Harvest Moon ritual Spirit de la Lune

"Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower."

Albert Camus

The new season is almost upon us and soon the trees will shed their leaves and prepare for the darker half of the year.

Mabon is the threshold for the darker half of the year. A balance of light and dark, the Autumn Equinox gives us a balance of day and night and is a beautiful reminder of balance and harmony within and without.

This year the Autumn Equinox falls on Sept. 21 or 22nd depending on your location and this Full Moon opens the Mabon portal.

Like the trees, we can prepare and shed our leaves too… anything weighing us down, limiting beliefs, habits or patterns that no longer serve us.

This ceremony will help you shed what no longer fits into your life and help you invoke what you truly desire for the rest of the year and darker half.

The Full Moon Ceremony tonight can be done anytime within the Mabon portal between today, 9/13 to 9/22. You can do the first half of the ceremony tonight on the Full Moon tonight and finish the ceremony on Mabon as well. What does your intuition guide you to do?


Part 1: Shedding Your Leaves

What you need:

Cauldron (or any fire proof container)

Black Candle

Shedded leaves

Black pen


Mabon ritual - autumn leaves - spirit de la lune

Go out on a nature walk and look for hints of Mabon, or the new season, around you and connect with the trees and their wisdom. Bring a basket with you and forage for falling leaves. Ask the trees for their permission to take their leaves and thank them for their gifts. Choose how many leaves call to you. And only choose leaves that have fallen to the ground already.

These leaves represent what is falling away and what you are shedding from your life. Bring these leaves home and light your black candle within your cauldron or the fireproof container. On each leaf, write one thing you are letting go of with the black pen. When you are ready, take each leaf one by one, and light the leaf on fire. let it burn in the cauldron and say this spell with each leaf you burn:

Like a leaf falling to the ground,

I shed ________ (say what is on your leaf)

I burn this away, I am no longer bound.

Keep the ashes in your cauldron and on your altar until you are ready to do the second half of the ceremony. Make sure you burn the black candle down completely before you begin the next half of the ceremony. You can burn it all at once or daily until it is done.


Part 2: Invoking the Spirit of Mabon

White candle

Cauldron (same fireproof container)

White Candle

Mabon Incense (recipe below)

A jar to store the incense

Mortar and pestle (to blend the recipe together)


When you are ready to do the second half of the ceremony, make sure you have the ingredients and everything ready near or on your altar.

Take your cauldron with the ashes and candle wax and go outside and bury them in the ground. You can say this blessing while you do so:


Thank you for the lessons you have held for me

Now I bury the past and set myself free


Bring the cauldron back in and place the white candle in it. Light the candle and call in the Spirit of Mabon to bless your ceremony as you begin to call in your desires and what you want to step into now that you have shed your leaves and the burdens weighing you down. you can say something like this or similar:

Mabon spirit ritual spirit de la lune

I call in the Spirit of Mabon to bless this new season in my life.

Guide my intuition as I seek my desires and embody the lessons I have learned.

With a grateful heart I am ready to thrive and call in this new energy with ease and joy.

May this new season be fruitful and for the Highest Good of all.

Blessed be!


With your ingredients and Mortar and Pestle begin to make your Mabon incense, using equal parts or whatever feels good to you.

mabon incense recipe spirit de la lune

Mabon incense recipe:

Bay leaves - write blessings and what you are calling in or focusing on until the next Spring Equinox

Cinnamon

Sage

Rosemary

Dry apples

Mugwort

Any other herbs that feel like Autumn to you (nutmeg, cloves, star anise, etc)

incense recipe portar pestle witchy

Start with the bay leaves and taking one leaf at a time grind it in the mortar. Say this blessing with each one:

I call in ________ (what is says on the bay leaf) into my space

In this new season I embody this with ease and grace

As you grind and blend the rest of ingredients together, focus on this new season unfolding for you, what you are looking forward to, what you are excited about and what you would do and feel embodying these new energies you are calling in. Infuse the incense with your beautiful intentions for this new season ahead of you!

After you create the incense to your liking, store it in your special container for it and sprinkle some on your white candle. You can also move the white candle out of the cauldron and burn the incense in there. Don’t use all of it today, make sure you have enough to use throughout the season. As the incense is burning say this prayer:

smoke and flame spirit de la lune

Spirit of Mabon, I offer these sacred herbs with my desires I am ready to claim

Carry my prayers to the heavens with this smoke and flame

I am ready to flow into this new rising energy,

Blessed Mabon! So it is, and so mote it be!

Now you have a beautiful incense with your Mabon blessings and desires infused into it! Keep the rest of your incense and white candle on your altar and every time you light the candle burn the incense and tap into the energy you felt while you were creating it!

We hope you have a beautiful Harvest Moon, Blessed Mabon and new season ahead!

New Moon in Virgo Moonthly Energy Reading Harvest Moon Cycle

Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Virgo | Energy Reading Harvest Moon

Happy New Moon in Virgo!

This New Moon in Virgo brings us a fresh burst of energy to help us make clear cut decisions so we can achieve our goals and step into our full potential.


Since April we have endured retrogrades and eclipses that have brought up past wounds, lessons on forgiveness and reasons for us to let go and finally heal. It feels like we have been torn down, rebuilt and torn down again.

This New Moon in Virgo will help give us the needed push or missing piece to finally pull everything together in a lasting way.

We had a series of Eclipses, and Jupiter, Pluto, Neptune, Mercury, Chiron, Saturn and now even Uranus retrogrades affecting us this year. Like a caterpillar before it enters it’s cocoon, we must shed and shed and shed again. A caterpillar doesn’t just shed it’s skin once before it becomes a butterfly… It spends most of its time shedding and rejuvenating itself.

All of this non stop astrological energy has tried to help us shed our old ways so that we too can step into a better future and a new us. It is safe to say, we have had a roller coaster of a year, but there has been purpose to the lessons.

This New Moon is welcoming in the Virgo season. Virgo seasons is about reassessing our lives, taking charge, and making the changes needed so that we can move where we want to go.

Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Virgo | Energy Reading Harvest Moon

Using our Spirit de la Lune Planners, decks and the 4 turnings of the moon we create the Moonlthy Lunar Report for each New Moon. Read on to see what this New Moon in Virgo has in store for you!

New Moon in Virgo

Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Virgo | Energy Reading Harvest Moon

This New Moon joins the sun in Virgo on the 30th of August.

Virgo energy is one of organization, attention to detail, new beginnings and making room for a fresh start. If you have a lot of Virgo in your chart, you might be one to collect stationary or hoard notebooks.

Virgo loves to see an organized plan with all the little details mapped out. This is a great time to get serious about your intentions for the moonth ahead!

Virgo energy has a “back to school” feel to it, where we want to take charge of our lives, prioritize our time and be more efficient.

Allow this New Moon in Virgo to give you the push you need to reevaluate your life, then reorganize it in the way that is needed so you can move forward.

Take charge of your life with this New Moon. Look within to see what is stopping you, then clear it out by the roots so it won’t keep coming back! Virgo energy is all about taking charge of your life.

“Ancient moon priestesses were called virgins. ‘Virgin’ meant not married, not belonging to a man - a woman who was ‘one-in-herself’. The very word derives from a Latin root meaning strength, force, skill; and was later applied to men: virle. Ishtar, Diana, Astarte, and Isis were all considered virgin, which did not refer to sexual chastity, but sexual independence. All great culture heroes of the past, mythic or historic, were said to be born of virgin mothers: Marduk, Gilgamesh, Buddha, Osiris, Dionysus, Genghis Khan, and even Jesus - they were all affirmed as sons of the Great Mother, of the Original One, their worldly power deriving from her. When the Hebrews used the word, and in the original Aramaic, it meant ‘maiden’ or ‘young woman’, with no connotations to sexual chastity. But later Christian translators could not conceive of the ‘Virgin Mary’ as a woman of independent sexuality; needless to say, they distorted the meaning into sexually pure, chaste, and never touched.”—Monica Sjoo

You might find yourself doing a deep clean of your house, or a deep cleanse of your aura. Meditate and visualise what your true desire is and ask to see what it is you need to clean up or clear our in order to allow in the new energy that best supports your growth.

Redefine the version of yourself that you are wanting to become, and then clear the room and take the needed steps to embody it.

When the moon is in Virgo, we tend to become critical and obsessed with the details of our lives. It’s a good time to analyze your mindset and where you are putting your energy. What have you overlooked? This New moon tells us to get our shit together, recognize the error of our ways an make commitment to ourselves to move forward in earnest.

This week, Venus trine Saturn on the 1st of September is going to open your heart to new commitments. Mercury trine Uranus helps you stay focused and determined to invite in new ideas and exciting circumstances.

Determination is at an all time high as the Sun and Mars meet to provide direction and purpose into your life. Follow their lead. Intuitively connect with what you know is good for you and cancel out distractions that will work to slow you down. Set intentions this week for clear direction and guidance in your life as you navigate and plan your next steps.

Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Virgo | Energy Reading Harvest Moon

The card pulled for this week is Waning Crescent: Transform, during the last phases of the moon cycle a recalibration takes place. The inward stillness allows all the shifts and energy that moved through you in this Moon cycle or phase of life to being to mold you into a new form. Do not pass over this vital step on your path! If things feel dark, you may be in the pupa stage, this is the stage butterflies and moths change their form. If many things are shifting, you may still be shedding old skin. Caterpillars do not rush the changes and they cannot skip or modify this step to meet their ego’s needs. Allow acceptance to give you patience and feel excitement for what is ahead! Change can be difficult to accept, especially if when it is not your choice. Try to find lessons in the changes you are confronted with and allow your intuition and your instincts to guide you.

The crystal companion for the week ahead is Apatite. Attuned to the Throat Chakra, apatite inspires creativity and self-expression. Attuned to the third-eye, apatite can improve your memory and concentration. It can also help you suppress you physical appetite by helping your mind focus on other things.

First Quarter Moon in Sagittarius

Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Virgo | Energy Reading Harvest Moon

The First Quarter Moon takes place on the 5th of September in the warm and sunny sign of Sagittarius opening us up for a week of opportunity and expansion.

Take the time and set the intention to connect with your inner guides and get in tune with your heightened intuition this week!

Mercury Opposite Neptune makes you highly sensitive to the energy in your environment. Pay attention to your feelings and honor them.

On the 9th of September, you will have the ability to act on what you know is right for you as Mercury trine Pluto gives you clarity of mind and helps you focus your will power to your desires. Mars trine Saturn will make you feel unstoppable this week on a mental level and physical level.

This aspect lasts for a week or more, this means you can channel it’s essense and power into the Full Moon next week as you set your intentions and go about your action plan.

Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Virgo | Energy Reading Harvest Moon

The card pulled for this phase is Waxing Crescent: Awareness. This card was pulled for us last month as well! It looks like there is a lot for us to be learning about ourselves and our environment right now! As the moon grows in the sky, your intuition is heightened and your sense of clarity is restored and invigorated. You might begin to receive more messages and see different pathways to choose from. This can become overwhelming at this point in the moon cycle.

As energy picks up, it shifts movements. Remain flexible at this time and open your awareness. You can begin by accepting what you can’t control and keep your focus on the things you can control. Sometimes this might only be a passing mood or moment. Observe your surroundings and your interactions. Have faith in the journey and believe in your vision. Stay open to new opportunities this week and learn to adapt when needed.

A great crystal companion for the week ahead is chrysocolla. Chrysocolla encourages loving communication with others, but especially yourself. This stone empowers both men and women to embrace their yin/feminine energy more. Chrysocolla is a goddess stone, connecting your heart to Mother Earth consciousness. A wonderful heart healer indeed, and a much needed friend this week!

Full Harvest Moon in Pisces

Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Virgo | Energy Reading Harvest Moon

The Full Harvest Moon takes place on the 13th of September in the watery and intuitive sign of Pisces.

The Harvest Moon is the Full Moon closest to the Autumn Equinox.

The atmosphere of the Earth reflecting the sun rays make Moon take on an orange glow like the colors of the fading leaves. The Days are beginning to shorten, and this Full Moon is bright enough to continue on the harvest even after darkness falls.

The Harvest Moon marks that Change is coming. It’s almost time to welcome in a new season.

Emotions tend to run high when the Moon is in a water sign, with Neptune in Pisces, conjunct the Moon, and opposite the Sun, we might experience some confusion over what it is we truly want this week. To ensure you aren’t walking blindly or falling into wishful thinking, plan ahead during the First Quarter phase. Use your action plan from the planner so you don’t end up becoming overwhelmed, or stuck with your head in the clouds this week.

Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Virgo | Energy Reading Harvest Moon

Be cautious to not get lost in a place of delusion, or rely on escapism this week. The Virgo energy we are experiencing right now is asking us to clean up our acts, get our act together…and keep it together.

Pisces energy this week is giving us the gentle push forward. Don’t mistake this small subtle push for emotional delusion and get lost in your own thoughts and delay your progress.

Be careful to not be too hard on yourself or others this week. The Sun in Virgo gives us a heightened critical eye towards ourselves and those closest to us, but wants us to see life with a new perspective. The Pisces energy heightens our intuition and increases our emotional receptivity and empathy towards others. Compassion and understanding will help you build stronger connections with those you love.

Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Virgo | Energy Reading Harvest Moon

This Full Moon holds potential for a reawakening of love and connection in your life. Mercury enters Libra on the 14th which will highlight the harmonious connections in your life and help you understand your own ways of communicating as well as how others are trying to connect with you. Venus enters Libra on the same day which helps us find balance in our love lives and personal relationships. We have the opportunity to practice both forgiveness and compassion this month and bring our relationships back into harmony.

This Harvest Moon is aiding you in restoring a much needed sense of balance. Balance of giving and receiving.

The Harvest Moon holds the energy of gratitude and appreciation. This Full Moon in Pisces paired with the Harvest Moon is asking you to not only harbor a sense of gratitude, but to be selfless and to serve others.

If you are feeling in a dark place personally, you will need to step outside of yourself and your own situation. When we serve others, we take time and attention off of our own problems and shift our focus towards compassion and love. This cultivates feelings of appreciation and gratitude within ourselves and others we serve.

If you are having a hard time moving forward for yourself, help someone else this week. It will give you time off from your problems, help heighten your perspective, while cultivating a sense of unconditional love.

Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Virgo | Energy Reading Harvest Moon

The Full Moon in Pisces connects you to your higher purpose and the divine. It provides an even deeper connection and look into your intuition. There will be a few moments when you may feel lost and confused, remember you have been through this before. Call upon your personal power instead of neglecting it. The answers lie within you.

The Harvest Moon asks us to reflect on our journey and find all the paths of gratitude. In the cycle of creation, this is the opportune time to give back to keep the abundant energy cycling through your life.

On the 18th of September, Saturn goes direct in Capricorn. You might feel a bit of a weight lift. If your work has felt slow these last few months, things will soon speed up for you as you stay disciplined and work towards your goal and intentions.

This Full Moon is a great time to pair your intentions with the colorable mandala from the Tune to the Moon Planners! Each month we feature a new mandala to be colored in and paired with your intuition! Mandalas unlock our subconscious and help increase our focus and intuition! Paired on a night like the Full Moon, the potential can be powerful!

Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Virgo | Energy Reading Harvest Moon
Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Virgo | Energy Reading Harvest Moon

The card pulled for this week is, Waxing Crescent, Support. As the moon begins to wane this week she is reminding you to reach out to your support system right now. Service has been a big theme this week… seek help if you need it, or offer it if you can give! In the moments of bleakness, connect to Gaia and your body. Feel the support beneath you and the unwavering solidarity of the Earth. Connect to your foundations of strong muscles and bones holding you upright. You will find that you are supported in every moment of your life. Your energy needs to be grounded this week. Take time to ground. Don’t be afraid to call in help of others or to delegate your tasks to friends or family. Lean on your support system in times of need.

Morganite would make a great crystal companion for the week ahead. Morganite is a Divine heart healer. It brings you compassion, helps you to forgive your past traumas and washes your whole aura in love. This love stone strengthens commitments and bonds… it is used in engagement rings and is a reminder of the divine love that is everyone’s birthright.

Last Quarter Moon in Gemini

Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Virgo | Energy Reading Harvest Moon

The moon wanes to last quarter in the sign of Gemini on the 21st of September calling our energy and intuition back in.

As the moon’s energy ebbs in the sky, we tend to feel the inward calling as well as the Summer Season comes to an end. This is a time to preserve and reserve your energy. A New Moon cycle and a new season is on it’s way. It’s time to prepare.

The Sun enters Libra on the 23rd which will highlight our awareness towards the harmony and balance of our relationships both romantic and personal.

Make boundaries and discuss compromises with your partner if you still haven’t found balance. Libra strives for peace, harmony and understanding.

Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Virgo | Energy Reading Harvest Moon

The card pulled for this week is Waning Crescent, Rest. Energy levels are lower as the moon fades from the sky. It is time to preserve your own energy and become more deliberate with your actions if you need to take right now. Slow down and tune into your body’s needs. Your body is most likely telling you to slow down!

Be aware of how much sleep and actual rest you are getting and what your body really needs right now. Give yourself permission to take a break. There are many forms of rest. You don’t have to sleep in order to refuel yourself. What is draining your energy right now and how can you resolve this?

A great crystal companion for the week ahead is apophyllite. This high vibrational stone opens your crown chakra to the angelic and spiritual realms. Use apophyllite if you wish to connect to your angels and guides. A great meditation stone, this crystal helps relieve stress and anxiety. Apophyllite can help restore your faith and connect you to your highest self and purpose.

Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Virgo | Energy Reading Harvest Moon

Have a happy New Moon in Virgo and a fruitful Virgo Season! Virgo is an Earth sign that supports new goals that support your physical body. Set the intention for a diet and physical lifestyle that supports your overall well-being for a simpler and stress free lifestyle.

