Meditation on the Moon (Tarot Card)

posted by Aliza Einhorn

"full moon in aquarius" And now we turn to the Moon.

I remember in the first Tarot class that I taught, we had a long long discussion about the Moon. The class was all women I think, women mostly younger than me, and many of them didn’t hold the “traditional” Tarot hesitations about the Moon card — confusion, illusion, delusion, worries.

Instead, they were plugging into Moon cycles, rhythms of life, feminine rhythms, magic, imagination, poetry, incantation. Looking to the Moon for guidance. Courageous women.

(And since I have your attention, I want to tell you that my next on-line class will be a Tarot class! and if this interests you, please click on the link below (to my email) for details. I’m in the planning stages now but by late August or early September we’ll be up and running.)

But back to the Moon. Some of the time, yes, when I see this card in readings there is self-deception afoot — either yours or theirs. And then other times, yes, this card is asking you to tune in, to go above your paranoia or your worry, to the deeper insight. Anxiety is never the last word, you know?

The Moon can be crazy thoughts, crazy visions, crazy wisdom — what OTHERS think is crazy, but to you it’s nectar. It’s truth.

The Moon is also that shadowy half-awake half-asleep dreamtime 2 a.m. feeling. Not certain of what’s real. Is that a ghost cat at the door? Or just your tshirt hanging on the doorknob? And maybe you want to find out. And maybe you don’t. The feeling is unsettling.

Now if you don’t vibe with the more spooky Moon interpretations, please know that your instincts matter. That’s one of the things the Moon teaches us! To tune in and listen.

More Moon Words and Phrases:

-having a facade or letting go of a facade
-trust yourself, you’re heading in the right direction
-trust the Divine, angels, your guides
-psychic power, for good or ill
-Guidance
-taking a spiritual voyage
-pay attention to your dreams
-change
-forget about logic-mind
-female relatives (or friends or partners) reaching out to you (those who have passed on)
-time for you to express/experience mothering energy in your waking life too
-entering a new phase but not sure what it is yet
-you can’t attack or solve this problem head on. Sleep on it.

What do you see when you see the Moon?

To Build A Home: Full Moon in Aquarius

posted by Aliza Einhorn

"full moon in aquarius" Every New Moon is about home. Every Full Moon is about home. The next Full Moon, in the sign of Aquarius, is this Sunday.

Tonight in meditation class, my teacher mentioned going house hunting in a town 5 hours away, even though he’s not ready to retire yet.

The conversation made me think about Saturn. Saturn begins transiting my Fourth House in December. The Fourth House, in the horoscope, represents home, among other things, and Saturn is the Teacher, the Test, and the Task.

I thought about my new apartment. Been here a bit more than two weeks now. It’s a mystery to me how long it’ll last.

What is the task? asks Saturn (wherever he is transiting your chart).

Then on Facebook I mentioned my longing for community, a large household, and to matriarch. Yes, matriarch as a verb. How to make that happen. After 20 years of renting. I’d never ever once, before this summer, thought of buying a house. It never occurred to me to own anything that big or permanent, although yes, I know, people sell, buy, and lose houses all the time. The house is also a body. Remember this.

And remember that every New Moon, every Full Moon, is about home. Leaving home. Going home. Looking for home. To build a home.

Tonight on the ferry ride home, it got so dark I couldn’t see the waves anymore. It was a midnight blue mass. I began to wonder if only Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) liked to ride at the front of the boat, like I do.

It took me a couple weeks until I found my place, there with the others. But Aquarius (where this Full Moon will be) is the alien, the outsider. The inventor. You, my darling, have no home except the one you have the power and desire to create. So create it you must. 

I want to pull a card now, which is my habit here, for those who are rolling this question over in their minds like a stunning marble — questions of home and homelessness and the heart:

What you need to know about home now: the Eight of Cups.

You’re moving on.

