It’s the 36th week of the year and the card of the week is the Six of Swords. There’s an 6:04 interesting code in the numbers for the week and that’s where we get an idea of what this week is going to be about. Things could get a little confusing as I break this down but just stick with me and it will all make sense.
So if take a look at the numerology for the week, we get this sequence
The week is numbered 36, that breaks down to 9 in numerology (3+6 =9).
So we start the week off with a 9 and the week is also numbered 9. Therefore, this will be an important week for wrapping things up. That makes sense because Mercury stations retrograde at 6:04 AM PST on 8/30/16. Mercury Retrograde is all about ending things that need to end.
But wait, there’s more. Because we move into September, the numbers for each day reset. So if we take the numbers for each day before we enter September, we get 9+1+2+3= 1+5=6 a number of victory and overcoming challenges. So these endings that we will be facing will be endings that bring happiness. In fact, so many happy things may be happening that they don’t even see, like endings at all. This is proved by the fact that if we look at the numbers of the day starting with September 1, we get 1+2+3= 6.
Lastly, if we add up all the numbers for each day of the week, 9+1+2+3+1+2+3=2+1 =3. 3 is a number of two becoming one, of things finally coming together and making sense. And if we were to look at each Tarot card associated with these numbers, Empress (3), Lovers (6) and Hermit (9), we get our Mantra: I choose to create my experiences. What you are really becoming aware of is your own power. Remember how I talked about initiation a few weeks ago and that often times, pain and even simulated deaths are parts of initiations into secret societies and hermetic magical groups. If you’ve experienced a death recently, whether it be metaphorically or an actual death of a loved one, this ending has initiated you into the good things that have been promised because this is a 9 year. I’ve done a lot of Tarot readings this week and almost everyone who has come to me has come to verify that a difficult period in their lives is over and they’re moving forward. So if you’re looking for verification, the answer is yes. It’s over and you’re ready to move on to bigger and better things. This is all reassured by the card of the week, the 6 of Swords, a card of moving out of the gloomy, difficult time in your life and on to better things.
Mantra: I choose to create my experiences.

Sunday 8/28/16 Wheel of Fortune
Moon in Cancer
Moon Void of Course 11:23 PM PST
The Wheel of Fortune is a card that appears when your luck is about to change and in the upright position, it’s usually for the better. Moon square Neptune at 2:41 PM PST could cloud your intuition. Use your intuition if you think someone is trying to pull the wool over your eyes. Moon sextile Jupiter at 8:54 PM PST will bring happiness, harmony and flow to your evening. Moon sextile Venus at 11:23 PM PST will keep this love flowing. When Jupiter and Venus get together, people feel loved and lucky. Moon sextile Mercury also at 11:23 PM PST added to the mix will bring harmonious interactions with your loved ones. Mercury conjunct Venus at 11:32 PM PST will enhance your intellectual relationships with people and may even lead to love confessions. These transits combined will lessen if not completely erase the intensity of Mercury preparing to station retrograde. The Moon is in the loving, caring sign of Cancer until it goes void of course at 11:23 PM PST. The number of the day is 9, and with all the good energy and good fortune about, you will find yourself wrapping up projects on an upbeat note.
Mantra: “Fortune’s wheel is ever turning” — unknown
Monday 8/29/16 High Priestess
Moon Enters Leo 1:11 AM PST
When the High Priestess appears, it’s time to listen to your intuition. #Venus enters the balance oriented sign of #Libra today where She will stay until 9/23/16. When Venus is in Libra, you may find yourself craving the more refined things in life. This is not a time for extremes; it’s time to find equilibrium. This may cause your relationships to swing like a pendulum, but for the most part, it will be a time to enjoy being sexy and attractive. Moon trine Saturn at 7:20 PM PST will set the stage for the next month, slowing you how enjoyable a stable life can be. The Moon is in the shiny sign of Leo for most of the day so it’s a good day to make lasting impressions. The number of the day is 1(0), a number of new beginnings.
Tuesday 8/30/16 5 of Pentacles
Moon in Leo
Moon Void of Course 9:20 PM PST
Mercury Stations Retrograde
When the 5 of Pentacles appears, you may be left feeling impoverished and left out in the cold. If you’re struggling, don’t ignore the help that is being extended to you; embrace it. Moon trine Mars at 12:51 AM PST will bring you the leadership and confidence you need to face the challenges ahead. If you are asleep during this time, these themes may appear in your dreams. Mercury stations retrograde at 6:04 AM PST and he will remain in retrograde until 8/21/16. With all the Jupiter and Venus energy hanging around plus two eclipses, this Mercury retrograde will be a wild card and could even bring good fortune in love, luck and money. This Mercury retrograde breaks all the rules so the unexpected surprises that come along with a Mercury retrograde period may actually be very pleasant, positive surprises!
