Numerological break down calculation – 6 – Family, home, maternal feelings, love, the lovers, compassion, healing, community, empathy – 12 (1+2) = 3, Manifestation, communication, creativity, community, family, integration. 6 + 3 = 9 – Completion, healing of past wounds, wounded healer, humanitarianism, resolution.
The taming of the shrew; Shrew definition – a small mouse-like insectivorous mammal with a long pointed snout and tiny eyes. (Meekness or timidity metaphor).
2.a bad-tempered or aggressively assertive woman.
It is no coincidence that the strength card chose to make an appearance at this time considering that the main feature of this week is the powerful full moon in Leo!
The energy of Leo takes us into the energy of boldness, physical appearance, & the presence that we hold in relation to taking up space.
Thus, Leo inspires us to take a closer look at our ego. Check out my full moon in Leo article for more details.
The ego can be your bestfriend, or your worst enemy, dependent upon how aware, and conscious you can become of it. Too much – and You turn into the hungry narcissist, always searching for validation, & raging or misbehaving when you do not get it. This weekly reading in particular suggests a rather strong message from the feminine, as the strength card depicts a powerful woman who has learned to conquer her inner beast, & the empress card which Expresses all the feminine could be once her ego is balanced.
The empress is the energy that we invest in ourselves, in order to create surroundings that are supportive of our individual energetic expression. No more are the days that we seek to look outward for others to validate us, or to provide us with the essentials to create our own destinies.
Birth, and creation are signified here in a major way in combination with the expressive energies that the full moon in Leo asks that we tap into. The empress can be symbolised by the sprouting of beautiful, bountiful flowers, that have seen the test of time, or reached their peek.
If there is anything in particular that we have been sitting on, fearful to do, or uncertain of, this may be the week that we conclude that we are ready, either to take that next step forward, or to put out a creative project that has fully developed. Perhaps an energy is born within us this week, that sustains us, and allows us to watch over the growth of something new, becoming more responsible, and conscious in order to be able to nurture it, and ourselves.
The 9 of pentacles speaks of a time where things reach fruition. This full moon presents a powerful time for manifestation, & accumulation, despite new moons typically being the phase for manifestation. The number 3 could be abundant in our sightings this week, with Valentine’s Day around the corner inspiring us to fall in love with life again.. Spring is around the corner, and it is nearing time for us to present to the world what our darkness has taught us. There is much to share, and to offer, and it is reinforced with the 6 of wands that if we place in our best efforts, we will reap luxuries, and rewards.
This could be a time to plant seeds – seeds of thought in order to build new habits. The 6 of wands represents the individual who returns from battle, after a lengthy fight against external, and internal forces.
There could perhaps be a job promotion this week, the promise of a new endeavour, or a chance to maximise our financial security. The strength card asks that we do not let our ego get the best of us. Perhaps we are asked to humble ourselves towards our own struggles, & the struggles of others. We may be growing more compassionate, & understanding, as we learn just how much conflict is apart of the greater picture in life.
The two of swords sees us on the brink of monumental change. Perhaps we are asked to choose a direction, and or a destination. This may be the difference between choosing a new path, or remaining stagnant. It is easy at times of great change to grow fearful when we do not know what quite to expect, but the empress suggests timing is an important factor in manifestation. You have to experience all of the seasons, to truly know the abundance of the entire cycle.
A pivotal point is reached in which we must choose a destination, & choose to surrender a part of ourselves. Free will is still always, a very big factor.
The feminine energy could have a huge week of transition at this time. Being made more aware of her current or past placements in relationships. The empress could encourage us all to build a home within ourselves before seeking accommodation elsewhere. It is imperative to know who you are at this point – especially if you have spent a life time being confused, or fearful of persecution consciousness.
Realise that royalty is at your feet, years of patriarchal conditioning and bashing have just attempted to narrow your path. Even masculine energies have much to learn about the feminine this week! Perhaps a mother figure, a mother that they have made of a woman, (if they are male), highlights to them the true vision of the woman.
The 6 of wands is definitely a journey about being in search of heroism – wherever that may take us. A consciousness arises to do things with more tact, & to find better, healthier coping mechanisms.
