Weekly Tarotcast™: 7-09-19 through 7-16-19
Six of Wands
This week’s Tarotcast card is the Six of Wands. We’ll be experiencing the successful completion of a project or task this week. This energy is most welcome. It reminds us that whatever obstacles, difficulties or setbacks we’ve endured – we won. Rewards come for our hard work and persistent efforts. We are confident that what we have achieved is repeatable. We can build on this success again and again.
Here, the element of Fire is the steady heat and light that warms and illuminates. The Will in action manifests in perfect balance and harmony.
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, where energy manifests in a completely balanced way. In the suit of Wands (Atziluth). This is the archetypal world. The element of Fire; the Will. Plus Jupiter in Leo equaling Victory.
This card represents Jupiter in Leo. It rules from 10 to 20 degrees Leo, or August 2nd through August 11th. If your birthday falls on or between these dates, you’ll be feeling this week’s energy even more than the rest of us. Jupiter in Leo is expansive, boisterous, warm and generous. The triumphant power of this card is like that of the noble Lion or Lioness. Claiming your rightful place as ruler.
In real-time astrology, the Sun is transiting Water-sign Cancer (through July 22nd). This is Leo’s next-door neighbor sign. Jupiter remains retrograde in its home sign, Leo’s fellow Fire-sign Sagittarius. Jupiter will turn direct on August 11th.
Mercury turned retrograde in Leo on July 7th (through July 31st). Conversations, plans and projects begun around the third week of June may come up again for revision and review. Mars in Leo is ready to dive into action. Instead, the wiser course is to slow down. Look back and retrace your steps. Patience, patience, patience!
The July 16th Full Moon partial Lunar eclipse in Capricorn
forces us to examine areas of lack and want. Our public lives, careers and reputations may come under scrutiny. Because this Lunar Eclipse occurs when the Moon aligns with Pluto, it’s complicated. We want to take urgent action. A wait-and-see approach serves us better. This is a time of high drama and emotions are high.
Misuse, darkening or the shadow energy of this card includes being presumptuous. Overstepping others’ boundaries with our assumptions. Avoid the desire to create a personality cult with oneself as the central figure. Success is unlikely. Even if it were, the triumphant optimism that is natural to this week’s energy would be completely lost.
Let’s focus on tackling the week with enthusiasm! Both the giving and receiving of trust and loyalty are keys to our success. Enjoy your successes and victories. Accept the recognition and reward you’ve earned. Stay centered in self-confidence without arrogance.
Power colors: rose pink, violet, and purple for Jupiter as well as deep purple, grey and amber for Leo.
Power stones: ruby, diamond, rose quartz, amethyst, and amber. Wear as jewelry or carry as power stones to feel optimistic and grounded. Then, celebrate your victories!
Power metals: Leo gold and Jupiter tin. Go for the rose or yellow gold (for obvious reasons)!
Power fragrances: poppy, sage, heliotrope, honeysuckle, hyssop and cedar. These will help you stay confident about victory without arrogance or egotistical self-promotion.
Power foods: foods prepared with anise, cinnamon, clove, mint, nutmeg and sage; or hops (think beer!) All provide the same beneficial effects already described.