Love, Aliza

This Beautiful Place: Meditation on the Star (Tarot Card)

posted by Aliza Einhorn

"full moon in aquarius" The Star is the future.
It’s not here now, not here yet. Stars are far away. This card always feels vague to me. Hope? Yay! Whatever.

I know I know, context is everything. I rather see the Star than the Tower but when I see the Star, I shrug my shoulders. I just don’t “feel” it.

Hope, but how do we get there? 

It’s a card of healing and peace and light, yes. But what else is it? How do we get to this beautiful place? 

Important to remember that the Star follows the Tower in the Major Arcana. Hope follows crisis and loss. The Star is what is left. The Star is us. We’re naked. We’ve been destroyed by the Tower but somehow we found water. We eventually got home after wilderness and wasteland. The Star reminds us to look up.

Some Star keywords:

-light at end of tunnel
-recovery, you will be healthy again, you’ll have energy again
-being open where once you were closed, closed off
-peace of mind, tranquility
-things will get better
-let your worries go, pour them out

Dear Readers, do you see The Star?

Don’t Be Afraid of Your Life: Meditation on the Tower (Tarot Card)

posted by Aliza Einhorn

"full moon in aquarius" Sometimes I wonder how I got here. We get thrown by the wind.

I talked to a client yesterday who has been through so many crisis changes. One of her cards was the Tower but the Tower was the past. She’d been through it. She survived. Talking to me from the other side now.

It’s no secret that the Tower is my least favorite card in the deck. And yet I know people who LOVE the Tower! These are often folks with a strong Aquarian or Uranus flavor to their birth charts. They don’t see it as scary. Or maybe nothing bad ever happened to them ;) Or perhaps they feel the pressure and are happy for the release and truth that the Tower brings.

All I know is… almost every time I have seen this card — for myself — crisis was on the way. Your mileage may vary.

So when I write “sometimes I wonder how I got here,” the real story is that I actually know. I got here by the Tower. I tend to stay in place, often fearful, until something falls apart or I am forced out of my old life.

But the thing is this, what I’m discovering, with the Tower AND with Uranus transits (astrologically speaking): the thing you think they mean isn’t always what they mean. The thing you think you are meant to discover isn’t always what you are meant to discover. Expect the unexpected says Uranus. And this can be unexpected good as well.

I wrote this on my Facebook the other day:

Uranus is called the Awakener or Liberator. But what we need to be awakened to or liberated from… if it doesn’t surprise you? Then you are missing something. It won’t be anything like what you expect. That’s Uranus. That’s the Tower. Coming at you with such force as to be frightening. But it’s just your life. Don’t be afraid of your life. The way it’s supposed to go, with its hairpin turns and such. It’s the face of God.

Do you feel thrown by the wind lately? You may be under a Uranus transit or pulling the Tower card, whether you pull cards or not. See, the energy is there, whether we seek it out or ignore it, or let it be.

Some Tower keywords:

-breakthrough
-sudden change
-shocking news
-upheaval
-life will never be the same again
-old thought forms falling
-the Divine is in charge
-destruction
-enlightenment
-realization
-life changes for the better but first comes the crisis, not a prolonged pain but can be quite painful for the duration
-release from imprisoning circumstances
-chaos (and it’s temporary)
-crashing
-here comes the truth, no turning back now

Dear Readers, how do you feel about the Tower?

Meditations on the Devil (Tarot Card)

posted by Aliza Einhorn

"jupiter in leo" That moment when you see exactly where someone’s limit is. I mean this in the context of romantic relationships. You see where someone’s limit is and you can go no farther. Because they won’t go. You can’t make them. Holding your breath won’t make them. Screaming and yelling won’t make them. Kindness won’t make them. New shoes won’t make them. You have met the limit. Pay attention to that moment. It’s not a fluke. It has happened before and will happen again and, poor you, you looked the other way, didn’t you, towards the limitless.

The next card in the Major Arcana for us to discuss is the Devil. These blog posts of mine are not the final word on these Tarot cards — not even my final word.  Just wanted to say that. That I’m giving you a shard of meaning here. So, again, when you push up against someone’s limit, pay attention. They are showing you who they are. They are saying, quite clearly:  this here? This is all I got!

