Card A: New Moon in Scorpio
You picked the New Moon in Scorpio oracle card!
Scorpio is associated with death and rebirth. Transformation. It may be that you are ready for this transformation (or not). Whatever you have been through, a fresh start is emerging. It won’t be all rainbows and unicorns, but it does promise to be deep and meaningful. The past has made you who you are today. Now that you are in a stronger mindset, you can achieve things, which alluded you in the past.
Scorpio is associated with attraction, which means you are becoming more attractive. When we feel good on the inside, stronger, we tend to sparkle on the outside. You start to look younger, and this is because you are smiling more. You have worked through your fears. All this leads to doors opening for you, more easily than before. In some cases this means romantically, but in many it means in career and personal dreams.
Card B: New Moon in Sagittarius
You picked the New Moon in Sagittarius oracle card!
This card is associated with more fun and freedom. Maybe you have been feeling trapped or worn down by the repetitive nature of everyday. Yet sometimes we must experience the ‘dull’ in order to appreciate the ‘sparkle’. And that is what is happening here. The Universe and Stars are smiling down at you, recognizing your thirst for adventure and excitement. And oh baby, it is coming! Hold onto your hat.
Right now, the stars are aligned in your favor. Why? Because you are now prepared to take a calculated few risks. Doubt and fear is cast aside, because you’ve come to realize that nothing was ever going to change until you changed what was happening inside your head. Until you stopped thinking the same thoughts but expecting a different outcome.
Now is a wonderful time to set an intention to start a business, study, plan a big vacation or whatever else is on your bucket list.
Card C: New Moon in Libra
You picked the New Moon in Libra oracle card!
This card is associated with balance and a fresh start, primarily in relationships.
A new relationship is emerging or may emerge for some of you. When this happens, chances are the relationship will be balanced and healthy.
For some of you already in a relationship, the message is: this is a chance to start again. To find common ground on which to build a happier future.
For all of you reading this message: doing anything in pairs in the months ahead is a good idea – for example teaming up with someone in business or on a personal project.
For those of you waiting on results from a legal case, legal matters go your way.
Card D: New Moon in Leo
You picked the New Moon in Leo oracle card!
This card is associated with confidence and success.
Leo traditionally enjoys the spotlight and the new moon heralds a new opportunity. What all this means, is that there is, or soon will be an opportunity for you to be in the spotlight. Normally you may find reasons why you are ‘not ready yet’, or perhaps you have stopped putting yourself in the situation to be picked in the first place. But all that is changing. You are on fire.
When this oracle card appears, it means the clouds of a low mood or depression are lifting. Health is better. The sun comes out again. You are ready to shine your Light and show the world what you’ve got.
In romance, this makes you utterly irresistible, so expect to turn some heads. Even if you’re already in a relationship!
Card E: New Moon in Capricorn
You picked the New Moon in Capricorn oracle card!
This card is associated with a fresh start in work and finances.
When this oracle card appears, it means your hard work is paying off. Whatever has been going on in your work life is about to pay off and spark a fresh new cycle. It will be easier to get promoted or receive a raise/bonus, so be sure to put yourself forward.
In business, you begin to see the first green shoots of success. It is a sign to keep pushing, don’t relax and drop the ball.
In an area of study, you are guided to stay focused and push through any difficulties, it will be worth it in the end. Transforming in fact.
At this time, the guidance of the oracle card is to think more strategically and longer-term. Ask, where do I want to be 12 months or two years from now? Which avenue do I want to go down? There are so many things you could do, the priority now is to focus and merge your passion with the way you make your money. This may mean a new direction for some of you (which you have already started), or for others it may mean working harder until you reach that goal.
Card F: New Moon in Aquarius – New Moon Reading
You picked the New Moon in Aquarius oracle card with your new moon reading.
This card is associated with a fresh mindset. In other words, viewing your problems with a different eye. Instead of thinking ‘well that’s the way things are or that’s the sort of person I am’ – this card encourages you to think the exact opposite. So whatever it is you wish to change or improve – finances, health, your body, relationship with certain people, self-doubt: know that there is a better way.
As you received this card on a new moon, it means this month you are finally more open to seeing solutions and making the necessary changes.
Some of you need to let go of something in order to move forward. This may be a situation, but it’s just as likely to be a mindset.
There is an electric charge in the atmosphere in the coming weeks. Don’t ignore it – use it. Know that it is the Universe sending you this power, like an electricity volt.
Some of you who read this message, will already have felt this electricity for some weeks or months now, and are using it. So congratulations, this is a confirmation you are on the right path.
Also, any charity work you do in the coming weeks is great for your karma.
Card G: Blue Moon
You picked the Blue Moon oracle card!
This card is associated with manifestation – the power to attract good things.
As the saying goes – some things only happen ‘once in a blue moon’. By receiving this card it means that something will happen that provides you with a rare opportunity by the next blue moon.
It’s a lovely sign if you feel you’ve been hoping or asking for too much of the Universe. Especially if what you’ve been asking for is as likely as ‘once in a blue moon.’
However, in many cases, whatever this opportunity is, may not yet be on your radar – so don’t bother wasting time trying to figure out what it may be. Simply wait with open arms.
Why is the Moon so Powerful?
People have long held the belief that the movement of the moon effects humans, both physically and mentally. After all the moon sucks trillions of gallons of water in and pushes it out again – known as tides. So is it such a big leap to think it will affect us too? Our body is 70 percent water after all! Water is of course also associated with chemical reactions and thus our hormones and mood can literally swing with the tide!
As far back as the 1st century AD, Pliny the Elder wrote a book called Natural History cataloging the moon’s influence over human life – and it’s pretty extensive, 37 volumes in total!
Because the moon waxes and wanes and reappears again like new each month, it has become associated with death and rebirth. For centuries witches (Wiccans) and pagans have harnessed the power of the moon to give an extra boost to spells for good fortune, achievement and healing.
In general ‘moon magic’ is thought to work better for women than men because it is recognized as having a significant effect on women’s menstrual cycles. It seems our body and intuitive abilities respond better to it.
Why is a New Moon so Powerful? The Perfect Time for a New Moon Reading
On a new moon, your power to create new situations increases – so for this reason it’s a good time to start new projects. Of if you are confused about the future, you can ask for guidance on what fresh start to make. The guidance may come to you in a dream. Or you may find that opportunities make themselves obvious in the coming lunar month. A new moon is also a good time to meditate because ‘fresh information’ in the form of guidance from the Universe may come more easily to you. It is also a lovely night to perform any self-healing rituals – particularly if you just want a general feel-good boost.
Different times of the moon cycle are more appropriate for different tasks. A full moon is one of the most powerful nights of the month to make a wish. For this reason, it is also the perfect time to experiment with any gift you are exploring. If for example you perform an angel card or tarot card reading for yourself on a full moon, you may find you can interpret it better than usual. If you perform a healing on someone (or yourself), it is likely to be more powerful.
Drinking New Moon Infused Water
Drinking new moon infused water is a wonderful way to give an extra boost to any goals or visualizations you are working with. Leave your bottle of water outside overnight when there is a new moon. Before putting the water out – put your intention into the water. So for example, if you are setting a new intention to lose weight, start a business or develop a skill – think about this and make your intention clear as you set your water down. Or if you would simply like guidance, ask for the guidance to make itself known to you. The next morning collect your bottle and store in a dark place, this will help preserve any energy it has gathered from the moon. Every-time you drink from the bottle, repeat your wish or intention.
