There is an empowering energy circling us today as we will have the confidence and strength to confront the aspects of our life that don't line up or feel accurate in regards to who we know we are meant to be or become.
Shining a light of luck on the crow is the Sun. The horse offers the crow a rest from flying so that it can recharge and rebuild its strength.
Although the Sun is in the past position, it comes through and shines its light across today's reading - illuminating the areas that you are naturally lucky. When it rises, there is a sense of inherent optimism and inspiration easily flows. It is a time to feel confident and capable of obtaining your goals.
The crow and sword combine to create a powerful force of nature - one that can cut through any barrier as it is destined for victory.
At the heart of today's reading is the forceful and sharp-minded Ace of Swords. In this position, the Ace of Swords brings to the surface an energy of finding alignment. If you have been feeling out of sorts, or if you have a deep knowing that your life should be moving in a direction other than where you are going today - the Ace of Swords will support you in seeking answers. With the Ace of Swords being the dominant energy in the present position, you will feel a strong sense of empowerment that enables you to articulate your position, needs, and desires so that you can transition into a place that feels more in tune with where you are supposed to be during this lifetime.
The creative and fantastic Knight of Cups enters spinning fabulous tales and evoking feelings of passion. This bird has a gift for making all those around him feel special and unique and because of this, there is an element of fantasy that hangs in the air whenever he is present.
The force of the powerful Ace of Swords contained the energy to create a breakthrough and with it, your new sense of confidence and self-assurance will attract the Knight of Cups.
With the arrival of the Knight of Cups, a new passion emerges and you will feel drawn to pursue this new adventure with full-throttled enthusiasm and drive. This new project or relationship will want to all but consume you if you allow it - and like morning glory it will strangle any and all other plants in the garden. The warning the Knight of Cups brings today is one of not losing yourself in a relationship or novel idea.
Allow this new part of your life it to be woven in so that you feel the joy that comes from it - however, it should not take over like an invasive weed. Whether it be a hobby or a new relationship the key is to take it slow, enjoy the moments together but keep them metered so that you don't fall down the rabbit hole of fantasy. It may feel right at the moment - but give it time and take it slow - if it is meant to be it will last.
