January 10 – 16, 2019: XI Justice

A judge sits on her throne, cloaked in red and green. The blue square on her crown represents the stability of her thoughts. The double edged swords is held firm, and upright. This shows that she has come to a decision about the matter, and realizes that there will be consequences. She is ready to face them.

The scales in her left hand remind us that intuition has a place in a logical decision making process. The Justice card is ruled by the zodiac sign Libra. Libras search for the truth and seek harmony.

Ask Justice to guide you this week, as Jupiter moves to square Neptune on Sunday. This brings a test of your faith. Perhaps you’ve been too idealistic, and it ends in some embarrassing or disappointing situation for you. This is not a time to be overly optimistic about anything, and as a result, you might feel paranoid and suspicious of others. This is totally normal. If you’re think you’re crazy, talk to a friend that you trust very much.

Sometimes you need to know when to cut your losses, even if it means compromising your pride a little bit. Trust me, I write this because I’m terrible at it! You teach best what you need to learn the most. The Justice card can help you connect with your inner guidance system, ask for her help.

If you are honest with yourself, and you do what it is right, everything will be okay. If you have been dishonest and done something that goes against your highest self, you will be judged fairly. If you are seeking justice or a decision right now, this card is a sign that it will come soon. You will be called to account for your actions in some way this week. Own your decisions!

Here are some articles I consulted on the topic:

September 13 – 19, 2018: The Devil

In this card, The Devil is depicted as a Satyr, a class of lustful, drunken woodland gods. In Roman culture, it is depicted as half man, half goat. You may have seen a similar creature in Disney‘s 1997 animated film, Hercules. 

The human side of the devil represents sinful behavior. The goat side is symbolic of the scapegoats in our lives that we blame for our problems. The chains on the man and the woman are loose enough; they can lift them off to escape. Yet they stay voluntarily. The Devil is as much about recovery as it is about addictions. 

This card is ruled by Capricorn, which is hosting the planet Saturn for three years (2017 – 2020). Saturn in Capricorn may have you yearning for more structure and stability in your life. You’ll be more focused on what responsibilities you voluntarily take on, especially in relationships.

On the 14th, Mercury in Virgo moves opposite of Neptune in Pisces. This energy will make you feel very practical in your thoughts and precise in your actions. Neptune in Pisces only happens once every 165 years, and the planet stays in the sign for 25 years. This reveals new information and incites a new surge of spirituality into the world.

August 16-22, 2018: The Sun

This card is a reminder to let your inner child shine through. A bouncing baby rides on a white horse, a symbol of innocence and purity. The scene is radiating action, life and vitality. This represents the happiness you feel when you are truly in tune with your highest self.

Think of the sun card as your inner flame when Jupiter trines Neptune and Mercury spins back into direct motion on August 19th. Jupiter is a ruler of light, sky and weather; Neptune is the ruler of the sea. You’ll have a hard time being productive at first, feeling so idealistic, that it’s difficult to start projects if things aren’t perfect. There is no need to rush.

During this week, watch out for opportunities that excite you; follow your arrow. What is for your highest good? Explore this question. The feeling of slowness and confusion will clear from your mind within a few days. When you break through the clouds, start to apply what you have learned. Be patient with yourself and those around you. Stay connected to your inner sun.
