The energy building today is one of feeling optimistic as you will begin to see the results of your efforts come into view and not only will you be feeling good about your accomplishments - you will gain the support of those around you so that you can expand your goals and move into something bigger.
The crow confidently stands on the back of a horse as it trots across a landscape covered by large sunflowers. The Sun illuminates the sky offering a long day to enjoy and a radiating warmth for comfort.
In the past position, the Sun represents an optimistic attitude that runs through you naturally. Although success wasn't guaranteed you never let any obstacle stand in your way of at least trying - approaching every hurdle with confidence and if there was a failure because of the innate optimistic spirit within you bounced back quickly.
The Sun is your foundation - it is part of who you are and it travels with you - it may seem as though clouds block the Sun more often than not - but it is still there.
The Crow stands in the victory circle, a place it worked hard to achieve. Not only was this bird successful it also attracted the eyes of others who admired the bird's efforts and with their support the crow is able to expand its vision and move on to a bigger goal.
At the heart of today's reading is the Six of Wands and this indicates that you will find a successful outcome to your current situation - so much so that it will attract the attention of others who will not only admire what you are doing - they will also help you take your goals to the next level.
With the Sun spreading its energy across the cards this morning - the energy is perfect for putting in the work and effort to accomplish a goal because when you do - the result will be not only a victory for the moment but also an opportunity to go further. Together these cards (and later on with the Ace of Swords) carry some seriously potent energy!
If you are meeting any resistance or feeling any friction with respect to your current situation - you may want to take this as an opportunity to see if your ego is working overtime. Although confidence will get you into the victory circle - arrogance will not.
Are you letting someone's criticism get under your skin to the point that it throws off your game - or diminishes your optimism? Are you taking the "it's my way or the highway" approach to a project that relies on collaboration?
The Sun is here to not only provide you with the confidence and the optimistic attitude your situation needs for success it will also shine a light on your ego so that you can spot this little fear-mongering demon before it causes too much damage.
Cutting through the side of a mountain the brave crow rides the fast-moving and powerful sword up into the air where it can now see the path to victory.
With the Ace of Swords supporting the Sun and the Six of Wands, this indicates that you will get a bolt of clarity - one that will help you determine the best course of action. If you have been feeling unsettled or unable to take the next step because of feelings of insecurity around your current situation - the Ace of Swords will create an opportunity for you to get clear on where you want to go and how best to get there.
If things have been moving along nicely - the Ace of Swords provides the energy and vision needed to effortlessly move into the phase as your goals grow.
