These cards honour the New and Full Moons experienced throughout an entire year. They have been created to help us reconnect to the Moon and her radiant life force each month through simple rituals. Whether you are a ritual novice or an experienced witch, you will love using these cards as a basis for your healing and transformational journey of self awareness, growth, love and acceptance. The card deck includes 24 rituals – 12 New Moon and 12 Full Moon rituals, completely different and in alignment with the energy of the associated Zodiac. They can be used for personal guidance or for creating monthly lunar rituals. The perfect gift for your self or someone you love.
The Moon has long been adored and worshipped, known for its guidance, inspiration and support. The Moon is an expression of Divine Feminine – journeying through a monthly cycle of an average 29.5 days. Just like women. She reminds us to honour the various phases we pass through each month. In ancient times, it was common for women to menstruate during the time of the New Moon and to ovulate during the Full Moon.
The New Moon is the beginning of the Moon’s cycle, a time to set new intentions for what we want to focus on throughout the upcoming cycle. Whereas the Full Moon is halfway through the cycle, the time she shows up in full illumination. It’s an opportunity to honour where and who we are, to seal our intentions, preparing to let go of what no longer serves us.
Each month the Moon will pass through the 12 Zodiac signs, and the New and Full Moon is represented by a different sign each month. There is an opportunity to cultivate a beautiful relationship with the Moon and ourselves by honouring each of her phases and the sign that she falls in.
When you receive or purchase these cards, spend some time cleansing their energy. You can do this by holding them in the smoke of a smudging tool (incense, Sage, Palo Santo), or playing a sound bowl over them. Then hold the deck to your heart centre, take a few deep breaths and set an intention for your cards. Commit to taking care of them and ask them to take care of you, with gratitude. Store your cards in a sacred place. Place a Selenite crystal or Clear Quartz on the top to regularly keep them charged and cleansed.
How to use the cards with the New and Full Moon
Use the relevant card on the New or Full Moon and follow the ritual instructions. If you don’t have the exact tools required, you may use substitutes. For example, Clear Quartz can be used instead of any other crystal and essential oils can be replaced with actual herbs or flower essences.
How to use the cards for guidance
The cards can be used for guidance any time of the year. Begin by shuffling them for as long as you feel you need to. Then spread out your cards, close your eyes and hover your hand over them until you feel a magnetic pull and choose that card. Once you’ve pulled the card, sit with it and its message and intuitively be guided by what is coming up for you. You can meditate or journal on what came up for you and identify what action steps you can take based on that guidance.
