9/16/14

King of Cups/Six of Wands reversed. The King of Cups (cusp of Libra, “We are,” partnerships, balance, cooperation, and Scorpio, “I desire,” intense, controlling mysterious, obsessive) is the expert on emotions and the subconscious, mainly because of his life experiences.  He is able to be calm, caring and diplomatic, and still get things done by getting others working together in a productive way.  My King is showing me how to turn physical world discomforts and mental puzzles into opportunities for emotional evolution, and he is showing me that sometimes I have to be the grownup and control my own feelings in order to better serve the group. The Six of Wands (Jupiter, expansiveness and growth, justice, fortune, in Leo, “I am,” passionate, dramatic, noble, authoritative) in an upright position expresses the celebration we feel when we have passed some test or successfully met a challenge. Since my card is reversed, the results may not be clear or conclusive just yet, or perhaps my creative abilities are being dampened by some other effect. 

My Thoth cards are the Ten of Swords (“Ruin”) reversed and the Three of Wands (“Virtue”). The Ten of Swords (the Sun, the inner core of a person or situation, in Gemini, “I think,” curious, sociable, dual, talkative) in an upright position tells of the perception that interference, powerlessness and restriction will rule the day.  The traditional image on this one is of a body laying on its stomach, with ten Swords sticking up out of his back, a perfect example of overkill!  Because my card is reversed, I need to really remember that while things may appear bad, they are most lilely not as bad as they seem.  The arrangement of the Swords on the upright card is somewhat top heavy, which makes sense.  A bit of grounding into reality may be appropriate today. The Three of Wands (Sun, the inner core of a person or situation, the deepest self and personal power, in Aries, “I want,” action oriented, pioneering, assertive) is a card of planning ahead that tells of the excitement that comes with good possibilities at hand.  Crowley sees this one as representing primal energy that is beginning to manifest, one of the most fertile cards in the whole deck.  The Thoth version of these two cards are similar on first glance.  They both have an orange background, and they both seem to be expanding outward.  If I perform the grounding into reality requested by my reversed Ten of Swords, I just might be able to tap into all that great juju offered by the Three of Wands. 

My Legacy card is the Ace of Swords reversed, flavored by The High Priestess. The Ace of Swords (Capricorn, “I build,” ambition, caution authority, cunning, Aquarius and Pisces, “I believe,” feeling, duality, soul growth, artistic) tells of the birth of ideas and concepts; it offers the power to analyze that is necessary in order to make good choices, and in order to react correctly to events in our day.  My reversed Ace of Swords is being flavored today by The High Priestess, and that makes perfect sense. The High Priestess (Water; the Moon, feelings and emotions, illusion, imagination; Gimel, the camel who safely crosses Da’ath, the Abyss, and thus, has the secret of life; and the Path between Tiphareth, the hub of the creation process where energies harmonize and focus to illuminate and clarify, and Kether, the source, limitless possibility), is one-half of the Major Arcana representation of the Sacred Feminine, with The Empress being the other half. The High Priestess is the source of the power of The Magician (who is also in my spread today), the feminine version of The Hierophant, and the Keeper of the Mysteries.  She is the Gatekeeper who determines whether I am ready to experience the Mysteries, and she is somewhat removed from everyday life although her mind is receptive.  She is not about mental analysis at all; rather she tells me that in order to access the Mysteries she guards, I must know my inner self completely, and accept the messages of my Inner Voice, even if they defy analysis. 

My 6-digit date number is 4, the number that tells of depth, balance and stability.

My horoscopes:  What are you really feeling, Sagittarius? You're usually the type to think in broad strokes and let your optimism distract you from any deeper emotional processing. However, you have a rare chance to really inhabit the feelings you sometimes avoid today, as the Moon in your intimate eighth house gets a cosmic boost from healing Neptune. Just remember to be kind to yourself, whatever sentiments come up. You're human and can't be the picture of sunshine all the time!

And: “This is one of those days in which you are better able to stand back and look at your emotions from a cerebral perspective. Your freedom-loving nature is not built to deal with heavy emotional baggage and turmoil, so don't bother. This is not your bag, so don't even pick it up. Be especially wary of those who seem to plop it directly in front of you and then expect that you will deal with its unpredictable contents.

