The Tower/Page of Cups reversed. Hmmm . . . The Tower has been showing up lately. 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)) is one of the Major Arcana cards that talks of adjustments. This one tells of a violent or explosive correction in the way things are going that usually happens after more gentle corrections don’t bring the needed result. This card can also represent breakthrough as well as breakdown, and the destruction of old values is not a bad thing! The Page of Cups corresponds to Libra (“we are,” partnerships, balance, cooperation), Scorpio (“I desire,” intensity compulsion, mystery) and Sagittarius (“I seek,” philosophic, adventurous, blundering) and is a card of soft and tender energies and of getting fulfillment through connections to others, and through innocent and simple joys. My Page is reversed, and perhaps today I need to be a bit more of a grownup. Especially with that Tower hanging around!
My Thoth cards are the Nine of Cups (“Happiness”) and Judgement. Another Cups card, and Judgement has been showing up lately, too. The Nine of Cups (Jupiter, expansiveness and growth, justice, fortune, in Pisces, “I believe,” feelings, duality, suffering, soul growth) is about emotional satisfaction and the ability to find pleasure in feelings and emotions, and in our expectations for the day. Crowley sees this card as a good luck card, and indicating that there is a good possibility the future will be as good as the present. Judgement corresponds with Fire (hot/separates and dry/shapes, and spontaneous, impulsive and energetic change), Pluto (power, metamorphosis, cycles of dying and becoming), Shin (fang), and the Path between Malkuth (the physical world of action and physical, outer reality) and Hod (provides analysis and communication) represents an opportunity to tally up and pay the bill so we can have a fresh start. Some type of resolution is attempting to make itself known to me these days, either dealing with the past or the future. Today at least, I think this resolution is a good thing.
My Legacy card is the Knight of Swords reversed, flavored by the Page of Wands reversed. The Knight of Swords (the cusp of Taurus, “I have,” sensual, stubborn, cautious, and Gemini, “I think,” curious, talkative, dual, intelligent) is outspoken, assured, alert, and logical, as well as rude, domineering, critical and sarcastic. His daring and courage are impressive, but he can also be disruptive, too, and since he is reversed today, I had better keep my eye out for this kind of disruption. The Legacy of the Divine Knight of Swords is said to be similar to a tornado: lots of focused effects, yet the path of a tornado is erratic and not easy to predict. Enthusiasm could turn into disruption today. 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) in an upright position is fun to be around, unless you have a migraine. The upright Llewellyn Welsh Page of Wands brings an important message: a positive and exciting phase has arrived and it is time to enjoy this phase. My Page is reversed, though, and flavoring my reversed Knight of Swords, validating the possibility for disruption or the scattering of energies today.
My 6-digit date number is 9, the number that tells of the completeness of manifestation or effect.
My horoscopes: “A letter or other communication serves as a sort of wake-up call today. A long-term goal is finally going to be reached. Your ambition should take on a new dimension, possibly going for a second career either in addition to or instead of the one you have. You might not be sure where you want to take it, but it's worth pursuing.”
And: “Love is not something that is going to happen spontaneously at this time. Don't sit around waiting for someone to come down with a magic wand and instantly make everything better. Love and relationships with close friends and family are things that you are going to need to work for. Keep in mind that this work doesn't necessarily need to be tiring or gruesome, but it is a form of effort on your part.”