Prepare to strive for harmony and balance in your relationships and personal lives… If things look bleak, serve others or allow others to serve or help you.

The Harvest Moon this month helps us shift our focus to gratitude and appreciation, the precursor to abundance! Be sure to check out the blog on the Full Moon for a Mabon Ritual!

Corn Moon Card Blessing Ceremony

New+Black+Moon+in+Leo+Moonthly+Energy+Reading+_+Corn+Moon.jpg

Happy Full Corn Moon, beauties!

We hope this moon cycle has been fruitful with blessings and abundance!

Today we will show you how to bless any of your tarot and oracle decks with this powerful card blessing ceremony. Cleansing and blessing your cards periodically can help release stagnant energies and old readings from the cards so you can begin anew. But blessing them as well can amplify and expand your readings. And cards can really help us call in certain energies and archetypes we want to work with in our life!

20190812_120938

It is best to do this ceremony under a Full Moon because your intuition is heightened and the Full moon’s light amplifies and illuminates energies. The Corn moon also amplifies the blessings you are bestowing and calling in with your cards!

This ceremony pairs perfectly with our Spirit de la Lune deck (the Prism edition is still available!), but you can also use any tarot or oracle deck you feel called to work with.

What you need:

  • Your chosen tarot or oracle deck

  • somewhere safe outside to lay down your cards

Optional items for elemental cleanse:

  • Air: Incense or herbal wand

  • Fire: A white or yellow candle (for the full corn moon)

  • Water: Moon water in a bowl or chalice (charged by the Corn Moon)

  • Earth: A bowl of salt and stones to cover each of your cards (they do not necessarily have to be gemstones! surrounding stones will do nicely!)

To prepare, place a glass bowl or jar out under the moonlight for at least 2 hours.

Within that two hour time frame take your chosen deck and and write an affirmation for each card. Write an affirmation based on the energy of the card and what you want to call in.

If you are using the Spirit de la Lune deck, we created one for you!

(There are also blank pages to use for any tarot or oracle deck!)

When you are ready, find a place outside under the moonlight where you can spread your cards out. The easiest way to reset and cleanse your deck is to put them all back in order.

Place the cards facing up toward the moonlight and form a circle with them while placing them in order. If you don’t know what order to put them in look at the guidebook for reference.

20190812_120702
20190812_121315

For our deck, I put the Moon phase card all together, then the Full Moondalas and then the Zodiac cards in the inner ring.

Perform the optional Elemental cleanse/blessing now. Read further down for details.

Leave your cards out under the moonlight until the next morning. To secure them down place stones on top of them. If you do not feel comfortable leaving them out all night, let them charge at least 2-3 hours under the moonlight.

20190812_115933

The next morning…

When it is time to gather your cards have take your affirmations ready. Going in order pick up your first card and stone and say aloud the affirmation the goes with it 3 times. Really claim it! You are calling in this energy into your deck and your life!

You can keep the stones you used and place them in a basket or in your garden to keep the energy near you.

Go around and picking up each card and stating each affirmation 3 times. Feel the magick of each affirmation settle into your body and fave fun!

We will be discontinuing 2019 Tune to the Moon Planners at the end of August! And we will be selling the extra stickers very soon! We are still working on the 2020 planner and trying to find a local printer still! That is a small feat in itself!


Optional Elemental Blessing & Cleanse

Pic of the elements

After your cards are all laid out how you like them get your items out for each element.

Starting with Air and in the direction of East. Always moving clockwise around the circle, take your incense or herbal wand, light it, and waft the smoke over your cards and say:

“By Air you are renewed.”

When you get back to where you are began, waft the smoke over your body and say, “By Air, I am renewed.”

Move to the South for Fire. Light your candle and slowly and carefully move around the circle clockwise hovering the candle over each card saying:

“By Fire you are purified.”

Once you get back to wear you started, hover each candle over your chakras moving downward and then back upward saying, “By Fire, I am purified.”

Move to the West for Water. Take your moon water and lightly flick water over the cards as you move clockwise saying:

“By Water, you are cleansed.”

When you get back to the west drink a little bit of the moon water and say, “By Water, I am cleansed.” and pour a little but onto the Earth.

Move to the North for Earth. With your bowl of salt, as you walk clockwise, sprinkle the salt around your cards and say:

“By Earth, you are protected.”

When you get back to the North, sprinkle some salt on your tongue and say, “By Earth, I am protected.” Then proceed to place each stone over your cards.


We hope this Blessing Card Ceremony brings in more abundance and blessings for you throughout the rest of the year!

Please share your cards and ceremonies with us! Happy Full Corn Moon!

New Black Moon in Leo Moonthly Energy Reading | Corn Moon

Happy New Moon!

This New Moon in Leo is also a Black SuperMoon!

 
New Black Moon in Leo Moonthly Energy Reading | Corn Moon
 

A black moon is similar to a blue moon… and like the blue moon, the definitions can get a little confusing. A black moon is typically seen as the fourth new moon in a season, (normally there are three) or when there are two new moons in one month, like what is happening this month!

This New Moon is also a Super Moon! This means that the moon is closer to the Earth than normal and the lunar effects on the water, tides and our emotions are amplified. Just because we can’t see her, doesn’t mean we won’t be feeling the effects of the supermoon.

Depending on your location and timezone, this New Moon could fall on August 1st for you, but it still holds the same energy of a Black New Moon, so don’t feel like you missed it.

Two New Moons in one month happens roughly every 3 years or so. They help us shift and breath through barriers that were holding us back. They offer us ability to use our new perspective to move forward. Almost like acting as a second chance for us to get up and claim our new path after such an intense month…

we will all be feeling a breath of fresh air after this New Moon!

This New Moon marks the end of the Summer Eclipse season, helping us to integrate the major karmic lessons of the month prior. This last month presented us with many opportunities to find lessons through the chaos, but thankfully much of that intense energy will settle as Mercury goes direct shortly after the New Moon.

We are also celebrating the Sabbat of Lammas around this time! This is the celebration of the first harvest and marks the another turn in the Wheel of the year.

In the second half of this month, Mars, Venus, the Sun and Mercury all enter Virgo. This will help us see things a bit more clearly in many areas of our lives.The shifts this month will help clear up some of that chaotic and dark energy that was stirred up in July. We will be able to move forward and claim our true power with clear intent.

In many ways, this New Moon will be helpling the dust settle around us so that we can step forward and fully integrate the lessons that came up during this Eclipse season. The cycle ahead looks to be a bit smoother than last months, but still holds potential to deliver the unexpected! One a month, using our planners and our decks, we look to the stars and moon phases to put together the Moonthly energy report!

New Black Moon in Leo Moonthly Energy Reading | Corn Moon

Grab a cup of iced coffee and read on to see what this New Black Moon has in store for you!


New Moon in Leo

New Black Moon in Leo Moonthly Energy Reading | Corn Moon

A New Moon is typically a time for reflection and introspection. Your heightened intuition is showing you the way towards starting something new.

This New Moon on the 31st of July is asking you to listen to your inner voice so you can begin to express it physically.

Grab your Tune to the Moon planner and try out the Leo spread for direction on where to focus your intention and energy right now if you are wondering where to turn.

New Black Moon in Leo Moonthly Energy Reading | Corn Moon

The fiery sign of Leo’s influence during this New Moon is helping us find our authentic self and voice so that we can rise to our full potential. If you’ve had your power taken from you recently, you are beginning to step into it more and more. Leo wants to help.

Leo is the Hero of the deck, and is a reminder that often times, the only one who truly knows what you want and need is you. The New Moon in Leo helps us recognize that we need to be our own hero right now. You are the hero of your story and it’s okay to ask yourself what kind of things you desire and need.

It is also important to affirm yourself and work to develop leadership skills, like self-confidence, and innovation right now. You might be asked to step up and lead others this week. Don’t shy away from the light.

New Black Moon in Leo Moonthly Energy Reading | Corn Moon

This New Moon can help us integrate many of the changes that were made during the last month so we can step into our true power.

The ruling planet of Leo is the Sun. RIght now we are being are asked to be bold, bright and to shine this week. You might even feel encouraged to take greater risks when the moon is in Leo depending on your birth chart.

This New Moon asks you to take leadership and be confident in yourself and your abilities when creating your intentions moving forward this month. A new path is working to unfold in ways that you can’t even imagine! Open yourself up to the possibilities and allow yourself to ask for what you want.

New Black Moon in Leo Moonthly Energy Reading | Corn Moon

The 1st of August is also Lammas or Lughnassadh the sabbat celebrating the first harvest. The word 'Lammas' is derived from 'loaf mass' showing us the importance of the harvest, honoring cycles, and the turn of the wheel. It is also this time that the veil between realms begins to thin.

Last year we had a ritual making corn dollies. This year the sabbat falls closer to the New Moon where we focus on intentions and divination.

It’s still a good idea to celebrate this sabbat! Head over to last years blog to read about making your own corn dolly! Or make some homemade bread topped with herbs from your garden. Setting up a set up an altar welcoming in the last months of summer is also a great way to honor this sabbat!

