This 2020 Photo Series by Ruby, is an idea that came to mind, as a solution to the show that is this year. A look at everyday moments, hoping to catch that moment of colour. To share it. To speak to each of us. To call up a vibration of kindness. A moment of saturation to rain through your vision. To heal. Despite what our ego would have us believe, we all have things that can heal. These photos titled Seeking Colour, is an effort in helping us to restore.
Colour raises our souls and is a warm welcome home, like the flowers, both literally and figuratively. Photographed on a rainy Sunday afternoon. It’s part of my balance to a lot of other very important images right now. Nigeria, New York, Melbourne and Beirut, to name a few.
In the last couple of weeks, I started to ‘Seek Colour’ as a reminder that the world has a myriad of things that are possible. For me the most beautiful of these is nature, wild. I was able to watch the birds in my neighbourhood, flash with bright primary splashes in the morning and by the afternoon, I wanted to soak my eyes with colour to recover, to remember, to care.
Full moon known as the Flower Moon, is on May 7, 2020. Its a super moon, meaning the perigee & full moon combine. Perigee is the point closest to earth in the moons orbit. Signalling in the northern hemisphere the explosion of blooms in spring, while in the southern hemisphere it relates to ignition of preparing for hibernation & introspection into winter. This years full moon is in the house of Scorpio.
Bringing introspection into focus can bring a heightened sense of all feelings. Bring to the table options for solutions & accountability. With calm as a purpose, discuss boundaries with context, stay fluid in your perceptions, agree to action based in wisdom. The work will be worth it as you are able to set up parameters in intimacy, communication & creativity. If you are in a faith ritual like Ramadan, sunrise to sunset fasting, awareness will have a very particular focus. Our Flower Moon also known as Frog Moon for the Cree & Ojibwa or Anishinaabe in North America has a complete context around the environment. Staying grounded & spending time in nature or the garden will support positive navigation of topics this month.
In our 2020 year of the metal rat, in the house of Scorpio for our full moon, our honesty is called out along with wit & random actions. Pay attention is our credo. Playing out over an almost two week period, put down ego, petulance, cruel behaviours. Stem your panic & listen. Quietening negative inner dialogue, will create space for you to be still within, giving you time to repair & re engage. Overall this month remember the years mantra, dignity for ourselves & others throughout.
The Hierophant comes with the core meaning – Living faith in everyday life. Your every word, thought and action expresses the truth of your soul.
Our cards title comes from the word ‘Hierophany‘ meaning, the manifestation of the sacred. Teaching us to live in accordance with our sacred beliefs, also known as the Pontiff, meaning ‘bridge’. The Hierophant is the bridge between theory and practice, creating a connection between spiritual belief and daily life. Including tradition, roots and wisdom gained through the ages. As with all teachings, it is up to us to take them into our hearts and minds for inclusion into our daily life. The question is… How is what you believe matching what you think, say and do?
The warning here is awareness of surrounding events, there can be a misuse of power, deception, or spiritual manipulation present.
