Welcome to your weekly Tarot forecast! Solar eclipse is imminent as I write this on Sunday evening here in the Pacific Northwest. We have lots of guests from other places in the state, although it’s not too badly crowded here because we’re not quite in the totality area. Should be a great energy boost. I’ll be doing a meditation rather than rushing out to look at it. In respect of the power.
Meanwhile, let’s see how the week of the eclipse could unfold. I’m using The Wildwood Tarot, which always makes me feel in tune with the Earth and its natural cycles, of which solar eclipses are a part.
Since there is no specific question or area of concern for these readings, my interpretation will be very general in nature, based on my sense of what the Tarot itself is addressing and the general energy potentials for the week.
Let’s do a chronological look first, and then we’ll use some mirror pairs to round out the message.
The Timeline View
Well, the solar eclipse is supposed to be about an increase in power and movement by astrological lights, and the first two cards of our week reflect this. The Six of Arrows (Swords) in the Wildwood shows just one person sailing into the next challenge on a full moon night and then the Three of Vessels (Cups) shows an awesome stork celebration the next day. So, move on, my friends, for the reward will be yours and you can raise a glass with close friends (and storks represent delivery of positive messages of change).
By midweek, it’s going to be feminine power time. Now that you’ve moved on from what might not have worked last week and have celebrated your successful transition, you can draw on the power of the Queen of Bows (Wands). This hare knows exactly how to move quickly into new adventures and can reproduce creative efforts in no time. Things are getting creative and speedy.
Sorry, no break for contemplation this week. Moving on, you get to pull together your own masculine power to deal with multiple issues that may arise toward the end of the week. With the power of the Q of Bows and the Five of Bows, you have all the energies you need to keep moving into your own power, which culminates in a sense of being the master of your domain with the King of Stones (Pentacles) in the last card of the spread. Either you or someone close to you will bring a grounding to your excited Bows activities and will anchor your success with practical advice. Heed the call of the wolf and head for the den for the weekend.
The Mirrored Tarot Pairs
The focal point for this view of your cards is the Queen of Bows, a powerful, creative feminine force symbolized by the Hare.
Now let’s pair the outer cards up to see how they might inform your situation. Six of Arrows and King of Stones. Lots of grays and sense of cold and refuge in these two cards. Use their energy to keep moving and stay grounded while expressing the fiery and creative energy of the Queen of Bows.
The inner pair of the Three of Vessels and the Five of Bows asks you to allow your masculine energy to merge with the feminine to create a really great result to whatever you happen to be working to accomplish this week. The power is there from both sides to work for you.
Cosmic Whispers of the Week
Here’s an energetic reading from a wonderful erotic Tarot de Marseille deck take off. As usual, Chloë McCracken as a great take on the energy of this deck. Check it out here.
And of course, it is a new moon on the 21st (that would be the only way to have an eclipse) and it’s a Leo Moon, so grab your power center and take up the energy with Little Red here.
