Spiritually – Â The Hanged ManÂ is influencing your spirituality this month and asks you to surrender to whatÂ you can’t control. It’s feeling stuck and experiencing delays. As advice, hang in there, change is the one guarantee in life. Â You need to let go of limiting self-beliefs, and anything else in your patterns of thinking that aren’t working for you anymore. It’s likely that you’re feeling at a crossroads and experiencing a little bit of “cabin fever”; be patient and generous, remember that we what put our focus on, is what we manifest. Â Further reduced, we get 3, which indicates that you’re ready for a change that will lead to advancement. Â The Empress is the hidden influence. You would be encouraged to spend more time nurturing yourself, and you should consider volunteer work with animals, and young children. Â Get outside as much as you can, and let Mother Nature inspire you during this magickal time of renewal!
Career – Â The 5 of WandsÂ represents a frustrating and competitive situation, with a lot of the energy being out of your hands. Employed or unemployed, play hard, let the competition bring out the best beast in you, but play fair. The Hierophant’s energy is also influencing your situation, which means that to further your career; you’re going to need to conform in small ways. Â As advice, be traditional in your approaches, go through the ‘proper’ chains of command, and consider jobs that include identifying with a group, school, organization, institution and/ or the government. Â Keep your eyes open for a very rigid powerful person in a position of leadership to help you further your career even faster.
Love – Â StrengthÂ is one of the cards that’s related to compassion, lust, and patience. Â You would be encouraged to control your inner beast and put mind over matter for the best results. Â If you’re in a relationship, this card would demonstrate that while every relationship is hard work, that yours is strong, and has what it takes to endure the test of time. Â If you’re single, get extremely clear on your intents! Â You should have new found confidence in your worth as a person, don’t stay at home, get off of the computer, and consider looking for a Leo- this card is an excellent omen for finding love!
Spiritually – Â The MoonÂ brings an unsettling energy, and nagging anxieties if you allow your imagination to get the worst of you. You need to payÂ attention to your dreams, and rely heavily on your intuition. The Moon will illuminate truths that need dealing with. When this card arrives, often deep seeded memories can resurface. Â This card would point to you having a small supportive group of women to lean on when times get tough. Â The worst aspect of this card, when it comes to your spirituality, is that the good and bad choices appear so similar. Remember that all the answers are within you! Â This is a good month for you to spend time exploring books on spirituality, to meditate and to consider having some healing work done. The hidden influence would be The Hermit. Expect some independent moments full of introspection. Important keywords for you numerology wise are; vision, invention, influence, intellectual power, attainment and anticipation!!! Â Donât forget that this 9 indicates that youâre much closer to crossing that finish line than you think!
Career – Â The StarÂ would represent that you will experience an ease in struggles this month, which brings you that much closer to realizing your goals. You should find that your creative juices are flowing, and itâs highly possible that youâll be inspired to nurture a buried talent, or head in a completely different direction. Think positively, dream big, revamp that resume and get ready for opportunities that will give you renewed hope for your future! The hidden influence would be Strength, and being an 8, it would indicate that there are abundant opportunities all around you! Other numerology keywords are observation, intentions, repetition and infinity. Â Put your focus and energy into what you want to achieve, negotiate as much as you can, and keep your mind over matter!
Love – Â Â The 2 of PentaclesÂ is a card that indicates that you need to be more open to change, and calculated risk taking! Whenever a 2 arrives, it’s indicating that the person needs to make a decision. The High Priestess is the hidden influence here, so single or not, listen to your intuition, and be ready for some new admirers! Â If youâre in a relationship, and it hasn’t been smooth sailing lately, ask yourself, âAm I really making the relationship a priority?â Â âWhat is my role in improving the relationship?â This card would demonstrate that there are 2 main issues that are standing between you and your partnerâs happiness. Â Chances are that both partners have a pressing need to create more balance between work and the relationship. This card predicts change, which could represent difficulties if the relationship isn’t at theÂ top of your to do list. Â If youâre single, make sure that youâre truly emotionally available before you break someoneâs heart. Â Also, if youâre single, and someone keeps trying to get your attention, but itâs erratic, be careful, this card can often demonstrate someone whoâs juggling more than one partner, or lifestyle.
