NEW MOON:JULY 13, 2018|FULL MOON: JULY 27, 2018
**Cards read as Theme|New Moon|Full Moon|. For a deeper reading, look for your Sun/Moon/Rising + Venus signs**
Princess of Cups|The Devil|The Blasted Tower: This is your month to swim deep in your healing and intuitive waters. Use the Princess of Cups energy, to embrace the new creative beginnings presented to you. You may be feeling youthful and inspired, and more willing to express and explore yourself emotionally. Flow with it. There may also be messages flowing to you by way of loved ones or Spirit. Tune into your psychic channels, as these messages will lead to deeper levels of transformation. With your New Moon intentions, focus on welcoming in a closer connection with your shadow side. The Devil often stirs up discomfort in a reading, but I feel for you Cancer, that it is necessary to see what lies in the murky waters of your subconscious. There is Power in knowing yourself on all levels, and much to be gained by using that knowledge to break free from detrimental ties. As the Full Moon energy rolls in, focus your intentions toward creating radical shift in your life. The Tower points to an awakening that comes from an unexpected change in your realm. For you Cancer, the change will have come from your work with the New Moon energy. As you flow through your month identifying the unhealthy bonds that need severing, use your new sense of power to call in a Spiritual breakdown of those energies. When in need of a boost of love and creativity, call on the Princess of Cups to pull you back into Self.
The Hanged Man|Ten of Pentacles|Six of Wands: Surrender will be your biggest ally this month Leo. The Hanged Man indicates a need to hang loose. Not give up, which I know the Leo heart could never do. Simply, wait. If you feel you’ve been flowing against rough waters, now is the time to flow WITH the current. With this new approach, you may realize those waters were carrying you to your desired destination all along. Release any illusion that you must be in control, or that Spirit is working against you. For your New Moon, focus your intentions toward building long-term success and gratification with the energy of the Ten of Pentacles. Move away from the idea that you must have it all now. Success built over time, will deliver much deeper satisfaction. Create a practical and precise plan for yourself, and trust that you’re being led to victory. With the Full Moon and the Six of Wands, focus your intentions toward releasing the current lack of confidence you have in yourself and your accomplishments. If you’re flowing from ego, and feeling like you’ve hit your plateau, let that go. Now is a time to humble yourself. Leo is a sign that loves to be in the spotlight. Your time is coming. For now, choose to celebrate yourself. Every accomplishment is worthy of celebration, even if you’re the only one cheering yourself on (although we all know you’re not ;))
King of Swords|The Sun|Ace of Pentacles: This month with the King of Swords, may deliver to you many revelations around the ways you’ve been using your logic and words. Your words are your minions, Virgo. What you speak and think, they go out into the World and make happen. How are you wielding this power? This is a month for clear thinking, and using your intellectual power to know better. When you know better, you flow better. Use the clarity that comes to you in July, to navigate a new path ahead. The Sun as your New Moon card, points to calling in warmth, success, and some fun in the Sun. The first half of the year may have been more on the serious side for you, and now it’s time to let your hair down. The Sun could also point to willing in the energy of Leo. Now may be the time for you to be bold and daring, and allow yourself to live more in the spotlight. For the Full Moon, you have the Ace of Pentacles. Use the energy of the Full Moon to release any hesitation toward taking opportunities that are presented to you. Rather than relying on your instincts, you seek to know the ins and outs of what’s ahead. Planning and foresight are necessary, but don’t get so stuck in the “what if’s”, and never act on the intention. The Ace of Pentacles also points to getting a grip on your finances. If your finances have been getting ahead of you, set some intentions to release any poor spending/saving habits you’ve noticed are holding you back.
Ace of Swords|Six of Cups|The Empress: July for you Libra, will be a month of breakthrough’s and clarity. The Ace of Swords wield’s the power of clear mental agility. If you’ve been feeling foggy, or flowing through a block, there may be some much-needed relief headed your way. As you flow through this month, hold it in your mind to speak and seek the truth. Be mindful and present, so that you don’t miss the ‘aha’ moment that’s heading your way. With your New Moon, focus your intentions toward welcoming in the assistance of your inner child. The Six of Cups brings you help from your past. There may be some gems buried in your memories, that could help trigger a breakthrough for you in the present. Spend time under the Moon, reflecting on any experiences or emotions that feel similar to cycles that you’ve repeated once before. When the Full Moon rolls in, call on the energy of The Empress. The Empress possesses the energy of fertility, creativity, and abundance. For you Libra, I feel this may also indicate some issues stemming from the Mother figure(s) in your life. Under the Full Moon, focus on releasing any blocks that are preventing you from flowing freely creatively, or blocks around your abundance. For those of you who resonate with the Mother energy of The Empress, allow yourself to release any hurt or trauma that stem from your relationship with the Mother figure(s) in your life.
Nine of Wands|Ten of Pentacles|The Empress: This month you have the influence of the Nine of Wands. July may be a test of faith for you Scorpio. Your goal, is to be courageous and remain persistent in the pursuit of your desires. Allow your emotions and intuition to guide you on path of your personal truth. The Nine of Wands reflects as the one last step you must take before finally reaching success. Keep pushing forward until you reach the finish line. For your New Moon intentions, you have the Ten of Pentacles. This is an energy of long-term financial success and security. Plant seeds under the Moon, to bring in opportunities that can help solidify the financial plans and changes you’ve put in place. The Ten of Pentacles also represents energy of tradition and your ancestors. Ancestor remembrance under the New Moon, could be immensely beneficial for you. Call on your ancestors to aid you in breaking any generational cycles that could be preventing you from achieving lasting financial security. With your Full Moon, focus on the energy of The Empress. Release any feelings of lack or indecision. If you feel that you’ve come to a creative block in your ability to manifest true abundance, The Empress will help you to turn your fortune around. Take time to listen to your inner psyche, as she may be showing you areas of your life where you feel discontent.
The Blasted Tower|Four of Swords|Three of Cups: July may flow with a few shake-ups for you Sagittarius. The Blasted Tower, points to a sudden shift in the foundations your ideals are built on. Although unexpected, these shifts aren’t to be feared. When the dust of your shake-up settles, you’ll see that it’s exactly what you needed and have been asking for. The Blasted Tower is influenced by Mars, the planet of action. As you’re flowing through the month, know that your motivation and movement, are making a big impact on what’s flowing on behind the scenes. Your New Moon influence is the Four of Swords. This card points to much-needed rest and relaxation. For you Sagittarius, this could mean calling in a mental vacation or period of recuperation. If it’s been a while since you’ve been able to take time to yourself, spend time under this Moon asking Spirit to bring in your much-needed relief. The Three of Cups points to possibly being secluded from your close circle of friends, or denying yourself opportunities to have some fun. With your Full Moon, spend time releasing any thoughts or feelings that you have to constantly be working. You’re the life of the party Sagittarius. It is more than okay to give in to your party energy once in a while. For some of you, this could also point to partying a bit TOO much, and not working enough. For you, use this Full Moon to create a balance in your work + party life.

King of Cups comes to help you mature in how you handle and perceive matters of the heart.

Ask Spirit to help you with feelings of being “stuck” emotionally and creatively.

The Moon|Fortitude|Knight of Swords: The Moon comes to illuminate all illusions and new paths available to you this month Taurus. This card represents your shadow self, and the shadow self of others. “Shadow” isn’t to be looked at in a negative light.
