XVIII – The Moon – Pisces
The earth is the centre of an imaginary circle called the zodiac. This zodiac is divided into twelve segments called signs, and each sign depicts certain traits. When all of the twelve characteristics are combined together they form the whole, or unity. The Sun, Moon, planets, and asteroids orbit the zodiac and are therefore positioned in the various signs that help determine what influences will be present depending on the time and place. By casting a horoscope based on the exact time, date, and place of birth, much can be gleaned about the joys, happiness and successes, problems and lessons that will be prevalent during the life of the person or event.
Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, exemplifies its ambitious attitude by asserting it as the conqueror, emperor, warrior, or soldier of fortune. Aries is aggressive and forceful, and uses its energy to get what it desires. Aries has a great deal of enthusiasm for life and a sense of untamed daring, and early explorers of untamed wilderness have exemplified this sense of adventuresome. In astrology, Aries is ruled by the planet Mars and in turn rules the first house of the horoscope. In Tarot, Aries rules The Emperor in the Major Arcana and Ace, 2, and 3 of Wands in the Minor Arcana.
Taurus, the second sign of the zodiac, comes into being when the farmers are ploughing the fields and planting the crops. Taurus is fertile, voluptuous, sensual, practical, earthy, and materialistic. Taurus loves to be surrounded by luxury and is primarily concerned with accumulating wealth and prosperity. Don’t be fooled by Taurus’ sensual and pleasant nature because its stubbornness, combined with endurance and stamina, make it a formidable foe when its path has been crossed. In astrology, Taurus rules the second house of the horoscope and is ruled by Venus. In Tarot, Taurus rules The Hierophant in the Major Arcana, and 4, 5, and 6 of Pentacles in the Minor Arcana.
Gemini, the third sign of the zodiac, comes into season as the weather warms up enough so people want to go places, visit friends, and socialize. Gemini is mental, active, and witty, it enjoys light, airy social contact, and is very communicative. Being the twins, Gemini often displays two personalities and can appear dualistic at times. Since Gemini has the gift of the gab, it has been known to spread rumours and gossip if other stabilizing influences are not present. In astrology Gemini rules the third house of the horoscope and is ruled by Mercury. In the Tarot, Gemini rules The Lovers in the Major Arcana, and 7, 8, and 9 of Swords in the Minor Arcana.
Cancer, the fourth sign of the zodiac, is intuitive, sensitive, and emotional, The love Cancer sends out is pure and simple because she only wants to love, and in turn be loved. When confronted. Cancer normally reacts based upon emotions rather than intellect, and this can cause some difficulties if she is not able to control her behaviour. Cancer is very protective of her home and family, and can consequently appear grasping and clinging if she feels she is not in control. In astrology, Cancer rules the fourth house of the horoscope and is ruled by the Moon. It should be noted that in ancient astrology the Moon was assigned rulership over only this sign while the other planets (with the exception of the Sun) were each allocated two signs to rule, one sign being active and the other inactive. This indicates that Cancer is a very powerful sign in its own right and encompasses both active and passive attributes. In the Tarot, Cancer rules the Chariot in the Major Arcana, and Ace, 2 and 3 of Cups in the Minor Arcana.
The Sun moves through Leo, the fifth sign of the zodiac, at the height of summer. People are laughing, singing, and enjoying themselves, and romance is in the air as lovers can be seen walking hand in hand throughout the long summer days. Just like children can be seen playing happily in the parks and streets during this carefree, enjoyable time. Resorts are full of vacationers who simply want to bask in the sun and enjoy their holiday. It should be noted that in ancient astrology the Sun was assigned rulership over only this sign where each planet (with the exception of the Moon) was allocated two signs to rule, one being active and the other passive. This indicates that Leo is a very powerful sign in its own right as it encompasses both active and passive genders. In astrology, Leo rules the fifth house of the horoscope and is ruled by the Sun. In the Tarot, Leo rules Strength in the Major Arcana, and 5, 6, and 7 of Wands in the Minor Arcana.
