Tarot Card of the Day
Ace of Wands
We’re still in manifestation mode, so any effort to bring new light into your life is particularly potent now. As the Moon moves into Aries, we can play with the Fool Archetype in our endeavors, which is also in perfect alignment with today’s Tarot card, the Ace of Wands. We can begin again, so to speak, as a child full of curiosity and wonder. Go after your goals and aspirations today with a sense of adventure. Just make sure that you’re laying thoughtful plans before you embark on a new endeavor. You will have a creative spark that can sustain you through to the end of your goal if you plan well ahead.
The Moon sextile Venus (2:41am PST) indicates a great time to feel safe when expressing our emotions, especially in our romantic relationships. Now is the time to share how we want to be treated in our romantic and personal relationships. It’s also a good day to have fun with how you experience pleasure and be expressive about what lights your fire. There are no rules or shame in this part of our lives. You’re free to explore with the energy and light-footedness that we feel on vacation or in the early throws of new love. This feeling can transpire and ignite inspiration in your professional aspirations as well.
Moon conjunct Neptune (4:40am PST) means these two planets are sharing small space and are intimately connected today. This is an excellent moment to allow your dreams to become reality. Play with them and visualize what it would be like to actually live the life you want. Visualization is a powerful tool for manifestation. In fact, we must see it in our minds first, and then we let the path unfold towards that hidden reality that we can no longer keep inside. Little details of that reality you desire will start to present itself to you in small messages, and sometimes very significant ones.
Have fun with that dream today. How would you be different in that reality? What’s one thing you can do today to help you make it become a tangible one? Small steps will get you there. Just remember to stay grounded in your aspirations. Sometimes the childlike nature of the Fool and the excitable fire of Aries can lead you toward delusion and escapism. Remember your roots and water them with healthy lifestyle practices like good sleep, nutrition, and quiet moments for contemplation, and perhaps a good cup of tea.
Moon sextile Pluto (2:23pm PST)
With the fiery nature of the Moon in Aries, this aspect with Pluto indicates a strong need to be careful with tempers. It is good to express our needs, and in fact, Pluto will help you make these moments of full expression into transformative episodes of change for you. As we are in the month of Capricorn represented by the horned goat and the Devil card in the tarot, it’s important to pay attention to the ego’s drive for power, possibly at the risk of manipulating others or not considering their needs as we trail blaze our own path.
Take a moment to reflect on how your emotions, actions, and decisions affect those around you. It’s okay to have goals that contradict and sometimes force others to embrace a new reality. Life is about evolution, and the moment we stagnate, we shut down and inevitable death of a sort, whether spiritually or physically, is certain to follow. Expect power struggle in your fool’s journey, but remain lighthearted and in touch with your guiding light nurtured by unconditional love for yourself and others.
Tarot Card of the Day: Ace of Wands
With all of this conversation around the beginner’s luck and zest for life on the fool’s journey, we couldn’t have pulled a better card to represent the astrological aspects of the day. The blooming flowers and connection with the earth found in this card encourages you to use your creative spark today in endeavors that better the collective consciousness. How can you share your gifts grown from your excitement for the natural world and the magic contained within it? Perhaps you can light a fire in someone else today that helps them see the light and magic within themselves just as you have found it in yourself.
Have a great day!
