New Moon Reading for October

As part of following the lunar calendar, I again drew two cards from the Tarot of the Sidhe (Schiffer, 2011) to represent what I should release and what I should embrace over the coming lunation.


To me, the message feels quite clear.  Perhaps that's just me, as it's almost the same message as I read in the cards at the last new moon.  Or perhaps it's just that, while I'm pregnant, this is one of the most important messages I can hear.

I need to release the Maker Queen (Queen of Pentacles).  Although this is a beautiful card, right now I can't just pour myself out and try to be abundant and giving to all.  Rather, I need to focus on the responsibility I have to this life growing inside of me, as suggested by the Maker Two.

This is quite a tricky one for me.  I feel I have a lot of material responsibilities, to my son, my partner, our home, our livelihood.  And I sometimes feel guilty at the idea of saying, "Well, as I'm pregnant..."  And yet, it's also true that I'm feeling far more drained and tired with this pregnancy than I remember from back with my son.  Which may be because I'm older, or may be because this pregnancy is thriving more, or may be because I have a sleep debt going back 6 years and more responsibilities than I did back then.  Whatever the case, perhaps I will have to pull the pregnancy card a bit more often, for the sake of this child, as well as myself...

  2. I think you have your priorities just right. Everything but you and the baby is secondary now. Which doesn't mean they're less loved. Take care and try to sleep some more. Because you're pregnant you're allowed to :) <3

    1. Ha, I might be allowed to, but I'm not always capable of it. Was awake at 5.30am this morning, so I've gone downstairs to do stuff on-line. Still, I'll go back for a nap shortly... :D

  3. There's absolutely nothing wrong with putting yourself and the baby first. Very sensible.

    1. Well, other things are important, too. My DH admitted yesterday that he's a bit worried about "losing me" to the baby. Though I don't think I'm an overly clingy mother. Anyhow, I take it as a reminder to at least tell him how much I appreciate him, even as I disappear off for another nap ;)
