Choppy Waters and the 2 of Pentacles

July 31st, 2015 § 0 comments § permalink

2 of Pentacles - Rider Waite Smith Tarot

Have you ever considered the water in the background of the RWS 2 of Pentacles card?

In the card, the main character, a man with an odd shaped hat juggling two discs, stands on dry land in front a very choppy ocean.

For me, this particular two most often represents taking care of the details. It suggests that someone is in a positive transition of sorts, and just needs to move patiently from one task to the next.

The water in the background however, hints that though the tasks might be small in nature, and the transition relatively minor, whatever’s going on does have a strong emotional element to it.

Water represents the emotions, and choppy water represents equally choppy, or shifting emotions.

When the 2 of Pentacles comes up in a reading, I typically recommend sticking with the basics and just getting the job done, while acknowledging that there might be some strong feelings behind the changes at hand.

It’s important to remember that though the emotions might be strong, the person involved is more than strong enough to deal with them.

Like the boats riding the waves in the image, you might bob up and down a bit, but if you keep doing what you need to do, you’ll definitely stay afloat.

Emotional renewal is the name of the game today.  A new way of feeling about something and/or somebody is about to emerge.  Perhaps you’re feeling it already – it’s like that first hint of spring or when a magnolia tree finally blossoms after a long cold winter.

Joy and hope are in the air and accessible to you.  Throw away any gloom you’ve been dragging around and wake up to the inspiration of postive emotions.  There’s a sense that anything can happen and it’s probably going to be good. Be receptive to the love that’s around you and give it back in kind.

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

July 30th, 2015 § 0 comments § permalink

High Priestess in Star's Clothing

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

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’s time to get down to the details.  A new project is in the works and you’ve got the task of making it happen – or at least starting the process off.

Keep the reason you’re doing it in mind – that’s the fire that drives the whole enterprise.

If the less than exciting details are getting you down, remember that it’s the details that build the foundation to any project.

Don’t be afraid to sludge and trudge on through.  It’ll be worth it in the end.

You’ve been working hard and the people that matter are starting to take notice.  Take pride in doing a good job.

You’re becoming a master at your trade, and mastery requires not only technical skill, but also an appreciation for the art in what you do.

When you care about your job or the tasks you’ve taken on, the work involved is rarely a chore.  Look at your tasks as the creative processes they are.

Whatever you’re doing, you’re creating something, bringing something new into the world.  Consider your role as creator with the seriousness it deserves.

You’re becoming very good at what you’ve been working hard on.  Congratulations, keep it up.

Moon in Capricorn – High Priestess in the Devil’s Clothing

The High Priestess dressed as the Devil

The Moon moves into Capricorn today and will stay there until Thursday.

If you were to describe this transit using the Tarot, you might say that the High Priestess is wearing the Devil’s clothing. The virginal goddess has gotten downright beastly.

The Moon in Capricorn, or High Priestess in the Devil’s clothing, is a period of potential internal conflict. The physical world might seem to draw you away from what you typically believe to be right.

You might feel driven or compelled by behaviours and attitudes that go against the grain of your morality. It could be liberating or disturbing, depending on your secrets.

Whatever’s going on though, don’t be too hard on yourself. Get obsessions out of your system, and learn what you can about yourself while you do so.

You should be ready to move on soon. There’s nothing wrong with a little focused physicality. Just don’t get stuck.

The flame has been ignited and there’s a new feeling floating around.  This is a day to let inspiration lead the way. 

Throw out your old excuses and start something you really care about.  Passion and fire are what motivates the soul and it’s time to listen to yours.

You might not yet know what’s different but you know your old way of doing things is no longer possible.  A new spirit has been planted and you can probably feel the excitement beginning to build.

Whatever it is that moves you with enthusiasm should be your starting point.  Being true to your spirit isn’t being selfish.  It’s what makes you fully human.

Swift communication is at the forefront today.  Have you applied for something and been waiting to hear back?  Expecting some news to finally come down the wire?

Or maybe it will be a surprise. One way or another, the message is on its way and your wait is almost over.  You’ll know soon enough.

Now that your plans are in action, things will start moving quickly.  Communicate what you want and don’t be shy about it.

How else will people know what you’re thinking?  This is the time to get your ideas out there and your message heard.
