Six of Swords Three of Wands The Empress

King of Cups Four of Pentacles Three of Swords
Six of Swords
A man ferries a woman and child towards another shore. The imagery suggests many stories and has a range of meaning. It can symbolize a passageway through hardship, getting or running away, moving to calmer waters, accepting the truth and moving on, being imprisoned by a limited point of view, and gaining a new perspective through travel or experience. It can also symbolize receiving or giving support.

Three of Wands
A man stands at a high vantage point watching ships head out or return from the sea. The Three of Wands represents the importance of carrying out one’s vision with foresight and waiting for the returns with patience.

III The Empress
The Empress sits in the middle of a wheat field, a forest and waterfall nearby. She is a vital archetypal mother figure—nurturing, and sensuous, relishing abundance and unrestrained pleasure. She is the only Tarot figure with a comfortable cushiony throne. For more insights on The Empress, you might also see the post on 4/23/07: “The Empress and the Ivy.”

King of Cups
The King of Cups’ throne floats on the sea. This card is symbolic of someone who has learned to negotiate life’s challenges or “ride the waves.” The King of Cups is depicted as an island or a dock anchored in the middle of a rough sea, symbolizing someone who provides emotional stability or refuge. This card may also signify the revered visionary or artist who has had to retreat or endure isolation in order to succeed.

Four of Pentacles
A man has a pentacle under each foot, one balanced on his crown, and another securely in his arms. The Four of Pentacles symbolizes the two different responses to insecurity—either being possessive and controlling, or taking a healthier approach by trying to create structure and stability. It can also symbolize saving or being protective of resources, including our free time.

Three of Swords
Three swords pierce a heart, the sky is gray and cloudy and pouring rain. This card symbolizes the often heartbreaking nature of truth, the sting that comes with a thoughtless or calculating comment, and the anguish we feel when we are aware of the suffering of others. The Three of Swords can also represent a dilemma or painful decision that needs to be made.

    I picked the 6 of Swords for this coming week. It just seemed to be fitting into the feeling of “ugh” I have for the week ahead. Hope you get some interesting posts on this.

    King of Cups. I feel as if I’ve been set adrift right now, having been tossed–literally!–into the middle of a molecular biology lab, but I’m pretty sure I’ll figure things out and reclaim my seat of certitude. 🙂

    I’m sorry everyone is having such a heavy week. As a teacher just starting summer break, I feel like I should be as relaxed as The Empress, but I feel a bit like the Three of Wands, a little anxious as I look out over the horizon. I must say, it does give me a lift to see all of your posts. Thank you for that.
