The Universe Tarot: Weekly Tarotcast™ – Free Tarot Reading
12-10-19 through 12-17-19
The Universe Tarot card is this week’s Tarotcast, known in many decks as The World Tarot card. The Universe tarot card is the last card of the Major Arcana. Expect success this week; completion, fulfillment & synthesis in key areas of your life.
In work matters this can mean the completion of a long-term project. We may see the effects of global influence in our business dealings. In our personal and romantic lives, this card indicates expansion.
Expect positive changes especially if things have been somewhat dull or stagnant. Attend to duties and responsibilities beyond the present situation. We will gain insight into the workings of karma in our lives. Our understanding of time – past, present and future – will grow. Our focus shifts toward a more cosmic, universal consciousness.
On the Tree of Life, the Universe Tarot travels Path 32. It joins sephiroth or sphere 9, Yesod (Foundation) to sephiroth or sphere 10, Malkuth (Kingdom). Its Hebrew letter is Tau, meaning “cross,” the last letter of the Hebrew alphabet. The cross is an ancient symbol. It symbolizes the arrangement of the universe into four directions. It also encompasses the entire universe. Tau is the furthest development of the divine made manifest in the physical world. It represents infinity.
As the last card of the Major Arcana, The Universe Tarot represents the completion of the Great Work. The Fool’s journey begins as the zero moves from nothingness to manifestation. The entire Universe is that manifestation. Its purpose accomplished, it is ready to return to the divine All-Nothingness.
The Universe Tarot is the planetary trump of Saturn and the elemental trump of Earth. Contained in this card are the cycles of both Being and Time. This is the momentary pause after much activity. It is the feeling of rest after hard work, even when we know that there is still more work to do. We are in a state of wholeness and unity.
In real-time astrology, the Sun continues its transit of Fire-sign Sagittarius. The Full Moon in airy Gemini on December 12th brings a sense of urgency in communication. We may want to make an important announcement or convey an important message. The focus is on travel and communication now.
On December 14th Saturn in Earth-sign Capricorn is quintile Chiron in fiery Aries. Saturn rules the sign of the Sea-goat and is at home there. We confront our own fears with courage. Watch out for closed-mindedness and rigidity.
On December 15th Jupiter in Capricorn trines Uranus in earthy Taurus. We are open to new approaches and attitudes. New energy invigorates our lives. Good fortune and many benefits are ours if we’re willing to explore the unusual and think outside the box.
This transit is great for group activities. Also favored are writing, publishing and public speaking.
Both Capricorn and Taurus tend to be conventional and traditional thinkers. An open-minded and innovative approach courtesy of Uranus expands our opportunities. Business ventures, money and career flourish.
Misuse, darkening or the shadow energy of this card includes superficiality. Appearances are deceptive and this focus is on them rather than substance. Also laziness and depression.
Let’s focus on positive solutions and the satisfaction of a job well-done. Completion and wholeness. Enjoy the sense of returning home.
Power colors: indigo, iridescent blue-black, navy blue for Saturn. Earthy colors of russet, olive, amber and golden-yellow.
Power stones: onyx, obsidian, jet, garnet, rock crystal, quartz, jasper and azurite. Wear these as jewelry or carry them as power stones. You’ll combine Saturn’s responsibility with the grounded, practical and nurturing qualities of Earth.
Power metals: iron and lead. Not great for wearing, but perfect symbols of strength and endurance.
Power fragrances: valerian, comfrey, musk, patchouli, cedar, honeysuckle and magnolia. These will keep you energized, centered and successful this week.
Power foods: foods prepared with thyme and sage. Also any whole grains, nuts and seeds. All provide the same beneficial effects already described.
