Along with the Full Moon, which I did a reading for yesterday, tomorrow is also a Lunar Eclipse! In celebration of that upcoming event, I decided to do a reading geared towards the eclipse and the energies surrounding it. This spread is brought to you by Ethony‘s Tarot By the Moon series.
1. What external influences are not serving my highest good right now?
The Hanged Man Rx – Make sure that you’re not allowing the closed-mindedness of others to influence your own perceptions. Be aware of where their motivations are centered in relation to the perspectives that they share instead of taking what is said at face value. Dig deeper and read between the lines, then let go of what doesn’t serve you instead of falling into the trap of their perspective being the only one.
2. Where do I need to shift my perspectives?
Queen of Cups – It is not a weakness to seek out support and a sympathetic ear when you need one. It takes strength to share your weakness with others and trust them to support you during those times instead of closing up and dealing with it all on your own.
3. How can I best re-charge my energy?
The Seeker – It’s time to get your ass back out in nature and do some hiking. This is about more than a bit of forest bathing, but should include some exertion and effort combined with the peace and comfort that the forest gives you. Realistically, you can’t go on your own right now, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go at all, just make sure you pick your trails wisely so that whoever you take along can keep up.
4. What is the best course of action for my highest good?
Page of Cups – Stay open and receptive to input and allow your creative energy to stretch and flex. Imagination and enjoyment in what you do is a good thing and will help you thrive and move forward, just make sure you’re not closing yourself off emotionally as it will close you off in other ways as well and none of them are healthy.
5. What belief do I need to leave behind??
Knight of Wands – That you have to be go-go-go all the time, moving non-stop toward your goals. It’s okay to rest, and it’s okay to take your time. Don’t worry so much about how fast you’re getting where you’re going. Instead slow down and enjoy the ride and the stops along the way. You’ll get where you want to go eventually and without the unhealthy pressure, burnout, and stress that going full speed all the time creates.
