Tarot Card of the Day: The Empress:
Abundanza in Italian or Wai Wai in Hawaiian is the adjective that best describes The Eternal Mother giver of life, love, and abundance. Gaia, Haumea, Mother Earth, the living breathing planet that nurtures and supports us rules the first month of the year with sensual abundance and love. Be ready, a child is brewing in the belly of your creativity perhaps both figuratively and literally so be prepared for its joyful nascence. The Empress is many characters: Hera, queen of the gods consort to Zeus, mother of Persephone; she is Venus, goddess of love, beauty, and desire; she is Adelaide Empress of the Holy Roman Empire; and she is Eleanor Queen of Aquitaine, mother of King’s. She is a fruitful ruler in the material plane, practical, loving, and adoring. The quintessential Mother of mothers, our Mame for all seasons. She is here to shower you with motherly love and support but remember not to fool with mother nature. Her realm is a material one where she reigns supreme and she wields destruction with fiendish efficiency. For the past century The Empress has been slowly rising in our collective consciousness producing a major shift in our appreciation of the sacred feminine, the pinnacle of which will be realized in 2012. What does that mean exactly? Be ready for a major shift of consciousness that moves us towards unity and peace. More women will have more influence in the material happenings of our planet. They will move into positions of leadership and influence not because they mimic male machismo and political ambition but because they are mothers and nurturers. “The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world”.
The Empress reclines on her luxurious throne amidst the golden hues of a field of wheat; she is matron of the material, birther, mother, Creatrix. At her feet, the shield of Venus; in her hand a golden scepter evidence her dominion over the material world and love. Her star-studded crown and gown of ripe pomegranates are representative of her divine fertility and eternal abundance. Beware, for to scorn her is to evoke one’s own destruction.
Tarot Card of The Day: Wheel of Fortune
Fate versus Destiny; what’s the difference? Do we have control over our lives or are we just holding on to the wheel? Does free will exist? The Wheel of Fortune is both a transporting device and a mode of torture. It can deliver great success in one moment and dispatch that success in the next. This contraption of opposites both intrigues and horrifies us; instilling within our collective psyche the urge to engage life as if it were an arbitrary game of chance. This notion begs the question, is life really a collection of random circumstances or is there something more to it? The Tarot knows the answer and it’s mystery is revealed through the synchronisation of events that surround our often myopic perceptions of reality. In other words, the more we pay attention to the choices we make and the reasons for why we make those choices the better we understand the boons and busts of our seemingly arbitrary experiences. When we truly understand the Law of Cause and Effect, we realize the importance of taking accountability for ALL of our thoughts, words, and actions. Every nuance no matter how seemingly insignificant resonates out into the universe eventually echoing back to us for better or for worse. If you feel like your stuck in and endless cycle of ups and downs ask yourself, how am I contributing to my Karmic reality?
The Sphinx, with her secret, presides over The Wheel of Fortune. The Wheel as it turns counter-clockwise propels its riders up and then down into perpetuity or so it would seem. Does the Sphinx hold the riddle to the mystery? Is there a way off the Wheel? The four permanent signs of the Zodiac in conjunction with the four Gospels sit as sentinels on the four corners of the card leaving the seeker to consider that perhaps the answer is right in front of us.
