Full Moon in Aquarius

Every time I am working with the cards, I cannot help but hold my breath as I flip them over. My reaction is more telling when the cards are revealed than anything else. Which is why I think I struggle to read for others. I am not a predictive reader. I use it as a tool to gauge my responses/reactions to problems in my life. It is a tool to listen to myself in a deeper way than what is bubbling up at the surface. I am sure there is a way to harness the way I read Tarot and read for other people, and I am sure there are readers out there who do it this way. I just haven’t figured it out yet.

Using Ethony’s Tarot by the Moon guide, the Full Moon in Aquarius spread, this was my reading:

  1. What possibilities are being offered to me right now? The Tower
  2. What area of my life is craving freedom and experimentation? The Lovers
  3. Where in my life can I bring more unity? The Hanged Man
  4. What old habits/beliefs need to be released under this Full Moon? Two of Cups
  5. Where do I need to go with the flow? Three of Wands

This reading very quickly became all about my connections with others and upheaval in my life. I have a lot of walls and boundaries in place to protect myself from others. Most people around me are kept at arm’s length. I am comfortable with the distance, physically and emotionally. I did not use to be this way, but continually getting burned makes it hard to get close to the flame.

It may be time for some changes. I need to let go of the relationships that I feel are toxic and that no longer serve a purpose in my life other than stress and discomfort. And I need to be more open with those who I do feel closest to. Those who I trust can be brought in.
