Question:  How does this New Moon support the Heart?

Summary of Interpretation:  This New Moon supports the Heart’s desire for balanced, heightened powers, and the attainment of deep satisfaction with self and life.


The magic of this New Moon’s support is how completely and utterly it portrays the satisfaction the Heart desires.  In the central card, we see both the masculine and feminine in a satisfied state of having developed their own mastery, and having put forth a child (a new creation) from that development.  To the left, we see full blown expression of our most exotic features, ascending in a flame of inspiration.  To the right, we see the movement up to a new octave of inner and outer experience, having explored, balanced, and empowered the three essential elements of spirit and living life in the material world.

Many of you who follow this blog already have insight about these topics, or have gained some in the detailed instruction about Thoth Tarot that has been written throughout the 2015 lunation posts.  Do you have any stories to share about your experience that relate to this reading?  Your guides, practices, supports, surprising results, and personal commitment to your path are all welcome in the sharing.  Questions on the themes of the reading are also welcome.

To reflect on this spread in private or in a blog discussion:

Trump V carries the spirit of letting the inner masculine and feminine develop extensively and equally to the satisfaction of each.  Have you ever had periods of life where you discovered that your sacred masculine or sacred feminine was growing noticeably? How did it feel? What strengths did you discover?  I experienced developing the sacred masculine and sacred feminine in having to rebuild the inner mother and father after surviving a dysfunctional family.  Two strengths I discovered were a connection to the Earth as a source of nourishment, and business skills that put a roof over my head.

The Princess of Wands illustrates fully expressing unusual gifts while learning about how close to come to the Source of inspiration.  Have you ever feared “being different” by putting forth your particular gifts?  Have you ever “taken the stage” with your gifts shining brightly?  Has it been a mystery how to balance time and energy needed to sustain “the fire within” and doing what supports paying the rent and bills?  Are any of your gifts silently waiting to be expressed?  In my dreamlife, when I have put my gifts too low on the list of priorities, I have a recurring dream of myself and other people wearing white saris (a widow’s costume) walking around in a nondescript dreamscape doing not much of anything.  Meditating on the Princess of Wands helps me to get inspired about what I came to do in this world and to demonstrate that practically in a small or large way.

The 3 of Disks / Mars in Capricorn – shows the act of lifting both consciousness and the outer world to a new octave of experience, in which the three essential elements of alchemy or the three gunas of Vedic knowledge are balanced and no part of the vision is falling by the wayside.  Have you ever worked with a vision board, imagination, prayer or other spiritual practice to take steps to a new level of experience?  On a personal level?  On a global level? As prayerwork for others?

There is magic in community.  Please share a little reflection.

Gratitude to the Moon for keeping the vision of deep satisfaction alive, and blessings to you, dear reader.
