Good morning and Welcome! to the Scales of Ma’at for 07 July 2015: I Hermes (the Magician) and the Lady of Cups (11). (Today’s deck is the *Tarot of the Sevenfold Mystery* by Robert M. Place. If I haven’t sung long and enchantingly enough of Mr. Place’s decks for you, then you are a brute, an unevolved spirit, and you need to leave; get out, and take the pig with you. To those who remain I have no need to explain, we all emotionally, psychically & spiritually grok his art. I use his *Vampire Tarot* for readings involving workplace and relationship questions; it is absolutely amazing to see people recognize their acquaintances in such a spread, and identify the energy clashes, compromises and connections happening or available.) (Thank you to all of you who were as lovely, generous and sweet as to be supportive during my medical digressions away from the reading cloth. It helps me to realize that, as a community of weird reptilian creatures we still manage to dredge up some niceness for own once in a while {{snicker}}. Now I must await Thursday for my interview with the Count.)  Today on the Scales we have a nice, presentable pair, one you wouldn’t be ashamed to present to your parents as very good friends and thus important to you. If Hermes isn’t Mr. Right for you, then you’ve disembarked in the wrong Universe: this is “Him, THE Guy, Mr. Better-Than-You-Deserve, Mr. Capable, and a real-life MacGyver” who puts his magick where his mouth is. He’s everything we all want to be, with one “just a minute”: That isn’t your knight in shining armor; this is your Invitation to BECOME that knight in shining armor. So, feel good about it but get yourself ready. Now, Our dashing Mr. Wonderful is being charmingly cavaliered by the Lady of Cups (Page) to the ball. While he’s got all of his tech-savvy flashy magickal knowledge ready to fly, she’s floating along, telling anyone who will listen, “Trust your Intuition, Trust your Balance” and their progress into the day would seem to say, “Okay, while we are entering today, remember to do some magical thinking and realignment of your Open eyes and Pay Attention to your Intuition today, Mark!” Just to feel a bit better about this simplistic message, let’s scan their “X-rays,” shall we? I Hermes, Path of Beth 12 in the Tree of Life, Sun/Mercury in Aries; the sun for power and charisma, Mercury for agility and dexterity. Planet: Mercury. Tree of life: From Kether to Binah. Element: Air. Number: 1 as symbol for unity (male.) “The Magician represents consciousness, action and creation. He's the symbol for the idea of manifestation - the possibility of making an idea come true. He gives meaning and direction to life, and he reminds us that the emotional and creative powers of our souls must have a physical basis to be of real use. Powers unused are powers non-existent, we have to set them free in order to use them, and to gain and renew.” (Raven) His Drive is Self-realization, a strong will, the energy to have one's way. His Light is Activity, power of life, impulse, energy; and his Shadow is: Aggressivity, egoism, the abuse of power. The Lady of Cups is the Princess of the Palace of the Floods. She is in Malkuth in the Tree of Life. In Astrology: Venus in her water signs. Element and world: The Earth in the waters of Briah. On the Tree of Life: Malkuth. “The Princess of Cups represents the earth in the waters of Briah, an island floating in the groundless seas. She is far from her father's flames and her mother's depth, and she lacks the researching spirit of her brother . . . Therefore, an unaffected spectator might take her as childish or selfish, but the island of the princess can be so fertile and rich. On the dark side, the island can turn out to be a castle made of sand, sinking in the seas of irrationality and daydreaming.”(Raven) Her Drive is: The exploring of the inner worlds, her Light is: Intuition, sensibility, tenderness, fantasy, dreamy imagination, and her Shadow is: Faking, abuse of feelings, selfish, luxurious, deviation, and a flatterer. These are ALL KNOWN QUANTITIES. I can deal with almost ALL of this with my eyes closed; which I think is what Hermes wants, as my attention is fixated, without choice, on the physical for a few days yet. When the pain finally & fully stops I thoroughly expect a message “saying”, “OK, got it under control, at least? Good. Let’s get back to your soul.” My affirmation for today was supposed to be ‘I Open the way for my own success’ but that fits about as well as a neutered square peg fits a neutered round hole; how about, “one step at a time, pal, nothing presses.”
