Tarot Clarity – Vesta in Gemini – Four of Cups

March 20th 2020: Vesta enters Gemini(her 11th house) after 40 weeks retrograde in Taurus(10th), a transit about gathering resources, and this ingress represents the next stage, which is generosity. Maslow’s Hierarchy is the most accessible model for understanding this progression: when our material needs are met, our ability to be present flourishes with ourselves and in our relationships.

The Four of Cups is a card of family, those stable circles where love is given freely. Vesta in Gemini as the Four of Cups is a symbol of plenty, the wind elements increasing the oxygen supply and expanding the billowing flame, in the containment of the hearth.

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.

sekhmet.gemini.eight.swords

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.

Tarot Clarity – Venus in Gemini – Temperance

Venus enters Gemini, bringing the energy of teenagers experimenting with fashion, learning to drive, dreaming about college and traveling. In Gemini, Venus is especially thrilled by variety, options, choices, freedom.

Temperance represents making adjustments that restore wholeness. Temperance comes after Death in the major arcana: when Death’s clear-cutting is complete, the spirit of Temperance brings life back into balance.

venus.gemini.temperance

Venus in Gemini as Temperance is a symbol for all things having their right place, at the right time, in the right amount- with the understanding that the rightness is fluid depending on the whims of our desires. A basic recipe for cookies will ask for three cups of flour, two cups of sugar, one cup of butter, and two eggs- but it can be customized infinitely to suit any appetite.

Tarot Clarity – Mercury in Gemini – Three of Cups

Mercury enters Gemini, home sign of the androgynous messenger, embodying the spirit of ideas, inspiration, cognition, and communication.

mercury.gemini.three.cups

The Three of Cups is the card of the first crush, where our inner latent potential is activated by something or someone “other” causing a sudden explosive bloom of new feelings.

400 craters on Mercury are named after artists- writers, musicians, sculptors, painters- messengers of divine inspiration. The first spacecraft to enter orbit around Mercury was called MESSENGER, and at the end of its mission it crashed onto the planet, marking the surface on April 30th 2015, and on that same day Mercury entered Gemini.

Mercury in Gemini as the Three of Cups is whimsical yet volatile, creative and indecisive, curious and flirtatious, dangerous and fragile. It is a symbol of our desire to respond and participate with the things that touch us and move us. It represents the passionate use of communication and art to make your mark.

Tarot Clarity – Sun in Gemini – Ten of Cups

Gemini is the sign of multiplication, quantity, polarity, and multiple dimensions- the sign of everywhere, the sign of all. The Gemini life force is vigorous, capricious, and earnest.

sun.gemini.ten.cups

The Ten of Cups is the card of consummation, the experience of emotional fulfillment that characterizes an achievement. The Ten of Cups is not about finishing or ending something, it is about the satisfaction of accomplishment.

Gemini Season is about the world of options; options require discernment. The Ten is a card of non-attachment. The Ten of Cups representing the Gemini Sun is a reference to the great challenge of Gemini, which is to see every possible point of view, to be aware of every nuance, to swim amongst the infinity of thoughts and feelings, and learn to let it all pass by without getting carried away, personally identifying with too many conflicting energies, and burning out.

Tarot Clarity – Mars in Gemini – The Magician

March 30th 2019: Mars enters Gemini, shifting gears from the slow and steady pace of Taurus into a breezier energy, impromptu arousal, pursuit on a whim. Mars in Gemini isn’t attracted to familiarity, it craves the rush of discovering new sources of stimulation.

The Magician is a card about choices. The Magician is the interface between individual consciousness and infinity, and it communicates the idea that every choice we make is literally spellcraft- a choice is an action that manifests a specific reality out of all available possibilities.

mars.gemini.magician

Mars in Gemini as the Magician symbolizes detachment from form and outcome, it is not seeking any specific result from its actions, but it is driven by the motivation to cast spells that are fresh, unusual, intriguing, and dramatic.

Tarot Clarity – Apophis in Gemini – Four of Pentacles

March 24th 2019: Asteroid Apophis enters Gemini, the god of chaos trickery in the realm of the wind, directionless, omnidirectional, gentle breeze and lethal tornado.

Consciousness seeks patterns to construct order out of chaos. Chaos is the source, the origin of all structures we create with our minds. And when two negative numbers are multiplied together, the result is positive.

The Four of Pentacles is about bodily integrity and the stability of the physical form. The phoenix burns at the center of the four corners, the unseen process of cellular division and destruction that sustains life. Homeostasis is the defining quality of being alive, to strive for stability and security within a chaotic universe.

apophis.gemini.4pentacles

Apophis in Gemini as the Four of Pentacles is the never-ending stream of chaotic sensory information that enters the hypothalamus.

Apophis in Gemini as the Four of Pentacles is a symbol of how our pattern-seeking thoughts can be a factor in how the nature of chaos manifests into the order of flesh.
