New Moon in Gemini - Honey Cycle Energy Report

Happy New Moon in Gemini! 

New Moon in Gemini | Spirit de la Lune

This New Moon is bringing in the start of a new cycle! 

Before anything new can begin, we must first learn what it is that needs to be cleared. 

This helps give us an idea of what we DO want to bring into our lives. 

This New Moon invites you sit back and listen. Take time in your reactions and responses.

The Moon rules our deepest emotions and feelings. Her last visit through Scorpio may have caused some old wounds to surface. The Gemini Energy is pushing you to become the observer in your life. Take a step back and be aware of your thoughts as they help you navigate your emotions. 

This New Moon has a new beginning in store for you, but you must first sit back, watch, listen and observe yourself to what it is you are needing to let go of, in order to begin anew.

Each month we put together an energy report on the coming lunar cycle. We also draw a card from the Spirit de la Lune deck for each turning to help us navigate the lunar energy.

New Moon in Gemini 

New Moon in Gemini Energy Reading | Spirit de la Lune

This New Moon in Gemini occurs on May 25th.

This cycle ushers in the energy of the Honey Moon, as she turns full later this month. This New Moon in Gemini carries very potent energy for you to be able to heal and clear past wounds and turn over a new leaf for a fresh beginning. 

This last Full Moon in Scorpio may have brought some old wounds to the surface in order to be looked at, cleansed and healed during this New Moon in Gemini.

Productivity is at a high right now, and you may be feeling more busy than ever! Be careful to not turn to stress. Stress is simply a chosen reaction to pressure.You will find a bit of peace and organization as the moon turns to full. Trust in the ebbs and flows

The Super Moon Card was pulled for this turning, which matches the intense energy this cycle may hold. There are some astrologers stating that this is Super New Moon, so it's no surprise that the Super Moon card came out during this reading!

This intense energy shows that anything is possible right now. You may not be able to predict how things will turn out, but you can focus your thoughts on what you want.

Use this Gemini energy to sit back and listen intently to your inner voice. Watch your mind chatter, and see what kinds of things you tell yourself day to day. Are you thoughts directed towards where you want to go? 

 

First Quarter Moon in Virgo

First Quarter Moon in Virgo | Spirit de la Lune

The moon turns to First Quarter on the 1st of June in the house of Virgo, the Healer. The Virgo in you loves to pay attention to the details and fix what might be broken... if you've listened to yourself during the Gemini turning, you may have a good idea as to what it is that needs the healing. 

When the moon is in Virgo, your body may be more intolerant of lower grade foods, harmful substances, drugs or alcohol. Your body wants to begin a healing process. So be careful what you put into your body at this time. 

The Lover Card was pulled for this cycle, a perfect combo with the Virgo card. Both are Earth energies reminding you to be grounded as the Moon turns into the fire energy of the waxing moon. Virgo energy can tend to be perfectionist, fault-finding, and sometimes overly-critical. remember to apply some love this week. Especially if you are finding any faults within yourself.

 

Full Honey Moon in Sagittarius

Full Moon in Sagittarius Honey Moon | Spirit de la Lune

The Full Honey Moon in Sagittarius occurs on June 9th. You might be feeling a breath of fresh air around this moon. Sagittarius is an optimistic and open sign. You may find some answers to your questions around this time just because you've shifted your mood from stress and overwhelm to optimism and clarity. 

This is also the Honey Moon! Productivity will be at it's highest, so now is the time to get things done. The energy is buzzing like bees, so again it's important to not become overly stressed. Reach out to your community and others in your hive who could offer you some help.

The Connect Card was pulled for this cycle, an echoing of the community message from the Honey Moon card. If you are still feeling overwhelmed, reach out to your tribe. Ask for help. The energy is loving, adaptable and centered around community and building. 

 

Last Quarter Moon in Aries

Last Quarter Moon in Aries | Spirit de la Lune

The moon turns to Last Quarter on June 17, in the sign of Aries and Pisces depending on your time zone. The Last Quarter Moon signifies the coming New Moon, and has us beginning to turn inward as well.

Being in the house of Aries, you will likely feel pushed to get everything done. Don't procrastinate or put off your goals! Use this last push of energy before the moon shifts into New. 

Card pulled for this phase is Refine. Take time to double check or refine your work this week. You may not be able to take the big steps Aries is pushing you to take right now..  but there is always refinement o be done. Take small steps and double check your work. This energy supports problem solving, brainstorming and finding out of the box solutions.

Flower Moon Bathing Ritual for Self Love

Happy Full Flower Moon!

We are approaching the peak of the Flower Moon cycle, and we will soon be in the currents of the watery sensuality of the Full Moon in Scorpio on 5/10/17! 

The Flower Moon in Scorpio is the full blooming energy of the Flower Moon cycle and in astrology is considered Lunar Beltane - with the Sun in Taurus (Venus ruled) and the Moon in Scorpio (Mars ruled).. merging the Feminine and Masculine energies together as one.

Carve out some time to relax and create a beautiful bathing ceremony while the moon is full and in bloom. Down below we have some ideas and recipes you can try! Try them all or the ones you are drawn to... follow your intuition!

Remember to prep your Rose water and rose quartz stones in advanced, by sitting them out under the Waxing moon until the Full Moon on 5/10! Do this for at least 1-2 days in advanced!

