Full Blood Moon in Aries - To Summon The Spirit of A Loved One

Happy Full Blood Moon!

This Full Moon in Aries can feel a little bit intense! Full Moons always heighten emotions, but this full moon is square Pluto and Trine Jupiter. This dynamic energy gives us opportunity to see through whatever crisis we might have been, or currently are facing with the perspective of growth and transformation. Emotions might be a little intense right now… but the heaviness is soon lifting. Pluto wants to uncover what has been hidden and keeping you from your growth, while Jupiter is pushing you to keep stepping into your potential.

Many souls have been going through this period of transformation and we are needing to trust in the darkness that precedes rebirth. We have felt the urge for inner and spiritual growth by making positive changes in our daily lives, and this is the time to maintain that and keep those new habits up.

This full moon holds power for deep transformation… your intuition is heightened and you are being asked to step into your full power. Spiritual and personal growth are important right now if you want to see anything else grow in your life!

The full moon is in Aries which lends us extra inspiration and aids in the fires of rebirth and transformation. Aries wants you to face things head on and trust that your inner fire will light the way.

This Blood Moon takes place on the 13th of the month once again… While it’s not Friday the 13th, this is still a lucky and magical day.13 is the number of the Goddess and is often associated with witchcraft. Magic made on the 13th is extra potent!

As we get closer to Samhain and the next turning of the Wheel of the Year, the veil between realms thins as our ancestors and the spirits of our loved ones walk with us, feeling closer than ever. There are subtle but powerful forces walking with us and guiding us right now.

Your ancestors and guides are calling to you to help you awaken to your true power! Invite them in, listen to what they may be telling you during this transformational time. We are not here to walk this path alone.

A Spell to Summon a Loved One’s Spirit

People come into our lives for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. Some people leave a imprint on our hearts, never to be erased by time or memory. We are blessed to have many people in our lives, even though some of them may have died, also known as crossing to the other side, passing through the veil, transitioning, and by other terms.

The use of different phrases is important because it points to the fact that there is a thin veil between those living on earth and those in Heaven, the Other Side, Spirit World, Nirvana, Summerland, Elysian Fields, and many more names.

There is a way to move between the worlds and connect with those no longer with us in flesh and bone.

Most of the time this connection will not be in the form of having a chat with our loved one sitting at the end of our bed, although it can be. Often, we will experience their presence. The room may turn cold, the wind might pick up unexpectedly, or we may be surrounded in an aura of color. Since we are all energy, even in Spirit form, often our loved ones communicate with us through electricity. Lights may flicker, computers could randomly turn on, or the phone will ring but no one answers on the other end.

You do not need a specific reason to summon a loved one, other than to simply enjoy their presence again. This is not a spell to be done lightly or for show.

This is a formal request to pierce the veil between the living and the Spirit realms and must be performed with pure intention. A great time to do this spell is on Halloween, also known as Samhain, or any Saturday otherwise.

Place a picture of your loved one on a north- facing wall, or if you can, position an altar in this direction.

Light a white candle.

If you know your loved one’s favorite scent, either burn that incense, wear that perfume, or place that flower on the altar.

Full Blood Moon in Aries Spell to Summon the Spirit of your loved ones and ancestors for Samhain

If you do not, gather lavender sprigs, wear a few drops of lavender oil, or burn lavender incense.

Prepare a snack for the two of you (or however many people are in the ritual), making sure to include your loved one’s favorite foods.

Sit in front of your altar, and imagine them sitting next to you.

Relax; you are only calling on the Spirit of a familiar loved one. Watch for any little sign, which may also come later in a dream.

This spell is best performed around the time of Samhain when the veil is the thinnest, but remember the spirit world is always around us! You can call upon your spirit guides, ancestors or loved ones at any time, but this Full Moon and the weeks leading up to Samhain hold potent energy.

Remember to be watchful of how your loved ones communicate with you. Everyone experiences Spirit messages differently… but your spirit guides and ancestors will make their message known to you in a way you will not miss.

Happy Full Blood Moon!

New Moon in Libra

Happy New Moon in Libra!

New+Moon+in+Libra+-+Spirit+de+la+lune.jpg

The moon joins the sun in Libra on the 28th of September. We are officially in Libra season!

This new moon in Libra brings in a breath of fresh air and a sense of harmony to our relationships while offering us opportunity to reconnect in new ways.

This month holds a lot of other aspects that will cause some transformation within yourself and your personal relationships that can last into 2020.

This is a very important month for making progress and transformation in 2020. Luckily, Saturn the planet of Karma and lessons went direct last week, which is helping us see our path with a bit more clarity.

Each New Moon, using our planners and our Spirit de la Lune deck, we create the Moonthly energy reading for the coming month ahead.

Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Libra 2019

Grab some warm cider and scroll on to see what this new moonth holds.

 

New Moon in Libra

IMG_6380.JPG

This New Moon in Libra brings in the need for peace and harmony. There is a need for balance to be restored in your life right now. Find your inner peace this week, because our relationships and connections with others will be an important lesson this month.