The Devil card is often associated with the astrological sign Capricorn, which is ruled by Saturn. What is Saturn? Limitation. Structure. Discipline. Work. Effort. Patience. Persistence. Delay. Sorrow. And on down the line of dreary keywords and dewy keywords: time, wisdom, karma, integrity, maturity, the 10th House of the Zodiac Wheel: status, honors, fame.

The other day I saw someone’s limit. I said to myself, the next day: this is exactly how far she can go. She can go no farther in this friendship. This is it. The buck stops here. Do not pass go. This is THE MOST she has, the most she is, the most she can give, THE MOST. The crystallization of her soul.

But Aliza (you may say): crystallization (another Saturn keyword) implies that the crystal can be shattered, correct? Correct! Shatter at your own risk.

*
I had a Tarot reading once with someone I liked, someone I trusted, and he pulled the Devil card for me and another person, a romantic interest. The reader (I think) was a bit baffled. Didn’t want to give me a dark reading. Wanted to give me some bright and shiny news. Maybe.

Sex, the Tarot reader said. The Devil is sex. The Devil could be sex! Sex sex sex sex!!! Ooooooh sex!

How I feel:  if the Devil card IS indeed sex, it is problematic sex. Could be any number of scenarios though — simple incompatibility (is it ever simple?) or partners consciously (or unconsciously) withholding (i.e. using sex as a weapon), refusal to “own” one’s desire, not even knowing/learning what one desires, addiction to pleasure, temptation, desire without expression of desire, bondage (and not in a good way), adultery, obsession, materialism (worshipping the body rather than the soul), careless seduction, gluttony.

Tarot books and Tarot readers (myself included) are fond of saying: SEE THOSE TWO PEOPLE THERE? THE CHAINS ARE LOOSE! THEY CAN SET THEMSELVES FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.

But let me ask you this: Have you ever been chained? To someone else? How easy was it to set yourself free?

*
Here’s my advice, for when you see the Devil card:
Get dressed!

Because what you think you have in your hot little hands is not what you have in your hot little hands. What you have is limitation, and I am writing this under the assumption that you want MORE than no.  I am writing this under the assumption that you want YES.

Furthermore, Devil dude in the Rider Waite looks pretty unappealing. His beard? Surely not soft to the touch. His eyes? Unblinking stare. His wings can’t compare to Temperance’s gossamer rack. Moderation never looked so good, eh? And the feet — I mean claws — can you imagine him scuttling across your floor, scratching up the refinished pinewood? You’ll never get your deposit back now, dear renter ;)

Dear Readers, what do you see when you see the Devil card?

A Tarot Card for Leo Season

posted by Aliza Einhorn

"full moon in aquarius" I don’t know what a year of healing looks like yet. I’m just starting mine. Like a new song, I don’t know how it goes. The verses, the bridge. Healing bridge. Go over it.

See, we were belched out. Evicted from the apartment (and neighborhood so it feels) that I’d lived in for years. Too freaked to fight it or call a lawyer to find out “my rights” – although that was the first thing I said to my former landlord the night, when he told us we needed to move out “asap.”

From the crummy carpeted land-locked middle Brooklyn, where I created my on-line astrology business and changed my life, to an open face railroad apartment near the water with lots of light, so much light. What is this place? Discovery when I remember to slow down and listen. Opening. Talking to the walls any spirits living here.

The leave was sudden and harsh and fast. I worked hard to make it happen. Now to rest.

When you are facing a year of healing you must remember to slow down and listen. Everything is different. Even through the ugly things like calling the IRS and paying bills and looking in the mirror at my middle aged body, no running, no rushing.

Astrologically speaking we are in the Season of Leo. A playful and proud sign. A decent sign. Warm generous fire sign. Creative sign. The astrological sign associated with the heart. In the astrology class that I’m teaching we are discussing the element of fire and various astro transits including Jupiter in Leo and Saturn in Sagittarius.

