New Moon Tarot Spread (August - September 2018)

New Moon Tarot Spread

There was a New Moon on Saturday which meant it was time to do a new moon tarot spread. Last month, I did Biddy Tarot's manifestation spread; this month,  I wanted to try something different, so I did my own spread instead.

Where I am currently (Ace Of Wands/Upright)

Keywords: Inspiration, power, creation, beginnings, potential.

When I pulled this card, the first thing I noticed is that the staff looks like it's standing tall despite the gust of wind trying to blow it over.  

To me, this card represented inner strength, power, and new beginnings; the staff is saying "I'm here, and I'm not going anywhere'.

This card was very timely; if you've followed my blog, you know that I've been going through a time, now I'm at the other end, I feel free, strong, and like I take on anything that comes my way. 

What I am ready to leave behind (Temperance/Reversed)

Keywords: imbalance, excess, lack of long-term vision. 

When I pulled this card, I noticed that because the card was reversed, the cups look like they're trying to fill each other, but can't because they're being drained, I also noticed the river looks like it's flowing back up the mountain.

To me. this represented being drained, and a lack of energy. I'm really over this feeling, and it's definitely something I'm ready to let go of. 

What is emerging within me (8 of cups/upright)

Keywords: escapism, disappointment, abandonment, withdrawal. 

The first thing I noticed when I pulled this card, was the person climbing the mountain. The words that came to mind were strength and perseverance. To me, it's the feeling that I'm ready to take on anything that comes my way; I feel unstoppable, and like I can do anything. 

What am I stepping into (5 of cups/upright)

Keywords: loss, regret, disappointment, despair, bereavement

When I pulled this card, I noticed half the cups have fallen over; to me, this was about being drained, exhausted, and deflated. I have to admit when I first saw this card, I was pretty disappointed and confused. What the fuck universe?! I'm stepping into loss, bereavement, regret, and exhaustion, I thought I was letting that shit go! FUCK YOU!!

 Looking at this reading as a whole though, this card made made sense. I may feel unstoppable right now, but I know if I go balls to the wall with everything because I'm feeling better I will burn out. This card was a great reminder of that. 

MY TAKEAWAY

This reading pretty much sums up where I’m at right now; I haven’t been in the best headspace lately - right now I’m feeling better than I have in a while, and I’m ready to let go of the sadness, negativity, and depression that has been holding me back.  Stepping into a better mindset means I feel unstoppable; I want to do it all and I want to do it now, but I know if I don’t pace myself or allow myself to take a break when I need one or ask for help when I need it I will end up burning out.

This reading is very similar to one I did for myself last week; it feels as if the cards are trying to tell me something...
