Yesterday, was the day i’d been waiting for since what feels like forever…
For the first time I ever saw “the very essence and soul” of Tarot portrayed in the mainstream media with such distinguished accuracy and the critical acclaim it deserves.
On the run up to the Feline Full Moon Dior opened the Tarot door in true Leo Fashion.
The creative head of Dior Maria Grazia Chiuri has tried once before with her famous Tarot coat she released down the catwalk in 2017
However, the depth of Tarot cannot be fully conveyed with a few seconds glimpse down the mightiest catwalk - even if it did take 15,000 hours to make.
But now, Chuiri has not missed a trick in the pandemic.
The Catwalk sign may say closed, but the opportunity is here to take a captive audience into a longer deeper dive inside.
Below is my interpretation on the journey of self discovery through the Tarot that Chiuri portrays
Her source of inspiration is clear as she unveils it to the world, in
I’ve been waiting for the day that someone could get across a mainstream masterpiece that pictures what a soul goes through when the Tarot knocks on their door (rather than the other way around).
Dior’s creative head has now declared the world of Tarot well and truly open through opening the doors to her spellbinding collection.
This door is significant.
For the world of Tarot and the world at large, bridging the divide by accurately depicting a world of divine archetypes, waiting to help each and every activate the divine within.
That tall dark handsome stranger? It’s yourself.
“There is one school of thought that says tarot cards are about the future, but the point of view that fascinates me says that they help you to learn about yourself,” - Chiuri
Welcome to the gift of the Full Moon in Leo! It's time to be your deliciously brazenly bold self.
It’s time, to rise and shine and be ALL of who you are, to accept your shadow and embrace the wild and dark as much as the light and love - as Chiuri beautifully portrays.
This Leo Full Moon is roaring for you to love, accept and be yourself...
See the red lines? it means the planets are in a “frictional relationship”. Juxtaposed or diametrically opposed.
It’s usual to find some of this in the mix along with some more harmonious trines or sextiles (blue lines), but where is the harmony in these skies!?
Okay, okay so oppositions and squares might break you or make you cry in your decaff coffee!
BUT! They also make you and gift you the staying power to fly high.
Look at the chart above, it’s a glaring red right angle right?
Now look at the world card below, you see the red ribbons tied around the laurel?
The victorious laurel wreath is held together through friction, the red ribbon is diametrically opposed.
Next, look at the four corners of the card, starting at the bottom left and going clockwise, you’ll see Taurus, Aquarius, Scorpio and Leo.
The four fixed signs, all in frictional relationship to each other but together they make the world go round.
The four fixed seasons, the four spokes of a wheel (which is why you see a sneak peek of the bottom left of The Wheel card)
It’s not staying slouched on the comfy couch that gives you the impetus to get out there in the world is it? So no cowering under your duvet! Even if Mercury Retrograde is gearing up to kick in too!
Because these are the days you’ll see just how far you’ve come.
And how much you have to draw from and upon.
Herald what your mother said, Read the books your father read
Try to solve the puzzles in your own sweet time
Some may have more cash than you Others take a different view
My, oh my, yeah, eh, eh
You Gotta Be bad, You Gotta Be bold, You Gotta Be wiser
You Gotta Be hard, You Gotta Be tough, You Gotta Be stronger
You Gotta Be cool, You Gotta Be calm, you gotta stay together
All I know, all I know Love will save the day - Des ree.
Love will save the day indeed, and that is what the Leo (sign of the heart) is here to teach us.
You can herald what your mother said, read the books your father read, but if there's no feeling in what peeps are hearing then there’s gonna be no healing.
Leo is the dancing flames of fire that gathers friends and lovers together in the darkness, warming their cockles and hanging navigation stars above their heads as they open their hearts and tell stories of old...
Leo Full Moon is a passionate fire sign, it has no time for fluff or beating around the bush.
Leo courageously invites you to dive deep into the real, raw, authentic heart of a matter...
It doesn't interest me what you do for a living.
I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing.
It doesn't interest me, how old you are.
I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love for your dream for the adventure of being alive.
It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon...
I want to know if you have touched the centre of your own sorrow
If you have been opened by life's betrayals
Or have become shrivelled and closed from fear of further pain.
I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own without moving to hide it or fade it or fix it.
I want to know if you can be with joy mine or your own if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes.
Without cautioning us to be careful to be realistic to remember the limitations of being human.
It doesn't interest me if the story you are telling me is true.
I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself.
If you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul.
If you can be faithless and therefore trustworthy.
I want to know if you can see beauty even when it is not pretty every day.
And if you can source your own life from its presence.
I want to know if you can live with failure yours and mine and still stand at the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon,
It doesn't interest me to know where you live or how much money you have.
I want to know if you can get up after the night of grief and despair weary and bruised to the bone and do what needs to be done to feed the children.
It doesn't interest me who you know or how you came to be here.
I want to know if you will stand in the centre of the fire with me and not shrink back.
It doesn't interest me where or what or with whom you have studied.
I want to know what sustains you from the inside when all else falls away.
I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.
The Invitation - Oriah Mountain Dreamer.
Oriah sums up the energy of this Full Moon so well I wondered if she was a Leo, a quick search came up with…..
Nothing! However I am, and it's time for me to step up and in.
Are you up for taking a deep courageous passionate dive inside your heart with me this Leo Full Moon?
In true Leo fashion you’ll know if it’s a yes, without knowing what you are saying yes to!
So if it is....
No, you don't need a Tarot deck or any knowledge, just a desire to open your mind and heart, are you ready?
Then Let's begin!
Wishing you a wonder- full Moon,
