  1. To anyone who follows my moon readings, after today, I won't be back online until Tuesday, so I'll update them then. Until then, enjoy some Godsmack: And some MISSIO And some more P!ATD, because why not? See you Tuesday!
  2. DAY 22 - WANING GIBBOUS THEME: Insights and clarity DECK USED: Vision Quest Tarot 1. Something that I will be able to provide unique insights on - Daughter of Water (Page of Cups) Yeah, I can tell you all about emotions! Especially the raw, unevolved ones that the Daughter of Water/Page of Cups represents. I think the most important lesson I could share is that while pure, unfettered, passionate emotions may be exciting, if you don't temper them with reason, you may be in for trouble. I can't count the number of times my emotions have led me to say foolish things that I couldn't take back. Or when my feelings told me to follow what I believed was my true life path, only to find that it wasn't right for me at all, and in fact ended up making me miserable (I'm thinking about my brief foray into Evangelical Christianity here). There are numerous examples I could give, the point being that uninhibited emotions are powerful things, and you have to learn to control them before they control you. Now, all that being said, what would life be without a little romance? Dream about your crush, fantasize about going off on grand adventures, and look at the world through the eyes of love. If you just make sure you don't drown in your deep well of emotions, embracing a spirit of romance can bring great joy to your life, and can help chase away the blues when you're feeling down. 2. What I currently understand to be true about the greater mysteries - Torment (The Devil) Well. Isn't this an interesting card to get in this position. I guess the first thing I would say is that you can never find enlightenment without sacrificing your innocence, and you must be completely sure you're willing to do so before you embark on a quest to uncover the Greater Mysteries. Once you realize the Truth, your illusions may be shattered, and beliefs that once gave you comfort may be shaken to the core. While this process may ultimately leave you with a liberated mind, if you don't think you can handle the radical change in thinking it involves, then maybe ignorance is bliss. Second, I truly believe that to fully understand anything (including yourself) you have to acknowledge all sides of it, the light and the dark. Many seekers choose to focus solely on the light, but the shadow can reveal just as much, if not more, if you have the courage to gaze into it. Ignoring the darkness won't make it go away, and shining a light on it only makes it recede for a time. Only by entering the darkness can you truly understand its nature and uncover its mysteries. 3. An area of knowledge/understanding that is still eluding me and that I could benefit from exploring more deeply - Father of Water (King of Cups) For all I said about having to control your emotions, I haven't mastered that at all (in my defense, I am a Pisces! ). How to stay calm, cool, and collected when my emotions threaten to sweep me away is something that would greatly benefit me, but unfortunately this knowledge has eluded me so far. Perhaps exploring deeper meditation techniques and other coping strategies is the key. Since Cups represent water, and water represents the unconscious, I think the Father of Water/King of Cups is also saying that the knowledge that would serve me best right now is a deep understanding of myself. What motivates me, why I feel things the way I do, how the circumstances and events in my life helped shape me into the person I am today, and so forth. Self knowledge is the greatest power of all, and will help me move forward with confidence. Finally, I want to learn how to make deeper connections with other people. I would love to have deep, meaningful relationships, but my shyness and awkwardness always get in the way. This Father/King is the master at making connections, so studying him and his methods, along with gaining a better understanding of my emotional issues, will help me in creating the relationships I desire.
