Rosh Chodesh, Looking Back

The moon is almost dark. Time to look back on the moon-month, the month of Nissan that is lying behind me. The card that I had pulled on Rosh Chodesh -the festival of the new moon when this month started- was Three of Quills from the Tarot of Jane Austen. I had pulled this card with the question what I could renew during the upcoming month.


The card depicts Jane Bennett from Pride and Prejudice who is heart broken. The card is about feelings but also about the mind. Diane Wilkes writes in her essay about this card how thoughts are important here, because  the card belongs to quills. On many instances my worrying thoughts led me astray this month, to lands where nothing grows, where ruin is all over, making me more sad than necessary. This month gave me the opportunity to confront this problem.
