It’s the 33rd week of the year. Funny because Jesus was 33 when he died. The card of the week is the Knight of Swords Reversed. The Knight of Swords rushes into things without thinking where as the knight of Swords reversed doesn’t have a choice. You’re along for the ride whether you want to be or not. We are all. If you don’t feel an immense change coming, then you must be living under a rock. Even those who can’t feel the vibrations of the planets like we do feel it. Something is coming.
Mantra: You ain’t seen nothing yet…

Monday 8/14/17 10 of Swords (reversed)
Numerology: 5
Last Quarter in Taurus 6:15 PM PST
If you’ve felt like a voodoo doll, pinned down by karma, those pins are about to be removed. We’re in the last quarter heading into the eclipse. This is pretty symbolic, actually. The last quarter during a lunar cycle is when we look back and see how far we’ve come. But for this particular eclipse, we’re looking back over an entire cycle. The reminder here is that the devil is in the details. It’s a reminder to plan better for the next cycle. Whatever your intention is, let it be a good one for the next lunar cycle that brings the next big turn of the wheel. Moon sextile Neptune at 2:55 AM PST is a dreamy, empathetic transit that will find you spending time looking forward to spending time with people you care about. Moon square Mars at 7:30 AM PST is a pugnacious transit that brings trouble with it. Keep your cool. Moon sextile Venus at 7:49 AM PST pours sugar on the mischief and puts out fires. Moon trine Pluto at 9:33 AM PST stimulates creativity and sensitivity. Powerful feelings could lead to obsession. Moon square Sun at 6:15 PM PST brings the last push of challenges before you get a much needed respite. The number of the day is 5, a number that reminds us no matter how intense things get, keep pushing forward.
Mantra: The sword left in your back is the gift you’ve been given to fight for the future you have been given the opportunity to create.

Tuesday 8/15/17 2 of Swords
Numerology: 6
Moon Enters Gemini 7:06 AM PST
The 2 of Swords is a card of being blinded by choice. If things feel at a standstill, it’s only the calm before the storm. We’re right in the middle of Mercury Retrograde intensified so sometimes it’s better to look away than get fixated on things that we can’t do anything about. Moon opposition Pluto at 4:13 AM PST is a transit of intense love experience. You may feel an incredible attraction to someone who is no damn good for you. If someone seems too good to be true, chances are that they are. The Moon is void of course in Taurus, the sign of Venus, the goddess of love, early in the day and then enters the dualistic sign of Twin Flames, Gemini, at 7:06 AM PST. The number of the day is 6, the number that rules the lover card. With the Sun and Moon coming together to unite in the sky over the US for the first time in 700+ years, souls are set to meet that have been waiting centuries. But only those ready to see their own reflection will recognize it.
Mantra: We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
