Full moon Pisces September 2014 astrology

I’m choosing the lovers tarot card as the full potential for this Pisces full moon :)

lovers tarot meaning The full moon in Pisces energies have already started to pick up pace and it’s only two days away. Pisces (water) is emotional sensitive and deep and this moon will shine light on our deeper emotions and sensitivities.

If we think back to December 2012 (as we moved from the age of Pisces into Aquarius) and the eclipses of earlier this year and last, we will get an idea of what will arise.

Any (unresolved) past wounds will be raised for healing. With the moon also conjunct Chiron (the wounded healer) there will be no avoiding the opportunity to face and move on from the unconscious (made conscious) issues or relationship patterns and contentions that are deep seated.

Fortunately it is the final opportunity to heal these sufferings and it does not have to be heavy or painful as Chiron is focused on the healing and the letting go more so than the pain.This often means though that people/places and things must leave our life once and for all.

It is a sensitive and emotional time but those who have done the hard work since 2012 will find this moon intense- albeit containing emotive rewards and riches- as the final tweaking of past inner and external conflicts/patterns/behaviours are released for greater liberty.

LOVE

LOVE

The Pisces energies give potential for meaningful, rich love and deeper inner happiness if we manage to allow ourselves to stand up and in any conflict, hidden agendas and/or subconscious risings that may (and they will) present themselves at this time.

The key as always is to stay grounded (the Sun in Virgo helps) and to be grateful for whatever opportunities present themselves and to allow our emotions to be truly felt and seen so we can progress towards the intended beauty of a richer more meaningful life and love..

Pisces is all about the heart – go toward what makes your heart sing and the shifts will be felt deep within and all around you as the next few months unfold.

Piscean energy is associated with forgiveness and compassion. Forgiveness is about release. Let go of mind responsibility around that which you cannot change, let go of codependency, pain, past hurts, grudges. Release the desire to change a situation or person.

The Piscean forgiveness is radical compassion, forgiveness of what is and being able to move away from the suffering, making right action. Pisces being deep and inner can often mean we do this quietly or on an inner capacity, allowing the external to dissolve organically.

Grief and suffering are different. In grieving we allow our emotions to present themselves, to undergo transformation. We empower ourselves and make changes both inner and outer. When we suffer we obstruct our power, we allow for situations, people to keep us stuck. Suffering implies not accepting things as they are. The forgiveness and compassion indicative of Piscean energy allows this process to be gentler and in alignment with truth.

Pisces is also deeply seated in mysticism and magic. Pay attention to dreams and intuition. Make good use of traditional healing methods such as meditation and ritual and you will be guided gently through this higher consciousness process with a direct path to peace, love and union.

As Pisces is associated with water, I suggest a water ritual to heal, relax and enjoy the process of this potentially lovely revealing and sensitive full moon:

Run a bath and add sea salts or Epson salts.. Himalayan salts are bestfull moon Pisces love ritual
Light an incense stick (Frankincense or rose or both are best)
Light candles (Red and black are best),

If you can get some red roses (add these to the bath) or gather some rosemary, marigold or other flowers or herbs that are available to you

As the bath runs write your wishes on a piece of paper – this should help you create an intention – (eg I intend to be more open to receiving love or I Intend to accept my relationship as it is and move towards a more loving one or I intend to create positive action towards a happier inner state…)

Once in the bath sit still for a minute and focus on breathing into your heart centre. deep breaths in and deep breaths out. Take a moment to witness thoughts that are arising but continue to go back into your heart centre. As your mind settles take a moment to focus on the candle light. Read out your wishes and intention no less than five times but as many as it takes till you feel it at your core. Put the paper aside and sustain the positive vibration.
Begin to pour water over your head, over your crown Chakra and repeat five time:
“Diana of the moon
I wash away the sorrows and pain
I release all that does not serve me
I reach inner
I feel the love that is inside me
I now wash away the past
I bring forward my love
I am ready to walk towards my hearts song
Diana of the moon
I am love
I am free to be open, loving and alive
So mote it be”

Sit still for a moment and allow the feeling of freedom to embrace your being.
Let the candles burn out.
As you empty the bath water imagine all the negative energies and suffering leave …
If you have used rose petal or other gather them and spread them in a garden :)

The Six of Swords

“The past can’t hurt you anymore, not unless you let it.”  – Allan Moore

Six of swords tarotWe all hear about moving on, letting go and bringing in the light. The Six of swords upholds all of these concepts as well as acknowledging the pain involved with the process. But as the above saying by Allan Moore indicates, there is a smoother happier passage ahead.

