Your Crowley Thoth Tarot Card for July 26 is The Chariot

Your Crowley Thoth Tarot Card for Today

The Chariot

The Chariot is the representation of Victory and the personality traits required to attain victory. The Chariot indicates self-awareness and control. Courage—the ability to overcome fear and confront the unknown head on–is a primary ingredient of any victorious campaign and is denoted by the Chariot. So too is force of will. Often success is as much the product of will power and a refusal to surrender as it is anything else. The Chariot also represents the healthy personality of someone who believes in themselves; someone who can take control of the situation and bring events to a positive end. His successes come in competition with others.

Your I Ching Hexagram for July 26th is 26: Containment of Potential

26: Containment of Potential

Saturday, Jul 26th, 2014

hexagram09

 

 

 

 

 

This hexagram points to the containment of great power that increases as it is wisely stewarded. Like a river that has been dammed, or a boiling pot with a lid on, holding and containing power produces enormous energy. During normal times, daily ritual and habit help keep life ordered and serene; but in times of great opportunity, great fortitude is required. Focused attention is what will be required to channel this great potential and achieve supreme success.

In a current situation you have considerable reserves of energy and support to draw upon. This is the right time to channel creativity by collecting and organizing good ideas and plans. In this way, even large or extremely challenging undertakings can be successful.

A hidden source of power for the great is the study of the past. The lives of wise and successful men and women are like buried treasures of wisdom. Great good fortune comes to those who unearth these valuable treasures by applying the lessons of the ages to current events.

Today’s Tarot Card for July 26th is The Lovers

The Lovers

Saturday, Jul 26th, 2014

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Although it has taken on a strictly romantic revision of meaning in some modern decks, traditionally the Lovers card of Tarot reflected the challenges of choosing a partner. At a crossroads, one cannot take both paths. The images on this card in different decks have varied more than most, because we have had so many ways of looking at sex and relationships across cultures and centuries.

Classically, the energy of this card reminded us of the real challenges posed by romantic relationships, with the protagonist often shown in the act of making an either-or choice. To partake of a higher ideal often requires sacrificing the lesser option. The path of pleasure eventually leads to distraction from spiritual growth. The gratification of the personality eventually gives way to a call from spirit as the soul matures.

Modern decks tend to portray the feeling of romantic love with this card, showing Adam and Eve at the gates of Eden when everything was still perfect. This interpretation portrays humanity before the Fall, and can be thought to imply a different sort of choice — the choice of evolution over perfection, or the choice of personal growth through relationship — instead of a fantasy where everything falls into place perfectly and is taken care of without effort.

Get A Jump on Tomorrow, Your Horoscopes for Sunday, July 26th

Our passions intensify throughout the day as we move toward a potent Venus-Pluto opposition. Although sharing feelings of jealousy can be problematic, we are still eager to express our emotions now that Jupiter, the Sun and the Moon are all in theatrical Leo. We want to tackle the issues head-on today, but messenger Mercury is hanging back in receptive Cancer, indicating that we could be better off by listening than saying anything at all.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Your creative approach to life colors all that you do as you seek ways to share your unique outlook. However, your imagination is so vivid now that it’s challenging to verbalize your ideas. You might even choose to remain quiet since you currently think silence speaks louder than words. Nevertheless, an emotional retreat is self-defeating. The only way to resolve the tension between your inner and outer worlds is to bridge the gap through dialogue. There are no quick solutions; continue to reach out until you see a light at the end of the tunnel.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

A powerful emotional storm may be brewing on the horizon yet it’s hard to put your finger on the source of the disturbance today. Rather than obsessing over something you don’t understand, take care of your immediate responsibilities. Be as practical as possible when mapping out your schedule, especially if you have deadlines looming. Although it’s difficult to prioritize which tasks should come first, pay attention to the ones that have the most impact in the present moment.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

