Your Ancient Symbol Card for June 4 is Wisdom

Your Ancient Symbol Card for Today

Wisdom



A very very few of us are fortunate to be born wise. For most of us our Wisdom evolves, grows as we move through life gathering experience and knowledge. Wisdom denotes your thoughts and feelings derived from the melding of your life experiences with all that you have learned. Our Wisdom can get us through the difficult moments in our lives as well as provide the mental and spiritual tools we need to succeed.

As a daily card, Wisdom indicates a time when you should rely heavily on past experiences and knowledge attained to make important decisions in your life. This is a time where reflection and planning should guide your actions. To act rashly, on impulse at this time may well cost you in the future. Go slow, think things out, weigh all of your options carefully and then proceed.

Your Crowley Thoth Tarot Card for Today

The Devil



The Devil is the more perplexing cards one can draw in a reading. He represents all that most find undesirable, distasteful. He embodies the seven deadly sins (Lust, Gluttony, Avarice, Sloth, Wrath, Envy, Pride). The Devil is evil personified. However, it is unlikely his presence in your cards means you are most suited to be a child of Satan. Think of the saying “Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.” The more plausible explanation is that you are actually quite moral, and feel a deep duty to oppose the dark forces The Devil embodies. This in no way implies you should establish your own inquisition, but simply that you are acutely aware of the destructive influences in our world and have the strength to resist them.

This Week’s Tarot Card Reading: The Emperor

Your weekly Tarot card advice for June 4-10, 2018

 

This week The Emperor gives you a jolt of confidence. This is great — you need it! We 4can’t have you sliding back into a place of doubt when there is so much to be done with this month’s gift of a renewed sense of purpose. So how might this Emperor energy manifest for you this week? Well, most obviously, knowing what you want gives you so much more conviction and drive to act. When you have vision and feel more in control of your circumstances, little bumps in the road are easier to dismiss along the way because you can see past them to the bigger picture.

Just remember that with this kind of authority comes responsibility. When you are in charge, be careful about how you treat other people. Yes, they are a part of your story, in a way, but they are all living their own missions, too. A good leader doesn’t rule over others. A good leader negotiates, collaborates, practices compassion, and finds solutions that fit everyone’s needs. This can apply in both career and personal settings. Use your newfound power to inspire and encourage others to be their best selves, then use that collective energy to propel you forward into manifesting your visions.

Your Tarot Card of the Day for June 4 is The Fool

Tarot Card of the Day

The Fool


0
Pamela Coleman-Smith’s artful rendition of The Fool in the Rider-Waite Tarot deck is often used to represent Tarot in general. Early classical versions of The Fool card, however, portray quite a different character — a person driven by base needs and urges, who has fallen into a state of poverty and deprivation.

In some earlier instances, The Fool is made out to be a carnival entertainer or a huckster. In others, he is portrayed as decrepit and vulnerable — as the cumulative result of his delusions and failures. Not until the 20th century do you see the popular Rider-Waite image of The Fool arise — that of an innocent soul before its fall into matter, untainted by contact with society and all its ills.

Modern decks usually borrow from the Rider-Waite imagery. Most Fool cards copy the bucolic mountainside scene, the butterfly, and the potential misplaced step that will send The Fool tumbling into the unknown. Don’t forget, though, that the earlier versions of this card represented already-fallen humanity, over-identified with the material plane of existence, and beginning a pilgrimage toward self-knowledge and, eventually, wisdom. The Fool reminds us to recognize the path of personal development within ourselves — and the stage upon that path where we find ourselves — in order to energize our movement toward deeper self-realization.

