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 about moving beyond the shadows, and brought to you by Sharron Basanti of Seeds of Shakti.
1. What medicine does the Leo Full Moon offer?
Eight of Cups – The Leo full moon offers you the strength and opportunity to leave behind you the things that are no longer working for you. You’ve been drug down and disappointed, struggling with your emotions, but this full moon is offering you the energy needed to begin the climb back out of that dark place and towards the light.
2. How can I harness the potent medicine of Leo for activating what my heart is yearning to manifest?
Ten of Wands – Don’t overwhelm yourself. It’s okay to take things a little at a time instead of trying to pile it all on and deal with it all at once. Responsibilities can sometimes feel like they are just too much of a burden, but they can be manageable if broken down into smaller bite sized pieces. Yes, this means it will take more time, but it will help keep you from feeling the overwhelm that can drag you down and hold you back from that climb into the light.
3. How can I embrace Leo’s shadow medicine?
Six of Wands – Listen to those that cheer you on. It’s okay to accept praise. It’s okay to feel good when people say that you’ve done well or say that they admire you. It won’t make you a lesser person to allow these good feelings when you are given compliments or praise.
4. What shifts will emerge after the Full Moon?
Ten of Coins – A return to a sense of security and good fortune is on the horizon as the moon’s energy begins to wane. The healthier you begin to feel, the more that sense of well-being in your situation will improve. It is all about your perception… and your gratitude, which is much easier to get in touch with as you begin to feel better.
5. Message from the Ancestors.
Seven of Wands – Stand up for what you believe in and follow that moral compass so intrinsically embedded in how you think and feel. As the energy of the full moon peaks and its waning begins to lead the way out of the darkness you’ve slid into, make sure that you keep your focus centered on those things that are worth fighting for and what you need to do to protect them and allow them to flourish.