Ace of Swords/Death. The Ace of Swords (Capricorn, “I build,” ambition, caution authority, cunning, Aquarius and Pisces, “I believe,” feeling, duality, soul growth, artistic) tells of the birth of ideas and concepts; it offers the power to analyze that is necessary in order to make good choices, and in order to react correctly to events in our day.  What a nice card to throw on a Friday. The Death card of the Major Arcana corresponds with Water (cold/binds and wet/adapts, and sensitive, imaginative energy that strives to stay the same or take the same course), Scorpio, Nun (fish head; liberation), and the Path between Tiphareth (the hub of the creation process where energies harmonize and focus to illuminate and clarify) and Netzach (the stimulating factors of emotion and inspiration), and it tells of natural change that cannot be stopped, and that usually involves the potential to step upward on the evolutionary ladder. Many people fear this card, but Death can be seen as representing natural change through alchemic putrefaction.  The important thing about this change is that I need to embrace it even though I don’t know where it will take me.

My Thoth cards are the Ace of Cups and the Queen of Cups reversed.  Another Ace! The Ace of Cups (Libra, “We are,” partnerships, balance, cooperation, Scorpio, “I desire,” intense, deep, mysterious, obsessive, Sagittarius, “I seek,” philosophic, fun-loving, adventurous, blundering) tells of the potential to experience deep emotions, a connection to my Inner Voice, and a connection to those around me.  Interesting that this potential shows up alongside the reversed Queen of Cups, eh? The Queen of Cups (cusp of Gemini, “I think,” curious, sociable, dual, and Cancer, “I feel,” sensitive, tenacious, nurturing, moody) represents the energies of Water and The High Priestess manifested into the Minor Arcana.  She is comfortable with her own feelings (whatever they are), and she is comfortable dealing with the feelings of others (whether serene or uncomfortable) without losing her own serenity.  She nurtures and encourages the serenity and dreams of others, too.  Perhaps if I handle the potential for deep feelings presented by my Ace, I will turn that Queen right side up.

My Legacy card is Faith/The Hierophant, flavored by the Five of Wands. Faith/The Hierophant corresponds with Earth (cold/binds and dry/shapes), Taurus (“I have,” sensual, cautious, stubborn), Vau (the nail which holds tradition in place), and the Path between Chesed (the place where forms and structures are stabilized and nurtured), and Chokmah (dynamic male energy, the origin of vital force and polarity).  This card is an archetype of Spirit (with The Emperor as archetype of the Sacred Masculine, The Empress as archetype of the Sacred Feminine, and all three representing the supernal triad) that reminds us of the value of tradition, ritual and ceremony, and conforming to the rules and traditions with the aim of presenting the highest good of the group.  There is duty to be found in this card, as well as morality, and a suggestion that tradition should not be accepted blindly; after all, Faith is the manifestation of tradition.  Interesting that this one shows up with Death; religion and death are often connected.  My Faith card is being flavored by the Five of Wands, which is even more interesting. The Five of Wands, which corresponds with Saturn (discipline, responsibility, law and order) in Leo (“I am, passionate, dramatic, egotistical) indicates a struggle caused by annoying cross-purposes.  Of course, this discomfort could be caused by growing pains, and those growing pains may be caused by or supported by my personal traditions.  Should be an interesting day, eh?  Transformation, important traditions, and a bit of discord to keep things interesting.

My 6-digit date number is 8, the number that tells of a conscious and deliberate response to the approach of degeneration of the number 7 in order to maintain for a bit longer the balance of the number 6.

My horoscopes: “You like to fly by the seat of your pants, Archer, and today you could easily jet off on some unbridled adventure. A destabilizing square between expansive Jupiter (your cosmic ruler) in your travel zone and the Moon in grounded Taurus is pulling you in two directions. You're free to follow your heart--as you always do!--but you're advised to consider the consequences of your actions first. A spur-of-the-moment trip to Istanbul could be a blast or a bust, depending on how well you prepare.

And: “Slow down and take a more reserved, sensitive, and calculated approach to things today, especially when it comes to matters involving love and beauty. You will find that there is a greater level of sensuality waiting for you as long as you are willing to open up the doors even wider. Go after the object of your desire, but make sure that your approach happens in a sensitive and disciplined manner.

9/10/14

Two of Swords/Ace of Cups reversed. The Two of Swords (Moon, feelings and emotions, illusion, imagination, in Libra, “We are,” partnerships, balance, cooperation) represents a time of not looking or of shutting out the world.  Yes this can be helpful; taking a mental time-out and disconnecting with the world can help to recharge my battery.  Think of it as a cold reboot.  My “temporary files” will get cleaned out and my system will get de-fragged. The Ace of Cups (Libra, “We are,” partnerships, balance, cooperation, Scorpio, “I desire,” intense, deep, mysterious, obsessive, Sagittarius, “I seek,” philosophic, fun-loving, adventurous, blundering) in an upright position tells of the potential to experience deep emotions, a connection to my Inner Voice, and a connection to those around me.  Because my Ace is reversed, I am being told that not only does my brain need a rest from creativity, but my emotions also need to disconnect from any situation that could create an emotional response. 

