Today’s I Ching Hexagram for 4/10

Today’s I Ching Hexagram for Everyone:

29: Dangerous Depths

Sunday, April 10th, 2011

Hexagram 29

General Meaning: Exposure to passing dangers brings good fortune to those who move beyond them. Like boaters passing through white-water rapids, when you are faced with serious challenges, you must remain alert, take all available precautions, and above all, keep going forward so as to remove yourself from harm’s way. Once the danger has passed, good fortune.

The positive aspect of challenges is that they offer an excellent chance to cleanse the senses and strengthen the spirit. Surviving crises brings tremendous reinvigoration, and sharpens the eye and mind for future challenges.

It is reckless to court danger, but critical to inner development not to shrink from it either. Those who respond to challenges most effectively are those who are able to establish an inner bubble of calm in the midst of the action. A calm center keeps one rooted in the moment, alert and focused. Courage at such times springs from focused attention, from a willingness to penetrate the moment of danger to its very core, so as to shape it and transform the situation

Today’s Tarot Card for April 10th

Today’s Tarot Card for Everyone:


This Tarot Deck: Lovers Path

General Meaning: What has traditionally been known as the World card points to the presiding intelligence, called “Sophia,” or Wisdom, which upholds life on this and all worlds. A more precise title for this card might be “the Soul of the World,” also applicable as a symbol of personal empowerment and freedom. In most Tarot decks it is a female figure that has become our standard World image. She originates in Hebrew, Gnostic and Alchemical lore, and stands between heaven and earth as the Cosmic Mother of Souls, the Wife of God and our protector from the karmic forces we have set loose upon the Earth in our immaturity and ignorance.

Where the Empress energy secures and fertilizes our terrestrial lives, the goddess of The World invites us into cosmic citizenship — once we come to realize our soul’s potential for it. Just as the Chariot stands for success in achieving a separate Self, and Temperance represents achievement of mental and moral health, the World card announces the awakening of the soul’s Immortal Being, accomplished without the necessity of dying.

This card, like the Sun, is reputed to have no negative meaning no matter where or how it appears. If the Hermetic axiom is “Know Thyself”, this image represents what becomes known when the true nature of Self is followed to creative freedom and its ultimate realization.

Daily Horoscopes for April 10


General Daily Horoscope


The emotionally receptive Moon in watery Cancer conflicts with energetically assertive Mars in fiery Aries today, making it tough to be kind to others if our actions don’t also further our individual goals. We want to feel connected to the supportive matrix of our family, yet we may react too quickly out of fear when the Moon opposes powerful Pluto and squares authoritative Saturn. However, we can all benefit from learning a bit about patience.


Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Don’t mistakenly think that you cannot be strong and capable if you are also vulnerable enough to feel someone else’s pain. You may incorrectly believe that you have to find a solution right away, while actually avoiding the problem, itself. An alternate approach, however, is to open your heart and experience the dilemma without trying to fix it. Today, the smartest thing you can do is to listen closely and acknowledge another person’s feelings.



Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

A close friend might bug you so much today that it feels as if he or she is picking a fight with you. But don’t let a minor issue grow so important that it initiates an unnecessary argument and morphs into the turning point of your day. If you can successfully sidestep a confrontation now, you should be able to reap the fruits of your restraint when they ripen.



Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

It’s tricky for you to balance a very basic need for mental stimulation with today’s intense desire to just chill out. It’s not that your interest to be with others disappears now; it’s simply that you don’t want as many distractions as usual. If you are feeling overextended in any way, take time to recharge your batteries so you are up to the challenges of tomorrow.



Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

It’s as if an old friend has come for a visit now that the Moon has returned to your sign. She reminds you of the raw power of your emotions, yet also how isolated you can feel when you don’t express them. It may be difficult to communicate your experiences today, for your responsibilities may prevent you from sinking into a more emotional zone. Remember, you can remain silent while still actively staying in touch with your inner world.



Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You may feel hurt by someone you like today, making it hard to be honest. It’s difficult to respond to what’s happening, for you really don’t want to show your weakness. Nevertheless, your vulnerability can indicate your true strength as it takes extra courage now to act on your gut instincts, even if they seem to be out of step with the circumstances of your life.



Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Being responsive today to someone you work with can prove to be an enriching experience, but you’ll need to get over your insecurity about the possibility of being rejected. Sharing your feelings with your friends and associates can set you up for disappointment if others don’t react as expected. Nevertheless, you’ll never know what might have happened if you don’t take the risk. Be willing to go to the edge without going over it.



Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You might attempt to hide from the public eye today, yet you are needed by others in a way that could focus the attention directly on you. Oddly enough, it’s not that you want to remain unseen; it’s just that you feel awkward in the spotlight. Balance is one of your recurring issues; seek a comfortable place between being a star and remaining a complete unknown.



Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You are able to see your distant goals quite clearly, but still may be at a temporary loss as to how you can safely reach your destination. Unfortunately, it seems as if there are no direct routes that lead to where you want to go now. Fortunately, you can draw on a very deep well of persistence. Your non-judgmental acceptance of those you love, combined with your willingness to wait for the right moment, will likely clear the way for your success.


Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Although it’s always essential that you show up at work and do your job well, you are not completely satisfied with this option now. You want your creativity to overflow with passion. You hope to amaze others with what you can do. However, turning down the volume on your self-expression makes more sense today. It’s better to sustain your productivity throughout the day than to create a flash of excitement by pulling a rabbit out of a hat and then declaring that you’re done.



Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You may be confronted with unclear messages now, with others saying one thing and doing another. Thankfully, you’re encouraged by the loving support you are receiving, yet it feels as if something still isn’t quite right. The unspoken judgment is that you’re not doing enough, even if you have no idea of what else you could do. Don’t let self-doubt creep into your life; motivate yourself by focusing on the positive feedback you are given today, instead.



Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You are highly sensitive to what your closest friends want today, enabling you to take on tasks before they are even assigned to you. Unfortunately, you could also harbor resentment toward anyone who isn’t willing to give you straightforward direction. You might not mind the extra work, but feel frustrated about the lack of acknowledgment and appreciation. But, instead of keeping your feelings quiet, talk to someone who is involved before your unhappiness gets the best of you.



Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You may feel more alive today, rejuvenated by the tidal Cancer Moon as she refreshes your pools of emotion. If you are trying to recover from a recent schedule overload, establish new boundaries while you still can. You won’t have to give up any power, nor must you defend your right to remain silent. Quietly basking in the delicious healing waters of your own compassion is sufficient for now.
