Grab your Tarot cards and your umbrella, we’re in for a wild watery ride this month!

The Full Blood Moon may be a challenging time for some. Emotional and watery Moon can be quite uncomfortable and vulnerable no matter which sign it is in! We may feel more emotional than usual and there is a chance that emotions, both negative and positive, can come to the forefront with striking intensity.

So, if you notice your otherwise mild-mannered friend suddenly exploding with anger about something, don’t be surprised; if you find a usually calm and serene colleague appears to be stressed and anxious, this could be the influence of the Full Moon. If you find yourself feeling anxious or irritable for no apparent reason, bear in mind that the Full Moon may be having an effect on you. The Full Moon in general tends to have a powerful effect on us, we must keep a close eye on our emotions.

But caution aside, there is a wonderful positive here too. Hobbies or interests that may have lain dormant can suddenly experience rebirth with renewed vigor and vitality; an exercise regime that had become dull can spring to life once more; a passion or interest can be delved into with enthusiasm, planning, and subsequent bright ideas.

So, we have a choice: we can let the Blood Moon rule us, come what may, or we can channel all this energy into something productive. This is where Tarot cards and a Tarot card reading come in handy!

3-Card Tarot Reading for the Blood Moon:

Checking your daily Tarot online can certainly help you prepare for this exciting upcoming Full Moon, but a personal Tarot spread can further enhance your insight into the best way to make it work in your interest.

So which reading is best for the Blood Mood? As this is all about energy and the best way to direct it, the following three-card spread will be very helpful in assisting you with harnessing your powers!

Question: How Can I Direct My Energy During the Full Blood Moon?

  • Card 1: What should I direct my energy towards?
  • Card 2: How can I direct my energy?
  • Card 3: What is holding me back?

Below is an example spread so you can gain an idea of how this spread can relate to you.

Card 1: Ace of Wands

The Ace of Wands is all about new energy. A new interest, a new hobby, perhaps even a new relationship! This card indicates that the Full Moon energy should be directed towards something new – perhaps things have become old or stagnant lately? It’s time to spice things up! Maybe there is something you have been looking into and intrigued by, but hesitant to get involved with for whatever reason. This card indicates that the energy prevalent at this time can thrive in a new endeavor.

Card 2: 8 of Pentacles

It looks like this is something that will require quite a bit of study and focus. Possibly, it could hint towards reading material such as books and articles. It may require a lot of concentration, so it would be a good idea to set yourself up for this with added aides such as some calming herbal tea and some crystals to help you tap into your inner wisdom.

Card 3: The Moon

The Moon, just like the Moon in the sky, is beautiful, enchanting and mysterious, and this is a meaning it has in Tarot. But the Moon card is in the negative here as it represents a blockage and obstacle; here we experience the dark side of the Moon, which is one of fear and confusion. What appears to be holding you back from jumping into this new endeavor is fear – perhaps fear of stepping outside your comfort zone or fear of the unknown. Remember, the Full Moon – this is a time to “just do it!”


Remember to keep an eye on our Instagram today to check out a live reading using this Tarot spread to see how it works in action!

Every Full Moon is a wonderful time for reflection and manifestation. This upcoming Full Moon in conjunction with Tarot card meanings can open up a portal of opportunity for you. The energy of the ram gives us the zest, vitality and vigor to go forth in our goals and embark on new horizons.

Tarot can do incredible things for us, whether it’s using a daily Tarot spread to see how our day will pan out, or in other areas of life, such as finding our dream partner. Working with the Universal energies at this time of the Full Moon is a great way of harnessing your inner passions, so give it a go and let the Tarot be your guide!
