New moons are a potent time to set new intentions and this new moon is also a great time to make a new commitment. What to commit to, you may be wondering. The person in the TWO of WANDS, from the Mythic tarot deck, is standing at a choice point considering how to proceed. S/he is being guided by the HIEROPHANT who can be seen in the background in the cave. You’re being asked to connect to your spirit and ask yourself, “Where do I feel alive and where do I feel my fire go out? Allow yourself to be guided intuitively to the answer. And when you have your answer, you’re ready to commit…or recommit!
