Before the solar eclipse on Monday, I spent a lot of time getting ready. I felt the energies heavy and wanted to step into the energy feeling renewed and cleansed. I saged myself, cleansed my aura and played my sound bowl. But something called me to my tarot cards, so I pulled for a reading. I used the tarot spread from the Solar Eclipse and Leo New Moon Ritual by The Sacred School of Gypsy Arts. I like using the spreads from this magickal creator, as well as her artwork to embellish my notebooks and research. This spread is all about the new energies and transformations that will occur over the next 6 months and beyond of this solar eclipse.
This eclipse was unsurprisingly very popular, as it was the first one to cross from coast to coast in the United States in about 100 years. For me, though, this eclipse was super important. I was born during a solar eclipse and had never seen one before, so I was greatly attracted to it.
On to the spread! I used the Shrine of the Black Medusa tarot deck for this reading. Prior to this reading, I hadn’t realized it was a Thoth deck, which was a great surprise. I had been wanting a Thoth deck for some time now… Go figure.
