Lunar Lughnasadh Aquarius Full Moon

FullSizeRender-3.jpeg
 

The Full Moon is / was exact in Aquarius at 5:29 am PDT on August 15th.

This Full Moon is Lunar Lughasadh (pronounced Loog-NAS-ah) in the northern hemisphere. This High Holy Day on the Wheel of the Year, honoured in our Moon Priestess Lineage, is halfway between Summer Solstice and Autumnal Equinox and is a sacred Harvest Festival of Gratitude and Abundance (in the Gregorian calendar, it is honoured on August 2nd and Solar Lughnasadh was last week on Aug 7th when the Sun was 15 degrees Leo). It is at this time that the codes of the Great Mother-Father, Lioness, King-Queen, Activist and Water Bearer are wishing to reveal themselves through you.

With the Sun in Leo (attributed to the “me”) and the Moon in Aquarius (attributed to the “we”), this is a powerful time to align your personal will with Divine Will. To offer your gifts, services and talents to the legacy that we are all here to create together. May we celebrate the this auspicious moment in the glory the full moon’s light!


Today is also Mother Mary's Ascension Day. We honour and celebrate her now as a sacred Rosa Mystica Guide in our Rose Priestess Lineage. Her living legacy as Essene Rose Priestess, Queen of Angels, Keeper of Grail Mysteries & Divine Mother extends into the far reaches of countless souls on Earth with her benevolence, grace, dedication, courage and wisdom. We greatly revere her on this day in honour of the completion of her Earthwalk and Soul's Mission and ascension to the Heaven's.

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.

Lunar Lughnasadh 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 a Queen? How does she serve? How can I embody the Archetype of Empress or Queen in my own life? What is a Water Bearer? How am I that? What am I ready to release so that I can serve, express and live more fully? What gifts am I ready to shine?

  • Remember: 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.


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


Love, Achintya

Eclipse Full Moon in Capricorn

 
834f2f5e-abc8-4712-a7f8-ab0ba932f0c0.jpg
 

This Capricorn Partial Lunar Eclipse is at 11:55 am PDT on July 16th and the Full Blessing Moon is exact later at 2:38 pm PDT.

The Moon will be covered by about 65% of the Earth's umbral shadow at maximum eclipse. This is the last eclipse of 2019 and is visible from Africa, Australia, South America, most of Asia Europe, and the very southern and eastern parts of North America.

With the eclipsing Moon in Capricorn, the structures, constructs, patterns and traditions of your life that have been built on a foundation of distortion, fear or falsity are crumbling. This may feel like the carpet is being pulled out from underneath you. This may feel intense. And, it is. This great eclipse of the moon, caused by the Earth’s shadow, is here to catalyze an illumination and then release, of all the ways you have governed your life from a place of fear to initiate a new foundation rooted in trust, wisdom and love.

Let the full moon’s luminosity penetrate into your being to deconstruct what achievement, leadership, power and mastery have meant to you, so you redefine this for yourself. It is time to shed the chains of comparison, status, competition, power-over / powerlessness by illuminating the emotions hiding in the dark. These shadows are ready to be acknowledged, simply by feeling them. During this Moon, allow any sadness, grief, anger, fear and rage to have their holy moment. Any distorted beliefs that have been leading your life are being revealed and dissolved. Honour and thank them for how they have served you and with power of your sovereign choice, let them go.

On the other side of this shadow is liberation! Through this deep excavation of your being, you are creating space for a potent rebirth of love and true mastery to take up residence in your life, for the benefit All. You will begin, and we will begin, to rebuild structures, maps, traditions and patterns in our lives based in safety, honour, respect and love.

This eclipse will guide you into the direction of living your dreams and grounding your soul gifts! Bathe yourself in the light of truth and unconditional love. Feel deeply. Follow your body’s innate intuition. You are supported and blessed.

And so it is.

Added Insight…

As this is the Blessing Moon, take time to amplify your gratitude and give thanks for all the blessings and abundance already present. And with the eclipse, it is also important to acknowledge your emotional and earthly needs/desires have not been met, and welcome insight to initiate new ways and structures of getting these met with creativity, support, and grace.

