Happy Eclipse Season! How are you faring as we approach part deux of Cosmic Moon Madness? Me: sleepless nights, mandatory transformation… life’s totality inside out metamorphosing.
I’ve asked the Cosmic Tarot how to infuse this sidereal intensity into our lives over the next six months:
What energy is best to connect with over the course of this full moon eclipse cycle?
ANSWER: King of Pentacles
Whoa, did NOT expect this response at all! Forget what you heard, King of Pentacles doesn’t speak to a Libran lunation, it address the reality of where the eclipse falls astronomically: in the constellation of Virgo.
This tarot card is Fire (King) of Earth (Pentacles), Virgo is an earth sign ruled by Mercury, the Messenger of the Gods planet. The Pentacles King is the archetypical businessman, CEO, affluent man of industry.
King of Pentacles in response to our question makes it clear the work of “God” must be organized and implemented in a boss-like fashion. This isn’t wild breakout energy, it’s “do what must be done in honor of the calling of your soul”, manifest in physicality from a firm structure created with an outline of all the steps.
Virgo is a star sign almost infamous for its inimitable organizational skills. Virgo Virgins are lords of the sixth house, a zodiac area associated with health, wealth management, the effective facilitation of projects, work, day-to-day affairs, charity, duty, responsibility in service of others, hygiene, fitness.
Astronomers note our “Blood Moon” Full Moon Eclipse this Saturday is very close to a star within the Virgo constellation: Spica.
Spica is part of Virgin’s “Ear of Wheat” and the ancient lore around it is profuse. In Ancient Egypt the totality of the Virgo constellation was representative of mother goddess Isis, then over the years it took on more of a Virgin Mary tonality.
Long story short, Spica is a combination of Venus and Mercury, promoting high-minded love fused with strengthened proactivity stemming from a firm base of operations.
SO, King of Pentacles here serves up a number of suggestions for what to do with our lives over the next six months:
All legitimate passion projects require a system of structure with clear actions, deadlines and goal fulfillment dates.
Health and fitness must be on point; King of Pentacles is too boss for addictive behaviors, he can conquer anything, so no “cheating” just control.
Should the above be in place already, great! Stick to the plan and you will reap harvest, GUARANTEED.
Note of caution here, Spica will jack you up potentially should all this be ignored, as the star in early astrology took on the B.C. meaning of Virgo: “a sign of unfruitfulness and a portent of injustice to innocence; but later on, of eminence, renown, and riches”. If you work at it with the power and dynamism of King of Pentacles then renown is forthcoming. However should you choose to embrace stagnant stupor victimized by circumstances without clear direction on true goal, then direct ticket to the whack land of unfruitfulness is imminent.
