Weekly Tarotcast™: 10-22-19 through 10-29-19
10 of Pentacles (Disks)
The 10 of Pentacles (Disks) is this week’s Tarotcast card – a free Tarot reading for you. This card is also called the 10 of Coins and in my favorite deck – the 10 of Disks. 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.
The creative force of Mercury applied to the material and physical resources of Earth make wealth dynamic and active.
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.
This Ten 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 10 of Pentacles (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.
This 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. Many people forget that Mercury rules the sign of Virgo (as well as Gemini). Mercury’s creativity and cleverness serve practical and productive purposes in Virgo. Our intelligence and willingness to work smarter rather than harder nets big rewards.
In real-time astrology, the Sun moves into Water-sign Scorpio on October 23rd. It joins Venus and Mercury transiting this passionate and mysterious sign. The New Moon in Scorpio on October 27th encourages us to step out of our comfort zone. Hidden agendas are revealed and anything that’s been concealed is going to come to light during this period. This is a perfect time to concentrate on and develop a project or important relationship. This energy complements the energy of this week’s card. It adds depth and purpose to our lives. Mercury will retrograde in Scorpio on October 31st, just following this forecast period.
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.
