The soul journey through the Thoth tarot cards: The Moon

Posted on Jan 23, 2014 in Tarot

Thoth Moon Tarot CardContinuing my journey through the spiritual development meaning of Tarot cards, specifically the major arcana of the Thoth deck, we reach number 18…..

The Moon Tarot card

The brightest light of the preceding Star casts the darkest shadow, and it’s into the shadows we must venture when we get to the Moon card. But a shadow is merely the absence of light, it indicates that something is preventing the light from getting through, and so now it’s time to delve deep into the Underworld where you’re not permitting the light of Spirit to penetrate.

This is not comfortable territory, and it’s easy to turn back at this point. We don’t like to focus on the murky areas of our personalities, the recesses of the subconscious where our fears are rooted.

Tidal, a poem

Posted on Jan 9, 2014 in Poetry

I was watching the sea in meditation at Widemouth Bay near Bude, when this poem just popped into my head pretty much fully formed. It was almost as if someone else wrote it through me:

Widemouth BayThe waves race to embrace the shore,
Stretching themselves out,
Pulling themselves thin,
Like reaching ghosts.
As if they know.
As if they know
That the same desire driving them
To individualisation on the sand,
Will pull them back inexorably
To the swallowing sea,
The overwhelming ocean.
And so it is with us.

Thoth Emperor Tarot cardFor this year, one that already feels very special to me, the card that I drew to guide us is The Emperor. Ah, now I can see why because this is the card of Aries, my birth sign, so I’m very at home with its energy! It’s going to be an exciting year, a year of innovation and new ideas, a time of original creation and most of all getting things done.

The Emperor is a ruler, and on a world scale I believe this card indicates the tension that will be highlighted between the old and new paradigms;

The Star Tarot card

Most people see this as the “best” spiritual card, and it is very beautiful. After the crisis of the Tower comes the healing balm and influx of the highest light, only made possible by the preceding disintegration. The cracks are how the light gets in.

So at this point you’re able to hold more light in your energy bodies, you’re more aligned with Spirit and your true soul purpose is more accessible because you’re free of all restrictions.

A soulful environment

Posted on Dec 13, 2013 in Spiritual living

Wuthering heights of the moorsTen years ago I made a conscious decision to move from the big city of Manchester to the rural peace of mid Wales. I believed it would improve my personal well-being and enhance my spiritual life; and it did. So I’m aware of the importance of environment and how much of an effect, for better of worse, it can have on you.

Now, as I’m travelling, I’m privileged to be able to witness this on a day to day basis, and to get to know my individual environmental chemistry (for want of a better word!) in a much deeper way.
