July 2020: Tarot spread for the full moon in Capricorn

Tarot spread for the July 2020 full moon in Capricorn

The July 2020 full moon falls in the sign of Capricorn. Symbolized by the mountain goat, which maintains perfect balance while it climbs over precarious rock ledges, the Capricorn archetype is one of disciplined and dogged determination towards the attainment of our worldly desires.

Spiritually, the Capricorn archetype teaches us about integrity and helps us to harness the ability to plan our work, and stick to it, no matter what. In these times of 24×7 consumption culture, it’s easy to be addicted with shiny object syndrome and forget about our goals and plans. Capricorn teaches us about the meaning of integrity: to align ourselves with our highest ideals and actualize our potential.

June 2020: Tarot spread for the new moon in Cancer

Tarot spread for the June 2020 new moon in Cancer

The June 2020 new moon falls in the sign of Cancer. It is also a solar eclipse and the summer solstice. The Cancer archetype is emotional, intuitive, nurturing and healing. It also symbolizes “home” and all the things that home represents – not just our physical home, but also our emotions, energy, body, and the spiritual hearth of our souls.

Spiritually, the Cancer archetype is one of compassion, of recognising that people act to the best of their abilities, limited by their education, upbringing and current awareness. The Cancer archetype knows that love and forgiveness are the best way to respond to destructive behavior.

June 2020: Tarot spread for the full moon in Sagittarius

Tarot spread for the June 2020 full moon in Sagittarius

The June 2020 full moon falls in the sign of Sagittarius. The freedom loving Sagittarius archetype is in a constant search for inspiration, new avenues of exploration, and adventure. This is a sign that gets bored of the status quo easily, and needs the rush of a new quest to keep them on their toes.

Spiritually, the Sagittarius archetype teaches us to cultivate our own personal relationship with the divine. Contrary to what most religions and a lot of spiritual teachers say, you don’t need an intermediary between you and Source/God/the Universe. You have that connection available to you at all times. Learning to tune in and trust that connection is where a lot of us seem to stumble, though. The Sagittarius archetype teaches us to trust that things will work out and that there is always a higher purpose behind everything that happens in our lives.

May 2020: Tarot spread for the new moon in Gemini

Tarot spread for the May 2020 new moon in Gemini

The May 2020 new moon falls in the sign of Gemini. The Gemini archetype is very curious, an excellent communicator, and a disseminator of knowledge. It is the sign of the writer, of those who tend to think deeply, are highly perceptive, and prefer to learn from experience.

Spiritually, the Gemini archetype is about courageous conversation, be it with another person or with the Universe. Gemini adds its vibration to the advancement of culture and civilization through dialogue, be that via books or blogs or letters.

The May 2020 new moon also highlights our foundations and roots; our closest relationships and the things and people that feel like home. In “normal” {i.e. pre-pandemic} times, this moon would have highlighted communication, collaboration, and time spent in the company of family and friends. In our “new normal” though, we are going to have to come up with new and innovative ways of building these networks of community.

May 2020: Tarot spread for the full moon in Scorpio

Tarot spread for the May 2020 full moon in Scorpio

The May 2020 full moon falls in the sign of Scorpio. The Scorpio archetype is known for its intense power and its ability to transform, much like the butterfly emerging from its cocoon, ready to fly. The Scorpio archetype isn’t afraid of the birth-death-rebirth cycle, for it is only when parts of us die and are reborn that we can fully transform.

So perhaps it’s not surprising that spiritually, the Scorpio archetype teaches us to surrender – to align our human will with divine will. It teaches us that sometimes – dare I say most often – our human trials and tragedies have a higher purpose. They are not happening “to” us but “for” us. This is not always easy to live or to understand, especially when it comes through trauma. And yet, on the other side of trauma there is a deep transformation that we can access as we start to step out of the story and step into acceptance and find the medicine in that trauma.

Tarot forecast for May 2020: The archetypal energy

May presents us with the archetype of The Mystic. A butterfly shines brightly in the darkness; its inner core illuminated brightly, seemingly dispelling at least some of the gloom all around it. The only colors on this card are the oranges in the butterfly’s wings and the bright yellow in its central core, reminding me of a brightly lit candle that dispels the darkness around it.

April 2020: Tarot spread for the new moon in Taurus

Tarot spread for the April 2020 new moon in Taurus

The April 2020 new moon falls in the sign of Taurus. The Taurus archetype is grounded and steadfast, calm and composed, firm and also somewhat stubborn. This is a sign that is practical and earthy, and is associated with material pleasures, desires, luxuriousness, and abundance. 

Spiritually, the Taurus archetype teaches the principle of belonging through presence…our presence as sacred human beings…honouring the body temple…honouring the flow of life. This can be difficult given the society we live in, which praises the hustle over reverence and treats time as money rather than a finite resource that should be used wisely in the pursuit of the things that give us meaning.

April 2020: Tarot spread for the full moon in Libra

Tarot spread for the April 2020 full moon in Libra

The April 2020 full moon falls in the sign of Libra. The Libra archetype is closely associated with justice and maintaining balance in social interactions and within the self. They are the true diplomats among the zodiac archetypes, and focus on fair dealings in all their relationships.

Spiritually, the Libra archetype teaches the principle of intimate balance, of the ability to remain centered and true to yourself no matter what may be going on around you. This is a skill that can be particularly helpful for those of us who turn up our noses to societal expectations as we dance to the tune of our own drum beat. Being able to remain centered is also an important skill to have if you’re surrounded by toxic people – and in these times, even toxic politics! One of the best ways to remain centered is through the breath, and through being able to distinguish between the things that are in your control, and those that aren’t.
