It’s the 10th week of the year and the card of the week is the 9 of Cups. In numerology, 1(0) is a number of endings becoming beginnings and we also have 4 9 cards that appear this week (9 of wands, 9 of Cups and 9 of Pentacles and the Moon which adds to 9 in numerology). It’s also interesting to note how positive two of the 9 cards are: the 9 of Cups is a card of wishes coming true and the 9 of Pentacles is a card of freedom, independence and the return of lovers. Throw the 9 of Wands in there and it may read that this week we could have too much of a good thing, which isn’t surprising considering Venus is in Retrograde. But consider the Moon, which points to things are not as they seem, which is also an attribute of Venus Retrograde. There’s also a couple of 2 thrown in there, the 2 of Wands and the High Priestess, reminding us that balance is absolutely necessary when we’re in the middle of the strong relationships on the way. The 1 signles the opportunity for new beginnings presenting themselves but remember that these are huge life lessons coming your way. If you don’t feel ready for taking on this level of intensity, skip the lesson and let the connection fizzle out.
Mantra: Each connection represents a world waiting to be born inside us.

Monday 3/6/17 5 of Swords
Mono Void of Course 12:22 AM PST
Moon Enters Cancer 4:54 AM PST
The 5 of Swords appears when a meaningless struggle has come to an end. There is no winner in this fight. Both parties walk away empty handed although one side may not recognize it yet. If confronted today, do not take up the fight, it will only end badly for both parties involved. Take the high energy from Moon sextile Mars at 12:22 AM PST and use it for taking the lead. The charisma to get others to follow you is there. And if someone isn’t interested, let them go their own way instead of trying to force your ideas on them. Sun conjunct Mercury at 4:29 PM PST is a transit that favors great communication. It’s a good day for new business ventures as long as they will be wrapped up within the Venus Retrograde period since it is not favorable to start new long term projects during this time. As long as you stay open to what others have to say, you’ll have a good day. The Moon is void of course until 4:54 AM PST when She enters the motherly sign of Cancer. Remember to show compassion for others today and they won’t forget it. The number of the day is 1(0), a number of new beginnings.