The other day I wrote this:

keep going into those houses, those houses in your birth chart where Jupiter and Saturn (and Uranus) are/will be transiting. You will find your courage there. The Fire of Courage. The Fire of Faith. What will you create? What will you destroy? Fire transforms, consumes. We must learn to master our fire — so as not to go up in flames ourselves.

In the Tarot, the Strength card is associated with Leo.

Today I was doing a reading for a client, and we saw both the Chariot and Strength. Chariot was the past. Strength was the future. Strength was what it would take to keep her relationship. Chariot was probably how she got the guy in the first place.  A bit of running him over maybe.

I remember reading Tarot author Joan Bunning calling Chariot “hard control” and Strength “soft control.” Reminds me of wrangling the cats into their carriers on moving day. You can’t scare them into the carriers or play lion tamer or sweet talker. You gently but firmly take control of the situation. Unzip carrier. Lift cat inside. Make sure tail not caught. Zip up. Fast. Gentle but firm. You’re in charge but the animal (within you, your animal soul) cooperates.

I was not able to predict an ultimate absolute happy ending for this couple. It looked complicated to me, and surrounded more by free-will choice than fate. I did see him looking her way again, needing her again, but that it would be up to her to decide.

I am surrounded by passionate women, my clients. Their stories move me. I’m a passionate woman myself, growing older, mid-life now, discovering more and more truth about life, about men and women and women and men. And becoming more passionate and able to articulate it. The light doesn’t grow dim. It heats up. It ascends.

See, sometimes the Strength card isn’t about needing to be strong, or being strong enough — but about who you are now and that you’re completely capable in this moment. You don’t need improvement. The thing that you think you’re waiting for: IT’S ALREADY HERE.

What do you love? What makes you feel alive? What brings passion to your heart center? These are just some of the questions of Leo Season.

Dear Readers, what do you see when you see the Strength card?

Meditation on Temperance (Tarot Card)

posted by Aliza Einhorn

"new moon in leo"

This afternoon I took a walk to the ferry. Didn’t go anywhere but there. Just wanted to walk. Wandered the station for a bit. Got something sweet and cold.

And I wasn’t thinking about the Temperance card — except that I knew I was going to come back home and write about it, about how Temperance is one of the least flashy cards of the deck, in terms of emotional impact.

It’s no Devil, no Death, no Tower, no Empress with her flowing this and her flowing that, Miss Fertile Fecundity. Temperance instead is… balance. Feh. 

You don’t gasp when you see it. And maybe you even feel a bit disappointed. Wha? No crafty Magician? No naked Star lady? But that’s part of the point I think. Temperance comes to whisper in your ear: moderation.

And if you don’t get the message, you’ll keep hearing her, and this time not in a whisper: MODERATION!!!!!

You can read any number of Tarot books that will link Temperance to Big Ideas — to alchemy or angels or the sun sign Sagittarius, the biggest idea of them all, ruled by Jupiter etc., and that’s FINE but today I’m serving Temperance terra firma. Sensible, practical, temperate!

One of my favorite interpretations is cooperation. Compromise. It’s a great card for any kind of partnership. Another meaning which I rarely remember but rediscovered today: good health, good health returning.

Even my walk today was temperate, moderate, mild. Didn’t go too fast. Didn’t go too slow. Didn’t go too far. Didn’t explore too much but some. Didn’t buy too much. Didn’t come home empty handed. A little of this, a little of that. Mixology. Alchemy. There. I said it.

So maybe Temperance isn’t as boring as she/he seems. Maybe we NEED a little self-control. And maybe there IS a little magic in this card, and protection. After all, it’s Major Arcana — the larger patterns of our lives, our fate. And yeah that is a supersize angel with supersize wings. And blond curls.

When you see the Angel of Temperance remember:  you’re going to be okay, no matter the surrounding cards or circumstance. You’re not alone here. To quote American poet Elizabeth Bishop: Somebody loves us all.

