Page of Pentacles/Two of Cups. The Page of Pentacles (Aries, “I want,” assertive, action oriented, Taurus, “I have,” sensual, cautious, stubborn, and Gemini, “I think,” curious, sociable, dual) is down-to-earth and responsible, and a listener and a learner. The Page of Pentacles loves to learn new things and have new experiences, but he also loves to also be a catalyst for change in the physical world, change for everyone. Today is a good day for me to buckle down and get some things on my To-Do list accomplished. I should make certain that I have some fun too; all work and no play makes me a dull person, after all. The Two of Cups (Venus, beauty, allure, relationships, in Cancer, “I feel,” sensitive, family and home oriented, tenacious, moody) tells of about love and connections, usually having to do with feelings, relationships and commonalities, and a recognition or acknowledgement that a bond is beginning to happen, or is beginning to be restored after forgiveness is offered and received. This card can be considere the Minor Arcana version of The Lovers, and it tells of entwining energies and friendships or alliances with emotional components. These two cards have an innocence about them that is comfy.
My Thoth cards are The Moon and the Ace 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. This card tells of falsehood and illusion and the Dark Night of Soul, and about magick and mystery; they are also difficult to pin down and define. There could be a warning here; nothing is as it seems, and an uncomfortable change could be on the way. The Ace of Cups (Libra, “We are,” partnerships, balance, cooperation, Scorpio, “I desire,” intense, deep, mysterious, obsessive, Sagittarius, “I seek,” philosophic, fun-loving, adventurous, blundering) in an upright position tells of the potential to experience deep emotions, a connection to my Inner Voice, and a connection to those around me. The card is reversed, however, and these deep emotions just might not serve me well. Combined with The Moon, there is too much Water here.
My Legacy card is the Four of Swords reversed, flavored by the Three of Swords. Eeep! And things were going so well. The Four of Swords (Jupiter, expansiveness and growth, justice, fortune, in Libra, “We are,” partnerships, balance, cooperation) in an upright position can represent a pause or truce or mutual deterrent, or a time of silence and isolation used to prepare for challenges to come. The card is reversed, and thus it tells of the resuming of some activity after a pause, and perhaps a sense of ease or calm. My reversed Four of Swords is being flavored by a rather uncomfortable Swords card, the Three of Swords. The Three of Swords (Saturn, discipline, responsibility, limitations and resistance, in Libra, “We are,” partnerships, balance, cooperation), my least favorite card in the entire deck, usually indicates the possibility that logic, rationalizing and the intellect could end up causing harm if they are not used with balance and compassion. I need to remember that this card does not bring uncomfortable emotions, but rather it brings analysis gone bad. Looks like the ease or calm being brought by the reversed Four of Swords might not be a reality. Oh well, forewarned is forearmed.
My 6-digit date number is 7, the number that tells of the pause that occurs as growth slows and degeneration approaches, usually requiring a choice of some kind.
My horoscopes: “It’s likely that you’re feeling ready for a change, Sagittarius. It isn’t that you’re dissatisfied with your job or environment, rather that your mind is hungry for new challenges. You may be able to satisfy this hunger by taking on more responsibility at work or signing up to attend some evening classes after work. Any new and different activity will give your mind the stimulation it craves”
And: “A new and highly compelling interest may have captured your imagination. You might find it difficult to think of much else, and so it might be a good idea to try to find the most beneficial ways to pursue this subject. Your abilities for in-depth study are enhanced by intuition, so reading could well prove especially beneficial right now. Classes and workshops could also give you assistance as well as information. Find what works best for you!”