Mercury goes direct on the 2nd of August which will really help us all feel like a breath of fresh air is pouring in. This last retrograde caused some big lessons to show up in some loud ways. It’s important to integrate them during this time. Allow the past to fully be released. Journal back on the lessons you learned and the situations that came up and challenge yourself to move forward.

If people or things are surprisingly cut from or introduced into your life during this time, trust that it serves its own purpose!

Mercury has a way of showing us what isn’t working so that we can either fix it or end it… now that it is going direct, we will be able to see this from a higher perspective so we can make the changes that are needed. Keep this in mind as you write your intentions for this cycle ahead!

New Black Moon in Leo Moonthly Energy Reading | Corn Moon

The card pulled for this week is Waxing Gibbous, Manifest. You are close to the peak of your manifestation cycle and your goals are almost to completion. This card is a reminder that you already have everything within you in order to reach your goals and desires. You have the ability and resources within and around you to manifest your dreams right now.. What is truly stopping you from realizing this? What emotions are getting in the way right now? Belief in your magick and gifts is so vital right now. In order to manifest, you need to know that you are worthy of your desires. Know what it is you want and then feel worthy to have it.

First Quarter Moon in Scorpio

The First Quarter Moon takes place on August 7th in the sign of Scorpio. When the moon is waxing, we tend to feel our own energy begin to increase. We tend to feel ready for action and motivated to complete our tasks. Scorpio might be asking you to slow down and listen to your intuition, and to double check everything before you begin this week.

New Black Moon in Leo Moonthly Energy Reading | Corn Moon

Scorpio energy can present us with an emotionally difficult time if we aren’t careful or prepared. Our intuition is heightened, and emotions tend to be a little more powerful during a Scorpio moon, so it can be hard to read your intuition… but don’t let this stand in your way of accomplishing your goals this week!

Your spirits will begin to lift this week as the Sun trines Jupiter in Sagittarius. This will infuse your life with positivity and optimism. It feels like anything is possible or will at least have a positive outcome, so set your sights high.

Jupiter, the planet of abundance was retrograde since April 10th. It’s placement in Sagittarius shines a light of optimism into your life, especially your work or career path. This is also helping you see where you need to improve your understanding of others as well as the need to broaden your horizons when it comes to the emotions and history of others.. This is all about connecting you to your higher education and deepening your sense of spirituality.

Venus trine Jupiter will also help ensure good vibes coming your way. A positive and even lucky aspect, this is the week to try something that you’ve never done before.

Now direct Mercury enters Leo on the 11th of August which will help you express yourself in the way you may have been meaning to all along. Leo helps us find our voice and Mercury the planet of communication is helping us discover not only what we want to say, but how we want to say it. You may have been searching for the words or the way to express your heart for some time now, Mercury in Leo will help you make the connections so you can finally let it out.

Mercury in Leo reminds you how important it is to express your heart and your needs. Too often we ignore our own needs for the needs of others. Leo is here to remind you to focus on you! You don’t need to hold any aspect of yourself back as the universe is encouraging you to be authentic and honest with yourself and others. If you aren’t honest about what you want, how can the universe deliver?

On August 12th, Uranus goes retrograde until January 1st 2020. Uranus shows us the importance of financial security and freedom. This retrograde shows us the need to strive for financial freedom and self sufficiency. Uranus will be retrograde for the rest of the year, a slower planet has a more subtle effect on us, but you will still feel a call towards preparation and action. Listen to your intuition!

New Black Moon in Leo Moonthly Energy Reading | Corn Moon

The First Quarter Moon week will have you feeling good and ready for some movement. We have a lot of movement in the sky again this week, but luckily the movements and retrogrades are optimistic and key towards planning our futures. Visualize the best that can happen for you and you will soon see it realize!

New Black Moon in Leo Moonthly Energy Reading | Corn Moon

The card pulled for this week is Waning Gibbous, Guidance. If you’ve been searching for answers to your questions, the answers lie within. Reminder that the more you tune to the inward currents of your soul, the unnecessary fusses, trivial complains and vain societal beliefs will start to disappear from your path. The guidance you need is no longer driven by your ego now. If you are seeking guidance, ask your higher self and spirit guides to show you the way. The will reveal messages in the way your soul will understand. This might mean your will meet new teachers, or you may have more visual or memorable dreams. Look for the symbols in your dreams and everyday life. There are divine messages from your guides in the day-to-day life you keep looking for them. Remember, you might also be playing the guiding role in someone else’s life right now. Be sure to be leading from the higher self. Ask for help when you need it. Connect to your spirit guides… ask that you are puth into alignment with those you can learn from and those who can learn from you.

The crystal companion for this week is Rutilated Quartz. Rutilated quartz is very high energy! This stone connects you to your primal and spiritual intuition, merging the two so your instincts become sharp for any situation. Rutile is an amplifying stone along with Clear Quartz so they pack a powerhouse of energy and support to the wearer.


Full Corn Moon in Aquarius

New Black Moon in Leo Moonthly Energy Reading | Corn Moon

The warmth of the summer sun is shining down on the first harvest. Your bounty is at hand.

The seeds you have sowed and tended since the Seed Moon are now maturing. The Corn Moon invites you to receive the abundance you have been devoted to for so long.

Happy Full Corn Moon!

Abundance is yours if you are only open to receiving it and truly knowing you are worthy of it! There is a humbleness and a gratitude in the receiving of it. Spend time out in nature and you will witness the harvest and bounty all around you. This is the cycle of Gaia and the Moon.

New Black Moon in Leo Moonthly Energy Reading | Corn Moon

This Full Corn Moon in Aquarius takes place on the 15th of August. This is the moment of fruition, but it will not last forever. The cycle will wane again, so now is your chance to receive your abundance and relax into gratitude.

The Corn Moon and Lammas mark the turn of the Wheel of the Year when the veil between the worlds begins to thin… but there is still Summer abundance out there for you to enjoy before the cold months return.


Spend time outside this week enjoying the warm summer sun while it still shines. This Full Moon reminds us that the summer months will not last. Soak in the abundance available to you and make the most of it. This is the time of the first harvest, meaning a time when we are both productive and able to see the fruit of our hard work.

If you are focusing on lack in your life you will not be able to notice or appreciate the abundance around you. You will not be able to manifest your desires until you can shift your perspective. It’s easy to get stuck in a place of lack when that’s all you see, especially if you you are busy taking care of the needs of others, but this week, your concern is not what makes others happy, but what makes you happy! Watch your thoughts, follow your emotions, and remember that words are spells. Only speak out what you want to manifest.

The Full Moon can act as a trigger point to help you break into new territory here. You are able to tear down the walls that block you from your abundance with the new perspective this Full Moon offers.

Don’t forget to check back here for the Full Moon ritual with this in mind!

This Full Moon and the days around it might be packed with surprises.There is a need to expect the unexpected and go with the flow this week!

On the 18th of August, Mars enters Virgo which can really help us get our plans and goals into action. Mars in Virgo can help you create a system or a routine to help you knock off tasks on your to-do list. If you’ve had a hard time coming up with a plan, Virgo will help you focus on the details and make sense out of things that may have been confusing before.

On the 21st of August, Venus enters Virgo as well which will help us see things in a more practical way. This also helps you to become more in tune with the specific needs or your partner as well as yourself. This might shift some of the focus from yourself to the needs of others this week, but don’t overstep any boundaries you drew the week before! We will be given a shift in perspective during this time that can help you see your partners needs from a new approach.

This is a great week to focus on budgets, organization and productivity as Mars rules action and Venus rules the things that you value most.

New Black Moon in Leo Moonthly Energy Reading | Corn Moon

The card pulled for this week is Waxing Crescent, Awareness. This Full Moon is causing the energy to pick up right now. You might be receiving more messages, or you might see many different options ahead of you right now. Things are shifting right now. It’s important to remain flexible at this time and open your awareness. You can begin by accepting what you can and cannot control control. Acceptance is the first step, then your awareness will branch out and show you the paths and options ahead. Become aware of your personal energy flow and follow your intuition when it comes to making a decision. Be sure it supports your visions and desires. You won’t make fear based decisions if you can be in tune with your true desires.

The Crystal Companion for this week is Pyrite. Pyrite is often called “fool’s gold” but don’t let this fool you! Pyrite is a very powerful ally. It will help boost your confidence and increase your sense of abundance. Pyrite aligns your actions with success, so you can manifest the best outcomes and align yourself with success and prosperity.


Last Quarter Moon in Virgo

New Black Moon in Leo Moonthly Energy Reading | Corn Moon

On the 23rd of August, the Moon joins Mars and Venus in the sign of Virgo, the Healer.

After last week’s Full Moon, this next lunar week might begin to feel a little intense! The Sun, Moon, Mars and Venus are now in Virgo with Mercury joining them there at the end of the week.

Virgo isn’t an emotionally intense sign by any means, but there is a tendency to find fault or be overly critical. You might find this to be the case in several areas of your life right now! This can cause us to feel restless, impatient or even critical of ourselves and others.

