How’s this week been for you? Like what was revealed to us in the Tarot for the Full Moon: December 8, 2014 post, it’s been a sh*tstorm over here. Devil Card to the right in the full moon reading reminds us all hell has broken loose as revelation of unsustainable, dark systems of structures in our lives unfurls. This is Shadow Self out the woodwork macro-micro; society and personal skeletons leapt from the closet.
So, in an effort to remain Light, I’ve asked the Tarot how to up our vibration this weekend and, any day where sh*tstorm prevails in future.
Question: What is the best way to stay connected with vibrant-pure energy in the wake of this chaotic darkness?
Answer: Daughter of Swords reversed (Motherpeace deck) & Ariadne, Soul Mate (Ancient Feminine Wisdom of Goddess and Heroines oracle deck)
Process the hurt. Take a moment: what’s really going on here? Yes, it happened, and now pain can no longer be ignored. You’ve been DISSED, treated like dispensable trash.
Daughter of Swords (which is Princess or Page in other tarot decks) is earth and air. It’s no coincidence this card was pulled in the Tarot Conversations with the Dead: Eric Garner, Part One blog post, here’s why.
Daughters of Swords is the media and news in general. Knowledge of totalitarian regimes in which human life has no merit is depressing. Narcissists and pathologically disconnected maniacs are the only people alive who aren’t profoundly disappointed by the reality of rampant in-your-face inequality.
Daughter of Swords reversed coupled with Ariadne, Soul Mate in this reading demonstrates what’s possible after it’s become evident a major dissing has taken place.
On a mythological level, Ariadne defied her family to help Theseus slay a Minotaur. Promise of reward follows, as Founder-King of Athens Theseus promises her they’re in love and she’ll be accompanying him on his journey. But, he actually dropped her off on a barren island then chose to sail away on his royal boat with no qualms about leaving Ariadne behind. DISS.
Ariadne’s now totally alone in foreign space, defeated, her family’s disowned her and the Pseudo-Love-Opportunist is in another land. And just when she’s about to lose all hope, her Soul Mate Dionysus shows up. They fall madly in love and wed. Dionysus is one of the most rad magical entities ever: he rules wine, orgiastic religiosity, theatre, and fertility. Aren’t you kinda glad Ariadne was dissed now?
This relates on a personal level to the boss who is intractable in his position despite your vocalisations of discontent; the insanely spiteful human being who will just not quit efforts to make life miserable; the life situation which is perpetually whack no matter what level of compassionate-awesome you’re acting from. Step away from the whackness; the energy-suckers do not serve.
Instead take time to reflect on how being thrown for a loop for the final time has opened up space for gorgeous, fertile, love-laced opportunities to show up in life.
Siriusly Sidereal Real Life Advice: Retreat into Self through meditation and deep visualization. Or if that’s not your thing, do anything involving hands that generates soothing self-reflection: paint, clean your house, practice calligraphy, write to-do goal lists, make a vision/moodboard, enforce a phone/computer/Internet break and replace typing with penning deepest dreams and desires in a journal. Breathe, chant, do what must be done to get right in gut. Visit mountains, jump off cliffs, run butt naked in the rain.
*Notes on this reading:
When referring to ‘Light’, we’re pointing to universal life force energy; referred to as Prana or Chi in Eastern traditions and countless others in spiritual practice around the world.
Uranus reaches an exact square with Pluto on December 14-15: If you’re not evolving, you’re failing. These dynamic planetary entities demand transformation; status-quo is a no-go. But not without struggle; the square energy between revolutionary Uranus and power-hungry Pluto spells fierce tug of war between old and new.
