Yesterday was the full 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. What possibilities are being offered to me right now?
Death Rx – A time of peace is being offered to me. Change is so often a constant in life, and organic change is a theme that runs throughout a life like the circulation system of a body. But there are moments of pause… of peace. Of quiet. These moments are not stagnancy, they are an opportunity to take a deep breath and rest before life moves on into the next change.
2. What area of my life is craving freedom and experimentation? (check
the suit for big clues)
Page of Pentacles – Get your ass outside and have more fun with it. Yes, hiking in the woods is peaceful and amazing, but allow it to do more than just be refreshing. Allow these experiences to brighten your day and lighten your heart. Find your excitement, and stoke that fire again so that your enthusiasm spills over into a joyous sense of discovery.
3. Where can I be more open minded?
The Fool – Being jaded is boring. Don’t allow yourself to become boring.
4. What old habits/beliefs need to be released under this Full Moon?
Strength – Heroism is not always a sign of strength. Sometimes? It’s a sign of weakness and stupidity. Don’t mistake risk-taking behavior for strength… strength comes from within in relation to doing what needs done and how you grow from those experiences. It has nothing to do with putting yourself in unnecessary danger.
5. Where do I need to go with the flow?
Four of Wands – Let your freak flag fly. It’s okay to be silly now and then. The entire theme of this reading (with the exception of the allowance of rest) supports this need to let down your hair, kick off your shoes, and just let yourself have a little more fun with life. It’s okay. The world isn’t going to fall apart if you have a little fun and smile freely a bit more often.