If you are overwhelmed by a relationship dilemma these days, you might seek respite by burying yourself in work. You may even take on additional obligations just so you don’t have to deal with your emotions. Nevertheless, avoidance isn’t the answer; a gentle confrontation today can achieve better results. It’s not necessary to overcome all obstacles at once as long as you acknowledge whatever is holding you back. Simply being honest helps more than you think.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Your current need for excitement places additional stress on a relationship. You might even feel as if the expectations of someone close to you are keeping you from expressing your feelings. You could grow disillusioned if you slip into denial to avoid upsetting the status quo. But hiding your frustration does more harm than good. Thankfully, initiating action grows easier over time. Make a practical plan now that enables you to explore your creative pursuits and still honor your obligations.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You might think that you should be at the top of your game with all the planetary action in your sign now, but you need more than just the promise of a good time to set things right. The intensity level may be too much to handle today, even for you drama-loving Lions. Give meditation or prayer a chance to help you maintain a positive attitude. But don’t sit still for too long; anything that gets your physical energy moving will also help to calm your nerves.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You could question everything that you do today, especially if your activities don’t resonate with your heart. However, you may have chores to finish before you can take some time to contemplate your destiny. No matter how far along you are on your spiritual journey, you still have much to learn about yourself. There is no reason to waste energy feeding your doubts. Whatever you do, don’t ignore your inner voice now. Let your intuition be your guide.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You may be required to stand up for what you want today. No one ever said that making your way in the world would be easy, especially if your personal views get tangled up with the truth. Don’t confuse your values with facts or people might question your motives. It’s best to take your intuition seriously now without losing touch with your common sense. Others can’t blame you for speaking from your heart if you allow them to do the same

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You can’t deny your passionate nature now that your key planet Pluto is activating your desires. Meanwhile, dynamic Mars is back home in your sign, causing the emotional fires to burn even hotter. Thankfully, your good intentions, unflappable will and unrelenting strength empower you to perform profound magic and overcome all odds. There’s no time to waste; ironically, everyone benefits from your personal transformation.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Unexpressed resentment can rear its ugly head today, motivating you to come across with more intensity than you actually feel. In fact, someone might see you as a threat, so it’s to your advantage to keep things calm. On the other hand, your magnetism is electric so there may be pleasant fireworks in the love arena. Nevertheless, your current situation isn’t ideal. Rather than trying to resolve any dilemmas now, living within the paradox leads to its own version of happiness.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You have an uncanny knack for knowing exactly how hard to push forward and how much to hold back. It’s tricky to live by this innate common sense now, but it’s crucial to do so, nonetheless. These are strange times that benefit from your strategic calculations rather than spontaneous actions. Don’t be afraid to temporarily drop your anchor wherever you are today so you won’t veer too far off course. Exploring new territory is more productive when you don’t get lost.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You may be slightly uncomfortable with the intense passion you’re feeling today. Logically, you realize it would be wise to suppress your wild desires because your resources are already stretched to the maximum. Although fulfilling your responsibilities might slow you down now, they won’t hold you back for long. Set your sights high and don’t be afraid to invest in your dreams.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Unspoken desires are inextricably linked to issues of power today. You may have the urge to act impulsively to show your strength, but your behavior might be driven by unconscious motives now. Unfortunately, if you deny your emotions, they can escape when you least expect it. But if you express your feelings too casually, you could find yourself in over your head. Move slowly and deliberately; you have more time than you realize to share your heart.

Your Horoscopes for Saturday, July 26th

Starting a major project captures the energy of the Moon’s shift into expressive Leo at 10:54 am EDT, followed by her hookup with bountiful Jupiter. There is no reason to wait any longer because the dramatic Leo New Moon at 6:41 pm marks the beginning of an auspicious creative cycle. We can ritualize our intentions by taking initiative on our own. Nevertheless, a little self-restraint goes a long way while Jupiter encourages excessive behavior.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You feel free to be yourself today without worrying about receiving approval from anyone else. You don’t want to suppress your creative process with the Leo New Moon stimulating your 5th House of Spontaneity. If you have been anticipating changing directions, strike while the iron is hot and approach everything you do with a playful attitude now. If you aren’t having a good time, perhaps you should improve your attitude or try your hand at something else.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You may be building your domain on shifting sands as today’s dynamic Leo New Moon rattles your 4th House of Roots. Although the exuberant Jupiter connection enables you to display an air of confidence, you might not feel as secure as you appear. Even if your close friends and family usually support your efforts, issues come to light now that have you wondering if you can truly count on them. Although honest dialogue is enlightening, your truth must come from within.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Your schedule might end up being an albatross around your neck today if you attempt to fit too much into one day. The universe is sending you private messages, reminding you to slow down and smell the roses. The expressive Leo New Moon illuminates your 3rd House of Immediate Environment, intensifying your interactions with those closest to you. If a seemingly innocuous event turns into a more serious problem, don’t feed the drama with additional negativity of your own. Happily, your positive input can inspire others to see things in a better light.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You might have to change how you manage your money since today’s Leo New Moon falls in your 2nd House of Personal Resources. You may be spending your cash under the illusion that you have more than you actually do. But you should consider your overall relationship to your current possessions and whatever else you want in your future. As you already know, material wealth is not the true source of happiness; concentrate your efforts on what really matters in the long run.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

