The Full Moon In The Southern Hemisphere

“Merlin In The Moon” by Springwolf 🐾

What Is The Name Of The Moon

As with all things in the world, where you are located will dictate how you associate this to that. Meaning and names of objects like the Moon vary around the world. Cultures assign names to each full moon based on their traditions, climate, animals, crops and how they view the world around them. There isn’t one complete list of this to that anywhere or for anything. There are many.

When it comes to Full Moon names, you can’t simply take a set of names from the North, reverse them and apply them to the South. This assumes we all look at things the same way through the same eyes. Imagine a Native American from the Cherokee Nation applying their moon names to the Aboriginal moon phases in Australia. It probably wouldn’t make sense to the folks who live down under.

But because Europeans settled in both the North and South, many of the moon names traveled with them to new lands and continents. In many ways this does a dis-service to the original peoples of the land in question and the names they came to know and associate with the Moon phases. Like the Tribal Nations in America, each group has its own language. The most common reference for the moon is Alkina and it’s associated with female energy. But try to find which Aboriginal Nation uses that word. I didn’t have any luck at all. Many words for the moon in other nations associate the moon with masculine energy. And that’s just Australia.

The Maori are the first people of New Zealand. They brought their Polynesian Mythology and the name of Moon with them to the land of the Kiwis. Here the Moon gets her name from the Goddess Marama, who governs the Moon and Death.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Knave of Wands

Knave of Wands

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

It’s ok to hide under the mushrooms and think. You don’t have to be the center of attention or the class clown that makes everyone laugh. Let everyone else fend for themselves today and you take care of you. Get some rest, relax and do some frivolous thinking through the weekend. You’ll feel better by Monday.

Additional Insight:

Hidden under the shrooms is a lot of fertile ground. You can do some good thinking under there. So it’s ok if you want some space and feel the need to be alone. But let others know you’re not mad at them, or their liable to think the worst and imagine all sorts of things.

Today you can hide away and get some things done that have been piling up. Through the weekend, pull the covers up, stay warm and get some extra sleep. You’ve earned it and more importantly you may need it to stay off a cold. It’s ok to think of yourself right now. But don’t suffer in silence or others may not understand your need for rest.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Judgement

Major Arcana Judgement

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Don’t be afraid to call out for what you need. Asking for help isn’t a sign of weakness. It takes courage to admit you need assistance. Stop thinking you’re a burden or you’re going to be judged harshly. Those fears will only create negative interactions. Toot your own horn and describe the accomplishments you’ve made. You’ll find the help you need, because you deserve it and you’ve earned it.

Additional Insight:

To often we don’t want to appear weak in the eyes of others. So we suffer in silence, or feel those close to us should simply know we need assistance. And when it doesn’t come, we turn the judgement on them and tell ourselves ‘they don’t care’.

We put way too much value on the judgements of others. They don’t define who we are, unless we give up that control over our own life. Their opinions really have no assessment to our current situation, path or life. They’re not perfect and have their own flaws and lessons to face and learn. The only judgement that matters is what you think of yourself.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: King of Swords – Inverted

King of Swords - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Be careful where you tread as emotions are in delicate balance today. Banish the negative influences that hover around you. Fill the void with faith that everything is going to be ok. Strength and fortitude will get you through the concern of the day. It’s a day of compassion, but remember you need to be compassionate to yourself first. You deserve it too.

Additional Insight:

There are two astrological influences to think about this week. The waning moon which reminds us to let go of the negative and replace it with the positive. Stop the bad habits, especially those that cause you to replay the negative self talk. Walk away from the toxic people who do nothing but suck your energy and leave you drained. End the fight with those who thrive on confrontation. They can’t push your buttons if you refuse to stay on the battlefield.  Quite often, walking away is the best way to win the war.

The second influence comes from the subtle energy shift of the coming Mercury Retrograde that begins on April 28th and will last through May 22nd. This retrograde impacts all communication, written and spoken. Make sure you’re getting questions answered and resolve details that have you confused before the 28th! Miscommunication is likely to make your emotions imagine the worst and bring your energy down even further.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Two of Cups – Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Be careful what you’re fishing around for today. You may not like what you find. Spend the day on more productive things and stop worrying about what’s going on behind you. Let the past be and focus on the future. If you need to know, you’ll be told. Otherwise stop imagining things that aren’t there. Trust that you’re being taken care of and that everything is going to be alright. Because it will be.

Additional Insight:

At some point you need to trust that things are going according to your plan and the Divine force in your life is guiding you right where you need to be. You may think you “want” something else. But it’s not really what you “need” and you know it. Stop being scared of where the eventual plan is taking you. If something is going on behind your back, then maybe that situation, or that person, aren’t meant to be part of your future plan. Let it go and move on to things that are more important and that support the preferred path you need to be on. Continue reading

Four of Swords - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

You’ve had a nice rest, now it’s time to get busy and get to work. Surround yourself with those who care most about you and you’ll over come any adversity that has been sent your way in these past months, weeks or days. You have the strength to endure, now use that fortitude to rise up and win the day!

Swords aren’t only for fighting, they can also represent triumph and success. And that’s what you’re holding in your hands today. Your strength to endure and overcome has given you a great deal of respect from your friends and peers. Don’t dismiss that appreciation for the fight you went through. And don’t over look that accomplishment. It’s a big deal in the scheme of things. Pay attention to your blessings and take a moment to appreciate the accolades.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Queen of Pentacles

Queen of Pentacles

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Your shoulders are bare because you’re not carrying as much as you think you are. Get out of the dooms day attitude. You know your thoughts create your reality, so stop thinking the worst. It’s not going to happen, unless you attract the negative and manifest your fear. You have plenty to get you through. Stop worrying!

Additional Insight:

You’re still expecting the other shoe to drop because things seem the same as they were back in the beginning. But they’re not the same. You have changed and not just a little bit. You’ve grown much more than you believe you have. You’ve learned just how strong you really are and how much you can handle and get through.

That realized strength will carry you through the little challenges you face today. And yes, they’re little. They’re not the mountain you’re trying to think they are. If you keep focusing on that giant mountain of the past, you’re going to rebuild the problems and face them all over again. It really is all in your head. At some point you must release the fear of the past and welcome the magik of the future. Continue reading
