This queen has very good posture. She sits upright in her throne with angel and butterfly carvings. Her cloak is blue with puffs of white clouds and her crown is of golden butterflies. Angels are messengers of divine wisdom and butterflies catalogue the metamorphosis of inspirational growth. She holds a sword upright in her right hand and extends her left hand in a gesture of grace. Judgement and mercy melded in her pronouncements. She is just in her assessment of our efforts and encourages us to use our thoughts wisely. Be fair, honest, good and true in all our endeavors and we will fly like the bird up above.
They say that Justice is blind and that the scales she holds will determine the verdict. Truth and fairness and clear thinking are the keys. But here the sword is pointed downwards and surely the scales will not hold whatever is placed on them to be weighed as they too are upside down. Is this a call to look inwards and face a personal burden of responsibility? Is there a situation that needs mending? Before we can solve the injustice of the world we must come clean with whatever offenses might be buried within our psyche. Let’s face the music, perhaps ask for forgiveness and allow justice to find its rightful upright position.
Ouch! It’s painful to see the Magician on his head so to speak. If you’re feeling thwarted this week and none of those resources usually at your fingertips are present or coming together to aid you in your creative pursuits, well then perhaps this is how the Magician Reversed plays out. However, even though the cup, pentacle, sword and wand fall from their place on his work-table, the Magician continues to point towards heaven and earth aligning his energy as a connector between the divine and the world. The Magician knows how to use the world to manifest spiritual intentions. We see this connection as everlasting although this week there might be a minor setback in the manifestation flow. Some meditation perhaps is warranted to center oneself and focus on intentions to prepare for the time when manifestation comes more easily. Self-alignment is the key this week. Have a good one!
Justice sits on a throne wearing a red robe holding a double-edged sword in her right hand of action and golden scales in her left hand of intuition. The sword is upright and cuts through matter with logic and clarity. The scales harken back to Egyptian mythology when the dead person’s heart was placed on the scale and weighed against a feather placed on the other side. If the scale remained balanced the dead person was able to go to Paradise. Which brings us to the question…how heavy is your heart? And are you combining it with your logic to make your decisions? For that matter, what is justice? How is it given? Is it the difference between right and wrong, fair and unfair, just and unjust? And who makes the call? The person seeking justice or the person giving it? When making decisions we seek the truth because we know that each decision we make has an effect. We may not see or feel it right away but in the karmic cycle of life we will. This week we pay attention to the effects of our decisions and we do not take lightly the import of our actions.
