For the New Moon, I’ve decided to do something a little different and mix things up. This time I’m using both Tarot and Oracle for the New Moon. While the Tarot will give us the direction and the Oracle will provide themes we might need to pay attention to during this New Moon cycle. I will be reading with the Legacy of the Divine Tarot and the NYC Vintage Subway Wanderlust Oracle.
Taking a peek at the astrology the New Moon is at 6degrees of Taurus. Not a surprise as we entered Taurus season a few days ago. However, keep in mind we are still in the midst of Mercury Retrograde. For more on the Astrology, I direct you to the Astrology King for more details. Click Here.
So, let’s look at the Tarot:
The Moon is the first card up and it is slightly amusing to see the image of a moon that is so full yet we are in the dark moon phase. However, this is a very fitting card as the Moon sometimes keeps us from seeking the truth we need to see. I’m drawn to the dog that is howling at the moon. Our Goddess in the moonlight is totally oblivious which makes me ask are you hearing the messages that you need to hear? Are you seeing the truth in a situation? While it is okay to think we have things figured out, make sure you see things as they really are.
The Empress: what a lovely and fitting card for Spring. This card is brimming with Life. So, of course, this is the time to plant your seeds and see what comes forth. You have tons of ideas and this is the time to act on them. To take those first steps. As I said in the Weekly you are ending one journey and starting another. We all have ideas that are ramping up. Playing off the Moon we have so many ideas that we want to act on we just will need to truly look at the ones we are most passionate about.
The Ace of Swords is telling us to speak our truth. To own who we are and by doing so we will allow our ideas to take flight. The Eagle is a powerful creature. Use its power to focus on your intuition and your creativity. Your focus will be key during this time in getting accomplished what you want to do. Look at things honestly, ideas are included in this.
The Two of Cups is one of my face cards as it truly is about love. However, this time I feel it is more about blending your feminine and masculine sides. If there is something that you’ve always wanted to do something that has been perceived to be of the opposite sex get out of your way and do it. This is a time to love yourself and love what you do. You never know who or what you might discover by stepping out of your comfort zone.
Resting on the Ace of Swords. I recommend taking some time to discover the truth about what makes you tick. Look at what holds you back as well as what gives you strength. This is a time to explore and look at the world through fresh eyes. Time to release some of those blocks from the past.
Hmm, the Nine of Swords is playing games with our thoughts and our dreams. This is the card that can distract us from what we want. Sure there might be some truth but what if there isn’t? What if this is just our shadow self, holding us back like it has in the past,
Resting on t the Ace of Swords, well it’s up to you to cut through the BS. You have great ideas but are you going to allow the negative self-talk creep in and keeping you from what you’ve always wanted to try? Are you going to allow it to keep you from allowing your dreams to take flight? Cut through the crap and get serious about what you want. If you have questions or are uncertain about your plans then right them out. See all that it will entail. No one says you have to rush in but you will regret if you don’t at least try.
The Magician is saying that you have the power and the tools that will allow you to create what you want. There is energy in your thoughts and your words. Even more important, as you take action you will gain energy and be amazed at the transformation you are creating.
Resting on the Two fo Cups and the Nine of Swords. Find your balance and know your truths. Keep the negativity at bay. You have the power, now is the time to take control.
So what are the Key Features that will help us through this New Moon.
Some will be looking for Mr or Ms. Right while others will just be looking to reconnect. This doesn’t mean that it has to be a romantic relationship. In fact thinking of the other cards in the reading I would say this is about your passion. Find the Romance for something that you love to do or create. Rekindle that fire.
Get Fancy. Maybe it si time to think about changing things up. Add a little style to what you are wearing. If you don’t wear makeup, take the words of my Grandmother and never leave home without a little lipstick on. If you have a set of dishes or an outfit that you love but it is only for a special occasion break it out. You’re alive and healthy so hey, that’s a special occasion. So get Fancy and enjoy.
Be Unique, well in some cases by Getting Fancy you will be Unique. On a serious side though embrace the fact that you aren’t like everyone else. Put yourself and your ideas out there. Sure some may reject you but you know what there will be others that love you.
Lastly, we have Adventure and I must say that I love that it has special there in the image. Think about this if you embrace your passion and get a little fancy and show your uniqueness you are bound to be in for an adventure. Because more than anything else you will be in for an adventure of a lifetime and one that you’ve dreamed of for years.
Well, that’s the New Moon. I hope you enjoyed the mixed reading. Let me know if you think I should do it for the Full Moon or stick to the normal tarot. Hope you got the insight you were looking for.
Remember don’t forget to set your intentions.
