In Tiny Tarot Wisdom for Spoonies, I’ll be going through every card individually and sharing mini insights we as disabled and neurodivergent (ND) witches can take from it.
The Moon draws us out into the crisp night air and encourages us to explore familiar paths under the shroud of darkness. Dancing with the unknown is not new for spoonies, of course–our bodies and minds are more variable than our abled and neurotypical counterparts, after all. It can be hard to know when something will send us into sensory overload, or when our brains will just give up on forming words for a bit, or when we should push ourselves vs. when to rest and recover. That uncertainty is something we must learn to live with as best we can.
When the Moon appears in your readings, take stock of what is known and what is unknown as a spoonie. You may know with reasonable confidence that walking for more than 30 minutes in a day will send you into a tailspin of exhaustion. Or you may have no idea yet what constitutes overdoing it for your body/mind. You may have a solid idea of what activities help you regulate and re-center. Or you may just be learning how best to take care of yourself during overwhelm. That’s all useful information to have! What do you know about your disability, neurodivergence, or chronic illness? What don’t you know that you want to find out? And what is a true unknown that you may never find answers for?
