Taurus Full Moon

This Taurus Full Moon is exact on Oct 24 9:45 am PDT. Taurus Full Moon simultaneously illuminates the innermost chambers of our body as a temple to experience cosmic bliss and is a time of expressing gratitude to Mother Earth and all the blessings of the past year. This time is an invitation be take the grounded action needed for transformation and healing in your personal life and the collective consciousness (particularly relating to ancestral bloodlines in the realms of love, connection pleasure & sensuality).

Taurus Moon (sensuality) + Scorpio Sun (sexuality) = one of the most potent sign combinations in the zodiac! This is an alchemical union of primordial and mystical energy that can set your soul on fire into ecstatic freedom!


Also called the Full Hunter's Moon which is derived from the approach of winter signaled the possibility of going hungry in pre-Industrial times. This moon was generally associated with great honour, serving as an important feast day in both northern Europe and among many Native American tribes.

Traditionally, Native American hunters used the full moon of October to stalk deer to prepare for the coming winter. Because the fields were traditionally harvested in late September or early October, hunters could also easily see deer and foxes (and other animals) that came out in the full moon to the fields of fallen grains.

This Taurus moon (ruled by Venus) activates our earthy, sensual nature. It is time to delight in and take exquisite care of our bodies and the body of Mother Earth. There is a powerful portal open for prayer, forgiveness, celebration, self-love, sensuality, earthy eroticism and grounded bliss.


With the sun in scorpio, this full moon shines on our deepest feelings and sacred desires related to pleasure, connection, and freedom. It can bring up where you limit these essential parts of your life so you can release them and make new choices for your life that support your Sovereignty and Empowerment. You may feel an urge to sing and dance in both release and rejoice. To make love or to sob. Whatever is your truth, express your feelings with your body. When you allow this to flow through you, you activate healing and transformation within and all around you and our greater collective.

Utilize the power of this moon for your deep growth.
You are are guided and graced!

Full Moon Ritual Suggestions

  • Make Space: Initiate Release and create beauty at the same time by going through your cupboards, closet, garage etc... and let go of the excess. Spaciousness feels so good and you open yourself up to more internal power and creative life-force.

  • Be Still: With so much frequency shift happening now, simply closing your eyes to pay attention to your breath to pause for 5 minutes will do wonders for your nervous system (especially if you can do this 3 times a day, and longer than 5 if possible. Do what you can). Make sure to get a long and full sleep.

  • Burn It Up. Affirm Your Truth: Write a list of the mental baggage that is happening inside that mind of yours. Beliefs, stories, habits. All that you are done with! Free it up. Give it voice. Let it out! Let it go and burn it (safely) with a candle or campfire or fireplace. Then proceed to ritual below.

  • Gem Stone Reminder: 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.

Aries Harvest Full Moon

 
IMG_7793.JPG.jpeg
 

The Aries Harvest Full Moon is exact on September 24th at 7:52 pm PDT.

We are living at a time on Earth where there is an acceleration of simultaneous Beauty, Grace, Upheaval and Conflict in both our inner and outer worlds. And. All this is here to serve the Great Design of why you/we are here, Now. For you to come into the full embodiment of Truth, Wisdom, Power and Love. To unite your soul and body.

With this Harvest Moon in Aries, the opportunity is here to deepen into your Greatest Gratitude and light up your Warrioress Within. This is a Moon to both reflect and to amplify. To commune and celebrate. To share honour and reverence. To spark inspiration or (r)evolutionize your life. You may be called to sing, dance or be still. You may be ready to start something new or give death to something in your life. It may also be the time for you to release anger, rage, frustration or fear in healthy ways, to avoid continued internal tension and external aggression. Use the power of Fire wisely and it will support you fiercely.

The Aries Moon Medicine is also igniting you to take external action as the (R)Evolutionary and Warrioress by contributing your voice, energy, money (any form of action) to participate in the change you wish to see and Be in the world.
Sister, you are a daughter of the Goddess. Your presence with both your shadow and light stimulates needed Awakening, Remembrance and Reclamation for us all!

