July's Astro Tarot
King of Swords This man is clever, and is often a strong leader in a professional career. He’s a great strategist, with charm and ambition, but can exert pressure, too, as he’s impatient to succeed. He can be relied upon to offer calm, logical judgment. An additional meaning is that legal issues need your attention just now. Take a logical approach; this is the time for mental agility rather than emotion.
Advice: Look to the facts before you make a decision.
King of Swords This king is an action man, which makes him an engaging companion and an inspiring leader. Self-motivated, he is entrepreneurial, dynamic, and open-minded. You will know what he is thinking, as his feelings always show. Travel may be important to him, and he is connected to many people with backgrounds different to his own. Expect to find practical solutions to problems, and also see your network of friends and professional contacts grow.
Advice: Explore your passions and look to unconventional people and new places
Ace of Cups This Ace brings you your heart’s desire as you find fulfillment through an artistic pursuit or a new relationship. You may create a ‘baby’ that is your project – a new business, a book, planting a garden or decorating your home. This card reveals pregnancy (the birth of someone of something), motherhood and joy. The Ace, while being a positive card, can also bring emotions that feel overwhelming.
Advice: Open your heart and trust; you need not be overwhelmed by emotion. Just be open to what comes to you.
Page of Cups Imagination A young person, or someone who is young at heart, has much to offer you and others: good company, fun, and friendship.

An additional meaning is a young psychic.
Advice: Enjoy the lighter side of life, and allow yourself time to play and let your imagination run free.
Two of Cups This card predicts love, equality, and a meeting of hearts and minds, which benefits all your relationships, from friendships to romance. It also reveals a commitment or promise, such as an engagement or marriage, or an emotional investment in a shared project.

You can also expect someone close to you to show their love – know that they are trustworthy and dependable.
Advice: Appreciate love and trust in your relationships
Six of Swords It's time to glide into more peaceful, calm waters, so this is a reassuring card if you have suffered upheaval, conflict, or uncertainty recently. The Six also predicts physical journeys over water and, in general, sees you moving on in positive ways; new work may also be on the horizon. An additional meaning is protection, in that you prioritize what’s important to you, and leave behind the people or situations that no longer serve you.
Advice: Go with the flow of life; there's no need to resist change.