If You Were Born Today, June 4

Happy Birthday 4

If You Were Born Today, June 4

You are ambitious with a good head on your shoulders, particularly for business. You know what to do to get the job done. You are hard working and very conscientious, no matter what job you do, but especially so when inspired. At times you can drive yourself too hard. When irritated, you can be a little bossy or arrogant, but overall, you are quite companionable and friendly. Famous people born today: Angelina Jolie, Dr. Ruth Westheimer, Parker Stevenson, Bruce Dern.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

With the Sun and Moon in harmony in your Solar Return chart again this year, the year ahead should be satisfying and balanced overall. You are in comfortable demand and personally popular, and you are able to achieve a decent balance between work and play; personal and professional life. For the most part, you are on top of your game this year, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there is less stress on both your mind and body. Your self-confidence and positive attitude will reward you!

Neptune ends its transiting square to your Sun in December, but until then, there will continue to be times when you combat low energy and motivation levels. It’s important to be selective when it comes to projects or answering demands. A noncommittal attitude in your personal life could leave people in your life feeling frustrated with you as you attempt to find yourself. Your self-image is being re-worked, and you are becoming more sensitive to a greater, perhaps more spiritual, sense of purpose. From December forward, considerably more clarity is in your life.

This can be an exceptionally busy year on a mental level. At times, you may feel like the pace of your life is running ahead of you. You can be especially productive, however, in all types of communications–writing, speaking, learning, teaching, and so forth. Your reputation may be enhanced through word of mouth. Making new contacts through learning and mental pursuits figures strongly as well.

Certain relationships grow and expand this year or there can be the growth of a money-making pursuit or a satisfying hobby. Pleasing circumstances surrounding your love life, finances, and creative pursuits are in store this year. You are more generous, and others return the favor. You might receive financial backing or special gifts in the period ahead. You seek a little more from your love life and you are likely to receive it. Some of you could fall in love this year, or existing relationships are enhanced. Adventure-seeking is a theme. Benefits come through paying attention to your dreams and intuitions, as well as through creativity.

However, intensity characterizes your personal relationships and romantic attachments. Passions, feelings of jealousy, and possessiveness can run high, and these emotions are in direct proportion to fear of losing someone. You are likely to have to deal with these emotions in yourself, but you may also need to handle the jealousies and possessiveness of a partner. Relationships may be complicated or you seem drawn to complicated relationships. The need for deeper intimacy is present, but fear of this closeness may be just as strong. Something tiny can trigger all sorts of buried emotions, and this can be very revealing! Instead, there may be some tension over your personal finances, and/or need to make a large payment that necessitates changes in your spending habits. Finances may be complicated or there are power struggles with money this year.

Idealistic and humanitarian goals or impulses surface this year. Making connections with others from different backgrounds may figure strongly. Widening your mind through unusual or different experiences can be part of the picture. You more easily make personal sacrifices for what you believe to be the better good this year.

You are inclined to put your ideas into action than usual, and you have good energy with you for debate or energetic mental work. Your mind is clear and active this year, and it can be a great time to cut down on wasteful activities. You can convey your ideas powerfully. You are quick to take the initiative. Travel may be in the picture and significant now.

You’re in an excellent position for personal interests, education, and projects, as you are more committed to these things than usual. It’s a relationship-focused year and your social life can transform in wonderful and perhaps magical ways, although some relationships can be complicated. You’re motivated regarding your personal interests and projects, and life can be very busy this year. Even so, until December, energy levels are up and down until you get in touch with what inspires you.

2018 is a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time when you find it natural and easy to enjoy life and other people. The focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure than you are in other years. It’s likely to be a rather lighthearted year when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a favorable year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out and connect but avoid scattering your energies.

2019 will be a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It’s “nose to the grindstone” time. It’s a time to pay special attention to practical matters, and it’s not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Positive new relationships are often not formed in a Four personal year. However, it can be a wonderful year for building, development, and laying a solid foundation for future successes. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.