We see a woman and her child surrounded by six swords, heading somewhere in a boat – the water behind her is choppy and unsafe but the water afar is smooth and alive with life. Her appearance is mournful, depicting she is sad to be moving away from where-ever she has come. However, the clear waters ahead show that she is making the right choice and that although her present situation is sad and regretful – the further she moves away the happier she will be.

The boat signifies the finality of the situation. The woman and the child are not looking back – they know they must leave – the six of swords represents the strength of mind of the passenger on the boat – the knowing that the past must end – the person rowing them away signifies she will be supported and safe.

The six of swords in a love relation indicates a recent time of sorrow , having to leave and needing to grieve. The situation was beyond repair and the only alternative was to remove yourself from it.. The swords in front of us shows that we may have fought hard with our logic and reason in order to accept this loss as fate. It shows that the pain is raw, fresh and we must take this time to recover from the trauma.

love tarotAlthough hearing this does not shift the heartache – this will have to be an organic process of grief and healing –  the toughest times are behind us. We are now moving away from relationship that has caused us sorrow. We may be held back by our own intellect, but will soon learn through the healing process that we deserve to be free and happy. This card is reminding us to focus on the end goal – happiness and this will be achieved by self empowerment.

If we have just met someone new it can be advising that the other person will cause us much sorrow and is a forewarning to travel away from it before it causes us hurt – It could also be advising that the other person is still in a period of sorrow and may not be available to you  – Either way it is warning to stay clear from the situation.

In business, goals and projects, it may be advising that a loss is imminent – you can walk away – you must walk away. But, it also adheres to the old adage that ‘when one door closes another one opens’. Because of the emotional attachment in this card the situation may be deeply important to you and you will find difficulty in letting it go.  Try to stay focused on the possibilities of the future – remember you have survived this far and you still have all the resources to rebuild a vocation, financial security or achieve goals. This was not the right path for you. The path ahead is much more abundant on a heart level – it will be smoother and less stressful.

5 of swords tarotSpiritually you are being reminded that grief has a process – it raises deeper healing and gives us choices and empowers us. Our ego minds can hold on to the past as long and only as long as we allow it to. Through practicing self awareness in grief we are able to grow and heal faster than sustaining a level of victim mentality. It is an opportunity to dissolve the past both externally and internally. This card says there is a long journey in front of you but that if you accept and act you can make powerful changes in your emotional, mental and spiritual lives.

This card wants you to see your past sorrows for what they are – it is showing you that the murky or rough waters of the past are no longer a necessary path. You can find the support and healing towards the deeper softer self but you must leave the past to do so.

Once the external events have been removed you can begin the process. You are being called to accepting the  idea that sorrow can stay or leave – that yes sorrow is a part of life but how we manage it is up to us. Becoming strong in your values, creating boundaries and adhering to them. Embodying them , moving through the grief by continually letting go.

Sacrificing the mind’s ego will always bring greater peace. To accept a situation we must remove the activity of the minds ego – we then find peace – this may take a while – when the peace enters us we can then receive right messages from the mind – heart messages – Ahisma (messages that are congruent with the peace we are achieving by sacrificing the mind). These messages will lead us towards right action.

five of swordsTherefore-  sacrifice the ego – peace occurs – right action becomes organic. We can do this by seeking truth in philosophy, traditions, journalling, meditation, yoga, walking, drawing, painting, gardening, communing with nature, seeking guidance from a healer/teacher/therapist, being of service to others.

Peace will always lead us towards right action.

The six of swords is a difficult card to accept in life, love and business but it does have within it a beautiful opportunity to move towards more fulfilling, prosperous and loving people and situations and a deeper sense of self worth.

Accept – sacrifice ego – create right action :)

Last night in my meditations a spirit guide spoke these words to me “You will find love on the other side of your ego” and there in lay the Temperance card.

