Question:  How does this New Moon support the Heart?

The Spread (click on card name to view image or scroll down to view spread):

8 of Cups

VIII Trumps

Princess of Swords

Summary of Interpretation:

This New Moon supports the Heart’s unconventional wisdom in its entirety, offering no resources to endeavors that have run out of time in reaching success, but sustaining clarity in practical matters.

Tidbit about Egyptian mythology:

Maat is both an ancient Egyptian word and the name of an Egyptian goddess.  The word maat meant all encompassing truth in the context of a pluralistic society and how the members of it should conduct themselves with honor and consideration for the forward movement of society on an ethical level.  Goddess Maat wore an ostrich feather in her crown.  This feather was used to determine the weight of the heart (soul) of an individual at the time of death.  If the heart was lighter or equal to the ostrich feather, the soul passed onward into Aaru (heavenly paradise).  If the heart weighed more than the feather, it was consumed by the lionness Ammit, who attended every weighing ceremony.  Therefore, the concept of maat in everyday life had prominent significance.  Additionally, it involved searching one’s own heart (soul) for its interpretation instead of referencing a set of codified dogmas and doctrines.

Moving forward with the meaningful seeds of the Spread:

Trump VIII signifies the weighing process the ancient Egyptians undertook in their spiritual reflections.  The ostrich feather of Maat is in the headdress of the central figure, and the scales are present.  Weigh the Heart’s satisfaction with one’s life in general, and then weigh the Heart’s response to the details and components of one’s life as well. Ask the Heart about any components of life that are altogether missing, and initiate their inclusion with the support of this New Moon.  Reflect on the difference between initiatives that have heartfelt values in the present moment, and initiatives aimed to move one up a ladder of wealth and status with some ideals mixed in.  Meet the utterings of the Heart with courageous optimism (the central figure of this card is the Fool/Harlequin from Trump 0) and appeal to the New Moon and one’s own guides for support.

Pay no further attention to that which has lost meaning (8 of Cups shows a few puddles of the water of life spilled over unfertile terrain).  Continue to attend to practical matters with ongoing skill and dexterity (Princess of Swords skillfully wields the sword of analysis and her green and blue attire contribute creativity and wisdom to matters the mind must manage).

Blessings.

Question:  How does this Full Moon support the Heart?

The Spread (click on card name to view image or scroll down to view spread):

VII Trumps

4 of Disks

9 of Swords

Interpretation:

This Full Moon supports focused, life-generating, forward motion in the physical world.  In the Heart’s effort to manifest that, this Full Moon supports taking strides to cover gaps between polar opposites that have perplexed people to the point that those opposites are resigned to the realm of the great mysteries.  The experience within those mysteries certainly is available to individuals who seek it.  Furthermore, following the Heart’s unconventional wisdom brings one to the door of the mysteries where another perspective and sustenance can be found.

Tidbit about the Full Moon:  When the Moon is full, its position is opposite to the Sun from the position of the Earth.  As the two oppose each other, life forms on Earth like the human psyche can feel the tension.  The Full Moon tension “illuminates” conflicts that can be addressed in that time frame, to tune the channel even more to receive the voice of the Heart.

The New Moon and the Full Moon of previous months have both supported the Heart’s desire for 4 of Disks manifestation. This card’s third recurrence this year shows the Moon’s ongoing support for resurrection of life in the physical world — a miraculous, yet everyday occurrence.  From the perspective of the Northern Hemisphere where this deck was created, at the end of winter (the time of Capricorn), the Sun changes its Southward direction and returns to the Northern Hemisphere to resurrect life by nourishing the seeds sown in the land for the next season’s harvest.  This is the example that this card, governed by the Sun in Capricorn, offers to inspire the Heart to revisit its goals and dreams and set out in a practical, focused direction (the one single bridge over the moat between land and the castle).  This does not mean that the goal and dream should be practical, it just means that one small but practically visible step towards the Heart’s goal should be taken, and when taken, would receive the support of this Full Moon.

