Tonight at 9pm EDT
I wanted to share this as it was a reading I pulled 2 yrs ago and I feel as we are approaching our harvest time of the year it is beneficial.
I am really not surprised I picked this card, seeing that the Ritual of Mirrors I will be conducting is happening soon. Mirrors are so commonly used, we really have forgotten the magical uses of them. Mirrors do one magical thing that many do not truly grasped, they reflect the truth. As the heron stands at the gate awaiting the initiate, The Dark Woman of Knowledge awaits to take us on our spiritual journey to the Otherworld. Here, just like Arthur found deep healing on the Isle of Avalon, we too shall experience this healing of our deep wounds. This meditation card is also known as the “dark night of the soul”, one where a new perspective is taken. The word patience comes up, and it is definitely not a word I like to hear. The card is telling me that it is time to just allow and not force. There are things that unfold over time. This is definitely an energy of change, and maybe that is the resistance here….change. As we sojourn to the Otherworld for initiation, we know consciously that when we come back, we will not be the same. We tend to let the mundane world foul us with its false sense of securities, we get so bogged down with that stagnant energy. It’s almost a loosing of one’s Soul.
In this moment, in this time, it is time for us to step back and allow. It is time to abandon the old thought patterns, the way things “ought to be”, turning the table to see the different side. If we take on challenges as hard lessons, we receive them as such; but if we look at challenges as great opportunities, magic will happen. The Goddess doesnt require a sacrifice, but with change sacrifices are often made. In order to have better, we must do better…sacrificing the old way. Here, we look deeply into the mirror at our own soul, and we are asked to strip away all that is not us. The crystal ball resembles the moon which lights up the shadows, exposing that which has been hidden. We like to think we are ready for this, but are we? Are we willing to leave behind that which is keeping us held back?
The journey is definitely beginning. The wise heron awaits us at the Gate. The Lady of the Lake beckons us…calling our name…singing the song of our Soul. It is time for us to go drink her mystical waters and begin our path with the Dark Woman of Knowledge.
I hear her…..do you?

Happy Capricorn Full Moon and partial Lunar eclipse!
Yes, it’s not just Mercury giving us problems, we are also working with the energy of 2 eclipses this month. There is much more going on, but let’s cover this Lunar energy first.
Our heavens are very active at this time, and I am just going to say this now…July is very much an “in your face” time energy.
We are preparing for our full moon that will be on the 16th of July. And this will add some more intense energy..highly emotional as well.
On July 16, 2019, we will have a full moon in Capricorn at 5:38 pm, 2:38 pm pt, and 10:38 pm for those of you in London, England time zone.
Now a full moon is when the moon is directly opposite the sun, so the sun is able to really light the moon up…but this time there will be a bit different. The full moon will also be a partial lunar eclipse. So what does that mean? A Lunar eclipse is when the moon passes directly behind Earth and into its shadow. This occurs when the sun, earth, and moon are inexact or very close alignment.
This lunar eclipse will be partial, so it will not blacken the moon completely…but the energy is still going to be intense. The full moon is when shadows come to light. With the Sun in Cancer and the moon in Capricorn, we will have a chance to bring some emotional harmony back into all of our relationships.
The partial lunar eclipse will give us an opportunity to reset our emotions/feelings. Which is very much needed at this time. We can have bottled up feelings, and we need to express them healthfully. Emotions will be high, so respond don’t react. This moon, it will be essential for us to be very conscious of our own energy, and to master our own energy.
Our thoughts are very important at this time. Remember, energy goes wherever you are focusing.
Many seem to not completely understand how it works. Energy is energy, just like astrology, it is neither bad or good…it is what it is until we apply our perception to it. We have to remember that wherever we put our energy, it will be magnified; whatever you are focused on, it will grab the attention of energy and we’ll get more of it. Energy follows attention! We have to become masters of our own energy in order to create what we want to create. We really need to be aware of where we are placing our energy, which will require discipline for us.
The Solar eclipse took place with our North Node, and it was solar, so we were jolted forward into our future destiny and offered a great opportunity. But this eclipse will be lunar and will take place in our South Node (remember the South Node represents our past, the energy we are coming from), the message of allowing the old to break away. This moon is a super full moon…and it can shine the light on things that you didn’t see or know. This is a perfect time to let go of things (the old things), especially when Mercury Rx is added. This is really a good time to cut yourself free from things that have control over you and no longer serves you, and It is a culmination, so it allows one to see how you use your own power. Capricorn is about ‘law order’ Look into ourselves and see what is needing to be released, old habits, thoughts, and ideas those that have been ingrained in you. For this reading, Moon conj pluto there is a great deal of intensity with our emotions and feelings. Watch out for your temper…patience will be needed.
This energy is really requiring us to stay conscious, allow yourself to digest things, and it can be great time of completion and releasing.
Blessed New Moon in Cancer every one. We are at a new cycle, so it’s time to plant son seeds.
This new moon will be accompanied by a total solar eclipse all taking place in Cancer. So what does this mean physically?
