As usual, spot on.

Self: The Chariot


Having the right vehicle to carry you, you are speeding toward victory.

The card in the Self position reveals aspects of how you perceive yourself right now.

The Chariot is a symbol of victory through mental control. The feeling of this card reminds us of an athlete poised for the starting gun. When the signal comes, he or she hits the ground running. The Chariot is not about the security of castle and moat. No, the Chariot represents an adventurous nature, a desire to seize the reins, a love of the open road.

The sphinx-like steeds are anxious to lunge forward and be on their way. This card reminds you to use the powers of your mind to steer that wild excitement and focus the energy, because the urge to action is unstoppable. When you take up the reins of the charioteer, you assume the rapid rise of the culturally, psychologically and technologically advanced and mobile individual, a world class citizen.

Situation: Six of Stones


A gap between have’s and have-not’s challenges the imagination to improve relationships between people.

The card that lands in the Situation position refers to social or circumstantial factors which could be affecting your life at this time.

The Six of Coins in this position points to some kind of imbalance in a social or family situation. This could have to do with a specific relationship or a sub-culture you are involved with. Either way, such a predicament can be frustrating because no amount of effort seems to make much difference.

It’s always challenging to help those who are currently dependent rise to a position of equality. Change can seem threatening in an unbalanced situation where all participants have become too comfortable with a one-way flow of energy or resources. The challenge for those who are empowered is to extend assistance in an empowering way, in a way that supports greater autonomy and self-sufficiency rather than dependency. Beware of patronizing attitudes.

Challenges/ Opportunities: Exemplar of Arrows


Speak up only when you are clearly aware of your motives and intentions. Maintain the highest standards.

The card that lands in the Challenges/Opportunities position refers to ways that you can turn obstacles into stepping stones.

With the King of Swords in this position, you are challenged to rigorously examine all your cherished assumptions in order to maintain the highest possible standard of ethics and morality. In other words, you cannot earn the right to influence others if you haven’t first ordered your own life.

Listen to everyone else first, and speak last. After others have said their piece, make the pronouncement that resolves the issue. When the King of Swords makes a choice or takes a stand, he does so with the highest and most broad-minded motives. Take this opportunity to point out progressive, democratic and noble paths of action. Stake out the higher ground and stay with it.

Foundation: Eight of Stones


Look at your situation objectively so you can avoid potential pitfalls.

The card in the Foundation position points to influences from your personal history, your roots and background.

The Eight of Coins in this position suggests that role models from the past demonstrate how much a hardworking, extremely productive individual can accomplish when she or he stays on task.

With an eye to detail, study those who went before you, so you will know how to eliminate false turns, wrong assumptions and immature approaches. This process will teach you how to winnow out those endeavors which are worth the effort and which may turn out to be fruitless and ephemeral. This will provide you with a great head start on your projects.

Recent Past: The Tower


Massive, sudden change took you by surprise. What will you do with the new possibilities that have arisen?

The card in the Recent Past position refers to events that are just departing, recently influential but now diminishing in power.

With the Tower in this position, you are recovering from a massive jolt that caught you entirely by surprise. As it shook you up, it put you in touch not only with forgotten vulnerabilities, but also with strengths you didn’t know you had. This gives you a chance to look at everything from a fresh perspective, especially to the extent the old order was nearly demolished.

Don’t lose your self completely while you grieve over the loss of familiar forms or structures. After all, every dark cloud has a silver lining, every crisis includes new opportunities. Focus on whatever these might be. Ask yourself how you might respond in a way that serves the greater good?

Higher Power: Strength


Once your impulses are under control, allow them to be directed by your higher self.

The card in the Higher Power position reflects the broader perspective and influence of your conscience, Guardian Angel, inner wisdom.

The Strength card in this position is asking you to tame your animal nature, and transfer its direction to your spiritual self, your more subtle, moral and sensitive side. Shift your consciousness away from the ego’s demands toward the greater good of all. Your new sense of gravity will make you a more effective example, even an inspiration to others. You see how easy it can be to resolve nagging conflicts that at one time tore you apart, robbing you of energy and focus.

Near Future: Judgment


You are getting ready to open like a caterpillar transforming into a butterfly that will emerge with new wings.

The card in the Near Future position indicates which way the wind is blowing with regard to your situation. If you follow the Advice card, however, you can improve on or neutralize tendencies.

With Judgment in this position, it appears that you are either accidentally or intentionally heading towards an encounter with some catalytic force that may transform your personality. Your sense of identity is being reformed. A sense of reunion may prevail because all the individuals pictured on this card are incarnations of the same soul meeting in a timeless place. You are uniting with your various selves.

As you assimilate all of your fragments into a larger sense of self, you will become a more whole person–deeper, wiser and more universal. Trust this clear channel of being and the response it evokes in others.

Blocks & Inhibitions: The Star


You forget to direct your optimism toward yourself.

The card in the Blocks position points to self-undermining tendencies, areas where you could be in denial, where you could get stuck — unless you examine yourself and make some corrections.

When the Star appears in this position, you may believe that good things never happen to you. In some ways you stand in the way of your natural brightness, goodness and truth.

Remember that the same love and service you extend to those around you is also being held for you. Try not to discount or resist your blessings.

Allies: Ace of Bowls


Be grateful that you have people on hand who will gladly give you the love and support you need.

The card in the Allies position points to people who can be supportive or helpful to you at this time.

The Ace of Cups in this position suggests that you have one or more people around you who love you unconditionally. If you were to ask them to reassure you, they would be happy to take you in and give you every confirmation of their love. They are willing to nurture you and provide an emotional and psychic safety net for you.

The abundant expression of affection these treasured people bestow upon you touches you deeply. You would do well to spend quality time with those whose generosity of spirit waters your emotional garden. Remember that you deserve to receive this kind of nourishment.

Advice: The World


Be serene in knowing you are succeeding in your goal.

The card in the Advice position suggests a course of action which will harmonize what you want with what is currently possible.

The World in this position may be giving you permission to do whatever you want. Presently, your motivation is close to the will of the divine. Even if you commit an error, it will be turned to the greater good. Stay active and just keep moving forward. It is unnecessary to keep checking or interrupting your spontaneity with calculation. Rather than look for consensus or affirmation from others, simply dance the dance. In other words, express yourself, react naturally and let the chips fall where they may.

What matters is divine intention. Whether or not human beings approve is less important. If you allow your ego to inflate, however, you cease to be useful to the greater plan.

Long-term Potential: Death


You are not tempted to return to the patterns of the past; you are truly prepared to move on.

The card in the Long-term Potential position points to unknowns still taking shape. It is the “wild card” yet to be played.

The Death card in this position points to the potential of severing a long-standing attachment that has repeatedly held you back, even when you swore you were truly done with it. At this point your confidence is focused enough so that you are no longer willing to repeat the old patterns.

Now you know you can cut the cords and free yourself. Mixed with a natural trepidation, there is tremendous optimism. You are on the verge of experiencing and accomplishing great things. As the glimmer of the future grows brighter, and you are willing to leave the past behind to pursue that light. You will feel much better when you finally cut the ties that bind.
