Invoking the Supermoon - Creating Lunar Eclipse Intention Incense

Spirit de la Lune Full Moon Eclipse

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.

Spirit de la Lune Full Super Moon Eclipse Intention Incense Ritual

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.

Spirit de la Lune Full Super Moon Eclipse Intention Incense Ritual

Herbs for Cancer:

  • Jasmine

  • Mugwort

  • Rose

  • Lemon balm



Herbs for Leo:

  • Sage

  • Cinnamon

  • Sunflower petals

  • Dandelion

Spirit de la Lune Full Super Moon Eclipse Intention Incense Ritual

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!)



Spirit de la Lune Full Super Moon Eclipse Intention Incense Ritual

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)



Spirit de la Lune Full Super Moon Eclipse Intention Incense Ritual

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

Spirit de la Lune Full Super Moon Eclipse Intention Incense Ritual

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

Spirit de la Lune Full Super Moon Eclipse Intention Incense Ritual

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? 



Spirit de la Lune Full Super Moon Eclipse Intention Incense Ritual

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! 💖

Happy Full Moon!

Happy Full Blue Sage Super Moon Eclipse!

Blue Moon Spirit de la Lune Ritual

Wow. What a BIG night! For many this energy can be felt intensely- making us feel raw, vulnerable and hyperaware, and for others there is almost a calm and peaceful vibe feel here as rough waters from the past are finally beginning to settle. 

Either way, there is change in the air, and we are all feeling it on some level or another.

Tonight is a Blue Moon, meaning the second Full Moon to occur this month. It is also a Super moon- she is looking 12-14% larger in the skies tonight.. and it is also a Lunar Eclipse! 

Be prepared for deep shifts to take place in your life during this time. Eclipses often act as gateways for us to make and integrate deep changes on a soul and physical level.

Full Blue Moon in Leo | Spirit de la Lune

This is also a Full Moon in Leo, a dynamic fire sign. This sign is asking you to find balance between the sacrifices you make for others and the ones you make for yourself.

We are also right upon the pagan sabbat of Imbolc. The Earth is getting ready for Spring in the Northern Hemisphere. Change is on the way as she prepares to birth something new. 

We have a unique opportunity to begin anew as well. This could manifest in different ways depending on where this moon lies in your chart, and where you are at on your path. Progress is always inevitable, and this gateway puts a lot of it in our control. 

Sage Moon Cord Cutting Ceremony | Spirit de la Lune

This Moon is also the Sage Moon. A Full Moon that embodies the energy of cleansing and purification.

Before anything new can truly grow and bloom, we must first clear away the blockages that are inhibiting the growth.

Sometimes the cleanse we need could be as simple as smudging our home with sage, or taking a salt bath to clear our energy. Sometimes even that doesn't feel "enough" to help us move forward.

When we feel resistance to change or fearful of the unknown we are many times burdened by our past circumstances. People, places, events and even things can bog us down and make us apprehensive towards our own growth without even consciously realizing it. 

It can almost feel like we are tied down to our circumstances. 

We create connections or "etheric cords" between people, places and things without even realizing we are doing it. These etheric cords can drain us emotionally, mentally and physically, and many of us don't even know it's happening! 

Big or impactful relationships or events can cause long term draining cords, while unhealthy day to day cords can become tiring over time. Empaths especially tend to pick up and hold onto etheric cords.

We not only feel our own pain, but we feel the pain of others! It can be very hard to let some of these cords go so that we can fully step into our own power to move forward.

Bound Feet | Cord Cutting Session | Spirit de la Lune

Energy flows between these cords. Sometimes healthy cords become unhealthy or toxic. Sometimes they become draining or confusing. 

For tonight's Full Moon Ceremony, we are doing a Cord Cutting Ritual to help us break free of the etheric cords that might be tying us down from our own growth.

Rachael is also offering free Reiki Healing tonight for anyone want that is interested. There is a sign up form at the bottom of the instructions, it is not mandatory to participate, but can be helpful in the integration of this process.

Cord Cutting and Renewal Ritual for the New Season

Bound | Cutting Cord Ritual | Spirit de la Lune

A cord cutting ritual will not cut off the cords from those who you are meant to be connected to, but it will help cut off the negative flow and restore the cords to a healthy state.

We will also be removing and revitalizing the old stagnant and useless/needless cords that might be draining your energy without your knowledge, and those that are within your knowledge. 

You don't need to even know what or who it is you are releasing! Trust you higher self and your guides to help you release the cords that are needed. 

Many people call in the energy and entity of Arch Angel Michael (or Metatron) to help support a cord cutting ceremony. He is the wielder of the Sword of Violet Flame, but you don't have to call upon him for this to work. Though, we will be using the Violet Flame of renewal. The Blue Moon Card of the deck even features a Violet Flame to represent the healing and rewal qualities this Moon offers.

This is a very simple but powerful and effective method of cutting the cords that bind.

