November 1 – 7, 2018: Ace of Swords

A clouded had reaches out, offering you a sword representing intelligence. The crown on top of the sword gives you the gift of mental clarity and powerful thoughts. The wreath adorning the crown represents victory and success. This card is your “a-ha!” moment. It also means that you might be entering a situation that is a double edged sword. Or, you might be starting a new adventure that is going to change the way you think.

This week Jupiter trines Chiron. Chiron is a comet, its energy helps you perceive new levels of intellect and Jupiter helps you feel the emotions associated with change. On Tuesday November 6th, temperamental Uranus retrograde enters independent Aries. During retrogrades, we experience slow downs or setbacks in the qualities of the planet. Uranus retrograde means you should probably put your an ego in a time out for awhile because you’ll be seeking some extra attention. Attempts to get special attention will backfire.

The new moon arrives on Wednesday, November 7th in transformational Scorpio. This is a good time to embrace your shadow side. Don’t worry, you will adjust the same way that your eyes adjust to the dark night. Work on shifting the blockages in your life. Be an alchemist. Create new things. Renew your soul before Winter sets in like the landscape of the Ace of Swords.

Use this time to clear out the old ways of thinking that are no longer serving you. Seek truth and justice. Open your mind. Don’t fear the shadows. Be careful not to get swallowed up by your own subconscious. Be smart, but don’t be cold.
