Want to Know the Energies You Can Expect from This New Moon?

A Special Message About Manifestation Grid From Reverend Pauline Southard

The July New Moon  of 2021 wades ashore on Friday night, July 9 just in time to kick off  the weekend, for those of us who live on the east coast of the USA. For those of us in a partying mood, we will find that there is a certain sense of quiet and inertia in the air, not really conducive to a wild night on the town. It is a great night to take a walk on the boardwalk and stare at the stars instead- perfect for this watery Cancer New Moon
 
At its best, Cancer is empathetic, loving and caring. Cancer is very family and home oriented. They are the natural nurturers of the Zodiac. I think of Cancer as the Mama Sign. Cancer loves to both eat and cook. They can be incredible chefs. Famous Cancer chefs include Anthony Bourdain, Wolfgang Puck and Sandra Lee.
 
When Cancerian energy is used unwisely it can be very moody and can take offence at unintended perceived slights. Cancers are very easily hurt by others. Cancers tend to hide in their shell and be very self-protective. It can take a LOT of effort to gain their trust but once you do, they are incredibly loyal.
 
We really feel like we could use a break right now and this new Moon graces us with an overall quieter feeling. This is a great lunar cycle to spend a lot of time at the beach, take a detox bath at home or to simply meditate by the largest natural body of water you can find. At the Full Moon, bathing under the stars will be a magical experience. Cuddling with your sweetie or your favorite furry friend is highly recommended throughout this lunar cycle!
 
In the larger picture, we can expect to see renewed and vigorous debate about requiring mandatory vaccination for students at all levels of education as the Corona virus Delta variant becomes increasingly widespread. The Republican Party will energetically renew their efforts to oppose the Democratic administration on all CoVid related matters, going far beyond the scope of the obvious health issues.
 
As we have just celebrated the 4th of July holiday, I thought this was a great time to look at the birth chart of the USA. The USA has a specific birth day of course and even a time, so we can create a birth chart to get more information and insight about the inherent nature of our country. The USA has the Sun in Cancer along with Jupiter and Venus all in the 7th house. We are a very self-protective nation, however we want to help and nurture each other and our children. As a Cancer Zodiac sign, this country draws very sharp distinctions between “us” and “”them”. It isn’t surprising then that we have a long history of flirting with isolationism. One of our most well-known examples of this is our hesitancy and delay in entering World War II. The Trump administrations immigration policies and cancellation of international treaties are our most recent plunge into isolationism.
 
The USA has its Moon in Aquarius. This Aquarian Moon encourages us to welcome strangers and foreigners into our communities, to place value on early education and to be open minded and curious. Hence, we have an inherent conflict between our counties’ Sun and Moon. Who we are and how we feel about our identity, people from other counties and the core values we teach our young children will always be subjects of debate and will necessitate wise compromises.
 
I then looked at the Solar Return for the year for the USA. This chart is like a snapshot of the year and gives us a broad idea of what to expect. I always use this chart for my clients as well as their birthdays approach.
 
We are going to be feeling better as a country in general. To some degree, we will be more focused on our immediate environment, communities and homes as we work on reentering a post pandemic world.  This will definitely take longer than expected. The Corona Virus pandemic will continue to make its presence known and will affect our economic recovery. Just like this month’s New Moon chart, the USA’s Solar Return chart also points to the ongoing debate concerning requiring mandatory vaccinations for students at all levels. Global cyber hacking with its vast array of security threats will become an even more prominent issue requiring action at the national level.
 
This month, I once again consulted the “Dreams of Gaia Tarot” by Ravynne Phelan, my favorite deck of the 21st century!  I asked the cards, what do we need to know or do to flow harmoniously with the energies of this New Moon and manifest its most positive potential?
I pulled the minor arcana card, “Eleven of Water.” This card is SO perfect for this Cancer New Moon! Cancer is a water sign, so the New Moon’s element is perfectly represented. This card is all about the conflict between our intellect and our emotions and our need to harmonize them in ways that make us feel happier and give us a push forward. Ms. Phelan tells us that this is a balancing and realignment card. I love her idea that,” We are often motivated simultaneously by both love and fear, since they are two halves of the same whole and each flows into the other. An unhealthy imbalance can occur when fear becomes the dominant force and prevents you from breaking free of painful situations and relationships.” I would add that we need to be able to feel that we are safe when we feel our feelings and that we have the ability to choose how to express them. This will be the core teaching of this lunar cycle.
 
