July is a special month for us because it’s my youngest brother’s birthday and time for the local county fair back home on the farm. July is also the month we had our big wedding party and renewed our vows with our family and friends. Our official wedding was a few years prior with only a very few people in attendance. It was a sweet, simple and short ceremony in the forest. It was essentially boiled down to the mayor officiating the wedding and saying “Do you? and Do you?” to us, but that is a story for another day.
This July monthly bullet journal cover page is inspired by the hydrangea wedding bouquet that I made myself for both wedding ceremonies. The watercolor hydrangea cutaway cover page is also inspired by a pin that I found on Pinterest.
Along with my monthly cover page I’m also doing a cover page for my tarot card that I pulled for this month. I did a year ahead spread that you can see here! This is the card that I pulled for July, The Mother of Swords from the Wild Unknown Deck.
The Mother of Swords represents sharp, perspective. The mother of swords puts her sharp perceptions to use as a therapist, doctor or teacher. This card can sometimes represent going through a difficult time. During which, there is potential for her criticism to soar. This is something that I know that I need to work on. I am a helper and very perceptive, but I can be too sharp with my criticism at times and too “bitey”…. so I’ll be working on keeping that in check this month.
