Weekly Tarotcast™: 10-13-15 through 10-20-15
Three of Wands
The weekly Tarotcast card is the Three of Wands. This week we’ll be poised at the brink of success, and we will definitely benefit from a shot of positive group energy. We’ll be successful in our interaction with others, be inspired, and connect with a talent pool of valuable people and resources to take us into the next phase of our endeavors. We will need to make sure that our energy stays collaborative and not coercive, though.
On the kabalistic Tree of Life, this card represents the formula 3: sephiroth or sphere 3, Binah (Understanding, the sphere of Saturn, and the Divine Feminine or Yin energy); in the suit of Wands (Atziluth, the archetypal world; the element of Fire – the will;) plus the Sun in Aries (more on that in a moment) equaling Virtue.
Astrologically, this card corresponds to the Sun in Aries and rules from 10 to 20 degrees Aries, or March 31st to April 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.
This energy is powerful, confident, creative and lively. We can take the initiative in some nearly-brilliant ways and make our dreams of success a reality.
In real-time astrology, just prior to this forecast period we experienced Jupiter trine Pluto (exact on October 11th) and a New Moon in Aries’ opposite sign of Libra (October 12th). And of course, Mercury is now direct (hooray!)
Jupiter trine Pluto will be in effect until June 2016. This is an extremely strong and positive energy for business, increased influence, matters of faith, and deep insight. We are highly motivated and ambitious, with strong powers of persuasion. We seek to improve ourselves, and we succeed. All of this energy is very much in harmony with the Sun-in-Aries energy of this week’s card.
The New Moon in Air-sign Libra allows us to focus on our partnerships, giving them proper attention, and to work on our negotiation and collaboration skills. This offers a nice balance to Aries’ full-speed-ahead, me-first energy.
Aries’ ruling planet Mars aligns with Jupiter on October 17th by conjunction and by parallel on October 19th. We will have plenty of enthusiasm and physical energy. We’re more inclined to take chances and feel driven to expand in some way – whether in our personal lives, relationships or business. Our sense of timing is excellent – we’ll likely feel strong and adventurous, competitive and daring. As long as we avoid overdoing things, it’s a great time for positive advancement.
Misuse, darkening or the shadow energy of this card includes overdoing anything, acting-out, creating drama, and engaging in attention-seeking behaviors as well as steam-rolling over others and stealing or not crediting their ideas and input.
Let’s focus on putting positive energy into constructive action. We have the perfect conditions to manifest our developing confidence and self-assurance, taking opportunities to achieve success.
A little home alchemy: Power colors this week include orange, red, scarlet, crimson, amber, yellow and gold (for both the Sun and Aries).
Ruby, bloodstone, diamond, amber, topaz and garnet worn as jewelry or carried as power stones will help us do the right things for the right reasons – the meaning of “Virtue” and this week – as the old saying goes, “virtue is its own reward”.
Gold is this week’s metal – yellow or rose gold, in this case – strong, beautiful and eternal. Wear it to find the right tools, formulate the right plan and utilize the right attitude.
Scent your home, bath and body with rose, juniper, orange and frankincense to experience optimism and strength.
Foods prepared with sunflower seeds, galangal, orange, rosemary, cinnamon and clove or some gin (juniper!) or beer (hops!) enjoyed responsibly will provide the same beneficial effects.
