July Planetary Influences and Moon Cycles


The stars and planets are interconnected with each other, all flowing along magnetic field lines, which symbolize the arteries of the galactic body. They act as the nervous system of the universe relaying information from star to star, galaxy to galaxy, and we humans feel the affect as pulsations of energy.

The dark moon is on its way, revealing itself on the 4th of July, bringing change. The new moon occurs when the first sliver of light appears in the  dark night sky.   Strong planetary aspects occurring over the last few months, the rare phenomenon of five retrograding planets combined with the energy of the June Full Moon/Solstice alignment have created powerful internal change within everyone.   The upcoming dark moon in July is a trigger to start the most powerful influences that will impact us since 2014.

This is not a typical New Moon and we will want to utilize the full three days beginning on the 4th to find stillness.  Even though Mars has now gone direct and the retrograde period is over we are still dealing with some of the darkness that has been exposed in recent weeks. The fact that Mars is not moving very quickly, requires us to face our own dark sides.  During this New Moon it is important to examine where in your life you may be holding that darkness, where you might need to add additional light, compassion, or forgiveness. An opportune time to see what you are still holding on to.

Many feel confused unable to make decisions, bouncing back and forth. Neptune began its retrograde cycle helping us to tap into our true spiritual visions, hopes and dreams.   This New Moon can bring deep emotions to the surface thanks to all the other aspects going on as well, so be easy on yourself and again, trust your instincts.  If you follow a spiritual path then this New Moon will work well for you.  For those who belong to our online subscription series I have now posted the New Moon ritual for this month.  You can still join as the yearly subscription is from the time you join until the following year.

Remembering to follow the natural cycles of the moon will help us to find our balance during these times of uncertainty.  We have forgotten the ancient traditions and the vow to keep the song lines, spirit lines and dragon lines alive that we once made long ago.  The more we honor these ancient traditions, the more we will find a deep sense of inner peace.


The magickal workings of the moon that the ancient ones followed was a complete cycle repeating each month.

The New moon is the most powerful time to set the intention & begin new endeavors and projects.  The new moon gives way to the first sliver of light as the shadow moves and the moon reveals herself.

Two weeks later, we have the complete illumination of the Full moon, which can reveal what has remained in the dark. Guidance for the next part of your journey will reveal itself for the spiritual seeker who takes the time to honor the Goddess in her full power through ritual and celebration.

When the moon cycles into her full and most powerful light you are able to finish what you started for the two-week cycle following the full moon.  As the moon begins to recede into the shadow or wanes we have the opportunity to deal with what came up at the full moon, wrap up lose ends and prepare to start something new at the following months new moon.

The moon is a gift to guide the human who is dedicated to work with the energies available each month.  I live my life honoring the moon cycles as it richly and deeply enhances my earth walk.   The rituals shared are powerful tools to support you on your journey connecting the Dream Walker and the Surface Walker.

Each new moon has a six-month astrological cycle,  for example the January Capricorn new moon comes full circle with the July Capricorn full moon. You can set specific intentions at a new moon, based on the energies of that zodiac sign, and watch them unfold in the coming half-year.


The July Full Moon occurs on July 20th.

Every Full Moon provides an opportune time to explore our personal impact on others.  Are we making a positive change? This is going to be an intense month of uncertainty for those living in the United States so it will be important to not get caught up with the political chaos that will continue to ensue.  The time has come  for deep seeded changes and there are no accidents the New Moon will occur at the same time the United States celebrates its independence day.   This is a time to think out of the box.


The Full Moon in Capricorn empowers you to be your own authority and reclaim your power. Do not give it away to others, your career, or holding on to an old hurt. The July Full Moon will illuminate those things in your life where you might give your power away.  An excellent time to evaluate your relationships and ask if they make you feel stronger or weaker? Recognize your limitations and use them as your ally.  Be willing to hold on to your dreams by not giving up or blaming others.  It is easy to walk away from a big dream when it is not happening in the time frame you have created in your mind.  Keep the faith as the tide is about turn in your favor if you stay committed.  Do what empowers you.

Being happy and finding your joy is the most important thing you can do.  Nothing is more important than you living an expression of joy.  You and only you have absolute and complete control about that because you can choose the thought that makes you worry or the thought that makes you happy and joyful.   You can continue to live with regret, disappointment, anger, and resentment.  Holding on to that last remaining energy where you give your power to another, or you can focus on the things that create wanderlust and make your heart smile. You have the choice in every moment.


I have  now posted a powerful Full Moon ritual dedicated to the Celtic Goddess Morrigan and will post  an audio meditation mid July just prior to the full moon for those who are members of our Moon Cycle and Sacred Sabbat Celebrations.   After the Mars retrograde cycle  if you have gained wisdom, learning from your mistakes and have a willingness to adapt to changing circumstances, Morrigan can assist you in stepping forward.   if you have become stuck in an old rut and lost the ability to let those areas of your life go that no longer serve you, Morrigan is the  Goddess to call upon.   She provides the courage to stand up for your rights while setting firm and personal boundaries.   Morrigan can assist you if you want to reclaim your personal power and wish to no longer play the role of the victim.
