Tarot Clarity – Sekhmet in Cancer – The World

July 27th 2019: Mother of the Gods, Mother of the Dead, Mother in the Horizon of the Sky, Sekhmet in Cancer emphasizes her role as the origin of our multiple dimensions, she is the one who opens and closes the doors of birth and termination.

The World is the final card of the major arcana and represents the fulfillment of totality. The first card, The Fool, shows a figure stepping out into the unknown, willing to be shaped by whatever life may bring across their path. The figure in the center of The World is stepping into total enlightenment with wisdom gained from completing every possible experience.

Tarot Clarity – Venus in Cancer – Two of Swords

July 3rd 2019: The Goddess of Love settles down in mother’s moon cave, activating an alliance of divine feminine energies: wisdom, intuition, poise. In Gemini, Venus gets to climb every tree. In Cancer, Venus can see the whole forest.

The Two of Swords is the card of the everyday subconscious. It refers to any activity in the mental realm in the absence of conscious thoughts. The hidden processes that provide the foundation for our ideas and beliefs are represented by the flower and leaves exploding in the center of the card, riches bubbling up from under the surface of the mind.

venus.cancer.two.swords

Venus in Cancer as the Two of Swords represents the daydreams that reveal our true desires and the psychic visions that reveal our true power. It embodies the Yin ideal of finding wholeness in emptiness, allowing things to be as they are, observing, and nurturing, but never imposing our will.

Tarot Clarity – Sun in Cancer – Hanged Man

June 21st 2019: The Solstice is the moment the Sun reaches its maximum height- 23 degrees north declination. This means that if you are at 23 degrees north latitude on Earth, the Sun will be directly overhead on Summer Solstice. The Sun can never be directly overhead anywhere north of the Tropic of Cancer.

The Sun stays at 23 degrees north declination through the entire first decan of Cancer; 22 degrees for the 2nd decan. The Solstice is the longest day of the year, and the sign of Cancer is the long slow release where the Sun shines its warmest for the vast majority of Earth’s plant kingdoms in full bloom.

The Hanged Man is usually interpreted as an intermission, or being put on hold. At its essence it represents fullness- a state where there is nothing left to achieve, nothing left to do. Whether he tied himself up, or was tied against his will, what’s done is done. The next card is Death.

sun.cancer.hangedman

The Hanged Man for Sun in Cancer represents family bonds, the comfort of knowing you’ll always have each other, the tension of being perpetually connected. It takes effort to sustain a full deep breath, but the exhalation requires no effort at all.

Tarot Clarity – Mercury in Cancer – Two of Cups

Mercury in Cancer is a unique placement in the sign ruled by the Moon because it is the only heavenly body that has a faster apparent motion than the innermost planet. When Mercury is in Cancer, the emotional layer of the lightbody receives more stimulation than the mental. This brings feelings into a sharper focus, which makes them harder to control when they are more prominent than our thoughts, but can also be clarifying in the way that it influences us to communicate differently.

mercury.cancer.two.cups

The Two of Cups is the card that symbolizes being ready for love. The Three of Cups is when a new love appears, but the Two is the moment of individuation where the innocent selfishness of childhood gives way to an awareness of a desire for connection.

The Two of Cups represents how Mercury in Cancer can make us better listeners, more sensitive in our choice of words, honoring our own vulnerability with compassion for others, and seeking cooperation and mutual support.

Tarot Clarity – Mars in Cancer – Page of Wands

May 15th 2019: Mars enters Cancer, a tricky placement for the planet of overt action to be confined to a secure refuge. The Martian spirit says “the best defense is a good offense” but in the crab shell of Cancer, Mars energy is divorced from the attack, surrounded by shields and armor. Aggression in Cancer is usually passive, and sometimes passionately violent.

The Page of Wands is the card of hesitation. It represents having identified a dream but not trusting oneself enough to fully pursue it. Or it can represent impostor syndrome- the fear of believing that you might actually be great.

mars.cancer.page.wands

Mars in Cancer as the Page of Wands symbolizes the unique frustration of the planet of Yang in the sign of the Mother, and an acknowledgement of the humility it requires to learn the lesson of this transit. Mars always knows what he wants to do, but in Cancer, he often does not know how to do it, or simply lacks faith in his own abilities. This gives us the opportunity to rest, clarify our purpose, take inventory of resources, study the maps, and invest in our closest relationships- which increases our confidence and makes us more effective workers.

Tarot Clarity – Apophis in Cancer – The Chariot

April 25th 2019: Apophis enters Cancer, the safe borders of our personal space violated by the chaos trickster. In the cardinal water sign he orchestrates emotional disorder, which exaggerates imbalances in the intimacy of family space with frustrations about unmet needs.

The Marseille Chariot is fascinating: it is led by two horses going in opposite directions- one is aware of the conflict, the other is oblivious; the horses have no reins; and the Chariot itself is built into the ground like a house. It is not a vehicle that travels across the earth, the vehicle is connected to the earth and travels through the days and nights as the earth turns.

The horses can represent the heart and the mind, or any two factors that are out of balance with each other in ways that make us feel like we are struggling and not getting anywhere.

apophis.cancer.chariot

The Chariot is a card that can indicate guranteed success. It is also a card that reflects our perceptions of insurmountable obstacles, unyielding inertia, and feeling stuck. The Chariot represents someone who knows they have a place in the world, but has not yet “arrived.”

Apophis can be a cruel god, but in my experience his cruelty is never meaningless. He creates lessons that reveal the fragility of our illusions about order and purpose. In Cancer, he knocks us out of alignment with ourselves in ways that inspire us to try to leave our entire lives behind and start over. But the Chariot stays in one place. The feeling of being stuck comes from the belief that we need to be somewhere else, which is often a disguise for the belief that we need to be someone else.

Apophis in Cancer as the Chariot is about learning how to bloom where you are planted, against all odds. No matter where you go, there you are.

Tarot Clarity – Juno in Cancer – Six of Swords

April 20th 2019: The Queen of Heaven comes home to the nest of Cancer. Juno rules over the principle of boundaries in relationships, which is supported in the sign of home, secure borders, relatives/relations, and cohesive bonding.

The Six of Swords is the essence of resonant perfection that intellectualizes a couple of sentences into a poem. An idea’s impact, power, and meaning depends on how it is framed in any given context. The card literally looks like a moat, protecting- and isolating- the flower bursting forth in the center island.

juno.cancer.six.swords

Juno in Cancer as the Six of Swords represents good ideas, excellent communication, and improving relationships. Even when we are not on the same wavelength with other people we can often find a resonance with them. Juno identifies areas of excess and weakness in our boundary maintenance procedures, which helps us clarify our own frequency so we can tune into those subtle rhythms and be better relatives.
