Glamour::Xanthic

Xanthic
adj. yellow or yellowish

I’m afraid I own nothing yellow or yellowish,
but there is one spectacular beauty who “owns” that color:  Kate Hudson

Since this tint is not too strong (such as neon yellow) it can imbue your personal style with taste and class.

Men, if you secretly have a yen for yellow, here are a couple of ways you can sneak it into your most manly spaces (your car and your den/music studio).

Yellow is a lovely color when paired with black – or even plum, but I happen to think it’s pure perfection with any shade of grey. It creates a nice balance (Yin-Yang) of masculine and feminine, ne pensez-vous pas?

Daily Tarot::Ace of Wands (reversed)

NOTE:  Reversed cards now interpreted as Upright – with greater emphasis.

Tarot of Delphi

Element:  Fire

Wands represent the element of Fire – the spark of life. Witches and wizards use wands to conjure spells. The Ace of Wands is a magical wand – culminating in a union of sexuality and spirituality.

Aces herald new beginnings, and the Ace of Wands points to a new source of passion and excitement in your life. It can also represent sexual feelings – desire. The intense passion created by the Ace of Wands can cause one to lose themselves. Embrace this flame; and, like the Phoenix, rise from the ashes renewed – reborn. The Ace of Wands is a positive card any way you look at it. You may find a new job headed your way; and if you’re single, expect a new romance to enter your life. As this card also represents creativity, the drive to create will be undeniably strong – run with it.

(As The Roots of the Power of Fire, the Ace of Wands symbolizes the first spark of creation and is experience in the crown of the head.)

Daily Tarot::The Hanged Man (reversed)

NOTE:  Reversed cards now interpreted as Upright – with greater emphasis.

The Tarot of Sexual Magic

Element:  Water
Number:  12 (the perfect number and symbol of the Zodiac)

The Hanged Man is all about revelations (those “aha!” moments) and the pursuit of higher wisdom.

In the Rider-Waite deck an aura surrounds the character’s head – a halo.
Reversed he looks like a dancer, gracefully balanced on one toe (Nureyev?)

The Hanged Man asks that you surrender yourself to what is being revealed. Change is a part of life and the Hanged Man is telling you to stop struggling. “Let go” and whatever has been “sacrificed” will be replaced with something else infinitely more positive. Banish negative thoughts and beliefs; they are self-fulfilling prophesies. Make sure your self-fulfilling prophesies are ones that will bring you the life you truly desire.

(As the Spirit of the Mighty Waters, The Hanged Man is associated with Neptune – the planet of illusion and ecstatic vision. This card is aligned with Odin, who hung on the Tree of Life for nine days; and represents letting go, breaking through old patterns, and sacrificing something to achieve something of greater value.)

In addition to the regular methodology I use for drawing my Daily Tarot Card, I’m starting to draw a SECOND card from the top of the deck (curiosity mostly, but also to compare the two):
3 of Cups  – Water
(Known as the Lord of Abundance, the 3 of Cups is aligned with Mercury in Cancer – representing heartfelt understanding, celebration, and love overflowing.)
Threes represent a sense of stability. With the 3 of Cups this translates to emotional stability, brought on by a circle of supportive friends – specifically female. This card may point to a reunion with a lost love. In any case, the 3 of Cups shows you’ve found joy and fulfillment in love; you are aware of its worth

Daily Tarot::8 of Wands

Animal Wisdom Tarot

Element:  Fire
Number:   Visually, 8 is the infinity symbol turned 90 degrees. Infinity is from the Latin infinitas = boundlessness.

Eights are all about the continuous cycle of doors closing and doors opening (see yesterday’s Post). The 8 of Wands suggest messages literally being “dropped out of the sky”. It’ll be your job to interpret them and listen to them, for they are bringing a great opportunity. You’re beginning to feel things happening very fast. Don’t be overwhelmed as the universe is moving things forward in a positive way. The 8 of Wands urges you to have patience. Go with the flow. There may be a breakthrough coming regarding a decision made by someone other than yourself. Don’t force the issue or try to make things happen. This is not about your agenda.

(The Lord of Swiftness is aligned with Mercury in Sagittarius. The 8 of Wands represents clear communication, overcoming misunderstandings, and sudden changes. Mercury rules intellect and logic and Sagittarius is the ultimate free-thinker. This pairing means that communication with others will be clear, honest, and direct – to the point.)