It’s a perfect day to create a fresh list of goals because today’s proud Leo New Moon celebrates a new beginning in your life. But just writing your wishes down on paper won’t have the positive impact you desire because it is the act of focusing your intentions that sets your life into motion. Once you visualize whatever you want in your mind’s eye, commit to be unrelenting in reaching your objectives. The sky is the limit if you’re willing to put in the time and effort to make your dreams come true.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You have arrived at a crossroads where your intuition is telling you one thing, but the facts are telling you something else. You might be able to rationalize your behavior now, even if it is different from what you logically know is best. But this Leo New Moon’s presence in your 12th House of Destiny prompts a spiritual crisis as you try to align your actions with your beliefs. Don’t worry if others can’t understand your emotional dilemma today. Follow your dreams wherever they lead.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Your social calendar could fall apart at the last minute with today’s Leo New Moon landing in your 11th House of Networking. But rather than taking a disruption personally, it’s wiser to realize that some things are simply beyond your control. The drama of the day could run you through a gamut of emotions. But don’t overreact and rush to put everything back together yet. Uncertainty is in the air, so avoid drawing any final conclusions until the dust settles. Flexibility is your friend.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Voluntarily keeping a secret is one thing, but being pressured to remain silent is entirely different. Today’s showy Leo New Moon zaps your 10th House of Public Life, making it nearly impossible to hide your feelings for long. However, there’s no justification for blame or mean-spirited behavior. Instant karma will get you as unnecessary negativity is reflected back to you faster than you expect. Go ahead and say whatever needs to be said, but be soft-spoken and kind in your delivery.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You may feel like celebrating today rather than tackling your chores yet, ironically, you could increase your chances for finding pleasure by meeting your responsibilities first. It’s not that you can’t have a good time with the audacious Leo New Moon activating your 9th House of Adventure. But extravagance might get in your way, especially if you want to prove something to someone else. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with a playful approach, but everyone will have more fun if you avoid competition.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Trouble surfaces in an intimate relationship today if anyone is anything less than fully honest. The theatrical Leo New Moon emphasizes your 8th House of Deep Sharing, making it tough to hide any secret agendas. Relationship dynamics may be stressed when unspoken resentments or buried jealousies see the light of day. However, the temporary emotional discomfort is worth it if getting things out in the open makes everyone feel better in the long run.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You may be surprised by an energetic shift in your business and personal relationships as today’s lively Leo New Moon triggers your 7th House of Partners. Unfortunately, your resistance to change can fuel a heated discussion. But your disagreement is actually with yourself — even if someone else appears to be involved. Nevertheless, exploring your inner conflict enables you to embrace the unknown rather than clinging to the status quo.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You really want to put your life in order, but you are being pulled in opposing directions today. The Leo New Moon’s presence in your 6th House of Daily Routine urges you to suppress your emotions so you can efficiently handle your obligations. But the heart-centered Leo Sun encourages you to playfully express your inner child. Avoid your current tendency to slip into denial because your feelings seem out of place. It’s healthier to keep your passions close to the surface, even if you don’t yet see how they will eventually fit into the bigger picture.

