Moon in Virgo – High Priestess in the Hermit’s Clothing

The High Priestess wearing the Hermit's clothing

The Moon moves into Virgo today and will be there until Thursday.

From a Tarot perspective, you might think of this transit as the High Priestess wearing the Hermit’s clothes. She’s putting on her cowl.

The Moon in Virgo, or High Priestess in the Hermit’s clothing, is a time for practical, quiet reflection. Seeking the advice of an expert, and listening carefully to what they have to say could be worthwhile.

Or maybe someone will be asking you for your advice.

Your home is more important now than the outside world. Start thinking how to make it more practical. You might not be ready to do the work just yet, but this is a great time to plan.

Emotionally, it’s a time of calm. Perfect for listening and reflecting rather than acting out in passion. Take your time. There’s no rush.

Study, organization, contemplation, solitude, emotional self-reflection. Don’t be afraid to be alone right now. There’s lot’s to do on your own.

Tarot Card of the Day – 1/26/16

#4 The Emperor from Georgie's Tarot

#4 The Emperor

Tuesday, January 26, 2016
#4 – The Emperor

You can expect a day of fiery energy and powerful determination.  In whatever you do today, you’re encouraged to do it with strength and creativity – in fact it would be hard not to.  Within your domain you’re the one in charge, so manifest your will.

What have you been wanting to create in your world?  Start making it really happen!

While you’re encouraged to take your power and run with it, there is a challenge associated with the Emperor.  Remember – not everyone might want to do things your way.  Everyone thinks they’re right.

Sometimes you have to give a little.  If you don’t, don’t be surprised if other people start rearing their own Emperor energy and you’re smack dab in the middle of a fight.

Masculine energy is strongly indicated with the Emperor card and issues surrounding males, especially those in authority are likely during this time.  Stay strong and true and you won’t go wrong.

Confidence and The Fool

January 25th, 2016 § 0 comments § permalink

#0 The Fool - Rider Waite Smith Tarot

While watching this School of Life video called Confidence, I couldn’t help but think of Tarot’s Fool.

His attitude is one of supreme confidence, not because he knows it all, or has solutions for everything that might come up, but because he’s willing to try things out, willing to take that leap with the faith that he’ll be okay, whatever happens next.

The Fool doesn’t wait around to be sure that every last detail is in place before taking the next step. If he waits for perfection, he might never move. And though things might not work out exactly as planned, the Fool knows for sure that if he doesn’t get moving, there’s not much chance he’ll get any further than he already is.

So take a look at Confidence, then get out there and try making a Fool’s leap of your own. And if for some reason you take a spill, just do what the Fool would do … get up, dust yourself off, and have the confidence to try again.

#17 – The Star

Optimism and rejuvenation are the themes for the day.  Active generosity and compassion come easy so don’t hold back.  Give and you will receive.

Embrace the Universe’s capacity to provide you with what you need when you need it most.  That’s what miracles are and the Star is the goddess of miracles.

If things have been tough lately, now’s a time when you can finally lean back and take a bit of a break.  Surround yourself with as much beauty as you can.  It will help to replenish your soul.

Art, music, and the glory of the night sky are all worthy subjects of meditation.  Let them fill you with the inspiration you need for the next leg of your journey.

#11 Strength from Georgie's Tarot

#11 – Strength

Learn to direct your inner wildness during this period of fiery intensity and your personal power is likely to grow.  Innocence and purity work together to balance your passion with wisdom.

Explore ways to act assertively but without aggression.  The gentle touch might go a lot further than a loud voice or an impetuous rage.

It’s a very creative time and you’re encouraged to allow yourself room to flourish.  Don’t be shy.  This is the moment to take action and move forward with plans you may have held off on until now.

Moon in Leo – High Priestess in Strength’s Clothing

The High Priestess in Strength's Clothing

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

Translated into Tarot cards, this transit would be like the High Priestess is wearing Strength’s clothing. She’s thrown off her heavy cape and is spending some time outside with her lion.

The Moon in Leo, or High Priestess in Strength’s clothing is potentially a time of emotional power. Something beautiful that’s usually under wraps can finally be revealed.

The silence is broken. Quiet wisdom and passion can be united. During this time, it might be difficult to keep your ideas to yourself. But why should you?

Try finding an outlet for plans you’ve been sitting on? This is an opportunity to shine if you’re not over-burdened by self-consciousness.

It might feel a little uncomfortable at first, but letting your wilder side out right now could be positive. The sun isn’t always shining. Take advantage of it when it does.

Venus in Capricorn – Empress Dressed in the Devil’s Clothing

Venus in Capricorn, the Empress in the Devil's Clothing

Empress as Devil

Venus is moving into Capricorn and will stay there until February 17th.

From a Tarot perspective, this transit would be like the Empress is dressed in the Devil’s clothing. Hairy and winged, she’s trying out a darker look.

Venus in Capricorn, or the Empress in the Devil’s clothing is a time of creative intensity and physical manifestation.

Focus on getting things done and making them real, but do so with compassion for yourself and others.

Pushing through a task without connecting to it on an emotional level, or with an eye to the beautiful, will only lessen the value of what you create.

Celebrate and love with passion, but try not to chain yourself to anything for too long.

4 of Cups

Today it might seem like you’ve got it all, and yet there’s still something missing.  Emotionally, you’ve got plenty of support.  People around you love you and you love them back.  Despite it all though, there’s a nagging feeling that it’s just not enough.

Perhaps you’re fantasizing about a new love, a new friend, or at a new spark to make what you’ve already got even more special.

Examine these feelings carefully and determine what it is that leaves you slightly unsatisfied.  Are you being reasonable – or a bit of a brat.  Pay attention to what you’ve got and don’t forget to give thanks.

At the same time – if there is something missing, it’s missing and there’s no getting around it.  Meditate on what it is that leaves you wanting more and figure out whether or not it’s something you should pursue.

Remember though, what you wish for might just appear out of thin air – make sure you really want it?

If you’ve been trying to practice mindfulness but are having some trouble, you might want to take a look at the Big Think video below with Rasmus Hougaard.

In it, he describes some of the roadblocks people face when trying to meditate, while explaining that in order to succeed, it’s really a matter of keeping it simple.
