Full moon tonight.
A friend had a question about whether or not she was on the right career path, so I used the tarot spread below to look at the energies that were waxing and waning in her life, going back two weeks to the last new moon, and looking forward two weeks to the next.
I originally came across this spread as a ‘dark moon’ tarot spread (more about that here) but it seemed perfect for today’s question and lunar moment.
This isn’t about being super proactive – the full moon is a time for reflection, rather than starting new things.
The new moon, where all we see in the night sky is a blank canvas ready to wax…that is the time for beginnings, plannings, new starts and proactivity. So this spread is for the ‘interim report’, half way between one new moon and the next.

Lay the cards out like this:
1. Things to let go of
2. Things to keep
3. Things yet to come
4. How the world affects you
5. What to give
6. What to receive
7. What to learn
Did you try this out for yourself? Let me know how you get on!
I’m a 30-something writer, artist, tarot reader, and perpetual explorer of the space between thought, feeling, and action.
I believe that spirituality and ritual are for everybody. I’m about the journey, in all of its messy, non-linear, chaotic iterations. I am excited by anticapitalist business and living with my whole entire self present. I use tarot cards to bring forth hidden truth, and ritual to affirm my commitment, over and over, to my ever-shifting path.