Tarot for the New Moon in Leo! July 26th

posted by Aliza Einhorn
"new moon in leo"

Photo by Aliza Einhorn

It’s the end of the day as I type this. Listening to melancholy music. Not very Leo of me! Not very New Moon in Leo of me. What is Leo? Ardent fire sign. Stubborn. Proud! Kingly and loyal.

Leo rules the HEART, is courageous and confident. And yet I know Leos (Sun or Rising or Moon or all three) who lack in these qualities. See, it takes all kinds.

The cards that I’m about to draw are for the Leos (or anyone reading this) who need help discovering their inner Leo, their inner Lion: courage, RESILIENCE, grit.

A New Moon in Leo is a New Moon in EGO and I mean this in a good way. Ego as in SELF-RESPECT. Even the most compassionate among us cannot give it all away, for then they would have nothing left to give. In my childhood tradition, charity is required and is a virtue, but not if it impoverishes your own family. You have to have enough ego to not let yourself starve.

One card for Sun in Leo, one for New Moon in Leo, and one for Jupiter in Leo (which will be conjunct Sun and Moon!)

These cards are showing me your fear but also the way out of your fear. Fear about not having enough. Fear of nothing working out:  Five of Pentacles and the Seven of Pentacles. Interesting no WANDS here. Wands are fire. Pentacles are earth. And the way out of the fear? The Jupiter card? The Magician! Haven’t seen him in a while. In fact, I can’t remember the last time. And hmm he has a wand!

The couple in the Five of Pentacles are out in the cold, shivering. There is a lighted window behind them. Did they leave that warm place? Or just not see it? Why can’t they see it? Why can’t they see shelter is here?

And then the man in the Seven of Pentacles: he has not failed but he wonders if he has, evaluating his crop. He is surrounded by everything lush but… his eyes face downwards. He is pulled down, I think. He can’t find his flame, his fire.

Earth School is trapping these people ;) they’ve forgotten how to fly. THAT’S WHAT FIRE IS FOR. TO MAKE US REMEMBER THAT WE ARE SPIRIT. SPIRIT IN BODY. WE ARE SOUL, HOUSED TEMPORARILY in these… blood and bone shacks!

The Magician is called the Alchemist in this deck. He is a creator, a generator. Fear isn’t part of his laboratory. He’s got his books, his tools, his divine inspiration. Man (or woman) with a plan! Fear of lack? Nah. Fear of failure? He’s TOO BUSY making magic. The Magician IS ego, is consciousness. He is looking for a cure for fear. He believes he can, WILL have an affect on the world, heaven and earth, with his spells and magic and alchemy.

You’ve got the power (says the Magician). You’ve had it all along.

Rootless, Wandering the Earth: Meditation on the Death Card

posted by Aliza Einhorn

"jupiter in leo" I’ve written about this card before. It comes up often enough. What I want to emphasize about the Death card this morning is the slowness of it. It’s no swift Tower conflagration although you may see Death and Tower in the same spread (although I hope you don’t!). There will be change, there will be transition, but we often DO NOT KNOW precisely, down to the minute, what the change will be. The change could be accompanied by the Wheel of Fortune’s good fortune or the Knight of Wand’s travelogue or the Three of Cups celebration. It could be a Three of Swords (separation) change or an Empress (pregnancy) change.

One thing is certain: Death takes its time.

You know that phase “a good death” ? I remember my mother using that phrase once — to describe a relative’s painless passing at a ripe old age. The Death card may or may not signify a good death but it does signify, as I wrote above, a slow death.

And for some this could be good! Some folks prefer their poison drop by drop. And then others do prefer the Tower-rip-off-the-bandaid-the-crisis-is-here-now-pack-your-bags approach to life and how to live it.

I think many of us dig something in-between, although the Gods aren’t always interested in what WE want. I think, more often than not, they’re not. Truth is though at some point Death (in the guise of change and transition, according to the Tarot) comes for us all. He may knock on the door. He may peer through the window. He may telephone. He may sit at the beautician’s filing his nails, waiting. Waiting. Waiting.

