Spreads & Spells for Every Month of the Year
by Victoria Constantino
Paperback and Kindle
I hope this review is helpful! Below are links to sample readings I have posted using spreads from this book:
Here are three of my favorite things about this book:
1. The Introduction. It covers so much great information, such as Tarot and the Moon, How to Make the Most of This Book, The Stance of This Book, Interpreting the Tarot, Numerological Correspondences, Tarot Symbols and Their Meaning, Preparation for Spells and Rituals, Days of the Week and Corresponding Energies, The Influences and Qualities of the Moon Phases, Unique Moons, and Color Correspondences.
2. The Spreads: These are grouped by month to go along with the Moon theme, but even if you ignore that, you have a fabulous collection of more than 60 spreads you can use at any time for any reason. A few of the titles, for example: What Is Developing (8 cards), I Direct My Attention (7 cards), Spiritual Illumination (11 cards), Trimming the Fat (8 cards).
3. Moon Descriptions/Names by Month: Each chapter features a few paragraphs about that particular month’s moon, for example, in July we have The Buck Moon, also referred to as the Thunder Moon, the Hay Moon, or the Wort Moon. Fascinating!
You are now probably wondering about the Spells and Rituals section. For example, Spells & Rituals for July are “Awakening Your Spiritual Gifts: A Tea Ritual,” “Turning Chaos into Order,” “Light of Positivity: A Healing Ritual,” and “A Thistle Protection Spell.” I don’t do spells or rituals, so I can’t really evaluate that part of the book. However, I will say that I’m pretty sure the quality and usefulness of the information on spells and rituals is equal to that of the rest of the book. I don’t think you can go wrong.
