This month, I felt the need to pull more of the “Words of Truth” cards in pairs of two, the first one showing the action and the second one explaining the pattern in more depth, as follows:

There is Guidance for the Future.

A Sacrifice is required to find Mastery.

The disillusionment of a Fantasy Bond will result in Anger.

Those who felt the Support they believed was there will feel Abandoned.

I see this all as a good thing. However, it will depend on your point of view.

The Hermit is asking you to go deep. Only then will he lend insight into the potential challenges that may arise this month. The pot is getting stirred. Movement is happening and it is all part of some Divine Plan. You have a part to play. The dice are in your hand. Take a risk and roll those dice, so that you can enter into a greater game of consciousness and awakened awareness.

There is a lot of support from the ancestors this month, as you feel into this vast, mysterious unknown that is gathering momentum. You recognize how much you have changed. Something is very different. And from that place of realization, a certain calm cuts through the distortions and chaos. You may not know where you are going but you know that you are on the move. And somehow, that is enough.

It’s time to trust the rebel within. Trust those in the external world who are leaning into previously taboo and untouchable boundaries. Voices are rising up, calling us out of selfish complacency and into affirmative action. To grow, we may have to sacrifice our most cherished  beliefs. Mastery is not given; it is earned.

In the future, a true guide will have clarity regarding what is essential for the greater good of all. America was to be the North Star that would direct fellow travelers to safety and possibility. But many in our country feel abandoned by the establishment and those in power. However, it was a quest for freedom that made our ancestors leap into the unknown by journeying to this country. This month our ancestors are calling out to remind us that the sacrifices they made were not in vain and the sacrifices required now will also not be in vain.

The best types of compromise come when one comes from a position of respect and self-respect. Rebels feel strong and determined that the choices they make are for something greater than themselves. The rebel that beats in your heart remembers. Your soul remembers.

A great world and a great country come from many people choosing to work together, as one, in harmony, to find solutions that work for all. That is who we are and that “fire” is what is arising this month. The weather is getting hot and bothered intentionally to make us uncomfortable enough to rebel against that which is rotten. It’s a month that illuminates much; opens doors that were closed; enables those who refused to hear, to listen; and will make it clear that the people are taking back the power.
