New Moon Sagittarius Tarot Spread

New Moon in Sagittarius Tarot Spread

I am using the New Moon in Sagittarius spread created by Sarah of The Curious Cardslinger.

1.Where would I most benefit from a change of perspective?

Judgement

Well, this was not a surprise; I am, after all a judge-y Virgo. Being judgmental and self-critical are my jam. And lately, my self-talk tends to be damaging. Maybe it’s because of work pressure or just an accumulation of 2020 fatigues; the bottom line is I haven’t been nice to myself lately. So yes, changing the perspective on how I see myself and slowly working on self-acceptance would definitely benefit me during this new moon.

2.How can I see this area of my life more clearly?

Wheel of Fortune

Each moment is temporary, focus on the things you can control. And we can’t control everything. How do we move through change and meet our discomforts with understanding and joy?

The Wheel of Fortune is inviting me to remember when this current life that I complain a lot about was the life I wished to have. And now that I have it, I should be grateful for it. It also reminds me that things will get better, the things that I struggle with at the moment will be the things I will achieve in the future.

3. What lesson do I need to learn right now?

Four of Cups

The book’s interpretation of the card:

Complacency and boredom, a warning to come back to the present.

But I see it as being tired, needing a break. A clear sign to amp up my self care practice. Also, the cocktail glass sign at the back beckoned me to have a drink right after I finish writing this. Oh well, if the card said so, I shall follow the advice.

4.What opportunities can this open up for me?

The Magician

Manifestation! Creating my reality my way. Of course! I have been counting my workdays for the year. I can’t wait to take a break, recharge and start planning and manifesting my 2021.

5. How can I invite more fun into my life?

Five of Cups

Though I used the Moon Void Tarot deck when I did the spread, the Five of Cups in the Everyday Witch Tarot deck came into my mind as soon as I saw it. I think I have indulged in collective Covid negativity too long and too much that I stopped being grateful. Which to be fair, is admittedly a more challenging activity to cultivate amid feeling burned out. But I guess that is why now it is more critical than ever start using it as my daily tool again.

Meanwhile, interpreting purely from image of The Five of Cups on the Moon Void Tarot deck alone, I got the idea that having more fun for me might involve some kind of hobby — be it cooking (kitchen counter), painting (spilled ink) or photography (framed night sky).

6. Where should my attention be focused at this time?

Seven of Swords

The Seven of Swords can be interpreted as leaving a situation or even fleeing from a problem that I am not happy about. I think this card got to do more with work and yes, I can’t wait for my Christmas break next week.


I find it interesting that both the Four and Five of Cups showed up. Also that I pulled three major arcana cards and lastly, there was no Wands nor Pentacles suit.

Five of Cups The Everyday Witch Tarot

Five of Cups in Kyoto

I pulled Five of Cups today. Five of Cups is about feeling the lack of fulfilment or non-attainment of expected results and feeling disappointed that a situation didn’t turn out as expected.

Well, I am writing this from our ryokan in Kyoto. It is my second time in the city that I claimed to be my favourite place in the world. And as hard as it’s for me to admit, I didn’t enjoy Kyoto as much as I had the first time around.

Maybe it’s the ryokan we are staying in?

I was expecting for Fafa to be awed by his first time ryokan, but this Ryokan Hirashin is not good. There is an in-house onsen, which I checked out yesterday night. Sad to report back that it was below standard.

And Kyoto is unbelievably crowded thanks to the peak tourist season.

Maybe that’s why I don’t feel the connection I felt to Kyoto the first time around?

Well, I still enjoyed our day out earlier, just that I have been reminiscing about our earlier days in Tokyo too many times today.