After everyone has had their yearly dose of fun, Virgo, the sixth sign of the zodiac, calls people back to work as this is the month to harvest and preparation for the long winter ahead. Virgo goes about her duties in an efficient and unassuming manner, and can actually become embarrassed when others rake notice of her accomplishments. She is concerned about health and hygiene, and is therefore likely to have a neat, clean house. In astrology, Virgo rules the sixth house of the horoscope, and is ruled by the planet Mercury. In the Tarot, Virgo rules The Hermit in the Major Arcana, and 7, 8, and 9 of Pentacles in the Minor Arcana.
Sooner or later people start thinking about making a permanent commitment to one another, and that’s where Libra, the seventh sign of the zodiac, comes in. Libra is involved with all close relationships and partnerships. Because there is a fine line between love and hate, it should not be surprising to note that Libra also governs both close friendships and open enemies. Libra tries to be fair, but at times can appear judgemental. It tries to stay balanced, but only the weight of a feather gently placed on its scales can upset this complex harmony. In astrology. Libra rules the seventh house of the horoscope, and is ruled by the planer Venus. In the Tarot, Libra rules Justice in the Major Arcana, and Ace, 2, and 3 of Swords in the Minor Arcana.
Is it not surprising to find that after the crops have been harvested, the days have chilled, and people have returned to the warm confines of their homes, they finally have time to go deep within themselves and reflect upon their achievements and defeats. This is the effect that the eighth sign of the zodiac has on our deepest reflections. The emotions inherent in Scorpio are so extreme that compulsive or vindictive behaviour is not uncommon. Scorpio’s introspection allows people to honestly look within themselves, find out what needs to be transformed or healed, and emerge renewed and rejuvenated. Scorpio is good at keeping secrets. One of Scorpio s best-kept secrets is that death is but a veil that people must pass through so that they can be reborn anew into bodies stronger and wiser than before. In astrology, Scorpio rules the eighth house of the horoscope, and is co-ruled by Mars and Pluto. In the Tarot, Scorpio rules Judgement in the Major Arcana, and 4, 5 and 6 of Cups in the Minor Arcana.
Such introspection and healing can leave a being quite sombre and that’s where Sagittarius, the ninth sign of the zodiac, comes into play. Sagittarius’ optimism and joviality make him the life of the party. Sagittarius also has a philosophical side as he seeks answers to religious, spiritual, or esoteric questions posed by philosophers throughout the ages. In his quest for knowledge, he has become wise and understanding, and is usually able to give sound advice when consulted. In astrology, Sagittarius rules the ninth house of the horoscope and is ruled by Jupiter. In the Tarot, Sagittarius rules Temperance in the Major Arcana, and 7, 8, and 9 of Wands in the Minor Arcana.
Capricorn, the tenth sign of the zodiac, instils responsibility, practicality, and discipline into our lives. Capricorn helps people become successful because it gives them a sense of purpose. Because Capricorn wants to be respected, it is very much concerned about its status and reputation in the community. Yes, it is true that Capricorn is materialistic and firmly grounded to the earth, but it does have a deeply hidden emotional side as well. It must be remembered that the symbol for Capricorn is a goat with a fish tail. People all too often play up the rugged image of the goat trying to climb up the mountain and quietly dismiss the fish tail that is earnestly swimming in a sea of emotion. Alas, poor Capricorn is often misunderstood and people sometimes fail to appreciate the much-needed grounding this sign provides. It should also be noted that ancient oriental drawings depict this sign placement as a fish or crab, so it may actually be that in the distant past this sign was in fact considered to be a water element. Therefore, the modern symbolism of a sea-goat may be an attempt to obtain symmetry between ancient emotional sensitivity and New Age practicality. In astrology, Capricorn rules the tenth house of the horoscope and is ruled by Saturn. In the Tarot, Capricorn rules The Devil in the Major Arcana, and 2, 3, and 4 of Pentacles in the Minor Arcana.
Aquarius, the eleventh sign of the zodiac, is intellectual, social, and thinks about future developments. In the symbology of this sign, the water bearer is seen to be pouring a jug of fluid into a larger mass of water. The contents of the jug represent the knowledge he is carrying, and this act of pouring the liquid into a larger mass illustrates him disseminating knowledge to humanity. While Aquarius is friendly and sociable, it is also aloof, detached, and difficult to get close to, as evidenced by the fact that Aquarians as a rule have many acquaintances but few true friends. Aquarius dreams of a Utopian society where there is no pain, suffering, or inequality. In astrology, Aquarius rules the eleventh house and is co-ruled Saturn and Uranus. In the Tarot, Aquarius rules The Star in the Major Arcana, and 4, 5, and 6 of Swords in the Minor Arcana.
