Tonight we’ll see a blue moon. This doesn’t refer to the actual colour, but rather to its infrequent occurrence. A blue moon is the second full moon in the space of one calendar month. The next one won’t happen until 2015. Any full moon is a time of fruition, ripeness, maturity, full manifestation, pinnacles. Tonight is a time to double the chances of making things happen.
This begs the question, “What are we asked by Life to bring to full fruition in 2012?” The card, drawn from the Medicine Woman Tarot, is Healing/Strength, the eighth Major card in this deck. On a literal level, the tarot may be suggesting that we’re asked to bring healing and strength to fruition. For me, it’s often a card about survival, so we’re asked to bring ways to survive these times (at any cost?) to fruition as well. What also wants to come to maturity is our primal, animal, instinctive nature, the remembrance that we are not separate from Nature, but a part of it.
A blessed Blue Moon to all of you!
