Full Moon in Pisces – September 2021

Today 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 ebb and flow, and brought to you by Sharron Basanti of Seeds of Shakti.

Full Moon In Pisces Tarot Reading - Journey of the Bearded Tarot

1. What emotional wounds need to be cleansed by the healing waters of the Pisces Full Moon?

Five of Air – Your sense of defeat. It can be hard to keep going when you feel beaten down and are just waiting for the next shoe to drop. Take a breath and let these feelings ease, and release that tight grip you have on the anticipation of more to come.

2. What do I need to surrender to the ebb and flow of the Universal ocean?

Four of Earth – Let go of the expectation of yourself that everything you do has to be perfect. Sometimes “good enough” really is good enough.

3. What emotions is the Full Moon magnifying that need to be explored?

Page of Fire – You need to look more deeply into why you feel the need to push so hard. What is it that has you so determined to drown yourself in work before the holiday rush has even begun?

4. How can I allow my intuition to flow with more ease?

Hierophant Rx – Be less rigid with yourself and others about how things are “supposed to be”. Individuality, as  you know, holds a massive amount of value.  Everyone’s path is different, including your own, so don’t be so exacting with yourself. Adaptability and flexibility are extremely important.

5. What messages is the Universe sending to me as I sleep?

Knight of Water – This card is an echo of a message provided in my Self Care Saturday reading for this week. Watch closely for those looking to manipulate you through emotional means. Pay attention to the tugging of heartstrings that feel like marionette strings on your will and decisions.

6. Message from the Ancestors.

Five of Earth – You’re not going to get where you want to go this week. Don’t get discouraged, just adapt and keep going.

Second Full Moon in Aquarius – August 2021

Yesterday was the second Full Moon in Aquarius, 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 brought to you by Ethony‘s Tarot By the Moon series.

Frau Grand Duchess Tarot - Blue Moon in Aquarius Tarot Reading

1. What area of my life is craving expansion?

The Magician – You crave developing new skills and testing them. You crave using your abilities to their fullest to achieve your dreams and goals. To prove you can do it. The key is to find a way to do this in a healthy way instead of in the self destructive ways you have done it in the past.

2. What part of myself is awakened?

The Tower atop Seven of Wands – The awareness that life isn’t fair no matter how much you want it to be. Sometimes things fall apart no matter how hard you rail against the unfairness and injustice of it all.

3. Where do I need to be discerning?

Force – Choose your battles wisely. There’s no point railing against the things that you can’t change, better to use your inner strength to stand tall even when these things happen.

4. What action do I need to take?

Seven of Coins – Don’t allow your rise in anxiety to send you into a spiral, and thus cause you to begin to rush and push yourself harder. You need to continue to take things slow, and consciously focus on that slow path of growth for a while longer.

5. Message from the Ancestors.

Queen of Swords – It’s okay to be salty about what happened. That recent ordeal weighs heavy on your mind, but don’t let it drag you down.

Full Moon in Aquarius – July 2021

Tomorrow 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 brought to you by Ethony‘s Tarot By the Moon series.

Full Moon in Aquarius Tarot Reading with the Tarot of Trees 10th Anniversary Edition

1. What possibilities are being offered to me right now?

Six of Cups -The potential to choose your own path, especially in your emotional growth and how it relates to the rest of your life. This lies in the opportunity to let things go that do not belong as a part of the present. In spilling these issues from the Cups of your present and leaving them on the floor of the past, you allow yourself to open up to more freedoms, choices, and potential for growth.

2. What area of my life is craving freedom and experimentation? (check the suit of this card for big clues)

Eight of Cups – Emotionally, you are ready to move on from the shit that isn’t working. Let’s not stand still. Begin shedding those things that are not working for you and leaving them behind. Related:  I think it’s time to take the stuff I’ve been trying to get rid of on eBay for the past year to charity.  They’ve been listed long enough and remain unsold. I’m tired of having it all sitting around, waiting to leave.