The Sabian Symbol vision for the degree of this New Moon is, “A priest performing a marriage ceremony.” This Sabian vision works on a number of different symbolic levels. Marriage begins the creation of a new family by the newlywed couple. Cancer requires a happy home and family life. You will find that your Cancer friends will frequently tell you stories about their families and childhood.
 
Going deeper, this symbols also refers to the “marriage” and reconciliation between male and female, instinct and reason and referring back to the card that I pulled for this lunar cycle, emotion and intellect. Discovering ways that harmonize these seemingly opposite forces is the key to successfully navigating this Cancer Moon cycle joyfully.
 
Traditionally I put two or three special crystals into the Manifestation Grid that help us to work with the astrological energies of the current New Moon. These additional crystals will energize the Grid and make it even more effective since I choose crystals that reflect the energy of the totality of the chart, not just the sign that the New Moon is in. I would encourage you to work with them as well since they are perfect for this lunar cycle. I love the energy of both of these crystals and I hope that you will enjoy them as well.
 
The lovely and serene Moonstone is the classic Cancer crystal. Moonstone helps us to feel supported and protected as we allow ourselves to truly feel our feelings. It is a wonderful stone that can help us to access our intuitive knowledge.
 
The sweet Pink Opal is my other choice for the Manifestation Grid during this Cancer lunar cycle. Pink Opal, a soft and sensitive stone contains a large percentage of water, continuing this lunation’s watery theme. Pink Opal vibrates at a gentle frequency which enhances its calming and soothing effect on the emotions, helping us to stay emotionally balanced.
 
I have been so grateful for the overwhelming positive response to the Manifestation Grid that I started seven years ago. I love seeing people put their requests into the grid and hearing about all the positive results so many of you have had. Now it is possible to either use the Manifestation Grid in person when you come in to Karma or you may continue to put your requests into the Grid at a distance as you have been doing during the time that the store was closed.
 
Archangel Metatron, my primary guide had channeled this method to help you to put your requests in remotely:
 
#1- Please write your intentions on a piece of paper with the date, feeling love in your heart as you do OR for ANY positive purpose whatsoever!
 
 
#2- Visualize yourself accomplishing your desire. (I would certainly appreciate if you could also request the disappearance of the Corona Virus and the quick healing of ALL of those affected and the healing of all inequality and hate ), feeling love in your heart as you do OR for ANY positive purpose whatsoever!
 
 
#3- Using the picture on the Karma website, intend to put your request into the grid just as you would if you were in the store. Archangel Metatron has told me that he will help you to make that happen. You do NOT need to be good at visualizing! Every morning I will be charging the Grid with long distance Reiki and other powerful energies to help make your wishes come true.
 
#4- When you feel that the process is complete you may either dispose of the paper or put it on your altar, refrigerator or paste it into your journal. It is helpful but not necessary to spend a few minutes every day for the next thirty days repeating Step 3. Your intentions will be active in the Grid for the next 30 days. !
 
 I am so happy that I am now back at A Time for Karma doing readings in person on Fridays and Saturdays. Reading for you over the last 20 years here at Karma has been one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had. Please call either A Time for Karma at (516) 442-3200 or you may call me directly at (516) 445-4242 to schedule your reading.
 
Wishing you a Cancer lunar cycle filled with lots of wonderful beach days and sweet memories.
 
A special thank you to The Crystal Vaults online crystal encyclopedia for their extensive information about crystals. It is unusual to find a site that is so comprehensive.
 
This month, I was delighted to find additional information at Café Astrology, a terrific website with an abundance of diverse astrological information.

Last Month's New Moon Message

A partial solar eclipse ushers in this Gemini lunar cycle in a very sensational way for those of us in the tristate area. If the sky is clear, the Sun will look as though it has had a bite taken out of it shortly after it rises at 5:24 am. The eclipse will continue until 6:30 am when approximately 70% of the Sun will disappear. Although this looks very dramatic, it is never safe to look at the Sun directly as it can cause damage to your eyes or even blindness. One method often used is to put a pair of binoculars on a tripod and without looking through them , aim at the Sun and then project the image on to a piece of white paper. You can also Google safe ways to view the eclipse which I strongly recommend.
Solar eclipses have amazed humanity for thousands of years. A Solar eclipse occurs when the Moon in its orbit around the Earth passes in front of the Sun, blotting it out either completely or in this case partially. Many cultures found this to be a very frightening event. Ancient astrologers were expected to be able to correctly predict when eclipses would occur or they could be executed. During an eclipse, the Moon, mistress of the night, the primal powers within us and the unknown blots out the Sun, whose life giving energy sustains life on earth and is the master of the day and the rational. 
 
