First Quarter Moon Reading 8/15/21

Card images and excerpts from the Magickal Herb Oracle by Cheralyn Darcey

Dawn (what has happened or the energies from the past that are affecting the present):

Coltsfoot (Tussilago farfara)

“Lifestyle changes are indicated, as is a reminder to clear away things both physical and conceptual that are clogging up your environment, mind and being. Get rid of what you don’t need or you know is not doing you any good. It is time for meditation and deeper thought and a focus on where you are placing your energy and time. Ensure you remain positive and do not involve yourself in gossip, negative energy or underhand tactics, because the negative effects will be greater than usual right now.”

Midday (the present situation and the main theme of your question):

Damiana (Turnera diffusa)

“The pursuit of what you long for and the achievement of its obtainment are indicated. Something you long for could be in the spotlight and having a greater ripple effect through your life than usual. Is this a good thing? Perhaps, but be careful your desires do not cloud your focus or true purpose. Ambitions, passions and goals are all in a state of progression, as are calculated risks. A very important concern will come into your life shortly that needs your full commitment and attention. Relationships become more physical and passionate.”

Stars (what the future may hold and possible paths you may take):

Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale)

“There is a great power and vitality to be found in letting go. Your daily routine or something that you keep doing the same way needs to change. A far better future is promised if you will just let go and trust in the power of walking away. Room needs to be made for what you want to come into your life. New ideas, healing and growth are just around the corner, but you need to release, cleanse and be ready to accept. Forgive and forget; it’s time to move on.”

My interpretation…

Getting rid of what you didn’t need has allowed something you’ve longed for to come into your life. Moving forward you will still need to make some changes, however. This thing you’ve longed for needs you to let go of even more than you have already before it fully manifests. Most of us have something that seems unattainable that we would love to have in our lives. A person, a job, a way of life, etc. What we don’t seem to realize is that we only need to let go of what isn’t serving us anymore and it opens us up to the possibility of it happening. Letting go is very freeing. Seeing our value as a result is empowering. None of it is necessarily easy, so take your time and keep making progress. You will get there. Trust in yourself!
