Waxing Gibbous

The waxing gibbous is when the moon is between half-lit at the first quarter, and fully lit at the full moon.

This is traditionally when I do the Consider the Details spread from the Luminous Spirit Tarot app.

Reading after Litha, for the intention FLOURISH

The cards are read from the center, then top to bottom and left to right, and the cards pulled represent:

  1. The Problem. What blocks you from the completion of your intention? What is there left to solve?
  2. What You Expected. What did you initially think would be the outcome of undertaking your intention?
  3. What You Got. How is your quest actually coming along? What is the current status of your manifestation?
  4. Your Weakness. What aspect of yourself makes it the most difficult for you to overcome the current status quo?
  5. Your Strength. What aspect of yourself gives you the strength to overcome the current status quo and complete your intention?

Last Quarter

The Last Quarter occurs after the Waning Gibbous. The moon is getting darker, and from here it approaches the Waning Crescent before the New Moon.

This is when I do the Release and Let Go spread, from the Luminous Spirit Tarot by Labyrinthos Academy, as a part of my Moon Cycle Tarot.

June reading before Litha, for the intention INTUITION

From top to bottom, and left to right, the cards pulled represent:

  1. Acceptance. What must I accept to move forward and progress along my intention?
  2. Guidance. Where and from whom can you find the most support and guidance along your path?
  3. Forgiveness. What grudges have I been holding against myself or others that I must forgive?
  4. Lesson. What lesson must I learn? What else must I learn to manifest my intention?

Waning Gibbous

The Waning Gibbous Moon occurs after the Full Moon. Waning means the moon’s illumination is getting smaller. Gibbous refers to the shape, which is smaller than full, but larger than the quarter moon.

This is when I do the Reflect and Introspect spread, from the Luminous Spirit Tarot by Labyrinthos Academy, as a part of my Moon Cycle Tarot.

May reading after Beltane, for the intention “GROWTH”

From top to bottom, and left to right, the cards pulled represent:

  1. Full Potential. What are the qualities of the best self that you can be? What is your highest potential?
  2. Fears. What are your greatest fears? How do they affect you from reaching your intention?
  3. Hidden Self. What do I hide from the world? What secrets do I have that bring me shame?
  4. Deception. What lies do I tell myself the most? What am I in denial about?
  5. Regret. What actions do I wish I could take back? What haunts me?
  6. Rejected Self. What parts of my identity do I choose to reject? Why can’t I accept them?
