Welcome back – it feels like the new moon was only yesterday and now here we are. This current full moon is in sidereal Capricorn – conjunct with Saturn. Are you feeling wounded? Particularly sensitive to burnout? Has all your blood, sweat, and tears caught up to you this week? Moon with Saturn can do that. Don’t be too hard on yourself during times like this!
I am still playing around with how I would like to photograph my readings. Today I photographed the whole spread and then did individual shots of the cards I pulled from my Whispers of Healing deck – those cards have so much rich, visual detail that I feel they deserve their own shots. Please let me know what you think!
Remember that these readings are for general purposes and are not meant to tell you what you should do with your life – you and your intuition and judgment are the best tools for making decisions in your life.
Full Moon Insights:
- What needs to be forgiven or released? Gibbous Moon – You’re very close to achieving your goal

- What comes next? New Moon in Cancer – You and your loved ones are safe
I drew additional tarot cards to clarify the gibbous moon – and to just give a whole picture of what’s being conveyed. Pictured are the 7 of cups, 8 of cups, ace of swords, and two of wands.
I’m seeing a picture of a person who was struggling with feeling distracted from their goal and this caused a lot of tension and disappointment. You may have been on a path and experienced an event that made you doubt your choice, and so you spent some time with the 7 of cups – imagining different possibilities and enticing ideas that could take you out of this stressful challenge to your commitment. In the end we see the figure walk away from this confusing distraction in the 8 of cups – leaving the mess and the doubts behind. The ace of swords is introducing new clarity or a new way of thinking about the challenges that lead you to doubt your path. We then end with the 2 of wands where that same figure is gazing out onto the world they left behind, reflecting on all the steps and choices that have taken them to this moment where plans are being put into motion.
Relating back to the Moonology cards, what is being released is the moment of hesitation you experienced towards advancing your plan. I think you’re experiencing a huge shift and it’s natural to run into challenges when you head into a completely new direction from what you’ve previously done – I base this off of the fact that the ace of swords and the 2 of cups follow the 7 and the 8 of cups. It’s as though there was a mid-course correction on your journey, such as changing careers or moving to a completely new city. I don’t think that what you doubted was the thing you are moving towards in the 2 of wands, but moreso the steps you are taking to get there. This goal is something you’ve wanted for a long time. This is where the new moon in Leo and Cancer cards come in. You are allowed to believe in yourself and approach your goal with confidence – you and your loved ones are safe, there’s no need to panic. The gibbous moon is reminding you that you set out to achieve this goal of yours a while ago and you are very close to achieving what you needed to make it happen.
The other cards that accompany this reading are Sensitivity, Unexpected, and Transform. With the cups cards and cards such as the gibbous moon and new moon in Cancer, it’s worthwhile to explore how your emotions have been impacting you recently. Are you standing in your own integrity, or are you taking on the thoughts and feelings of people around you? Don’t be hard on yourself if you have – it just happens sometimes. The nymph depicted in this card is surrounded by a lush grove – go back to what makes you feel centered. The Unexpected card depicts a girl walking down a staircase and happening upon an unexpected, dazzling castle – this is you as you move through these doubts and challenges and discover that everything is going to be alright in the end. This girl is transformed by this discovery into the grown woman depicted in Transform, peering into the cloche dome as she lifts it and frees the butterflies trapped inside. This confirms the powerful shift you are experiencing. Transformations can feel like you are dying, even if it’s taking you to new heights. Hold your ground and use your intuition to identify what you need to make it through the bumps in the road. You are manifesting what you wanted!
