How To Perform a First Quarter Moon Tarot Spread

The first quarter moon phase lasts around a week. You can perform this spread on any of these nights. It is useful to perform the first quarter moon spread in a place where you can see the moon. However, it is okay if you can’t do this! The energy of the first quarter moon still surrounds you, even if you cannot see it.

Before performing this spread, you may wish to meditate with a selenite or moonstone crystal. These crystals boost your connection with the moon and allow its energy to mix with your own.

When you are ready, shuffle the deck and pull six cards.
