The 6 of Swords has a very strong message for us - it has turned up four months in a row. It is encouraging our spiritual growth and the opportunity to learn more about compassion and understanding towards our fellow
beings. This is coupled with the 7 of Swords which also appeared last month - this card urges us to be diplomatic and tactful and not to be aggressive and pushy in our interactions with others. We will get much more accomplished if we are pleasant and thoughtful in our transactions.
As we start off this month we are encouraged to take a leap of faith and leave our
comfort zones behind. We can't progress if we always stay where we are comfortable and jumping into the unknown is where miracles happen. It is a time of new beginnings, so we must try to embrace that and put any fear of the unknown behind us.
The first part of July is a time to be tactful and diplomatic. It doesn't serve us to rock the boat at this time. Try to get on
with everyone, whether they are being unreasonable or not. A clash of egos won't help us at all and could hinder us more in the long term. This is the calm before the storm, as we will feel that nothing particularly exciting is happening and our lives might be feeling very mundane and uninteresting. Make the most of this peaceful time as it's not going to last for long.
In the middle part of the month there will be conflicts and changes. Any problems that have been brewing or festering below the surface are likely to come up to be resolved. This is the only way, and it can end up with lost friendships if we don't deal with things in a fair and honest manner. It is important that all these issues see the light of
day and are dealt with, because then the various situations can be truly healed and we can all move on. We will also find that a number of things could be leaving our lives - this can be in all or any of the different aspects of our lives. The important thing is to go with the flow - if we can see this as a housekeeping exercise, where the old and no longer relevant is removed in order to leave room for the new it doesn't have to be such a painful and/or emotional experience.
The Universe is just clearing out the people and/or situations in our lives which are no longer benefiting us, so that we can start a new chapter without a load of baggage holding us back.
Towards the end of July things will be settling down more and the emphasis is increasingly on the spiritual and inner journey, rather than the material side of things. We will be gaining
knowledge and experience, so that we can better conduct ourselves with dignity and understanding. This will be important because some of us will be called upon to step up and help others who need some wisdom and advice as they navigate their own paths. We will become the counsellors and healers and will be able to speak from valuable experience as we are just a bit ahead on the journey we are all on.
As we come to the end of the month we will be getting small rewards for the efforts we are all making. There is a lot of hard work ahead, but money will be coming to us in order to keep our heads above water.
Our luck throughout the month is the feeling of excitement and wanting to go out and take the world by the throat. We won't
want to sit at home and wait for things to come to us anymore - that time is past. Anytime we go out and spread the word and be our authentic selves, we will be reaping the rewards of those actions.
Have a very happy, healthy and adventurous July!