Pisces seeks to stretch beyond the reality of here and now, and search for clues to past, present, and future worlds, which is one of the reasons why Pisces normally responds to psychic impressions rather than cold, hard facts. In astrology, Pisces rules the twelfth house and is co-ruled by Jupiter and Neptune. In Tarot, Pisces is said to rule The Moon in the Major Arcana. More appropriately, Pisces is likely to co-rule The Moon and Lilith, the Earth’s second esoteric satellite, and the 8, 9, and 10 of Cups in the Minor Arcana.
After people have been given the gift of knowledge, they soon begin to realize that the more they know, the more they don’t know. At the vast immensity of this gulf of awareness, which is yet to be understood, they begin to ask spiritual questions such as:
• Who is responsible for the rules under which the universe was built?
• Is there more to reality than meets the eye?
• Why are these unfounded feelings so strong?
Concepts of astrology were used in the design of the Tarot, with the subtle symbolism and characteristics enmeshed in each card. Each card in the Tarot is assigned a specific astrological planet or sign to help provide greater clarity when reading the oracle.
A basic understanding of the traditional planets, signs, and houses will immensely aid the student of Tarot and help in speeding up the learning process, which must inevitably transpire for one to become proficient in this art.
Planets are considered celestial bodies that orbit the zodiac and vibrate at their own unique frequency to affect different areas of our lives. Many astrologers have also begun to UK hide some of the larger asteroids in their astrological interpretations because these bodies tend to present more refined psychological influences, which are becoming more apparent in our increasingly complicated lifestyles. Although the Sun and Moon are technically not planets, they are classified as such because they too are celestial bodies that appear to encircle the zodiac when using geocentric, or earth-centered astrology. The nodes of the Moon, while not actual planets themselves, have an important influence and are also taken into consideration when delineating a natal horoscope.
The Sun is the center of our solar system without its life-giving light and heat there would be no life on earth as we know it. The Sun is happy, vibrant, and romantic, it displays childlike enthusiasm, and represents the basic nature of a person. In astrology, the Sun rules Leo and the fifth house of the horoscope. In Tarot, it rules the Sun in the Major Arcana, and 4, 5, and 6 of Wands in the Minor Arcana.
The Moon is the largest satellite to orbit the Earth and represents feelings and emotional reactions. It is intuitive, sensitive, and often symbolizes mother figures. The Moon is very protective and nurturing, so it may at times cling to persons or situations when it should just let go. In astrology, the Moon rules Cancer and the fourth house. In larot the Moon rules the High Priestess and The Moon in the Major Arcana, and Ace, 2, and 3 of Cups in the Minor Arcana.
Lilith is Earth’s second satellite and has often been called the dark goddess. While her sister, the Moon, symbolises traditionally accepted female roles, Lilith represents the darker side of femininity that people generally prefer not to speak about. Lilith has no time for emotional outbursts and can often seem cold uncaring. She has no need of men, so is therefore often symbolised as, a single or divorced woman. Although many do not attribute Lilith to any particular card, she should share rulership or the High Priestess with The Moon because she more closely identifies with the qualities represented in this card.
Mercury is the Closest planet to the Sun and has the fastest orbit of the nine known planets. Mercury is quick, witty, and communicative, is a fast learner and likes to teach what he knows to others. Because Mercury represents communication, intellect and reason it can become critical,fussy, or overly concerned with detail. The negative aspect of Mercury is that it can gossip, lie, and slander if not well aspected in the natal horoscope. In astrology, Mercury rules Gemini and Virgo, and the third and sixth houses of the horoscope. In Tarot, Mercury rules The Magician in the Major Arcana
Venus is known as the Morning or Evening Star because it is the last star to fade away when the sun brings the light of day and the first to be seen at dawn. Venus is charming, graceful, and diplomatic. Venus is very attractive and represents fertile womanhood, which indicate that men often cannot resist falling in love with her. She likes good food, drink, and sex, and may therefore have a tendency to overindulge. In astrology, Venus rules Taurus and Libra, and the second and seventh houses. In Tarot. Venus rules The Empress in the Major Arcana.
