Yesterday was the new 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 taking back your power, and brought to you by Sharron Basanti of Seeds of Shakti.
1. Where do I need to call back my power from?
Temperance atop Ace of Cups – Again, the cards are indicating that it’s time to rest and relax, and not worry so much about your emotional growth. Soon, preparation for the holiday rush will begin as you need this time to get yourself moderated and rested, aligned and ready. The only way to do this is through moderation.
2. How can I lovingly stand in my fierceness?
Four of Swords and Strength – Taking stock of where you’re at and practicing a mindfulness of gratitude are the key to making sure that you are able to remain both kind and fierce in good measure.
3. How can I hold sacred space for my inner child to flourish and convey a light-hearted energy?
Nine of Pentacles – Again, this is a time for you to rest and it’s in this rest. The inner strength that you will gain through this time of rest will provide space for the inner child to flourish within, and allow the more playful side of their nature to emerge.
4. How can I express my love and generosity to those in my kindred circle?
The Sun – Make space for fun. Encourage it not just in your time with them, but in their own lives as well.
5. Message from the Ancestors.
Five of Swords – You’ve got this. Don’t give up.