 

Your Weekly Karma Forecast: June 3 – 9, 2018

Weekly Forecast: June 3 – 9, 2018

The Karmic Tools Weekly Forecast covers the current planetary transits which affect people in different ways and to various degrees of intensity. Take notice when it is a Personal planet (Sun / Moon / Mercury / Venus / Mars) interacting with a Social (Jupiter/Saturn) or Collective planet (Uranus / Neptune/Pluto). And pay extremely close attention when it is a Social planet interacting with a Collective planet because that means something *big* is brewing that will move large groups of people along their evolutionary paths. Tuning in to the energy and rhythm of the planets can serve as a useful *guide* as you move along your Individual Path. It also helps to understand your place within the context of the larger Social & Collective Story. Below, you will find out how these energies tend to manifest, as well as guidance and direction.

*NOTE*  There are some days when there are NO CONTACTS (besides the Moon), please note that there are no missing entries, we just list the actual Activations of each week + the day they happen. 

Weekly Forecast:  June 3 – June 9, 2018

6/5 ~ Mercury (communication & self-expression) ~conjunct~ Sun (core essential Self):

This energy will compel you to express yourself on many levels. Communication will be a focus, just make sure it is reciprocated. You will have access to some powerful energy that can (and probably will) make quite an impression on others (if you need to). This is a good time to travel if possible too. However, if not physically, then mentally and certainly within your own area, you will take in more information per square inch than usual. Pay attention! You may even gain the much-deserved recognition from others that you have worked so hard for.

6/5 ~ Venus (relationships & resources) ~oppose~ Pluto (purification & transformation):

Classic opposition: anything with Venus is usually softened, while anything with Pluto is always intensified, and the opposition automatically brings up the push-pull between these two. You are encouraged to tune into your own heart and then you can trust what is rising from your own depths. Also, any opposition gives you a look back at your starting point, so you have more clear vision than you may be giving your Self credit for. Either way, this energy intensifies experiences where your relationships & resources are concerned. If you have focused on love, to the exclusion of money, then your finances will probably come up at this time for a rebalancing of sorts. If you’ve been focused on money, to the exclusion of supportive relationships, then that may be your focus. The bottom line is your true values are up for a purification of sorts. What/Who is really, truly important to you? How do you spend your resources of time, energy & money? What/Who are your real priorities right now? Often, we operate completely unconsciously (Pluto), being driven by deeper forces than we can fully understand. And periodically, we must allow them to come up/out so we can distill or release them so they become compost rather than toxic. Since you may feel ‘compulsive’ in some way, you may as well use that energy to make a deeper commitment to getting to the root or source of any imbalance rather than let it take you away to feed some unidentifiable famine in your life. Often, this activation tends to make you uncontrollably drawn to someone you know is not good for you, which can only result in problems. This energy provokes manipulation, jealousy, guilt and other negative emotions that always come when you are trying to maintain something that wasn’t meant to be in the first place. Again, don’t try to force YOUR will, it can only lead to a broken heart in the end. If you are already in an intense relationship, beware of subconscious impulses, hidden resentments, unexpressed anger or frustration. Expressing it at this time can be helpful if you present your concerns in a constructive way, however, you will have to be personally strong and vigilant in monitoring your own emotions in order to do that. Ultimately, if change needs to happen in your relationship, this will be the catalyst. This energy is only “bad” if you are unwilling to get to the real root or source of the given conflict. Otherwise, it is like a storm that clears the air and makes everything grow better.

6/6 ~ Mercury (communication) ~square~ Neptune (dissolution):

This is a mixed blessing energy. On one hand, it’s good for spiritual study and giving your dreams a little energy (if your schedule permits). On the other hand, it makes for major miscommunications between people. Try to think before speaking, because if it’s possible to misunderstand or not ‘get it’ altogether, it will happen this week. Be careful not to let “longing” for your dreams to come true, distort your judgment and mislead you into believing the illusion. With this energy, some people will deliberately deceive and others have to be careful not to be misled. Stick to the facts or stay quiet, for now. You may even be inclined to withhold information to avoid a confrontation – don’t do it. Communicate with your Self and God today, otherwise plan to be very clear in explaining yourself to others (humans) so there are no misunderstandings.

