The Tower's Lightening Strikes the Lovers' Angel - Mars in Gemini

Lightening Strikes the Lovers’ Angel

Mars has moved into Gemini and will be there until June 4th.

Looking at this transit from a Tarot perspective, it’s like the Tower’s struck the Lovers’ Angel. The heavens are shaking. Are the Lovers about to go for a tumble?

Mars in Gemini, or the Tower striking the Lovers’ Angel, can be a time of disruption in relationships, and mental attitudes. Commitments you thought were sturdy, might suddenly not seem so solid.

But paradise lost could actually mean freedom from choices that no longer satisfy.

New information and circumstances can ultimately lead to expansion of the mind and a deepening of commitment. A new solidity can be established, but the foundation is likely to shift.

Look at this period as a challenge to be as open-minded as you can. Ideas will likely be flying fast and furious. Options you hadn’t considered might soon seem quite reasonable.

Go with the flow. Liberation and illumination are possible. Not despite the chaos, but because of it.

Tower Striking the Hierophant's Throne

Lightening Strikes the Hierophant

Mars moves into Taurus tomorrow and stays there until April 21st.

Looking at this transit through the eyes of the Tarot, it’s like the Tower’s lightening has struck the Hierophant’s throne. And his acolytes are tumbling down.

When Mars moves into Taurus, and the Hierophant’s stone throne is struck by lightening, we might find that what we thought was certain, no longer seems so obvious.

Belief structures might shift, and rules that used to make sense might now feel outmoded.

Old ways of seeing the spirit, religion or traditional structures are all up for review. As could be our perceptions about who really has moral authority.

Don’t be afraid of letting tradition for tradition’s sake fall away. And if an idol or two falls with it, that’s all right too.

It might be a bit chaotic for a moment, but this is your chance to find faith in yourself. Use it as an opportunity to start being your own last word.

The Tower as the Emperor's Throne

Tower as Emperor’s Throne

Mars moves into Aries tonight and stays there until March 10th.

Looking at this transit from a tarot perspective, it’s like the Emperor was sitting in his castle just as the lightening struck. His stone throne is exploding.

Mars in Aries, or the Tower as the Emperor’s throne, is likely to be an exciting time. What you thought would never change suddenly does.

It could just be a way of seeing things. Old ideas are shattered and inspiration to begin afresh becomes overwhelming.

Or things might really be changing. New circumstances present themselves without warning and the way you were approaching a situation no longer works.

Destroy inertia and create a new world for yourself. This is a time of great power.

Potentially challenging, yes. But also a chance to take charge in your life like you never thought possible.

The Empress dressed as the Moon

Venus moved into Pisces today and stays there until February 3rd.

If you look at this transit from a Tarot perspective, it’s like the Empress is dressed as the Moon. She’s all but disappeared in the night.

Venus in Pisces, or the Empress dressed as the Moon, is a good time to embrace your own unconscious depths.

Nurture your psychic energies through art, poetry or creative visualizations.

And try not to be afraid. Feelings that are usually expressed out loud might be less open than usual. That doesn’t mean they’re any less deep.

There’s as much beauty in the dark as there is in the light. It’s just not flashy. Dive into the mysteries and enjoy what you can never know for sure.

Though new perspectives might throw you for a bit of a loop, you’re going to be fine. Follow your instincts and you’ll stay on path.

Take control, but be flexible. Attaching yourself too strongly to one particular concept or way of doing things isn’t necessary or even desirable right now.

Keeping yourself balanced as you take action towards change is more important. And for the time being at least, probably a lot easier and more productive.
