Moon in Gemini – High Priestess Dressed as the Lovers' Angel

High Priestess as the Lovers’ Angel

The Moon moves into Gemini today and will stay there until Saturday.

From a Tarot perspective, this transit would be like the High Priestess is dressed as the Lovers’ Angel. She floats above the naked couple, blessing their sacred union.

The Moon in Gemini, or High Priestess dressed as the Lovers’ angel, can be an emotionally confusing time, one where internal conflicts arise in order to be reconciled.

But it can also be a time of clarity, honest communication and almost intuitive understanding about yourself and those around you.

Quiet faith teams up with commitment and the Angels approve of the whole thing.

Try to keep your emotions in line with your reason. Going too far either way could disturb a really nice balance.

Queen of Cups from Georgie's Tarot

Queen of Cups

The energy today is full of nurturance and love.  Let yourself give and receive.  Share your feelings, your dreams and what it is that makes you human.  Let your imagination run away with you (while holding on to reality if you can).

The Queen of Cups loves romance and laughter and beauty in all its forms.  Take a leap into your emotional depths.  Don’t be afraid, you won’t stay under too long.  This Queen understands emotional limits – how to push them and how to pull them back gently without hurting anyone’s feelings.

Today would be a great day to enjoy the company of loved ones. Or call or write them – one way or another, be sure they know you care.

A Dancing Saturn

#21 The World from the Smith Waite Tarot

In the Golden Dawn system of Tarot/Astrology, the World card is associated with Saturn.

At least on a superficial level, such an association always seemed a little odd to me.

Though of course I see that both the planet and the card have rings circling a central figure, there’s a definite feeling of celebration in the World card that seems missing in Saturn’s astrological reputation as a task-master.

Seeing the video below called Around Saturn by Fabio Di Donato though, gave me a whole new way of looking at the planet.

Just as the lady in the World is always dancing, if you look at Saturn from the right perspective, it’s always dancing too!

You’ve worked hard for your keep, with discipline and perseverance.  Physically, some important goals are finally being achieved. 

You’re moving towards a place where you feel more at ease, towards a practical stability.   The fruits of your labour can now be recognized and finally enjoyed.

Take some time today to quietly congratulate yourself. You’ve worked hard and deserve what you’ve received.  Though the road hasn’t always been easy, developing patience and inner strength will prove well worth it.

Moon in Taurus – High Priestess in the Hierophant's Clothing

The High Priestess dressed as the Hierophant

High Priestess in Hierophant’s Clothes

The Moon moves into Taurus today and stays there until Wednesday.

If you look at this transit through the eyes of the Tarot, it would be like the High Priestess is dressed as the Hierophant. She’s sitting before two acolytes and sharing the secrets she usually guards.

The Moon in Taurus, or High Priestess in the Hierophant’s clothes, is a time of spiritual and emotional certitude.

There’s a sense that the truth can be explained, understood and incorporated into daily life. Rules can and should be followed.

Instead of trying to force others to recognize what you know to be certain, try using this time to simply share your emotional, intellectual and spiritual perceptions.

Celebrate the diversity of spirit in our world, while figuring out for yourself what rules, spiritual or otherwise, work best for you.

Emotional renewal is the name of the game today.  A new way of feeling about something and/or somebody is about to emerge.  Perhaps you’re feeling it already – it’s like that first hint of spring or when a magnolia tree finally blossoms after a long cold winter.

Joy and hope are in the air and accessible to you.  Throw away any gloom you’ve been dragging around and wake up to the inspiration of postive emotions.  There’s a sense that anything can happen and it’s probably going to be good. Be receptive to the love that’s around you and give it back in kind.

Fire! – a tribute to Niki de Saint Phalle

The Tarot inspired artist Niki de Saint Phalle to create the fabulous Tarot Garden, and her garden (as well as her life) inspired Catherine Cabeen to create the dance piece Fire!

The video below is the full show as performed at On the Boards in Seattle last January.

The reckoning’s done and it’s finally time to dole out the rewards.  Have you done your fair share?  Are you ready to accept what’s due?

Success is coming to those who have done what they can to manifest their goals.  It may seem like manna from heaven but look again – it’s more likely compensation for a job well done.

And don’t forget to thank those who have been helping you. We’re never alone in either our successes or our failures.

The Knight, the Hermit, and the World

July 27th, 2013 § 0 comments § permalink

Here’s an adorable little film called The Heart of The Matter by Reuben Loane.

It’s about a man who makes a wish that his girlfriend will marry him, and in the process discovers what really makes the world go round.

Though it’s not a Tarot tale, I couldn’t help but see it as the Knight of Cups meeting the Hermit, and learning one of the World’s secrets – to share something precious will bring you infinite return.

(Oh, and also, that apparently, the earth spins with the help of a coin-operated machine run by an old man in the bottom of a well – who knew?)

#14 – Temperance

This is a great day to even things out. Balance and temperance are the energies surrounding you now. Can you bring your physical world into harmony with your emotional state?

Temperance is about that perfect mix, neither too much nor too little. It’s about becoming conscious of what you want to be both inside and out, and courageous enough to try.

You are responsible for any healing you might need. The first step is to acknowledge what might be out of balance and then start readjusting.

Sometimes it’s about finding a new way to meld your internal opposites; sometimes it’s about casting out what no longer works. In all cases though, it’s about being true to your self and connecting to the grander universe.

Try asking an angel for some help today. You might be surprised at the result.
