Current situation : Ace of Cups
Opportunity to make a deep emotional connection (not only romantic). Possibility of finding your true vocation, getting more tuned on your inner voice. However don’t forget: the Aces indicate only potentials. Your conscious efforts are still needed to get tangible results.
Beware of this : Page of Wands
Do not wait for initiatives, approvals or empowerments from the outer world to get started. You need to find your motivations within yourself. Spontaneity is highly recommanded, still pay attention to the details to identify in time the possible obstacles and downsides.
Focus on this: The Fool
Rely on your instincts and intuition. Follow your spontaneous impulses. Take a new, more open approach, without prejudices. Spontaneous beginnings, changes of direction, unpredictability, suddenly emerging opportunity. Still, take in consideration the downsides of this card: lack of responsibility, not caring about the longer term consequences, rushed decisions. Avoid such extremes.
Possible outcome : The Hermit
By following your instincts you may realise: you need a temporary withdrawal from the world. This is necessary to build up your inner resources and restore your integrity. You may recharge your batteries by visiting a retreat center, spending time in the nature, practicing daily meditation, yoga, etc. Pay more attention to your spiritual path and less to worldly activities.
Sometimes such periods of solitude seem to be the result of an outer event ( loss of a relationship, job, moving in an other city, country), but even so they carry hidden blessings. Don’t forget that the new moon of the 15th of February was a partial solar eclipse and as such it may indicate changes catalysed by pressure and some frustrations. Still such experiences are very useful as they force you to do some soul – searching and to get connected with the Hermit, the archetype of the Wise Old Man within. Integrating in your conscious personality the qualities of the Hermit such as experience, wisdom, self-sufficiency, knowledge will lead to growth and renewal on a long term .
