Weekly Lunar Reading & Magical Attributes: July 22nd - 28th

Moon Phase:
New Moon
Waxing ~ First Quarter
Full Moon on August 5th

Moon's Place
(moon enters Virgo on Friday, July 25th)

Lunar Reading:

There are times we must remind ourselves that certain feelings or emotions will pass. This applies physically, spiritually and mentally to our lives as a whole. When we are down it is good to think of the things we love and bring us happiness. If you are not content with your current situation, then it is up to you to change it. You have the power to replace your 'bad' feelings and emotions with good ones. If you feel hurt, betrayed or disappointed, replace those feelings with gratitude, love and joy. It may seem hard to do this at first, but that is only because you feel programed to focus on the drama or situation at hand. Let it go, know it will work its self out.

There is a lot of love in the air. I mean this literally in every way possible. Your mind is a powerful tool and you get to choose how you portray and see things. You also get to choose how you react and how your reaction may affect others or the planet as a whole. What a great gift the Universe gave to us! If you can tap into and be part of this enormous energy called love, then the possibilities in your life become limitless. Don't live in fear of tomorrow or the 'what ifs' of today. Live and love all creation, including yourself.

For the Magic Doers & Light Workers:

You ability to receive and accept energy is limitless. The universe offers us the greatest gifts in life. Do you humbly accept them and know they are always there, or do you live in fear of the things you don't have and you worry on how you are going to get them? What you resist, simply persists! Don't give thought to the don't wants and what ifs. They don't exist anymore! Whether you ask the universe, god, the fairies or what ever your belief might be, to carry away the things you resist, do so in a manner of knowing they are already gone. Visualize, dream, meditate and know you are healed, you are wealthy, the world is beautiful, filled with love and gratitude. Feel the peacefulness of every single living organism coexisting as one. This is your magical work during the next week and during this new moon. Deep visualizations, affirming the wonderful things about a healthy planet with an abundance of food for all. Incorporate any of your magical devices, grid work and prayers into this affirmative manifestation.

Your Mission for this week:

Anything planted now is sure to grow. I speak both literally and of course metaphorically. The perfect time to plant any type of tree or deep rooted perennial plant is during a New Moon and 3 days after. Not only are we currently under a new moon, there was a total solar eclipse half way across the globe. The biggest and longest solar eclipse we will ever see in our personal lifetime on this planet, a whopping 14 minutes. The Asian countries were very fortunate to see and experience such a sacred event.

Make sure your tree or other deep rooted plant is given plenty of water and well tended to. Offer your plant love and thanks, both aloud and mentally. The affects of positive affirmations on both plant life and human life are miraculous! See my Abundant Garden Blessing & Ritual for other ideas.

Feel free to come back to the blog and post how you spent your day. Share your happenings with fellow readers. :-)

Celestial and Astronomical Events of Note

Late July & all of August Events from the Universe!

July 22 - New Moon **During this time you are bound to see some shooting stars in the blackened night sky with both the Aquarid and Perseid Meteor Showers going on.

July 22 - Total Solar Eclipse. The path of totality will begin in central India and move east through Nepal and China where it will end in the central Pacific Ocean. A partial eclipse will be visible throughout most of eastern Asia and Hawaii. **This rare eclipse will last almost 14 solid minutes. Any magical/light work done now will be extremely powerful!

July 28, 29 - Southern Delta Aquarids Meteor Shower. The Delta Aquarids usually produce about 20 meteors per hour at their peak. The shower will peak this year on July 28 & 29.

August 1st - One of the Eight Sabbats. The Old Celtic name for this festival is Lughnassadh. It is the Festival of the First Fruits, and is the first of the 3 harvests. This festival also marks the change of the Threefold Goddess energies from that of Mother to Crone.

August 5 - Full Moon ** search my archives for several Full Moon blessings, chants, rituals and meditations.

August 6 - Penumbral Lunar Eclipse. The eclipse will be visible throughout most of the Americas, Europe, Africa, and western Asia.

August 10 - September 4 - Saturn Without Rings. The rings of the planet Saturn will be tilted edge-on to the Earth, making them impossible to see. Viewing Saturn with a telescope will reveal the planet without its famous rings. This rare phenomenon only occurs every 14 to 15 years.

August 12, 13 - Perseids Meteor Shower. The Perseids is one of the best meteor showers to observe, producing up to 60 meteors per hour at their peak. This year's peak occurs on August 13 & 14, but you may be able to see some meteors any time from July 23 - August 22. The waxing gibbous moon will provide some interference in the evening, but after it sets, the morning hours should provide some spectacular viewing opportunities. The radiant point for this shower will be in the constellation Perseus. Look to the northeast after midnight.
** During the New Moon of July, the meteor showers will be very viewable with little moon light. Though this is not the peek, the darkness/void of the moon will offer a substantial view.

 August 14 - Jupiter at Opposition. The giant planet will be at its closest approach to Earth. This is the best time to view and photograph Jupiter and its moons.

 August 17 - Neptune at Opposition. The blue planet will be at its closest approach to Earth. This is the best time to view Neptune, although it will only appear as a tiny blue dot in all but the most powerful telescopes.