You might feel called towards restoring balance and finding a sense of harmony in your relationships and your personal lives… This means you might feel more apt to just keeping the peace when it comes to your relationships and sharing your heart. You might feel it’s best to play nice and not disrupt the peace at this time. This might be harder than it seems… and if that’s the case, it might be a situation where you need to share your truth!

Find balance in yourself first when it comes to interacting with others and sharing your truth. Personal relationships might become a major focus this month. We might feel pulled towards restoring and reconnecting around this time.

A new moon in Libra is a time to see things in a more diplomatic way. Consider and view all perspectives and weigh all options before making any decisions. Libra is a time when decision making can be difficult, but observing is important. The Moon is in Libra for a only a few days, so it might be best to put off any big decision making until a later time. Instead gather the evidence and weigh your decisions.

There is also a focus on cultural concerns and social justice and a need to restore harmony within the world. Often times it feels like there is nothing we can do to help the greater good, despite our best intentions. This new moon might have you feeling this way in a heightened way.

As above, So below. This New Moon in Libra asks us to restore our own sense of inner peace and balance. Remember that everything is connected when you heal yourself, you heal the world around you.

Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Libra 2019

Mercury enters Scorpio on October 3rd which will helps you observe your own emotions, desires and relationships in a new way. When the planet of communication is in Scorpio, we feel words on a deeper level as our emotions too are deepened. It’s important to speak your truth… but it’s also important that your truth is in alignment with your heart! Be careful to not lash out or have knee jerk reactions towards others at this time.

Pluto goes direct on the 3rd of October which will help us set in stone the transformation and inner work we have been doing. Over the last 5 months or so, we have been asked to make huge changes within. Pluto is now going direct and this will help us fully integrate those lessons to make lasting change.

Mars enters Libra on the 4th of October which brings an even greater focus to our relationships and partnerships this week. There is a sense of wanting harmony, but an urgency behind it that you need to be aware of. Mars and Libra hold very opposing energy. Try to be patient and diplomatic when it comes to conflict.

There is a lot of focus on our personal lives and relationships this week and you might feel energy from early September come up again around this time. Look at this like a test that you’ve been preparing for all year. There may have been something you tried to put an end to early September that might rise up again around this time. You will need to stick to the boundaries you set in order to know these changes have been lasting.

Relationships and connections to others will be a big deal this week. Remember to focus on what connects you rather than what divides you while the moon and Sun are both in Libra.

Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Libra 2019

The card pulled for this week is Waxing Gibbous, Connect. For a week that is so focused on establishing peace and balance in our relationships, it’s no surprise this card would come up! It’s important to seek connection right now and notice where your connections are. Be sure that the connections you are sending out aren’t draining energy from you! If you are finding that others in your social circle or personal relationships aren’t striving for connection and are instead putting up resistance, it might be time to walk away for now. If you have been shutting out others or resisting connection, now is the time to soften your heart and welcome it. The astrology this week brings our relationships into focus so that we can strengthen our connection with them, ourselves and Spirit.

First Quarter Moon on October 5th

Spirit de la Lune New Moon Energy Reading October 2019

The moon turns to first quarter on the 5th of October in the sign of Capricorn. The first quarter moon in Capricorn is a time of action and discipline. It’s important that you keep to your schedule this week, and the waxing moon in Capricorn the Achiever can make it easy and enjoyable.

The first quarter realm represents fire, while Capricorn holds energy of the Earth. We can get a lot done with this kind of energy this week! Capricorn drives us to want to see tangible results when it comes to matters of the home, work and our personal goals. Stay disciplined this week as the moon shifts into Aquarius; which will give us a slightly less disciplined mindset when it comes to matters that might seem mundane or boring.

Venus enters Scorpio on October 8th, which tends to give off an “all or nothing” approach in relationships… We tend to see things in more black and white with Scorpio. With all of the other aspects going on in our relationships, this one can cause heightened emotions and passions within relationships to arise. This could be jealousy or other negative emotions that have been hidden below the surface to come up.

Spirit de la Lune New Moon Energy Reading October 2019

The card pulled for this week is Waning Crescent, Be. You might be feeling low on energy in some way or another this week. It’s important to not force anything right now. Don’t make any big decisions if you don’t have to, instead simply observe your situation. Ground yourself and find your center. There might be a situation this week where you will need to decide to not engage and simply let it “be.” You may have to accept things the way they are and remember that with each ending you have opportunity for rebirth. Remember to give thanks and play witness this week. Old feelings might be surfacing in order to be observed and healed. Forgive yourself and others, thank them, and love them and release the emotions that no longer serve you.

Full Blood Moon in Aries

New Moon in Libra 2019 Spirit de la Lune New Moon Energy Report

The Full Blood Moon takes place on the 13th of October in the sign of Aries. We are now in the darker seasons of the year. Energy turns inward and ebbing is necessary right now. The harvest is now withering, but new seeds can be found for the new year ahead.

This Full Blood Moon makes it apparent, the old must die in order to sustain new life.

