Weekly Tarotcast™: 3-24-15 through 3-31-15
Two of Disks
The weekly Tarotcast card is the Two of Disks. This suit is also called Pentacles and Coins. This card represents the ways in which we’re able to maintain balance and harmony in the midst of change. Like a juggling act, we’re successfully managing to keep all the balls in the air or keep all the plates spinning while we constantly adjust for internal and environmental fluctuations. This is the kind of multi-tasking that actually works – not by trying to do many things simultaneously (and doing none of them very well), but by making skilled, split-second changes in priority and attention to keep everything going at the proper pace.
On the kabalistic Tree of Life this card represents the formula 2: sephiroth or sphere 2, Chokmah (meaning Wisdom – the sphere of the Zodiac, and Divine Masculine or Yang energy), in the suit of Disks (the element of Earth – (our physical bodies, the material world, assets and resources; Assiah) plus Jupiter in Capricorn (more on that in a moment) equaling Change.
Astrologically, this card corresponds to Jupiter in Capricorn. It rules from zero to 10 degrees Capricorn, or December 22nd through December 30th 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. Jupiter in Capricorn energy is at its best when it can organize and lead through a disciplined, step-by-step plan of action.
In real-time astrology, Jupiter is retrograde in Capricorn’s polar opposite sign of Leo until April 8th. Saturn (ruling planet of Capricorn) turned retrograde on March 14th until August 2nd. When Saturn is retrograde we may question, review and reassess our responsibilities and commitments.
This can be a challenging time for generating momentum. Some of the changes occurring may be internal rather than external, so it’s a good time to be quiet and introspective rather than taking on new tasks or trying to change our environment. Look within.
Misuse, darkening or the shadow energy of this card includes the more negative aspects of instability: indecision, not adapting to cyclical changes, and a lack of direction.
Let’s focus on the positive side of instability (and yes, there really is one!) by being flexible and adaptive while keeping our eyes on the goal or purpose we’re aiming for.
A little home alchemy: Power colors this week include violet, blue, rich purple and yellow for Jupiter as well as indigo, black and grey for Capricorn.
Sapphire, amethyst and diamond as well as onyx, jet, garnet and opal worn as jewelry or carried as power stones will enhance the beneficial effects of Jupiter in Capricorn this week and minimize the less positive energy.
Lead and tin are this week’s metals, neither particularly good for wearing but both useful when alloyed (and allied) with other metals to increase flexibility and endurance.
Scent your home, bath and body with carnation, poppy, heliotrope, honeysuckle and cedar to stay alert and flexible as you adapt and adjust to changing priorities and demands.
Foods prepared with clove, sage, cinnamon, mint and nutmeg as well as the tasty (and healthy) members of the nightshade family: potatoes, tomatoes, bell peppers, hot peppers and eggplant will provide the same beneficial effects.