1. Sit in a quiet comfortable place undisturbed. Dim the lights, turn on some soft music, turn your phone on silent, etc. A salt bath would be perfect for this ritual, but you can do it while in bed or simply sitting and meditating.

2. Relax and take some deep breaths. Center yourself and ground your energy. You can hold a black crystal like jet, tourmaline, or onyx as you do this to help keep your grounded.

3. Call in or evoke your personal guide, or Archangel Michael in whatever way you'd like. Having a guide or an etheric mediator can be helpful for this ritual. This allows you to trust in the process and allow the healing to take place on deeper levels while you focus on your breathing and visualizing. Some choose to say the name out-loud, others visualize their teacher or "feel" their presence. This is up to you,. 

Violet Flame | Spirit de la Lune Blue Moon Ceremony

4. Once you feel the presence of your chosen guide, with your eyes closed, begin to imagine a blue violet flame begin to glow and grow around your physical body. 

5. Shift your awareness to your inner self. Feel the Violet Flame glow and grow inside of you. Growing in accordance to your breathing, getting bigger with each breath.

6. As this flame gets brighter and bigger, it begins at your root chakra and slowly spirals up your body. As the flame "touches" your body, allow your imagination to "feel" what it might feel like. This could be a cold or a warm sensation depending on every individual. Imagine this Violet Flame creep and crawl up your body/aura. As it does this, it is burning away the toxic and stale cords and filling them all with golden light of forgiveness, love and healing.

You don't have to do a thing or think of anyone right now. Your job isn't to feel love, or to focus on forgiveness. Just visualize the Violet Flame engulfing your energetic and physical body.

Violet Flame Cord Cutting | Spirit de la Lune

7. When the Flame finally reaches your Third Eye and Crown Chakra begin to brighten the flame and allow it to fully engulf you from the inside out. You may visualize actual cords, vines, ink, filth, etc being burned away and dissolved completely during this time. Freely give up all debris and as much darkness as possible. Allow it to be transformed and transmuted. All that has served it's purpose is transmuted at this time. 

8. With the Violet Flame all around you and inside of your being, allow this eternal and infinite flame to expand outward to your entire house, your road, town, state/province, country and outward. Allow your focus to expand to all of humanity and the collective conscious and wrap it in the Violet Flame. The flame is burning and transmuting fear, negativity, bigotry, racism, sexism, judgement and all other lower vibrations that are no longer serving humanity as a whole. 

Spirit de la Lune Cord Cutting Session | Blue Moon Cord Cutting Session

9. When you feel complete in this process, slowly bring your focus back to your home and your body. Allow the flame to drop and diminish as slow as needed. Once the flame is down to coals move your fingers, your toes and allow the coals to go out, knowing that you can always stoke the Violet Flame again when needed.

10. Thank your guide/mediator for their assistance and stand up when you are ready. Move your body around. Drink a lot of water and eat light meals after this. Smudge the space you were in with sage, and open some windows for fresh air. 

 

**REIKI SIGNUPS NOW CLOSED** THANK YOU! **

This Ritual may have seemed simple to some, and more powerful to others.. but remember, it broke down many barriers and will continue to ripple through out time for quite a while. This ritual has a healing effect on not only yourself and those you released, but it has an effect on the whole of humanity.

Cord Cutting Spirit de la Lune

If you would like you could repeat a phrase like the one provided to the right (Or anything you'd like) out-loud during your ritual. Or even listen to a guided meditation. 

There is no right or wrong way to evoke the Violet Flame. Once you know how to do it and what it might feel like, you can bring it about whenever you feel you need it. 

Pairing this ritual with the powerful energies of this Full Super Moon Eclipse can make the effects even more powerful. But again, don't be afraid to repeat this ritual whenever you feel the need to release, renew and move forward! 

Speaking of moving forward, we are so excited to announce that our calendars are completed and soon on their way to us!

Sage Moon Ceremony | Purifying the Aura with Lunar Infused Sage Spray

Happy Sage Moon!

This Full Moon & Lunar Eclipse in Leo is packed full of powerful magical potential! 

 Tonight's Full Moon gives you the chance to step fully into your powerful magic.

Six months ago you planted a seed or held a vision of your future. Today is the day to check in and see how far you have come. 

Lunar eclipses occur every six months, giving us all an opportunity to re-evaluate our personal progress with fresh eyes and new clarity.

In order to step into our full power and realize our true potential, we must release old emotional baggage from the past six months.

There is no room for that which doesn't serve you, when entering a new phase in life. 

The Sage Moon reminds us to keep our thoughts and energy clear of negativity. Purify your energy often, cleanse your space and aura in order to make room for new growth!! 

For tonight's Full Moon, we wanted to make an aura and space cleansing spray, infused with the Full Moon Eclipse Energy. 

This powerful little bottle will clear your aura from negativity in only a few sprays. Because it is smokeless, it can be used to cleanse the energy of cars, the work place and offices.

