Slip back into the beats of 1997, make yourself a cup of tea and put on your slippers; this is going to by a curly one.

Pisces new moon 2016 lovepisces new moon 2016New moon’s are traditionally new beginnings and eclipses are illusion smashers.

But, this is a super moon (meaning moon is closest to Earth) also, so you better make sure you have insurance for the illusions residing in your karma closet, cause it may be costly, as they are stolen from the shadows.

This one is in Pisces – the watery,  emotional, deeply other worldly sign that sways between the two worlds – building bridges between the world of illusion and the truth reality.

1997 was the last time we had a new moon eclipse in Pisces, so think back to what was happening around March and August that year and it may or may not give you some clues.

Hopefully you have tidied up your emotional handbags and your karmic rooms or better still built a new home made of genuine ginger and matured love hearts, because the winds might blow and blow and knock the walls down – the pretend ones that is.

Search your frequencies for Elton John’s ‘candle in the wind, take deeps breaths, put on the ripped tight jeans, mix a mock tail and grab your journal.

It will either have pages of love gone wrong, ragged with tear drops or if you have begged for forgiveness, scrambled the heart for answers, thrown out the baggage and the ipod,  you will be aiming for jotting down a colourful and tidy little list of 2016 post illusion integration actions, before you change the frequency and slow dance to Elton’s ‘Something about how you look tonight.

Emotions are messages – they are real but they are not the whole truth. They sometimes get confused from the eras of days gone by – they forget to move with the times. The Pisces depths of emotions will be lit up in all of us – the light is bright because it’s close to Earth and the illusions will eclipse.

Rumi seekingPisces is ruled by Neptune, the tricky magician, so new wave frequencies may arise for transforming into particles of pleasure or if you are lucky old ones may twist and turn into new evolved versions of consciousness and regulated heart beats. If you are like a fish (Pisces) you will go with the flow, into the arms of the beloved.

If none of this made sense you can google “New moon Pisces March 2016” and seek, seek seek or you can put on your blue swayed shoes and make a move toward your congruent love self or other.

Alternately you can simply just sit back in your banana lounge, navigate your navel and the stars and wait for a blue moon 🙂

Queen of cups tarot meaningThe Queen of cups sits in a throne, surrounded by clear skies and and a serene sea at her feet in a quiet, relaxed and contemplative manner, balancing a full but closed golden cup (with angel handles) in her hands.

The Queen is sensitive, compassionate, open hearted, nurturing, emotionally wise and gentle.

The thrown she sits on is solid and sturdy representing the base of her emotional sensitivity and strength. The Cup she holds is one of love, but is sealed, depicting her deep connection to her unconscious mind, her ability to understand the truth of the heart and her connection to her soul.

“People are… Full of contradictions. They’re lonely. And then they’re not. They’re missed. And then they’re not.”– Kou Yoneda

Two of SwordsThe Two of swords depicts a blindfolded woman sitting in front of the sea of rocky waters, under the waxing moon, holding two swords crossed over her in a sign of protection.

The blindfold represents the unseeing mind – there is a decision to be made and the woman has closed off her seeing as she is not wanting to make a decision. The choppy and rocky sea represents the inability for any ships to enter – that the necessary resources are distant and inaccessible.

Swords are about, ideas, intellect, thoughts and imagination – they are crossed and defending in this card- therefore blocking any progress or creative solution.

The moon is shining it’s light trying to let in the intuitive guidance but the blindfold and swords are blocking any possibility of progress, solution or moving forward. The woman knows what is happening but she is blindfolding truth and blocking off any new ideas and life. She is in denial.

The two of swords is about having to make a decision but not wanting to change or grow – it is about wanting things to stay the same and not being prepared to see the truth of a situation and make changes. It indicates a situation that is not healthy, that is not going anywhere (the rocky sea) but the person not being willing to look and to make changes.

Two of swords newThere could be many contradicting elements – the heart and the head may be at extreme opposites. The intellect may need to be released so that the positive thoughts, ideas and solutions will come forward. Continuing on as things are is stopping the positive resourceful growth of everyone involved.

The person is being asked to not be passive, to let go of old behaviours of sitting in pain and stagnant waters. To release the swords of false protection and allow in the beauty of the hearts language, the intuitive offerings of the moon.

In love this card is saying you are stuck in an unhappy situation that you see no way of getting out of. There are opportunities there but you will not open to them because you are not wanting to see the truth.

You are staying in unhealthy patterns and relationships as you are too afraid to create the necessary changes from within you. You are choosing to sit in the pain – guarding yourself from newness and happiness as you are afraid of change and growth and vulnerability.

Two of Swords denialThis card comes up in a reading to remind you that denial will not help, it will recreate more of the same and worse. Blocking of the flow and abundance of love and resources effects the entire community.

You are being advised that it is safe to listen to the inner truths of your heart – that it is safe to follow your hearts desires for they seek for happiness.

If you have met someone new, this card may be showing that you are in two minds, that you are still using your intellect to guide your heart.

You may be holding back and not sure what path to take. Your past may be effecting your decisions.

This card is advising that you must release the fears and the idea of control and follow the path of nurturing and love – or you will lose its beauty and will end up sitting in a life of continuing pain and sadness, not willing to move forward – being controlled by the past.

