Faces of the Moon - Mike Daisey@The Public Theater NYC

This show looks fantastic!

Mike Daisey is performing a 29-monologue series at the Public Theater in New York City called All the Faces of the Moon.

He’ll be telling a story of the secret (and magical) history of the City over the course of one lunar month starting on the new moon, September 5th.

Each monologue has a Tarot themed title. Examples include She’s The High Priestess to You, Jack, Temperance Under the Gun, and Our Justice Runs on a Tilted Table.

Check out the Public Theatre website to see the full schedule.

And if you’re not in New York City, don’t be sad. They’ll be podcasting each night’s performance. You can watch live, or later.

I can’t wait!

This is a day for looking forward.  You’ve got some time and you’re in a good position to look around and see what you want to do next.  The world is literally in your hands and it’s up to you to decide the next move.

What is it that makes you feel most in control of your domain?  What is it that makes you feel you’re really doing what you’re supposed to be doing?

Don’t rush this – it takes some serious consideration.  Use this time to start getting a grip on your destiny.  You’re in charge of this one.  Don’t be afraid to take control.  Your option is to let someone else.

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 Tuesday.

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.

Clear rational thinking is at the fore today.  Is there something you need to take control of?  Have you been wavering and wishy-washy lately?  Stop procrastinating.

Focus, take charge and get it done.   Have the courage to be clear and rational.  Cut through the fog and let logic rule the day.

You know who you are, you know what you want and you’re sure you deserve it.   Go to it.  But beware of dictating what’s best for those around you.

You might know how to take care of yourself, but let others take care of their own lives, their own way.

Ruuuun!!

August 24th, 2013 § 0 comments § permalink

Take a look at the video below from BingTangHuLuer. It’s a short animation called Ruuuun!! created by 100 artists all collaborating on a single story.

Like different Tarot artists interpreting a single card, the animators expressed their segments from wildly varying perspectives and the results are incredible.

I especially like the section where three characters sit around a table.

In some cases they’re playing cards (I like to believe that they’re Tarot cards), and in at least one instance there’s definitely a psychic reading going on.

The film itself is just about 2 minutes long. The rest of the video shows stills from each artist. It’s well worth watching through end.

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.

Mercury in Virgo – Magician Dressed in the Hermit's Clothing

Magician Dressed as the Hermit - Mercury in Virgo

Magician as Hermit

After a return visit to Leo during the retrograde, Mercury moves back into Virgo today, and stays there until September 9th.

Through the eyes of the Tarot, this transit is like the Magician is wearing the Hermit’s clothes. He’s left his garden and is trekking through the snow.

Mercury in Virgo, or the Magician wearing the Hermit’s clothes, is a time of intense internal clarity. You know what you know, and can see it with fresh eyes.

It’s a good time to clear out stale old perspectives. Shine light on your inner wisdom and don’t be afraid to let others know what you’ve found.

There’s a tension now between the old and the new. Use it to dig through past ideas and experiences. Not for nostalgia’s sake, but in order to figure out what’s worthy enough to revitalize, and what might as well be discarded.

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

High Priestess dressed as the Emperor

High Priestess dressed as Emperor

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

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.

#2 – The High Priestess

This is a good day to give your spirit some serious attention.  Take a little time by yourself to think about what it is that you believe.  What do you think of the world and your place in it?  What ultimately gives your life meaning?

It’s also a good time right now to pay attention to the messages other people have been sending you.   Let yourself absorb the world around you without feeling the need to jump in right away and take action.  This is a better time to sit and receive than to act.

Observe, listen and think about what it is you’re doing.  Through reflection you’ll start to see all sides.  Through this wider perspective you’ll find the priorities and direction that can help you on your path.

Tarot on the Road

August 22nd, 2013 § 0 comments § permalink

Instead of reading in an office, at a coffee shop, or in her living room, Tarot reader Erin Smith has taken the cards on the road in her very own Tarot Chariot.

Smith took an ordinary old delivery van and revamped it into a fabulous Tarot Truck. Or should we say – Tarotvan?

I love it!

In the video below from KLL Video Productions, you can see Smith talk about her magical vehicle and her philosophy on Tarot itself.

And visit her website, vardotarot.com to see more pictures of the truck.