My Thoth cards are the Eight of Cups (“Indolence”) reversed and the Four of Cups (“Luxury”). The Eight of Cups (Saturn, discipline, responsibility, limitation, law and order, in Pisces, “I believe,” feeling, duality, suffering, soul growth) in an upright position tells of an ending or a decline or a change of direction, often one associated with emotions, and it offers one possible response to that decline or change: moving on.  Crowley calls this the Hangover Card, but this hangover happens even though the party never occurred. Walking away might not be the answer; no avoiding things. The Four of Cups (the Moon, feelings and emotions, illusion, imagination, in Cancer, “I feel,” sensitive, nurturing, tenacious, moody) reminds us that too much pleasure, or maybe too much nurturing or overprotectiveness, deadens the senses. This is a card that describes what can happen when nothing goes wrong in our lives.  These two cards together have a strong message: don’t walk away, challenge yourself to make things better.

My Legacy card is the Four of Wands reversed, flavored by the Ten of Coins. The Four of Wands (Venus, beauty, allure, relationships, in Aries, “I want,” action oriented, assertive, enthusiastic) in an upright position is about building enough to become established, about the results of harmony and effort and creativity combined.  Even reversed, this card is not terrible; it tells me that the foundation is manifesting but it is not yet strong enough to build upon.  Perhaps the binding agents need to cure a bit longer.  My reversed Four of Wands is being flavored by an auspicious card, the Ten of Coins. The Ten of Coins (Mercury, reason, intelligence, education, communication, in Virgo, “I serve,” practical, analytical, work and service oriented) represents the attainment of physical world wealth and bounty, usually achieved through the implementation of long-term plans, and the attempt to maintain the status quo.  This kind of validates the concept that things just need a bit more time.  However, I can’t let the pause last too long or lethargy will take over, and all those good Coins will turn into a burden rather than a foundation all ready to be used.

My 6-digit date number is 6, the number of vertical and horizontal balance.

My horoscopes: “Your open-mouth-insert-foot M.O. gets cranked up to its maximum settings today. Thanks to a harmonious angle between Jupiter in your bountiful ninth house and the Moon in impulsive Aries, you could blurt out some jaw-dropping proclamations. While you know you never mean to offend—and that's a big part of your charm—others might be left scratching their head and trying to decode your message. Can you focus on being supportive and providing service instead of just speaking your mind? That way you'll (more likely) be forgiven.

And: “Today's planetary configurations are pushing you to get some perspective on both your life and the lives of the people closest to you. You must admit that you have been rather selfish of late. Of course you know that you are not the center of the universe. So why do you sometimes act as though you were? This is a day to make amends to friends and loved ones alike. They will welcome you back with open arms.

9/8/14

Ace of Swords reversed/Six of Wands reversed.  Lots of reversed cards lately.  The Ace of Swords (Capricorn, “I build,” ambition, caution authority, cunning, Aquarius and Pisces, “I believe,” feeling, duality, soul growth, artistic) tells of the birth of ideas and concepts. This Ace in an upright position offers the power to analyze that is necessary in order to make good choices, and in order to react correctly to events in our day.  However, my Ace is reversed, and I may find myself easily distracted from the plans of the day.  I can’t cross things off my list until I (1) start them, and (2) finish them.  The Six of Wands (Jupiter, expansiveness and growth, justice, fortune, in Leo, “I am,” passionate, dramatic, noble, authoritative) in an upright position expresses the celebration we feel when we have passed some test or successfully met a challenge. Since my card is reversed, the results may not be clear or conclusive just yet, possibly because of that reversed Ace of Swords.  Okay, that is a clear message. 

