The energy of this week is best summed up in this quote:
“An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backwards. If you feel like life is dragging you back with difficulties, it could be about to launch you forward.”Unknown (adapted by Kelly Tan)
I had to tweak the original quote because it was a bit unrealistic, to be honest: it promises that “Life is launching you towards greater things” if your life is looking drab at the moment.
Ohhh, honey –
no spiritual bullshit here Yes and No.
Yes if you’ve been doing what’s right, working on yourself, and raising your vibrations with a pure heart. No if your poor choices and crappy misdeeds were what got your life in a bad spot in the first place.
For many of us, Life and the Universe will eventually launch us forward after weeks and months of dragging us back. Where we’ll be launched – either up towards the stars or down into a flaming dumpster – depends on us, our choices, our thoughts and actions. Our karma.
This is how karma works: we are both the arrow as well as, to some extent, the archer. We can’t control the wind factor. We don’t know when exactly the string might break. But we can choose the right targets, time ourselves wisely, take aim – and fire.
What we do know, and what we can control, we do so to the best of our ability. With focus and purity, we can and will fly forward to achieve our dreams.
This week, though, we’re being pulled back. Three planetary giants follow Pluto’s lead (Pluto went retrograde on 25 April) and retrograde:
- 11 May: Saturn retrogrades from Aquarius into Capricorn. This lasts about four months. Review your karma objectively and take responsibility for your choices – both as an individual and as a member of a greater collective.
- 13 May: Venus retrogrades in Gemini. This lasts about six weeks. Watch out for insecurities over relationships and/or issues with finances. There’s a chance of meeting a soul mate during this period, but don’t make it official until the retrograde ends.
- 14 May: Jupiter retrogrades in Capricorn. This lasts about four months. This will test your ability and determination to manifest your desired outcomes. Those who persevere with humility and gratitude will be greatly blessed.
Let’s get to the reading stat!
LEFT: TEN OF CUPS. As the first card in the spread and the card that anchors the theme for the reading, the Ten of Cups is an awesome way to start the ball rolling. This card indicates deep emotional and spiritual fulfilment, and bodes well for the reconciliation of estranged relationships. This card can also indicate the happy completion of one cycle in your life, and is a good omen that the next cycle will be just as successful.
MIDDLE: THREE OF CUPS. The positive vibes keep flowing with the Three of Cups, representing a cause for celebration and/or the affirmation of supportive and loving relationships (familial, platonic and/or romantic). Keep the good folks near you, even at a time like this where lockdowns are only beginning to lift in some places. Reach out. (Re)connect. There is much to be thankful for.
RIGHT: THE EMPEROR. This card appeared two weeks ago, reversed, in a previous weekly reading – and now he’s back upright! The Emperor is a reminder to stay in your power, claim your authority, and take responsibility for yourself (and others where appropriate).
Numerologically, The Emperor is Major Arcanum Four, and is also the Tarot card whose number resonates with the energies of the year 2020 (2+0+2+0=4). This card could be a reminder to us that in 2020, the Universe isn’t playing. Either we buck up and get our act together, standing firm in our personal power and unshakeable even in tough times – or we fall, clattering, to the ground… misaligned and wasted arrows.
GODDESS GUAN YIN DIVINATION
LOT NUMBER: 95
Be determined and diligent every day,
Not allowing distractions to tempt you;
The one who rises at daybreak with the rooster’s crow
Will receive news of fame and fortune.
(Trans Tan Kelly)
Peeps on lockdown, stay-home notice, quarantine, circuit breakers, whatever you call ’em! This week’s divination lot encourages us to maintain a consistent standard of excellence in our hard work. This lot states: 志气功名之象。凡事守常大吉也。”Work hard to fulfil your ambitions and never give up. Keep up the good work and all will turn out very well.”
(I’m having a good laugh at the third line of the poem because I’m pretty sure lots of people are waking up later nowadays, myself included.)
But some things in life don’t change – especially the formula for success. Be of good cheer, my darlings: the Goddess is watching over you, and She wants you to achieve your soul’s purpose and life goals.
So do your part, both as archer and as arrow. The great and wondrous Goddess – She makes the winds of blessing blow, and She knows when our bow strings will finally break.
She knows all – and still loves us, because of (and in spite of) what She knows.
Do your best, and trust the Goddess.
Have a great week ahead.

从数字学来看，皇帝是大阿卡纳组里的4号牌，这同时也对应了2020年 (2+0+2+0=4) 的能量。这张牌也可提醒着我们，在2020年里宇宙可是非常认真的。如果我们自身不付出努力并且在艰难时期守住自己的力量和立场，那么就只有沦落到溃散一地的地步。
