Headache on New Moon in Scorpio

Every new moon (and full moon) Natta, the tarot teacher always reminds us to meditate on the corresponding cards related to the moon’s astrology. I never really understand how to meditate with tarot cards, so I usually skip this part of the homework.

Today, I gave it a try.

Pulling out The High Priestess (new moon) and the Death (Scorpio) cards from The Spacious Tarot deck, I sat on my work desk for a while, staring at these two cards. Nothing came to mind, except that I had to take Paracetamol because I have a terrible headache. So I did. Then I slathered my face with mud and made myself a pot of mulled wine tea, before coming back to my desk, looking intently into the images of these cards.

Nothing happened, and the headache is still there. I opened the journal to write, and nothing came into my mind.

I mindless flipped over the old entries and found one which I wrote on New Moon in Scorpio three years ago. I ranted about having a bad day then, and I noted down that I had a headache too.

Is this a thing? To have a lingering headache on New Moon in Scorpio? If yes, how do I unsubscribe?

A Friday The 13th Milestone

Happy Friday the 13th! I always feel like this day carries more woo-woo energy compared to most days, and the witch in me always gets excited about it.

My first memory of Friday the 13th is when my very hipster music teacher told us about the Jerusalem virus which has been attacking computers all over the world every year on Friday the 13th. A fact that is a bit morbid for a 13yo to remember, but I have always been a bit weird 🤷.

My fascination on Friday the 13th was established that day and it has been growing ever since.

This Friday the 13th is a bit more special.

It is the second Friday the 13th in 2020. Marking the end of the self-isolation period which started on the first Friday the 13th of the year, in March. It was the last day I went to work and living life, as usual.

Today, 7 months later, after passing through, in limbo, the uncomfortable adjustment and somewhat painful learning period, I feel like I am being invited to finally turn over a new page—a milestone.

Officially marking being completely hatched, reemerging fully into and totally embracing the new normal.

I celebrated the day with a fun breakfast date with Fafa at The Top Paddock. It’s the first breakfast place I had been to by myself when I moved to Melbourne years ago. We reminisced our first months here (his was a year before mine) and other travel memories.

I still have to do a massive task before logging off of work. But later, I have a coven meeting for (yes, it’s a thing). And after that, I plan to finish The Alchemist and do some night-journaling accompanied by a mug of hot Gluhwein and both The High Priestess and Death tarot cards (New Moon on Scorpio). It feels like the right way to honor the day—both Friday the 13th and the new normal milestone.
