Shinjini Mehrotra - Sun, Page of Swords, 2 of Cups, 9 of Swords and Empress
Sun: The child represents innocence, optimism, and joy - all the best qualities of the sun. The sun is warm and the sunflowers are blooming, but the slightly withered sunflower on the edge reminds you of the shadow side of this card - over-optimism and burnout.
Page of Swords: The young woman on the card represents the learner. This is a person who is filled with dreams, ideas, and plans; is starting to discover their own knowledge and wisdom rather than blindly following the rules. When you're just starting on on the learning path, however, you can become defensive (wanting to protect ideas) or offensive (arguing for the sake of arguing).
2 of Cups: The 2 of Cups represents love, union and marriage. It's also a card of new beginnings - a new partnership, new roles, new ways of teaming up and interacting with people. If you aren't in a romantic relationship or aren't focusing on romance, use the analogy of a marriage to determine what this card could mean for you.
9 of Swords: The 9 of Swords represents stress, overthinking the future, fear and frustration. Your thoughts are keeping you hemmed in and anxious. If you can break the cycle, you can walk away from here stronger.
Empress: The Empress embodies the feminine archetype - creativity, nurturing, fertility, abundance, wisdom. She's secure with her place in the world and knows how to enjoy the finer things in life. When this card comes up in a reading, see how you can bring more feminine energy into your life - pursue a passion project, make a spa date, or offer some wisdom or comfort to a loved one.
