Tarot of Vampyres

The Moon
“Accentuate the positive.”

Neptune in Pisces:  Neptune rules Pisces and governs the subconscious, dreams, fantasies, and illusions
Number 18: This may indicate a state of confusion that’s almost impossible to reconcile

Just as the Moon reflects the Sun’s light back to itself, your moods, habits, and emotions reflect back on you. Are these positive or negative reflections of yourself?

Queen of Wands
“I am, therefore I will be.”

Mars in Aries:  As Mars rules Aries, their energies are in sync. Mars is the Warrior fueled by strength, action, and independence.
Number 13:   Transformation at a key point where you have to destroy the old to make way for the new in order to achieve a dream.

An active force of passion and creativity – fierce, confident, sexual, magnetic, and independent. The Black Panther represents the extreme ferocity of the Divine Fire (The Original Passion that created Energy) tamed by the Queen.

Queen of Swords
“Fuck them and fuck that.”

Uranus in Aquarius:  Uranus is at home in Aquarius, and here it represents finding personal freedom through truth
Number 13: (see above)

Your truthfulness, sharp intellect, and keen perception will be required in the next few days.

The Fool
“You are not what others perceive you to be.”

Uranus in Aquarius:  Uranus is at home here and signifies major changes
Number 0:  Potential and/or choice, and represents the beginning of a journey

What do you want to do when you grow up? Who do you want to be?

“Like the Phoenix, rise from the ashes.”

Pluto in Scorpio:  Pluto rules Scorpio and in Roman mythology was known as the Lord of the Underworld; both Scorpio and Pluto share the themes of death, rebirth, and transformation
Number 13:   Major upheaval and transformations

It’s time to overcome your fear of the necessary changes taking place.

The Devil
“Embrace your Shadow.”

Saturn in Capricorn:  Saturn rules Capricorn and here it asks that you look inward
Number 15:   Personal ambitions, dreams, and desires

Follow your impulsive instincts and charge head-on towards your goal – like the goat which represents the astrological sign of Capricorn.

The Lovers
“What are you in love with?”

Mercury in Gemini
Number 6: Connects above and below, intellectual creativity, imagination, perfection, ability to use the imagination and the intellect combined.

Intimate relationships and their trials. It can also indicate a new project or challenge that will inspire you and cause you to fall in love with it.

8 of Cups
“I will survive.”

Saturn in Pisces
Number 8:  This number signifies power, personal achievements and the courage to overcome obstacles and break down barriers to transform your life. (In Tarot, the 8 of Cups shares the No. 8 with the Strength card)

Ace of Wands
“Dance with Fire”

Number 1:  The vibrations and attributes of new beginnings, creation, independence, uniqueness, motivation, striving forward and progress, ambition and will power, positivity and positiveness.

Aces are known as the “Controlling Cards” and they control your path. They point to the new beginning where you are headed and indicate the birth of an idea – in this case, the spark of creativity.

Plant Lust::Ceropegia sandersonii

one of my 7 Heavenly Lusts

Ceropegia sandersonii
Parachute plant

A tender perennial vine native to Mozambique, South Africa, and Swaziland. C. sandersonii produces parachute-like flowers from Spring to Fall. Carnivorous flies are tricked into pollinating them by simulating the scent of an injured honey bee.

As these plants have thick, succulent-like leaves don’t allow the soil to remain wet – consistently moist is what they want. (I let mine dry-out a bit between waterings.)

Average room temps
Full sun to part shade
Average humidity
Well-draining potting soil such as a cactus/succulent mix
Feed regularly during blooming season, but cut the strength of your fertilizer in half (or use succulent/cactus food)
Propagate by stem cuttings

My first flower…

Ceropegia are considered non-toxic to dogs and cats.
