An apple a day…

appleIt is ultimately strange to me how Eve’s fruit, which is a symbol of life, a beautiful red apple, has the biblical connotation of death…death through knowledge, and banishment from paradise upon consumption. The fruit of knowledge is the Goddess’s sacred heart of immortal life and was known as the apples of immortality. The Celts called the western paradise Avalon, or “Apple-land,” a country ruled by Morgan, the queen of the dead. Kings received the magic apples of Avalon and went to live in immortality under the sunset of Morgan’s land, King Arthur among them.

Greeks have a historic tradition about Mother Hera who kept a magic garden in the west where the Tree of Life was guarded by her sacred serpent. The whole story of Eve, Adam, and the serpent in the tree was purposely changed from icons showing the Great Goddess offering life to her worshipper, in the form of an apple, with the tree and the serpent in the background.

Romans gave the apple mother the name of Pomona. She symbolized all fruition. A Roman banquet = ab ova usque mala, from eggs to apples – the beginning or the symbol of creation and ending with the symbol of completion. It was recorded that King Herod finished every meal in the Roman style, with an apple.

What Tarot Card are You? I Am the Moon…

Hope, expectation, Bright promises.

The Moon is a card of magic and mystery – when prominent you know that nothing is as it seems, particularly when it concerns relationships. All logic is thrown out the window.

The Moon is all about visions and illusions, madness, genius and poetry. This is a card that has to do with sleep, and so with both dreams and nightmares. It is a scary card in that it warns that there might be hidden enemies, tricks and falsehoods. But it should also be remembered that this is a card of great creativity, of powerful magic, primal feelings and intuition. You may be going through a time of emotional and mental trial; if you have any past mental problems, you must be vigilant in taking your medication but avoid drugs or alcohol, as abuse of either will cause them irreparable damage. This time however, can also result in great creativity, psychic powers, visions and insight. You can and should trust your intuition.
