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 – 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.6.virgo.queen.wands

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 – Juno in Virgo – Six of Wands

August 23rd 2019: Juno enters Virgo, the queen of heaven as the executive director for Earth’s 3D matrix and the laws governing energy exchange. Nothing slips past her attention, every detail is taken into consideration and accounted for. Cleanliness is next to godliness.

The Six of Wands is the card of the true artist. Before reaching this stage, the spirit seeks outside of itself for inspiration, and yearns to be a part of something beautiful. Possibilities must be considered and education pursued. There must be committment, practice, challenges, and risks. The Six of Wands represents the master who has transcended all of that and creates effortlessly from their inner connection with the divine flow.

juno.virgo.six.wands

Juno in Virgo as the Six of Wands is a big picture symbol that shows all Earth systems functioning in harmony, all matter built by an alphabet of elements, all beings defined by genetic codes, all things unfolding as they should. To be able to align with this divine flow requires us to develop healthy boundaries, which are powerful coping mechanisms for the inherent intractability of 3D life.

Tarot Clarity – Apophis in Libra – Three of Wands

August 9th 2019: The dark madness of Apophis comes home to Libra, the realm of balance- which is a concept, not a creature- the scales are the only inanimate zodiac symbol. Balance is just an idea of relation to a core or center, it is not an actual thing, it is not a steady state that can be permanently achieved. Balancing requires navigation of chaos: assessing and accounting for infinite variables in a constantly changing environment.

The Three of Wands is a card that refers to a burst of creative energy that springs forth naturally, not from planning, not towards a goal, just fresh new urges. It can often indicate where energy is being wasted, or where the wad is being blown so to speak- because it is difficult for many to learn how to control the power of their creative impulses. But it is simply a symbol of the urgency of nature.

apophis.libra.three.wands

One thing that stands out to me about the Three of Wands is that I see it in three dimensions, it is the X-Y-Z axis of the firmament, with the flowers emerging from the zero point and the leaves curling into space. Apophis in Libra as the Three of Wands shows how the chaos of the creative urge is an essential factor in the stability of existence in this Universe. Life, uh, finds a way.

Tarot Clarity – Eros in Scorpio – Knight of Wands

August 3rd 2019: Eros finishes his transit though Libra where the Cupid archetype brings first awareness of desire for the other. When Eros enters Scorpio, he brings awareness of what lovers do- fluid bonding in the dark. As Jeff Goldblum says in The Fly, “I’m talking about penetration beyond the veil of the flesh! A deep, penetrating dive into the plasma pool!”

The Knight of Wands is the only Knight that rides a white horse, which is a symbol of fulfilled desires. The arrival of a white horse indicates that prayers have been answered and wishes granted. But mostly, the Knight of Wands embodies the idea that once we get what we want, we don’t want it anymore, either because we are too immature to advance to the next level and are stuck craving the experience of the chase, or because we are mature and can expand new dreams on the foundation of the ones that came before.

eros.scorpio.knight.wands

Eros in Scorpio as the Knight of Wands shows the development from having feelings for someone, to actually being with them. It shows how basic it is to crave sexual intimacy and how advanced it is to be capable of the emotional and intellectual intimacy that makes the physical act so compelling in the first place.

Tarot Clarity – Mercury in Leo – King of Wands

June 26th 2019: Mercury’s shift from Cancer to Leo is a transit of vivid passion and intensity, where forceful desires to be seen and heard erupt to a new level of I AM expression.

The King of Wands represents mastery over primal desires and urges. He is untouchable by criticisms of his words and deeds because his actions are in complete alignment with the flow of his creative passions, cultivating his inseminations into a strong and healthy progeny. His royal essence speaks for itself.

mercury.leo.king.wands

The King of Wands is the highest expression of Mercury in Leo: When we have the wisdom of self-awareness, our very existence radiates our innate value and unique life force. Rather than feel the need to assert ourselves by arguing with anything and everything that creates conflict with our identity, it becomes completely unneccessary to explain oneself to others. “Don’t believe me, just watch.”

