It’s Jonathan with a very positive reading for your week ahead.
As you begin to find your groove with the new year, I hope you’re experiencing some excitement and a sense of the positive growth coming into your life.
Your reading this week is all about integrity, and implementing the wisdom you’ve gained through experiences from the past.
Your first card for the week, Justice, is a solid reminder that there are things out of your control, but that life will always turn towards fairness and balance in the end.
Rather than focusing on what may have happened to you in the last year or years, it’s time to settle into the understanding that we all have ups and downs, and the tides will change if you allow for the possibility.
The King of Pentacles, your second card, has mastered the ability to trust in his own worth and wisdom, which is what makes him so wealthy and prolific.
It’s time to believe in yourself. You are more powerful than you might think. However, when you run around trying to find things to make yourself ‘worthy,’ you are telling life you don’t believe in yourself.
It’s a very good sign the Knight of Pentacles has shown up again as your third card for the week. We saw him last week as your second card, when he reminded you how important a solid, healthy, routine can be.
With the King of Pentacles now as your second card, and the Knight as the third, there is real and tangible progress being made.
You are doing it! Keep up the good work, and remember to be patient and kind to yourself.
This is a great reading. I hope you are excited to discover the insights from your cards for the week.
#1: Justice | Fairness Will Prevail
Does it feel like something unfair has happened in your life? Have you been spinning in circles about the challenges you’ve faced?
The Justice card often indicates a period of rebalancing. If you made a mistake that hasn’t been dealt with yet, now is the time to do it.
The longer you hide, or hold on to something you messed up, the longer it will get in the way of moving forward.
This card is about retribution, however it is not without compassion. There is no black or white in this situation. Rather, there is room for self compassion, which will make everything easier.
If you happen to have made a mistake, or hurt someone, it’s time to fess up. The sooner you do, the sooner a sense of balance can return to you.
On the other hand, it could be that someone else has hurt you in some way, or that you’ve found yourself in an unfair situation where you’ve been taken advantage of.
In this case, you can rest assured that justice will be served. Equilibrium will return.
While it’s possible you’ve been in some kind of legal dispute, or you’ve experienced some kind of hurtful and frustrating injustice, for today, Justice is a reminder let go of what is out of your control.
It can be easy to get stuck on something that has been hard, or went wrong. But all this does is keep you from doing what you can do now. Now is the time to show up with integrity, and commitment.
The Justice card is all about honesty, fairness, and truth. So rather than complaining about the inequity you believe you’ve experienced, start living by these values, in this moment, in your life.
It’s no help to complain, or fight against, the injustice you’ve experienced. You have beautiful things coming your way, so get your ‘revenge’ by living at the highest level you can right now!
Being able to stop obsessing about what is not right in your life, and no longer reaching wildly for something to fix what appears to be wrong, is a sign of maturity. As you’ll see in your next card, you are developing into someone who is no longer fooled by fake promises of quick fixes.
#2: King of Pentacles | Wisdom into Wealth
Have you been experiencing a different kind of stability in your life? If not, then it’s time to start deepening into the wisdom you already have, though you might be avoiding it.
When the King of Pentacles is drawn, he is almost always a sign of prosperity to come. His sense in business, tenacity with work and life, and balanced discipline, have made him the majestic king he is.
One of the reasons he has become as successful, and deeply connected to life as he has, is he no longer needs to prove to himself to others he is capable and worthy.
You may have found yourself reaching and searching for things over the years to make you feel accepted in life. This could be spending money on items you thought would make you popular, or give you something to make you feel whole.
It could also be over striving in exercise, or dieting in order to get the ‘perfect body.’ Ultimately, you’ve come to see none of these things are what make you feel successful, happy, or worthy of love.
Now that you know this, or are coming to know this, life will begin to fill you up with the kind of sustained wealth and happiness that happens when you stop chasing, and start allowing.
You are far more capable than you think, and the King of Pentacles is here to remind you of that.
Slow down, trust your instincts, and walk the path of a wise King. He knows if you stay focused, and resist the urge to act impulsively, all things will come to you.
Our next card showed up in our reading last week, so he remains the key to accessing your kingly abilities, along with the internal and external wealth he represents.
#3: Knight of Pentacles | One Thing at a Time
Have you been getting your schedule in order and attending to your body and routine? If so, then keep it up, because the rewards are increasing the more you do.
The name of the Knight of Pentacles in the Golden Dawn tradition is “Lord of the Wild and Fertile Land.” This Knight has become masterful in the “wild land”, which represents an ability to navigate the beauty and wildness of life without getting thrown off course.
He has done this by being deeply connected with his body, and the work directly in front of him. He is not distracted by how much work he has, or by the tricksters who want to steer him off course.
Rather, he has found contentment in the day by day, and moment by moment, through his attention to the present situation.
If you’ve been feeling flustered and distracted lately, then it’s time to reconnect with your breath, your body, and to focus on one thing at a time. Take a walk, feel the rhythm of your breath, and treat yourself with dignity and kindness.
The Knight of Pentacles is masterful at creating wealth, but he does so through his hard work and natural intuition. This is not a time to overthink things, or create vast and intricate plans.
It’s time to find your natural rhythm. trust the next step will arrive in it’s right timing, and give your full and loving attention to whatever is in front of you right now.
All three of our cards represent honesty, wisdom, and integrity. These are powerful qualities for you to embody, and live by.
The Justice card is reminding you life will return to balance, and injustice will be righted. Your job is to focus on what’s in front of you, and trust by living your best life, the rest will follow.
Focus is something you are more than capable of, and the King of Pentacles is a sign of this. You have had enough of chasing after things and experiences to make you happy. Now is a time to find real wealth through patience.
Remain on your throne by staying present with what you are building and creating in your life and relationships. The Knight of Pentacles was drawn again to emphasize the importance of routine, and bodily presence.
Build a routine to serve you in all areas. You don’t need to do it all at once, instead create a plan that allows you to take your time. Doing things correctly, and with proper attention, will serve you more right now than trying to do everything under the sun, plus some.
And in Service,
P.S. Are there injustices you just can’t stop thinking about? What would you like to build into your weekly or daily routine?
P.P.S. If you’re feeling stuck in your life right now, or you can’t figure out what’s getting in your way, you can schedule a private reading with me here and we can look into it together.
