On Monday is 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 the medicine within, and brought to you by Ethony‘s Tarot by the Moon series.
The card you’ve chosen to represent the change you want to bring about.
Rebirth – I want to rise out of the darkness of depression’s pit into the light and feel renewed again. It’s time to make the climb, and I’m trying, but it feels like it’s taking forever and that I’m not getting anywhere. I know that I am, in fact, getting there… I just long to feel that renewal of perspective, awareness, and joyous enjoyment that I know is coming. I wish I could just do it… experience it through will alone, but it is something that must unfurl at its own pace.
The most likely outcome if you make this change.
Shine – A return to self and boost of energy that will allow you to shine brightly for a time. Light and energy in free flow allowing your creative self to spark to shimmer and shine brightly.
What boundaries do I need to set during this change?
Revel – Make sure you are enjoying it, and not bogging yourself down or taking it for granted.
Just as you see the minute details of the forest and take pictures of them to share with the world while others tread the path and see nothing but “trees”, so too do you need to look at life and not allow negativity to influence you from missing out on the small treasures and other good stuff.
What do I need to let go of to move forward?
Flight – Fear. Don’t curl up and hide away, protecting yourself from those things that you fear. Instead, let go of your fear so that you can move forward beyond it and discover, in having done so, that what you feared was not that big of a deal after all.
What do I need to remember during this change?
Consequence – What you focus on is what manifests into reality. If you focus on the bad stuff, it’s the bad stuff that comes true. So make sure that you’re focusing on the good stuff. This way you are getting what you want out of the experience, instead of what you don’t want to come to pass manifesting as a consequence of where your focus lies.
Where do I need to be careful? Continue with caution around this.
Resilience – Don’t forget that at the moment you are the one that needs support. You are so open and willing to support others in so many different ways, but your energy is not boundless. Make sure you are saving some of that energy for yourself right now. You’ll survive the transition either way, but it’ll be a far more pleasant experience if you have more a bit more energy and give yourself a bit more slack for the time being.
What/who is my ally?
Pleasure atop Authenticity – Your allies at this time (and always, for that matter) are those that enjoy spending time with you and accept you exactly for who you are, quirks and flaws included. You may have a hard time believing this is true, but they are out there and they love you… just as you are.
New Moon advice from the Minoan Goddess Amalthea.
Make a Wish – It’s time to get back into doing your daily devotional to connect with the energies and elements that you want to keep as a part of your practice. This has been neglected for too long. And, you should begin including Amalthea in this daily ritual.
