The New Moon is a wonderful time to think about what you want to create, to take that seed of an idea that is within you and nurture it, help it to grow. This is a time to let go of what you no longer need, and to set a clear intention of what you want to manifest in yourself and in your life going forward. Connect with that powerful energy of the Moon to support you as you dream, imagine, see possibilities and start a new adventure!
Here is a quick three card spread that I like to use on the eve of the New Moon…
This is what I pulled for myself today, in honor of the New Moon, to give you a brief idea of how it works:
1: What Can I Let Fade Out of Influence: Knight of Wands
Interesting! This is actually how I feel today…full of fire and urgency, bursting with ideas but no focus, feeling a little reckless and disorganized, feeling driven to DO DO DO with out reflection. This card is telling me that this energy isn’t serving me well, it may be time for calm, for planning, for mature focus rather than frantic running around.
2: What Idea is Growing within Me: The Ace of Wands
How wonderful! Aces epitomize new ideas, potential, new beginnings…and the Ace of Wands is that EUREKA moment, that AHA moment! Here I see that I can hang on to the enthusiasm of the fiery Wands, but it is time to focus on that one idea that seems to be bursting with potential, and to nurture and grow that. There is an opportunity in front of me, a gift that is there for the taking…time to grab it.
3: What Can I Commit to Create Going Forward: Page of Swords
So now we transition from the world of spirit and fire to the intellectual swords…and from that reckless Knight to the optimistic Page. This card is telling me that I am still just starting out in many ways, but it is time to commit to whatever needs to be done to grow. The approach that will serve me well is the curiosity and openness of the Page, but with a solid base of that Sword intellect and logic. Don’t get ahead of myself, create a step by step process that will take me where I want to go.
Please give this spread a try and let me know how it works for you! I wish you all the best, that the intentions you set at the New Moon will come to beautiful fruition with the Full Moon.