Items needed:

Full Flower moon in May
  • Bath tub (if you do not have a bathtub use a bucket or bowl for a foot soak!)
  • Organic flowers (or dried flowers)
  • Sea salt or Epsom salt
  • Rose water (place out under the Waxing moon leading up to the Full Moon)
  • Half an avocado
  • 1/4 of a large cucumber
  • Your favorite perfume oil
  • Body oil or lotion
  • Tumbled rose quartz stones (place in rose water, or out  under the waxing moon!)
  • Candles, incense, enchanting music (create a beautiful atmosphere!)
  • Your favorite lingerie or nightie!
  • Chocolate and wine of course!

 

Take some time to gather your items and reflect on the Moon cycle thus far:

What is blooming in your life right now?

What needs more nourishment?

Where are you sending your love and devotion?

Are you receptive to the love and abundance in your life?


Flower Moon Petal Soak:

Flower Moon Bath Salt.jpg
  • 2 cups epsom salt (or 1 cup each of epsom and sea salt)
  • Dried flowers or fresh edible flowers
  • 1/4 cup rosewater
  • 10 - 15 drops of your favorite essential oil or oil perfume!
  • Adding tumbled rose quartz is optional!

While stirring the salt with the flowers, slowly pour in the rose water and blend together evenly. Imagine pouring all your love into this mixture! Don't forget to add your favorite drops of oil and stir well! We love Ylang Ylang!


Soothing Avocado Mask:

  • 1/2 of an Avocado
  • 1/4 of cucumber (make sure to cut some slices for your eyes!)
  • 2 tbs of rose water

Blend all these items up in a blender until smooth. Add more Avocado for a creamier texture. You could also add more Rose Water if it is too thick, mine was a whipped texture. Feel free to peel the cucumber to have a smother finish, but it is not necessary.

 

 

 

 

 

Directions for use: Apply to your clean face, neck, and decolletage for 15-20 mins.  You could add it to your hair as well if you have extra. It will be very cooling at first, and your face will glow afterward! Feel free to adorn your face with cucumber slices, rose quartz, and edible flowers :) 

 

Apply the mask during your Flower Moon ceremony below...


Now that you have all your items prepped, on the day of the Full Moon, carve some time out your schedule to relax and pamper yourself. During anytime of this ceremony, feel free to invite a partner or lover to join you ;)

You can also do this ceremony with your Mother and make it a Spa day for Mother's Day this coming Sunday! Instead of a bath, you can make it a foot soak and have pedicures after!

Make all your recipes, and create an altar around your bath and bathroom, ready your nightie, light your candles and let your music invoke your body and desires to stir within. Do not draw your bath quite yet, as it may be cold by the time you get into it!

Once you are ready, go out under the Full Moon and stand below her and bask in her beauty. Offer her some of your flowers, and imagine her Moonlight shining down into your heart chakra and spreading through the whole ocean of your body. Where is the energy settling in your body? Breathe in and out this lunar energy, this tidal breath. 

Write in your journal about the prompts above and write a list of everything that invokes your sultry desires.

What stirs your soul?

If you are having a hard time figuring this out, ask Luna to help you clarify this during your ceremonial bath. 

Under the moonlight, take your perfume and anoint your Heart chakra, say out loud your intention to the Moon and leave Her a few drops of the oil as well.

When you are ready, apply your mask (I used a makeup brush for a smoother application) and if you can, lay out under the moonlight while your mask is soaking into your skin! If that doesn't work for you, you can draw your bath now and lay in your bath with the mask on.

The Moon lives in the lining of your skin.

When you are ready, wash your face off and draw your bath. Add any drops of oil to your bath and pour in your bath salts. Bring in your wine and chocolate, and soak in these soothing waters and allow every muscle to relax. Drift away in your fantasies and allow any messages from Luna to come through. Take your time.

After your luxurious bath, massage your body with your favorite lotion or oil, and get into your sexy nightie. Go back outside and thank Lady Luna for her love and clarity. Leave out some wine for the Faeries and the land. And for the rest of your night, stay receptive to any messages, yearnings, or desires that come from deep within. Go back to your list of things that invoke your desires and see how you can incorporate those into your daily life.

We hope you enjoyed this ceremony and find it deepens you into the enchanting magick of the Flower Moon and your sultry body.

2017 Flower Moon Cycle Energy Reading

Happy New Moon in Taurus!

The Flower Moon cycle is in the Beltane season of merging the divine masculine and feminine energies within and creating something entirely new in to being. This new creation is made and infused with your love, desires, life force energy and magick.

The power of the Flower Moon is potent and enchanting!

Grab a cup a tea or a glass of wine and enjoy the reading below!


4/26/17 New Moon in Taurus

With the cycle beginning with the New Moon in Taurus, this is a time to embrace your sensual nature. Invoke all your senses, and find pleasure in each of them... Enjoy the breeze caressing your skin, listen to music that inspires you; indulge your taste buds with yummy foods; wear perfume oil that makes you feel sexy; look at art and images that uplift you. Enjoy the here and now and what it has to offer you.

The card pulled for the New Moon, is Focus. Where you put your energy will determine the course of the Flower Moon cycle. Focus is a powerful ally, especially when we are tending to our desires. Taurus is ruled by Venus, and the Goddess of love wants you to embody your desires and find pleasure in what you do and how you live. It is something to not feel guilty about or shame away from. Our society looks down on seeking pleasure... we usually resist and feel we do no deserve it.

Would you tell a friend she does not deserve to thrive? We didn't think so ;)

Set an intention to focus on pleasure, joy, and love.


5/3/2017 First Quarter Moon in Leo

Leo energy during the waxing moon is magnetic! This First quarter moon is an opportunity to truly shine in your magick and power. And the card pulled for this phase is the Lunar Eclipse card: Sovereignty. At this moment what would it feel like to embody your desires? The First quarter moon ignites desires and propels you to move forward with your intentions you set at the New Moon. Leo is also the King or Queen of the zodiac, so they lend you courage and remind you that you have the right to fully embody your desires, beauty, truth, and magick.

