It’s the 14th week of the year and the card of the week is the Magician. The striking thing about this week is that all of the cards except for Sunday’s are reversed. Usually, if an entire row is reversed, I flip the cards but since there was one that wasn’t reversed, I read it with the reversals this week. We’re right in the thick of Mercury Retrograde and it’s time to get down to the nitty gritty about what is standing in our way. Things are volatile so be careful if you don’t want to start a war. The Magician is here to say that even when things seem so very messy you are in control and you can determine the outcome if you choose so keep your head in the game. The number of the week is 5, a number of overcoming challenges.
Mantra: I know what I’m doing.