Spiritually – Â The Queen of SwordsÂ being a court card, could be representing you, or someone in your life who can help you with your spirituality. They would be 34 years and up, have lighter hair and eyes, be very intuitive, seem emotionally cut off, is direct to the point of being abrasive (you donât want to mess with her/him), is a good business person, possibly an air sign and potentially works with a sharp instrument (pen, knife, etc.) Â Think logically, head over heart, and see your entire situation as it really is, so that you can plan your progress with the power that acknowledging the truth brings! Consider getting rid of any emotional baggage that could be potentially holding you back by detaching, reinforcing personal boundaries and by using natural methods to heal. Keeping a dream journal could assist you in seeing what’s under the surface. Â Knowing what you’re dealing with is half the battle.
Career – Â The Ace of PentaclesÂ represents that youâre starting a new cycle full of opportunities! Â The energy is raw, and more symbolic of prosperity. Â You should see that your efforts are rewarded and achieve tangible results. Â If you’re considering making a move, or even striking it out on your own, this card is a positive affirmation that you have the potential to make your dreams a reality! Furthermore, the hidden influence is The Magician, which indicates that you will make better use of your talents after you apply yourself with the power of your focus!
Love – Â The Page of CupsÂ being a court card, could be representing a person in your life, but more often than not, the pages all represent new cycles, messages, and characteristics that you’re currently developing. This page would be kind, sentimental, intuitive, idealistic, very well mannered, sympathetic, generous, artistic, forgiving, and a bit of a dreamer. You’re also in a very intuitive cycle, and need to pay attention to gut reactions. Often times this card arrives before you’re about to have a surprising encounter! Â Remember, there are no coincidences; they’re really synchronicities that have a reason. If you’re in a relationship, you would be encouraged to make romance more of a priority (a regular date night). Â If you’re single, keep your eyes open for someone who matches this Page’s description, and get ready for a heady romance that will have your head spinning!
Spiritually – Â Ace of SwordsÂ demonstrates that youâre at peak, especially intellectually! Â Thereâs a need for you to examine your perspectivesÂ regarding an obstacle and adversities that surround you. You want the truth and justice; itâs highly likely that youâll be championing some cause this month. Thereâs a new beginning thatâs bringing some anxiety issues with it, but have the fear and face it anyways- you will triumph! Â The energy of this card translates into you getting brutally honest with yourself and getting rid of any behaviors, and or belief systems that donât compliment you, so that you can truly progress! Â The hidden influence would be The Magician, ensuring that you’ll be able to make better use of your talents, and passion, in order to manifest what you need!
Career – Â The EmpressÂ is an outstanding omen for an abundant month! Â Itâs an excellent time for you to demonstrate your ability to be resourceful, creative and nurturing at work. This card would indicate that youâre looking for some change regarding your career, and even better, another keyword would be advancement! If you wantÂ a raise in salary, ask, the timing is good! Â If youâre looking for a new position, think about going into an area where youâll be able to harmonize with nature, or connect with children, the elderly and/or animals in a supportive role.
Love – Â The DevilÂ represents feeling restricted, helpless and trapped. The hidden influence is The Lovers, which puts more of an emphasis on the temptation aspects, and suggests that you’re at a moral crossroads. Â If youâre in a relationship itâs likely that you and/or your partner is feeling stuck or bored and thereâs an element of temptation. Â Great questions to ask yourself would be; âHas my relationship become like a bad habit? Â Is my partner manipulative, and or controlling? Â Does my partner trust me and do I trust them? Â Is our relationship healthy?â Â This doesnât mean that the relationship is doomed to end. Â Breath some passion back into your relationship, behave as you did during the early courtship, romanticize one another and try new activities!!!! Â If youâre single, and thereâs a hot prospect who is very charismatic, be so careful! I donât care how gorgeous and sexy they appear to be, they have invisible horns and just want to play with you!
Spiritually – Â The MagicianÂ arrived to represent that this is your month to realize your true potential! Â Expect to feel a strong connection with your divinity and to be reminded of your life’s purpose. Â Revisit your intentions, create a plan, and then get busy! Once you fully commit yourself and apply the force of your will with action, there’s just no stopping you! Keep your expectations high, believe that you can do it, and consider getting involved with like-minded individuals or studying a new practice that you haven’t had time for previously.
Career – Â The 7 of SwordsÂ could indicate that thereâs some level of deception around you, not to mention some dirty office politics. It would also represent that youâreÂ tempted to run away and shirk some responsibilities- don’t! Â If thereâs an issue that you’ve been avoiding dealing with, itâs time to fight fire with fire, but make sure that your actions are above reproach! Â This is a strategy card, which means that you need to be tricky with your application. Â Try new methods until you find what works for you. Â If you’re unemployed, network as much as you can! Â The hidden influence at play is The Chariot. Have clear cut goals, be determined, use your sheer will power, assert yourself while curbing your impulsiveness, and with hard control you will achieve VICTORY!
