Full Moon Tarot

This full moon feels particularly potent this time around. I’m not usually one to look into astrology and the like, but for some reason this time it resonates more with me!

So, as it is so potent, I felt the need to draw a tarot card for the energies surrounding at this time. What exactly is going on anyway?

I drew the card from my Rider-Waite deck before looking up the meaning behind or astrology drive behind this moon. Many people like to take stock of or use things like Mercury retrograde as an excuse for poor behaviour. After all, you can’t punish a planet, right?

From astrology’s point of view, this full moon is supposed to be affecting all kinds of relationships in your life. The need for love or affection will grow stronger, but alongside this, the feelings of jealousy or anger/intimidation are also likely to grow. I guess even if you don’t believe in this (like myself) you can still have the knowledge that you have been forewarned. I suppose it’s nice to be able to reflect on what is going on and step back, rather than let things fly out of control.

With this alignment of planets, etc, it may make those of us in relationships moodier, quicker to jump into arguments or fights. It may also have an effect on those who are single – you may feel like lowering your standards just so you are not alone. However, if you are in a healthy relationship, this can actually help to bring any frustrations to the surface and enable you to resolve them now rather than letting them simmer below the surface.

So what did the tarot cards say?

6 of Cups, upright, from the Rider-Waite Tarot Deck

The card which appeared for this reading was the 6 of Cups in an upright position. This card takes you back to the happy memories of when you were younger. The connections you made there are ones which bring you joy and happiness.

This card showing up is interesting, based on what I have found out from astrology related to this full moon. This card is based around relationships, as is the moon this time around. So this card showing up, which indicates that there is an increased level of harmony at your disposal, is fitting. It’s showing that with a little patience, the issues which may arise can be handled with ease. Giving and receiving is in full flow, and you are willing to give each other the benefit of the doubt – after all, everyone has their off days.

This card encourages you to give into your playful side. Be childish. Do the things that make you happy. Play the games you used to. Visit the old haunts of your childhood or teenage years with the same people once again. Embrace living life to the full.

It can indicate children coming into your life too. Perhaps you or someone close to you is yet to find out they are expecting a child (or two! This can indicate twins!). It may also be showing you that you may soon be spending more time with children. Maybe now is the time to embark upon becoming a teacher or a nursery assistant. Children are open-minded, curious and usually have some kind of outlook to life we can all learn from. Keep an open mind, keep moving forward and enjoy the little things!

Sunday Spread 28.04.2019

This week’s tarot cards are from the fantastic Zombie Tarot deck. You can get these cards from many retailers, both online and offline. They add a bit of retro fun to a spread, as they feature an ever growing zombie outbreak in the face of the apocalypse. What better weapon to have against the undead hordes than a pack of tarot cards, featuring a box which looks like an old ammunition box?

So, onto this week’s ‘chosen three’ cards. You can see the image below of the cards. See which one resonates with you, and then be sure to read on for the reveal!

These are the three cards from the Zombie Tarot. Once again, we seem to have a tie between the most chosen cards. So we will take them in numerical order as to the most popular. The two most chosen cards are number one and number two. Number three is a close contender, but there is a difference, thankfully.

So, we shall begin with revealing card number one below.


Number One – Five of Cups

Card Number One: The Five of Cups

This card is commonly seen when things have not gone your way, or if all seems lost at the moment. It could be the culmination of things not working out as you wished they had, or simply the loss of a great idea.

Focus now on what went wrong – but do not spend too long grieving this lost aspect, as the world will move along without you in it.

You may be stuck in the past, unable to move on, or simply let go. No one is suggesting you forget – just to let go and live. Learn from the mistakes, learn from what didn’t work out.

Remember to live in the present and not allow the past to drag you down.

Things are waiting for you; new, shiny things. But only once you have accepted what has happened and made steps to move on in life will you reap those rewards. Blessings may be hidden in disguise, but you are too caught up in your own sadness and grief to notice new opportunities.


The next card which was most popular is card number two.

Number Two – Six of Swords

Card Number Two: Six of Swords

Transition is afoot. It could be a rite of passage or a release of baggage from past dealings. Change is not to be feared, and this has long been in the works. You may be moving house, changing your job, or you may be moving country. You are leaving what was seen and considered as familiar and taking a step (or leap!) into the as yet unknown.

It may bring you sadness to take this much-needed step into the unknown and into new territories. However, you know in your heart of hearts that this is the right path on which you need to follow.

Stepping away from things which no longer serve you – be it a relationship, job, house or country – will benefit you in the long run. A lot of the time, we are sentimental beings, and we tend to choose to hold on to those things which may not actually serve us. However, a change is as good as a rest, and things will settle down once more.

It can be easy to dwell on things which once anchored you as you move into your new life. This card gives you permission or instruction to move forward without looking backwards. You made those choices because they needed to be made. Holding onto the past is not going to do anyone any good, especially you.

There is, however, nothing wrong with taking the time to reflect on what has come to pass. Events in our lives make us who we are. Taking the time to reflect and in turn let go of these feelings and aspects will help clear the way for new things to become settled and certain.

Through this inner reflection, decide what you want to hold onto in your new life moving forward. Do not take what no longer serves you, mentally or physically.


The final card is number three.

Number Three – Seven of Swords

Card Number Three: Seven of Swords

This is a card which symbolises some form of deception or trickery is afoot. It may be that you are sneaking around, doing things which you perhaps shouldn’t, whilst hoping beyond hope that these things do not see the light of day.

It’s also a possibility that you are the one being manipulated. You could be dancing to the tune of someone else’s beat, so to speak.

