Tomorrow is 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. Where do I need to relax?
Eight of Cups – This is about choice and about my worries about having to set aside my emotional development and progress in order to dive into the holiday rush. Gideon and I have spoken about this at length, and I understand that I don’t have to abandon that progress. Instead, I need to find a way to ground it so that I can carry it with me instead of closing it away.
2. Where should I focus my fiery energy?
Eight of Coins – Get to work! I’m running out of time to get my holiday preparations done and I’ve really slacked off on it this fall more than I should have. I need to focus my fiery creative streak into the task of getting my work done and building up what needs prepared to make the holiday rush run smoothly.
3. Where do I need to take immediate action?
Justice – This hearkens back to the last question and has to do with cause and effect. This card stresses the urgency of righting this imbalance quickly before the pendulum swings back in my direction and I am unprepared for it. Right now the scales are not balanced, and there will be consequences to not getting the preparations done that need done. The longer I put it off, the more that imbalance will grow and the larger the consequences will be.
4. Where do I need to retreat?
Three of Swords – Stop worrying so much. Stop allowing your mind to influence and freak out your emotions. Take a step back and don’t allow yourself to be so reactionary to the inner dialogue going on. You know that bastard in your head is a jerk, so just stop listening and move on.
5. Where do I need to charge ahead with?
The Magician – Again we are back to what needs to be done and doing it. I have all the tools and skills at my disposal and am more than capable of doing what needs done. Stop procrastinating and put those formidable skills and wealth of tools and knowledge to work.
