Preparing the Soil : New Moon in Aquarius Energy Reading

Happy New Moon!

This New Moon cycle holds so much potential for new growth! The new moon on the 4th of February takes place in the sign of Aquarius.

Aquarius is an optimistic and open minded sign that is sure to bring a breath of fresh air into our lives. This might be the change you’ve been looking for.

This is a great time to prepare the metaphorical soil for the things you want to create! The planetary aspects this month lend us both clear and creative visionary thinking. You might even start seeing some tangible results.

Each month we use the the 4 turnings of the moon, astrology and our Spirit de la Lune deck to create the New Moon Energy Reading! So grab a cup of coffee and keep scrolling to see what this New Moon Cycle has in store for you!

Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Aquarius Energy Report
 

New Moon in Aquarius

Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Aquarius Energy Report

This New Moon holds what feels like an optimistic breath of fresh air compared to some of the heavier cycles we have had in recent past! This is an optimistic and hopeful New Moon- not only are we feeling the burst of energy that comes with the rebirth of the moon but we are feeling good about where things are heading.

This could be considered a lucky month!

The new moon sextile Jupiter is what adds to that sense of hope and happiness. The Aquarius new moon helps us visualize what we want in a clear way, and because Mercury is also sextile Jupiter, we are able to communicate our desires and ideas in a clear way. This positive thinking helps our decision making skills, and when we are looking for opportunities, we will find them and make the right decisions.

This all really helps us bring our focus into building something new!

The card pulled for this week is Rest. What do you need to put to rest in order to bring in the growth you are wanting? While we might be feeling a sense of new energy with this new moon, rest is an important aspect when it comes to growth. Be sure that you yourself are getting the rest that you need. Take time to “unplug” before bed. Reducing the amount of screen time or “blue light” before bed for an hour or more can help your natural circadian rhythms get back to normal and give you restful sleep with insightful dreams. Try candles beside your bed instead of a bright lamp to see how it affects your quality of rest.

First Quarter Moon in Taurus

Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Aquarius Energy Report

The First Quarter Moon takes place in Taurus on the 12th of February. During the waxing phase, the moon grows brighter in the sky each night. The waxing phase holds the element of fire, and like the moon our own energy and passion burn brighter and brighter with each day.

Now is the time to put your New Moon intentions and goals into action! Create your to-do list and then be ready to tackle it. This week looks like it will be productive!

Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Aquarius Energy Report

Being an earth sign, the Moon in Taurus puts a spotlight on your physical surroundings and the desire to see tangible results.

In order for a seed to grow, the soil must be prepared properly.

It’s an important time to maintain or create the physical atmosphere that supports the growth and change you are wanting to plant.

This is a great time to complete things around the house, water your houseplants, or begin a garden. We might even feel a pull to complete those physical or laborious tasks we’ve been putting off.

The card pulled for this phase is Manifest, a sure sign that your results are on their way! Take a look at what you are manifesting right now. Remember that your thoughts are things, and they are often the first part of any manifestation. Be aware and in control of your own thoughts and emotions this week if you are having trouble seeing the manifestations you are looking for!

SuperMoon in Virgo

The Seed Moon

Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Aquarius Energy Report
Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Aquarius Energy Report

The Full Moon in Virgo on the 19th of February is a Supermoon! This means the Moon is larger in the sky, and the emotional and intuitive effects are heightened!

Virgo is the healer and paired with this Full Supermoon brings our awareness to our physical bodies.

It’s important to remember that our bodies are extra sensitive when the moon is in Virgo. It might be wise to stay away from tons of junk food or other low-grade foods and vegetables during this lunar transit.

But, this makes for a great time to begin new routines, work out habits, diets or other life style changes you’ve been meaning to begin!

The Moon in Virgo also amplifies our attention to detail. You might feel prone to criticism or cynicism... Try to not get caught up in this and instead focus on listing your blessings!

Switching your mindset to gratitude will help you plant the seeds you for the future!

This full moon also a great time to organize and really clear out any of the old negative energy that remains. Now is the time to begin to create those new habits that you’ve always been meaning to! The moon supports you!

Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Aquarius Energy Report

The card pulled for this phase is Surrender. What do you need to surrender in order to create change in your life? If you aren’t seeing the results you are wanting to… reflect on the parts of your life you want to leave in the past. What are you holding onto? What do you need to weed out in order to support your new growth? Alternatively, it might be time for you to release and put to rest something you’ve been mentally struggling with. Sometimes “letting go” and surrendering IS the next step. Only then will you be able to see clearly. When we accept the present moment we are able to see clearly again free from resistance and anxiety. It is then that we can see the next steps forward.

