Astrology Meets Tarot!
“Last night I stayed up late playing poker with Tarot cards. I got a full house and four people died.” –Stephen Wright
Now, Venus is fixing to square Pluto, shortly before opposing Saturn. That means undeniable strife and you can expect ghost sightings under these conditions. The thing to remember always, though, is that you have choices—not so much in the cards drawn, but always in how you play them.
When I drew for today’s Tarot and got another repeat of yesterday, I opted to make it a three-card spread. I mean, what else am I going to do? Obviously, the card wants to be heard, a little louder now.
"I am but your servant, oh inscrutable Tarot," I say, mostly to appease the Tarot Gods. They like that. Consider it’s Mind / Body / Spirit time!
For mind, we have the inverted Ten of Pentacles (Mercury in Virgo), body is the Nine of Swords (Mars in Gemini) and spirit is the inverted Nine of Wands (Mars in Sagittarius). Mars will have his say! With two nines and a ten, though, we’re into the end of a cycle in preparation for new beginnings. With Pentacles, Swords and Wands all represented, it touches on what we experience, what we think, and what we do.
The dissatisfactions, all the ways you feel short-changed in love or in life, the alienation from what you value? This gives you nothing but sleepless nights and, eventually, ill health. It runs you down physically, making it very difficult to endure whatever challenges you face. Trying to think your way out of it isn’t especially effective here, leading to a vicious circle of agitated thought. No help there.
I’d suggest short-circuiting this cycle. Instead of looking at what’s broken and crying over helplessness to fix, look at what’s right in your life and fight to keep and grow it. Defend your most important values. Let go of what’s not serving without fanfare, favoring instead activity and perspectives that help you feel stronger and shored up. That will help keep you from losing it while riding things out.
If you’re dealing with ghosts, you’ve got perfect opportunity to fondly welcome loving memories or exorcise stubborn demons. Your call. Make your choices wisely, and your spirit will endure.
How are you doing, getting through the night?