Indeed, the Heart may have felt many new stirrings since the start of Spring.  Since the New Moon of February 18, 2015 also supported the Heart through the 4 of Disks, reflecting back on what new seed the Heart sowed at that time would be helpful in sorting through the creative chaos and finding a step to take.  There may have been movement to exit out of an old activity or enter into a new one, since this card is about crossing an important bridge.  Since it is now mid-Summer, a sapling would have emerged from the seed by now.  Therefore, whatever bridge the Heart crossed in February, this Full Moon returns to that new life to water and nourish it.

This Full Moon further supports the Heart’s desire to move forward practically through Trump VII and the 9 of Swords.  Trump VII affirms the Heart’s ability to accurately interpret the glimpses of the will of the Divine that it has sought and to capture the ecstasy in itself.  Particularly, Trump VII affirms that the Heart knows non-duality and non-separateness in a way that 1) has brought about solid self-transformation (chariot wheels rolling on bricks); 2) has been guided by ancient guardians (minor sphinxes drawing the chariot forth); and 3) can be a resource to heal others (holy grail of amethyst holding elixir of Christ’s blood in the figure’s grip).  Note: for further research about the card’s many symbols of the masculine and feminine polarities condensing into one entity, Lon Milo DuQuette discusses them succinctly in Understanding Aleister Crowley’s Thoth Tarot, pages 114-116.

This Full Moon also supports the Heart by empowering conflict resolution between intuition and intellect related to the 9 of Swords.  In studies about the Qabalah in Thoth Tarot, the sephira Yesod (Moon) governs all 9 cards in the minor arcana, and the world of Yetzirah (thought) governs the suit of swords.  The 9 of Swords is troubled because the intuitive and creative influence of Yesod (Moon) and its symbolic counterpart in the psyche hit an iceberg in the realm of Yetzirah (strong intellect – 9 swords on a scale of 1 to 10).  When strong intellect leads the way, it distrusts intuition because it has no experiences in memory that support the intuition’s suggestions.  When intuition leads the way, it distrusts the intellect because expressing the Heart’s values may not be a linear, logical task.  Therefore, the two ways of knowing clash and the battle in the house of 9 of Swords rages on and on with no winners (swords damaged and dripping blood, and wings washed down from flight by poison rain).  The Full Moon is ready to “illuminate” this battle so that the Heart can free up more energy to do the central task of resurrecting life in a practical way.

To go forward with the support of the Full Moon:  The central longing of the Heart is to take a practical step towards resurrecting new life, If there has been failure, trauma, or resistance before, this resurrection stands on a foundation that also knows divine ecstasy.  As a point of reference, the Heart may have sown a seed in mid February.  That which is already sprouting in fertile soil can be cultivated and grown.  Stabilize the Self in loving non-separation from the will of the Divine, and apply the intellect to researching and identifying steps that would enhance the dream.  This does not mean to plan how to reach the goal, it just means to plan a useful next step and some related experiences to let the dream unfold.  When one step has been taken, then repeat the process to plan the next step.  Acknowledge where the intuition and creativity may have battled with the intellect, and ask for forgiveness and illumination during Full Moon rituals.

Blessings.

Question:  How does this New Moon support the Heart?

The Spread:

Queen of Cups

V of Trumps

6 of Cups

Interpretation:

The New Moon supports the Heart’s effort to find the support necessary to stay on its path.  Imagination and a sense of well-being shine light on the stepping stones of this path.

Trump V shows us a shrine in which there is a priest-king on a throne who worships a goddess.  There are strong guardians at the corners of the shrine, and a window just behind the priest’s head.  Symbolism of multiple traditions abounds in this card.  At the simple center of it all is a dancing child, which is the Heart, happy in a sense of purity that comes from staying on the path it has loved over time.

Underlying the joy of staying on one’s path are spiritual concepts which provide a foundation for manifesting evidence of that path in life (throne of bull and elephant).  For one, there is a re-defining of how a priest could be.  This priest has the strength of a priest-king who uses his strength internally to endure a commitment (nine nails) to making earthly love (snake) and divine love (dove) harmonize.  The very window behind his head which brings light to the shrine is characterized by the harmonious interplay of masculine and feminine (phallic headdress that can peer through lotus window). As ancient as this masculine-feminine theme is, it still needs regular tune-ups and cyclical attention as the spiral of progress on the subject slowly rises upward in the general consciousness.  The Heart remembers to revisit the work in intervals of its own timing.