Also, in Vedic and Hindu Tradition, it is Guru Purnima! The special Full Moon is a time of honouring those that have been, and are, our teachers. This Full Moon is dedicated to those who have illuminated us in some way, who have taught us and guided us, and who have shown us more of who we truly are and why we are here. 

 

Blessing Moon Attributes

  • Tarot: The Emperor

  • Herbs: Honeysuckle, Lemon Balm, Jasmine

  • Colors: Green, Ocean Blues, Coral

  • Stones: Ocean Jasper, Lepidolite, Aquamarine

  • Animals: Crab, Turtle, Dolphin, Whale

  • Goddesses: Juno, Hera, Sulis, Nephthys

  • Medicine: Peak of Summer; Relaxed energy; Preparation; Dream-work

 

Ritual Suggestions

  • Eclipsing Earth Connection: Stand or walk on the earth with bare feet. Imagine roots growing down from your feet and/or your womb space to the womb of Mother Gaia. Feel this as an anchoring pillar of light connecting you to the Earth and welcome in the magick of the Moon descending down from above moving through you, as you continue to send the energy deep into the earth to ground you, release stagnant or pent up emotional energy and have you feeling supported and nourished for rebirth.

  • Guru Purnima Gratitude Blessing: Throughout the day and night, as inspired, say out loud what you are grateful for about the people in your life you consider are your teachers, those you have learned from, who have inspired you and supported your empowerment. If it's a person, reach out and tell them in a message, phone call or prayer. If they are animals, angels or ascended masters or guides in the unseen realms, speak or sing your gratitude out loud or in writing.

  • Take Stock & Take Action: In your journal, write down 1-3 emotional needs and desires that are not being met. Then list why this is so. Make sure you turn the answer inward and don't point the finger to the outside or at someone else. This is powerful. Take your time with this one. There may be massive insight and healing in this alone. Then for each need/desire, write down one way you can activate these to come to fruition. Make a commitment to apply at least one of these in the next 72 hours. And the others within this lunar cycle.

  • Creative Activation: Take a piece of paper and list 5-10 desires you have. Place this sacred paper under the moonlight (either outside or by a window). Create an altar with this by adding symbols (of things you already have/cuttings from a magazine, etc) that represent these desires. Get creative. Then burn sage or incense around you to purify yourself and symbolically remove any ways of being that prevent you from experiencing these desires (insight from first ritual may come into play here). Sing or chant any mantras or songs that you feel connected to, to bring these soul desires to life!

  • Remember: Put out your gemstones 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.

 

Full Moon rituals can be done the day before, of, and day 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

SOLSTICE BLESSINGS

Arti

Artist Unknown, please email us if you know. Thank you.

Blessed Solstice! The Sun moves into Cancer at 8:54am PDT on June 21 to open this powerful Solar Gate and High Holy Sabbat.

Solstice comes from the Latin term solstitium, “meaning sun stands still”, as it appears to do just that for a few days. In the northern hemisphere, we celebrate Summer Solstice with the longest hours of daylight and the sun at its highest point, while those of us in the southern hemisphere celebrate Winter Solstice with the longest hours of darkness and the sun at its lowest point. United, we hold the both the light and the dark and the full spectrum in between. 

The Solstice portal is open from June 21 - 24 and is a Holy time of purification, exaltation and celebration.

Honour the potent Solstice energy with joy as we embrace the Wild Sacred Light of the Sun itself, the Light within all Beings and the Love that shines within us, that is who we truly are. This is also a time for you to celebrate 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 empowering qualities.

During this Solstice portal, welcome the Sun’s rays to penetrate your every cell, for indeed you are being asked to hold the Mantle of Truth, Wisdom and Love as a multi-dimensional being. One is who is made of Star Dust and Sun Light.

At this time of Illumination, may you remember that your inner fires are here to support you in moving through any fears that keep you from your truth. You are being ushered into the next activation of your incarnation as both spirit and matter, which is the power and Blessing of Light itself. Orientate yourself towards the Sun to make clear and honest choices about your greatest dreams, to shed limited beliefs and unworthiness, and bask in the magnificence of these powerful Light Codes.

Blessed Be for all that is being illuminated and amplified at this Holy time of embodied Ascension!

 

Solstice Ritual Suggestions

  • Rise to Greet the Sun: Greet the Sun for Sunrise on the longest day of the year as an act of exalted devotion to the Full Light of your Awareness. If in the southern hemisphere, greet the Sunset to honour the shortest day or Light and Rebirth of another cycle.

