This weeks Tarot Card is Strength – a major arcana card.
These cards are not talking about everyday stuff it’s bigger soul stuff that you are working on or through this week.
Generally it does mean strength, having the strength to face things, to respond to life, looking fear in the face and going yes, I got this.
Faith, have it, go get yourself some if you lack it, know that you do have this, whatever it is that is coming out or at you this week. Be honest with yourself, take off the mask of fear and move with courage forward in your life. You may be challenged by whatever it is your truly desire. Be vulnerable, show yourself for all of your strengths and weakness. But most of all have faith, trust and courage in yourself.
Aleister Crowley Strength card is called Lust, be passionate, engaged, full of passion and lust for life and what it has to offer you. Let the fires burn within you, to get you excited about you and life.
Really connect with that part of you that is raw, primal, true, embrace it. Let this energy work for you.
Questions to ask yourself
*Which areas of your life would you like to live out freely?
*What has stopped you from doing so, up until now?
*Are you ready to completely open yourself up?

3 of wand! is the energy to work with this week.
This card came up for the week of Oct 2nd, so I am going with, you have moved on from this point of waiting, but now you are circling back to see what the next stage is, as you have moved along and have gotten some rewards or something back, but perhaps you have to re-address some of your wants, desires. It feels like a new starting point but not on something new something already in place. This feels like a go ahead card, a signal to keep moving forward. Which I think you will get. But if you feel like you are not getting the go ahead sign, you may have to let go and re-think it all through.
Fire element – creative energy, inspiration, strength and willpower, intuition, spirituality, ambition and expansion, determination and original thought plus the results off them.
Sun in Aries – you take charge of a situation, by taking direction action. Goals into realistic action.
This card invites you to move towards your long-term goals.
The 3 of wand is the card best known for “waiting for your ship to come in” you have invested time, energy, thoughts, ideas in fact many things into something and now you wait, to see what truly does come back from all of that work and intention.
Pay attention what is really coming back to you this week, what is around you. A big part of this is, to know your inner wisdom is strong enough to keep away any doubts or fears, to know that you can succeed with your future plans and goal, having already made a commitment to them.
The seed of intention has already been planted and you start to see what those seeds bring back to you. You are getting closer to that future which you have been thinking, wanting and planning for. You set forth again on your journey. It’s time to take it out further, expansion, bigger horizons or commitments. You may also have a better idea about what to do.
- movement to go ahead

MARS squares PLUTO, MERCURY aspects the nodes, past and future.
Mars and Pluto are up against each other in a tense square, squares bring in action needs to be taken, a feeling of crisis may come about.
You may be feeling like you need to take charge or take control of situations, people in your life. You feel like you have no power or say in what is going on. Perhaps others are trying it on you. So, you do have to work out where the power lies, particularly in where you feel you are powerless, as you are not, it’s how you go about working out the situation that you are dealing with. And in many cases you won’t be able to do anything especially if the other won’t budge. They ideally want to transform some little gem inside of you and the push is not an easy one to take on. You can feel rattled and stirred up.
Slow down and work out that is really going on within. What is the push really trying to tell you?
Do watch out for anger/aggression, during this one as these two do not mess around, whether it’s within you or in the external world. Try and calm things down.
Mercury in Sagittarius is wanting work with the truth, to take you forward and you have to go with the heart, the old mind-set has to go.
November 13th 2017, at 7° Scorpio.
A sweet connection, brings in some benefits. You my even manifest(a gift) something in the physical form during this aspect. Which let’s face it after the last few months of very testy energy, anything will help to lift the load.
Venus – planet of wants, likes/dislikes, love, beauty, attraction, relationship, money.
Jupiter – expansion, growth, hope, truth, abundance.
Something good, abundance, hope and joy may come about. It is a good time to ask for what you want, if they can they will deliver it to you.
Like all Jupiter influence it may be just more, more and just a little more please! Venus adds her want to it, in Scorpio…..you just can’t get enough! Moon is in Virgo, keep it grounded, practical and try to be discerning.
Scorpio – there will be some form of intensity involved, and always remember Scorpio brings unconscious to conscious. Transformation. Transparency, going beyond and going deeper into strong bonding or sharing with others.
Let your true self be seen.
Find a deeper meaning in your life.
Make connections that have meaning. One’s that take you to deeper levels of yourself.
Expansion, growing, the next stage of development and growth, a higher path of love, intimacy.
Get to the truth/heart of things that matter.
See it and believe it.
Something will be revealed, unveiled during this time from the planets shining so brightly in the sky.
Allow this to take you beyond your old self, let it empower you.
Go beyond, go higher, let yourself receive and soar higher than before.
This is a great big cosmic push forward.
The third and last meet up between these two planets, first up in Dec 24-25 2016, then again in May 19-20 2017. Trines are considered one of the most beneficial because you don’t have to do too much work with them, but it’s best to put some effort into it as you can get positive results.
Saturn and Uranus connect, here you have been asked to gently let go of the old for the new, but in the end it’s like turning something old, new(the new you). It’s moving on, letting go of any old structure/security, beliefs/attitudes, rules, shoulds, forms of security that you thought were holding you up and together, the false structure within. You get the nudge for change, liberation, freedom to come out of the old structure, to loosen up, to expand and go beyond the fear zone.
Uranus looks for the new future and between the two they have removed the layer’s of walls that held you in, removed the barriers that held you back from the future you want. Hopefully there was not too many shocks, surprises along the way as Uranus does like to bring that, likes to loosen you up for change, to take a look behind the surprise to get you see whats within the cracks.
As the future is calling, and its the higher path of heart, the higher truths, a higher love.
5 of cups. Move on!
Water, emotions, feelings, sensitive, intuition, flow.
Oh, the 5 of cups is the card or energy of the week.
Gotta say not one of my faves, that for sure. Last weeks energies have been rough and wild, this card may reflect on all of the emotions running around.
This one deals with disappointments, looking back and now you are in a place of despair, regret and sadness.
Can feel a sense of loss, separation.
This is the classic “crying over spilt milk” card .
But you know, 5 are opportunity for change, grow from the experience of the 5 of cups if it shows up for you this week.
Work through the emotions of disappointment, if they should surface. You are at a crossroads for change, changing past patterns and behaviours perhaps?
This is a pause card to, looking back and yet moving on from. There is more to come with the 5 of cups, but the question is do you want to reach for the other cups still standing, wanting to be filled with more experiences yet to come.
Or will you just stay looking back on past.
It does feel like a brief moment in time where you felt all of the emotions of past actions with regret. Best not to sit with it all to long, as you will and may miss opportunities.
Look towards the future instead.

