Dark Moon Forecast for October 30, 2016 : Pushing through Conflict and Coming to Terms with our Personal Responsibilities

This new cycle will challenge us in both our external and internal world. Reminding us that the external realm is merely a reflection of what lies within us: our inner truth of character, what empowers us and drives us forward, and what shadows we have hidden which still go bump in heavy nights of the soul. Combining that all, we are encouraged to move forward with Strength and Courage.


This Dark Moon brings an end to a phase of short falls and incomplete work. What begins is an internal inspiration that wishes to make changes in the external world that we are dissatisfied with. What helps us prepare for this is to start pushing back against that which is impeding us: oppressive circumstances, negative people who attempt to crush our dreams. What helps us allow this new phase to enter and pass is to re-asses everything from a different perspective. What is the truth within us and how is it reflected in the outer world? As we push through conflict, instead of thinking about how actions and situation are placed on us (ie Victim Mentality), think of how it is a reflection of the shadow within us, as in how may we be creating and affecting this conflict (Mentality of an Empowered Co-Creator with the Universe). Going from wondering why people are attacking us, to thinking about how are our actions are causing the “conflict” that we face. This brings us to what Crowns us, which is Judgement: coming to terms with everything and acknowledging our personal responsibility in what is transpiring. This awareness brings better judgement in our choices. What grounds us is taking care of any erratic energy that comes from anxiety or lack of preparedness when facing the myriad issues and conflicts, calming down the inner energy so that it flows in sync and supports our mind, body & spirit. Then being more hands on with what is happening around us so the external world reflects our internal structure. Let the energy of preparation transmute into the outer world: How can I be better prepared? What should I work on? What steps should I take? What aspects of my life do I need to understand better? How can I Empower myself? What is my intuition telling me about preparations?

Looking more into the energies around us, in the distant past there was a time when we were in strict control over our own domain and felt like an Emperor of our own realm. Then as time passed, that cycle ended and now another has come to pass. Right now the Universe wants us to know that, as we start this new cycle, wee are Free and the only things manipulating the situation are ourselves and our egos. As this new cycle stretches us both internally and externally, it is best for us to be prepared. Have our energy organized so that we can support ourselves and have the drive to keep going. The incoming challenges is a streak of bad luck, which will frustrate us, but as we move forward with Strength the conflict and seemingly bad luck makes us focus on what is most important so that we can let go of any unnecessary burdens and all that which no longer serves us or assist us in reaching our goal. We worry about losing our optimistic drive to move forward, so we can add the self-care practice of tending to our inner dream and reminding ourselves that it will happen. The outcome card shows what we are building this cycle, and that is Inner Wealth: Inner Strength, Courage, Confidence, Character, Integrity, Intuition, Focus & Intention, and more!


The theme of this cycle is: Creating our own Path.


The Black Moon reveals a need to focus and ignore external distractions as we move forward into emotional fulfillment

Today is the day of the Black Moon for those in the Western Hemisphere of the Earth. The Black Moon is the Second Dark Moon of the month and you can read about it at It is a time when we can really sink inside of ourselves and find the source to our troubles. It can heal and guide us on our journey.


During this Black Moon, what passes is the Incomplete transition due to thoughts that keeps us entangled in action without pause, what assists us in letting go is engaging the inner self instead of running away from the situation. We undergo internal movement to bring our consciousness to a calmer state so that we can intrinsicly reflect on everything and prepare for the transition. We begin a phase of emotional fulfillment and we can embrace this new cycle by being open and not keeping secrets. We allow the self to carry what is necessary within us so that we can express truthful communication outward. (For example carrying inner strength and knowledge that allows us to process situation and speak of our needs).

What is revealed within us is a false need for control while attempting to diligently work on our studies while being distracted by disjointed inspiration that a misunderstanding of emotions which seem chaotic. To remedy this we let go of the external need for control everything, relax, allow the thoughts and feelings to pass gently through our psyche as we focus on what is important now.

What is at the base of this are the illusions of the mind: fragments of our subconscious psyche that are crushing the logical mind and breaking down the barriers that we have created within our consciousness to block out what we do not wish to see. What is best for us in this moment is to focus on what is important within us and block out all other external distractions. Dive deep within ourselves and embrace our true being, our desires and dreams, however much they seem to be contradicted by logical reality.


A look into the underside of the deck reveals that we do not feel at harmony with our environment so we are working on and with self-love at the moment, as we prepare to drive ourselves forward with our venture. Best to keep the end goal in sight as the world opens up to embrace us. In the past we felt disconnected from financial security, and subsequently vulnerable and unprepared. So now we are delaying things and checking with our inner guidance to make sure that we are headed in the right direction. We are fearful of losing touch with ourselves and our emotions while at the same time hoping to be less sensitive to whatever pitfalls may come. The outcome shows that we may be too distracted to build externally, so we will develop Internally.

With all of this, remember to stay optimistic! We will succeed!


Dark Moon Solar Eclipse Sept 1, 2016 Resurgence of Order

This is a really strong Dark Moon, and combined with a Solar Eclipse, it really opens us up to realization that we Can move past the blocks in our way and We Can Make It!

We release our inhibitions that come from self-doubt and prevent us from listening to ourselves. The lesson is to keep driving forward through everything that stands in our way; despite of the difficulties we encounter and the insecurities within us. Finding happiness and contentment in what we Have, (our little cloister of happiness within the eye of the storm) will help us understand how to keep going. Being able to reflect from a place of calm complacency allows us to learn about our own self-drive, how to connect to it, keep it going, and replenish our fuel when we are feeling worn out.

The shadow aspect of ourselves that this Eclipse shows, is a tendency to drop all our burdens or let them build to overflow, consequently we are either unable or unwilling to handle them. This reveals that we have been focusing on what we are upset about, the pile of “mistakes” and “mishaps” of life.