6/7 ~ Sun (core essential Self) ~square~ Neptune (illusions & delusions):

This activation can cause self-doubt, self-delusion and an overall confusion that seems to be sourced within or self-directed. It’s only temporary, this is just the Universe’s way of slowing you down so you can see where your goals may have been unrealistic or based on flights of fancy. If your energy is low and you’re feeling challenged to see the bright side of things, it is better to just time-out, rest & replenish (if possible) and most of all, do not initiate any grand plans as you are not really seeing things as they truly are at this time. Luckily, this is a pretty short-lived activation.

 

 

Your Cosmic Weather Horoscope – June 2018

Your Cosmic Weather Horoscope – June 2018

Cosmic Weather: June 2018

by Jane Lyle.

Website: The Astrology Room

 

Hello Summer! It’s June, we move towards the magical turning point of the Solstice, and the Sun’s astrology journey encourages us to enjoy the atmosphere of sociable Gemini, and sentimental Cancer. Love and friendship can flourish.

 

This month, two important retrogrades (Neptune and Mars) invite us to slow down and smell fragrant June roses, or taste a succulent strawberry. There are vital, vibrant details waiting for us to notice them everywhere. Our senses centre us. Yes, the world is still a turbulent and sometimes scary place, but in June we can release some of that tension. Neptune and Mars insist. How can we refuse?

Thought for June:

‘The days were longer then for time, like money, is measured by our needs, when summer afternoons were spacious, and the clock ticked slowly in the winter evenings.’ – George Eliot

 


 

 

Tuesday 12th June – Wednesday 13th June:

New Directions

Some fresh, sociable, and summery energy is signalled by three astrological moments this Tuesday and Wednesday. They bring a bright atmosphere to some corners of our lives during the month ahead.

Mercury enters Cancer, the Crab where its slightly surreal sense of humour entertains us. Venus swans into glamorous Leo, where the love goddess is playful, flirty, and loves entertainment.
And an energetic, talkative new Moon in Gemini marks a chatty, witty phase. It’s a good time to meet friends, make some new ones, or cook up a few sunny plans.

Mercury and Venus will gain extra sparkle and surprises as soon as they change signs. At that point they make a connection with eccentric Uranus, newly in Taurus. Spontaneous plans and unusual encounters make some of us smile, flexibility brings rewards around this time.

Here’s the astrology:

Mercury enters Cancer the Crab, 12th June – 29th June.
13th June: New Moon rises at 22 Gemini, The Twins
Venus enters Leo, the Lion, 13th June – 10th July.

 


 

 

Monday 18th June:

The Shape of Water: Neptune turns retrograde

Neptune is now to-ing and fro-ing across the middle degrees of fishy Pisces. We’re half-way through this once-in-a-lifetime event – Neptune last swam in Pisces waters between 1847 and 1861.

Back in 2011, when Neptune first dipped into the sign Pisces, I looked back at some 19th century Neptune in Pisces themes for clues about what might loom into view through the mists in our own time.

Neptune’s themes and rulerships in astrology are constant, but I imagined some of them would be expanded by Neptune being in its own home sign, Pisces. And after seven years of Neptune in Pisces, I’d say we can see some characteristically Neptunian trends all around us, echoing some mid-19th century themes.

Firstly, drugs. Hypnotic drugs and anaesthetics are ruled by Neptune. Opium and its derivatives, for instance, were (legal) 19th century favourites – used as painkillers, and appreciated by some for encouraging vivid dreams. Today, we are – sadly – seeing a terrible crisis in the private, recreational use of opioid drugs, notably in the USA. Addiction is another of Neptune’s themes, and includes both drugs and alcohol.

The legalisation of that 19th century favourite, cannabis, is unfolding too. Cannabis was another legal and popular Victorian drug – Queen Victoria was rumoured to find it very helpful for its painkilling properties.

“…..by the 1840s cannabis was being touted as one of the wonder-drugs of the age, as doctors out in the Empire reported excitedly that it was a ‘powerful and valuable remedy in hydrophobia, tetanus, cholera and many convulsive disorders’. The Provincial Medical and Surgical Journal seized on these reports and devoted its front-page to the new medicine, and in subsequent decades the plant was used to treat everything from tetanus, to period pains and mental illness.”

