Card Draw for Aquarius Moon Cycle

Divination for the collective
drawn on January 21.

Raven – creation, magic, illumination
Bear – healing, divinity, invulnerability

Choose the card that calls to you. What word or words come up for you? What qualities of that animal do you possess?

The word that came up for me was cunning. This describes both Bear and Raven – although they express cunning quite differently.

Meditate or journey and ask what wisdom that animal holds that will help you navigate this month.

Capricorn Moon Cycle – Dec. 23, 2022 – Jan. 20, 2023.

2 cards drawn from Witches’ Wisdom Tarot Deck:

4 Moon
Mystery. Wildness. Physical instinct. Liberated feminine power

“There is a wildness within us that yearns to be physical, sensual, animal, free. But fear of this unknown part, of the shadows where it dwells, of where it might take us, has left us all only half alive…

Wildness is the only path to the moon. There is no need to dread the companions who will teach you how to shapeshift into hoof and horn, paw and claw, fur and feathers, fins and scales, bud and leaf and flower. Set your foot upon the silver path. The moon will light your way from fear to the fierce and freeing desires of your wild and natural self.”

4 of Water
Open your Heart. Grieve. Reach out. Rejoice

“Whale is a wise and compassionate being who will guide you through the currents of your feelings and show you how to live in a connected way. Invite them into your life. Journey, dream meditate, pray, study, visit with and volunteer for whale. Allow whale energy to move through you…

Let whale teach you to sing.”

2 cards drawn from The Wildwood Tarot Deck:

6 of Vessels
Reunion

“Recognition of ancestral and reincarnation memory.”

5 of Bows
Empowerment

“The time of self empowerment by seizing the initiative is here.”

Trickster Full Moon in Gemini

Image by Katsiaryna Naliuka

Full moon in airy trickster Gemini. Lorna Bevan at Hare in the Moon Astrology described the energética of this time so well, I want to share her words here.

Sending 🌙💗 to you in these wild times.

“Footfalls echo in the memory, down the passage we did not take, towards the door we never opened, into the rose garden. What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from.” TS Eliot.

Welcome to the Wasteland, the In Between, the Zero Point….. whatever you call this place of stillness, suspended in time without movement or momentum. Not until January 2023- when Mars, Mercury and Uranus turn Direct on the 12th,18th and 22nd -will we be released from this place of no escape from the here and now.

For those of us who constantly seek newness, distraction and busyness in order to outrun reality, this is challenging. So many of your old tricks which always got immediate results in the past, are no longer working. That time-line, that energy is now deleted. The feeling of loss and lostness is caused by the fact that the old outdated patterns within you cannot find a resonance field now the old timelines are gone.

What we are really experiencing is the ending of multiple planetary cycles in preparation for an influx of new energy in March 2023 when the Great Eliminator Pluto enters Aquarius for the first time since 1798 and Lord of Time and Karma Saturn enters Pisces for the first time since 1994.

In December, pushing the river is pointless. It’s a time for tying up loose ends of all kinds, for completing incompletions, for weeding out old entanglements that keep you stuck or small. Deeply letting go means looking at what needs to change without guilt or judgement.

Wipe the Slate Clean….

Make 2 lists: What you need to resolve or eliminate and What you are compelled to create.

You are now in a moment where you get to review, rethink and recreate just about anything you want. This may involve any facet of your life. You can’t so easily relate to your past anymore. Your soul sees it all as just experience. There is less and less emotional attachment to it. It’s a blessing because it is making room for new memories. It is freeing you up.

Ask yourself:

what’s heavy, weighing me down?
what am I tolerating, putting up with or settling for?
what am I fantasising about leaving or radically changing?
what would I love to never do again?
what is chronically inflamed?
what am I tired of feeling, and what makes me feel that way?
what is dead in the water?
what no longer has traction?
what’s the one thing I’m afraid to say about my life and what am I going to do about it?”

I will no longer whisper my prayers in secret 
for fear of being called a wild-eyed witch.
Look for me in the forest, 

howling at the moon.
~NancyL

I Am

I am the moon goddess casting a silver net over this night

I am the brooding black raven asleep in the dark wood

I am the dreamer and the fox who guards the dreamer

I am the windswept plain where lost dreams can be found

I am the bone songs of my ancestors playing on the wind

I am the heart of the ancient sycamore crumbling into dust

I am green leaves capturing rays of sunlight as they fall

I am the lone crane, standing watch near the shore

I am the jumping salmon crane silently waits for

I am the dance of flickering flame consuming it all

I am Phoenix reborn from the ash of what came before.

~NancyL

Painting: Moon Woman and the Serpent:
Gifts of the Dark by NancyL

Sunlight

Down near the bottom
of the crossed-out list
of things you have to do today,
between “green thread”
and “broccoli,” you find
that you have penciled “sunlight.”

Resting on the page, the word
is beautiful. It touches you
as if you had a friend
and sunlight were a present
he had sent from someplace distant
as this morning—to cheer you up,
and to remind you that,

among your duties, pleasure
is a thing
that also needs accomplishing.

Do you remember?
that time and light are kinds
of love, and love
is no less practical
than a coffee grinder
or a safe spare tire?

Tomorrow you may be utterly
without a clue,
but today you get a telegram
from the heart in exile,
proclaiming that the kingdom
still exists,
the king and queen alive,
still speaking to their children,

—to any one among them
who can find the time
to sit out in the sun and listen.

~Tony Hoagland
