Stealing. Or, give me some of whatever he or she is having. When I drew these cards early this morning before the death of the latest IPHONE (6) and subsequent upgrade (10, I went on strike when they discontinued the headphone jack) which has been serving as my personal hotspot because the wind f**** my satellite dish once again a thought came to mind that has been occurring the last few days and that is that the past seems to be speeding up and the future seems to be slowing down. I’m not quite sure what that even means, but I like it. Must be an astrological thing.
Today in the past is the glorious Ace of Coins. It’s sort of amazing to see this card at all let alone how often it’s been showing up lately, so something big is happening, or more likely, in the past position, has happened. A major accomplishment or more like a new job, a birth, a windfall. An award of some kind. A reward of some kind. But here’s the deal about this Ace of Earth: it likes the ‘straight path’, as we see on the card, the blindingly bright gold gift is being presented to us by the Skyhand who is lowering the prize over a straight, narrow garden path. The straight and narrow, as it is said about this picture, meaning that this is was actually hard-earned and well deserved. Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn are all represented here, the salt-of-the-earth. The gift of ‘talent’ is not wasted.
This has led to the present, the happily-ever-after 10 of Cups (Pisces/Cancer/Scorpio) and this is as good as it gets. We’ve done well in the past – this card sometimes gives me a ‘gold watch’ vibe, that is a parting gift of some kind or a retirement bonus, probably all going into your home and family, or a new home and marriage.
And here he (or she) comes, the sneak o’ the week, the 7 of Swords. In the future position, the human with their head down hoping to not be noticed as he steals away with someone elses’ stuff is heading right for that happy couple and their happy home in the present position. This is straight up Watch. Your. Stuff. The Swords are of the mind, our ideas and as we know about this card, intellectual property. This could be someone with some bad ideas and possibly an offer of some kind, but if 2 cards were never meant for each other it’s the honest, straight up and solid Ace of Coins and the sharp but shady 7 of Swords. I don’t like.
This card in this position is always a warning to not get involved in anything even remotely dishonest. Plug your ears and go ‘nanananananaaaa’. This could even mean someone coming to you with stolen property, intellectual or not, and it’s not a welcome vibe. This could be home theft, and you need to watch who comes in and out of your house if you’re having any work done.
However, this card could also mean ‘stealing happiness’, or ‘stealing moments’ of quality time with a loved one or loved ones in the future, or being presented with some ‘secret plan’ that may be rather epic in scale, a dream come true almost. Or, somehow you’re being offered a life-changing position – an important one – that you or the family or the public didn’t even realize existed, was available or open to you. There will probably be some behind-the-scenes negotiations, but still – lawyer up.
He or she wants what you have, because to them, you seem to have it all, but you deserve it.