Well this new moon will be similar to a real new moon, as the moon will pass between the Earth and Sun; except the solar eclipse will bring about a stronger energy because the moon will in fact darken the sun. we experience day, night, and day within mins. And this one will be a total solar eclipse meaning the moon will completely cover the sun, or will darken the sun, blocking our view. Remember that new moon represent a new moon cycle, and the energy will last 4 weeks, while the energy of the solar eclipse will last about 6 months.
When I look at our celestial events, I often wonder what our ancient ancestors thought of this, and how they viewed it. Today many of us are in awe of it. We want to get out and experience the energy. We want to see it happen, to experience this magnificent event between our sun and moon. But would it surprise you to know that in fact the ancients would hide in their homes or other dwellings to not be in its direct visibility. They felt it was a time when the veil between the worlds were very thin, and They actually saw them as a feared astrological/astronomical events. To them it was very unsettling as they witnessed this not truly knowing what was going on. To them, solar eclipses they felt it was a change of power.
The moon and sun meeting bring us many opportunities, and can be a fresh start for many..one that will last into the future. It is a good time to leave behind bad habits, leave behind toxic things in your life. It gives you an opportunity to create your future in new inventive ways. But for our ancients, this was something to not be witnessed.
Now these energies can be felt 6 mos after the eclipse takes place. So, this solar eclipse will be connecting us to the last solar eclipse, which was a partial one, that took place on January 6th of this year. It was from Northeast Asia and the north pacific at 8:42pm est, 5:42 pacific time. This placement was at 15 degrees of Capricorn.
Now for this one, which is a total eclipse, it will take place at 3:16 pm est, 12:16pm cst, and 8:16pm UK time. It will be at 10 degrees and 37 seconds, so I am going to round that up to 11 degrees of Cancer. This is totally different energy. This energy is connecting us to our North node at 17 degrees Cancer and its opposition with the south node at 17 degrees of Capricorn. These are totally different energies, as they represent different energies. Capricorn is earth, Cancer is water. Law and order and nurturing mother energy. Power versus emotion…and we are looking for the harmony within it; acknowledging the unconditional love with the need of boundaries which enable us to protect that which we love. During my meditation with this reading, I was shown the process that in order to experience the energy of the Great Goddess, you must first pass through the gates of the Great God.
So this is showing us that there is a need of boundaries so that ALL are protected.
So, in essence Capricorn is our work and cancer is home.
Cancer is a cardinal sign, as it is the beginning of a new season. So this is us tapping into our feelings, our emotions, that we have within our heart, it is going within personally. This is an inward motion, it is our emotional body. This is the energy of beginning anew, starting something new that is more on our inner emotional Self. With the north node in Cancer as well, so this is what we are moving toward. The moon is our emotional self, it is our daily needs and in Cancer (the moons home placement) this is highlighting the feeling of coming home, your sanctuary. This could manifest itself into something that we have been holding in emotionally for a long while coming to the surface.
This is a change to a place that you are more comfortable, something that is emotionally comfortable and satisfying. And with it the opposite Capricorn, we are experiencing a need to satisfy what is necessary and needed in your life, for your emotional and physical happiness with boundaries…meaning protecting that which is sacred unto you.
This energy will have us looking at what is necessary and needed in your life. With our south node in Capricorn, we are releasing an old pattern of how we viewed this as well. This changing of the tides can bring us a new meaning of our needs, even us defining our life differently, one that is in more harmony of who we are. This does connect us to our ancestors, you could be bringing back the old ways of your ancestors. For example, you may be in a job that your parent was in…and their parents and so on. Or maybe you live in your hometown where your family is at, and it is expected for you to stay there and your not happy. This unhappiness within you has maybe made you bitter, resentful…and this emotional turmoil could be brought to the surface at this time. This eclipse/new moon energy is one of listening to your intuition and trusting our Self. This energy can also have us looking into our ancestors ways, maybe going back to what our ancestors did; their gifts and skills. Eclipses are BIG change, and this time represents a grand cycle ending. This change will be on of honoring what we feel is right for us, it is following our personal nature. Saturn is setting in Capricorn as well and will form a square with the new moon/solar eclipse, along with the South Node, will remind us that life happens in a process as well. And while we may want to jump forward quickly, we have to allow the path to unfold before us. We cant rush forward half cocked, there is a certain process that will need to take place

Eclipses say “the king must die”. It is an ending of one ruling and a beginning of another.
I wish you all a blessed New Moon and Solar Eclipse in Cancer. Emotions will be high…ground, ground, ground!
This past week we’ve had some solar storms that ended on Thursday. When the energy from this storm hits Earth it can have us feeling symptoms of Stress, anxiety, sleepiness, sleeplessness, body aches, foggy headedness, extra sensitivity, nightmares, vivid dreams, and your Intuition could be heightened. Its important to make sure you are practicing self care and keeping yourself hydrated, eating healthy foods, and getting enough rest. When you are able, put yourself in a soothing environment and soothing sounds.
