On Wednesday 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 impulses need taming?
Six of Flame – Be unique. Fitting in isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. You know this already but sometimes you forget or the awareness gets pushed aside a bit. It’s okay for that to happen as long as you remain true to your values and ethics, but it’s better to return back to the confidence of self that allows you to not feel the desire to fit in in the first place.
2. Where can I best direct my energy?
The Emperor – Own your environment, and own yourself. Focus on becoming better seated in your element and projecting that true strength that lives within you and that others depend on. This doesn’t mean you are supporting them, but when you simply stand beside them, it makes them stronger as a result.
3. How can I best redirect my aggression?
Five of Oak – Don’t allow your feelings of scarcity to trigger you into being miserly. Turn it around into generosity instead. Just because you feel like things are not going well doesn’t mean that’s the truth. Work at letting go of the inward directed aggression that feelings of scarcity create. Instead, look at all you have and all you offer to others, and you can see just how well things are actually going.
4. How can I add a little spice to my life?
Page of Oak – Lean in. Finding the fun and finding your way forward sometimes requires a bit more dedication than others. Push forward to seek more joy and more positivity. Actively commit to this path and put genuine effort into the process. Don’t put it off for later as your happiness is important.
5a. What personal beliefs need re-examining?
King of Zephyrs – You don’t have to be harsh to be “large and in charge”. Not everything has to be a battle plan with a sharp tongue and sharper mind behind the wheel 100% of the time. Everyone needs down time.
5b. What spiritual beliefs need re-examining?
The Star – Leaving things up to chance now and then is not irresponsible and will work out just fine. Your guides are there and will help in times of need, so too will your own intuition. The world… the universe… it will provide. So relax a bit and enjoy a bit more of the world around you instead of believing that you need to have your thumb on the pulse of everything all the time.
