Release what no longer serves your soul and make room for new beautiful abundance to flow in.
Tarot deck is Dreams of Gaia Tarot by, Ravynne Phelan
1-6 is what you need to Eclipse out during this New Moon.
1 ~ The Mother
Her womb is the void in which new life forms, safe, nurtured, and protected by her body. She is the earthly universe in which a cosmic soul takes on physical form. There is no more sacred or intimate bond than that of mother and child.
She is the Mother – nurturer, protector and creator. She is the very essense of non-sexual intimacy, patience, compassion, unconditional love, and forgiveness – willing to place the needs of her child before her own. Nor is that love reserved for only child born of her womb, for the highest ideal of the Mother is a woman who extends her unconditional love to all who dwell in the world around her, without question of whether or not that love is deserved. The Mother gives without hesitation or reservation.
She is both teacher and guide, encouraging her children to reveal and nurture their talents. In this way, she gifts them with healthy levels of self-belief, self-esteem and confidence.
The Mother is also symbolic of a fertile and abundant mind – a mind where ideas take root. The Mother is willing to nurture those ideas and provide what is necessary in order for them to grow and blossom.
2 ~ The Youth
Sweet-faced and beguiling, the Youth has left the security of home and hearth without a backward glance. He is alone, but confident in the knowledge that a loving and supportive family will be there if he has need of them.
On a quest for adventure and discovery, he seeks the excitement of the new and unknown in distant lands.
Following whispers and rumor, he takes risks with little thought or care. His choice is to live in the moment. The past is left behind, while thoughts of the future rest only as far as his next journey. Every adventure gives him a greater knowledge of the world and his place in it.
Believing himself both immortal and infallible, he often acts spontaneously, using his charm and enthusiasm to win him favor and release him from strife. He rebels against sage advice to use restraint or caution. As far as the Youth is concerned, the greater the risk, the more rewarding the outcome.
The only loyalty he shows is to those companions who journey with him. Those who are loyal to the quest will have his loyalty in return, while those who seek to curb and restrict him will be met with resistance. Those who share his passions and interests are ‘right’, while those who do not are ‘wrong’. There are no shades of gray. The Youth sees all in black and white.
The Youth also seeks the freedom to find his own answers. Tradition be damned; life is too short to follow in another’s footsteps, and do things their way. The Youth will do things his way without thought for the consequences. His concern is for today. Tomorrow can take care of itself.
3 ~ Thought
Cogito ergo sum…I think, therefore I am.
This simple statement, expressed by René Descartes, is a founding principle of Western philosophy. It means if one questions one’s existence, the very act of doubting and then questioning is proof that one does, indeed, exist.
But what if you are a figment of your own imagination or the imagination of a god mind? What if you were something else dreaming of being human – or only existing because someone, or something, is dreaming of you? We may think we are human. We may think we are real, possessing a solid, physical form. We may think our world is what it is, but, at a quantum level, research suggests that the world around us does not exist unless we focus our attention upon it. It does not become real, and remains fluid and changeable, until we give it substance, definition, and form.
You think the table or chair in front of you is there. Your senses and mind give it substance and form, and so therefore it is, but at a quantum level, the table does not exist until you focus your mind and attention upon it.
Thought creates reality.
Thought is the second, and one of the most dominant, of the influence cards in the deck, for thought, like emotion, will determine the direction of your life. Your thoughts, the way you think, shape and create the world around you.
What, and how, you think is as true a reflection of you as the face that looks back at you when you gaze in the mirror.
However, from a scientific standpoint, thought still remains a mystery. Neuroscientists are learning the mechanics of thought, but why it occurs is not yet known and can only be guessed at. Regardless of the way it operates, though, thought is a complex process that involves both the conscious and unconscious mind, and is the result of our senses being stimulated by, and reacting to, the environment in which we dwell. It is the product of mental activity. It is the manipulation of information in a manner that enables us to conceptualize, reason, work through problems, and make decisions.
Thoubht is at the very foundation of consiousness, and some would suggest that, without consciousness, we would not be human.
