This New Moon in Aries got super duper real with me. Talk about Tarot Tough Love! I haven’t had a chance to really sit down with my cards and fully check in with my Self in quite some time and I could feel the Aries fire burning brightly and a little more tumultuous than normal (quite possibly being fanned by my Libra airiness) really wanting a full-on check in. So, I grabbed my favorite decks, invited my Spirit Squad in and asked, “Hey Self, what do you really, really want?”

I finally was able to spend some quality time with my Spirit de la Lune deck! I’ve had it for longer than I’d like to admit but I felt like it was finally time to work with it since the new Linestrider came in. I could almost feel them calling out to each other! I thumbed through the Spirit de la Lune book to find a pretty interesting-looking spread called the Spiral Moon Spread. It’s a lovely spread and I’m so happy that I’ve taken my time with it.
How well do these two play along? Let’s find out!

Tonight’s Full Moon in Leo feels like a big one. I don’t know why but something about it does. I think that part of me is realizing that I have missed doing my New and Full Moon rituals at my old apartment in my own space and quiet time. And on these Moons, I would also bring all of my crystals friends out to my closed-in deck to cleanse them with Sage or Palo Santo or both. While I love my current living situation, one thing is missing: an outdoor deck. I’m not a huge fan of bringing my crystals out to the common area of the parking lot area at my apartment complex. Cleansing my crystals and decks is very sacred to me and not something I want to do while “on display”.
I decided I needed a new ritual, especially since it snowed last night and it’s way too cold to be outside for too long, says the Puerto Rican living in Atlanta. Winter and I do not get along. Yes, I enjoy the stillness and calm that Winter brings but I don’t enjoy bundling up. I’m still fine-tuning my indoor Winter Weather Advisory ritual and so far, I’m feeling pretty good. Lots of candles, incense, and Palo Santo burning away!
Luckily for us, this fiery Full Moon feels transformative. Maybe because it’s the first Full Moon on 2016. Maybe because it’s in confident, ambitious Leo. Either way, I’m loving the energies and I want to capitalize on these transformative, ambitious energies as much as I can!

Lisa at Angelorum is the master of creative spreads! I had so much fun with The Archer that I had to give her Christmas Presence spread a go! I was going to do it over the weekend but it just didn’t feel right to pull the cards out. Why? I have no idea. I guess the night before the Solstice felt better or maybe it was coincidence? Diving Timing? That seems to be the theme!

One word that has been popping up for me since I woke up yesterday: Surrender. Surrender to this, surrender to that…surrender to…The Universe. Instead of feeling quite like surrender meant “giving up”, I took it as “stop resisting”. I think Louise Androlia feels the same way! In fact, it was a link to her Surrender spread that made me aware of that word in my consciousness at that moment. I felt the ripple effects for the rest of the day, too!
Although the spread featured here is not Louise Androlia’s Surrender spread, I felt like Beth’s Creativity, Courage and Commitment spread was quite complimentary to yesterday’s theme. Speaking of compliments, check out how sweetly the Soul’s Journey Lesson Cards compliment my beautiful Linestrider! I felt so intensely about this reading and The Archer, so I compared notes 🙂

Phew! What a crazy few weeks I tell ya! The other night, I decided to pull my cards out and get back in touch with my spiritual self after having a long conversation with my boyfriend about why I was feeling guilty about taking such an extended break from my spiritual practice. I mean, I had started some wonderful Instagram challenges that involved Shadow Work and Inner Work, I had decided I wanted to do start diving in to my Inner Child and seeing what was there, and I was going to join a few of my coworkers in the Oprah and Deepak Meditation Challenge but…I put everything away. Not just because I was packing. In fact, I left all my spiritual items out until the very last second. So why was I so neglectful of my spiritual practice for this long?
