We begin this week with a forewarning to exercise caution and care as we move forward. The Deception & Envy card carries a few meanings that may pertain to you, but the root issue is the same: it’s time to take off the mask that has been clouding your vision around an issue and look it squarely in the face. Things are definitely not as they seem, whether it’s because someone else is deceiving you or because a situation has turned bad, and somewhere inside of you, you know this to be true. Oftentimes, we allow our desires and our sense of goodwill to cloud our perception of a person or situation. This card is pushing you to get real with respect to it. Trust your inner knowing, remove the blinders, and revise your action plan. In order to get your desired outcome, it is necessary to be open, honest, and bold with respect to yourself and others.
Trust that you are more than ready to move forward! The Spiritual Strength card comes through to show you that you have earned and garnered the tools and the fortitude necessary to move forward powerfully along your path. Know that as you let go of one thing, you make room for another. If you manage to do that with consciousness and love, then what you create space for will show up in beautiful and moving ways. You have been through a lot on this journey, and through it all you have created stability, strength, wisdom, and fortitude. Keep up the good work, and know that although you may not have been expecting this change in plans or to release something important from your life, you have all you need to not just get through this time, but to thrive.
And indeed, victory can be yours! Triumphant Success is the reassurance card that if you take the necessary steps to look at what is really going on and adjust accordingly, situations that have been feelings stuck or not healthy will begin to move forward quickly and successfully. This card bodes well for new beginnings and dramatic changes in how your life looks if you are willing to cut through the barriers that hold you back. Remember that it is a double-edged sword, though, so in all of your actions, regardless of what they are, be judicious, compassionate, and clear. Regardless of the whats or whys of a situation, it is good practice to live and act with the honor and spirit of a true knight.
