Weekly Herbal Moon Insights for week starting 7th July 2019.


The moon is waxing, getting fuller as we move through the week. Mercury retrograde begins this week, but don’t stress! Read on to find out how to make the Mercury retrograde be of benefit to you…


Spirit Animal Oracle Card: Wombat Spirit – “Be at home”

This card is so timely for this week, with Mercury retrograde wreaking havoc on travel plans + the sun in Cancer giving us domestic goddess vibes. On a more spiritual note, the Wombat Spirit reminds us to feel comfort + freedom within ourselves, so we can be at home with ourselves + those around us. All is well, the Wombat whispers to us…


Herbal Tarot card: King of Cups – Saw Palmetto

The King of Cups asks us to tap into our masculinity + be open. Give openly, be transparent in your dealings, and in return you will receive openly too. This card also symbolises passion, intimacy + creativity – the waxing moon is a beautiful time for creating, feel inspired!



Sunday 7th July:

Mercury turns retrograde in Leo today until July 31st. Mercury retrograde is a time for inner-reflection, and as the effects of the retrograde are most noticeable at the start + end of the retrograde, you may like to spend time today journaling + meditating. Avoid launching new projects, travelling and making big decisions during the Mercury retrograde where possible. The Mercury retrograde provides us with an opportunity to reflect, meditate + accept what life throws at us. The challenges that you may encounter during Mercury retrograde are lessons from the Universe, designed to strengthen you. 

Monday 8th July:

The waxing crescent moves into Libra today. Follow your creative or artistic pursuits today!

Tuesday 9th July:

First quarter moon in Libra today. Libra rules the lower back & kidneys, so it’s a good time to ensure you stay hydrated + do some gentle back exercises like yoga.

Wednesday 10th July:

The waxing gibbous moves into Scorpio today – do something that will give your self-confidence a BOOST today!

Friday 12th July:

 The moon moves in Sagittarius late today. Tonight, or over the weekend, is a good time for an attraction ritual, especially if you’d like to attract customers, success, or members to your spiritual group.






Being at home – physically, mentally + spiritually
