Tarot Clarity – Sun in Libra – Four of Wands

September 23rd 2019: Sun enters Libra, Fall Equinox, the moment when long days are overtaken by long nights, the season when Earth’s deciduous vegetation transforms from green to shades of gold, crimson, peach, caramel, plum.

sun.7.libra.four.wands

The Four of Wands represents the manifestation of desire, starting with a vision and giving it a stable form, and Libra is the cardinal air sign. From this perspective the physical realm exists only to provide a structure for symbols that we can use to communicate our inner truth, interpret our role in the world, and live our dreams.

The Sun in Libra as the Four of Wands shows that the essence of true beauty shines brightest when the outer expression is a true reflection of an enchanted imagination.

Tarot Clarity – Sun in Virgo – Page of Cups

August 23rd 2019: The Sun leaves Leo, the sign of its essential expression, and enters Virgo, where solar codes are translated and ritualized into the cycle of Earth’s seasons. The lessons of the sacred flame can be found in the progression from Leo to Virgo- fixed fire to mutable earth- the lessons of embodiment.

Everyone alive today between the ages of 8 and 80 has fixed star Regulus, the Heart of the Lion constellation, on their natal chart at 29 Leo, marking the end of an era that lasted for 2,160 years where the human heartspace was imprinted with the archetype of kings and crusades. Regulus shifted from Leo to Virgo in November of 2011, and now the Lion Heart codes are received as archetypes of earth priestesses. Our task in human history is to make the heartspace transition from a Leo expression of domination, hierarchy, and pride, to a Virgo expression of ritual, substance, and belonging.

Virgo is the natural home of Ceres, the goddess often attributed to the bland keyword “agriculture.” But she is the goddess of the mysteries of the grain, and her role is in the effect on human consciousness when crops are planted and a relationship is formed with the earth, investing knowledge and effort into the land for best outcomes, knowing you are beholden to natural forces beyond your control, and always making accommodations for the variance of the seasons: planting, harvest, loss, repeat.

sun.virgo.page.cups

The Page of Cups is a symbol of someone who is not sure how they really feel. Bertrand Russell famously said “The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, and wiser people are so full of doubts.” The Page of Cups embodies these wise doubts. He has taken the lid off his cup and is peering inside, questioning. This is a card for someone taking a new look at how their emotions filter their experience of reality, for the first or for the 100th time. It can be equally relevant for someone who suppresses their emotions and wants to learn how to open up, as for someone whose emotions are messy and volatile and wants to learn how to hold themselves accountable.

Sun in Virgo as the Page of Cups shows the importance of continually taking inventory of your emotions, because there is work that must be done here, to weave a masterpiece of life from a million tiny threads, to take infinite words and create recipes with a simple grammar, to bring divine order to earth. Doing this Virgo work has a funny way of exposing all challenges to your sense of secure emotional maturity, requiring a Page of Cups mentality to self-examination.

A King is someone whose power comes from the respect of many followers. A Priestess is someone whose power comes from self control and commitment to ritual.

Tarot Clarity – Sun in Leo – Empress

July 22nd 2019: The Sun enters Leo, the sign it is said to rule- the sign of the Lion Heart. It’s highest form of expression is a healthy ego dedicated in service to the upliftment of all consciousness and life. The Leo Sun needs to be noticed. It needs to be loved, praised, comforted, respected, made to feel special. This is not selfishness. These are fundamental human needs like clothing and shelter.

The Empress is the card of authentic expression, natural creation, and, very specifically, feeling confident about something with which we have no previous experience, like a young woman who has just given birth to her first child.

sun.leo.empress

The Sun in Leo as the Empress shows us that the quest to mature, actualize the self, and achieve sovereignty is not about us, not about our individual accomplishments and reputations. Our radiance and greatness is not a unique function of our own egos, but a ray of light that shines through each of us from a divine source.

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 – 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 – 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.”

sun.taurus.queen.pentacles

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 – Sun in Aries – Five of Wands

March 20th 2019: Sun enters Aries, Spring Equinox, the tipping point when sunlight outshines the darkness of winter. Warmth returns, plants awaken, and a commotion of new life erupts.

sun.aries.5wands

The Five of Wands describes the feeling of excitement that bubbles up when perception shifts, and what was previously perceived to be a limit is now seen as an invitation, perhaps even a dare, to go further

Aries energy is a smoldering fire that explodes into a backdraft when a window opens to a fresh source of inspiration. The Five of Wands representing the Sun in Aries describes the experience of abandoning strategy to ride a wave of passion where ever it leads.
