The Cat

The Cat represents the need for stealth and the freedom to act without restrictions. Acting stealthily in no way implies the need for underhanded behavior. Instead the suggestion here is to move quietly towards your goals and reach out for them when they are within range. It also denotes a need to free yourself from restrictions imposed by others.

Your Crowley Thoth Tarot Card for Today

The Empress

 

The Empress is “The Earth Mother” of the Tarot. She embodies all that is nurturing, clean and wholesome. Her powers resonate from her drive to create and care for life on a grand scale. She is in tune with Nature’s rhythm and realizes that life’s most pleasurable moments often stem from the simplest things. She is not afraid to enjoy herself–to let loose—to the point of being lavish. Abundance and luxury are important to her. The Empress is completely comfortable with her femininity and her sexuality. She is sensual, earthy, generous, and likes the good life. Still, her driving force is a need to create and nurture, and fulfilling this need overrides everything else.

General Meaning

Although it has taken on a strictly romantic revision of meaning in some modern decks, traditionally The Lovers Tarot card 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.

In the Advice Position

Creative compromise helps you accept your commitments fully.

The card in the Advice position suggests a course of action which will harmonize what you want with what is currently possible.

The Lovers card advises that you study your options and make the wisest choice. Carefully consider your long-term interests. There is no judgment on what you choose to keep from the array of possibilities before you. Just watch out for choices that will produce dissatisfaction and discontent.

Be willing to make some compromises, then stick with the commitments you finally make. Trust your intuition along with your rational intellect, and once you make your choice, carry it out with conviction.

Your Tarot Card for Friday, February 17th is The Sun

Tarot Card of the Day

The Sun


February 17th, 2017

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Sun card is about the self — who you are and how you cultivate your personality and character. The Sun’s radiance is where one’s original nature can be encountered in health and safety. The limitations of time and space are stripped away; the soul is refreshed and temporarily protected from the chaos outside the garden walls. Under the light of the Sun, life reclaims its primordial goodness, truth, and beauty. If one person is shown on this card, it is usually signifying a human incarnation of the divine. When two humans are shown, the image is portraying a resolution of the tension between opposites at all levels. It’s as if this card is saying “You can do no wrong — it’s all to the good!”

Get A Jump On Tomorrow….

Your Daily Horoscopes for Saturday, February 17th

 

Aries

Aries Horoscope

The Sun moves into your privacy sector this morning, dear Aries, launching a yearly month-long cycle in which you require more rest and time for reflection before you begin a brand-new cycle in March. It’s the end of the solar year, and you’re in good shape for reviewing recent events and completing some projects that have outgrown their use. You can benefit from some extra time to yourself and relative anonymity. Healing, restful activities are helpful now, particularly if you’ve gotten yourself into a state of overload. The Moon moves into your adventure sector this afternoon, however, and conflicting urges are likely. On the one hand, you’d rather withdraw into yourself, and on the other, you crave new experiences. This is only a state of mind and is temporary. In fact, the friction created now can prompt you to find creative solutions to your dilemma.

Taurus

Taurus Horoscope

The Sun’s move into your social sector today launches a month-long cycle in which social opportunities increase, dear Taurus. Your performance and material goals begin to take on less importance to you going forward. Friends may come out of the woodwork, invitations come in, and chances to connect with your “happiness goals” emerge in the weeks ahead. You enjoy group activities or teamwork now. You are more experimental in your approach to the world as you come out of a cycle in which you followed the rules more carefully than usual. This is a light-hearted, somewhat detached cycle so that when the Moon moves into your deep, intimate solar eighth house early afternoon, you may feel quite conflicted. However, once you get over this hump, you’ll discover ways to satisfy both your need to feel attached and your desire to branch out.

Gemini

Gemini

The Sun moves to the top of your solar chart this morning, dear Gemini, representing a yearly peak of sorts. This can be a time to perform or make announcements for some. In the coming month, the Sun’s transit of your career and reputation sector encourages you to play by the rules more carefully, to fill your responsibilities, and to nurture your ambitions. It’s a goal-setting time of year. You may be leading or managing others now, or you could be outshining others in your career. You receive more attention, and perhaps a little scrutiny. The Moon moves into your partnership sector this afternoon, encouraging you to focus on your relationships or social life, however. Your need for reassurance and your drive to succeed seem to be at cross-purposes now, but with some creativity, you can manage both.

Cancer

Cancer

With the Sun now traveling through your solar ninth house for the coming month, dear Cancer, you have a taste for adventure in some form, whether physical or mental, and you’re inclined to search for ways to broaden your horizons and your understanding of the world. You seek out truths and answers to the bigger life questions. This is a time for entertaining ideas for your future and for getting a larger perspective or overview of your life. There tend to be fewer obstacles in your way, in general. Today, however, with the Quarter Moon in your solar sixth house challenging the Sun, you should avoid taking on too much or promising more than you can deliver. The desire to take care of details conflicts with your urge to expand your experiences. You find problems hard to ignore right now. Look for solutions rather than allow tension rule your day.

