Be careful with your reputation, you don’t want to be branded as a snake. Your word must be your bond, full of honesty and infused with integrity. Do what you say, and keep your promises. Your character can be a benefit to your life, if you treat it with respect and reverence.
Say what you mean, and mean what you say.
Or don’t say anything at all.

Twisting the truth to fit your narrative shows a lack of integrity and defines your character as a manipulator. Having the reputation of a snake will impact all your relationships, personal and professional. It may work briefly. But such actions will catch up to you and make it harder to win friends and influence people.
For today and through the weekend, keep an eye out for those who would try to manipulate you in this way. They’re hiding their true feelings behind less than enthusiastic actions or responses. In some cases it maybe hard to tell if their motives are selfish and deceptive, or something more closely related to hurt and worry.
It maybe time to have an honest and open conversation. Listen to your gut feelings. You’ll know if something isn’t right. Don’t be afraid to calmly express how you feel. But be careful you don’t place blame while you’re doing it. “You made me feel” are four words that will put someone on the defensive immediately. Where as, “When this happened, I felt like” is a phrase that takes responsibility for your own emotions.
Love is in the air for those willing to listen to their own feelings and trust their instincts, but who don’t throw caution to the wind. For others it might seem like your ship has come in, but if you ignore those gut feelings, you might miss the warning signs. A little reality now will keep you from an immense amount of hurt or harm later.
Like the other cards this week, the biggest message today and for this weekend is “Pay attention to your gut feelings and heed the warnings from your instincts”. Something isn’t right, but you need to use common sense and compassion to find out if the situation is one of deception, or one of insecurity and misunderstanding. Get involved in your own life. You can ease the burden of life’s ups and downs, and level out the playing field. Even if you alter the grade to a path of rolling hills, your way will be much easier and maybe even more beautiful as you watch the winds of change blow by with peace and serenity too.
