Amethyst also helps relieve tension, stress, psychological pain and eases headache. It also alleviates grief and sadness, and dispels fear, anger and anxiety.

Working With The Moon

Just like the Moon affects the ocean’s tides, the Moon’s waxing and waning also affects our lives. Working with the phases of the Moon is a simple and practical, and to add to  your everyday life.

Not only do I read tarot but I also work with the moon phases. This is something that I have been doing for a couple of months now and I enjoy adding it to my life along with tarot. I have found this to be helpful with setting goals and staying on track with self-care. Some books that I recommend reading about the moon phases and working with the moon are Lunur Abundance and Moonology.

 

NEW MOON | FRESH START

The new moon represents the menstrual cycle. Think of the new moon as a fresh start, and a time when you can regain your strength to begin again. The themes surrounding the new moon are new beginnings, fresh starts, and clean slates.

Setting a clear intentions during a New Moon is the time to do it. You can use this time for a clean slate. Recharging under the energy of this new moon and mentally throw all unwanted thoughts away.

To do this, it’s best to unplug and give yourself  alone time. As the moon turns dark, turn away from the draining energy of others. Don’t feel bad for canceling plans or not wanting to call, text, or be around anyone. Time to yourself is a good way to make the most of the new moon.

 

WAXING MOON |  ACTION

Because the first quarter moon occurs a week after the new moon, we normally  feel some sort of obstacles. If you set intentions during the new moon, expect to experienced challenges towards your goals.  The themes surrounding this moon are challenges, decisions, and action.

Do not lose your head when things come out of nowhere. Flexibility is the best way to handle this moon phase. Keep the intentions you set during the new moon in your mind

The best way to start acting on them is to keep a to-do list and a journal. There should be a physical representation of you writing and acting out your intentions. Write yourself a daily to-do list and cross off things as you complete them.

 

FULL MOON | HARVEST

The first full moon in September, is when farmers traditionally harvest their crops. This is the time you should be reaping the benefits of the intentions you had set during the new moon.

During this moon phase this is a powerful time to visualize your intentions by using the energy of the Full Moon.

You will see these benefits in the form of new opportunities or even as results from the hard work done the previous week. Make sure you’re prepared and open to receiving these.

 

WANING MOON | LETTING GO

The themes surrounding this moon are release, letting go, and forgiveness. As the moon decreases in size, you should to be ready to let go of stuff, all grudges and anger. Purging  yourself to be able to receive the new intentions you will set again during the next new moon.

A great practice during this moon is a cleanse. Clean out your home, your closet, your relationships, your computer and old habits. Look at anything that’s no longer has a purpose to you and get rid of it. Pay close  attention to the unnecessary emotional and physical clutter that you my have during past cycle and rid yourself of it.

Me personally I do a monthly purge and get rid of things I held on to for a some reason in the past. Afterwards it feels great to let all of that go.

I hope you enjoyed reading this!

Setting Intentions With The New Moon

A new moon symbolizes new beginnings and new intentions! New Moon Energy can be very powerful. Tapping into this energy can also support your dreams and desires. We can harness the energy of the new moon to fulfill our visions and make our desires come true by setting new intentions.

This is the perfect time to start fresh! You can also use the energy of a new moon to achieve new goals or to start a new project. Anytime during a new moon, take this time to reflect back on any goals you may have had in the past and set new ones for yourself.

Do not ask for too much, keep your list simple and realistic with maybe no more than 10 goals.

THE MOON PHASES

Each phase has its own energy and it’s different for everyone.

Below is a list of Moon phases, and the energy they create.

  • New Moon: New beginnings & fresh starts.
  • Waxing Moon: Building, accomplishments, creativity, growth and learning, positive transformation
  • Full Moon: Abundance, harvest, wish-fulfillment, manifesting desires, sexuality, achieving all dreams, protection
  • Waning Moon: Cleansing, releasing, shedding old patterns,
  • Dark Moon: Rest, Peace, deep wisdom, divination,

 INTENTIONS WITH THE NEW MOON:

Create a sacred place.
This can be an altar, desk, or corner in your home. Create a little area that is beautiful and reserved for your spiritual practices.This can be as elaborate or as simple as you want it to be. Make a space that makes you feel inspired & grounded.

Clear the space.

You can use sage a feather or a flame to clear the space you are working in.

Make a list.
I suggest writing them down and then speaking them loudly, by physically speaking them you symbolize your intention to manifest any your goals you have. Be clear with your intentions. Your intentions must not be focused on other people, you cannot change others.

New Moon Meditation.
When your list is complete spend 10-15 minutes meditating on it.

Close out the ritual.
Once your meditation is over, put your new moon intention list away until next month where you can go over it to see what has manifested. When an item on your lists becomes real thank the universe.

 

 

My Favorite Tarot & Oracle Decks

As you know I use tarot in my life and I have for a while now. Within the last year,  I use a mixture of tarot, oracle and affirmation cards. Within in the last 4 years I bought my first oracle deck and last year I bought my first affrimation deck and over the last few years have added more since. I find that some them are more intuned, stronger reading or clearer messages then others but they all do the same job. I wanted to share some of the  decks that I reach for a lot.

Tarot Cards

Oceanic TarotDSCN2827

The Oceanic Tarot is my favorite and to think I wasn’t sure about it when I first bought it. But after using it more and more it turns out I really like it and is one that I reach for the most for. I really like that it has a keyword on the card, which is nice if im doing a quick reading.

ShadowscapeMy Favorite Tarot & Oracle Decks

Shadowscapes Tarot was one of my first decks I started out with and I love the artwork in this deck. This deck loves to give me themes whenever I do a reading with it. Like getting the empress card for almost two months straight in almost any reading I did and damn did I shuffle and shuffle and shuffle, and she still kept popping up.  This deck was a gift from my mom and I have the app version on my phone, which sometime I will use if im on the go.

Oracle Cards

Postcards From Spirit

My Favorite Tarot & Oracle Decks

Postcards from Spirit I thought this deck was super unusual and I had to buy. I haven’t seen anything like it really before and very happy that I added it to my collection. The cards are just beautiful and so are the messages on them.

Angelarium Oracle of EmantionsMy Favorite Tarot & Oracle Decks

Angelarium: Oracle of Emanations is another one of my favorites. I bought this one last year as a pre-order and im so happy I did. I wanted an angel deck but not your ordinary angel deck and this is it. The artwork is amazing! When I read for my husband he prefers this deck and we get very clear readings anytime I use it.

Oracle Of VisionsMy Favorite Tarot & Oracle Decks

Oracle of Visions is hands down my favorite Oracle deck. I’m seriously thinking of buying a backup of this deck because I love this one so much and because of the wear and tear it’s getting. This deck does not sugar coat anything, there’s no way of hiding anything from it. It will know, I have had moments of thinking, well geez my life has been a lie.   I also have the app version for this one on my phone.

Affirmation Cards

The Universe Has Your Backfullsizeoutput_1c3b

The Universe Has Your Back is one that I bought last year because I was seeing it a lot on Facebook groups and on Amazon, which made me want them even more. I really enjoy  these cards a lot. I also have most of  Gabrielle Bernstein books which I also enjoy a lot, I think im missing 2 of her books so far.  For me I find that this deck works well with Oracle of Visions and the Oceanic.
