Tonight 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 about the medicine within, and brought to you by Ethony‘s Tarot by the Moon series.
What emotion wants to be honoured at this time?
The Magician – Your sense of ingenuity and capability. You don’t often recognize and appreciate just how resourceful you are and how this lifts you up in life. That ability provides for you a sense of security that you wouldn’t otherwise have, and it’s something you need to honor a bit more during this full moon.
What emotion am I suppressing?
The Hermit – The longing for alone time to just be with yourself and reflect. Mostly, this is being suppressed because this time of year you are susceptible to depression and it is too easy to slide from healthy alone time into the unhealthy variety. As your Self-Care Saturday reading indicated earlier this week, though, you need to get out in nature and recharge. Ignoring this need won’t make anything better, only letting yourself have that time will.
What action can I take to honour my emotions?
The Chariot – Just do it. Stop fighting against the things that feel uncomfortable and stop shaming yourself. Honor your emotions by actually giving them room to run and acknowledging that they are important and valid.
What is my higher self asking me to reflect on this full moon?
Eight of Wands – What are you rushing for? Internal anxiety and adrenaline isn’t needed right now to keep you going or to get things done. They’ll get done (and at the same speed) even if you aren’t putting undue pressure on yourself.
How can I slow down and stay in touch with my emotions?
King of Wands – You need to get in touch with what you really want and what you really want to stand for. Apply this to your own life.