Generally, the effects of an eclipse are felt six weeks before the eclipse and several weeks after, although the energetic reverberations can extend to include a much broader time frame. During the time frame of the eclipse energy, we can expect that the feelings and situations that we bury within ourselves will rise to the surface, which often feels quite uncomfortable.
 
The solar eclipse sets the stage for this very complex and challenging Gemini New Moon. Rising to meet these challenges will enable us to evolve spiritually at a very accelerated pace. Coming halfway through this year, this New Moon chart revisits some of the major astrological year themes of the year.
 
Gemini is an air sign- all about thinking, ideas and communication. At its best Gemini is very social, charismatic, witty, clever, and adventurous and loves to learn. The twins really just want to have fun whatever they are doing.  Trust me you will never be bored! When Gemini energy is used unwisely, it can be indecisive, inconsistent, superficial, impatient and at worst deceptive.
 
You can easily imagine that Gemini, who loves fun and games is going to be a very unhappy camper when its thrown into partial darkness, struggling to stay afloat in the watery hidden twelfth house (for those of us in the tri state area.) To add insult to injury, Mercury, the planet of communication and how we think is still retrograde. This Mercury retrograde began on May 29, 2021 and ends on June 22, 2021.  Mercury retrograde occurs three times a year for approximately three weeks at a time. This Mercury retrograde will be very potent as Mercury travels retrograde in the sign of Gemini which it rules. Gemini is all about communication, socializing and transportation. Be sure to back up your computers, laptops and phones. Make sure you double and triple check plans and trips, whether they are virtual or actual. If you are depending on Zoom or similar platforms for business or school having a secondary device could save the day. Perhaps car buying or leasing could be put off until Mercury goes direct.   
 
This Mercury retrograde is just one degree away from the Gemini Solar Eclipse New Moon just adding to the confusion. Throw in an applying square to Neptune and you have the perfect recipe for all kinds of misunderstanding with those you love and those you work with. Expect to come to the wrong conclusion and have others do the same with consequences reminiscent of a Shakespearean tragedy/comedy! 
 
Unfortunately, some of those mistaken ideas will affect the national agenda while this country is working on some crucial programs. Infrastructure, although certainly not a juicy topic, is of vital concern to all of America now as so many of our roads and bridges are crumbling. Gemini rules roads, transit system, the Post Office and neighboring countries. I’m concerned that ultimately Congress will be unable to agree on an infrastructure bill although it’s in all of our interest for them to do so. 
 
The elephant in the room that we need to directly confront now is the ongoing Saturn square Uranus transit. Most astrologers feel that the Saturn/Uranus square is the most important astrological aspect of 2021. Since Saturn and Uranus move relatively slowly, its influence will be felt all year. The current Saturn Uranus square is in alignment between 2020 and 2023 which coincides with the CoVid Pandemic. The exact aspects between the planets happen in February, June and December 2021, and it’s close again in October 2022 but not exact.
 
 We get our next exact hit on June 14, 2021 just four days after this New Moon. The first square occurred in mid-February of this year. We saw the freakishly cold Winter Storm Uri that pommeled the southwest and caused so much destruction in Texas. The last square of 2021 will be on Dec.24, 2021.
 
Saturn is the planet of authority and discipline. Uranus is the planet of revolution and the desire for freedom. Saturn creates while Uranus destroys all that has become stagnant and outdated. To further complicate matters, Saturn is in Aquarius which Uranus rules and so personifies the Aquarian love of freedom and anarchy. Uranus is in Taurus, a very conservative stability loving sign. Is your head spinning yet? Just imagine two heavyweight fighters with serious handicaps fighting it out and you will get a great idea of how this energy feels!
 
When we put all the pieces together of this action packed and complex New Moon chart, we can expect all kinds of mind boggling craziness, some of which may seem comical at times. More UFO secrets may emerge, where Corona Virus actually came from and crypto currency secrets all seem like likely topics that the media will spend time reporting. A potential serious national security issue is the ongoing business of international cyber attacks on our infrastructure. These attacks certainly fit in well with all of the major themes of this Gemini Solar Eclipse New Moon chart.
 