4 ~ Faith
To have faith – the seventh of the influence cards – is a beautiful thing. It inspires a feeling of serentiy that is unshakable. With faith comes a level of self-confidence that sees you capable of overcoming all that life throws at you. To have self-belief gives you confidence when facing new and challenging situations. When out in a social setting, you are comfortable to be yourself. Having self-belief allows you to enjoy life more because you are less troubled by insecurity.
With faith in yourself and your abilities, you stand a greater chance of having a successful career, you are more confident in taking well-considered risks, you are healthier and happier because you are under less pressure , and emotional and mental stress. In turn, your relationships with others will be better, also.
On the other hand, a lack of self-belief or faith can be seen in our moods, the way we speak about ourselves, our body language, and actions. Without faith, and belief in self, every decision can become an almost excruciating process.
If you do not believe that you will succeed or do well, then, sadly, there is an increased chance that you will not. Doubt and a lack of faith breeds mistakes, procrastination, and self-sabotage. But know this, you are not unimportant. You are somebody. You are unique. You have gifts. You have strengths. You have talents. You are bright with potential, and if you believe in yourself you will shine.
A little belief can go a long way. With faith and self-belief, you can accomplish great things…even miracles.
5 ~ Death/Rebirth
The Death/Rebirth card symbolizes cycles and change. Death/Rebirth is the death of the old and the birthing of the new. It is time to let go of the past and turn to face a new and unknown future with the awareness that there is no going back. It is time to begin again, sometimes with nothing but memories, and at other times with everything external unchanged, but with your mind so altered that everything seems different, strange and unfamiliar. It is a time to pass from one stage or state of being to another – and to be transformed so completely that the person undergoing the change no longer recognizes themselves. They are the caterpillar that has become a butterfly. An irreversible process of transmutation is complete. The person they were is forever gone, and they have been reborn. Life as they know it has changed.
Change can inspire many little painless deaths and sometimes great deaths born of intense loss that must be mourned before we can face the future with excitement and anticipation once more. The loss of a spouse or family member, the end of a long-term relationship or career, retirement, and illness are just a few experiences that can bring about a death and rebirth process.
Ours is a perpetual journey of undoing, being and becoming. The death preceding rebirth can be quick and sudden, or slow and painful. In the process of dying, everything in life revolves around the death …the pain, the suffering, the anguish, the loss, the guilt, the anger, and the fear. The pain can be so real it is debilitating. The fear can be so paralyzing that it halts all growth and has one withdrawing from life itself. We can cycle around, analyzing, questioning, preventing our wounds from healing, refusing to accept that life has changed, and there is nothing that can be done to restore it to what it was. That stage of life is over. There are only two choices – remain in limbo, or accept reality, surrender to death, and be reborn.
The rebirth process can also be problematic. It is not an instant process. Sometimes, before we can soar, we must also learn how to fly all over again. Yes, our outlook can be positive, but the future is still unknown. Our beliefs have changed. Our perception and understanding of the world around us have changed. Our roles and purpose have changed. Our lives, and state of mind, and being are not as they were. We know what we are capable of, but first we must learn and adapt to the changes that led to the little death in the first place.
The Death/Rebirth card is all about renewal, regerneration, and new beginning. Like the seasons, we are bound by a cycle of life, death, and rebirth. Like the planet we dwell upon, we experience seasons and stages – spring, summer, autumn and winter.
Spring is a time of new growth, summer a time of fruition, autumn a time of letting go and dying, and winter a time of dormancy and regeneration. Autumn and winter can inspire feelings of loss and fear, We fear death and change because we do not know what comes after; but the truth is that we do know – but we are so accustomed to life as it is now, that the idea of anything different creates resistance. There is, however, no halting change, and just as we know and trust that spring will follow winter, we can know and trust that after death we will be reborn.
Death is just a gateway to a new reality, a new stage of your life journey, while rebirth is symbolic of an evolving and expanding consciousness.
6 ~ Abundance
What is Abundance? Abundance is defined as a state of plenty. When the Abundance card appears, it signifies a feeling of abundance, of appreciation, that opens you to the abundance that surrounds you. In turn, this feeling gives rise to an abundance consciousness. A person with an abundance consciousness is one who is always hopeful, seeks a fair and equal exchange of energy, and sees potential and opportunity in all experiences.
