This post was written during a waxing moon in the sign of Aries on a day ruled by Jupiter.
Oh, my! The Aries moon explains my foul mood yesterday. I was born under an Aries moon and for some reason I am not "always my best" when the moon is in this sign.
I am going to try to get back on more regular tarot posts. To jump start my ambition again, I ordered a new deck. This one is called "Pixies Astounding lLenormand." LINK
I have been thinking about trying a lenormand deck, but hadn't decided on one yet. Then I found this one, which mixes some of the rider-waite images with the lenormand symbolism. I am hoping this will be an intuitive deck. If you want to find out more about Lenormand decks go HERE.
Obviously, I can't write more about this deck until I have some time with it. Stay tuned.
Jeanne from "The Land of Melting Shadows" wrote a very interesting piece recently LINK about genetic memory. It was quite thought provoking and I found myself musing on it several times yesterday. Recently I wrote about my inclusion of certain Catholic practices in my spiritual habits and I do believe that while my attachment to some of these practices come from my upbringing, it also has to do with the long line of Catholics in my family lineage. Since I am quite "loose" as far as my practice goes, I am easily drawn to ways that feel right, and also those that feel familiar. I am sure some of these come from my genetic memory.
It occurred to me the other day that what prompted me to become a spiritual explorer was to test out something new, something discovered in my wanderings rather that that which was handed down throughout the generations. Coming full circle, I see that everything is connected, and beliefs are not as unique as we may think. Still, there are some that feel more "familiar" and these I believe are probably the beliefs of the people in my bloodline, the stuff that resonates with me for no other known reason.
I am trying not to overthink this, as I am content to have found comfort in my beliefs and practices, a feeling I have longed to experience. As we head into the return of Spring I look forward to exploring life with a more open mind, while keeping and honoring the old practices.
It's a beautifully bright and sunny. I hope you all have a wonderful day.