Temperance tarot card meaningThe Temperance card may seem all light and fluffy but it holds within itself a deep importance and substance that is integral to life energy and love relationships – peace and calm.

We see an angel with wings of feather, amid a lush pond, standing at the water’s edge, pouring water from one golden cup to another. The golden triangle on the chest of the white robes is an ancient symbol of healing. The stream of water between the two cups is the act of finding the right balance between two sides, creating equality by integrating the subconscious and the conscious mind. The sun setting upon the mountain in the grey background illustrates that there is serenity throughout the muckiness of life and illusional situations.

Temperance is contemplative, calm, solitary and balanced. It involves moderation, acceptance, peace of mind, compassion and goodness.

If the temperance card comes up in a relationship query it could be a warning to step back and to go inside – to reassess and to see if equality is the base of the love relationship. It suggests that the active mind and the unconscious are not aligned and you may be needing respite from the relationship to seek truth. Is your relationship balanced? Are you balanced emotionally, physically, spiritually? Are you being treated fairly? Are you being fair?

Temperance may alternatley be asking you to stay calm in a difficult situation. Your relationship may have trouble and the cards are asking you to stay cool and collected and to step into your own integrity and allow the external to unfold. You do not have to put yourself in the middle of someone else’s burdens. Love that is deep and real will not leave you – it will will still be there when the tide comes in – when the storm passes – if it isn’t you will know soon enough.

temperance tarotYou may be being called to show your personal power and strengths to ensure your love is honest and real or that you are being treated with honour and respect. Patience is key here. It could be a time of restraint and standing alone. The unknown is prevalent, but it heeds being true to yourself and making fair and just choices.

Co-operation is integral to any successful fulfilling relationship and this card wants you to know the power of co-operation. Co-operating between two people makes a relationship strong and healthy – if one person is not available or not adapting the relationship will fail. Ask yourself “Am I co-operating?” – “Is my partner present?” – “How can I communicate my needs and concerns without blame or anger?” – “should I move back and allow regeneration of self” – “Is this what I truly want?”

If you have just met someone or are single this card may be asking you to stay calm and to not rush things – the angels are on your side and your steady pace will assist in the unfolding and healthy development of love. It may be advising that you have indeed reached a period of balance and self acceptance that will allow love to come to you in a real way. Stay open and stay calm and true to yourself.

temerance tarot cardIn relation to work and goals the temperance card says you are on the right track and you have sufficient balance in your undertakings. You may need to let go a bit and allow.

This card wants you to know that you have done all you could and that now it is time to sustain a balanced approach and to be open and calm in your transactions and services. The hard work is over – you can now gently enjoy the rewards.

If you are working with others this card suggests that you may need to take a back seat and allow someone else to steer the ship for a while. They may have more business knowledge or a skill that you do not possess and it is safe to allow them to take the reigns while you concentrate on your role.

temperance tarot cardSpiritually this card is about a time of self acceptance – usually after a struggle or a crisis. The Temperance card suggests that you have found a balance between your true desires and your self worth. You have overcome the heartache or disappointment and have become gentle and soft in your approach to yourself and your life. You have acquired a balanced perspective in your inner world and your outer world is following suit.

It could mean that a time of solitude is nearing its end and you are ready to embark on new beginnings as you have found sincere peace and honest strength. If this is not the case this card is warning that you need alone time to reflect and heal. It is calling for you to understand the truths of your situation by going inner. By accepting the past and letting it go.

Regardless of what is happening in your life this card wants you to stay calm and centered. You will benefit with a lovely and prosperous outcome if you listen to your higher self, respond not react and live with sincerity to your hearts language. Allow the flow of external events to take there course and remember your divinity.

YIPPEE finally the card we have all been waiting for… Oh but wait… is it really?

“If someone comes along and shoots an arrow into your heart, it’s fruitless to stand there and yell at the person. It would be much better to turn your attention to the fact that there’s an arrow in your heart…”
― Pema Chodron

loversKeywords for Lovers tarot: Love making, attraction, union, sex, compatibility, opportunity, romantic connection, decisions, new beginnings, lust.

