Weekly Tarotcast™: 11-29-16 through 12-06-16
Six of Disks
The weekly 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, and we’re likely to have a better understanding and tolerance of other people. The ability to harmonize and balance opposing forces is especially suited to the energy of this card, and we’ll probably have plenty of chances to use that energy to our own benefit and the benefit of others.
On the kabalistic 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) plus the Moon in Taurus (more on that in a moment) equaling Success.
The sixes of the Minor Arcana restore harmony and balance to their respective suits and elements. After the disruption of the fives – cleansing, regenerating, reassessing and creating conflict in a previously stable system – the sixes bring affirmation, confirmation, validation and solidification.
Astrologically, this card corresponds to the Moon in Taurus and rules from 10 to 20 degrees Taurus, or May 1st through May 10th, 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 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, we have a Full moon in Fire-sign Sagittarius on the first day of this forecast period, November 29th. This aspect brings out the adventurer and explorer in us. We focus on goals that give us courage, allow us to expand our horizons, and help us to gain confidence and optimism. This forecast period is a great time for deepening our faith, nurturing our hopes and honoring our visions. This energy nicely complements that of this week’s card. The Sun entered Sagittarius on November 21st (through December 21st). This transit shifts our focus to a more spiritual, universal perspective. We may question and explore. Our visions are encouraged by belief in ourselves and the daring to go out and meet life head-on.
Venus (Taurus’ ruling planet) is currently transiting Taurus’ fellow Earth-sign, Capricorn (through December 7th) and we place a high value on security and stability. This is a good time for establishing and nurturing our relationships with business partners and/or co-workers, and it’s also favorable for forming positive connections with people who support our ambitions.
Misuse, darkening or the shadow energy of this card includes greed, manipulation by withholding or granting material resources, controlling others using material or financial resources, and inadvertently “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 helping hand materially, emotionally or spiritually.
A little home alchemy: Power colors for this week include gold, amber, blue, silver, orange, olive and deep indigo blue.
Sapphire, emerald, turquoise and jade worn as jewelry or carried as power stones will help us remain grounded in positive pursuits and beneficial uses of our resources this week.
Copper (Venus) and silver (the Moon) are this week metals – mix and match to make a spiritual (and fashionable) statement.
Scent your home, bath and body with violet, rose, poppy, gardenia, jasmine, lotus, myrrh, sandalwood, coconut and wintergreen (mint) to stay in harmony with the spirit of generosity this week.
Foods prepared with poppy seeds, lotus root, coconut and wintergreen; as well as beverages made with coconut (Pina Coladas, anyone?) or wintergreen/mint (Mojitos maybe?) will provide the same beneficial effects.
