The Moon Sign Significator Tarot Spread

To better understand the emotional connection you have with your beloved, it is worth looking at their astrological Moon Sign. The Moon rules our emotions (+ any psychic ability) and forms a very important part of our basic personality. You are literally born with a certain emotional disposition. While circumstances certainly during your upbringing (and possibly by traumatic/major events later in life) affect your emotional development, you essentially remain the same throughout the span of your life.

In contrast to the Sun sign, the Moon is who you already are before you incarnate (an accumulation of soul lessons, combined with your unique predisposition) and the Sun is what you are here to learn by taking on this persona, almost like an actor signing up for a role. This may help those of you who do not experience your Sun sign as a good fit until later in life. This was certainly the case for me, as I always identify much more with my Pisces Moon than with my Capricorn Sun.

For instance, a Pisces Moon sign person is always going to be more sensitive than your average person and a Saggie Moon Sign person will always have a greater-than-average craving for adventure and travel.

Some Moon Sign Research

To be able to do this Tarot spread, you will need to do some research… but don’t fret! It is really simple, especially if you know yours and your beloved’s date and time of birth. You will need the time because the Moon changes signs approximately every 2½ days and chances are that they could land on either side of a cusp if born on a day when the Moon does change signs. If they were born on a day when the Moon remained in the same sign, you don’t need the time (although you may find it comes in handy for interpreting the rest of the chart).

HERE is a link for a Moon Sign Calculator.

Next, you need to locate the corresponding Major Arcana cards for both Moon Signs. Feel free to use a Majors-only deck for this if you wish to play with a full deck for the other three positions in the spread. I have written down a few keywords for each Moon sign but encourage you to do some further research to find the keywords that are the perfect fit for you and your beloved.

You may even wish to do the spread on a large sheet of white paper. That way you can write down the keywords next to the cards.

    1. Well, usually that means that you already have affinity and a solid emotional connection… but of course, you can still read on it. This is where having more than one Tarot deck comes in handy… 😉 Oh, and for the keywords there might be subtle differences to explore. Should make for an interesting Tarot exercise!
