Weekly Tarotcast™: 3-05-19 through 3-12-19
Six of Disks
This week’s Tarotcast card is the Six of Disks. This suit is also called Pentacles and Coins. We can overcome financial crises and experience welcome material gains this week.
The energy of this card is great for acts of generosity on the emotional as well as the material level. We’re likely to have a better understanding and tolerance of other people. The Six of Disks is great for harmonizing and balancing opposing forces. We’ll have plenty of chances to use that energy to our own benefit and the benefit of others.
The natural, pure and material success of Earth is in transition. The Moon’s phases are always changing, so it’s best to remember that all things pass.
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 (meaning Beauty – the sphere of the Sun, energy in completely balanced manifestation) in the suit of Disks (Assiah, the material world). The element of Earth – our physical bodies, senses, assets and resources – combined with the Moon in Taurus (more on that in a moment) equals Success.
This card corresponds to the Moon in Taurus and rules from 10 to 20 degrees Taurus, or May 1st through May 10th. 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 is exalted in Taurus and the best lunar qualities have a chance to shine here. It’s definitely a happy place, so we may want to slow down a little to enjoy our successes.
In real-time astrology, the Sun is transiting Water-sign Pisces. On the first day of this forecast period, Mercury will retrograde in Pisces (March 5th through March 28th). The usual retrograde cautions apply. Uranus begins a long-term transit of Taurus on March 6th. We’ll find new approaches for handling money and resources. Smart, progressive business and financial decisions are easier. We free ourselves from old and outworn material constraints. We can review and reassess priorities and values.
The New Moon in Pisces on March 6th brings a fresh start. Our spirituality awakens. Experiences spark our vision and imagination. We are compassionate and open-hearted.
But, we will need to stay in close touch with reality. Because this New Moon occurs so close to the Mercury retrograde and Uranus transit of Taurus, clear judgement is a must.
Misuse, darkening or the shadow energy of this card includes greed and stinginess. Manipulation by withholding or granting material resources. Controlling others using material or financial resources. “Killing the golden goose.”
Let’s focus on love, understanding, support and charity. Even if you can only give a little – find a worthy cause close to your heart and contribute to it. Or give someone a material, emotional or spiritual helping hand.
Power colors: gold, amber, blue, silver, orange, olive and deep indigo blue.
Power stones: sapphire, emerald, turquoise and jade worn as jewelry or carried as power stones help us remain grounded. We’ll use our resources well this week.
Power metals: Copper (Venus) and silver (the Moon). Mix and match to make a spiritual (and fashionable) statement.
Power fragrances: scent your home, bath and body with violet, rose, poppy, gardenia and jasmine. Also, lotus, myrrh, sandalwood, coconut and wintergreen (mint) help us stay in the spirit of generosity this week.
Power foods: foods prepared with poppy seeds, lotus root, coconut and wintergreen. Beverages made with coconut (Pina Coladas, anyone?) or wintergreen/mint (Mojitos maybe?). All will enhance the benefits described.