This weeks card is the 4 of cups.
Water element, emotions, feelings, sensitive, intuitive, flow, openness.
Moon in Cancer
Is something or someone calling you to come out, to move away from your everyday life!
This week working with the energy of 4 of cups, this cards brings up many meaning for you to look at and work with. These are all 4 of cups issues which may play a part of this week. You are focusing on the feeling, emotions part within yourself.
4’s deal with stability and security, positive and negative, but they bring in the questions of being more of stagnate/rut/routine nature.
Question to ask yourself, what does the 4 of cups mean to you.
- Feeling bored or dissatisfied with your everyday environment?
- Emotionally stuck or stagnant?
- What do you really want, how do you want to feel?
- Is there something on offer and you do not want to get out of your routine or rut to make the changes?
You can often feel like something is lacking in your life, you feel emotionally unfulfilled. This is the card of letting you know that you may actually want more to come into your life, to feel more.
This week can be a week for you to make the changes, to get out of the rut/routine and go get something to make your life feel more alive.
Two sides to this, can be stuck or stagnate and you may just want to stay there, but you may still feel dissatisfied, but there you stay, is life offering you others things to help you move on from the stagnation that is around you.
You may have to get out… to get. Take some time during this week to change up your routine to start the process of change, to bring the energy in.

SUN enters Scorpio, Sun shines the light on Scorpio themes, looking deeper within, instincts, motivation, hidden resources, secrets, taboo topics, occult, taxes and death.
SUN in Scorpio, Sun shines the light on death/dying, our passion and fears. Light shines on to areas that are hidden within, Scorpio is death, letting go of old, to live renewed and regenerated once more. And at times you have to face the part that is decaying, falling away.
And you can’t forget, passion, sex and power. Some of these things will play a part during Sun transit in Scorpio.
Go deeper into issues when they come up, let the intensity of the situation, move you beyond to transform and change you.
Sun joins and meets up with Jupiter on the 26th, new information from the Mercury/Jupiter meet up from last week 18th, may come in and changes situation.
Sun, Mercury and Jupiter all in Scorpio highlighting the opportunity of Jupiter’s journey.
Change, opportunity, expansion and growth, but it will be intense, deep and emotional thanks to the Scorpio feel.
MARS opposite Chiron, Mercury opposite Uranus.
It may be a prickly day with these two aspects. First off Mars opposite Chiron brings in some kind of hurts as the wound is being poked at. You may feel like your interest or desire cannot be acted on, you just cannot see a way to do this, so some frustration, pissed of emotions may emerge.
Add this to the mix, Mercury/Uranus, is the plan changes, but you may not want it to. So you have to change your mind, look at it differently, go with the flow.
Make adjustments, don’t go on the attack. This will not work out.
Work through the emotions that come up for you, and they will be the ones that make you uncomfortable, annoyed, as Chiron is involved, brings it to the surface.
Take a slower, gentler way through the day.
MARS squares SATURN, this is a testy pair, you my feel like the thing that you want is taking a long time to take off or come about. Mars wants to take action towards desired goals or plan. Saturn blocks or limits you, so hold back, be patient. Keep in mind this does give you time to go over your goals and plans.
Venus is quincunx Chiron, a sore point may also be troubling you here, Venus is what you want, and Mars the action you take.
So maybe delays, frustration and angst comes along with this one.
Also some doubt and doubling guessing yourself, as Chiron brings in past wounds. You might find that this is causing some of the delays or limits around Mars really taking action. Check in with self to see if you are putting up barriers or walls, is this the delay/procrastination?
