The moon continues to increase its frequency as it travels through the signs of Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces this week, ending its waxing cycle with the full moon in the sign of mysterious Pisces on Saturday. The full moon occurs the day after Mercury goes into retrograde. A full moon and mercury retrograde so close together can certainly pack a “one-two punch”, which can catch us off guard. But this cosmic energy is being nicely balanced with both the Sun and Venus in the practical earth sign of Virgo. Slow down, stay calm and you’ll be fine. Let’s get to the reading…
Moon in Capricorn: Two of swords. At the beginning of the week, it would seem that some of you are at a crossroads of some sort resulting in a temporary stalemate. There are two options, but which one is correct? You may seek or receive advice from trusted source(s), but ultimately it is your decision. This will not go away on its own, it could even become more difficult as time goes on. So, a plan of action or a choice will be necessary. It is important that YOU make the decision to avoid having someone or a circumstance make it for you. You got this. Find a quiet space without distractions so you can think clearly. Drop into your heart space and tune into your intuition. Put your psychic antennas up, higher guidance is available if you ask for it.
Moon in Aquarius: The Moon. Things may get a little darker towards the middle of the week as the energies progress from the two of swords to The Moon. Shadow and light, dreams, illusions, lies, truth. The Moon in Aquarius can be strange indeed, and let’s not forget we have Mercury Retrograde peeking around the corner! Texts and emails should be proofread more than once before sending. Conversations and/or oral agreements should be followed up in writing to avoid misunderstandings. Trust your instincts, if something appears “off” make a note of it. Do yourself a favor and keep idle chit chat to a minimum this week, especially at work. The potential is there for you or maybe someone else, to inadvertently overshare. As well, do not partake in any kind of gossip or drama, as it could escalate quickly. Look at the image in this card. See how the crawfish is following the path laid out before it? My advice to you is along those same lines. Stay in your own lane as much as possible. You'll be glad you did!
Moon in Pisces: The Sun reversed. The Sun is still the sun, but when it is in the reversed position, it indicates there could be a few clouds in the forecast. I feel the end of the week is when a decision, truth or information may come to light. It may not be exactly the outcome that you would have preferred, but you are still A-okay. Things are still on track, but there may be a delay. With Mercury retrograde fresh and active, perhaps something needs to be re-evaluated or reviewed again before proceeding. The Sun, whether upright or reversed is a positive sign. You end the week, much more savvy and confident than when you started.
If you do any type of divination this week, I recommend a thorough energetic cleansing of your tools and space. One way is to smudge with sage, palo santo, sweetgrass, or a custom prepared herb blend. Other herbs that are known for their protective and cleansing properties are hyssop, agrimony, rosemary, mugwort, lavender, angelica. Loose blends can be burned in a smudging bowl or cauldron.
If you are unable to smudge with smoke, essential oil sprays can be used.
Sound clearing with sound bowls, bells or tingshas are also an excellent way to cleanse and clear a space and everything within it. This method works beautifully with crystals!
