Tarot Clarity – Venus in Libra – The Pope

September 14th 2019: Venus enters Libra, the sign that she rules with the elegance of Yin, alluring and receptive. Libra is a Yang sign, and of all the Yang signs Libra is the most aligned with the values of emotionless formal logic, which provides a sharply defined container that can enhance the sensual capacities of Venus.

venus.7.libra.pope

As humans, we exist at the intersection of overlapping spheres, between the physical and the spiritual, the animal and the enlightened. The Devil card is a symbol of the bridge through the lower instincts to prehistoric collective fears and ancestral DNA memories.  The Pope card is a symbol of the bridge through higher consciousness to the cosmos, to the bliss of enlightenment, which can often be experienced as a visit from an angel, or speaking directly to God.

Venus in Libra as The Pope represents the divine proportions of beauty. The perfect balance of shape and shadow, refined taste and subtle flair, strikes us as rationally, objectively beautiful. The mathematical principles of visual appeal are androgynous, which requires a healthy flowing balance of Yin and Yang, neither dominating nor submissive.

Tarot Clarity – Venus in Virgo – The Lover

August 21st 2019: Venus enters Virgo, getting right to the heart of feminine perfectionism, the maternal work ethic, emotional investment in a structured routine of countless seemingly insignificant service acts that cumulatively add up to love. Venus in Virgo is the stay at home mom who calls herself a Domestic Engineer, Director of Child Development. She gets so much fulfillment from executing the duties of meeting others’ needs that she can easily intellectualize away her own desires with “shoulds” and “should nots.”

venus.virgo.lover

The Lover is a card about ambiguity and confusion. It’s about how different points of view on a single situation can create multiple conflicting narratives. It’s about secrets and rumors, or being caught red handed in a taboo act. When we truly abandon ourselves to the divine Lover, we often find ourselves in situations where we make choices that transcend sociocultural expectations and the moral principles we were raised with- choices that can have a tendency to disappoint, shock, or outright harm the people who depend on having predictable, practical relationships with us.

The Lover for Venus in Virgo shows the friction between being reliable and following your heart. An important lesson for this transit and placement is really understanding that there are always, always multiple points of view, but there is very rarely ever a best one. It is the maturing of feminine energy from feeling pressured to make “correct” decisions, to the realization that there is no right or wrong, just perspectives.

Tarot Clarity – Venus in Leo – The Sun

July 27th 2019: Venus enters Leo. On the surface, this transit is about beauty. On a deeper level we can see that it is not so much about external appearance, rather it is all about standing in the spotlight. Receiving that level of attention is terrifying for many who have low self esteem. Venus in Leo is the blueprint for inner confidence and self-love that radiates from within and empowers us to soak up all the attention, all the love.

venus.leo.sun

The Sun is a card of illumination and awareness, depicting a blazing sun over two child-like creatures. There are two similar child-like creatures on The Devil card, they seem happy and content and yet they are chained together. When The Devil and The Sun are viewed side by side, we can see how The Sun eliminates all shadows and reveals the chains to be an illusion. The creatures are no longer in denial and can now see the work that needs to be done.

The Sun card is also a symbol of male fertility, which is powerless without the presence of an “other” to receive it. A spotlight is only needed when a star is on stage.

The Sun for Venus in Leo tells a story about affinity, synergy, and interdependence. The shallowest possible expression is vanity, selfishness, and delusions of grandeur, because the values are limited to surface level beauty and reputation. The full spectrum experience is about divinity and humanity: learning to acknowledge that our worth is not a product that we can earn, and that all of our greatness comes from a sacred source that flows through us; and also that as humans we depend on each other as mirrors to reflect our greatness back to ourselves to assist us in developing and maintaining a healthy self-image.

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 – 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 – Venus in Taurus – Seven of Cups

May 15th 2019: Venus enters Taurus, maximum earth sensuality, rich garden dirt caked under fingernails, hot sunlight on bare skin, belly full.

The Seven of Cups represents the essence of kindness and generosity, the limitless and robust inner wealth that finds authentic joy in being shared with others.

venus.taurus.seven.cups

Venus in Taurus as the Seven of Cups represents developing a mature emotional body that emits a positive presence, which shows us that active emotional connection arises naturally where inner treasure is abundant. Seeking out emotional connection without self-value is a deranged Yin that leaves us vulnerable to receive and carry whatever emotions are projected onto us. Venus in Taurus is about getting our hands in our own golden soil, cultivating the riches of self awareness, self-discipline, and self-esteem.

Tarot Clarity – Venus in Aries – Seven of Wands

Venus in Aries. The planet of Yin enters the sign of Yang, the maximum masculine expression for the embodiment of female energy.

The Seven of Wands is the actualization of a dream, the inspired action that turns the divine awareness of the six into the perfect manifestation of the eight.

venus.aries.seven.wands

Venus in Aries as the Seven of Wands is a symbol of insemination, which is dominated even conceptually by the male perspective of ejaculation and triumph. But when the female egg is confronted with a river of sperm, there is no passive yin reception. She actively destroys them as they approach.

Aries energy makes it difficult for the feminine to feel satisfied. Here, she must learn to harness the power of yang and say no a thousand times in order to fully open up for one yin welcoming yes.

Tarot Clarity – Venus in Pisces – Knight of Swords

Venus enters Pisces, joining Neptune in the sign of his rulership. Venus in Pisces is sublime, mysterious, beckoning toward intangible pleasures, the spooky beauty of a mermaid’s ghost.

The Knight is the pinnacle of the suit, carrying its themes to new frontiers, which represents the crossing beyond the borders established by the King, and into the unknown. The Knight of Swords carries the fulfillment of a consummated cognitive pursuit into an undiscovered territory of emotion.

Venus in Pisces as the Knight of Swords represents a decision to peacefully and willingly let go of intellect and logic, if only temporarily, to allow inspiration, divination, and maybe even illusion to guide us to a deeper and more complete truth about what our hearts long for.

Tarot Clarity – Venus in Aquarius – Ace of Wands

Venus enters Aquarius. Building on the practical logistics of achieving goals in Capricorn, Venus now has the freedom to pursue the unconventional desires closest to her heart. Pablo Picasso explained this shift perfectly with his famous quote “Learn the rules like a pro (Capricorn) so you can break them like an artist (Aquarius)”

venus.aquarius.ace.wands

The Ace of Wands is the infinite potential from which all possibilities of creative passions emerge, appetites not yet indulged nor denied. Underneath our conscious awareness of our desires, there are primal urges behind the goals and dreams we pursue. Venus in Aquarius defies convention to honor these urges.
