Son of Swords has tremendous focus and determination for what he desires to see manifest in his life. Some will view him as obsessed or overly ambitious. Son of Swords sees his movements as a fulfilling way to see something through to completion. He is flying on his sword fiercely, with intense power in one direction and one direction only. He is not on the fence about his quest, but completely throwing himself in without fear. He sees only plan A, no plan B. There are those in his life who will disagree with this seemingly narrow way of moving, but this compulsion to move so confidently in one direction he cannot deny. This is the temperament of his being and he’s riding the wave. Those who wish to agree or disagree may do so freely, he will continue on his journey with high momentum and not lose sleep over opinions.
There are risks and challenges which will show up and confront him along his journey. The Son of Swords seems to disregard all of these future possibilities of failure. His attitude is “I will cross that bridge when it comes.” He does not see dangerous territory he only sees the way he needs to move in his freedom, he is not fearful of may or may not come. There is a pure creative force driving the Son of Swords. He surrenders to the force which is moving him in galaxy strides throughout the cosmos. Where once there was so much resistance within him, now he has surrendered to this grace which has always been guiding him.
Wherever the focus of attention the Son of Swords has put his being towards, there will be great success. There will also be intense learning experiences that are highly challenging because of the nature of his bold movements. In one way it speeds up his learning because of constant challenges that arise which stretch his being. His nature to never play it safe or remain comfortable is always expanding his being. Although his attitude is strong and swift towards his goal, he must be cautious of not rushing. He can still move fiercely with determined and excited power, but he must be aware of the quality of his flight. It is wise for him to be in alignment with each step toward his goal. Not to be so fixed on the end goal but to see each moment as the end goal while he moves toward the bigger picture. The Son of Swords will be misunderstood by those close to him, but the force which moves him is one he trusts greater than the opinions of others. The invitation is to allow the momentum to naturally propel one into the direction you are presently moving. Stay mindful of trying to get anywhere other than where you are, allow your vision to be present and not one which may bind your spirit in time. All tools, resources, and experience are here with you now. When we move with love this will be reflected in the goal. If “the end” is more important than now this will be detrimental to this incredible sharp and present focus of the Son Swords. Fully be in each moment and allow your creativity to seep out of your pores like magic. As you move in this way you will not be fueling your goal with a nervous energy but one that is full, whole, and complete. Your momentum is strong now. Allow it to flow, but do not race or force it. Fully embrace the natural flow that is already moving you.

Seven of Pentacles represents heartfelt action, work related or creative one has been investing sweet energy and time and energy into. This can go from early stages of thought process into the action of the process. Either way, there has been an amazing flow of loving energy with this endeavor. It is time to pause and reflect on what has been accomplished thus far. Sometimes we forget how much has even bloomed because we are so into the project we cannot see how much we have actually accomplished. It is good to remember that even a giant yes in a direction that feels in complete alignment is a really big step. It is not to be discarded because one has not yet seen fruits of this new direction. Look closer, you will see fruits if you zoom in a bit more. There is already momentum underway if you have said yes to something that feels absolutely in alignment. Whether one is in the new idea of the work, a few months underway, or a year engaged in the process, take time right now to really see how far you have come. Sometimes what can happen now, is a hint of doubt because one has not seen full fruits of this dance. Remember, zoom in again and take a deeper look. The invitation with the Seven of Pentacles is, if what you are working on is in alignment with you…then keep going. When you work with present moment love this is what you will always be met with. Life is mirroring this to you in every moment with what vibration emanates from inside.
Seven of Pentacles invites the investigation of other aspects of ones life. Is any area zapping energy that could be invested in your work/project? Take a moment to think about this. What areas are you playing in that don’t necessarily feed you sweet energy? When we see where we are leaking energetically, we can simply choose to stop investing that which is no longer serving us. There are things we do each day that are either empowering us or draining our energy. Allow yourself to be honest and transparent. Give yourself the opportunity to turn this into more energy for what you love and what serves your heart. This can be anything from friends that drain you, food/habits, work that no longer serves, thought patterns, or whatever it is that is zapping you on some subtle or gross level. As we realize what drains us and allow that to fall away we are automatically telling life that we are ready for more beauty and love. Life responds and mirrors us in profound and immediate ways when we allow to fall away what doesn’t serve our highest good. What serves the highest good is very different for each individual human. This is why judging ourselves or others on what is the highest for each one is completely unknown…until its known. We do not know what others need on their journey and sometimes we don’t always know what we need, we are all navigating according to present moment perspective. We have the freedom to allow others to explore and for us to explore as well. The more open we are to this exploration and open to moving in the direction of our heart, the easier we will find to listen to the subtle ways our being wishes to move. We extend freedom to ourselves and others when we allow all to fully all to be as they are.
Seven of Pentacles is a reminder to naturally move in the present moment with full love in whatever direction is naturally calling. Know that when you move in this way you cannot go wrong because anything that comes through you is in accordance with the harmony of the universe. Modern day society is built around linear time, how fast one can accomplish, and how to please the status quo. None of these things are natural to our being and quite frankly the universe doesn’t really give a shit about that. We all work at different speeds and we are all learning lessons we need to along the way that are blasting open old limitations so we can discover our naturalness, our infinite nature. When one is dancing in full love, we move with the rhythm of the entire cosmos propelling us through the galaxy with no time, speed, or agenda. There is something pure about this movement and when one is honest and transparent about how they would actually like to be moving in life then one is supported in ways beyond anything they can possibly imagine. One can only experience this when they take risks and step out of comfort to play in the realm that their heart desires. Play it safe in linear time where the masses seem to be withering away in spirit, OR, continue to take risks doing what the heart calls for that is enriching in each moment?
