The Sphinx suggests discrete observation. It suggests that you behave like a wise person who knows more than they hear, but who keeps that information to themselves until the time is right.
Because of this Sphinx is associated with the ability to keep secrets, but at the same time manage to wheedle them out of other people. If it appears in today’s reading, secrecy is very important to the successful realisation of your desires.
Another aspect of the Sphinx is that it represents our equality with the other animals, and thus includes the love of animals. It also holds the energy of secrecy, observation and patience. Thus, it’s possible that the whole thing will take a lot longer than you anticipated.
