New Moon of January

Osho Zen Tarot II Inner Voice Ma Deva Padma
For today’s new moon I’ve decided to only draw one card as a focal point for this lunation. This because I also want to work with my monthly cards of my Year ahead spread and I don't want to make things too complicated. I’ve also noticed that I don’t pay that much attention to the release cards which I usually draw on the day of new moon. Perhaps it is better to draw such a release card on the full moon and to work it when the moon is starting to wane…
Anyway, for this lunation I’ve drawn: II inner Voice from the Osho Zen tarot. This is the equivalent of the High Priestess from  more traditional tarot decks. It is always a very welcome card to receive but also challenging one: Listening to our inner voice can be very tricky, especially when we have some many voices in our head chattering the entire day to us and even to each other. We all know they hardly ever shut up.
Maybe this knowledge is the pathway to listening to our Inner Voice because she doesn’t speak with words springing from our every busy mind but she speaks with the wordless language of the heart. 
She is both dark and light, crystal clear and veiled, playful and profound. She is Truth without having to explain herself. We only have to sit down and find her wordless whispers between the myriad of voices we hear all day long.

  1. I can usually tell the difference between my ego's voice and my inner voice, because the inner voice generally gives me advice to do something I wouldn't choose on my own! :D

  6. I love the illustrations in the Osho Tarot deck. And of course the High Priestess she very close to me in my heart of hearts. She helps me to tell those others voices in my head to shut the hell up! ;)

  7. This is such a lovely card to draw for a new moon. Blessings on both listening to and hearing the palpable silence where inner and outer meet.
