Tarot Clarity – Mercury in Libra – Eight of Cups

September 14th 2019: Mercury enters Libra, a transit that embodies gregarious, magnanimous, diplomatic communication. In the sign of the scales, Mercury brings our focus to our awareness of how we are received, and places the highest priority on rapport.

The Eight of Cups is the card of emotional mastery, which is the experience of truly feeling oneness with everything. Where the Four of Cups can be seen as a symbol of merging with a partner in a sacred marriage, the Eight of Cups is a symbol of merging with the universe.

Mercury in Libra as the Eight of Cups is a symbol of being ultimately open minded and being able to relate to everyone, having authentic interest in the different experiences that produce different personalities and beliefs. Due to having an idealized vision of what communication could be, it can be a challenge for this placement to learn to stop judging others for not living up to its extremely high standards.  But when living its truth, Mercury in Libra cares deeply about every voice having an equal chance to be heard.

Tarot Clarity – Sekhmet in Gemini – Eight of Swords

June 27th 2019: Sekhmet, Lady Of The Many Faces, Mother Of Images, The Aware, Sekhmet Of The Knives enters Gemini, the sign of the stream of consciousness. “Floats like a butterfly, stings like a bee.”

Swords are traditionally used as the suit of the mental realm, a double-edged blade used to attack and defend. Some modern Tarot traditions use the suit of Crystals to depict a vision of the mental realm that is multifaceted, inherently valuable, nonviolent, and organically from the Earth. The eight-pointed figure that appears in the center of the Eight of Swords is actually a flower, but I choose to see it as a polished crystal, like a mind that has been perfected in meditation.

The Eight of Swords is the card of intellectual perfection, stillness. It represents the mastery of emptiness required for receptivity in the mind. The Eight of Swords for Sekhmet in Gemini is a symbol of Sekhmet’s power to swallow the noise of a chaotic brain, making way for a more peaceful cerebral flow where we are able to consider all thoughts as they pass by without needing a dogmatic belief system to classify them as good or bad.