The Lovers is one of those tarot cards that really requires the reader to call upon spirit guidance to determine its precise meaning, as this card can be heeding a warning or a blessing alike.

As the Gemini may or may not have evolved, so too the situation may be loaded with lessons or fruits of potential nurturing and holistic love.

The angels and guides are providing an opportunity for true love, mutual attraction and union when the Lover card appears.

However, if the querent (or the person the card is referring to)  is still in the early stages of a Gemini’s growth (where two sides are polarised) the relationship may be just that-  an opportunity.

a lovers tarot cardIf the querent  (or the person the card is referring to) has progressed through the stages of awareness, open heart and mature growth then the message is one of exquisite union and longevity.

It could have the potential of lasting and sincere true love. This card shows that someone with all the gifts of passion and sensuality and attractiveness on all levels will enter your life or has entered your life. You will be swooning and whirling and twirling with a promise of love in your step.

The attraction will be strong and powerful and will often be a soul connection. You can be assured that a great pull will occur within you and it will be mutual.

This card is quite sexual and can be a warning that sex (although important)  is not the base of true love. It may be suggesting that you not confuse lust with love. In some cases a lover comes into our life for healing for past relationships from this life and others.  It can be asking you to go into the relationship with openness and no expectations; to enjoy the bonding but to steer clear of expectations, to allow it to be what it is.

lovers tarot meaningRegardless of the outcome this card does signify that you will fall in love.

The Lovers card can be about choice though also – As the fool on his or her journey suddenly stumbles across love – deep palpable love – but it may not be the direction the fool was consciously traveling on – they may have had other plans.

Love being the essence of life may challenge us at times if we are not ready for it.

This card may be showing us a test of faith. Calling us to accept that love is our path, that we do not choose when and where we meet our love. That this true love may have challenges attached to it. That when the lust moves past it initial stages the test of love will be sort. Compromises, not sacrifices, will need to be made in the  name of love.

Truth will be exposed and we have a choice of the heart or the head. Free will may be a vital key in the outcome of the lovers path – as always. Be cautious of the shadow self – be open to change and growth as this card offers a rare opportunity and if you resist or control the passion or do not honour the love in some way the love may be lost. Remember free will, this is what we are accountable for on our life quest. Love needs to be nurtured.

lovers tarot cardThe union is blessed (destiny has presented itself) but the will of the individual will decide the fate.

The dichotomy of the laws of nature may provide our souls with great lessons. How we choose to move through this cycle, this lesson, this destiny is always our choice.

If your query is about work or goals or projects it may be indicating that this person will come through the work place. Or it could be advising that you will love what you do and it will provide you great fulfillment.

Spiritually this card may be about being ready for a union that helps you to explore tantric love and brings you immense growth; reaching truer heights of self love that can then be experienced with another.

lovers tarot meaning

It could simply be saying that you are ready to meet with true love as you have advanced through the stages of awakening that warrant a sharing that is greater than one with self alone.

Consciousness is integral here. A union that helps you to learn and grow through the love of another. A union that reaches beyond the old patterns and asks you to move from intuition and deeper caring for self and others. Perhaps even a union that brings forward your life purpose.

The lovers card is the raw essence of love. We must learn to love ourselves before we can truly give openly and wholly to another. Yet, we also learn about ourselves through relationships with others and/or we can learn love within the relationships. Again the choice is ours.

When this card comes to you in a tarot reading it may just be this time (time for you to experience meaningful love) are you up for the challenge?. Open your heart. allow to receive and make the choice to go wholeheartedly into  the equation of union and you will experience delights of the soul, exquisite personal growth and a whole new level of being.

The lovers is your choice not just your destiny :)

“If you can master yourself than you shouldn’t have trouble mastering everything else”  

The emperor tarot cardThe Emperor sits upon a throne which symbolises his sturdy, steady, well grounded authority. He has a long white beard that represents his years of experience that have afforded him great wisdom – wisdom that comes from consequential knowledge, learning and experiential growth. The four Ram (Arian Symbols) on his throne are indicative of determined action, leadership, intelligence and  independent initiative.

He is wearing robes of royalty, a gold crown and is amid a backdrop of orange sky (sunset, holding a golden staff. The robes and crown are about his status, the gold staff, a symbol of his unquestionable authority from experience and  the sky about the assuredness of the outcome.