My Thoth cards are the Queen of Cups and the Seven of Disks (“Failure”) reversed.  The Queen of Cups (cusp of Gemini, “I think,” curious, sociable, dual, and Cancer, “I feel,” sensitive, tenacious, nurturing, moody) represents the energies of Water and The High Priestess manifested into the Minor Arcana.  She is comfortable with her own feelings (whatever they are), and she is comfortable dealing with the feelings of others (whether serene or uncomfortable) without losing her own serenity.  She nurtures and encourages the serenity and dreams of others, too.  She is my only upright card today, and I think her energies will be useful.  The Seven of Disks (Saturn, discipline, responsibility, law and order, in Taurus, “I have,” sensual, cautious, stubborn) tells of pauses and choices and assessments. To Crowley, the pause indicated by the Seven of Disks is happening because of sloth and lethargy, and the image on the card is dark and heavy, even stagnant.  Failure can happen due to a lack of success, but it can also happen due to non-performance; the Golden Dawn name for this card in an upright position is the Lord of Success Unfulfilled.  My card is reversed, and that means while my physical focus may not be clear and concise, all is not yet lost.

My Legacy card is the Eight of Cups reversed, flavored by the Six of Swords reversed.  The Eight of Cups (Saturn, discipline, responsibility, limitation, law and order, in Pisces, “I believe,” feeling, duality, suffering, soul growth) in an upright position tells of an ending or a decline or a change of direction, often one associated with emotions, and it offers one possible response to that decline or change: moving on.  Walking away might not be the answer; better that I follow the teachings of my Queen of Cups above, and face my feelings realistically.  Maybe then I will be able to understand how they affect me and the world (and people within that world) around me.  My reversed Eight of Cups is being flavored by another reversed card, the reversed Six of Swords.  The Six of Swords (Mercury, reason, intelligence, education, communication, in Aquarius, “I know,” friendships, the group, cause oriented) in an upright position is about balance, healing, moving towards a better place, and even about learning the science behind things that work (because understanding why they work makes them more effective). I need to concentrate on being aware of the “how” and “why” of any situation.  Yep, today is not so much about acting, as it is understanding what action to take and why I need to take it.  

My 6-digit date number is 4, the number of depth and stability.

My horoscopes: “Thanks to today's Full Moon in Pisces and your fourth house of domesticity, that boho-chic, thrift shop aesthetic isn't cutting it anymore. You could experience a strong urge to turn Chateau Sagittarius into something resembling a soft and nurturing palace. Before the New Moon, which is in two weeks, take strides to fulfill your lunar-inspired nesting fantasies. But before you bring in anything new, do some serious de-cluttering. This is a good time to buy a home—provided you feel an emotional connection.

And: “Today is your day to become a hero. Don't think that just because you may not be dressed in fancy tights and a cape doesn't mean that you can't make an important difference in someone's life today. Step up to the plate even if it is not your turn to be up at bat. True heroes are those who are able to do what needs to be done when it needs to be done regardless of the circumstances.

Okay, I’ve decided to take a chance.  I just signed up for the Daily Om 21-Day Yoga Body course.  I’m going to do my best to at least check out the advice and videos each day (I have a few days this coming weekend where this might be a challenge.  I’m interested to see just how these Yoga sequences work, and whether I can add them to my own practice, or to the classes I teach.

9/7/14

Transparent Oracle Sunday!

25, Landscape: Ocean (West). West is the direction of Water, and thus, of feelings and emotions, relationships of all kinds, cleansing and healing, the wisdom associated with natural endings, and the bubbling up of pure joy.  Oceans are huge and magnificent; they are considered the cradle of life.  They can be calm as glass, but beneath that smooth flat surface lurk powerful predators.  They can be rough and deadly, yet if we travel down a short distance, all is quiet and silent.  The Ocean card is about death and life, about destruction and creation; and amidst the chaos, healing and purification.

8, Guide: Eagle (East). East is the direction of the rising sun, and thus of new beginnings and fresh ideas, as well as knowledge, intellectual ideas and thoughts.  Eagle is considered the King of Birds, and often is seen as a Divine Messenger because he can fly to such amazing heights.  He tells of being able to see into the distance, and of achievements (and associated honors) gotten through courage and focus.  When Eagle is around, courage and perspective and vision will bring great results.

69, DNA/Labyrinth (Within). Within is the direction of the Self, and thus the cards associated with this direction deal with the ways our Self connects to the world and perceives the world, and the Self.  This direction is mostly abstract, and yet is our bridge to the Universe around us.  The DNA/Labyrinth card is a card of self-exploration, and it offers me a chance to become acquainted with myself and to own my personal identity.  Ancient wisdom and modern science linked together; I like that!

