Tarot Reading: New Moon in Aquarius – January 2020

My friend Mandy and I have been meeting up in person in the valley (San Fernando Valley in SoCal, haha) for over 2 years now just learning and interpreting the Tarot. It’s a personal practice that’s evolved over time and so for 2020, we did something different – we started recording an audio summary via my iPhone. Then I would send the audio to my Gmail, download the file and start editing it in Adobe Premiere – adding text and images of Tarot cards. It’s been fun.

So in this video, you are hearing Mandy doing most of the talking, while I read the questions. We are working with the Many Moons 2020 Lunar Planner which I highly recommend getting if you’re witchy and also the Deviant Moon deck.

Are we witches? Although we’ve had a difficult time admitting it, the short answer is yes.

Before Mandy and I came out of the closet and started calling ourselves ‘witches’ – we worked together many years ago in the home entertainment industry. At the time, I was a production artist while Mandy was a creative director. Long story short, we’ve kept in touch over the years and really got into this metaphysical stuff in 2012. Our paths were separate yet here we are many years later.

A little bit about us:

Pia San Jose is an artist/designer, crystal healer, Reiki & Tarot practitioner. This is my website for my Crystal Healing, Reiki and Tarot practice.

Master Yoda – Ascended Master and Pop Culture Magick Icon

Art by Ralph McQuarrie

If you are a Star Wars nerd but also an energy healer, then you will come to understand that it has many references to metaphysical and spiritual subjects; such as spirit beings and universal life force energy, aka the Force.

And if I had to explain what Reiki is, then I would probably suggest that you see Star Wars.

I’d like to think of Master Yoda as an ascended master as well as a pop culture magick icon. In magic and metaphysics, anything or anyone you think is inspiring, powerful and has personal meaning for you can be considered a deity or a talisman that can protect you. Someone that you can call upon when you’re feeling down and out.

Into my journey as a Reiki practitioner, I immediately felt a connection to Master Yoda as he is patient, wise, powerful and deeply connected to the Force.

A character that was created out of thought and imagination is a thought form, which means it exists.

For example, whenever I’m feeling small and insignificant in this world I like to think of the scene where Master Yoda is saying what he said to Luke on Dagobah when Luke was getting frustrated with his training in The Empire Strikes Back:

Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And well you should not. For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes. Even between the land and the ship.

– Master Yoda

So what can you do with your pop culture magickal guide? Call upon this being whenever you feel you need protection from harmful energies. It’s better to connect with a character that you like, can relate to and think about often than your typical spirit guide or ascended master who you have no connection with at all. Try it out and pay attention to the results!
