Hello to you my magical friends, and happy Tuesday from the Pacific Northwest!
Today I have pulled a card from Alistair Crowley's Thoth deck to bring us all some much needed advice concerning Mars' direct transit tomorrow.
Today is Mars day, meaning the word Tuesday comes from the Old English Tīwesdæg meaning 'day of Tiw' and the Latin dies Marti meaning 'day of Mars'. What better day of the week to talk about old hothead Mars?
Mars is the planet of war, sexual energy, and the drive to get things done, but since April 18, 2016 our old pal Mars has been in retrograde, and I'll wager to bet you've been feeling it. When Mars is in retrograde it can feel like all forward momentum has been lost, or possibly that you feel like life is moving ahead, only to be thrown back a few steps. I certainly have been feeling a sluggish energy since April which has been causing my little Mercury ruled mind to wonder, is it ever going to end?
Have no fear friends of the universe, Mars returns direct tomorrow, but what does that mean for the collective we? This transit will bring along with it a rekindling of the slow burning Mars in retrograde coals that have been smoldering for a couple of months now.
So today I wanted to see what the most important part of this transit is for us all, which resulted in the Prince of Disks card pictured above. In traditional tarot this card is the Page of Pentacles which indicates the beginning of a process of sorts. In Alistair Crowley's Thoth deck, the card combines the disks element of earth with the element of air, resulting in a dust storm, if you will.
This indicates that for this Mars transit, we will all be brimming with thoughts and ideas (air) regarding some physical matter we have wanted to change for some time now (earth). Maybe you've been thinking of changing careers for sometime but haven't been sure where to start? Or perhaps you've been intending on changing your diet but weren't positive you could stay motivated? It may be something as simple as wanting to change the color of your hair, but you resisted because you were unsure of the color.
Whatever it is for you, the stagnant, confused, indecisive energy of Mars' retrograde is sure to burn away as it becomes direct again. The message here with the Prince of Disks is patience and fun. Be easy with yourself, Rome wasn't built in a day as they say, but also approach this transition with fun. The Prince asks you to delve into the childlike wonder that is not lost now that you're grown up, it's just hiding (as children tend to do.)
Approach the uncertainty with understanding and gentleness. Conjure up activities or interests you used to love as a child. What could you do for hours back then, that might bring you some much needed joy and fun now? I personally love blowing bubbles when I'm feeling this way because it's FUN. Simple as that, be kind to yourself and let this Mars transit drag us out of our indecision and into fruition!
Thanks for joining me today, I'm sending you beams of love from Warrior Pose. 😙
