2018 Aries Full Moon in Phoenix Month

September 22 2018 is Autumn Equinox, equal day and equal night, a time for balance as the seasonal wheel turns. September 24 is the Harvest Moon, the full Moon that’s closest to Autumn Equinox. This Harvest Moon is in Fire sign Aries, bringing energy and vitality. Aries inspires action, and an independent spirit, during this full Moon and as this lunar cycle wanes. The full Moon, Sun, and Mercury are all in harmonious aspects to Mars, newly in Aquarius. Mars brings courage, self reliance, and stamina. It’s fortunate to engage in physical activity to strengthen the mind and...

2018 Capricorn Full Moon in Horse Month

June 27 2018 at 9:53 pm PDT is a full Moon in Capricorn. Earth sign Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, the planet of hard work and duty. This full Moon conjuncts Saturn, bringing a serious tone to emotions and life outlook. Capricorn’s influence helps apply full Moon insights to planning and other practical matters. During this Earth Horse month, you can cover much ground. As the full Moon wanes, complete projects before moving on to greener pastures. Luck can come your way because the full Moon and Saturn trine Uranus in solid Earth sign Taurus. It’s an ideal time to make quick...

TAROT and LITERATURE

Autumn Equinox was yesterday as the seasonal wheel turns towards winter — the perfect time to read books! To learn more about tarot, study the classics. Seek tarot archetypes hidden in the pages. Could an aspect of THE MAGICIAN lurk in Oscar Wilde’s A Picture of Dorian Gray? Or is it THE DEVIL? THE TOWER seems like the card for Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. But if you read it, you will see how it’s a classic of Romanticism more suited to THE LOVERS than THE TOWER. THE HANGED MAN is one tarot card that most people have trouble understanding. The novel Things Fall Apart...

Fear of the Death Card #13

This morning I received a phone call from a woman who was interested in a tarot card reading about a relationship with her friend. They’ve known each other for many years, but the friend was jealous, becoming more and more difficult, and was more of a frenemy than a true friend.  I told her to prepare three questions, or topics, for the cards. Her first question can be about the friendship. Then she told me that she was reluctant because she feared the Death card. I told here that if she did get the Death card, then clearly time to end the friendship! Death. It’s over. She was...

Lost Crystals

A tarot student asked my advice about crystals. He purchased two amethyst crystals and a clear quartz. He lost one of the amethysts while out with a friend on Halloween weekend. Then during the first week of November, he misplaced the other two crystals. So he did a one-card reading about this, and pulled the Death card. He very rarely gets the Death card so was challenged about how to interpret this. Because of the Death card, the crystals are gone and are not coming back. He won’t find them. But to let go and be respectful, he can psychically tell the crystals to be found by someone...

Lift Your Spirit!

One of my tarot students had a sudden accident. She hurt her back when she tripped over her dog (a lovely lab) who always follows her around. This Fire Monkey year 2016 is the time of accidents and injuries, not lingering illness like in Snake or Rabbit years. Plus her accident occurred during the recent Mercury retrograde. She selected 3 tarot cards, one each for Body, Mind, and Spirit. Body and Mind were good cards for her, but not Spirit. (This tarot spread for health is on page 164 of Introduction To Tarot.) So her spirit was waning, she was becoming discouraged, and she asked if I have...
