The Sun

What a great way to start the New Year!

Today’s card — the Sun — comes from the Black Cats Tarot deck illustrated by Maria Kuara and distributed by Llewellyn. The sheer playfulness depicted in this card is enough to make anyone smile.

You may have woken up today glad to put the old year behind you and looking forward to the new one.  There’s a “New Lease on Life” aspect to this card, a sense of vitality, promise and anticipation for the future.

if you’re reflecting on the past — and especially on changes you expected to see over the last 12 months that never quite came to fruition, now is the time to do something about it.

In traditional versions of this card, we see a small child seated before the Sun, reinforcing the Sun card’s connection to being “born anew.”

This rendition conjures up similar images, albeit of the feline variety. Here we see two black cats romping gleefully atop a field of vibrant sunflowers.

The Sun rises in the distance, illuminating the tiny dragonflies and hummingbirds that share their sacred space. All are joyfully “in the moment” — impervious to any danger or outside diversions.

This is the essence of the Sun card. It speaks of optimism, enthusiasm, courage and hope.

Ace of Swords

ARIES: Ace of Swords

The Ace of Swords stands for intellect.

It gives you a fast paced way of thinking and is good for study, thinking ideas through thoroughly and making plans.

You may experience a myriad of thoughts this month and who can tell where they will lead you but one thing is certain if you keep your wits about you and think clearly you will come up with new ideas for old problems along with a different way of executing them.

Words can cut like a knife, they can also heal when applied correctly.

If you have anything you have been wanting to say to someone and have not been sure of how to say it you may find that this month your thoughts lead you to a new conclusion in how to best present your argument in a way that it will be heard.



The Sun and Moon: Astrology’s “Heavenly Bodies”

Sun and Moon my Jess Starwood

Astrologically speaking, most people know their Sun signs. You’ll hear people say “I’m a Leo” or “I’m a water sign (referring to Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces Sun signs),” or “I was born on the Virgo/Libra cusp.”

And many believe that that’s all there is to it. Nothing could be further from the truth!

The Moon sign is not only just as important as the Sun sign, sometimes it’s even more important.

Eastern astrologers, for example, are more interested in Moon signs than Sun signs, and in many areas almost everyone knows their own Moon sign from an early age.
