That pesky Aries Moon

That pesky Aries moon..

Waxing Crescent

In all honesty, I have not been immune to the high tension brought on by the waxing crescent in Aries. The universe has been heavy, responsibilities are mounting. I’ve done a few readings within this particular time frame and have had similar outcomes; even my cards can feel the extra weight. And yes, we do harbor a great deal of discretion in reading our cards intuitively, but when both you and your cards are in a funk, readings can be a little perplexing for the already scattered brain. The aforementioned inherently concludes a lack of “spare” time in which to sit down and ground yourself, focus your thoughts, and free your spirit. This means that you have to find the time and the place – the atmosphere will not simply hand it to you. So I am no exception. My brain map has been a tangled web and my thoughts have been twirling recklessly. I have been overworked and under the weather creatively. The moon and universal vibrations are clearly not alone at fault for these factors being as they are. There are a few much less organic contributions to my stoic nature being tested – the things I can control – I think we’ve talked about this before – and I am still learning to take the reins despite myself.

Being born on the waxing crescent myself, I know that in these pressing times is when I shine. I was born to withstand the lightning storms in order to enjoy and embrace the clear skies. It’s what my entire existence has been and certainly why I’m made of quiet bravado and unambiguous bullheadedness. I would not have that any other way.

The really good news is, tonight we transition into Taurus and the Spring Equinox is upon us (Ostara, if you will)! This time is so incredibly welcomed right now. This phase provides a beautiful time to grow, to restart. Make plans in which to follow through with. Start a project you’ve been putting off. Make decisions that will make a difference in your pursuits. Now is the time. Be fertile, adventurous, curious, and dominant. Embrace discomfort and struggle and accept these feelings as a challenge to get through to clear skies. If you need to cry it out, write it out, shout it out, work it out, create it out, whatever it is you might need to do, do it. Rid yourself of it…

And then wake up tomorrow to a brand new day. Accept and embrace the changes you’ve promised to make within yourself and in your environment. Keep yourself safe and protected, of course, but let your hair down for the ride. You were created for more than the stress and the mundane – you are beautiful and unique and as powerful as you believe you are. Let the beginning of Spring be the beginning of more than just a season for you.

  1. regarding the card Maiden of Wands, in this reading and position, what does the fox symbolize ?

    I’m not sure why I’m bent on this but internet isn’t helping a lot.

    1. If you would like to know exactly which spread this is, please email us and I will let you know! But to more specifically answer your question, the maiden of wands is a card of wildness & freedom. In this particular deck (similarly to the Wild Unknown decks) there is added emphasis on nature & animals. I can appreciate this as my connection is strongest within nature & animals. It does, however, bring about more speculation of interpretation.
      In this particular position & spread, I am inclined to interpret the fox as symbolizing maneuverability & discernment. While the maiden herself is often mildly naively and curiously free in the world around her, the fox is alongside her to keep her out of the traps that she may encounter. This card in this position means that freedom is calling & and decisions must be made, but they must be made both courageously (maiden) and wisely (fox). I look at them as having a partnership which is mutually beneficial. There is a lot more to be said about this card, but in regards to the fox, that’s my take (:
