Free Daily Tarotscope — Aug 25, 2014 — The Serpent

The Serpent

Today’s theme is “out with the old and in with the new” courtesy of a New Moon in Virgo and a Mars/ Saturn conjunction in Scorpio. What better representation of this energy than the Tower card, referred to here as the Serpent or Quickener.

The Tower card normally refers to sudden (or rapid) change — the unexpected dismantling of whatever in your life is in need of a drastic overhaul. It speaks of destruction and deconstruction — the breaking down of whatever’s stagnant or restrictive so that you can rebuild anew.

This is a kinder, gentler version, with the Serpent winding his body around the tower and trying to hold it together. Lightning flashes all around him, but he doesn’t shrink away: he strikes back. Even so you can see that the Tower is crumbling around him.

With Mars and Saturn in conjunction today, you do have some say in how this all plays out. The conjunction implies that there will be some destruction. But it also brings a certain amount of control over what is destroyed and what is salvaged — especially as these planets are coming together in Scorpio.

The Serpent is a symbol of transformation. It’s linked with Scorpio via ancient (Chaldean) astrology as well as to some aspects of the modern-day Scorpio. It sheds its skin, it burrows underground and it’s associated symbolically with Scorpionic traits like depth, danger, sexuality and passion.

If you feel that your carefully constructed world is crumbling all around you today, ask yourself what is no longer working for you and needs to be put to rest. It could be a relationship, a job, a set of ideals, or even a dream you had for the future which is no longer aligned with your principles.

Those flashes of lightning do more than just break apart the limitations in your life. They also act as flashes of insight and clarity. For that brief moment in time when everything stands still, you can see not only where you’re heading but what you need to leave behind.

Remember that each New Moon brings an opportunity to start fresh. And that you do participate in your destiny. As Mars (action, energy, aggression) comes together today with Saturn (restriction, oppression, crystallization), be ready to take part in this process. The more you take an active role in breaking down what is no longer serving you, the more say you will have in building back up what is.
