Today's reading for August 12
CARD 1 SITUATION: 2 OF CUPS IN REVERSE ~~ Mercury goes into retrograde today and coupled with the already intense eclipse window, it's going to be a bit painful for many of us. This is going to be strongly reflected in how we are dealing with our relationships. Sulking, pettiness, and in general apathy and arguments are going to be on the dish for the day, in fact off and on for awhile. Emotions are intense and being able to effectively communicate how we feel is getting lost in the translation. Some relationships won't survive this one so be prepared. CARD 2 CHALLENGES/OPPORTUNITIES: 2 OF PENTACLES ~~ The more you hide or try to fight the energies of the cosmic phenomena right now, the more you're going to feel the sting of it. Hang ten with those waves instead. Stay as flexible as you can and multitask. This is only temporary. Work on staying grounded and balanced right now. CARD 3 POTENTIAL: KING OF WANDS ~~ As I said, emotions will run high but most especially, anger, needs to be tempered and controlled right now. Otherwise the King would have stay committed to what is already on your plate, to see through those projects you have started. Definitely do not start a new one if you don't have to. CARD 4 NEAR FUTURE: 2 OF SWORDS IN REVERSE ~~ It's time to reach a compromise in order to maintain peace and balance in your life and work. The time to avoid that which you have been is over and you are being forced to deal with it and put things to rest. CARD 5 DAILY LESSON: 4 OF WANDS ~~ Given all the emotional stress, things are actually looking good on the home front. Take time out to enjoy being with family today.
