Tarot Guidance by Rosalind Medea

Daily guidance to support you through the day
The Knight of Swords rides his way through "town" conquering all in sight. Brash, bold and aggressive, nothing is free from the "wrath" of this knight. Today the Knight of Swords may represent somebody you come into contact with. If so, be aware this person does not mince their words, so do not respond to them from any place other than your inner peace. If it's you that has a touch of the Knight of Swords going on today, be mindful of your communications with people.
You are holding your own as the emergence of the Queen of Pentacles indicates. Your maternal and nurturing instincts are coming to the forefront in your handling of all aspects of life, and you are feeling more secure and stable. As you learn to put your life in the trusty and capable hands of your intuition, you will notice that nurturing comes very natural to you.
If you are self-employed or are considering becoming such, you have an awareness of where you are at, what your next step is and exactly how to get there. Your confidence, enthusiasm and self-sufficiency - just like that which the King of Wands exudes in abundance - will ensure your success. And that is true of not just this time and in this situation, but in every step along the way in your journey.
The focus is on studying at this moment as the 8 of Pentacles indicates. You may enrol onto an online course in a subject area that strongly resonates with you. Or you may find yourself participating in a community project - for instance, if you have been thinking of growing your own fruit and veg garden at home, you may volunteer at a community garden to hone your skills.
You may receive news today that signals a new beginning as the Page of Wands suggests. Something that you have been waiting on is about to take shape. It may be a new project at work, a new job or an interaction with a love interest. Be patient and allow this "new beginning" to develop organically as intended.
You are shining and as you come into your power, it's not going unnoticed by those that do not have your best interests at heart. Somebody who you find yourself dealing with today may do their damnedest to get in your way. Be aware and rise to whatever challenge they throw at you. It is not an indication that you must give in, but rather stand your ground and continue to own the power you have so diligently been coming into over recent weeks.
The card of joy and contentment, the showing of the 10 of Cups today indicates that you are more secure and fulfilled in your life and in your relationships right now. This is a reflection of your positive mindset and commitment to acting on only that which is of your heart and soul. Enjoy your time with your nearest and dearest, family or friends today at home doing exactly that which brings you and they happiness.
The more you use the “muscle” that is your intuition, the stronger it becomes. And let’s be honest here, as your intuition grows stronger, you can not have it working for you at full capacity without complete and total trust in it. The High Priestess reminds you today if there’s any doubt in what you find yourself dealing with, don’t pander to the doubt, seek the truth from within. Keep trusting in your intuition. It has your best interests at heart and will never fail you.
Your world may be experiencing more balance and harmony at this moment in time as The Star suggests. There is profound healing taking place as this energy permeates all aspects of your life. As you continue to follow your destined path and be guided by your intuition, the effects of the healing is likely to be felt not just today but long-term too.
There’s a commitment from you to follow your destined path. When you commit to your purpose, changes occur on all fronts and in all areas of your life with speed. The Hierophant’s message today is to remind you to act on your commitment. For instance, if you have committed to building a website for your new business, then that commitment requires an action such as purchasing a domain name or web host. Whatever you are committed to, the next step is to take the action based on that intuitive nudge.
New beginnings are taking shape. It’s not that these new beginnings were not available to you already, but a new appreciation in life is now making you take heed of these opportunities. You are in a different place and a better place at that, and are ready to proceed with such new beginnings with a sense of joy and the desire to see them through!
The Knight of Swords is very gung ho in his approach. He has the will, the strength, and the courage to go after what he wants. In that he also has the tendency to be a tad impatient. You are making sound progress in your efforts right about now but remember, if you start to feel even a little impatient, play close attention to your heart rather than your head.
The suit of cups is linked with the water elemental, which in turn is associated with love. Home and family feature strongly in your day and the King of Cups is a reminder to nurture your relationships and your home life. The King of Cups is a family man and follows his heart in all that he does, and he makes sure that he enjoys everything he does, in all aspects of his life. That said, follow your heart and enjoy what resides in your heart.
With the commitment to be your true self in every moment of your life now, you are able to clearly see the truth and what matters. The truth you are now seeing may show you areas of life where you may have fallen short of taking responsibility. The energy of the Knight of Pentacles comes today to remind you to pay close attention to money and finances. How do you desire your finances to look? Help is at hand. Sit down, focus on your financial goals and allow your intuition to guide you on the necessary course of action – perhaps a budget is in order.
The 4 of Pentacles indicates the need to take a good look at what you perceive about money, then ask yourself if those beliefs are conducive to creating abundance in your life. Money is energy. If you have fears about money and spending it, then be aware that penny pinching is going to create exactly what you don't want, rather than what you do want. So if it's a continuous flow that you desire, then make sure your beliefs about money match that desire, then take the action to make it so - and yes, being responsible about your finances also includes spending money too.
