I see a bad moon a’risin’ #Tarot

It’s been a rough month, but I’m slowly trying to regroup, reassess, and recuperate. I’m told a total lunar eclipse arrives tonight bringing with it a blood moon. Coincidentally, Mars will also be at its brightest this evening. All makes for a spectacular astrological convergence that I need to take advantage of.

I decided this morning to try the new tarot spread I’ve been working on and thought I would share my results with you. This is a six card read, with a variable. Let’s give it a run.

First, you determine how many cards you will need to draw. Do this by adding the day’s date as follows: 7/27/2018 = 7+2+7+2+0+1+8 = 27 = 2+7 = 9.

So, nine cards. Six are your read, with three that are discarded. Cards that are drawn and set aside represent aspects of yourself that you need to cast aside for the day.

Here’s how the cards laid themselves out for me:

The discards were the 3 of Pentacles, the 4 of Wands, and The Hermit. These cards represent collaboration, harmony, and introspection, three things I should expect to be without today.

Next, the first card of the read is crossed above you, representing you in the present. I drew the King of Wands. This focuses on my generosity and leadership.

The following card is my opposition, my challenge. It is laid over the top of me. I draw Temperance, which is balance and moderation.

The next card in the spread, the 5 of Pentacles, represents what’s coming, being poverty, insecurity, and worries. Great.

It is followed by the Queen of Pentacles which should reflect the source of the problem — a mother-figure and grounded, down-to-earth, practical energy.

The next card in the spread should reflect where I need to look for answers. In this case, I draw the 3 of Swords, a card that represents the negative actions of an outside party. This is a tricky one and requires some thought. Are the cards telling me I’m on my own, or advising me to accept bad advice?

Maybe the final card will help clarify? It represents what I need to do to resolve my problem. For it, I draw The Moon. Talk about synchronicities. This card represents illusion and deception, but also dreams and intuition.

The cards are telling me to trust my instincts in navigating what is to come.

Now that’s some advice I can get behind.
