Tomorrow is 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 about drawing in stability, and brought to you by Sharron Basanti of Seeds of Shakti.
1. What medicine does the Capricorn New Moon offer?
The Hermit – The ability to look within and truly ascertain what’s working for you and what isn’t. Other readings I’ve done lately have been saying much the same thing. It’s time to reevaluate methods and modalities, toss the ones that aren’t working and go with the ones that are going to further your goals not just in projects or material ways but also in your spiritual path and emotional growth. In order to make that move, you have to take the first step and open your eyes. Now is the time to start paying attention and really looking into these things and examining what’s working and what isn’t.
2. What aspect of my life do I need to restructure and shift?
Knight of Swords – Less impulsivity. Slow down. Everything doesn’t need to be done right now and you need to stop barraging yourself with recriminations for not going at top speed all the time. It is only your own expectation of speed that is causing that constant shove to go faster and do more.
3. How can I hold space to align with my TRUE purpose?
Page of Swords – Keep your mind open and don’t allow negative thinking to stab you in the back. You know it’s coming. You know that those negative thoughts are sneaking up and trying to whisper in the background. Be aware of this and do what you can to keep their volume as low as possible so that your mind is open and receptive to new methods and ideas. After you have identified what isn’t working, after all, it will be time to discover what to try instead.
4. How can I create the security that I need in order to thrive?
Ace of Cups atop Judgement – Remember that you are just starting on this particular journey and stop judging yourself so harshly for the small mistakes that you make a long the way. You’re learning and growing, mistakes will happen. Backsliding will also happen. That’s okay.
5. What resources am I overlooking that I need to bring into my awareness to help sow new seedlings for the Capricorn New Moon?
Knight of Cups – Instead of looking at what you should be doing, try looking through the lens of what you want to do and what will make you feel happy. If there’s stuff that you want to happen or to change that will make you happy, you need to take these things into consideration rather than setting them aside as frivolous or immaterial. Give them weight and allow them a seat at the table.
6. Message from the Ancestors and Guides.
The Magician – You can do it! Your ultimate and eternal cheerleaders are on deck and rooting for you.
