Weekly Tarotcast™: 3-17-15 through 3-24-15
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, and energy in completely balanced manifestation), in the suit of Disks (the element of Earth – (our physical bodies, the material world, assets and resources; Assiah) plus the Moon in Taurus (more on that in a moment) equaling Success.
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, Venus enters Taurus (the sign she rules) on March 17th
where she remains through April 11th. This is comfortable, sensual and contented energy at its best. It’s also a good time to pay attention to the things (and people!) we value.
Venus gets a nice supportive boost from Neptune (Pisces’ ruling planet) on March 23rd and 24th. This will give us plenty of opportunities to get close to the people we most care about.
We also have a New Moon total Solar Eclipse in Pisces on March 20th. This energy awakens our spirituality and vision. Our imaginations, as well as our capacity for feeling and acting with compassion are heightened.
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.
