I have finally succeeded, after all this time and with all this heaven-sent help, in getting this manuscript OFF my computer and into the hands of the editor and art director. I feel 1000 lbs lighter now that it's in the hands the physical "makers" of the book, even if it's only moved across the house, to Michael's computer. Wheeeee! My feet are barely touching the earth as I walk.
This month's NewMoon is happening in the last degree of Aquarius, right at the cusp of Pisces. This puts both Sun and Moon in line to cross Neptune as the NewMoon kiss beaks up. Translated into Tarot Trumps, this is the Priestess/Fool combination passing through the exit-door of the realm of The Moon (#18, Aquarius), already stepping over the threshold to the realm of The Sun (#19, Pisces ). Neptune/Death promises to teach the realities that open to the soul when it can sense beyond the experience of the body. The Priestess (Moon) will cross over Neptune in the next 24 hours, but The Fool (Sun) will take a little longer than a week to complete this process and break free from Neptune's aura. Expect a certain boggle-factor to prevail despite everybody's best efforts to be clear and stay calm. Taking the Priestess/Fool pair as the two lobes of the brain, literate and intuitive respectively, I infer that the period of deep questioning and investigation (the month of Aquarius) is passing in favor of a time where all dichotomies are dissolved and a transcendent viewpoint is established (Neptune in Pisces). Stay open to a revelation that puts everything that came before into a new and brighter context.
