Tarot of Delphi -- Four of Coins

Four of Coins

Today you want to be thinking about what you’re holding onto that’s keeping you from moving forward.

“Coins” is often automatically presumed to mean money, but it can extend to other areas as well, such as personal values, principles and belief systems.

The concepts of hoarding and squandering are depicted in this version of the Four of Coins (from the gorgeous Tarot of Delphi) by the Greek god Narcissus, who became so enamored with his own reflection that he was unable to turn away, causing him to miss on opportunities to experience the love of another.

Ask yourself, what are you holding onto too tightly and what potential opportunities are you missing out on as a result? It could be money or material possessions; or it could be loved ones or ideals. Whatever it is, remember that in protecting your own assets and keeping peril at bay, you’re also preventing new experiences from getting in.

One of the more positive aspects of this card is the idea of falling in love with yourself. We all know that this is the first step toward establishing healthy relationships with others. But taken too far it can lead to the degradation of love’s purest essence.

Remember that fear — along with greed, stinginess, avarice, etc. — is a symptom of a much greater problem. It can stop you in your tracks and prevent you from acquiring the very things you want. The fear or not having enough — or of losing what you already have — can reverberate endlessly like the ripples in Narcissus’ stream.

Embracing this philosophy can act as a springboard for you to make some important changes. The Four of Coins encourages you to let go of your fears and open your heart.

Today you may find yourself needing to make some very difficult decisions.

The Justice card refers specifically to knowing (and acting on) the difference between right and wrong. But it also usually involves finding a middle ground between opposing forces: cause and effect, action and consequence, head and heart, etc.

In this version of the card — from the divine Tarot of Delphi — we meet the goddess Circe as she offers a cup of her magic potion to Odysseus.

The potion was meant to lull him to sleep and put him under her spell, with the wand in her other hand poised to turn him into swine.

But Odysseus had been forewarned by Hermes and disarmed her before she attacked. He fought cunning and treachery (hers) with logic and strategy (his), exacting the release of his men and thus Justice.

The Justice card calls for you to look at all sides of a situation before you make a decision, especially if the “right answer” is unclear.

You may have to remove yourself from the equation completely, or detach yourself enough from any personal investment to make a fair determination.

It may be a situation that you’re personally involved in, such as a relationship that tugs at your heartstrings but is not in alignment with your principles. Or you may be asked to mediate a disagreement among friends or family members.

It isn’t about choosing sides. It’s about being able to tap into the “truth” objectively and impartially. In the end you’ll have to live with the fallout from your choices — for better or worse. So be sure you know which side of the fence you’re on before you take a stand.

The Lovers

Today’s Venus / Neptune trine brings thoughts of love and romance to the forefront. It doesn’t matter if you’re single, dating, married, separated, divorced, or a combination of any of the above, this aspect says you’re going to be thinking about relationships today.

The Lover’s card is about “love.” But it’s not always an easy or definitive love. Sometimes there are feelings of ambivalence or uncertainty, and sometimes there are choices to be made that can complicate things even more.

You may be wondering where you stand in a relationship or whether someone you care about feels the same. You may be ready to fall head over heels in love again and are hoping for someone new to come along.

This doesn’t mean today will be without challenges.You’ll have to figure out ways to make your own unique relationship paradigm satisfying for you. When things are in sync in our relationships, everything else just seems to falls into place. And when they’re not, it’s hard to think about anything else.

The figures in this version of the card — Cupid and Psyche, from the gorgeous Tarot of Delphi — overcame their own set of challenges in order to be together. Theirs is a story of love, but also loss, separation, betrayal of trust, and ultimately triumph.

You may be confronted with similar issues today. You may need to ask important questions — if only of yourself. And you may most importantly need to look at your current relationship status and determine whether it’s meeting your needs.

The good news is that you too can triumph — just like Cupid and Psyche. How you handle the challenges thrown your way will determine the outcome, so be mindful of your actions as well the decisions you make today.

Tarot of Delphi -- Hero of Wands

Hero of Wands

Jupiter turns direct in Leo today and starts moving forward again, after four long months in retrograde motion. This change in direction should have you feeling more confident and enthusiastic about the direction your life is heading.

The Hero of Wands — this deck’s version of the King of Wands — represents the quintessential “Leo” energy. He’s bold, assertive, dynamic and confident.

He’s passionate and driven, also like the King of Wands. He’s powerful and authoritative. There’s a boldness and a bravery present in this version that lends him a “larger than life” persona and renders him unstoppable.

The Hero in this version of the card is none other than Marcus Curtius, the legendary soldier who sacrificed his life for the inhabitants of his beloved Rome.

When a giant pit developed in the Roman Forum, it was ordained that only the City’s most prized possessions could satisfy and fill it.

Marcus Curtius, knowing instinctively that the Romans prized courage and bravery above all else, mounted his stallion and leapt into the chasm, which closed immediately. The devotion and chivalry that are present in this card are qualities that we might all strive to possess.

As Jupiter continues its journey through Leo, remember that you may be called upon to act with the same nobility and honor as the Hero of Wands possesses. The challenge will be finding a way to minimize the severity of any personal sacrifices you’ have to make, while still conducting yourself with integrity and grace.
