Weekly Herbal Moon Insights for week starting 20th January 2019.
So many reversed cards for this week’s insight, but I feel this upcoming week is full of life’s lessons…
Sunday 20th January:
Herbal Tarot card: X Medicine Wheel (reversed) – Slippery Elm
You might feel like you’re going around in circles or don’t have focus. The approaching full moon + lunar eclipse has you inspired & wanting to do ALL the things. SLOW DOWN and focus. Focus on the bigger picture, stay in alignment. What’s your end goal? Keep that in your mind.
Monday 21st January
Herbal Tarot card: Four of Pentacles (reversed) – Cascara Bark
Are you letting things pass without absorbing their meaning? Use this time to reflect on what’s happening in your life, and what you would like to happen. The lunar eclipse is today (in the Southern Hemisphere – not visible to us in Australia but we’ll still feel the effects) – this is a powerful time of manifestation. Don’t let this eclipse pass by insignificantly – make your own magic! It’s the perfect day to do a powerful manifesting ritual and harness the power of the lunar eclipse.
Tuesday 22nd January
Herbal Tarot card: 0 The Fool (reversed) – Ginseng
Are you still feeling under the influence of the full moon + eclipse? Feeling a bit irresponsible, extravagant, careless? Might be time to check in with your actions and reign yourself in.
Wednesday 23rd January
Herbal Tarot card: Page of Cups (reversed) – Damiana
Be wary of slipping into fantasies or deceiving yourself today. Take a reality check, stay in the present. Meditate, focus on your breathing, stay grounded with yoga, and spend time in nature today.
Thursday 24th January
Herbal Tarot card: Queen of Swords – Lady’s Slipper
Be open to inspiration today, but keep calm and stay grounded – don’t run off with your new ideas just yet. Journal your thoughts, communicate your new ideas. There will be the perfect time to launch into action, but ground your ideas first.
Friday 25th January
Herbal Tarot card: Eight of Wands (reversed) – Sassafras
It’s time to focus and take aim. All those inspired ideas you had over the full moon? Now’s the perfect time to take those ideas and create a vision board! Start bringing those ideas to life.
Saturday 26th January
Herbal Tarot card: Five of Swords (reversed) – Mistletoe
Today could be a turning point for you if you be honest with yourself (or keep deceiving yourself, its your choice). Sink into the waning moon energy and tune into your body. What does your body need, what is it asking for? Love yourself up with lots of self-care if that’s what your body is screaming for. Take a nap, have a bath, book a massage, nourish yourself with herbal teas and nutritious fresh foods.
THEMES OF THE WEEK:
Stay calm & grounded
Collect your inspired ideas, ground them, feel into them
Some beautiful herbs to take this week are lavender, chamomile & hops – calming herbs. So helpful if you’re feeling wired after the eclipse!
