And you might notice we have an extra card today. As I laid them down I noticed that the king of wands was standing behind The Emperor.... more of that to unfold...
The universal comms team came up with the word "Power" and of course the first listed song with this title on YouTube was Little Mix and "Power"... and boy what a song and video of raw power !
Let's see how this shows up in our cards ...
First out today is the 2 of pentacles ( pentacles representative of the earth element and manifestation)
I hear the phrase "The duality of opposites"
Well she doesn't seem to know if she's coming or going, she's trying to get balance and is feeling a little stuck and frustrated.
Passions are running high....with all of that deep sacral orange in the card.
Orange is the colour of creativity and sexuality.
In balance it brings joy, and enthusiasm, promoting a general sense of wellness.
When this Chakra is blocked we experience: guilt, restlessness, confusion and lack desire or pleasure(read pent up frustration).
So what's going on with the pairing of 4 The Emperor and the king of wands (wands representative of the fire element and action)
Well a potent combination following on from the energy of our first card.
They both have a strong presence and power. They both share the Astrological Influence of Aries.
Aries is a passionate, motivated and confident leader who builds community with their relentless determination.
Direct in their approach, they often get frustrated by exhaustive details and unnecessary nuances.
So pop the authoritative structure of The Emperor and the driven entrepreneurial style of the king of wands and together they are a force to be reckoned with.
An alternative view of this might be that as the king of wands came out behind The Emperor, he might be pushing The Emperor, bringing out his desire for power over not empowerment.
Together a potent force to be reckoned with, apart there's a potential for them to go head to head becoming forceful, territorial or tribal in the pursuit of their views and ideas, then a conflict could ensue that would be just like a powder keg of energy ready to go off.
Looking at our third card today 16 The Tower , I'm wondering just how this pent up energy is actually going to manifest itself.
Let's just say there is nothing subtle about this bolt of lightening.
The good news is that
In every chaos there is an order hidden within it.
What we see as a chaos, is actually driven by a very disciplined and dedicated order of things.
"What we need to do is focus on the stuff before us, make our way through this chaos, and that order will sort itself out for us".
- Sapan Saxena
Just when all seemed to be moving onto firmer foundations.... the next shift of our foundations occurs.
Divine intervention kicks in and new enlightenment is revealed.

Pretty "Power - full" cards today.... things are about to get even more transformational and interesting perhaps ?
