Full Moon Energy!

Updated: July 15, 2019

Between a partial lunar eclipse, a Full Moon in Capricorn, and Mercury having turned retrograde, this is a week full of profound and powerful energy! (And it’s my birthday this week too, yay!!)

Last week we talked about the importance of forgiveness, and now that we’ve had a week to practice forgiving ourselves and others, it’s the perfect time to do some personal inventory and take a deeper look at some of the ancestral patterns that may still be plaguing us. This is a week where we need to look to the past and see what we can clean up, whether that’s negative thoughts, feelings, or behaviors. Then, from that clean space, we can make ourselves ready to create our intentions for how we want to move forward in the New Moon cycle in a couple of weeks. 

In the Weekly Oracle Card Guidance and Lesson, I pulled a couple of extra cards from my Enchanted Map deck that reminded us about the value of setting intentions. When we have a deliberate intention, we can discover anything can be made manifest in the outer world to reflect that intention.

Intention isn’t something you do, but rather a force behind everything in the Universe; it’s what makes an acorn a tree, causes the sun to rise, and gives us life. Intention is part of what I call the All That Is, the vast web of energy that flows through our Universe. That energy is always by nature creating and when you choose to harness it through your attention you will find that you can step out of chaos and into divine order. When you align yourself with that source—that intention—you tap into the profound power of the Universe. With intention, you also connect with your intuition and Spirit’s guidance for your highest good. In other words, with pure intentions, you step onto your highest path.

The most powerful intentions are grounded in your greatest values and purest desires. Many of us have been taught to treat intentions like goals and thus “intend” for a new car, more money, and so on and there is value in that. But, ultimately, the most powerful intentions are based on how you want to feel and an understanding of what matters most to you, such as love, kindness, reverence, and making a difference. You must make a commitment to align your worldly actions with your inner values. 

Remember, intentions are a force behind everything in the Universe. If you want to tap into the power of that force and attract what’s in your highest good, then it’s important to ground your intentions in your deepest values. 

This week, make a list of intentions that reflect your deepest values and desires. Remember to pay attention to underlying emotions and motivations. Create a list of your purest intentions and read it each day. 

Here are a few of my favorite intentions:

  • I create my own happiness and nourish my soul.
  • I consciously choose thoughts and behaviors that create value and peace.
  • I love, value, and respect myself, others, and the world around me.

This week has some big clearing magic, so use this full moon’s supercharged energy to illuminate the patterns you want to release so you can set your intentions for the next cycle early and practice who you want to become. The answers come as you clean house to create clarity so that the Universe can spring into manifestation mode after the eclipse and the full moon phase is over. And then, the Full Moon on Tuesday will be profound!

What ancestral patterns do you need to clean up for this Full Moon? What would it feel like to be liberated from them? Please share with us in the comments!

    I love the new video production for your weekly readings!!!! You rock Colette!!

  • Katie

    I did some major forgiving this week, and it feels really good. Grudges are exhausting.

    I’ve done some major forgiving this week. Holding grudges is exhausting.

    Thank you for this, Colette, because I’ve been reading a lot of negative things about this eclipse, and feeling discouraged as it’s been rough these past few months for a lot of us. I’m now actually looking forward to tomorrow night, and stating my intentions to the universe with a pure heart, expecting that it will all work for my highest good, and that I will come out of this period in a better place than where I was when it began!

  • Joleah

    Wow, this is so incredibly powerful! Amazingly, I pulled the tidy up card yesterday …it goes perfectly with your reading and this blog post! Thank you so much for the advice and actionable steps outlined here…you are amazing and I love and appreciate you so much!!!! 💗💗💗

    Hi Colette: I so much enjoy your site. I have several sets of your oracle cards, but the Mystical Shaman cards are my favorite. My connection with these cards has blown me away. They Make Me Happy! . Thank You.


  • Rose Mizell

    So interesting. Just yesterday I set an intention to be who I am born to be which is an Empath. I am 58 and have been running away from this my entire life. (My back story is quite similar to yours). I recently decided it was time to clean house and fully embrace my given gifts. I’m being made aware that I can’t move forward without doing so. Reading what you wrote further confirms to me that I am on the right path. Thank you Colette.

    Dear Colette ;
    Wishing you a memorable “birth”- day. May the universe shower its blessings on you!!! So grateful for all of the information , insights, wisdom and clarity you share with so many each week.

  • Danielle

    You are the “angel” messenger to my questions. Each time I have a question, being “on hold”, there you are with the answer !!! Yesterday I was meditating to the Au-delà regarding my Future, better regarding my Present and how I wanted to say goodbye to the Past. To let go (try anyway) of FEARS ! and Voilà, your blog today is about intentions (my inner voice, my heart, my soul, my LOVE); I will ask for guidance sitting with the Full Moon. Thank you so much Colette.

    This was another powerful reading for me. It allowed a huge reset for me today – let go of an old victim story and rewrite it. It really shifted my mindset and energy, and then… the following cards cemented this wake-up call. Thanks – AGAIN!
    Your creation, (HAPPY BIRTHDAY beautiful), has been such a gift to me to my learning and growing! 🙂 Big hugs Colette. Love the new video display as well, thanks Mark? 🙂 You guys are great.

