Herbal Tarot Reading New Moon in Aries - 18th April

Welcome to your herbal tarot reading to help you focus your intentions for the New Moon in Aries  cycle ahead. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, a fire sign and the beginning of the astrological cycle, so another new year to celebrate!

My sister gave me a beautiful new pack of tarot cards as a birthday gift last month. I was looking forward to sharing something new with you for this brand new moon. Unfortunately, one of the cards was damaged so I am back to sharing my trusty Herbal Tarot cards again. These things happen. Hopefully I will get a replacement for it and will share them with you soon.

At this time of year, spring here in the northern hemisphere, the skies are brighter, our collective enrgy is rising, feeling bolder, more likely to take risks, and venturing outside for adventures.

Aries is a fire element sign and 'ruled' by Mars, which represents action, courage, boldness and energy. So I felt drawn to doing this reading among plants with characteristics symbolised by the planet Mars. 

I set up my reading cloth among a patch of stinging nettles - infamous for its sharp sting and giving you a defensive nip if you get too close, ready to attack with ferocity, like Mars' swift warrior reflexes - and flowering wild garlic - known locally among wild food foragers for its abundance around this time of year.

Plentiful and beneficial to our health and well being, nettles and wild garlic are both wonderful immune system boosts for those fortunate to have a healthy patch of them growing nearby for fresh spring greens. Ensure you are 100% positive of wild garlic's identity by its garlicky scent so you don't poison yourself on lily of the valley or bluebell leaves which look similar!

Now on to your reading...

Within this Aries impulse to take action, I invite you to take a moment to stop, reflect, and review the recent cycle, taking stock of any learning and growing pains, celebrations and loss in equal measure...


Sit comfortably and 
relax where you are...

Inhale a few deep breaths into your heart, 
closing your eyes if you wish...

Allow your intention for the
next lunar cycle to come to mind...

Ask for any guidance that would be 
supportive for you to receive right now...

When you're ready, open your eyes...
