Want to Know About the Full Moon in Capricorn and the Lunar Eclipse? (7/16/19)

Image
July 16 is an astrologically eventful night, bringing us a full buck moon and partial lunar eclipse. What does that all mean? Let’s break it down. First, each month's full moon has different traditional names. According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, July’s full moon is called the buck moon or thunder moon, because it coincides with the time of year when a buck’s antlers are full grown and thunderstorms are frequent. Next, a lunar eclipse only occurs during a full moon. It happens when the sun, moon, and Earth align in such a way that the Earth’s shadow moves over the face of the moon. This month brings us a partial lunar eclipse, so the Earth’s shadow will be seen on only part of moon. While much of the world — including most of Australia, Africa, South America, Europe, and Asia — will be able to see the partial lunar eclipse, the majority of North America is out of luck. A total lunar eclipse is sometimes called a blood moon, because of the reddish tinge that can sometimes be see…

Timing is always tricky when doing a spread for a client. I have always relied on my intuition for this just like with other elements of the reading. The timing of a specific event is usually a secondary question the client has and most of us probably pull out additional cards for clarification and set those to the side of the spread we are doing after the question is raised. This is how symbology can be used to our advantage. The topic of timing is a huge and never ending study for tarot aficionados. Tarot decks are being created continually with new art, colors, symbols, court cards, suit representations to give us hints and clues. In our standard Rider Waite or Smith Waite--based decks, symbology is determined by the clues we have within the images on the cards; the numbers, the flowers, trees, the sky, including clouds, rain, animals, birds, angels, darkness, light, various colors and the elements themselves that are represented by pentacles…

This is the Cadillac of the Rider-Waite or Waite-Colman Decks...the Radiant Wise Spirit Tarot Deck!

Superbly packaged in a sturdy box, these are standard Tarot sized cards, border-less, shiny card-stock and easy to shuffle. Not antiqued but with that old school look and design and the use of the original woodcut drawings by Pamela Colman Smith. 

The colors are different, more bold and the backgrounds utilize stunning shades and tints making for more three dimensional art. From what I understand, the art used for the original Rider Waite backs; a beautiful design of red roses and white lilies is what was used for this deck. 

This is now one of my go-to decks that I will always reach for when doing professional readings because they are so beautiful. The book is in several languages and includes upright and reverse meanings--more in depth than with a tiny white booklet. 

Simply put to collectors; this is one deck that will be a stand out in your collection. I always recommend that my Tarot students start with a Rider Waite or Waite-Colman-Smith deck--so this can also be a student's f…

It is that beautiful time of year when we are planting and starting seeds--literally and figuratively, things are growing and the green everywhere seems like a miracle. Intermittent rain showers are just as beautiful--every time it rains, the Goddess showers us with even more blessings. Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year is on it's way.

In certain cultures and traditions, both modern and in ancient times, the Sun is represented by the female, not the male gender. Amaterasu (Japanese), Beaivi (Sami), Bridget (Celtic), Ceres/Demeter (Greco-Roman), Sunna/Sol (Norse), Hathor and Sekhmet (Egyptian) and so many more come to mind.
A special HEALING SUN spread using the Tarot will be offered at a discount rate until the eve of Summer Solstice. What facets of your life need to be healed? A reading with this spread will clarify what options you have and shed some light on your pathway as you move forward. This is a twenty minute reading for $35.
