We just had the new moon in Virgo on August 27th wherein we had the opportunity to set a new intention. This week, the moon is in its waxing (increasing) phase as it travels through the signs of Libra, Scorpio and Sagittarius. These tarot cards (Emperor, Seven of Wands, Hierophant) reflect powerful energies corresponding to the signs of Aries, Leo and Taurus. The words integrity, valor and authority are coming to mind as the overall theme for this reading.
Moon in Libra – The Emperor. Consistency, focus, leadership and discipline is the message from The Emperor for the beginning of the week. Set appropriate boundaries and stick to them. You may be in a leadership role or the main decision maker at home or work. Or this card can reflect someone in your life with these qualities. Some of you may have recently been promoted. You may need to set some rules or re-establish your authority within your relationships, at work or in a situation. Don’t assume people know what you want. Communicate your expectations clearly. Be firm but fair.
Moon in Scorpio: In the middle of the week, the Seven of Wands indicates that your resolve may be tested. You may be required to defend your position. Have the courage to face this challenge head-on, sooner is better than later. If this is a serious concern, it may be time to take this to a higher level such as human resources, a lawyer, therapist, supervisor, etc. On a lesser scale, stand up and speak up. This is the perfect opportunity to establish yourself as someone that is to be respected. This is a card of holding one’s ground. It’s a fiery combination of Mars in Leo. You can win this! Fortune favors the brave.
Moon in Sagittarius: At the end of the week, The Hierophant upright is a good sign! It denotes integrity and moral values. Whatever you were going through this week, your actions were justified. I also see this as the truth coming out in a situation. No matter what the outcome was, you won this one, because you stood up for yourself and made sure your voice was heard. Even if this was not necessarily a monumental life event, it may very well have resulted in an important spiritual growth lesson for you.
Have a great week everyone!
I hope this week finds everyone well! This is your tarot forecast for 8/22-8/28/22
The moon travels through the signs of Cancer, Leo and Virgo this week. The next few days are a particularly auspicious time as the moon completes its waning phase as it approaches the new moon in Virgo on August 27th. New moons give us the opportunity to plant the seeds of a new intention. And wow! Check out the cards that came out this week!
The first card for early in the week as the moon traverses through the sign of Cancer is the four of pentacles. Some of you may have a goal in mind that requires that you have some money set aside. Take some time to come up with a realistic budget. Be mindful of your spending, but don’t go to extremes by becoming “penny wise and dollar foolish”. Stay up to date on maintenance, repairs, etc. and invest wisely on the small things that you enjoy that allow you to be mentally fresh and healthy.
For others of you, this card may be a message that it is time to let something go. Since the moon is in cancer, perhaps this is something on an emotional level, that you can release so that you are able to move forward. You may have things around your home that you can sell for extra cash, or a few of you may decide that you are ready to sell the home itself. Others of you may have an underutilized talent or skill that has the potential to generate extra income. With the Ace of Wands and The Magician as the following two cards in this reading, it would appear that there is something exciting waiting in the wings for you!
The middle of week, the moon is in the sign of Leo. Fiery emotions, inspiration and creative ideas flow in! The Ace of Wands upright is a positive sign. Release those inner doubts. Have courage and faith in yourself! This is the first step to taking action on something that you want to manifest in your life. This card is lighting a fire under your behind, it’s time to get motivated!
For the end of the week, we have the Magician! This is an interesting card as the waning moon travels through the sign of Virgo, and remains in Virgo for the new moon. Something lost, something gained perhaps? The Magician is an archetype that represents initiating a plan of action to turn an idea into reality. This is powerful stuff, you must let go of distractions in order to fully focus on your intention. Gather your resources and begin the process of constructing an outline or organizing a plan. The timing is perfect to align your intention with the upcoming new moon in industrious Virgo!
If you are starting something new, these cards would indicate keeping it to yourself for the time being. Only those that are an integral part of the plan, those that are helping you, should be included. Protect your idea, plan or dream, by not dispersing the energy of it before it has a chance to form. Look closely at the image of The Magician. Do you notice that he has his mouth closed? Silence is golden.
If you want to tap into the energy of this reading, a few crystals that I would recommend are: Citrine, carnelian, aquamarine, tiger eye, pyrite, garnet, malachite, green aventurine, black obsidian and agate. If you are making a grid, I would recommend the addition of clear quartz points to connect with The Magician's energy to amplify the intentions.
Have a great week everyone!
So, we are in the aftermath of the recent powerful Super Full Moon in Aquarius, and now the moon is just beginning its waning (reducing) phase traveling primarily through the signs of Taurus and Gemini.
At the beginning of the week, we have the eight of swords reversed. Let’s be honest. We’ve all been here. Sometimes life gets rough and it gets the better of us. We can feel stuck, depressed, trapped. But look closely at this card. I love the artist’s interpretation of the reversed eight of swords in the Light Seers Tarot. We are witnessing the moment wherein she realizes who she is. The bonds are broken, the blindfold is off, and she is just about to rise up off her knees. A shift in perspective makes all the difference. If this is you, I’m cheering you on! The only way to go from here is up!
Mid-week, we have the Wheel of Fortune upright! Your mental shift earlier in the week pays off! This has freed up space for the Universe to bring in some good things! Stay open as the energies are influx. Literally, when the Wheel of Fortune is upright, anything could happen! You may get a new job, raise or promotion, begin a new project, experience a renewed sense of faith, health or confidence, receive good news, have a download of creative ideas, or perhaps a legal matter is finally concluded. Look at the images in the first two cards. This is a big shift. Our lady goes from being on her knees, to a perfectly balanced yoga “tree pose” at the top of the Wheel of Fortune! What just happened? Your future just took a turn for the better.
At the end of the week, as the moon travels through the quick moving air sign of Gemini, we have another major arcana card, Justice. You might sign a contract, wrap up a negotiation, speak your truth, give notice at work, sell or buy a home, or perhaps karmic or court justice (or both as the case may be) is served. Two, out of the three cards here are major arcana. This can denote important life themes or that universal/cosmic energies are exerting their influence.
This could be a big week for some of you. There is an opportunity for a peaceful resolution or a positive change. Something is granted, rewarded or released. A challenge is overcome. Balance is restored.
The crystals I chose for this reading are kyanite and labradorite.
Kyanite is a potent stone that clears away negativity. Similar to selenite, it has the ability to cleanse and clear other crystals that are in close proximity to it. Its “broom” shape can be used in a symbolic “sweeping” motion to clear away negative or foggy energy from our auric field, other crystals, altar or space.
Labradorite is primarily used as a meditation and/or “psychic stone”, although it has many other properties as well. It aids us in connecting with higher realms of consciousnesses and the Akashic records. It promotes peace within our mind, body and emotions, allowing for restful sleep. Its protective nature helps to banish fears within our subconscious aiding us in releasing blocks so that we can access the full potential of our magick within. It inspires faith in oneself and trust in the divine process.
The dove feather symbolizes peace and restored faith. Have a great week everyone!
