Full moon in Scorpio tarot spread layout & questions to ask

Scorpio full moons typically have themes of control, privacy, depth, and connection. This is a time when you may feel pulled towards the dark side of life, and you may be compelled to explore your shadow self. The key thing to remember during this time is that everything comes to light eventually. So if there are things that you have been hiding from yourself or others, now is the time to face them.

To begin, shuffle your tarot deck and draw a card for each position as shown in the below layout.

Finally, take some time to reflect on the questions that each card position represents and what message the tarot cards in that position might be trying to tell you. If you’re just starting to learn tarot, or if you’re still getting to know your deck, you may find my in-depth articles on the meanings of every tarot card helpful.

Tarot Card #1: A secret I might not know about myself is...

This card is to provide you with some introspection you might not be aware of. The purpose of bringing this forward is to help you gain more insight into yourself. It might be something that you have been keeping hidden away, or it could be an unknown aspect of your personality. Whatever it is, this card will shed some light on it.

Tarot Card #2: Financial tips and control for the month ahead

A key thing about finances and Scorpios, in general, is that they are very resourceful. They know how to make the most of what they have, and they are not afraid to get their hands dirty. This card is all about financial advice and tips for the month ahead. It might be wise to start considering your budget and making some long-term plans for your finances.

Tarot Card #3: Where am I the most magnetic, bringing the most excitement to others?

Another delight about the charm from Scorpio is the full moon’s ability to bring more excitement and magnetism into people’s lives. This card is about where you are the most magnetic and exciting to others. It might be something about you, personally. It might be a place, or an activity, that you enjoy doing that brings out the most magick from you. It could be a situation in which you find yourself. Just know that wherever this is, it’s where you are shining the brightest.

Tarot Card #4: How to give myself more privacy and more control in my life?

This is a card to feed the Scorpio energy. It is about asking for and giving yourself, more privacy and control in your life. It might be something as simple as taking some time for yourself each day, or it could be something more drastic, such as moving to a new home. Whatever it is, this card will help you to manifest it into your life.

"I release others' input & control."

This statement, affirmation, and cleansing release offer you the full moon Scorpio’s private, deep and penetrating power to connect within. It gives you the ability to establish boundaries with others and take back full control of your life. This can be something as simple as setting personal space boundaries, letting go of toxic relationships, or saying no to things that don’t serve your highest good. State this loudly, with a glass of wine or with your morning coffee, in your room when getting ready or on your way to work for the day. You’ve got this.

What to do after this tarot reading

After you’ve finished a tarot reading, there are a few things you can do in order to reflect on the experience and integrate the insights you gained. Here are some suggestions:

Use a tarot journal to record your findings

Jotting down your thoughts in a tarot journal after reading can be helpful in a few ways. First, it can help you remember the details of your reading later on, such as how you felt at the moment and perhaps your first impressions of what a card meant. Second, it can provide a space for you to process the information you’ve received and explore what it means for you. Third, it can be a way to keep track of your progress over time as you revisit your journal entries and reflect on your journey.

Take a picture of the cards

If you want to remember the position of the cards and what they meant in relation to your questions, take a picture of the spread. This will help you look back on the reading later and review the insights you received. Sometimes, clarity is better acquired after you’ve stepped back from the situation for a little while and had some time to process it.

Some people create Instagram accounts or Pinterest accounts specifically for this, and if you use any of our spreads please tag us @backyardbanshee if you feel comfortable!

Take some time to meditate and reflect

Immediately after a tarot reading, it’s important to take some time to sit with the insights you’ve received. This can be done through proper meditation, visualisation, or simply taking some time to reflect on the reading. It can be helpful to think about what the messages from the cards mean for your life and how you can apply the advice that was given to you. That time can also be used to replenish your energy level and cleanse your tarot deck.

Get a second opinion from a close friend

If you have close friends who also happen to be tarot practitioners, it can be helpful to get their take on your reading. They may be able to offer additional insights or perspectives that you hadn’t considered before. This is also a good way to get feedback on your own interpretation of the cards.

Ensure to ask permission before just blindly sending your cards across in a message and saying “what does this mean to you?” as your friends may not have the energy or have a boundary with this sort of thing – manners cost nothing, and this is especially to note if they are a professional tarot reader who normally gets paid to interpret readings.

Layer your reading with more divination

Why not try adding astrology dice or a pendulum reading to your tarot session? Your intuition will guide you on how to best use these tools, but they can be helpful in providing more clarity around the messages from your tarot reading. We have lots of methods for you to utilise here on the website.

At the end of the day, tarot readings are meant to be a helpful tool, not a replacement for your own intuition. The best way to use tarot is to combine the insights you receive with your own understanding of the situation. Trust your gut and follow your heart—the answers you’re looking for will come.

It is my hope that these tarot spreads on my website help you with clarity and articulate whatever is going on. Let me know what you think of this tarot spread in the comments below and if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me.
