KNIGHT OF PENTACLES
This card, the Knight of Pentacles, talks of an improvement in your financial situations, the only catch in it being of keeping patience.
You would need to be hard-working and career-minded this year. The approach of yours towards life should be earthy, practical and calculated.
Passion and enthusiasm are definitely good things to have- but for you, they would prove to be beneficial only when we are able to channelize them into the streams of practical and serious concerns like career and long-term plans.
This year asks you to be mature and serious years ahead of your age.
In relationships, partners who are practical, loyal and hardworking, as well as assisting in advancement of career plans would be a much-welcomed boon.
Also, do not forget to reward yourself occasionally for the hard work you would put in, for the Knight of Pentacles does need to be rewarded for whatever it does, with all the diligence in the world.
THE MAGICIAN (REVERSED)
Beware, my dear Librans. Awaiting you this year is The Magician reversed. This card warns you against trickery and deception-of being careful about whom you place your trust in.
It also speaks of a lack of self-confidence-which could be both a reason and/or a consequence of error of judgment while placing trust (broken trusts do have a tendency to do the latter, trust me).
In turn, this would make you indecisive (a pet peeve of Librans, by default itself)-which would lower your self-confidence even more-entrapping you in a vicious circle of self-sustaining cause –and-effects of low self-confidence. So you would do better to avoid it right from the beginning itself.
Abuse of power is also indicated to be watched out for-either by you or against you.
SEVEN OF PENTACLES (REVERSED)
All-in-all, I’m afraid this year doesn't herald too well for you. It warns you of failed opportunities, despondency and self-induced money problems.
But don’t give way to a despair-just not yet. As all the reversed cards, it also has a catch.
The failures would indeed be there, but only because you would give up-when you would be so close to the FINISH LINE.
Also, you might need to set your priorities right-as this card also tells of losing sight of long-term goals.That could also be one of the contributors to your impending doom. To avoid that, you need to lay back in safety, comfort and un-burden yourself of some responsibilities that you’re carrying on your shoulder. When the shoulders get too heavy, the neck invariably gets lowered, limiting one’s sight-and thus, the ability to look at the long-term, faraway goals, that await us at the horizon. Try it yourself, someday-loading a heavy satchel on the back and looking at a far-off distance. Guess what?? You do end up short-sighted, looking only for the next place to remove that bag of sand that sits over your soaring back. The burdens invariably make one short-sighted; and decisions about long-terms must not be taken while the backs are laden with them.
“Don’t hold on. Let go and relax for a while.” is the message of the reversed Seven of Pentacles.
