Scorpio SUPER Full Moon is upon us!
What the heck does that mean?
One of my friends and fave resources @Daniellemercurio tells it like this:
“Scorpio is our alchemist and has the ability to transform the energy & dynamics of your life in an instant if you so choose... it wears such heavy armor to protect its heart, yet realize that doesn’t mean it must hide trapped your whole life, yet shine from a space of trust, flow & wholeness.
…With the Super Moon illuminating even closer to us, you may feel the call to also shed the ways you’ve been a doormat & manipulated your experience to fit in and instead believe in your natural charisma and the magic that happens when you show up in your own unique, unconventional and beautiful ways.”
With that, let’s get into today’s reading.

I’ll be using two decks today, so there’s always a chance of getting the same card twice! The first card is an energetic pattern to move away from at this time, and the second card is a suggestion of energy to embrace.
Which pile draws you in the most? Or maybe begin with the one that you don’t feel. There’s typically a reaction you can tune into either way. Breath. Listen, then choose.
The crystals & stones:
1- Tumbled Apatite: speaking clearly and honestly, communicating✨throat chakra
2-Larimar: healing and calming; facilitates inner wisdom and outer manifestation ✨heart, throat, third eye, and crown chakras
3-Garnierite: soothing, grounding, strength during turmoil✨heart chakra

Strength & The Devil
These Major arcana cards suggest that you’re dealing with energy in your life that is not ephemeral, but instead, recurring and steady. Perhaps it’s a part of your practiced vibration, or it’s something that you keep activating but not transforming.
When you pay attention to things in life that are unwanted, you give them more power. By giving something your attention, it strengthens it. These cards together suggest that you’re dwelling on something, telling the same worn-out story over and over, and thus, making your problem/concern/focus, bigger.
It works both ways, though.
By giving your attention to high vibe, pleasing scenarios, you shift your vibe higher—and farther away from what is unwanted. This doesn’t mean you’re ignoring it. But it does mean that you’re not able to get trapped in a self-made mind loop of “what-ifs”.
This is a tricky thing to learn. It’s a practice. Why?
Because it’s natural to try to use your strength and determination to change an unwanted thing. But rowing upstream is never the answer. However counterintuitive it may seem, now is the time to turn your boat around—and your attention away from what’s unwanted—and float downstream.
This may prove especially challenging if you’re used to controlling things in your life.
Let’s say you find yourself in a thought loop about something you’re worried about. You play out different scenarios, maybe even assume what others are thinking. When you catch yourself in this space, acknowledge it then turn your attention toward what is wanted. Feel into the ideal outcome, if only for a few seconds. Practice feeling more high vibe.
Make a cup of tea. Listen to your favorite song. Hit the reset button.
By practicing a higher vibration, new answers & possibilities will reveal themselves to you. Things that are impossible to perceive when you’re locked in low-vibe patterns.
Rinse & repeat…
Seven of Pentacles reversed & Eight of Swords
You have something you’re stuck on. Energetically, the combination of negative self-talk, old patterns of low-vibe rhetoric, and the mind loop of negativity are especially strong for you right now.
These cards together suggest that you’ve fallen off the path a bit. You want something, most likely an achievement or financially rooted thing: job stability, more income, better employees, something in this space. You know what it is.
The problem is that you’re not aware that your practiced negative thoughts (we all have them) are keeping you from seeing the many ways to get there.
This spread is about getting out of your head about things.
First, what is it that you want? Can your articulate it? Write it down in as much detail as possible.
Now that what you want is intellectually available to you, try to move into your heart space by feeling what it’s like to achieve this goal.
How does it feel? What kind of person do you need to show up as in order to be the hero in this dream?
These cards are a reminder that our thoughts are the most powerful tool we have. They trigger our emotions, we—all humans—act on emotions, and thus, our thoughts become the reality we create.
If you’re not happy with the way things are going, look no further than your own patterns of thinking. That is always the key.
Knight of Wands reversed & Ace of Swords
Ooh, this is powerful creation energy! You are onto something.
This beautiful combination carries with it so many possibilities for you, and soon. But there’s a catch:
You’re in your own way a little bit.
The Ace of Swords suggests that you are in a space of finding some real clarity about some important things in your life. It is the energy of new ideas, and it is yours if you allow it.
But the reversed Knight is here to remind you that even though new and exciting things are just beyond your reach, it’s your own scattered, hasty energy that’s keeping you out of flow.
Are you trying to do too much? Are you overthinking something to death? The Knight has the power to move all of your creative energy forward and the Ace is there as a beacon of clarity to show you the way.
But you have to release the outcome and trust. This is how you find your way back on your path.
What does that look like?
Don’t force things. If it feels like pushing a boulder up a mountain, leave it alone. Do something that feels better. Come back to it later.
Don’t stretch yourself too thin. If you’re taking on too much at once, your energy will be fragmented and unfocused and it will take forever to get to where you want to go.
In other words, chill out. The path is clear and ready and right before you. You don’t need to push against anything for this to work. In fact, quite the opposite.
Take a walk. Take a nap. Pet your cat. That’s it. You’ll see.