Last Quarter Moon in Sagittarius

Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Aquarius Energy Report
Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Aquarius Energy Report

The Last Quarter Moon takes place in Sagittarius on the 26th of February ending this cycle in another optimistic and positive sign.

As the moon wanes in the sky, our own energy is called back in for reflection and rejuvenation. This a week for tying up loose ends and finishing up the things you started during the last New Moon.

This is a great time for making plans and goals that you don’t need to act on quite yet. Take this time to plan ahead and make some long term plans.

There may not be much you can physically do about it at this time, but keeping yourself focused on long term goals and pouring your positive energy and optimism into those plans can be more powerful than you know!

The card pulled for this phase is Guidance. Trust in the process right now and most importantly, trust in yourself. Take time out for meditation this week and tune in to your higher self. You have an inner guidance system that knows and understands more than you realize, and you are sharpening your intuition and remembering more each day that you tune into your inner guru. Trust that the teachers you need will find you when you are ready, and understand that some of your answers already lie within.

Spirit de la Lune 2019 Planner

Don’t forget to utilize your Tune to the Moon Planner this month! We are SO excited that all of the planners have been shipped and all orders are caught up.

Shipping dates are now 2-5 days for planners too. These planners are PACKED full of magick & ritual, and because of that, they are pretty heavy. This means they may take a few extra days to get to you! Please be patient!

We created Spirit de la Lune in the spirit of sisterhood and empathy since those traits are so badly needed in this day and age, sometimes we too need that spirit of understanding and compassion shown to us.

Blessed New Moon and Imbolc!

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! 💖

Spirit de la Lune Marissa and Rachael

Happy Full Moon!

2019 Solar Eclipse & New moon in Capricorn Energy Report

Happy Solar Eclipse and New Moon in Capricorn! 

This is the first official complete moon cycle of 2019 and all the cards we pulled for this cycle are the Full Moondala cards carrying really big energy! This just affirms that THIS IS THE CYCLE to help us set the whole foundation of 2019 and by doing so we will create ripples through the months to come!

2019 New Moon in Capricorn energy report

So grab a cup of tea, and your journal and pen! It is time to create the life you have always dreamed of in 2019!

Partial Solar Eclipse in Capricorn 1.5.2019

The the Solar Eclipse is a highly-charged New Moon when the Moon is in exact alignment with the Sun, the Sun is illuminating and supporting the New Moon... So whatever intentions you set tonight be very clear and focused with them (think capturing the light of the sun in a magnifying glass) and the Capricorn energy will definitely help with this. This New Moon is great for setting intentions for career, money, security, and building a foundation you can live and thrive on so keep this in mind when you set your intentions.

2019 New Moon in Capricorn energy report

Bloom in all your Radiance

We pulled the moondala: Flower Moon, which means whatever your goals are, you have all the resources you need to fully bloom and embody this dream. So don't be afraid to be very specific! Capricorn is very strategizing and and really wants to set you up for success. 

Uranus goes direct on January 6th, so expect the unexpected. This means be bold and take action this moon cycle... whatever ideas that have been brewing and swirling around in your head since August 2018, as crazy as they may seem, now is the time to act upon them. Also don't be surprised if any weird, unexpected events or circumstances present themselves to you... it's all a part of the bigger picture.

First Quarter in Aries 1.13.2019

The the First Quarter is always the ignition for the moon cycle... And with the First Quarter being in Aries, the Inspirer,  Aries is a natural ignitor of energy, vitality, inspiration, and fire. Focus energy into your creative projects and your goals and you will see your hard work pay off and abundance will flow. 

2019 New Moon in Capricorn energy report

Be open to receive Your Abundance

The moondala pulled for this week was the Corn Moon... all about growth, harvest, and abundance. It can all be yours if you allow yourself to receive it. Keep your heart open and keep your thoughts focusing on your creativity, your intuition, and the magick you are creating, and the universe will meet you halfway. No time for lack!

With all that being said, Jupiter squares Neptune on the First Quarter Moon as well... so do not make any hasty decisions or actions which Aries energy is prone to do. Something may feel too good to be true, so trust your instincts and take time to evaluate before you make a big decision. 