Give yourself permission to bloom

There is an opportunity here for you to be seen and heard and tests you to be the Queen of your realm. Ask Leo for courage and to not shy away because you may look back and regret it later.


5/10/2017 Full Moon in Scorpio

The Full Moon in Scorpio is Lunar Beltane! There is a deep energy of the Divine Masculine (Scorpio is co-ruled by Mars), and the energy of the Goddess Venus is potent in this moon cycle. What is merging in you right now? How can you fully surrender to this surge of love and create something from this merging?

We are not going to lie, sexual desires are at their peak during Lunar Beltane, so surrender to your erotic nature and make love! You can make love to your lover, partner, or to yourself! Be open to receiving pleasure. That is the theme of this moon cycle after all.

Are your boundaries supportive or restrictive?

The card pulled for the Full Moon is boundaries. So be aware of the boundaries that have been set in your life that restrict you and confine you. The Scorpio energy gives you the opportunity to look deeper into these boundaries and help dissolve them if they no longer serve you and your highest good, or fortify them if they are weak. Scorpio energy also helps you establish sexual boundaries if you need them. 


5/18/2017 Last Quarter in Aquarius

The Last quarter moon is always an opportunity to look back and reflect on the cycle. Did you focus on pleasure and embodiment? Did you struggle with receiving love and pleasure? Are your boundaries healthy or restrictive? During this time do not judge yourself, but simply observe.

Depending on your time zone, the Last Quarter will fall on Aquarius or Pisces and the card chosen is Rejuvenate. It is time to relax. It is time to allow stillness to permeate and allow grace and ease into your life... another trait of Taurus. Find peace in simple pleasures, book a massage or facial and allow your mind to retreat. Aquarius energy can be sporadic especially during the waning phase of the moon, and make your mind race and you will want to skip ahead this part and just keep moving forward. It is so important to find stillness and set aside time to relax.

Let ease and rejuvenation into your life


We hope you enjoyed this reading and we hope you bloom and fluorish in this moon cycle ahead!

Full Planting Moon- Besom Blessing Spell and Ritual

Happy Full Planting Moon! 

Full Planting Moon

Spring is sprouting all around for those of us on the Northern Hemisphere, and there is sense of newness in the air.

You may be feeling this new energy stirring within you.

The seeds and intentions that we have planted are gaining momentum and you could be seeing some progress happening or at least feeling internal shifts happening.

The Full Planting Moon is a reminder that the garden needs constant tending.

One of the most important parts of gardening is the weeding process.

When we weed a garden, we remove unwelcome plants that may be creeping in, while churning up and exposing new soil and nutrients from the Earth. Essentially, clearing out the old, to make way for the new growth. 

This Full Planting Moon holds potent  clearing and weeding energy. With the lunar energies taking place in Libra and Scorpio; you are asked to take a look deep within yourself and find what needs to be weeded or swept out. This will help you make room for the new growth you've been cultivating.

We have put together a Besom Cleansing Ritual tonight to help you energetically and literally cleanse your home of old unwanted energy to make way for new growth.

You can make any mundane daily chore into an intention infused ritual! Tonight, we are using our brooms to help us sweep away any old energies that may be inhibiting our growth.

Besom Magick

The Pagan Broom, or Besom is used for cleansing and protection. It's  traditionally made from hawthorn, birch twigs and willow wood. 

Besoms are often hung above entry ways to offer protection, and they are used in hand-fasting ceremonies, as they represent both the masculine and the feminine. 

Besoms can sweep out negative energy and help banish it. 

Some people don't allow the bristles to actually touch the ground, while many do. 

(You can even make your own besom for sacred use right here!)

There is no need to have an expensive besom for tonight's ritual, you can use any broom! Pair tonight's Full Planting Moon with your intention to help you cleanse away the dust from both your soul and your home!

Besom Cleansing Blessing

You will need: 

A Broom (Any type of broom will do, even if it's just your typical household broom!)

Sage to burn

Planting Moon

Mindfully clean your home. Clear our any junk and clutter that is physically or emotionally obstructing your growth, saving sweeping for last.

When you are ready to begin sweeping, set a clear intention within yourself of what you would like to remove and sweep away. 

Smudge your broom three times. Cleansing away all the past energies and stories your broom holds.

Sweep your house from east to west keeping your intention in mind.You will likely be feeling lighter and more energetic as you do this process. Repeat the spell as you finish your sweeping. 

 

"With my sacred broom, 

I remove all doom and gloom. 

I sweep from the deep, 

that I wish to no longer keep.

With a freshly swept grown, 

Negativity be bound,

I make room for positivity,

So Mote it be."

 

Cleanse yourself and your broom one more time before putting it away.

Full Moon in Libra/Scorpio

Now that you have cleared your home's energy, what will you allow in to fill up this space?

Use tonight's Full Moon to set a powerful intention of what you want to allow in. You aren't making a goal that you have to strive for, instead,plant a seed of an emotion you want to bring in more of! 

Emotions like security, joy, passion, love and gratitude would be wonderful ones to plant right now. 

The card pulled for this phase was Taurus, aka the Lover. The sun enters into the Earthy sign of Taurus this month, reminding us to plant only high vibrational seeds of love and joy.

Happy Full Moon! 

Tonight is a great night to cleanse and charge your crystals and decks under the Full Moon!

