Going Deeper

This card indicates a new way of thinking and typically appears when mental clarity is about to be received. It is not so much a card of action but the moment everything becomes clear. You know what you are doing and what you want to do next. If your head has been clouded this card says don't worry about it because things are about to change. It's a decisive card and has a connection to living your truth because it has the power to cut through denial.


Astro Insight

The air signs Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. The beginning of a new way of thinking.


Examples With Other Cards

With The Fool: Insight that comes from out of nowhere. This is not an instinct but a thought that comes into your head, somebody's switched the light on in there. With The Tower: similar to The Fool but the thoughts could come as a consequence of direct action. It's a great card to follow the Seven or Eight of Swords as it indicates being cut free from self-imposed mental constraints. In connection with business and work, if it shows up with the Discs, it can be ideas relating to making money.
