Two of Swords/Ace of Wands. Two of Swords/Ace of Wands. The Two of Swords (Moon, feelings and emotions, illusion, imagination, in Libra, “We are,” partnerships, balance, cooperation) represents a time of not looking or of shutting out the world. A bit of disconnect from the world can be helpful today because it allows me to achieve a pure inner focus. This card can also tell of being self-sufficient, or of not needing input from outside sources. 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, or at least lots of potential for that Fiery energy to manifest. The Llewellyn Welsh Ace of Wands tells of ideas fueled by desires and exciting breakthroughs in thinking. Perhaps they occur because of my time of shutting out the world, eh?
My Thoth cards are the Five of Disks (“Worry”) and the Three of Wands (“Virtue”). The Five of Disks (Mercury, reason, intelligence, education, skill, communication, in Taurus, “I have,” sensual, cautious, stubborn) tells of some loss or need within the physical world. This card tells of wandering aimlessly looking for help and not finding it. Since the image on the Thoth Five of Disks shows an upside-down pentacle, I may have a hint to the trouble. Spirit is not the main focus today, and perhaps it should be. Success is not just measured by material possessions, and material possessions are empty if they are not accompanied by love and passion and spirit. The Worry of this card can have a positive effect, if we allow our Worry to cause us to test the product to see if it is working okay. Even if we are expecting the worst, sometimes if we pay attention, we can find something good in the situation. The Three of Wands (Sun, the inner core of a person or situation, the deepest self and personal power, in Aries, “I want,” action oriented, pioneering, assertive) is a card of planning ahead that tells of the excitement that comes with good possibilities ready to be manifested. I love the energy of the Three of Wands, it is filled with possibility. Having an enterprising mind and a plan for the future brings optimism; strength has been established.
My Legacy card is the Ace of Wands (again!) flavored by The Chariot reversed. The Legacy of the Divine Ace of Wands is considered a talisman of power. This talisman is not about the details or the finished product, it is about getting started, about the first step, and the natural upwelling of power that overcomes inertia and allowes movement. My Ace of Wands is being flavored by The Chariot reversed. The Chariot, which corresponds with Water (cold/binds and wet/adapts, and sensitive, emotional and imaginative energy that likes to stay the same or follow the same course), Cancer (“I feel,” sensitive, tenacious, nurturing, moody), Cheth (the fence), and the Path between Geburah (the place where forms and structure are challenged or affirmed) and Binah (female receptive energy and the origin of form and structure), tells of having the control necessary to focus on goals, and to avoid distractions. My Chariot is reversed, there could be obstacles in today’s path that appear unsurmountable. I need to guide my Chariot carefully because if I hit those obstacles in the wrong way, everything will fall over. Perhaps I will be better off if I allow the natural upwelling of power that is the Ace of Wands to fuel the day, rather than my Will and my attempt to control and direct my feelings.
My 6-digit date number is 8, the number that tells of the conscious and deliberate response to the pause and approach of degeneration that is the number 7, in order to maintain for a bit longer the harmony of the number 6.
My horoscopes: “Today the Moon in Gemini, your cooperative 7th house, forms a tricky opposition to restrictive Saturn in Sagittarius, potentially causing some tension with co-workers. Perhaps you're ready to take yourself more seriously, and going along with the gang for the sake of harmony feels like it threatens your individuality. You could be pessimistic about the end result, especially since you don't have that bird in hand just yet. Strike down sober thoughts by realizing they are probably fear-based. To keep the peace (inside and out), stay positive!”
And: “You have the gift of being able to get your great ideas across to other people. In your family life, you may be the one who teaches your children or younger relatives about life and its responsibilities. Today, someone might just teach you something you didn't know. You should never forget that education means communication, and communication is the exchange of ideas.”
