Clouds, again, are the first symbol on this card that capture my attention, especially the beautiful colours of orange and yellow.
Again, clouds represent higher thinking and in this context we're connected this with spritual growth (orange) and self-belief, optimism, and positivity (yellow). In the previous card we were being encouraged to create an angelic connection and trust in Divine gudiance. Now we're taking this evern further. Not only have we already established an angelic connection, but now the angels are spurring us on to grow spiritual, take that connection to a new and higher level.
Linked in this with spiritual growth comes positivity, optimism and self-belief. When you trust that there is something bigger than you guiding you, then you can take action with passion, you grow in your own self-belief and life, in general, takes on a much more optimistic and positive hue.
In the bottom right corner are little flowers beginning to bloom. When we see flowers we are being asked to express our feelings. It feels to me that these flowers are young and just blooming implying our ability to express our true feelings honestly and openly is something we may not be accustomed to doing but you need to put yourself first, before anyone else. And, in doing so, you need to express your feelings openly and honestly. Perhaps there's a little healing (green) that needs to take place in order for you to learn how to express your feelings.
The final symbol I want to touch on is the knight on his horse carrying his colourful banner. There are times in our lives when we may need to step forth into battle. And as one who is carrying a banner, this knight may be on the front line, leading the army forwards.
When we step into battle, we're stepping into the unknown. We can't foretell the outcome. It's scary and it's not easy, and it's right and honourable to recognise those emotions. But you must not let them stop you from stepping forward into battle. In spite of your hesitation and fear, you take action with passion. Gather your inner resources, carry your banner of truth, sit tall and strong, and move forward fearlessly. Now is not the time to be timid as that will not serve you in battle. You may need to take risks because by always playing safe, opportunities may pass you by.
And as the one who leads others into battle, you're setting the example and others will follow your lead. So be truthful, be honest and don't let fear get in your way. Keep striding forward. You can only achieve when you have faith that you will win. It takes courage and bravery to go forward into battle when you cannot see the outcome. Don't allow yourself to be limited by the beliefs of those around you or your own personal doubts.
