Weekly Tarotcast™: 4-23-19 through 4-30-19
Six of Cups
This week’s Tarotcast card is the Six of Cups. The Six of Cups tarot card represents pleasure in all its many forms. It symbolizes well-being and harmony. Natural desires operating without effort or strain including physical and sexual pleasure. With this card we find ease and satisfaction. Here there is joy, fulfillment and emotional renewal. These may connect to our fondest wishes, memories and nostalgia for the past.
The Sun penetrating and fertilizing the element of Water releases tremendous power. Creativity is born from the feminine principle energized by union with the male. This card symbolizes the union of Yin and Yang. Deep satisfaction results.
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; energy in complete, balanced manifestation. In the suit of Cups (Briah) the creative world; the element of Water, our emotions. Plus the Sun in Scorpio (more on that in a moment) equaling Pleasure.
This card symbolizes the Sun in Scorpio. It rules from 10 to 20 degrees Scorpio or November 2nd through November 12th. If your birthday falls on or between those dates you’ll be feeling this week’s energy even more than the rest of us. The Sun brings out the warm, sensuous and even fun-loving side of the Scorpion.
In real-time astrology, the Sun is currently transiting Earth-sign Taurus, Scorpio’s polar opposite sign. Taurus’ pleasure-loving nature complements this week’s card. And all of the polar opposites of the zodiac attract when it comes to romance, love and sex.
Scorpio’s ruler Pluto retrogrades in Earth sign Capricorn on April 24th, followed by Saturn’s retrograde in Capricorn (its home sign) beginning April 29th.
Pluto’s retrograde with its complex intensity, causes us to hide our desires for power and control. We may also be evaluating and exploring how we use our power.
Saturn’s retrograde will find us reviewing and reassessing our responsibilities and commitments. We may struggle with feelings of guilt and self-doubt. Both Saturn and Pluto retrograde in Capricorn bring contemplative and introspective experiences.
Misuse, darkening or the shadow energy of this card includes escape from reality. The experience of emotional imprisonment in or by the past.
Let’s focus on rich, positive emotional experiences. Use your creative power this week!
Power colors: yellow, orange, golden yellow, amber and red; also blue-green and dark brown.
Power stones: topaz, ruby, jet, amber carnelian, diamond and tiger’s eye. Wear these as jewelry or carry as power stones. They will heighten your physical senses and creative imagination.
Power metals: gold, iron and plutonium. Only gold is wearable. In this case yellow gold is your best choice. The strength of iron and the reactivity of plutonium represent our creative power.
Power fragrances: heather, sweet basil, marigold, rosemary, acacia, and cedar. Also orange, cinnamon, clove, and frankincense. Stimulate your imagination and connect with your physical senses this week. Feeling seductive? You’ll be dynamite, so be careful!
Power foods: use sweet basil, sunflower seeds, galangal, oranges, rosemary, cinnamon and clove. Also beverages brewed from hops (beer!) or juniper (gin!), in moderation of course. All provide the same beneficial effects already described.
