Theme For The Week: Major Arcana on Monday- The Moon

Because, really, why not?  I draw The Moon over and over on Mondays, which I find endlessly amusing, and today the full Moon is in Taurus, my Sun sign.

Silver Era Tarot- The Moon
Taurus and Scorpio are opposites on the astrology chart,something I feel very deeply when dealing with my gorgeous, changeable, artistic, deeply sensitive daughter, who has four planets in Scorpio.

That opposition may cause this full Moon to be one that seems to pull us in different directions, as we are currently in the Sun sign of Scorpio.  However, they can certainly find common ground in the realm of sensuality.  Taurus, being ruled by Venus, is an earthy, lustful sort, and Scorpio rules over secret things, like sex.  Taurus probably doesn't care if the sex is secret or not, as long as they are getting it, but the tang of naughtiness probably enhances it for Scorpio, and the mystery of The Moon has its' own ethereal desire drifting through the picture.

The primal pull of The Moon this week will likely influence me heavily, no real surprise as on Thursday NaNoWriMo kicks off, and I am determined to produce a novella during this time.  My family deserves it.  I deserve it.  My talent deserves it.  Hell, I am going to go out on a limb and ay the whole world deserves to read what I have to write.

(I had surgery four days ago.  Most of you know that.  A discesctomy.  If this surgery does not do the trick, then it is a fusion I am looking at, an even more hellish prospect.  I feel like hell.  Warmed over.  But I feel better when I write.  So write I am going to.)
Inspirations for Survivors

I decided to pull a card from the wrenchingly beautiful  Inspirations for Survivors Deck, also by Aunia Kahn and Russel J. Moon, because those have been my go to cards while I have been healing, since August, too zoinked on pain meds to really tap into the parts of my mind that tarot needs, and the message for today was one of great comfort- "Even in chaos you can find peace."  The Moon is beautiful, the Moon is often still, but her energy is not always so peaceful.  This card is a message that my peace is my own domain, and I can find it if I desire.  My peace does not depend on the action, attitudes, or word of anyone else, and that is supremely potent.






These cards are from Silver Era Tarot  and Inspirations for Survivors by Aunia Kahn and Russell J. Moon, published by Schiffer Books.