Channel any anxiousness or restlessness into constructing routine that will help you organize your life and clear your mind this week.

Give your body high vibrational foods straight from Gaia. Eating the healthy bounty from mother earth will help shift the energy in your body and expand your mind and spirit.

Virgo is known as the Healer of the deck, it is of the Earth element, and reminds us to listen to our physical body! When the moon is in Virgo, our bodies are more susceptible to lower grade foods, drugs and alcohol. It is easier to overdose when the moon is in Virgo, so it is especially important to listen to your body’s needs this week.

On the 23rd of August, the Sun moves into the Sign of Virgo as well which will help you feel even more productive. This will help you focus on the details of your life, shining light into areas of your life that need the most attention. Remember to not be critical over yourself if you discover areas in need of improvement!

On the 29th of August, Mercury joins the others in Virgo. This improves your critical thinking skills, and helps you deliver them in a natural and easy way. It’s still important to be aware of how you come across to others this week. Virgo wants us to micromanage and help make all the little details work, but self sabotage via the inner critic could be a temptation this month. Go easy on yourself and others. Remember, they have an inner critic too!

It’s a great month to focus on yourself and the things in your life that need healing. This is a good month to get organized and to do the detail work you might have been avoiding. Set clear intention this week for a higher quality of living, healthy routine and better focus on organization and you will soon be feeling on top of the world.

New Black Moon in Leo Moonthly Energy Reading | Corn Moon

The card pulled for this week is Waning Gibbous, Surrender. The Moon holds sway over the currents of all the waters on earth. We are the same percentage of water as the earth is, meaning she also guides the currents of waters within our bodies. Together they weave the emotional pathways within. When you are in an emotionally stable place, the pathways are clear. Not every pathway will always run clear and smooth. In those times you must relax and surrender, trusting that the current will carry you through. There is a deep peace in surrender. The moon reminds us that everyone and everything ebbs and flows. All phases will run their course and the cycle of life will continue. Find peace and a deep inner knowing that the tides will shift in your favor again.

The Crystal Companion for this week is Green Jade. Jade is a powerful healing heart stone. Green jade open the heart chakra and emotional body to more joy and helps you truly embrace the present moment as a gift. Jade has long been known as a dream stone, bringing in love and nourishment while you sleep. It is also a wonderful abundance stone. The more your heart is open, the more you will be able to receive.

New Black Moon in Leo Moonthly Energy Reading | Corn Moon

This New Moon cycle holds so much optimism and opportunity. The New Moon in Leo wants to help you regain your voice and express your ideas in a healthy and even profitable way, while the Full Corn Moon wants you to step into your abundance fully by helping you break past any barriers that are holding you back. The planets shifting into Virgo towards the end of the month will help you shift your own perspective so you can focus on organizing your life and making the perfect routine that will help you realize your goals.

Don’t forget to set an intention for tonight’s New Moon. It’s also the perfect night for clearing and cleansing your crystals and decks under the window or with your herbal cleansing wand from last month’s ritual!

Happy Full Blessing Moon & Eclipse!

The Summer months are here and in full force over here in the Northern Hemisphere. This Full Moon in many ways, marks the last big planting time of the season. All that needed to sprout roots for the long months ahead is in the ground growing towards its full potential while we prepare and maintain for the coming harvest.

The Blessing Moon marks a time of both celebration and preparation!

Abundance can be found all around right now, and this Full Moon in Capricorn might have many of us wanting to play in the garden, placing our last minute plants into the Earth.

This current Lunar Eclipse holds potent energy for rebirth and transformation on many levels for us all…

It is very important to remember to cleanse and clear away any old or stagnant energy that might be blocking you from your growth! This might mean reorganizing or physically cleaning.

It’s also important for empaths and highly sensitive people to be clearing their energy and protecting their auras/shields right now!

Not only are we currently in the middle of the Eclipse season…but we are deep in the many big retrogrades of 2019.

A Full Blessing Moon Eclipse Ritual | Create Your Own Sacred Smudge wand

Many of these planets will be retrograde for several months, so the lessons they offer might be a bit more subtle than Mercury’s and the current Full Moon’s.

A retrograde is when a planet appears to be moving backwards… It really isn’t, but the retrograde does cause US to slow way down ourselves… the energy causes us to reevaluate, rethink, and replan.

Eclipses, like the current Full Moon we are experiencing shake up the current energy so that what isn’t working in our lives can come to the surface to be dealt with and healed.

With all this going on, we are currently welcoming in big changes and deep transformation into our lives that will have lasting impact.

A Full Blessing Moon Eclipse Ritual | Create Your Own Sacred Smudge wand

This Lunar Eclipse wants us integrating these karmic lessons on a soul level so that we can enter a new chapter in our lives free from the weights and baggage of the past.

In order to truly embrace this change we need to prepare ourselves and our environment for the upcoming transformation. Similar to weeding a garden… smudging or saging your home or space will clear way old energy (and even bacteria) that is stagnant, negative or could be inhibiting your growth.

Blessing your space and calling in the energy of transformation and change after you clear the energy is a great way to help set an intention for the changes ahead. Cleansing and blessing your space and self can make way for new and healthy growth, while also helping your garden flourish!

(This is a guest post by Rachael of Tree Talker Art and a co-creator of Spirit de la Lune!)

The act of burning herbs to clear negative energy, clean the air and offer intention or blessing has been around for many years and is practiced by various cultures.

Smudging is currently very popular in the west, and there are many debates on if white sage is considered endangered or not… While white sage is a sacred herb for many cultures, there are several other different healing herbs out there that can be burned for clearing and cleansing the energy from the air. In fact, you might already have many of these herbs in your garden already! If not, your local grocery store or nursery will have many of the herbs! (Read more about the history of smudging here! Here is a list of possible herbs and their meanings to use.)

Herbal Smudge Wand

You will need

Scissors

Garden shears

String

Fresh Herbs

Herbs used for today’s smudge wand: Lavender, russian sage, purple sage, yarrow, rosemary. (scroll to the bottom of this post for the spiritual meanings and uses.)

A Full Blessing Moon Eclipse Ritual | Create Your Own Sacred Smudge wand
  1. Gather- Gather your herbs and flowers. Before you pick the flowers and herbs, keep in mind your intention from the last new moon. Or write a new one if you need to. You can even base the color of your string and herb choice off your intention. Using garden shears or sharp scissors, cut and gather your herbs.

    Before cutting, ask the mother plant for permission and let her know what you plan to do with that branch. This will help remove any current living energy from the branch as well as help set and tune the intention of your smudge wand. Be sure to pick and prune at the right joints and nodules of the plant to promote future growth. Here is a good guide.

Full Blessing Moon Eclipse Smudge DIY Spirit de la Lune

2. Arrange - Arrange your flowers into a small bouquet.

Lay the biggest and tallest plant matter down first to frame and add structure to your bouquet. Next add a layer of medium length flowers. Then add the shorter flowers filling in any gaps. Move the faces of the flowers so they face outwards. You can always trim any leaves.

*It is a good idea to let the bouquet wilt in the sun for a few minutes to soften up the stems so they don’t snap when tying the wand.

3. Tie- Tie a knot at the bottom/base and wrap the string tightly around the bundle at a 45° angle until you get to the top, then repeat back down the bundle until you get back to the bottom. Secure with a knot at the bottom. Keep the string tight. Herbs lose a lot of their bulk when they dry out, so you may need to re tie your smudge stick, or go over it again later.

You can leave a little loop so you can hang and dry your smudge stick.

4. Dry- Hang your fresh herb bundle by an open window until it is dry enough to burn. Mine was ready in only a day or so! Until then, enjoy the fragrance of the fresh herbs through your window!

(Your herbs will lose some size/bulk when it’s dry, so you might need to re-tie it.

A Full Blessing Moon Eclipse Ritual | Create Your Own Sacred Smudge wand

5. Burn- Burn your wand with a container under it to catch any ashes that might fall. Never leave your herbal wand burning unattended! It’s best to stay mindful when working with fire and smoke.

Here is a list of the herbs I used and their properties… You can find more here!

Lavender - Used as an invitation for spirits. Lavender has long been used for cleansing. The Scent of lavender wards off evil spirits and safeguards one against evil.

Sage - Sage is a healing plant who’s smoke is used to bless, cleanse and heal. Sage is used to cleanse away the outside world and helps us enter a place of ritual or ceremony. There are many varieties of sage. Sage smoke is also antibacterial. It cleanses the air of negative debri on a physical and spiritual level.

A Full Blessing Moon Eclipse Ritual | Create Your Own Sacred Smudge wand

Yarrow - Burned to enhance courage and strengthen psychic powers. Aids in divination and connection with spirits. Used to increase and enhance love. Burned for purification, cleansing and blessings. Encourages peace and balance. Yarrow helps eliminate toxins from the body during the Smudging process.

Rosemary- is known to to be soothing and encourages a sense of peace within you and your environment. Rosemary removes negative energy from spaces. Used to restore balance to create a healing environment.

