Ten of Disks: Weekly Tarotcast™ – Free Tarot Reading
1-12-21 through 1-19-21
The Ten of Disks is this week’s Tarotcast card. This card is also called the Ten of Coins and the Ten of Pentacles. This week’s energy focuses on financial prosperity. It is building on a firm foundation for our personal and family life. We find ways to grow our assets and resources. We also find creative ways to put money to good use through wise investing or smart budgeting.
Mercury’s creative force applied to the material and physical resources of Earth. Dynamic wealth in action.
The Number 10
The Tens of the Minor Arcana represent completion. They are the manifestation and culmination of the energy of their suits and elements.
The Ten of Disks is special. It is the very last Tarot card: the point at which spirit manifests completely as matter. This is the point which signals the reintegration of matter into spirit. It is a complete picture of the cycle of regeneration. Unlike any of the other small cards including the Tens of the other suits, the Ten of Disks has a unique mission. From the very bottom of the cosmos, it must link to the inmost secret of creation. It then reincarnates at the very top of the Tarot cycle. Its job is nothing less than to regenerate the world.
On the Tree of Life, the Ten of Disks represents the formula 10. Sephiroth or sphere 10, Malkuth (Kingdom), the material world. In the suit of Disks, the element of Earth. Assiah – our physical bodies. Also, material assets or resources. Plus, Mercury in Virgo equaling Wealth.
The Ten of Disks card corresponds to Mercury in Virgo. It rules from 20 to 30 degrees Virgo, or September 12th through September 22nd. If your birthday falls on or between those dates, you’ll be feeling this week’s energy even more than the rest of us. Mercury co-rules both Gemini and Virgo.
In real-time astrology, the Sun completes its transit of Earth-sign Capricorn. It moves into Air-sign Aquarius on the last day of this forecast period. Mercury is currently transiting Aquarius.
On January 13th we have a New Moon in Capricorn. It aligns with Pluto and ambitions are strong. We look for order, structure and solid planning. We know that timing is everything. This is a perfect time to set practical goals. Approach solutions with maturity and self-control. Use common sense and think ahead.
“She works hard for the money – so hard for it, honey, She works hard for the money so you better treat her right…”
Uranus turns direct in Taurus on January 14th. For now, all major planets are direct! Keep in mind that Mercury will retrograde on January 30th. As Uranus’ momentum builds we seek self-expression. There is temptation to take risks or rebel. We embrace change and trust our own instincts. We’re able to decide and influence. We aren’t victims of change but its agents.
“I’ll buy you a diamond ring my friend if it makes you feel alright. I’ll get you anything my friend if it makes you feel alright. ‘Cause I don’t care too much for money, money can’t buy me love…”
On January 17th Jupiter (in Aquarius) squares Uranus (in Taurus). This is restless, rebellious energy. Stirring things up for the hell of it, or foolish risks might be appealing now. We’re driven by desire for freedom. We may shirk responsibilities or look for ways to shift blame. On the plus side, innovative thinking can work wonders.
Avoid starting things you can’t finish. Break down large tasks into steps or stages. Don’t over-committing yourself.
Misuse, darkening or the shadow energy of this card includes greed for money. Hoarding material possessions. Lack of understanding of the connection between the physical and the spiritual worlds.
Let’s focus on discovering the value of everyday things. The understanding that wealth is more than how much money we have in our wallets or our bank accounts.
Power colors: yellow, purple, grey and indigo for Mercury as well as green and plum for Virgo.
Power stones: carnelian, jade and jasper. Wear these as jewelry or carry them as power stones to help you feel comfortable, secure and generous.
Power metals: platinum (how’s that for feeling rich?) and of course Mercury which we can’t wear or handle. Wear platinum if you’re lucky enough to own it.
Power fragrances: valerian, lavender, lily of the valley and lilac. These bring a sense of abundant well-being into your environment.
Power foods: foods prepared with rosemary, parsley, dill, peppermint and lemongrass. All provide the same beneficial effects already described.
