The Emperor card has selected you to let you know that you sow seeds of better things and more fulfilling times ahead. Give yourself permission to reach out for more, especially if you are dissatisfied. You create a solid foundation, built on a sense of higher purpose. If your current relationship suffers from stress, today let tender actions reveal what you may be unable to put into words. Rebuild, from the ground up.

This Week’s Tarot Card Reading: The Hierophant

This Week’s Tarot Card Reading: The Hierophant

Your weekly Tarot card advice for August 6-12, 2018

The Hierophant is concerned with rules and traditions, which, depending on the situation, can be seen as helpful or hindering. There are two ways I can see to interpret this card in relation to this month’s theme of the reversed Emperor. Think about how these possible interpretations might connect to your life this week and follow suit with your actions.

One possible take on The Hierophant and the reversed Emperor is that obsessing over the rules can lead to further rigidity. If the Emperor energy is pushing you to want control over everything and everyone right now, The Hierophant might be a warning that an inflexible attitude will make it more difficult to get things accomplished this week. Consider how bending the rules a bit or compromising with others could help you move forward in projects and relationships.

On the other hand, The Hierophant’s call for structure might be a helpful force this week to offset the reversed Emperor energy. It suggests that now is not a great time to be reinventing processes, as your energy may be too emotional and wild. Having some predetermined plans and procedures to follow can help you get things done smoothly. Rules and structure are meant to keep chaos at bay and following a system can give you the sense of stability you are craving. Additionally, having a system for doing things makes you more likely to treat people equally and fairly, so flares in your emotions are not able to dictate your behavior quite so much. If your expectations of others are clearly delineated, they are more likely to respond in a way that gives you what you are looking for.

Tarot Card of the Day for August 7 is Queen of Cups: 

Tarot Card of the Day

Queen of Cups

August 7, 2018 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Traditionally, representing the energy of a Queen, this card traditionally portrays a sensitive, vulnerable, omniscient woman who offers unconditional love. She is supremely empathic — sometimes to a fault. Her caring nature exposes her to everybody else’s emotions and needs.

This person sometimes has difficulty identifying her own best interests in the midst of her responsiveness to others. As a result, she sometimes appears slightly unfocused or perhaps overwhelmed, filled as she is with “spirits”. She represents the Grail Queen, as well as the Goddess of the Family.

If You Were Born Today, August 7

Happy birthday, Angelika!

If You Were Born Today, August 7

 

You are a person who is very concerned with balance so that you always aim to be fair. Even so, you are in fact given to excess and at times you can be quite indulgent, as you love all the good things in life. You are charismatic with a friendly, communicative matter but also a highly developed spiritual or imaginative side that others might not always know about. In love, you can sometimes be impulsive, as you follow your heart and not always logic, as logical as you are in other areas of life. You might notice that you are more accountable than most when things go wrong. Famous people born today: Mata Hari, David Duchovny, Charlize Theron, Brit Marling, Liam James, Michael Shannon.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

With the Sun and Moon in harmony in your Solar Return chart, the year ahead should be satisfying and balanced overall. You are in comfortable demand and personally popular, and you are able to achieve a decent balance between work and play; personal and professional life. For the most part, you are on top of your game this year, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there is less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!

You also have Jupiter transiting in harmony to your Sun from January forward. Under this influence, you have a stronger than usual desire to improve, grow, and learn. This is a fortunate aspect that helps boost optimism and confidence, and you are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Problems are easier to resolve. Matters related to universities, higher education, organized religion, publishing, legal affairs, and foreign interests can be especially strong. It’s a favorable time to further your education, travel, or otherwise expand your personal horizons. You are likely to enjoy a larger perspective on matters that keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses.

This can be a year in which you are building faith and confidence in your personality, skills, and talents. You can experience a stronger desire to seek out meaning, wisdom, and mental stimulation in your life during this period. Others might frequently turn to you for guidance. In fact, they may see the wisdom in your ways more clearly.

You’re willing to put in the effort for a mental interest or project this year, and you can feel pleasantly dedicated to your work or ideas. You are more able to focus on what you’re doing and communicating, and more inclined to notice and consider details.

You are especially creative and expressive during this period, and you succeed most in fields or areas that allow you to make something beautiful, attractive, and/or entertaining. Personal magnetism is excellent at this time. This is a good period for creative projects and joining with others in the pursuit of a common goal.

Energy fluctuates this year, however. If you aren’t too rash or impulsive, you might be able to free yourself from restrictive circumstances. You could also have more courage than usual to do things that break the routine, and confrontations engaged in this year could clear the air and help you to move forward.

As well, getting serious about love or money (or both) can be a theme this year. Money may be tight, or the need to buckle down with your finances may be necessary. You may have an increased awareness of your limits. The responsibilities of partnership are magnified this year. You are likely to be more earnest on a romantic level. An existing relationship may become more serious, or you may form a new partnership with a serious or older person.