 

 

 

New Moon In Aries Energy Report: Planting Moon Cycle 2017

Happy New Moon in Aries!

New Moon in Aries

This is the first New Moon of the new season and holds some powerful transformative energy!

This Planting Moon cycle begins in Aries, the first sign of the Astrological Year; making this a very powerful New Moon for planting something new.

If you missed your New Year's Resolution, now is your chance to establish some powerful new intentions!

 

 

The Sun has also moved into Aries, giving us all a sense of a rebirth and preparation. In the Northern Hemisphere we are emerging from the depths of Winter preparing to build something new. Our friends In the Southern Hemisphere are preparing for the rebirth that their Winter might bring. 

We have put together this New Moon Energy Report based on the lunar, astrological and seasonal energies ahead. We also drew a card from the Spirit de la Lune deck for each turning, to provide deeper insight into Lady Luna's messages and lessons.

Grab a cup of tea, & read up on the cycle ahead.

What is it that you are planting? 

 

 
New Moon Energy Report
 

New Moon in Aries on March 27

The New Moon in Aries occurs on the 27th of March.

A New Moon in Aries brings forth some exciting energy. Aries are known for their zest, fiery drive and "yes" attitude. But it's important to remember that New Moon's are not always about action. This New Moon may be asking the Aries in you to practice your patience and deliberation.

Because this New Moon in Aries is conjunct to Retrograde Venus in Aries, we may have some aspect of our relationships tested. 

The Aries energy is very potent right now, aside from Venus; Mercury, Uranus, the Sun and the Moon are all in Aries right now!

Remember that words are seeds, and the ground is very fertile right now. Be careful how you react in the beginning of this lunar cycle. Watch your responses, and be careful how you react when triggered. It's just not worth it to stir anything up or say something you will regret later. Practice control in the present moment to avoid damage control in the future.

New Moon in Aries Energy Report 2017

The Card pulled for this phase is the Focus Card.

Aries energy is very spontaneous, and since we have several planets in the house of Aries right now, it's important to keep a focused mind.

Aries is also a sign of will power and action. Use your focus of thought and your will power to help pave way for the action to be taken later. This New Moon is a time of preparation, and feeling into the new energy without doing anything too sudden.

All of the rash spontaneous energy may feel like it's testing you. Remember to tap into your Will and focus during this New Moon. Make some intentions, and keep your mind's eye focused on what you want and where you are going.

First Quarter Moon in Cancer on April 3rd

 
First Quarter Moon in Cancer
 

The First Quarter Moon takes place in Cancer on April 3rd. Cancer brings in increased emotions, imagination and a sense of vulnerability. While the First Quarter Moon ignites our energy, the sign of Cancer might be asking you, on a personal level, what you want to ignite.

You may feel pulled to stay home, to avoid large groups of people and to only interact with those closest to you. Listen to your intuition. This energy may have you putting some of that New Moon Energy into creative action! 

The card pulled for this phase is the Create card. Begin creating something physical to do with your goals and intentions. Now is the time to begin taking steps. Create a vision board, set up an altar, take any small creative action towards your goal. The fiery energy of the First Quarter Moon paired with the intimate energy of Cancer is asking you to dig deep into what you can create for yourself and your family. 

Full Moon in Libra and Scorpio on April 11th

Full Moon Energy Reading April 2017

The Full Planting Moon takes place on April 11th, in the signs of Libra and Scorpio depending on where you are. 

This is a time of fulfillment and gratitude for the steps we have taken so far.

The Planting Moon Reminds us that there is still progress to make. 

The ground is still fertile for the seeds of your intentions, and great care must be taken in the garden at this time. 

Don't allow weeds to creep in, and don't forget to give your mind's garden plenty of love

 

Don't forget to check the blog on the 10th of April for the Full Planting Moon Ceremony!

The card pulled for this phase is the Taurus Card. The Taurus Card is also known as The Lover card. Being an Earth Element, this energy is all about nurturing growth. This could be asking you to take time in your physical garden connection with the Earth. Or perhaps give your mind's garden some extra love and attention. Meditate on your intentions, get rid of the weeds and self doubts you might have. Show yourself extra love on this Full Moon. Be thankful for how far you have come, and eager for what lies ahead.

Last Quarter Moon on April 19 in Capricorn and Aquarius.

 
Last Quarter Moon Energy Report Spirit de la Lune
 

The Last Quarter Moon takes place on April 19th in the sign of Capricorn and Aquarius depending on your location.

The Last Quarter Moon helps us wind our energy back down, and prepares us for the internal shift the New Moon will bring. You may feel your intuition and instincts heighten as you turn inward and reconnect to your self.

There might be a sense of tying up loose ends and finishing up tasks, especially with the influence of this Capricorn energy. Now is the time to take on any responsibilities you've been shirking, and prepare for anotherlLunar cycle.

The card pulled for this phase is the Connect Card. With Venus out of retrograde, you may be feeling pulled to reevaluate your social connections. Hopefully there won't be anything that needs mending or re-connecting, but now is the time to make amends and establish healthy connections with your loved ones. This energy may also be asking you to tie up loose ends within your personal or work correspondences as well. As the energy shifts back to New Moon, you are also asked to connect with your Self. 

 

Don't forget to charge your decks and crystals tonight. This is a very potent and powerful New Moon for intention setting, preparation and releasing.

Seed Moon Ceremony | Connect to the Fae

Happy Full Moon in Virgo!

Equinox season is almost here, and the land begins to shift into balance once again. Depending on where you are on Gaia, we are moving from the extremes of hot and cold into the rejuvenating breezes of Autumn or Spring. This is a wonderful time to connect with the land and the Fae realm!

