A question of Faith: Causes, Influences and Advice for the Current Phenomena

There has been a lot of strange phenomena happening both within the natural world and that of human society & egoic creations. Our last Dark Moon coincided with a solar eclipse that was visible across many countries, including the United States (where I live) and the following Full Moon in September directly preceded massive solar flares which expand the visibility of the Aurora Borealis. (You can check the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Prediction Center website to see where and when the Aurora Borealis will be visible.) And Hurricane Harvey is ravaging the Southern Part of the United States. In additional to these strong natural phenomena, we have a tumultuous social and political environment that is drastically polarizing communities and pushing people out of political non-involvement and into the public arena of activism and outcry. Invisible wars are coming to the surface and political intrigue is now so blatantly obvious that citizens can no longer deny it’s existence. We wonder: Why is this happening? What are the driving forces behind this bizarre phase? Is there are purpose? Is anything we can do about it?

The world has been changing on both a physical and energetic level. The resurfacing of Shamanic connection to spirits and “rediscovery” of the validity within Ancient Holistic forms of medicine such as Meditation, Yoga, Ayurveda, Chinese Medicine and so on has pushed human society into a new phase of Evolutionary Integration. One that expands beyond individual health and wellness and into a global synthesis of humanistic ideas & resources along with the current issues within these areas. We are all pushing forward in our own way, and there is friction with the naturally occurring inertia within human society as change is not easily absorbed or accepted.

Hence, I decided to read on What has manifested, the causes, the influences, and the advice for the current situations in order to help us reflect on our circumstance, prepare for and resolve whatever lies within and around us.

What has been manifested are the goals we were working on, both subconsciously and externally; even if we do not consciously choose to go a certain way, our subconscious guides us with subliminal patterns in choices and actions. People have gradually organized themselves into communities and social groups that align with their own personal beliefs and spiritual understandings. What causes this is disappointment with a seemingly lack of success in the external world as we all work internally to grow ourselves in the new self-help and self-development craze brought on by the New Age Movement. There is real actual growth happening, it just isn’t what we expected. Popular notions of Growth are synonymous with Success in mundane and or superficial terms: physical reward, popularity and external acceptance. But True Growth is often uncomfortable and pits us against learned behavior and norms that no longer apply to the current environment. It challenges us to look into the unknown, question what we know and go beyond what we believe is possible. It can also bring disillusionment with a world that just isn’t as splendorous as it was promised to be. Major Influences come from the resurfacing of the Shadows within humanity as we incessantly push forward with. Modern progress is insatiable in it’s drive to continue onward: to do more, do better, and never stop. As we move forward, we may lose ourselves in the process, but then our shadow resurfaces to face us in moments of loss, confusion and brokenness. This dichotomy doesn’t seem to make sense, so it drives people crazy and pushes them against their own personal wall of ability as they try to work through it all. We must face that which we ignore, that which we dislike, that which lies in us and confuses, irritates or disgusts us. It trips us up when we are charging ahead, and now, it is running with us as we are gradually learning to accept and release it. Suggestions on how to deal with this are to not try to control it and allow the emotions and confusion to saturate our being so that we can confront our truth. This allows us to acknowledge and release what needs to be shed. As we shed that which no longer serves us, we grow. This is painful and may make us act nonsensical, but it also allows us to learn more about ourselves as we open up to the truth within and do not try to hide it under an austere or arbitrary persona. We may feel unfortunate about what is happening but true fortune lies inside our hearts as we let go of our grip on the outside and accept ourselves so wholeheartedly that we feel fortunate just being.

What grounds us is inner work to clear away the past along with what no longer serves us. As we focus on inner work, we can collaborate with others to lessen the external workload, and allow for an inner focus. Giving ourselves time to really and honestly take care for ourselves also allows us the mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional space to recuperate and restore our mind, body & spirit balance, thus allowing us to more fully and willingly engage and collaborate with others.

What crowns us is to not give up or walk away immediately, but work inwardly so that we are able to leave situations when they no longer encourage our growth. And also be grateful for ourselves, love ourselves and care for ourselves, so that we are able to face negative situations with inner trust and optimism. We may get angry and feel unsupported at times, but if we can at least trust in our own abilities and be thankful for what lies within, we can have an inner faith that carries us through the situations to come.

