Reclaiming Friday the 13th Love Spell

 
IMG_5583.JPG
 

Ecstasis Divinitus and Blessed Friday the 13th! This day and night of the Goddess is honoured by Priestesses and Witches for its power and magick. I invite you to shed (if you haven't already) the patriarchal spell that was cast on Friday the 13th and spread as a day of bad luck and evil.

This is truly such an auspicious day! Did you know?

Any month’s 13th day will fall on a Friday if the month starts on a Sunday. Friday is the day of Venus (Viernes, Vendredi), the 'Goddess of Love' planet herself! 13 is a potent number of sacred mysteries in both of the dark and light attributes of the Goddess.


Significances of the Number 13

There are 13 Moon cycles in a year
13 degrees of movement inthe moon's passage
The ancient Lunar calendar had 13 months
A traditional coven has 13 members
13 Archetypes of the Goddess
13th Apostle was Mary Magdalene
In the Hebrew faith, age 13 is considered to be an adult
There are 13 cards of each suit in a deck of cards
and 13 Tones in the Mayan calendar


SIMPLE VENUS LOVE SPELL FOR THE WANING MOON 

Friday the 13th is a particularly good time to cast a spell for love, healing, and prosperity.

You will need:
1 long red/pink ribbon or cord
1 red or pink candle
Rose oil

Be in a quiet place undisturbed (On the Earth if possible):

1. On Friday at the Venus hour (11am or 11pm if possible), call upon the Goddess of Love as Venus, Freja, Aphrodite or any other Goddess you feel resonant with. Light and burn your candle that has been anointed with rose oil. Envision in your mind's eye that which you wish to experience in relation to love or prosperity as you wrap your ribbon or cord around your right index finger.

2. Place your pointer finger (still with ribbon) on your forehead at your 3rd eye (a quarter inch between and above your eyebrows). Concentrate your focus to `see`your desired outcome for 3 minutes.

3. Intuitively ask of yourself and with the support of your chosen Goddess that whatever needs to fall away for this desired outcome to arise, be revealed with ease & grace. Give thanks to the Goddess.

Blessed Be!
 

~ Starting Next Week ~

 
 

Each month with Ritual, Mentorship, & Sisterhood you are guided by Goddess Wisdom and the Power of the Moon. Step into the Mystery. Harness the power of the Moon. Unveil the Truth of your Womb, Heart & Mind.

Libra Pink Gaia Moon

The Libra Full Moon is exact on Saturday, March 31st at 5:37am PDT | 8:37am EDT.


At this time of Ostara / Easter / Esotre / Equinox window / this is a Full Moon of Resurrection. As above, so below. The energies of the full moon connect to Christ Consciousness (both feminine and masculine) with Mary Magdalene and Yeshua being deeply honoured. What truth, power and wisdom have you left behind or hidden away that is now ready to come into the light? What is resurrecting within you that will create balance in your life?

This Moon is known as the Pink Moon, which was named by Native American Tribes after the pink wildflowers which bloom in early spring, representing new beginnings. It is also called Gaia's Moon from the Farmer's Almanac, referring to all of Nature coming to life after winter. This is a time of celebrating all that has been released from last season and all that is now coming into bloom.

Full moons amplify our emotions and thus in this Full Moon, the emotions related to our partnerships and relationships is heightened. Remember to practice Self-love, have compassion for other, honour your boundaries and breathe deep.

Feel into the connection you have with yourself, with your heart, your dreams, partnerships, with your global family and with the Earth. What are you grateful for in these relationships? What lessons and insights do you bring with you from last season into this next cycle? What wishes to be amplified and what needs still needs to be composted, shifted, transformed?  How can you bring beauty to all situations and relationships? How can you accept and integrate both the light and the dark?

RITUAL SUGGESTIONS

What is resurrecting within me that will create balance in my life?What relationship dynamics am I holding on to that may feel safe, but is truly not serving? What do I consciously choose to release and create with love? What am I changing? What am I celebrating? What is the deep unwavering truth of who I am? What do I truly desire? What is shaking loose within me?  What does my soul/heart need right now? 
  • Pink Everything: Create an altar space with pink flowers and crystals. Wear pink clothes & jewels. Eat pink fruits & veggies.

Virgo Seed Full Moon

static1.squarespace-5.jpg

We are just entering into the transition phase on the Wheel of the Year from one season towards another. If you are in the northern hemisphere, what do you take with you from winter's wisdom into spring? What do you leave behind? If you are in the southern hemisphere, what do you take with you from summer's joy into autumn? What do you leave behind? 

The Seed Full Moon in Virgo assists in releasing what no serves you and can align you with the High Priestess/Medicine Woman within, as Virgo is the Divine Feminine and the 'Virgin'. In this Full Moon, we are called again to illuminate Self Sovereignty. 

The word 'virgin' originally meant "whole unto oneself". What does it mean to be sovereign unto oneself? What does it feel like to be in our full power? At this full moon, we are asked to explore with a mystical lens (Pisces Sun) all the ways in which we give our power away and how we can reclaim it.  The moon reflects to us the importance of activating our inner discernment, wisdom and intuition to ground our visions and dreams to earth. This is to embody our Wise Woman/Sage/Priestess.