Total Lunar Eclipse in Leo 1.20.2019

2019 New Moon in Capricorn energy report

You are Whole Unto Yourself

2019 New Moon in Capricorn energy report

The Total Lunar Eclipse in Leo is a beautiful Full Moon you do not want to miss. With all the cosmic energy aligning with Earth, Lunar Eclipses are all about embodiment… embodying these cosmic energies through our own bodies with grace and ease. With this energy centered around Leo (the Queen or King of the zodiac), it is time to embrace and reclaim our own birthright of power, influence, and sovereignty.

In numerology, 2019 is distilled into 12 and 3… the Hanged Man and the Empress. Surrender to embody your magick and power. Reclaim your abundance on Earth.. it s your birth right. You are a fertile, magickal, abundant being and you are meant to do great work!

2019 New Moon in Capricorn energy report

The moondala pulled is the Super Moon, which this Full Moon is a Super moon as well! It is time to remember what you already know deep within you. Get back to the basics too… what is it you really love and want to do in the world? What do you want to embody and stand for? What would it be like to step into your power, wear your crown, and be the King/Queen you are meant to be?

This may sound daunting, but remember this Moon Cycle may be the most important Moon Cycle you to focus on in 2019… everything else will begin to flow once you settle into your new foundations and begin to truly thrive!

Stay tuned for a Full Moon ceremony where we will teach you how to create your own loose incense for the Sage Moon and embody your power for 2019!

Last Quarter Moon in Scorpio 1.27.2019

2019 New Moon in Capricorn energy report

In the Darkness I am Reborn

The Last Quarter brings us into Scorpio energy... dark, mysterious, magickal. Scorpio energy can also lead us in Shadow work… where we can fully release the power and control our fears and doubts have over us. And with the moondala, Blood Moon, pulled it is time to let go and shed.

You may have felt so aligned and bold and assertive and peaked at the Full Moon, and now maybe your energy is crashing… this can happen and know it is perfectly natural. Like high tide and low tide, the currents are here to guide you, no matter how low you may feel. The Last Quarter energy is here to show you where you can release and let go to fully embrace the new goals and intentions you set for 2019.

Write down your fears, resistance, and doubts moving into 2019, and release them in a ceremony. You could burn them in your cauldron, literally flush them down the toilet, bury them in the earth, or throw them in the trash! The physical act of releasing is what is needed, and when you do this with intention, humbleness, and standing in your truth, you can really move forward into the 2019 you want to invoke.

We hope you enjoyed this reading and we hope it inspires you to make 2019 your best year yet! Don’t forget to set out your cards and crystals under the Solar Eclipse tonight!

2018 Wolf Moon: Seven Ways to Celebrate the Solstice

Happy Full Moon & Merry Solstice Season!

Wolf Full Moon Spirit de la lune Ritual

The Wolf Full Moon this year takes place the day after the Solstice, Yule... the darkest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, or the lightest day (Litha) in the Southern Hemisphere.

We thought it would be fun to share 7 ways to celebrate the Winter Solstice, and in turn, you can do any of these activities on the Full Moon as well!

Listen to your intuition and choose 1 or more activities below to celebrate Yule and the Full Wolf Moon!

1545350081134.jpg

1. Celebrate with a Yule Log

Yule is one of the seasonal celebration of the Sun and light on the Wheel of the Year. It marks the rebirth of the Sun after the darkest day of the year. It symbolizes hope and renewal knowing the darkness will pass and light will always return. An omen much needed in the cold winter months.

A beautiful and ancient tradition is burning the Yule Log. Evergreens, have always been venerated by the ancients because of their eternal nature and ability to live through the cold Winters unlike the deciduous trees. The Druids would travel deep into the forests in winter to harvest Holly and Mistletoe, and the Yule log was either gifted or chosen on one’s own land and burned specifically on Yule in the hearth of the home.

We can replicate this tradition by burning a specific log in the fireplace, or creating a Yule log and drilling 3 whole in it to place candles in. Write your intentions on the log, sprinkle it with herbs, pour mead or wine on it as an offering to the Fae or the God and Goddess, or Holly King, and burn it the night of Solstice. You can also dress the candles if you cannot burn a full log. Or you can celebrate with a bonfire.