 August 20 - New Moon

Weekly Lunar Reading & Magical Attributes: July 15th - 20th

Moon Phase:
Waning - 46% of Full (fourth quarter)
New Moon on July 21st ~ Full Moon on August 5th

Moon's Place
(moon enters Taurus on Thursday, July 16th)

Lunar Reading:

Your life may seem like a balancing act at the moment. To many distractions or a general feeling of just being overwhelmed. There is a fine balance within all of it. You just have to seek it out. For many it may be obvious and come naturally. For others it is like a test drive of a new car and they must get comfortable with it. You are the creator of your own day and what you make of it. Only you control your reactions to a situation or event. If you are feeling extremely overwhelmed maybe it is becasue you are taking on to much at one time. Perhaps you feel like you had no choice in this, however you are the choice in everything.

It is true that we must create or find the balance in and of all things. As the old sang goes 'as above, so below'. Yin and Yang, good and bad. Each one of those has balance somewhere in the middle. We too must find our own personal balance in this life to avoid what we perceive as chaos or chaotic situations. To each their own truth and perception to a given situation.

Keep in mind this week that you are the only one who has control over you. No one else can manipulate you unless you allow it. If you keep seeing the same pattern follow you, maybe it is time to reevaluate your current circle of friends or social network. If it doesn't bring you joy or happiness, it's simply not good for you.

By the time the weekend is here most of your current thoughts will be irrelevant to any given situation. You have to let go of the 'what if''s' and negative thoughts that might be holding you back from achieving your goals and dreams. At anytime you feel down about yourself, try a self cleansing ritual. Search my archives for several different postings on physical and emotional cleansing for the spirit & soul.

For the Magic Doers & Light Workers:

Your thoughts and fingers have been anxious to do some good old fashioned magical work. Why is it that you seem so tired or uninspired to do it? Get those magical working devices out and give them the much desired attention they are craving!

The imaginative thoughts you were born with can allow you to have limitless energy and capabilities. It is the teachings of man that have limited our natural capabilities. We fear instead of love.

Your inner light wants to burst out and share with the world that you are evolving. When we begin to relax and allow our imagination and creative thoughts (third sight) to become more reality Check out the Invoke your Imagination Ritual I posted previously.

Your Mission for this week:

One with the Universe Visualization

One night this find a spot in the sky that is starry. You need to have multiple stars visible so a place where the light is limited or little (away from the city) works well. You might consider contacting a friend or family member that lives in the country and asking them to camp out for a night. You know it would be fun anyway, so go for it!

When it is dark and the night sky is shining with twinkling stars you will begin your visualization. Look to the stars and allow your eyes to relax. You'll begin to see strings or lines connecting each star to another. This is the universal grid or web. Focus on the stars. Notice how the shimmer and almost bounce around. Pay attention to the shapes they make. Place your hand in front of your face but extend your arm out. Open your fingers and look through them so your eyes become unfocused away from your hand but you can see the stars appear clearly. Begin to notice how your hand appears to be disappearing right before you but you still see the stars clearly. This is a practice I have done with my child for many years now. Once we can no longer see our hand or fingers becasue we are looking beyond it at the grid (stars and lines), we then begin to visualize our entire bodies as invisible or as I like to call it 'pure energy form'. When we do this it feels as though our whole self is floating among the stars. We are one with the universe as a whole.

Feel free to come back to the blog and post how you spent your day. Share your happenings with fellow readers. :-)

And we made the move..

image copyright Josephine Wall "The Dryad and the Tree Spirit"

I've been talking about it now for what seems like for ever. We are finally moved in with my mom after my dad died in February. It took us a while to get here and settled in. There are still a few boxes here and there and the garage is quite full. We went from a 2,300 square foot farm home to two bedrooms upstairs and a shared bath. I am not complaining though. The rooms coming along nicely, I miss the land around here and feel the love being back home where I grew up. I love this old house and the fairies that dwell in the sacred woods. This place is special and I am blessed to be here with my family.

Now that things are getting settled in and taken care of, I hope to soon restart the weekly Lunar Readings with Magical Attributes, Oracle Messages from the Fairy Realm and many other of my usually posts. I miss this routine. If all goes well, I will restart the normal blog posts once again next week.

Tom (my hubby) is getting ready to pull in a few jobs. He has to see about renting space to do it and continue his art with vehicles. In the mean time, I am running a limited time sale on the Giving Earth website. All style of the Emailed/Text only versions of any Oracle/Tarot reading are on sale for $15.55. Other select printed and personalized readings are on sale as well! Ends July 31st. Hurry! ;-)

In a few weeks Tom & I will celebrate our 10th year of marriage. I am excited and so blessed to have such an outstanding relationship with my spouse. We are truly kindred spirits from the past. We are the dryad and the tree spirit. I'm hoping we can go canoing and maybe camping at the Mohican Native Reservation and Park in Loudonville, OH.

I hope most of you had a chance to view the large full moon the other night. It was stunningly huge from our location! The aura glowed brilliantly against the blackness of the night sky. We watched it rise above the tree line with a few scattered clouds slowly making their way across the moonlit sky and shadowing across the sacred full moon.

Till the next time, or until next week at least when the regular postings resume once more.
