Scorpio Full Moon April 26, 2021 ~ The Star Energy

If you’ve been feeling overly emotional or sensitive the past couple of days it might be due to the Waxing Moon that peaks on Monday April 26th. This Full Moon culminates at 7 degrees 6 minutes of Scorpio at 10:32 PM Central Time.

Mars in Cancer, the ruler of this Moon, is like a red hot poker submerged in a glass of ice cold water–cooled off and slowed down; forced to reflect instead of act. The Sabian Symbol for this Moon is, “ The Moon Shining Across A Lake.” Stillness is the message and when we know stillness, we find peace.   The symbolism reflects the energy of  Mars in a water sign.  The hot and dry energy of Mars that wants to take action is submerged and tempered by water that cools and reflects. This Moon reminds us to slow down and surrender to stillness–to observe and sit with your feelings.  Accept what is and don’t try to force things. 

The Sabian symbolism of the Sun is, ”A Sleigh Without Snow.” What now? What can we make of the situation we find ourselves in? Rising up and meeting whatever comes our way with a positive attitude and a change in perspective allows us to pivot and make the best of any circumstance we find ourselves in. Otherwise, we feel hopeless and defeated. 

Saturn is loosely squaring the Sun and Moon reminding us of limitations and things we have no control over.

Together, this Full Moon asks us to stop and reflect upon our situation. What can we change to make it better? What is it in this situation that we have no control over? Where do we need to let go and surrender? 

While those with planets within 4-10 degrees of the fixed signs, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius, might especially feel this energy, an additional message for the collective is:

“Night” from the Roots and Wings Oracle Deck by Kat Ryalls

 Although a situation feels dire and we’ve lost our faith, the key is to look towards the light–towards the dawn where the sun rises each morning. Full Moons remind us that  we’re never really in the dark– the Moon is reflecting the light of the Sun. Although we can’t see the Sun,  we know from the reflected light that the Sun still shines. It’s always darkest before dawn. The key is to look towards the light.

“Circumspection” from the New Era Elements Tarot by Eleonore F Pieper, PhD

 Circumspection symbolizes that no matter what circumstances we find ourselves in, we can establish harmony through insight and conscious effort. Full Moons bring insight and the culmination of things so let things run their natural course and work with opportunities that present themselves rather than fighting change.

“Rose Quartz” from “Daily Crystal by Heather Askinosie

Rose quartz ties in the energy of the Sun in Taurus and reminds us to meet ourselves where we are today. To practice self-care and love ourselves unconditionally.

The date of this Full Moon also brings in the energy of the Star Card. Faith is restored. All is not lost. We trust that we have what we need or will find a way to obtain the resources we need through the Aquarian archetype inherent in the Star card such as out of the box thinking, innovation and invention. Making the most of our situation and working with instead of against is the way.

Success! You're on the list.

Why Tarot?

People get Tarot Readings for all sorts of reasons. Some think it’s a fun outing and something to do with their friends. Others are hoping to see into their future. I think the best reason to get a tarot reading is perspective. Abraham Lincoln said the best way to predict the future is to create it. The insight gained through a tarot reading helps give another point of view. Information is power but don’t rely on someone else to tell you what to do. Take the information Tarot provides and use it as a tool for empowerment. Make your own choices. Create your own future.

Go For It.

“Wisdom of the Oracle” & “Rider Waite Radiant Tarot”

Sometimes the message we’re given is so in our face clear.

Both these cards were “jumpers” meaning they jumped out of the deck while shuffling. Sometimes I’ll keep shuffling, but I knew “Come to The Edge” meant something significant because this card has come up several times over the past week in my readings.

I decided to pull a clarifying tarot card, but again, out flew a jumper–The Fool. You just can’t make this stuff up.

You don’t even have to be familiar with the meaning of these cards to notice that both portray subjects close to the edge of a cliff. Both subjects are about to step out into the unknown. The essential meaning of both cards is about taking a risk. Taking a chance. You may not know all the details of how it will work out, but the message is about taking the opportunity.

It’s easier to stay where we’re comfortable and secure but when you start feeling something stirring inside that calls you forward, maybe it’s worth checking out. Progress only happens when we do something different, learn something new; take a chance. Lean into the unknown.

