A new moon will occur on the 26th of July. Stay tuned over the next week for practical tips on how to make the most of new moon energy to create a successful fulfilling month ahead.
Energy! Creativity! Action! So much to do. So much that could be created. With Mercury trine Neptune te creative possibilities are endless. However the Sun is square Mars, creating that "bull at a gate" energy. All of this planetary action could be the cause of your rushing excitement today. The warning here is to be cautious of rushing which may lead to accidents.
The four of cups is the tarot of the day. The message this card offers today is to take time and contemplate offers that are made to you. Sleep on it.
With the moon entering Taurus later tonight you will be able to gather all of that excess energy and calm it.
This full moon weekend brings the promise of fulfillment for that which was started at the new moon, two weeks ago.This full moon is the first of a set of 3 consecutive super moons, July, August and September 2014. With a super moon you can expect heightened sensitivity and awareness of the ruling planets influence. This month, the moon is in Capricorn influencing: Structure, planning and success. With the moon becoming full at 7.25 am this Saturday the 12th July our focus can shift to balancing work and family life. The tarot of the weekend is the moon, symbolising our subconscious mind. Watch for feelings of insecurity and anxiety. Relax and breathe. Perhaps the new moon two weeks ago brought about a new idea or opportunity. A new way of thinking about a situation. Watch as it is now illuminated in the light of the moon, and take time over the next two weeks to pay attention to whatever it is that is manifesting in your life. You need to express what you are feeling now. The full moon this weekend illuminates the conflict between your roots and direction. If you feel yourself being pulled every which way, listed to yourself, your inner gut feelings and emotions.
Use the enregy of the moon this weekend to get those things that are in your mind out into reality. Create, express and balance.
This weekend is all about balancing family and work commitments, and being mindful to express your feelings and emotions before you explode....... Be mindful of feeling insecure and anxious. Instead try to focus on success.
If your feeling sluggish, unmotivated, lacking direction, it could have something to do with mars in a challenging direction to neptune this morning. Bring in the knight if cups and we could have a recepie for a relationship at a standstill. Whatever challenges you are faced with, listen to your heart. This afternoon the planets align with more harmony giving us a boost of creativity and imagination.
With the card of the day being Strength, and the moon continuing it's transit through Scorpio, we are at our best when keeping cool, calm and strong. It's a great day to get to the bottom of things that have been pestering you for a while and causing unnecessary anxiety. Breathe, stay calm and structure your day.
9 is the number of today with the tarot of the day being the 9 of Pentacles. Relax and enjoy the fruits of your labour! Enjoy your success! Complimented with the moon in Sagittarius, today hold your head up high, walk proud, present yourself with confidence and pride. Emotionally you are feeling a desire for life experiences, adventure and freedom.
With the moon ending it's transit through Libra and entering Scorpio this afternoon, we become more intrigued with the less known, secrative side of things today. Blended with today's tarot, 7 of swords, representing secrative, sneaky behaviour, the key message today is to keep a keen eye on everything going on around you. If you feel there is a mystery to solve, now is the time to investigate. If you are the one being mysterious and aloof, time to fess up and take responsibility for your actions. If you think you are getting away with something, think again.
The focus of the day is making things right. Finding balance and making things work and flow. Warning not to push too hard, or you may regret doing so later. The Emperess combined with the moon transitioning though Libra suggests approaching situations with a nurturing, balanced approach today.
Scientific studies have found music and rhythm can make us happier, more helpful and empathetic towards others.
When exposed to rhythmic, synchronised movements people were found to be more pro social, helping others and connecting on a social level with a feeling of camaraderie, balance and overall happiness.
Scientists are using similar rhythm and dance methods on people who have suffered strokes and other neurological damage and found huge improvement in recovery and reported happiness levels.
Toddlers have also shown more empathy and willingness to share and be social when introduced to rhythm and syncronised movement.
So this weekend, indulge. Music is good for the soul.
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
