Tarot Tuesday: The Big Reveal for November 5, 2019

It's time for our Big Reveal! If you haven't done so, please go to the Wildly, Witch Facebook Page, and choose your card. For those who have, let's do this!

This week's decks are The Sun and Moon Tarot and The Luna Sol Tarot.  Please note: 
I have no affiliation with the creators or producers of any of these tarot decks. I make no money from promoting them.

Card 1: Death

Death is indicative of change in your future. This change can be in almost any aspect of your life, but it will almost certainly be permanent, significant, and absolute. Death suggests a complete severance between the past and the future, and it will likely be painful. 

Despite the sense of loss that may accompany it, Death fills an important and natural role in life, and leads eventually to acceptance. It is a necessary part of moving forward, and you will find the changes easiest if you embrace them, rather than fight them. 

Expect the end of a close friendship, a job, a marriage, or even a life, but focus on the rebirth side of this. These changes are for the better, and you will come to appreciate what has transpired.

Everything in life is cyclical, and death is simply a part of that cycle.

Card 2: The Moon

Traditionally, the moon tarot card is about deception, illusion, and all is not as it appears. In order to take you a little deeper into the Tarot, I want you to start looking at the cards themselves, and not just the generalized meaning. The artists who create these decks, do so for a reason.

Let’s look at the symbolism in the Luna Sol Tarot. Both the card’s layout and its order, falling between The Star and The Sun, provide guidance here. The strong, watery (subconscious) motif of the Star is here at the front of The Moon. And there, at the back of The Moon card, behind the mountains, is a doorway leading to The Sun, the conscious mind.

This is therefore very much an inner journey. There is often a sense of fear, symbolized by the two crumbling towers, but the moon can also provide guidance – see the two torches of Hecate, Greek Goddess of magic and crossroads. 

The crawdad in the foreground is a symbol of consciousness, awakening, and ego. The two animals on the route to the mountains are a wolf, representing nature; and a dog, representing the domesticated and more human adapted quality of art. 

The cycles of the moon around it’s main body showing the moons association including biorhythms, tides, and perhaps even the transition from life to death. It reminds us of the mutable, ever-changing nature of existence. 
Aside from the existential, it could literally mean that Mercury Rx is affecting your ability to see things as they are, or in obtaining clarity about a situation. Take a step back, look to a trusted adviser for assistance, and go deeper for meaning.

How did you do? Are you finding yourself getting better at this? How else can I assist you? Come, join me on the Facebook page, and let's discuss.