Second, there is also re-defining of how the sacred feminine could be.  This goddess (Venus who rules Taurus) wields the mysteries of the Moon (crescent in hand) with the clarity to discriminate (sword in other hand) between humanitarian uses of power and selfish uses.  This work is important in that using mystical powers for nothing more than the pursuit of material wealth and status eventually harms the user’s ability to be fully human and fully divine, and also shows a bad example of spiritual empowerment to those who do not yet know that state.  As important as that inner work may be, still, the Heart understands that the body must pay attention to supporting its worldly life, so the Heart patiently looks for opportunities for spiritual development amidst all the other activity.  One such opportunity may be timely now.

Trump V also signifies the Heart’s readiness for initiation into a relationship with a guide or holy guardian angel, so that higher learning can unfold.  Just like graduating from one school and going to another for intellectual/vocational growth, stages of spiritual development also have completions and initiations.  Some of those developmental stages touch on enough dark or unconscious places that they require guides.  For example, Trump XVIII in the Tarot involves examining ancestral hatred and the many ways one behaves in an obligatory way instead of an authentic way.  There is just too much raw matter and reprogramming of consciousness to do alone, and it is frustrating to just stand still internally while doing more and more of the same old same old externally.  Examples of how guides have a place in diverse cultures are the elders in indigenous cultures, angels referenced in religious literature, the ladder of hierarchy in established religion, parents in family units, therapists in professional mental health services, and senior members of support groups. This New Moon offers a pause for reflection on the direction the Heart wants to undertake next and who might be the best support for it.

The supporting cards in the reading offer further stepping stones to expand the search for a guide.  The Queen of Cups suggests two possibilities where guidance at the next level can be found.  One, that the Heart can look to a good-natured person who it admires to discover the qualities the Heart hopes to develop next (mirroring).  When the qualities are identified, the search for a guide who exists in the physical world would be clearer.  Two, that the Heart can use imagination and dreamwork to vision-quest for a guide in the next important part of the journey (Queen = water element, Cups = intuition, dreaming, imagination, emotion).  This would either provide clues to the right person in the outer world, or it would identify guides who are present in dreamwork, journal writing, prayer, meditation and active imagination (a technique practiced by psychologist Carl G. Jung).  In all these possibilities, there are ways that the self can realize itself more fully, the way the Queen of Cups is beginning to glimpse her complete self by studying her reflection in the water.

The 6 of Cups also indicates how to come in contact with the next guide.  One, the type of leadership the guide would be offering would match one of the Heart’s deep seated wishes.  Two, by pursuing an activity which seems satisfying at every level (not just the level of earthly desire), one would come in contact with like-minded individuals who could provide mentoring.

How to go forward with this spread:  First, study/review the qualities ascribed to “the masculine” and “the feminine” to note how those polarities are operating in oneself.  Second, determine what the Heart wants to do about that dynamic, and within 48 hours of this New Moon make a statement about developing that area in a way that involves the Heart (poetry, art, ritual, prayer, other spiritual practices).  Embark on the stepping stones of the Queen of Cups and 6 of Cups, and by the next Full Moon, formalize what and with whom will be your next stage of development.

Blessings.

Question:  How does this Full Moon support the Heart?

The Spread (click on card name to view image or scroll down to view spread):

XII Trumps

XI Trumps

Queen of Disks

Interpretation: This Full Moon supports the Heart’s surrender of its charismatic and creative will to the source that inspires it and shines light on the path leading to adventures in useful directions.

Trump XI shows the golden Whore of Babylon riding a seven-headed beast and raising the Holy Grail, an image which speaks of the level of satisfaction the Heart achieves when it stretches itself to unite its gloriously creative talents with the Divine, therefore tempering them with love for humanity and the desire to serve it at every level.

