Our spotlight illuminates the I-Ching, or The Book of Changes. This ancient manuscript from Chinese history provides impeccable wisdom and practical guidance as both a reference philosophical text and a resource for divination attuned to spiritual growth.
This October New Moon in Scorpio, so close to Halloween, is the perfect time to discuss Key XIII of the Major Arcana, traditionally entitled Death.
The truth of the Death card is in taking the step beyond what was and into what we have chosen.
We center our spotlight on the Tarot - specifically, the Major Arcana’s Key XII entitled (traditionally) The Hanged Man. The attributes of this card include the element of Water and energies from the planet Neptune - in mythology, god of the sea with attributes of war and connections to the Underworld (much like Pluto).
There is a system of energy-work and natural healing that swept across the Pacific to Hawaii and continued into the mainland United States called ReiKi in the second half of the 20th century. Thanks to “New Age” and spiritual movements throughout the 1970s and ‘80s, ReiKi has gained both popularity and accessibility with many holistic healing practitioners and spiritual teachers. From the Japanese, ReiKi loosely translates to “life force channel”, and is the practice of doing just that to promote healing, health and wellness by utilizing the natural homeostatic and immune responses of the body.
It's that time of year when we harvest what the Earth has provided based on our efforts and what we've attuned to in the Earth. The Autumn Equinox arrives in the northern hemisphere with, hopefully, some milder weather and cooler breezes, clearer night skies, and an abundance of things having come to fruition and ready for us to appreciate.
In the spirit of the season, my friend Kristina and I have been crafting some fun things thanks to her generous gifting and creative spirit.
*** HAPPY FULL MOON IN LIBRA & LUNAR ECLIPSE ***
What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from. – T. S. Eliot
~ The Core Theme of this Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse:
* Moving into the future with Balance, Fairness and Consideration *
*** HAPPY FULL MOON IN VIRGO ***
There is a combination of healing and ease being resourceful during the Full Moon in Virgo.
Take extra care and attention to be efficient with whatever you are doing now.
In astrology, the sign of Virgo is an earth element and mutable mode of energy expression. One of the wonderful qualities of Virgo is the ability to organize, sort out and bring order to things. Virgo also represents healing, health and nutrition.
*** HAPPY FULL MOON IN TAURUS *** November 2014
The Full Moon in Taurus brings attention towards the practical, physical and tangible things in life.
Taurus is an earth element and fixed mode of expression. Through the highest potential of Taurus, each learns to appreciate, value and feel worthy.
The Full Moon in Taurus at its potential suggests emotional self-worth, solid lasting value and being full grounded and present to various emotions so they impart the wisdom and thus keep the emotional level flowing.

It can be difficult with most divination tools that require a certain amount of interpretation to discern & discriminate where one’s personal and subjective bias ends and his/her clear-connection to the Divine begins. It takes practice, honesty, integrity, healing, and meditation to achieve that kind of clarity with any consistent outcomes. That’s why people who do use focus tools must be well-versed with the tool and constantly in-practice, willing to learn more about themselves, their techniques, and how Spirit works with them through the tool.
The sciences can be a little bit easier, Scientific Palmistry, Astrology, and Numerology – for example. But, even these sciences lend themselves to a discerning interpretation that can only be as good as the individual “reading” the data offered.
