This weeks Tarot Card The Devil!
The Devil is a major arcana card, a soul card, has much more meaning in our lives than the minor arcana, which deal with our day-to-day issues.
The Devil card does get a bad wrap, it deals with more of the material, physical realms, of our strong, primal desires. It may and can be about control, power, sex, manipulation, it talks about the more darker, primal, raw side of our nature. The shadow self, and we all have one of those.
However to truly know oneself you do have to dance with the Devil every now and then, because without the dark you do not know the light. Or lighter side of life. But how deep and dark you want to go…..well that’s entirely up to you.
Maybe this week you may feel the impact of the Devil in your life, a lustful feeling, a strong attraction, enjoyment in the physical world, you might indulge or overindulge (Jupiter in Scorpio), you may just go for it and take a risk which may or may not pay off.
You can also use this primal, raw energy and channel it into creative areas of your life, it’s a new source of energy, it can be strong and powerful for you.
It is related to Capricorn, keep that in mind, karma, consequence of your actions when playing with the Devil, be somewhat cautious in your approach if you can, but sometimes the temptation of the Devil is just too much, particularly if your really like the way it is wrapped.
This is all about the naughty side of life, throwing caution to the wind.

3 of wand! is the energy to work with this week.
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.
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 may be reward.
Completion stage is happening.
New beginnings come with the completion stage.
Can take action or steps towards the next phrase of the journey.
Expansion in your world – more to come to you.

Venus(what you want) and Mars(action, what you do to get it), both trine Pluto, deep soul urges, desires and goals may kick in, with some positive action, you can very well manifest with this one. Be sure to settle and ground your energy down. Face the future, know you have got the power.
This is building now. To this.
Mars and Venus completely connect up on the 6th, day of the full moon in Aries also. Your desires and actions may come together, this could be the point of the physical manifestation of what you want!
Pluto is involved always brings in the power of transformation, regeneration and healing. Being in a harmonious aspect it’s more creative, intense and passionate then on the disruptive side. Also it brings in a feeling of you have to go there! you might have been a little fearful before maybe it’s a taboo person or thing, as Pluto rules all of those things.
Get down and get dirty 😉 and have a really good time.
SUN in Libra, into the cardinal air. It’s the half way mark in the zodiac wheel and year, you may be feeling the need and desire to connect more, interact, you are stepping into the external world, coming out of the personal zone and time.
Libra = seeking to find, peace and harmony, getting back to center.
Keep in mind Venus, Mars and Mercury are still in Virgo, perhaps, a bit more work still has to be done. Some things may still need to be wrapped up, cleared away.
New Moon in Virgo, 20th @3:30 pm (aest)
- Sun/Moon opposite Chiron, square to Saturn. Mercury ruler of Virgo, conjunct Mars, opposite Neptune.
This is a very Virgo time, Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars and Venus(enters a few hours before the new moon) all in the mutable, earth sign of Virgo.
It’s time to find the thread again, that was lost.
Here you are dealing with life, looking at life through the eyes of a Virgo lens. And you may be struggling with what you see. It might even be a little bit messy, confusing. The Neptune Full Moon, slipped things into the ethers, a lot dissolved, detached, left you with a lost feeling, something left from within you making you feel not so sure now. Neptune might want to keep the chaos alive, keep it stuffed in the cupboards, under the bed, but no, that is not the Virgo way. To sort is the way, come back to earth, to pick up the pieces. Virgo works her magic to help you get clarity, to get clear, by taking the practical, approach. It’s time to get in amongst the mess whether it be in your head, house, relationships, health, daily habits, work, kitchen cupboards. Time to work, look, get organized, make a list, get a plan, and do.
Virgo is here to help you out, she is asking you to clean it all up, she will be logical, practical and very discerning. What to keep and what to throw. What is working or useful to me and most of all to others, as Virgo is about service too. You can only work with what you know, what is true and real and what you have, keep that in mind. Somethings will have to go but not everything.
You would like to make life, work better. You feel the need to clean, remove, sort out the muddle that’s been around you or in your head.
Virgo time is a good time for healing, head, body and soul, take some time out for this.
New Moon hits up with Saturn/Chiron, which brings in another set of challenges for you. Chiron is the sensitive spot, vulnerable, you feel like parts or bits are missing, still floating out there in space, (I think Neptune has taken it out to sea), you may feel like you are not enough, not whole. Saturn sets you to working it out, because you have to, you just have to do the work!, you cannot walk away, from bits yes, but not the lot. That would be unfinished business. Saturn…. not a fan of that!
Mercury ruler of Virgo, opposite Neptune, this brings in the fog, uncertain, element, you’re just not sure of what is really going on here, you stand scratching your head, so communication may be unclear, misunderstanding can happen. Let the universe speak to you, listen. At some point be quiet and listen. Let her pulse through you. Virgo and Pisces is the axis of dream, magic and reality bringing it into physical form. Mars is still conjunct Mercury, taking action may not be clear or easy, bit to fogging perhaps, thanks to Neptune opposite.
If you are feeling like me at the moment and you just do not know what to do, about certain things, just wait, hold off, clean up the bits that you know need to be looked at, sort, sift, release. You will start to feel the new energy of the new moon filter through a few days after, that’s the go point, you are using this Virgo time to get clear, really clear on what you want and what you are doing, it’s been a hazy, daze time between moons, but hopefully you have been listening to the discerning voice within.
Well, the energy has settled somewhat, not as twitchy as the last few days. But, I would say you’re feeling tired/drained from it.
Venus the planet of love and money is in a harmonious aspect to Jupiter, expansion, brings in a happy vibe. You might be feeling more social, more willing to open up and share, feeling more optimistic, hopeful. Wanting to lighten up a little here. Maybe just watch the money side of things, as in spending too much. Or just laying it all out there.
Venus conjunct the North Node of fate, a future might be in the making here, so pay attention to who/what is around now.
Venus/Jupiter in a quincunx(adjustments) to Chiron(wound, a sore spot, insecure) which will make it interesting, this is building now. Hold on a bit, don’t get to carried away, as Jupiter’s influence often does make you feel. There is more to these aspects that is not really ready to unfold as of yet.
Well it’s an intense, twitchy kind a day, you can be feeling some stress and tension, maybe a bit of an overload, and you may feel tad irritated by it all.
MOON squares SUN, here you are weeding out what is no longer working for you, be discerning, make choices, leave what is working, polish up or on skills that you can take with you and work with. If it is no good throw it out, or recycle what you have. Not the time to start something new.
You may also be feeling the old is dying away and what is left?, what is the new something that is coming? Full moon in Pisces may have shifted something within you, a space is waiting to be filled, use the Virgo time to work, sift through what you got. Look and think about what do you want, do you need it or not. Plus do you really want to be doing it all?
MOON opposite SATURN, that just adds to the mood, emotions may feel restricted/held back in some way or you just feel like you really can’t move on or get ahead, again some frustration.
Moon is in Gemini, so this is a buzzy kind of energy anyway, your mind is quick, you feel restless, but you feel pinned down with this other energy going on.
Be patient, focus on the job at hand. Use the buzz energy to clean things out, or work it off and out.
SUN opposite NEPTUNE, MARS, MERCURY, hit the eclipse spot. MOON in Aquarius.
Sun and Neptune meet up (this will be around for the next few days, exact around the full moon in Pisces, on the 6th), things can start to get foggy, you feel a little mellow, this is a great aspect to go with the flow, use your imagination, dream, write, you can be more sensitive and intuitive.
Be as clear as you can with your words and actions, this can lead to misunderstanding, delusions, deception. As you can often feel as if you do not know what is real and true with this one. I always find Neptune a tricky one.
Mars and Mercury hit the eclipses spot, some energy is being dumped on that one again, if you felt it last go round, your likely be feeling it again with some more input/change to that spot.
Moon in Aquarius, you might want to detach from your emotions, unplug, become more of a thinker, find solutions to your problems this way.
Like always check out your birth chart to see how this is working in your life.
This weeks card is the Knight of swords.
Air element – intellect, words, communication, mind, knowledge, action, power, and change.
Cutting ties and moving on, separating from entanglements and limitations.
-This week it’s about getting clarity and getting clear, cutting away to forge ahead, it may need quick, decisive action to help with this. Keep your mind focused.
-You may find that you land somewhere and you know where you are and what you have to do. Particularly if you have been feeling up in the air about things.
-You may find that this week you start to feel as if you can get what you want, as you have been visioning, using your will and intention. Things may start to go forward for you.
Really use your mind, thoughts, to stay clear, do not go into confusion, or doubt when you have decided on something, or a course of action to take.
He is the knight of action, swift action.

