VIII of Cups/8 of Water

8 of cups (2)

The Eight of Cups is the ultimate walking away.  It’s finally achieving everything – all the goals you’ve created for yourself have been accomplished, you’ve made it to where you thought you wanted to be, and recognize that this isn’t what you wanted after all.  This walking away is very powerful.  It’s the ultimate courage to give up everything you’ve worked toward and having faith in yourself and the universe to walk away from something you know isn’t right.  Continue reading

New Moon in Aquarius: 3-Card Spread

The New Moon in Aquarius is coming up on Thursday, February 15th.  This is an important moon for clearing away what’s not serving us and releasing what’s dragging us down.  Importantly, February only has a new moon – there’s no full moon this month.  Do some reflection on what areas of our life need improvement.  A spotlight may come up intuitively and nudge you in a certain direction.  Use the following new moon three-card spread to investigate and observe.  Set your intention to clear away what’s no longer serving us.

This particular new moon also is a partial eclipse.  This provides an extra opportunity to reboot.  Finally, the new moon in Aquarius is about a leap of faith.  This Aquarius energy tells us to go all-in – what do you need to let go of in order to run full steam ahead?  Be brave and trust in the universe to guide you.
