|The Significator represents you and your current state of being.|
|The Page of Swords
Aphrodite had promised Paris that Helen of Sparta would be his bride, but how to get them together? She solved the problem by sending Paris to Sparta as an envoy, at a time when Helens husband was away. And then sent Himeros (god of desire) to seal the deal. Likewise, you can reach a desired end more easily through diplomacy than force today.
|The Crossing Card denotes that which opposes or influences 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.
|The Foundation card addresses the origin of your question.|
|The High Priestess
The pythia at Delphi is our High Priestess. She was famous for never telling anyone everything, especially those who thought they already knew it all. Donít accept the surface situation now; dig for hidden truths.
|The Recent Past represents past events and concerns.|
|The Moon Reversed
Selene, goddess of the Moon, had a handsome son Narcissus, who took one look at his reflection and fell hopelessly in love -- with himself! He wasted away, refusing to stop admiring himself long enough even to eat. The Moon reversed warns of chasing an impossible dream without knowing when to call it quits. Sometimes giving up can be a good thing.
|The Crown addresses issues that are significant in the present or may come to pass in the future. This card foretells future events which you may or may not occur, depending upon how you respond to the present situation.|
Hermes, our magician, was known for his charm, cleverness, and diplomacy. And for being the biggest con artist on Olympus! Drawing this cards means that you have the skills to make things happen. Just remember to use your powers for good.
|The Future depicts that which lies ahead.|
|Three of Cups
One of the nicest cards in any tarot deck is the Three of Cups. So who else to grace ours but the Graces themselves? Daughters of Zeus and the mermaid Eurynome, they were nymphs of high spirits, friendship, and socializing. Gracing the trains of both Aphrodite and Hera, they also brought joy and laughter to romance and marriage. Drawing the Three promises a good time ahead!
|Emotions card signifies the current state of your emotional self.|
|Ace of Swords Reversed
After defeating the minotaur, Theseus agreed to help a friend acquire the beautiful Persephone for a wife. Just one problem: she was already married, and to Hades, god of the underworld! Nonetheless, the two set off and managed to enter Hades kingdom -- only to immediately fuse to the rocks, unable to move. The Ace of Swords reminds that rash action has a cost.
|External Forces represents the influence of others in your life as well as trends in your relationships with others.|
The Strength card reversed is about feelings of inadequacy, lethargy, pessimism, and the unwillingness to act. Like Hercules giving up halfway through his labors in despair, until Athena arrived to kick his butt. And to remind him that winning immortality, or doing anything else worthwhile, was never designed to be easy. So get back in there!
|Hopes and Desires stands for the hopes and desires you have for the outcome of your question.|
|Five of Swords Reversed
Hercules had a hell of a battle with the Lernaean Hydra. Multiple heads, poisoned blood, and a vicious temper do not make for a fun fight. But he finally managed it, and discovered afterwards that its poisoned blood was perfect for dipping his arrows in! Thanks, Hera! You, too, may soon see the silver lining in a recent cloudy prospect.
|The Outcome the ultimate outcome your question. Remember the future is not predetermined. Interpret this card in the context of the entire reading and as an indicator of the path you are currently on, but not bound to. reading.|
Hebe, goddess of youth, was famous for being one of the few even tempered gods. There was no drama with Hebe, no tantrums, no spiting people for fun. Just common sense and peacemaking, which, lets face it, was almost a first for Olympus. Likewise, Temperance is the card of cutting yourself and everyone around you a little slack. Ahhh, now doesnt that feel better?
