Lunar Intentions 2020 – November

According to folk-lore, the New Moon and waxing phases are fertile and wet. This is the best time to set intentions, start goals, and launch projects. Meanwhile the Full Moon and waning phases, the tide recedes and thus things dry up. So this is a good time to thin, weed out, and prune.

Another New Moon is upon us and now is the time to clarify our intentions and solidify our commitments for the lunar month ahead. With today’s reading we will explore the energies of the Four Pillars of Wellness and our current point in the Journey of Life. In doing so we can take the time to consider what we do and don’t want in our lives and set the appropriate intentions and goals towards what we desire.

Here is the spread for this New Moon’s reading.

Current Point on Life’s Path – Six of Swords

You are ready to move forward with something in your life.

The Six of Swords is about transitioning and travel, whether physical or metaphorical. It is the process of moving forward into something new. So this could be moving into a new home, moving into a new job or new position, moving into a new school, or recovering from something in life in such a way that you’re bouncing back now. In any case, whatever it is, this is forward movement.

Spiritual Needs – Ten of Cups

How does your soul define fulfillment?

Happiness is fleeting. Fulfillment is long-term. For example, you can still feel a sense of fulfillment even if you are not happy in a given moment.

So, at this time, deeply reflect upon what fulfillment means to you and what it looks like. Not how others define it. Not how the world around you defines it.

How does your soul define fulfillment? What does that look and feel like for you?

Whatever it is your soul defines as fulfillment, move towards that and stay on that path. Sure, you may shift and refine that definition over time as you evolve but it’s your definition. It’s no one else’s path to walk so no one else gets to define it.

Emotional Needs – Ten of Swords

Absolutely do rest when you need to, but don’t quit on yourself.

Release and let go whatever it is that’s been hurting and draining you. Every storm eventually passes. Dawn breaks every night. And each time you hit rock bottom the only place left to go is up. Absolutely do rest when you need to, but don’t quit on yourself.

As soon as you have rested up, get back up and resume your journey. Your story isn’t over and you’re the hero in it. There are still places to go, people to see, and so much to do. You have no idea of the amazing things out there waiting for you until you get there to experience it. But if you stay here, never go, or never try, then you will never know.

Fulfillment is possible. First you need to know what it means for you and then you need to align yourself with it. After that, you remove from your life anything that doesn’t support it. You start working for the things that do support your fulfillment.

Mental Needs – Six of Pentacles

Make sure your resources are in order so they can provide you with the freedom from worry that you need.

The Six of Pentacles represents the principle of Equivalent Exchange. Who has and who doesn’t have. The flow of resources.

Mentally, you need to know you are managing your resources properly in such a way that you have the freedom to meet all your needs and do what you want to do without fear or worry. If you don’t know how to manage your resources and get them in order, now is the time to do it. If you do, now is the time to make sure everything is in fact in order.

As said before, it is time to be moving forward and there is much to do involved with that. The last thing you want is to scramble and juggle resources to make this happen. What is desired is the ability to flow with grace and ease. Trading resources without fear or concern will facilitate this process.

It’s difficult to imagine fulfillment without including abundance. Why wouldn’t anyone desire the resources available to meet all of their needs? Keep in mind that the resources to achieve this isn’t solely money. Time, energy, skills, people, and other materials play a role in this too. So when we talk about resources, expand your thought processes beyond that of just money here.

If you don’t have a particular resource it is not the end of the world. The Six of Pentacles reminds us that the principle of Equivalent Exchange is ever present. It means whatever you have, someone else wants or needs and is willing to make an exchange for it of an equivalent value. You just have to find someone willing to exchange something that you need or want for what you have. That’s it. You work with what you’ve got to get what you need.

Physical Needs – The Wheel of Fortune

Remain on the look out for opportunities to care for and meet your physical needs.

Remain on the look out for opportunities to care for and meet your physical needs.

Self-care is just that. It’s taking care of yourself. It’s not some frivolous luxury. It’s doing what needs to be done in order for you to stay well and when you aren’t well, it’s getting yourself back to being well.

And here is the reality: the busier you are, the more you need to do it. Carve out the time every day to get that care done.

If you are not taking care of yourself, your journey forward in life will be more difficult than it needs to be. You may even halt your progress entirely until you’re well again. So make sure you use your opportunities for self-care wisely and appropriately.

It’s challenging to feel a sense of fulfillment if you are not feeling well. Make sure that taking care of yourself and being well is part of the support system to your path of fulfillment. What good is having what you desire if you are not able to enjoy it?

Whenever you are feeling down and out, take the opportunity to rest and recuperate before you attempt to recover and rebuild. This way you can bring your best self into it. Remember that even the worst turn of events will come to an end eventually and things will shift back into your favor.

Look for opportunities to shift or reorganize how you manage your time and energy specifically in terms of resources so that you can take care of yourself better. For example, if what you’re doing consistently drains you rather than uplifts you then perhaps it’s best to look at doing something else.
