This Tarot Deck: Visconti-Sforza
General Meaning: What has traditionally been known as the Judgement card, sometimes entitled Resurrection, represents the great reunion that the ancients believed would happen once in every age. This was the time when souls are harvested and taken Home to their place of origin, outside the solar system. Then the World is seeded with a batch of new souls and the process starts over.
From a modern point of view, this great reunion — which includes every personality that you have ever been and every soul that you have done deep work with — reunites to consciously complete the process. In a way, we symbolically celebrate this returning to center every year on our birthday.
In personal terms, the Judgment cards points to freedom from inner conflicts, and so clear a channel, that the buried talents and gifts of past incarnations can come through an individual in this lifetime. This card counsels you to trust the process of opening yourself, because what emerges is of consistently high quality. You can effortlessly manifest as a multi-dimensional being, and assist in evoking that response from others.
Wednesday, June 27
The love planet’s return to forward motion after six weeks in reverse should get relationships moving ahead again. Spicing up an existing partnership with new attitudes and activities rediscovers lost passion. Singles seeking companions may finally be ready to try out a different look or an unfamiliar social activity that increases chances for making connections.

Invocation to the God of Walls and Ditches
O great Cheng-Huang,
God of Walls and Ditches,
Lord of Boundaries,
Keeper of the public peace,
We all too often forget that we are not alone
In this world; that each community
Has edges that brush against each other.
Remind us to keep those edges neat and courteous
And our walls and ditches well maintained
Lest floods and creatures stray
Where they are not wanted.
Remind us that courtesy is no mere luxury,
But can be the coin with which one pays those
Who have no choice but to be reminded of your presence.
May you look favorably upon our House!
May your Horse-head Demon and Ox-head Demon
Find nothing to anger them within our domain!
May your watchmen, Mr. Black and Mr. White,
Remind us that sometimes one must
Pay attention to what it black and white,
And not always be distracted by the many shades of grey.
In your honor we toil today,
Lord of Boundaries,
That our own walls shall keep in what should not be seen
And keep out all that may harm us.
(There is no song or chant today; all go straight to their work. Singing and chanting may be done while working, however, and the work need not be done in a solitary fashion.)