The Emperor in that Tarot is a strong male energy, often a father figure – one who is solid and strong and who is able to stand his ground in any situation. This figure however is wise from life’s lessons and understands the way things are on a mind level, from his own great travels and experiences. He can be strong minded and he is able to assert authority, but only does so when it is necessary as he knows the importance of self discovery through action and trial and error.

As a father figure he ensures that one is protected and secure. He demands that rules and plans are fulfilled as he knows the consequences of hard work and idleness. He is gentle in his wisdom but is also able to be stern when required.

Emperor tarot RumiIn Love the Emperor is often about a person entering your life who is grounded and steady but one who has experience and structures in place developed from knowledge. It could be heeding that this person is heady and needs to connect more with the heart, but the truth of their mind should not be dismissed. It may be warning to slow down and be practical and grounded.

It could also be portending to a partner who is affluent and wealthy. Someone who is well established in their field and is able to provide a stable and solid home. Alternately it may be advising that the new partner will be older and will be bringing a different and often richly rewarding lifestyle to the table.

Sometimes this card predicts an elderly gentlemen who is able to offer advise and has some wise words to impart regarding love. If in a relationship this card may be showing an older person offering their intelligence and wisdom to help you navigate any problems that are arising. In rare cases it portends an offer of financial assistance.

The Emperor is sometimes stubborn and hard shelled – notice the armor on the legs. This may be warning of a difficult stage in a relationship where someone or both people are not budging or being too head strong – more heart is needed to resolve issues and even conflicts.

In business, goals and projects this card is generally about a solid secure outcome, a message that business will develop and become a wealth of stability and success. It could again also be heeding an older male energy that will have advise and in some cases offering money and assets. There will be an older man that can help you – stay open to accepting and listening.

The emperor tarot meaningSpiritually this card may be representing a period of stillness and grounding. You have reached a pinnacle in your awakening and it is time to reflect and allow in the new energies – they will solidify and integrate at a rate that will prepare you for next evolution and challenges.

This card is often also about a time when you are being called upon to be strong and use all your knowledge and resources to move through a life cycle. You may be tested to use all your skills and mind to overcome issues of the heart. It indicates strength and pride (without ego), knowledge and much universal help.

When the Emperor appears rest assured you are on the right path and that you are strong enough and capable enough to continue on the journey. What is about to open up for you is meaningful and substantial.

I’m choosing the Wheel of Fortune tarot card to work with for this Solar eclipse. This article is from Nov 13 2012 eclipse, which is interesting because this eclipse happening now is kind of a moving on from that time. New beginnings and lovely love energies abound

I’m going for the Wheel of Fortune tarot card for the impending November 14th solar eclipse

Eclipses always bring change – often creating a process that is inevitable, lasting up to six months.

The Wheel of Fortune depicts karma, good luck, change, destiny, synchronicity, surprises and good fortune.

I like the Wheel of fortune for this solar eclipse because symbolically it is governed by the four signs of stabilty and strength that create a grounding and solid footing amid change and progress.

With ancient alchemical symbols of mercury, water, sulphur and salt (the essential elements in life) right in the centre of a spinning wheel we can predict changes that are full of fortune that are in harmony with the laws of nature.

Anything no longer required will fall comfortably and will create opportunity for a better position in life.

This solar eclipse is a total eclipse and will bare powerful…

Pump up the volume , pull out the pastels, paints and hues of gold and silver, stay home, lock the doors, dance and write poetry.
april eclipse 2014Or Go underground if you can. Alternately, I always promote howling as an option :)

This month is HUGE. All of it. We have a Lunar Eclipse in Libra oppossed by Aries – A Grand cardinal cross and a solar eclipse In Taurus – All in a matter of two weeks.

The energies begin at the beginning of the month and go as long as six months.

The tarot cards that come to mind are DeathJustice and Five of swords as an indication of the prevalent energies and manifestations that arise from this mastermind of opposition that the universe is impelling. The desired out come however as always is the High Priestess merging with the Magician and transforming the Fool.