To create and open ourselves to abundance and embrace an abundance consciousness is our seventh reason for being, and, potentially, one of the more challenging purposes, because it requires absolute faith and conviction. It requires complete trust.
Abundance consciousness is a state of contentment and fulfillment that is not influenced by external factors. Regardless of whether the experience was good or bad, one with an abundance consciousness sees the whole experience and learns from the whole experience.
Abundance embodies a way of living that does not change, regardless of whether you have more or less in your life. Abundance cannot be earned, given, bestowed, or taken away; it is contentment born of fulfillment and appreciation. Abundance means to see and appreciate the wealth that surrounds us – not just the material wealth, but the abundance of energy, love, nature, spirituality, food, enjoyment, and time. Abundance is a perpetual state of evolution, expansion, and growth that is mirrored in all that surrounds us. If you do not see these things, you may be restricting the flow of abundance. Perhaps you have blockages in place – beliefs that have you seeing a lack or scarcity, and embracing an idea that everything is limited or will run out.
Abundance is about giving and receiving in equal measure, rather than controlling, taking, possessing, or hoarding. Being generous, and appreciative, and grateful will help you to experience abundance. Being loving, and giving love will help you receive love. Being respectful will help bring respect to you. Giving with the right intentions for the right reasons, sharing what you have without fear, rather than dwelling on what you do not have, these will help bring wealth to you. Remember, however, abundance about giving simply because you can and want to, not because you want something in exchange.
7-11 is what is being activated for you during this New Moon.
7 ~ Self Reversed
The Self card reversed represents a need for you to look within and ask if you are embracing other people’s beliefs and behavior in order to belong. Going along with a “herd mentality” can make you predictable, and lead others to have certain expectations of you, especially if you are predisposed to follow their lead, or do as they do, without question.
You’re being asked to think for yourself. Stand on your own two feet. Be innovated and original, instead of doing what everyone else is doing. It does not serve you to believe what others tell you to believe, nor what others tell you to do— unless you truly do believe as they do, and share the same values. If you want to belong, do not try to make yourself fit in by being the same as others, when you know that you are different. Be who you are. Respect who you are. Then you will draw to you those that are similar, who will respect you, and whom you will also respect— because like you, other free thinking, independent people are busy walking their own path.
8 ~ Desire Reversed
When the Desire card appears reversed, it asks us to look at our desires honestly and see if they are selfish desires that only serve to bring dishonor and hurt to ourselves and others— for instance, if we desire what others posses, or just after something or someone at the expense of another, or want to possess more than that for which we have a genuine need, and allow these desires to dominate our life in a destructive manner. If we recognize these desires, it is time to ask ourselves if we are slaves to our desires. Will our servitude be our undoing?
When we look clearly at the nature of unhealthy desires, we will see that is a reflection of our character and nature if we choose to act on desire that we know will cause harm to and hurt to others.
Another message from the Desire card reversed is to stop worrying about what others are doing with their lives, and focus on what you are not doing. Why would you desire failure or harm to another who is doing their best to improve their life, just because you do not like them or agree with their lifestyle choices? This suggests a lack within yourself, born of your own fear to act on your desires. It is easy to judge, condemn, and wish failure or harm to others for doing the very thing you are afraid to do yourself— but they are not responsible for your unhappiness. You are.
When the Desire card appears in reverse, we have the opportunity to ask ourselves if we have given in to our selfish desires, and, if so, consider the consequences of our actions. If you recognize yourself in this reflection, it might be time to let your conscience be your guide, instead of the lack within.
9 ~ The Hero
The Hero represents someone we all admire for their noble qualities, their courage, and willingness to champion and rescue the weak and vulnerable.