It is a very difficult game to play if you are deceiving others. If you are especially unlucky, it may be that you will be caught in the act, and your true self will be revealed.

You may be on the receiving end of this deception, trusting someone who you think is genuine and honest, but being stabbed in the back when you are not looking. This could be through any number of things – infidelity in a relationship, or just someone trying to gain and hold the upper hand in a situation of power.

The main thing to remember with this one is to listen to your gut. If something or someone seems too good to be true, then those things likely are. Instinct is a very strong tool, and this card is telling you to start using it.

It can also be symbolic of being able to use the ‘backdoor’ to get results that you want. Perhaps you are able to take a shortcut in whatever you are doing in order to get what you need, without going down the traditional routes.

You also need to keep an eye on any potential workloads. We can only do so much as humans, and the more we take on, the worse the end results are likely to be. If you have ‘bitten off more than you can chew’, as the saying goes, you may not be able to focus fully on the tasks you need to get done, and instead end up worrying about them.

This card can also be related to procrastination. Are you putting things off that you really should be getting on with? Are there tasks or assignments you should be doing, but the cleaning or watching a movie seems that bit more important at this moment in time? Cut the crap and get on with what you should be doing. You’ll thank yourself later!

So which card did you resonate with? Let us know how your week goes in relation to this!

This week’s Tarot: 15.04.2019

As we lead up to the Easter weekend, let’s see what we have in store! Please do let me know if these spreads are helpful for you – I really do enjoy doing them.

So let’s get on with this week’s cards.

First, you will need to focus on the cards, and let your intuition guide you to the one which is relevant for you this week.

Here are the three cards. Focus, see which one feels most relevant to you. Further down in the article we will be discussing each card in turn and what it can mean or imply.

There are many tarot spreads available for you to choose from, and many decks nowadays have their own spreads they have created based around their theme.

This deck is simply the Rider Waite deck, which many people will know or have seen. This is a more simplistic set, which is great when you are starting to learn tarot. I started with a highly decorated set, and it was very difficult to start learning with!

So if you have chosen your card, let’s get onto the reveal and what they mean!

This week’s most popular card was extremely close. Just one point separated number one from number three. However, number three was the most popular with the most points.


Number Three

The Lovers, card number 6 in the major arcana

The Lovers – harmony, relationships, love, choices

The Lovers is a card with the base meaning of some kind of connection between people, and communication. This card may appear when you have found your soul mate or a life partner. It’s not only restricted to romantic relationships, however, as this can also signify other relationships like friendship and family. Symbolising raw honesty through the nakedness of the man and woman depicted on the card, this is a time to get back down to the core and be honest with yourself and with others. This can also be read as having found someone you can be your true, naked self around with no shame or misunderstandings.

The direction this card goes can be related to honesty, being true to yourself and situations which may arise, as well as being honest with others. It’s figuring out what you want from a situation or from life in general. It’s a cue to be more authentic and real in situations – you no longer need the mask.

At the very root of the card, this signifies a choice. It could be a choice in your love life, or perhaps a choice as to what you want to be in your career or where to live your life. It’s often a sign that you’re facing a moral dilemma and you must consider all consequences before making a decision or acting.

It can also signify that you are unifying dual forces. Pulling things together in a unified way. So looking at this as a weekly forecast, I would say the best thing to do is to really look at who is closest to you, put your heads together and overcome whatever it is that is challenging you, either individually or as a collective.


Number One

The Queen of Cups Tarot Card from the Rider Waite set

Queen of Cups – emotionally stable, compassionate, intuitive, in tune

The Queen of Cups is a very beautiful card indeed. She’s sitting right next to the sea, and the element of water which is also related to emotions. She has a cup in her hands, but this one is closed compared to many others in the deck which are open or flowing. This shows that she uses her inner wisdom and feelings as judges of situations.

She is connected to her emotions, but as her feet are resting on the shore, she is not overwhelmed by them. She is in control of her feelings and emotions and is very calm and serene.

This week may be a week to embody the queen of cups and use your empathy to listen to what others have to say. There may be someone close to you who needs an ear to listen or even a shoulder to cry on, and it is important that you can offer that to them. Being able to read and understand situations around you is a virtue gifted by this queen. You may well already be a healer or some kind of therapist – or just a great friend who allows people the space to express themselves freely. It also may be a time to listen to your ‘inner voice’ in regards to what is going on in your life.


Number Two

Four of Wands card from the Rider Waite Tarot Set

Four of Wands – joy, harmony, celebration, a homecoming

This is a card with so many positive attributes. It can signify success on something you are working towards, it can be a homecoming of sorts, whether physical or metaphorical, it is a celebration of all that has led to this point.

You may be returning home to the people or places you feel most comfortable with. It could be the completion of a renovation you have done on your home or just the feeling of having found your own habitat – where you thrive and you are doing so well. This card is very much focused on the home environment and taking a pause to see just how far you’ve come.

If you have been working on a project, it may be that you are about to hit a key milestone along the way. If you are almost finished with a project, this can signify that the project was completed successfully. Now is the time for celebration and joy! It is so important that we measure our success and sit back and look at what we have achieved – and this card prompts you to do just that.

Rest after a long project is so important, especially if the whole task is not complete yet! Storming ahead and carrying on after shouldering a large responsibility can be a grave mistake. Recognising our achievements and celebrating with those we love is important and a vital part of human life.


Overall, the energies of this week are focused very much on being in tune with ourselves and our relationships, celebrating our achievements and working together to attain goals. That does not sound like the worst week at all!