There might be a sense of uncertainty and urgency around this full moon for many people. Aries wants to see action, and rush to the ending so we can start something new. Try to not rush yourself or others. Slow down so that you can make clear decisive actions at a comfortable pace.

Another sense of uncertainty may be surrounding the Full Moon in Aries square Pluto .

IMG_6378.JPG

This aspect shines light on hidden and destructive behavior and habits. Feelings, secrets or other wounds we felt were buried might rise up. Intense emotions and intense reactions can take place. Be careful to not let any impulsive or intense reaction lead you towards anything destructive that might cause crisis in your life.

There is a sense of exposing secrets, old wounds and other destructive behavior coming to the surface to be exposed. Fears and phobias as well as racism and sexism may come up in the media. There is a lot of emotional manipulation and massive power struggles happening world wide. This is all slowly being exposed to the world.

This is a week when festering wounds might be exposed. This can also be apparent in your interpersonal relationships! Be aware of how this might be happening in your personal life and try to put an end to it if you can. Don’t allow jealousy, guilt tripping, manipulation or any kind of emotional or mental abuse happen. It’s time to start calling out the behavior that needs to end and be healed.

The Full Blood Moon in October brings up some challenges because of the Moon Square Pluto aspect, but it can also be a positive Full Moon for many! The trine to Jupiter makes this an abundant and fortunate full moon for many who have been putting in the work to better themselves.

Crisis within our relationships are possible… but there are more opportunities to reconnect and resolve problems once and for all. We are seeing improvement happening, but we need to accept that it might be gradual. After this full moon passes you might notice your relationships will feel a bit less strained.

New Moon in Libra 2019 Spirit de la Lune New Moon Energy Report
New Moon in Libra 2019 Spirit de la Lune New Moon Energy Report

The card pulled for this week is Waning Crescent, Boundaries. Don’t let anyone cross your boundaries this week. Strong boundaries are important and if you haven’t already set boundaries, this week is a good time to do so. Boundaries are not walls around our hearts, they are the doors that let some in, and keep others out. You may have felt called to set clear boundaries over this summer, and this Full Moon might cause some situation to arise that might test these boundaries. Be clear and stand up for yourself first. You will soon find that boundaries will surprisingly give you a greater sense of freedom!

Last Quarter Moon on the 27th

New Moon in Libra 2019 Spirit de la Lune New Moon Energy Report

The moon begins to wane after the full moon and we begin to feel our own energy wane again too. The sign of Leo helps us speak our truth to our loved ones in a way that helps both parties feel understood and seen.

The chaos in our personal relationships is beginning to lift this week. As clarity returns, we are able to see the steps we want to take. This last quarter moon in Leo helps us know what we want so that we can start to see the opportunities. If you don’t know what you want, you won’t know what to look for!

On the 23rd of October, the Sun moves into Scorpio. Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, the planet of death and transformation. The months ahead call for a period of self-transformation. We are all here to experience the transformation and evolution of self. The sun in Scorpio helps shine light on the areas in our lives that we might need to focus on.

New Moon in Libra 2019 Spirit de la Lune New Moon Energy Report

The card pulled for this week is waxing Crescent, Awareness. As the moon turns once again to new and the veil between realms gets thinner and thinner you might feel your awareness of the spirit realm heightened more and more. Your sensitivity is increasing. Remain flexible and aware of your own personally energy flow and follow your intuition before making any decisions. Focus on the bigger picture and learn from your past. You are being shown ways to transform yourself to better align with your highest self. Have faith that you can move forward with more wisdom and understanding than ever before.

2019 Harvest Moon Mabon Ritual

Happy Full Harvest Moon!

Harvest Moon spirit de la lune
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.

Graveyard+Dirt+_+Spirit+de+la+Lune.jpg

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.

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.

The Crystal Companion this week is Clear Quartz. Clear Quartz magnifies all the energy of other stones as well as your emotions. It is the universal healing stone. Perfect for use in grids. Point the stones outward to rid of negativity and releasing. Point the stones inward towards the center to activate and absorb the nourishing healing effects of Quartz.

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

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.

You won’t make fear based decisions if you can be in tune with your true desires.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

This Eclipse Seasons reminds us that we are about half way through the year. This unfolding moon cycle is a powerful reminder for us to get back to our original goals and intentions… while reminding us that it is never too late to begin.

The Eclipses this cycle will offer you fresh energy and a powerful boost towards your intentions.

Set an intention tonight with the next 6 months in mind. The Eclipse Season will last until the Solar Eclipse on December 26th 2019. In 6 months you might notice these things come back up, so keep an open mind, and be mindful as your navigate this Eclipse season!

Overall, this Blessing Moon Cycle is one of new beginnings, fresh opportunities and a brand new start. It might be a little bit intense so many of us, but it’s a month of transformation and rebirth that so many of us are ready for.

Be gentle with yourself and others this month. The changes that are happening are big and important. It’s a good time to practice self-care as well as compassion for the needs of others.
