Good morning and Welcome! to the Scales of Ma’at for 03Jun2016 : today my Heart is riding high with the Queen of Wands whereas the Feather Truth is letting hayseed grow between his teeth while he and the farmer wait for the 7 of Disks to bear fruit. (Today’s deck is *Tarot* by Alexander Daniloff, ed.2012. It is a gorgeous deck.) I’m going to give a hard, cold, fact-based read today as it’s quick but accurate. I’m a bit off my game this week. Raven is kicking in a large helping claw today. In astrology she is full-on Aries, striding between 21° Pisces to 20° Aries. She is Water in the Fires of Atziluth; and resides in Bina. “Personifying the Waters in the element of Fire, the Queen of Wands has a similar base-line as the Knight of Cups; combining opposing elements when neither of the contrasts can overcome the other, thus having an unstable balance between them. As a queen, she is the mother of her element, the emotion and the sensitivity, thus having her attributes of love, understanding and sympathy, her abilities to form and create, spending trust and warmth. The fiery character provides pride, passion, inspiration and powerful independence, her charisma, strength and expansiveness. Due to the imbalance in her character, the Queen of Wands can easily shift to her dark side, becoming a hot-tempered, revengeful fury, domineering and possessive, taking the tiniest slight as a reason to bear a grudge for years. She never forgets and never forgives, and as easily her fiery temper makes her forget own mistakes, so deeply her watery depths can cause her to ponder long and broad about the mistakes of others. Missing the stability of earth and the logic of air, tolerance and self-control never were her best disciplines.” That feels right today,
I AM feeling a bit snarky & distant. As for the Feather of Truth, today she is hanging with the farmer in the 7 of Disks. The card is Saturn in the 3rd decan of Taurus, and it resides in Netzach, representing Earth. In astrology, it is Saturn in the 3rd decan of Taurus. “The 7 of Disks are moving into Netzach, the fields of anarchy and destiny, and losing the harmonious peace of Tiphareth; this is a radical fall from paradise into the abysses of fate. The hope within the card is the hand of Saturn, the father of time, who reminds us to wait for a chance instead of quickly jumping after any vague promise, to silently watch and reflect and get deeper insights into the coherences, until the time will come when a real chance shows up.” I’m going to leave it there, not being motivated to blather today. I’m just tired, I think. Or anemia, which comes & goes with me. “On verra.” I ask the Cosmos to put me on a side passage today, as I’m not much use at the moment. And to grant ALL of us some R & R from the Work, if it is needed. Be Well!
