On Sunday is the first new moon of the new year, 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 the medicine within, and brought to you by Ethony‘s Tarot by the Moon series.
Where do I need to stand strong?
The Altar – Responsibility to the forefront. Now is not the time for frivolity. You can have plenty of fun, but don’t indulge in yourself and behaviors that will pull your focus away from your responsibilities.
How can I challenge myself in 2022?
Cannis Major – Work on leaving the past in the past where it belongs. You made good strides in this towards the end of the summer and throughout the fall of last year. This card indicates that this year is a good time to pick this effort back up and expand on it further through the year.
Where in my life requires more sensitivity?
The Eagle – Your moral compass and in following your truth. You don’t have to be so cruel to yourself when self-correcting. There is also encouragement here in this card to approach your connection with (and reaching for) the divine with a less aggressive approach. This doesn’t mean avoiding or ignoring, but to consider Almathea’s approach with an open mind and heart. You’ve hedged long enough… but neither do you need to dive in headlong.
What long-term goals and plans need my attention?
Virgo – Getting organized and sorting out priorities. You want shelves for your decks. This is a long term projecr that needs to be worked toward instead of “diving in” and expecting to complete it quickly. Don’t be afraid of the chaos. There’s always chaos before things fall into order.
What is the next best practical step forward?
Andromeda – Take in the big picture. Look at what lies on your plate and be realistic with the expectations you set for yourself.
