Dark Moon Magic Tarot or Oracle Spread

Dark Moon Magic Tarot Spread

The dark moon is that potent powerful time just before the new moon pops in with it's slither of light.

Many people start working with the new moon when it's technically still the dark moon, but like I always say, go with what works for you and your own magic.

I personally like to honour the darkness before the light returns.

I use this time to go inward, to pop into the depths of my soul and see what's occurring before moving into the magic of manifesting and co-creation with my bezzie the new moon!

You can use this spread with tarot, oracle or whatever cards you have lying around. You can use it as part of your dark moon ritual or anytime that you are trying to navigate through the darkness.

 

1. Message from the subconscious

This card will help you tap into what it is that has not yet fully come to the surface but would like your attention at this time.



2. What lessons are integrating

The dark moon is a nice time to just let all you've learned over the last moon cycle sink in, here you'll get some info about what those lessons are.



3. How to find peace in the darkness

Sometimes the darkness can be a little challenging to navigate. This card will give you some insight into how you can find some peace and relax into this part of the moon cycle.



4. What the dark moon is incubating

It may look like not a lot is happening during the dark moon but there is always something happening under the surface.



5. Your guide through the dark moon

This card will show you who/what is guiding you through this moon phase and into the next.

New Moon Magic - 33 ways to work with the energy of the new moon

New Moon Magic

New moon energy is powerful shiz!

I like working with the Full Moon for releasing, exploring my stuff, doing some deep work and big magic. On the New Moon though, I’m more about taking stock, setting goals and putting it out there.

Everyone works with moon energy differently, so it's really important for you to find what works best for you.

I'm just sharing with you here some of the stuff that works for me. 

Personally, I always wait until after the New Moon has hit before I start using it’s magic (although I start to think about my intentions earlier!), as I feel that it’s much more powerful.

I go with the three days after rule that says you can work with the new moon energy for up to three days after the moon is new. 

So if I miss the new moon, I don’t freak out, I just do my new moon-y stuff the next day. :D But you can work with the New Moon however it feels best to you.

There's no reason at all why you can't use this list anytime you're wanting to call something in.

If you want to come and partake in some New Moon Magic with other peeps, head over to the Spiritual Journey Pitstop on Facebook where every new and full moon we get together and give each other’s magic a mega boost of love and light!

OK, let’s get into this listicle!

#Caturday cat cards - Eight of Wands

10622771_693352757412119_4922404642821616687_n I don't know about you guys, but sometimes I feel like I'm working so damn hard. Thinking, planning, working on projects, blogs, writing novels, just like doing stuff in the hopes that one day I'll find some kind of success in something and make a difference to the world!

So a lot of the time I'm looking at the computer screen, or at my feet feeling dejected about the fourth rejection in my inbox from a literary agent (OK, so that's still way less than J.K Rowling), or I'm bummed out watching the Almighty Johnsons (please watch this show, it's amazing!!) because only like one person looked at my blog yesterday even though I spent ages typing up what I thought was a killer post!

But the Eight of Wands reminds us this #Caturday that just because we can't see the movement doesn't mean things aren't happening for us. Maybe my agent hasn't joined the agency yet. Maybe there are lessons to learn and blocks to bust before I can experience what society tells me is this thing called 'success'.

Maybe if we all just stopped feeling so glum about nothing happening we could look up from our falling apart leopard print Converse sneakers and see that things are happening around us all the time in the cosmic web of life we all weave and none of us can see it all! There is so much going on right now that affects us that we are so completely unaware of. Like right now someone somewhere might be packing up the ready meal that you are going to eat next week and you'll probably never even think about them...

So today let's take a breath and remember that so much good stuff is happening around you all the time even when you are feeling totally bummed, and you can never feel too totally bummed if you go look at some clouds.

Love, light and flying wands! <3
