30 Days of Working With the Moon: A spread for each day of the lunar cycle

Recommended Posts

INTRODUCTION

 

This collection of spreads can be used on any month of the year as they are not tied to certain astrological events. They are fairly general in nature but still work with the specific energies of every lunar day. I have assigned a certain theme for each day of the moons cycle. This is based on my personal experiences as well as on some traditions of thought. There are however many different ways to perceive lunar energies, so the concept I present here may or may not resonate with you. You are encouraged to tweak and adapt these spreads so that they best work for you. This is intended to inspire you and its not to be seen as the ultimate guide. You do not have to do the whole of 30 days. You are free to pick and choose, and all these spreads will also work well on their own (even in non-lunar contexts!). You could, for example, use them as tools for self exploration.

 

Why only three-card spreads? Well, I quite like the three-card format. It provides a lot of information without being too elaborate and time consuming. Plus, the number three holds special lunar connotations as it corresponds with the ‘maiden/mother/crone’ energies (New/waxing moon, full moon, waning/dark moon). There is no particular layout for these spreads, you are free to arrange it anyway you like.

 

Why these particular themes? They are not based on numerology (like you might be inclined to think), but by one of the many traditions around the correspondences of the moons cycles. I have interpreted these correspondences freely and intuitively.

 

In this collection you will find 30 spreads, plus 4 extra spreads (2 spreads for specific lunar events: A super moon and a lunar eclipse, and 2 general spreads for the waxing and the waning phase. These general spreads are intended to act as replacements in case there is a theme that you do not resonate with. But you can certainly also switch dates and do the spread that feels most pertinent to you at the given moment).

 

Every cycle starts on the New moon and finishes on the day before the next new moon.

Dear Raggydoll,  <3 <3

 

My life, as you know, is crazy, but I just received the Earthly Souls and Spirits deck, and I would like to give this a try, starting on May 4/5. It will really motivate me to read for myself.

 

This is an oracle deck. Not sure if it's a moon deck or a witchy deck, but I'm just unboxing it and thought this would be a lovely thing to do with it. Now, I have no more excuse when it comes to participating in lunar readings.

 

Terry Foss is so sweet. She included two of her calling cards, a Stach Chai Spice tea bag and a fun size packet of M&M's, and a beautiful 7 x 5" postcard of her work.

 

Just took the cards out of the cotton pouch... . They are beyond gorgeous!!!!!!!!!! Years back, I was into making velvet and satin pouches for my cards and have just found one of them. It is ideal and fits these big cards perfectly.

 

 

Just drew one of the deck's cards inquiring about my starting on this journey and

Energy showed up.

 

I see it as something very positive, since I am encouraged to seek protection from the natural elements and, thus, encouraged to see, also, what the moon counsels me through your wonderful spreads.
