Tarot

Tarot has been used as a tool for divination for decades. The original deck was created by the founders of the alchemist brotherhood, the Secret Order of the Golden Dawn, and has never been released to the public. Three members of the Golden Dawn were instructed to create their own interpretations of the original tarot deck. Those decks are the Rider-Waite by Arthur Edward Waite, the Thoth by Aleister Crowley, and the B.O.T.A. (Builders of the Adytum) by Paul Foster Case. All other tarot decks stem from these three utilizing their own symbology and interpretation of each card. Regardless of the esoteric meanings and depictions, every deck has a Major Arcana and Minor Arcana.

The Major Arcana 

The Major Arcana consists of 22 cards. They are the foundation of the journey we all must go through to reach spiritual awareness. The fool is the first card of the Major Arcana and is often unnumbered. Each card represents major life changes, integral people in our life, or ingrained aspects of our higher selves. The main phases of life consisting of both struggles and successes are captured in these cards. Symbols in each card give more insight and meaning to the general picture. Whether we feel the Tower of our lives crumbling beneath our feet, or the warmth of the Sun shining down on us encouraging each step; we are being guided with love and light.

The Star 

The Star is the 27th card in the Major Arcana of the Tarot. This card represents our hopes, dreams, and desires that we wish to come to fruition. The Star brings us inspiration and renewal as we begin to realize we have been achieving what we have longing for over time. During this realization we become filled with confidence and comfort in knowing we are capable of ensuring our needs are met. This surge of empowerment will be felt within as our light begins to shine with an effervescently blinding beauty. Other people will feel this warmth and begin looking within to find their own. Since we are all allowing our inner flame to billow and overtake the darkness of our hearts, there is a powerful awakening occurring on a collective conscious level. We are all finding paths in our lives that were not outlined as clearly before. These paths are extending from our souls, and our hearts beat to the rhythm of every step we take. We are balanced in harmony connected to our higher, true self which is directly linked to the source. As we open our eyes we are being flooded with an abundance of love, light, and warmth. With this comes compassion, empathy, softness, and a more complacent way of being creating serenity in every moment. The Star is propelling us forward to our souls purpose as we begin residing in our true bodies – our souls.

This book has taught me to appreciate the simplicity of life and gratitude for everything around me and inside of me. We are so busy pushing, trying, and struggling daily to “make things happen.” Once we are able to let go and allow the ebb and flow of the natural energies and divine timing to work in our favor, we are able to be serene, happy, and receiving. It is amazing how much the little things really do add up in positive and negative ways based on how we perceive it. We let work, other people, finances, and so much more get in the way of what’s truly important in life. Yes, we must be responsible and take care of what needs to be taken care of, however, this is not the extent of our purpose on this earth. Life is to be enjoyed with loved ones and love is to be extended to all including ourselves! We deserve the best that life has to offer because we work hard, have moral standards, and allow everything out of our control to just be. I have been able to reduce my stress and anxiety with the help of these teachings and I advise everyone to give this book a read!⠀⠀

Taurus New Moon 2017

What is a New Moon?

A new moon is when the sun and moon are in conjunction with one another and there is no light reflecting from the sun onto the moon making it appear as if there is no moon in the sky. Since the sun and moon are pulling from the same direction our subconscious is able to surface to the forefront of our conscious mind. Our true dreams and desires express themselves to help guide us on our path and fulfill our life’s purpose. This lunar phase is the end of one cycle and the beginning of another allowing for a fresh start. It is often an opportune time to set our intentions to manifest what is needed to reach our goals whether it is buying a house, finding the perfect job that resonates with our soul, or taking a well needed vacation. Both the sun and moon will be in the astrological sign of Taurus amplifying both the masculine and feminine energies of this sign.

Taurus – The Earth Bull

Taurus is an earth sign making them hardworking, stable, logical, and oftentimes stubborn companions. The bull is also a fixed modality. Fixed signs are the strong foundations of the zodiac, who preserve tradition and are loyal and dependable. Venus is the ruling planet over Taurus, and represents love, nurturing, money, pleasure, and values. The new moon in Taurus is encouraging us to really figure out where we want to build a solid foundation, what we want to fill its contents with, and how we plan on going about our construction. Having the suns presence is the push we need to really make these tangible blueprints a reality. What areas of your life need stabilizing? Write out the logical steps to create this life you want. Remember that even baby steps are a form of movement. Be loving and nurturing toward yourself during this process. Enjoy the work you put into your manifestations, and allow yourself time to relax and recharge. Sturdy foundations take time, so have faith that divine timing is serving you and your higher purpose.

Master Builder 22

The date of this new moon in Taurus (4/26/17) adds up to equal the master builder number, 22, allowing us to build strong foundations and relationships through balance, harmony, expansion, and evolution. 22 enhances our ability to manifest our highest ideals and desires, and to work diligently on our life path to accomplish our soul’s purpose. The master builder is amplifying what the sun and moon in Taurus are urging all of us to do – begin again from the bottom. Look around you for signs from the infinite, divine universe, and explore within to create and build upon your greatest aspirations. We are being propelled forward by the many forces of the moon, the universe, the zodiac, numerology, our spirit guides, and most importantly, ourselves! The time is now to utilize all of these amazing synchronicities to our advantage by harnessing our intuition and innate talents. Allow yourself to explore every aspect of who you are to express your essence creatively building the infrastructure of your life.

Ground Your Soul

“Tahoe” by Eternal Waking Beauties

This is a time of planting ourselves and our lives firmly into the earth, and Smokey Quartz is a spiritual grounding stone. It pulls out and purifies negative energy from the aura, which we need while manifesting the lives we deserve. Sometimes it’s scary making changes, especially drastic ones that shift the very foundation we have found comfort and security even if it does not resonate with our true desires. Smokey Quartz also helps one be more engaging and able to make necessary change in their lives. Grant yourself the strength and empowerment to make these transformations to manifest the life you have always wanted!
