Card of the Day: THE MOON & SECRETS
(Courtesy of the Dreamtime Reading Cards by Laura Bowen)
I thought to write what the writer, and artist Laura Bowen who is of Aboriginal Australian descent of what this card means to her. Her indigenous connections are to the Worimi/Birpai people of the Manning River area of New South Wales in Australia.
We will experience a New Moon in Aries on Sunday, April 15th which aligns with the planet Uranus. This is a positive change as well as the ending of the Mercury Retrograde as Mercury will then go forward! Yay!!!
Anyway, the card reading for today…..
“Although in a lot of traditional societies, the moon is associated with femininity, but I had always thought it to be male. It is because of this fact it is associated with secrets and mystery, Traditionally what we call ‘men’s business’ or ‘women’s business’ were gender-specific and not shared with the opposite gender. The Moon is very powerful. It controls the cycles of the oceans and the female womb. During the full moon, it offers periods of illumination. As it wanes down the dark moon, the earth is once again returned to darkness and questioning.
The Moon is a messenger offering the knowledge that life continually cycles – you may never have all the answers or understanding of why things happen the way they do, but you can be assured the cycles continues as the moon moves through its phrases. You have times of power and times of stumble in the darkness. There will be answers that are illuminating and moments where your emotions will feel overwhelmed by unanswerable questions.
At a time of feeling unsure, it may be wise to remember your personal power and your inner light. Take action and responsibility for the life you are living. the moon represents a time for making intentions, for seeking answers, and acknowledging your own power.”
With love and blessings,
