Tomorrow’s Full Moon is the Pathfinding Horse Moon. With the moon in Sagittarius, it is a time to choose a new path or direction to take in our life’s journey.
How do we do this? Well, you look at where you are and where you really want to be then you have to decide how to get there. Simple, right? I’m a Libra so I would have to say this is pure torture. Trying to make a decision on which path I should take is an extremely difficult task for a Libra. I will use my trusty Pros and Cons lists. I will think of all the different possible outcomes for each decision. I will ask my friends and family for advice. I will go see a psychic or ask my own Goddess or Angel cards. Then I will pray for a sign from the Universe, guiding me toward the right path. Then I will finally make a decision. But once I make that decision, I will constantly wonder if I made the right choice. But once again, I am a Libra.
Ironically, I am in a weird place where I do feel like I have to make a lot of life choices about my future. So today, I turned to someone I know and trust, Hot Dog. I had just told him about my accident a few days ago so he was anxious to see me and get me whatever I needed. He picked up dinner at my favorite Mexican restaurant and arrived at my house, ready to take care of my needs. What I really needed was someone to talk to and he was ready to listen. We went for a walk in my neighborhood (mainly to walk off the carnitas) and talked about what was bothering me. Like any close, good guy friend would do, he poked fun at some of the decisions I made and actions I took. But mostly he was in agreement with me that I needed to change things in my life.
I know where I want to be I just have no clue how to get there. I need to let go of the past once and for all. My past is holding me back. So I guess whatever direction I wind up choosing, I need to make sure that it is in the opposite direction of my past with the future I want directly in front of me.
Now, if you are like me and you have a hard time making decisions, Kristen Madden from Llewellyn’s Witches’ Datebook suggests:
“To explore your path and any new directions you might take, you will need a pendulum (a ring on a string will do), and your life-adventure map. Create your map by drawing a large circle on a piece of paper. divide the circle into a pie graph, with one section representing your current path. Into the other sections, place your potential paths, hopes and dreams. Take your pendulum and ask what paths are most aligned to financial, academic, spiritual, or emotional success, then let the pendulum help find your direction.”
Now if the pendulums, tarot cards and psychic guidance methods freak you out, you can always ask the Magic 8 ball. I have a fortune telling Yoda doll that I often ask for guidance (yeah, I’m a Star Wars geek) when my Magic 8 ball seems to be having issues (when it tells you “Future Unclear. Ask Again Later.”)
