Victory is in the palm of your hand - your creativity has laid the foundation and in the future, a celebration is waiting - however, if there is any roadblock or struggle in the present moment it may be worth examining where you are letting your pride get in the way.
The crow perched on the rim of the cup leans over to listen to the fish. This young creative bird delights in the clever tales the fish spins - hanging on to every word. Although in the beginning, the stories seemed to be simple musings, with time the crow discovered that each story the fish told held a solution to a problem - one that required a different and creative approach to solving.
I am a firm believer in that our emotions have the power to create a powerful magic - and when we tap into our emotions, call them by name whether it be love or anger - we only need to listen to our gut to hear the answers we seek - as they are buried in our intuition.
The youthful Page of Cups with its strong connection to its inner emotions created the foundation for your current situation. At some point in the past, you let your emotions dictate the path -leading you to deploy a less than conventional approach. Whether you were driven by pure love to move forward - or absolute frustration with your situation that anger or disappointment sparked a change - the Page of Cups denotes a time when your emotions took center stage and as a result, you were able to tap into your intuition for a solution one that helped you clear a hurdle or recover from a setback.
The crow takes its rightful spot in the victory wreath were it basks in the sun as it is admired and respected by its peers. This proud bird took risks, worked hard, and with a fire in its belly was driven to succeed. The flowers blossoming indicates the victory is not the end but rather a stepping off point as new beginnings will present themselves as a result of this achievement.
At the heart of today's reading is an accomplishment - one that you worked hard to obtain and because of this, you may be feeling rightfully proud at this moment. What you did was not a fluke or accidental success- no the Six of Wands indicates that it was the combination of your intention and follow-through that led you to this place of recognition. This is your time to bask in the glory of a job well-done as those around you will be supportive - you have earned the respect and admiration of your peers.
If you can practically taste success, yet it hasn't happened or you feel as though you are moving at a snail's pace to the finish line - you may want to consider if you are letting your pride or ego get in the way. Are you turning down help out of a fear of looking weak? Or is perfectionism creating an unrealistic expectation so that the job will never be complete and with that, any fear around failure or success is diminished?
The energy that is supporting you right now is that of getting you into a place of success as it will be a necessary stop for future achievements to build upon. Your desire for reaching a goal is fueling the fire within to succeed - this is a time to stay focused as victory is within reach.
The Three crows come together in the garden - where they celebrate with good food, plenty of fresh water and a comfortable place to rest away from the hot concrete of the city.
