Yesterday around noon was the centre point of the New Moon, which some call the Wolf Moon, others the New Moon in Capricorn, and which Eowyn has given the delightful title of Quiet Moon. I decided to once again ask, at this fulcrum point, what I need to release and what I should embrace over the coming lunation.
Drawing from the Tarot of the Sidhe (Schiffer, 2011), my answer was that I need to release the Maker Queen (Queen of Pentacles) and embrace the Star.
This feels like a variation on the theme I've been receiving for a while now, which makes sense as I'm still pregnant (in fact more so every day). The Maker Queen came up in the same position just two new moon's ago. So, I need to let go of pouring myself out for others, and perhaps nurture and heal myself rather than focusing outward on those around me. I see, too, the suggestion not to take on too much work - the Maker Queen can be quite entrepreneurial, creating abundance.
Instead, I should embrace the Star: meditation, looking inward, and accepting guidance and help. This card says it's okay to admit my vulnerabilities, and to accept assistance from others. It suggests, in particular, seeking spiritual guidance. That's an interesting one: firstly, a reminder to meditate more regularly, but secondly perhaps to look for guidance in other quarters. A friend gave me a Skype reading with James Ricklef for Christmas, and he is certainly a spiritual guide I respect...
