Six of Disks: Weekly Tarotcast™ – Free Tarot Reading
5-18-21 through 5-25-21
The Six of Disks is this week’s Tarotcast card. This suit is also called Pentacles and Coins. We can overcome financial crises and experience welcome material gains this week.
The energy of this card is great for acts of generosity on the emotional as well as the material level. We’re likely to have a better understanding and tolerance of other people. The Six of Disks is great for harmonizing and balancing opposing forces. We’ll have plenty of chances to use that energy to our own benefit and the benefit of others.
The natural, pure and material success of Earth is in transition. The Moon’s phases are always changing, so it’s best to remember that all things pass.
The Number 6
The sixes of the Minor Arcana restore harmony and balance. The fives cause disruption. They cleanse, regenerate and create conflict in a stable system. Afterward, the sixes bring affirmation, confirmation, validation and solidification.
On the Tree of Life this card represents the formula 6. Sephiroth or sphere 6, Tiphareth (Beauty). The sphere of the Sun. Energy in completely balanced manifestation. In the suit of Disks (Assiah, the material world). The element of Earth. Our physical bodies, senses, material assets and resources. Combined with the Moon in Taurus equals Success.
This card corresponds to the Moon in Taurus and rules from 10 to 20 degrees Taurus, or May 1st through May 10th. 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 is exalted in Taurus and the best lunar qualities have a chance to shine here. It’s a happy place, so we may want to slow down a little to enjoy our successes.
In real-time astrology, the Sun completes its transit of Earth-sign Taurus. It enters Air-sign Gemini on May 20th. Mobile, mutable Gemini is the sign of the mind. Information is everything – learning, gathering, sharing and communicating. We look to expand our knowledge. However, we’re likely to take on too much and may scatter our energy. Use the energy of this week’s card to stop and smell the roses, at least for a minute or two.
“I want to thank you for so many gifts, you gave with love and tenderness…”
Saturn retrogrades in Air-sign Aquarius on May 23rd. This retrograde lasts until October 10th. This is a good time to review and assess our obligations. Responsibilities and commitments need attention but not action. Although we may experience fear and self-doubt; the energy of this week’s card helps us balance our strengths against our weaknesses.
“Ain’t it good to know you’ve got a friend…”
We have a Full Moon Total Lunar eclipse coming up on May 26th in Fire-sign Sagittarius. This is the energy of expansion. We look beyond our routines and habits. Focus on what you want more of and act on it. But be sure to avoid exaggeration and over-dramatizing.
Misuse, darkening or the shadow energy of this card includes greed and stinginess. Manipulation by withholding or granting material resources. Controlling others using material or financial resources. “Killing the golden goose.”
Let’s focus on love, understanding, support and charity. Even if you can only give a little – find a worthy cause close to your heart and contribute to it. Or give someone a material, emotional or spiritual helping hand.
Power colors: gold, amber, blue, silver, orange, olive and deep indigo blue.
Power stones: sapphire, emerald, turquoise and jade. Wear these as jewelry or carry them as power stones to help stay grounded. We’ll use our resources well this week.
Power metals: copper (Venus) and silver (the Moon). Mix and match to make a spiritual (and fashionable) statement.
Power fragrances: violet, rose, poppy, gardenia and jasmine. Also, lotus, myrrh, sandalwood, coconut and wintergreen (mint). These help us stay in the spirit of generosity this week.
Power foods: foods prepared with poppy seeds, lotus root, coconut and wintergreen. Beverages made with coconut (Pina Coladas, anyone?) or wintergreen/mint (Mojitos maybe?). All provide the same beneficial effects already described.
