The card of the Week is the 7 of Wands. You may feel like you’re engaged in battle all week, but you’ll come out wining in the end. Mercury also enters the mysterious, vindictive sign of Scorpio and will stay there until November 20. Be prepared to look deep inside yourself and find the source of the sting. You may see some things you’re not going to like, but through the wise intelligence of Mercury, you’ll be able to approach healing with a logical attitude.
Excuse the throwback to an old deck I used before I switched to the Botticelli Tarot. I twisted my ankle and I can’t walk back and forth between my computer and the scanner at the moment. I like this deck because I colored it so it’s a great one to fall back on 🙂 I’ll return to the Botticelli Tarot next week. Thanks for your patience!
