Diana's Bow Moon Phase in Scorpio for September 30, 2019

Image
Welcome to the premiere of my new column for the Diana's Bow Moon Phase!
***You will be able to see this Moon if the sky is clear--in the western sky a few hours before sunset and it will remain there for a few hours after the Sun goes down. The Moon will appear as a crescent with the open end facing left--so the right side of the moon will be illuminated. Sometimes one will also be able to see the dark portion or dark side of the moon, appearing almost shadow-like and depending on the light in the sky.

***This forecast is for everyone, not just Scorpios. It is also important to know where Scorpio is on your Astrological Chart. It will take introspection to determine how this phase is unique to YOU.
The Moon will go from the New Moon (Dark Moon) in Libra on Saturday, September 28th, to a void of course Moon and then enter the watery sign of Scorpio at 9:41 AM UTC on September 30th, 2019 and that will be the beginning of the Diana's Bow Moon Phase.

New Moon in Libra for 2019! What surprises are in store for YOU?

Image
Well, here we are again and the months are flying by and getting us closer to 2020 and what that will bring for all of us! I have collected a few articles about this New Moon that I thought were informative and that you can glean personal information from. This month's New Moon is conjunct Mars so be aware of mysterious undercurrents that can end up being explosive and that you will need to deal with. All the while using tact and diplomacy as that is the equal and weighed out energy of Libra. Always think that when dealing with the sign of Libra--it notes what is FAIR for all. 
There will be a surprise with my next post and the initiation of a regular column on this site that will give you the energies surrounding the setting of intentions and initiating action on those. Stay tuned for so much more!
Here are those links on our New Moon in Libra today and have fun surfing! (Note: I select these blog posts and articles randomly--I may not agree with EVERYTHING they say...)

***(I am the last one on this TarotBlogHop so the "First Blog" hyperlink above will take you back to the first post so you can start at the beginning.) The colors are the most beautiful in the Fall Season. Warm browns, golds, yellows, purples, reds, oranges of all shades. Even reflected in the school buses and Number 2 pencils for the beginning of the school year. Fall Equinox and the celebration of Mabon marks an equal day and night of light and darkness. The Sun enters the sign of Libra, representing balance. Preparations are underway for stocking up food and supplies before the Dark Time of the year. Everyone waits for the brightly colored foliage to make it's much anticipated mark on the landscape. The second harvest is of fruits, vegetables on the vine and new wine. In myths and legends, the story of Ceres aka Demeter, Persephone and Hades represents Mabon. Ceres was the Earth Mother who represented agricul…

Anything You Want to Know About the Friday the 13th and the Harvest Full Moon in Pisces!

Image
I consider the number 13 to be a lucky and auspicious one and a Friday the 13th even better yet! A Full Moon in Pisces is an exalted one in Astrology, the watery depths of dream-time and the subconscious will be especially strong this weekend. Perfect for altered states! This Full Moon is a week before Mabon/Fall Equinox, the second celebration of the Harvest represented by the red and purple grapes for wine making and apples, the fruit of the Goddess! Known by the legends and stories world-wide and with the glorious star inside when you cut the fruit in half. I always think of mulled red wine with cinnamon and apple cobbler or pie at this time of year! 
(Lughnassad on the first of August is the First Harvest representing wheat and other grains, bread and beer.) The Harvest time concludes at Samhain, considered the third Harvest and the last chance to prepare for the dark time and the long winter. At Mabon/Fall Equinox next week, we focus our magickal work on the equal time of light …

Dreams of Gaia Tarot--Large or the Small, Pocket Sized?

Image
Well, it really depends on what you prefer. This is just a short comparison on both decks created by Ravynne Phelan. I love the Dreams of Gaia Tarot, the art work is stunning and the restructuring of the Major Arcana just works for me when doing professional readings. You can find a description of the restructuring of the Major Arcana of this deck HERE
Sometimes this deck is more oracle in nature and some of the meanings of the cards are different than the standard Rider-Waite-Colman-Smith based decks, but that doesn't seem to matter when one is reading them in a spread and using one's intuition to divine the blending of the cards. I was drawn to the sigils for the elements and the use of them in lieu of the traditional suits of the Tarot deck.
My favorite difference in favor of the pocket edition is the lack of borders so the art really pops on the smaller deck! Also the pocket edition has the matte type of paper stock; the large deck uses shiny paper stock and the cards f…

A thin but very comprehensive book on how to read regular playing cards...

Image
Love this book--A Deck of Spells--Hoodoo Playing Card Magic in Rootwork and Conjure! A really great source on cartomancy--using an easily accessible deck of playing cards for divination and simple spell-work. Easily organized to help one learn the meanings of each card for readings to include: the pips and court cards (people or their personalities or qualities) and lots of intriguing history and facts. The spell instructions are varied--for almost every purpose under the Sun and easy to do with items you can get right from a grocery or craft store. Southern lore, hoodoo and root-work predominate in these spells...you don't need to pay anyone to do your spells for you when you can do them yourself--this is much more ethical and teaches you how to set your own intentions! Highly recommend this book if you want to learn these secrets and a great addition to one's spiritual library!

I will be reading the Tarot at the Witches Ball in Pittsburgh on 11/9/19! See all you witchy folks there!
