Weekly Herbal Moon Insights for week starting 21st April 2019.
As the moon begins to wane this week, it’s an ideal time for letting go + releasing what no longer serves you. Use releasing rituals, bath rituals, and/or oracle/tarot card readings to help you during this time…
Monday 22nd April:
Herbal Tarot card: Five of Wands – Turmeric (reversed)
This card invites us to observe our areas of weakness and strengthen these areas. Look inward for any conflict that could be manifesting on the outside (especially if you find yourself lacking commitment). Add a small amount of turmeric to your meals today to harness the strength of this herb, or try a turmeric latte or smoothie.
Tuesday 23rd April:
Disseminating moon – as the moon begins to wane visibly, it’s a beautiful time to reflect on your intentions + give thanks for what the Universe has provided. Regular gratitude journaling is a wonderful habit to start. Use a dedicated journal to record everything you are grateful for. Start with “I am grateful for…” and list what you are feel especially grateful for today.
Wednesday 24th April:
Herbal Tarot card: XV Pan – Lobelia
Lobelia, on a spiritual level, helps us to let go of self-limiting beliefs. What do you believe in that’s holding you back? What stories are you telling yourself that may not be necessarily true? Lighten up + don’t take yourself so seriously. You may find it helpful to journal to let go of any self-limiting beliefs. [Let me know if you’d like to know more about doing this and I can do a separate blog post on journal prompts!]
Thursday 25th April:
Herbal Tarot card: Six of Wands – Hawthorn
Release feelings of hate + invite love & peace into your life. Hawthorn has an affinity with the heart chakra – today may be a good day to clear any blockages in your heart chakra. Repeat positive affirmations such as “I am open to love” or “I move forward in the direction my heart dictates”, choose green clothing or crystals for colour therapy, or listen to some uplifting music.
Friday 26th April:
Herbal Tarot card: Nine of Swords – Valerian
Be grateful for lessons learned from mistakes you have made. Don’t dwell on bad decisions – remember that everything happens for a reason and there are always lessons to be learnt. Now is a time for letting go of self-judgements.
Saturday 27th April:
Third quarter moon – the moon’s releasing energy is coming to it’s peak, and with the moon close to it’s apogee you’ll be feeling less emotional + have more clarity of thought. It’s a beautiful time for confronting any obstacles, give up bad habits, resolving any unresolved issues, and forgiveness.
