Time to get the rational brain into high gear today!
Ace of Swords -This is the Universe saying YES today. Clear communication is key - use your mind to solve any problems that arise - try to use impartial clarity and rationality today.
Quezalcoatl - an Aztec sky and creator god often referred to as The Feathered Serpent . He was also the patron god of the Aztec priesthood, of learning and knowledge. Quezalcóatl became the god of the morning and evening star, and his temple was the centre of ceremonial life in Tula. Also a Wind God of learning, writing and books.
King of Wands - Fiery wands and the focus of the Kings...A great leader with strength and nobility. Confident and controlled with their emotions and has mastered his passions. Willing to take chances and leads the way if no one else steps in. How can I guide myself to channel my passions and have the most productive emotions?
Anubis: God of embalming and watching over the dead. He ushered souls into the afterlife and attended the weighing of the heart - to see what happened to the soul. Protector of graves and cemeteries. Make sure your heart is light. Control yourself and be a strong and focused person - so your soul is lighter than the feather.
Ace of Pentacles - A great start for new opportunities and manifesting the things you want. There is potential for financial gain here as well as stability and security. What do you need to manifest to bring more security into your life?
Mandragora - aka mandrake, a member of the nightshade plant family, mandrake contains hallucinogenic and narcotic alkaloids. If you are not a muggle, then you probably also want to have earmuffs on before you re-pot one, they scream like the dickens and tend to be very lethal. If ingested the alkaloids in the root could induce excitation and hallucinations, as well as sleepiness—and sometimes, comas or death. Add 10 points to Gryffindor if you read that in Hermione's voice!
The World: The final card in the Major Arcana - wholeness, a fabulous conclusion, endings and beginnings. Dream big and aim to make it happen. You have done some hard work but you made it! Enjoy the prize.
Ouroboros - I actually have a tattoo of one on my shoulder blade. Endings and beginnings - my end is also my beginning. Nothing ever ends, it just restarts. There is a great hope in that - knowing you continue on, but in different ways. The ouroboros on the card is shaped like a lemniscate, which is on several of the Major cards. Infinity.
Usually one of the stabby sword cards isn't one to insight insane laughter....
Seven of Swords - This card kind of tells us that there may be many sides to one story. What something looks like may not be what it really is. A trickster-ish energy that uses quick thinking and strategizing. Using your wit you can get what you want if you ask for it. So what do you want and who do you ask to gain it? Create a strategy and turn on the charm
Cannibal - Yeah, ok, I had trouble NOT LAUGHING at the sheep on this card. But our Cannibal does illustrate the whole 7 of swords ideal there. He wants brains. He stomps around the pasture with his insane brain eating sheep and he gets what he wants. I am not sure if he is using charm so much as just taking and eating on the run, but he is getting what he wants.
Use your charm and your quick thinking today and if you find yourself wandering in a pasture full of crazy sheep... RUN - you don't need that kind of negativity and or brain eating, in your life.
Do you want this toothy thing on your back? Might be time to let go of things that no longer serve us well.
The Devil - So much imbalance can cause addiction, obsession and our own imprisonment. But in this case, WE can do something about it. Decide what you really need to let go of because you have the power to liberate yourself and walk freely.
Demon - A supernatural and often malevolent being that can cause some serious oppression and may often need to be removed - forcibly - by exorcism, depending on what demon you have on your back. But they can be removed when you realize you no longer want to carry that weight.
Today, you may be tired and weary and wondering if something is going to happen... again. But don't look at everything with a sketchy side-eye. Remember that you have all you need to take care of whatever comes up in your life.
Nine of Wands - There is a wariness here. Things have happened in the past and you are kinda wondering if they might happen again. But you got this! You made it already and stuff happens and it will happen again. You have what you need already to deal with whatever comes up.
Pumpkinhead - I am rusty with my 80s horror movies but I did see this one! Bad things happen to this guys son and when he wants revenge he has to resurrect a corpse, which rises as a gigantic, demony monster named Pumpkinhead. Many bad things happen and then I think they set it on fire along with the guy who started all this and the witch from the beginning of the movie buries him again as the new Pumpkinhead. Yeah, 80s horror movies rocked LOL
The High Priestess - Here we are reminded to access our unconscious. The High Priestess is a keeper of esoteric knowledge and wisdom. There is wisdom and knowledge everywhere we look if we choose to see it. When we look within we can see and access those truths and reach a higher level of enlightenment. Go deeper, beyond the obvious and see the unlimited possibilities within.
So today, we need to look within ourselves at the unlimited possibilities we hold inside. We are the stuff of stars and can access so much knowledge and information if we choose to find the quiet within and see what wisdom waits for us.
The Emperor - Power, control and authority. Someone to take charge and take care of business. Also excellent self-control. Remember you control your destiny - you hold the power. Also, don't be stubborn - that Aries self loves to be stubborn. Things will change - don't cling to things that want to move into other things.
Sphinx - a mythical creature with a human head and the body of a lion. Strong and resilient it has lasted centuries in the desert. It also asked crazy riddles... "Which creature has one voice and yet becomes four-footed and two-footed and three-footed?" She strangled and devoured anyone who could not answer. Luckily, Harry Potter got the answer to his riddle correct.
So much forward momentum today!
The Chariot! - Here we have movement and momentum. Control and self-control over any situation. Today you choose where to go - so pick a path and get ready for success!
Centaur - they are half-human, half-horse with the body of a horse and the torso, head and arms of a man. Most centaurs were depicted as lustful and wild, Chiron was a notable exception - said to be modest and civilised, he was known for his medicinal skills and teaching abilities. So saddle up your inner Chiron and gallop down the trail to learning and knowledge!
