Hey guys! I’ve been really big on paying attention to the moon phases recently, so I wanted to design a spread around that idea. I love progression and situation spreads that show possible outcomes, so I coupled the ideas together and came out with this layout. This spread is great for analyzing a situation you may be going through, whether it’s in the workplace, your home life, with your friendships and relationships, anything! It answers questions such as, “What outside influences can help me in this situation?” and “What challenges will I face along the way?” I went ahead and asked about my profession, so lets dig in and see what I drew. 🙂
“Where is my profession currently headed?”
Position 1 New Moon: The Current Situation
I smiled when I turned over the Death card because I know I’ve been in a rut with my profession recently. Things are stale and becoming too predictable. Everything is stressing me out left and right. The Death card is telling me that something needs to change. It’s the card of shedding something to make room for a rebirth. This card is suggesting to me that I need to find change or something that I can get rid of to make room for something new. I need a fresh perspective, new feelings and new emotions when facing my profession.
Position 2 Waxing Moon: Other Challenges Along the Way
Six of Swords
The Six of Swords is a card of leaving something behind and moving on, a card of self realization, escape and journey. This is where the challenges present itself: while the Death card wants me to seek change, this card is telling me that it may be emotionally or even physically difficult to find that path. It might be hard to find the strength or means to change something and it may also be suggesting that what I need to leave behind may be very emotionally difficult for me.
Position 3 Full Moon: Inner Strengths That Can Help Me
Knight of Pentacles
I love this card’s depiction of the Knight of Pentacles! This card isn’t in a rush and has time to think about how it can grow and how it can reach attainment. This Knight is telling me that I need to trust myself, keep a routine and continue working hard. I need to draw on those energies to get me through this situation and any other challenges that I may end up facing. Perhaps this situation will unfold by itself just by me keeping my pace and being patient while working hard.
Position 4 Waning Moon: Outside Influences
Page of Cups
The Page of Cups is a card of creative aspirations. This Page wants to discover and try new things and it wants me to look at things with a fresh perspective. While the previous card helped me discover what’s inside of me that may help me, this is the card that will help me see what’s around me that can help me. In this case, I feel this card is telling me to seek others or pay attention to others. Perhaps new opportunities from others will begin to pop up or I’ll start receiving messages or cues from others that will help guide me through this.
Position 5 Dark Moon: Possible Outcome
Queen of Wands
I had a good laugh when I flipped this card over as this is the card I use if I am using a card to represent myself. I felt right away that if I’m able to get through this situation using the steps and influences above, then I’ll be able to get back to being my true self again. The Queen of Wands is filled with passion, fire and desire. She wants to succeed and she isn’t afraid to tell others around her, hey I’m doing well! I miss being like that. 🙂 I’m happy to know that if I can get through my current situation, then I have my most ideal outcome ahead of me.
Overall I’m pretty happy about the way this spread turned out! Looking it over as a whole, I was very happy to find that all of the suits are represented here. This tells me that even though I’m going through something, that I’m still well rounded. I’m still able to use and appreciate each aspect of myself. If you enjoyed this spread, please give it a try! I’m curious to see how well it works for other types of questions, so if you end up using it I would love to hear your results and how it worked out for you. 🙂 As always I hope this spread helps your studies, and I hope it brings inspiration to your day today!
Until next time!