You might also watch for a tendency to overstate and to neglect important details when making plans. You may have so very many ideas that you end up implementing none if you’re not careful! You are likely to have increased opportunities for travel and/or new learning experiences.

Idealistic and humanitarian goals or impulses surface this year. Making connections with others from different backgrounds may figure strongly. Widening your mind through unusual or different experiences can be part of the picture. You more easily make personal sacrifices for what you believe to be the greater good this year.

There can be a pleasant sense that you’re moving forward and growing this year. Your creativity is stimulated in addition to your excitability and your need for freedom. It is easier than ever to express your individuality in a manner that is true to you. In certain areas of your life, you’re inclined to rock the boat this year so that you can break free from a limiting situation. Be mindful when/if making sweeping changes. Personal magnetism is strong, although there can be some feelings of restriction in a key relationship or with money matters at times.

2018 is a Number Eight year for you. Ruled by Saturn. This is a year of power and accomplishment. Actively seeking to expand, taking educated risks, and moving forward are highlighted. This is a year of opportunity, particularly in the material and business world, and opportunities need to be seized. It’s generally not a year to find a new love partner, simply because the focus is on the material world and your place in the world. This is a problem-solving year in which you can expect real, tangible results. Advice – take action, plan ahead, seize opportunities.

2019 will be a Number Nine year for you. Ruled by Mars. This is a year of completion and transition. It is a time when we need to let go of things that no longer serve their purpose, and hold on to things that have a future. It is a time of cleaning out dead wood, not necessarily for new beginnings. It can be a time when a burden has been taken off your shoulders, and it can be a year of giving of yourself. Advice – let go of things that are holding you back, give of yourself and express your sympathetic, compassionate side.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for August 7

Daily Cosmic Calendar for August 7

As indicated in yesterday’s calendar entry, Uranus and its unusual archetypes are on center stage as this planet makes a station and turns retrograde at 3 degrees of Taurus (9:50am). Focus your inner gaze at the following themes – surprises, revolution and radical change, intuition, eccentricity, the multi-media and high technology, advances in science and industry, aviation and space travel, the occult and metaphysics, jokers and wild cards, drawing outside the box, anxiety and the nervous system, upheavals and anarchy. Even though the exact Uranus station occurs at 9:50am, the reality is that this entire 24-hour time-period is under the strange, magical, and topsy-turvy dynamics that astrologers have associated with this peculiar planet since its discovery during the year of America’s revolutionary victory against Mother England in 1781. (Uranus will remain retrograde until it makes its next direct station at 29 degrees of Aries on January 6, 2019.) Recognize that the moon in Gemini is in void mode starting at 12:56am and lasting until 9:02pm when the lunar orb enters its natural abode of watery Cancer. While the halt by Uranus is the number one sky event right now, honorable mention awards go to a dazzling solar union with problem-solving genius Pallas at 15 degrees of Leo (6:00am) plus a passion-stirring trine between Venus in Libra and Mars in Aquarius (5:34pm). Be sensitive to the needs of loved ones as the Venus-Mars rapport is amplified a few hours later when Juno forms a supportive, 60-degree liaison with Neptune (8:42pm). Home and family matters are additional priorities with the lunar orb transiting the fourth sign of the zodiac.

The Witches Current Moon Phase for August 7th

Waning Crescent
Illumination: 21%

The Moon today is in a Waning Crescent phase. In this phase the Moon’s illumination is growing smaller each day until the New Moon. During this phase the Moon is getting closer to the Sun as viewed from Earth and the night side of the Moon is facing the Earth with only a small edge of the Moon being illuminated. This phase is best viewed an hour or 2 before the sunrise and can be quite beautiful if you’re willing to get up early. It can also be a great time to see the features of the Moon’s surface. Along the edge where the illuminated portion meets the dark side, the craters and mountains cast long shadows making them easier to observe with a telescope or binoculars.

Celebrating Legends, Folklore & Spirituality 365 Days a Year for August 7 & 8

Festival of Hathor

 

In ancient Egypt, the inundation of the Nile began about this time. As the waters rose to feed the land, Hathor, the cow-headed Goddess was honored (as were other deities).

Festivals in Egypt celebrated both the rising of the sun as well as the rising of the moon. During the daylight hours, the statue of the deity being worshiped was taken from the temple and paraded before the people—the only time the public was allowed to view the Gods, as the inner sanctums of the temples were closed to all but the priesthood. As the sun set and the moon began to rise, the nocturnal rights began. Candles in glass containers and lamps of colored translucent stone were ignited and decorated the homes and temples along the Nile. When the moon reached its zenith, prayers and blessings would have been said to bring the celebration to a close.
