New Moon Tarot Reading – October 16, 2020


  1. Winter on 17 October 2020 at 6:07 pm

    that was wonderful and so incredibly timely with what I’ve been trying to navigate at home this month. My intuition is louder than ever and somehow manages to make its way through even when I am most lost in upset. Thank you Sarah 💛 and happy new moon!!

      As ever, Winter, you are most welcome! I’m glad to hear you’re so in touch with your intuition 🙂 Happy New Moon to you too!

    with your ‘elections’ example… this is how i saw the energy and call of the 2 of disks… tell me if i am getting what you were seeing in the message that the card carried:

    today, in elections we see the choice to be made… as either-or party/candidate. that’s a very limiting structure.
    if instead we had a structure where we had to chose one party as a ruling party, and the other as the opposition party – one, that executes, and is a doer… the other party (opposition) as a feedback – reflecting, analysing, reviewing, looking at the unintended consequences, learning and finding better ways… then, we have a structure where the choice becomes very different. it is neither ‘either-or’, NOR simply a ‘and this’. it is like feminine and masculine needing to come together… to bring movement, to create.

    is this second choice the kind of choice 2 of disks is pointing towards?

    • Integrated Tarot on 18 October 2020 at 9:07 pm

      I think that’s an entirely feasible interpretation, Biren – and I love your analogy of the feminine and masculine, which I very much see in the US elections.

    Another aspect i am seeing the foundation of 2 of disks to Q of wands is to bring change, not choice, to the 2 aspects of QofW – fire and water.
    They can’t be brought together, you can’t choose ‘either-or’, you can’t ‘balance’ between them.
    So… what does the foundation help you to ‘know’ about fire and water being an aspect of you as ‘one’ whole?

    • biren shah on 22 October 2020 at 2:56 pm

      More specificity to what I was saying, through examples… not very strong ones, but might just do the trick.

      The water aspect embodying heat would be hot water, or steam. The same water, when cannot include fire in the right way, becomes like acid – the fire aspect is so supressed, you can’t feel it. But the moment you touch it you are not scalded, you burn and corrode.

      The fire when includes water in right way, we have something like molten, moving lava.

      When water and fire both are supressed, we have something like gun powder.

        From an elemental perspective, yes, your comments make sense.

        From a ‘knowing’ perspective, the knowing takes place before thought. So while there’s an explanation that involves the alchemy of elements, for me the true alchemy takes place in the spaces; in some way, it defies easy explanation.

        • biren shah on 22 October 2020 at 5:53 pm

          I vet what you are saying. Agree too.
          The metaphors i share came from what i am experiencing about these archetypal reading in my specific life situation
          It came from within, as if to explain what i was experiencing but was hazy and confused.
