2017 Blessing Moon Cycle Energy Reading - Abundance and Flow!

Happy New Moon in Cancer!

This Blessing Moon cycle is going to have such a beautiful flow of energy! The Solstice just ushered in a new season (Summer for Northern Hemi & Winter for Southern Hemi), and with every new season this is a time to reset, create new intentions, and begin anew. The theme for the Blessing Moon cycle is abundance, celebration, contentment, and finding your unique rhythms and flow with the Universe.

With Jupiter going direct last Full Moon, June 9th, we have an amazing positive flow of energy moving through our intentions giving us optimism, joy, playfulness, abundance, and luck! 

 

This will be a wonderful moon cycle to focus on abundance, career goals, and expanding on your dreams!

This Moon cycle is also unique because all 4 elements are present at each of the four turnings (New, First Quarter, Full, and Last Quarter Moons). This does not happen very often! Usually one or two elements are missing and there is a dominant element in the Moon cycle.

When each element is present for each of the 4 major phases of the moon cycle, there is elemental equilibrium and is called a Pentagram Cycle.

This Blessing Moon cycle we begin with the New Moon in Cancer (the water element); First Quarter in Libra (the air element); the Full Moon in Capricorn (the earth element); and the Last Quarter in Aries (the fire element)!

With each element present, this means manifesting your intentions or abundance, will most likely happen this moon cycle! When working with magick and manifesting, each of the elemental energies need to be present and invoked. 

Keep reading below, to see how you can work with each of the elements this moon cycle to move forward on your path!


June 24th: New Moon in Cancer

flow with productivity

The New Moon brings us into the watery realm of Cancer. Depending on the time zones, some people will experience the New Moon on Friday, and some on Saturday, so always consult your own moon app in your specific time zone.

The Cancer energy may have you feeling extremely emotional and internal, but you could harness your emotions to infuse your intentions and make your emotions your ally. The card chosen for the New Moon is the Honey Moon card for productivity! This can be a very productive and enriching moon cycle if you choose it to be! Call in your Spirit guides and Higher Self, and begin by writing out your intentions and really pour your heart into them. Don't hold back! When you have written it all out, now actually speak it aloud to the New Moon (though you may not see her, She is there with you :)

If you get emotional while speaking your intentions aloud, don't fight them, let them flow through you. This is infusing your intentions and speaking them aloud raises their vibrations. 

For this coming Full Moon, we will be making an abundance grid (there will be a blog post for the ceremony on the Full Moon so stay tuned!). Begin to Choose the crystals you want to work with. Whatever crystals you choose lay them out under the New Moon energy and let them hear your intentions too. This will infuse the crystals with your energy.


July 1st: First Quarter in Libra

check in with your instincts

The First Quarter brings us into the airy realm of Libra. Depending on the time zones, some people will experience the First quarter on Friday, and some on Saturday, so always consult your own moon app in your specific time zone.

Quarter Moons are always a good time in the moon cycle to check in with yourself. The card chosen for the phase the the Wolf Moon for trusting your instincts. Libra energy may have you feeling indecisive possibility about a major direction change in your intentions for your career, or a relationship (most likely a business relationship)... trust your instincts. Check in with your guides and listen to their message. 

 

Today will be a great day to invoke the air realm and prepare your crystals further for the grid. Give them and yourself a good smudge. Use Palo Santo, sage, or any incense and cleanse each crystal and your body. This will help shift your energy in the direction you need it to go.


July 9th: Full Moon in Capricorn

devote yourself to your goals

The Full Moon brings us into the earth realm of Capricorn. Depending on the time zones, some people will experience the Full moon on Saturday, and some on Sunday, so always consult your own moon app in your specific time zone.

