Balance and Equanimity

Tarot for the Autumn Equinox

Many of us have experienced a transitional summer and are now awaiting an upcoming autumn of balance and equanimity, when we can stand in stillness and experience stability and an open heart.

I have thrown four cards; one on each side of the two-card balance scale and vertical “stand.”

Bottom of the stand – 4 of Cups denotes a time to sit still, meditate and feel your feelings thoroughly. Beware the voices in your head and from outside; family, friends, society, they are of the old (ego) way. Listen to your heart. It knows the way. Patiently wait for your emotional surprise.

Top of the stand – Page of Pentacles/Coins represents information coming from the physical realm. Notice how your physical world is expressing your spirit. The outside world is teaching you a lesson now.

The balance card on the left (feminine) – The Lovers (6) guides you in choosing Love over Lust and being allowed to fully feel true love with your partner. True love is receiving one another in the feminine (receptive) way.

The balance card on the right (masculine) – 6 of Wands/Rods/Batons (6) speaks of being successful and not afraid to lead others on the path (the masculine way).

Both of the cards on the balance scale are the number 6, meaning harmony, balance, sincerity, love, and truth lightening our path with spiritual, emotional, mental and physical balance.
