King of Cups reversed/Four of Wands. The King of Cups (cusp of Libra, “We are,” partnerships, balance, cooperation, and Scorpio, “I desire,” intense, controlling mysterious, obsessive) is the expert on emotions and the subconscious, mainly because of his life experiences. When upright, he is able to be calm, caring and diplomatic, and still get things done by getting others working together in a productive way. But my King is reversed, and emotions and feelings might not be useful to me today, particularly the emotions and feelings of others. The Four of Wands (Venus, beauty, allure, relationships, in Aries, “I want,” action oriented, assertive, enthusiastic) is about building enough to become established, about the results of harmony and effort and creativity combined. This card has good vibes; we have Fire and we have a stable foundation, a great platform for creativity. No useful Watery energy but look out for that Fire! Something good might be approaching.
My Thoth cards are the Two of Wands (“Dominion”) and the Two of Swords (“Peace”) reversed. The Two of Wands (Mars, action, spontaneity, aggression, drive, in Aries, “I want,” action oriented, pioneering, assertive, enthusiastic) tells of power, influence and authority, and the implementation of the Will. This card presents an immature version of the Four of Wands above, and again I’m being reminded in the power to be had from owning an event or idea. The Two of Swords (Moon, feelings and emotions, illusion, imagination, in Libra, “We are,” partnerships, balance, cooperation) in an upright position represents a time of not looking or of shutting out the world. Because my Two is reversed, it is validating the Two of Wands. Lots of interactions; after all, Fire works because it has fuel, and fuel is available.
My Legacy card is the Three of Swords reversed (whew!), flavored by The Lovers. 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. Since my Three of Swords is reversed, any situations that might present the possibility of harm will end up not nearly as bad as expected. My reversed Three of Swords is being flavored by The Lovers. The Lovers (Air, hot/separates and wet/adapts, quick and animated, intellectual, problems or challenges; Gemini, “I think,” curious, talkative, sociable, dual; Zayin, double-edged sword; and the Path between Tiphareth, the hub of the creation process where energies harmonize and focus to illuminate and clarify, and Binah, female receptive energy and the origin of form and structure) tells of duality, union, and personal choices. This card is about love, but it is also about our personal values and how they affect our choices, and the promises we make to others. The Lovers present the two halves that when united are greater than the sum of their parts, and because it is flavoring my reversed Three of Swords, challenges will offer opportunities for connections and support. Interestingly, The Lovers can indicate a moment of doubt; once again, the ending will be happy and perhaps the pause presented by doubt will allow beneficial choices.
My 6-digit date number is 4, the number of depth and stability.
My horoscopes: “You might be hard and cold when it comes to the facts, Sagittarius, and you could come across as tough and rather harsh. In reality, this often just masks your sensitive interior. Perhaps you're insecure about your feelings and how you express yourself. People might never know this because you're so good at showing only the strong-willed, electric side of your personality. Be careful of being too stingy about sharing yourself with others”
And: “Today you may sit down at the computer for just a minute to research something on the Internet and wind up spending most of the afternoon entranced by what you're reading. You could very well stumble upon some information on the occult and mysticism. You've always been fascinated, and now that you've begun learning you don't want to stop. Perhaps you could enroll in a workshop to learn and mingle with others with a similar interest.”
