Coming up after eclipse season…

Since we just came off of a weekend with a full lunar eclipse, our third one of the season, I decided to pull some cards from the Moonology deck for the week ahead.

The reason I did this is because I felt with so much energy in motion right now that maybe we all could use a little extra help.

As I mentioned in my What to expect for July of 2020 report, the Tower card will be making its debut anytime now.

Let’s begin…

Your commitment is being tested – First Quarter Moon

What struck me initially about this card is the light of the half moon shining through an opening in the clouds. It’s almost like the moon made the clouds disperse so that it could shine it’s light.

This card says that you can move clouds out of your way in order to shine your own light in your life. It’s one of those things where if you believe it you can make it happen.

Being that this card is a first quarter moon, it’s directly in between the new moon and the full moon so essentially it’s at the halfway point. So what you need to do is believe in yourself and believe in your dreams and take the steps necessary to make it happen…when the time is right.

Surrender to the Divine – Full Moon

The obvious part of this card is the big and bright full moon. It says to surrender to the divine. This means that you must trust in the process. Being that this card is a full moon it’s also a time to release all of that which no longer serves you.

It’s a card about letting go. Quit trying to make things happen. Allow the Universe to step in and assist you by opening up to their guidance.

This card can bring unexpected change as it’s also a turning point. It can deliver answers that you were looking for previously.

But be forewarned, because the heightened energies of any full moon can make you extra sensitive. That’s also a time when emotions can run high and deep. I know I find myself highly energized around the full moon.

Expect powerful change – New Moon Eclipse

And of course the first thing that you notice about this new moon eclipse card is the eclipse and the light shining out from behind it. This card says expect powerful change. Which is interesting that it is right next to the full moon card…it’s simply more confirmation of what’s going on this month.

The booklet says ” this is a card of beginnings and there are powerful energies at work. But be prepared: it could be quite a ride, and events now could even be jarring and uncomfortable.

I’m a firm believer that everything happens for a reason and this card definitely is pointing to that. The events that unfold this week and likely into the weeks ahead will be very important towards your life purpose.

This card, to me, is also confirmation that the Tower card is already in play behind the scenes about to make its way to the surface.

From the booklet:

The teaching

New moon eclipses are among the most exciting astrological events. They herald a complete change of pace. It’s as though you’re headed in one direction, probably being guided by your ego, and then here comes the divine – the Goddess, or Spirit – to turn you instead to face the direction you actually need to go. Regardless of whether or not there’s a new moon eclipse happening when you pull this card, it’s a powerful affirmation of positive turnarounds.

To sum it all up, we are in a seriously powerful energetic time. So don’t be surprised if life goes sideways this month. And when it does, know that it’s simply to get you on the right path and to put you in the direction that’s in alignment with your soul. Perhaps it’s a bit of a much needed course correction.

There is nothing to fear unless of course you are afraid of change. But change is good, change brings balance even if it appears chaotic at first.

What we are heading into is necessary, not just for you but for those around you and for those out in the world.

So take a deep breath and get some rest. Everything is exactly as it should be. You are doing exactly what you’re supposed to be doing. And be sure to have a journal ready to take notes and to hash out how you feel.

  1. Great points my friend! Ah, the energy for me from Thursday to Sunday was brutal. I finally felt some relief late yesterday. So much being drawn out, painful to look at, another level of forgiveness and integration. All to let go of fear and embrace a deeper love. I feel this is the meaning gor me in all events comically related. They pop up to remind d me, I’m not in control, flow either Divine and trust. I’ve experienced so many shifts as of late, at times I feel disjointed and confused until I can be still and go within. That, “don’t know if I’m comin or goin” feeling leaves and I settle back into peace.
    I feel July is going to be a turning point both personally and collectively 💗🌺🕊

    1. I’m glad you were able to find some relief. Yes the energy has been rough. There is so much going on astrologically, collectively and universally. I feel that once Mercury goes Direct is when we’ll finally be able to go right side up. I do understand that feeling of not knowing if you’re coming or going. I’ve had many things pop up to be released….all for whatever is coming. I feel a big shift is occurring and we’re about to see the results of that. And it’s like you said, all to let go of fear and embrace love because that’s why we’re here…to bring love to a planet that desperately needs it. Thank you for sharing your experiences. It helps me to know how people are being affected by the energies. 🤗❣️