The portal is open for us to reclaim our power by taking responsibility for our actions, thoughts, and spoken words. At this time, we are summoned to the mindset/paradigm of choosing, creating and being accountable.

Step forth, dear one, to ask for what you need, express your heart with authenticity and celebrate the power of your emotions, wisdom, value and intuition. Now is the time to create and design your human experience from a grounded place of focused intention, service and beauty woven with mystery, the non-linear and the magical. There is great insight and healing when we pay attention to both our dreams and the signs right in front of us! 

This is our Moon Medicine. 

 

SEED MOON ATTRIBUTES 

Tarot: The Fool
Herbs: Broom, Yellow dock, Irish moss
Colors: Pale/Light Green, Red-violet
Stones: Aquamarine, Bloodstone, Fluorite
Animals: Cougar, Hedgehog, Boar
Goddesses: Astarte, Ostara, Minerva, Luna, Artemis
Medicine: Burst of new energy, Growing, Exploring, Learning, Inner child work, New beginnings, Balance of light and dark, Ostara, Vernal Equinox

 

MOON RITUAL SUGGESTIONS

  • Embrace The Heart: This can be a very intense part of the lunar cycle. Be patient with all the emotions you are feeling at this time. Breathe into them. Give them a safe resting place and a healthy funnel of expression. Be gentle with yourself.
  • Seva: Practice selfless service by doing something for someone else (maybe even a stranger) that would brighten their day.
  • Express Yourself: Whether through voice or movement, sing, speak and move from a place of your authentic heart to engage with the current expression of your own body & soul.
  • Gratitude: Now is a beautiful time to reach out and share with others what you are most grateful for about them. Gratitude can also be expressed to oneself and to the Great Mystery with reverence for all our blessings at this time.
  • Intentional Design: Take the reins of your schedule and create some order. Design or arrange your home space to represent your essence.
  • Moon Prayers: With the full moon light, write down or speak your prayers for yourself, loved ones and the planet. The full radiant moon amplifies your word.
  • Moon Priestess: Make time for quiet and stillness as the moon rises. Meditate in the full moon light and open yourself receive intuitive guidance and support.
  • Reclaim Self Sovereignty:  In your journal, write down out all the ways that you are currently blaming outside circumstances or people for your own discomfort or unhappiness. Take personal accountability by writing down all the choices, attitudes and actions (including non-action) that are keeping you from living your full potential. Write down all that you are ready to release and all that you are calling forth for your present life to move forward aligned to your heart desires and to get your own needs met. Commit to two action steps to make this real for yourself. Now then, get to it. Welcome to Self Sovereignty.
  • Speak In First Person: Practice speaking from your own personal experience, beginning with 'I', instead of saying 'you'. Example: Instead of saying, "When you went into the ocean, you could hear the whales," you would say, "When I went into the ocean, I could hear the whales." This draws energy back into yourself, creates more power in your speech and opens clarity in your body intelligence.
  • Organize & Release To Beautify: Let go of physical objects that are not supporting your joy. Declutter. Clean. Organize your home space (in and out). This moving of energy supports clearing and cleansing on all levels and welcomes the full moon Light to activate you and your loved ones.
  • Remember: Put out your gem stones and jewels in a window or in water for cleansing, renewal and activation.
  • Commune: Gather is an intentional way with loved ones and do any of the above together and create your own. Now is a time to be with the energy of the collective.

High Priestess Lioness Full Moon Eclipse

 
 

Art by Sister Isabel Mariposa Galactica 

This Leo Full Moon blesses us with her fiery energy on Jan. 31st at 5:27am PST | 8:27am EST. A few minutes later at 5:31am PST | 8:31am EST the Lunar Eclipse is exact. 

With this being a lunar eclipse, we are in a powerful transitional gateway of shift to release that which no longer uplifts you and illuminate your heartfelt and passionate self to roar as the wise leader of your own life (Leo). Now is the time to ignite your heart's desires and offer your gifts to serve in the world with a sense of devotion, inspiration and responsibility (Tarot of the High Priestess).

This is a pivotal window for us as a collective where our feelings, emotions, and intuition come to light to catalyze renewal and regeneration at the level of the heart and soul. It is a time of purification to breakthrough and resurrect your self-love, truth and power. And it is a time to liberate and celebrate the wild soul that you are! 

 

SAGE MOON ATTRIBUTES:

  • Tarot: High Priestess
  • Herbs: Hyssop, Balm of Gilead, Myrrh, Sage
  • Colours: Light blue, Violet
  • Stones: Amethyst, Jasper
  • Animals: Otter, Eagle, Unicorn
  • Goddesses: Brigid, Quan Yin, Diana
  • Medicine: rising energy, purification, new growth, honoring and forgiving yourself, self-love, accepting responsibility, future planning and design

 

Leo Full Moon Eclipse Ritual

This potent ritual is offered in love to your Bright Soul! The intention of this ritual is to empower you in releasing anything that may be preventing you from living in the fullest expression of your Wild Sacred Feminine Essence and rise in the wisdom, beauty, and truth that you are. Blessings to you!

