Scorpio New Moon Card Spread & Ritual

Happy New Moon in Scorpio! I love setting intentions on New Moons and sometimes it is nice to tap into the energy of the current sign.

Scorpio is a Water sign that is often associated with intensity, magnetism, mysterious, shadow-side, loyalty, sexiness, possessiveness, power, bravery.

I created a card spread to help you bring the positive aspects of this sign into your life.

If tarot or oracle cards are not your thing, then this is more of an intuitive journal challenge.

Here’s how this works:

Supplies: card deck (optional), journal, pen or pencil

  1. Find a quiet place where you can dedicate a little bit of time to this activity and yourself.
  2. Light a candle or incense, burn some sage or turn on an essential oil diffuser.
  3. Set the intention that this time is for introspection that will help you move forward towards your desires.
  4. Ask for guidance from God/Universe/Spirit, Mother Earth, guides, angels, etc.
  5. Take 5 deep breaths. You can follow this with some Lunar Breathing if desired.
  6. Ask the following questions. If using cards, shuffle and either pick the card you are drawn to, the one on top or bottom, or the one that falls out. No cards? Then listen to your intuition and write down what pops in your head.

1. What has been going on under the surface for me lately?

2. Does something need to bubble up?

3. Where does it feel appropriate to have a bit of mystery right now?

4. How can I embrace my darker side during this lunar cycle?


Reflect on what has come up.

Set an intention related to question 4 during this next moon cycle.

New Moon in Libra Card Spread & Ritual

Happy New Moon in Libra! I love setting intentions on New Moons and sometimes it is nice to tap into the energy of the current sign.

Libra is an Air sign that is often associated with balance, harmony, partnership, commitment, fairness, relationships, cooperation.

I created a card spread to help you bring the positive aspects of this sign into your life.

Not all of you do tarot and oracle cards so for you, this is more of an intuitive journal challenge.

Here’s how this works:

Supplies: card deck (optional), journal, pen or pencil

  2. Light a candle or incense, burn some sage or turn on an essential oil diffuser.

  6. Ask the following questions. If using cards, shuffle and either pick the card you are drawn to, the one on top or bottom, or the one that falls out. No cards? Then listen to your intuition and write down what pops in your head.

1. What area of my life needs more balance and harmony? 

2. How can I bring more Libra energy to this area?

3. What is hidden that has kept this area out of whack?


Reflect on what has come up.

Set an intention to act on the answer to question 2 during this next moon cycle.

August: Virtual Full Moon Gathering

Thank you to everyone who came to my Virtual Full Moon Gathering last night! Here is the replay.

The meditation and breathing we did can be done anytime. If you want to tap into the full moon energy then consider doing it tonight or tomorrow night.

A big thing I want to share with you is how to mix the mystical with the mundane in your life. My 8-year-old walked in during our Lunar Breathing exercise to ask is he could watch Netflix. 

A few years ago, this would have made me so annoyed that he did that during a live event online. Now, I breathed through it and simply shared with everyone that we had a visitor. He even came back a second time!

When you do these breathing practices, meditations, and energetic techniques, you can get into the flow of your own life.

I used to think that once I perfected things it would mean that I would have things so organized that interruptions like that wouldn’t happen.

What I learned is that life still happens and now I react differently to it.

It is a beautiful way to live and I invite you to join me.

Please share what word comes up for you during the meditation in the comments!
