Your New Moon TAROTSCOPE & Crystal Prescriptions
New Moons are all about new beginnings and this month's New Moon has got company in Taurus with Uranus moving in to the sign too, bringing extra new energy. So, it feels like the perfect time to introduce our new moonthly tarotscopes feature, in collaboration with Kerry Ward from Tarot Bella.
Kerry has pulled 3 cards for each of the zodiac's elemental signs, one for Body, one for Mind and one for Spirit and offers her guidance and insight on how to work with the energy you may experience in this new moon cycle. To tie in with your readings we've given you some suggestions of crystals that could help balance this energy should you need a little cosmic cheer squad on your side.
Find your element below to read your tarotscope.
The twelve signs of the zodiac are categorised into four groups of three signs, each ruled by a particular element:
Fire - Aries, Leo, Sagittarius.
Air - Gemini, Libra, Aquarius.
Earth - Taurus, Virgo, Capircorn.
Water - Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces.
The signs ruled by each element are naturally compatible with each other, they ‘get’ each other and share similar values, attitudes and outlooks on life. Birds of a feather fly together. If your coven had a member from each zodiac sign, your other two element signs would be your best witches.
This New Moon forecast uses The Wild Unknown tarot deck to understand each element’s Body, Mind and Soul focuses for the moon cycle ahead and suggests the crystals that could help bring you balance.
AIR Signs - Libra, Aquarius, Gemini
Body - Father of Wands
You’ve been quite stirred up recently; dare I suggest even angry about something, and this heightened, inflaming mood is affecting your physical wellbeing too. Headaches, heartburn, body ache. All of this is cos’ you gotta chill.
Let it go, release the rage, get physical and work it out, talk it through, distract yourself with an adventure- an absorbing one. Whatever has irked you, do whatever it takes to un-irk it.
Mind - Seven of Pentacles
A new idea will spring up when you’re busy doing nothing this month, so make time to do less. Your unconscious has been feverishly reflecting on your story-so-far, and where it’s all heading. It feels like it’s time for a plot twist (and one that even you don’t know about… yet). Give your unconscious mind the time and space to work this all out, and let it spring you a flash of insight. The more you relax, the quicker you’ll access this BRILLIANT idea.
Spirit - Death
The Death card is linked to Scorpios so cosy up to the Scorpio people in your life. They’re a Water sign, so whereas you Air guys are all about analysis and detachment, they’re all about emotion and intensity. What’s to be learned from them this month? Do you need their insight and intuition? Do they need you to help them look at life dispassionately? Go find out.
Your Crystal Prescription: Moonstone is a calming, serene stone that can help bring peace and balance your emotions. Carry a piece with you to help soothe your mind when anger swells or you feel stressed.
Labradorite will help you connect to your intuition and illuminate your path so you can find your way.
EARTH Signs - Capricorn, Virgo, Taurus
Body - Six of Pentacles
It’s nice to be nice, you know. Instead of carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders (as you Earth signs are prone to do) and expecting others to live up to your standards, cut them (and you) some major slack. Let your shoulders sag, your spine unfurl and your body relax as the tension of watching (judging?) what others are doing melts away. It’s not soft to be kind or generous, to demand less. In fact, you’re actually building up your Good Karma points, so get busy giving.
Mind - Eight of Cups
There’s a yearning for a new adventure which you feel pulling at your heart strings but has yet to capture your mind’s attention. Zoom in on this feeling: which area of life does it represent and what is it saying you need to do? This is important, because it won’t go away until you address it. S
You may just surprise everyone with a shock change of direction this month.
Spirit - Four of Cups
Who, in your landscape, would you describe as being a bit ‘meh’? You know, the one person or responsibility you think of as not having much going on, as being a kind of last resort for fun times... Take another look, because you’ve missed something here. Go seek their company, go do what you find dullsville, and really tune in and look again as to whether there’s a shared interest or mindset that you could truly connect over. You’ve overlooked, wrongly, someone or something in your circle which could become a true source of joy.
Your Crystal Prescription: Jasper is extremely grounding, bringing stable energy and strength. It encourages you to focus on practicality and can renew enthusiasm.
Tiger's Eye is great for helping to see other people's perspectives and understanding your own faults, which can help bring harmony and balance to relationships. Aiding perception and bringing clarity, wear Tiger's Eye when you need to resolve a conflict or release a creative block.
FIRE Signs - Leo, Aries, Sagittarius
Body - The Chariot
Preventative measures is the key wellbeing message of this card. Summer is a great time to try new diets, regimes, activities and remedies which may help us stay tip top long term. Have fun experimenting because there’s something beneficial out there for you. Future proofing your health and wellness is never a bad thing, but this month it could be a potent time to make, and feel, a big difference.
Mind - Daughter of Swords
You discover that people who matter to you have not been taking you seriously about something which you DO actually take seriously. Typical! Via a heart-to-heart about this, you will convince them of your intent and, as a result, their opinion will change. However, this episode will result in a bit of a wider mindf*** to you: how many other misperceptions and wrong opinions of you are there out there? People make assumptions, all day long. But don’t get paranoid. Just address these mis judgments as and when you uncover them, that's the best you can do- look after your own side of the street.
Spirit - Two of Cups
Love is in the air… Oh yes, this is the tarot’s LOVE card, indicating truly mutually supportive and lasting relationships, as heavy on the romance as the friendship and respect. So, if you’re attached then make time to make love! And if you’re single, get ready to mingle! Your soul mate, companion or love of your life is out there, so open up your heart and go him them.
Your Crystal Prescription: Malachite can help clear emotional confusion and invite personal growth, giving you the no nonsense pep talk you might need to break you out of negative patterns. Whilst also strengthening your commitment and willpower, Malachite is a powerful ally for breaking addictions or strengthening new routines.
And Rose quartz, the stone of love, will attract love to you or strengthen your own compassion and kindness. Even if it's a big dose of self love you need, Rose Quartz will show you the way.
WATER Signs- Cancer, Pisces, Scorpio
Body - Four of Cups
A new interest in the physical world is long overdue, because you’ve been getting bored and listless, and a listless Water sign is not what we like to see. What stirs you? What looks interesting? What might you like to learn? Your physical self is ready for fresh stimulus to get you revving and firing on all cylinders once more. Seek a new hobby, interest, venture or activity and make a start this month.
Mind - The World
Travel! World domination! Achievement of massive success! All of this is possible with the powerful major arcana card The World - the tarot’s final card and a symbol of attainment and completion. Of course, life’s an ongoing evolution so it’s likely, even if you’re completing something significant, it’s going to transform into another project or chapter. If travel is on your mind, make plans or even get going this next month. The Universe has stuff to show you…
Spirit - Son of Pentacless
There’s an Earth sign you know (Virgo, Taurus or Capricorn) who’s kinda’ defensive and serious, hardworking and reliable, maybe a bit grouchy or sensitive. They need your support this month. They’ve been guarding something about their life quite closely, but they’re ready to share now and who better with than the secret-keeping, compassionate Water sign in their life (that’ll be you).
Your Crystal Prescription: Jade and Citrine are both magical stones that attract prosperity, abundance and success. Citrine can help you manifest your dreams so try mediating with one and imaging your dreams coming true.
Hermatite offers protection and grounding, so if there is someone who needs your support, take this stone along as an aid or use it to help recharge your batteries after a draining day. If you have a friend who is stuck on the past, giving a gift of Hermtite can help anchor them to the now.
