Yesterday was the new moon, and like all new moons and full moons, I did a spread aligned to the moon’s current themes as a part of my recognition of the moon’s cycle and influences upon us. Today’s spread is brought to you by Ethony‘s Tarot By the Moon series.
1. How can I bring more balance to my home?
Queen of Pentacles – Be a more approachable “authority figure” in my home. Authority figure isn’t really the right term, but I’m also not really a fan of the term “provider”. But what it comes down to is being more approachable. Less stiff and stringent. You can hold things together and keep things on track without holding yourself apart.
2. What old family beliefs need to be healed?
Queen of Wands – You have to be “on” all the time. Always moving forward, always heading towards goals that are set and just beyond your reach like a carrot that dangles before the jackass. These goals are passions, but they are always unobtainable other than through hard work and staying on task. Like a queen on a throne you strive to please but will never truly touch.
3. What old family patterns need examining?
Ten of Swords and Five of Cups – Neglect breeding a feeling of defeat. It’s time to consider you just are not going to get the nurturing you need from those you would expect to get it from. It’s okay to outsource that nurturing and guidance into other areas of your life and other trusted resources… you do not have to be bereft.
4. How can I be a more impactful community member?
The Hierophant – You’re on that track. Just keep doing what you love concerning the communities you choose to be a part of. Guide others to finding the path that is right for them, and learn from them in turn on ways to improve yourself. You can’t teach without learning along the way, and in this small way you send ripples out into the world that helps make your community and the world a better place… just one tiny bit at a time.
