View Full Version : Tarot - Astrology Swap

04-09-2009, 09:40
I have been reading this forum and all the information is incredible! I am now very very curious to find out about my chart.

I can offer you six months supply of detailed 3 card tarot readings - basically I will be on call for you for six months (within reason, not more than one a day :P ) lol. Seeing how much work and effort it takes you to do a chart, I couldn't offer anything less. I will also provide detailed feedback, and I would appreciate if you would do the same for me.

I read intuitively, you can see examples of how I read in the circle of stones, RED exchanges and PTR exchanges over at the tarot forum.

I hope this post is appropriate and I look forwards to exhanging readings/charts!

Hi Emily,

When you say 'find out about my chart' have you anything particular in mind? Especially as you are offering quite an exchange there.

Modern Astrology concentrates on providing 'psychological profiles' - character delineation. I use traditional methods and work best with specific and concrete issues.

So I think if you can give some indication of the type of thing you want to 'find out' about it will help people decide to what extent they can help - and indeed feel competent to help.

Emy, there are many who would just whip over to a site that gives them a free print out of what you are asking, and many who have software that will do the same.

And many who do it the old way which is absolutely fascinating and something I'm learning to do.

Just saying, you are offering a lot for a pig in a poke so to speak.

Thank you both very much for your advice!

I like the traditional approach, and I would like a character overview but perhaps also a six month outlook concentrating on the emotions (love and friendship) and finances? Also any advice/warnings the stars have for me in the near future?

Does that suit the traditional approach more? I was unsure how to word what I wanted and how astrology is worked (thus the swap :p :) ), so any advice is welcome!

Ok Emily, can I suggest you post your natal details - time date place of birth and we'll take it from there. Rather than put pressure on you (for those six months of readings) or on us (to do in depth readings) we can go step by step and see how we go.

That makes sense, thank you Minderwiz :)

Here are my natal details:

4:34 am 21/04/1989 (a Friday) at Orsett Hospital in Essex, UK. I think I have found the longitude and latitude for it: Latitude = 51.5100, Longitude = 0.3659

Hi Em, I hope my post didn't beat you out of a deal, someone thinking I was offering so they didn't. I just wanted you to know there are different ways of doing the same thing :)

I'm still at the learning to tie my shoes stage, not looking to do a chart.

OK, A quick look at your chart shows that you were born almost exactly on the full Moon - aabout 10 minutes of arc after the perfection, in time that's about 20 minutes. Some information on planetary poisitions (but without interpretation yet)

Your a night birth, and the Moon is above the horizon and in a nocturnal sign, So it's strongly placed - the Arabians called this sort of postion Hayz. The Moon is in Scorpio, where it is in Fall, but it also is in it's own Triplicity, so the 'Fall' is offset. Mars rules Scorpio and was the Hour ruler for your birth. Mars Trines the Moon, and it is usually seen as a good indicator if a planet is favourable aspected by its ruler. Mars is not particularly strong. Mars is however angular being on the IC and it also trines the North Node (as does the Moon). So there's a favourable configuration there. I'll look at in more detail when I've examined the chart.

The other things I've noted are that The Ascendant is in Pisces, ruled by Jupiter, (You were born on a Thursday - Jupiter's day) and Aries (also ruled by Mars) is intercepted in the first. So Mars is going to be an important planet for you, as well as the Moon. Your Taurus Sun is conjunct Venus, it's ruler, which is also in opposition to the Moon. Venus' essential dignity is high but it is combust and opposed by the Moon. Although Sun and Moon are in the first, I'd not really treat them as angular as Taurus is some distance from Pisces - you have big first and seventh Houses..

Of the remaining two personal planets, Saturn is strong in essential dignity (in Capricorn) and has some good accidental dignity (in the eleventh). Mercury rules your descendant and is in Taurus in your second house. Both Mercury and Venus are occidental and thus have a little extra accidental dignity.

I've attached a copy so that you can follow the delineation in the next post. I've not included the outers and the only one that I'll be mentioning is Neptune which is in a tight but separating conjunction with Saturn.

Oh wow that is fascinating!

(Just to clarify with the english-american date differences, 21st April 1989 - I was also told that was a Friday. How interesting if not!)

Thank you so much and look forwards to seeing what else you come up with!

Well it was and it wasn't LOL

Our standard civil day runs from midnight to midnight. In those terms you were born on a Friday.