I then stacked my cards and created my mandala.  This one was more interesting as I built it.  The image on Ocean is an outer circle of watery waves, similar to how a crab sees the world (360 degree vision); the Eagle card shows three Eagles in the center of the circle; placing Eagle on top of Ocean creates a beautiful visual.  Adding DNA (the image on this one is a long strand of DNA in the shape of a labyrinth) changes everything.  Now, Ocean is closely supporting DNA, and Eagles are difficult to make out.  The message, however, is clear.  Accepting and making use of the flows of energy around me happens through knowledge, wisdom, and perspecive.  Endings and beginnings are not only important, they are connected.  Understanding myself is important; so is understanding the world around me.  The wisdom gained through knowing my own feelings, and the knowledge tained by flying high and truly seeing, are linked together by my self and this life I am living.  Flying high!

Today was part 1 of a three part advanced Yoga training for Cardiac Health.  I love what I’m learning.  We focused on the workings of the heart and vascular system today, and we did some Chair Yoga.  I even learned some new ways to do certain chair poses.  I  can’t wait for the next segment.

9/6/14

Two of Swords reversed/Eight of Cups reversed.  Hmmm . . . don’t shut the mind in and don’t walk away from emotions.  Interesting advice.  The Two of Swords (Moon, feelings and emotions, illusion, imagination, in Libra, “We are,” partnerships, balance, cooperation) in an upright position represents a time of not looking or of shutting out the world.  If the Two was upright, it would be hinting at the value of a “disconnect,” but since it is reversed, the workings of my mind are important today so I should not ignore them, even if they are uncomfortable.  The Eight of Cups (Saturn, discipline, responsibility, limitation, law and order, in Pisces, “I believe,” feeling, duality, suffering, soul growth) in an upright position tells of an ending or a decline or a change of direction, often one associated with emotions, and it offers one possible response to that decline or change: moving on.  Walking away might not be the answer, though; better that I face my feelings, and try to understand how they affect me and the world (and people within that world) around me.

My Thoth cards are the Queen of Wands and the Three of Wands (“Virtue”) reversed. The Queen of Wands (cusp of Pisces, “I believe,” feelings, duality, soul growth, spirituality, and Aries, “I want,” action oriented, assertive, competitive) in an upright position is energetic, adaptable and enthusiastic; she is filled with persistent energy and calm authority at the same time, and because of this she draws others to her.  She is kind of a self-made woman, with her sense of humor intact, a valuable achievement.  Crowley sees this card as representing calm authority, however this Queen does not have patience for those who oppose her.  She may be warning me today not to be too full of myself. The Three of Wands (Sun, the inner core of a person or situation, the deepest self and personal power, in Aries, “I want,” action oriented, pioneering, assertive) is a card of planning ahead that tells of the excitement that comes with good possibilities at hand.  Crowley sees this one as representing primal energy that is beginning to manifest, one of the most fertile cards in the whole deck.  It is reversed, so that creative energy is not available to me, and my Queen of Wands will need to remember that.  I must be realistic before acting today.

My Legacy card is the King of Cups, flavored by The Empress reversed.  Interesting!  The King of Cups (cusp of Libra, “We are,” partnerships, balance, cooperation, and Scorpio, “I desire,” intense, controlling mysterious, obsessive) is the expert on emotions and the subconscious, mainly because of his life experiences.  He is able to be calm, caring and diplomatic, and still get things done by getting others working together in a productive way.  My King could help with that reversed Ace of Cups above, by showing me how to turn physical world discomforts and mental puzzles into opportunities for emotional evolution.  My King is being flavored by The Empress reversed, and in a way, this validates my interpretation of the King.  The Empress (my significator card, which corresponds with Earth (cold/binds and dry/shapes, and stable, material, practical energies that are slow to change), Venus (beauty, allure, pleasure, relationships), the Hebrew letter Daleth (door or womb) and the Path between Binah (female receptive energy and the origin of form and structure) and Chokmah on the Tree of Life (dynamic male energy and the origin of vital force and polarity)) is one half of the Major Arcana representation of the Sacred Feminine (along with The High Priestess), the half that is about creativity, fertility of all kinds, a deep connection to Nature and the nurturing of others, and an enjoyment of the senses. My Empress, who is the mother of form, tells of creative intelligence; she reveals the concepts guarded by The High Priestess, and she encourages me to immerse myself in the manifestations of the physical world.  Because my Empress is reversed, I should gravitate today more toward the authority and discipline of the King, and less toward experiencing the manifestations of the physical world in an inner fashion.  I need to look at everyone around me and the effect I’m having on them!

