Not only does another week start tomorrow, but tonight is a full moon. Usually I get together with a friend on the full moon to do a reading, but she’s celebrating her birthday with her mother this weekend. We’re going to get together tomorrow night, but I couldn’t pass up this chance to do my own reading.
I went all out when I set up my reading space. I have some lovely incense, along with some blessing candles. White for the blessing and to clear energy, purple for psychic powers, and green for money. Because money is always a good thing to ask from the universe! I told you recently that I don’t think that I believe in magic, but if I’m going to read the cards, then I don’t want to miss out on anything that the universe might send my way! 😉
For my special readings, I usually do the Celtic Cross that is outlined in my book on tarot, Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom. Here’s my draw tonight:
- Center (or signifier): Hanged Man
- Crossing: IX Pentacles
- Basis: Hierophant, reversed
- Recent past: IV Wands
- Possible Outcome: Ace of Wands, reversed
- Self: Ace of swords
- Environment: III swords
- Hopes & Fears: judgement
- Outcome: VI Pentacles
I am always looking for the perfect way to live the life of the hanged man – completely on my own path, happy as a lark, despite what society thinks of me. I’m not usually so successful with that! To deepen this desire, I was crossed with the IX pentacles – a person rich in wisdom and at one with the natural world – yes, please! The cards knew what I was after when I pulled the reversed hierophant – I’m looking for a life that is unorthodox and original.
Even though I’ve been so happy with my job lately, I’m still looking for something more. I suppose that’s the P in my INFP – prospecting. I’m scared that I’m going to stop moving and that I’ll start to feel stuck in the grind of going to work everyday and working for “the man,” instead of feeling like I’m spending every day working on the things that are most important to me. I want a life of movement – a small business that exactly reflects who I am. Of course, my environment is full of the three loves of my life (so funny that I pulled the III of swords in this spot) – I want to make sure that I’m doing my part to provide and care for my husband and our children and I am so scared of judgement from the outside world — I always have been! But I know that if I put in the work and the time, then I’ll be rewarded with exactly what I need.
I’m planning to go out and spend a little time with the full moon tonight. I have been so ridiculously happy with my life lately and I wish I knew who to thank for that.
