Mars enters Gemini; Venus square Saturn
FIVE OF CHALICES, ACE OF PENTACLES & FOUR OF PENTACLES
We are feeling the need assess our relationships for their serious intent and long term durability. Relationships that aren’t standing on solid ground or that you don’t see any potential in may suddenly dissipate. But this energy will only take away what is not meant to be. Mars in Gemini brings fightin’ words. We are feeling more verbally confrontational than usual, so be mindful of what comes out of your mouth.
I asked Tarot, “How can we best avoid taking actions that we’ll later regret?”
Water and Earth cards suggests that our emotions impact our material circumstances. Venus square Saturn can suggest that we are feeling stingy with love and money, perhaps because we don’t feel as if we have much to give. That’s what the FOUR OF PENTACLES confirms. In this card we see a man holding on tightly to his coins, grasping particularly hard onto one that he holds over his heart.
Mirroring the Four of Pentacles, the FIVE OF CUPS suggests protection from an emotional loss. Sometimes the knee-jerk reaction to losing something is avoidance of all new emotional connections. To love means making yourself vulnerable to getting hurt, and when we’ve hurt so bad we do what we can to prevent it from happening again. The heart needs time to heal, but don’t allow the past to keep you from moving into the future. Focus on what’s ahead, rather than what is behind us.
The ACE OF PENTACLES signals the potential to materialize something tangible should we choose to open our hearts. As the wooden door opens, golden fairy dust spills through the garden wall. This card represents the magic that can happen when we shift our focus towards the possibilities rather than the limitations. Don’t focus on what you’ll never get back, but on what you are fully capable of getting in the future. Let down your guard a little. Explore the unknown.
