Dark and New Moon Reflections: Including Tarot Reading



This month has flown by for me. How has it been for you? I still feel like I'm in June, but wow, we’ve arrived at the middle of the year in July.


A dear friend of mine has just given birth, and I've been supporting her during these precious weeks before we travel to Europe. I’m immersed in the postpartum bubble, which is so beautiful and such an honor. This period has also been an opportunity for Daddy and Auraya to bond, and I can feel her spontaneously weaning off breast milk. Rites of passage don't always have to be so rigid and heightened; this one feels very gentle—at least for now.


So, let's go deeper with the reflections and insights for this period. The intention is to offer a broader perspective, encouraging us to take a step back from the normal ways of thinking and experiencing life. By doing so, we can truly connect with the deep messages passing through the collective consciousness. Please reach out if you resonate and would like to share your thoughts.


Dark Moon Energy: July 4th


The dark moon energy on July 4th invites us into the void—a time for deliberate pausing to witness our habitual ways of thinking and behaving. This period asks us for 24 hours of chosen nothingness, a time to stop preparing and planning for the future, to cease searching for answers, and instead let the day unfold with curiosity.


Keep the day super simple. If your mind labels it as "boring," embrace that feeling. Include activities that nourish and replenish you. Immerse yourself in the moment and the unknown mystery it carries.


Is there an activity or ceremony that comes to mind?


New Moon: July 5th


The new moon on July 5th represents new beginnings. Yet, it's essential not to put your foot too hard on the gas. Stay present, observe the ideas that arise, and take time to feel if they resonate with you. Continue to deepen your connection to your body and your breath.


This is a time to ensure your inner soil is rich and the channels are open, so the seed of your heart can nestle within and begin to grow. Prepare delicious food, replenish and restore yourself. Dance, move with love and intention. Make space for yourself and your loved ones to bathe in each other's love.


Reflections and Insights from the Collective Energy Right Now


Mystery

From seeking, the mind becomes excited; from mystery, your heart awakens. It may feel like there are unknowns or decisions to be made. These next steps are not for the mind to decide, but to participate when the heart chooses.


Mantra: I follow my heart, there is no need to rush.


Responsibility

Instead of seeing the faults in others, turn within to see our own projections and own them. Notice how they feel and manifest, and choose to hold them instead of expecting others to hold them.


Mantra: I can be with all arisings within me.


Projection

A maturing is taking place within, allowing you to see a bigger picture. The space between triggers and reactions is greater, giving you more time to choose what serves you and your world. People around you may feel insecure with this new expression of you and try to pull you back in many creative ways.


Mantra: I see truth.


Sisterhood

Friendship may present itself with deep gratitude, or perhaps it is what you are calling in. Honor these relationships with prayer and deep presence—they are here as a gift.


Mantra: I am held by my sisters.


Sensuality

Awaken your senses. How deeply can you feel? How much pleasure can you receive? It may be through food, movement, singing, touch—let yourself go there. Notice what takes you away, what thoughts, what arisings.


Mantra: I allow myself to experience pleasure.


New Moon Ritual: Embracing New Beginnings


  • Prepare a space with candles and incense, signaling a transition into introspection.
