Daily Tarot Reflection – 23 Jan 2018 – The Princess of Keys Reversed

Last week’s new moon initiated eclipse season—a period of time during which things can be intense, during which there can be dramatic and/or rapid openings and closings. In a way, eclipse season can be like a tornado. A tornado is the result of two opposing air systems coming together and creating a third system that is volatile, fast moving, and unpredictable. The month and a half season that relates directly to Eclipses includes a lunar eclipse and a solar eclipse—two opposite energies both being diminished to expose that which couldn’t be seen before. Eclipse season, too, can be volatile, fast moving, and unpredictable. Today marks the half point between the new moon and the full moon/full lunar eclipse. The Princess of Keys has the ability to cut through the turbulence, the acuity to shift quickly with the wind. After all, she too is ruled by air. When she’s reversed, perhaps these capacities are eclipsed or blurred in some way. Yesterday I wrote about experiencing a “new normal”. Often, part of accepting a new reality following loss or change facilitates the strengthening of a capacity that previously was limited or that you didn’t even know existed inside of you. The Princess of Keys uses her mind to navigate – she’s ruled by her intellect. But I wonder what happens when the intellect is eclipsed … perhaps she needs to tap into something else. Things like, oh I don’t know, her intuition and her heart. Things can get a little intense with a moon that was born in Capricorn and will be eclipsed in Leo. Capricorn isn’t known so much for its heart. It’s Aquarius season. Aquarius rules social networks and is one of the most social signs. Aquarius fights for THE IDEAS of equality and humanitarian issues. But when the rubber hits the road, Aquarius isn’t really about having to deal with actual humans. That’s what its opposing sign, Leo, is for. Today, maybe your intellect can’t serve your end goal. Don’t be afraid to ease up a little bit. Don’t be afraid to reach for your other capacities. Rest your mind. Engage your intuition. Think with your heart. Ache 🙏🏼
