For the 3rd day in a row all 3 cards in the daily spread are reversed. Much is hidden and things may not be what they appear to be on the surface. The 9 of Pentacles reversed shows us a woman preoccupied with the accumulation of money or property yet not able to enjoy her accomplishments. Satisfaction eludes her, she may feel trapped by circumstances and alone in her suffering. Upright this card represents personal integrity, financial independence, and enjoyment of the material benefits one has earned honestly. However, the reversal symbolizes fear of dependence, lack of freedom, selfishness, deceptions, and business deals gone sour with a lack of profit or dwindling returns. The 2 of Pentacles reversed represents dropping the ball, too many responsibilities to juggle, losing balance, struggles at work, being overwhelmed by paperwork, and playing the fool pretending to the world that nothing is wrong.
The Queen of Swords reversed can represent an adult woman directly affecting the situation you find yourself in today. She may be an air sign; a Libra, Gemini or Aquarius. Traditionally, this Queen is seen as the widow or older woman who has suffered and gained wisdom from her experiences of grief. Additionally, she is the ice Queen that doesn’t let emotional considerations come before rational analysis. When reversed this shows me that she’s got something to hide and may be vain and self-centered with deceitful intentions. She’s willing to do anything to win and get her own way. She’ll steal your joy today if you let her. On the other hand, if this Queen represents how you’re feeling or acting, I see you hiding yourself away from others; lonely and worried about possessions, property or investments unable to go out and experience any joy despite the nice weather on this Holiday weekend. Do yourself a favor and stop over-analyzing whatever is going on. You need to get your mind off your worries, so you can go out and join in activities that stimulate fun and laughter today.
