XVI The Tower (Mars/Aries & Pluto/Scorpio) Spiritual Tarot Interpretations Discussion
I am unable to change others, and it is not my responsibility to “Change the World”. The best method within my power to inspire and promote positive change, is in being a living example of the qualities of character I value the most, practising both kindness and respect.
Temperance is an alchemical card. Medieval alchemy was fundamentally about trying to transform the essence of things, usually from something base to something refined. The most obvious and well known example is the attempt to turn lead into gold, but more broadly, alchemy can be understood as the attempt to purify and refine, not only with physical objects (such as metals) but with the human soul itself. Spiritually then, XIV Temperance is about the transformation of the soul in this manner and specifically about taking parts of the soul and concentrating them into something whole and beautifully unique.
VII Cups is a very important card. The unique emotional power of fantasy found within Seven of Cups, when aligned in Truth with Source/God, I’ve deemed the three essential ingredients harnessed in the alchemy of manifestation. Experiencing the feelings, and knowing the joy that will be yours again, once your fantasised hopes and earnest desires become realised materially in the physical realm.
The emotional intensity enjoyed via visualisations, imagination, and fantasy found in the 7C seems to be the much sought after missing ‘key” (being pre-imagined feelings) which bridges the enormous divide between intention and actual material manifestation.
Would you invite a known thief into your home? Allowing this thief to blatantly steal your hard earned luxuries and items right in front of you? So why do we allow insidious and negative thoughts to make themselves comfortable, and at home within our heads, consuming our minds and robbing us of all joy and happiness? The power to choose positivity is an authority within each one us. Choose wisely.
This card is all about winning at any cost and involves the game players, cheaters, pretenders, controllers, frenemies and energy vampires we all have to interact within our lives. 6W is associated with propaganda, self-interest, hidden agendas, using other people and their resources for self benefit, and most often is my red flag card signifying ‘bullshit’ or ‘narcissist’ if 6W is representing a person.
“Right place, at the right time, with the best attitude” for today.
Will the Sun illuminate some trickery, or reveal some deliberately concealed Truths today? 7P says all will come to light ‘eventually’, the importance of matters that occur today, may not be realised until a later time.
XIX The Sun + I The Magician & Shadow Card: VII Pentacles ‘Failure’ (RWS) Bide your time… Success not instant will feel like failure, patience and thoroughness is required.
So together these two cards talk about goodness manifesting, determined to find truth, will and determination to be good, speaking your truth freely, acting out of goodness etc or the flip side maybe the big kid who’s a fast talker, or acting impulsively and/or childishly.
I’ve often heard Four of Cups (4C) referred to as the ‘drinking’ card, associated with excessive partying, over indulgence, boredom and inebriation, but haven’t connected any of that previously with the RWS 4C lazy scene, where nothing much seems to be going on at all. The Four of Cups refusal of present day, and his current reality, that includes gifts laden with potential for growth and experiencing new states of being, implies that this figure is still back in the Three of Cups (3C) ‘party in full swing’ mode, and obstinately refusing to move at all.
Numerically The Magician is 1 and Six Pentacles is 74=75=7+5=12=1+2=3 Number Three dominates today: the first celebration number, and is social, relaxed, creative and happy. I – The Magus of Power I’ll address our shadow card first today, as The Magician and I have had a rocky relationship right from my Tarot beginnings. Whilst I […]
Strength cards softly, softly, loving approach juxtaposes the Knight of Swords harshness perfectly.
We would rather be searching for our own true happiness, then continue living a counterfeit existence. We All, unfortunately, are Unable to Unsee Truth.
I realised the importance of Uranus or God as being 0 and outside of ourselves (the beginning), and Uranus (God) being within Man as number 22 additionally, 22 being the Master Builder number (also referred to as the Holy Spirit in Christianity) and 22 is the number of Major Arcana cards within the 78-cards of the Tarot deck.
That was difficult to explain, and I had great difficulty wrapping my head around these new concepts. I’ve always loved numbers for their Universal Truth and inability to lie.
Through researching my new Tarot numbering system my number Loving has only strengthened, with a new Passion for Sacred Geometry.
