Today’s Tarot Card for June 13 is The Empress

The Empress

This Tarot Deck: Crowley

General Meaning: Traditionally entitled “Empress,” this major arcana or “trump” card portrays the energy of the Great Mother. She is Nature, around us but also within us, the ever-unfolding Source of life-giving power. She is often pictured as a pre-Christian Goddess, as the one whom the High Priestess is channeling down to earth for the rest of us.

In medieval Europe, the Empress card was painted to represent whatever Queen currently ruled the land, probably to satisfy the Inquisitors. But the scholars of the Renaissance and beyond had no doubt of her true identity, although she could not be fully revealed on Tarot cards as the “woman clothed with the sun” until after the French Revolution.

This supreme archetype of femininity also symbolizes fertility. It is She who provides us nourishment and security. She is also sometimes seen as delighting us with flowers and fruit. A potentially terrifying aspect of this archetype manifests itself whenever karmic mood swings wipe out our plans, like a storm that has come upon us. Whatever happens, the Empress is the Source of our Embodiment and of Natural Law. She might even be called “the Great Recycler.”

Your Daily Horoscopes for June 13

The Moon is in transformational Scorpio most of the day, reflecting our need to change even as we attempt to delve deeper into our current feelings. We’re reminded of old emotional wounds as loving Venus dynamically squares healing Chiron. Although we understand the importance of forgiveness, it’s not easy to let go of the past. However, the Moon moves into uplifting Sagittarius at 10:38 pm EDT, encouraging us to dream of the possibilities ahead.


Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

It may be difficult to make your point today because you might be so serious that you scare someone away before you explain what’s on your mind. Once you realize what’s happening, you’re tempted to overcompensate and become so accommodating that you back away from even broaching the topic. Although you could feel pushed and pulled by the changing tides, it’s still possible to be effective. Take your time and think about what you’re going to say before you open your mouth.



Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

It has become more complicated to say something that may have been easier to share last week. Somehow, the current situation has changed so much that you could be feeling insecure about expressing your feelings. Although you might muster up the courage to finish a recent conversation, you’re quickly tempted to abandon your plans. There’s no need to overreact; take the additional time required to resolve a delicate relationship issue.



Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

You might be looking forward to enjoying the company of a friend, but first there is that annoying problem of your job. You’re ready for a good time, yet it would be wise to treat your obligations seriously first. Once your work is done, you can create a bit of adventure in your personal life. Naturally, you could go off and do something by yourself, but the Moon’s shift into your 7th House of Companions indicates that you’d have much more fun being with others.



Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

A lazy morning sounds ideal to you today even if your job or school is beckoning. Unfortunately, circumstances probably won’t let you have the downtime you seek until late this evening or tomorrow. There are too many tasks on your agenda, preventing you from settling in at home. Thankfully, if you psych yourself up to meet your deadlines, you are able to have fun, even while doing your work.



Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You may have family responsibilities that you cannot avoid today, but you could get a second wind later in the day and end up doing something special that you enjoy. If it’s been a struggle lately to express your feelings about a complicated domestic matter, you might finally find a way that works now. Your new positive attitude can lighten and brighten your evening. Don’t waste energy worrying about your upcoming deadlines; instead, use your optimism to motivate you to do your best.


Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Although you may try to focus on the tasks you must finish today, you’ll probably grow more distracted as the day unfolds. However, your ability to cleverly hide your scattered energy behind a smokescreen of productivity prevents others from seeing that you’ve temporarily lost your way. You know how much more you could accomplish if you concentrate now, so avoid disappointment by restating your intent and pulling yourself back onto the path.



Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Everything seems to take longer today because it’s difficult for you to shift into high gear. Even if you believe that many exciting experiences are waiting around the corner, you aren’t ready for them just yet. Fortunately, the energy picks up later in the day when the possibility of fun becomes a motivational factor. But don’t hesitate until it’s too late; plan for pleasure while there’s still enough time to make it happen.



Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You like the idea of slowing down the pace of your life, but turning your intentions into reality may require at least one more day. Still, it’s healthy to realize that whatever you are doing today may not be as urgent as it seems. Even if there’s a lot to accomplish, don’t wear yourself out. Schedule time to rest and relax over the next couple of days because you will need your energy later in the week.



Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You’re eager for tomorrow to arrive because the Moon’s current visit to your 12th House of Secrets makes it difficult for you to feel comfortable sharing your ideas. It may seem as if someone in particular is thwarting your progress, but the outer resistance is more likely a projection of your own uncertainty. Thankfully, your instincts are correct; this temporary condition will pass after your emotions play through their natural process.



Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You have enough common sense to recognize that one of your pet ideas may have finally run its course. One phase is coming to an end, yet it isn’t time to move on. Nevertheless, it can be helpful to visualize what your world might be like once your old assumptions fade. Remember, the power of your imagination is growing stronger now and could enable you to turn your dreams into something really special.


Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

A recent failure may still be preventing you from seeing the positive potential of unstable dynamics now at play in your life. Being afraid of what’s around the next corner could have a negative impact. Fortunately, you are at a turning point and can gain a lot by facing your insecurities. Overcoming anxiety based on your past enables you to create your future. Transforming fear into hope is a sensible strategy whenever possible.


Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You may need to handle more responsibility this week than you want. You would prefer to wander aimlessly and explore which dreams to follow now. Nevertheless, others are looking to you for inspiration and you don’t want to let them down. Instead of worrying about what could possibly go wrong, concentrate on doing the greatest good. Don’t be overly concerned with the details; just keep your mind set on your destination.

Monday, June 13, 2011

Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Time for an excursion! Remember to pack some sandwiches, and carry a large ball of twine (it’s easy to get lost in the city — the twine should help).
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
You have exactly as much chance of having a decent day as you have of developing amazing telekinetic abilities that let you secretly give innocent passers-by a wedgie. Stay home. Breathe normally.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Today you will find that you can make an incredibly silly sound, and will spend the entire day making it, and then laughing.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Good day to bring home an insectivore as a pet.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Good time to go into business making measuring spoons. Good ones to start with would be a “smidgeon” and a “pinch.”
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Today you will read a small booklet titled How To Make A Fortune in Frog Farming, which will change your life.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Beware of rodents.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Excellent day to make odd hand gestures at people you don’t know.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Time to throw down the gauntlet. Or, if you can’t find a gauntlet, a ski mitten will do. Just make sure you throw it down. (That’s one heck of a lot more fun than throwing it up.)
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)
It will occur to you to wonder, what if Jesus had actually said “The geek shall inherit the earth”, but was just misquoted? Then you’ll think of Bill Gates. Then you’ll start to worry.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)
Good time to consider capitalizing on the wave of 70’s nostalgia that is sweeping the land. Why not try making shag carpeting? At least you should sit around in your beanbag chairs and discuss it.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
It’s time to get a new perspective on your job. Try to think of work as a great big funhouse. Just without the fun.

A protective home mojo from the Hoodoo Tradition

Mojos are small bags containing an odd number of symbols (one to thirteen) associated with particular energies. Protective mojos are good if you live in a high-crime or  lonely area, or you have a difficult ex-partner who seeks constant access to your home.

Items You Will Need:

A small drawstring bag of red flannel (the traditional mojo fabric) or brown material ( suitable for domestic protection); a piece of angelica root or  some dried angelica (available from herbal stores); some salt and pepper; waxed paper (the kind used in cake making); some patchouli oil or brandy.


After dark.

The Spell:

  • Place the angelica root directly into the bag or twist some dried angelica in a piece of waxed paper and put it in.
  • Twist some salt in a piece of waxed paper and add it to the bag.
  • Twist some pepper in a piece of waxed paper and add it to the bag.
  • Add a few drops of the patchouli oil or brandy to the bag.
  • Draw the string tight and say: “May protection last till one (or two) moons are pasted.”
  • Keep the bag somewhere near the front door, out of sight. (Mojos lose their power if seen.)