The Fool, often misunderstood. Thankfully, The Fool doesn’t give a damn about opinion. He has one foot on a familiar branch and the other taking a step into the Great Unknown. The Fool is not concerned with what is to come or what has been. He lives in the moment and trusts completely. The Fool card is numbered as zero, ever present within the tarot. He has no specific order within the tarot and shows himself as unlimited potential in any direction. He is led by spirit that brought him here. The Fool has come into being to explore and learn without knowing what may come his way, but with full allowance of all that guides him.
The invitation here is that of trust. Trust what brought us here through all experiences that arise. The Fool is The Wild Unknown. He is innocent and open in each experience. He reminds us to give up our ideas, beliefs, and concepts of what should be, to allow life to be as it is without attaching false stories to what is. The Fool may be innocent in his appearance, but this does not mean he is not wise. He invites us to relax in our present moment freshness that is not tainted by past hurt. The Fool sees each experience as an new opportunity to live and love the sacredness of life in all forms that come. He invites us in unknown realms because he knows all is grace, even when the grace is fierce and painful. His attitude is Yes, allow me to see where I hold any limitation or fear within myself so I may walk in this life free and unhindered by self imposed limitations. He reminds us to not think we know everything and to revel and embrace uncharted territory within and without. If we think we know anything absolutely he reminds us that we block off discovering present moment beauty in the most simple way.
The Fool asks how do we hinder our own childlike innocence and exploration? Are we doubting ourselves and life as we move, or are we thankful for the miracle present now? As we relax into trusting life we open new doors of infinite possibility. We are not getting caught up in the mundane, but to the magic of life that is constantly inviting us to see in every moment. The Fool is one with the entirety of what is, therefore he does not doubt his experience of being. He invites us to take leaps of faith where there may be fear and to know as all is One we cannot go wrong when we trust in our heart and journey. Each unique embodiment of spirit has the opportunity to express itself fully in this life. The Fool asks if we can walk into our own heart and trust throughout all opposition that may come.
Absorbed in darkness, a rat rests atop four cups. Above him, a white light representing Pure Awareness & a crescent moon symbolizing intuition. Cups represent our emotional spectrum of being. Feelings, creativity, imagination, connections, love, and relationships with self and all of life. The rat is sitting on top of four cups being offered, but he is in the darkness. Four of Cups is asking if one is seeing what is here right now, or is one imagining themselves into the darkness? What are you not seeing that you already have? Are you being offered everything you need/want but cannot clearly see? This is a time that emotions are arising fiercely and a time to fully be present with them as they arise. When we take time to allow ourselves to feel what is, we will be able to truly see our present moment experience and all the beauty which is already present. In order for us to see our present moment reality we cannot ignore emotions that arise, we invite them in lovingly for they are wanting to be acknowledged. The invitation is to allow them to be felt fully and the being will naturally come into balance.
Sometimes we can miss the greatest gift that is with us all the time. We can wish or pine for things that are actually already here with us. When our mind and heart are divided we constantly see lack and that we do not have enough. When we are full of our own sweet nectar we see we aren’t missing anything and we are always divinely guided. We truly are seeing “outside” what we are “inside.” We don’t always want to say this is true because then we must take full responsibility for ourselves in a deep way. We can no longer blame outside sources for our suffering. In a way this is a great relief! Imagine if you had to fix everything outside of you?! What a freakin’ mess! Thankfully we have the opportunity to go inside ourselves and see where we hold resistance, be present with it and allow it to melt on its own accord. In one way we are responsible for the vibration we hold, but at the same time we see that all has been Grace sweeping through our house to show us the truth of our being, beyond limitations.
Four of Cups will come when there is dissatisfaction inside the being. One may feel as though there is something missing, or are not divinely guided. This feeling comes from an internal separation and cannot be satisfied by anything changed or shifted in the world. the change must come from our inner understanding. This can be a time where one has the urge to make drastic changes on the outside in order to feel differently. Four of Cups invites us to stay still. Before making any outside shifts in the outer world, take time to contemplate/reflect/meditate. Rest in your being and then see what changes occur naturally as you stay as awareness. The shifts that come from this space are always in alignment with your being. If one tries to change outside situation first, the internal peace will be temporary. Sooner or later the truth of dissatisfaction will present itself once again. We cannot avoid pain and conflict, we must face our darkness in order for any shifts to occur. We were built to have the capacity to hold space for this darkness. Four of Cups is an invitation to melt into your being and allow all actions to spring on their own natural accord.
The cups are here, abundance dripping all around. Somehow not being seen fully. There hasn’t been a full yes or full no to accept what life is presenting to you. There is a beauty being given to you because it matches your true vibration. Something within you is retreating out of fear. The invitation is that you are exactly where you need to be and you are being offered something rare and exquisite. You are on the right path, but you are blind because you are believing in doubts and fears instead of the truth of being. The cups are inviting you to drink from them and to trust life. Be fearless and say yes to what is here now. As we open fully to now, magic unleashes itself upon us. It has been here the whole time. As one resists, power is given to fears more than what is true. As you see through the nonsense you will see you are exactly where you need to be and your blackened cups will turn to liquid gold. When we see what is already present we stop taking life for granted and see the beauty in all that is.
