Today 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. What does my body require right now?
Knight of Swords atop Ace of Swords – Slow down and think things through. I need to make better choices concerning my body and what it needs. That includes getting more time outside in the woods, but also making sure I’m eating better. Less junk and more healthy goodness, instead of reaching for whatever is in reach and easy.
2a. Where in my life do I need to be gentler?
Two of Pentacles – I need to stop putting so much pressure on myself to juggle everything. I did such a good job through the spring and summer at balancing things better, but with the approach of the holiday rush and the stress that is slowly building up… I’ve sort of dropped the ball.
2b. Where in my life do I need to be more joyful?
Page of Pentacles – It’s okay to enjoy yourself and have some fun while you work at adapting to the upswing in sales and added responsibility. Don’t get so focused on sales that you forget to have some fun with the creative side of things, or forget about how your creations are meant to bring joy to others.
3. Where do I need to take immediate action?
Ace of Pentacles – Get your shit together. Opportunities are on the rise and you need to make sure you’re ready to catch hold and run with it when they drop in your lap. You have a choice to make. You can either grab hold of the ball and run with it, ensuring a good financial boon for the holiday season. Or you can drop the ball and pay the consequences when the money doesn’t roll in as you are used to it doing during this time of year.
4. What is ripe for harvesting?
The Sun atop Knight of Pentacles Rx – Instill fun into your work now. Right now. This isn’t something you have to take at a slow pace like so many other things along your path. This is something you can do right this moment. Added bonus? It’ll help in stirring up your motivation and enthusiasm.
5. What long term project to I need to start?
Ten of Pentacles atop Seven of Pentacles – All that wonderful security and stability that I crave so much takes time to accomplish. The reinforcement of just how ‘long term’ this goal is has been reinforced by the Seven of Pentacles indicating that the end of the journey is not in the foreseeable future but something I will have to put years and years of time and effort into yet. That doesn’t mean that you procrastinate and do it later, but rather that much like an hourglass, you have to do it one grain of sand at a time.
