This is the second new moon in Aries this year – a rare event. And even more rare is the hybrid solar eclipse aligning with this new moon. The eclipse will begin as an annular eclipse and then progress to a total solar eclipse visible in the South Pacific and parts of Australia. Eclipses tend to shake up the established order and this one is no exception.
Here is what the cards have to say:
8 The Stag – Universal balance, judgment, divine intervention
On a personal level, some kind of adjustment has taken place. The key word here is ‘responsibility.’ We must, as individuals, constantly observe the rules and regulations of society and these can fluctuate as the views and knowledge of civilization change. Whether on a political or moral level, we subconsciously know when realignment of our perception is due. This is a time to welcome the justice that has arrived with the coming of spring, and the fire of creation. Face the coming season with honesty and integrity and trust to right and appropriate action.
8 of Vessels – Rebirth
Rejoice! A time of renewal and potential is here. The cycle of rebirth and healing brings inner peace and confidence. Once you accept that all the blessings and gifts of life can be yours or, indeed already belong to you, the fear of asking is gone. It is time to shed the skin of the past and accept and utilize the overflowing potential of the present that is freely available to you. Do not be afraid to make mistakes. Do not be afraid to ask: ‘Why not me?’ See potential where others only see barriers. See challenges as others see impossible odds. Apply all that you have learned through experience and toil to any problem and you will not fail. You have striven to survive and absorb insight; you have endured loss to retain your integrity. All of these trials have made you stronger, wiser and more effective. Drink of this new fountain of opportunity and renew your life objectives. You have endured the past, its gifts were hard won; now the challenge of the future unfolds. Grasp it and shape it in your hands as you would have it manifest in your life.
