Corn Moon Reading

It’s that time again.  I haven’t done (or have done, but haven’t actually spent any time with) my full moon readings since the last time I posted here.

It’s appropriate, then, that this be my first post from the new Temple: a one-bedroom apartment where the sun first rises over the state of Indiana.  I moved in the night before the full moon, and performed a simple Esbat and house blessing (which I will write about later), and did my monthly reading.





1st – Self, Viewpoint


Ace of Swords

New beginnings, esp. ideas. Thirst for knowledge. Opportunity and clear decisions.


2nd – Finances, Income


3 Swords

Heartbreak, disappointment, bad news, miscalculation.

Miscalculation, threat of loss.

3rd – Daily Experiences

immediate influences

Knight of Cups

Tender, romantic man; seducer and charmer. Expression of feelings.

Incidentally, the card who rules my birthday.

4th – Home-place

family, land, roots

XXI the World

Completion, joy of living. Being in the right place at the right time. Fulfillment and reconciliation. Warns against thinking one has reached the goal.


5th – Fun / Pleasure

children, hobbies,

Ace of Cups

New beginnings, esp. emotions & relationships. Bliss and opportunity.


6th – Work

illness, duty, routine

3 Disks

Taking concrete steps; translating ideas into reality. Slow process.

Stabilizing what one has achieved; turning projects into reality. The semester is starting in a week. I think the meaning here is pretty clear.

7th – Partnership

associations, spouse

8 Disks

Cautious new beginning. Moderation. Care and patience. Encourages letting time do the work for you.


8th – Taboo / Crisis

sex, death, taxes, loans

XX Judgment

Transformation and new beginnings. Hope and self-discovery. Spiritual development. Career progress.


9th – Higher Perception

journey, movement

3 Cups

Partnership, fulfillment, joy, exchange and rich harvest.


10th – Recognition

career, ambition, status

XVI the Tower

Collapse, catastrophe, and new beginnings. Upheaval. Breakthrough. Liberation. Fate.

Radical change. A tour de force.

11th – Friendships

groups, social activities

4 Wands

Stability, order, and harmony. The Wheel of Fortune in miniature. Partnership and completion.


12th – Secrets & Fears

hopes, ambitions

Queen of Swords

Wealth of ideas, presence of mind, quick-witted. Independent. A person (particularly a woman) who exhibits these characteristics.

Of course I want to be the Queen of Swords. Or meet her. And of course I’m scared of her – you think I’m stupid or something?

+2 – Current Position /

Outside Influences

7 Wands

Doing battle from the higher ground. Risking a single-handed effort. Growing beyond one’s limits. Taking a risk or hard assignment.


4 Swords

Peace. Rest. Stasis. Calm before the storm. Building one’s strength.

Underlying Theme

Queen of Disks

Fertility, sense of security, sensuality, serenity, endurance. Dedication to the task with endurance and patience




Me / You

– 1st, 7th

Ace of Swords


I really have no idea where this is going. “Focus on your self and let time take care of the rest”?

8 Disks


From Where To Where

– 4th, 10th

XXI the World


Neither of these cards come as a surprise this month. I just finished disassembling one life and must now begin building a new one.

XVI the Tower



– 1st, 5th, 9th

Ace of Swords


Two aces – air and water. Another water card – the highly auspicious 3. But there are no fire cards in my fire trine. My passion is a hurricane, not a firestorm.

Ace of Cups


3 of Cups



– 2nd, 6th, 10th

3 Swords

Heartbreak, failure.

My material world has come apart and must be put back together. Nothing I didn’t already know.

3 Disks

Craft and process.

XVI the Tower

The shiny red reset button.


– 3rd, 7th, 11th

Knight of Cups

Feelings and their expression.

My mind is going to be on everything but my mind this month. That’s something I’m going to have to be careful of.

8 Disks

Patience and meticulous process.

4 Wands

Completion and stability.


– 4th, 8th, 12th

XXI the World


Again the major arcana speaking of completion and reconstruction. And again with the air-water connection.

XX Judgment


Queen of Swords

Discernment, brilliance

There haven’t been many surprises in this reading – well, except 8D, which might refer to my transforming relationship with Aradia (who has not moved to Sunrise, IN with me) or might refer to something new coming along much sooner than I would have expected or wanted.

There are only three major arcana cards in my reading, but they’re all doozies: XXI, XX, and XVI. I have pressed the shiny red reset button on my life.

Given the amount of upheaval in my life, it’s no surprise that my elements are out of balance. My air and water are cross wired – QS in my water trine, KnC in my air ; the AS and AC in my fire – and I have no wands except for the 4 in my air. I’m going to have to work very hard to keep from getting completely out of balance.
