Weekly Tarotcast™: 6-26-18 through 7-03-18
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, Mars begins its retrograde transit of Air-sign Aquarius on June 26th. The energy of this transit makes it difficult for us to act unless we are totally committed and believe completely in the situation or cause we’re dealing with. Combined with the energy of this forecast period, we are strong supporters of our cause or idea but we may spend more time thinking about it than doing something about it.
The Sun is transiting Water-sign Cancer. As the Sun moves through this sentimental, emotional, and somewhat secretive sign, we may find our focus shifting to home, family and how we establish and maintain security – including our financial and material resources.
We’ll experience a Full Moon in Taurus’ fellow Earth-sign Capricorn on June 28th. This energy reminds us to pay attention to our commitments in the outside world – school, work, career and community. While we’re very much appreciating and enjoying our home life and families, we’ll need to balance that with fulfilling our responsibilities, taking care of business, behaving maturely and stepping fully into a leadership role.
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.
