Card of the Week: July 31 – Aug 6, 2017
As Uranus officially turns retrograde in Aries this week, you may see many ideas presenting themselves in a whole new light, along with the means to accomplish them.
The Magician card reminds you that you have everything you need at your disposal. If you have been having a hard time putting your skills to the test at work or with something you are wishing to build this is the time you find that everything falls into place for you.
You have the energy, drive and ambition to reach your goals all you need is to take that first step to launch in the direction you wish to find yourself. By being practical and following your heart you can shed that which is not working for you and take on a whole new persona in relation to your work.
The colors on this card — from the Golden Tarot of Klimt — give an idea as to the attributes which surround you. The brown background keeps you stable and practical, while the red on the dress shows determination and action and the yellows represent the ideas that you have.
Notice the snake curling around the right arm as if something is consciously being shed and changed in order to tune into what you wish to accomplish.
Tarot Card of the Week: Jan 25, 2016 – Jan 31, 2016
This week you might take a risk — you know the future is uncertain but you’re confident and ready to move forward and put your plans into action to realize your dreams!
Hermes — The Little Rascal — The Magician of Greek Mythology
The Greek God Hermes was a rascal who had a hidden agenda and was extremely precocious. Hours after his birth he snuck out of his crib and headed off on an adventure which included stealing cattle from his half-brother, Apollo.
He hid them in a cave, creating a lyre (lute) from a turtle shell, and inventing sacrificial divine worship. He then returned to his crib as if nothing had happened.
Apollo discovered his cattle were missing and became livid! Being the gifted god of prophecy and omens as well as the Sun god, he determined that Hermes stole the cattle.
Finding the supposedly hapless infant in his crib, Apollo took Hermes to see his father, Zeus (king of the gods, fate and destiny). When confronted, Hermes lied and said that he did not take the cattle.
