It’s the 5th week of the year and the card of the week is the Knight of Pentacles. The Knight of Pentacles is on his way to success but his mission is all about the journey, not the end goal. Therefore, the knight takes his time getting to where he needs to go because he’s on a quest to experience all the pleasures in the world, not just to obtain them. The number of the week is 5, a number of overcoming hardships. This week’s cards seemed to repeat the same message and it’s very clear to me what it says as a whole: you are being given the chance to experience great happiness and fulfillment but sacrifices must be made in order to reach your goal. So remember, even if something very painful happens this week, know that it is in the name of removing big blockages from your life so that what you really need will grow. This week will also be exciting with a partial eclipse on Friday and a very lucky Sun trine Jupiter on Saturday. Not to mention that Mercury also enters Aquarius this week. We’ve got a lot going on so fasten your seatbelts, things are going to get really interesting.
Mantra: Buckle up, buttercup, destination success!
