I feel like this reading works well with yesterday's in that there is a strong supportive energy around working towards developing a new found passion. By using a positive past experience as a point of reference we are more open to the possibility of finding success with something new. Our awareness during this time is heightened and subtle clues are detected, because of this, friction is all but eliminated - enabling us to proceed with ease.
The crows gather in the garden for a celebration. The air is light and the usual cawing has been replaced by a symphony of loving clucking as the crows express their fondness for one another. The flowers at the end of each wand symbolize the growth and beauty that emerged from an idea that was nurtured and because of the crow's efforts they created a place of harmony.
The Four of Wands in the past position indicates that it was a past life-changing event, one that was worth celebrating is at the root of today's reading. Whether it was working towards graduating top of your class or overcoming a challenge that enabled you to propel forward in your career - this was a time where you knew without any doubt that the effort was worth the reward. Although this event happened in the past - you are still in some way benefiting from it today. Whether it be financially or emotionally - this time laid down the foundation for future successes to build upon.
The creative, charming and intuitive crow hovers above the horse as it slowly walks along the beach. The crow and the horse have a strong emotional bond traveling together in rhythm neither pushing or pulling - they move as one unit. The energy they bring is one that supports imagination and feeling deeply connected to someone or something. This duo may be high on romance, as they love the feeling of being in love and together they make quite the charismatic team - however, it is in their nature to keep moving and because of this it is best to enjoy the moments you have with the Knight of Cups for the time it is present.
At the heart of today's reading is the very supportive and creative energy of the Knight of Cups. If you haven't already started, soon you will feel a strong connection to something or someone that will give your heart a bit of boost as you will feel it drawing you in. This is a time to let go of any expectations or long-term desires and instead use this energy to build upon - be creative and extract what you can from this situation so that you can take the knowledge and use it in the future.
If you have been feeling a bit scattered these days the Knight will come in and steer you into a direction that will have you feeling more connected to a single idea, situation, or person and because of this experience, you will be able to focus your attention on what your heart desires. In a relationship, the Knight may present itself as a charming partner who is perfect in so many ways - yet reveals to you what it is you truly want in a long-term relationship by lacking that quality and because of this, although it was fun while it lasted you are now able to pinpoint what it is that you really want in a partner.
In a career, the Knight of Cups may bring in an opportunity to test the water in a new field you have recently become passionate about, although short lived it will give you the experience you need to move on to something more substantial or permanent.
This is a wonderful time to explore what makes your heart sing as you will feel naturally drawn to a field of study or a person that will prove pivotal in your life.
The two crows find their strength together from a shared heart that unites them in this lifetime and the next as the two are karmically connected. Together they are balanced as ideas flow easily between them and together they work to create a future based on mutual respect and compassion. This pair has a bond one that is created by two energies coming together and because of this, they create a powerful force, one that can test the limits of time.
Supporting the energy brought in by the Knight of Cups the Two of Cups adds an element of permanence to the situation as there is a karmic component intertwined between them. If you are looking for a green-light to begin working on something that you feel creatively connected to - this is it as the Two of Cups brings a little extra positivity to your situation and giving you both the strength and insight to move forward. You will feel the bond between you deepen as you become more connected to that which you pursue and with that more strongly committed to ensuring that you find success.
