Queen of Swords/The Hanging Man reversed. The Queen of Swords (cusp of Virgo, “I serve,” practical, sensible, work and service oriented, and Libra, “We are,” partnerships, balance, cooperation, grace) can be considered a Minor Arcana representation of the Justice card, which is about responsibility and the relationship between “cause” and “effect.” This Queen is a pioneering trailblazer with nerves of steel and a good sense of humor. I guess today is a no-nonsense kind of day, but I am also being told that a sense of humor could come in handy. The Hanging Man corresponds with Water (cold/binds and wet/adapts, and emotional, sensitive and imaginative energy that tends to move deep, and attempts to take the same path as in the past), Neptune (inspiration, spirituality, magick, enchantment, dreams, altered states), and the Hebrew letter Mem (water, stability and balance, the reflective quality of thought), and upright it presents the kind of balance that comes to us through surrender, and through deliberately attempting to see things in a different way. My card is reversed, and it tells me that I just might miss some important lesson, perhaps because of ego or unrealistic expectations.
My Thoth cards are The Moon and the Queen of Disks 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. This card may be about falsehood and the Dark Night of Soul, but it is also about magick and mystery. The Queen of Disks (cusp of Sagittarius, “I seek,” philosophic, fun-loving, blundering, and Capricorn, “I build,” ambition, caution, cunning, authoritative) is very good at sustaining the physical world, keeping things dry and cozy and safe and orderly. Crowley sees this Queen in an upright position as striving to manifest pleasurable surroundings, without going overboard. Because my card is reversed, this may not be the end result today.
My Legacy card is the Four of Coins reversed, flavored by The Tower. **gulp** The Four of Coins (the Sun, the inner core of a person or situation or the deepest self, in Capricorn, “I build,” ambition, authority, caution cunning) in an upright position tells of very solid foundations and an awareness of the value of our possessions. My Four of Coins is reversed today, and this lends a bit of suspicion to my awareness. Do I need to protect things? Am I holding onto what is truly valuable? My Four of Coins is being flavored by an uncomfortable card, The Tower. 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. Whatever shakeups are coming today could leave me feeling devastated, and they most likely will have something to do with a physical world foundation that I thought was solid and stable.
My 6-digit date number is 10, representing the end of a cycle, which can be reduced further to 1, the number of position and possibility.
My horoscopes: “Today you're likely to get a nice surprise in a relationship, especially in your private life. Your companions may show their appreciation through some surprising act. In any case, you have a very good chance of finding yourself at the center of things, bowing under the spotlight, and dressed to the nines. Accept the applause that comes your way.”
And: “If you're angry about something, find the best way to communicate it, without hurting someone. While anger is a healthy emotion that signals you when something isn't right for you, how you express it makes all the difference in the outcome of any situation. There is considerable skill in effective communicating. It's not just words but also tone of voice, facial expression and body language. If you're unfamiliar with an "I statement", you may want to read some books on the subject to help you express yourself in a better way.”
