In the Cards

"full moon in pisces" How much pain can you bear comfortably? Hmm. Comfortably is a weird word here, isn’t it. Apparently I can bear a fair amount of mental pain. Assimilate it. Integrate it. Learn from it. Teach from it. I have a Moon Pluto conjunction in Virgo in my natal chart (in my First House). You astrology fans know what means!

And eventually there comes a time where you just sit there — you sit there — in shock at your… strength? Stupidity? Ability to bear.

I decided to look up “bear” on my MacBook Air dictionary and found some interesting stuff. Dictionaries are full of poetry.

the warriors bore lances tipped with iron 
have or display as a visible mark or feature 
she bore herself with DIGNITY 

to bear = to support 
to bear  = to endure (she bore the pain stoically. I do not bear stoically. But I do bear.) 
MANAGE TO TOLERATE A SITUATION OR EXPERIENCE
GIVE BIRTH TO A CHILD 
TURN AND PROCEED IN A SPECIFIED DIRECTION 
a large heavy mammal 🙂

Context:  So I was doing a quick three card spread for myself this evening on a very important matter. Always good to do those “simple” three card spreads on what matters most, eh?

On the left? The matter at hand. 
On the right? Me. 
In the middle? The energy between

"full moon in pisces" I’m not going to give you the entire spread but I will share this:

I am the QUEEN OF SWORDS here– a card associated with mourning (as my teacher taught me).

Oh yes.

I opened up one of my Rachel Pollack books and read this brilliant  line:

She knows that without her commitment to truth, she has nothing.

What do you bear? How do you bear? Which Queen are you today?

Love, Aliza
