Cards of the day: 10 of Cups, 3 of Cups, and Death
Deck: The Fountain Tarot
Happy Friday the 13th! What a positively magical day. Not only is it a full moon in Pisces, but the moon is conjunct Neptune, while a powerful Sun-Mercury-Venus-Mars stellium in Virgo sits opposite that dreamy joining.
As we consider the impact of the Virgo-Pisces energy present in the polarity of today’s astrology, we see that both signs are concerned with the nature of the Whole. Virgo represents our presence with our earthly selves, the tending to the ins and outs of our bodies, in service of finding harmony within a greater whole. Pisces, on the other hand, represents the ethereal nature of that desire for harmony, the feeling and being of Oneness itself.
This full moon in Pisces reminds us that there is no separation between the celestial and the human. That we are too part of the cosmos. That we travel on a galactic journey of wonder and awakening. And it is our humanity that is the gateway to our magic. Indeed, embodiment is not a curse or punishment put upon us. It is a choice to awaken and evolve through our human communion with Spirit.
Today’s message from Spirit is that if it is meaning and healing that we seek, then it is our job to remember that we are the magic; to dissolve any illusions of separation between what we dream and who we are. It is our responsibility to draw our magic out from the mists and ground the work it takes our to make our spells become our reality. Whatever it is that we dream for our lives, now is the time to make room for the transformations that must take place to allow them to blossom.
As Alan Oken writes in his book Soul-Centered Astrology:
“The Ancient Wisdom Teachings tell us that there is no such thing as death; that is, utter and absolute annihilation. There is only mutation and transformation of matter, and the subsequent release of consciousness and spiritual essence for the purpose of creation. Pisces teaches the lesson that when the lower self is sacrificed…there is a continuum of life by which loving redemption - that is, the recognition and identification with the Soul - carries us into the transcendental life stream of immortality."
Today, make this sacrifice joyous. Call in your soul coven, cultivate your magical gifts, and make the dissolution of separation between Spirit and self an act of community. Get weird with god and be willing to be released from fears and limiting beliefs around your connection to Divine.
What can you celebrate today? How do you cultivate magic within yourself and within your relationships? How do you like to connect with your guides? Who is part of your soul coven? What limiting beliefs around your emotional self can you let go of today? Do you have any rituals or spell work planned?
