Healing Soundscapes for Emotional Alchemy: Sudan Archives, new EP, Sink.
The Full Moon in Sagittarius arrives at 9:19:33 Central Time on Tuesday, May 29th, 2018.
Days leading up to Full Moons are generally a time of revelation as we near a time of releasing and letting go of things that the moon has revealed doesn't serve us, to make room for things we will grow, manifest, do differently, and embark on with our new knowledge; and to ultimately make room for things most in line with our best interests and desires. The Moon, in general, and as represented in the Tarot Major Arcana, highlights the shadow side of things for release, while it also represents the constant and natural phases of change in life for all matter.
Relatedly, the Full Moon in May, referred to as The Flower Moon , ushers in a particular planetary energy of welcoming change, of blooming, tending to one's growth and creative passions, and of checking in on your progress with goals in respect to approaching the season of summer/the mid-point of the year. And as the full moon that ushers in summer weather, it instructs us to follow and turn up the heat. The Full Moon in the sign of Sagittarius only compounds this energy, as Sagittarians are fire signs ruled by Jupiter. Thus, Sagittarians are known to be confident, successful, but also risk-takers who merge fun, travel, creativity into successful careers and/or lives. Drawing the suits of pentacles and wands in respect to this Flower Moon in Sagittarius forecast is in alignment with these themes, as pentacles point to the nature of our material security, stability, and abundance; earth; and integrated masculine-feminine groundedness in the world--;i.e. business, career, money, legacy and the time and discipline it takes to build it--, while wands underscores our creativity, our fiery-passionate nature, and how we will use it.
9 of Pentacles + 10 of Pentacles + 4 of Wands + Page of Wands: As pentacles are associated with earth, fall/winter, pulling the 9 and 10 of pentacles, in succession, in respect to this May Flower Moon forecast connotes coming to the end of a phase of work related to our legacies and goals + being in a moment of reaping the rewards of our hard work this first half of the year, which will continue in momentum. So long as we mind our shadows 👁. Since the full moon is a time of shedding, we are perhaps even faced with letting go of careers, positions, relationships, and habits standing in the way of us reaching our full potential or doing work in line with our true purpose in order to reap and really soak in the fullness of these current rewards and/or invest more in self. In this card, we see a figure in a lush garden surrounded by abundance--emphasized in the symbology of yellow--, who looks over to 10 of pentacles--our next destination, aka the card of prosperity, legacy, and community support.
4 of Wands aspects this beautifully, also suggesting that summer will be a time to celebrate accomplishments related to work, matters of home, and sacred relationships while also a time to tap into and channel our excited creative energy in a new way, in a new adventure-- seen by Page of Wands. 4 of Wands + Page of Wands even suggests that events, activities, and celebrations you say yes to will inspire an idea or yield a creative opportunity for you. But beware of impulsivity--Page of Wands indicates and encourages embodying this daring, free-spirited, passionate energy brought on by Full Moon in Sagittarius to step into change; however, protect your currency. It all ties back to a legacy.
What are you building? on the brink of seeing come to fruition? Alternatively, what are you grieving and releasing in acceptance of your elevation or change? Do you have any subconscious fears around the new adventures and travel on the horizon for you? While metaphorical death and contemplation are normal in transformation, allow yourself to accept, soak up, and sink in this energy. It's beautiful, earned, and is all for your highest good- promise! Spring cleaning for summer riches. Be a spitfire, brave one.
Number 1244 + Healing Soundscapes for Emotional Alchemy: Sudan Archives, new EP, Sink.