Mars is the red planet and its color signifies the energy it possesses. Mars can be aggressive; if its energy isn’t controlled, accidents or mishaps may occur. It has a very adventurous spirit, which will prompt others to forge ahead when more timid souls would prefer to wait until better times appear. In ancient times Mars was considered to he a planet of fertility because much energy was needed to bring about the birth of a new plant, animal, or concept. In astrology, Mars rules Aries and the first house, and co-rules Scorpio and the eighth house in Tarot, Mars rules The Tower in the Major Arcana.
Jupiter is the largest known planet in our solar system and represents expansion and growth. It brings luck, money, and abundance to whatever it comes in contact with. Jupiter is wise, understanding, and serves as the zodiacal mentor. In astrology Jupiter rules Sagittarius and the ninth house, and co-rules Pisces and the twelfth house. In the Tarot, Jupiter rules the Wheel of Fortune in the Major Arcana.
Saturn is such a majestic sight with its encircling rings, and this gas giant is oh-so-concerned about its reputation. Saturn is the taskmaster as it sets limitations and gives arduous lessons to be learned before the next step in the evolutionary process can be approached. Saturn is concerned with responsibility, duty. time, and age. Saturn can be a fearful sight to those who have not learned their lessons and taken obligations seriously. In astrology, Saturn rules Capricorn and the tenth house, and co-rules Aquarius and the eleventh house. In Tarot, Saturn rules The World in the Major Arcana.
Uranus is such an oddball planet with its rings orbiting vertically rather than horizontally. This uniqueness pervades the planet that was rediscovered by an amateur astronomer instead of the traditional professionals of the day. With Uranus, only the unexpected can be expected. Uranus is the planet of change, genius, unconventional behavior, and revolution. In astrology, Uranus co-rules Aquarius and the eleventh house. In Tarot, Uranus rules The Fool in the Major Arcana, and 4, 5, and 6 of Swords in the Minor Arcana.
Neptune is a watery, fluid planet whose gaseous fog and mist make it difficult for one to clearly see its surface. Neptune’s fluid state makes it emotional, sensitive, intuitive, and psychic. Neptune can spend so much time daydreaming that it may not be in touch with reality, and is so vague that it can be quite deceptive. Ir seeks spirituality in the form of sacrifices, but is definitely not a pushover. This powerful planet wields a forceful energy that it can, and will, use to get its way in life. In astrology, Neptune co-rules Pisces and the twelfth house. In the Tarot, Neptune rules The Hanged Man in the Major Arcana, and 7, 8, and 9 of Cups in the Minor Arcana.
Pluto is erratic and powerful. It is not a single, but actually a double planet with its relatively large moon orbiting in the same fashion as a double star. Pluto’s orbit is not like the other planets because it is highly elliptical and it is at times the farthest-known planet in our solar system, but at others is inside Neptune’s orbital path. While all of the other planets have a fairly even rate of travel throughout the twelve signs of the zodiac, Pluto’s presence in a sign spans anywhere from fourteen years in Scorpio to thirty in Taurus. The more exploration that is done on this sometimes frorien, sometimes thawed planet can make one wonder just exactly which planet is actually the oddball of the solar system. Regardless of Pluto’s eccentricities, it is very powerful indeed and has a tendency to destroy outmoded concepts in order to build anew. When Pluto makes an aspect during a transit, no one is left untouched from its influence. Pluto is lord of the underworld and is the planet of death and rebirth, symbolised by the fact that half of the time this planet is fro/en and dead while the other half it is thawed and alive. In astrology, Pluto corules Scorpio and the eighth house. In the larot, Pluto rules Death in the Major Arcana.
The North Node of the Moon, or Dragon’s Head, says “yes, yes, yes,” and represents good fortune and luck that has been given to the native in this life to help him or her create their destiny. !t is one of the things they are supposed to build upon and refine in this life. The North Node has many characteristics of Jupiter in that it is a free gift to the native. It should be noted, however, that many people must learn to act in accordance with the node because the concepts it brings are completely new and must be developed before they can come to fruition.
