Your Crowley Thoth Tarot Card for Today

Adjustment

Adjustment denotes an inner power, mastery of will and development of inner might. Through mastering one’s emotions and learning from both success and failure the person Adjustment represents has reached a place where they are influential without applying physical force, able to weather the roughest of storms, and not likely to abandon the less fortunate. Adjustment also denotes a large capacity for forgiveness and compassion. Adjustment is not as much about winning as it is about achieving balance, overcoming hardship, and using well crafted persuasion to gain allies. Adjustment suggests the need and ability to make our decisions based on objective perceptions of events, and good or bad, accepting responsibility for our actions.

Today’s I Ching Hexagram for July 22 is 14: Abundant Blessings

14: Abundant Blessings

Tuesday, Jul 22nd, 2014

hexagram09

 

 

 

 

 

Supreme success! Like the proverbial pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, a person whose fortunes have turned for the better shines as bright. At the core of this success lies unselfishness and modesty, for it is the tendency of a flexible or yielding nature to bind powerful forces to it, particularly when prosperity begins to manifest. When power is wielded with grace and dignity, there is supreme success and great abundance!

Ah, but be careful. Along with any accumulation of wealth or influence can come pride and arrogance. Fight such tendencies if you intend to continue enjoying your bliss. Stay attentive enough to manage your affairs well. And remember that while material prosperity certainly beats the alternative, it is only one of many elements of a satisfying life.

Today’s Tarot Card for July 22nd is The High Priestess

 

The High Priestess

Tuesday, Jul 22nd, 2014

Traditionally called the High Priestess, this major arcana, or trump, card represents human wisdom. She can be viewed as a kind of female Pope, the ancient Egyptian Priestess of Isis, the even older snake and bird Goddesses, the Greek Goddess Persephone, or the Eve of Genesis before the Fall.

For the accused heretics who were burnt at the stake for revering her in the 14th and 15th century, she symbolized the prophecy of the return of the Holy Spirit, which was perceived as the female aspect of the Holy Trinity.

In the sequence of cards in the major arcana, the High Priestess appears as soon as the Fool decides he wants to develop his innate powers, making a move toward becoming a Magus. The High Priestess is his first teacher, representing the Inner Life and the method for contacting it, as well as the contemplative study of Nature and the Holy Mysteries.

Get a Jump On Tomorrow, Your Horoscopes for Wed., July 23

We may be resolute about accomplishing our goals now that the radiant Sun shines its light in the midsummer sign of Leo the Lion. Meanwhile, the Moon’s visit to jittery Gemini keeps us on our toes. The Moon enters introspective Cancer at 10:59 pm EDT, drawing our focus inward as we contemplate the meaning of our emotions. However, a fantasy-prone Venus-Neptune alignment is exact tomorrow morning, empowering us to dream our way into the future.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Your confidence might have flagged during the past month, but change is in the air and things are beginning to improve. A noticeable shift in your attitude won’t occur overnight, but you feel more positive day by day. Allow the current events to unfold without resistance while continuing to affirm that better times are on the way. Believing in yourself, coupled with the Sun’s move into your 5th House of Creativity, is all it takes to chase away the clouds of self-doubt.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You are more in touch with your feelings while the Sun’s presence in your 4th House of Roots lights up your walk down Memory Lane. However, you could be hijacked by your past if you’re not careful. Don’t bother trying to hold onto childhood perspectives any more, especially if they reinforce your concerns about scarcity. Remember, the universe is overflowing with unlimited possibilities, so show up with a smile and do what you can to transform your fears into love.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You are more in touch with your feelings while the Sun’s presence in your 4th House of Roots lights up your walk down Memory Lane. However, you could be hijacked by your past if you’re not careful. Don’t bother trying to hold onto childhood perspectives any more, especially if they reinforce your concerns about scarcity. Remember, the universe is overflowing with unlimited possibilities, so show up with a smile and do what you can to transform your fears into love.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

