The moon is continuing its waning transit as we approach eclipse season beginning with a new moon solar eclipse in Scorpio on October 25th. This powerful transit offers us a chance for a “reboot” on a primal level. I feel the cards that came out today reflect this energy coming into our awareness. Think of this period of time as “prep work”. Whitewashing the canvas so that we can go deep within the womb of the new moon to contemplate ideas for the new picture that we are about to paint.
This week’s message:
The four of pentacles and the ten of swords combined in this reading, indicates that something has run its course. You may be holding on or staying for just a little longer, hoping the situation improves or for a more mundane, practical reason. For others of you, the four of pentacles tells me that you have set some money aside for a rainy day, knowing this situation was not going to last long term. In other words, you saw the writing on the wall and prepared accordingly. The four of pentacles while holding tight now, soon will be required to let the process unfold as there is something new approaching on the horizon. Let’s touch on the ten of swords for a moment…
I often refer to the ten of swords as the “stick a fork in me I’m done” card in my readings. It’s the final blow in a situation, or it can indicate the end of overthinking. The image is rough, but it brings relief. Notice the “blessings” symbol that the character is making with his right hand. It’s a small detail, but important. My eye was drawn to this as I glanced at the next card, the nine of pentacles. This ending is the catalyst that allows something much better to come in.
The nine of pentacles is an auspicious sign. It is one of my favorite cards in the tarot. I often refer to her as my independent woman or female entrepreneur card. She has a deep appreciation for the finer things in life, including herself! In fact, her self-worth is the key to her success. After all, if you do not value yourself, who else will? She has an eye for beauty which can indicate that a creative hobby or side business has the potential to grow over time. It can also indicate a successful professional career and/or investments. She is a reflection of high standards, prosperity, confidence and grace. Her success has been built over time. She’s a mature woman that is at the point in her life where she is enjoying the blessings of her achievements. Not too shabby, I must say!
Grounding the reading is the four of cups. Here we have the card of perception and attitude. Compare this card and the ten of swords above it. The ten of swords literally has ten swords in his back, yet still has his eye on the horizon. Tomorrow is a new day full of possibilities. In the four of cups, the young man has opportunities sitting in front of him, as well as has a divine hand offering him another. But in his apathy, he doesn’t even bother to look up. Which one of these cards do you identify with at the moment? Is your cup half full or half empty?
One door closes and another one opens is the theme for this reading. Perhaps you will need to crawl through a window, I don’t know. But there does appear to be a favorable outcome and/or avenue for success here that may require a different approach. Stay open. Be willing to invest in yourself. The Divine has something “more” in mind for you. More than what you had in mind for yourself.