Love – Â DeathÂ represents endings, new starts and a period of transformations. This bitter sweet energy is positive, and translates into progress, but that’s not to say that it’s not emotionally challenging. Single or attached, the longer that you resist or choose to deny the changes, the harder that becoming accustomed to them will be. Â Accept what you can’t change, and consider ending any destructive patterns of behavior. Â If you’re in a relationship, attitudes are changing, and it’s time that the both of you had a brutally honest discussion about your feelings, and your future. If you’re single, re-examine your attitudes, your behavior, and start doing something new!!!! Â All of the 4′s represent blocks, and this one is going to be longer lasting than most, being a major arcana card. Reduced, we get the hidden influence of The Emperor. Â When it comes to making that difficult choice, put your head first, be logical, and assert yourself! Â Only you know what’s best for you! Numerology keywords would be motion, erratic behavior, adventures, passion, achievement and humility.
Spiritually – Â The 10 of WandsÂ Â represents that youâre at the end of whatâs been an overwhelming cycle. You’ve likely had to manage a tough situation, with most of the responsibility having landed on you. The stress, and the struggles, are finally coming to an end. The Wheel of Fortune is the hidden influence, which means that swift change is coming soon! Â When this card arrives, it often indicates that your stress has manifested in the body, physically causing back aches, a sore neck, and headaches. Consider your emotional baggage, and find ways to lessen your load. It’s critical that you look after your health!!!! Â Make yourself a priority, delegate when you can and don’t be too proud to ask for help.
Career – Â The 8 of SwordsÂ represents a less than ideal professional life, where you’re likely feeling as though you’re not in control and almost imprisoned.Â This card indicates that you need to make an important decision and yet, they all look unappetizing. If youâre terrified of the unknown to the point that you donât act, youâll stay in your rut longer, needlessly causing yourself to suffer. Strength is the hidden influence, think mind over matter, patience, and compassion (towards everyone, even the co-worker/ boss who seems to go out of their way to make your work place a living hell.) Â If you don’t like what you’re doing, find something else; whenever an 8 arrives, it’s an indicator that there’s abundant opportunities surrounding you.
Love – Â The 9 of PentaclesÂ would represent that you’re fully capable of being independent, and if you’re in a relationship that you’re questioning- get out quick!!!! When this card appears, the message is that Mr. or Mrs. Perfect For You is out there, and it’s an excellent omen for you single people! Â If you’re in a relationship and you feel that it’s solid, then it’s clearly time to take it to the next level! Â The hidden influence would be The Hermit, which is a strong indicator that you’re more than enough on your own, and that you don’t need anyone to fulfill you. Â I want to point out that whenever a 9 arrives in a reading, that the person is so much closer to attaining their goal than they may realize. Numerology keywords would be vision, invention, influence, intellectual power, attainment and anticipation!
Spiritually – Â The 2 of SwordsÂ would indicate that you’re avoiding dealing with an issue, which has left you at a stalemate, because you’re afraid to make the wrong choice. Important keywords, numerology wise would be: balance, contrast, negotiation, partnerships and choice. Â The energy of this card often represents a situation where the person is feeling stuck, being defensive and keeping others emotionally distant. When you’re feeling inner conflict, there are often more choices than meets the mind’s eye. Â As advice, consider talking to a trusted friend, or using a journal, where you can expose your true feelings and pay attention to your dreams! Â The High Priestess is the hidden influence, and she would whisper for you to “proceed with caution, because there’s hidden potential, or information that will reveal itself soon.”
Career – Â The 2 of WandsÂ demonstrates that youâre at a crossroads, and have a decision to make. You choose the focus, whatâs really important to you when it comes to your career? Â Itâs important that you pay careful attention to matters of balance. Â If youâre employed, or unemployed, The High Priestess is the hidden influence and sheâs whispering that you must also pay caution and be patient, because thereâs some potential that you donât know about yet! Â If youâre employed, the office atmosphere is going to become more enjoyable. If youâre looking for a job, itâs coming sooner than you think.
