Your Deck of Ancient Symbols Card for Sept. 3rd is Balance

Your Deck of Ancient Symbols Card for Today


Balance denotes the benefits of keeping the use of your energies justifiably proportioned between your pursuits. The symbol Yin and Yang is used to represent the balance. Yin and Yang is possibly the most elegant and sometimes elusive definition of Balance there is. While Balance is rarely if ever perfect, being far out of Balance means that while one part of you may be thriving tremendously, another part of your life may be wilting.

As a daily card, Balance indicates a need to find and maintain a level physical and spiritual state. It suggest you may be concentrating your energy on one or a few things so much that you are neglecting other important aspects of your life. While this is often necessary to make immediate gains it can lead to missing out on the diverse richness of life in the long term.

Today’s I Ching Hexagram for Sept. 3rd is 51: Shock

51: Shock

Hexagram 51
General Meaning: One hears thunder unexpectedly! First comes fear, then a sharpening of one’s vision. Recall a close brush with danger — a falling branch, an automobile accident barely avoided, an escape from a potentially violent confrontation. Such incidents arouse every nerve fiber in your body in a brief wave of terror, but soon, once the danger has passed, give way to a heightened awareness of the world. The same process also occurs with other types of shock — the loss of a job, the sudden departure of a loved one, business failure and so on.

The lasting impact of a major shock can either be stimulating or debilitating, depending upon one’s strength of character. The critical factor is the ability to shake off fear, thereby transforming anxiety into a laser-sharp perception of the world around you.

When overtaken by crisis, the wise search their hearts for inner strengths in order to face their life with courage. This often means daring to take an unexpected path — to bounce back quickly and self-confidently after failures, to have faith in the eternal when confronted with death.

We tend to think of shock only in the context of unpleasant events. We can also be jarred, however, by the sudden release of tension that comes with unexpected joy or success. To keep your bearings in the aftershock of either trauma or victory, it is essential that your inner compass be aligned with ‘true north’, that magnetic force which guides you toward fulfillment of both your deepest desire, and your highest destiny.

Today’s Runes for September 3rd is Algiz

Today’s Runes

Spirit Runes are most commonly used for questions about mysticism, spirituality, and religion. Algiz can be easily recognized as the antlers of the elk that it represents. The elk can represent victory, but is much more appropriately associated with the thrill of the hunt itself. This rune therefore can portend vigor and success in active endeavors. Also, this rune seems symbolic of a hand with outstretched fingers – a protective hand. This hand may suggest that you will be shielded from things negative – the problems still exist, you are spared the brunt of their force.

Today’s Tarot Card for Sept. 3rd is The Hierophant

The Hierophant


This Tarot Deck: Esoterico

General Meaning: Traditionally known as the Hierophant, this card refers to a Master and the learning of practical lessons from the study of Natural Law. This energy of this card points to some agent or resource that can reveal the secrets of life, the cycles of the moon and tides, the links between human beings and the heavens.

Because monasteries were the only places a person could learn to read and write in the middle ages, a Hierophant was one to whom a student would petition for entry. He was the one to set the curriculum for the neophyte’s course of study.

Often pictured with the right hand raised in blessing, the Hierophant is linked with the ancient lineage of Melchezidek, initiator of the Hebrew priestly tradition, the one who passes on the teachings. All shamans of any tradition draw upon this archetype

Your Daily Horoscopes for Saturday, Sept. 3rd

Although the emotionally charged Scorpio Moon continues to bring transformation into our lives today, we can lose focus when she squares nebulous Neptune. Thankfully, seeing the brighter side of a situation can turn a tense set of circumstances into one where everyone emerges a winner. The Moon’s entry into adventurous Sagittarius at 5:03 pm EDT encourages us to take risks and her trine to wild Uranus foretells memorable experiences.


Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

What you say today has more impact than usual so remember to choose your words very carefully. Instead of impulsively blabbering away about whatever comes to mind, consider what you want before you speak. However, keep in mind your natural tendency is to overlook the details. Use positive images to inspire others, but don’t gloss over what’s important just because it doesn’t support your vision.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

Your ability to say exactly the right thing can help you through a tricky situation today, while allowing you to inadvertently promise more than you can deliver. Unfortunately, you may not realize what you’ve said until it’s too late. Speaking before you think increases the stress; make sure to balance any positive immediate effect with the potential long-term consequences.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

Daydreaming is a great way to visualize different scenarios before you pick out the right one to follow. Your thoughts can take you on a spectacular journey today; however, individually each one seems so good that you simply cannot make up your mind. There isn’t any reason to force making a choice right away, so just enjoy the present moment while it lasts.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

You may be a bit detached from everyone around you today. It’s as if getting close to someone now activates a memory of an old emotional wound. But don’t be too harsh a critic because your energy will continue to morph and change. Practice letting go of your desire to control everything; your adaptability helps you turn a complex day into a simply joyous one.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You might be feeling sorry for yourself today, especially if others tell you that you should be living a less complicated life. But you recently made decisions that suggest you like to have a variety of options at your disposal. However, don’t waste too much energy arguing with anyone else or you’ll wear yourself out before you can make the right choice. Ultimately, the only person you have to please is yourself.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

The Moon’s stressful square with motor-mouthed Mercury reminds you to forget about your worries and see how far you can take one great idea, instead. But it’s not a day of impractical fantasies, so don’t bother trying to escape from the practical side of life. Keep your feet firmly planted on the ground, even while allowing new ideas to inspire your dreams.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You may feel optimistic today, but it’s not easy to put your big ideas into action. Your patience will ultimately be rewarded, freeing you to talk about your plans. Once the Moon enters fiery Sagittarius in the afternoon you remember how much fun you can have when you take off on an adventure. Don’t hold back; start something new and exciting when the universe tells you that it’s time.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Although you may begin the day with a high level of anxiety, your current emotional overload may be exactly the catalyst you need. You might prefer to keep quiet now, because once you begin sharing you could end up saying way more than you originally intended. Don’t worry if you overreact in the early morning, for there’s still time to find your way back to a more comfortable place later in the day.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

The Moon’s return to your extroverted sign this afternoon is an exciting wake-up call. You can consciously set patterns for the next couple of weeks, but it may be smarter to simply focus on what’s happening in the immediate moment, instead. Once the reset is complete and you are fully engaged in the here-and-now, it becomes much easier to imagine the amazing possibilities of the future.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You may still be on your guard today, especially if you recently had a few days of very intense interactions. Unfortunately, the lack of any real romance on your horizon could be the source of your unhappiness. Fortunately, you can shift your attention to seek satisfaction professionally. You’re a champion when it comes to working hard and now this innate characteristic pays off handsomely. But even if you are proud of your accomplishments, don’t totally ignore your heart.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You are blessed with the gift of gab now and everywhere you turn, the words just fall right out of your mouth. You love to talk about your recent experiences, yet this isn’t a time to reminisce about past achievements. Throw caution to the wind and open your mind to a wide variety of possibilities before settling down and choosing one. Visualizing your future is the first step to creating your dreams.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Others may get lost as they try to follow your thinking today because your thoughts are slipping in and out of fantasies and parallel universes, making everything quite complex. But even if you can’t untangle your words, you still can reach your audience in other ways by playing a song, reading a poem or drawing a picture. Set aside your tech manuals and science books for now and let your creative genius shine.
