This week on Fortune's Wheelhouse, we've arrived at the auspicious 6 of Pentacles of Disks. Success is within reach! Here the Moon, exalted in the sign of Taurus, shines her kindest light. The steady earthen bull plows the fertile fields; all herds thrive, all crops bear fruit. Outer and inner mysteries reconcile, the earth and heaven smile at each other, and a generous spirit prevails.
In our discussion we consider: the point of harmony between worry and failure, the dynamic stability of the Bull, Aldebaran the royal watcher of the East, Mithras the lord of contracts, the Pleiades and Hyades, fertilization and potency, the Horae and the ripe moment, Beltane, sex decan, fires lit by friction, the May bush, and the May pole, the Hierophant and the High Priestess, igni natura renovatur integra, Archangel Raphael the healer, Archdemon Belphegon and dangerous innovations, the greater ritual of the hexagram, the mystic rose and holy rood, giving and restraining hands of Chesed and Geburah, the pomegranate as apple of Eden, and the alchemical wedding.
The 6 of Pentacles or Disks is associated with the Rosy Cross, a symbol shared by Rosicrucians, Freemasons, and the Golden Dawn. Roses are also associated with the goddess Venus, who rules over Taurus, the sign of fixed earth, as well as the art of perfumery. Therefore, this week's giveaway is a bottle of my perfume for Taurus, which is called Roses & Stones. Imagine yourself on a carved stone bench in a garden full of old roses, whose captivating scent drifts through the cool air...long may you linger in this paradise! like Ferdinand the Bull, sniffing the flowers, in perfect peace.