In our personal life, this can be a time of confusion and uncertainty. We are still dealing with the fallout of the global pandemic. Our work and social lives are very different than they were pre pandemic. This New Moon will bring up all of our issues concerning how we are connected to the world in all the myriad ways possible. Institutions, ideas, paradigms that we have taken for granted may change so much that they will seem unrecognizable. The people in our lives may act in ways that shock us. Our friends, families and lovers will be experiencing the same energies and will be responding to these changes as well, potentially causing tension, misunderstanding and major miscommunication. Secrets may surface now with dramatic consequences.
 
So, what do we do now that we know this? I turned once again to the “Dreams of Gaia Tarot” by Ravynne Phelan, my favorite deck of the 21st century!  I asked the cards, what do we need to know or do to flow harmoniously with the energies of this potent New Moon and manifest its most positive possible potential?
I pulled the major arcana card, The Maiden.” The Maiden is a card that tells us focus within and to seek our own answers. We see the Maiden in a beautiful forest surrounded by roses, a friendly rabbit and a magical butterfly spirit ally. She is happily absorbed in her own world and not concerned with anything or anybody else. When we look closely at the card, we see she is in a forest with blue trees but our Maiden is completely comfortable despite the unusual environment. So, although we may feel like the world is somewhat skewed, we need to go within to find our own equilibrium.  This is a great way to deal to with this New Moon! 
 
My catch phrase for this New Moon is out of the head and into the body. Physical activity that makes us move and sweat will be a great way to deal with this Gemini New Moon chart that has lots of air and water but has little earth or fire. Gardening, taking a walk in nature or any kind of meditative imaginative activity that helps us to get into the state of creative flow will feel wonderful.  Find a slap stick stupid comedy on Netflix and LAUGH!
 
Traditionally I put two or three special crystals into the Manifestation Grid that help us to work with the astrological energies of the current New Moon. These additional crystals will energize the Grid and make it even more effective since I choose crystals that reflect the energy of the totality of the chart, not just the sign that the New Moon is in. I would encourage you to work with them as well since they are perfect for this lunar cycle. I love the energy of both of these crystals and I hope that you will enjoy them as well.
 
My first choice this month is the lovely Fluorite. Fluorite acts as a “psychic vacuum cleaner”, clearing the atmosphere of cluttered thoughts, confusion and negativity from the environment. It can assist one in thinking clearly and in making important decisions. Fluorite is an important ally to have as it speaks of the power of thought, focus and concentration and encourages one’s thinking of become orderly and coherent. Its energy acts to quieten worried thoughts and anxiety caused by fear of the future which is completely perfect for this lunation. 
 
Beautiful Amazonite is a wonderful stone for this lunar cycle. It is called the Stone of Courage. Amazonite empowers us to search ourselves and discover our own truths and integrity, and to move beyond fear of judgment or confrontation with others to live in alignment with our beliefs and values. It provides the freedom to express one’s thoughts and feelings.
 
I have been so grateful for the overwhelming positive response to the Manifestation Grid that I started eight years ago. I love seeing people put their requests into the grid and hearing about all the positive results so many of you have had. Now it is possible to either use the Manifestation Grid in person when you come in to Karma or you may continue to put your requests into the Grid at a distance as you have been doing during the time that the store was closed.

 I have been deeply touched by the positive feedback at I have gotten from my phone clients. Although I started my career as a reader working as a phone psychic many years ago, I have read almost exclusively at Karma in person for the last 20 years. I have found that there has been an incredible amount of high vibrational information that is coming through now during my phone readings. Reading for all of you has been one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had.  You can connect with me either by e-mail:

Full Moon

New Moon Manifestation Ritual

During the new moon phase the moon goes from smaller to bigger so it is a great time to manifest anything you would like to increase.

Hand write a list of what you wish to manifest on a piece of paper. Be very specific!

Go outside and read your wishes aloud to the moon. Afterward thank the moon and the universe for listening.

Fold your paper and keep it in a safe and prominent place, such as your altar. Read your list daily, outside if possible, thanking the moon and the universe every time.

Do this every day until the full moon.
When the moon is full, read your list one final time, then burn it in the flame of a candle, sending it up to the universe.

Trust and know that your wishes will be manifested at the perfect time and in the perfect way for you.

Information papers for this ritual as well as for many items in our store are available free of charge every day at Karma!
