Weekly Tarotcast™: 1-29-19 through 2-05-19
Nine of Disks
This week’s Tarotcast card is the Nine of Disks. This suit which is also called Pentacles or Coins, taps us into the energy of material comfort, financial security, and inner peace. We find a measure of stability in our finances. We’re able to enjoy and appreciate the material comforts of our homes, pets, and whatever adds physical and sensual comfort to our lives. Nature’s green, growing things – a garden, a patch of grass, a houseplant – all help to create a pleasing, harmonious environment.
The energy of this card also points us to ways in which our self-sufficiency can bring us a sense of fulfillment and completeness. We enjoy our existing relationships. Even if we are looking to develop a romantic relationship or closer friendships we can be content with our own company. We find that we don’t need the constant reassurance of companionship to feel at ease.
When the element of Earth – physical energy – is influenced by practical, orderly behavior, we benefit from good luck through good management. Satisfaction for reaping a bountiful harvest is our reward, and we can completely enjoy it.
The Number 9
The Nines of the Minor Arcana bring things to a conclusion. They represent integration, fulfillment and attainment for their respective suits and elements, in this case Disks and Earth energy – the material world. When it comes to anything with material value – actual money, our finances, property, and other physical assets and resources – this card is a welcome sight!
On the Tree of Life, this card represents the formula 9: sephiroth or sphere 9, Yesod (meaning Foundation – sphere of the Moon, where energy crystallizes), in the suit of Disks (Assiah, the material world; the element of Earth – our senses and physical body) plus Venus in Virgo (more on that in a moment) equaling Gain.
This card symbolizes Venus in Virgo and rules from 10 to 20 degrees Virgo, or September 2nd through September 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. There is an element of sheer good luck – coupled with good planning and management – in this card. Unexpected job and money opportunities can fall in our laps this week, as well as chances for partnerships and joint ventures that spark our creativity and enthusiasm.
In real-time astrology, the Sun is transiting Air-sign Aquarius (through February 18). On January 31st Saturn (in its home Earth-sign of Capricorn) sextiles Neptune (in its home Water-sign of Pisces). This energy can help us bring order and structure to our goals and dreams. We may feel a renewed sense of purpose in our work. Combined with the energy of this week’s card, turning our dreams into reality is within our reach. Avoid complacency or settling for less.
When Venus enters Capricorn on February 3rd we may feel the need to impress others with our practicality and realistic approach to life and love. We’re inclined to put away some savings or make investments for future gain.
To close out this forecast period, the New Moon in Aquarius on February 4th sparks us to try out new ideas and to seek fresh perspectives. Be open to new and unexpected opportunities coming your way.
Misuse, darkening or the shadow energy of this card includes greed, dullness or ignorance of spirituality, and reliance on blind luck alone to positively change our circumstances – a form of laziness.
Let’s focus on the positive gains we can make this week and be grateful for the element of luck that helps us gain security on the material – and spiritual – levels.
Power colors: sky blue, greens from pale spring green to emerald, rose pink, citrine yellow and plum purple.
Power stones: carnelian, jade, jasper, opal, sapphire and lapis worn as jewelry or carried as power stones will enhance our sense of comfort, safety and stability this week.
Power metals: copper and platinum are this week’s metals. I’d definitely go for the platinum if you’re fortunate enough to own some – and after this week, you just might be!
Power fragrances: scent your home, bath and body with sweetly earthy scents like chamomile, jasmine, lavender, lily, violet, rose, and plumeria to feel blessed and lucky.
Power foods: foods prepared with apple, strawberry, orange and vanilla, or teas brewed from chamomile or jasmine, will provide the same beneficial effects.
