Cards duplicated in the last 6 months:
April and July – Queen of Wands

March and July – The Tower
This month is all about business – the returning
energy of March/April is about determination and focus, also studying and looking for a new job or project in the midst of changes in our lives – whether instigated by ourselves or not.
As we start off this month we might be looking at investing in a course of study, or a new project – something that will stand us in good stead for the future.
The first part of
July intimates that we’ll be feeling stuck – that whatever way we turn someone is going to be upset with us. This feeling of being stuck can also be relevant to feeling stuck in a job – that we aren’t progressing or earning enough and we need to look for something more rewarding and, maybe, very different.
In the middle part of the month we would be wise to take a step back and acknowledge all that we have achieved in
our lives so far. This could relate to a family we have created and nurtured, or the work that we do which impacts others in a positive way and will be the legacy we leave behind. The cards are indicating a new chapter and so often we overlook our achievements and throw ourselves immediately into the next venture. So let’s give ourselves a minute - sit down, reflect, pat ourselves on the back and acknowledge the end of an era. Then jump up and grab the energy of wanting
to take the world by the throat and not being willing to wait for things to just turn up – times they are a-changing!
Towards the end of July we will need to hold onto our vision of what we want in our lives, but at the same time be proactive in paving the way for it to manifest. This can lead to difficult choices – what are we prepared to let go of in order to create the life we are dreaming of? If we aren’t
prepared to make changes then we will just stay in the same spot – however vivid our dreams may be!
As we come to the end of the month it’s as if the Universe is wanting to step on the accelerator while we are busy applying the brakes. If we haven’t already started letting go of people, jobs and situations in our lives, and they have passed their sell-by date, then the Universe will step in with its big broom and start to do
the work for us. If we are resistant to the process then it can turn into a painful and chaotic time. However, if we relax into the knowledge that we won’t lose anything that is important to our lives going forward, then it will be a much easier ride. Time to go with the flow!
Our luck throughout the month is to be careful who we talk to and about what. Gossipy people should be avoided at all costs,
and if they are unavoidable then make sure nothing is said that will come back and bite us in the future – don’t forget that gossips don’t keep secrets! It is also a time of opening our minds up to new ideas – letting our mischievous and inquisitive inner child out to play and discover new things.
This month looks to be very grounded and very much about making money in a new and different way. It’s about
acknowledging our achievements (however big or small), discarding the elements of our lives that are holding us back and opening our minds to new adventures.
Wishing you a happy and fulfilling July – may the sun shine down on you – whether it’s physically or metaphorically.