A wave of insecurity might cause you to overcompensate and show only your very best side today. But your positive attitude could come across as false if you sound blindly optimistic. It’s of no value to hide the truth now, even if it’s not what you think someone else wants to hear. Don’t get bent out of shape over the wrong things; stick to the facts and let others take responsibility for their reactions. The only person within your control is you.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You might feel a surprising sense of relief as the relentless Sun leaves your sign. You’re no longer in the spotlight, allowing you to work more quietly behind the scenes. But you might not want to withdraw into your shell for too long because the Moon slips into your 11th House of Social Networking tonight. You wish you could just make up your mind but you’re being pulled in two totally different directions. Instead of buying into the illusion that you must make a choice, you will be happier if you just go with the flow.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You’re in your own element today; you have a specific agenda and nothing will stand between you and your destination. There’s only one problem with believing you’re invincible: you’re not. You might run into danger if you try to outsmart reality. Luckily, your wildest dreams are within reach as long as you have enough flexibility to respond to the changing conditions of the road. The power of positive thinking works in your favor, but you can’t rush success.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You aren’t a happy camper if you discover someone is keeping pertinent information from you today but, thankfully, you are able to efficiently handle the situation. Even a difficult experience can quickly morph into a positive one if you exude confidence, rather than doubt. The willful Sun and opinionated Jupiter are both traveling through your 12th House of Secrets; change the game now by preemptively exploring the hidden realms of your subconscious. Happiness comes from the clues you find buried deep in the shadows.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You want to keep up with your friends because they appear to be having more than their fair share of fun. Even at work, your associates don’t seem to be working very hard today. The good news is your productivity won’t necessarily suffer if you join in the social festivities now. Luckily, the brilliant Sun’s shift into your 11th House of Long-Term Goals enables you to find pleasure in the present moment while also keeping an eye on the future.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

It’s disconcerting if someone assumes that you will always drop your personal priorities when asked. You wouldn’t mind offering your assistance out of the goodness of your heart, but you don’t appreciate the pressure of being told what to do. There’s no need to say yes and jump right in. Believe it or not, others will get by without you immediately rushing to their rescue today. Considering all your options before responding may be enough of a cue to convey that you don’t want anyone to take advantage of your generosity.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Perhaps you’re busy dreaming about unrealistic scenarios to avoid dealing with the promises you already made. Your intentions may have been sincere in the moment, but your time is running short and you don’t know how you’re going to fulfill all of your obligations now. Keep in mind that even a minor task could grow into a major one today. Don’t make any sudden changes to your overall strategy yet; wait a few days to see how the new landscape takes shape and then re-establish a fresh set of priorities. Your future is bright as long as your energy isn’t spread too thin.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Even the most surefooted of you goats can slip if you’re moving too fast, and an overabundance of bravado today might be enough to make you careless. Believing in dreams is crucial, but overconfidence could cause more harm than good. Don’t give reality a reason to teach you a lesson in humility. You have a better chance of reaching your ambitious goals if you focus on each step along the way. Slow and steady wins the race.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Everyone you know is playing a part in your movie now that the dramatic Leo Sun is holding court in your 7th House of Others. Unfortunately, you may be growing weary of someone’s self-promoting behavior. You crave sincerity and truthfulness, but could feel as if you’re currently being shortchanged in your relationships. It will be a lot less stressful if you accept the fact that others are probably giving all that they can. Instead of wishing for more, be appreciative of what you have today.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You would like to have more free time at your disposal today, but you may have already overcommitted yourself in the chores department. Running errands and helping others prevent you from following your fantasies. But don’t complain about your obligations; just doggedly finish what you can with a smile in your heart. Thankfully, if you apply yourself diligently during the day, you should have time for more pleasurable pursuits in the evening.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, July 22

It may seem nearly impossible to take any one idea and follow it through to conclusion today. The adaptable Gemini Moon encourages us to be so flexible that we bounce from one concept to another without finishing anything at all. Although we can amuse ourselves with our ingenuity, we might also break free from comfortable thought patterns which have deepened into ruts. Fortunately, the Sun’s shift into fixed Leo helps anchor us to our intentions.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Your perceptions may be crystal clear but you must limit the quantity of data you receive or you could change your mind every few minutes throughout the day. You are fascinated by new concepts and are eager to fully embrace them as yours. Rather than overreacting by jumping to the next good idea, choose one and take it as far as you can. E.E. Cummings wrote, “I’d rather learn from one bird how to sing than to teach ten thousand stars how not to dance.”

