Eight of Wands
Hope leading to the attainment of innermost dreams and desires. Fuelling your soul with the belief in yourself and natural justice.
A coming together of the wishes, and intentions laid down earlier in the year.
An energised harvest that creates the warmth of regeneration. Happiness of the home, and visits of friends to your hearth in the winter. Generating a warmth at the heart of ones life.
Seven of Cups
A time to honour what is dead, to mourn for what has gone and to learn the lesson of letting go, offering thanks for memories and being at peace with the past
… a reminder of rebirth. Grief and mourning for a loss in one’s life. Necessary emotional release. An honouring and a respect for that death.
Six of Arrows
Travelling or movement toward new possibilities or cycles, possibly within yourself.
Possibly an anxious or testing time, but harnessing positive energies will add momentum.
You have turned your back on one phase of your life, and head towards a homecoming of the soul.
Travel. Moving home. An emotional retreat.
Three of Stones
An artist listens to the inner voice and hears the windsong of the universe. The courage, freedom and skill that allow the artist to mediate this energy must be refined.
Two stone pillars representing the primal gateway of dual energies, … bridged by a third, creating an environment in which an artist stands inspired but grounded, a mediator, alive and radiant.
Patience and prudence are the keywords here, although trust plays a large part in the process of crossing to the island where insights into your own unconscious workings will be revealed.
This process differs from The Hermit’s journey in the fact that The Hermit makes a conscious decision to withdraw and contemplate the universe but with Reflection a surrender of will is required.
Insights may come from dreams and meditations, but now is not the time to force the pace or drive on with a plan or desire until you have heard what your soul has to say about it and your bruised and wounded spirit has been healed.
Be patient. Let the journey commence and awaken afresh and full of energy ready to deal with the world and the challenges it raises.
When the foundation of one’s life seems to have collapsed beneath you, you can seek sanctuary in Reflection from the emotional intensity of The Blasted Oak.
Reflection is concerned with sacred mysteries…
In a reading this card indicates profound healing, a period of introspection, healing, immersion in myths and visions, stellar lore, conception, learning about yourself.
The Moon heralds a time of inner transformation, initiation or awareness. This may take the form of a seemingly ran-dom situation based in the emotional or spiritual spheres, but your inner voice may have been whispering for some time and gone unheeded.
Now your soul brings into your physical world the symbolic keys to the collective human subconscious. This may take the form of a desire to explore or study a doctrine, philosophy or esoteric pursuit, or the wish to explore untapped sexual energy and experience a tighter spiritual bond with a partner through honesty and the expression of your hidden desires.
From here you can begin to wrestle with the concept that consciousness is not within you, but you are within the consciousness of the uni-verse.
The Moon in a tarot pack is really concerned with the dark moon, not the waning moon, but the true last phase of the moon, when it cannot be seen at all.
