September 2014 Tarotscope & Weekly Oracle Card Reading

10pentThe Tarot is a system of ancient spiritual knowledge and the mysteries of life. It is a complex language of symbols, numerology, astrology, qabbalah, and archetypes that taps into the energy, intentions, and messages of our higher Selves and the collective consciousness. The cards can enlighten us to the secrets and universal lessons of life, aiding our deeper emotional and spiritual struggles, as well as divining and guiding us in our day-to-day lives.

The Tarotscope is a short general reading drawing a single Tarot card for each Western Astrology Sun Sign combined with the Sun’s current transit.

And here is the Weekly Oracle Card Reading using the Earth Magic Oracle Cards. I probably won’t post these weekly readings regularly in the blogroll, but you can subscribe to my You Tube channel or find them each week under the menu tab above for Tarotscopes and Horoscopes: Weekly Oracle Reading.

Animal Spirits: The Starfish

images-5Lately I’ve been drawn to move closer to the beach and the sea. In Western astrology my Moon is in Pisces, whose ruler Neptune is in my 12th house. To sum that up, I have a tremendous amount of draw to and connection with the unconscious, the psyche, deep psychology, the shadow realm, feelings and emotions, intuition, and the dreamworld. It also means being near the ocean is more natural for me and good for my health.

As I research and ponder moving closer to the ocean I have come across sea creatures and sea images regularly, especially with the starfish. This morning on my friend Linda’s blog, Litebeing Chronicles, the image of a starfish “spoke” to me as if in affirmation of my wish and need to be closer to the ocean.

starSynchronistically, the Star card of the Tarot has been coming up for me regularly in my daily spread. This card is about inspiration, imagination, being in tune with feelings, wishes, and dreams (daydreams, visualizations, goals/desires for life, and even unconscious dreams and their messages, especially if lucid).

The starfish is a sensory creature. It has no brain but a highly sensitive nervous system that allows it to feel its way through life in the ocean, whose tides are influenced by the Moon. This makes it very perceptive and very connected to the symbolism of the feminine, yin, the Moon, water, and the unconscious. Unlike us humans, the starfish cannot over-analyze things, and thus remains interconnected to the Universe. The stars in the heavens are represented by the stars in the ocean, and vice versa. As above, so below

The starry vault of heaven is in truth the open book of cosmic projection, in which are reflected the mythologems, i.e., the archetypes. In this vision astrology and alchemy, the two classical functionaries of the psychology of the collective unconscious, join hands.

– C.G. Jung

Starfish also have the ability to regenerate lost limbs. This symbolizes our ability to shed negative thought patterns, beliefs, attachments, and addictions, and to regrow, renew, and even rebirth parts or all of ourselves to become whole, holy, and healthy.

The Starfish symbolizes:

  • Perception, Sensitivity, Intuitionimages-4
  • Feelings and Emotions
  • The Moon and Tides – changeability
  • Regeneration, Renewal, and Longevity
  • Healing
  • The Unconscious
  • Dreams and Wishes
  • Connection to the Heavens and the Divine

Saying Goodbye to B.K.S. Iyengar

Originally posted on Shambhala Blog:

The great, perhaps the greatest living yoga master, B.K.S. Iyengar died today in Pune, India, at the delightfully advanced age of 95. There will be many public tributes and even more private tributes as his innumerable devoted students honor his legacy. In memoriam, we offer Iyengar in his own words, from his classic work, The Tree of Yoga:

“Death is unimportant to a yogi; he does not mind when he is going to die. What happens after death is immaterial to him. He is only concerned with life—with how he can use his life for the betterment of humanity. Having undergone various types of pain in his life and having acquired a certain mastery over pain, he develops compassion to help society and maintains himself in purity and holiness. The yogi has no interest beyond that.

“An average individual believes in refinement, in becoming finer and finer. He is…

The Twenty-second Nakshatra: Shravana

listening

Are you listening?

The 22nd of the 27 Nakshatras is Shravana, spanning from 10°00′ to 23°20′ in Capricorn/Makara in the Sidereal Zodiac. Shravana means ear, श्रवण, or audible and knowledge derived from hearing, श्रावण. The symbol for this Nakshatra is the ear, and its message is about listening, not to words and sounds, but to the silence, wisdom, and knowledge that comes to us through meditation, yoga, and solitude. It takes great discipline, which is assisted by Saturn, the ruler of Capricorn, to sit in silence alone to understand the truths about ourselves, the world, the Universe, and God.

The ruling planet of Shravana is the Moon, which enlightens the darkness to help us see through illusions. The Moon also and reminds us to reflect upon ourselves and life. The ruling deity is Vishnu, the preserver of the universe, who gives support to our souls throughout the process of learning and expanding.

Shravana is under the influence of all three Guna qualities: Sattva, Rajas, and Tamas. Those born with natal Moon here may fluctuate between these states, but if the saturnian discipline and the moon-like changeability can be balanced, the Guna influences can work together in harmony as well. The main motivation, or Purusaartha, is Artha, which will reinforce any action with purpose, and if that purpose is directed towards self-reflection and quiet solitude in order to understand and listen to the Sound of Silence, one will resonate with the Divine Vibrations of All.

The “Extra” Nakshatra: Abhijit

krishnaDuring the ancient Vedic period there was a 28th Nakshatra called Abhijit, which spanned from 6°40′ to 10°53′ in Capricorn/Makara in the Sidereal Zodiac. This overlaps small portions of both the 21st Nakshatra, Uttarashadha and the 22nd Nakshatra, Shravana. According to Hindu myth, the 27 Nakshatras are the wives of the god Chandra, the Moon, who stays with one wife for each of the 27 days of the sidereal month.

However, Lord Krishna named Abhijit as his personal Nakshatra, making it a 28th one. Abhijit, अभिजित्, means victorious, and it is associated with the star Vega, the fifth brightest star in the heavens. Its ruling deity is Brahma, the god of creation, and Abhijit has a creative influence that can bring auspiciousness for both social and universal good.

108 – Oneness of All

The Web of the Universe

Though the intricate web of the universe is not easily seen with our eyes, all things are interconnected and interwoven into the whole that is the Universe and God. The word “universe” comes from the Latin universum, meaning the whole, but etymologically it breaks down into the Latin uni- the genitive case of unus, meaning of the one; and versus, the past participle of the intransitive verb verto, meaning to turn oneself. The Universe is that which has turned itself of the one, or more clearly, it is the turning of the one itself. The Universe, God, Brahman, Love, Consciousness, or whatever label resonates with each individual, is the One that is the Whole or All, that turns, weaves, and spins into and out of itself.