  • Gratitude Speak: Speak aloud or write in your journal 21 things you are grateful for. If writing, place in the sunlight for amplification. This practice brings to light more experiences for you to be great-full for.

  • Honey Medicine: Eat a spoonful of honey in the sunlight, taste the sweetness of all of your life's blessings and recent accomplishments while feeling into trust, that all be provided for, for your life's dreams.

  • Elemental Fire Divination: Sunbathe, create a bonfire or light candles in you home to activate the wild and sacred medicine of Fire / the Sun and let the warmth of the rays and flames seep into your cells. Let the mind go and gaze into light to receive guidance and messaged available only at this time.

  • 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.

Blessed Be! Love, Achintya

Scorpio Full Flower Moon

Art by Trece with edits by Achintya

 


This Full Moon in Scorpio takes place at 2:11 pm PDT on May 18th.

We are waxing towards the Full Moon in Scorpio that will be the climax and completion of our Beltane Portal! Can you feel the shifting of energies within? An amplification of your sixth sense, womb & heart pulsing and feeling between the worlds? A potent activation on the spiral of life is happening and continues to build with the light of the moon.


With the Taurus Sun and Scorpio Moon, this is a time of celebrating your fertile dreams, honouring your erotic nature, and releasing deep emotions. Hidden treasures and tribulations connected to sensuality and sexuality are illuminated. Through shadow and light, this can reveal your greatest womb power and womb wounds for revelation, healing and empowerment.

Gratitude, Self-Love and Pleasure Rituals to nourish your body are especially important right now that invite deeper layers of excavation, emotion, exploration & embodiment of your erotic innocence and sexual expression. Be sure to delight in passionate communion (with self or other) and give reverence for the gift of your sacred sensuality. It is the power of Creation itself!

This Moon is also known as the Wesak Moon in Buddhist Tradition. It was the Full moon in May that the Buddha was born, later experienced enlightenment and then finally passed on from the body (YES, all on the Full Moon of May). It is said that it is during this time that we have the blessing and opportunity of Great Awakening. And so it is.

 

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.

  • Lunar Beltane Fire 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.

  • Beltane Moon Elixir: Combine mint/rose/tulsi/hibiscus/cinnamon tea with honey and you've got a simple and delicious 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. Please see your invitation below!

 

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. Attributes adopted by DJ Conway

Libra Phoenix Resurrection Pink Moon

The Libra Full Moon is exact on Friday, April 19th at 4:12 am PDT | 7:12 am EDT.

This is a Full Moon of Resurrection. As above, so below. At this time of Good Friday / Passover, the energies present connect to Christ Consciousness (both feminine and masculine) with Mary Magdalene and Yeshua being deeply honoured and felt.

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?

Events of this Holy Week signify potent change and are in a powerful initiation.

This global activation of Notre Dame burning in Paris (built for Mary Magdalene/Temple of Isis) is catalyzing an acceleration of Humanity's Awakening. At deep layers of consciousness, there is a destruction of "manipulating Christ energy" to dominate and control. Distortions and illusions are crumbling and burning. Out of the ashes, from deep within the Earth's crystalline core, rises the Magdalene Phoenix for Rebirth and Renewal of right relationship (Libra Moon) of the masculine and feminine.

The powerful energy present now and through this full moon Easter weekend holds a zero point energy we can utilize both individually and together in co-creation with Gaia to Recalibrate, Rebirth and Renew. For Self within and as a Living Prayer for the Whole.


This Libra Full Moon amplifies 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.

As this is the second Full Moon in Libra in a row, there a significant completion happening. The last Libra Full Moon on the Equinox was at 0 degrees. This second Libra Full Moon is at 29 degrees. Feel into the relationships 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 this lunation? What needs 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? 

This Moon is also known as the Pink Moon, which was named by Native American Tribes after the pink wildflowers which bloom in early spring, representing new beginnings. This is a time of celebrating all that has been released from last season and all that is now coming into bloom.

 

PINK MOON ATTRIBUTES

  • Tarot: The Magician

  • Herbs: Basil, Chives, Dragon’s blood, Geranium

  • Colors: Crimson Red, Fushia & Gold

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.
