in line with a water sign’s disposition as can be seen from the long fingers.
