7/31/17 – 8/6/17 ~ This week’s oracle message: Give and Receive Support

This week, astrologically the moon is waxing (growing) and moving through the signs of Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, and a tiny bit of Aquarius on Sunday night. The next few weeks we’ve got big moon and seasonal shifts happening, including a partial eclipse, a full moon in Aquarius and Lunar Lammas on 8-7-17, and a full eclipse on 8-21-17. There is quite a bit of contrasting energy here elementally. So don’t be surprised if you feel like you are clashing with energy, it’s just what is happening right now. At worst, the energy this week has the potential to be biting, harsh, stubborn and delusional. At best, it has the potential to be intuitive, directed, grounded and whimsical. Be sure to engage in flow and don’t get stuck in one type of energy, this will take the edge off if you do have a rough time. The full solar eclipse on the 21st of August is said to be very fiery and all about shadows coming to the surface. So this is a time to look at the inner work you need to do before it comes up during eclipse time.

In leading up to the energy of the eclipse, I pulled a Dragon tarot card of the 8 of cups, and a butterfly card of Support. The Dragon Tarot deck I pulled from is by Peter Pracownik and Terry Donaldson, and the Butterfly deck is by Doreen Virtue.

I pulled from the Dragon Tarot because dragons deal with fire energy, direction and higher perspective. The 8 of Cups is a powerful card, basically signifying emotional maturity to the point that you can mentor others because of the work you’ve done. In tarot numerology, 8s are a signpost in the realm of transition from student to teacher. Cups deal with our emotions, our water element, and our relationships. Most everyone has some kind of emotional mountain to climb in their life, and the best visual for this card is to follow the bends of the streams and the rivers up the mountain, rather than trying to go straight to the top. It’s all about maneuverability, adaptability, and being able to see that there is no stagnation, permanent or fixed part of life or emotion. As the energy of the eclipse approaches, and your shadow aspects come up, look to the principles of teaching and giving yourself credit for the work you’ve done to get where you are. Even if you feel crappy about a certain area of your emotional life, someone else may benefit from an area that you feel strong and good about. Ultimately the card is asking you to acknowledge your emotional growth and use it to help others. It could be that you use the growth you’ve done to inform how to help in another area of your own life that could use it. This is a broad topic, and the ways that your emotional growth can teach is as varied as each of us. What does your gut say, your intuition, your inner knowing? How best can you give this learning back to something else or someone else? As the fire rises and the shadows reveal themselves, give credit to your learning and allow it to be a help.

The Butterfly cards are all about life changes, and the shadow sides that are coming up during the full eclipse on the 21st of August will auger some change. The Butterflies are saying to reach out for support in this transition. In a way, this week’s message of the give and take of support is like a hug, you can’t really give one without getting one back. So support and mentor others emotionally, and you will receive support back. It may not be from the person you are supporting, energy rarely works on that level. This is a shadow belief that I am working with right now, realizing that love languages are different, so when you expect the same kind of love and care you give to another person back from that person, sometimes that is an unrealistic expectation. In the realm of giving, an eye for an eye will always see disappointment. But you’ll get it back from other sources, so be open to receiving. This is a week that requires a bit of vulnerability in order to tell the universe and other people that you do need support. Don’t be a complainy, judgey person ever, but do open up to what you are tender about and how you’d like things to be better, in as kind of a way as possible.

These 2 cards are interesting mirrors together this week. The message here is to be engaged in giving and receiving on an emotional level. Give yourself credit for the work you’ve done and pass it on to others, or another area of your life that needs it. In turn, reach out for support and be open to receiving support from others in ways that are beautiful and unique to them.

I wish you the best of blessings for an energetically lively week,