The developing investment market in legal cannabis for pleasure, and for medical, therapeutic use, is moving along rapidly now in 2018.

And further along on the hippie-trippy psychedelic front, there’s renewed serious research and interest in the use of psychedelic drugs, such as LSD, in the treatment of depression. Or, apparently, in micro-doses to enhance the inventive minds of those who work in Silicon Valley.

A shamanic-style boom in ritualistic ayahuasca ceremonies is yet another Neptune in Pisces trend – hallucinations, nausea, and spiritual enlightenment from an ancient South American vine. You have to surrender to your ayahuasca trip – and Pisces can be all about surrender.

Another big issue for Neptune in Pisces era is obviously water. Back in 2011 I wrote:

‘Water …is another major theme for these years – from pollution of the oceans, and its fish, and other creatures, to flooding, rainfall, healing, drinking, bathing, and combating water-bourne diseases such as cholera.

The idealisation of the sea, of inland waters, plus a passion for pristine environments and their water are likely to be part of this. Poison in the oceans, and oil from under the sea, ignite rage.’

And yes, water is indeed a major topic these days.

In the fun corner, we’re seeing a ‘mermaiding’ fitness trend – unbelievable, but this isn’t a Neptunian fantasy! Here’s Mermaid Melissa, back in 2013, swimming in a gigantic aquarium in Japan:

And you can now attend classes where you swim, wearing a mermaid tail…….

On a more sombre note, we are finally realising how dangerously polluted our oceans and inland waters have become, particularly by mountains of carelessly discarded plastic, wet wipes and so on. I fervently hope we can act swiftly and do something about this entirely avoidable horror before its way too late.

Water shortages are another area of concern around the world too.

Finally – although defining Neptune is always a slippery business – here are a few more possibilities and questions from 2011. We can see how they’re manifesting now we’ve had seven years of this foggy cosmic weather.

And if you’re having your own visit from confusing Neptune, this retrograde season might be a helpful time to see what’s been swimming up to the surface in your own life.

*‘Back in the 1840’s Europe was in a state of volatile change….the effects of the industrial revolution had created mass urban misery and poverty. So I wonder, what has the digital revolution created that people will reject or challenge?’

*‘Who is the individual? Who are the herd? We want union with others, to help foster social democracy, to belong somewhere, and to be joined together by our passions and beliefs.’

*’As boundaries dissolve, people find numerous ways to express themselves and escape narrow definitions of profession, gender, age, ethnic origin….we will ask ourselves, ‘whom do these boundaries serve?’

Neptune turns direct on 25th November. It’s in Pisces until January, 2026.

Neptune is retrograde in Pisces until Sunday, 25th November.

 


 

 

Thursday 21st June:

The Summer Solstice

The Sun enters Cancer the Crab today, and a new season begins with the Summer Solstice.

There’s magic in the air at such times. Folklore and ancient traditions tell us that we’re standing at a threshold. The door is open – we can step through, or we can welcome what flows towards us from the other side of that door. Enjoy the light.

 


 

 

Tuesday 26th June:

Mars Retrograde

Mighty Mars, planet of action and desire, is now rewinding until Monday, 27th August. We can expect delays, or even reversals, to projects and plans we’ve already started. Sounds annoying, but many projects can benefit from a slow-down or a review.

This can be an argumentative, fiery time, as Mars draws closer to us here on Earth. We’ll be able to see the Red Planet easily this summer – it’s at its closest approach to us in July. The phrase, ‘more haste, less speed’ could be a helpful one to remember.

Mars is a warrior and a sportsman. Mars was worshipped as the Roman god of war. We’ll need to remember to ‘give peace a chance’. And while we may not be able to influence governments, we can at least try to negotiate peaceful solutions in our own lives this summer.