Love – Â The 5 of CupsÂ demonstrates that youâre going to experience some emotional disappointment with regards to your love life. Numerology wise, The Hierophant’s influence would also come into play. Â Sticking to tried and true methods is strongly encouraged (which unfortunately translates into you having to conform in some way.) Â If youâre in a relationship, itâs not living up to your expectations, but that doesn’t mean that itâs over. When this card arrives, itâs important to note thatÂ thereâs still some potential there!Â The energy is similar to crying over spilled milk and choosing to see the cup as half empty or half full. All of the 5â˛s in the deck represent short lived frustration, and thereâs bound to also be some unpredictable erratic behavior from both you and your partner. Â Youâre 50% of the way through this cycle. Everything happens for a reason, let go of the past and start living again! Â If youâre single, go out and do the things that you enjoy, stay off line, and donât accept blind dates!
Spiritually – Â The 9 of WandsÂ indicates some unfounded anxieties, and has a very defensive energy with it. When this card arrives, the person has recently been through some trying times that definitely tested their perseverance. Â It’s likely that you’re experiencing some faith and or trust issues. What doesn’t kill us, really does make us stronger, and believe it or not, you’re past has served to prepare you well for what’s ahead. You’re likely feeling fatigued, and a little less than optimistic. Â You would be advised to discipline yourself strictly, especially with your focus. Guided meditations will help you get the rest that you need. Be very honest about what concerns you, and don’t let your imagination get the worst of you! The hidden influence is The Hermit, indicating that while you’re most likely feeling painfully alone, this is an important time of where introspection and solitude will lead you to the answers that you seek.
Career – Â The 10 of SwordsÂ arrived to demonstrate that on an intellectual level, youâre likely feeling defeated, hopeless, possibly betrayed, and youâre intellectually stabbing yourself to death (regarding your career). Employed or unemployed, this month brings an end to an exhaustive cycle. Â The hidden influence here would be The Wheel of Fortune, and, as long as you donât quit trying, your luck is about to swiftly change in your favor!
Love – Â The Knight of PentaclesÂ being a court card could be representing you, or a person in your life. They would have darker features, be 18-34 years of age, they could be an earth sign, at first seem boring or shy, they would beÂ practical, methodical, trustworthy, pay attention to detail, be hard working, often in a trade, too fond of wearing neutral colours and extremely cautious (very slow when approaching anything and everything.) This is the most dependable of all the knights and it demonstrates slow, but steady growth. If you’re single, it’s clear that you need to try some new approaches, because what you’re doing isn’t working. Â If you’re in a relationship, it’s likely not fireworks and romance, but with the focus being more on the sense of duty. Â As advice, shake it up, you be the gasoline, and then throw in a spark!!!!!
Spiritually – Â The king of Pentacles, being a court card, he could beÂ representing an actual person in your life who’s in a position to help further develop your spirituality. They would be over 34 years of age, have darker features, could be an earth sign, would be practical, methodical, trustworthy, hardworking, often in a trade, and extremely cautious (very slow when approaching anything and everything). This King knows that a person cannot thrive with business, without paying careful attention to matters of balance. Take the actions that this King would. Nurture your spirituality, and your spirituality will nurture your life!

Â Whether you’re employed or not, this card translates into positive messages regarding work, you’re fired up and ready to go, and this card indicates that you’re actually pursuing a project or idea, and the “force is with you.”
Love – Â The ChariotÂ is an indication that you’re on the right path and possess the ambition, power and determination to be successful in love! Â The rule of the 7′s, is that they all bring personal challenges, and this one is major, being that it’s major arcana. The energy of this card is intense; karma based and demonstrates a situation or relationship, where one person is wanting to push too hard, too fast. Â The advice is to control your impulses, to reinforce your boundaries, and to not lose sight of the finish line! Relationships, at times, are all hard work. If you’re in a relationship, you and your partner are likely dealing with opposing views/ or opinions and need a heart to heart, so that you can find a middle ground. Â If you’re single, caution! Â This card, when representing a person, is often a player, with chiseled features, and wild sex appeal. Â Before getting involved, be sure that both parties are clear on one another’s intentions.
Spiritually – Â The Ace of CupsÂ indicates that you’re very connected with your divinity this month. Â Loved ones who have passed are attempting toÂ demonstrate their love for you (keep your eyes open for synchronicities)! This is one of the biggest love and/or birth indicators, and this is the start of a very happy cycle for you! Â Your spirituality and intuition are emphasized, bringing a calming influence and more balance your way. Â The Magician is the hidden influence, bringing you opportunities for new beginnings! Have great expectations and consider exploring a new spiritual practice. You have everything that you need to create that growth that you desire. Â Never underestimate the power of one!