In modern times, the most acceptable divine feminine image is that of the Virgin.  The purity and receptivity to the will of the Divine that the Virgin symbolizes receives regard in many cultures.  Prior to this era, another vision of the divine feminine was that of the Great Whore in whom human kind, having been intoxicated and smitten with the quest, united its intellectual and creative developments.  The seeker subsequently discovered unimaginable satisfaction, and perpetuated by retelling with personal evidence the mythological stories that had initiated them on that path.  According to Trump XI, in addition to gaining personal satisfaction, the seeker also gained connection to the Holy Grail, a cup symbolizing the endless flow of intoxicating wine (love).  Such an overflowing amount of love then graced the initiatives the seeker undertook thereafter, spreading the healing and inspiring rays to the rest of the world.

In an age of technology, this palpable passion for uniting with the Divine is somewhat unfathomable.  However, in other older cultures, there were ceremonies, rituals, and festivals that could unlock such feelings.  Also, the mythological stories of certain goddesses and the presence of goddess statues in temples provided a forum where such feelings could germinate.  This Full Moon supports doing discovery work to re-connect to passionate, intoxicated feelings for the Divine.

Noteworthy is the third recurrence of Trump XII, this time as a supportive pathway to the work of Trump XI.  In the last two New Moon readings, the lunations supported the work of Trump XII and its reversal of mentality such that the Heart informs the mind instead of visa versa.  Now, as the Moon waxes full, the work of Trump XII ferries the Heart to the harbor of Trump XI which is a seductive and vibrant experience, like the naked and golden Babylon the Great riding a powerful and dynamic beast in the card’s image.  The two characters are as one as the wash of warm golden color unites them.  What a wise teacher is the Moon!  Having guided the Heart to first dwell unshakably in what it loves and envisions (Trump XII), the Moon then entices the heart to savor the experience of empowerment of its visions by the Divine Source.

For some people, this uncommon revelation of scintillating feelings between the self and the Divine may be a breath of fresh air.  Classical Persian and Urdu poets recount such relationships in their poetry to the “Beloved” with feelings of love and longing so palpable that to this day the poems are used in modern love songs.  The inseparability of lovers is the sense of the relationship described in Trump XI — the self and its talents longing for the inspiration to offer them fully to humanity, and the Divine longing to re-absorb its own creation that had gotten lost and confused while wandering in the material world.

The subject of wandering in confusion brings up the opposite subject of useful adventure symbolized in the Queen of Disks‘ imagery.  The Queen of Disks is the other assistant for Trump XI work that this Full Moon supports. By seeing only half of the Queen’s face in the image, we come to understand that she has some quieter qualities that have played an equal part in helping her on the way through her long journey, the pathway of which we can see in the barren distance behind her.  Although the path was barren, the destination was fertile and nourishing.  The adventure to reach that place was not only useful but necessary.  This Full Moon supports the Heart in embarking on necessary adventures that further the work of taking the charismatic, talented will in the direction of the Divine.

To go forward with the support of the Full Moon: Continue to believe in the unconventional wisdom of the Heart and note what inspirations it has been having since the April New Moon.  Reflect on how it would feel to have Divine power flowing into those inspirations, and use chanting, rattling, or drumming to initiate sessions of prolonging that feeling.  Meditate on the image of Trump XI to use art as a bridge to a spiritual experience.  Finally, put some thought towards identifying an adventure that serves the purpose of leading away from an environment that does not nourish the Heart’s gifts.  The mind may not know where the destination is, but if the intention is to arrive in a fertile environment, the Heart will feel its way forward, step by step.  The Divine will also be ecstatically happy to help.

Blessings.

Question:  How does this New Moon support the Heart?

The Spread (click on card name to view image or scroll down to view spread):

10 of Disks

XII Trumps

III Trumps

Interpretation:

Sometimes the Heart is working on very deep transformation and it calls for support from its team members.  This New Moon answers the Heart’s call with special support, in that it is very related to the support offered at last New Moon.  A recurring card in the center of the spread (Trump XII) shows that the Heart and its guides are still processing the experience of surrendering the the qualities symbolically associated with the element of water.  The cards to the left and right of the central card expand anew on how the experience can be fully understood.  With the occurrence of a card from the suit of Disks to the left, there is an indication that some of the work can be assisted by action in the world of physical objects.  With the appearance of Trump III on the right, there is an indication that some of the work can be assisted by applying oneself to healing activities for the self or others.

