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.

New Moon, New Cycle

Auspicious new moon in earthy Capricorn. This new moon follows closely on the heels of winter solstice. A new solar cycle and moon cycle begin together.

What message does Capricorn, the sovereign queen of the zodiac, wish to share with you?

Take time to contemplate what you want to keep and discard in the new year. What’s working for you? And what needs to be left behind in 2022?

Don’t act yet – just consider your options. How can you embrace your badass inner queen more deeply? How can you create a life that’s more authentic and true to you?

Playful Sagittarius New Moon

New moon in Sagittarius, the fiery adventurer.

There is a social, communal feel to this moon time. It’s not the usual ‘contemplate your navel’ new moon.

Don’t be surprised if you find yourself suddenly wanting to explore a new place or a new topic. Perhaps you can simply stop working and play awhile?

And don’t let Thanksgiving feast prep get in the way of fun. Add a bit of singing, dancing and goofing off to your cooking and cleaning regimen.

Remember, all work and no play makes Jack a very dull boy.

Don’t be Jack.

Wisdom Unlocked

The small man
Builds cages for everyone
He knows.
While the sage,
Who has to duck his head
When the moon is low,
Keeps dropping keys all night long
For the
Beautiful
Rowdy
Prisoners.

The Journey

“One day you finally knew
what you had to do, and began,
though the voices around you
kept shouting
their bad advice —
though the whole house
began to tremble
and you felt the old tug
at your ankles.
“Mend my life!”
each voice cried.
But you didn’t stop.
You knew what you had to do,
though the wind pried
with its stiff fingers
at the very foundations,
though their melancholy
was terrible.
It was already late
enough, and a wild night,
and the road full of fallen
branches and stones.
But little by little,
as you left their voice behind,
the stars began to burn
through the sheets of clouds,
and there was a new voice
which you slowly
recognized as your own,
that kept you company
as you strode deeper and deeper
into the world,
determined to do
the only thing you could do —
determined to save
the only life that you could save.”