What do you wish to ignite or re-ignite in your life? What gifts are you reclaiming? What is ready to be released? What is being catalyzed within you?How are you called to Revolutionize?

Whatever inspires you, move in that direction.

Blessed Be.

Ritual Suggestions

  • Gratitude Harvest Altar & Release: Gather fruits and vegetables. Flowers and grains. Create an altar of abundance, representing all you are in gratitude of. List all the things you are grateful for in your life from this year so far and place this in the moonlight (outside or window) to attract more experiences to be grateful for. Write down all the things you are ready to release, change or shift and either bury them, burn them or offer them to a body of water.

  • Dream Speak: Pay close attention to your dreams tonight and through the next few nights. Record them in a journal and speak them out loud. Only by writing them down or speaking them will the sometimes subtle (or not so subtle) meaning and message be revealed to you.

  • Cleanse: Whether you are moving from Winter to Spring in the Southern Hemisphere or from Summer to Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere, the moon cycle of Equinox can be the best time of year for a cleanse. When we cleanse the body, we also cleanse out the mind and release baggage and beliefs that are of dis-ease. If you choose to cleanse this season, be wise about what one choose. Do your homework. Investigate & get support. Grab a beloved or join a group cleanse.

  • Make Space: Time to go through your cupboards, closet, garage etc... and let go of the excess. Spaciousness feels so good and you open yourself up to more internal power and creative life-force.

  • Be Still: With so much frequency shift happening now, simply closing your eyes to pay attention to your breath to pause for 5 minutes will do wonders for your nervous system (especially if you can do this 3 times a day, and longer than 5 if possible. Do what you can). Make sure to get a long and full sleep.

  • Tea Medicine: Drinking Tulsi & Gotu Kola herbal tea will soothe your nerves and calm your spirit. This also allows you to open up to magical and bountiful blessings being offered.

  • Earthing Creativity: Illuminate your dreams and get into your body! Create a vision board or a painting or dance or write in your journal all that you are bringing with you into the next season ahead. Place this out into the moonlight/speak it/sing out loud.

  • Moon Bathe: Get into the magic of the moonlight and absorb her luminous, activating, soul-stirring and healing balm. Look to the moon and speak the visions and dreams that you see for yourself and for the planet.

  • 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 potent time.

With Lunar Love, Achintya

Autumn Equinox and Mabon Rituals

 
 Gratitude Dance with Rainbow & Apple Tree Devas in Avalon.

Gratitude Dance with Rainbow & Apple Tree Devas in Avalon.

 

This Autumn Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere is exact at 6:54pm PDT on September 22nd and Spring Equinox in the Southern Hemisphere is exact on September 23 at 11:54am in Australia.


At this special time, day and night are of equal length as Mother Earth takes a sacred pause in Her rotation around the Sun. On The Wheel of the Year, this Holy Day in the Northern Hemisphere is celebrated as Mabon (pronounced in many different ways May-bun, May-boon, May-bawn). Mabon is considered a time of the Great Mysteries. It is a time to honour the Sun Gods and Goddesses, the Harvest, and the Spirit World. 


This is a time of balance, to slow down and reflect, enjoy the bounty of our harvests (whether this be from your gardens, your friendships and family, your work or your personal achievements) and also to prepare for the next season by welcoming the gifts of the darkness to release, let go, give away, share and shed (whether physically, emotionally, mentally or all the above).

This is a potent moment to honour the light and the shadow within your Womb, Heart & Mind. To honour the human part of you and the spirit part of you… the masculine and the feminine. For, to live fully Whole and integrated, we must embody both polarities. This is the power and alchemy of which all creation is based.

Allow yourself to be joy-filled, sorrowful, happy, frustrated and sad all at once. All of these emotions have deep wisdom, insight and lessons for you at this time when you inquire with curiosity and acceptance. Give reverence to yourself for how far and deep you have journeyed. Honour your pain, shadow, and challenges. Honour your pleasure, light and triumphs. And those of others. For every step of your path has led you to this moment now.


