Knight of Wands/Three 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. This Knight can be seen to represent the coming and going of energy, but that process may not be effective because things are not seen through to completion. Energy may be high today, but scattered. The Three of Pentacles (Mars, action, spontaneity, aggression, drive, in Capricorn, “I build,” ambition, cunning, competence) tells of competence, planning and teamwork. I am being reminded that the end result I desire might be more easily achieved if I make use of the people around me. We both win if the end result is good.
My Thoth cards are The Six of Cups (“Pleasure”) reversed and the Seven of Swords (“Futility”). 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. This card in an upright position is about friendship and play, teamwork, and drawing strength from shared experiences. Because the card is reversed, situations may not seem quite so innocent. The Seven of Swords (Moon, feelings and emotions, illusion, imagination, in Aquarius, “I know,” friendships, cause-oriented, the group, aloofness) in an upright position tells of the effort to maintain things as we want them, often through the use of deception and without considering the wants or needs of others. This card can also be referring to the effort necessary to maintain things, or lack of effort thereof. Because my card is reversed, I am being told that maintaining things as they are (or as I expect they are) is not the right plan. Moving forward and releasing the past might be betters.
My Legacy card is the Two of Cups reversed flavored by the Ten of Swords reversed. The Two of Cups (Venus, beauty, allure, relationships, in Cancer, “I feel,” sensitive, family and home oriented, tenacious, moody) tells of 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 is similar to the Six of Cups above, except that its energies usually focus on one other person, rather than the group hinted at by the Six of Cups. Because my card is reversed, connections might appear strained, at least on the surface. My reversed Two of Cups is being flavored by the Ten of Swords, also reversed. The Ten of Swords (the Sun, the inner core of a person or situation, in Gemini, “I think,” curious, sociable, dual, talkative) tells of the perception that interference, powerlessness and restriction will rule the day. Interference, there’s that word again, but thankfully my Ten of Swords is also reversed. The traditional image on this one is of a body laying on its stomach, with ten Swords sticking up out of his back. Talk about overkill! The suit of Swords is about the mind and the intellect, and because this card is reversed, I just might be able to see the silver lining to even an uncomfortable situation.
My 6-digit date number is 7, the number that tells of the pause that occurs when growth slows and degeneration approaches.
My horoscopes: “Oh, why the heck not? Make that your stock answer today when people approach you with fun and even outrageous ideas. The Moon in your playful fifth house aligns with devil-may-care Jupiter in your adventure zone, tempting you to throw caution to the wind. An opportunity to travel, even just for a weekend trip, could present itself. If it sounds too good to miss, don't let your duties keep you from accepting. Find a way to make it all work.”
And: “Today is like playing a game on your home field, Nanci. You have fans out there supporting you and you know the territory. Take advantage of the little things that you have going for you. There is a dramatic force at work that may be erratic, but extremely powerful as long as you can maintain control. Stay focused on your goals. True happiness is only a small step away!”
