The last time this event occurred was over 30 years ago, and we won't be seeing this again until 2033.
What's more, the colour of the moon will turn red, so it's aptly called a 'blood moon'.
Needless to say there are people out there, who believe the world will end on that day, but rather than being worried about that, I will instead try out a Tarot spread I created for this event.
It's a simple 3-card reading, but for some extra fun it involves the High Priestess, the Moon and the Sun:
1. Shuffle your deck thoroughly.
2. Then, look through your deck until you get to the High Priestess. The card behind her will answer the question:
What is currently hidden that needs to be revealed to me?
3. Next, look through your deck until you get to the Moon. The card behind will answer the question:
How does this affect my feelings and emotions?
4. Lastly, look through your deck until you get to the Sun. The card behind will answer the question:
How can I gain more clarity?
I tried this spread before and found it illuminated new ideas and perspectives I didn't see before and connected them with my emotions (which before had puzzled me at times). Quite a revelation, so why not give it a go at this special time of the year.
In order to make this reading even more fun, I have created a cosmic journaling sheet you can print and use to record your reading. Access the PDF document here.
This reading was first published in my Tarot Moon Journal 2015, and the 2016 edition of this popular workbook will be available early November. If you wish to be notified when it is published, please subscribe to my newsletter.
