Many people scoff at the idea that the moon can affect our behaviour. Science, however, has proven that celestial objects do in fact influence our physiology, like feeling sleepy or awake. Often, during the day we are full of energy, which is the time we work or play but once night falls, we feel tired and sleepy.
Even the Earth’s atmosphere, magnetic field, and water tides are influenced by the moon. Incidentally, if you’re using tarot to set goals or intentions, you can use this to your own advantage:
The New Moon signals the start of the lunar cycle. Tarot readings will often recommend making plans and setting goals under this phase. If you want to start a new job or projects, this is the ideal time to make preparations. The new moon will bring optimism and energise you. If you’re starting a new relationship, now is your time to plan the first date.
It doesn’t matter how many goals you have. You need to start writing and listing them down. Afterwards, read those intentions aloud and then burn them on a candle flame. Take care when doing so, before putting the ashes under running water or bury them in the ground.
Crescent Moon First Quarter
While the moon grows bigger, so should your intentions. Also, this is often the period where the tarot will recommend taking actions. So choose and focus on one specific intention. Write it down again and put it in a place that you’ll always see, like a mirror or desk. Make sure to read it aloud at least once every day.
Reading it aloud serves as a reminder and provides encouragement to work on your dreams. While the moon lends a helping hand, you have to do your part to make it happen. So each day, take action, however small it may be, in order to get a step closer to your goals.
By now, the moon is now halfway in its phase, forming a 90-degree angle with the sun. In astrology, this means that some tension is building up. As you start taking action, you may encounter some hurdles in your way. If so, tarot readings can provide better insight into your current situation.
Once the tarot reveals those troubling obstructions, you may start writing a journal about your goals or dreams. As you write and review the progress, you may uncover feelings of doubt, which is probably why your desires are not manifesting. You can overcome this, however, by declaring in writing that your life is flowing with hope and opportunity.
The Full Moon is going to appear over the next few days. You’re getting excited as things start aligning with your goals. Take one big step towards your dream and tell the universe that your desire is strong. Step out of your comfort zone. You’re now ready to ask for that promotion or return to study and accomplish your dream course. Following your heart is daunting, but every step moves you closer to achieving your dreams.
The sun is directing its light straight at the moon. You can feel the magic in the air. It’s now time to make things happen. Celebrate your achievement by dancing, singing, or even by just gazing at the moon. Congratulate yourself on the progress you’ve made so far. Also, tarot readings can provide better insight during a full moon. So consider getting one during this period.
Waning Gibbous / Disseminating Moon
As the moon begins to wane, take stock of what’s happening in your life. Perhaps you have attitudes, beliefs, vices or habits that you wish to leave behind. What do you want to achieve in life? If you’re not sure, consult the tarot and find out what negative things you need to discard. You could also meditate. Sit or lie down and focus on your breathing. Clear your mind, visualise meeting that goal and what life looks like after achieving your dreams. To remove all those pent-up emotions, you could simply have a good cry or write them down.
As the last quarter arrives, was there some event that was specifically negative? Do you still have any beliefs, bad habits or memories you would like to leave behind? If there are, there is still time to take action. Just send signals to the universe that you want to get rid of all those negative things.
Waning Crescent / Balsamic Moon
You’re now almost at the start of another new moon where another cycle is about to begin. Look back at the previous weeks and your progress so far. What have you:
- Learned or added?
- Let go of?
- Still left to finish?
Review your list of intentions and insights from the tarot reading. Check the status of your goals. Did you achieve all of them? If not why haven’t you? After discovering the reason why, you can now burn, bury or throw the old list away. Start a new list. Consider adjusting your unrealised goals to make sure that you get it right this time.
Psychics consider this period as a time for resting and recharging one’s spirits. Take the opportunity to have a night out or maybe just sleep a bit longer.
You can also spend this time meditating by sitting quietly and contemplating problems that worry you. Use this moment to harness the moon’s energy and inner wisdom when dealing with your problems and issues.
Hopefully this has helped to explain the importance of the moon on our moods and behaviour, and the power it has to influence events in our lives. Be aware of the changing phases of moon, and consider them as a time to plan, take action, and accomplish your life goals. Also, be sure to rely on the tarot cards as they will serve as your guide to bring your dreams and desires alive.
