Expand your awareness and understanding through education.

You may already have embarked on new studies or an internship—or be thinking about doing so. Getting this card is a sign to move forward with intellectual and experiential growth! Be prepared to listen, watch, observe and take notes. Focus and concentration are like yoga for the intellect. The more we practice learning, the more efficiently we grow. The more we learn, the more we realize there is to be discovered and known. Education is empowering and humbling at the same time.

Notice the planet Mercury right behind the girl’s head. Yes, it’s the same Mercury that goes into retrograde three times a year! Mercury is the planet of knowledge and communication, and its retrograde is the chance for us to review the conclusions we’ve made about life—review and if necessary, revise. Our minds begin as empty slates. As we grown, certain ideas get etched in. Mercury wants us to have a chance to rethink and revise our assumptions, conclusions, and attitudes—and keep growing forward.

The other planet that appears in the upper left is Saturn, the taskmaster of hard work and the limitations of time and human ability. Use this chance to learn what you can—while you can!

Reversed Meaning

If this card appears upside-down, you may be resisting delving deeper into a subject you love. To see how to get around what’s holding you back, say a small prayer and pull another card.
