The New Moon arrived this evening here in Vancouver, at 5:28 pm PT, and I felt the urge to create a variation on a New Moon Spread, which I’m calling — rather simply! — Wisdom of the Moon Phases.
In this layout, choose five cards and lay face down starting in the North and then working “deiseal” (sunwise, from a NH perspective) through East, South, West and finally Centre.
1 North: Where it all begins: what are the seeds of my dream?
2 East: What inspires my dreams to manifest?
3 South: What flourishes in my life as I ignite my dreams?
4 West: How will I sustain the dreams I have realized?
5 Centre: What ally or wisdom will guide me through the month?
I’ll be pulling my cards tonight — or possibly at the first hint of light of the waxing moon (that, for me, is the “real” New Moon).
