XVI The Tower ‘Destructive Creation’ | Spiritual Sage Tarot Discussion

XVI The Tower ruled by both Aries and Scorpio, is a clear ‘course correction’ card and signals not being on your correct path. I see the Tower as being extremely merciful, showing the magnificence of God’s mercy by forcing us to “pull our heads in” and see Truth.

The severity of XVI Tower’s effects within our lives, seems to directly correspond with each’s own level of self-awareness, and exactly how far from Truth we have strayed…. Fire being potentially devastatingly destructive (Mars), or can purify being wholly cleansing (Pluto), with lessons to be learnt either side of the primal powers of Fire.

XIV Temperance (Sagittarius) ‘The Alchemy of Humanity’s Water & Wine’

XIV Temperance Major Arcana is a transformative alchemical card. Medieval alchemy was fundamentally concerned in transformation of the essence of things, usually from something base to something refined. The most obvious example is the attempt to turn lead into gold, but more broadly, alchemy can be understood as the attempt to purify and refine, not only with physical objects, but also esoterically and with the human soul itself.

Spiritually then, the alchemy of XIV Temperance concerns the transformation of the soul in this manner, specifically about taking parts of the soul and concentrating them into something wholly refined and beautifully unique.

VII Cups ‘Victory in Emotion’ Manifestation via Fantasy of Feelings

VII Cups is a very important card. The unique emotional power of fantasy found within Seven of Cups, when aligned in Truth with Source/God, I’ve deemed as one of the three essential ingredients to be harnessed in the alchemy of manifestation. Experiencing VII Cups feelings, and knowing the joy that will be yours again, once your fantasised hopes and earnest desires become realised materially in the physical realm is vital.

The emotional intensity enjoyed via visualisations, imagination, and fantasy found in the 7C seems to be the much sought after missing ‘key” (being pre-imagined emotional fulfilment) which bridges the enormous divide between intention/desire and actual material manifestation.

VII of Cups encourages us all to invest in our imaginations wisely in this way, and for this important purpose.

IV Swords ‘Truce’ Meditation and The Akashic Records

Would you invite a known thief into your home? Allowing this thief to blatantly steal your hard earned luxuries from right under your own nose? So why then do we allow insidious negative thoughts to make themselves comfortably at home within our own minds?

These thought nasties consume all our energy, leaving us feel powerless and robbing us of all the joy and happiness we should all enjoy.

The power to choose positivity is an authority within each one us. Choose wisely.

VI Wands ‘Victory’

This card is all about winning at any cost and involves the game players, cheaters, pretenders, controllers, frenemies and energy vampires we all have to interact within our lives. 6W is associated with propaganda, self-interest, hidden agendas, using other people and their resources for self benefit, and most often is my red flag card signifying ‘bullshit’ or ‘narcissist’ if 6W is representing a person.

XIX The Sun + I The Magician Shadowed: VII Pentacles ‘Failure’

“Right place, at the right time, with the best attitude” for today.
Will the Sun illuminate some trickery, or reveal some deliberately concealed Truths today? 7P says all will come to light ‘eventually’, the importance of matters that occur today, may not be realised until a later time.
XIX The Sun + I The Magician & Shadow Card: VII Pentacles ‘Failure’ (RWS) Bide your time… Success not instant will feel like failure, patience and thoroughness is required.

So together these two cards talk about goodness manifesting, determined to find truth, will and determination to be good, speaking your truth freely, acting out of goodness etc or the flip side maybe the big kid who’s a fast talker, or acting impulsively and/or childishly.

IV Cups ‘Luxury’ Shadowed: XVIII The Moon

I’ve often heard Four of Cups (4C) referred to as the ‘drinking’ card, associated with excessive partying, over indulgence, boredom and inebriation, but haven’t connected any of that previously with the RWS 4C lazy scene, where nothing much seems to be going on at all. The Four of Cups refusal of present day, and his current reality, that includes gifts laden with potential for growth and experiencing new states of being, implies that this figure is still back in the Three of Cups (3C) ‘party in full swing’ mode, and obstinately refusing to move at all.

Tarot Numerology

I realised the importance of Uranus or God as being 0 and outside of ourselves (the beginning), and Uranus (God) being within Man as number 22 additionally, 22 being the Master Builder number (also referred to as the Holy Spirit in Christianity) and 22 is the number of Major Arcana cards within the 78-cards of the Tarot deck.

That was difficult to explain, and I had great difficulty wrapping my head around these new concepts. I’ve always loved numbers for their Universal Truth and inability to lie.

Through researching my new Tarot numbering system my number Loving has only strengthened, with a new Passion for Sacred Geometry.
