The Wheel of Fortune implies that while a big change is coming your way, you don't really have any control over the outcome. It's hinting you to practice humbleness and acceptance. Most likely, these are changes that have nothing to do with you personally, as in, you haven’t done anything to start them nor could you have done something to stop them. But they are highly likely to affect the way you live your life. Bigger forces are at work. Fate might be stepping in, or the conditions on the ground might be changing due to practical or legal reasons. Either way, at this point, it is best to just accept that somethings are just meant to be, or aren’t meant to be.
You’re likely to experience success soon. It can come about due to the completion of a project you’ve worked on hard and long, or an achievement that personally means a lot to you. You’re likely to be recognized for your efforts. If you’re a writer, this could mean getting published. If you’re an artist, it could mean getting a gallery to exhibit your work. If you work for someone else, you might be elected the Employee of the Month or get a promotion. If you are a stay-at-home mom, expect your children and spouse to recognize how wonderful you are. What matters is that you’ll be recognized for your contribution to other people’s lives, to a cause, or to an organization. Accept the accolades, you deserve it.
You’re likely to experience new joys, wonders and blessings that might feel sudden or unexpected but oh-so-welcome. What a relief it will be when everything flows gracefully.

Sometimes things happen just when we give up. The Sun predicts such blessed surprises. If you feel that you’re trying to control or force situations into happening a certain way, you might want to let go, really let go. That’s when it will happen the way you want! Your life is heading in a highly positive, beautiful direction; relax and enjoy the wondrous ride.

The High Priestess indicates unknowns and mysteries that aren’t likely to be revealed any time soon. Have you been finding it difficult to open up to people? You’re a deeply spiritual person, someone who experiences life more profoundly than many others. So, it’s not that your friends or family don’t care or that they don’t try to understand; it’s just that you need someone who can see through situations, and also see through you, better. You can wait it out, or in the meantime you can also seek consultation, meditate and contemplate. This isn’t a favorable time to act. Rather, it’s a time to pause, tune in and listen.
The Hermit is a reminder to start focusing on your inner, real needs. It might be a good time to withdraw from the world around you for a while – not cut anybody off or disappear, but simply take a break to concentrate on your self-development. Discover what your soul wants and needs. Activities such as journaling, painting, meditation or a silent retreat could help. The Hermit could also symbolize a wise person who can help you find your inner truths. They could be a teacher, a healer, a psychic or a spiritual advisor. They could also be a writer whose books might change how you think and feel, and therefore have a real impact on your life. These days, seek such wisdom everywhere you look.
You might be feeling like the black sheep. Someone who’s different, who thinks and acts in their own unique way, someone who’s true to themselves no matter how other people react. While in most situations it might seem smart to blend in, it’s people like you, people who have a certain black sheep quality that go on to change the world. If you have an innovative idea for a new business, or feel like giving everything up to go travel the world, or want to come out of the closet about anything that makes you unique, be it your ideas, way of life, beliefs, the Hanged Man suggests you must! Allow what sets you apart to shine. It’s the right time to stand up for your soul.

If you’re about to start dating again, take a new job, join a social club, or start a fitness program, now is a great time.

You might find yourself in a situation where you feel overwhelmed by the power display of the people involved. They might try to stifle or threaten you or others whom you hold dear. They might do this overtly and directly, or very subtly through emotional bullying. Either way, the Devil suggests that this evil is way weaker than it looks. Don’t fall prey to this scheme. You have the power to walk away completely, or to change the situation if you choose to stay. If a part of you wants nothing changed, discover what ulterior motive you might have for keeping yourself in such an unpleasant situation. Is it the financial security? The promise of love? Don’t sacrifice your long-term self-respect for short-term gain.
You’re either likely in the middle of a challenging and still escalating situation, or about to get entangled in one. This situation contains contradictions, arguments, and problematic moments. At times it might even make it difficult to keep everything under control. But the Chariot suggests eventual success. It will require you to work very hard and be emotionally strong. Even though tough decisions might overwhelm you, you have what it takes to get the results you want. Apply your will power and make your decisions heard by everyone loud and clear. You’ll feel much stronger afterwards as you’re very likely to improve your conversational and negotiation skills! Now is not the time to back down; buckle up and take the next challenge head on.
The Strength card hints at the likelihood of events that affect whole families, neighborhoods, cities or even countries. It could be a natural disaster, a man-made problem, political unrest, or another rare ordeal that affects large groups of people. You might lose your inner-grounding and get emotionally carried away. You might find yourself taking sides, feeling angry or frustrated, or even getting defensive. It would serve you, however, to do the opposite. Try to come back to your center, back to calm, regardless of what’s happening out there. Find compassion for those adversely affected, and have compassion for yourself even when you feel negative. You might not have the strength to change the whole world, but you do have the strength to change your own.
The things that are happening right now most likely have roots in past events. It may feel like you're repeating a cycle, or simply reaping what you’ve sown. If you aren’t happy with the way things are turning out, Justice indicates the need for absolute honesty. Explore in your mind and heart how you could’ve done things differently in the past and prevented things to become what they are today. But also, how can you change the way you react right now to be able to create a different and better future? If you’re happy with the way things are unfolding, you might still want to do the same inner analysis – pinpointing what worked will help you be even more confident in the future.
You might feel a powerful call from within, a tremendous inner push to change the entire way you’ve been living your life or the way you’ve been looking at life. This might include moving to a whole new city or even a country, taking a job in a brand-new field, picking up a hobby that you normally would never consider, or dating someone who, seemingly, isn’t your type. Whatever it is you’re doing differently is thoroughly good for you now and will open new doors in the future as well. It is a welcome change, one that your soul will enjoy for years to come. If this doesn’t sound like you, you’re likely turning a deaf ear to your inner calling due to fear of change.
