Fate is a rather old fashioned idea. In the Middle Ages, in England, when you met a very poor person, that person would be described as an ‘unfortunate’ – literally, somebody who had not been blessed by fortune. This is no longer vogue. Nowadays, people might call that same person a ‘loser’ or try to sell them a self-help book or DVD.
Have you recently set something in motion? You may be due a turn of good luck. When the Two of Wands card appears it means that what you wanted to create looks likely to happen. An offer, proposal or invitation of some kind is about to be presented to you.
The Ten of Swords is the card we see when we’ve reached the bottom and there is nowhere to go but up. It is always darkest just before the dawn, and this card shows this truth with its depiction of a golden sun rising in the background. This card teaches us that we’re only a victim if we choose to be. Be the phoenix rising from the ashes in your life.
