An excerpt from the companion post on Tarot for Troubling Times. Strength, Lust and Justice are envisioned in the Toth Tarot…

 

Toth Key XI – Strength/Lust

Lose yourself in loosening the reins of weakness
Use your power to affect change
See the full vision of many paths and many ways of being
Trust in your instincts as….
                             The Strength Within You Grows

Wait, what? Why are the Strength and Justice Keys reversed in Rider-Waite vs. Toth? These are the numbers:

Rider-Waite: Key VIII – Strength
Toth: Key VIII – Adjustment/Justice

Rider-Waite: Key XI – Justice Rider-Waite
Toth: Key XI – Strength/Lust

The sweet irony of this draw is…

Strength and Justice make wonderful bedfellows. What we lust after is fueled by action, desire and determination. Strength benefits from these attributes when they are in balance – the necessary component to ensure that Justice is exactly that.  Read Full Post…

This year I am using the wisdom of the Major Arcana to offer inspiration and perspective to what will most probably be a challenging year at all levels. Please enjoy the excerpt below from my new blog..

Tarot for Troubling Times

slide21First card drawn- Strength!

 

….What is the theme for this year?

Every year on January 1st, I draw a card from the Major Arcana selection to ask the question that will set the tone for your year. Woke up this morning and sat quietly thinking what that question should be to begin this year’s work. So many things in flux this year and so much work needed, both on myself and within the larger community.

And, so I settled into the question of what the theme of the year would be. Shuffle the cards, deep breath, reach out with anticipation and draw from the pile. I hold the card face away just for a moment and then turn it over….

Tarot Key VIII – Strength…. Yep, that’s about right. Strength is exactly what will be needed to navigate this new year.

Solid foundations must be crafted upon which to stand;
Trust in the process, resolve is at hand;
Rise above limitation and learn from your peers;
Empower yourself with wisdom honed from your fears;
Notice the strides that have been taken and make note of missteps;
Gather to you all your courage and worry not about safety nets;
The answers that you seek are those that you already know;
Honor what you have created and stand in truth as……
The Strength within you grows.

Musings From the Mystic Path
The Month of December
The Light Returns and the Fires Awaken

December is the month of the Solstices; Winter, in the Northern Hemisphere and Summer in the Southern. For those of you in colder climates, we have a Wassail Recipe that is sure to warm and soothe in the frosty weather. Typically, it is a time of acknowledging that balance and harmony are not always about equanimity. In order to thrive, each must be given its time of power. The quotes selected this month are a mix of selections from various writers with a theme of light and “whole”ness as we find the space of balance within ourselves.

This month we have the second installment of our new column, Tesseract, written by Iolanthe. The focus is on the First Quarter Moon of December and scrying our way towards new beginnings.  Seekers…

There are times when we feel powerless in affecting change in the way that we would wish. Times that are particularly difficult to navigate and the anticipation of what the future will bring is colored by doubt and fear. We push and strain to let our voices be heard and in the best of it, we step more fully into our power. In the worst, we feel that all of our efforts have been a shot in the dark. Each strike sent out from a tense bow of frustration and an exaggerated aim that often overreaches the goal we loosely had in mind.

These are the times we are facing now, with recent political event looming large and ominous in the United States and global affairs precarious in their awaiting the outcome of the collective mind of the USA…

If you celebrate Samhain during the Traditional time of the year, today we are mid-point between a 3-day aura of Samhain’s energies. The 29th heralded the transition into the Scorpio Moon at 10:01p.m. and today’s New Moon shifts the gears from waning towards waxing at 1:38 p.m. All this carried forward into tomorrow, October 31st traditional Samhain. You could stop the Samhain revels there , if you like, but consider this. The 31st is the appetizer served to whet the appetite for the most potent and nourishing of energies that occur on the date of Astrological Samhain (Sun in Scorpio); usually somewhere around Nov. 6-7 or 8th.

Why, this second date? Technically these celebrations were calculated in accord with the mid-point (of days) between the Equinoxes and Solstices. The same holds true…

Croning Moon enters the dark…

Her waters rise leaving the
Last of home and family behind.

Waters soon to be heated by
The Lion’s charismatic touch.

Father Sun carries the scales
Into the Dark underworld as
Scorpion flicks its pointed tail.

What slithers forth and lifts into
Solar Light soon to soar keen of sight.

The time is at hand
The mysteries revealed.

The Lion and the Scorpion
On this day move in accord
Bringing the Ancestors home.

Croning Moon wanes into its Fourth Quarter phase mid-afternoon bringing the energies of home centered astrological Cancer in its latest degree (and fullest impact) and shortly after transits into Leo. We can use this to set our intention on those ancestors of home and family that we desire most to…

Full Moon Aura
Transit into Gemini

Mother Moon bathes us in Her Light
The edges of her cloak gently
Pulling up as they will gently
Surround her draping her in
the Mystery of Darkness.

She is pregnant in Her fullness
And new life awaits the outpourings
Of creations emotive flow.

She stood resolute and strong emerging
From Aries act of new beginnings and anchoring
Herself in the depths of manifest stream
The Bull breathed through Her.

Now on this day she gives birth to
A heart that is Divinely inspired
And ready to open to speaking the
Words of connection.

Today we are nearing the 4th Quarter Moon and the Sun’s transit in Scorpio on Saturday, the 22nd. With the Moon in communicative Gemini we can use this energy as messenger of our intention. Intention to soon stand at the Gates between the worlds and seek…