Leo

Leo Glyph Symbol Horoscope

The Sun enters your solar eighth house this morning, dear Leo, launching a month-long cycle in which you pay considerable attention to your private world. You desire a little more intensity from life than usual – this is a time for really diving into your projects, relationships, and endeavors. There can be some feelings of discontent with life as it is, and this can prompt you to make deep changes. Matters related to power dynamics, money, and sharing can be bigger themes in your life until March 20th. You’re inclined to strategize and plan rather than jump into action during this cycle. Today, the Moon’s move into your solar fifth house clashes with these themes, creating some friction, as it encourages you to seek out lighter, more playful and spontaneous experiences.

Virgo

Virgo Symbol Horoscope

The Sun moves into your opposite sign this morning, dear Virgo, where it will transit for the coming month. This can be a time of year when a close partnership comes into stronger focus. You’re more relationship-focused than usual now, and you’re inclined to seek out one-on-one activities. You are putting more of yourself and your energy into your relationships with others. If you’ve been focusing too much on your personal plans or if your life has become a little out of balance, this is a time to create more harmony. Today, the Moon moves into your sector of home and family, however, and you can feel a strong tug towards familiar activities and perhaps keeping to yourself. Some tension is possible as a result, but can also stimulate you to seek out creative solutions.

Libra

Libra

The Sun’s move into your solar sixth house today brings a new theme of work and health into your life for the coming month, dear Libra. This is a time for really digging into the details of your life, solving problems, and getting your life in order in key ways. You’re particularly good at adjusting to life’s circumstances and making small changes that help you get on track. This is a great time for perfecting skills and projects, although there can be times when you find it hard to feel satisfied, which can lead to tension. Watch for a tendency to worry, fret, and otherwise overthink. Use this period well for stepping up your routines and taking care of unfinished business. Today, the Moon moves into your solar third house and clashes with the Sun, however. While you can be equally interested in personal pursuits and duties, it’s important not to overdo. Life can be a little too chaotic.

Scorpio

Scorpio Horoscope

The Moon continues its transit of your sign until early afternoon, dear Scorpio, and emotions are heightened. The Sun moves into harmony with your sign, and this month-long transit brings a certain smoothness to your activities that you should enjoy. Until March 20th, you’re likely to take a stronger interest in your creative and romantic pursuits, and you’re investing more of your pride and energy than usual into these areas of life. You are seeking out channels for expressing yourself and your affections. Heartfelt pursuits are in high focus now. While this cycle encourages you to take some small personal risks, the Moon’s move into your comfortable solar second house quickly clashes with the Sun, posing a dilemma: to play it safe or take a chance, that is the question now!

Sagittarius

Sagittarius Horoscope

The Sun moves to the bottom of your solar chart today, dear Sagittarius, and will spend one month here, encouraging you to get in better touch with your inner needs. This is a time for touching base with loved ones, paying particular attention to family, and working on making your home a place that supports and comforts you. This is a great time for considering long-term plans for security. You are looking to take care of your fundamental needs and seeking emotional sustenance now before branching out. It’s a favorable time for investing creative energy into your personal life and domestic environment. However, with the Moon’s move into your sign this afternoon, you’re seeking validation outside of yourself, and its clash with the Sun today can present a dilemma. You’ll figure out ways to satisfy your needs for both independence and safety in due time.

Capricorn

Capricorn HoroscopeThe Sun moves into your communications sector this morning, dear Capricorn. During its month-long stay in this house of your solar chart, you crave more connection with the world around you. Your curiosity is bigger than usual, and your need for mental stimulation motivates a lot that you do. You might find that you’re often on the go, even if this is figuratively speaking, and that while you’re not always focused and concentrating, you’re branching out and learning a lot in the process. You may be motivated to express yourself more clearly in your communications. You can be excited to share your ideas and opinions. The Moon moves into your privacy sector this afternoon, however, and quickly clashes with the Sun, creating an inner conflict. You can be divided in your desires and needs, with your head telling you one thing and your heart another. In truth, you need both quiet time and interactions with others, so aim to get both without overdoing either.

Aquarius

Aquarius

The Sun completes its transit of your sign today, dear Aquarius, not to return until next year. This move tends to shift your focus away from personal plans and towards building the resources you have or building upon new ideas and projects. The month-long transit beginning today encourages patience and thinking in the long term. Ideally, you’ve gained some confidence in the last few weeks, and you’re now ready to focus on developing what you have and earning what you deserve. This is an excellent time for exploring and understanding what you value, as well as for getting a strong sense of what you have to work with. Developing talents and using your resources creatively are themes now. While you’re focused on comfort and security during this cycle, the Moon moves into your solar eleventh house this afternoon and encourages you to experiment with new concepts. You can feel a little tense and divided until you discover ways to satisfy both needs.

