Soul Cards Tarot by Kristine Fredheim

The cards for this month indicate change that may be coming via endings and new opportunities. It’s time for a freshening of energy and for building new creations. June, as the sixth month of the year, is a time of balancing and harmony—energies that align with the number six. Endings, change, and new beginnings are arriving to bring greater stability and improved ways of living, being, doing, and thinking. New approaches and ideas may make themselves known to us this week, and we are guided to flow with the energies that feel best to us, as that is the stream where we will find our truest alignment.

Q1: The June energy: Strength

This card says we have what it takes to succeed. Strength can arrive like a pat on the back, congratulating us for getting to where we are now. This card can also appear as encouragement reminding us of our ability to thrive, succeed, and rise above, and it can arrive when we may need to call on that strength, the strength we have built up ourselves through our lived and emotional experiences. The Strength card is associated with the number eight, which is the infinity symbol turned on its side and a reminder of our eternal nature. 

As infinite, divine beings, we are always only ever at one point on a timeline that goes onward forever. We are always growing, expanding, and moving forward, and our power—our strength—is in every now moment. We can recalibrate our vibration anew at any time by remembering that our power is in the now and stopping to ask ourselves: Where am I now vibrationally? Where do I want to be? What can I do to improve my experience right now? Finding our inner strength, that deep reservoir within of calm and alignment with our truth, our divine nature, allows us to move forward from a place of confidence and stability.

Q2: Week 1: The Wheel of Fortune

Traditionally, this card signals good fortune and positive turns of events. Something welcome and much anticipated may be manifesting or evolving in a significant way. Fresh opportunities and positive new connections could be coming about this week. Things could be turning around in a favorable way. With the revolution of the wheel comes the closure of a cycle, which could make itself known now or may be developing unseen in the nonphysical. The Wheel of Fortune is associated with the number ten, which signifies completion.

Q3: Week 2: Ace of Pentacles

Ones herald new beginnings, manifestations, and opportunities. The Ace is a fitting card to receive on the heels of last week’s ten. Something new is making itself known and could be associated with a new cycle. The suit of Pentacles is connected with earthly, conscious, physical manifestations, outcomes, experiences, relationships, and situations. Pentacles especially align with abundance, prosperity, and material possessions, including money and other resources. They are also commonly associated with a means of earning income, such as a business or career. New pathways are being created that have the potential to lead us in new directions.

Q4: Week 3: Death

Something is ending. With the cards of the previous two weeks, The Wheel of Fortune brought something energetically to a close, making room for what the Ace of Pentacles ushered in. This progression of events has allowed something to finally and completely make its transition out of our experience. We may need to do what is needed this week to finally let go of whatever has left. If what has exited is not readily apparent, taking time to breathe deeply, quiet the mind, and spend time in nature can help us to release any energies that it is healthy for us to release. This clearing makes room for the new to fully enter and integrate vibrationally into our experience.

Q5: Week 4: Queen of Swords

The Queen of Swords urges us to cut through the noise and clear out what doesn’t belong, what doesn’t serve, and what doesn’t matter. This can include anything from the past we’re still holding onto, whether emotions, energies, or situations that it’s time to move on from. She urges us to get clear on where we want to go, strengthen our focus, and trust that we have what it takes to succeed in our chosen path. 

This card can also encourage us to make changes to our lifestyle or habits that aren’t serving us in order to clear the way for a new, better path. With the changes indicated by the previous weeks, this queen could be urging us to do what it takes to find stability in the new path we are walking. We could do this through using our mental focus and inner strength to create something amazing and transform the new into something that will last and that will serve us well for a long while to come.

Q6: Overall guidance for June: Page of Swords

The cards of this month indicate change, especially endings and new beginnings. Like the Page of Swords, we may be using our wits, skill, knowledge, and intellect to navigate the new. We may be finding new ways of doing things, testing out methods, honing our abilities, and discovering new processes through trial and error. 

Ultimately, the suit of Swords, which is present this month with the Queen of Swords and with this page, is a suit of the mind and the intellect. Where the Queen is skilled at figuring things out and has a lifetime of experience as a problem-solver, the page arrives to remind us that we all start somewhere. Trusting ourselves and building confidence may be the name of the game now, especially as we are finding our footing on new paths.
