Recently I’ve enjoyed the beginning process of exploring the celestial guided side of me through SoulCollage® by creating cards representing my Sun and Moon signs, and my Rising sign. As I continue to learn about their meanings for me (including their light and shadow sides) with the help of my friend Krista Jarrard, I’ve found their interpretation has allowed me to be more accepting of certain parts of myself, and even more understanding of parts I wasn’t even fully aware of, because they lived deeper down and with feelings I didn’t understand in my reactions to things in particular.
These three cards (below) within my deck obviously play a role in representing parts of my personality, but they have also brought a certain dimension to my readings with them—far beyond what I initially expected. Such is the way of the SoulCollage® experience 😉
Upon recently completing my “Pisces Rising” card, I wanted to try a little experiment between the three cards that carry astrological aspects in my Committee suit. I placed them face-up in front of me and invited a dialog between the neters of these cards.
I began first by writing down the IAOW exercise for each card and then I wrote down what emerged from there, after probing with further questions in a “conversation style” between the cards. My questions went something like this:
Moon sign, what would you say to the strong voice of Scorpio Sun, who is revealing something that she believes to be a weakness?
Rising sign, how and where can all this emotion you offer really help?
Sun sign, why do you retreat whenever support abounds? Why do you get frustrated and angry instead of allowing yourself this guidance?
What resulted was a kind and supportive (and emotional) source of support in acknowledging and working through my own struggles and fears–my self-sabotage. I learned from the wisdom shared during a dialog between these neters. One who wants to be desperately heard, yet is reluctant to excavate deeper truths. Another who tries to find balance, yet often works through (perhaps prefers?) navigating unsettled waters as a way to grow. And a third who fights to reveal her true self, to honor her true feelings yet is moved by her emotional environment, which is sometimes misaligned with her own.
Together, the three support each other so poetically and shared their messages for me today: to face fears by encouraging the work that will get you through it; and inviting or being a companion on the road less traveled, as one helps herself by being there for another. Which leads back to the fear—it is not a weakness dear one! You do not have to conquer it alone, and why should you?
Have you ever invited dialogue between your cards or neters? It’s yet another way to work with your cards. Always revealing 🙂 Also a fun and alternative approach to a reading. I would love to hear your thoughts or experience in doing this.
