Magdalena Tarot Forecast 8/19/18 – 8/26/18 I Feel Darkness Creeping In

To receive the forecast in your inbox, along with other goodies, in your inbox every week, join my mailing list here!

It’s the 33rd week of the year and the card of the week is the Moon.  33 is a very mystical number and this is most definitely a mysterious week. Where as last week we took a walk through the first 10 cards of the Major Arcana, this week we take a walk on the darker side. If it seems like fall is creeping in and the year is getting dark in the Northern Hemisphere, if it feels like Lamas made the veil as thin as it should be on Samhain, you’re not the only one feeling it. We  have five planets in retrograde; a few of which  create darker circumstances in retrograde motion.: Mars,  Neptune, Pluto,  Saturn and Uranus. Also, According to Nasa, Pluto already crossed the ecliptic, or the path the sun follows, in July, from North to South. but some astrologers believe that it will happen on Halloween this year. This could bring a major global shift with with some very dark shadows. My theory is we’re already feeling that energy creep in and this week will be no exception as the shadows get longer.  But the card of the week is the Moon, so we have two choices here. It’s time to explore the darkness as the year dies.
Mantra: Who turned off the lights?

Yesterday the card of the day was the Star and today is the Tower. Although it may seem like there’s no turning back, remember your hope from yesterday and look to the stars for guidance.

Wednesday 08/22/18 The Devil

The Devil appears when you must choose freedom or illusions.

PST is a lazy transit. Use this time to give thanks for what you have.

The Sun enters the meticulous sign of Virgo today where He will stay until 9/22/18. When the Sun is in Virgo, it’s a good time to finish clearing out anything left over from this past Mercury Retrograde. Virgo has a good eye for what needs to stay and what needs to go. If you use this time for clearing, you will find that the attachments that have been holding you back will remove themselves and you won’t even notice once you’ve let go. The Moon is still in Capricorn, which is also the planet that rules the Devil card so if you feel hurt, it’s only because you’ve hurt yourself. The number of the day is 5, a number of overcoming obstacles.
Mantra: Bless me, Father, for I have sinned.