We are always growing, always changing, and always challenged by ourselves and our environment. We are also all connected to the natural Universe, even as our Ego may push us away and make us feel alone in the world. Know that we are not alone, and even if we feel that way, faith in our own human ability to push onward will carry us through. When we can finally trust ourselves, we can gradually learn to trust our environment and be in flow with energy of the Universe. Faith, Trust, Understanding and Love connects us to our inner knowing, our intuitive and psychic insight about ourselves and our environment.

Personally, I have been through a lot, but once I faced my shadow: my fears, my anger, and my disappointments, I was finally able to release and accept myself more wholly than before. This reading helped me understand how and why Faith has been a strong underlying theme for me these past weeks: Whether or not we have Faith in Humanity and Faith in the Universe depends on whether or not we have Faith in Ourselves. So, do you have Faith? In Humanity, yourself, and the Universe?

Inspirational Full Moon Forecast for June 10, 2017 : Inner Work to Support our Self Expression

Here is my inspirational Full Moon Tarot Forecast for this upcoming Full Moon on June 10, 2017. The reason why I call this Inspirational is because I focus on Self Development and Problem Solving, thus my forecasts are for helping us navigate our way through our lives whether our life flows smoothly, rapidly, or through streams of rocks and boulders.

What is manifesting is a reprieve from the severity that we inflict upon ourselves and others around us as we relax our mental grip our situation. What is releasing is the feeling of lack of stability or a reliable routine in our lives that requires us to create a strong inner sense of stability and regularity. We can prepare for this by moving forward, ready to experience new experiences and create new memories that blossom and nourish our lives. We allow this to happen to express ourselves in the fullness of our being so that we can intake all that the universe has to give.

We ground ourselves by remembering the inner world within us, and cherishing it as we face the obstacles within our path. To have a strong sense of knowing and understanding of the inner self so that we may express ourselves fully and continue to go forth despite of what may come into our bath. What crowns us is a reprieve from overworking in the external world so that we make work on the inner self and world within us. We take a break from the building up the external world in our environment to work on our inner growth and understandings. It is time to reconnect to the self within so that we may move forward with full knowing and self expression.


New/Dark Moon Forecast for April 26, 2017 Quitting the Worries and Moving Forwards in our Own Safe Space

We are leaving the worries from the last phase and moving into a new phase of inspiration and dreams.

A post shared by Luna (@lunadeltarot) on

We prepare for this by turning our focus inward and taking a graceful pause to work on our elements of our core that have been hidden away in a tower. We let the inner walls crumble as we break through to uncover the shadows and reveal them to the light within and all around us. We allow for the change by focusing on our priorities while letting superfluous elements of life pass us us by. For we are grounded our movement forwards as the work we do within us bring a natural change in the outer world. The external changes are side effects of the work we do inside our shells, our towers, and the secret chambers of our soul.

A post shared by Luna (@lunadeltarot) on

The speed and direction of our movement forward is determined by our own inner guidance, which measures up to our personal best and directs us to our personal dreams.

What crowns this phase is keep guard so that we may work on ourselves and grow in a safe place. There is a big difference between excessive worries that distract us from our goal and a general guard that protects us and provides a supportive environment for inner work and movement. So let your inner wisdom speak to you and ease your worries as you focus on priorities and proper self protection.

Dreamwork 03 Working with Dream Symbolism + 3 Card Spread for Analysis

Symbols can have Universal meanings, the one that is present in the Collective Consciousness, and also a Personal Meaning. I recommend that you keep a dream journal to keep track of what has been happening in your dreams: what you encounter, what you see and interact with. And also where are these symbols seen, what is happening when they appear. What do they do to you? What do you do to them? Is it a tool? Does it change? Is it static? How to do you feel when you see these symbols? Do you hear or taste anything? Do you feel anything Kinetically or Emotionally? All these little details can tie together to form a complex meaning of what the symbol is to you.

Most importantly, what does the symbol mean to you on a personal level? Within your own personal history, your life, any circumstances in which this symbol came up. What have you learned about this: What have people told you about this symbol, and what have you learned through your own research. You can also look online to find common meanings for this symbol in Dream Analysis. I recommend that you emphasize your personal meaning of this card before you look for information about what this symbol means to other people, because they are not you. Yes there are basic Archetypes, and meanings within the collective consciousness. However, dreams are deeply personal and customized for our subconscious, in our dream world, in our personal adventure.

If you work with Cartomancy, here is a simple three card spread that can help us analyze the meaning of a symbol within our dreams:

I also give an example by reading about my personal symbol, The Scorpion, which has reoccured in various dreams around three times already.
