With the 2 of Pentacles or Disks, we engage with the physical world, and the reality of trying to make our bodies, our works, our things bend to our will. First decan of the Saturn-ruled, Capricorn line-up, the 2 of Disks answers to Jupiter. The Greater Malefic and the Greater Benefic duke it out in this card, and their struggle moves mountains.Read More

In this week's episode of Fortune's Wheelhouse, we end the suit of Swords with a rush of wind and the whirling blade belonging to the Page or Princess of Swords. The earthy part of air, she freely inscribes her will on the astral plane. With the power of the Gorgon's head, she concretizes choices, turning options into fact. Lotus of the palace of air, she floats and dances easterly - and woe unto anyone who tries to deprive her of her freedom!Read More
