Hi Folks, Happy Full Moon!
In honor of this lunation cycle, I’ve consulted with the Motherpeace Tarot deck to get some insight on how to rock the next two weeks to the maximum. I asked:
"What message does the universe want to deliver to human beings at this full moon?"
Answer: Devil to the right
Alright, I confess, Devil isn’t a card I’m happy to greet in most instances. But the appearance of this Major Arcana in this reading is welcome on all fronts.
On Saturday December 6 2014, unrest is the norm the world over. Corporate greed, political corruption, extreme poverty, totalitarianism, wars, environmental havoc, police brutality, denial of civil rights to women, homosexuals, people of color, combined with a host of other hell-nos indicates marginalization and exploitation is at an all-time high.
The Devil card to the right advises humans to fight back against corruption. It is representative of oppressor vs. oppressed and its presence calls for an extrication from dark forces. And this demonic evil is present in a number of ways: materialism addiction, choosing to remain in ignorance by refusing to acknowledge the truth, abuse in all forms, manipulation and even crippling inertia caused by fear of progress.
The Motherpeace depiction of this card is rad, as there are several figures present in the imagery who are all victim of the same system of oppression. The querent, i.e. you, are meant to select the person you identify the most with in this image: the slave, the master, the show-off daughter, the sexy prostitute, the crone, the Amazonian warrior woman, the soldier, the scribe, the woman selling her baby just to pay taxes, the overlord’s accountant, the overlord himself.
The Devil begs every person on the planet to acknowledge what role they are undertaking in systems of oppression, which now need to be dissolved. Once the Devil illusion is dispensed with through honest admission of parts played, then a creative resolution derived from a space of authenticity will be driven forth.

Notes on the Spiritual Significance of Devil Card:
On the astrology front, the Devil is ruled by Capricorn, a tenth house goat who lords over fame, power, profession, money and rulers in high standing.
In the Motherpeace deck, which is decidedly feminist, The Devil is represented by the number 15. No coincidence the moon falls on December 6, break down number 15 and it all adds up, 1 + 5 = 6. Ones are ruled by Mercury the messenger planet and numerologically speaking they are very fresh and dynamic energies, ideas birthed but not yet born. Fives are challenging numbers ruled by the warrior planet Mars. See how combustible this is? Mercury the messenger is air and Mars the war deity is fire, together, this spells inferno.
The Mercury-Mars inferno meets the Capricorn Devil.
In tropical astrology charts, this full moon is in Gemini, a star sign ruled by Mercury the Messenger. Geminis/Mercurial folks ensure messages get delivered at all costs and since this is a full moon lunation cycle, expect whatever conversation was stirred up in the past two weeks to reach an epic point of completion, or at least for the discussion to escalate beyond belief. Sidereal astrologers state this lunation cycle is in Taurus, an earth sign like Capricorn.
When cards are to the right in the Motherpeace Tarot, they are representative of extremely pressurized energies, pushing things to their limit, GOTTA HAPPEN NOW kinda flex.
