Bringing in the New Moon + Solar Eclipse in Cancer! We are in eclipse season and I was going to just do readings on each Full Moon but I couldn't pass up the New Moon Solar Eclipse! When I was on Patreon, I would share mini Elemental Tarotscope readings on each New and Full Moon. They were really fun for me to do and others found them very helpful in directing their energy and planning out their next cycle.
How this works: I pull 4 cards - one for each element group. Some people tend to favor their Moon sign more than their Sun sign, or some resonate best with their Rising Sign - or all three! It's up to you to decide on which you want to read.
Example: I'm a Sun in Gemini and I resonate deeply with my Sun sign so I'll read the card pulled for Air signs. I'm also a Moon in Scorpio, so I can choose to read the card pulled for the Water signs as well if I like...
I'm using the Cosmos Tarot & Oracle deck for these, I've been meaning to work more with this deck and it feels really good for moon and astro styled readings! If you are familiar with this deck, you will know that it comes as a set and I have chosen to combine mine and tend to read it more like an oracle than tarot exclusively.
The New Moon in Cancer + Solar Eclipse... I'm no expert when it comes to astrology so I stick to the basics of what I do understand and know, however I highly recommend The Tarot Lady for a more in depth look at what's going on in the sky above us! Eclipses bring change and shifts, while Cancer surrounds emotions. This is deemed to be a pretty intense moon and already it's playing out to be just that! This moon is also centered around family and people we are closest to, so be kind to those you love - however, it's a perfect time to do some cord cutting and cutting off bad relationships! If people are causing harm, it will be seen!
Taurus - Virgo - Capricorn
Giving back to our communities right now can be very beneficial and is much needed! With that being said, being part of an active community can also be rewarding for yourself, as you can gain a big insight through the eyes of others. Earth signs you are being asked to give back, listen, and cooperate in your community and in your groups. Bring awareness, bring love, and above all, bring respect towards one another. There is so much that can benefit when we are part of a community that is diverse, it builds strength - not just for others but for yourself. Connection with those around you is sometimes what we need to get through the toughest of times, knowing that you are not alone and are also able to be the shoulder for someone else.
Gemini - Libra - Aquarius
Hello Air signs, Mars says lets get a move on and push yourself! This is a very active and hands on card. You are being asked to create, get your hands dirty, and make something happen! If you have any doubts, know that you can indeed do hard things! This is perfect timing to take an aggressive approach to getting what you want, but please, don't be a dick about it. You can still tap into your masculinity without it being toxic, we have far too much of that in our waters right now. This energy isn't just about writing down idea's or typing up a rough draft, it's more about the labor involved - heavy research that you may have been avoiding, actually fixing your car so that you can go out and take photographs for a project, taking a class and doing the homework... not just skimming through the highlighted text or watching a YouTube video. It's about really putting in the work to get you closer to your goals, or better yet, reaching those goals - fuck "getting closer" let's aim to hit these goals right now! Put on your armor and dive head first!
Aries - Leo - Sagittarius
This card is similar to the Death card in tarot, at least it is for me, but it's more than that. It's more than just making some changes, it's about progressing with those said changes. Emerging out stronger, more whole, and more capable than before. In the book, it mentions the child growing stronger than the parent. This is the energy I feel that is tied into this card - really strong growth! But, with changes and progress comes more responsibility. If you are indeed wanting to grow and evolve, know that more power will be handed to you so be sure that you are ready and willing to take that on. You can't just be the boss and expect everyone else to make the decisions for you, it's time to step up and call the shots! If you can believe it, you can achieve it... as cheesy as that sounds, it's true. If you don't think you can handle more tasks or responsibility, admit it and don't fake it. It's ok if you're not ready, but don't pretend that you are. You can indeed still make small changes without going full force, but you can't keep inching that way forever.
Cancer - Scorpio - Pisces
The Sun - Scorpius
The Sun in general has been showing up a lot lately, both in person (hello, Arizona sun beating on my door) and in the cards. It speaks of intense passion that is guided by clarity, one that we can see for certain is there. In this card I see risks being taken, led by ambition and fearlessness. This card is tightly tied to Scorpio, which is funny to see it show up here as Scorpio is indeed a Water sign. Whether you are led by deep emotions or just eagerness to get involved, check in with yourself to see if you are led out of spite or out of good intent. It's too easy to let emotions get to the best of us, often times we are fueled to help others or are affected through the acts of others, but it's best not to react when these situations pop up. These conditions can get heated quickly and escalade in a direction that you may have not wanted or prepared for. It's best to use your energy for more favorable conditions rather than harm, let the Eclipse shine the light on those who are hiding in the shadows.
Any plans for this Moon? I'd love to hear, leave a comment!
