Using the beautiful Druid Craft deck I asked for guidance for the month of May.
2 3 1
Main gift or opportunity this month. Ace of Swords.
Main challenge this month.
Queen of Swords.
At first glance I would say that May is going to be active and volatile.
Next I would add that there is potential for growth and success, but it will require change and letting go of something.
This May I have the gift of clarity in thoughts and in communication. It is therefore a great time to assert my self and my vision and to clarify any misunderstanding. Writing and advertising is more effective than usual.
The main challenge is represented by the Sun, one of the most positive cards in the deck.
The Sun, Major Arcana 19 . 1+9 = 10 1+0= 1
So we have a one of Air as gift and a one of fire as the challenge.
They are both active and indicative of new beginnings, but the one of the Sun comes through a 10 indicating the end of a cycle. Also, the Ace of sword is about clear detached thinking.
The one of Fire is full of enthusiasm and passion.
The challenge this May could come from success and fast growth which will require adjustments and letting go of something I have outgrown but that I like.
This month may be intense, with lots going on and with some experience out of my comfort zone.
Something else that strikes me is how young, bright, warm and naive the child on the horse looks. Even more when compared to the sword coming out of the water and the stiff queen of swords. She is turned away from him.
The advice to me is to act like the Queen of Swords would. This may mean rising above my emotions . The child in the Sun card is an idealist, but the Queen of air lives in the real world. She is fair and honest, but she is not soft. She will do what she knows is best and practical.
One final thought. This month I may be able to get an important point across with one of my kids. The challenge would be to see the disappointment in his or her eyes, but the advice would be to do it anyway. I guess some kind of sad but important and fair reality check.
