November 15-21, 2018: Ten of Wands

A young man carries a heavy burden but he’s almost reached his destination. This card portrays the end of a cycle, such as collecting the summer crop and bringing it to market. It’s a struggle to get there. He’s tired, overworked and needs this income. This card is about stress and the achievement that comes after.

On November 15th, instinctive Mars enters passive Pisces. Your desires will become moody and interchangeable. You’ll feel highs and lows in your energy and emotions. The next day, Venus stops spinning in retrograde and returns to direct motion. Venus is the second planet from the sun, ruled by Aphrodite. This is the planet of self love and beauty.

Mercury, the planet of communication turns retrograde at the same time. This means you will no longer feel the gifts of Mars. Communication will suffer, negotiations will be difficult and learning new things will take greater effort.

Use this week to pause and examine your lifestyle. Are you a workaholic? Or should you probably take on more responsibility for your life? Careful not to mimic the Ten of Swords. He’s responsible and hard working, yes. His responsibilities have become a burden and it’s all too hard to let go. Don’t be so egotistical to think that you’re the only one who can do the job. Delegate, let it go, and enjoy life a little.
