Today we are having our Samhain New Moon in Scorpio, so transition should have you right there on the edge of your seat. This is a cross roads time as well, the time of Hecate and yes these planets are showing us this as well. One thing, as I am walking this magical path, I have noticed is how I relate with time. Time “gets away” from me at times, or I will think it’s one time when it’s really another…etc. Dreams of time jumping, or time traveling, which ever you choose to call it, leave me rested yet tired in the mornings. Time is a linear thing indeed. New Moons are new beginnings, and I feel that this is a perfect new moon for the Celtic New Year. Mercury is in Scorpio with the Moon and it is the only planet that can travel thru the underworld, Earth and heaven. Mercury (the messenger of the Gods) rules the mind; the unconscious, conscious and super-conscious. Scorpio requires you to go deep within yourself, so at this time, or cross-road, maybe many of you have made a choice of where you are going, important internal decisions. Pluto, Scorpio’s planet, is about power, so it feels like things will be happening fast. It is time to go to the next level. Maybe opening up doors that were never open before. Scorpio allows us to receive that which we want, learning to trust….trust your intuition, your inner power. We know what’s it is like to not have what we want, so allow this energy to flow to you. These changes can be huge or subtle, can start out as a thought and later be an action or putting you into action. Even with all this transitioning, this is truly a very healing time. The North Node and South Node (18 year cycle) of the moon is very important too. The North Node (where we are going) is going into Virgo today. Virgo is about service to others, passing on or teaching others and honing your skills. It is us making better adjustments in our life. We have come to a new place in our life, so adjustments for this better place must be made. The South Node (where we came from) is in Pisces. The darker aspects of Pisces is escaping, some times into drugs, alcohol etc. We are leaving behind playing the victim and escaping from reality. Dont loose yourself in illusions, here. Sure celebrate, but don’t stay there. We are leaving the past hurt behind and truly healing, allowing well being into our life. Saturn is out of Scorpio, so you should feel some relief. Mars is in Libra and will help us have balanced relationships. I am seeing many doors opening up for you that were not there before and true healing happening. Not losing our self to fear, but one of unlimited potential (New Moon sextile Jupiter). On with the reading!
3 of Discs
Green Man King of Swords 9 of Cups Page of Cups
The energy of this reading is the 3 of Discs is about mastering your craft. This energy is telling us that we need to stay focused on our goals. You need to really hone in on them. This card is advising us that in order to get that which we want and desire we must discipline our self and commit to the path. The Green Man represents raw, primal energy and is the Fool card in traditional tarot. This is new beginnings, taking chances. Connect to that part of yourself. There are powerful forces working here, the energy of transition. It is like many of you have made changes, or in the middle of them and are beginning to go forward. It could be changing your diet, your career, your partner or even just your perception. This is raw energy and very powerful, so the will is strong here. Spiritually speaking, many may be seeking guidance and get it from surprising places. You are beginning to open up, having a new spiritual understanding. Change brings chaos, but this is the transition, this is evolution. You direct its energy, listen to your intuition. .The King of Swords talks to us about our mental clarity and our communication. He urges us to get control of our lives. It maybe a time for you to share you knowledge, teach the next generation. He will help us sever those connections that are not beneficial for us. We may need to detach our self from the situation in order to have clarity, stepping out side the box to see the bigger picture. Remember, the King of Swords is a charismatic leader with great personal strength. Taking control of our life takes us to the 9 of Cups, which is normally called the “wish” card. Here we figure out what we want and we have the strength to fulfill that “wish”. This reading is telling us that if we are to follow the advise of the Green Man, listen to the advice of the King of Swords, we will be able to achieve our dreams/desires. This could be emotional, financial or just well being. So fulfilling our dreams brings us to the Page of Cups. Cups are about emotions, and many times this can literally mean a beginning of a new relationship, or a new level in existing ones. With this reading, this is telling me that we are in fact learning our true value. When we are going after our desires, and in the process of receiving them, our self respect goes up a bit. We are finding peace within our self. We are in fact stepping up in our relationships, evolving into a better, more intimate one. This card can mean reflection as well. Yes this can apply to us as well. We are looking inward, seeing our true worth, seeing our gifts we bring into the world and honoring those. We are becoming very aware of our feelings here, and not falling for the “what will others think of me” but more of “what do I think of myself”. Remember here, to be considerate to others and their feelings as well.
I hope you enjoyed this reading. This reading is very intense, so if you would like more clarity I can pull cards especially for you to see how it all applies to you. If you are still having issues, then you need to ask yourself are you being proactive or reactive. Are you fully being honest with yourself? Are you still allowing yourself to be drained? Are you still going back to that dead end relationship? This energy here is definitely one of shifting, so if you are not shifting then you need to dive deep within yourself and see where the energy is being pinched off. This energy will be going quickly, so it is time to take action. We have had a long ride to get here, so please take advantage of this energy dont let anything get in your way. Thank you so much!