If there was ever a Full Moon to work with career and money magick it is the Full moon in Capricorn. Capricorn energy is stable and abundant and knows how to achieve. The card pulled for the Full Moon is Devotion. Devotion is key to creating success. Committing to your goals and committing to your worth will show the universe you are ready to receive your abundance. If there is fear and resistance, ask yourself how you are self sabotaging your success. Capricorn will give you a no non-sense answer. Capricorn is practical and knows what it wants and won't let fear stand in the way. Use the energy to push forward and activate your crystal grid! (There will be a ceremony all about this, don't worry!) Make sure you have all your crystals needed for the your grid by this time and that they are all cleansed and ready to go!


July 16th: Last Quarter in Aries

offer & inspire gratitude

The Last Quarter moon leaves us in the fire realm of Aries. Aries is an interesting energy in the waning moon. We can literally burn off residual energy by creating heat in our body... detox yoga, a good sweat session, or relaxing in the sauna are a few ideas to try.

However, the card pulled for this phase the the Harvest Moon reminding us to have gratitude for the blessings we already have. Instead of releasing negativity or unwanted energy at the end of this cycle, release gratitude instead. Let Aries inspire you and go out of your way to show you are grateful. Write a thank you card to someone who was really helpful and supportive this cycle. Make a list of blessings and burn them in a fire and bury the ashes in the earth. The earth will renew and transform this energy

offering heartfelt gratitude will keep you in the flow of abundance

Leave your crystal grid activated until the last day of this moon cycle (July 22nd). As a thank you to the crystals and the elements, choose one crystal from the grid and give it back to the earth. Anoint this crystal with your favorite perfume oil to invoke fire and place it out in nature somewhere as an offering to the land, or leave it somewhere someone else can find it. They will find your crystal and see it as a gift or sign, thus abundance, joy, and gratitude will continue to grow and cause a ripple effect.

We hope you enjoyed this reading and hope you practice these offerings this cycle! we would love to hear your story as your journey unfolds this Blessing Moon cycle!


Don't forget to choose the crystals you want to use for your crystal grid for the Full Moon on July 9th! Cleanse them under the New Moon and try the Blessing Moon reading from the Spirit de la Lune guidebook!

Full Honey Moon - Connecting to Animal Medicine - The Honey Bee

Honey Moon | Spirit de la Lune

Happy Honey Moon! 

We are on the last legs of Spring, and getting ready to welcome in the even warmer months of Summer up here in the northern hemisphere. 

The earth is buzzing with life once again as this Full Moon is ushering in the sweetness and serenity that comes with summer.

This Full Honey Moon is also known as the Strawberry Moon and Rose Moon in various cultures, but all the names have one thing in common.. Sweetness. 

Now, this moon might have you digging real deep to find that sweetness within you, because this Full Moon has potential to be an intense storm of emotions.

The Full Moon is in Sagittarius, and the Sun is in Gemini. This could make for a very emotional and loud few days especially with Jupiter going direct on the same day.

Sagittarius is the truth teller and story teller of the zodiac.. So expect others to be a bit louder than normal. You may feel your own emotions heightened during this time, and it may be hard to keep your own harsh words contained!

Full Honey Moon | Spirit de la Lune

It's important to ground your energy and stay centered during this Full Moon!

But sometimes just remembering to stay calm isn't enough..

This Honey Moon card was designed with an image of a Honey Bee in the center. 

 Each of our Major Arcana cards carry Archetypes and symbols for the moons that they represent. 

Archetypes awaken stored sacred knowledge deep within our souls.

 

For this card, we chose the Archetype of the Honey Bee.

Spirit speaks to us through many facets! It manifests  in a variety of forms and with a variety of messages! Spirit can be found in the flowers, crystals, animals and even people.

Since the earliest recorded history, various cultures have seen animals as harbingers, messengers and even carriers of personality traits we wish to adopt.

Native American beliefs on Animal Totems are often the first thing that come to mind on this subject, but these practices have been found throughout many cultures of the ancient and modern world.

By focusing on traits and attributes of our totem, we internalize their traits and begin to shift and take on the characteristics we need from our totem.

You may feel drawn to one particular animal guide your entire life, but there are many short term guides out there that have messages and lessons for us on a day to day basis.