Negotiating Mars Retrograde – astrology’s advice

With Mars in geeky Aquarius, in-depth reviews of tech, social media, and computer security are very worthwhile.

Mars retrogrades in general are a good time to revise and edit things. Beginning anything more dynamic – such as a business – during this phase could prove to be a struggle, with initiatives needing a rethink by October.

Mars retrograde is, traditionally, said to be a bad time to start a fight. Now, that could include a divorce, an employment dispute, a strike and so on. If you’re planning on making war this summer, you can fully expect your opponent to win the battle this time around – particularly if you make the first move.

This is not a great time to buy machinery for yourself, or your home. With Mars in Aquarius that includes cars, computers, smart phones and anything from the internet of things. Repairing items should work out well though.

Mars turns back today at 9 degrees of Aquarius. This cycle comes to a final, definite end in October, when Mars – travelling forwards again – reaches 9 Aquarius on 8th October.

If you have any planets in your own natal chart at 0 to 9 degrees of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio or Aquarius, you’ll be likely to notice Mars backtracking more than most.

Out in the world

Locations with planets between 0 and 9 degrees of Aquarius in their national horoscopes are worth watching. Mars crosses them a total of three times – beginning in May – making a really strong point about actions, disputes, and initiatives.

Here are a few examples:

Iran – Mercury, 6 degrees Aquarius and Mars 9 degrees Aquarius

Australia – Sun, 6 degrees Aquarius

Belgium – Uranus, 6 Aquarius

Spain –  Mars will be activating both Spain’s charts. Spain can expect to experience more turbulence, fights, and perhaps some striking sporting headlines as well.

Why? In 1479, the chart for Spain has Sun, 8 Aquarius, Mercury 1 Aquarius, Moon’s South Node (fate) 0 Aquarius.

In Spain’s 1975 horoscope, the ascendant is 3 Aquarius.

UK House of Commons –  In this chart Mercury is at 6 degrees, and the Sun at 8 degrees Aquarius. Does this mean another data, tech, or social media row this summer?

Certainly, there are some very lively political debates ahead as Mars energises communicative media Mercury and the Sun, symbolising leaders and prominent individuals.

Ukraine – in the chart for 1918 Ukraine has the Sun at 1 Aquarius. In 1991, when it declared independence, it has Saturn – planet of law and government – at 1 Aquarius.

Russia -The early degrees of Aquarius are highlighted in many charts for former Soviet Union countries, and some of the horoscopes for modern Russia too.

International focus will be beaming in on the World Cup in Russia this summer – it concludes mid-July while Mars is still rewinding. Arguments about sporting technology could be the least of it I fear.

The World Cup final (along with the Wimbledon Men’s Finals) will take place two days after a brooding solar eclipse on Friday 13th July. This is a significant eclipse for the UK, amongst other locations. The atmosphere, and public mood, will be highly charged.

A Time for Caution

The most volatile times for everyone during this phase will likely be those when Mars in Aquarius squares off to Uranus in Taurus. These are days when caution, calm, and sober, risk-averse choices will pay off.

Extra-sensitive dates to watch out for are:

23rd July – 12th August – this is also roller-coaster eclipse season, with eclipses on 13th July, 27th July and 11th August. The lunar eclipse on 27th July is exactly aligned with Mars at 4 degrees of Aquarius! Anger is close to the surface, computer hacking stories and other internet shenanigans hit the headlines again.

These look like especially turbulent, high-energy weeks when it’ll be a real challenge to make decisions that endure. Mercury will also be retrograde at this time (26th July-18th August) for added confusion. If you absolutelys have to sign a contract during this phase, please do be forensic about reading every last teeny tiny detail.

11th September – 22nd September – we can make moves towards resolving some of summer’s shenanigans now, although actions could still be disruptive, rebellious, or unexpected. What was hidden or obscure in July and August is questioned or revealed as Mars returns to vitalise that Aquarian eclipse this September.

Enjoy June. It may not be an entirely peaceful month, yet there are – without a doubt – enough sunlit moments to make many of us smile.
