“Moon” by Amanda Clark
The last phase of this lunar cycle happens as the Moon in Aquarius squares the Sun in Taurus, being both connected to Chiron and Vesta in Pisces, via a semi-sextile and a sextile, respectively. These indicate emotional healing connected to home, hearth, family, spiritual groups, what keeps us warm emotionally and spiritually, being in service and healing others. It can also represent idealism and illusions in those areas. The practical Sun in Taurus and the mental Aquarius Moon help us to cut through the illusions and heal ourselves. In order to take a deeper look into these matters, we are going to rely on the Sabian Symbols. Our wounds are indicated by Pisces 20-21°: “Under the watchful and kind eye of a Chinese servant, a girl fondles a little white lamb”. The white lamb represents the purity and innocence of something we valued, cherished and dedicated ourselves to in our childhood or in earlier years. What was precious or sacred to us got tainted, causing our feminine self to go through a process of deception that left us with a scar. It might be worthy to make an inner inquire about what or who our white lambs are. The girl is not alone in the image, but it is not a family member who is watching over her, but someone somehow foreign. A little bit of abandonment or lack of identification with one’s family might be some possible traits. The Moon, in turn, shows the girl as a woman, or the mature feminine side, discovering and dealing with the inner child’s wound at Aquarius 20-21°: “A disappointed and disillusioned woman courageously faces a seemingly empty life”. The emptiness might be related to love, relationships, sex, marriage, soul mate, or as a result of disappointment with women or sisterhoods, lack of female friends or female figures, especially in regards to issues from the past or previous lives. This is pointed out by Saturn and Pluto, both retrograde and karma indicatives, forming inconjucntions: Saturn with Venus, and Pluto with Jupiter in conjunction with Juno. Secrets coming to the surface, endings and beginnings, adjustments, being torn between two choices, are all possible. Then we see the woman achieving a clear vision of herself and having her male self reinforced by the Sun in Taurus 20-21°: “A finger pointing to a line in an open book”. In a sense, she is being given clear instructions and seeing things for what they really are, as she reads in black in white without the need of reading between the lines, for the meaning is explicit. This indicates a way out of the past through the use of words. A written conduit for our emotions can be created by journaling, which can also be very helpful in organizing our thoughts, or we could write down affirmations and prayers to be repeated during this week. Pay attention to messages in books or other written media, by taking into account whatever catches your attention in a special way. There can also be a reconnection with people from the past that would fit into the dynamics described. Communication is enhanced since Gemini hosts Mercury, its ruler, and Mars is just entering this sign. We should always be careful when communication is a bit overcharged and watch out for harshness and impulsiveness in our speech, as well as saying more than we should. If actual reconnection does not occur, expect these issues and the people who played roles in it to come to your mind for inner resolution.
The cards tell us that a mental and emotional split that occurred in earlier years has hindered your emotional, material and professional progress. The inner division must be overcome so there will be no more ambiguity and indecision. You will then be able to see your path clearly, focus on it and have a fulfilled love and material life. Regain the trust in your own discernment, for that will allow you to trust others as you see clearly who and how far people can be trusted. Also, you might review your expectations on people so you don’t set standards that are too high. The Oracle card is saying that you are your own Spirit Whisperer at this moment. You are able to remove yourself from a frozen state that was created by the inner division. As you gain a higher view, change your perception and your mind, you will release past misconceptions and the energy blocks created by them. As you find inner resolution, a beautiful rebirth can occur, and you can move forward and have abundance flowing in your life.
