TAROTSCOPES for the week of 12/04/14


Turbulent times often remind me of my grandfather's unique way of giving thanks before meals, "Thank you for the wind and rain and sun and stormy weather.  Thank you for the food we eat and that we are together."  It pointed out the way that all kinds of weather are in inextricable, the sun always appears to shine brighter following a storm and wind and rain precipitate change.   

I will discuss more of the astrological specifics below under the card for the week- The World!

Without further ado! The general card from Amy von Harrington’s deck for all, for all the week (individual cards for the zodiac signs are pulled from the MOTHERPEACE deck):


Astrologer, Rhea Wolf, quoted Arundhati Roy in her latest full-moon blog post saying, “Another world is not only possible, she is on her way.  On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.”  Winter Solstice, the longest night of the year, is fast approaching.  Historically, in cold climates the Winter Solstice was a celebration, but also a prayer for strength in surviving the harsh winter.  Right now the Sun, Mercury and Venus are all in the fire sign of Sagittarius.  This week, Jupiter, Sagittarius’ ruling planet, stations in the fire sign of Leo before moving retrograde.  Jupiter is the planet of faith and hope (among other things).  Following the recent court decision not to indict the police officer who killed Eric Garner in New York, it is easy to feel defeated, to lose hope and faith in the future, especially since the decision comes on the heals of a similar injustice in the trial of Wilson in Ferguson.  Fire is the element associated with anger, an emotion injustice ignites.  Fire is fast and transformative.  Every flash of anger you feel can be added to the pyre of injustice and racial inequality.
Fire needs air to burn and on Saturday a Full Moon in the air sign of Gemini will square Chiron in Pisces (another planet whose traditional ruler is Jupiter) providing an opportunity to heal our wounds around loss of faith and hope.  The Mercurial signs (Gemini and Virgo) can, on a bad day, appear jaded and bitter and with Chiron (planet of wounds and healing) in the picture this tendency may be exaggerated.  Allow this Full Moon to illuminate the places where you have detached or disconnected from your emotions, perhaps as a previous instinctual act of self preservation, but which no longer serves that function and may only isolate us from one another and the world we want to create.  Now is the time to acknowledge the nuance of emotion and our own intuitive and collective wisdom allowing us to dream into existence a future we can all inhabit.  
Sagittarius season and Winter Solstice reminds us to believe and have faith that a new world is on the way.  And we have the opportunity to breathe life into that new world every time we take a stand against the old.
