Five of Swords/Ace of Wands. The Five of Swords (Venus, beauty, allure, relationships, pleasure, in Aquarius, “I know,” friendships, cause-oriented, the group, aloof) shows what happens when we insist that our way is right, or when we impose our needs or wants onto a situation. This could be telling of overwhelming opposition, or being made to suffer the sins of others. The Llewellyn Welsh Five of Swords also tells of a loss of blood; interesting. The Ace of Wands (Leo, “I am,” passionate, dramatic, egotistical, Virgo, “I serve,” practical, analytical, sensible, orderly) tells of the initial emanation of enthusiasm or inspiration that could very well energize an entire process or project. This is inspiration that could lead to manifestation! This pure Fiery energy can be unpredictable, but it certainly means that something will be manifesting soon. Have faith and look ahead!
My Thoth cards are the Eight of Cups (“Indolence”) and the Four of Disks (“Power”) reversed. The Eight of Cups (Saturn, discipline, responsibility, limitation, law and order, in Pisces, “I believe,” feeling, duality, suffering, soul growth) 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. Uncle Al sees this one as the “hangover card,” sometimes having the hangover without having the party. If there isn’t enthusiasm, it would be best to walk away. The Four of Disks (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. In the Thoth Tarot, this card tells of the power that is inherent in the Law; not aggressive but rather, able to negotiate. Since my card is reversed, authority is not to be aspired to, and negotiations may not be fruitful. Perhaps that Eight of Cups may have the right idea.
My Legacy card is The Emperor, flavored by the Six of Cups reversed. The Emperor corresponds with Fire (hot/separates and dry/shapes, and spontaneous, impulsive, energetic change), Aries (“I want,” action oriented, assertive, competitive) and the Hebrew letter Heh (window, illumination), and in an upright position represents confidence, authority, and the archetype of the Father. The Emperor instills balance, form and structure onto the fertility and creations of The Empress, and those things are important today. My Emperor is being flavored by the reversed Six of Cups. The Six of Cups (Sun, the inner core of a person or situation in Scorpio, “I desire,” intense, compulsive, deep, obsessive) is a card of innocence, emotional balance and harmony, of simple joy that begets even more simple joy by infecting all that is around us at this moment. In an upright position, this is a card filled with harmony and an awareness of blessings, but my Six of Cups is reversed. In a way, this reversed Six of Cups validates the focus of The Emperor; after all, the Six of Cups is an inwardly focused card, while The Emperor is focused on the world around him.
My 6-digit date number is 9, the number of completeness of manifestation or effect.
My horoscopes: “You may find yourself staring at a blank page for what seems like hours on end while you try to get down on paper what you really want to say, Sagittarius. Perhaps your motivation is flagging. Your mind is soaring in the clouds today and it may be hard for it to keep on task. However, once you start the act of writing or whatever job you need to finish, things seem to flow to completion on their own.”
And: “You may suddenly feel yourself burdened with a heaviness that you just don't understand. Take note that this could be a reaction from grief or anger that you have stuffed inside and neatly covered up by your fun loving, jovial attitude. Make sure you get these feelings out before they get the better of you. Honest communication is the best way to relieve the emotional weight you feel.”
