You are worn out by your sacrifices and efforts and feel like you cannot take it anymore; you want to break free from the restraints imposed on you. You went through a period during which you were forced to discipline yourself and to arduously pursue goals you eventually did not manage to achieve. Now you feel like there is nothing more you can do; you will be tempted to give up trying and to let everything fall apart in order to feel free. As the song goes, “I want to break free”! However, you will have to be very careful and to try to keep your impulsiveness under control. You are one step away from fulfilling a goal you have put a lot of time and effort into pursuing; it would be a shame to let it all go down the drain.
The Wheel of Fortune comes out of the deck upside-down today. When the card of luck and achievement arrives in its reversed position, your plans for happiness fail or are put on hold. Your intended bride or groom breaks off the engagement. Or you have to postpone the wedding due to health or money problems. Pay close attention to timing when the Wheel is reversed. Seemingly unimportant schedule changes point to deeper issues. Your lover arrives late for your dinner date, offering a reasonable excuse. Within the next several days, he or she becomes mysteriously distant and elusive. The reversed Wheel frequently highlights denial or delayed acceptance of some uncomfortable truth. Someone may be holding on to the past or taking refuge in immaturity. You realize you have outgrown a relationship you once thought would last forever.
Your inability to control your impulsiveness is causing you to make career-related decisions without having thought things through. The Temperance card reversed indicates that you currently have a tendency to intemperance. You are prone to acting without considering the consequences of your actions and to doing things you will later regret. Keep in mind that this is a transitional period in your life, and it is testing you. You will have to give up your bad habits and to exercise self-control in order to be able to make a new start.
You will try to put your life in order. Your willingness to set a schedule and stick to it, combined with your determination, vigour, patience and persistence, will help you accomplish your goals, no matter how difficult they may be to achieve. However, seeing that nothing comes for free, you will occasionally have to struggle for your dreams. You will be driven by passion and enthusiasm. Success will not come easy, but there are people in your life who will readily support you in your endeavours. You will sometimes try to impose your opinions on others and will prove particularly effective in your efforts to influence them in your favour. Take advantage of the promising period lying ahead of you by putting your plans into action.
The Hermit card slips out of the love tarot deck upside-down today. The reversed Hermit suggests that the card’s positive qualities are blocked, rejected or exaggerated. Your partner withdraws from intimacy because of some emotional issue. He or she may need to seek counseling. Or you ignore the need to spend time alone, immersing yourself in a social whirl because you fear introspection. To relate deeply to others, it is necessary to forge a connection with your own deepest self. You and your lover have lost a sense of connection. Each of you feels alone in the relationship. If you are single, you experience loneliness now rather than self-sufficiency. Persistent feelings of abandonment because of past experiences hinder your love life. You may be holding on to an unhealthy relationship out of fear of being alone.
You are at a crucial point in your professional and financial life. You will have to give careful consideration to all aspects of the situation and make an important decision about your future. You are well aware of the fact that you have to make a new start in your career and find an occupation that will also be financially more rewarding than your current one, but you feel pessimistic and intimidated by the future. You are clinging to the past and the present, and this is holding you back from pursuing your ambitions. You will have to overcome your insecurities and put a definitive END to a partnership that is standing in the way of your personal progress.
There will be changes in your life that will stress you out and force you to focus your attention on bringing things back into balance. You will have to accept your new reality, come to terms with a situation that will be unpleasant to you, and find a way out of your impasse. You will make sacrifices so as to get your life back in order. Make sure you keep a tight rein on your ego and pay more attention to certain matters. Once this period is behind you, you will become self-reliant and gain control of your life!
Today we have the Hierophant card reversed. When a card comes to us in this position, it means the qualities of the card have become unbalanced, resulting in either excess or lack. A reversed Hierophant may mean that you and/or your partner feel oppressed by convention. You quarrel about the kind of wedding ceremony which will suit both of you as well as your families. The upside-down Hierophant can also mean a sense of boredom with your ordinary, everyday life. You and your partner need to add excitement to your lives. For single people, the reversed Hierophant often suggests you cannot find love because you do not fit the social norms of those around you. Others view you as flouting the rules they obey. You must decide if you want to gain acceptance by conforming, or seek a more like-minded group.
The Tower card reversed is helping you escape the dead end you have reached. After a period full of stress, anxiety and endless dilemmas, the time has come for you to make radical changes in your life and actively pursue a better professional and financial future! You are putting all that is stagnant behind you and making a fresh start, without fear or hesitation. You will put a definitive END to a problematic situation, and although it will initially upset you, it will eventually turn out to be the best decision you could ever have made.
