Weekly Tarotcast™: 10-09-18 through 10-16-18
Ten of Disks
The weekly Tarotcast card is the Ten of Disks (this suit is also called Pentacles or Coins). This week’s energy is focused on financial prosperity as well as building on a firm foundation for our personal and family life. Materially, 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.
The Tens of the Minor Arcana are the completion, full manifestation and culmination of the energy of their respective suits and elements.
This Ten is special, as it is the very last Tarot card: the point at which spirit manifests fully as matter, and 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 somehow link to the innermost secret of creation and reincarnate at the very top of the Tarot cycle. Its job is nothing less than to regenerate the world.
On the kabalistic Tree of Life, this card represents the formula 10: sephiroth or sphere 10, Malkuth (meaning Kingdom – the material world) in the suit of Disks (the element of Earth, Assiah – our physical bodies, and material assets or resources) plus Mercury in Virgo (more on that in a moment) equaling Wealth.
Astrologically this card corresponds to Mercury in Virgo. It rules from 20 to 30 degrees Virgo, or September 12th through September 22nd, so if your birthday falls on or between those dates, you’ll be feeling this week’s energy even more than the rest of us. Many people forget that Mercury rules the sign of Virgo (as well as Gemini). Mercury’s creativity and cleverness are turned to practical and productive endeavors in Virgo, so our own intelligence and willingness to work smarter rather than harder reaps big rewards this week.
In real-time astrology, the Sun continues its transit of Virgo’s next-door-neighbor, Air-sign Libra (through October 23rd). On October 9th Mercury enters Water-sign Scorpio (through October 31st) and we look deep beneath the surface of events. The exploration of hidden or previously untapped aspects of practical and material matters is highlighted during this forecast period. We may discover assets or resources that were unknown to us, but work to our benefit.
Misuse, darkening or the shadow energy of this card includes greed for money and material possessions; it also indicates a lack of understanding of the connection between the physical and the spiritual worlds.
Let’s focus on discovering the value of everyday things and understanding that wealth is more than how much money we have in our wallets or our bank accounts.
A little home alchemy: Power colors this week include yellow, purple, grey and indigo for Mercury as well as green and plum for Virgo.
Carnelian, jade and jasper worn as jewelry or carried as power stones will help us feel comfortable, secure and generous.
This week’s metals are platinum (how’s that for feeling rich?) and of course Mercury – which can’t be worn or handled safely. Wear platinum if you’re lucky enough to own it; or mindfully aspire to it – you never know what you can attract until you try.
Scent your home, bath and body with valerian, lavender, lily of the valley and lilac to bring a sense of abundant well-being into your environment.
Foods prepared with rosemary, parsley, dill, peppermint and lemongrass will provide the same beneficial effects.
