New Moon Reading for July

Yesterday was the New Moon, and following what has become my ritual, I drew two cards from the Tarot of the Sidhe (Schiffer, 2011).  These were to look at what I should release over this moon, and what I should embrace.

Interestingly, the answer had some parallels to the reading Eowyn did for me over the weekend.  I need to let go of past sorrows, and instead embrace a sense of emotional openness to the possibilities of life.  Okay, that is a work in progress...

For this morning's meditation, I felt drawn to chant Om Mani Padme Hum, and decided to use my rose quartz mala.  I did a complete mala for the single chant (rather than a half mala each of the two chants to Dhanvantari and Tara).  This is a lovely mantra seeking purification, wisdom and compassion.  Yep, I could do with those!  I also feel the rose quartz, symbol of loving kindness, was more than just a practical choice.
