Old and wizened
he sits and waits
for those that find him
to greet with respect
and for those that
worship at his feet
the wealth of
in the flutter of wings
and sweet swell
of the forest
upon the senses
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 about tipping the scales, and brought to you by Sharron Basanti of Seeds of Shakti.
1. What imbalances is the Full Libra Moon magnifying?
Eight of Swords – My fears are being amplified. I need to expect a bit more anxiety surrounding the next few days and remember that anxiety is not premonition… it’s simply anxiety. Don’t allow it to compound upon itself by thinking it means anything. Your intuition does not speak to you through anxiety and it’s not going to start doing so any time soon.
2. How can the scales be brought back to balance?
The World atop King of Swords – Ground yourself with a foundation of logic and knowledge. A lot of things are being done differently these days and it’s okay to feel anxious as long as you recognize it’s an irrational response and keep your eyes on making sure you stay up to date with the changes and transitions taking place.
3. What truths is the Libra Full Moon revealing that I need to acknowledge?
The Fool – Lighten up. Make sure you’re making time for fun and play. Not everything can be serious all the time and it’s important to allow yourself some carefree time where you release the weight of responsibilities and just allow the world around you to enthrall and delight you. It doesn’t have to be long or intense, but this is something you need to make sure you’re including in your life in order to find a better life balance.
4. How can I create sacred space for harmony to thrive and flourish?
King of Cups – Allow yourself to be emotionally supported by others. Allow an emotional connection within your spirituality to flourish. Just because you don’t always know the names of the emotions you feel or how exactly to express them doesn’t mean they’re any less valid than if you did. If you need help expressing these emotions, you know you can find it in Gideon, who is always there to help you sort it out.
5. Message from the Ancestors and Guides.
The Emperor atop Eight of Cups – Step up and claim a healthier path. You’re going to end up frustrated and stuck in another unhealthy pattern if you don’t seize control and direct things to go the way you want them to. Now is the time to seize that control and make sure things go in the direction you want them to rather than in the same old frustrating direction that they have always gone in in the past when at this point in your recovery from an MDE.