Happy Full Moon & Lunar Eclipse!

Entering the Eclipse Season | New Moon in Cancer Energy Report

Happy New Moon & Solar Eclipse!

Eclipse season is upon us once again!

While this one might feel intense… it has the power & potential to transform us thoroughly.

A Solar Eclipse always happens when the moon is New but this total Solar Eclipse in Cancer holds potential for an emotionally intense yet refreshing rebirth. During a total Solar Eclipse, the Moon has darkened the Sun completely, meaning you will likely feel your emotions stronger than on a typical New Moon.

Your emotional and intuitive energy will be stronger than any physical action you can take right now. This is to allow us to sit back and fully witness and feel the emotions we may have been avoiding so that we can step forward into our rebirth.

A New Moon’s influence typically lasts for four weeks, but the energetic lessons from an Eclipse last for about 6 months, which is why it is called an Eclipse Season. Expect patterns, lessons, and themes from the last 6 months might come up for you this cycle. It’s time to finally feel them in order to heal them.

Entering the Eclipse Season | New Moon in Cancer Energy Report

This Eclipse holds huge potential for rebirth and transformation on many levels. Mercury goes retrograde this month as well which will help us look at the way we are communicating our needs in a new way so we can be more constructive.

There are endless possibilities and opportunities ahead right now. Now is the time to walk through the threshold of the Eclipse.

All new moons hold potential for a new beginning, but this cycle in particular holds 2 eclipses and 5 planets in retrograde meaning the effects will be lasting and important.

Don’t let this potential go to waste! Each month for the New Moon, using our planners, decks and the stars as our guide, we put together the New Moon Energy Report to help us navigate the cycle ahead…

Entering the Eclipse Season | New Moon in Cancer Energy Report

Grab a cup of iced coffee, and scroll down to see what this New Moon cycle and Eclipse Season has in store for you!


New Moon in Cancer

Entering the Eclipse Season | New Moon in Cancer Energy Report
Entering the Eclipse Season | New Moon in Cancer Energy Report

A New Moon in Cancer can cause us to feel extra vulnerable and sensitive. Mood swings or other intense emotional shifts are prone to happen under this New Moon especially with the Solar Eclipse happening.

Try to understand what these shifts are trying to tell you.

A New Moon in Cancer might have you wanting to stay home curled under a blanket. You might find your focus on your family, the household or other domestic activities this week.

It’s important to find a way to distance yourself while still staying involved.

You might feel some of that introverted energy shift away quickly, as this Eclipse does hold some positive and optimistic qualities as well!

After the New Moon you might feel more like connecting with friends or being social. Sextile Uranus this week promises positive interactions, new friends and pleasant encounters.

This week is an excellent time to spend with friends and family and those closest to you, but expect new and exciting connections to follow. You are likely to meet a lot of new interesting people this week if you choose to get out there. Trust your intuition and go with the flow! You might instead feel called towards staying home and focusing on only those closest to you.

This Solar Eclipse might start off intense for many of us, but the potential rebirth that follows can make it all worth it. This Solar Eclipse is like a breeze of fresh air. It’s here to shake things up and make you see what is stagnant and blocked. This Eclipse acts as a doorway to change and transformation.

Entering the Eclipse Season | New Moon in Cancer Energy Report

The card pulled for this week is Blood Moon: Rebirth. A very fitting message for this week’s Solar Eclipse. Solar Eclipses act as thresholds towards change… They shake us and awaken us so that we can see what changes we need to make. A Solar Eclipse is like a doorway or threshold because we must choose to enter it. We can fully step into the rebirth that is before us, or we can ignore the emotions that keep coming up. Rebirth coming up for this week’s card pull reminds us to step forward and cross the threshold towards our rebirth. Tonight is a powerful night for making intentions. If you are having a hard time knowing where to start, ask yourself “Who do I want to be?” The
how” might not come to you this week, but you can still get the process of transformation started this week by simply stating or making an intention.


First Quarter in Libra

Entering the Eclipse Season | New Moon in Cancer Energy Report
Entering the Eclipse Season | New Moon in Cancer Energy Report

The First Quarter Moon takes place in the sign of Libra on the 9th of July, just days after Mercury goes Retrograde in Leo.

Libra energy has us wanting to remain in that social mood from the week before. We desire mutual understanding and love to share knowledge with like minded friends at this time. The Waxing Moon in Libra can put both our business and romantic relationships and partnerships into focus.

Be sure there is proper energy flow in your partnerships this week. Balance is a major theme of Libra, so maintaining equal and balanced energy flow in your relationships will ensure you don’t get walked on in the future. Balance is key!

Entering the Eclipse Season | New Moon in Cancer Energy Report

Mercury goes retrograde on the 7th of July in the sign of Leo.

This retrograde might test us… It’s important to remain mindful and patience with yourself and others during a Mercury retrograde. Impulse control and reckless behavior might come up this month. It’s important to slow yourself down.

We have 5 total planets retrograde right now... this is the Universe’s way of telling us to slow down and try to catch our breath.

Entering the Eclipse Season | New Moon in Cancer Energy Report

The card pulled for this week is Planting Moon, Preparation. A good reminder to slow down this week. With Mercury retrograde, you might not feel like there is much you can do towards achieving some of your goals. Some plans might be on the back burner right now as your reevaluate your approach. Go with the flow if you find yourself needing to restart a project. A time or preparation and evaluation is needed this week. There may have been something that was missed during the initial planning stages. It might be a blessing to go back to the drawing board! You might feel frustrated this week as action towards goals feels thwarted or slowed down. Slow yourself down as well and spend some more time in the preparation stages this week. You will thank yourself for the reevaluation!



Full Blessing Moon Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn

The Full Moon in Capricorn is another Eclipse! On the 16th of July, the Moon turns full and slightly red in the night sky. This is a partial eclipse, we might not be able to see the full effects, but we will be feeling them!

Entering the Eclipse Season | New Moon in Cancer Energy Report

The Blessing Moon is the first Full Moon of the Summer season.

A time of gratitude, contentment and both noticing and enjoying the abundance that is all around.

Entering the Eclipse Season | New Moon in Cancer Energy Report
Entering the Eclipse Season | New Moon in Cancer Energy Report

This Lunar Eclipse might not be a total Eclipse, but it is still a powerful one due to the conjunction to Pluto.

Watch out for impulsive behavior and intense emotional reactions. There may be power struggles that rise up within your personal relationships, or even in the world around you. Scandals and secrets might come to the surface right now. Past wounds might come back up in order to be healed.

Allow these wounds to come back up fully. Don’t push them away for the comfort of others or yourself. Heal them by feeling them fully. Understanding and support from others is out there.

Entering the Eclipse Season | New Moon in Cancer Energy Report

A Lunar Eclipse happens on a Full Moon and amplifies and enhances the lunar energy. The Sun is shining light on the Moon, meaning we are made extra aware of our emotions, relationships, and personal cycles.

This helps us look at things in an objective or impartial way so that we can make changes needed.

With a Lunar Eclipse, the darked moon acts as a reset, while the Solar Eclipse shows us what is still needing to be cleansed or cleared.

This Lunar Eclipse is an emotionally intense one due to the proximity of Pluto, the planet of darkness and death. Secrets may be revealed or bad habits might come to light.

Venus is opposite Saturn, which may bring tension to our romantic relationships, but Saturn sextile Neptune brings us hope. We are able to learn from this if we are willing to communicate and learn from it. With Mercury, it’s important to remember miscommunications might happen. Slow things down and have patience with yourself and others.

Don’t allow yourself to dwell in the chaos without seeing how you could be transformed by it.

Entering the Eclipse Season | New Moon in Cancer Energy Report

The card pulled for this month is Waxing Gibbous, Courage. It takes so much courage to fully sit with your emotions. This Lunar Eclipse might be pulling some intense emotions from you. Don’t run from them. It takes great amounts of courage to show up and fully feel the emotions you might have been hiding from. This Lunar Eclipse is working to integrate big changes from within. It takes courage to step through that doorway towards a new you. If you feel you are lacking courage for the future, look back over the last 6 months and see just how far you’ve come. This week might feel emotionally intense, courage and bravery will be needed in order to not dwell in the chaos that surrounds you.


Last Quarter in Taurus

Entering the Eclipse Season | New Moon in Cancer Energy Report

The Last Quarter Moon takes place in Aries and Taurus on July 24th. This is a great time to finish up any last minute projects you might be working on.

This intense Full Moon may have wiped out some of your emotional energy, but the moon Aries is there to inspire you with some new ideas and fresh energy to get things started, while Taurus helps us see results through diligent daily effort.

Entering the Eclipse Season | New Moon in Cancer Energy Report

Use this week to catch back up if you need to. Ride the wave of perseverance that comes with Taurus. Take the time you need to finish up any of the details you’ve been meaning to. Your sense of practicality and patience with others and yourself will increase this week.