Pisces

PiscesThe Sun moves into your sign this morning, dear Pisces, and will transit Pisces until March 20th. This is a time for gaining a clearer sense of yourself. Your personal presence is stronger than usual – others notice you and tend to follow your lead. It’s a great time for feeling in control of your life or for making changes and getting results. You are more self-focused than usual, and this is a good thing to a certain point, beyond which you can run into problems, of course. Otherwise, take this time to work on asserting yourself successfully and for improving your image or attitude to new beginnings. The Moon moves into your career and reputation sector this afternoon, quickly clashing with the Sun in your sign. This can point to some tension as you crave independence but also wish to fill your responsibilities to others. Once sorted, you’re raring to go.

Born on the Aquarius-Pisces Cusp

Born on the Aquarius-Pisces Cusp

The Cusp of Sensitivity: A dreamy, compassionate place

Wondering what happens when your birth chart combines the energy of quirky Aquarius with dreamy Pisces? If you were born on the cusp of these two horoscopes signs, between about February 15-21, you were born on The Cusp of Sensitivity — a compassionate and imaginative place.

Spiritual, artistic, peace-loving and friendly, Aquarius-Pisces cuspers are highly original people. This is the cusp most likely to be labeled “offbeat” or “eccentric,” and its citizens are stimulated by visionary ideas and new experiences. They are highly intellectual, however not so good with practical details and follow-through.

These cuspers may be social or shy, or they may be a peculiar mix of both. This is because pending time with others is a great stress relief, but at the same time they are so sensitive they often choose to hide out alone and escape into their imaginations instead.

Aquarius-Pisces is also arguably the most intuitive cusp placement, lending a naturally psychic and compassionate view of the world. Delving into spiritual matters and philosophical ideals is much more important to these folks than simply managing the details of day-to-day life. For this reason they may lose things, forget appointments, show up late or stand you up. But don’t be mad — it’s only because they were too preoccupied thinking about how make the world a better place on a much deeper level.

You need to be careful that your worldly ambitions don’t take over your life.

Mental pursuits, new learning, and all forms of intellectual activity are especially favored in the year ahead. There can be animated discussions, debates, lectures, and travel in high focus. You are quick to take the initiative and to put your thoughts into action. You may enjoy increased activity with younger people or friends. Once you get going on an area of study or project, you bring great energy to your endeavor.

You have Uranus transiting in harmony to your Sun this year, and exciting changes and new interests characterize the period ahead. It’s easier than ever to express your unique individuality, and if this involves changing careers or jobs, a new love affair, or an entirely new hobby, it’s something that takes you forward into unexplored territory. You are more willing to adapt to new circumstances, ideas, and unfamiliar situations this year. It’s a good time to join organizations and groups and to attend meetings or social events. You are able to find creative solutions to problems now. Flexibility is the key to success under this influence.

Another strong influence that enters the picture this year is also beneficial in a different way. You receive practical support from a harmonious Saturn transit to your Sun. You are practical in your choices (for the most part), keeping your feet on the ground and paying attention to, and honoring, tradition as well as tried-and-true methods. You have the power of practicality, realism, and caution on your side during this period. Work you have done in the past begins to pay off – not necessarily in dramatic ways, but in small, measurable ways. You may be recognized or rewarded in some way for the efforts you put forth. Because you project a more responsible and credible “you”, people in authority are more inclined to appreciate you and recognize your work.

This is a year in which you put your life in order in some significant manner. Improved concentration, a more realistic outlook, and a practical awareness of the limits of time all help you to make steady progress, particularly in your career. Your concern for your future this year is stronger than usual, and you may find that projects you start, or investments you make, this year will benefit you for years to come.

This is a time when you’re more likely to be doing what you enjoy, and enjoying what you’re doing, particularly related to career, work, and life path matters, but extending to other areas of life as well. This can be a time of breakthroughs and new structures in your life. There is an opportunity to combine stability and improvement or excitement with good results. The same can be said of innovation and tradition.

There can be romantic excitement this year. There is more spontaneity in your social life. In business, you’re tuned into future trends and your innovative side emerges strongly.

This is a powerful year for putting your ideas into motion and for turning dreams into reality. You enjoy making long-term plans and learning about a variety of subjects. Studies, publishing, and travel are favored. Always receptive to new ideas, you are absorbing a lot of information. Increased popularity, in general, is likely and personal magnetism is high. You are more decisive than usual this year, and you are able to make alternative methods work well for you.
