We live in tempestuous times, encountering the Tarot’s Tower in our personal and collective lives on a daily basis it seems.
And while the Tower’s destruction can’t be dismissed, there is also an invitation for those seekers who desire to see below or rise above the chaos to do the work of shifting consciousness from the carnage of collapse to the possibility of remaking the Tower’s fallen stones into something utterly different, better, more beautiful. Magic has often been called the art of shifting consciousness.
So, yes, we can be said to live in magical times. Along with the tempest, we are invited to make magic.
The magic being tended this lunar year in Soul Path Sanctuary is Love. Our sense of Love will grow as we go through the year, but the sparking inspirations are James Baldwin’s words: “ Love takes off the masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within. I use the word ‘love” here not in the personal sense, but as a state of being, or a state of grace – not in the infantile American sense of being made happy but in the tough and universal sense of quest and daring and growth.”
The Love we seek is a Love renewing itself through the Tower encounter, a Love partnering with Justice, a Love tending our Soul selves.
A moonthly missive will arrive in your inbox right around the new moon including a reading inspired by the new moon’s astrological placement, musings – or perhaps poems – on Love, and, as 2018 is the year of Justice (2+1+8+11), a revising of last year’s work on the Faces and Spaces of Justice.
My wish for my e-news readers this year is to offer you support for moving through these chaotic times with reminders of and practices for weaving Love, Beauty, Justice, and Joy as constantly renewing possibilities into your life.
Please join me.
