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

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

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

  • 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.

 

Howling in the full moon with you in the Rose Glow of LOVE!

VIRGO PRIESTESS FULL MOON

static1.squarespace-5.jpg

We are in 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? 


This Full Moon in Virgo assists in releasing what no serves you and can align you with the Priestess and 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.

As Virgo is ruled by Mercury, you have a profound invitation and opportunity to reclaim your sovereign power by speaking your Truth, communicating unspokens, listening to the voice of your dreams, following your soul calling and sharing in very real and intimate ways.  This can be scary and may bring up many beliefs and patterns around your self-worth, pleasing others, and prioritizing yourself. And yet, with the Archetype of Priestess illuminated within you, when you reveal deep truths to yourself and speak what is alive, present and necessary to be spoken, you will show up with full integrity and in resonance of your Soul (even if your heart is beating fast and you are scared).

 
It’s a BIG Moon, sister!
 

If you are anything like the thousands of womxn around the world on a path of awakening, you have some things to say.  Maybe to yourself, maybe to another, maybe to the Divine.  And... What you are NOT speaking impacts your life greatly.  In this Full Moon, what needs to be spoken? What dreams need to be honoured? What are you reclaiming? Once you speak your Truth, you free yourself and experience a homecoming as sovereign vessel of Heaven and Earth, Living as Love.
 

This Full Moon is a powerful Threshold moment.  You are standing right at the doorway about to step into something new and/or something that has been a dream that can now become a reality.  Something in your life is asking you to make a commitment that seems edgy or exciting or real or scary.  You have the invitation to walk through this Threshold and expand into your Diamond brilliance by taking responsibility for your actions, thoughts, and Divine mission. At this time, you are being summoned to live as a Priestess.

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. 

 

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. See invitation below.

This is one of the most powerful astrological events of 2019!

These are some potent incoming Queen Codes for this year! 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 for leading with your Lion Heart in 2019. It is a time of purification to breakthrough and resurrect your self-love, truth and power.

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.
