This weeks tarot card is 5 of swords.
Air element, thought, mind, perspective, thinking, inner or external conflict, tensions and struggles.
Fear of loss or defeat, existential angst.
Fear of the future. Cutting some ties.
Venus in Aquarius – what you value, or what you think is important.
Fives are opportunity for change and growth, a crossroads. Facing the future.
Five of sword is not an easy card, it can be about conflict internal or external, can bring up fears, feeling defeated. But you are at a crossroads for change, if you are in conflict best option is to walk away, if you can? Ask yourself can I come out alright here, is it worth my time, energy.
You may find you are having an internal fight within yourself, you will work through and come out the other side, it is like you have to go through the internal struggle to get you to and through to the other side of it.
Keep in mind that this may also be or have been a long struggle that you have been going through and this week you find that it changes, you break through the struggle. As with the sun and clouds parting you find some relief or answers or may even know the way now, whereas before you were just in the fight. You may even be afraid that things will not change and all will stay the same.
Angst which can leed you to freedom, but it has not been easy, internal and external fights and conflict.
When I see this card the fight is over with, but you may still feel the edge of this on you. You have come through the struggle, particularly with thoughts or what you have been worrying about, usually form an external place.
Have patience with yourself and others this week.
Affirmation – “I face my fears and open myself for love and trust”. From the tarot – mirror of the Soul by Gerd B, Ziegler
Yes…..it’s that time again when the eclipses shadows your life. A turning point of fate!
- Take a step back and detach from the old baggage, past traumas and emotional connections. Allow a space to enter for you to connect or reconnect.
It may be time to really take a look at you and how you see yourself in the world, what is your part, are you really being you. Or have you blended in so much that you are like the rest of the crowd?
Full moon in Aquarius. Take a look at the individual self in context to the self when you are in a group, community, humanity. How do you fit in, define yourself by the group. Aquarius likes the group, humanity and is drawn to this, socializing, friends. But, is not the group, likes to still be an individual, seeks freedom, likes to invent or reinvent the self. Not too much confinement by others, Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, after all, resist and the rebel.
How do you mix in, best approach is to be detached somewhat in groups, observe, have a higher perspective and view, don’t be defined by that group, you decide how much is you and how much you want to blend in or be in.
Sun and Mars are in Leo, shining it’s light brightly, time to take action in your individuality, identity, have your own thought, opinion, purpose and goal. Maybe find a new group or friends to play with that are in lineaments to you. A place or group in which you can shine your essence in a natural and authentic way. And, so can everyone else.
- Basically you have to be yourself now.
Watch out for the Mars element as some may be to assertive, irritable, rude and just pissed off. Be Leo, take some pride and respect in all that you do here. It may call for some higher ground taking.
Uranus rules Aquarius, so there is a breaking away feel to this eclipse, Uranus is Rx, so change is going to happen. Time to run with a new crowd, put some distance between you and others, have a breathing space for new to come in.
Jupiter is moving away from Pluto(power plays, transformation), Pluto is quincunx this full moon, so Pluto can still bring an edge to the power games or mood people play. Jupiter’s in a harmonious expect so will smooth some of the way for you.
Neptune is quincunx too, so some doubt or confusion, may be floating around at this time. It may be a blur.
Fate – Fated – Destiny, is here. The North node in Leo, is the place you are heading for. Fun, play, creative expression of you. It is time to shine your light out there into the world. Live, life by the heart. Find your passions and fire. What is it that keeps you going. What brings the fire to your belly. So….. whatever is happening just know that it is in your favor even it does not seem like it or feel like it at the time.
Time to be you, step up and out, live a life with more passion and heart.
JUPITER square PLUTO,
Since Nov these two have been meeting up or clashing, to bring about a deep change and transformation in your life. August 5th is the final phrase for these two. Expansion and transformation is what is being talked about here. This may have caused you to feel like you were being pulled from the inside out. Now is the time to sum it all up and to take stock of how well you are going. Some success and some failure’s for sure.
You have needed to grow and expand your world, your beliefs, move beyond the old way of moving and being in this life. You have been stretched, and all things have been put under the magnifying glass for you to see, where and what needs to be transformed, acknowledged, healed and of course the final acceptance of what all that is for you.
Keep in mind that other people, played apart in your growth, they pushed and pulled you to move. Each struggling to maintain some sense of their own worth and center. It was a tangle, mess for a while. You do have a need for power, success and are driven to achieve. Trying to find balance and your equilibrium again. It may have taken the long way, to get you to where you want to go, create and be.
Leave the old persona behind, time now for you to get in touch with your power center and direct your focus and energy to push you through. Direct your focus on moving forward to breakaway from the old ties, that bind you back and hold you in.
Pluto is the intense transformation, rebirth, that the soul is being called to change here. That does however ask you to take a very good, long, deep, honest look at you.
VENUS enters CANCER, You want a deeper, softer, sweeter, nurturing connection. The need for comfort and nurturing will be stronger, forming deeper bonds.
You will want to take your emotions a little deeper. Which can of course make things a little more rocking on the emotional front. You will be seeking love, a tad more serious, you want to take it up notch.
Your likes and dislike will be made from a more emotional feeling space.
She can be moody here.
Good time for some self-love and self-care for yourself and others, being a touch more sensitive to love issues. Or perhaps generally more serious.
You will want to connect with home, family and loved ones.
Venus rules love, money and relationship/partnership.
Moon in Scorpio while Venus is getting ready to dive into her emotion, so today keep your yourself steady.

This is a present moment card, find love, and peace within in, find time to just be you and connect with people or family that you love being around, be grateful, joyful for all that you have been through.
10 is an ending and a beginning all in one, a culmination point is at hand, a space for the old to leave/end and a space opening for the new to come in.
Let the stress go and get out of your head for a while. Try and stay in your feelings and heart space, open up to all that may come your way.
Simplify life, find time for fun and love, move slower through your day. Come back to you. Spend this week getting back to peace and harmony within yourself and with others. Getting back to a tranquil place. Enjoy this space, relax, be yourself.