  • Build a fire and bask in the radiant flames. Let the heat penetrate your body. Let the colours into your eyes, empty yourself of thoughts and allow for the flames to guide you deep within. If you can't build a fire, then light some candles and bask in the full moon's light if possible.
  • Write down all the things in your life that you were told you couldn't do, or weren't allowed to do and all the beliefs that arose from that. Take your time with this...
  • Then Reflect on how this makes you feel, speak your feelings, write them down and allow your body to express these feelings.
  • Now investigate how this has affected your life and may still be affecting you. Again, take your time.
  • Then offer to the fire all the parts the beliefs that are not true, that you may have been living with. Honour them for their time with you and now they are no longer needed. Sacred. Deep. Release.
  • Dance Dance Dance! If with a fire, let the heat of the fire soften your body and move in ways that make you feel free and empowered. Dance your truth. Dance your heart and soul. 
  • Speak aloud what you are capable of, and the truth of who you are!  Speak your wisdom and what your passions are. You can start each sentence with I Am.... and claim your truth. Run wild with this! When you feel complete (and maybe after many tears...) Repeat, "And so it is!" as many times as you like. This will anchor in and affirm your sacred truths.
  • Finally, write down these truths, so that you can refer back to it when you need reminded of your power. 
  • Close with gratitude and long deep breathing. Or, continue in what ever way feels most resonant for you.
  • Remember: Put out your gem stones and jewels in a window or in water for cleansing, renewal and activation. Preferable in salted water (sensitive stones and jewels leave out the salt part).

  • Commune: Gather is an intentional way with loved ones and do the above ritual together if possible for extra potency and support. Now is a such a powerful time to be with the energy of the collective.

Full Moon rituals can be done the day before, of and after the actual full moon. This is the 3 day potency period. Blessings to you in this powerful and wild and powerful time.

Wolf Cancer Full Moon

 
IMG_0447.PNG

Super Full Moon 2018

Blessings to you! We begin the year off with some potent power!

The Full Moon is exact in Cancer on January 1st at 6:24pm PST | 9:24pm EST.

The name 'Wolf Moon' comes from Indigenous Tribes of North America, who gave names to each of the moons, in relation to their qualities connected to nature and the seasons. This particular moon was when the wolves would appear in the middle of winter, howling with hunger in villages.

 

Wolf Medicine, representing ‘Teacher’, great wisdom, wildness and inner freedom is beckoning our attention. Maybe you are already feeling it in your bones and are ready to dance and howl! This Wolf Moon reminds us of the importance to express our heart's truth and our wildness, to live feeling free. 

 

Connected with Cancer, this moon mirrors the importance of 'Home'. The home that is our own body temple, our physical dwelling place and being at home on this planet. Cancer moon reflects to us, the importance of honouring the waters of our physical and emotional bodies and amplifies our deepest soul feelings. 


It can illuminate the shadows that need clearing / healing / transforming and also, there is much Grace and assistance present for shining into our fullest potential and making way for quantum leaps of awakening within as we cross into 2018.


Whether you are howling or softly humming, may you honour all parts of yourself now to be in the supportive embrace and amplified energy of this Super Moon. 

 

WOLF MOON ATTRIBUTES

  • Tarot: The Star
  • Herbs: Holly thistle, Nuts, and cones
  • Colors: White, Lavender,  Blue-violet/indigo, Black
  • Stones: Garnet, Onyx, Jet, Chrysoprase, Rose quartz
  • Animals: Bear, Fox, Coyote, Wolf
  • Goddesses: Freya, Brigid, Persephone, Inanna, Saraswati, Hera
  • Medicine: Awakening, Envisioning, Beginning/conceiving, Rest, Protection
  • Holy Day: Imbolc

 

2018 NEW YEAR FULL MOON RITUAL

Empty Presence: Be quiet & still for 10 mins. Listen. Feel your heartbeat. Breath deep. Be present with yourself. 

Honouring 2017: What do you celebrate and honour about yourself from the past year? Whether this related to your personal/business/love live. And. What were your greatest lessons and how can it serve you now? 

Releasing 2017: What are you laying to rest from 2017? What is ready to be burned or buried? If needed, let yourself release the emotions of 2017 with all the feels. Whether this is a cry, scream or sigh. For reals. Emotional Cancer supports us to release held emotions in the body. This is a healthy way to cleanse the emotional body and opens us up to the next level of deep wisdom to move through us.

Creating 2018 with Magick: Create an altar representing all you are calling forth for 2018 and/or place a 'Wishing Bowl' with your written or creatively drawn intentions under the moonlight to be amplified. Key: Focus on how you wish to feel along with any specific things you desire to come to fruition. Place an apple (or any other fruit) beside it and eat it the next day to assimilate the Magick into your Being.

Remember: Put out your gem stones and jewels in a window or in water for cleansing, renewal and activation.

Commune: Gather is an intentional way with loved ones and do any of the above together and create your own. Now is a time to be with the energy of the collective.

Full Moon rituals can be done the day before, of and after the actual full moon. This is the 3 day potency period. Blessings to you in this wondrous and magical time.

Wild Moon Love, Achintya
