Here are some of the most common questions I get from my fellow women of woo; those who are looking to open their world up but are not too sure where to start. If I haven’t managed to answer a question you have here within our FAQs, please do feel free to get in touch.
Who is Wild as the Moon?
Hi, I’m Gina your sister in woo and creator of Wild as the Moon.
My mission is to create a digital sanctuary for kindred spirits to share their methods of flourishing within this weird old world we live in. Crystals, Tarot, astrology and Moon magic, oracle cards, herbalism, women’s circles and conscious living – DRINK THIS SHIT IN.
This is the space for beautiful experiences with like minded souls, learning to live in tune with your own nature. read more about me here.
Where are you based?
I live in Kent, UK. Though I travel as often as possible in Beethoven the campervan. I share a lot of my day to day adventures on Instagram too, so you can see what I get up to.
Where do you ship to?
We currently ship to anywhere in the UK for free! Check out the Gemini Collection shop to rummage through the tools I have on offer.
Outside of the UK? Just email me to let me know what you’d like and I can sort the rest out for you. I do ask for shipping to be covered for any international orders.

For all UK orders shipping is completely free!
For international orders we will get a courier quote and let you know the total. Simply email me to let me know what you want and where to send it and I’ll organise your international dose of Wild as the Moon.
Are you sustainable/eco friendly?
I am vegan and pro treading lightly on the earth; so we do the best we can to make sure we are as sustainable as possible. The majority of the materials we use to create our products are locally sourced, intentionally foraged by hand or are in fact waste material that we have shown some love to and given a whole new life to. My little home workshops for making your tools is powered by green electricity.
When I ship your products to you I do my best to source second hand boxes; which may not look as pretty on the outside but obviously have a lower environmental impact. I use paper packing or eco tissue paper and paper tape to package up your parcels.
By the way, a vegan lifestyle is proven to be the most earth friendly way of living.
What social media do you have?
Instagram – catch up on all of our day to day adventures, plus loads of helpful guidance for starting your path to healing.
Pinterest – check out the boards and follow us on Pinterest for all the inspiration you could need on your self empowerment journey and the latest from me.
What is a spiritual practice?
We all have a slightly different take on what the word ‘spiritual’ means and there are a number of interchangeable words we might use to illustrate that meaning. A spiritual practice is your personal, individual practice to cope with this weird old earthly existence. For me, if I refer to “a spiritual practice”, I mean a healing journey which brings you closer to planet earth, the Universe and your fellow humans.
Is spiritual the same as religious?
I personally don’t believe spiritual is the same as religious. But if you prefer to follow a certain religion, there is nothing stopping you from entwining the two. You do you.
What is a Sisterhood / Women’s circle?
A women’s circle or sisterhood is a space where women come together to nurture and lift each other, help each other to grow and guide each other. Circles can be held in person or online to surround yourself with a likeminded tribe of powerful as fuck women, who have all chosen to step up, follow their own path and reclaim their power.
Why are women’s circles important?
Women’s Circles are bloody powerful and so needed in our turbulent times; so, consider this your invitation to answer the call of the collective wild woman. I have come across so many women who are lonely or feel there is something missing from their life. That’s why there is something incredibly powerful about a group of women coming together; women together are an unstoppable force.
What is a crystal grid?
Crystal grids are the perfect way to harness the full energy of your crystal babies. Arranging your crystals in specific geometric shapes, focuses and enhances their energy in a particular way, for a particular purpose. To read more in depth about the different benefits and ways of using crystal grids, we have written this for you.
How do I use a crystal grid?
When using a grid you want to have a specific intention in mind. Use this intention to decide which crystals to work with.
The main focus crystal goes at the centre. For example, for a new moon intention setting practice you could place clear quartz at the centre. Clear quartz holds onto energy and therefore intensifies the energy of your intention. The other crystals you would pick based on whatever your intention is and they would go around the edge of the grid. Possibly citrine for abundance or rose quartz for love etc. You can use as many or as few as you want for whatever intention you want to set.
You can use them to set your intention before a meditation, as a sleep aid to place in your bedroom, for moon ceremonies or any other purpose where you want to intensify the energy of crystals.
How do I know what crystals I need?
When starting out on your journey with crystals it takes a while to learn all the different healing properties and how to look after them, so to make it easier, here are a couple of ways to decide which crystals to get started with; either with intuition, or with colour.
Colour – If you already know what kind of healing or energy work you’d like to do, it can be helpful to focus on the associated colour. We all have seven energy centres in our bodies called Chakras. Your Chakras impact everything within your emotional, mental, physical and spiritual health. So, finding the corresponding Chakra to the work you want to do will tell you what colour crystal can help you. For example, for grounding work you want your root Chakra, which is red. To help you with your communication skills you want your throat Chakra, which is blue. For self love and abundance you want the heart Chakra, which is Pink or Green.
Intuition – If you are not yet sure which healing properties you want or need from your crystals, following your intuition is a wonderful idea. When you visit a crystal shop, take a walk around with a completely open mind and see which crystals you are drawn to most strongly. It might be a certain colour, a certain piece or certain shape. Just let your intuition guide you and pick the ones which ‘feel’ right. You can then look into their properties afterwards to see what your body/spirit needs the most.
How do I book a Tarot reading?

How do online Tarot readings work?
All reading themes are open to whatever feels right for you. You are welcome to let me know if you want your reading to be based on career, family, romance, health or any other specific subject. Likewise, you are more than welcome to simply allow the messages that you need to hear the most to come through.

All Tarot readers practice in different ways. But, personally, I don’t believe in predicting the future. Because, the future is always open to change. You choose your own destiny by saying yes or no to the opportunities presented to you. What I offer is guidance and insight to empower you to take control of your own destiny. To help guide you to the tools you need to walk the path you truly desire to walk.
How long does it take to get my reading after booking?
I aim to have all readings completed within 5 days of booking. If for any reason I can’t, I will let you know.
How often can I have a Tarot reading?
As often as you like! I talk to my cards most days for guidance, as do most readers. Just listen to your instincts, you will know how often is right for you.
Are Tarot readings safe?
Yes! All I offer is guidance, support and insight. It is entirely up to you, what you choose to do with it. I am fiercely passionate about supporting women to step up, into their own personal power and take charge of their own journey. I simply offer tools to help you do this. If you have any concerns about Tarot, hopefully I have answered your questions here, but please do feel free to get in touch with anything else.
