In the past position, we have the 5 of Fire (5 of Wands), indicating drama, conflicting interests, and feeling stuck in the middle. Mercury has gone direct today (yay!), but was retrograde for a few weeks, making communication difficult and plans go awry. It also brings up people/patterns from the past. All of this can leave you feeling like you've been put through the wringer. However, it does all serve a purpose. There are lessons to review.
In the present position, we have Balance (Temperence)- a major arcana card that advices us to work with others in cooperation, to take time to contemplate and integrate the information we have collected, and to wait before forging ahead. This calls for rest, and just as the name of the card suggests, balancing one's thoughts, emotions, and needs along with those of others. Your children, spouse, and family (including a chosen or work family) may have needs. Make sure that everyone, yourself included, gets what she/he needs. Archangel Zadkiel is on this card to remind us of our Divine heritage; that we have a calling (or 2, or…) in this life, but are also made in the Creators image and are worthy of care and attention. You have a unique and special role to fulfill and the world would not be the same without you.
In the future position, we have The Dreamer. This card represents the beginning of a journey; one that requires a leap of faith, knowing you are fully supported along that journey. Though you may be traveling for the holiday this weekend (for those in the US, it is Independence Day on the 4th), this journey is more of a spiritual one, the beginning of a new adventure or chapter in your life. Archangel Metatron is the Archangel who watches over children and in this case, the inner child who is starting fresh. The unicorn on the card represents purity, innocence, and wisdom. Though it's a venture into the unknown, you carry with you lessons from the past.
