Weekly Tarotcast™: 12-09-14 through 12-16-14
Nine of Wands
The weekly Tarotcast card is the Nine of Wands. This week’s energy is focused on momentum and drawing on the reserves of energy and strength we’ve been storing up. Great strength is indicated here, but the strength lies in our ability to keep rolling with the changes, constantly balancing and adjusting to maintain our forward motion – sort of like riding a bicycle.
On the kabalistic Tree of Life, this card represents the formula 9: sephiroth or sphere 9, Yesod (meaning Foundation – sphere of the Moon and the crystallization of energy) in the suit of Wands (the element of Fire – the life-force of the soul, and our will) plus the Moon in Sagittarius (more on that in a moment) equaling Strength.
Astrologically this card represents the Moon in Sagittarius, and rules from 10 to 20 degrees Sagittarius, or December 3rd through December 12th so if your birthday falls on or between these dates, you’ll be feeling this week’s energy even more than the rest of us.
The Moon in Sagittarius reminds us that when playing defense effectively, we must be mobile, and stability is actually gained and maintained through motion.
In real-time astrology, the Sun continues remains in Sagittarius until December 21st, inspiring visions of adventure and daring, prompting questions of a universal nature. This period is especially positive and powerful because the Sun in Sag is in mutual reception with Jupiter. Our energy and moods are happy on December 7th – 9th, and 14th. We are eager, ready and willing to make changes.
It’s probably not too soon to mention that Saturn enters Sagittarius on December 23rd where the Lord of Time will continue through June 2015, move back into the last degrees of Scorpio until September 2015, then re-enter Sagittarius and remain until December 2017. Saturn in Sag brings a time for restructuring of our educational methods, belief systems, thought patterns and our approach to handling responsibilities.
Misuse, darkening or the shadow energy of this card includes contradiction, vacillation and indecision rather than adapting to changing circumstances, and the inflicting of psychological or emotional harm.
Let’s focus on the positive energy of forward motion, and progress made through intellectual and physical harmony.
A little home alchemy: Power colors this week include indigo, pale blue, silver and violet for the Moon, along with yellow, green and dark blue for Sagittarius.
Amethyst, topaz, rock crystal, moonstone and opal worn as jewelry or carried as power stones will help keep us moving along in a stable, steady way.
Silver and tin are this week’s metals: bright, malleable and good alone (silver) or in combination with other metals (tin) to provide strength and stability.
Scent your home, bath and body with carnation, sage, coconut, jasmine and gardenia to adapt to your changing environment gracefully and consciously.
Foods prepared with sage or coconut, and tea brewed from jasmine will provide the same beneficial effects.
