Tarot Clarity – Mercury in Virgo – Queen of Wands

August 29th 2019: Mercury enters Virgo, the planet of rational thought stimulating the higher brain functions that require cognitive skills and the voluntary effort of concentration, including organization, adaptation, and memory retrieval. Pisces is the subconscious, and Virgo is the frontal lobe.

The Queen of Wands is the everyday priestess/witch, independent and free from restrictions on her self-expression and growth, in full ownership of her garden and her craft. She has mastered her creativity and sexual energy, using the wisdom of discretion to decide when, where, how and why to unleash its wild powers.

Mercury in Virgo as the Queen of Wands is like a sex education instructor for schoolchildren, introducing a clinical approach to a carnal world. Passion can be self-destructive if we can’t see the forest for the trees. Mercury in Virgo is all about the details that clarify the big picture, and the Queen of Wands shows how this placement can translate the earthy intensity of desire into the code of divine order.

Tarot Clarity – Mercury in Taurus – Queen of Cups

Mercury leaving Aries and entering Taurus is a shift that encourages more processing between thinking and speaking. In Aries, Mercury uses words reactively and experimentally. In Taurus, Mercury learns to use words with intention and strategy. A high level of committment to intention and strategy during the learning process is at the root of what is commonly perceived as stubbornness.

The Queen of Cups is immersed in the world of emotion, completely in control of her experience. She shares the joys and sorrows of all the world. She stamps her feet in anger. She kneels in prayer. She luxuriates in the rhythms of the Heart.

mercury.taurus.queen.cups

Mercury in Taurus as the Queen of Cups represents becoming so thoroughly secure in our own feelings that it increases our ability to use logic and reason. It represents being so in tune with the environment that we can consciously craft our communications for maximum effect. The fixity of the evolved Bull is not immovable, instead a force of forward motion like a freight train.

Tarot Clarity – Sun in Taurus – Queen of Pentacles

The Sun enters Taurus, fixed earth sign of acquiring and accumulating, establishing and stabilizing, a walled garden filled with row after row of sprouts. For most of the northern hemisphere this is the season of the return of warmth.

Pentacles represent the physical realm- bodies, clothes, houses, cars, computers, money, food- the factors that shape our inner self-image and external identity.

The Queen of Pentacles has maximum awareness of the sensory experience, immersed in the present moment. Her intense focus on The Way Things Are makes her resistant to compromise. She is what Alejandro Jodorowsky calls “the dog that defends the sun buried in her heart at the cost of her life.”

The Sun in Taurus as the Queen of Pentacles represents the stubborn bull: absorbed in the individual experience of living in a body, weighed down by the inertia of unwillingness to change.

Tarot Clarity – Psyche in Aquarius – Queen of Swords

March 15th 2019: Asteroid Psyche begins her transit through Aquarius that will last all year until December 26th, due to her retrograde that lasts from June 20th to September 24th. Psyche’s orbit is in strong resonance with Earth, orbiting the Sun once in exactly five Earth years. During this five year cycle she goes retrograde four times in the same four signs; she retrogrades in Aquarius on years ending with 4 and 9.

The Queen of Swords brandishes her weapon while seated with a hand over her belly, a mirror image of major arcana III The Empress. Where the Empress is active, representing gestation and the fluid nature of creativity that takes the shape of its container, Queen of Swords is receptive, representing the defensive power of intellectual presence, that still center of inner knowing that cannot be swayed by a world designed to overstimulate with distractions to obfuscate the truth. The Queen of Swords is the eye of the storm.

Psyche in Aquarius as Queen of Swords cuts through the fog with clarity and wisdom, secure in her knowledge of who she is and what she is here to do- a pure soul seeking the light.
