4 of pentacles, 9 of cups, 10 of cups from Tarot of the Holy Spectrum
This full moon in Leo is giving you permission to dare to dream again. It asks you to rest. Dream. And to share your love. The message is to feel abundant in your love, your time, your energy. To reclaim your time and imagination. A way of lighting the tired and weary parts of you. Lately it hasn’t felt safe to trust, to feel happy, to commit to the belief that the wheel is turning and change is near. This full moon is a respite in the storm. A warm beverage that soothes you to the bone. Laughter ringing through the room.
I am reminded of Zeba Blay’s weekly Sunday energy boards on Instagram. Ease, rest, but no bullshit. Tenderness isn’t weakness. It is honesty, it is vulnerability, and it is shaped by the boundaries that we create so that we may have safe containers for our love to flourish.
Your mind may resist this call to rest and experience pleasure, but what is your body telling you? Your heart and feelings? Your dreams, when allowed space to be and grow, touch every aspect of your life, and beyond. Use today to be with them and yourself. It may feel uncomfortable. But it is just the medicine that is needed.
Strength in the tarot is ruled by Leo. You can see a version of the traditional imagery of this card as illustrated by the Tarot of the Holy Spectrum, with a figure facing a lion. Instead of fear or discomfort, the moment is intimate, delicate, present, and probing.
How would it feel for you to be present with your desires? the part of you that doesn’t speak with words necessarily, but with feelings and impulses.
Strength asks us to be in conversation with our desires by being in equilibrium with our higher self and our humanity. We are invited to go the source of our sense of action. What compels us to feel, to lust, to fear? In strength, we allow space for our impulses to say their piece and honor their stories, without judgement, without fixing, without interference. In this we at one with a quality of strength that comes from being in harmony with our instincts, especially the ones that evoke discomfort in us. We approach our desires with delicacy, care, and curiosity. through this experience we are transformed by our courage, our willingness to take this step, channeled through the radical and loving power of presence.
