A Full Moon (Eclipse) Birthday Reading For the United States of America And a Poignant Message
As many of you know I am a big fan of checking in on things around your birthday. It is when I do my own annual Update Reading for myself.
And, many of you know I sometimes have the time and energy to do a July 4th Reading for the U.S.A.
I did a Pentacross Tarot Reading earlier today, however, I also wanted to update the Astrological transits affecting the US at this time, so it will take me a bit longer to get the full article to you.
I thought I would just share the images and names of the cards with you now for you to contemplate on this 244th Birthday of our nation.
I do want to point out that the Full Moon Eclipse, which will be exact at 12:44 am on the East Coast is exactly conjunct/opposite the Sun in Cancer of the United States.
As far as the Tarot Reading, as one might expect, it is a little heavy. There is basically only one really good card in this Reading. It is, however, in the future. When that is the case for a client, I would say to them at some point during the Reading: “Well, if you are only going to have one good card in your Reading, having it in the future is a good place to have it.”
Of course, when I write these articles of a large collective scope and influence, I am always contemplating what enlightening and, hopefully, uplifting kind of ending I can give to it. This time, however, I am grateful to have found a quote that was sent to me by the author Isabel Allende that captures in a poignant fashion what I might try to say in my own way. So, I will end this 4th of July newsletter with her words.
I will be back soon with the full article.
From Isabel Allende
Locked up in her home with her husband and two dogs, the Chilean writer has lived in the United States for 30 years.
Consulted by the main fear of the virus, * which is death *, the writer said that since her daughter Paula died, 27 years ago, she lost her fear forever: “First, because I saw her die in my arms, and I realized that death is like birth, it’s a transition, a threshold, and I lost fear personally. Now, if I get the virus, I belong to the most vulnerable population, the elderly, I’m 77 years old and I know if I get it I’m going to die. Then the possibility of death comes very clear to me right now, I see it curious and without any fear.
What the pandemic has taught me is to drop things, realize how little I need. I don’t need to shop, I don’t need to go anywhere, or travel. I think I have too much. I look around and tell myself why all this. What do I need more than two dishes for.
Afterwards, realizing who the real friends and people I want to be with.
What do you think the pandemic teaches us all? He’s teaching us priorities and showing us a reality. The reality of inequality. How some people spend the pandemic on a yacht in the Caribbean, and other people are going hungry.
He has also taught us that we are one family. What happens to a human being in Wuhan, happens to the planet, happens to all of us. There’s no tribal idea that we’re separated from the group and that we can defend the group while the rest of the people scrub. There are no walls, no walls that can separate people.
Creators, artists, scientists, all young people, many women, are considering a new normal. They don’t want to go back to what was normal. They’re wondering what world we want. That’s the most important question right now. That dream from a different world: that’s where we have to go.
And I reflect: I realized at some point that one comes into the world to lose everything. The more one lives, the more he loses. You lose your parents first, sometimes very loved people around you, your pets, places and your own faculties too. You can’t live in fear, because it makes you imagine what hasn’t happened yet and you suffer twice as much. We need to relax a little, try to enjoy what we have and live in the present “.