The South Node of the Moon, or the Dragon’s Tail, says “no, no, no,” and represents lessons, limitations, and restrictions. This is what the native has already developed in past lives and may have even abused. The South Node has many characteristics of Saturn in that it sometimes places harsh limitations on the areas of its concerns. It should be noted that because we have already developed the qualities and attributes of the South Node, it is all too compelling to slip back into its patterns whenever we are distressed or unsure of ourselves. Because it is our task to learn from mistakes, however, our higher selves will tend to put obstacles in our path that inhibit us from Totally enmeshing ourselves in South Node areas.

meaningless, or curiously unsatisfying, so that it may be difficult to motivate yourself and focus on your work. On the other hand, you
can get very fired up about something out of the ordinary, an ideal or dream, or fantasy that you usually consider too impractical to
actually do anything about. Your imagination is very active. Artistic, creative work which expresses a visionary, whimsical, or
fantastic quality is very fulfilling to you at this time.

leaving, separating from friends and choosing a new way.

want to slow down or accommodate other people’s needs, and resent it hotly if your own desires have to take a back seat to others’
will and wishes.
This is a time for positive, decisive action on your part, forging ahead, taking the initiative – only try not to do so in a completely
insensitive, arrogant manner, as this will almost certainly work against you.
3 May 2011 (3 May 2011 to 4 May 2011) Sun Qucnx Sat
You are serious and disinclined to frivolous or inconsequential activity. It’s a time best spent working alone, structuring and
organizing your life in some way, and focusing on whatever tasks (however distasteful or tedious) that you really need to do. You feel
like withdrawing from people and find social situations unfulfilling or wasteful. Your vitality and your spirits are somewhat dampened.
3 May 2011 (3 May 2011 to 4 May 2011) Ven Sqr Moon
The craving for sweetness and comfort in the form of loving affection or food is strong now. This is a good time to baby yourself
and also to spend time with the people who love and appreciate you the most. Also, you are feeling rather tender and softhearted,
and may do something “maternal” on impulse (such as take home a stray kitten, offer to babysit, buy a gift for your family, etc.).
3 May 2011 (3 May 2011 to 4 May 2011) Sun SSxt Merc
Communications, conversations, sending and receiving messages, and taking care of routine tasks that require mental clarity are
important activities now. It is a good time to present your ideas and point of view to others, as you express your thoughts clearly,
though you are not apt to listen as well. Buying, selling, or negotiating is likely to go well now.
3 May 2011 (3 May 2011 to 4 May 2011) Ven SSqr Nep
Your romantic imagination is strong now. Dreams of an idealized “true love” or feelings of compassion and oneness with others
emerge strongly at this time.
Your perception of people gets rather hazy; you tend to see them through rose-colored glasses. It is best not to make firm
commitments at this time.
If you have creative or artistic inclinations, your work will blossom. You can come up with some really lovely, inspiring images.
4 May 2011 (14 Apr 2011 to 29 May 2011) Ura Conj Ven

mood and you seek fun and excitement.
4 May 2011 (3 May 2011 to 5 May 2011) Ven Conj Mars
Your amorous desires and romantic urges are very strong now. In all of your relationships, whether romantic or not, you feel quite
warm and affectionate. You are less competitive, more interested in pleasing others, and creating harmony. You may also feel
compelled to do something creative or artistic, something to express your craving for beauty.
5 May 2011 (5 May 2011 to 6 May 2011) Sun Trine Moon
At this time you enjoy emotional satisfaction and harmony in your home life. Relationships with women run smoothly. If you have a
solid emotional base in your life, you will receive the benefits of that. If not, this is a good time to begin making connections with
people and also to discover what gives real emotional nourishment and fulfillment.

confidence at this time, and you receive a welcome response from others.
7 May 2011 (17 Apr 2011 to 4 June 2011) Ura SSxt Sun
Freedom, independence, and individuality are the key issues for this time period. You find it extremely difficult to continue in a
daily activity that is tedious, boring, or simply unexciting.
31 May 2011 (16 Jan 2011 to 11 July 2011) Plu Qucnx MC
There are major changes and developments in your career now. You are driven by a compulsive need to be successful in the
things that you really enjoy and feel drawn to, even if these areas are not in high demand or provide marketable products or services.

mediocre progress. Your imagination gets fired up and you dream of grandiose accomplishments.
