New Moon in Sagittarius Reading

With the end of Mercury Retrograde, we are ushered into the final moon cycle of 2018. This is an ideal time to not only reflect over the year but to look towards new possibilities with the coming new year. This new moon is in Sagittarius, calling us to take our chances as we venture out into the new and unknown.

With spiritual guidance, I ask the cards four significant questions to assist us as we progress through the month: 1. What are we leaving behind?, 2. What is the lesson from the past cycle?, What are we embracing with this new moon?, and 4. How do we go about embracing this?

What are we leaving behind?

The Prince of Swords reversed, in alignment with the Mercury retrograde’s end, we are learning to communicate more clearly and fairly. We are being to understand how and why we should think before we speak so that we may get our points across effectively. We may also be learning how to accept the messages give to us even when they do not arrive in a way that is easy for us to swallow. We have shed some of that weakness and are growing stronger mentally and emotionally.

What is the lesson from the past?

The Hanged Man reminds us that we are not in control of everything, as much as we want to be. We have learned or are learning to let things go and trust that all will work out as it should. This is a sacrifice for some of us as we often attempt to interfere for what we consider to be the greater good. However, our efforts to fall back will be rewarded with more peace in our lives. We should take notice of this sacrifice and find that it is actually a gift.

What should we be embracing with the new moon?

Queen of Wands reversed wants us to be little bit selfish in terms of satiating our desire for exploration, teaching and new ways of thinking. The darkness of new moons represent our inner shadows that can be perceived poorly or even used for less than productive matters but there is another side to this. Our shadows are still a part of who we are and embracing is the only way we can understand it and use it for our betterment. There is nothing wrong with being selfish for the right reasons. Set your goals in place to reach your dreams! It’s okay to even be a little sassy when it comes to putting your foot down about what you really want in life. Self-expression is important but be careful not to misdirect moodiness or become overly arrogant.

How do we go about embracing this?

Eight of Wands suggest that we should just go for it! We know what we want and if we’ve been working hard for it, we will start to see positive changes pretty quickly. Authenticity is key while moving forward but we mustn’t forget that consequences accompany our rawness. However, as long as our actions are aligned with our goals, like the archer should draw our bow and shoot our shot!

Taurus Full Moon & Venus-Uranus Opposition Reading October 2018

I am usually pretty introspective already but the current energy in the air is calling me to take a look at who I am and what I desire in terms in interrelations. Taurus moon makes it a great time to get grounded and centered. This make take a lot of discipline as our stubbornness may get in the way, however, our stubbornness may be exactly the thing to help make us clear about what we want out of life.

Venus, the brightest star in the heavens, represents beauty, magnetism, money and love. Our interrelationships are affected by the positions of this planet as it amplifies and makes us take notice of our desires be they material or personal. In its current retrograde state, meaning that it appears to be orbiting backwards in relation to the surrounding bodies, we are being forced to take a step back and look at our lives from a new perspective – especially in the areas of romance and finance. Fortunately and unfortunately, this can mean a rise of impatience as we become more clear about what we want from our partners, ourselves and the world around us.

To top it off, Uranus is making its way in opposition to Venus. Uranus is the planet of independence, spiritual growth and eccentricity. It represents innovative progression and rebellion against the status quo. As opposing positions tend to mark a time of conflict for the sake of progress, Uranus is adding to our being pushed toward seeing our situations in a new light. Upheaval is often necessary for healing and forward movement and as full moons are a time for release, we should take note of what we can change in order to make steps towards our desired future.

Fathers’ Day Tarot Reading 2018

This entry is a couple of days behind the actual day we celebrate fathers in Western society but this reading is essentially timeless. It is and will remain relevant until we ascend beyond our limited ideas about men and fatherhood that have been shaped by painful experiences. We all make mistakes and many of us have had poor relationships with our fathers if any at all. As all reading are, this one is about healing and love.

Two-Card Spread: Chariot Reversed and Moon

The state of the father in our society is currently a uneasy one. Those who are struggling with the idea of patriarchy in their family and personal life are also lacking a sense of control and direction. Due to this spiritual disconnect, instead of a victory – which an upright Chariot would represent- there is aggression and/or stagnation where there could be joy and progression.

The Moon refers to the subconscious, the psychological imprints of our past that affect our present. Maybe a poor experience with the patriarchs in the family or slacking as a standup patriarch due to psychological barriers. Until those thoughts and feelings are unveiled and handled on a deep and spiritual level, the condition of the family will not heal properly. There will only be continued aggression and shallow connection.

Namaste and blessed be.
