Tarot Sentence:

Upright: Courage subdues with force.

Inverted: Discord abuses with weakness.

☆ Special Guidance:

Mundane: There are powerful spiritual forces at work and obstacles to your success will be overcome…you will be given the power to succeed.

Esoteric: This is an important Karmic period, and actions taken during this time will be the needs of your tomorrow. If you are feeling challenged, it’s because you are harboring a deep-seated misunderstanding, mistrust, or resentment toward someone (perhaps even God), and you are being given the opportunity to resolve it once and for all…remember, love conquers everything, even Karma.

Best Course of Action: Put aside the notion that your prayers can only be answered by striving or personal effort, and if you pray, pray with conviction…don’t be fearful.

Outcome: You will overcome all obstacles, and nothing will keep you from advancing toward your goals because you will have the kind of inner fortitude that nothing can defeat.
