Today I will use the Legacy of the Divine Tarot. My cards are The Sun reversed and the Queen of Swords. Whew! Better than yesterday.
The Sun corresponds with Fire (hot/separates and dry/shapes, spontaneous, impulsive and energetic change), our Sun (the inner core of a person or situation), Resh (the face; reason), and the Path between Yesod (the place where patterns and images emerge that may manifest in the physical world) and Hod (provides analysis and communication), and it tells of a time of enlightenment and peace that comes after the completion of some ordeal.
The Legacy Sun card shows a man standing before an orrery, a representation of our solar system, with The Sun illuminating the entire room. The ceiling is decorated with signs of the zodiac. We are reminded by this brilliance that our own sun lights our world, and nourishes the life that exists here, its gravity holds us in place, and affects us in many ways, both obvious and subtle.
The Queen of Swords (cusp of Virgo, “I serve,” practical, sensible, work and service oriented, and Libra, “We are,” partnerships, balance, cooperation, grace) can be considered a Minor Arcana representation of the Justice card, which is about responsibility and the relationship between “cause” and “effect.” The main difference is that while Justice is about the law, the Queen of Swords is about the intent behind the law. She is Water of Air, and her feelings support her intellect and the workings of her mind.
The Legacy Queen of Swords is beautiful. Her gaze is piercing, and she does not look like she misses much. Her hair is pulled back from her face, and her tattoos look like lethal blades; she is truly a warrior. She can bring things together, or she can cause them to separate.
My Queen feels like the important card today, and she is reminding me that perspective is important. I need to allow experiences to help with the decision making process today. That reversed Sun is telling me to give things a rest until I am able to see things in a new light (for while The Sun reversed may represent the setting sun, it will rise again in the morning). Perhaps I can tap into the workings of my mind and strive to sense the more subtle messages around me while my Sun is reversed and its strong light is temporarily dimmed.
