Secrets of the Moon Spread

On This Day

Scientists believe the moon was once part of Earth, and it was formed when a Mars-sized object crashed into the earth 4.5 billion years ago.

Today is the Roman festival of Luna according to Ovid, who describes this ritual worship on Aventine Hill in Rome. Luna, the Roman divine embodiment of the moon, is represented as the female complement to the sun.

Summation of Spread

The Moon card is evocative of the perceived dangers of the unconscious. The sun broadly shines while the moon remains elusive, ever changing, and mysterious. The crawfish crawling out of the pool appears to be under the moon’s spell. Something surprising is brought to the surface. You learn and confront something new about yourself.

The moon is associated with magic, the psychic, and the feminine. Transformations evolve during her cycles and lunar events. All these lunar aspects inspire the spread’s questions.

Cast Your Cards

Feel her glow and cast cards during the waxing moon. It is a time of magnetism and of attracting good things into your life:

1. New: What is possible?

2. Waxing: What am I drawing to me?

3. Full: Where does my power lie?

4. Waning: What do I need to shed?

5. Lunar Eclipse: What darkens my mood?

6. Dark Side of the Moon: What lurks within my hidden side?

7. Tidal Pull: In what area of life do I have the greatest effect?

8. What is now possible?
