This week in the skies, Neptune begins its retrograde in Pisces on 23 June; Venus ends its retrograde and stations direct on 25 June.
Neptune retrogrades last for about five months. The planetary ruler of creativity and illusion, Neptune also rules the mutable Water sign of Pisces and is on its home turf here – as such, we can expect the energies of its retrograde to be pretty strong, despite the fact that it’s an outer planet.
For the next 150 days beginning 23 June, the Neptune retrograde will bring reality check after reality check. If you’ve been escaping the truth by living a lie, if you’ve been blaming other people, playing the victim, and/or using addictive behaviours to make excuses for the fact that you refuse to get your act together, this Neptune retrograde will make things rather challenging for you.
The best way to deal with Neptune retrogrades is to stick to the facts, address issues calmly and logically, and be honest with yourself and others. Drama queen antics are likely to backfire; lies and facades will be exposed. But live an honest, authentic life and you’ll be fine.
Happily, Venus stations direct on 25 June. We won’t have another Venus retrograde for another 1.5 years or so. Hopefully, you’ve been learning crucial Venus retrograde lessons about cultivating self-worth, achieving balance and harmony, reviewing relationships, and handling finances. It’s safe(r) to go ahead with that makeover now, haha!
And on to the reading! Note that all three Tarot cards this week are Major Arcana, meaning that there’s a certain degree of ‘predestination’ in coming events; their influence on us is likely to be quite powerful. As Singapore enters the first full week of Phase Two and the rest of the world stirs back to life after the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, you can be sure there will be huge changes coming our way.
LEFT: THE WORLD. The triumphant conclusion of one cycle leads to the beginning of the next. When The World appears as an anchor card in a reading, be assured that things have gone as well as they possibly could given the current circumstances. Now you’re ready to move forward to the next phase of growth and change.
MIDDLE: JUDGEMENT. But don’t get complacent, or celebrate prematurely. Judgement lies at the heart of this reading, meaning that you may think you’re moving forward – but the Universe is watching, and the Laws of Karma are always at work.
I’m not a Christian anymore, but I did attend theological seminary (i.e. Bible school… yes, I almost became a pastor/minister under the Anglican Church) and I’ve always loved this verse from Scripture:
Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.
The Book of Galatians, 6:7-8 (NIV)
When Judgement appears, a reckoning is imminent. A situation you’re facing could be reaching a crucial juncture in the near future. Major changes could be inevitable. Your choices and actions – in short, your karma – will determine how this situation develops.
Spirit is calling us to do better, live better, be better. The Universe is preparing Her tools to intervene. Seek the highest and greatest good in all you do, and She will be kind to you.
Do not be deceived: the Divine cannot be mocked. You will reap what you sow.
RIGHT: THE HIEROPHANT. If there’s one message that the Hierophant can give us in these turbulent times, it’s this: know what’s right, and do it.
There is wisdom in respecting authority and following the rules. This is not the time to rock the boat, but to practice personal + social responsibility. As the pandemic rages on, it will take all of us working together to get through this. And we will! So let’s honour the powers that be, do what’s right, and be wise.
(The next few paragraphs get a little intense. Click HERE to skip to the Goddess Divination lot if you’re only reading this article for divination purposes. If you’re here for Spiritual knowledge, keep reading.)
The Hierophant also speaks of Spiritual authority. Genuine Spiritual authority only comes from learning and growing through life’s many challenges. Calling yourself a Spiritual person, reading your horoscope, buying crystals etc won’t do diddly squat for your spiritual growth if you’re still not willing to take the ultimate examination: the trials and tribulations of life itself.
Unlike what some folks like to preach, no one is just granted “Spiritual power” without hard work. Everyone must begin at the beginning.
It’s this process of doing the inner work, connecting with the Divine and your Higher Self through hard-earned experience, that gives you real street cred in Spirituality. This is the price you pay if you truly want to be a Spiritual person.
You’ll know where you’re at in your Spiritual growth when even the Spirit realm knows who you are. Here’s a Biblical account of some folks who took the short cut and paid for it dearly:
13 Some Jews who went around driving out evil spirits tried to invoke the name of the Lord Jesus over those who were demon-possessed. They would say, “In the name of the Jesus whom Paul preaches, I command you to come out.” 14 Seven sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, were doing this. 15 One day the evil spirit answered them, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know about, but who are you?” 16 Then the man who had the evil spirit jumped on them and overpowered them all. He gave them such a beating that they ran out of the house naked and bleeding.
The Book of Acts, 19:13-16 (NIV, emphasis mine)
“Jesus I know, and Paul I know about, but who are you?” This simple question outlines how we are identified in the Spirit realm.
The demon knew Jesus directly, and probably very well. As an Ascended Master and an incarnation of the Divine Spirit, Jesus lived a life of the highest Love and Light. Thus, He was a fearsome threat to the realm of darkness, and His demonic enemies made sure they studied Him closely.
Paul was once a prosecutor of the early Church. He then had a Divine encounter after which he went blind for three days, and was finally healed by a disciple of Jesus. Thereafter, he dedicated his life to spreading the good news of Divine Love. So yes, definitely a threat to darkness and evil. Not in the same league as Jesus, but good enough to know about.
The seven sons of Sceva had no real relationship with the Divine, but knew all the right things to say and do. They probably paid good money to attend workshops and events. Maybe they had certificates; perhaps they even were well-known and respected in their community. But the Spirit realm did not recognise their authority.
Dear reader – be honest with your Spiritual identity and standing. Which category do you come under? Jesus? Paul? Or Son of Sceva?
(May the people who need to hear this message listen and learn.)
GODDESS GUAN YIN DIVINATION
LOT NUMBER 16
Put aside all worries and woes.
As the clouds clear, joy follows.
Like precious jade mired in dung,
A skilled craftsman will uncover its value.
(Trans. Tan Kelly)
This week, the Divine realm is reaching out a helping hand for those in need. When this lot is drawn, one is advised that 阴阳和合之象。凡所谋皆吉也。“Yin and Yang are aligned in harmony; what you seek will be given to you out of Divine grace”.
This element of Divine intervention continues with further explanation. The mundane interpretation of this lot is similarly karmic in nature:
得处无失 损中有益 小人逢凶 君子顺吉
“There will be gain, not loss. Out of disadvantage will come benefit. The villains will be punished; the Noble Ones, rewarded.”
Pray for the Goddess to look upon you with favour, to grant you blessing in accordance with the highest and greatest good. And for Goddess’s sake, keep your karma clean.
The Universe is watching, and the Laws of Karma are always at work.
Have a great week ahead.
