“She had never been in a place where the moon blooms, / or bridges lead to mirrors, / where the sky rains colored feathers, and we don’t get wet.” ~ When He Asks about Her Dreams by Lauren Camp
Right now, the world is buzzing, electrified by an energy always in transition. There have been political and social catastrophe’s, a hurricane that reared its wet paw to attack, and a black moon hung in suspense over our single star. There is much going on. In times like this, it can be easy to react outwardly, or to deflect in order to still make sense of things. It is always important to know where we stand. But in order to know where we stand with the circumstances around us, we must know where we stand inside our nerves, inside the cycles and pulses of ourselves. Within our perceptions lie the hidden metaphors and meanings. These ghosts help reveal what’s needed in the business that we must soon attend to. We must understand how things button for us, before we can ever hope to use our leverage to create change.
Lady Luna’s Magick speaks to drawing inward for understanding. The Moon is the middle between total darkness and light. She is silver radiance, and never still. Her movements are powerful. When we draw and channel this energy, ripples are made. These ripples are encouraged by the reversed Wheel of Fortune. Once they start, they expand, pushing the wheel. Once we start to look inward and synchronize with our inner energy, the motions we set are positive, and contradict all that is happening right now.
In the picture, Lady Luna stands before the silver coin, holding her staff, adorned with a large, Sun-colored crystal. This shows the merging between two worlds, two perceptions. The moon may not always be seen, but it’s power is untarnished. The eclipse was proof of that. Everyone wanted to see and experience the crossing of two paths. A cycle has come full circle after 99 years. The connection to the Wheel of Fortune is clear. The eclipse may be gone, but the energy is still circulating. Even in the picture of the Wheel, the Sun is bright, on top and synchronized with the Moon. These two cards were chosen at random, but are closely bonded.
In the light, these two cards allow us to connect more deeply to the underbelly of our circumstances. We are the pivot between the internal and external cycles and motions. In the light, we could find alignment, experience an unseen eclipse of perspective. Right now, what is needed is positive action towards change. But that means that we as individuals, as families, or in a group need to be that merging. Positive change for status quo is not enough. We must feel the motion in our bones.
In the darkness, these two energies could start to oppose each other, if allowed. They could offset, cancelling the other into silence. These energies right now are polarizing. What brings them together is that point of singularity, messily made of flesh and fluctuations. In the dark, indifference towards the other could hinder the process. There can be no merging if we refuse to participate.
For this week, look at what cycles or energies are coming and going. What is being revealed, and what is being set into motion? Cause and causation are stretched out like a band. They can have distance, but they always snap back together, biting down the length. Let the band between internal and external world snap back to center. To you.
