The Moon: Weekly Tarotcast™ – Free Tarot Reading
9-15-20 through 9-22-20
The Moon is this week’s Tarotcast card. Lots of people find this card spooky. It can be, since it invites and draws us deep into the world of the unconscious, sleep, and dreams – or nightmares.
This week challenges us to overcome fear, the “dark night of the soul” that The Moon card represents. Be willing to make your journey with courage. You can use the symbols and images of your dream-state to master the waking world. Emotion and intuition run strong this week. Things are not what they appear to be. But then again, the challenge – both practical and spiritual – is to acknowledge our fear and move forward. Repression or denial creates a nightmare landscape. Acknowledgement and acceptance bring the mysterious and unknown to light.
On the Tree of Life, The Moon card travels path 29. It joins sephiroth or sphere 7, Netzach (Victory); sphere of Venus, the masculinized Yin. with sephiroth or sphere 10, Malkuth (Kingdom). Malkuth represents our material, physical world. The Moon card’s Hebrew letter is Qoph, which means the back of the head. In our physical brain anatomy, the back of the head is the location of the occipital lobes. They are responsible for our visual perception systems. Disorders or diseases affecting the occipital lobe can cause visual hallucinations and illusions. This is in keeping with the nature of the Moon and its elusive – and sometimes deceptive – energy.
The Moon card is the zodiacal trump of Pisces where Jupiter and Neptune rule and Venus is exalted.
In real-time astrology, the Sun completes it’s transit of Earth-sign Virgo. Virgo is Pisces’ polar opposite on the wheel of the Zodiac. Jupiter is now direct in Earth-sign Capricorn. This boosts our self-confidence. We make major progress on projects. Practical use of knowledge helps us balance the energy of this week’s card.
Neptune is retrograde in its home sign of Pisces. During September, we can channel our inspiration into physical work and creativity. This is a choice. The other side is escaping reality by idle fantasy and daydreaming. With the energy of this week’s card, your choice will be more challenging.
“If you believed they put a man on the moon (man on the moon), if you believed there’s nothing up his sleeve, then nothing is cool…”
The September 17th New Moon in Virgo encourages us to take an active role in our lives. Edit, purge, organize. Refine your work and attend to your health goals. We benefit from routines. This is productive and fertile energy, so make sure you are nurturing that which serves you best.
Misuse, darkening or the shadow energy of this card includes succumbing to fear. Hysteria. Paranoia. Indulging in drugs or alcohol to escape reality. Any or all these can only worsen matters and trap us in a hall of mirrors.
Let’s focus on trusting to our intuitive knowledge. Deep understanding brings great rewards this week. Connect your dreaming and dreamlike intuition to your waking consciousness. In this way, we can turn dreams – rather than nightmares – into reality.
Power colors: crimson, silver, black and silver-flecked white. Violet and pale blue-green.
Power stones: emeralds, amethyst, aquamarine and sapphire. Wear these as jewelry or carry as power stones for courage and much-need illumination.
Power metal: tin. Not great for wearing, but a good reminder in this way. Treatment with a coating of tin prevents other metals from corrosion. We can use our waking consciousness to protect the powerful energy of our intuition.
Power fragrances: heliotrope, carnation, opium and belladonna. These will help us stay tuned into and focused on the light in the darkness.
Power foods: foods prepared with members of the nightshade family – tomatoes and peppers. Also, foods made with poppy seeds, lotus root and coconut. Tea brewed from jasmine or wintergreen. All provide the same beneficial effects already described.
