Last month's reading turned out to be spot-on - this month really has felt like a spiritual rebirth in many ways, and I did have to hold on tight to my sense of who I am. Much of that is ongoing, so I was curious to see what this month's cards would say:

Where I am now: Two of Pentacles
Theme for this month: Temperance
What to look out for: King of Pentacles

Looks like this month is all going to be about balance. Two of Pentacles says I'm juggling a lot of things right now and need to be careful not to unbalance myself by pushing too hard. This is almost eerie, because I've used the juggling metaphor a few times this week to describe how I feel after coming back from holiday - I've been having a lot of trouble getting back into my routine, feeling like there are too many small things to juggle (bigger ones feel like they're going okay.) Temperance of course is also about balance, and could be seen as reassurance that I will regain my equilibrium over the course of this month. King of Pentacles is probably telling me to keep a level head, stay grounded and work hard. It might also be indicative of a shift in my newest relationship as we approach our first anniversary and develop a clearer sense of its shape and its strength.
Last month did seem to have some effect in unblocking my emotions (see the previous post in this comm), which was good. This month's draw:-

Where I am now: Five of Wands
Theme for the coming month: Death (reversed)
Things to look out for: Hanged Man (reversed)

This seems to be saying that I'm currently preparing for the future and that this is about to accelerate in some way. The next month should be a time of hope and rebirth. However, the Hanged Man card seems to tell me that I should be careful not to let the changes run away with me - I need to exercise some caution as well, and not give up my sense of who I am. Sounds like an interesting month ahead!

I've recently decided to do a spread each new moon, so I thought I'd post this month's results here (belatedly, I realise). I'm using a simple three-card spread where the first card indicates where I am now, the second gives a theme for the month, and the third suggests something to pay particular attention to this month. I'm using the Revelations deck, which incorporates reversed imagery for all the cards. We're fairly new to each other. This month's draw:

Queen of Swords (reversed)
Knight of Wands (reversed)
Ace of Wands (reversed)

Oookay then! I think this is to do with the fact that I've been feeling out of touch with my emotions since I did my Master's - too much intellectual work at the expense of the creative and practical. So it looks like this month is going to be about undoing the things that are still blocking me. I've already been doing quite a lot of work on that, so I feel like the deck is being a little bit dramatic here, but it's true that I feel I've got more work to do, and if this is going to be a good time for it, great.

A year or so ago, I started doing daily card draws to get more comfortable with the tarot. Before getting ready in the morning, I shuffle my deck, draw a card, and look up its meaning. Throughout the day I try to focus on that particular card and look for its influence. For example, if I draw the 4 of Cups (which has been coming up for me a lot lately), I try to be a bit more social at work to counteract my tendency to withdraw. I keep track of what cards I draw and sometimes when I look back, I can see trends in the cards corresponding to what was happening in my life.

Do you read for yourself on a regular basis? What spreads do you use?
