Hello friends. Over on my Instagram I've been sharing little lunar tarot based horoscopes for folks. It was requested by a few that I put this up in a place that can be referenced without the limitations of the 2 hour time window of the fun stories feature on Instagram. So, here I am, and here we are. This gives a lot more room for expression and extrapolation.

FINDING TRUTH AND CLARITY THROUGH UNUSUAL PERSPECTIVE
Our collective response and need for this particular lunation is highlighted by the Hanged Man and the Ace of Swords. The Moon is naturally at home in the sign of Cancer and here we can see the stirrings of truths that come to light through having our world, or our perception of it, upended. Cancer is a sign of the home, the mother and nurturing. This new moon urges us inwards a bit and to nestle down and relax into places in ourselves that may cause emotional discomfort. It is from this place that we can gain an advantageous source of clarity, despite the fact it seems like the opposite.
The Hanged Man surrenders to their position, they relax into it. In this surrendering and trusting of ourselves, we will each come to a clarity around a matter in our lives around this lunar cycle. The Ace of Swords affirms the victory of this truth in store for us. Trust your process, be soft with yourself, witness your pains and treat them gently, as they will open the way to a greater understanding of yourself.
