This month’s New moon is extra special; it is a moon of inspiration, it has extra potency due to it being opposite Uranus and Mercury being in the North Mode. It is a time to ask for guidance, to open yourself up to the clues the Universe will send to you and make a note of them as they will lay the foundations for your future. The Uranus connection will also aid the releases of friendships and relationships which are becoming frayed or worn.
Here is a free release spell which I encourage everyone to use this New Moon, this really is the best time for you to release the things which are not serving your higher purpose. There may not be a time as perfect as now any time soon, and do not forget you are living in the now.
- On the New Moon, write down the things you want to release from your life. Write each one down on a separate piece of paper.
- Once you have written all the things you want to release down, go outside.
- When outside, take one piece of paper (only one at a time) and rip them to shreds whilst chanting; "free my being from harm, free my heart from sadness and release them to this wind".
- Keep doing this until all your pieces of paper have been released to the Earth and wind, carried away from you.
If you would like help with releasing and receiving guidance, here is something that can help you.
The next Full Moon on 29th August is a Super Moon. This moon is in the sign of Pisces and this sign is strongly linked with deep emotions. Whether you are a Pisces or not Saturday’s full moon will create unsettled emotions. Relax and look at the cards, choose a card and then read the guidance for that card which will aid you through the next week.
If you chose Card 1
This moon will encourage you to look within yourself for the answers, everything that you need to now is lodged in your higher self and this weekend you will have the prime chance to access this for yourself. Still your mind, allow yourself to be at peace with your life and then monitor your thoughts or imagination. You will find the answers appear right there and then.
If you chose card 2
If you chose this card then you will be feeling on edge, you will be looking at everything which is going on around you in detail, you may even feel a little as though the world is against you. Try not to give into these feelings, it is just the moon’s energy and it will pass soon, should you act on impulse you may regret it in the future. You may be involved in a relationship with a challenging person but the best things in life are worth the extra effort, the rewards you will get will be amazing once you have shown you care enough.
If you chose card 3
If you chose this card then you are probably overloading yourself with your workload. This weekend you may begin to feel overwhelmed, a nasty feeling which can lead you to simply think I have had enough and not bothering to do anything! Try and prioritise your commitments and complete each task one at a time, this will allow you some freedom from your burdens and utilise this moon’s energy fully.
On July 31st there is a Blue Moon, this is the name given to the second full moon to fall within one calendar month. The Blue Moon also effects the weather, Farmers will have noticed this many months ago and if you live in the countryside you will have noticed the harvest has begun much earlier than usual. August will be wet, windy and have unseasonable meteorological events.
The term Blue Moon is considered to be a modern day popular term but the earliest record of the phrase Blue Moon is in The Oxford English Dictionary in 1528 this proverb is the entry:
“If they say the moon is blue
We must believe that it is true.”
A Blue Moon is a time for wishes and for truths, for when emotions are aired on the night of a Blue Moon they will remain the truth for a year to come. But, these emotions must be real, not imaginary or wishful thinking. Listen to what is being said to you on 31st July because what you hear will be the truth. It is also a very fortunate time, your luck will be better than usual.
Witches fly high on the Full Moon and on a Blue Moon they fly high but also see the truth in their own lives and in those of others. So, if you do not want to know the truth then do not ask on a Blue Moon but if you search for answers then a reading on Friday will allow you to see clearly.
