For those of you who like to lay cards to help focus the Full Moon energy, I have designed this spread from a consideration of the planetary associations of The New Sagittarius Moon, that fell on November 29th 2017, and The Full Sagittarius Moon that falls on June 9th 2017.
The New Moon which fell in the first decan of Sagittarius, drew strong aspects from Neptune, whilst The Full Moon, this week, draws them again, suggesting that the whole cycle has been infused with the inspiration, confusion, delusion and sense of longing and loss that comes along with this outer planet of mystery and spirituality.
In my earlier post, a discussion of the tarot cards that I associate with the current Sagittarius cycle: “Dreams Are The Seeds of Change” refer to the elements of alchemical transformation that are linked to these two cards. The nature of “psychic gestation” that has been occurring, the “seed knowledge” that has been attained as a result of this process, and the plan for continuation and survival that will have emerged as a process of the whole experience of the last six months. Bearing all this in mind, I have created the following spread, as a method of unlocking the wisdom inherent in this particular Full Moon, helping to release the power and the strength that is available to all of us, if we so wish.
Shuffle your chosen deck, and focus on what has been occurring for you in the last 6 months, the phases of dramatic and rapid change, illness, breakdown, emotional cleansing and rebirth, and revelation that is the hallmark of this cycle, and draw 5 cards:
Card 1: What spiritual beliefs have I had to let go of for change to take place?
Card 2: What emotional attachments have I had to let go of for change to occur?
Card 3: What is the seed that has been born out of this crucible?
Card 4: In what way am I stronger as a result of this process?
Card 5: What do I take forward as my new vision of strength and empowerment?
Cards 1 & 2 can be seen as the parents of card 3. Card 3 is the result of the process.
Card 4 represents an aspect of yourself that will have been strengthened by your experiences, look to the element to see the area of life most affected.
Card 5 will be useful energies that you can employ in the future to assist you in carrying out your true will, in difficult situations. I hope that you find this spread insightful, and as usual, please feel free to share and pass on. To read more about the meaning behind this cycle…. read more here. Dreams Are The Seeds of Change.
