Discovery Draw – Key of Life

Discovery Draw

The Goddess Aset (more commonly known as the Goddess Isis) spins the ankh – the symbol of life, and an object that is seen being held by most in Egyptian hieroglyphs. For me, this is such a powerful interpretation of Aset, the Mother Goddess, because she holds life in the palm of her hand. She controls and commands it, and by doing so creates a ring of fire around her. Fire is the passion that we all breathe, and that breath is what gives us life. The fact that she stands in front of mountains shows her standing in front of the Higher Self and her transcendence of us all.

If you are fortunate to receive this card, you must ask yourself: what is life? What does it mean to you? Most importantly, you must ask yourself…are you living it?

Discovery Draw – 5 of Wands

Discovery Draw 5 of Wands

In The Wild Unknown Tarot on the left, the wands are flying all over the place. They are each on their own path trying to travel to their chosen direction, yet all have another wand crossing its path. This card denotes competition. Notice that they are not swords. The fact that they are wands and not swords can also indicate a period of training, or honing your skills or craft for a future project. If you receive this card, keep on the lookout for others who may potentially cause a bump on your road. If you are prepared you will come out on top as demonstrated in the After Tarot on the right.

There will soon be refreshment in your life – something that will come from a success in regards to your passion. Don’t rest on your laurels when this happens as there is still much more to do.  There will still be competition coming your way so stay focused; however, enjoy the victory when it comes.

Love and Light,

Aquarius Moon is fresh breath of air today 2-24-2017

Libra Seeking Balance

aquarius_by_AutumnsGoddess

We’re deep in the Balsamic Phase of the Moon preceding Sunday’s New Moon Solar Eclipse in Pisces, and today the Aquarius Moon makes one aspect all day – a sextile to sweet Venus in Aries this morning. We can breathe freely now and clear our minds ahead of the New Moon. The quiet sky will allow us to focus on the wrapping up the week with the minimum of fuss and bother. 🌠☾♒🌠

This is the last full day Mercury will be in Aquarius because tomorrow it will drop into intuitive Pisces without a ripple. We’ve become used to a sky dominated by fire and air but that’s beginning to change. Fire and air make for a lively, direct exchange of ideas and being assertive is considered a plus. Once the Pisces waters rise even more, we’ll need to tone it done and pay much closer attention to how…

Food for Thought – The Importance of Black People in Tarot

I was so excited to find myself a beautifully melanated deck of Tarot cards. When I first started reading Tarot, I found myself annoyed with the lack of diversity. I was so aggravated in fact that I found a brown colored pencil and started coloring things in. I still was unsatisfied, because it felt ‘unauthentic’ and went out to purchase some decks. Next thing I knew I was swimming in a sea of Tarot and Oracle decks, because I was so obsessed with finding one black person! I came across the Vision Quest tarot deck and used that for a while because it had Native Americans and it was, ‘as close as I could get,’ but I still couldn’t relate to the deck. When you can’t relate to the deck you are learning with I feel that it makes development more challenging and time consuming. How could I relate to the struggles of Becky with blonde hair and blue eyes when I was a black woman with nappy hair from New York?

We are making strides in the world, but we are still behind and the New Age and Tarot communities. Out of all of the decks out there, this is the only fully melanated deck I’ve seen our heard about. It’s important for decks to show people of all shapes, colors, and sizes. If I can’t relate to the decks, how do I expect my clients to relate to their readings? img_2763

Food for Thought

We live in a world of infinite potentialities, unlimited choices, and endless possibilities. Don’t believe me? If you got out of bed today then you made a choice. I hear your voice. ‘But Rainn, I had to go to work today or I had to go to school.’ That may be the case, but you still made a choice. You could have made a decision not to go – although probably a bad choice, it’s still a choice. You chose to brush your teeth. You chose to eat. And most importantly you chose to live. We sometimes feel helpless – like we are stuck doing the motions that society mandates that we do, but we do have the ability to break free of the chains that bind us. It is just up to us to decide if we are willing to take the first step – to make the choice to be courageous.

Love and Light,

Rainn

The Fool’s Journey – The Fool (0)

fool

Tarot is the documentation of the Fool’s Journey. We are the Fool. It journals the ups and downs of life and forecasts the path that we all must take in order to reach our most highest of selves.

The Fool is the beginning – zero is the number of infinite potential. He is at the beginning of his journey – he stands at the precipice. He is Spirit before his physical birth.

He holds a white rose, the rose of purity, innocence, and perfection. We are all perfect and have a gift to bring into the world; however, the stems on the rose symbolize that understanding our perfection will be a painful process.

The dog symbolizes the carnal aspect of humans. We are dualistic – both divine and animalistic driven by instinctual urges. We must make friends with our animal side, the ego. But be mindful! If not prepared, that animal can turn your life upside down.

He carries a knapsack filled with memories of past lives and tools needed for the life and journey that is about to begin. He tells us that we already carry the tools we need to get through life so try not to over-analyze and always trust.

Live your life the best you can. What it means to spiritual is to be alive.

Love and Light,

Rainn
