A small yet glorious announcement: I start my astrology class today! Wooohoo! This is a 12 week course with Fern Mercier and I am totally looking forward to it, I have my books, pens and notebook sorted (one absolutely Must have the right stationery for occult studies). I did a 3 card spread using the Vanessa Tarot on doing this course, here is what came up:
The Ace of Cups tells me this will be emotionally fulfilling, a great start towards studying something that I not only find deeply satisfying, but I will be joined by close friends and it will be enriching and nourishing those bonds. I checked the LWB that came with the deck for the Moon card, and it says “a modern lady is ready to consume ancient mysteries“. Oh boy am I ever!! I won’t be quite turning up with a fork in my hand, but I’ll definitely consume all the knowledge that Fern will graciously offer 🙂 And The Fool? It’s another card for starting a journey, for new beginnings – note the road going off into the distant Sun – full of promise and adventure.
Just to kick things off, I checked out the chart for my blog last week – I nearly fainted when I saw that Mercury, planet of communication, is in its detriment in Sagittarius! And it’s retrograde!! And it’s the only planet in a fire sign in the whole chart!!! Aaaargh! Oh well, I’m getting over it, but still…
Regardless, I’m too excited now to contemplate the detriment of Mercury! I’m off to an astrology class and some serious pondering of the celestial heavens 🙂
