Tarot spread for the September 2019 full moon in Pisces

The September 2019 full moon falls in the sign of Pisces. The Pisces archetype is highly intuitive and very open to the flow of creative imagination. This is the sign of creative dreamers and mystics and visionaries, which makes this full moon an excellent time to flex your creative and intuitive muscles.

Spiritually, the Pisces archetype teaches the principle of unity, of recognising the divinity within you. One way to understand this principle is by looking at creation – the creator {God, Universe, Source, however you wish to name it} created this Earth, the rivers and seas, the trees, birds, insects, animals, man. Similarly, man has the ability to create – and to create consciously. It is this ability that points to the spiritual truth of Pisces, that we are spiritual beings having a human experience. It is by accepting responsibility for consciously creating that you connect most deeply with the creator. Needless to say, empathy and compassion are the cornerstones of the Pisces archetype.Continue reading

April 2019: Tarot spread for the full moon in Libra

Full moon in Libra tarot spread and astro-tarot forecast

The April 2019 full moon rises in the sign of Libra, again! This is quite a rare occurrence, to have two back to back full moons in the same sign. Think back to what happened around the March full moon Libra. Whatever started then, will culminate now, for both of these full moons are connected.

The Libra archetype is associated with balance, fair dealings, and relationships. Spiritually, the Libra archetype can teach us about balance…the ability to remain centered  in our authentic self no matter what is going on around us.

While the last Libra full moon asked us to focus on our rituals and routines and to align them to bring some balance in our lives, the April full moon asks us to bring balance with our relationships. And the key to this is focusing on our own self-worth and examining our life from a more personal perspective – what can be called a journey of individuation. It’s an ever spiraling journey, as we define and refine our meaning and purpose and come into right relationship with who we are and how we choose to shine our unique light in our interactions with  others.Continue reading
