Six of Wands/The Universe reversed. The Six of Wands (Jupiter, expansiveness and growth, justice, fortune, in Leo, “I am,” passionate, dramatic, noble, authoritative) expresses the celebration we feel when we have passed some test or successfully met a challenge. This is about achieving even more than we expected, and you could say the Six of Wands is kind of like a Minor Arcana version of The Universe. The Universe/World, which corresponds with Earth (cold/binds and dry/shapes, and material, stable and practical energy that is slow to change), Saturn (discipline, responsibility, limitations and resistance), Thav (mark or sign), and the Path between Malkuth (the physical world of action and physical, outer reality) and Yesod (the place where patterns and images emerge that may manifest into the physical world) is a card of integration and involvement and understanding, a crystallization of the entire issue at hand. My card is reversed, but if I take into consideration the presence of the Six of Wands, perhaps the synergy of The Universe is approaching from afar. Optimism is good.
My Thoth cards are The Universe reversed (again!) and Lust reversed. Another reversed Universe card! Well, whether upright or reversed, the energies of this card are present today even if I’m not connecting to them. Perhaps this card is presenting itself in a reversed position because the effects of my second Saturn Return are beginning to fade? How is that for some optimism! The Strength card, which Crowley calls “Lust” (Fire, hot/separates and dry/shapes, and spontaneous, impulsive and energetic energy; Leo, “I am,” passionate, dramatic, egotistical; Teth, sieve or basket, digestion; and the Path between Geburah, the place where forms and structures are challenged or affirmed, and Chesed, the place where forms and structures are stabilized and nurtured) is about having the strength and the patience to endure and focus. Crowley sees this card as offering the traditional meanings (courage, passion, inner focus and fortitude), but he also sees it as representing the use of magick or magickal powers. Perhaps my reversed Lust card is telling me what I need and don’t have today that is necessary to turn that Universe card right side up.
My Legacy card is the Nine of Cups, flavored by the Two of Cups reversed. 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. The Legacy Nine of Cups also tells of sensual pleasures, pleasures experienced in the physical world as well as the emotional plane. LOL, nice card to have on the day before Thanksgiving, eh? The Two of Cups (Venus, beauty, allure, relationships, in Cancer, “I feel,” sensitive, family and home oriented, tenacious, moody) in an upright position tells of about love and connections, usually having to do with feelings, relationships and commonalities. My Two of Cups is reversed, and is flavoring my Nine of Cups. Looks like all those pleasures are going to be solitary, rather than shared with another. That might be a good thing, because one good way to prepare for a weekend of being around people is to take a bit of time on my own.
My 6-digit date number is 6, the number of vertical and horizontal balance.
My horoscopes: “Keep your wits about you today. You could be privy to some important information. You might get a good investment lead or a hot tip on the stock market. Even though it seems that your finances are about to take a marked upturn, don't plunge rashly into anything. Haste makes waste!”
And: “Today you may feel a powerful urge to get out and be with your friends, even if nothing definite is planned. There won't be any pressing reason for this, as you shouldn't be feeling particularly lonely. You'll just want to indulge in the light conversation and good-hearted banter that you always share with others. Someone may have some exciting news to relate. Get out of the house, go to your favorite meeting place, and have fun.”