The Fae, or Faeries, are the spirits of nature and the elements. In many of their myths and lore, their pure energies of the earth help bring the turning of the seasons, protect the flora and fauna, and keep the earth balanced. They are wild and are known to be tricksters to humans! But when approached with childlike wonder, respect, and sincerity, they can be wonderful allies to work with!

This Full Seed Moon spend some time on the land connecting to Mother's Earth's energy, let her cleanse you and rejuvenate you for the new season ahead. Connect with the Fae realm and you will add more magick to your Equinox whether you celebrate Ostara or Mabon!

Ways to connect with the Fae!

Take a Nature Walk in their Realm

IMG_9070.jpg

Go out into nature, whether it is a forest, beach, hiking trail, or park. Faeries are everywhere! But they especially love hidden places, so those who truly wish to make contact must take a quest. If you can be barefoot, even better! Making direct contact to the Earth is so healing and grounds our spirit to Gaia. 

Seek out your place to connect.

Set an intention to meet a Faerie.

Be barefoot, if you can.

Bring an offering: seasonal fruit, crystals, seeds, a lock of hair (something eco friendly)

Before you begin your walk, feel Gaia's energy move through the bottoms of your feet, opening the chakras at the bottom of your soles. We have eyes at the bottom of our feet! Imagine these chakras opening like you are opening your eyes, and you will activate your primal spiritual body helping you to connect with the Fae more. Now begin to walk slowly and intentionally. Let the eyes of your feet see for you. They will guide you to the Fae. Listen to your body and enjoy your surroundings. Stay in the present moment and look for signs of the next season... (Spring: new life, blossoms, green! Autumn: changing colors from green to orange to red, falling leaves).

Let your actual gaze soften so you begin to see a slight blur and be on the look out for the Faeries. Not all are visible, but can be felt energetically if you feel immersed in nature and Gaia's energy. If you feel you have found one, observe and give your offering. And let your interaction go from there. Connect with them in the imaginal realm! They vibrate in a higher vibrational realm, so using your imagination is a portal! This is why children can see them a lot easier than adults can! If you feel like you did not make contact this time, don't be discouraged! Leave an offering for them and try again another time. Mostly likely they are shy or busy doing Fae things :)

Create a Faerie Garden!

Welcome the Fae into your own garden and home by creating a space for them! Creating a sacred space for them will show you are eager and wanting to make a connection. This is thoughtful and fun to create!

You can place miniature furniture, or crystals, have fun and make it yours! It can be in a terrarium or planter inside your home, or outside in your actual garden space. Let your inner child create this and infuse it with your pure, playful energy!

If you are planning to plant seeds, or pot plants, before you begin your project, place the seeds in the Faerie garden or surround the garden with your plants and ask the Fae to bless your plants and seeds.

>> The hearts to the right have wildflower seeds in them! >>

 

 

Make sure to place an offering bowl or plate in your Faerie garden and give them presents every New or Full Moon! It can be food, crystals, dried herbs, or you can light incense, pick some fresh flowers for them, ask them what they would like! I left green heart chakra crystals for them! 

Virgo Full Moon Water

If you read our previous post about Moon Signs, you know that a Virgo Moon is a wonderful moon to connect with the earthy Fae realm and sacred plants of Gaia! Virgo Full Moon water is potent to water to use in your garden and on your house plants!

Create a batch of Moon Water for your Fae garden and plants and leave it out under the Full Moon tonight! You can add crystals like Moss Agate, Green Aventurine, and Prehnite for new growth, and plant care. 

Create as big of a batch as you need or want to have with or without crystals. The Virgo Healer energy of the Moon will still charge the water. The next morning water your plants and give thanks to the Fae for their magick and blessings!

Not sure when to water your plants?

Let the Moon Signs and Fae help you! Water your plants every New and Full Moon and when the Moon is in water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces) and earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn)!

Be sure to lay any other crystals out under the Full Moon!

Also, place your oracle cards out under the Moon in your Fae garden and ask them to bless your readings!

New Seed Moon Solar Eclipse in Pisces: Moon Charting for Your Moon Sign

Happy New Moon Solar Eclipse, Moon Tribe!

We are shaking things up over here on the Moon Blog and we wanted to offer you something different this New Moon!

The Solar Eclipse in Pisces expands your dreams and may gift you a vision of new possibilities and opportunities to expand creatively. It is up to you to follow your intuition through this new threshold and dive in. So that is what we did!

Today we want to share more about Moon Signs and how to connect with them through this Seed Moon Cycle.  

So grab a cup of tea and sit for a spell and learn more about your Moon Sign!


What is a Moon Sign?

Most people know their Sun Sign, but the Moon Sign is just as equally as important. Just as the Sun was in a zodiac sign the day of your birth, the Moon was also traveling through a zodiac sign adding another layer to your cosmic makeup. The Moon travels quickly through all 12 zodiac signs every moon cycle, so in order to know which Moon Sign is yours, you need to know the exact time of your birth. You can find your birth time on your birth certificate, or hopefully one of your parents may know.

The Moon filters the zodiac signs differently than the Sun. The Sun radiates light, so your Sun Sign is usually the sign that makes a big chunk of your personality and how you let others see you, or how you shine your light outwardly into the world. However, the Moon Sign reveals our inner world, and reflects to us how we perceive the world and relate to others. The Moon rules the emotions, so your Moon Sign will reveal how you control your emotions (or how your emotions control you) and what you need to feel safe to be your best self and shine. Your Moon Sign also reveals your subconscious motives, so if your Moon sign does not resonate with you, you may need to look deeper and confront your subconscious fears. Don't worry though, the Moon sign is not meant to be scary, but helps reveal deeper layers of our psyche, so we can learn more about ourselves and ture desires. Plus it's really fun to read about!


