The Lovers, by Victoria Frances
Tarot Card of the Day: The Lovers
With the moon in Taurus and Venus in Gemini, we’ll have a heightened sensuality and a feeling of wanting to be close to someone. This is a time of curiosity and wonder when it comes to romantic relationships. Now is the time to explore anything that you’ve been curious about, especially when it relates to matters of the heart or sexuality.
The Lovers remind us to allow ourselves to appreciate and be open to love, tenderness, and sensuality.
Goddess of the Day: Bast
In Egyptian mythology, Bast is the goddess of sensuality, healing and is the protector of cats. If any cat were to die, it was her who brought them back to life, which is where the concept of them having nine lives originated.
The word passion originated from this goddess’ first form, Pasht. Bast was known to have three husbands, and she was also the lover of all gods and goddesses, so bisexuality was one of her traits. She enjoys pleasure in all its forms and she doesn’t care about what other people think.
Bast encourages us to live in the moment when it comes to romance and sensuality. On a day like today, call on Bast to help to enhance sexual relationships, sensuality, intimacy and affection.

Candle of the Day: Peach
With the new moon in Taurus today, this is a good time for setting personal goals and enjoying life’s simple pleasures. You may find yourself wanting to slow down, relax and stopping to smell the roses. It’s a gentle, sensual, pleasing time. Today will be a day to explore and discover what truly makes us feel happy and fulfilled. Now is a good time to start a new long-term relationship, apply for a loan, decorate your home and create music. On the down side, we might find ourselves feeling a bit stubborn and materialistic.
Light a peach candle today to increase the softness and gentleness and ward off that stubbornness. Lighting peach on a waxing moon also increases kindness and allows for forgiveness towards others.
Though you feel some confidence today, a part of you will feel hesitant when it comes to doing things that you know must be handled. Use moderation today in everything you do, whether its simple or not. It’s a day of merging, experimenting and adjusting.
Sometimes in order to take on something, you feel like you have to give up something else but you don’t have to always do that. The Temperance card encourages you to blend all these elements together to create one beautiful whole even if the elements seem incompatible. Sometimes a blending of opposites creates a grand design.