A New Moon’s creates an occasion to plant new seeds and work with lunar support in bringing them to fruition.  Using a Tarot reading as part of New Moon rituals creates an opportunity to prolong the time spent in the experience of the cards, and in this case, in the experience of Trump XII.  Since I expanded on the details of Trump XII in the April New Moon reading, I will now summarize those details and then simply share how this card opens into a deep, positive experience for me.

My most favorite symbols in Trump XII are the following:  1) the crucifixion nails and the disks they drive into (will focusing on the law of Love, 2) the figure’s legs in a posture of a cross over the figure’s arms in a posture of a triangle (love over power), 3) the paradox of being nailed to water (I have to make conscious effort to stay in my own deep waters, and 4) the snake inside a womb (a transformation is underway that I can not control).  These symbols speak of commitment to qualities of the soul that resonate with the Spirit of Water such as intuition, compassion, healing, nurturing, creativity, and interconnection.  For me personally, tears come to my eyes when I think of how important it is to abide by love for humanity, this Earth and my own spirit.  Such things as civil rights movements, plans to provide clean water and adequate food to the people of the world, works of art or writings that strive to unravel man’s inhumanity to man, and initiatives to conserve the earth-oriented cultures of indigenous people are all dear to me.  Furthermore, I am in awe of individuals famous and completely unknown who work to put love back on the short list of why they do what they do.

Having said that, the lesson that I have come to associate with Trump XII is the lesson of considering a new direction that also uses more of who I am.  As I continue to grow and deepen as a person, I have more of the Spirit of Water qualities to offer.  However, the world seems to undervalue those qualities in modern times.  Therefore, I may get stuck in a rut thinking that the way to survive is to over-use my mental and physical abilities, and forget about the rest.  Trump XII reminds me that I’ve got it upside down, and that the way to survive is to commit to who I am and use that to generate support and transformation.  Fortunately, according to Trump XII, this transformation of consciousness is not up to my little brain to resolve.  If I just do my part to make a commitment, there would be assistance with my inner work.  Also, as we can see by the card’s recurrence in the New Moon spreads, the New Moon itself will be my assistant for bringing the inner work to bear fruit.

The other cards in the reading also are very aligned with this lesson.  The 10 of Disks speaks of looking in a new direction for what to do with extra wealth.  Even though the image shows a tree of coins, still the bottom coin is black as if the foundation of the whole tree is going to decay so that it can be renewed.  The mind makes plans for “money management.”  What plans does the Heart make?  Getting the mind to participate in the Soul’s agenda could start with an exercise of putting the Heart in charge of “the Treasury” for a day.

Trump III reinforces the wisdom of committing to the qualities of the self symbolized by the water element.  The colors of this card are very similar to Trump XII, with just a little more red.  This image speaks of a stage of development in alchemical tradition, in which the soul has undertaken enough purifying austerities to create healing and psychically nurturing qualities.  In other words, this card is giving a “two thumbs up” to the Trump XII work the Heart is doing.  It furthermore suggests putting those qualities forth to flourish because they have been purged of the desire to use them to create wealth and fame for the ego.

What to do going forward: Use the occasion of the New Moon to do vision board work about what qualities symbolized by the water element could be better integrated into day to day life.  Give the Heart an affordable dollar amount that it could use according to its own wisdom.  Within 48 hours of the occurrence of New Moon, consecrate with vision board work or your own ritual a baby step commitment to moving forward as a whole person who is aware of his/her own qualities symbolized by the element of water.

Blessings.

Question:  How does this Full Moon support the Heart?

The Spread (click on card name to view image or scroll down to view spread):

Princess of Wands

Trump XIV

4 Disks

Interpretation:

This Full Moon supports any efforts the Heart has made to create a new life that has more fullness and wholeness than the old life.  To reveal this new life, the Heart also receives the Full Moon’s support to show one’s unique qualities and to plan a definite way to go forward with them.

