The problems and setbacks you have encountered lately have disappointed and discouraged you. Your mind is filled with pessimistic thoughts and you feel like all hope is gone, but the truth is that the only thing currently missing from your life is faith in yourself and your abilities. It all depends on you and how you will choose to handle things. Don’t give up; this is a crucial point in your life and, if you show more patience and perseverance, the tide will soon turn in your favour. The Strength card reversed is encouraging you to focus more on yourself and to work on your self-esteem. Things will soon change for the better…
The love tarot card today gives us the Magician reversed. The reversed position of the Magician acts as a warning. Your charisma and powers of persuasion plummet today. Attempts at flirtation are likely to fall flat today. Don’t try to charm your partner into doing things your way. This is also a bad day to meet your lover’s parents for the first time. This card can also indicate you and your lover fail to communicate. For single people, this card suggests you feel like the magician’s bumbling apprentice in your efforts to find a partner. Perhaps you should re-consider the impression your appearance, words, and actions create. The appearance of the Magician card upside-down can mean someone seeks to manipulate you today. A charming but untrustworthy person seeks to seduce you. Or you may have a rival for your partner’s affections.
You are going through a strange and dangerous period in your professional and financial life; things are too fragile. You may be making overly risky plans and mindless choices. The difficulties you are currently faced with are due to the hastiness and carelessness you have shown in the past (and continue to show in the present). Keep in mind that this is not the right time to take risks and to make decisions with uncertain consequences. Try to rein in your tendency to act neglectfully and make sure you live up to your responsibilities.
Giving yourself room to do what is right for you may bring up issues of “fitting in with the group.” Sometimes what is “right” changes, and you must break with the past. Resistance to change comes from fear that a particular love source will disappear as soon as we shift. Grounding yourself in your own reality through physical exercise is a powerful way to practice meditation without doing anything much out of the ordinary. Remind yourself that self-love is what we need most.