Lunar Eclipse Infused Aura & Space Cleansing Spray

 
Sage Spray For Cleansing Auras | Spirit de la Lune
 

This spray can be used in place of smudging with smoke. This little bottle will be both powerful and easy to make using essential oils, salt, and other ingredients you may already have!

Gather Your Ingredients | Spirit de la Lune

Aura & Space Cleansing Spray:

  • 1 oz Glass spray bottles

  • Warm water (natural, distilled, or moon water works best.)

  • 1 Teaspoon Witch Hazel, (Or unflavored vodka) to preserve

  • 1 pinch of natural pink Hymalain salt or sea salt

  • 8 drops of Sage essential oil

  • 4-6 drops of essential oils of choice

  • Crystals for charging the spray


On the night of the full moon gather your ingredients.. 

Add a pinch of salt to your bottle. Salt is a natural energy purifier and helps ground the energetic body. It brings our energy back to a 0 and creates a fresh clean slate for us. 

Add your drops of oil. For tonight's spray, we used Sage essential Oil for purity, clarity and ease of thought, with Fir needle for . 

You can use this guide here to decide which oils you want to use. We recommend definitely using at least some sage for this spray!, as it's the perfect purifier for this energy.

Add the witch hazel, a natural preservative with soothing calming properties.This will help your spray from going stale. (but it's still recommended to use the bottle within a month or two.)

Add the water. Water is a powerful conductor and transfers and shifts energy quickly. It's best to use warm water to fully dissolve the salt and mix the oil together. 

You can add small crystals to your bottle, or set up a grid around your spray tonight and charge it under the Full Moon Eclipse.

 

 
Sage Aura Spray | Spirit de la Lune
 

Give it a good shake before each use. Spray all around your body to cleanse the aura. 

The healing spray will clear negative energy in the home as well. Be sure to spray into doorways and windows and other high traffic ares, as well as your own aura! 

Create a cute label, or download and print ours    here!

Sage Moon : A Purification Ritual For Spring

Winter nights are thawing into crisp cool dawns... and the spring is beckoning you towards the light.

Sage Moon Mandala Spirit de la Lune

Happy Full Moon!

It is time to let your Spirit rise and expand outward. What lessons have you learned from within? What messages and lessons do you bring back from your underworld?

This full moon is ushering in the coming spring, and with it, the need for purification. 

With every new beginning, there is a need to clear out old, residual, negative and stagnant energy. As you prepare for the new chapter of spring, take time to really release what no longer serves your spirit. 

Full Moon Sage Ritual

This ritual will help you strip away the deep layers of your heavy soul, clean up stagnant energy from your body and home, and help release energy that no longer serves. 

Sage has been used throughout history by many cultures. From healing wounds and headaches, to purifying energy and opening intuition, it's no wonder wise ones and healers are referred to as "Sages."

One of the most common methods of purifying with sage is burning it, or "smudging." Smudging has been practiced for thousands of years and has many benefits. It not only uplifts and clears energy, but it can also purify and improve air quality according to this study by GreenMedInfo.

There are several varieties of sage, and many different ways to burn it. For this ritual it is recommended to burn White Sage.

Smudging With Sage Ritual

For this ritual you will need: 

A Sage Wand

Abalone shell or bowl to catch ashes

Feather Fan

Music/ Drum (something with a good beat!) 

 

If your home is cluttered or messy, take some extra time to clean it and nourish your space. This ritual works best when the home is clean and the energy is able to flow and move about. Move some furniture around to shake up the energy.

Open up the windows and doors and allow some fresh air to enter. (And smoke to exit!) 

Take a moment to center yourself. Take some deep breaths and allow yourself to become weightless in the present moment. State your intention out loud and hold it in your heart space.

Light some sage and allow the smoke to rise, letting your troubles float away into the infinite abyss. 

Now is a good time to turn on some music or beat a drum. Stagnant energy needs lots of movement, and the vibrations of a good beat are a great way to shake up energy up and get things moving.

A good shake of the hips and some dancing is also great way to clear out old energy in the body and the lower chakras. Get things moving, loosen up and have some fun! 

Use the abalone shell to catch ashes as your sage burns, and the feather fan to direct the smoke into the nooks and crannies of your home.

You can chant, drum and dance as you clear each room. Shake things up! Beat on your pillows and shake out your rugs. Stomp in the corners, clap your hands and wake up the energy in your home.

As you dance from room to room, directing the sacred healing smoke upwards, remember to hold your intention in your heart. 

Spend extra time in any areas that feel heavy or confined. 

As you finish each room, sprinkle a bit of the cooled ash over the door frames and windowsills, and leave each room with a sense of reverence and gratitude.

When your house feels cleansed and pure, take some time to purify yourself. Spend extra time bathing your hands and feet in the smoke.

Breath in to your heart space new possibilities. A purified spirit crafts a purified intent.

Once your energy, spirit and space is feeling clear to you turn on some calmer music and allow the smoke to clear. Allow the sage to burn out on it's own or put the sage out using your shell.
