Seven of Swords: Weekly Tarotcast™ – Free Tarot Reading
4-20-21 through 4-27-21
The Seven of Swords is this week’s Tarotcast card. This card represents intellectual and mental fluctuation. Also healthy skepticism. Circumstances are uncertain or “the whole story” isn’t available. There is a self-protective energy to this card. It helps us guard against people who’d take advantage of us. Don’t let others take you in. The positive energy of this card roots out self-deception. It reveals the deceits of others, if those exist. The downside is tolerance or compromise when those approaches are disastrous.
The element of Air influenced by instinctive and instinctual behavior. Our mental energy creates a false sense of security. Appeasement. Passive diplomacy.
The Number 7
The Sevens of the Minor Arcana illustrate the motives for manifestation. The balance of the sixes gives way to questioning and exploration. Disruption arises from the search for the underlying causes of action. The sevens dissolve and deconstruct.
On the Tree of Life, this card represents the formula 7. Sephiroth or sphere 7, Netzach (Victory), sphere of Venus and the masculinized Feminine. In the suit of Swords (Yetzirah). The formative world. The element of Air – our intellect and mental processes. Plus the Moon in Aquarius equaling Futility.
This card symbolizes the Moon in Aquarius. It rules from 20 to 30 degrees Aquarius, or February 9th through February 18th. So, if your birthday falls on or between these dates, you’ll be feeling this week’s energy even more than the rest of us. The moon doesn’t highlight Aquarius’ better qualities. Doubts and indecision, self-deception or deceiving others.
In real-time astrology, the Sun is transiting Earth-sign Taurus. We also have a stellium in Taurus. The Sun, Mercury and Venus are joined by Uranus in the sign of the Bull. Uranus is Aquarius’s ruling planet. This stellium forms a square with Saturn. We need freedom and change. But we also need stability and accountability. There is tension in the knowledge that it’s very difficult to have both.
Towards the end of this forecast period, we have a Full Moon in Water-sign Scorpio on April 26th. We may experience a flash of awareness and insight. Intensifying imbalances and flaws. Awareness of others will help smooth the way. Combined with the energy of this week’s card, unflinching clarity is a necessity.
On April 27th Pluto retrogrades in Earth-sign Capricorn.This retrograde lasts through October 6th. Complicated, intense and heavy energy prevails. We can assess how we use (or abuse) our power. We may hide our motives and be less open and direct with others. This may provide a strategic advantage. In light of this week’s energy extra caution is necessary.
Misuse, darkening or the shadow energy of this card includes craftiness. Slyness, cunning and even paranoia. Keep your cards close to your vest. But, outright mistrust and unnecessary secrecy will further complicate things this week.
Let’s focus on the positive aspects of this energy. Accept possible disappointment but also turn knowledge and information to shrewd advantage.
Power colors: bright yellow, blue, silver, violet and white.
Power stones: zircon, amber, malachite, pearl, rock crystal and moonstone. Wear as jewelry or carry as power stones to help create harmony. Clarity comes to situations where there’s more going on than meets the eye.
Power metals: uranium – impossible to get or wear. Silver (perfect to wear). Silver conducts the most heat and electricity of all the metals. It is also the most reflective. Consider those qualities for amping up the positives of this week’s energy.
Power fragrances: pine, poppy, lily, white rose, gardenia, jasmine, myrrh and sandalwood. These enhance the Aquarian’s ability to tap into information and knowledge at a moment’s need.
Power foods: foods prepared with poppy seeds, coconut or wintergreen (mint). Tea brewed with jasmine or mint. All provide the same beneficial effects already described.
