Five of Wands/The Wheel of Fortune reversed. The Five of Wands, which corresponds with Saturn (discipline, responsibility, law and order) in Leo (“I am, passionate, dramatic, egotistical) indicates a struggle caused by annoying cross-purposes. This is not always a bad thing, although it can be frustrating to deal with. After all, a breakdown of communication (likely caused by an inconsistent effort) is a pain even if the effect of the breakdown makes us aware of the need for better communication. The Wheel of Fortune (Fire (hot/separates and dry/shapes, and spontaneous, impulsive and energetic change), Jupiter (expansiveness and growth, justice, fortune), Kaph (grasping hand), and the Path between Netzach (the stimulating factors of emotion and inspiration) and Chesed (the place where forms and structure are stabilized and nurtured)) tells of sudden movement, but not movement caused by us or controlled by us. In an upright position, The Wheel reminds us that nothing is permanent and everything is always in motion, motion that we can’t control. However, my Wheel is reversed, and it is validating my interpretation of the Five of Wands. I **can** do something about this. Focus!!
My Thoth cards are the Ten of Wands (“Oppression”) reversed and the Ace of Wands. Clear message! The Ten of Wands (Saturn, discipline, responsibility, limitations and resistance, in Sagittarius, “I seek,” philosophic, fun-loving, blundering) tells of being taxed to some perceived limit, or of feeling as if we are out of gas at the bottom of a hill. This card can also tell of a passion that has taken a life of its own and gotten out of control. Talk about a heavy burden. But since my Ten of Wands is reversed, I should be able to find a happy ending. 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. Lots of Fiery energy here, but in the early stages; Will has not yet been manifested. I had this Ace yesterday, too, so the manifestation has not yet happened.
My Legacy card is The World, flavored by the Page of Wands. Niiiice! The World/Universe, 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. The World is a card of an ending that contains the seed of a new beginning, and so it tells of a change or emigration of sorts. The World is being flavored with a nice card today, the Page of Wands. The Page of Wands (Cancer, “I feel,” sensitive, tenacious, nurturing, moody; Leo, “I am,” passionate, dramatic noble egotistical; and Virgo, “I serve,” practical, analytical, work and service oriented) is fun to be around, unless you have a migraine. This Page is reminding me that I am only being restricted if I believe this is so, and I am better off being enthusiastic about whatever is happening, and open to new experiences. There is always room to play, too.
My 6-digit date number is 7, the number that tells of the pause that comes as growth slows and degeneration approaches, usually requiring a choice of some kind.
My horoscopes: “Intimacy will be in the air over the next few days. Loved ones suddenly want to spend more time with you, and you'll want to invite friends over every night! By all means, do. You'll be recharged, and some of the wonderful discussions could lead to something great. However, there may be a bit of tension in the air to temper all that closeness, since not everyone will agree with your point of view.”
And: “You may have an urge to invent new things. You feel compelled to create something, either in the artistic, technical, or philosophical fields. If only you would give yourself enough time to pursue these imaginings. Today, realize that concentration is the key to accomplishment. Put away such distractions as books, magazines, and newspapers and you may well be surprised by the wealth of inspiration that comes to you.”
