You the Significator and Your Life Force

Seven of Swords

The Swords suite is all about action. But just because youre busy, doesnt mean youre accomplishing anything. The Seven is about expending energy on futile actions, or feeling like any action you take will be useless and thus doing nothing. Like Sisyphus, eternally cursed to roll a boulder up a hill, yet never reach the top, you are in danger of wasting your time.

That Which Influences Your Thoughts

The High Priestess Reversed

The pythia, the ancient oracle at Delphi, is our High Priestess. When you ask her a question, she just points to the two small words carved over her temple doors: Know Thyself. People dont have to hide from you what you refuse to see.

That Which Influences Your Emotions

Four of Swords Reversed

The Four of Swords reversed is about working smarter, not harder. Youve been pushing lately, trying to force through a roadblock, but it isnt happening. You might get farther by imitating the old Greek symposium (which was basically a drinking party for scholars.) In other words, take a few colleagues out for beer and pick their brains.

That Which Influences Your Spirit

King of Cups

Born on land but ruling the sea, Poseidon combined the active quality of air with the emotional quality of water, and frequently fought in both realms. Likewise, this is a card for making your emotions work for you in other areas: an actor or musician using emotion to bring realism to a performance, or a businessman using charm and diplomacy at work.

That Which Influences Your Physical Self

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.

Forces that Oppose You

The Star

When Andromeda was tied to a rock, to await consumption by a giant sea monster, she could have sat down and accepted her fate. Instead, she raised such a fuss that a passing hero came to her aid. The Star, likewise, is the card of hope. It is telling you that this is the time to look up -- not around at your problems but above them -- and reach for the stars.

Other Forces that Oppose You

The Eight of Wands

Our card shows the hero Kadmos confronting the dragon of the Ismenian spring near Thebes. Just like Kadmos, who slayed the dragon and obtained water for the city, you are about to provide sustenance for a long cherished dream.

Energies You Need to bring to the Forefront

Page of Pentacles Reversed

Talos, the bronze robot of Crete, had a habit of hurling boulders at ships trying to land. But the Argonauts managed to dock after Medea convinced the creature to remove the single nail keeping its oil-like blood in its body. She swore that doing so would make him immortal, but in fact, it only made him dead. Donít let someone derail your dreams today.

The Outcome

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.