Career – Â The 3 of SwordsÂ is commonly known as âthe divorce cardâ and indicates that youâll be feeling sharp stabs of disappointment to your ego, especially regarding your career. If youâre feeling some conflict and unnecessary struggle, consider approaching your chain of command and asking what you can personally do to make the situation more productive (and bearable for you.) Â If there seems to be just one person whoâs causing you grief, limit your interactions with them as much as possible. The hidden influence is The Empress, and she insists that any problems can be solved using compassion, creativity and resourcefulness. Â If youâre unemployed, change the way that youâre approaching theÂ job market, and consider going into fields that you havenât already tried.
Love – Â The FoolÂ arrived, representing a fun new cycle full of opportunities to boldly experience what you’ve never tried before. This card is all about expanding your horizons. Â Be spontaneous, trust in the flow, and follow your heart’s desire! Â If you’re single, it’s likely that you’re not going to meet “the one” this month, which isn’t to say that you shouldn’t get out there, and enjoy the carefree adventure of being single. Â If you’re in a relationship, the both of you need to let go and live in the moment, so that you can uninhibitedly recapture the simply joys that brought you together in the first place!
Spiritually – Â JusticeÂ is a karma based card, what goes around, comes around, and so if you can’t do the time, don’t do the crime!

It’s time for you to get brutally honest with yourself and to make any necessary changes, so that you influence a better future for yourself (diet, exercise, etc.) Â Thereâs a need to pay extra attention to issues regarding balance and grounding meditations would be helpful for you.

Career – Â The 10 of Pentacles arrived to represent the blessings of wealth and achievement for all of your efforts! YouÂ would be encouraged to networkÂ within your community to expand yourÂ outlook and professional possibilities. The subtle energy thatâs influencing you is, The Wheel of Fortune, which means that youâre at a pivotal turning point that could spin your entire life inÂ directionsÂ that you didn’t expect! Employed, or unemployed, this card is an excellent omen. Whatever you need, a higher paying job, or a different position, it’s right there waiting for you- so keep trying!!!!!!!!!!!!
Love – Â The 8 of WandsÂ represents that while currently there could be some issues that are out of your control, thereâs soon to be a lot of changes in a positive direction! Â Single or not, this is a card that represents raw sexuality, and a very fertile situation- so be careful! Â This is a highly charged, fast paced, and intense sexual energy, but not a very committed one. If you’re single, you can expect a lot of flirtatious attention from admirers and even a short lived heady romance that will sweep you off your feet! If you’re in a relationship, and it seems to be going nowhere, or you’re experiencing struggles, communicate that with compassion and have patience. Strength is the hidden influence, so there’s another emphasis on the lust factor, and the need to control the inner beast.
Spiritually – Â The king of WandsÂ being a court card could be representing you, or someone in your life who’s in a position to help you with your personal growth. Â They would be 34 years of age+, evolved with the arts, possess a creative energy, be teaching or consulting, have a lot of integrity, is very generous, has a commanding presence, could be an entrepreneur, is bold, charismatic, is a natural leader, often looks exotic/ almost theatrical, and is possibly a fire sign. This is a dare from the tarot, for you to start drawing outside of the lines, especially with your spirituality! Â The safe and easy route, to this King, is unacceptable and too boring. Believe in yourself, have the courage of your convictions, and consider doing adventurous meditations, such as hiking in the mountains or painting your own masterpiece.
Career – Â The Knight of Swords, being a court card could be representing you, or someone in your life who’s in a position to help you further your career. Â Keep an eye out for someone who’s younger than 34 years of age, is blunt to the point of being rude (at times), is ambitious, aggressive, intellectually based, self-motivated, works with communications, or a sharp instrument (law enforcement, dentist, writer, surgeon, etc.), has lighter features, and is possibly an air sign. Â This is an excellent omen that you’re at your peak, intellectually speaking, and that a desirable opportunity is about to head your way! Â If you’re looking for a job, the search won’t be much longer. Â If you’re employed, get ready to outshine everyone else with all that you’re going to be able to accomplish!
Love – Â The 3 of Cups is an awesome card for those of you who are single! Â Get out and mingle! Â Invest some time doing hobbies that you enjoy on a social level, because Mr. or Miss. Right Now is out there, just waiting for you! Â Itâs possible that an ex will call, remember that an ex is an ex for a reason, and I donât care how great the physical chemistry was, stay strong!!! Â If youâre in a relationship, your focus will most likely be more on friends and family at this time. This being another 3, would put an emphasis on opportunities and advancement being all around you, because we would take into account The Empress’s energy as being the hidden influence. It’s clearly time for you to experience unconditional love on some level and celebrate life!