To better understand this full moon, let’s look back at the New Moon in Gemini at the beginning of June that gave us a fresh new-start, positive energy. A new moon represents a new moon cycle, and as we have progressed into this month there will be more of an energetic building. This moon will have some pretty important aspects that will really set the energy for the full moon on the 17th, then leading to the Summer Solstice on the 21st, which is also the day when the sun moves into the astrological sign of Cancer.
On June 16th Jupiter will form a square with Neptune and then on the 18th Saturn will form a sextile (that’s harmonizing energy) with Jupiter.
And in between these aspects will be our full moon in the freedom loving sign of Sagittarius. This full moon is going to be important as it represents the last moon phase of the current eclipse cycle that began with the January 5th solar eclipse.
And this moon with lead us into July where we will have 2 eclipses. Now for this full moon it will be on June 17th in the astrological sign of Sagittarius at 1:31 am pt, 431am et, and 931am UK time. Sagittarius is known as our freedom loving sign. It’s symbol is that of the archer or bow and arrow, it is the mythical centaur (a half human and half horse, who is one of higher intelligence, and can represent a bridge between Earth and heaven. Sagittarius is very optimistic, and being its planet is Jupiter, this is a very lucky sign (as jupiter is the planet of fortune). This is adventurous energy, it is open-minded, and very serene. But due to the freedom this signs craves, this energy doesn’t vibe well in commitments, and can be careless. There is an energy of restlessness here as well, wanting to move forward to the next adventure.
Now I normally love the energy of Sagittarians, I have a daughter that is a sagittarius, as they have a certain charm about them. It is a fire sign, so that need for experience is heightened, as well as being in that energy of falling in love.
This is the energy adaptability, and one of being able to envision great futures. Now this moon will have us wanting to reach high beyond the limits and above all, to enjoy one’s self. This is a renewal of high energy, and this is great as we move to Midsummer, the Summer Solstice on the 21st.
Remember full moon are when the Moon (Mother energy) is opposite the Sun (father energy) so there will be a light shined on those things that are in the dark. This could be something that you didn’t want to see but need to see. This moon will definitely light us up energetically and have us pushing forward for that next adventure. But we have to be careful, as Sagittarian energy can push its luck.
The arrow symbology in this sign is very important as it is hinting at you to aim your focus when the centaur takes his bow and pulls back his arrow he is taking aim. Sure be open to possibilities, but you need to focus your energy for the absolute best results.
For relationships, this energy will have you wanting true authentic relationships, no games nor lies, just straight realness. This energy will give us a thirst for learning to further our knowledge. This is a good moon for philosophical vision, writers and artists.
Now these 2 aspects that we will be happening. When Jupiter forms his square with Neptune, this will take us back to the energy expression of last January. This can make us have higher expectations of others and especially ourselves. Jupiter is all about expansions and Neptune has that fantastical energy. This is very optimistic energy as well, so you can be disillusioned at this time. This is energy that will have you wanting to avoid confrontation, you can be very restless and feel dissatisfied and can exaggerate things that emotionally charged you. This could also lead to arguments can be taken out of context and things could blow up. This energy can also be meandering type energy, but when Saturn sextiles Jupiter Father Time will open our eyes. We will be reminded of the boundaries that we have….our responsibilities to self and others. This double dose of Jupiter energy can lead us to unrealistic ventures and unrealistic dreams but on the flip side, this can really be a time of great inspiration. Saturn will help us understand that things must unfold on their own. This sextile between saturn and neptune can be an energy of learning family traditions and customs. You could be bringing back your families traditions, bringing back beliefs of your family…your ancestors. This is philosophies as well. This can be a time where you find yourself devoted to your calling, wanting to have your dreams manifest. This could be a time that you could discover your soul’s calling or finding your sense of purpose.
Saturn and Pluto are still in Capricorn and with Uranus in Taurus so we will not have too much shake up energy, and this will give us enough grounding energy to help keep us grounded. 8 hours after the full moon in sagittarius, the moon will be moving into Capricorn which is nice energy to ground our desires, but when a sign is in its latter degrees it is a bit raw and will soon be experiencing a transition as it will be moving into a different sign.
All in all, this is a full moon does have the energy to make your long term dreams come true.
This moon will be one of this years most powerful moons. As this is the last full moon before the up coming Solar Eclipse on July 2nd, that will also be a new moon. These energies will be deeply felt as this moon will align to our Galactic Center and will help us have a renewed sense of hope and faith that things will work out. We can be inspired by the energetic vibrations of infinite possibilities. It is time to leave behind all that doesn’t resonate with you anymore. You want to see the truth in matters and for some you will be able to discover your Soul’s purpose.
It’s time to leave the past in the past, as it is time to focus on the present and future.
Hope and trust is highlighted in this moon. We will be aided in determination as Mercury meets up with Mars and has a wonderful conversation reminding us, and assisting us in directing all of our inner power in creating and building something productive.
Remember in order to create something new, the old must break away. The old fades so the new can grow. This is our Wheel of the Year, remember change of our only constant.
For this moon choose wisely where you desire to put your intention and energy. Carl Jung stated “Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.
