Full Moon in Cancer Tarot Spread

By January 28, 2022 January 30th, 2022

Have you been a bit weepy and emotional lately? Or maybe you’re feeling like a finely-tuned radio, picking up on the subtlest of frequencies during your Tarot readings. Or perhaps, you’re feeling like an energetic sponge — soaking up the emotions of everyone around you.

It wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest if you are — because that's the energy of the beautiful Full Moon in Cancer!

The Full Moon in Cancer

The Full Moon in Cancer shines on the most tender parts of our hearts, lighting all the cracks and crevices in our emotional worlds. The Full Moon in Cancer is time to “feel your feelings,” honoring the ways you’ve nurtured yourself and celebrating the divine feminine within. 

How to Harness the Power of This Full Moon

This Full Moon is a great time to emotionally connect with yourself as well as with those around you. But take caution — if you’re particularly empathic, you could more easily absorb the emotions of others at this time, so be sure to protect your energy and your boundaries.

This particular Full Moon is also the perfect opportunity to release and let go of any residual energies from the past six months — although this may happen without you even meaning it to! Don’t be surprised if the things you’ve intended to let go from the past fully come to the surface in a giant wave of much-needed release.

Take time to sit with and delve into your swirling emotions during this period and get ready to emerge on the other side with a deeper understanding about your past and a more clear path into your future. 

If you have a hard time facing and expressing your emotions, this could be a challenging transitional period for you. That’s why I created this Full Moon in Cancer Spread to help you navigate the watery energies of this powerful lunation.

The Full Moon in Cancer Tarot Spread

I recommend doing this spread either a couple of days before or after the Full Moon. Ideally, you would do this outside beneath the light of the Moon — but inside is just fine as well. Make sure you set aside about 30 minutes to an hour of quiet time to complete and digest the messages from this spread. I’d also recommend taking notes in a journal to capture any insights that come in for you so you can look back on them later. 

  1. How have I nurtured my emotional self in the last 6 months?
  2. Where in my life am I ready to heal?
  3. How can I open my heart whilst maintaining healthy boundaries?
  4. Which of my emotions are no longer serving my highest good?
  5. What aspects of my Self need mothering now?
  6. What do I need to release in order to trust life?

I’ll be looking out for your posts on Instagram to see how you’re embodying this Full Moon in Cancer energy. Be sure to tag #biddytarot when you post your Tarot spread so I can check it out!