VENUS in LEO, step more into the spotlight with Venus here. She will be looking at Love, money, relationships and self-worth. When in Leo, you are bold and daring, you want fun, play and more excitement in your life, especially your love life. You will also want the attention, want to be adored, looked at and appreciated.
Venus can be open, generous, warm-hearted during her stay here. That is of course if she is getting the attention, if not, well then you may hear her roar.
Find the time to re energize your life, put that extra sparkle in all that you do. Go out and look your best, be charming, charismatic. Be confidant, Venus here will also let you know in what areas of your life that you do need a bit of a confidence boost. She will also show you what lacking in your life.
SATURN DIRECT ->->-> since April Saturn has been Rx, the planet of time, karma, commitment, work and goals. What was holding you back? What did you need to go over again.
Direct, you can move forward and hopefully you leave behind some of the old karmic debts that may have been dragging you down.
MARS conjunct NORTH NODE, 27th, great for taking action and going after what you want, plus with Venus also in Leo, another planet gives you a boost along, give you the passion, sass, to get yourself seen, to move you along the path of your soul’s purpose and passion. You have to back yourself here, know you have the goodies. Saturn D motion will give it somewhat of a forward momentum, you have paid off some debts, so go forward. It’s all the way to the future from here.
North Node, future self, path and road, step into it.
JUPITER sextile SATURN, 27th, these two are working together, with an optimistic practical approach, you can achieve, succeed. Jupiter expands and Saturn restricts, but with this meetup the two are working together to bring about opportunities, expansion, growth. But with a realistic touch and approach.
MOON in SCORPIO, you go deeper, does bring in the deep intense emotional part, but use this to keep you going after your desires and passion. There is nothing like an intense emotional urge or want to keep you going.
