Success is double-edged
Ace of Swords, IV of Pentacles Reversed, Queen of Swords Reversed
Merry meet, dear readers. Before you continue, take note: Tarot is for everyone, no matter your walk of life. While the cards have their own singular meanings, tarot is also largely intuitive and the meanings can change; no two tarot readers read the same way. This is a generalized reading, so take only what resonates with you and discard the rest. No picture for this week.
You’re fighting for gain this week, with confidence and ambition in abundance, and you stand to win. Success is a heady feeling, boosting self-esteem and pride while helping you to stand taller. Success (like a sword) is double edged, and as the saying goes, with power comes responsibility; how you take your next steps is crucial.
Stand tall with pride for your accomplishments, absolutely, but be careful that you don’t become greedy, single-mindedly focused only on more and holding on so tight that you begin pushing others away from you, cold and distant and so possessive of what you’ve gained that you close yourself off to the other good things around you.
Remember to always have compassion and remember how you began, and who was there to help you along the way. Be proud of what you’ve gained and work hard to keep it, but remember to be empathetic and generous to those around you, because if you’re not careful, you may find yourself alone when you need help the most.
I hope you find something for yourself in this reading, reader. May your days be filled with love and light, even when it all feels too much; and remember to always be kind. Merry part, and merry meet again! Blessed be.
