How To Perform a New Moon Tarot Spread
This new moon Tarot spread examines your potential, areas of rebirth and renewal, and letting go. It is important to perform this spread on the night of the new moon when it gets dark.
Take time to connect yourself with the new moon before performing the spread. You can do this through meditation or lighting candles. While doing so, ask the energy of the new moon to come to you.
When you are ready, shuffle the deck and draw six cards.
Card One: Letting Go
The first card in this new moon Tarot spread reflects anything you need to let go of to truly embrace your potential. This may reflect relationships, bad habits, or anxieties holding you back.
This is a critical card because, without letting go of what does not serve us, we cannot truly move forward. Meditate with this card for a while, allowing it to guide you.
Card Two: Renewal
The second card in this spread represents areas of your life that need a little TLC. The new moon brings the energy of renewal to all aspects of our life. It is basically a spring clean every month!
This card shows you anything you need to shake up and pay attention to in the upcoming month.
Card Three: Where I Am
This card is a reflection of where you are right now. As the new moon allows us to manifest and create, we must take a moment to consider our current circumstances and what we actually need from life.
This card may represent something positive or reveal a problem in your life that needs your attention.
Card Four: Rebirth
The fourth card in this new moon Tarot spread reflects an aspect of your life that needs a complete change. It asks for transformation and rebirth, allowing you to focus on what matters.
This card may be difficult to understand at first, so take your time to reflect on the different areas of your life and what it could represent.
Card Five: Potential
The fifth card represents the potential energy in your life. It will usually represent something you are ignoring or have yet to discover. However, with the new moon’s energy, you can embrace this potential and understand your true self.
This card may reveal a talent or creative pursuit you need to truly dive into. It may also show you ways you can help others. It is an inspiring card, so take time to meditate on its meaning and how you can manifest this potential in your life.
Card Six: New Energy
The final card in this new moon Tarot spread represents new energy coming your way in this moon cycle. This card will reveal what you need to look out for and embrace.
It will usually have a pretty positive meaning, but don’t be afraid if the meaning of this card is negative! If the new energy shows you something you really don’t want, work out what you can do to change things up and put yourself back on the right path.
Asking the Tarot: What Intentions Should I Set for the New Moon?
The new moon is the perfect time to set intentions and send them out into the universe. However, you may need help figuring out what to focus on when setting intentions. By turning to Tarot, you can figure out what needs your focus right now.
Shuffle the deck and ask, ‘what intentions should I set for the new moon.’ Then, pull out a card. Take a look at it and see how your life is reflected in it. What intentions should you be making for this lunar cycle?
Pull out another card to get further information from the deck if you need to. Remember, you can set intentions for anything you want. But, it is important to set intentions for things you actually need. The Tarot can help you discover this.
Three-Card New Moon Tarot Reading
The three-card reading is also an option if you want a quick and simple spread. This gives an accurate answer, but I’ll leave it to you to decide which you need.
You can extend this reading to four cards with an additional qualifying card, but if it isn’t painting a clear path for you, I’d suggest taking the time with the complete spread.