  • Tricia D.

    First, this is such a great blog post. I needed to read this today. I have many ancestral patterns that need to be broken, and using intentions to get there feels right. Thank you for insight, Colette. I feel empowered and prepared to head into this full moon.

    PS – Happy Birthday! I hope your day is as special, if not more special, than you 🙂

  • Beth

    Happy Birthday to you…Happy Birthday to you…May your day be as special as you are…Happy Birthday to you!

    Colette, wishing you a wonderful year filled with all the love your heart can hold, abundance you can imagine and perfect health. 1958 was a very good year, as I am also a 1958 baby, Aug 25. The colors in your blouse are beautiful on you. I’m finely getting back to normal (whatever that is) from OPALAZOOA, my daily cards keep repeating, thus telling me what I need to do. Thank you for all your wonderful knowledge and sharing it with your students. I’m so grateful that I found your classes.

    Happy Birthday for July, my two lovely daughters also share this month. Your reading this week was so relevant as l was told the same thing from a medium.
    This reinforced the path and decisions l am needing to take. Again thanks, always look forward to your readings. Much love to you. Keep on doing what you do.

    Wow! I haven’t seen much of your work but I have certainly heard such wonderful things about you. I am so glad my path has finally led me to you so that I can continue to learn and grow.
    Those cards were really beautiful and really resonated with me. Thank you.
    Thanks for what you do & Happy Full Moon!
    Kindly, Kelly

    Dear beautiful Colette. Thank you for once again sharing your insights. It has made me decide to share a “biggie” that I had today while sending out reiki to my friends and family.
    Throughout human history there has been the constant thread of a belief that one must die to save the rest of us. This idea of sacrifice has been heavily promoted through our legends and our religions and often crops up in books and films. We have come to accept this idea as truth.
    Today I received a very strong message from “All that is” that we have it all wrong. No one needs to suffer so that others can thrive. No one needs to die so others may live. It was only ever about the contrast (between life and death, for example). To help us appreciate more what it feels like to be truly alive; what it feels like to thrive; to have what we want in our lives – as you said, to know our deepest values and to appreciate more, what they bring to our being.
    So we can all FREE ourselves from this misunderstanding. Sacrifice isn’t necessary. Suffering isn’t necessary. We can all set our intentions more clearly, without this old concept dragging us down. What do you think about this?
    Not sure if this has made much sense. That moment of ah-hah is always hard to put into words! I hope it creates a space for new thought for anyone who reads it.
    Anyway, that’s my bit for today.
    Happy Birthday friend with tons of stars and sprinkles.

    Hope you have a lovely birthday Colette. Mine is the 15th. I’ve already had it as Monday was yesterday down here in the southern hemisphere. Love your work ❤

  • Lizzie Walker

    Hi Colette! I love your readings and for me it was spot on. I want to wish you a Happy birthday week! Us Cancers need to stick together. *Grins* First, my dad passed on 4th of July. Went out like a bang, just the way he was in my life. Full of energy, power but most importantly love. Saturday was my birthday and I was a gloomy Gus naturally, but then my husband and I went out and like magic the “intention” to enjoy and celebrate my life, my mom and dad’s lives brought a new meaning to living to the fullest. Both of my parents suffered in sickness before their deaths and yet they lived and would want that for me. I feel a lightness of being that I’ve never allowed myself to feel before. I want you to know that your readings and your cards ( I have several desks) have enhanced my life. In particular your Oracle school mini lessons (I’ve signed up for the wait list for Oracle school and I’m so excited!) have been so enlightening and have helped me accept the gifts spirit has always been leaving for me, but that I’ve been ignoring. I am deeply thankful that I found your site, but most importantly that I’ve re-engaged my intuitive self. Many blessings to you an yours.

    Happy Birthday Week Colette! You look so beautiful and your vibrant lovely energy is so engaging. I look forward to your weekly readings and always feel so inspired each week. This week’s reading is so relevant to what’s going on for me and in the lives of those close to me. It is reassuring to hear your words and know I am on the right path. Thank you so much for your inspirational messages!

    Colette, enjoy a happy birthday week! I felt your oracle guidance and lesson was calm, clear, settling and rings true. Thank you for being so generous. 🎂🌳

  • Lisbeth

    Thank you Colette for your generous lessons. This rings clear as a bell, and I will re-listen. Have a very happy birthday week. Love toward you! 🎂🎊🌷🌳

  • Diana

    It felt amazing to forgive certain people for things this week, I’m hoping to hold onto that feeling but it’s hard because I know I will have to face these people again and they haven’t stopped doing the bad behavior that I’m forgiving them for, I guess my current line of defense is to ignore them and not get mad in the moment because that’s why they are acting like that, to get a reaction out of me. (not very mature but that’s what we’re dealing with here I guess) Other suggestions are welcome if anyone has any!

  • Veena

    Happy Birthday Colette! You and your cards are Amazing! I love your weekly Oracle videos! Thank you so much!

  • Sara

    Happy Birthday Colette! Thank you for your beautiful words. I have been struggling with forgiving myself and letting go of my shame from the past. I am in recovery and have been able to find my part and forgive others but forgiving myself is so much harder. Your words help me know I am where I’m supposed to be and loved as I am. Thank you again.