3. Where can I be more open minded?

Roots – Be open to grounding in different ways and keep your mind open to the sharing of others (including your mother). Nurture yourself and others by digging deeper. Deeper into what is being said. Deeper into the thought process, the assumptions, and the perspectives that are shared with you.  Dig deeper into these things and open to what you make uncover within those depths.

4. What old habits/beliefs need to be released under this full moon?

Five of Pentacles – It’s time to acknowledge that your feelings of scarcity are an echo from the past and have nothing to do with your present reality.  This reflects back to the first question in this reading, and reaffirms the message that it’s time to leave the past in the past, acknowledge that’s where it belongs, and that these feelings have no relevance in the present.

5. Where do I need to go with the flow?

Queen of Swords – Don’t be so stuck on how things should be that you forget to look at how they could be. Allow others to broaden your horizons.

Tomorrow 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 brought to you by Ethony‘s Tarot By the Moon series.

Radiant Scales Tarot - New Moon in Cancer Tarot Reading

1. How can I bring more balance to my home?

Page of Water atop The Devil – Don’t allow your emotional vulnerabilities to stir up your tendency to self medicate through addiction. Just because you’re not addicted to drugs doesn’t mean you don’t have addictions that can become unhealthy if left unchecked.

2. What old family beliefs need to be healed?

Ten of Air – When you fuck up, you fuck up. End of story. There is no try again, there is no second chance. This mentality perpetuated my “never enough” issues that you still struggle with to this day.

3. What old family patterns need examining?

The Emperor – Issues with authority due to the way that authority over you was abused throughout your formative years. Not all authority figures are your enemy or someone to butt heads with.

4. How can I be a more impactful community member?

Nine of Fire – You are already doing enough.

5. Message from the Ancestors.

King of Air – You’re a strong and resourceful, and with the right strategy you can do anything you put your mind to.

Solar Eclipse in Gemini – June 2021

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.

Solar Eclipse in Gemini Reading - Love and Magic Oracle

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.

Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius – May 2021

Along with the Full Moon, which I did a reading for yesterday, tomorrow is also a Lunar Eclipse!  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.

Lua Tarot - Lunar Eclipse Tarot Reading

1. What external influences are not serving my highest good right now?

The Hanged Man Rx – Make sure that you’re not allowing the closed-mindedness of others to influence your own perceptions. Be aware of where their motivations are centered in relation to the perspectives that they share instead of taking what is said at face value.  Dig deeper and read between the lines, then let go of what doesn’t serve you instead of falling into the trap of their perspective being the only one.

2. Where do I need to shift my perspectives?

Queen of Cups – It is not a weakness to seek out support and a sympathetic ear when you need one.  It takes strength to share your weakness with others and trust them to support you during those times instead of closing up and dealing with it all on your own.

3. How can I best re-charge my energy?

The Seeker – It’s time to get your ass back out in nature and do some hiking. This is about more than a bit of forest bathing, but should include some exertion and effort combined with the peace and comfort that the forest gives you.  Realistically, you can’t go on your own right now, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go at all, just make sure you pick your trails wisely so that whoever you take along can keep up.

4. What is the best course of action for my highest good?

Page of Cups  – Stay open and receptive to input and allow your creative energy to stretch and flex.  Imagination and enjoyment in what you do is a good thing and will help you thrive and move forward, just make sure you’re not closing yourself off emotionally as it will close you off in other ways as well and none of them are healthy.

5. What belief do I need to leave behind??

Knight of Wands – That you have to be go-go-go all the time, moving non-stop toward your goals.  It’s okay to rest, and it’s okay to take your time.  Don’t worry so much about how fast you’re getting where you’re going. Instead slow down and enjoy the ride and the stops along the way.  You’ll get where you want to go eventually and without the unhealthy pressure, burnout, and stress that going full speed all the time creates.
