When it is dark enough, you can see the stars.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Unicorn Guidance Thursday 2 August
Ruling Archangel: Sachiel (Jupiter)
Crystal of the day: Amethyst
Lunar phase: Waning Moon in Aries
In spite of your best efforts and an attitude of ‘let’s just get on with it,’ (Queen of Pentacles) you may not get as much work done today as you would like. The reason is that unconscious matter, thoughts and feelings are stirring just beneath the surface today. Something is coming up for processing and potential healing says The Moon.
You may have to abandon some of the things you planned today entirely (10 of Swords) and spend time dealing with contentious people who test your boundaries (Queen of Wands + 4 of Pentacles). Either way the 10 of Swords signals the end of something you have been struggling with in your mind for some time and which comes to a head today. Miscommunication is also indicated. Please be patient with yourself and others if this happens – ‘Tis to be expected with six retrogrades!!
With the presence of two Queens and The Moon as the central card, what you are seeking a resolution for probably has its roots in issues around your feminine power (equally true for men!). I just learned yesterday in ‘Tarot Beyond the Basics,’ that The Moon relates to Hekate.
The reason all this is happening today is that you are being nudged to embrace the darkness within yourself. Today you will be given opportunities to project and to blame others. The wise thing to do is to examine these projections instead, for a deeper understanding of your own repressed thoughts and feelings.
I smiled when the Unicorns presented me with the ‘Polarity’ card because something clicked for me late last night. The half-formed thoughts came out in my morning prayer:Hekate-Christos, I am your child of darkness and light; Bless me today with gentleness and might. So mote it be! Click To Tweet
Try saying these words to bridge any sense of polarity caused by a rejection of the darkness within.
