Corn Moon Ceremony: Dream Grid Activation

Happy Full Corn Moon!

We are approaching a beautiful and interesting Full Moon! The moon is actually on the cusp of Aquarius and Pisces! Depending on your time zone some people will experience an Aquarius Full Moon and others will be experiencing a Pisces Full Moon! Either way this is a Full Moon filled with romantic notions and high ideals, and how we can do our part for humanity to create and actualize the new dreams we are needing for this planet. There is a paradigm shift happening and humanity and the planet is experiencing a lot of chaos in the midst of this change. The Corn Moon energy is that of abundance and magnetizing nourishment and prosperity.

On top of this, it is an almost lunar eclipse! The Earth's shadow actually does not cross over the Full Moon, but it does come really close this cycle! This means the Sun, Moon and Earth are almost precisely aligned with each other. Each of us is on a precipice, or a cusp of actualization, but we need more clarity.

With the Leo Sun and the Pisces/Aquarius-almost-Lunar-Eclipse, we are all in a powerful position to alter our communities in a powerful and magical way. By making your realm a more beautiful place the Leo within you will be mighty proud of that!

With this beautiful portal beckoning us to be our best selves - to embody our highest selves for the highest good of all, how do we know what to do? Many of us will feel the edge of the cliff and freeze. Maybe the ego will tell you to play it safe, or stay small as not to cause ripples. To hell with that!

Let's make waves into this cosmic ocean we are all swimming in!

Reach into the web of the collective conscious and ask the universe for a dream to guide you. We will do this by creating a crystal dream grid. So gather your crystals and activate your dreams! This ceremony below will tap into the vast clarity of Aquarius and the intuitive dreams of Pisces so we can all find our purpose for the new world paradigms we are beginning to attract and move into.

Dream Grid - Spirit de la Lune

Create a crystal grid using Amethyst, Clear Quartz points, and Rose Quartz. Amethyst activates dreams and the Third-eye, Clear quartz records and magnifies intentions, and Rose Quartz keeps you connected to love. These 3 crystals are easy to come by, but if you have a lot more crystals, tap into your intuition and use the crystals who speak to you! I also added Larimar for the High Heart Chakra (between the Throat and Heart Chakras) to help tap into the cosmic collective. 

We love to include our cards in our crystal grids to invoke the energy of the Moondalas. So I put both Aquarius and Pisces in the grid to represent the cusp and honor their energies. I connected them with crystals to the center Full moon card so their energies can work together. Putting the grid together is half the fun and is a mediation in itself. Spend time playing with the crystals and asking them where they want to be placed.

If you do not have a lot to crystals to work with that is okay! Use what you have and play with different variations until you feel that the crystal grid is ready. Your crystals will let you know!

When you finish your grid, lay them out under the moonlight for at least 2 hours. It is better to have them set out on a tray so you can move them back into the house. While they are charging, sit out under the moonlight and whisper your dreams to Lady Luna... think about your community and on a global scale.

What dreams do you want to moonifest for humanity?

Before you bring your grid back in, it is now time to activate it under the moonlight! Using a wand, crystal point, or even your dominant index finger begin to connect all the crystals together starting with the center of your grid. Think of it like connect-the-dots! Move around the grid in a clockwise motion, always bringing the energy back to the center stone. Do this a couple of times (I like to go around in 3's) to find the easiest flow for the energy to move through. 

Begin to imagine a beautiful silver thread of moonlight moving through your crown chakra down to your heart, and flowing into your hand directing the energy into the crystals. See this web of light weaving through all the crystals as you keep moving around the grid.

When you feel in tuned with the energy and focused enough begin to say these words or something similar, while weaving the crystal grid:

Weaver of Dreams, hear my call

Share our visions for the highest good of all

As I weave this web to hold the dreams from above

As I sleep, let me swim in the cosmic sea of love.

Water Bearer Moon,

I bask in your glow,

Pour the dust of the Moon & Stars

Into my heart and mind,

So my new visions can grow!

As I dream tonight,

Lady Moon, with your light, show me the purpose

For my soul to take flight!

Bring the grid back into your home and preferably put it under your bed or near your bed. Keep a dream journal near by you and as you lay down to sleep ask for a vision of clarity so your new path can be revealed. You can keep asking for this new vision through the end of this moon cycle and pay close attention to your dreams for the next two weeks.

If you want further insight into your dreams you can use the Spirit de la Lune cards and spreads in the guidebook! We hope you enjoy this Full Moon dream grid and let us know what dreams you have!

What are the dreams you are moonifesting?

Aries: Gems for the Inspirer

Welcome to the first post of the Zodiac Gems series! In this monthly series we will explore crystal companions for your Sun or Moon sign. If you do not know your Moon sign you can find out here, just be sure to know your time of birth! That is very important because the Moon shifts so quickly from one sign to the next! If you have  moon app (We love Deluxe Moon) you can go back all the way to your birthday and see what Moon sign and the Moon phase you were born under!