For tonight's Full Moon Ceremony,   we are connecting to the totem of the Honey Bee.

Honey Bee Animal Spirit Ceremony

The Honey Bee does not have to be your main animal guide to still be of help to you. Adopt the nature of this peace loving ally this week. Rely on the totem of the Honey Bee to ground you during this Full Moon. 

This ceremony will help you connect to the energy of the Honey Bee, to serve as a strong reminder and totem to help you during this Full Moon.

All that's needed for tonight is a small offering for the Honey Bees and an open heart.

Adopting the nature and traits of the Honey Bee.

The Honey Bee is a creature of sweetness, though many people fear them! It's been said that bees can smell or pick up on people's fears! Perhaps they lack fear of their own, and feel drawn to investigate ours as it is such an opposing emotion to their natural nature.

Often times the Honey Bee pushes our fears right up to our awareness when we are confronted with them! They are small but loud reminders to us to not be afraid of what we don't understand. Once you shed your fear around the bee, they buzz sweetly near you, sharing space and minding their own beeswax.

The Honey Bee teaches us to do the impossible and believe in miracles! Early scientific research stated that Honey Bees shouldn't be able to fly. They defy our known laws of physics and show us that miracles can happen. (Some further studies have been done on this, and scientists are beginning to understand the Bee, but there is still much that isn't known about these little guys.)

Honey Bees are also an excellent totem for productivity, and manifesting abundance. They teach us to work together, to rely on our hive/tribe. They represent the collective conscious, and remind us that everything is connected.

They are fiercely protective of their own, and would die defending their home and family. They are driven by the passion to find the sweetest nectars.

Invoking and connecting to the Honey Bee, especially around such emotional times can help you create harmonic balance within yourself. 

connecting to the honey bee and honoring animal guides. 

Tree Talker Art | Honey Bee

Because animals are pure consciousness, they often can't communicate with us properly if our own energy is muddy. 

Take some white sage, smudge and cleanse yourself and your space if you feel called.

Take a moment to clear your mind.

Breath in and out through your nose, knowing that each breath is cleansing your energy, opening you up to Spirit's message.

Mindful breathing can help take you into a trance like state on the astral realm, where your guides and messengers await. 

Next state your intention to connect to the Honey Bee. You can say whatever you'd like, or follow this prayer below. The point is to make a purposeful intention to connect.

                                                   (Source)

 

After you state your intention, sit in mindfulness for a few moments and let go and release your intention while in that mindful trance like state. 

Next, leave an offering out for the bees this Full Moon!

Save the Bees | Plant flowers | Spirit de la Lune Honey Moon Ceremony

Our Bee population is suffering immensely right now and could really use us as their ally. Leave out a bowl of water for them. Do not pick their flowers! Instead  plant new bee supporting flowers and pollinators in your garden!

You can even leave out a small crystal like honey calcite as an offering to let the bees know their messages and energy is welcome.

Have patience and observe your world for the next few days. You called in the Honey Bee, and released your intention to the universe, now all you have to do is look around. 

 Be open to how the Bee will show up in your life! You might see one physically buzz around you, or you may see a photo or an advertisement or billboard with a Bee on it.  Be aware of the emotional state you are in when you encounter this guide, as that is often where their lessons lie. 

Be aware of what you were doing, going or thinking while you encounter this guide. 

Honey Bee Spirit Ally | Spirit de la lune

Once you connect and feel the energy of this Honey Bee, you can call in it's essence and spiritual presence whenever you feel the need. 

The above method for connecting to the Honey Bee could be used to connect with any of your Animal Guides! You can even use this little ritual to discover who your personal Animal Guide could be if you don't already know. 

 

Lunar Blessings

Don't forget to leave a little offering to your new ally, and charge your decks and crystals tonight under the Full Moon!

 

 

 

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.

 
New Moon Energy Reading | Spirit de la Lune
 

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. 

Grab your iced coffee and read below for this cycle's full energy reading! 


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 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.

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!