On another note, the channeled number 1244, astrological energy, and the soundscapes from eclectic, experimental young music artist, Sudan Archives, encourage us to Sink in this energy by dealing with the shadow side of all of this--Sagittarius shadow qualities; any residual judgements about your journey, your growth this year, or your direction; and habits that influence self-sabotage and doubt. For instance, what vices and addictions do you gravitate to when feeling out of alignment or lacking confidence? Also, as the moon is in the sign of Scorpio for the next 2 days before the Full Moon in Sagittarius, we may slightly be feeling the murky dark waters of emotion that these placements and transits bring, reminiscent of similar energy at the end of 2017 during the Sag New Moon + Jupiter in Scorpio + Saturn in Capricorn transits, even though our growth and experience these past 6 months makes these feelings less daunting; in fact we're able to alchemize them with better ease. Still, we can have moments of doubt about our direction while in transition, or about relationships since relationships are key to business, creative collaborations, the home life and community support, and overall happiness. The themes are trust and faith. My mix, Dark Waters, was a soundscape created for this reminiscent energy, to aid emotional alchemy. Released just 2 days ago on May 25th, Sudan Archives' new EP, Sink, delivers a soulful, assertive, magical, realist, sunny, and grounding project that meditates on what it means to address and navigate changing relationships, nostalgia, and confident independence, despite odds, errors, and not knowing where your adventure or risks will take you.
Sudan Archives is a 23 year-old recording artist from Ohio, based in LA, who "sings, writes, and produces music inspired by Sudanese fiddlers, R&B, West African rhythms, and experimental electronic music- hence its delivery of soulful, assertive, magical, realist, sunny, and grounding energy + vibrations + words about essentially being a Page of Wands (a burgeoning creative innovator). Self-taught on the violin, Sudan builds recordings around rhythms and melodies pulled from the strings of her violin and her raw vocals" (Spotify, Sudan Archives). Jay Balfour notes, "her new EP, Sink, continues the lo-fi electronic folk awakening she explored on her debut" where she's grafted her violin style onto a batch of glitchy, spacey, soulful electronic tracks, and sang on all of them.
Her single track, "Non't for Sale," is such a feel good summer record giving you just enough twerkable bass while her strings, as expressed, "propagate through space time" in a way that, makes you sway, and that if you close your eyes, makes you feel like you're at the beach, in the water, and also gearing up for space travel--some brave innovative mission. The lyrics reiterate the Full Moon themes and tarot messages from spirit to spread your wings and step into your adventure and your legacy, and are a message to you from Spirit:
"I need to be free
Time to spread my wings.."
Never feeling lonely only gliding
Flying, always being constantly reminded
Time is running out don't waste your luck
Sucker, this my life
Don't mix that up
This my light, don't block the sun
This is my seat, can't you tell
This my time, don't waste it up
This is my land, not for sale."
And in respect to doubt, naysayers, haters, she sings on the track, "Beautiful Mistake:
They don't know, they they don't know
They just fuckin' old people
Tryin' to steal all your gold
They ain't fuckin' with my baby soul
You too rooted in the ground for ya
Tell 'em water make my shorty grow
Tell 'em water make my shorty grow
Okay okay, watch your seeds grow....
Okay okay okay, he got a plan, that's great
Okay okay okay, a beautiful mistake
Herein lies the relationship between our pentacles and wands cards for the Full Moon-- seeing your seeds grow, having a foundation + faith to further harness the bravery, passion, talents and confidence of the wands for new beginnings.
Number 1244 is a direct message about trust and faith in new beginnings from the angels and Spirit guides to you. Related to some Sagittarius shadow qualities, it encourages us to see ourselves in a higher light and do our best to avoid self-defeat and flirting with emotions of doubt. Representing a blend of the numbers' energies, psychic and lightworker Joanna Walmsley writes: "Angel Number 1244 asks that you acknowledge the determination, discipline and hard work you have put into your endeavours in the past, and know that they will bring long-term benefits and rewards to your life. You have shown great tenacity and initiative, so take heart that your efforts have been well worth your while. You are encouraged to keep up the great work you have been doing." The meaning of number 1244 also means starting anew even if it means ending something, and is hard, because ultimately it can take you to a new and more exciting direction where we can use our creativity and mind.
Give yourself permission to be all that you can be, to make it fun, and see the practical work of building foundations and preparation as fuel for your confidence and vice-versa. Stability and security make you more courageous in your decision--calculated risks is key, which is what our Tarot spread suggests as well.
These numbers also tell us not to be discouraged with the errors we'll make while embodying the Page of Wands and doing new things! Overcoming them will gift you lessons! With Saturn in Capricorn, we have to know it's a long race. Don’t think about the many reasons you can fail but focus on the many ways you can celebrate your success-- and our cards suggest much to celebrate now and in the near future. Tap into your gifts, talents, and sexuality for the next phase.