Do you feel him coming? Do you sense his presence? A little dark around your own edges. A stomach ache. Just a feeling but not like the usual feeling. And, again, we are not talking about literal death THE REAL DEAL, but the ends of things: relationships, jobs, life cycles. Your empty nest syndrome is the Death card. Your eviction from your home is the Death card. Your broken heart is the Death card. Your courageous determination to change what you believed for so long couldn’t be changed is the Death card. It is slow, it is inevitable, it is the decomposition of what was once vigorous and meaningful (to you) now replaced by operation rot.

You know what though? I have a silver lining for you! After Death comes the rebirth. Always always always. And it may feel like a speck to you, the tiniest shrub of hope, not even that good glossy good morning hope but a barely functional bodily function proving you’re still here. Know what I mean? Drooling in your sleep as proof that you’re alive. You’re still here. Even after the Death card.

Dear Readers, you may not feel all teddy bears and rainbows when the Death card seeks you out, but this card is a promise.
Of what?
RESTORATION.
REVIVAL.
LIFE.

Meditations On The Hanged Man (Tarot Card)

posted by Aliza Einhorn

"jupiter in leo" Hung up. Strung up. That’s what I sometimes feel and see when I see the Hanged Man.

And then other times it’s just a wait. Pause. Break in action. Surrender to the moment, on the dot. Do nothing. Breathe. Hung up. Strung up :)

This is one of THOSE Tarot cards though — double dose of enigma (and confusion?) surrounds it. See, the dude (I’ve never seen a version of this card where the figure didn’t appear to be male) is hanging upside down. He’s hanging from a tree branch. He’s hanging by one foot. The other leg crosses behind. The nimbus around his head suggests, to me, that he’s blessed. He’s living his life in the light of the Divine. He’s guided, whether or not he knows it. So although he’s suspended, although he hangs from a tree branch, arms behind his back, he’s got this. He’s okay.

When you see this card? The same applies to you.

I remember, early on, when I first started reading/studying Tarot, seeing the word sacrifice associated with this card and yes I have had that meaning come up in readings. There may be something you have to give up in order to get. An offering made. A bargain.

Another common interpretation: new perspective. Makes sense right? Hanging upside down, can’t move. No wonder you see things differently now. Make the best of it. And perhaps that, in and of itself, is the sacrifice. You have to give up… what you thought you knew. Gravity.

The Major Arcana cards are RBD (really big deals). They aren’t the mundane daily-do of the pip cards or the people of the Court cards. The Major Arcana are the larger cycles, terrain you must travel. Unavoidable. Fate. Like the transits of the outer planets in astrology. The Major Arcana is your Jupiter through Pluto.

He’s waiting. You’re waiting. He’s willing. You’re willing. Willing to wait.

So many layers and levels to this card but let’s stop here for now :)

Some keywords to keep in mind:
*surrender (of ego, of belief, what you think you know)
*suspension (you are here, nothing you can do, can’t make life move any faster)
*letting go (releasing, eliminating, giving away, clearing out, sweeping)
*waiting (for the right conditions, right time, right person)
*sacrifice (can’t have it all, have to choose but feel you can’t choose? then wait until you can)
*feeling stuck (relax despite the discomfort, pain is inevitable but suffering is optional)
*waiting (to see what will happen, who will show up, giving people rope, slow down, breathe)
*finding yourself/self-discovery (who you are truly, madly, deeply)
*peace (is all around you)
*reversal (of your energy being drained. If you’ve been depleted, you start feeding yourself better. Chakra balancing)
*new perspective (of course you will see things differently now, can you practice seeing through new eyes?)
*the mystic (is who you are now, don’t fight it, believe it)
*with God (you are not alone, you have never been alone, you are not alone)
*slow down (in through the nose, out through the mouth, alternate nostril breathing, sit)
*listening (say less, hear more, listen with your entire body, from crown to toes)
