Four of Wands/The Tower reversed. Oh Kay Then. The Four of Wands (Venus, beauty, allure, relationships, in Aries, “I want,” action oriented, assertive, enthusiastic) is about building enough to become established, about the results of harmony and effort and creativity combined. The foundation that has been created is solid and tangible, and it should allow us to more easily visualize our goals, and if we are lucky, actually see them beginning to manifest in the physical world. The Tower (Fire (hot/separates and dry/shapes, and spontaneous, impulsive, energetic change), Mars (action, spontaneity, aggression, drive), Phe (mouth or speech), and the Path between Hod (which provides analysis and communication) and Netzach (which offers the stimulating factors of emotion and inspiration)) in an upright position tells of a violent or explosive correction in the way things are going. My Tower may be reversed (and appearing two days in a row) and thus telling me that I will be able to hold the middle ground, but I still need to keep in mind today that even the most secure setup can be toppled. My foundations may be strong, but I can’t take anything for granted!
My Thoth card is the Four of Cups. “Luxury” is Crowley’s keyword for this one. The Four of Cups (the Moon, feelings and emotions, illusion, imagination, in Cancer, “I feel,” sensitive, nurturing, tenacious, moody) tells us that too much pleasure, or maybe too much nurturing or overprotectiveness, deadens the senses. Having future goals is a positive thing, but I need to be sure that I don’t focus on what I don’t have but wish to have, to the extent that I miss out on some lovely stuff right here in the present.
My Legacy card is The Moon reversed, flavored by the Eight of Cups reversed. The Moon of the Tarot Major Arcana corresponds with Water (cold/binds and wet/adapts, emotional and sensitive energy that strives to stay the same), Pisces (“I believe,” feeling, suffering, soul growth, duality), Qof (the back of the head), and the Path between Malkuth (the physical world of action and physical, outer reality) and Netzach (the stimulating factors of emotion and inspiration), is about feelings and emotions and instincts and the subconscious. My Moon is reversed, and it could be presenting discomforts, deceptions or disillusions. It is being flavored by the reversed Eight of Cups, which I also threw yesterday. 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 or with spiritual growth. There is a common thread to the images on these two cards: The Moon shows a woman from the back, moon in the sky and water nearby, and the Eight of Cups shows a man from the back, standing in water with the moon in the sky. Plus, both cards are reversed. What am I missing here? Both figures are looking away from the water, so away from feelings and emotions; neither are walking away from anything (because they are reversed). Both cards have to do with truth or perception, and what our perceptions can incite us to do or say.
My 6-digit date number is 4, the number of depth and stability.
My horoscopes: “Your heightened sensitivity could get you in trouble today, Sagittarius. The more you try to pin down a specific answer to something, the more resistance you may encounter. Don't expect a straight answer from anyone or you will be disappointed. People may be flighty or forgetful. Try not to take anything too seriously today.”
And: “Today will be calm and quiet enough to enable you to think about yourself a bit. You might finally have the time to take care of all the little details of daily life, and to get the things done you may have been planning for weeks. This kind of day, believe it or not, opens you up to all kinds of possibilities. Isn't it true that a calm atmosphere helps you to be much more quick and efficient?”
My Shadowscapes Insight is regarding The World. Nice; especially after the other cloudy cards I’ve received today. This card tells of satisfaction, peace of mind, and the quiet that comes with the completion of the process of attainment, or should I say the successful completion.
Hey, how about a Wild Unknown card?? The Daughter of Pentacles. The image on this one is a fawn, covered with spots, ears pricked forward. She is watching and learning, curious and eager to experience the great mystery that is the world around her, yet hesitant, even uneasy at times. But her hesitation does not last for very long, because her curiosity (flavored with gentleness and purity) is more powerful. The delights of the forest await her, and she is eager to begin! My initial feeling upon looking at this image is one of a childlike wonder, and a gentle and hesitant yet difficult to deny urge to explore.
