Here are your cards for the week of August 11th – 17th.
This card suggests that your need for time alone and contemplation is not yet over. Sometimes, we must step out of the world for a while. Since The Hermit has followed us into this week, time alone is still essential for your general development.
Not everybody can get away from the world so easily. Many of us have jobs and commitments and can’t always afford to take a break at the drop of a hat. However, this card speaks of many ways in which we can unplug from society and everyday stresses. Could it be that you need to step back from social-media for a bit or would a problem with a relationship be helped by a little space? Whatever is on your mind at the beginning of this week, find a quiet place to consider your options, away from the noise of other people’s opinions and chatter. Take a short walk, unplug the telephone, or take some time away from the hustle and bustle of online communities like Facebook. Time alone is a medicine you will benefit from on Monday and Tuesday.
Many see this card as a gift or handout. On some occasions it is, but it is also the opportunity for you to make your own money or find your own path.
Wednesday and Thursday present an opportunity in the shape of either assistance, investment, or simply a helping hand. How can you nurture what you are given and encourage it to grow? After clearing your mind at the beginning of the week, you may be in a better place to make decisions and begin afresh.
This card could represent a sensitive young man, who will play an important part of this week. Alternatively, he might symbolise a romantic offer or an invitation to do something you love. Trips over water or regarding loved ones and relationships must not be ruled out.
Is this man a partner or new admirer? If so, then he sees you as a part of his future. If not concerning romantic love, then this man shares a mutual passion. He is dreamy and arty, so could represent a new professional partner within a project or someone who will help you on an emotional, creative, or spiritual journey. After time-out at the beginning of the week, now is the time to get moving again, with his help.