In the past, the hero would ride in and save a village from thieves and villains, rescue damsels in distress, and battle against injustice. In the present, they are doctors who work to save lives in lands ravaged by war and disease. They are environmentalists who place themselves in harm’s way in order to save the forest, the oceans, and the animals that dwell within. They are the soldiers, the firemen, the paramedics and police – all of them ordinary people, who serve and protect, and often put their own lives at risk in order to save the lives of others. The hero could be the mother who jumps out of a burning building in order to save her child’s life, the man who dives in front of a car in order to knock another person out of the way, or the man who risks drowning himself to rescue another from rushing floodwaters.
In modern times, the hero is a guardian, protector, savior, activist, environmentalist, and so much more. They serve without question. They serve for little or no reward. They serve simply because it is the right and honorable thing to do. They are ordinary people who perform extraordinary feats.
When the Hero appears in your reading you are being asked to embrace the code, to act selflessly for the greater good. It is time to be the best person you can be, to resist pettiness and behavior that makes you less than you could be. We cannot all perform heroic feats, nor are we all meant to. However, we can choose to hold ourselves to a higher standard and treat all those we meet with dignity, kindness, and compassion.
10 ~ The Crone
The Crone symbolizes a proud and mature woman, an aging woman who is no longer influenced by a need to reproduce or parental responsibilities. She may be approaching, or have reached, a stage in her life where her menstrual cycles have slowed or ceased, but she is no longer true to the Crone archetype of old that is often depicted by Western society. The nature of the Crone has evolved with the times. She is the wise woman who is like nature – wild, still, passionate, volatile, calm, peaceful, adaptable and flowing, creative and powerful. She is everything she chooses to be. She is a woman who is aware of her choices, and may well have transitioned form Maiden to Crone without feeling any need or desire to be a Mother.
The Crone symbolizes the emergence of a mature woman who sees herself as being in her prime, with many fertile, productive, and creative years ahead of her. She is a woman who embraces her true power and potential.
11 ~ Healing
The Healing card illustrates our third reason for being; however, it covers healing on several levels, and does not necessarily suggest or imply that you are wounded or in need of healing – at least not on a conscious level. A happy, safe, and peaceful life does not always accord us with perfect health and wellbeing. Every person is vulnerable to disease, whether it manifest in physical, mental, or emotional stress, or as a feeling of emptiness and longing that is born of spiritual wounds.
Humans are a part of a hierarchical race. We have a social order, with the elite and wealthy at the top, and the uneducated and poor at the bottom. We are a species that is driven to win, with each of us striving to do better, to be better than the generation that came before. Those at the top want to stay there, and those at the bottom want to reach the top. We are goal-oriented, and believe that success moves us forward, and failure sets us back. We are on a perpetual quest to improve, whether it be our social standing, quality of life, or a simple desire to be a better person. We must be better. We must do better.
The Healing card symbolizes a need to reconnect and listen to what your body, mind, and feelings are telling you – to work with them instead of against them. Whether it be as simple as addressing a physical ailment, or addressing that empty ache that comes from denying ourselves enjoyment and connection, this card signals that it is time to rip off the layers of illusion, that protective armor, and the masks, and look at what lies beneath.
12-15 is a prominent message from Spirit for you during this New Moon.
12 ~ Integrity
The Integrity card is the eighth card of the influence cards. It represents making choices and acting with honesty and honor.
Integrity has many forms. There is personal integrity, professional integrity, artistic integrity, and intellectual integrity.
To have personal integrity is to have high moral, ethical, and personal standards, and to hold true to your core values regardless of circumstances. It is to stand in direct opposition of hypocrisy, dishonesty, cruelty, and injustice; to honor your personal truths. Your words and actions are in harmony, and do not contradict each other. In short, you walk your talk.
To have sound personal integrity is to be of good character and nature. It is to be authentic, and not hide behind any deception or illusion. What you see is what you get. Authenticity is the mainstay of a person with integrity.
To have artistic integrity is to do what you love, because you love it. Yes, if you are blessed to be able to create for a living, you should do so, but the basis of creation should always be love, not money. A person with artistic integrity would not compromise themselves or their craft for money. They will always give their audience and clients their finest work, because, when they love what they do, they strive without conscious thought to have their current project or creation be their best. Their heart and passion is always their guiding influence.