Taurus energy is a great time to treat house plants and garden. You will also be nurtured while you are out spending time in nature. Spend time outdoors tending to your garden, (or tend to your houseplants) and you will notice how the mind naturally drifts to the “inner garden.” Sit here and see what weeding you may need to do in your own life in order to move forward and bloom the way you want to!

The energy this week feels a bit lighter for us as we are finally able to breath in that fresh air the eclipses brough in.

This week is a great time to finish up any last minute projects, but it’s not a good time to rush anything. Make sure you do things right, even if it takes some extra time.

Entering the Eclipse Season | New Moon in Cancer Energy Report

The card pulled for this week is Waxing Gibbous, Movement. It feels like a lot might be happening this week on many levels. With the Eclipses now behind us we are able to start seeing movement on both an energetic and physical level. Like waking from a nap, stretch and feel into your body. Move your body this week. Allow all of these changes to be fully integrated by keeping your body fluid and moving it often. Break up any energetic blockages with yoga or dance. It’s important to allow these changes to be integrated. Allow the energy to move through your body this week.


Entering the Eclipse Season | New Moon in Cancer Energy Report

Dandelion Divination & Tea Leaf Reading Ritual | Full Honey Moon in Sagittarius

Happy Full Honey Moon!

Tonight’s Full Moon shines bright in the expansive and optimistic sign of Sagittarius. Our days continue to grow longer and warmer here in the Northern Hemisphere as we get closer and closer to the Summer solstice happening later this week.

As the days get brighter and busier, it’s more important than ever to take the time to appreciate the sweeter things in life.

The Honey Moon is known by many names in various cultures… it’s sometimes referred to as the Strawberry Moon, Rose Moon, and the Mead Moon. The one thing that each of these names has in common… sweetness!

Spirit de la Lune Honey Moon in Sagittarius | Dandelion Divination Tea

This happy and bright Full Moon is reminding you to savor the sweetness that surrounds you right now. Look at how far you’ve come so far and celebrate!

This Full Moon in Sagittarius has us looking at the bigger picture with greater ease than ever before. While making detailed future plans might be hard right now, looking at your present situation or even your past under the light of Sagittarius can help you realize just how far you have come in the last year or even 6 months!

This Full Moon is also being influenced by expansive Jupiter and dreamy Neptune which brings us a heightened sense of abundance, brighter optimism and enhanced intuition for the rest of June.

During this Full Moon, our intuition and divination skills will be enhanced. Sagittarius ramps up our curiosity and has us wanting to explore our inner worlds with a fiery enthusiasm. Keep an open mind this week and get to know yourself and others better. There is a combination of wanting new adventures and connections, while also coming to know yourself better.


The Honey Moon is also associated with the Honey Bee! Humans and honey bees have had a long and close relationship where we rely on each other immensely!

Many of our plants and the foods that we eat depend on bees to pollinate them so that they can reproduce and create new life. Our dependence on our honey bee friends goes way back! The honey bee has long been known as messengers between worlds. It even used to be customary to inform household bees of big news or family deaths of the house.

Being messengers between the land of the dead and the land of the living, they are also thought to be great aids for divination and seeing beyond the veil. Using their honey in spell work and magick cooking adds a level of sweetness and grace to your intentions.

Dandelion Divination and Tea Leaf Reading  | Full Honey Moon in Sagittarius

For this Full Honey Moon we wanted to honor our enhanced intuition whiling working with honey bee magick for a Divination Tea Leaf Reading Ritual.

Tea leaf reading is also known as Tasseomancy. It originated in the middle east during the medieval period, but has spread and branched out quite a bit. There are now many versions of this divination and scrying method.

This is a technique that anyone can learn to do! Tea leaf reading involves seeing patterns and symbols in tea leaves, then interpreting the symbols… very similar to tarot and oracle card reading.

You just need your intuition, imagination & some tea!

You can use any loose leaf tea or herb you want to for this ritual, but we are using dandelion and mint for tonight’s tea leaf reading.

We chose to use dandelion because it’s a very simple and overlooked plant that is likely already in your yard… and it has psychic enhancing abilities!

Dandelion Divination and Tea Leaf Reading  | Full Honey Moon in Sagittarius

Many think this plant to be a weed… and while it CAN be invasive, the benefits of dandelions outweigh any annoyances. You can use every single part of the plant… and as long as no weed killer has been sprayed on it, it won’t do any damage to you or the bees!

Picking the flowers and leaves off dandelions will actually promote new growth for the plant... Taking an entire plant out of the ground (root and all) will leave space for another dandelion plant to grow in it’s place!

Utilizing these plants instead of spraying them with weed-killer or mowing over them is the best thing we can do for our plant and bee friends!

Dandelion Divination and Tea Leaf Reading  | Full Honey Moon in Sagittarius

Dandelion is associated with the element of air and the planet Mercury. It’s a great plant for enhancing intuition, divination and even channeling or communing with spirits. Dandelion can help strengthen your psychic abilities and enhance your intuition.

Not only is Dandelion a great plant for your soul, it’s a great plan for the body too! Dandelion can help boost your immune system, improves liver function and protect the liver. It can help with weight loss and aid in digestion, fights cancer, strengthens the kidney and bladder and the bones! It’s full of Vitamin A and has high amounts of fiber.

Don’t let this precious plant go to waste assuming it’s a just a weed!

(Dandelion tea has very few side effects. Certain individuals might experience an allergic reaction when drinking this tea or using dandelion. If you suffer from allergies to the live dandelion plant or other plants in the Asteraceae family, use caution! Dandelion root tea may also cause contraindications with certain medications—especially diuretics. It might be a good idea to ask your doctor before drinking herbal teas if you take any medications.)

Dandelion Flower Tea Recipe

Dandelion flowers make for a delicious warm or iced tea. Add in a little mint or lime and this sweet tangy tea will strengthen you from the inside out!

Dandelion Divination and Tea Leaf Reading  | Full Honey Moon in Sagittarius

Step 1: Harvest Your Dandelions

Gather about 10-20 dandelions from your garden. Choose dandelions in a place where you know hasn’t had any weed killers or pesticides sprayed on them. Be sure to thank Mother Earth and the Bees for providing us with this plant as you take what you need! Don’t worry about not leaving many flowers behind… picking the heads off will inspire the plants to grow new flowers!

Step 2: Wash and Rinse

Remove all the stems and leaves and place the yellow flowers in a strainer. Rinse well using cool water.

Step 3: Make Your Tea

In order to read tea leaves you will need some finer ground leaves or plant material to work with. Using your fingers, “unwrap” the yellow petals of about 5-6 dandelions and place in your cup. Shred up some mint leaves or any other herbs you feel like drinking and reading with. You can put larger flowers and leaves in your tea up as well.

Dandelion Divination and Tea Leaf Reading  | Full Honey Moon in Sagittarius

Step 4: Steep then Strain

Add 1 cup of hot or boiling water to your tea cup and let steep for 5 to 8 minutes.

This is a great time to come up with an intention or a question to use as your guide for your reading!

Once your tea is a nice yellow, strain away any large flowers and leaves. I chose to keep some petals and leaves in my tea so I could read them later.

You are free to strain your tea to your preference, but big flowers could make it hard to sip!


Dandelion Divination and Tea Leaf Reading  | Full Honey Moon in Sagittarius

Step 5: Sweeten and Sip

Sweeten your tea using local honey. Local honey from your neighborhood bees contains many enzymes, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that your body needs.. because the honey is made locally, this can even help prevent seasonal allergies from sneaking up on you!

Light a candle and intentionally sip your tea.

This is a great time to slow down and appreciate the sweeter things in life! The Honey Bee reminds us to not get too lost in the productivity of the day to day life.

Mindfully enjoy your tea. Use the candle as an anchor so you don’t mindlessly slip away or start working on something new while you enjoy your tea!

Dandelion Divination and Tea Leaf Reading  | Full Honey Moon in Sagittarius

Step 6 – Swirl and Drain

When the tea is all but gone and there is a small amount of liquid at the bottom of the cup, swirl the liquid around the cup a few times.

Many people prefer to swirl 3 times in a clockwise motion, but there are no true rules. Follow your intuition on what works best for you.

Leave your cup upside down on your saucer for a few moments so the rest of the tea can drain.

Reading The Leaves

Dandelion Divination and Tea Leaf Reading  | Full Honey Moon in Sagittarius

Pick up the cup and point the cup handle towards your right. This will establish top/bottom and past and future. Symbols which appear to the left of the handle relate to the past, and those on the right relate to the future.

Look carefully at the tea leaves for any shapes or symbols that might pop out at you. You might have to blur your eyes and see what basic shapes come out first.

Common symbols include hearts, birds, animals, cups, boxes, crosses, arrows, suns, moons and trees, but you could see anything! Your intuition and imagination will guide you. The tea leaves are just a tool to enhance your intuition even further.

Here is a list of symbols you might see and what they mean, and below are two reference images you can use… again use your intuition! If you don’t want to use a guide, you don’t have to!

Dandelion Divination and Tea Leaf Reading  | Full Honey Moon in Sagittarius

You don’t have to use a fancy tea reading tea cup either! A plain tea cup and saucer work perfectly for both beginners and professionals alike.

