New Moon in Aries, April 15th 2018

new moon focus.jpeg

We have a refreshing New Moon ahead of us because Mercury goes Direct! Bringing in a new wave of energy, vitality, and a breath of fresh air! The new moon is in Aries once again giving us a redo, if you will! If you feel you couldn't stay on track with your intentions last cycle because of the retrograde now is your chance to make up for it.

Depending on your time zone, you may experience the new moon on Sunday April 15th or early Monday April 16th. We always encourage everyone to have a moon app on their phone with your exact location to be the most accurate for you!

The card pulled for this New Moon is Focus! With the directness and winds of Mercury igniting the fire of Aries, now is the time to hone in on what you truly desire and want for this cycle. Don't let your energy become scattered, but stay sharp and focus on your goals. This would be a great time to do some candle magic! Write your intention on a candle and then light this candle meditating and invoking the energy you wish to create and manifest. Keep your gaze soft on the flame and let it take you to a different Realm. Let the candle burn all the way down, but not unattended. Fire demands devotion, much like your goals. You may be surprised by the messages you'll receive if you try this!

First Quarter Moon in Cancer/Leo, April 22nd 2018

The First Quarter Moon will fall in Cancer or Leo depending on your location and time zone once again. This cusp energy of water and fire is very potent this moon cycle. The combination of water and fire can be very mystical and powerful, but it can also cause adrenal burnout, aggression, and bring unresolved issues to the surface. Tend to your water body AKA your emotions, and tend to your fire body AKA your passions and spirit. First Quarter Moons are a great time to check in with yourself, so make any necessary adjustments you need to find your own unique balance.

The card pulled for this moon phase is the Seed Moon: New Growth. Once again we are being reminded of the seeds and intentions we have planted, but maybe they have not have had enough time or nourishment to have sprouted yet. Now is the opportunity to devote your energy to them when you couldn't during the retrograde. Things are shifting and falling more into alignment this time around, so take the opportunity to make a decisive action towards your goals and desires. What is your next step?

Full Moon in Scorpio April 29th 2018

A Scorpio Full Moon can be potent with magic and power! You may feel more sensual and in your body, fully embodying your emotions and your passions, since Scorpio is ruled by fiery Mars in traditional astrology. Passions and emotions can be powerful allies working together towards your desires. This would be a perfect time to do some sort of spell work embracing your magic, embracing your desires, and working with your power! You are a powerful being and the Scorpio Full Moon wants you to remember that!

The card pulled for this Full Moon is the Harvest Moon: Gratitude. In the Southern Hemisphere, it is Autumn and this is a time of releasing and letting go and remember what has brought us here to this very moment. No matter what season, gratitude moves us all. Remember when you do spell work, though we are asking the elements, our higher selves, and the Universe to help us move towards our desires, we must remember to do so with respect and humbleness and gratitude. Create an offering from your heart. And offering is an act of love and devotion and balances the energy of giving and receiving. Remember to be grateful for what you have in your life already, and act from this place of thankfulness.

Last Quarter Moon in Aquarius, May 7th 2018

As the moon cycle begins to wane, Aquarius energy can lend us a new perspective as things are shifting and changing and we must learn to adapt to these changes. What did you learn about your desires this moon cycle? What did you learn about your magic and power? Is your heart open? How has gratitude shaped your heart? Reflect and ponder on these questions as the Flower Moon cycle comes to an end.

The card pulled for the Last Quarter is Dream. The Visionary blesses us with dreams of hope and inspiration, and gives us courage to act upon these dreams. Pay close attention to the dreams you have as as moon cycle wanes... What patterns are coming up for you? Where are your dreams guiding you next? Remember to keep an open mind and keep your heart open to new possibilities. For these dreams will be the seeds of the next moon cycle.

We hope this Flower Moon cycle brings you lots of love abundance and draws you closer to your dreams and desires. We are so grateful for you, our Moontribe for always supporting our work here and following the moon and all her phases. They are all beautiful and unique in their own ways!

Go forth and bloom!

Blessed be Moon Tribe!