The Moon Signs

Once you know your Moon Sign, now you can learn more about it and how you can work with the archetypal energy through the moon cycle! Read about your Moon Sign below!

 

 

 

Moon Sign in Aries

The Inspirer

Aries Moon Sign - Spirit de la Lune

Energetic, Enthusiastic, Wears Heart on Sleeve

If you are an Aries Moon, you bring the fire and passion into everything you do. Your emotions boil and bubble over and that can be so refreshing, but also intense! It is important for the Aries Moon  to channel their zealous energy into healthy hobbies and activities. Hotheadedness can be an issue if you let your emotions and energy scatter. You may be impulsive, but that is also a part of your charm. Just try not to offend someone in the process. To balance an Aries Moon, bring more calm and watery energies into your surroundings. Moon Charting: Track how much water you should be drinking to add more cooling soothing vibes. You can also track when you feel the most positive and vibrant, and when you feel your anger rise. Colors to use: Soothing blues and vibrant shades of red and orange.

Moon Sign in Taurus

A Taurus Moon sign loves affection, adoration, and gives love with their whole heart and soul. Taurus Moon's shine and feel the most confident in a loving relationship. You are also very intuitively connected with your body and senses, so make sure you truly listen to your bodies needs! Taurean Moon signs are known to eat their emotions, especially when stressed, so when you feel you begin to over indulge that is the time to check in with the source of your emotions. Whether or not you are in a relationship, the best relationship you can love and nurture is the one with yourself! Moon Charting: Track how you nurture and love yourself through the moon cycle, adding pampering and beautify rituals will spark your inner Venus (Venus is the ruler of Taurus)! You can also track your other relationships, or when your heart chakra is most open or closed. Color suggestions: Reds and pinks for love and sensuality, and shades of green for your Heart chakra!

The Lover

Taurus Moon Sign - Spirit de la Lune

Affectionate, Confident, Gives Love Wholeheartedly

Moon Sign in Gemini

The Twins:

Curious, Analytical, Loves a great debate or conversation

As a Gemini Moon, you may feel pulled by all your emotions all at once.  The duality of Gemini brings forth many voices and perspectives from within. You have a talent to articulate what you are feeling or what you think you "should" be feeling, but may forget to actually feel it! When you feel overwhelmed, remember to come back to your breath and  breathe Gemini! Your natural element is air, so focusing on your breath will ground you back into your body and the present moment (allowing your emotions to move through you too). You may feel anxious most days, but it is usually because your mind is creating or replaying multiple scenarios simultaneously! Gemini Moons are a breath of fresh air, but don't burn yourself out. Moon Charting: Focus on staying in the present moment and observe your surroundings more. Track and see if you are a listener or talker or a balance of both. Create a daily grounding or calming meditation ritual, so you can stay present and in your body. Colors to use: Aqua blues and soothing purple tones bring calm and stillness.

Moon Sign in Cancer

The Moon is the ruler of Cancer, so if you are a Cancer Moon, you are a true Moon Child! You are so connected to your emotions in every minute, you may already notice a pattern in the ebb and flow of your own emotions and energy. You may be quiet or shy, at least at first, but still waters run deep and once someone gains your trust you are completely devoted.You prefer small intimate parties and you love the comfort of your own home. Creating your sanctuary is so important for you to feel safe, supported, and to grow creatively. You need your sanctuary space to have time to feel your emotions and let them move through you. Remember to stay active and social Cancer Moon to keep your fire ignited, too much water can make you feel like a heavy wet blanket! Moon charting: Track the days you exercise so you can find your active windows and keep your fire ignited! A cleaning routine will keep you grounded and help you create and maintain your sanctuary. Color suggestions: Choose oranges to raise your energy, and choose other colors intuitively that match your mood.

The Nurturer:

Compassionate, Sentimental, Family is everything

Moon Sign in Leo

 

The Hero:

Charming, Generous, Loves to make people laugh

You are a charmer, Leo Moon! Always the life of the party, Leo Moons love to shine and want people to bask and enjoy the warmth their light creates.  As a Leo Moon, you love to feel needed and want to further a cause you are passionate about. Though some people may see it as selfish, you put your needs and priorities first, and there is no shame in that! People can learn a lot from you! And since you glow like the full moon, you can be a very inspirational leader because people are magnetically drawn to you. Do not let this get to your head, Leo. The downfall for a lot of Leo Moon's is that they let their ego lead rather than their spirit. This can lead to abuse of power or manipulation. As long as you stay true and faithful to your cause, the Hero within you can rise and you will light the way for others after you. Moon Chart: Track the days you feel inspired and creative and the days you don't feel so connected. Stay connected to your spirituality so you can stay humble and centered in your values. Colors: Use tones or yellow and gold to keep your light shining. Royal purple for spirituality.