However the Astronomical/Astrological day runs from Sunrise to Sunrise. Which in turn is divided into two - the period from Sunrise to Sunset (day time or diurnal) and Sunset to Sunrise (night time or nocturnal)

You were born before Sunrise and in terms of the Astronomical day that was 'yesterday's night or Thursday night. Sunrise on a 'Thursday' is marked by the hour of Jupiter (Thor's day in North European tradition). Sunrise on a 'Friday' is marked by the hour of Venus (Freia's day in North European tradition). If you were French, you would recognise Jeudi and Vendredi as the days of Jupiter and Venus. So if you're using the rhyme, 'Monday's child is .....' Then you should read yourself as 'Thursday's child'.

PS I was also born on a 'Friday' before sunrise so I too am a Thursday's child.

Oh wow that is fascinating! 0.0

There is so much I have to learn! This seems to be the place to do it! :P :D

Thank you for explaining it to me!

I am now going to research Jupiter!

The traditional version of 'character' is 'temperament'. You come out as a mixture of all four, though predominantly 'Phlegmatic' and 'Melancholic' This suggests that you are more comfortable in your own environment or own 'world' and have a creative imagination. You can cope quite well by yourself, and may even prefer your own company. This means that you don't get swayed by popular views or opinions, you rely on your own take, even if this is out of synch with majority opionion. You also have a small chunk of Sanguine and an even smaller chunk of Choleric, which means that you can cope with social gatherings and even come across as a sociable person but social gatherings are not interesting in their own right - if they fit in with your interests then that's OK.

Your drive level is relatively low, because you like to think things out first and consider your response. You might even judge that some situations are just not worth action. However when you do reach a decision to act there is a lot of force behind it.

You have the ability to think in an orgsnised and systematic manner and this enables you ro make the most of your communication skills,

Oh wow. Thank you!

I like to think that is all true ;)

Astrology truely is fascinating.

If you want to look at those issues you raised, I'll look at the directions, returns and transits for the next six months. To do that I also need to know where you spent your last birthday

09-09-2009, 07:01
Oooh I would love it if you could do that!

I spent my last birthday in Suffolk (until 10am) Latitude 52.04845
Longitude 0.72572
and London (all over) Latitude 51.50015
Longitude -0.12624 until the next day.

Let me know when you would like your first tarot reading, if you have a specific one of my decks you'd like and if you have a specific question/area you would like me to look at for you. :D

09-09-2009, 08:15
Well that looks near enough for me to use your natal chart for the basis of the return. If you'd moved some distance then I'd have to do a relocation. I'm off on holiday on Saturday so you might well get two or three very spread out replies.

09-09-2009, 10:09
That's fine, I live in Suffolk if that helps, just had a couple of days in London for my birthday!

Have a wonderful holiday and thank you so much for doing this!

Emily x :)

Well I had to spend the last few days getting everything ready for the holiday so I won't get time for any detailed work till I get home next week - there did look a couple of events likely in the latter part of this year but will need to look for confirmatory evidence.

Unless the weather turn lousy and at the moment it's terrific, I probably won't get any time, even if I had my sources with me but I will take a look on return.

14-09-2009, 02:34
Thank you very much, and take your time! :)

Just let me know if you want any tarot readings done, and have a wonderful holiday! I hope the weather DOES stay nice for it!

Sorry for the delay - not only a busy holiday but then had to cat sit for daughter on her holiday to Florida, where and when she got engaged. So things have been quite hectic.

I'm assuming that your birth time is very accurate. If there's some error, it could make a significant difference to the timinigs I give here. At best you should allow something like 6 to 9 months from the time given and at worst the timings may be out by a year to 18 months.

There are three key events timed for the next six months.

Firstly the primary directed Sun sextiles your Mercury around 14th of this month. Mercury rules your seventh house, so that might (and I mean might) indicate a possible new relationship coming.

Secondly a month later primary directed Saturn opposes your Mars. This is not likely to produce so cheerful a result, It's possibly a time when you need to to excercise a lot of self control and direction.

The third event is timed for the end of February next year, when primary directed Sun crosses your AScendant. This could show up in a number of ways, a major stage in your personal development and your life.

Now I repeat these timings are provisional, though I'll try and look at solar returns and transits to tie them down. Please remember that the error could be quite large in timing.

My stupid notification didn't work, so sorry about the delay in replying!!

I was born at 04:34 in the morning so it is as accurate as I can get it :)

Oooh interesting. I did meet a lot of new people last month, and this month self-control is already going to be an issue (mostly financially) so that is very interesting to know.
