Here are your cards for the week of August 25th – 31st.
The 10 of Cups is a card of emotional satisfaction and fulfilment. It is as good as it gets when it comes to romantic love and feelings of emotional security and wellbeing.
This mature couple stop in a field and look into the distance. Is the sun coming up or going down? It doesn’t really matter. They are together, walking their dogs and witnessing this moment. Love and romance is not only for the young.
The start of this week promises warmth and fulfilment. Over here in the UK we have a bank holiday, so it might suggest a little extra time spent with family or the ones we love. If you are dating, the card could suggest the realisation of stronger feelings in an existing relationship or a new emotional commitment. Whatever this card represents for you, know that emotional stability and a connection with others will play a part in the beginning of your week.
It is the job of the DJ in this card to find the perfect mix. This is why the card is separated into two halves. He takes a little bit of this and mixes it with a little bit of that, in order to make something new.
Temperance could stand for a handful of things this week. It could represent compromise and the acceptance of other people’s views. Similarly, it might be suggesting that the solution to a problem is to work as a team and build on the ideas of a group. This would mean sacrificing the ego and allowing others to add their own melodies to the overall tune.
Temperance practices moderation. This is somewhere between indulgence and abstinence. If you have been eating or drinking too much, partying too hard or working late a lot recently, this card advises that you moderate your lifestyle. Balance is key.
The 7 of Cups brings about choices; lots of them. This could be a time to brainstorm and map out all of the options available to you. Which avenue appears most favourable? Are there any choices which you can dispose of?
Fantasising and considering possibilities can be fun but be aware that you can not stay in this phase for too long. Eventually, you will need to choose.
Have you been musing over a decision for what has seemed an age? Are other people becoming frustrated by your lack of commitment to a specific course of action or finding you too dreamy? Maybe you are spreading yourself too thinly, with regards to projects or relationships. As this week finishes, decide on one specific route and stick to it. Fantasy is an important part of life – we all need them – but there must become a time where we choose one dream over the others and focus on manifesting it.