Moon Sign in Virgo

If you find yourself frequently getting lost in a forest and have frequent encounters with faeries, then you are probably a Virgo Moon. You are drawn to nature and commune with Mother Earth and Her animals and almost prefer their company more than other human's. You may feel like an outsider, and some may feel you are unapproachable or aloof, but once someone knows you, you let them in to your wild untamed forests within and they can't help but feel like they have found a chest after a wild treasure hunt. You captivate them. Virgo Moons need room to grow and stretch, and you prefer tidy surroundings to do so as well. When Virgo Moons have the structure they need, it brings  absolute freedom. With this freedom your roots will grow deep and strong. It can be hard for you to let go or people and things because you take a lot of time and effort to nurture your surroundings, like a beautiful wild garden. As a Virgo Moon, you need the wilderness and open skies to feel rejuvenated or you will get too stuffy and bitter. Moon Charting: Make getting out into nature a priority! Learn the local herbs and flora and forage to make a healing brew! Try a vegan or plant based diet this month and see how you feel. Track when you feel the most grounded and when you feel too restricted. Colors: Browns and greens bring out your earthy vibes and connect you to nature.

 

The Healer:

Reliant, Strong, Feels best in Untamed Nature

Moon Sign in Libra

The Peacemaker:

Kind, Thoughtful, Loves to keep the peace

Libra Moon signs tend to put everyone first before themselves. Though your sign is all about balance, you like to make sure others feel balanced rather than yourself! Libra Moons make the best counselors and therapists because they are so intuitively connected to others' needs and emotions. However this can leave little to no room for balance in their own lives! You need to make sure you are very clear with your needs and desires are and make sure you tend to them daily. Scheduling in 'me time' is essential for your well being. The more balanced you are, the more you can be there to serve and help others, which is a passion of yours. It's a win win! You are ruled by Venus too, so keep your surroundings peaceful and beautiful to you. This will keep you relaxed and rejuvenate you. Moon Charting: Track when you feel most balanced in fulfilled and when you neglected your own needs. Colors to use: Use pinks for self love, and any colors that are soothing to you.

Moon Sign in Scorpio

You are one of the most intense Moon Signs if you are a Scorpio Moon. As a Scorpion you are the masters of emotions and need an intense emotional connection to everyone you meet. You can scare people with this intensity, but also you intrigue them and they want to learn more. You like to keep people guessing and the mystery is palpable with you. Be aware, Scorpio Moon, of how your actions and emotions control others. Yes, I said control, because you love to toy with others emotions and think of it as a game. But karma usually keeps you in check. If you feel you are out of control, jealousy and possessiveness can take over. You need to feel that deep, soulful, connection, so one-on-one convos are best when connecting with others, and your spiritual life will be a big passion and focus for you. Moon Charting: It would be a great idea for you to track all the emotions you feel in a moon cycle and see what you feel the most! Choose the colors for your emotions intuitively!

The Shaman:

Intriguing, Mysterious, Loves deep passionate affairs

Moon Sign in Sagittarius

The Explorer: 

Optimistic, Fun-loving, Loves to go on adventures

When you meet a Sagittarius Moon, you feel like you are being reunited with an old friend! You are a optimist at heart, Sagittarius Moon and you love to be the friend who knows how to give a good pep talk. You are carefree and see the best in people and situations. You are great with children, because you are not afraid to be playful or childlike. You also love to flirt! It may be hard for you to commit to a relationship because when things get too serious, that's when you like to back away. You do love companionship though, so don't be afraid to open your heart to love! Think of it as a new adventure you can embark on! When you do settle down, you are loyal, warm and generous with your love. Moon Charting: Track when you feel the most optimistic and pessimistic in your moon cycle. You can also track when you prefer to be more social and outgoing and when you need to space. Color suggestions: Use bring colors like yellows, reds, and greens!

Moon Sign in Capricorn

If you are a Capricorn Moon, you know what it is like to be disciplined and know the meaning of hard work. You are deeply connected to your family and show your love through your actions. You show your love by providing and taking care of your loved ones. If you feel like you cannot provide, you can feel unworthy. Don't be so hard on yourself Capricorn Moon! You work so hard, you deserve to be proud of your accomplishments! There is nothing wrong with asking for help once in a while, or letting your emotions show through. You can be so inspiring, but also intimidating. Showing your soft side once in a while can deepen you connections and you may actually like it! Capricorn Moons need to feel they are needed and are driven by their love for their family. You are the rock and the reliable one. Moon Charting: Track when you feel the most driven and motivated and when you feel the most sluggish. Also track when you feel you can express your emotions easily and when they feel restricted. Colors: Use brown tones and greens!

The Achiever:

Hardworking, Cautious, Loves to provide security

Moon Sign in Aquarius

 

The Visionary:

Cool, Quirky, Needs freedom to soar

Aquarius Moons need the most freedom of all the Moon signs. You need your space to experience new ways of being and thinking. The company you choose loves how care free you can be and you bring out the best in people! You have a knack for understanding how others' minds work. Because of this, you also know you can bring out the worst in people and which buttons to press, especially your close relations. However, it is always a reflection of whats going on in your mind. You are an Air sign, so you like to stay in control of your emotions, but when it gets to be too much to bear, the Water Bearer spills the cup and your emotions runneth over. You need to learn to surrender to your emotions and let them move through you, your head will feel more clear after! Don't be afraid of your own emotions! You also need to keep your brain active and challenged, so make sure your hobbies are fun and challenge you to be a better person. Moon Charting: Track when you feel your ego taking over, or your spirit takes over. You can also track when you feel very inspired and motivated, and when you begin to feel apathetic. Colors to use: Bright blues for creativity and expression and gray tones for when you feel clouded or subdued. 