To have professional integrity is to practice ethical and honest behavior in business. It is to accord fellow employees, employers, customers, and clients respect and honesty. It is to meet one’s professional duties to the best of your ability each and every time. It is to strive to offer a product or workmanship of the highest quality, and to be willing to grow, improve, and refine one’s self in order to become a master of your craft, or the top of your field of expertise.
To have intellectual integrity is to live by the very same standards that you expect others to live by. It is to be consistent and treat all with equality. It is to be just and fair. It is to hold true to your core values in a manner that is consistent and expected. It is to give those around you the same treatment and not play favorites.
There should be no arbitrary exceptions, including yourself.
Those with integrity do their utmost to avoid hypocrisy, but also know and understand that some of the beliefs they subscribe to cannot always be honored. They aspire, but they do not always succeed, and this does not make them less. It makes them human.
Those with integrity are not perfect. Those with integrity are honorable, honest and accepting of their imperfect state and do not strive for an impossible ideal, but instead endeavor to be the best person they can be in all areas of their lives.
13 ~ Union
The Union card symbolizes unity and wholeness. It represents our relationship with our self and our relationship with the world around us. It represents the harmony that arises when we are in alignment within, and with both the seen and unseen worlds around us. To achieve this centered state is our fifth reason for being.
Who am I? What is my purpose? Why am I here? Self-inquiry puts our feet upon the path to wholeness. It is part of our life quest, and only in asking questions and seeking answers do we become whole. It is a journey that manifests in self-discovery.
We come into the world innocent and pure. While in the womb, our soul is still as one with the Source of All – the Void – the Cosmic Womb from which all came to be and all will return. Our soul remembers that connection. The soul remembers its unlimited potential. It remembers that it is whole and divine. This knowledge, and all that we experienced before taking our first breath in this life, resides within our unconscious mind, where it could motivate and guide us, if it were not for the fact that from birth we experience a life that is conflicting in every way.
The Union card represents the bringing together of many aspects of our world that we have been taught to separate from the whole. All is connected – as above, so below. The universe in which we dwell is multifaceted and whole. The earth upon which we dwell is multifaceted and whole. All that dwells beside us upon this blue-green earth is multifaceted and whole. We, humanity, are multifacted and whole and we have a symbiotic relationship with that whole. As the dominant species on the planet, the very health of the whole planet is dependent on our own health and unity as a species, and so we must reconnect and integrate and become one with all once more.
14 ~ Choice
All that you are, all that you have learned and experienced, is born of choice – the choices you have made, the choices others have made on your behalf, or choices they have made for themselves that have impacted on or influeced your life. You may believe that you have no choice, but that in itself is a choice. You may also exercise your right to allow others to decide for you – this too is a choice.
You may believe that you have too many options, and allow this to confuse and cloud your ability to choose – this is yet another choice. You are free to choose, or to allow others to choose for you. You can choose blindly, or with care. You can choose to act, or procrastinate. You can make your choices wisely, with knowledge and awareness, or make them in ignorance. Whether you choose to believe it not not, you are blessed with free will – the power to act and choose independently and determine your future.
You are a product of your choices and the choices of others. All that surrounds you within your environment is the result of your choices and the cjpoces of others. All comes back to Choice.
15 ~ Love
The fourth reason for being is to experience love in all of its forms – from co-dependent and need-based love, to big, unconditional Universal Love – and to understand that love comes in many different forms and guises. There is the innocent, trusting love that a child has for a parent, and the unconditional love a parent has for a child. There is the love one has for self, and the love one has for others. There is the love we feel when we do the things we love, and the love we feel when others appreciate what we do, There is our love for family, love for community, love for nature, love for the gods wechoose to worship – whether those godsbe born of science or religion, or the humans we choose to idolize. There is sexual love, platonic love, playful, affectionate love, selfless love, crazy love, and more.
We are here to learn that love is as multifaceted as we are, and that love is neither intrinsically good not bad. Love is a cosmic force that will shape us or break us, depending on how we choose to experience it, and just as we have a choice in what we experience, we have a choice in how we perceive and experience love.
