Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse September 16, 2016


Here we are at the Full Moon/ Lunar Eclipse. While we most likely won’t see any of it in the states we will fill the shifts. The sign it falls in is Pisces. For me, I know it will be an interesting time as it is falling on my moon. (If you want to read more about the Astrology go here.) This moon has many names but I’ve chosen to go with the traditional Harvest Moon as I will soon be harvesting my herbs in flowers.

This moon has many names (there is a list here.) but I’ve chosen to go with the traditional Harvest Moon as I will soon be harvesting my herbs in flowers. Winter will be upon us or at least the much colder temps will be.

You know all that already, So let’s get to why you stopped by the reading.


Queen of Cups

How fitting that the first card up is this lovely lady. If you notice the Queen of Cups fan she has the symbol for Pisces right on her fan. You’re most likely thinking to yourself that’s great but what does that mean for me.

Well, as this is in a passing position I feel this is representative of the time. We’ve had a heady New Moon/ Solar Eclipse and Mercury Retro that have left us in a very emotional state. For some, that has been happy and others, it has been gut wrenching. And others it has been volatile. The only thing keeping most going, that are in the later two categories is hope and believe that things will get better. Their intuition has been pushing them to look at things differently, to get to the meat of the issues that have been festering. The things we’ve been ignoring which is also very fitting for the shift of Jupiter into Libra. I hope you’ve been doing that during this period.

The Empress


The Empress is all about nurturing. Are you taking care of yourself? Are you healing? The star that was only a little glimmer on the Queen is now shining brightly. The ideas are coming and you are in a much better frame of mind. While you aren’t completely out of the woods yet due to Mercury RX, you are doing better. You are starting to want to step out of the shadows and embrace the world more. You’ve come to realize that while you nurture others they nurture you as well. After all, life is a cyclic gift.

two of cups

The Two fo Cups is offering us companionship on a different level. You’ve discovered that you like having someone in your corner and appreciate the equal energy exchange. You’ve also come to understand that not every day or everyone is perfect. This will always be a work in progress but when it is right, it’s very right. Now some of you might be thinking this is about a romantic relationship but that isn’t the case. This is representing most of our close personal relationships. The ones we value and hold dear.  Enjoy the time you can with close friends it is a great blessing that many do not have.

the chariot

The Chariot makes us want to rush to our dreams to pick up the forward momentum and go forward. But if we look closer we see in the background the white flag, which leads me to this question for you to ponder. What have you given up? Hopefully during the last few weeks you’ve taken a deeper look at yourself and your life and began to realize you must be honest with yourself and the people that are around you.

So let’s take a larger look at the placement. It’s resting on top of the Queen of Cups and The Empress, the first thing I notice is that the Chariot contains two horses very much like the two ladies above. One is very light and the other is dark.  This is telling you to find a balance a happy medium that allows you to surrender your fears and worries and release them. Change your mind and allow yourself to be happy. Don’t let the past pain continue to harm you. Enjoy the ride and find peace.

ten of pentacles

The next card up is the Ten of Pentacles and he is offering us a chance at Peace. He is not speaking of World Peace, even though that would be wonderful. What he is speaking of is inner peace. If you stop and take a deep breath and look at what you have instead of worrying bout what others think or have you might find your life is full of joy and happiness already.

In its position on the Empress and the Two fo Cups, you are coming to fully realize how happy you are. You see that by nurturing yourself and helping others your life has become more fulfilled. The key to your success will come from your joy and your relationships. These will offer you a clearer mind and greater focus.


the fool

So now we arrive with one last card, The Fool. What is the Fool telling us? It is telling us that you are at the start of a journey. The old journey has finished and a new one is awaiting you. It is just a matter of deciding the path you are seeking. Find what speaks to your soul and do it. Know and own your joy and embrace our inner peace.

Placement, being on the Chariot and the Ten of Pentacles truly dictates movement and beginning again. You’ve tried things one way and now you see that a new way is needed.

Best Advice: While this has been an emotional time know that things have come about for you to heal and to love yourself more. You are forming better relationships and enjoying them for what they are. You understand that life and time are important and shouldn’t be wasted as they are limited.Let go of the past and plan for the future. Even though it is uncertain, you will enjoy the journey.

Good Luck and Happy Harvest!
