Moon in Aries – High Priestess in the Emperor’s Clothing

High Priestess dressed as the Emperor

The Moon moves into Aries today and will stay there until Thursday.

Translating this transit into Tarot cards, it would be like the High Priestess is wearing the Emperor’s clothing. She’s in scarlet and armor and is ready for battle.

The Moon in Aries, or High Priestess in the clothing of the Emperor, is a time of intensified emotions. You might feel an increased desire to shape your own world.

Rather than sitting back in stillness, this transit encourages the loosening of emotional restrictions and the conscious expression of enthusiasm and/or passion.

It might be uncomfortable at first, but allow yourself to speak out loud. Take steps forward to let people know what you know and what you love.

Try to remain objective and open-minded while acting with determination and direction. It might sound impossible, but you can do both if you try.

There’s no need to be shy – express yourself and let everyone see you smile.

You have confidence now and boundaries no longer pen you in.  Creativity carries you forward as if in a dream.

Focus your imagination and you can manifest what you will.  Be open, free and alive.

Psychic Readings In Manchester, NJ

July 6th, 2015 § 0 comments § permalink

Psychic readings were one of the many events scheduled last month by the Township of Manchester, New Jersey for their 150th Anniversary Celebration. As it turned out though, there was a long-standing law on the books making psychic readings on public lands illegal in Manchester.

Under the heading Commercial Uses, Manchester Ordinance 288 section 18C says,

No person shall tell fortunes, play at games of chance, or use any gambling device within a township park or public lands except as provided by special permission of the Mayor or his designee.

Since they were under a time constraint, but didn’t want to break the law, Council decided that at least for their special event, the law would be suspended and psychic readings would be available at the 150th Anniversary Celebration.

According to Micromediapubs.com, Council President Brendan Weiner said that the Township intends to fully amend the ordinance in the near future.

Get down to work. Nothing exciting going on, except maybe the chance to get more done than you thought you would.

Follow the template and don’t worry about being particularly innovative today. It’s probably more important to just get it done.

To motivate yourself try remembering that what you’re working on now is setting you up for your future. Put in the effort and it’ll ultimately pay off.

Moon in Pisces – High Priestess in the Moon’s Clothing

High Priestess dressed in the moon's clothing

The Moon moves into Pisces today and stays there until Tuesday.

Described in Tarot cards, this transit would be like the High Priestess is dressed as the Moon. She’s lost her material body and has disappeared into the celestial body that usually rests at her feet.

The Moon in Pisces, or High Priestess dressed as the Moon, is a time of increased perception, ill-defined understanding and what might be described as night vision.

During this time you could find your dreams feel more real than your daylight hours and what’s not said is louder than what is.

Fears might grow like a boogieman under the bed, but if you just take a peek, they’re as likely to be dust bunnies as demons or ghosts.

Be still, aware and fearless. It might be dark outside, but if there was ever a time you can navigate the unknown, this is it. Listen, breathe, flow.

#21 The World from Georgie's Tarot

#21 – The Universe

Dance and enjoy!  You deserve to celebrate after a long journey.  A phase in your life is coming to a close – it’s big but not scary.

This is a good day to reflect on what’s been happening in your life over the last long while.  Where were your successes and what would you rather leave behind?  How did all the little stories turn into a whole big narrative?

Review, laugh and maybe even cry, but don’t carry old burdens with you going forward.  Be free and open and willing to be vulnerable.  You’ve done what you can.  It’s time now to simply rejoice in your own little slice of the universe.  You’ll have plenty of time to plan your next step tomorrow.

A Fool’s Paradise

July 4th, 2015 § 0 comments § permalink

The picture below (which I found at VictorianWeb.org) is by Edmund J. Sullivan. It’s an illustration he did for the 1836 publication of Thomas Carlyle’s novel Sartor Resartus: The Life and Opinions of Herr Teufelsdroch.

The drawing is called A Fool’s Paradise, and when I saw it, I was struck by the number of Tarot characters pictured in it. Not only is the Fool represented (as both a Fool and an Emperor), there’s also the Magician, the Empress, the Hierophant, and the Hermit. Wow!

The only character in this picture who’s not overtly Tarot-oriented is the guy on the left taking notes. I’m guessing that he’s meant to be Herr Teufelsdroch himself, but to keep with the Tarot theme, I’m going to name him the King of Swords, a man of fine words and intellect able to explain what all the others in the picture might be doing.

We just had this Page last week, but he’s back! …

Sweetness abounds when the Page of Cups is around.  This is a great day to communicate emotions – enthusiastically and without censor, especially to those you love.

There’s a lightness in the air and the sense that something new could be starting.  And it just might be.

It’s good to remember though, that there’s no need for you to commit to anything serious right now.  It’s still the time of freshness and beginnings.  Becoming heavy now would only dampen what’s still just growing.

Express yourself and let your imagination wander.

Moon in Aquarius – High Priestess in the Star’s Clothing

High Priestess in Star's Clothing

The Moon moves into Aquarius today and stays there until Sunday.

Described in Tarot cards, this transit would be like the High Priestess is dressed as the Star. In other words, her robes are gone and she’s naked as the bird in the tree behind her.

The Moon in Aquarius, or High Priestess in the Star’s clothing, can sometimes be emotionally stressful. Hope may be in the air, but it’s a cautious hope.

Emotionally you feel like sharing, bubbling over with dreams for the future. But your mind keeps getting in the way, reminding you that dreams can sometimes be nightmares.

Try not to spend what could be a nice time double guessing yourself or listing off all the reasons things could go wrong. They might. But they probably won’t.

Be real, but not a wet blanket. Rather than smothering your dreams, direct them with intelligence.

It’s a day to dissolve the fog and start looking at things with fresh and honest eyes.  With a commitment to clarity, new ideas and a new sense of authority will be close on the horizon.

Take things in hand and energetically start slicing through any fuzziness you’ve not wanted to look past till now.  Are you happy with what you’re seeing?  If yes – go forward with strength.  If not, figure out what you actually want, re-direct yourself towards it and go forward with strength.

In either case, you need to see things for what they really are before you can intelligently decide what your next step might be.   This is no time to fool yourself.   It’s a time to take charge, be realistic and be strong.