2. Create a Yule Witch's Bauble

A Yule tree carries great symbolism and in a way is an altar in of itself, what we hang and put on our tree is very important to our personal beliefs. So amp up your yule time altar by placing a beautiful and herbal-charged ornament onto your yule tree!

Witches+Bauble+Ornament+for+Yule+Full+Cold+Moon+_+Spirit+de+la+Lune.jpg

3. Create a Wolf Moon Den

Wolf+Moon+Den+-+Spirit+de+la+Lune.jpg

With Winter in full swing in the Northern Hemisphere, the Cancer Full Moon may be pulling you to stay home and seek nourishment (or gravitate towards the ocean in the Southern Hemisphere heat of Summer). The Wolf Moon encourages you to listen to your body. Listen to your primal instincts and what you need right now.


4. Solstice Vigil

To honor both the dark and light of Solstice hold a vigil for yourself and focus on your intentions and meanings of Yuletide. Turn off all lights and experiencing the longest night of the year, reflect on renewal and peace, what 2018 brought you and what Yule means to you. When you are ready, or when it is the exact time of the Winter Solstice, turn the lights back on to symbolize the birth of the New Solar Year, or watch the sunrise.


5. Have a Solstice Gathering

New+Moon+in+Sagittarius+Moonthly+Energy+Reading+Spirit+de+la+Lune.jpg

The Wolf Moon is a time to celebrate with your tribe, so we thought we would show you how to create your own moon circle and celebrate with all your sistars to bring in the Solstice with lots of love, connection, and joy!


6. Solstice Reading

1545348567374.jpg
  1. What has the darkness taught me?

  2. What am I leaving behind?

  3. What is the light revealing to me?

  4. What is being renewed?

  5. How can I shine my light even brighter than before?


7. 2019 Word of the Year Ceremony

Choosing+A+Card+Spirit+de+la+Lune.jpg

A word of the year allows you to choose something that is a guide or inspiration, a reminder rather than a rigid goal. A Word of the Year acts as an anchor that can bring you back to your center and core goals. Learn how to choose a word of the year for 2019 with our ceremony!

We hope you have a beautiful Holiday season, whatever you may celebrate, and may 2019 be your most magickal year yet!

Now is the time to focus and channel your energy into your big plans and let this energy move through your body in a healthy way. Burn any excess energy off by moving your body and tap into your strength. You are stronger than you think!

Full Moon in Cancer

December 22nd

New Moon in Sagittarius Moonthly Energy Reading Spirit de la Lune

New Moon in Sagittarius Moonthly Energy Reading Spirit de la Lune

The Cancer energy of the Wolf Moon will most likely have you seeking the solace of your home and staying close to your loved ones. Reach out to that person who is on your mind and let them know you care... Most likely they need to hear from you right now. 

The card pulled for the Full Moon, is the Sage Moon card: Purify. If you are having guests over for the holidays, this would be a great time to focus on your home and cleanse it and align it with the seasonal energies. Make your home extra cozy, with candles, blankets, decorations... And don't forget to trim the tree! These actions will keep the warm embers of your heart aglow and you will feel more peaceful with a cozy and clean environment.

Libra's energy will keep you focused on what needs balance in your life as you move into the new year.  

 What was harmonious in 2018 for you?

What threw you off balance in 2018? 

What energy do you want to invoke and embody in 2019? 

New Moon in Sagittarius Moonthly Energy Reading Spirit de la Lune

The card pulled for this phase is Envision. Really open your third-eye and visualize your life and how you want it to Flow in 2019. You can moonifest it! Embody your light and magick and everything else will flow.

Have faith in yourself! 

We hope your solstice and holiday season is merry and bright!

Don’t forget to cleanse your decks and crystals under the new moon tonight, and be sure to set an intention for the moonth ahead.

Full Cold Moon in Gemini | A Vision Board Ritual

Happy Full Moon!

Happy Full Moon in Gemini!

And Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate! Tonight is the Full Cold Moon, and those of us in the northern hemisphere are likely going to feel a turn in the weather from here on out as the Full November Moon often marks colder temperatures on the way.

The Full Moon in Gemini is the perfect time for planning ahead and envisioning your future. Typically New Moon’s hold great energy for setting intention, but the Cold Moon represents an ebb in energy, and that couldn’t be more perfect as Mercury is in Retrograde until the 6th of December. Take this time to look at your intentions and goals. Rework what needs to be reworked! Refine your intention.

