Happy Full Supermoon & Lunar Eclipse!
What a beautiful & powerful way to kick off the New Year!
A Super Moon is what happens when the moon is closer to the earth than normal making her appear larger in the sky. This event can intensify our emotions, enhance our intuition, and can even bring about unexpected news or events.
This Supermoon is also a Lunar Eclipse! This will intensify our emotions even more while bringing us new revelations and insight. Lunar Eclipses also have the ability to bring us life altering news, so expect the unexpected with this one!
A Lunar Eclipse is when the Sun is opposite the Moon, this lets us take a look into our emotions and close relationships in a different way, with fresh eyes and new perspective. You might feel overly aware of the imbalances in your life on top of your enhanced sensitivity.The Moon is also square Uranus, which can cause moodiness, impatience and impulsive reactions.
Allow the Lunar Eclipse to help you stay objective so you can keep your mind set towards growth and progress.
This is also the Sage Moon according to the Spirit de la Lune Deck and Planner. Each Full Moons has varying names according to different cultures throughout history. This month, according to our system marks this as the Sage Moon. A time of cleansing and making way for the potential growth that lies ahead.
Remember that major shifts are taking place... this can open you up for so much growth ahead. Trust this Divine Cosmic Energy and allow it to transform you. Get proper rest and don’t forget to stay hydrated!
You might be feeling extra sensitive during this time. Check in with yourself often. Be sure you aren’t picking up the emotions of others! Burning incense or sage can be a great way of cleansing yourself. (Even science says it has benefits of killing bacteria in your home!)
For tonight’s ritual, we are creating intention incense! Because this Full Moon takes place in both Leo and Cancer depending on locations and time zones, we are also including a meditation for both!
Lunar Eclipse Intention Incense
Honor the Sage Moon Lunar Eclipse by creating your own intention incense to invoke the energies you want in your life.
You will need:
Whole bay leaves… as many as you need
Herbs associated with the current sign or whatever aligns with your intentions
Mortar & Pestle (If you don’t have a mortar and pestle, you can use the bottom of a coffee mug over a wooden cutting board, or use ziplock back and a rolling pin!)
Cauldron or a fireproof container for burning.
Herbs for Cancer:
Herbs for Leo:
Bay leaves are known as ‘Witch’s Note Paper’ and have long been used in spell work!
In ancient times, bay leaves were even eaten by the Oracles of Delphi before giving divination.
Bay leaves are used to enhance psychic powers strengthen intentions and give protection to the user.
You can use almost any type of pen to write your intentions on the leaves too. (Add extra power to your intentions by using a blessed or moon-lit charged pen!)
Using your mortar & pestle, grind up your bay leaves. Keep your intentions and goals in mind as you grind your herbs and create your incense.
If you need to grind your other herbs, empty the bay leaves out first. Yes you’ll be mixing the herbs together, but it will grind easier with less in the bowl.
Mix the bay leaves with the other herbs of your choice and store in an airtight jar.
(Remember you can use a zip-lock bag and rolling pin for this if you don’t have a mortar & pestle)
During the Eclipse, burn them on your altar in a cauldron or other fire-safe container.
You can use a charcoal tablet to help it burn longer. (Here’s a great guide!)
Watch the smoke to drift towards the heavens carrying your intentions and wishes.
Cleanse your energy in the smoke. Clear and purify your decks and crystals with it. Allow it to burn on your altar to charge your intention and focus the energies you are wanting to bring into your life.
While the incense burns and does it’s work, try one of these visualizations under the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse!
Cancer Energy- The Three Cauldrons
In the Celtic tradition, the Three Cauldrons are sacred containers within your body that hold the energies of magick, spiritual wisdom and creation. The Three Cauldrons can be loosely related to the Third-Eye, Heart, and Sacral Chakras, but they are not the exact same energies. They are also linked with the Earth, Sea, and Sky.
Close your eyes and visualize a beautiful cauldron within your Third-eye. What does this cauldron look like? Imagine the Lunar Eclipse energy pouring into this cauldron... What kind of magick begins to brew? Let this cauldron bubble over and flow into the next cauldron within your heart space. What does this cauldron look like? What emotions surface for you? Let the energy keep brewing and flowing through you. When your cauldron begins to bubble over again, let the energy pour into the third cauldron within your pelvic bowl. What does this cauldron look like? And what does your magickal brew look like now? Connect and feel all three cauldrons working together. They are alchemizing your intentions and holding space for your magick to flow. Stay in this space for as long as you like!
Leo Energy - Crown Visualization
Invoke the energy of the Empress (2019 is the year of the Empress according to Tarot), and the noble, royal energy of the Leo by closing your eyes and focusing on your Crown Chakra.
Imagine the the beautiful Full Moon shining above you and pouring her Moonlight into your Crown. As your Crown Chakra fills with Moonlight, you begin to feel the weight of a crown on your head and a beautiful crown forms across your brow.
What does your Crown look like? This Crown connects you to the Divine, your guides, and helps you act from your Higher Self. How does it feel to wear this crown? What messages do you receive from the Divine?
After you are done with your visualizations and ceremony, you can bury the ashes of the incense or put them in a flowing stream of water. If you’d like to save them, you can use the ash for black salt.
Happy Super Full Moon and Eclipse!
Don’t forget to charge your decks and crystals under this powerful moon!
..before we go… we have exciting news!!
The planners are now shipping!
We are so excited to announce that the planners are now in our hands and are no longer in ‘preorders’!
This planner has been a culmination of hard work, a lot of love, obstacles, and frustration... The whole spectrum of emotions have been felt!
Thank you all so much for your love, support, and patience, as we learn to navigate new-to-us production, shipping and manufacturing. It is not easy being a two-woman show across multiple states, but somehow Rachael and I make it work! If anything, we have learned so much from this creation.
To be completely honest, we are still a little hesitant to make the 2020 planner, there were so many delays we could not have foreseen, but moving forward we will definitely do everything we can to ensure everything goes smoothly and timely.
If we make the 2020 planner, we will start creating it way sooner!
Marissa will not be pregnant the majority of the year so that will help.
We will not rely on others to make deadlines they cannot keep.
And finding a local printer is priority... Shipping is cray!
All that being said, it is amazing to see your own creations come to life and manifest physically! You can create anything you put your mind to! Dedication, focus, support, and passion build the foundation for manifesting.
We are so excited to see these go out into the world finally and we hope you love them as much as we do! 💖
