Happy Fall Equinox! Mercury is finally direct so here’s the news! My daughter April and I are now offering readings at The Twisted Thistle Apothecary on Haight St.
My book, Magick Tarot, is about to be released through Amazon, so we’ll keep you posted…
What the Tarot tells us about the Candidates!
In my upcoming book, Magick Tarot, I explain how to discover your archetypal life, and current year, lessons through the Tarot.
Here are the archetypal cards for Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders and Jill Stein.
Since Hillary’s personality card is The Universe/World XXI, and her life card is The Empress, we have a woman who aspires to rulership of the world. May she reinvoke the loving, creative aspects of of Venus, that govern this card, through her work for families and women.
Donald’s personality card is The Fool 0, and his life card is the Emperor IV. We have a man who exhibits the worst aspect of The Fool, as in the guy wearing the dunce cap in the corner, who pretends to the throne of The Emperor.
Its fascinating that in my book the only cards I have renamed to evolve the Tarot archetypes, are The Empress, who is now Gaia, and The Emperor, who is now the Visionary Activist (thank you, Caroline Casey!).
We need to see the Earth as the living body of feminine nature and the masculine becoming the embodiment of power from within who expresses love, service to, and protection of Gaia.
Hillary is a Scorpio, born on Oct. 26th, 1947, and will be in a Libra Justice VIII year until 2 weeks before the election. This suggests that legal threats to her candidacy will be in play until she moves into The Hermit year on her birthday. (BTW, there have been more Scorpio presidents then any other sign.)
Donald’s birthday is June 14th, 1946, a typical Gemini who can flip flop without seeing that as a problem. He is already in the Leo year, definitely displaying all the worst Leo aspects by being egotistical, melodramatic, and wanting to be at center stage no matter what.
Bernie is a Virgo, born on September 8th, 1941 and his life card is The Hierophant/Teacher V. He has expressed the Virgo characteristic of service through shunning the tendency of our political game to make everything about cults of personality. Instead he chose to be the wise elder who educated us about socialism and what has gone so very wrong in this heartless, capitalist system. He entered the Justice year on his birthday. Thank you, Bernie!
Jill Stein was born on May 14th, 1950 and entered the Fortune year on her birthday. She brings the qualities of an educated and determined Taurus to the fore. Her soul card is The Chariot, VII, helping us on our journey to come home to Mother Earth.
Election Day, Nov. 8th, is a Fortune day, so anything can happen!
As Dylan said, “Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
…And don’t speak too soon
For the wheel’s (Fortune) still in spin
For the loser now
Will be later to win
And the times they are a-changin’”