In the first card of the spread, the Princess of Wands ascends before a fire altar.  She wears a tiger crest, and she herself flies upward unclothed in a flame.  With brilliant yellow and orange, this cards represents the Full Moon’s support of any effort to show one’s unique and exotic qualities. If one wonders what those may be, the mind will not offer insight, but the Heart will, and prayer will as well.

There is a greater process at work that the first card supports. In the second card, Trump XIV shows a representation of the great Hunter goddesses such as Diana (Roman) and Artemis (Greek).  Diana/Artemis’ symbols are present: there are two bows at the top of the image, an arrow over the heart of the image, and three columns of breasts revealed in the open neckline of the figure’s garment.  The numerous breasts of this goddess symbolize fertility, which indicates new life.  Paradoxically, however, this goddess is a virgin.

In another paradox, the theme of creating new life while removing old life arises.  Diana/Artemis as a hunter goddess protects nature and the small animals.  As a master archer given her bow and arrow by her father Zeus/Jupiter, she also has the strength, courage, and independence (not distracted by love trysts) to engage in battle and kill.  This teaches us about appealing to the spirit of prosperity (Jupiter). If Diana/Artemis’ aim is to create new life, her required skill is to remove the old one to make room.

Consistent with Diana/Artemis’ paradoxes, other symbols and alchemical knowledge in the image support the sense that new life is on the brink of hatching, and that the means of identifying and disposing what is old are underway.  First, there is a fully incubated Orphic Egg glowing large behind the figure, like a full moon.  On the egg is the Latin alchemical motto, “Visit the interior parts of the earth: by rectification, thou shalt find the hidden stone.”  What is in the egg’s interior?

Actually, the Diana/Artemis figure in front of the egg is showing the work of the egg’s interior.  The figure seems to be a union of two opposite but equal beings.  On each side, a being with a light/dark face has assimilated the other so that the hair and the exposed arm are the other’s color.  Second, the lion and the eagle have exchanged colors completely, These adaptations show that the goddess of independence and new life has created a new being by understanding and welcoming characteristics of herself which had not been recognized or deemed valuable before.  The “hidden stone” that is found through “rectification” speaks of a worthwhile and solid substance that may have been disregarded and invalidated previously.

More work is also underway in the egg, which relates to the timing in which the new life within would hatch out.  Instead of hatching out when it has overgrown the interior space, this being must discover a solution to dissolving what came before.  This makes sense because there has to be a consistent way live, not a back and forth between an old way and a new way.  Thus, the figure is mixing water and fire in a cauldron bearing an image of a raven sitting upon a human skull.  This shocking image represents the alchemical process of putrefaction.  Simply put, putrefaction is about rotting away, which is what living matter does when the life force has gone.  The egg will hatch when the contents of the cauldron are ready.  The new life will begin when the rotten old life has been appropriately mourned (water of emotion) and released (fire of liberation).

The third card confirms that this new life taking form deep within the Self definitely is meant to show practically in the world by way of planning.  The 4 of Disks speaks of making a plan, and fortifying it against unwelcome attacks.  The image shows an overhead view of a square castle with four towers and a moat all around.  One bridge across the moat is clear.  There are other doors in the walls of the castle, there are other roads from the land that stop at the moat, but there is only one obvious entrance/exit to the castle.  There is a need for a plan to put the new life from Trump XIV into motion while also defending it from attack.

What to do to while this Full Moon supports this spread:

Within 48 hours of this Full Moon, reflect on what new life has been growing within for some time, and create feelings for that life through ceremonial acts including dance, music, song, and artwork.  When a sense of one’s own unusual or exotic characteristics occurs, welcome those by promising to create a simple plan in which the characteristics will be used in real life. This plan does not need to be complicated by high expectations,  It just needs to be a solid, persistent, unyielding plan to give new characteristics a safe place to shine.  On the next New Moon, initiate the plan.  Seeds are sown at New Moon, not Full Moon, but the time between now and New Moon could be sufficient planning time and time for the rotting process in the alchemical cauldron to complete.

Blessings.