BAM BOOM  the Eclipses of July/August last year are finally culminating  into 2014 the year of the golden rainbow and I hope you’ve crossed your fingers behind your back or slayed the ego with a sword of silver lining or it may just get totally eclipsed from you  – with a hurricane of  truth molecules

Expect random particles of information to move into waves, where probability defies emotional gravity. Expect the unexpected. Expect fast furious change. Expect to be amazed, confused, dazed and then some.

There is a path of least resistance but the skies will be festering and the truth will come through. I see this eclipse a little like a person who has drunk too much alcohol and with no control and with dutch courage speaks from the depths of their soul. Wakes up the next day and is either completely oblivious or has the deepest regrets.

Pick your battles though. Eclipses eclipse things, thoughts and people from your life, usually permanently. Be sure that’s what you really want. If it is well and good, but then next minute more truths come through and you may be spinning right round baby right round like a record baby right round round round.             https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGNiXGX2nLU

consciousness april eclipse 2014Your unconscious – your soul connection to mother nature will be stirred, fried and a little overcooked. Mars, Aries and Libra will be the competing chefs brewing truth from the depths of relationships and love. Is your search for betterment coming from a place of altruistic humbleness? have you stopped and prepared the ingredients with a sincere heart? Are you flogging a dead horse from old patterns of hurt and/or opportunistic external satisfactions?

This eclipse shows you where you are at, what your karmic debt wants from you and why you are in your current relationship(s) and how you have manifested them. Libra wants balance and Aries wants to win, Mars loves conflict and  Taurus is a stubborn bull and the cardinal cross wants to flip it upside down and inside out, then shake it up a bit. It’s turned into a cocktail party :) or is that the hair of the dog that bit you?

Back to painting and locking doors and dancing and poetry. This is advised on the Full moon eclipse 15/16 April 2014 as it will be extra potent. I’m expecting by the time more eclipsing happens in Taurus by the end of the month you should have a masterpiece or at least a meal that satiates and nourishes your palate.  You will need it.

It’s clear the unconscious is universal – it’s individual and it’s wholly connected to all – no one misses out on this merry go round of love and truth and giving and receiving. Karma – the law of cause and effect doesn’t abide in the house of personal glory – it manifests in times perfection, for the good of  all.

And this is it – the giving and the receiving  – the intentions – the motivations – it will all come forward. If intentions are for serving with love and care for self AND others – if motivation is aroused by heart and love for self AND others, if giving is equal to receiving and you can honestly say you have surrendered, been honest, been fair and allowed suffering to rise and heal, given apologies where due, back tracked selfishness, fast tracked kindness, opened up to true love, then I would unlock the door but still stay home and pump up the volume, gently and with your phone switched off :)

Without further metaphor these eclipses and the cardinal cross energies will strip back the ego finely. Matters will be brought to a head, awareness of what is will be unavoidable even if we didn’t know it  (if it was sub or unconscious). It all depends on how honest we are with ourselves, how much growth and sincerity we have been living with.

Relationships will be the focus of the first eclipse – any rigid thinking, self sabotaging beliefs (in fast all beliefs) will be brought to the forefront in the most unexpected way, emotions will be tested and felt in fullness – The cardinal cross will throw in some other secrets and will not let you ignore your well disguised behaviours (even from your self) and the Taurus eclipse will confront any remaining mind/emotional and spiritual matters to increase your self awareness and let go of ideas or beliefs that no longer serve you. 

We can glide through this if we raise our consciousness towards love and towards truth – its that simple – The key is that our individual truth may get transformed – our connection to source, to the universal laws that we are all the maestros of and the prodigies of – the great paradox of universal intelligence – wants to break down the pain, the losses, the untruths about who we and others are.

April eclipse 2014 loveIt wants us to move into the light… Consciousness and conscience are two different things and when planets move about like this in the skies this truth becomes illuminated and we have no choice but to move closer to oneness and unity.

Our conscience cannot stay in a rut it will get pulled by our unconscious and by our environment, both sentient and universal.

The fool can no longer travel beside the High Priestess without a heart full of gold and bag full of offerings. By the time we reach mid may when the eclipse portal is complete we will be transformed and hopefully sitting beside the ones we truly love, with warm fires, a good book  and a nourishing smile.
