Three of Rods, Reversed; Nine of Cups; Six of Swords, Reversed
Let’s take a look at our reversed cards first. The Three of Rods represents business, particularly a negotiation or a new undertaking The reversed position indicates that someone you are dealing with has ulterior motives and can’t be trusted—which is pretty much par for the course in any sort of business dealings these days, sad to say. The Six of Swords represents a journey, literal or otherwise; reversed, it indicates a stalemate or delay in solving problems. Looking at these two cards together, we see that it’s time to move very cautiously. I’d actually advise giving up and crawling back under the covers for now, if it weren’t for the central card, the Nine of Cups. This card indicates success, good health, and material prosperity. So now, at the start of a new calendar year, might just be the time to consider making a new start or changing something. Just remember to move slowly, and make sure you have all the facts before coming to any sort of decision.
