The Son of Swords reminds us that, sometimes, good things take time and lots of effort. He reminds us to work hard for what we want. To be determined. To remain focused. To move towards a goal with urgency. To get to the heart of the matter.
This week we’re being asked to lock ourselves on a target and pour our energy into it. With a single-minded focus, we can address the things that perhaps we’ve been putting off. Delaying for another time, place, or the perfect circumstances. Rather than put things off, what can you do to get the wheels in motion?
A spider meticulously weaves her web. Dedicated and precise, she’s a master of her art.
Much as how she hones her craft with every intricate and subtle move, this week, we’re being asked to sharpen our skills. Go about our tasks with true confidence. Get focused. Pay attention to the details.
The suit of Pentacles speaks to our worldly possessions – issues involving our homes, money, or careers. Much like the spider has captured the pentacles in her web, we’re being asked to consider what we’d like to acquire or attain.
Balance. Healing. Renewal.
The great heron of the Temperance card is calm and and peaceful as she blends the opposing elements of water and fire. This week we’re being asked to be a stabilizer much like the heron. A new sense of self and healing will happen where we find balance in our lives.
The ten of cups reminds us of how we get what we give. Five cups run across the top of the card and five along the bottom. While they radiate energy outwards to each other, they’re simultaneously receiving. Because, really. Life is just as much about what we give as what we get.
