KNIGHT OF SWORDS, QUEEN OF PENTACLES Rx & FIVE OF PENTACLES
We are pouring our energy and emotions into defending the home base. What threats are encroaching onto your safety and security? Resisting these forces will call on you to articulate your standpoint through writing and talking. While it may seem adequate to approach this from a place of logic and common sense, you’ll get more done by appealing to emotions.
Opportunity – KNIGHT OF SWORDS
Be a champion of the principles that you value, as the Knight of Swords represents someone who fights for ideals. What is important to you, and how far are you willing to go to advocate? In the background, powerful winds blow the trees backwards as the Knight of Swords spurs his horse onwards. Sometimes all we need to get going is a little resistance. If motivation is lacking, take a moment to think about the naysayers who oppose you. How satisfying would it be to prove them wrong?
Warning – QUEEN OF PENTACLES Rx
Self-care is important, even when things are moving fast all around you. As someone whose job it is to care for others, the Queen of Pentacles can lose sight of her own needs. You’re running at a speed that is unsustainable over the long term, and pretty soon you’ll be running on empty. How can you nourish yourself, especially your physical body, to make sure that it stays in top fighting condition? You’re a force to be reckoned with, but you have to take care of yourself to stay that way.
Advice – FIVE OF PENTACLES
But how likely are you to do this if you believe that you deserve little? The Five of Pentacles highlights a fundamental problem of self-worth. You might feel that you have little to offer, but when you take an more objective look at yourself (get input from friends & family), what do you see? If you deserve more compensation for the effort you are putting out, then ask for it. People will value you as much as you value yourself.
