Magician dressed as the Charioteer, Mercury in Cancer

Magician as Charioteer

Mercury moves into Cancer today, and stays there until August 8th.

If we translate this transit into the Tarot, it would be like the Magician is wearing the clothes of the Charioteer. He’s hit the road in some pretty snazzy armour.

Mercury in Cancer, or the Magician wearing the Charioteer’s clothing, is an excellent time to turn your ideas into action.

Inspiration abounds, as does the strength to follow through on your commitments.

Don’t give up if the going gets tough, or communication gets murky. Just recalibrate and try again.

Clearly let others know what it is you need from them, but don’t wait around if they can’t help you.

A determined focus and the intention to move forward will get you to where you need to go.

Charge forward with faith in victory. Success is calling.

Moon in Pisces – High Priestess in the Moon's Clothing

High Priestess dressed in the moon's clothing

The Moon moves into Pisces today and stays there until Sunday.

Described in Tarot cards, this transit would be like the High Priestess is dressed as the Moon. She’s lost her material body and has disappeared into the celestial body that usually rests at her feet.

The Moon in Pisces, or High Priestess dressed as the Moon, is a time of increased perception, ill-defined understanding and what might be described as night vision.

During this time you could find your dreams feel more real than your daylight hours and what’s not said is louder than what is.

Fears might grow like a boogieman under the bed, but if you just take a peek, they’re as likely to be dust bunnies as demons or ghosts.

Be still, aware and fearless. It might be dark outside, but if there was ever a time you can navigate the unknown, this is it. Listen, breathe, flow.

We just had this card on Sunday, but I welcome it back! ….

Celebrate with enthusiasm!  Today is for fun and sharing. Friends are at the forefront, especially the ladies in your life.

Good times, good friends, good drink – it could be a pretty excellent day.  Don’t be afraid to be happy and remember to let people know how much you like them.

Take delight in music, poetry, painting – this is a time of inspiration and creativity.  Social interaction with others will be invigorating and fruitful.

Let yourself get carried away by laughter and joy.  Seek out the beautiful within yourself and those around you.  You won’t be disappointed if you do.

If I were ever asked what the Devil and Moon cards might look like in ballet form, I think I’d point to the short film by Chris Turner called Hallowed.

It’s based on Dante’s Inferno and features the English National Ballet.

I can’t embed the video here, but if you click on the Devil and Moon cards below, you’ll see what I mean.

You feel full up with all the love around you.  In fact, you might even be a little overwhelmed with how much you care and how loved you feel.

This is a happy time to be with your family or friends or whoever it is that makes up your social community.

You’re probably nearing the end of an important emotional phase.  Taking the time now to recognize and be grateful for all you have will help prepare you for the beginning of the next stage of your journey.

Celebrate with your loved ones, remembering with joy and humour all the good and not so good days that brought you to where you are now.

Charge forward with strength and vitality.  This is a day of power, passion and growing energy. Your plan is in place and now’s the time to take it to the next step.  Use your internal fire to take you where you’re tying to go.

You don’t need to wait till everything’s perfect to start moving.  In fact, more often than not, things don’t start falling where they should until you start shifting them up and get some excitement going.  Take a chance that you know what you’re doing and act on it.  Believe in yourself and don’t be shy.

Moon in Aquarius – High Priestess in the Star's Clothing

High Priestess in Star's Clothing

High Priestess in Star’s Clothing

The Moon moves into Aquarius today and stays there until Thursday.

Described in Tarot cards, this transit would be like the High Priestess is dressed as the Star. In other words, her robes are gone and she’s naked as the bird in the tree behind her.

The Moon in Aquarius, or High Priestess in the Star’s clothing, can sometimes be emotionally stressful. Hope may be in the air, but it’s a cautious hope.

Emotionally you feel like sharing, bubbling over with dreams for the future. But your mind keeps getting in the way, reminding you that dreams can sometimes be nightmares.

Try not to spend what could be a nice time double guessing yourself or listing off all the reasons things could go wrong. They might. But they probably won’t.

Be real, but not a wet blanket. Rather than smothering your dreams, direct them with intelligence.

It looks like you may have set yourself up just right. You’ve created the space you’re in through determined effort and hard work.

Step by step you’ve manifested your own prosperity and this is a wonderful time to enjoy it. It hasn’t always be easy but the rewards are well worth it.

Be generous with your prosperity, and kind to those that haven’t quite done it yet. People might come to you for practical advice or help. Or maybe it will be you taking that step to approach a kindly soul who could help you.

Don’t hesitate either to help or to ask for help. We’re here for each other and create the most beautiful of worlds when we work together.

Stones of Fate – a tarot game

May 27th, 2013 § 0 comments § permalink

Here’s a Kickstarter Tarot Game project I can get behind … Stones of Fate, a strategy game based on Tarot cards and illustrated by none other than Ciro Marchetti!

Stones of Fate was designed by Luke Laurie and is being released by Cosmic Wombat Games.

In it players try to win points through gathering up the ‘good’ cards and discarding those that aren’t so fun.

To see how the game is played, visit the Cosmic Wombat Games website, and to learn more about the Kickstarter campaign, take a look at the video below.

It sounds like a lot of fun, and with Ciro illustrating, I’m certain that it’s gorgeous. I hope they raise the money they need … I’ve got my order in.
