There was a Solar Eclipse this morning! 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 aspect of myself needs to be realigned?
Top Left – It’s okay to put things on the back burner when you’re not ready. It’s okay to put them on the back burner for a long ass time, if that’s what you need. Stop beating yourself up for setting these things aside. Stop shaming yourself and telling yourself over and over “I’ll pick this back up next week” or “I should pick this back up soon”. Instead, allow that time of rest and don’t worry about it. You will pick it back up when you’re ready and the time is right, there’s nothing to be ashamed about.
2. How can I let go of unhealthy expectations of myself?
Bottom Left – You don’t have to know every step of your path and exactly where you’re going every step of the way. The path you walk isn’t set in stone, it forms before you with every step you take. You don’t have to plan. Just take steps forward… and you will find your way just fine.
3. How can I let go of unhealthy expectations of others?
Top Right – Make sure that you’re listening to both your intuition and the guidance from your guides when it comes to what you offer to others and what expectations you allow to dictate your actions and your life. You aren’t a people pleaser, but you still fall into occasional pressures sometimes when you’re feeling vulnerable. Make sure that those pressures are aren’t to your detriment, and when your intuition and/or guides say no? Then don’t do it.
4. What part of my life could be healed during this time?
Bottom Right – You have an opportunity right now to embrace joy without guilt, and find a path that allows you to be more present in the here and now. Nurture yourself with abandon and enjoy instead of finding excuses to stay miserable or hang back from the growth awaiting you.
