"Through this card, the manifestation of growth is on the horizon. You're the creator, and the seeds that have been planted in the past -- whether they were happiness, comfort, abundance, prosperity, family, children, ideas, or even thoughts -- are now ready to give birth into your world. Be patient as you watch your seeds take root and grow. Nurture them as they become strong and healthy.
Open yourself to the life force of the Universe. This card also represents femininity and Mother Earth, who is calling to you. The arms of her beauty are reaching out; she wants to embrace you on her seashores, mountains, forests, and gardens -- go to her and meet her halfway. Acknowledge that the same energy that makes up the heavens, earth, plants, animals, and mineral kingdom is also part of you. Start nurturing yourself, and infuse your soul with love and compassion. Soon others will see and feel your devotion.
As you interact with others around you now, or even if you're in the midst of solving a problem, use gentle care and kindness as you handle such situations. This isn't a time for you to be inconsiderate, possessive, domineering, forceful, or pushy. Act from the loving space of your heart center. The benevolent energy that resides there wil assist you in making sacrifices in order to care for and help others, as well as yourself.
