There is something or someone who will ignite a desire or passion within you and although you know in your mind that things take planning and time - in your heart you are chomping at the bit.
The crow worked tirelessly to create the perfect nest - for each pentacle to fall perfectly into place the bird planned and strategized each step and although it took a great deal of time and both mental and physical work - with the job complete to perfection the bird is ready to stay warm and comfortable throughout the winter months.
With the Seven of Pentacles serving as the foundation for your current situation, you had the vision to invest in your future and acted on it. Whether that be taking the classes needed so that today you are able to go after your dream job - or you invested in yourself in another way by working out any fears or misguided beliefs that held you back in the past. Quite literally it may point to your saving for a retirement that is comfortable and unrestrictive.
You are where you are today because of the work you invested in the past. If you are not where would like to be today - the Seven of Pentacles brings the advice that if you invest now, you will create something that solid that will provide comfort and stability.
The charismatic crow makes yet another appearance this week - this bird swaggers onto the scene bringing creative ideas and plans that would have any bird ready to drop day to day chores for a little adventure.
The Knight of Cups is at the heart of today's reading (again) signifying a time to go after something that you are feeling drawn to or creates a feeling of love within. If you are feeling attracted to a new idea or to a new relationship - the energy surfacing at this time will open doors or usher in opportunities for you to engage directly. Perhaps there has been something or someone you have been flirting with - with the Knight of Cups here in the present if you allow yourself to indulge in your feelings you will create a spark - whether or not it becomes a full-on fire is still to be seen but you will never know unless you make the first step.
The Knight of Cups asks that you let your guard down a bit, this "knight in shining armor" is here to escort you through any feelings of fear or self-doubt.
The young crow spent the warm summer day playing in the sand, pecking at crabs and enjoying its day in the sun. Spotting a cup that washed up on the beach the crow hopped up and peered down at a fish. Just as it was about to have an afternoon snack - the fish spoke and it seemed to know what the crow was thinking, and feeling. Intrigued the crow listened - hanging on the fish's every last word.
With the Page of Cups falling in line after the Knight of Cups, this may indicate that with your eagerness towards the situation you may be feeling a bit impatient with your current progress. Perhaps you wish to know what the future holds and as a result you are trying to force things along faster than its natural course.
The advice the Page of Cups brings is to let the story unfold - by remaining patient and exercising restraint - the experience will fall into place as it is meant to be.
