“I am one who is guided by the quiet of the night, a time of listening and reflection. I am the keeper of memories, one who is far-reaching, yet with roots firmly in the ground. I am Full Mother Moon giving birth to Crescent. I travel in darkness, protected by my hard shell. I am one you can trust will be there when you take your leap of destiny.”

Lately, I’ve been guided into exploring new ways of using my SoulCollage® cards, like dream work and mandala making. Most recently I’ve added a new & exciting element to my SoulCollage® experience: astrology. My friend, Krista Jarrard (Visionary Astrology) helped me get to know myself in a way I hadn’t fully appreciated until her guidance led me to a creative exploration of astrology through SoulCollage®.
Most everyone is familiar with their Sun sign (our outer personality), but did you know that your Moon sign may be even more revealing about you? I’m a Scorpio sun sign girl, and I can certainly relate to many of those Scorpio qualities 😉 But once I learned about my Moon sign (which rules our inner, emotional side), and Krista interpreted it in relation to my birth chart, I experienced such a sense of unexpected understanding about myself, it was quite liberating!
Krista’s gift of astrology gave me personal wisdom and vision, and a creative energy much like I experience doing SoulCollage®. She guided me through my chart of symbols and elements and interpretation that was uniquely “me,” providing moments that offered clarity and a new appreciation for parts of my personality (my private, emotional side), which I didn’t readily embrace before her insight.
And much like SoulCollage®, the astrological symbols and interpretations reveal themselves in images that speak to these parts of my personality. It is a natural response to create cards honoring these parts of my personality: Scorpio Sun, Cancer Moon, Pisces Rising, and more!
It’s likely that an astrological component already resides in your SoulCollage® deck as allies and challengers, shadow and light cards, archetypes, specific energies, elements, or even events. Think zodiac archetypes, eclipses, lunar phases, planets, planetary energies or other symbolism. My Death card reminds me a lot of what I’m learning about Scorpio archetypes. In fact, I’m noticing many similarities between astrology imagery and my cards!
Both astrology and SoulCollage® speak to parts of our personality that invite deeper insight and discovery of all the elements that have shaped you at this moment. Both offer a new appreciation and understanding of yourself in a way you may not have fully recognized.
Have you integrated astrology into your SoulCollage® deck? What has been your experience?