2017 Flower Moon Cycle Energy Reading

Happy New Moon in Taurus!

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

The power of the Flower Moon is potent and enchanting!

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


4/26/17 New Moon in Taurus

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

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

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

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


5/3/2017 First Quarter Moon in Leo

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

Give yourself permission to bloom

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


5/10/2017 Full Moon in Scorpio

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

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

Are your boundaries supportive or restrictive?

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


5/18/2017 Last Quarter in Aquarius

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

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

Let ease and rejuvenation into your life


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

Flower Moon: Blooming Ceremony

Happy Full Flower Moon beauties!

It is time to witness and experience the luminous shining energy that is the Full Moon once again! Lady Luna is blooming and we have the opportunity to do the same!

Bloom Ceremony - Spirit de la lune

It is time to step into your fullness and embody your bloom.

And by bloom, we mean the beauty and magic that is unique to you. When you embody your bloom completely, like the flower, you magnetically draw in what is yours.

Flower Moondala - Spirit de la lune

Surround yourself with flowers to learn from the deep wisdom of the flora blossoming all around you. Spend time in your garden, water your flowers and plants with moon water, and listen to their unique messages. If you do not have a garden, walk around your neighborhood or park and explore the flora around you. Of course you can always buy flowers and put them in vases all around your home or altar. Make sure you gather some flowers for your ceremony later tonight! 

Blooming Ceremony

What you need: 

  • Flower petals: all colors, shapes, and sizes - whatever you are drawn to!

  • Clear crystal or silver bowl

  • Spring water

  • Your Spirit de la Lune deck and specifically the Flower Moondala

  • A marker (to write on the petals)

  • Your journal and pen

Begin by sitting at your altar and journal about what is blooming in your life. Write your list of blessings and blooming; allow your heart to open and flow in this current of gratitude. From the current write about what you would like to bloom in your life and really describe it with all your senses... Make this a sensory experience: if you allowed these certain things to blossom and bloom what would it look like, feel like, smell like, taste like, sound like? This may seem silly but you will be inviting your whole body and all your cells into this experience and you will begin to shift your energy to receive and draw in this energy you desire. 

Now that you have your lists of what is blooming and what you want to bloom, begin to take off the petals of each flower you chose and write down your keywords and lists on the petals... Try to narrow it down to one word on each petal. It's okay if you don't have enough words for all the petals! 

Flower Moondala - Spirit de la Lune

Now the fun begins! Go outside under the moonlight and assemble a beautiful flower mandala out of the petals. Let your intuition and creativity guide you. You can put the Flower Moondala card in the center too. Let this creative process bring you into a meditative state... Take your time and enjoy this process.

You are actively creating and attracting your desires by doing so!  

Once your Flower Moon Mandala is created take your bowl of spring water and put it at the center of the mandala on top of the Flower Moondala card. You can even add petals to the water (be sure they are safe petals because you will be drinking some of this moon water! Rose petals are always a good choice!). You can add crystals to the Moondala too, whatever you want to charge under the moonlight! 

Be sure to try the Flower Moon Spread in the Spirit de la lune guidebook for further insight into your bloom, desires, and your ceremony! Be sure to tag #SpiritdelaLune on instagram so we can see and feature your deck! We absolutely love seeing these cards in action! We are also still moving through the #Tunetothemoon challenge on Instagram there is still time to join in!

Leave these all out to charge under the moonlight and enjoy the rest of your evening. When the sun rises go outside to gather the petals and collect the moon water. If the wind scattered some petals, do not fret! Your desires are being moved through the wind! Drink some of the Flower Moon water to take it into your cells and body. You can save the rest to water your garden, use in baths, drink, or even put a drop or two into your fave ore perfumes and skincare products to keep absorbing this magick and beauty!

You can keep the rest of your petals and store them in a dry dark place to let them dry for the next lunation. You can then use the dried petals as loose incense on the next Full Moon to complete this blooming magick. If you do not want to save them you can scatter these petals in your garden or out in nature and let the wind and Gaia do the rest. Listen to your intuition and do what feels best!
