Happy New Year Folks!
We enter 2015 with a hard-hitting full moon demanding we complete on old cycles devoid of value. This lunation, which takes place Sunday in some countries, Monday in others, is opposition Pluto, square the North and South nodal points, square Uranus and it rests directly on Sirius, a fixed star thought to be the home of ancient Egyptian gods like Isis and her brother-husband Osiris.
No matter whether the astrology speaks to you or not, know this full moon is more powerful than others due to the way it’s entangled with celestial forces in the sky.
With this in mind, let’s pose this question to the Motherpeace Tarot:
What does the universe want human beings to complete at this lunation cycle?
Answer: High Priestess to the right
High Priestess is a Major Arcana soul lesson card ruled by the Moon. A moon answer to a moon cycle question generates dynamism imperceptible by the five predominant senses… This is some sixth sense stuff, a pineal gland/third eye issue begging for completion.
The Moon is anima maximus, meaning, it is a celestial entity representative of the highest form of femininity. In tropical charts, this lunation cycle lands in Cancer, the only zodiac sign ruled by the moon. Cancer is heavily psychic cardinal leadership exerted through maternity. What is most fascinating about the January 4/5 full moon is the presence of Sirius literally pressing on it. Sirius, the Dog Star, is of ancient importance. B.C. Egyptians based their calendar on whenever Sirius rose in the sky, which happened during Cancerian summer months, and when this sidereal event took place, the Nile flooded, creating soil harvesting fertility.
Isis is all up in Sirius, it’s her home and birthplace. She’s one of the raddest mother goddesses ever and could definitely be the figure represented in the High Priestess card before us.
Isis put her husband Osiris back together after their jealous brother Set chopped him up and scattered pieces of the body around Egypt. The story is, Isis and Osiris were super beloved throughout the land for their prosperous, benevolent rulership. Wannabe-Usurper Set coveted their status and loathed them both with violent desperation. So, he decided to straight up murder Osiris one day. Absolutely no one told Isis about the homicide, she felt it deep in gut. Then she went out questing on her hunch and found him. Children and her sister-in-law, who left Set and joined Isis’ team post-killing, helped the goddess discover Osiris’ body. She found most of the pieces, but one was missing, I think it was his penis but mythologically, it’s apparent this detail is in debate. But even though Osiris’ member was out of commission and probably ingested by Nile fish, Isis made him whole anyway. She resurrected him and later gave birth to their Golden Child, Horus.
HEY, be clear Isis restored Osiris’ life through magical means solely. She found him in a marsh and performed rituals to get him kicking again.
Moral of this story applies to your life, according to High Priestess to the right. What hunch is SO STRONG within that you know needs to be honored RIGHT NOW?
Well, this ineffable yet completely accurate and irrational soul utterance is exactly what the universe would like you to pursue at this full moon.
If you’re into divination in any capacity, definitely get yourself to a body of water (river, lake, ocean, stream) and feed the fish via votives, with maternal goddess energy in mind.
If chanting at a lake bed isn’t your thing, take a salt bath.
Then, get the ball moving on restoring the true essence of your soul by pursuing that gut instinct.
Also, forgiveness comes into play here. If Isis stepped into victimization mode pissed at Set and focused all her energies on retaliation, Osiris would never have been found. She created a context of hope to move on and do her duty. Same thing goes for us Earthlings: forgive, move on and DO.
The full moon energy is in play for two weeks, happy questing y’all.

Much Full Moon Completion love,
P.S. Intuition Rad Moment: This reading was hella trippy, as by hunch I chose to use Motherpeace deck today. After blessing deck with moqui balls and shuffling major, I pull mother goddess card High Priestess then Isis randomly rings true in gut-mind to speak about.