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

There’s nothing wrong with your logic today, but don’t focus on the mistakes of others. Lead by example and do what you can to improve your own work, instead. However, a critical attitude by itself won’t prompt you to make personal changes, for you are most likely to acquiesce when gently coaxed, rather than if you feel forced into action. You’re more likely to succeed if you believe in what you’re doing.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

The pace of the past few days may have seemed a bit slow, but today’s mentally active Gemini Moon continues a fresh energy cycle that inspires you with one idea after another. You could actually have too much on your plate, making it difficult to decide what to do next. It’s best not to take on more than you can handle, but this means you must stop long enough to establish your priorities. Think first; act later.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You are some what agitated by your overactive imagination that could make prolonged concentration very challenging today. You can make the most of this creative buzz by finding a quiet place to unwind a bit. If possible, take some time away from your work now, but don’t confuse needing solitude with being lazy. Let your mind travel where it chooses and you just might come up with a brilliant new idea that makes your escape seem worthwhile.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You are feeling overly vulnerable today and words that would normally roll off your back may feel like an attack. Maintaining an objective perspective is a smart way to stay calm, for the situation is not likely as threatening as it seems. Although others may be in a playful mood, you might be missing the joke. Instead of letting your pride get in the way, stop taking everything so personally and join in the fun.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Casually contacting a friend could end up helping you professionally now. Even someone you barely know may be of assistance in ways you cannot yet comprehend. Today, your job isn’t to criticize anything or anyone, but to simply open yourself up to the possibilities. There is more going on than meets the eye, so save your judgment until you better understand what others can contribute. You can’t rush some things; trust develops on its own schedule.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

It’s an excellent day to smooth out wrinkles in an existing relationship, even if very delicate diplomacy is required. The most crucial thing is to understand one another, especially in personal matters. Compassion is needed to keep a conversation going, so be kind with your tone while being truthful with your words. Balancing honesty with respect enables you to exchange points of view under the best possible conditions. Communication is a two-way street.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Discussions may grow more serious today, yet your persistence allows you to resolve a sticky issue. Engaging in dialogue won’t be enough, though; a bit of flexibility on both sides is necessary to grease the process. Just remember that if you think you know the answer, there are still other possible responses to consider. Don’t dig in your heels for no reason; make adaptability your mantra and you’ll come out a winner.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

New worlds of possibilities are calling, but first you have a few practical matters to handle. Starting out by tackling the most ordinary tasks now can give you the freedom to enjoy yourself later. Don’t worry if you’re feeling restless because your boredom won’t last long. Hurry up and finish your chores; there will be plenty of activity to keep you entertained before you know it.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Your best-laid plans may begin to crumble under the pressure now as unexpected demands are put on your time and energy. Nevertheless, remember to give yourself a break as the pace of your daily life speeds up. Accepting that you can’t complete everything today might be enough to change the dynamics and help you to relax. Paradoxically, doing only what is absolutely necessary might actually enable you to finish more, faster than you expect.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Exploring a delightful variety of stimulating people, places and activities enriches your life in so many ways. You are happily entertained by little things as romantic energies begin to stir. Even a casual conversation can suddenly turn flirtatious today. But don’t get too attached to any particular outcome; enjoy the innocence of living in the moment. Acting spontaneously adds a lovely element of surprise to your day.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Life is simpler these days if you have fewer family obligations, so don’t complicate matters by making so many promises now that you fall behind on your commitments. Acting with confidence is healthy, but blind optimism is not. Even if everything appears to be under control for the moment, conditions can change unexpectedly. Avoid being caught off guard by consciously setting limits and sticking to them.

Your Love Horoscopes for the Week of July 21

Communication may be tricky between you and your love early in the week, thanks to a pesky opposition between Mercury and Pluto on Tuesday. A power struggle between domestic responsibilities and career goals is possible. Don’t fall into the trap of asserting that your ambitions are more important than your partners, because if you do … ouch! Thankfully, life and love get sweeter by Thursday, thanks to a gorgeous trine between Venus and Neptune. Then, on Friday, Mars enters intensely sexy Scorpio, where he’ll remain until September 13. This should add plenty of steam and allure to your sex life! As if that weren’t enough, a New Moon in Leo on Saturday promises a weekend filled with laughter, play and romance! What about your romantic prospects? Read your love horoscope to learn more…

 

Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

On Friday, Mars will shift gears and move out of Libra into Scorpio. This is big news for your love life because Mars was in your partnership sector for an unusually long stretch — seven months! This might have signaled a time when you endured more relationship upheaval than usual. Thankfully, with your ruler now moving into the area of your chart that rules intimacy, your ability to achieve amazing soul level connections through cosmic sexual bonding with your mate will be incredible. It’ll last until September 13. If single, a New Moon in your true love sector suggests romance is on the horizon.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

Starting this Friday and lasting until September 13, your relationship will be anything but boring. Yes, there might be more quarreling between you and your mate, but look at the bright side: This will open the door to sizzling hot make-up sex each and every time you fight! If you have anything significant to work out with each other, this may be a time when compromise proves to be more difficult. At the same time, however, you’ll feel motivated to work through any struggles. You’ve got this!