Tarot Clarity – Eros in Libra – Two of Wands

June 17th 2019: Eros enters Libra, the God Prince of Love in the sign of beauty and partnership, the palace of his mother Venus. In Libra, Eros embodies the Cupid archetype popularly imagined as a cherub. Cupid’s arrows are his divine birthright. He is the immortal entity responsible for directing the circumstances that bring lovers together.

The Two of Wands is a card that usually indicates insecurity and inhibitions: creative or sexual flow that is stuck behind an energetic block. Eros in Libra inverts this interpretation of the Two of Wands around the concept of desire.

eros.libra.2.wands

The word “virgin” doesn’t just mean someone who has never had sex. A child who has no concept of sex or attraction does not think of themselves as a virgin. The deeper implication is that a virgin is someone who has become aware of their sexuality but has not acted on it yet. Eros is aroused for the first time when a youth realizes that they are a virgin.

In our culture, there is a misplaced emphasis on the significance of the first sexual act, so recognition of virginity tends to enter our minds as the perception that we are lacking something important. The magic of Cupid is that he can return us to the same blush of innocent hunger with each and every new lover we encounter in our lives, so it is also common to feel the same impression of absence. When we define ourselves by what we don’t have and/or haven’t done, the result is always going to be the Two of Wands: insecurity and inhibitions.

The Two of Wands representing Eros in Libra teaches us that desire in its healthiest and most potent form does not view the self as lacking love, it views the self as a place where love belongs. Desire is a sensory celebration of our capacity for new experiences. Desire is a call for love to come home.

Tarot Clarity – Mars in Cancer – Page of Wands

May 15th 2019: Mars enters Cancer, a tricky placement for the planet of overt action to be confined to a secure refuge. The Martian spirit says “the best defense is a good offense” but in the crab shell of Cancer, Mars energy is divorced from the attack, surrounded by shields and armor. Aggression in Cancer is usually passive, and sometimes passionately violent.

The Page of Wands is the card of hesitation. It represents having identified a dream but not trusting oneself enough to fully pursue it. Or it can represent impostor syndrome- the fear of believing that you might actually be great.

mars.cancer.page.wands

Mars in Cancer as the Page of Wands symbolizes the unique frustration of the planet of Yang in the sign of the Mother, and an acknowledgement of the humility it requires to learn the lesson of this transit. Mars always knows what he wants to do, but in Cancer, he often does not know how to do it, or simply lacks faith in his own abilities. This gives us the opportunity to rest, clarify our purpose, take inventory of resources, study the maps, and invest in our closest relationships- which increases our confidence and makes us more effective workers.

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 – Vesta in Aries – Ten of Wands

April 3rd 2019: Asteroid Vesta enters Aries, the priestess of the sacred flame enters the sign of cardinal fire.

vesta.aries.10.wands.jpg

The Ten, like the Ace, symolizes something outside the realm of lived experience. The Ace represents the essence of the suit in the form of its seed potential, and the Ten represents the fulfillment of the potential, with the understanding that fulfillment of one suit fertilizes the seed of the next. The fulfillment of Wands fertilizes the seed of Swords; a creative passion that has reached its ultimate expression fertilizes a new journey in the intellectual realm.

Zero Aries is the first degree, first sign of the zodiac, which can be a spotlight on all the ways we feel like a neophyte. The Ten of Wands representing Vesta in Aries reminds us that we would not be at this new starting point at all, if not for the levels of mastery we already achieved. The intellectual goals that seem intimidating now, are evidence that we are successfully giving birth to a more authentic version of ourselves.

As flame must be controlled and sculpted to flourish, spread warmth, and serve, so must the soul. Without the ritual and skills of the flame-keepers, fire brings pain and loss. Vesta in Aries as the Ten of Wands is the one who has been enlightened to the mysteries of embodiment, ready to learn the rituals of the sacred flame and dedicate their service to the temple.
