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?
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.
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.
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.
This one is a bit hard for me to understand. I would like to think this deck is going to support my tarot journey through thick and thin. It’s also very moldable as in I can use it for any type of reading, from personal to professional, from fun stuff to heart breaks.
Leadership through emotional strength. The limit of this deck is finding a balance of emotions. Managing feelings without repressing them. Listening to unconscious without being overwhelmed by it. How to show compassion to the community while taking care of oneself.
I draw the Wheel of Fortune today. It’s about anything is possible, fortune and turning the wheel — to the direction I want or the opposite. Either way, I can’t really connect the card to today’s events even though it has been a good day.
I got free coffee at work. I went to see our wedding room. I finalized the vows. And my prep-meals package came today. I don’t have anything significant that is stressing me out.
I might even start writing again. I mean, I have the time and energy. So why not? Is this what the possibility in the Wheel of Fortune mean?
Maybe I will, but now the thought of it overwhelms me.
