This week’s reading includes the card “The Sage” which represents wisdom, hidden knowledge, retreat, and patience.

Here we see wisdom and deep inner understanding. One of the keys to wisdom is to organize, integrate, and simplify one’s thoughts. Complexity often leads to confusion, simplicity is to be valued.  The Sage signifies mental discipline informed by balanced learning and compassion. Tradition is valued but appropriate change is accepted.

The Sage knows when to let go and when to move on. He knows when to retreat and think things over. He compassionately and wisely shares his knowledge with others, teaching by example. The scales of justice are balanced in the Sage’s hands.

Deep consideration and refined judgement may need to be applied with compassion and mercy.

The Sage reminds you to look within. You know more than you are giving yourself credit for.

Deep internal wisdom and knowledge should not be overlooked.