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

You might be ready for a rest when it comes to how action-packed your love life has been over the last several months. Since late 2013, Mars has been traveling through your romance sector, stirring the pot in matters of the heart for you. Sometimes this has been breathtaking, and it has resulted in romantic encounters that made you come alive again. At other times, however, it has likely been a period where you’ve had to fight for your right to love who and how you please. After Friday, Mars will kiss this part of your chart goodbye and won’t return for two years. Your love life won’t be boring, but much of the drama will finally calm down.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

Get ready for a cosmic jolt to your love life! On Friday, Mars, the planet of action, energy and libido, will enter your 5th House of Romance and Pleasure. This is the area of your chart where you date, have fun and fall in love. For the first time in about two years, Mars will tour this part of your chart. Until September 13 you’ll have a brilliant opportunity to pursue whatever — and whoever — will give you the most pleasure. You’ll do this with courage, stamina and gusto. Bring on the sexy!

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Get ready to break a few hearts this week — or at least make someone swoon! On Saturday, a glorious New Moon in your sign will snuggle up closely to Jupiter, now also in your sign. This signals a tremendous opportunity for emotional expansion that you’ll surely want to take advantage of. Now, more than ever, you’re ready to open up your heart and give love. The question is, who are you going to give it to? Make sure it’s someone ultra-special!

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Venus continues to move through your social networking sector, which is a time you typically enjoy spending time with friends and in group settings. If you’re single, it goes without saying that you’ll have plenty of opportunity to meet someone with heart-capturing potential simply by attending a party or meeting for an organization you’re affiliated with. If you’re partnered up, look to Thursday for an extra-special opportunity for you and your love to enjoy social fun with pals that you both get along with. Not always an easy accomplishment, but this week it’ll be effortless.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

On Monday, Uranus, the planet of revolution and upheaval, will turn retrograde, and it will remain in this position for several months. Why is this relevant for your love life? It turns out Uranus is the ruler of your romance sector. As a result, you may feel this planetary shift more than others when it comes to your heart happenings. Issues that revolve around who you’re attracted to and whether or not they fit the “norm” may come into significance now. You might also need to work out any issue that involves freedom versus commitment with someone you’re dating. Don’t worry — you’ll have your signature diplomacy back to help you. Mars moves out of your sign on Friday. You’re ready to be fair to your partner, and yourself.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Are you feeling sexier? More intense? Well, if you’re not, then it looks like after Friday your libido will enjoy a much needed wake-up call! Mars, the planet of assertive drive, will enter your sign, and it will remain in Scorpio until September 13. This is a phenomenal, once-every-two-year occurrence that promises to boost your energy and sex drive! Launch any new projects that are important to your personal endeavors, but don’t forget to schedule time to pursue the pleasures in life. You know — the ones that happen behind closed doors!

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

If you start to feel as if you’re losing your socializing mojo by Friday, don’t despair — it might be a blessing in disguise. Perhaps you’ve become slightly burnt out from having way too much action in your social life since the end of December. Now, and until September 13, you’ll have an opportunity to quiet things down and figure out how you really want to direct your energy. That might mean more quiet evenings at home snuggled up next to your sweetheart, but that’s OK. You’ll enjoy the extra privacy and all the benefits that come along with it.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Things should be peaceful between you and your partner this week. In fact, you’ll even have a pocket of bliss to enjoy near Thursday, when Venus embraces Neptune. This will help you to not only see your love for the soul mate that he or she is, but it will also support a gorgeous conversation between the two of you that will help bring this point home. On Saturday, an exciting New Moon will offer you an opportunity for an erotic encounter. Make it memorable!

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Someone at the office might be the reason your heart skips a beat on Thursday. If you’re attracted to a coworker, it’s likely this person will make you feel extra appreciated and amazing this week. Is this the start of something special? Only you can decide! On Saturday, however, a gorgeous New Moon in your partnership sector will set the stage for a new relationship to form. Whether it’s someone at work or someone you meet at the gym is beside the point. Love is calling. Answer!

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You’ll feel extra romantic this week. In fact, you might even lose yourself in a wistful fantasy about love. Perhaps you’ll feel convinced that you and your sweetheart are living a real life storybook romance. Fairy tales do come true — at least as far as you’re concerned. Look to Thursday for a blissful example of how possible it is for your dreams to manifest in the love department. Open your heart and make a wish.