It’s all up to your intuition and imagination, and with this Full Honey Moon in Sagittarius, your intuition will be extra sharp for the next few days. Full Moon energy can be felt days before and after the lunar event, so be sure to take a walk sometimes this week and gather up your dandelions! The bees will thank you and aid you in the process of learning something new about yourself.

Happy Full Moon!

Spring is in full swing here in the Northern Hemisphere. Birds are chirping and flowers bloom while the bees are buzzing all around, collecting pollen for their honey. We are beginning to notice the growth blooming around us and how it is all connected.

Connection seems to be an important subject this month. The New Moon wants us to socialize and connect with others like us, and the Honey Moon reminds us of the Hive and to help others and be open to receiving help ourselves.

New Moon in Gemini

New Moon in Gemini 2019 Honey Moon Energy report

The New Moon in Gemini this week is going to open so many possibilities for us! The sign of Gemini is so versatile and curious… it’s a great time for starting anything new, especially something that that involves studies, research or anything else that gets your mind buzzing. it’s important to not start TOO many things right now!

But, expect communication to freely flow this week.

Mercury enters Cancer on the 4th shortly after the New Moon. This will improve your memory and enhance your craving for intellectual connections… emotions may predominate your choices this week so be sure to check in with your intuition and body before acting.

Avoid taking on too much or over committing yourself to too many projects this week. Gemini/Mercury loves to connect and be of help others so be careful to not self sacrifice and overwhelm yourself with the problems of others. It’s important to find the balance between helping others and being helped this week.

Your connection with others will be very important this week

Be open minded when it comes to setting your intentions for this month… You might not be able to do this alone. It’s perfectly okay to rely on others in order to get the things you need sometimes.

Ask your higher self and your guides to help put you in connection with the right people and places that will help you see the opportunities you need! Connections even from our past can open the right doors to future opportunities.

Venus enters Gemini on June 8th just before the First Quarter Moon which could cause us to face difficult or important decisions. Choice might be a big thing that comes up, so good communication within partnerships or anyone involved will be helpful during this time!

New Moon in Gemini 2019 Honey Moon Energy report

The card pulled for this week is Waxing Gibbous: Connect. With so much on the blog already about connecting with others, it truly feels like an important topic this week to see it pulled for the weekly card! This New Moon is a great time to set some strong intentions and brainstorm all the different ways you can achieve your goals, but don’t forget how important asking for help can be! Set intentions to be connected to the right people, or share your ideas with others and get input from those you trust. Ask for help if you need it and make sure there is mutual energy exchange. Connect with your friends and family this week… There just might be someone out there who is longing to hear from you!


First Quarter in Virgo

New Moon in Gemini 2019 Honey Moon Energy report

The First Quarter moon takes place in the sign of Virgo on June 9th. Virgo is the sign of the healer and motivates us towards cleansing and organizing both our mental and physical spaces so we can grow and heal properly.

When the Waxing Moon is in Virgo we feel motivated towards building routine and paying extra attention to the small details. The Waxing Moon energy in of itself motives us to want to plan and look ahead. Use this Virgo energy to make a detailed steps to take later this week.

Feelings of restlessness could be high this when Venus moves into the sign of Gemini. This will have you wanting to infuse intellectual stimulation into your interests, daily pursuits and even love life. The Sun opposes Jupiter this week which can cloud your judgement. The temptation to overindulge is high this week, so be careful with what you are saying “yes” to.

For those that usually restrict themselves from having fun or inviting in pleasure into their lives, this week is a good one to allow yourself to indulge! Stay in and do your favorite activities at home… or go out and enjoy your time with your friends if you feel called to it! Set the intention to invite in more pleasure and abundance and then take a step towards achieving it.

New Moon in Gemini 2019 Honey Moon Energy report

The card pulled for this phase is Waxing Gibbous: Focus. Where is your focus this week? Where has your mind naturally been drawn to? Remember,”where focus goes, energy flows.” The Waxing Moon motivates us and stokes our inner fire… but that fire needs to be tended and watched or it might smother itself out… or worse run wild and cause destruction! This week, while the moon is waxing towards Full, try to harness your focus! If you are having trouble finding an area of focus, sit back and observe yourself. Watch where you naturally focus your energy is this week and see how this invites in either chaos or growth.


Full Honey Moon in Capricorn

Intuition and inspiration are available to you daily but only if you know how to listen and be open to it.

The Full Moon on the 17th of June in Sagittarius and Capricorn will help you swing that door wide open to help you expand into new territories within yourself.

The Full Moon in Sagittarius has us feeling optimistic and open minded… we love to discuss and explore new ideas with like minded friends at this time. This energy is all about expansion. You might be feeling adventurous and ready to try new things… while planning is fun and essential while in Sagittarius, you might find it hard to get these plans in motion right now!

The Sun is opposing Sagittarius right now which might bring up even more conflict when it comes to getting these plans into action. Instead, enjoy the fun part of the planning process and worry about the details later.

The Moon spends about a day and a half in each sign and lunar energy can be felt for up to 3 days depending on your location, so many of you will feel some of this Full Honey Moon in Capricorn too. Capricorn is all about discipline and getting those plans into action. So be sure to enjoy and relish in that planning stage because the Moon in Capricorn is going to help you find the clarity and discipline you need to get things done.

New Moon in Gemini 2019 Honey Moon Energy report

The Full Honey Moon reminds us to connect to our tribe/hive. A honey bee is nothing without it’s Hive. This Full Moon with the Summer Solstice so near is the perfect time for gathering with your friends and family. The Full Moon is a time of illumination, but it is also a time of fulfillment and celebration.

Summer Solstice on June 21st!

The Sun enters Cancer on June 21st beginning the Season of Summer here on the Northern Hemisphere and Winter for the Southern Hemisphere.

As the Sun moves into Cancer, we feel a greater need to get in touch with ourselves. A need to focus on the home and feel safe and secure might become dominant for many. This a great time to tend to your garden and water your plants to ensure future growth. You might feel called towards staying home and focusing on yourself. Answer that call!

This week might not feel like the best for physical travel, but opportunity to travel within and expand yourself into new realms of possibility are opening up. On June 21st, Neptune goes retrograde in Pisces which can really cause us to go within to the dream world.

New Moon in Gemini 2019 Honey Moon Energy report

The card pulled for this phase is Waxing Crescent: Expansion. This Full Moon and Neptune retrograde happening this week can help expand us in many ways.The Full Moon illuminates the night sky this week and as she does, she also shines a light into our inner selves. Neptune’s influence on us causes us to feel flighty and somewhat lost in our daydreams. Allow yourself that time to imagine and daydream! Pay attention to your sleeping and waking dreams this week. This week holds many lessons and opportunities towards expansion, but many of these will be found within!


Last Quarter Moon in Aries

New Moon in Gemini 2019 Honey Moon Energy report

The Last Quarter takes place on the 25th of June in the fiery sign of Aries. Aries will help motivate you towards finishing up any last minute plans you might have this week.

A Waning Moon can often scatter our energy or motivation, but the Last Quarter Moon in Aries can inspire you to find that inner strength and will power to finish that action plan from the First Quarter Moon.

Be sure it’s detailed enough to follow!

It might seem hard to concentrate as the week continues… Neptune went retrograde on the 21st which can make life feel a little off… you might feel a bit out of touch with reality this week.

Those who are extra sensitive might find themselves mentally drifting and empaths will need to reinforce their protection shields or clear their energy often.

On June 27th, Mercury enters Leo which can cause some fiery communication… The need to express oneself and learn how to convey an idea to others will feel important. Leo can help you promote your ideas so you can share with them others around you, you might need to think outside the box but the creative answers will come to you!

This week, as Venus squares Neptune, you might find it difficult to trust the intentions of others. Focus on yourself this week and what you can creatively express. Avoid getting distracted by people who are not on the same wavelength as you.

Your creativity might really be highlighted this week… so don’t be afraid to unleash it and look for the messages that your higher self wants to reveal to you.

New Moon in Gemini 2019 Honey Moon Energy report

The card pulled for this week is Waning Gibbous: Guidance. There are messages from Spirit all around you. Your guides will always communicate and deliver lessons in a way that you are able to understand. As the Moon wanes in the sky this week you will begin to feel drawn inward as your intuition begins to speak to you. Look for the lessons your higher self may have for you. Be open to how you share and receive guidance this week… Remember that it’s okay to ask for help from others. Reach out to those in your circle, you yourself might be an unknowing teacher to others this week.

New Moon in Gemini 2019 Honey Moon Energy report

Spring is all around for us. This Honey Moon promises to be a productive one where we can expand out connection with ourselves and with others.

Our connection with others is always important, so don’t forget to reach out to your hive. The Earth’s ecosystem relies on each other in order to bloom and grow. We too must rely on others to ensure our healthy growth.

The days are getting longer and warmer as we head towards the Summer Solstice. We have more energy than ever to pursue our dreams and goals this month.
