While contemplating the 56th chapter of the Tao Tse Ching by Lao Tzu (a Hierophant if there ever was one), I couldn’t help but think of the Tarot’s High Priestess. Of all the characters in the deck, I think she’s the one most likely to know, while keeping silent.
Are there choices to be made? Decisions you’ve put off for another time? Well this is the time. The Lovers card asks us to finally make up our minds – either commit or get out now.
On a personal level, the Lovers reminds us to balance the opposites within ourselves. Are your ying and yang in sync? Does your conscious experience compliment your unconscious dream state or do they seem at war? Are you living a life that satisfies your soul?
Heavy questions, but this is a great day to think about them. In fact, you might find it difficult not to.
This is a serious commitment you’re thinking about. To help you make up your mind, ask yourself which direction brings you closer to your soul’s call. You probably already know the answer.
The Lovers is really a beautiful energy of inner and outer unity, enjoy.
This is a day for looking forward. You’ve got some time and you’re in a good position to look around and see what you want to do next. The world is literally in your hands and it’s up to you to decide the next move.
What is it that makes you feel most in control of your domain? What is it that makes you feel you’re really doing what you’re supposed to be doing?
Don’t rush this – it takes some serious consideration. Use this time to start getting a grip on your destiny. You’re in charge of this one. Don’t be afraid to take control. Your option is to let someone else.
The moon moves into Scorpio today and stays there until Monday.
If you translate this transit into the Tarot, you could say that the High Priestess is dressed as Death. She’s in the midst of a great transformation.
The Moon in Scorpio, or High Priestess in Death’s clothing, suggests a time when feelings run deep. The ability to end relationships that don’t work, or release stagnant emotions is accentuated.
If there’s a situation in your life that’s nearing its completion, especially if it’s emotional or relationship-oriented, this might be a good time to let it go. At least explore it with emotional clarity.
This isn’t a time to be afraid, but rather a time to face your fears with equanimity and intelligence.
You’ve got what it takes. Don’t back down from the scary stuff.
Sweetness abounds when the Page of Cups is around. This is a great day to communicate emotions – enthusiastically and without censor, especially to those you love.
There’s a lightness in the air and the sense that something new could be starting. And it just might be.
It’s good to remember though, that there’s no need for you to commit to anything serious right now. It’s still the time of freshness and beginnings. Becoming heavy now would only dampen what’s still just growing.