Wednesday 8/31/16 Empress
Moon Enters Virgo 8:22 AM PST
This will be a day to enjoy all the sensual pleasures of life. The Empress lounges in a beautiful garden. She is comfortable and happy and spoiled. It’s a day to indulge in earthly pleasures. Take time to appreciate art and beauty. Laugh and love deeply. Make love from the depths of your soul. This card indicates pregnancy so if you are trying to fall pregnant, today may be your lucky day. There are no exact aspects to mention but the Moon does enter the meticulous sign of Virgo at 8:22 AM PST. When the Moon is in Virgo, people pay attention to details. Instead of being picky, focus on the pleasing things that surround you. The number of the day is 3, also the number of the Empress. It is a number of things coming together and a number of creation.
Mantra: You have the power to create whatever you desire.
Thursday 9/1/16 Lovers
New Moon 2:03 AM PST
Partial Solar Eclipse in Virgo 2:03 AM PST
There will also be an annular Solar Eclipse on 9/1/16 at 2:03 AM PST, which means that once again, we won’t be able to see it in the States. This eclipse will be visible over most of Africa and Madagascar. Solar eclipses change the inertia in life that could change how you view love, relationships and abundance. This is especially interesting because the card of the day is the Lovers. My own personal theory about this eclipse is that it will bring into question choices you’ve made in love and relationships. It call you to be accountable for them, for better or for worse. And if you’ve been on hold regarding these situations, that won’t last for much longer. Moon square Saturn at 3:25 AM PST could bring energy that challenges your stability based on your choices in love and relationships. If you are asleep during these transits, these themes may appear in your dreams. Moon opposition Neptune at 4:33 AM PST could only deepen the confusion. Moons square Mars at 11:39 AM PST could cause you to lash out thanks to the tense energy in the air. The build up will break with Moon trine Pluto at 12:59 PM PST as it takes all of this energy to cause an awakening to great truths that you were in denial of before. Sun square Saturn at 8:22 PM PST will remind us that the lesson learnt today is that even though we may not get what we want, we are always given what we need. The Moon is in the picky sign of Virgo so the cause of what will go down will be things that have fallen through the cracks that should have been addressed long ago. The number of the day is 1(0), assuring us that for better or for worse, what occurred today will be the beginning of a new journey.
Mantra: “You can’t always get what you want.”– The Rolling Stones
Friday 9/2/16 Prince (Knight) of Swords
Moon in Virgo
Moon Void of Course 3:13 PM PST
Moon Enters Libra 5:55 PM PST
The Prince or Knight of Swords rushes into everything without a plan. He is stubborn, headstrong but also ambitions and determined. Sun opposition Neptune at 9:38 AM PST could bring tension and confusion to your morning. If possible, avoid confrontation until Mercury conjunct Jupiter at 10:18 AM PST. This transit will bring enthusiasm and optimism that will help you pin point patterns and see the details in the cause of conflicts. Moon conjunct Mercury at 3:00 PM PST will help thoughts and feelings flow to clear up any confusion that may have happened early and set things in the right place. Chances are, the real cause of conflict was acting before thinking things through completely. The Moon is void of course until 5:55 PM PST when it enters the justice oriented sign of Libra, signaling that the conflicts you come into contact with today are karmic. Also, since the Moon enters Libra at approximately 5:55 PM PST, these are deep spiritual challenges that may have seemed impossible to overcome but the stars are working in your favor. The number of the day is 2, and just as the scales of Libra have two sides, so does every conflict.
Mantra: Everything has the potential to be brought back into balance.
Saturday 9/3/16 Chariot
Moon in Libra
The Chariot appears when you are challenged to steer your course despite the fact you may feel like you’re going in 2 different directions. Moon sextile Saturn at 1:55 PM PST will help you get your head on straight and do what needs to be done. Moon square Pluto at 11:39 PM pST could tempt you to look on the darkside as you cling to things that must be left in the past. Take a lesson from the Chariot and move forward. The Moon is in the balanced sign of Libra again, showing you that you must unite the dual sides of yourself to have the control you seek. If you do this, two will become one as foretold with the number of the day, 3, and you will steer your course in the direction you want to go.
Mantra: The past was once the future but the only time we have is now.
