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.
18 – Magic Stream. When you remember you’re part of the fluid continuity of life, you become a channel for great inspiration. Allow the magic to flow through you and carry your dreams into reality.
36 – Commitment. Others are more willing to enter into partnership at this time. Remember that your partnership with Spirit – and the highest version of your own self – will engage the highest version in another.
30 – Making A Choice. You’re faced with a dilemma or fork in the road and must make a conscious choice regarding the next right action.
“i found god in myself and i loved her i loved her fiercely” ~Ntozake Shange
“The dakini is a messenger of emptiness and also appears in dreams to guide the meditator, and she might appear in real life as a woman with certain wisdom qualities. The dakini is a force of truth: wherever we cling, she cuts; whatever we think we can hide, she reveals.” ~Sapchu Rinpoche
“Another important aspect of the dakini’s feminine energy is how they cut through notions of pure and impure, clean and unclean, what you should do and shouldn’t do. They break open the shell of those conventional structures into an embrace of life in which all experience is seen as sacred.” ~Lama Tsultrim Allione
‘La Loba, the old one, The One Who Knows, is within us. She thrives in the deepest soul-psyche of women, the ancient and vital Wild Woman. The La Loba story describes her home as that place in time where the spirit of women and the spirit of wolf meet – the place where her mind and her instincts mingle, where a woman’s deep life funds her mundane life. It is the point where the I and the Thou kiss, the place where women run with the wolves.’
Consider the words and images shared here. Notice the feelings and thoughts that arise for you. Use this information to gently guide your choices and focus.

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.”
