Tarot of the Week: Sep 5, 2016- Sep 11, 2016
Eight of Pentacles
Tarot Card of the Week: The Eight of Pentacles – Raising the Bar to Achieve a Dream.
This week, you might be raising the bar to achieve a dream and hammering away at obstacles to achieve success.
The planet Mercury is retrograde in the zodiac sign of Virgo and you might be dealing with Murphy’s Snafus (unexpected obstacles).
Just keep hammering away and don’t give up on your dream.
On the bright side, Mercury Retrograde is the time when we turn our thoughts inwards and we are more tuned into our intuition!
The Eight of Pentacles is all about entering the apprenticeship phase. In the upright position, this card means you raised the bar to achieve success.
The obstacles of the past will be history because you hammered away at the work load and did not give up.
The Eight of Pentacles is associated with the planet Mercury (how the mind works) and the zodiac sign of Virgo (the combination of Mercury in Virgo makes you work hard and pay attention to details).
Just after the sun goes into Aquarius right on a New Moon on January 20, 2015 we are visited again (on the 21st) by that pesky little thing known as Mercury turning retrograde.
This time it is in Aquarius which is the sign of geniuses as that lightening quick energy of Uranus (Aquarius’ ruling planet) mingles with Mercury (planet of communication).
You can imagine many things can go wrong with the combination of Mercury retrograde in Aquarius and you are not far off the mark there.
Be prepared for thoughts just hitting you out of nowhere and then be prepared for feeling frustrated in not being able to follow them up.
You might also want to give some thought to electrical gadgets going haywire and making sure that everything is in tip top shape so no further damage can be done.
Personally, I like the sound of Mercury retrograde in Aquarius. It should bring out some plans that are about your future, allow you to see things from different angles that you may not usually take into consideration and also not keep you as heavily bound down as some of the other signs Mercury could’ve turned retrograde in.
