December 27th Musings

I was recently gifted a new oracle deck for Christmas, the Rumi Oracle by Alana Fairchild. The energy when holding the deck immediately told me it had things to say and that I needed to listen. After becoming acquainted with each card, I pulled one for the day asking what lessons it had for me. The card I pulled was the Dance of the Divine Feminine.

If a tree could move
from one place to another,
it would not suffer the pain of the saw
or the oppressive wounds.

If the Sun and the Moon
stood still like the rocks,
they could not offer brilliance.

How bitter the taste of water would be,
if the river stopped its flow
remaining still like seawater.

When the seawater rises
to become a cloud,
it loses its bitterness
and pours the rain of sweetness.

I have given you only a few examples.
You can figure out the rest.
Break away from the self
and enter the Kingdom of Love
-Rumi

This message could not be more appropriate for what is going on in my life but also for the astro weather brewing. Neptune is making some major aspects, asking us to delve into the divine, while Saturn holds one of Venus’s hands and the Sun holds the other. She’s moving away from the restriction of Saturn and into the creative arms of the Sun. Neptune is forcing Mars to take a deeper look before he hits Jupiter and expands his energies outward. Neptune wants Mars to use his energy in a healing way, bringing in Mercury to help connect everything together.
The moon is dancing, though briefly, through it all, twirling with Uranus and showing her deepest individualistic expression. Her eyes are closed and she doesn’t care if anyone is watching- she just wants to feel the energy in the air as Uranus fills her with electricity.

This card is telling us to take control of our lives. Don’t be afraid to make some changes; Saturn might make us feel like our energies are stifled but he really wants us to let go of what isn’t serving us. He’s highlighting areas we feel inadequate about and telling us to hone in on them, work on them, and gain back our confidence. We often stay stagnant because of fear- we don’t know enough, we aren’t strong enough, people will laugh at us, we can’t succeed. Saturn is telling us to stop the self-defeating talk, follow our dreams and ignite our desires instead of hiding behind fear. Everyone does this in a different way- my way is finding the divine feminine inside myself and allowing her to break free of the restrictions I’ve held her under for too long. If the water around you tastes bitter, shake things up- allow fresh water to flow through.

The Planet reference guide!

Sun is your personality. It’s who you are as a person. Your spirit. Your vitality. What makes you feel fulfilled on a personal level.

Your Ascendant is what others see you as, it’s a mask to the outside world, who you are in social situations. How you project yourself out to others.

Moon represents your emotions. It is your soul. The way you nurture and need to be nurtured. How you filter information internally in regards to your immediate reactions and feelings.

Venus represents how you love. It is what you find beautiful and attractive. What excites your spirit and soothes your soul. How you love and how you recognize and feel love. It is also our divine feminine energy.

Mars is the warrior planet and therefor rules dominance. It is our divine masculine energy. It rules anger and physical reactions. It is how we take action, what makes us take action, and what stirs us. What we find desiring and sexually pleasing.

Pluto is the planet of death and regeneration. It throws constant trials our way in order to teach us lessons. It is the planet of destruction in order to make room for creation. It is a highly internal, primal, and intense energy.

Jupiter is our ‘bigger picture’ of the world. It rules optimism and the future. It is expansive and all inclusive. It’s bursting with excitement, joy, and hope. It rules justice and truth.

Uranus is the trickster planet and likes to throw a wrench in our plans. It is the eccentric genius. It shows us where we differ from the crowd, where we stand independent, and where we get sparks of insight and inspiration for positive progression.

Saturn is the harsh reality- it’s every day life. It’s where we must put in time in order to see results. It’s the tangible world, the daily routine, the strict rules. It restricts. It sets boundaries. It lays down the law.

Neptune is very elusive, ruling over dreams and escapism. It has domain over drugs, fantasy, undercurrents of life, the collective unconscious. It is everything yet it is nothing. It casts a fog wherever it goes. It shows illusions and personal delusions and things that may or may not truly be there.