We offer thanks and honour to the Goddess as she moves from Mother to Crone, and to the Green Man of giving gratitude for the fortitude of the Sun, as we now reap the gifts and abundance, prosperity and fruitful ways of being.


May we welcome the power of this Holy Day in our personal lives and as the needed change for world. May we offer to one another the bounty of love in our hearts, and offer the gifts of respect, kindness, honour and peace to all those we come across. May we do what we can to contribute our energy in gratitude to the Earth, to the Spirit World and to all of humanity.

Lughnasadh Aquarius Full Moon Eclipse

FullSizeRender-3.jpeg

The Full Blood Moon is exact in Aquarius at 1:20 pm PDT on July 27th. And 1 minute later comes the Total Lunar Eclipse at 1:21 pm PDT. This is the longest Lunar Eclipse of the century!

It is also Lunar Lughnasadh, (pronounced Loog-NAS-ah), also known as Lammas. This High Holy Day on the Wheel of the Year, half way between Summer Solstice and Autumnal Equinox, is a sacred Harvest Festival of Gratitude and Abundance (in the Gregorian calendar, it is honoured on August 2nd). The energy and celebration is alive through the weeks after the peak of this eclipse. 

As the intensity of the Eclipse is present, it is both seen in the electromagnetic field of the earth, and felt in the electromagnetic field of our own bodies. This is simultaneously a time of fruition, integration, reflection and release. Both celebration and completion energy are dancing within and all around us. We are personally, and therefore collectively clearing, out the old and making way to receive and Embody more light (aka love, awareness, consciousness) to enter. DNA upgrading is happening!

At this time of fruition, integration and reflection, take time to honour the seeds you've planted and celebrate this time of the first Harvest and your creative powers. 

This Full Moon is also known as the Blessing Moon or King's Moon.

 

Blessing Moon Attributes

  • Tarot: The Emperor
  • Herbs: honeysuckle, lemon balm, jasmine
  • Colors: green, ocean blues, coral
  • Stones: Ocean Jasper, Lepidolite, Aquarmarine
  • Animals: crab, turtle, dolphin, whale
  • Goddesses: Juno, Hera, Sulis, Nephthys
  • Medicine: Peak of Summer; relaxed energy; preparing;  dream-work; Lughnasadh

 

Lunar Lughnasadh Eclipse Ritual

Please set aside 30 minutes for this interactive Ritual Meditation. Is best done on the Earth, in Nature if possible, in your bare feet on the day of the eclipse. However, it can also be done the day before or after.

After the Ritual, you are welcome to join us in our Goddess Rising Sisterhood Facebook Group to share all that you are releasing, amplifying, celebrating and declaring.

 

More Eclipse Ritual Suggestions

  • Water Bearer Gratitude:  List all the things you are grateful for in your life from this year in how you serve and share your gifts (truly acknowledge yourself), place this in the moonlight (outside or window) to attract more experiences to be grateful for. Then, write down all the things you are ready to release and either burn them or offer them to a body of water.
  • Empress Dance: Put on music you love and offer your heart through dance in devotion to how you wish to serve and express your gifts in the world.
  • Dream Speak: Pay close attention to your dreams and visions in the full moon. Record them in a journal and speak them out loud. Only by writing them down or speaking them will the sometimes subtle (or not so subtle) meaning and message be revealed to you.
  • Water Bearer Moon Bathe: Get into the magic of the moonlight and absorb her luminous, activating, soul stirring and healing balm. Look to the moon and speak the visions that you see for yourself and for the planet.
  • Gem Stone Activation Meditation: Place any of the above gemstones (after they have been charged in the moonlight) or ones you are currently working with, on your brow point/third eye either during the full moon or in the sun light to activate your visionary center of intuition and receive the messages that you are ready for. Breathe fully and deeply as you lie down and relax. 
  • Journal Questions: What is an Empress? How does she serve? How can I embody the Archetype of Empress in my own life? What is a Water Bearer? How am I that? What am I ready to release so that I can serve more fully on my dharmic path? What gifts am I ready to shine?
  • 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 'Visionary Water Bearer' 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.
