THE SUN CARD
from THE GOLDEN DAKINI TAROT
Spring is unfolding outside as we stay in our isolated, internal worlds here in the north – and crave the glory of the SUN after this hard winter. Having been entirely immersed in creating a new deck of Tarot cards through the winter and spring, I will be unveiling them one by one, as I complete the deck. And will slowly introduce them… a compilation of years of images, most of the cards incorporate my photographic work with painted bodies. My visionary journey into the magical world of Tarot, interpreted in my own style – combining painting, photography and symbolism, merged through modern digital processes is psychedelic in inspiration and perspective; shamanic, contemporary yet timeless. Creating the deck is an ongoing journey. Its magic and mystery unfold daily as I do … I hope to have it completed and unveiled by Summer’s end.
Titania and Oberon, the Fairy Lovers unite, and Spring blossoms with their passion.
Venus slips from Pisces to Aries… Her body is touched by flames as she rushes now, to meet her lover Mars, who calls to her.Venus is on fire and has no patience …she leaves the angel wings of Pisces behind, letting them drop like an unneeded costume. She feels her passion ignite and slips into the beckoning flames.
Blessing us with their beauty, the roses bloom, celebrating Midsummer. Regardless of the madness of our human world and the aspects of the stars. they whisper love as summer graces our world once again… filling me with inspiration.
The Dreamer and the Moon … from ” The Dreamer”series, Natasha Von
Aedh Wishes For The Cloths Of Heaven
Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
— William Butler Yeats
The northern world is slowly and tenderly coming back to life…
my new work, new series… Primavera…
An Angel appears in the heavens above us… A magical window opens between eclipses, between the new moon’s solar eclipse and the lunar eclipse at the next full moon. Opening into a new dimension, it only appears between the eclipses. They come in pairs; cycles of ending and new beginning, opening and closing doors, welcoming us to step into the next unfolding of our journey… Each eclipse is an initiation into a new cycle, a new mystery.
The Angel beckons to us…We can step through the portal into a new vibration – a new vortex of energy with its own colours and tones.The Sun, Mercury and Neptune are clustered in the sign of Pisces, the two fish. We all feel the pull of the Mystic now… Neptune rules here, in his own element and watery sign joined by Chiron, Ceres and the South Node, and will soon be joined by Venus. Pisces is the sign of her sign of exaltation… and she shines as she pours her affections down upon us like liquid love. We are feeling the concerted power of the planets now, and can receive a healing of our deepest wounds if we surrender to this rare opening. Our emotions are flowing in response to the cosmic pull as the Angel sings to us… Pisces flows with feeling and devotion and Neptune rules inspiration and music. We can feel tenderness welling up, pulling at our hearts to open the flood gates and be released like fish to swim free in a sea of boundless love… and we must listen. The sign of Pisces sings to us with a Mermaid’s irresistible voice and holds the key to all the mysteries. She breathes love, surrender and devotion. The last sign is the sign of completion; here the Angel gracefully spreads her wings to enfold us all with her tenderness… She holds the secret of the selfless heart,opening us to a higher love.
Yesterday was a double day, a day of two ones, the number eleven… a leap year day that will not return for another six years, or is it seven ? We have been gifted with a few days of gentler aspects in this tension filled sky. Pisces softness is fuzzing the edges of our Sun; two fish swimming in different directions. Neptune rules the skies now. In his own sign, surrounded by Chiron, Ceres and the South Node of the Moon as he joins the Sun, he infuses the sky with his watery power and a soft blue turquoise haze falls upon us all… We see only what we want to see… Swept into our inner wonderlands, what better to do than dream… and birth new realities that we desire ?
Pisces rules dreams, illusions, sorrows and selfless love. Our vulnerabilities are being exposed, and with Mars in Scorpio for a lengthy few months as he retrogrades, secrets are being released. Chiron both opens deep wounds and heals them. We can pray now for our own inner wounds to be healed, along with deep healing for our collective soul while Ceres, the Mother Goddess sings to us of universal love in this twelfth sign and last sign, the sign of universal consciousness… and the subconscious world. Pisces is the completion of a cycle and merging with the Divine.
This is a time for creative dreaming, visualization and prayer… We can imagine, visualize and dream our new realities into being as this cosmic door opens to welcome us. Edges will blur and new dimensions and worlds we create can welcome us if we can surrender and ask this spirit of selflessness and softness to penetrate our opening hearts.
