Your Present Position in the World

Page of Cups

Despite his wings, Eros was born of the sea, along with Aphrodite, and is often depicted in watery pastimes. He is also, of course, known for inspiring emotion, and therefore goes brilliantly in Cups, the suite of the emotions. Our Page is bringing you fresh passions, childlike wonder and great communication between lovers or partners.

Your Goals for the Next Year

The King of Wands

Ares is our King of Wands. At his best, he is a forceful leader that is passionate, dramatic, exciting and bold. He gets results by taking risks, and he gets them fast. In the ancient world, hed be Alexander the Great, conquering through revolutionary military tactics; in the modern, hed be Bill Gates and Steve Jobs. Hes telling you to take a risk and innovate.

That Which Empowers You

King of Swords

Jasons throne had been usurped by his uncle Pelias, who would only give it back in exchange for the Golden Fleece. In order to succeed, Jason had to find out where this fleece thing was, put together a group of heroes to help him get there, and lead them past a number of challenges. Likewise, the King of Swords allows you to use intellect and leadership to succeed today.

Powers You Need to Develop

Two of Pentacles Reversed

The Two of Pentacles reversed features Chloris, nymph of youth and flowers. On this card, she is echoing the poet: "gather ye rosebuds while ye may, old Time is still a-flying: And this same flower that smiles to-day, to-morrow will be dying." In other words, partying is great, but sometimes, you have to buckle down.

Your Present Material Self

Page of Swords Reversed

Paris eloped with Helen because Aphrodite had promised him the most beautiful woman in the world for his bride. The fact that Helen was already married, and to the crazy king of Sparta, wasnt his problem, now was it? Ummm . . . . You know, enthusiasm is a great and wonderful thing, but maybe a little more thought needs to go into a certain situation just now.

Your Present Emotional State

Nine of Cups Reversed

The river Euphrates was both a blessing and a curse to its people. On the one hand, it gave life to millions. On the other, jealous rivals ensured that war was common, the marshes around the river carried sickness, and floods were always a problem. The Nine reversed is about your life not looking as good from your perspective as it does to everyone else.

Your Present Spiritual Self

Five of Wands Reversed

The Five of Wands reversed can indicate an end to the crazy, or at least the beginning of the end. Eros up there is still causing mischief, but his victim is getting wise to his games.

That Which Opposes You

Page of Pentacles

Science fiction isnt new. Take the "giant" Talos, for instance, which was basically the worlds first robot: a big, bronze automaton made by Hephaistos, and gifted by Zeus to his lover Europa as a bodyguard. Likewise, you are at the beginning of a bold new venture, maybe entrepreneurial, that has the potential to remake your world in a new way. Go for it!

What You Need to Do to Realize Your Goals

Ace of Cups Reversed

The Cups are about your emotions, and how you’re perceiving a situation. And right now, instead of an oceans worth of emotion, youre feeling more like a desert, empty and dry. Maybe youre working too hard, maybe youre not spending enough time with friends or family. But something is draining you.
