Today’s oracle reading is for the late summer period which we are currently in for those in the Southern Hemisphere, it runs from the Summer Solstice to the start of Autumn.
I picked a card from the left pile, the Yin side, that represents our internal state, and a card from the right pile, the Yang side, that represents our relationship to the outer world.
🌙 The Yin card THE MOON reads: “For flowing creativity, unique artistry, lush growth and abundant blossoming, tap into your dreams, the unconscious, the fertile field of wild, untethered imagination”
Indeed this card is probably the most Yin in the whole deck. Traditionally the moon represents the feminine, the hidden, the imagination and dreams. How does this relate to what is happening in your life? Perhaps you are formulating a new creation or idea which hasn’t fully bloomed but is being processed in your deep unconscious, ready to be birthed.
🦚 The Yang card THE HIEROPHANT reads: “Lay your gifts at the altar, offer your learning, share your knowledge, your battles won, your blessings bestowed, your understanding of this beautiful world”
This card is very Yang in the sense that it’s very action-orientated, it speaks about doing and being ‘out there’. I’ve used a peacock in this picture and they are very flamboyant birds, happy to show off their beauty, happy to expand their feathers and to stand out from the crowd. I also mentioned in the video the peacock’s ability to digest the poison of the cobra without causing himself any harm. This is about the ability to assimilate our experiences and to turn them into usable creations. If you are faced with a challenge, how can you turn that into something creative and beautiful? In traditional tarot, the Hierophant is often a male figure of authority that may be a teacher, a counsellor or, it sometimes represents a marriage... a union of opposites.
🌅 Interestingly enough, the late summer season is governed by the stomach and the spleen - both of which are used for the purposes of digestion and assimilation. The transition from Summer to Autumn is one of transformation, it is a time for purpose, intent and integrity.
🎭 For me this spread speaks to bringing out my inner creativity that has been gaining momentum in the deep unconscious, and marrying that to the outside world. It speaks of courage and bravery, it’s encouraging me to show my full light and colour to the world. What does it mean to you?
