The cards I pulled for today's Full Moon in Pisces are the Queen of Cups (Water) the King of Pentacles (Earth) and the Devil reversed (Capricorn-Earth).
This Queen (associated with Pisces) is sensitive, intuitive, dreamy and compassionate. The King (who represents the Virgo-Earth side of this Full Moon) is practical and grounded. Their elements are compatible - he grounds her while she reminds him that there's more to life than material concerns.
This tells us that the opposing elements of this Full Moon (and the associated Grand Earth Trine) can work together, especially since the Devil card is reversed. This is the card of bondage and addiction - it refers to the bonds you create for yourself. For example, the romantic obsession that you just can't seem to let go of. Or any addiction/destructive behaviour that you're not getting help for. But when this card is reversed, it suggests that this Full Moon's ending might refer to breaking those bonds.
How? Well, you know what you have to do and how you can ensure your security (the King). There are practical steps to take. But you're also tuning in to what you sense or feel (the Queen). Her intuition is quite powerful and can be used to attract what she needs. And she's compassionate- you're forgiving yourself or someone else. Part of the release of this Full Moon involves letting go: you can't break the Devil's bonds unless you choose to stop replaying the past, or punishing yourself, or dwelling on what a terrible person _____ is.
Release/intuition leads to security which allows you to break free of what's been trapping you. The order of the cards is important - the Queen comes first. First, you let go/forgive/honour what you feel. Then you're left with something you can build on and the result is freedom. This is the freedom that comes from knowing you're going to be ok.
The cards for today's Full Moon eclipse in Aquarius are the Knight of Swords (Air) the Empress (Venus-Earth) and the Queen of Pentacles (Earth).
The Knight certainly resonates with this eclipse's disruptive energy - this guy is sharp, impatient and detached. He has a goal that he's going to push through, and emotion does not factor into it. All Knights indicate change, and this one suggests fast-moving events.
What a contrast to the earthy energy of the Empress and Queen of Pentacles. These ladies seem to reflect today's Venus/Pluto trine. The Empress is a Major Arcana card, so she represents a big (perhaps universal) issue involving nurturing, motherhood, abundance or fertility. She can represent abundance on any physical level - money, the body, literal fertility. The Queen is the Empress manifested on a personal level. All that the Empress represents comes through via a daily, mundane issue.
So the question here is, what are you pushing for or what sudden change are you being confronted with? The Empress and Queen indicate that the big "thing" you're concerned with may already have manifested in your life. You've got it, you just need to develop it. Note that Air and Earth are incompatible, and since Earth is the stronger element there's a caution to slow down and not push. Not only do you not have to, you probably won't be able to force your agenda - the Empress outweighs our Knight. This applies if you're dealing with a shock or if someone comes at you - centre yourself in what you already have.
The Knight and Empress/Queen can also refer to actual people - a younger, pushy man and older, patient woman (or women - sometimes the Empress is a dominant mother figure and the Queen is her daughter).
Here are the cards I pulled for tonight's New Moon eclipse in Cancer.
The Ace of Pentacles (Earth) is appropriate for the energy of beginnings, since all Aces are about something brand new. The element of Earth tells us this eclipse's potentials are the real deal. It may not be flashy or exciting, but you can count on what's starting.
The Magician (Mercury-Air) says you have the power to make this happen. However, Air and Earth are not compatible elements, so there may be some tension between what you want to say/write (Mercury is your bold new idea) versus the more practical elements of what you're dealing with. The Magician can be full of great ideas but grounding them in reality could be an issue.
The Queen of Cups (Water) has a neutral relationship with the Magician (Water and Air get along ok). But note the contrast between her passive/Yin energy (she holds back and keeps secrets) versus his masculine/Yang energy. She clearly expresses this eclipse's Cancer vibe, and next to the Magician, there's a suggestion that intellect must be combined with intuition. Perhaps her influence is needed to bring the Magician's energy down a notch so his big idea can work in reality. Water (the Queen) and Earth (the Ace) are very compatible and fertile.
Alternatively, the Magician can refer to a charming, persuasive character who talks a good game, but his/her words must be viewed with caution. Can this person follow up on what they're saying? What does your gut tell you?
As this eclipse kicks off a new chapter, consider what you know and what you feel.

The cards I drew for today's Capricorn Full Moon are the 4 of Pentacles reversed (Sun in Capricorn-Earth) the 7 of Wands reversed (Mars in Leo-Fire) and the 8 of Swords (Jupiter in Gemini-Air).
The reversed 4 of Pentacles is about clinging to something (usually money or material goods). You're holding on so tight (because you're afraid of loss) that you've cut yourself off from others. You're clamped down in fear. And, sometimes this card does indicate an actual loss. Appropriately enough for this Full Moon, Capricorn energy is part of this card, but it's distorted- fear and limits.
This takes us directly to the reversed 7 of Wands which suggests feeling like you can't win. Whatever fear the 4 of Pentacles indicates has sapped your courage (Mars) and pride (Leo). Actions (Mars) have ground to a halt, which is again indicative of this Full Moon's energy.
And finally we have the 8 of Swords- blocked again, because you're overwhelmed by choices. Jupiter (expansion) in Gemini (choices) is too much, and you don't know what route to take.
The overall feel to this spread is being stuck. Whatever culmination this Full Moon has brought may be emphasizing where you can't go or what you can't do. But you may not be as stuck as you think. The key with the 8 of Swords is to understand that most of the restrictions are in your head (Air). You do have a choice, you just have to make it. Your situation may not be happy-making, but that doesn't mean you have to freeze. This is a turning point.
The strongest card in this spread is the Fire card (even though it's reversed). Earth and Fire get along ok, and Air and Fire are really compatible (Earth and Air are not compatible). So it's a matter of turning that Wands card right-side up: take action, keep fighting. Make a choice and focus your energy on that.
