Ace of Swords reversed/The Wheel of Fortune. The Ace of Swords (Capricorn, “I build,” ambition, caution authority, cunning, Aquarius, “I know,” friendships, cause-oriented, the group, aloofness, and Pisces, “I believe,” feeling, duality, soul growth, artistic) tells of the birth of ideas and concepts; it 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. This card when upright is filled with intellectual potential. Interestingly enough, the reversed Ace of Swords is seen as a card of fertility, and when we think about the Great Rite, that makes sense. Grounding that Sword point into the earth may cause that crown to fall off, but it also can be seen as a catalyst for earthly developments. Not ideas here, but rather manifestation. 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 but that we certainly can benefit from. All we have to do is stop fighting the flows of energies. This card also tells of karma, “ripe karma,” if you will, karma that is ready to manifest.
My Thoth cards are the Nine of Disks (“Gain”) and the Princess of Swords reversed. The Nine of Disks (Venus, beauty, allure, relationships, in Virgo, “I serve,” practical, analytical, work and service oriented) tells of accomplishment through the imposition of discipline. This card literally purrs with satisfaction, telling us that we should feel great satisfaction because of our accomplishments, which have occurred due to our own focus and discipline. The Princess/Page of Swords (Capricorn, “I build,” ambitious, competent, cautious, cunning, Aquarius, “I know,” friendships, the group, society, cause-oriented, and Pisces, “I believe,” feelings, duality, soul growth, spirituality) encourages us to use our mind and intellect to analyze our situations as well as our emotions and feelings. Uncle Al sees this Princess in an upright position as being a bit on the stern side, alert and looking in all directions. Because she is reversed, all of her cunning becomes focused on something that is unworthy of her.
My Legacy card is The Star, flavored by the Three of Coins reversed. The Star (Air, hot/separates and wet/adapts; Aquarius, “I know,” friendships, cause-oriented, the group, aloofness; Tzaddi, fishhook; the Path between Malkuth, the physical world of action and outer, physical reality, and Netzach, the stimulating factors of emotion and inspiration) is the “good will to all” card, and while it can hint at some unexpected darkness, it also reminds us that things will turn out okay in the end. The Star reminds us to have faith (and this card is indeed the embodiment of faith), for while it may seem to be the darkest night, the dawn is just beyond the horizon, and it is in the dark sky that Stars can really shine. The Star also tells of the gift of life and harmony to the sould and to the body. My Star is being flavored by the Three of Coins reversed. The Three of Coins (Mars, action, spontaneity, aggression, drive, in Capricorn, “I build,” ambition, cunning, competence) in an upright position tells of competence, planning and teamwork. The Legacy card tells of a career or a skill that is a passion; a vocation which requires practice and skill and focus to manifest successfully. My Three of Coins is reversed, and it does not appear that there will be forward movement on any physical-world projects today. But because my reversed Three of Coins is connected to The Star, I am being told to not worry or fixate on this pause because optimism just might get things moving.
My 6-digit date number is 3, the number that tells of a new creation out of the position and potential of the Ace, and the balance, polarity, and energy of “distance between” of the 2.
My horoscopes: “Cutthroat, much? Today's Moon is conjunct controlling Pluto in Capricorn, your work and money sector, firing up your more ruthless side. If you feel like your bottom line is at stake, you're likely to do what it takes to protect yourself. (Beware of trampling others in the process, though.) The intensity of this day might have you scratching your head, i.e. "Where did that come from?" Your best bet? Stay centered, focusing a laser-like energy on meeting your budgets and deadlines. Sagittarius, you're unstoppable. Use the force for good!”
And: “Your spirit is sparkling, and you may feel yourself filling up with tremendous energy as you go about your day. Your sense of adventure is at a monthly peak, and there is very little that can get you down. One area of your life that might be slightly difficult for you to deal with right now, though, is your world of love and romance. For some reason, you may feel like this is the one domain in which things aren't going the way you would like them to. The secret is to be patient.”
