Today we explore the relationship between our own creative force versus what we may create with the help of others.

In the Spiritsong Tarot featured here, the Ace of Wands is depicted as a Ram and Wands as the renewing symbol of acorns.

This is an interesting card combo when paired with the 7th house, because it represents the natural polarity between Aries and Libra.

In the wheel of the zodiac, each sign has a polar opposite that reflects complementary aspects of that sign. Aries, or the 1st house, signifies “I am” while Libra or the 7th house, says “We are.”

Aries is about ourselves, our identity, and our ego. Libra helps us take what we know about ourselves and apply it to our chosen relationships and partnerships. The inventive and creative fire of Aries initiates action on the sturdy, balanced earth energy of Libra. Libra helps Aries make their grand dreams a reality. Aries helps Libra innovate.

This is a personal polarity for me as I have my South node in Aries and North Node in Libra. Part of my karmic journey is learning to integrate my highly individualistic and ego-driven personality into serving the collective. Group work is extremely challenging for me as I want to either take charge or check out altogether. This is where my black and white thinking can get the most extreme and creates an “all or nothing” attitude.

I’m learning how to release control in the name of collaboration. This may not necessarily mean partnership, but it does mean thinking about my relationship with my audience. It is helpful for me to think as much about how I am helping others as I do about expressing myself in a “successful” way.

If I only focus on my own critical expectations, I may miss the magical moments where I actually make a difference in the world.

Deck: Spiritsong Tarot and AstroOracle

Juno is a large asteroid that was once considered a planet. In Greek mythology, she is a goddess: the daughter of Saturn, wife of Jupiter, and mother of Mars.

Juno is nothing if not complicated, with many interpretations and meanings ascribed to her by scholars throughout time.

Now mostly known to represent youthful energy, Juno also represents how we use knowledge and power in a wise refined way.

The Astro-Oracle deck used here associates Juno with equality and partnership, and paired with the Ace of Swords it reminds us that we are not just in this for ourselves.

All Aces in Tarot bring in the new, and today we may be gifted with insight about our social roles. We may have a breakthrough or brand new idea about an old problem. Fresh information may come to light that prompts us to reexamine our role in a partnership or group endeavor.

This week, finesse may be more important than force. As the saying goes, you can catch more flies with honey than vinegar.
