Now: King of Swords
His Majesty stands firm and determined, arms crossed, and a rather silly, winged hat on his head. I love the black, star-filled cloak he wears over his blue sky tunic with clouds around th bottom! He is a decisive leader, someone who weighs things up in the balance and then acts with alacrity. He is cool-headed, with a clear overview of any situation. However, he’s not known for his touchy-feely approach 😀
Don’t: Four of Cups
This guy looks rather miffed with life, yet he isn’t seeing the cup being offered to him. He leans against a tree, with three cups lined up in front of him. The cup to his side and behind him emits rays of light – he’d spot it if he wasn’t so busy being in a funk! As ever, a suggestion that if you are feeling bored and apathetic, it is because you are not open to seeing the gifts life is offering you.
Do: King of Cups
This King is sat comfortably on a throne atop a rock in the middle of the ocean. Not the most secure place to be, you might think. Yet, he seems quite at ease, enjoying watching the waves splash and the dolphins leap. He looks calmly out, almost as though enjoying a cocktail while watching the sunset. I love his clothes, too, with a deep blue around his chest and up to his throat (and throat chakra), and with a sea green below the waist and on the sleeves beneath his top. Finally, a wave-like pattern at his hem, with a touch of wise, royal purple peeking out, as though lining the inside of his robe. He stays calm in the face of wild emotions, keeping his own in control, sometimes by rigidifying them (the golden fish necklace he wears).
Bringing this all together, I see the suggestion that this week will require some strategic thinking and planning. That fits, as I need to figure out when to run my next tarot magic webinars. Someone asked me last week if I’d be running the tarot magic for weightloss webinar again, too, which I’d definitely like to do. However, I also want to take the time to just enjoy the summer – this weekend has been really enjoyable, playing in the local playground, sitting out in the garden, and going swimming, too. So, I shall stay in touch with what I have to be grateful for in the moment, as well as thinking ahead. And as for the King of Cups, he tells me to keep my equanimity, both while figuring out logistics, and while dealing with the children.