Maybe the lesson here is to think outside the box. Be open to other possibilities. Try something different.

The alternative is getting what you always got.

Lion’s Gate Portal Reveals Authenticity August 8, 2019

What a blessing this week has been with the Sun in Leo trining Jupiter in Sagittarius on Wednesday and now the Lion’s Gate portal fully open on August 8th–not to mention this day of Jupiter also brings a lovely trine aspect between Venus and Jupiter.

Can it get any better? Well, yes, it sure can. We also can look forward to Jupiter stationing direct at the end of the week and that lovely Moon/Jupiter conjunction on Friday.

The ancients believed the Lion’s Gate to be an opening in space and time that allows information from the heavens to reach us here on Earth. August 8th is just the peak. The portal has actually been opening since July 26 and remains open until around August 12th.

I’ve created the following tarot spread to have a look at the energy of the Lion’s Gate Portal and what it might bring to us on a collective level in opening the portal to us here on Earth. Try it for yourself for a more personal look.

“Temptress Tarot” by Michele Grey Hartsoe

I used just the Major Arcana in pulling cards for us as a collective.

I like that the two cards speaking about our Sun energy and Sirius, the second brightest star after the Sun, are depicted by two cards containing the fiery Sun colors of Yellow, Gold and Orange.

The Fool shows us how we can come into alignment with our Sun sign energy. The Fool’s energy is the beginning of something. He’s venturing out almost instinctively, following his gut or Solar Plexus. He doesn’t know anything different. He’s just being himself. He has faith and operates on pure instinct. The energy of our Sun sign is our Fool’s Journey. We are growing into our Sun sign over our lifetime. The Fool card reminds us to be who we are and let go of conditioned ideas of who we think we should be.

We come into alignment with our core energy by working with our Solar Plexus Chakra, the area just above our navel. This chakra is associated with the Sun and primarily the color yellow and the element of fire. Orange/Yellow is depicted.

The energy of the Solar Plexus is to radiate our power in the world. We come into alignment with our essence when we follow our gut, our solar plexus, and listen to who we are at our core and grow into our Sun sign. When this energy is blocked, it blocks who we truly are. We aren’t operating authentically. We hide behind a mask.

The alignment of the Sun, Sirius and the Earth during the Lion’s Gate period brings power and energy and even illumination to help us see who we really are at our center.

The energy of Sirius helps to Strengthen us. There is a lot of energy coming through with this alignment. The added energy of Sirius can help provide us the strength to shed the masks we’ve been wearing and reveal our true authentic nature. The added illumination helps show us our true nature and to step into our power.

The next two cards move into the colors of green, blue and purple. These colors respectively relate to heart centered energy, communicating truth and opening the third eye chakra of intuition and connection with source.

The Moon shows us what fears we need to release. We are being called to release fear of change and fears we have around what we don’t understand or isn’t clear. Life is about cycles. The Moon shows us we can relax and lean into the flow of life. Release the fear of the unknown. Be receptive to receiving. The Sun has our back. Have faith of moving into the power of your Sun.

Once we clear and balance the solar plexus chakra, we can move into the upper chakras.

In the Moon card, we move from Yellow/Gold to Purple. When we release fear, we can move forward toward connection with Spirit.

The Hermit reveals the creative energy opening up to us through the Lion’s Gate portal. This card feels like the bridge between Heaven and Earth. It’s like receiving a download of information and wisdom. Again, I’m reminded that once we release fear, we are open to move into the third eye chakra to receive.

The Hermit shows that we each have this ability within. He also reminds us that in operating from within and following our own path, we reach our full potential. We are connected, we just need to be who we truly are and feed our authenticity, remove the masks and step into our power.

I think the overall message we are being asked is to think about and remember who we truly are. Our Sun sign is a clue. We are continually growing towards this archetype. When we are clear with this energy and listen to our gut or solar plexus energy, we can move forward toward raising our vibration and connecting with source in our own way, along our own path.

The cards add up to 8, the infinity symbol reiterating our connection to each other and source and also emphasizing today’s date being the 8th day of the 8th month.
