Soulcards 2, Tarot of the Origins

Quickie read, intent: New Moon Prep for all.

First card you interpret, though I will pitch in that New Moons are always conjunct Sun.
Introverted, passive, reactive yin Moon meets expressive, outgoing yang Sun; traditionally seen as feminine and masculine, respectively.

Second card is Sacrifice.  A rite of passage which frees spirit from the material prison of the body in order to attain divine insight – a vision quest. 

:::::::::::
The sacrifice card made me think of the Lakota Sun Dance (traditionally held in the summer on a full moon).  It is a rite symbolizing life and rebirth (Pluto, New Moon is conjunct) held around the sacred cottonwood tree
(found inside the cross-section is a perfect five pointed star which represents the Great Spirit).   The (skin) piercing that takes place is the most sacred part of the sundance ceremony. It represents individual sacrifice for the good of the tribe, honoring Mother Earth and women who give life through childbirth.  source

Earlier this morning a 3 card draw of my own so perfectly spoke to my need for an abundance of angles rather than a cacophony of curves.
curves & angles 003I found it a pleasingly intense insight.

There are no mistakes and it’s never boring on the edge of imagination, which is only pure spirit out having a bit of fun.
Wavy Gravy

Welcome to 2013 !
Gotta laugh, life is comical.
 I was tweaking one teeny thing in drop down menu and the whole thing went pfft.  Transit Pluto square (Uranus and) natal Saturn in Aries 3rd – techno snafu gutted it.
Was making changes anyway – this just speeds things up a bit.
::::::::::::::::::::::::

Mercury in Capricorn coming to conjunct Pluto and Sun all square Uranus in Aries.
 Moon is in late Leo on her way to Virgo, as she moves into Virgo – she will trine all of the above, one after another.

Tuesday January 1
Moon into Virgo
11:35pm CST, USA

Aquarius Mars trines Jupiter Rx in Gemini – both sextile Uranus Aries.  Headspace is going to be busy – ideas rushing in – full of dualities and possibilities – Jupiter opens new horizons in the brainpan.

Saturn in Scorp streamlines – squeezes – she digs, delves and uses all that swampy gunk, all the Plutonic trash to make treasure. 
Scorp rids; Cap builds – both take time, fyi…
 Saturn and Pluto aren’t exactly Ferrari’s of the zodiac, so be patient with yourself.

Think of Saturn in Scorp as your diamond / oil transit. 

Mind your mines as Jupes Rx is still a stress point with Saturn and Pluto.
Saturn in Scorp is all about releasing what is no longer of USE.
Write it down & burn it up if you have to – get rid of what mentally ails / fails you.

We’ll be getting lots of support from earth to earth – Virgo Moon hits the ground running. Thoughts and feelings gain traction on the material plane, slow and steady processing is progressing, stay positive.

Aries / Libra will be growth central – actions imminent !
Cancer peeps pop up making you aware of actions you need to take.

Mars squares Saturn : time to slow cook the gumbo. 
You KNOW what you DESIRE – and you want it now ?!? lol. yeah, I get that.

Lesson of Jupiter Rx point of Yod ?
Trusting the Finger of the ONE God / Goddess.

The universe works with you . . . critical information will download as it is meant to, precisely on time, as the gears of the cosmic wheel shift.
Trust it.

Desires on parade


Firebird and Phoenix by Markova Dasha

Tuesday April 10 CST, USA Pluto stations retrograde 11:25 am

Friday April 13 CST, USA Mars stations direct 10:53 pm

Prior post here (click).
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Pluto DESIRES.
Pluto is SEX.
POWER.
OTHER PEOPLE’S MONEY.
DEATH.
Pluto is FORCE – the drag you kicking and screaming like it or not GAME CHANGER.
Pluto DELVES DEEP.
Pluto is DEFIANCE.
STRUGGLE.
Pluto is INTENSE.
Pluto rules anything small or miraculous.
Pluto may be small but take it from someone who has it hooked up with BOTH luminaries – Pluto’s packin’ one hell of a punch.  Underestimate it at your own peril.

Pluto is the light burning from behind the eyes – the DIVINE WILL.  Pluto is the higher octave of Mars the aggressor.

Mars is the PERSONAL WILL – the physical energy behind the natal chart – it is your blade, your weapon, the traditional ruler of Scorpio.

Mars and Pluto are kicking into gear this week – POWER IS FLUCTUATING.

Pluto is a generational planet, moves slowly and will stay in one sign from anywhere from 11-30 years (average 21 years).

Mars is a personal planet moves through a sign on average every 2 months.
Mars has been in Virgo since November 10, 2011.
Mars kicks the door in on Libra on July 3.
FINALLY.
Eight months of aggressive Virgo nit-picking self – flagellation will be ovah.
Hallelujah AMEN !

Not only will Capricorn and Virgos feel this shift – Scorpio (Pluto rules) and Aries (Mars rules) will likely feel it as well.

In the natal, also find any planets in Scorpio or the 8th house to see where Pluto kicks that planetary energy into high gear.  ie: A Moon in Scorpio or Moon in the 8th is akin to Moon conjunct Pluto.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  I am a late 67 Virgo stellium.  Mercury at MC, with 9th house Sun conjunct Uranus and (8th house) Pluto, Pluto trines my Taurus Moon in 4th.

Sun is the center, the ego, the spirit, it rules the heart and the creative spirit.
Pluto conjunct Sun in my experience is continual life-long ego hits – one right after another.  Sun conjunct Pluto is a regeneration of who you are at the visible level – what others see.  A regeneration of how the self expresses the creative spirit, it is WILL POWER.

Contact with Moon is just as powerful – it is POWERFUL INSTINCTUAL DESIRES and a need to plumb the emotional depths.  It is the subconscious brought to the surface to breathe deeply of fresh air and it ain’t always pretty.  We humans are a twisted little bunch ~ beautiful, but twisted.  Contacts to Moon means fluctuation of personality, family and home, restructuring of security, powerful insight into the psyche – it is emotionally wrangling – the discomfort zone 24/7.

Where Pluto lands you will always find CHANGE and MAJOR GROWTH.

Pluto in any aspect reveals a struggle, a force of atomic change that will completely destabilize and restructure that planetary energy.  Pluto rules atomics – positive or negatively charged atoms are called ions.  When you feel better after a thunderstorm, or after you smudge with sage, that is Pluto at work changing energies on a sub-atomic level.  Expect the same energies at work when dealing with Pluto and Scorpio in the natal chart.

Plutonic energies are shifting in the house of Capricorn.
Martian energies are shifting in the house of Virgo.

Find your Capricorn and Virgo houses (also Scorpio and Aries houses) and apply the below to your chart to see where you will be feeling the shift in energies.

Here’s a very general guideline:
1/7 = self/others
2/8 = mine/ours
3/9 = learning/teaching
4/10 = home/career
5/11 = personal will/ will for others
6/12 = personal health & work/ universal health & service

If you need a quick fix and release from overwhelming desires – disengage. (click)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Pluto stations retrograde on Tuesday (USA) in trine to Mars Rx in Virgo and trine Jupiter in Taurus.  That’s gonna tap the primal instincts and crank up the volume on the libido.  Especially true since Moon is trine Sun and Uranus from free – wheeling Sagittarius.

Emotions and instincts are expansive and we are communicating them. Mercury is coming up to dance with Uranus in Aries again, so surprises are on the way from men in your life.  Communications with women or lovers are favored with a quintile between Mercury and Venus.