My 6-digit date number is 2, the number of balance, polarity, and the energy of “distance between.”

My horoscopes: “Does it feel strange that everybody knows your name? You're quite the gregarious one, Sagittarius, often acting on a hunch or befriending someone new in record time. However, as the Moon in your neighborhood zone clashes with freedom-loving Jupiter today, you could want some of your anonymity back! It might be as simple as exploring a new town or even trying new local spots to awaken your inner adventurer again. Break away from the ties that bind a bit and branch out.

And: “Get things out in the open today. If it seems like someone is insulting you, call him or her on it. Letting things fester inside will only result in the destruction of your own self-esteem. You would also be in danger of losing the respect of the people around you. This could very well be one of those situations in which everyone else sees the truth except you. Try not to let this happen. Be bold and assertive and don't let others pull the wool over your eyes.

9/4/14

The Chariot/Six of Swords reversed. The Chariot, which corresponds with Water (cold/binds and wet/adapts, and sensitive, emotional and imaginative energy that likes to stay the same or follow the same course), Cancer (“I feel,” sensitive, tenacious, nurturing, moody), Cheth (the fence), and the Path between Geburah (the place where forms and structure are challenged or affirmed) and Binah (female receptive energy and the origin of form and structure), tells in an upright position of having the control necessary to focus on goals, and to avoid distractions.  My Chariot tells me that today is the day for me to be the driver, because I can control those contrary horses. The Six of Swords (Mercury, reason, intelligence, education, communication, in Aquarius, “I know,” friendships, the group, cause oriented) in an upright position is about balance, healing, moving towards a better place, and even about learning the science behind things that work (because understanding why they work makes them more effective). I probably won’t have trouble acting or reacting today, but I might have trouble being aware of the “how” and “why” of any situation situation.  Careful.

My Thoth cards are the Nine of Disks (“Success”) reversed and the Five of Disks (“Worry”). The Nine of Disks (Venus, beauty, allure, relationships, in Virgo, “I serve,” practical, analytical, work and service oriented) tells of accomplishment through the imposition of discipline.  This card when upright literally purrs with satisfaction, but since it is reversed, and it suggests that my efforts and discipline within the physical world might not be effective.  Maybe following the rules (a tendency of this suit) might not be the best plan; a bit of impulse might be in order. The Five of Disks (Mercury, reason, intelligence, education, skill, communication, in Taurus, “I have,” sensual, cautious, stubborn) tells of some loss or need within the physical world.  This card tells of wandering aimlessly looking for help and not finding it.  Since the image on the Thoth Five of Disks shows an upside-down pentacle, I may have a hint to the trouble.  Spirit is not the main focus, and perhaps it should be.  Success is not just measured by material possessionse.

My Legacy card is the Seven of Cups, flavored by the Page of Wands reversed. The Seven of Cups (Venus, beauty, allure, relationships, in Scorpio, “I desire,” intense, controlling, obsessive, mysterious) represents the distraction, sensory overload and dissipation that can happen when we are presented with too many enticing choices.  We could see this one as being drunk on pleasure, and it offers a version of paralysis that might be damaging for me today.  If it looks too good to be true, it probably is not worth the effort.  My Seven of Cups is being flavored by the reversed Page of Wands. The Page of Wands (Cancer, “I feel,” sensitive, tenacious, nurturing, moody; Leo, “I am,” passionate, dramatic noble egotistical; and Virgo, “I serve,” practical, analytical, work and service oriented) is fun to be around, unless you have a migraine. He is about being open to new experiences and about being enthusiastic about whatever is happening, when he is upright.  He is reversed, and because he is flavoring my Seven of Cups, I do need to be careful today.  After all, pessimism is another form of paralysis. 

My 6-digit date number is 9, the number of completeness of manifestation or effect. 

My horoscopes: “Self-worth issues? You're usually good about expressing your emotions as they pop up, much to the chagrin of certain people you know (hello, #nofilter). However, as the Moon in your second house of values meets up with probing Pluto today, you may finally have the chance to deal with some self-esteem glitches in your Archer system—especially if they pertain to asking for a fair amount of money at your job or business. Getting to the root of it with a therapist or trusted mentor can help a lot.

And: “An unexpected opportunity to take a short trip may present itself to you today. Hop on that boat or train and see where it ends up. If you have no real excuse to take off and travel, make one up. You don't really need one anyway. The point is, it is time to get away from your current surroundings and explore other ways of living. If the time is not right for you to get out and travel, at least make a plan now for a trip later on.