Moon Sign in Pisces

Dear Pisces Moon you are the Moon in her most sensitive sign. You feel it all and soak in everyone else's emotions like a sponge.  Empathy is a powerful gift and can open very clear, channeled, psychic visions and pathways. You feel where the energy is going before most people understand what they are actually feeling, but it is easy for the Pisces Moon to feel overwhelmed and paralyzed from all this energy and stimulation. It is so important Pisces, for you to set healthy boundaries and cleanse your energy daily. You actually may have a hard time deciphering your own emotions because you carry so many from others. The more you ground and cleanse the more you will tune in to your true emotions. Because you empathy is so strong, you need to make time and create space you can drift off into. You are a fish and you need space to swim deeply and away from others; times of solitude are very rejuvenating for your spirit. Moon Charting: Track when you feel most empathetic and intuitive, and when you feel the most pessimistic or overwhelmed. Focusing on grounding and cleansing is important daily. Colors to use: Black for grounding and protection, orange to keep your energy up, purple tones for intuition.

 

The Psychic:

Imaginative, Intuitive, Deeply Empathetic


The Art of Moon Charting

Now it is time to Tune to the Moon and let the moon be your guide.

We created free printable Zodiac Moondala Compasses so you can learn to track your inner moon tides!

The moon compass will guide you through each moon phase and help you observe your unique energy flow or intentions. Please keep in mind that the Moon phases do not follow our calendar system. There are 28 spaces, but the moon cycle is approximately 28 -29 days long. Dates will not always be accurate so just go with the flow ;)

To begin, figure out your moon sign (you must know your time of birth) and choose the moon compass with your Moon Sign Zodiac Moondala. Fill out the dates for this current moon cycle starting on the New Moon. We kept them blank so you could use these for any future moon cycles! And don't worry Southern Hemisphere babes, there are charts for you too!

Start on the New Moon and clarify your intentions for the cycle. Each Moon sign has a different energy to track (read about your Moon Sign to learn what to track). Now choose the colors you will use to fill in each moon slice that compliment your intentions and moon sign. I always recommend two colors to begin with and to keep it simple if you are new to moon charting. For example, if I wish to track my physical energy I could choose orange for when I feel energetic, productive and vibrant, and blue for when I feel tired, lethargic, or lazy. Or if I am tracking my intuition, I could use purple when I feel intuitive and connected and the color gray for when I feel disconnected or cloudy. Or if I am tracking a general feel of my energy, I would choose a color intuitively each time. The choice is up to you and there is no wrong way to do this! DO NOT overthink this step, just have fun with it and let your intuition and creativity guide you!

Once you choose your colors, begin tracking daily! This means checking in with yourself daily throughout the moon cycle. The best time to do this is before you go to bed, or in the evening when your day is winding down. If weather permits, and even if it is only for 5 minutes, step outside into the night and connect with the moon (even if she is not visible). Ground yourself, connect to your intuition, and reflect on your day from that space. Check in with your intentions and what you are tracking, and then afterwards, color in your moon slice accordingly. There is room around the moon compass to write any keywords or emotions that felt potent to you.  If you do this daily and commit to checking in with yourself, by the end of the moon cycle you will have a moon map that is a unique energetic flow of you! The more you fill these out, you may begin to see patterns and your connection to your intuition, your Moon sign, and Lady Luna will deepen!

Sage Moon Ceremony | Purifying the Aura with Lunar Infused Sage Spray

Happy Sage Moon!

This Full Moon & Lunar Eclipse in Leo is packed full of powerful magical potential! 

 Tonight's Full Moon gives you the chance to step fully into your powerful magic.

Six months ago you planted a seed or held a vision of your future. Today is the day to check in and see how far you have come. 

Lunar eclipses occur every six months, giving us all an opportunity to re-evaluate our personal progress with fresh eyes and new clarity.

In order to step into our full power and realize our true potential, we must release old emotional baggage from the past six months.

There is no room for that which doesn't serve you, when entering a new phase in life. 

The Sage Moon reminds us to keep our thoughts and energy clear of negativity. Purify your energy often, cleanse your space and aura in order to make room for new growth!! 

For tonight's Full Moon, we wanted to make an aura and space cleansing spray, infused with the Full Moon Eclipse Energy. 

This powerful little bottle will clear your aura from negativity in only a few sprays. Because it is smokeless, it can be used to cleanse the energy of cars, the work place and offices.

Sage Spray For Cleansing Auras | Spirit de la Lune
 

This spray can be used in place of smudging with smoke. This little bottle will be both powerful and easy to make using essential oils, salt, and other ingredients you may already have!

Gather Your Ingredients | Spirit de la Lune

Aura & Space Cleansing Spray:

  • 1 oz Glass spray bottles
  •  Warm water (natural, distilled, or moon water works best.)
  • 1 Teaspoon Witch Hazel, (Or unflavored vodka) to preserve
  • 1 pinch of natural pink Hymalain salt or sea salt
  • 8 drops of Sage essential oil
  • 4-6 drops of essential oils of choice
  • Crystals for charging the spray

On the night of the full moon gather your ingredients.. 

Add a pinch of salt to your bottle. Salt is a natural energy purifier and helps ground the energetic body. It brings our energy back to a 0 and creates a fresh clean slate for us. 

Add your drops of oil. For tonight's spray, we used Sage essential Oil for purity, clarity and ease of thought, with Fir needle for . 

You can use this guide here to decide which oils you want to use. We recommend definitely using at least some sage for this spray!, as it's the perfect purifier for this energy.

Add the witch hazel, a natural preservative with soothing calming properties.This will help your spray from going stale. (but it's still recommended to use the bottle within a month or two.)

Add the water. Water is a powerful conductor and transfers and shifts energy quickly. It's best to use warm water to fully dissolve the salt and mix the oil together. 

You can add small crystals to your bottle, or set up a grid around your spray tonight and charge it under the Full Moon Eclipse.
