Adjustment Tarot: Weekly Tarotcast™ – Free Tarot Reading
11-19-19 through 11-26-19
The Adjustment tarot card is this week’s Tarotcast. In the Tarot deck I use (Thoth), the Adjustment Tarot card is number 8 of the Major Arcana. But, in many decks the card is Justice and is number 11 of the Majors. Confused yet? Don’t be.
The energy of this card is balanced, impartial and objective. It represents karmic justice in the highest sense. It shows us karma for what it is – a balancing and harmonizing force in the Universe. This card depicts the Egyptian Goddess Maat. Maat judged the souls of the dead by weighing them against one single ostrich feather. Ostrich plumes were her sacred symbol.
On the Tree of Life, this card travels path 22. It joins sephiroth or sphere 5 Geburah (Severity) to sephiroth or sphere 6 Tiphareth (Beauty). This card’s Hebrew letter, Lamed – means an ox goad (or whip). That’s a pretty strong symbol for justice and the meting out of punishment, wouldn’t you say? This is one of the reasons that Aleister Crowley swapped this card numbered 8 with card number 11 – the Strength card. Which to further confuse and confound you, Crowley calls “Lust”. I won’t go into more explanation or I’ll need to write a dissertation.
This card is the zodiacal trump of Libra, with Venus as its ruler and Saturn exalted. Again, this is in keeping with the idea of Justice. The Libra Scales balance Saturn’s highest energy. The fulfillment of obligations and responsibilities, both practical and karmic.
In real-time astrology, the Sun completes its transit of Water-sign Scorpio. It enters Fire-sign Sagittarius on November 22nd. Mercury is now direct in Scorpio. The Sun in Sag sparks exploration of religion and spirituality. We aim toward our highest goals.
On November 25th Venus enters Earth-sign Capricorn, ruled by Saturn. This is a perfect alignment with the energy of this week’s card. Communications are serious and cautious. We’re concerned with our reputations and the good opinions of others. We may find ourselves focused on conservative approaches and traditional values. Loyalty, trustworthiness and patience are important this week.
Lots of positive energy surrounds the New Moon in Sagittarius on November 26th. This energy brings a fresh start. It’s an opportunity to welcome new beginnings. We celebrate life transitions and spiritual healing.
Misuse, darkening or the shadow energy of this card includes hypocrisy and self-righteousness. Unless we’ve walked a mile in the other person’s Louboutins, better to hold off on a condemnation. Also, we shouldn’t expect from others what we don’t expect from ourselves. “Do as I say, not as I do” is a formula for failure under this week’s influences.
Let’s focus on balancing out various areas of our lives this week. Are we overworking, overeating, or otherwise “over” indulging? Time to work in some healthier harmony. With the Adjustment Tarot card, it’s best to choose the middle way rather than the extremes. We’ll be happier, better-rested and more refreshed if we do.
Power colors: emerald green, pale green and deep blue and deep blue-green.
Power stones: sapphire, lapis, emerald, opal, jade, garnet, onyx and obsidian. Wear these as jewelry or carry them as power stones. They will enhance our sense of fairness, balance, good judgment. They will help us fulfill our responsibilities and obligations.
Power metals: copper and lead. Copper is the better choice for wearing. Meditate on the idea that lead is very heavy, but also soft and malleable.
Power fragrances: violet, rose, bergamot, apple, strawberry and vanilla. Also, beauty products made from hempseed, olive and grapeseed oils. These are natural, luxurious indulgences. All will help us channel the beauty, pleasure and luxury of Venus. At the same time, they will balance the responsible, pragmatic sobriety of Saturn. Justice – or rather, Adjustment is the natural, positive result.
Power foods: foods prepared with apples, strawberries, vanilla, figs, grapes, dates, lentils, thyme. Also olive or grapeseed oil. All provide the same beneficial effects already described.
