This Full Moon in Sagittarius takes place at 7:19 am PDT on May 29th. This is the first full moon since Uranus went into Taurus for this next 8 year cycle.

This Sagittarius full moon comes at a time of significant transition for the collective as we feel into our deepest dreams and ideals (the target), by activating our devotional embodiment practices (the arrow), held with the wisdom and truth in our hearts (the bow). 

Making clear and honest choices towards our greatest dreams is highlighted right now. The blue flame of the Sag moon invites us into deeper Presence so that we can explore important paths/options/choices to support our direction from our bodies intuitive guidance, rather than solely from the logical mind.  

This is also a time of celebration for all that is ripe in your life, whether this is related to an attitude of gratitude, completing a job well done or for embodying uplifting qualities, symbolized by the Honey Moon. Therefore, it is important to reward or honour yourself in some way and remain in a state of contentment. Go on and celebrate yourself and this amazing life!

 

Ritual Suggestions

  • Gratitude Speak: Speak aloud to the Full Moon, or write in your journal 11 things you are grateful for. If writing, place in the moonlight overnight. This practice brings to light more experiences for you to be grateful for. 
  • Dream Illumination & Sacred Release Journal: What dreams is your soul illuminating for you at this time? What sacred desires are being called into the light? What visions do you have for yourself? How can you clarify and amplify your dreams? Why are they meaningful and full of purpose? What is between you and your dreams? What is stopping you from living them (focusing on your own patterns, thought forms, behaviors, beliefs)? Burn this paper now for sacred release in a fire or with candles outside in the full moon light. Dance / speak/ move/ sound it out.  After this and you feel more space within you, write down and speak aloud to the moon how you now choose to commit and devote yourself to your dreams. How you can take action, receive support and rest into the divine timing of these dreams.
  • Devotional Heart: How does your heart want to be expressed/nurtured at this time? What embodiment practices inspire you right now? Dance, yoga, walking, chi gong, archery? Activities that bring you out of your mind and into your body are where it's at when done with the intention of celebrating and honouring yourself and your growing dreams. Trying doing them in the moonlight.
  • Elemental Nourishment: Sag Moon is an ideal time for you to get in the Natural World and the Elements. Visit your favorite tree, park, river, ocean or lake etc... Let the wild and sacred medicine of nature seep into your body and your breath. Let the mind go and rest into Earth and practice the art of spaciousness by simply Being. 
  • Remember: Put out your gem stones and jewels in a window or in water for cleansing, renewal and activation. Place an apple and glass of water in the moonlight and have it for a 'Moon Wisdom' breakfast the next morning.
  • Commune: Gather in an intentional way with loved ones and do any of the above together and create your own. Now can be 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 wondrous and magical time.

Lunar Beltane ~ Scorpio Full Moon

FullSizeRender.jpeg

Fire Ritual at our Aphrodite Goddess Yoga Arts Gathering in Mexico this week. Photo by Melissa Robin.
 

This Full Moon in Scorpio takes place at 5:58pm PDT on April 29th.

Welcome to the Fire Festival of Lunar Beltane (northern hemisphere)! This High Holy Day on The Wheel of The Year (half way between Equinox and Solstice) is a time of celebrating your fertile dreams, body, and soul, springing forth into new life. Just as a flower blooms, in this Flowering Moon, you are being invited to honour yourself for all the ways in which you are already expanding and unfolding. Gratitude and Self-Love Rituals to nourish the body and mind are especially powerful right now. As the Moon is in Scorpio, this is also a time where the depths of your soul and psyche may emerge from the darkness into the Light of the Full Moon for you to shed and release, to experience revelations and powerful insight and to renew.

This is a time of celebrating sensual delight, as all rituals of pleasure are those offered from the Goddess. Now is a most auspicious window to consciously listen to how you wish to feel in your body and allow yourself to be guided into what pleasures you. Be sure to honour the power of passionate communion (with self or other) and give reverence for the gift of your sensuality. This is the power of Creation itself!

 

Flower Moon Attributes

  • Tarot: The Lovers
  • Herbs: Elder, Mint, Rose, Mugwort, Thyme
  • Colors: Green, Brown, Pink
  • Stones: Emerald, Malachite, Amber, Carnelian, Moonstone
  • Animals: Cats, Lynx, Leopard, Swan, Dove
  • Goddesses: Maia, Venus, Aphrodite, Artemis, Bast, Astarte
  • Moon Medicine: Creation, Love, Intuition, Divine Connection, Connection with Nature, Sexuality, Sensuality Beltane

 

Ritual Suggestions

  • Make Love to Life: Whether this means literally making love with intentional celebration of your creative forces and pleasure, or metaphorically, this is time to put your hearts desires into motion. Dance. Paint. Sing. Play music. Weave. Craft.
  • Vision Board: Take action to bring all your sacred visions to form with a vision board and place it under the moon light for blessed activation.
  • Fire Moon Ritual: Get into Nature. Take off your shoes. Breathe in the air and remember that your cycles mimic Her's. Give any of your limiting beliefs and fears to the Fire (either by building one, or with candles). With movement and voice, write them down and burn them. This is an act of purification and activation and a releasing of any heavy weight or burdens you may be carrying. Then welcome in and all the feelings inside of you that make you feel WONDERFUL and move in that direction. Literally. 
  • Moon Elixir: Combine mint/rose/tulsi/hibiscus/cinnamon tea with honey and you've got a simple and delicious fiery elixir. Place it in Full Moon light (you can even add a quartz crystal into your cup for added magic), drink in all that you are great-full for and sip in celebration of your feminine lunar essence.
  • Remember: Put out your gem stones and jewels in a window or in water for cleansing, renewal and activation. Place an apple and glass of water in the moonlight and have it for a 'Moon Wisdom' breakfast the next morning.
  • Commune: Gather in an intentional way with loved ones and do any of the above together and create your own. Now can be a powerful time to be with the energy of the collective.

Magick is afoot! Full Moon rituals can be done the day before, of and after the actual full moon. This is the 3 day potency period. Attributes adopted by DJ Conway.

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? 

 

GAIA MOON ATTRIBUTES

  • Tarot: The Magician
  • Herbs: Basil, Chives, Dragon’s blood, Geranium
  • Colors: Crimson Red, Fushia & Gold
  • Stones: Ruby, Garnet, Rose quartz
  • Animals: Bear, Wolf, Hawk
  • Goddesses: Hathor, Ceres, Ishtar, Venus, Bast
  • Medicine: energy into creating and producing; change; self-reliance; tempering emotional flare-ups; receptivity

 

RITUAL SUGGESTIONS

  • Authentic Inquiry Journaling: Bring your pen in hand to paper and let your heart answer these potent questions: What truth, power and wisdom have I left behind or hidden away that is now ready to come into the light? 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.
  • Rose Meditation: Visualize a rose glow around your body and opening rose petals at your womb space. Extend this pink glow to all your loved ones and the world for Beauty and Healing.
  • Make Love: To life, to your garden, to yourself, to your creative arts, to your Beloved, including but not limited to sex, infused with sensitivity, open-heartedness, and passion.
  • Remember: Put out your gemstones and jewels outside under the moonlight or in a window (in water if you can) 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.

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.
