Weekly Tarotcast™: 6-04-19 through 6-11-19
This week’s Tarotcast card is the Universe, known in many decks as The World. 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. When The Universe tarot card appears, our focus shifts toward a more cosmic, universal consciousness.
On the Tree of Life, this card 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 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.
This card 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 Air-sign Gemini (through June 21st). Mercury is transiting Water-sign Cancer (through June 26th). The Saturn themes from last week continue to influence us this week. Obligation, responsibility, accountability and karma are priorities. Saturn is currently transiting its home Earth-sign of Capricorn and is in retrograde. This may help ease some of our tensions and tensions and burdens during this forecast period.
When Venus enters Air-sign Gemini on June 8th we’ll speak less and let our actions show how we’re feeling. We’re curious and sociable, learning and observing through our interactions with others.
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 the best of Saturn’s responsibility and accountability 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.
