Knight of Wands/King of Pentacles. The Knight of Wands (cusp of Scorpio, “I desire,” intense, controlling, deep, obsessive, and Sagittarius, “I seek,” philosophic, fun-loving, blundering) usually represents a person of passion, courage, enthusiasm and boundless energy; most definitely not background-type efforts. Despite is high energy level, this Knight is not necessarily good at completing tasks. This Knight can be seen to represent the coming and going of energy. The King of Pentacles (cusp of Aries, “I want,” action oriented, assertive, competitive, and Taurus, “I have,” sensual, stubborn, cautious, physically oriented) is the expert on managing resources and on the physical world manifestation of all kinds. The King is the steward of Nature and the generous and supporting boss, and he is reminding me that I need to appreciate the talents and abilities of those around me, for they have the potential to bring benefit to all. He can be seen as a representation of maintaining energy.
My Thoth cards are the Ace of Swords reversed and the Three of Swords (“Sorrow”). The Ace of Swords (Capricorn, “I build,” ambition, caution authority, cunning, Aquarius and Pisces, “I believe,” feeling, duality, soul growth, artistic) tells of the birth of ideas and concepts. This Ace in an upright position offers the power to analyze that is necessary in order to make good choices, and in order to react correctly to events in our day. However, my Ace is reversed, and my mind may seem more stationary today, even lethargic, rather than being drawn to create. Also, the reversed Sword seems to be grounded, which could mean that I am closing myself off to new ideas, attempting to stick with what I know or “own.” The Three of Swords (Saturn, discipline, responsibility, limitations and resistance, in Libra, “We are,” partnerships, balance, cooperation) usually indicates the possibility that logic, rationalizing and the intellect could end up causing harm if they are not used with balance and compassion. Crowley sees this card as indicating not a specific sorrow, but rather melancholy, the kind of melancholy that actually brings changes for the good.
My Legacy card is The Wheel, flavored by the Three of Swords again! 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. The Wheel reminds us that nothing is permanent and everything is always in motion, motion that we can’t control. I am being told that my job is not to control what is coming to me, but rather to effectively make use of whatever comes to me, whether comfortable or uncomfortable. The cycles of The Wheel are important, even the uncomfortable ones, and if The Wheel stops turning, we will fall off. My Wheel is being flavored by another Three of Swords. The Legacy Three of Swords reminds us (with its non-traditional image) that often this card appears when we need to acknowledge our hurt, express our pain, and despite our discomfort, we must choose our words carefully. Interestingly enough, Saturn can be seen as offering resistance, and Libra can be seen as offering balance. We need some resistance in order to achieve balance, just as we need expansion. The Three of Swords shows us what happens when we don’t have that expansion, and attempt to achieve balance with only resistance.
My 6-digit date number is 4, the number of depth and stability.
My horoscopes: “How do you feel about public speaking, Sagittarius? You generally give good soapbox, but you could feel self-conscious about presenting your ideas in front of others today, as your emotions are hovering near the surface. The Moon in your own sign means you're hyperaware of how you'll come across, and with communicator Mercury hissing across the sky, this relates especially to your words. But remember that people love an impassioned speech, so showing your true colors will make you that much more relatable.”
And: “Your wacky personality is apt to be appreciated today, but make sure you don't take it too far. Leave plenty of room for seriousness to enter into the picture. There is a dreamy, cloudy sensation to the day that might make it difficult for you to concentrate on any one thing. If you pretend to know the answer when you don't, you will only serve to confuse the people around you. The truth will eventually be revealed.”
