New Moon in Sagittarius and a Hints to Santa New Moon Ritual

A quote that always comes to mind when I think of Sagittarius is “not all those who wander are lost.” I have a bracelet with that inscription and I wear it when I’m in the “between” places—when I’m neither here nor there, and I’m okay with it. Sometimes we’re not okay with the between places, but that’s another story.

Live, Laugh, Love Days for June 26-July 1, 2017

Life is always changing, isn’t it? One minute everything is hunky-dory and the next minute something happens and life gets much harder. It’s amazing how just one change can affect everything else in major ways. That was my weekend.

And it’s why I want to focus on the good days this week. I call them Live, Laugh, Love days.

New Moon in Gemini 2017

Imagine a field abundant with flowers of every shape, every size, every color, every scent. A gentle breeze sets the flowers asway. Arising from this ocean of flowers is a  butterfly moving from flower to flower, alighting, rising, alighting, and rising again ~ delighting in a world of variety. That’s the Gemini experience.  And guess what? You’re the butterfly.

Taurus Lunation: Lunar Forecast and Tarot for the Gibbous Phase

The Gibbous phase of the Taurus Lunation is about weighing what you know against what you don’t. This is the phase preceding the big reveal at the Full Moon of Scorpio on May 10th. In this preparatory phase, we need to dot our i’s and cross our t’s. Are things lined up the way they need to be for you? This is a fantastic time to get things in order since Libra is great at bringing things into balance.

Tarot for the Taurus Lunation: First Quarter Phase

The beginning degree of the First Quarter Phase is 12°52 Leo, associated with the 6 of Wands which is sometimes called “Victory.” The First Quarter Phase is a square aspect that calls for adaptation. In this case, the earthy New Moon of Taurus was steadying, conforming, and security-conscious. The fiery First Quarter is expansive, adventurous, and isn’t afraid of taking risks. Continue reading

Tarot for the Taurus Lunation, The New Phase

It’s been a while since I’ve written about the tarot and astrology. It struck me today (on the New Moon in Taurus) that it might be interesting to work through this lunation one phase at a time using cards associated with the beginning of each phase. A New Moon likes to start something new and Taurus likes things she can put her hands on, like these cards, so here goes. Continue reading

Taurus Lunation, The New Phase ~ A Moon Reincarnated

Symbolon Deck

The New Moon in Taurus begins her journey with a pleasant sextile to Neptune in Pisces. Taurus and Pisces are an interesting combination. Taurus is concerned with matters of this world while Pisces may be more comfortable in another. The blending of these two energies can produce true concern and responsibility for the welfare of the Earth and an ability to commune with the divine through nature.
