Tarot layout: Moon in Libra reading

The topic of specialized readings came up on a Discord channel, so I made a layout for the full moon in Libra (that’s today, technically in about 5 hours; the next day and a half or so are still considered “full moon” for magical workings).

9. The Gift: What you receive today

You know what? No.