Sun vs. Moon Sign?

In astrology the central sign is our Sun Sign. All the planets revolve around the Sun, so this is the most influencing sign in the birth chart - that is why almost everyone knows their sun sign by heart. The Sun shines light, it is active, it influences and affects its surroundings, so the Sun sign is the outward expression of our lives. It is what we show people. The more aligned we are to our Sun sign and are actively pursuing our gifts and natural talents, the more we will truly shine and inspire others! Our Sun signs illuminate our path and destiny.

The Moon sign is equally important and is less known. The Moon is the closes celestial being to the planet and affects all the waters of Gaia. We are made of 50-75% water, much like the ocean, so the Moon controls our inner tides as well. Water is linked to the emotional realm, so our Moon sign reveals how we express and internalize our emotions - what feels safe for us, how we express our emotions to others and ourselves, and where we go to hide when life gets a little rough. The Moon reflects light, so our Moon sign shows us how we integrate and reflect upon the energies that move through us daily. The Moon sign is our inner-world and the Sun sign is our outer-world. Both are needed and equal to live as a full-dimensional being. 

Let's begin with Aries! 

"Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and initiates the Spring season. The ram is ruled by Mars and this fiery sign inspires and ignites life all around them."
Spirit de la Lune Guidebook

It takes fire to burn away debris and blaze a new path. That is the powerful energy Aries carries with them. Aries-born are courageous, daring, energizing, and inspiring! They are not afraid to butt heads when needed or when their ego gets in the way. 

If Aries is your...

Sun sign: An Aries Sun is always on the go. They have 10 projects going at once and luckily with their willpower they will complete them all if it is the last thing they do! They are naturally motivated individuals and make wonderful entrepreneurs forging new paths. Since Aries is the first sign, it is related to the infancy years of development, so they are very concerned about themselves and their immediate surroundings - they may forget to collaborate and work with others simply because they naturally want to do everything themselves!  

Moon sign: An Aries Moon is impulsive, creative, and enthusiastic. It is hard for an Aries Moon to hide their emotions - everything is always out on the table! There is a genuine honesty and sincerity with an Aries Moon. There are no hidden agendas, just pure in-the-moment emotion. There is an endearing innocence about them. The inner-child really comes out to play in an Aries Moon, but can also be prone to tantrums, selfishness, and become volatile if something is not going their way! Luckily they burn through these emotions quickly, holding no grudges, and move on in the blink-of-an-eye! 

Crystal Companions for Aries

Aries energy resonates with the first three chakras: Root, Sacral, and Solar because those are closely linked to the body and the natural primal instincts we have for surviving, creating, moving, and thriving - Aries feel most comfortable in these chakras! Working with the stones below can help Aries navigate the powerful energy always moving through them. Carry or wear these stones with you while the Moon is in Aries or anytime you need more energy, motivation, or courage!

Fire Opal: This gem blazes new paths and sparks joy and enthusiasm. A sense of adventure is awakened when you wear this stone.

Tiger's Eye: This stone activates courage and willpower - a perfect pick me up for when you are losing momentum or feeling disheartened.

Garnet: This gem really connects you to your physical body and vitality. Messages from your body will be more clear and you will be able to maintain your energy more consistently throughout the day.

Carnelian: This Sacral stone connects you to the powerful creative forces within. Inspiration, energy, and movement are bound to happen when you carry this stone with you. 

Hematite: In the Roman days, warriors would rub hematite on them to invoke Mars (the God and ruling planet of Aries) to protect them in battle. This is a very protective and grounding stone for Aries individuals.

Septarian: This stone is also known as the Dragon stone, and the energy of Dragons connects you to the passions of your heart and how you spread your warmth and fire through the land.

Brecciated Jasper: This grounding Root stone looks like lava or burning embers! This stone can help ignite your desires and help build a foundation for your soul desires to thrive!

Star cluster Aragonite: This gem is like a warm campfire. It can soothe anger and help dissolve resentment in your heart so your light can shine brighter! 

Gems to balance out Aries

Most Aries gems relate to the lower chakras, so think higher: Heart, Throat, Third-eye. Higher and lower have nothing to do with the power or quality of the chakras, just so you know. The Heart, Throat, and Third-eye chakras incorporate relations with others more than the lower chakras, which focus more on the self. Ocean colors, blue tones, and pastels will soothe and cool the fiery ram off:

Amethyst, Angelite, Aquamarine, Blue Lace Agate, Celestite, Larimar, Lepidolite, Moonstone, Ocean Jasper, Prehnite, Rose Quartz, Turquoise

We hope you enjoy this new series on the blog and next month we will focus on the energies of Taurus!