What New Beginning the Dark Moon brings us is a good distance & Perspective that allows us to plan our goals and nurture our progress. The Energy it brings is one of Inspiration, delicate, gentle and comforting. It lifts us up and carries us through the night as we rest. To allow this to pass we can kick ourselves into gear and Get Going!

The main issue at our foundation, and disturbing our ability to ground, is the feeling of emotional disconnect and dissonance within our lives, as our connections with others either seem strained or dysfunctional. This emotional disturbance causes us to feel deep seated dissatisfaction over a seemingly inability to find good work or see any progress in what we are doing, which creates a sort of “glass ceiling” that prevents us from reaching out goals. So this new moon solar eclipse is revealing all our frustrations so that we must acknowledge them, face them, and then work through the as we kick ourselves back into gear.

dark side

A look into the underlying influences surrounding this situation reveals that we are in a deep state of upset, where we feel like we are emotionally drained. What is coming though, is freedom from this cage of negative emotions as we kick into gear and get moving! In the distant past we faced lots of fast movement, then underwent deep mental anxiety that we had to overcome, which brought us to this state of emotional upset. In the future we will be unwilling to leave a situation that’s not quite right for us. What is best right now is to aim to balance our shit out! Time & Money in the physical realm, and a mind/body/spirit connection with the Physical Realm. We currently have some projects that are not coming along because we have stopped working on the, or are not working well in a team environment, Or we are flat out refusing to engage with others at all in our work. The environment has been throwing us into “problems” so that we feel compelled to tackle everything head out in an effort to try and balance everything. In fact, we Really hope for a deep sense of “wa” or peaceful harmony with inner self, and balance with the outer physical realm. In the end, we will develop strict discipline in order to get our lives back in order!

The Empress shows us to remind us of our creative power and magnetic persona which we can harness and embody, in order to attract what is best for us on our path.

Dark Moon July 2016 Release the Incessant Fire that Drives us to Begin a Soothing Emotional Flow

This Dark Moon felt perplexing and powerful to me, I was manifesting, clearing, uncovering, learning, and unsure about what exactly I was going to be starting. So I did a reading on:

  • What was Revealed
  • What was Cleared
  • What was Released
  • What Begins Now
  • How to Prepare
  • Grounding and Crowning

As the darkness stirred the shadows of our insecurities, our lack of self-confidence and feeling of security was revealed. What was cleared was the need to constantly be out and about, as the darkness came, we huddled into ourselves to rest and recuperate from activity. What was released was the urge to constantly tackle problems head one, like a galloping horse with hooves on fire! We no longer need to charge into everything. So now we begin our emotional development, nurturing the blossoming feelings and allowing them to fill our lives with joy! The Dark Moon uncovered and cleared up what had been unconsciously driving us, so now we can take the time to reconnect with our emotional selves and allow ourselves to feel each moment. To help prepare for this we should respect the privacy of friends, family, clients, and ourselves. Speak with discretion as we do not need to share all of the minor details of our lives with the collective, especially when we are planning launches and massive projects. Also retain a good ethical code of privacy with friends and clients who speak with us.

New Moon June 2016 details

As we travel and move forward, relying on intuition and emotion instead of the rationale that everyone understands, we should not let others lead us astray with criticism or statements of worry which undermine our confidence and resolve. Keep your eyes on your dream, that magically unfolds itself, petal by petal, materializing into this realm from the energy that you cast forth. Be confident and mysterious as the people around you wonder at how your masterful control over finances. From all your hard work and careful planning, comes the final transformation into a King of the Land!

What Grounds us is looking into the future while retaining the sweet memories of the past in our hearts. What crowns us is flying above the confusion and seeing the Truth.

Also, this New Moon coincided with the arrival of a New Deck! I happily found The Wooden Tarot and Earthbound Oracle decks I had ordered a few weeks ago. I was a little anxious about whether it would arrive before I left for my road trip even though i was Sure it would arrive, so upon seeing it, I was happily validated. I love how different it is from other “Tarot” decks, and I using these decks without any instructions is a fun challenge!

Using the Earthbound Oracle, I asked What phase are we in now?


As our life inspires us to create and our sleep nurtures us and nourishes us with dreams and otherworldly connections.

I also asked for a personal phase reading for me and got Wisdom
As I find and retain balance with myself and allow the healing flow of emotion to nourish my mind, body and soul. Replenishing the drive that was burning fast and out of control last month when I was severely over-worked. The Balancing of my inner and outer self while recognizing and caring for my emotional body allows for the combination of intuition of logic, from which Wisdom comes forth.

I will be on a road trip for the next two weeks so I probably will not be posting. But you can keep track of my adventures on my instagram page @luna.obscura.tarot

New Moon Tarot Forecast for June 4, 2016 : Moving away from skill exchange and taking care of ourselves

What is passing is the period of giving and receiving for charity/donation. We come to terms with not worrying over what we should give and what people can receive. That whole “skill exchange”, “work trade” and “donation based” phase of our lives is Over and now we will start nurturing ourselves and nourishing our emotional development instead of turning to the external world for gratification and alleviation. What helps us surrender to the whole process is tuning into our center and balancing our lives so that we can take proper care of ourselves.
What grounds us in the whole process is being in harmony with our environment by letting the right people in our lives and making responsible decisions that keep us in a nurturing social environment. What crowns is working through our obsessions to finally see other solutions to our problems. Knowing that it’s not about finding the One path of solutions and happiness, it’s about working with what suits us best out if the plethora of pathways that are available.

Here’s my video, again what I wrote here better thought out than what I said on Periscope live stream when the cards popped up. Let me know what you think of this written forecast in comparison to my streamed video forecast.