The Two of swords indicates that the new relationship has vast potential but your intellect or fear may be the only thing stopping it from progressing to the next level.

If single it is heeding that you may be in a rut and that it is time to release old stories and seek openness to new love.

In work, goals and projects this card can mean that you have a serious decision to make but may be only seeing half the picture – you may be looking only at the financial side of things and have forgotten the original passion and creativity that was present in the beginning.

It is asking you to look closer at your situation from a holistic perspective and also possibly to let go of old ways so as to bring in new ideas and solutions to help the work or project grow.

Two of swords truthSpiritually this card portends a need to undergo a transformation of ego mind – the many conflicts and dramas in your life have brought you to  a stale mate and you hiding away from the inner truths that are trying to speak to you.

You may have shut down emotionally or be blocking growth by recreating old patterns of the mind.

This card is asking you to find the courage of honesty and vulnerability to undergo the necessary growth and transformation to make leaps in improving your levels of life and happiness.

It is advising that the swords are falsely protecting you – it is time to release the shields – that you are safe to allow in truth and move forward in your life path.

Denial will hold you in a space of stagnation and egoic confusion and your true essence will continue to fight from an inner scope creating more conflict, more unresolved drama and more pain.

Remember the three of cups is the next card (it is the card of heartbreak) and if you don’t adhere the guidance of the Two of Swords you will fall into the three of cups without further ado.

Denial is a coping mechanism that gives you time to adjust to distressing situations — but staying in denial can interfere with treatment or your ability to tackle challenges. If you’re in denial, you’re trying to protect yourself by refusing to accept the truth about something that’s happening in your life – Psychology about.com

love two of swordsThe Two of swords has promise – it is asking you to release the old thought patterns, to embrace your intuition and to move from the messages of the heart – it is telling you that it is safe to face the truth of your life and your situation and that once you do so you will bring in love, peace and the magic that is your potential.

You will be supported and loved if you let go and open up, the two of swords wants you to know this and is warning you that if you stay in the repression and oppression of the past and the untruths of the mind you will not experience the wonder and beauty of the life that awaits you on the other side of your heart.

You have a choice over your destiny… well mostly 🙂

“It is easier to forgive an enemy than to forgive a friend.”
– William Blake

seven of swordsThe Seven of Swords depicts a person stealing swords from a campsite. Taking five and leaving two behind. The theft of the five represents betrayal and leaving two behinds represents the person trying to get away with the deception.

We see in the background that the thief has been noticed and a person is running to catch them with their sword swinging.

This illustration shows us that someone is being dishonest, selfish and deceptive and are trying to walk away undetected but their deception will catch up with them.

Seven of Swords keywords: Betrayal, running away, shirking responsibility, dishonesty, inauthenticity, independence, going it alone, ego, internal politics, control, avoidance, sabotage

When this card comes up in a tarot card reading it is asking you to be cautious. If it is about you it is asking you to have a look at your actions and thought processes.

Are you being selfish, are your main thoughts negative, Are you avoiding reality. Are you trying to get out of a situation without being honest or brave? It isn’t too late to reevaluate your attitudes and character strengths. You can choose to be honorable at any time in your life – regardless of the past.

seven of swords betrayalBy being aware of self sabotaging behaviours we can begin to address them and make changes.

If it is about another person it is heeding you to be careful – you may be being taken for a ride by someone. Someone is not being honest or open, maybe manipulating for their own benefit.

In a love relationship this card will come as a warning that you a have been or are about to be betrayed. The person you love is acting in a selfish way (you may or may not be aware) and if you have any doubts this cards affirms them. They have left you with two swords, don’t be fooled by this – having one foot in the relationship and one foot out is not love.

Direct confrontation will not solve this problem as the person is being cowardly or dishonest. You will have to go on an inner journey to seek answers to this betrayal.

The best you can do is accept the situation for what it is and begin to heal from the betrayal.

seven of swords loveIn some cases this card could mean that your partner wants to go it alone – they are striving for independence. It is possible that this stage can be managed or temporary but when a partner becomes selfish it can be difficult to navigate – all relationships are about two people, not one.

If you have just met someone or are single this card asks you to hold your heart in as this person is either not ready for honest love, is using you for their own ego or life situation or is not trustworthy. It is saying don’t trust too easily – if this person seems too good to be true, you are probably right. Beware your heart is not stolen.

In work, projects or goals this card can mean that someone is sabotaging your work or that the goal is unachievable. If it is sabotage the person can be dealt with but it will take time or there will be a period of loss and/or opposing forces. In some cases it is a signal that you are on the wrong path and it may be time to let go.

seven of swordsSpiritually this card is heeding you to go back to beginners mind. You are not on the right path, something is holding you back, usually the ego mind and negative thoughts.

The external events of your life are showing you a glimpse of your inner life.

You may need to go into retreat to do some soul searching. Some witnessing practice to see how your thoughts are ruling your life. When we confront our negative thoughts or our shadow side we open up to healing and creating better outcomes.

Living in the present, moving away from the things that are upsetting you and finding quiet space to undergo healing are all helpful when this card appears.

Swords are powerful, they can be used to cut through the clutter, they can hurt others, they can create protection….

How are you using your sword?

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 accept 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  (messages that are congruent with the peace we are achieving by sacrificing the mind) in Ahisma. 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 alternately 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 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.