New Moon in Leo Horoscopes

New Moon in Leo Horoscopes

Go big or go home

Jeff JawerJeff Jawer on the topics of new moon, leo, horoscopes
Leo is a bold sign of self-expression, creativity and personal power. This New Moon on July 26 at 6:42 p.m. EDT sparks a revival of hope, a rising wave of enthusiasm and an instinct to take chances. Caution is gone with the wind as adventurous Jupiter, which entered the Lion’s roaring sign only ten days earlier, is conjunct this union of the Sun and Moon. Yes, we may overreach and promise more than we can deliver, but having the courage to stretch our limits is a risk worth taking.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Your heart can open with joy as this fiery lunation lights up your 5th House of Romance. Gigantic Jupiter’s conjunction with the Sun and Moon in Leo makes every emotion seem bigger than life. Still, your acerbic planet Mars in spicy Scorpio squares this New Moon to bring out your competitive side. The message is to prune your garden of hopes, eliminate unrealizable dreams and make way for bigger and better ones to come.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Family matters can take a dramatic turn with the expressive Leo New Moon landing in your domestic 4th House of Security. Expansive Jupiter’s conjunction to this lunation can amplify feelings, turning a spark of discontent into a bonfire of emotions. Yet this powerful event may incite you to take chances meant to turn an ordinary life into an extraordinary one. High hopes, though, require plenty of ground work to support your ambitions.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Your usual verbal skills are kicked up a notch with this audacious Leo New Moon in your 3rd House of Communication. Imagination and enthusiasm fuel your powers of persuasion, enabling you to entertain and inspire others. There is, though, a risk of promising too much or overstating your case, which will cut your credibility. Spend as much time learning as talking to make the most of this empowering event.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Having bold ideas about money make sense with this grandiose Leo New Moon in your 2nd House of Resources. Expansive Jupiter’s close proximity to this lunation can inspire you to invest in yourself as a way to earn more money and recognition. Just be careful about expenses because a tendency to get excited about shiny things (and exciting experiences) may wind up costing you much more than they are worth.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

This is your signal to shoot for the Moon. Expansive Jupiter’s conjunction with this lunation opens your mind and heart, empowering you to go for more of whatever you desire. Think big, enormous even, yet focus your aim carefully to produce results. Anybody can make promises but it’s by maintaining concentration and mastering critical details that will make the difference between success and frustration.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

This powerful New Moon lands in your private 12th House of Spirituality where it can fill you up with a virtually unlimited dose of creativity. You may need time away from your routine obligations to fully benefit from this conflagration of imagination. Faith and spirituality are also fired up to provide confidence that you didn’t know you had. Nourish your dream now and the means to make it come true can follow in the weeks ahead.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

Instead of following the lead of outgoing friends and colleagues, this New Moon is your signal to come on stronger. It occurs in your 11th House of Groups and is joined by optimistic Jupiter to broaden your role as part of a team. The keys to taking your place in the sun are belief in what you’re doing and the willingness to take bold action. You may even have to ruffle others’ feathers for your ambitions to take flight.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

There’s little chance to stay objective about your work with this blast furnace of a Leo New Moon in your 10th House of Career. Gigantic Jupiter joins this lunation to expand your ambitions, yet a challenging square from Mars in Scorpio reminds you to eliminate excess before making a major move. You could be in for a fight, so make it about getting ahead instead of simply holding onto what you already have.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

Your natural instinct for wanderlust is heightened by this adventurous Leo New Moon. It lands in your 9th House of Mental and Physical Travel, supercharged by a conjunction with expansive Jupiter. Scratching your itch for fresh experiences and ideas is a more desirable way to use this vast reserve of energy than allowing boredom and frustration to spend it all in conflict with those who don’t share your beliefs.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

Personal and professional partnerships will require a greater degree of engagement with this bold Leo New Moon in your 8th House of Deep Sharing. If you’re not willing to take chances by investing more of your heart, money of enthusiasm, it’s a signal that this alliance might have reached its limit. Playing it safe is less likely to work than expecting more and giving more to create more exciting relationships.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

Reason may be overcome by powerful feelings about reaching out to people with this dramatic Leo New Moon in your 7th House of Others. Optimistic Jupiter’s conjunction with this lunation can attract audacious individuals with brash ideas and high expectations. It’s even better, though, for you to take the initiative in relationships and by going public with a big plan than by letting someone else lead the way.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)

This fiery Leo New Moon is supercharged by a conjunction with expansive and visionary Jupiter. It occurs in your 6th House of Work where you could feel overwhelmed by obligations or, even better, when your enthusiasm grows. Being more assertive in expressing your opinions might not always be appreciated, yet you will gain more confidence and earn more recognition by taking chances than by playing it safe.
