Anyway yesterday, of course, was the Full Moon, so my Moonboard took precedence, but what I did do was this Tarot spread after I made my board.

While I've only been learning Tarot a few weeks, I've already found I really like Ethony's spreads - they are clear and simple, and perfect for a beginner like moi :)
And these are the cards I drew...
1. The Star
2. 3 of Swords
4. 10 of Wands
Now, as a novice some interpretations seem obvious, others less so.
Clearly, What I know is that the world is a magickal, beautiful place when we have eyes to see it. While it's a cliche, it's no less true - the darkest night is when the stars shine brightest :)
But, What is hidden is harder for me to read as I'm less conversant with the Minor arcana... The Swords indicate pain, hardship, but I'm less sure what the 3s represent.
When I drew the Where to focus card, I laughed out loud - 'Tell me something I don't know!' I said. I had already put a Temperance card on my Full Moon dreamboard as it clearly wanted to be included! I've certainly got the message of where I need to focus loud and clear :)
This part of Ethony spread confused me a little... As a person who endeavours to live authentically, I try and minimize any illusions, so What illusion do I need to drop?? I certainly don't feel burdened in any way - if anything, I feel under-utilized, I miss the pressure of the freelance work I used to do. So again, what illusion do I need to drop?? I confess I'm confused :/
So if any skilled readers can help me out, I'd certainly appreciate their insights!
