Fortune: Weekly Tarotcast™ – Free Tarot Reading
6-02-20 through 6-09-20
This week’s Tarotcast card is Fortune. Many Tarot decks name this card the Wheel of Fortune. We’ll be experiencing a lot of changes this week. The traditional interpretation of this card is good luck. That’s only a part of the story. This is the card of our luck – or fortunes – changing. That can mean if our fortunes have been bad, they’re likely to change for the better. But if they’ve been good, the wheel is turning, so it’s a good idea to watch out for obstacles or pitfalls. This card also represents the risk-taker; one who is willing to gamble on an opportunity. Though uncertain of the results, he or she is able to turn a lucky break to his or her own advantage.
The Fortune card symbolizes the only constant in our lives: change. No matter the current situation, remember that it is not forever. The Wheel turns. Cycles change and progress. All that is now will give way to new experiences, circumstances and connections.
The Fortune card also represents the Wheel of Karma. There is a feeling that events coming to pass are beyond our control. Understand that whatever is occurring is a result of our deeds and thoughts. The law of Karma operates on a different level than that of blind luck.
On the Tree of Life Fortune travels path 21. It joins sephiroth or sphere 4, Chesed (Mercy) to sephiroth or sphere 7, Netzach (Victory). Its Hebrew letter is Kaph, meaning the palm of the hand. This is a fitting image for the fortune we’re born with (written in the lines of our palms). It is also the fortune we make through the things we do and the actions we take – what we create through our own efforts.
Fortune is the planetary trump of Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system. This is the planet of expansion – bigger, better, more.
In real time astrology, the Sun continues its transit of Air-sign Gemini. Jupiter is currently retrograde in Earth-sign Capricorn. Capricorn is the sign of ambition and perseverance. This retrograde energy slows down professional projects. Plans are on hold. Use this energy to get a fresh perspective. Review and revise, if necessary. We may lose some enthusiasm or self-confidence. We won’t know if our luck is in or out until later. Be assured that the Wheel will turn.
Jupiter’s quintile aspect with Chiron was exact on June 1st. Quintiles reveal our innate talents and gifts. These are raw energies – challenging unless controlled and directed into proper channels. This quintile broadens our understanding of others’ difficulties. We’re willing to learn and grow.
On June 5th we have a Full Moon Penumbral Lunar Eclipse in Fire-sign Sagittarius. Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter. Watch for anger and impulsiveness since the Moon is square Mars. The Moon opposite Venus retrograde means a tough go for romantic relationships too. Strong relationships will weather the storm. Shaky ones will break under the strain. Avoid disrupted influences and disengage from potential violence.
Misuse, darkening or the shadow energy of this card includes feelings of fatalism. Seeing oneself as a victim of fate. Disempowerment and a perceived lack of control over our own course in life.
Let’s focus on the positives. Here is the promise that we’ll be able to roll with life’s inevitable changes. We can gain greater awareness when we transcend polarity (good/bad, up/down, light/dark, etc.)
Power colors: violet, bright blue, purple and yellow.
Power stones: sapphire, amethyst or diamond. Wear these as jewelry or carry as power stones. They will keep you feeling optimistic and help you take educated and informed “risks.”
Power metal: tin. Not great for wearing, but often used to improve the strength and flexibility of other metals. So, it’s a good reminder of the powers of adaptation and transformation.
Power fragrances: poppy and honeysuckle. These scents inspire you to use Jupiter’s expansive energy to your benefit. You’ll recognize opportunities and take some intelligent risks.
Power foods: use mint, clove, cinnamon, nutmeg and sage. All provide the same beneficial effects already described.
