Unexpected news or messages arrive and will find you in the mood for socializing, meeting new friends, throwing a dinner party or attend a gathering of friends. One of the most wonderful things in life is the pleasant unexpected happenings that mark a turning point in our lives. You never know when accepting an invitation will have a profound change on your life. Adventure awaits!
The Page of Wands may be inexperienced, but he/she is not afraid or nervous when tackling something new. Especially if this is something that he has been preparing or thinking about for some time. Now is the time to act, to take the tiger by the tail and put your best foot forward. He will not let the fear of failure to stop him from trying and encourages you to do the same.
The Knight of Cups (one of our cards from last Friday’s reading) has you feeling a bit more romantic and sentimental than normal. Celebrating life and sensual experiences are important and should not be “put off”. Act from your heart, express your feelings, be gallant.
The Nine of Cups is also about celebrating life, your prosperity, and happiness. The figure has achieved a degree of success in his life, both material and emotionally, and he wants to share with others. He knows that sharing such gifts only increases them and brings much contentment. Nines are fruition and attainment and this card is sometimes called “the wish” card.
