About the Number 3
Today’s Tarot Card for Everyone:
This Tarot Deck: Spiral
Following your desires can really get your adrenaline pumping, but things can become more complicated than you bargain for now. You must be cautious when expressing your needs today because it can be difficult to stop once you stir up some excitement. Although you can talk yourself into risky behavior, it might not be such a good idea. Believe it or not, sometimes your feelings should be kept to yourself.
You may be overcommitted in a relationship now, making you feel as if you won’t be able to deliver on what you promised. You are normally able to manage your time and resources without difficulty, but today you should be extra careful with your assumptions. You might not even notice that you have taken on too much until it’s too late to change your course. Nonetheless, you would still be wise to reconsider your plans and reset your goals once you realize that you made a mistake.
Your daily regimen has a significant effect on your overall health, and today’s stress makes you stop and consider how to make things better. It’s not wise to turn your life upside down all at once. However, you can make a small improvement by doing something that builds your strength and rejuvenates you without making your day any more chaotic. Even a slight upgrade to your current exercise program or a minor modification to your diet could be sufficient to increase your feelings of well-being.
You could take a relationship too seriously now and try to transform a casual friendship into a full-blown romance. It seems as if it would be easier to lighten the emotional weight, but the Full Moon’s presence in your 5th House of Romance may mean that your feelings are beyond your conscious control. Don’t try to redirect what is in your heart; just let the currents carry you along for the ride. Remember, it’s prudent to observe your changing desires without impulsively acting on every one.
You may be misled by a close friend or family member who is very convincing today. It isn’t that you’re gullible, but you do tend to trust others if they appear to know what they are doing. Exercise extra caution by investigating more than usual before making any promises you’ll later regret. Withholding your strongest desires might be your best move until you can tell what’s really going on.
You could have a really great idea today that sweeps you away with your own grandiose thinking. You might attempt to keep everything in a practical perspective, but your point of view is bent out of shape by your belief in your own story. Thankfully, you’re able to minimize any problems that arise from inflating a sensible strategy into an overextended one. Wait until next week to finalize your plans.
Today’s Full Moon in your 2nd House of Resources indicates that you might need to be extra careful about spending money on discretionary activities. You may agree to a purchase prior to thinking through the real costs. If you’re unsure of what to do, get advice from a trustworthy friend or a financial expert. Thankfully, involving someone else in your decision-making process will bring clarity as to whether or not you can really afford satisfying your desires now.
The Full Moon in passionate Scorpio emphasizes the urgency of your feelings. It may seem as if time has run out, making you aware of how much work you have on your plate today. You might have to postpone your previously scheduled escape to finish a project that’s on a very tight schedule. You would be wise now to acknowledge your frustration and delay the fun, rather than turning a difficult deadline into an impossible one.
Your schedule may be totally booked, yet you’re still able to turn your work into fun. However, it probably won’t unfold the way you planned it. Your temporary lack of judgment encourages you to get involved in one too many projects now. Ultimately, it’s less stressful for you and certainly more considerate of everyone else if you set sensible limits before making any more promises you can’t keep.
You may be overloaded with commitments because today’s Scorpio Full Moon illuminates your 11th House of Social Networking. You want to be more involved with others, even if you don’t have enough time for yourself. But avoiding your responsibilities won’t solve anything. Delaying the inevitable just makes you even more nervous. If possible, take a little time off for some play, but not at the expense of fulfilling your obligations.
You want others to acknowledge your wisdom by coming to you for advice, and you might even feel hurt if they ask someone else for help first. However, your motives may not be completely clear today. You could be more interested in being distracted from your own problems now than you are in solving anyone else’s predicaments. Fortunately, you can still be of assistance to those you love, no matter what your reasons are at this time.
Today’s Full Moon in your 9th House of Higher Education may indicate your need to make an important decision about going back to school. If you have been dreaming about furthering your studies, this is your chance to pursue something completely different from your current interests. Unfortunately, you must think about the unrealistic side of your dreams. But rather than setting your plans aside, try modifying them to align more closely with reality. Bringing your vision down to earth makes it simpler to manifest.
The hungry Scorpio Moon faces off with the contented Sun in Taurus, causing us to reconsider our goals and the effort required to fulfill them. The psychological depth of this lunar placement tunes us in to the deepest levels of our feelings. This connection is very helpful for those willing to explore an emotional underground where unconscious fears and desires are often buried. Awareness of what we’re missing can either motivate us to invest more to fulfill our needs or lead some to give up in despair. This Full Moon presents a stark contrast between safety and danger, pacification and passion, illuminating the underlying values that drive much of our behavior.