Spirit de la lune Mercury Retrograde

It might be hard to see what steps to take right now to attain your vision, so take a step back and enjoy the visualization part. Your imagination is a powerful tool!

Mercury Retrograde makes for the perfect time to refine your work, and make plans.

This is the perfect time to shop around and compare rather than make big or spontaneous purchases. Be careful no to sign important contracts, or make life altering decisions right now. You might be prone to changing your mind when Mercury goes direct!

Remember there is no need to hide away during this time. Go with the flow, but expect some delays. Be understanding of yourself and others, and use this time to prepare and plan.

The Moon is in the house of Gemini, an intellectual air sign that loves to ponder and expand ideas. We are using this lunar energy and Mercury Retrograde to create vision boards for our future. A vision board is a tool that helps us clarify and amplify our goals and intentions.

Creating a Full Moon Vision Board

Cold Moon Spirit de la Lune Full Moon Vision Board Ritual

Put simply, a vision board is a place where you put images or words that match your goals and desires so you can see them daily and reaffirm your intention.

There have been numerous studies done on visualization and success rates. Check out this cool study from forbes magazine!

Creating a Vision Board on the night of the Full Moon can be very impactful. Especially if you are combining it with crystals and other elements of magick!

Cold Moon Spirit de la Lune Full Moon Vision Board Ritual

What you will need:

  • intention or goal

  • images and words from magazine clippings, or websites

  • poster board or cardboard, you can do this in your journal, art journal, the back of a notebook etc.

  • mod-podge, glue, or tape

  • paintbrush

  • crystals that match your intention

  • altar

It’s important to begin this ritual with a clear intention. Vision boards can be focused on long term or short term goals. Go back to your new moon intention if you need to! If you aren’t sure where to start, begin by journaling or meditating. Ask yourself where you would like to be in a year, or 5 years.

Spirit de la Lune Full Cold Moon Vision Board Magic Ritual
  1. Meditate on your intention and visualize what it is you are wanting to create in your life. As you do this, check in with your emotions. What would it feel like to attain this vision? What emotions does this vision evoke?

  2. Once you have your intention, Go through old magazines, websites or books and look for images and words that feel in alignment with your vision and the emotion you evoked during step one. The images you choose don’t have to look e

    The images you choose don’t have to look exactly like what you are wanting. You are just wanting a visual that evokes the emotion you felt during the process. You can find great magazine for vision boards at thrift stores or online here. Pick words or short phrases that feel in alignment with your vision as well. A good mixture of both will help both hemispheres of your brain, and your subconscious and conscious get to work!

3. Once you have gathered your words and images, arrange them on your poster board in a way that looks good to you!

collage hints:

  • Try several arrangements. Take pictures and compare. You will want to like the way it looks!

  • Glue in layers. Use big pieces for the background.

  • Put the words and smaller images on last.

  • Apply the mod-podge directly to the posterboard. Applying it to magazine . paper will make it weak and curl.

  • Take a picture of your arrangement before you begin gluing. It’s easy to forget how you wanted it once you start gluing!

  • You don’t need much glue with magazine paper. It tends to bubble up, so use thin layers and gently press the bubbles out with your fingertip.

4. Once the glue is dry, it’s time to charge and dedicate your board!

You can use crystals or other meaningful objects to charge your board.

Pleace your vision board on a flat surface, preferable where the Full Moon can shine onto it, and arrange your crystals around and over your vision board.

You can use any crystals that are in alignment with your vision! I used quartz points and rose quartz for mine because quartz can be programmed with your intention and is a great amplifier.

Keep your board charged under the moonlight for the duration of the Full Moon

5. After the Full Moon, place your board on your altar for the remainder of the lunar cycle or for however long you’d like it to keep it up.

It’s recommended to keep your vision board somewhere where you will see it often.

You can add new things to your vision board as you feel! There are no official rules. Make it your very own!

Full Moon energy can best be felt three days before and three days after the actual Full Moon, so you will have plenty of time to gather your magazines if you don’t have any around your house!

Happy Full Moon!

New Moon in Scorpio | Moonthly Energy Report

Happy New Moon in Scorpio!

This New Moon in Scorpio is a very intense and emotional one. Many of us have been feeling the depths of this New Moon for several days now. Not only is it election time… but both the Moon and the Sun are in Scorpio right now. This means our inner world and outer world are both feeling that intensity and rawness that Scorpio can bring.

Venus is just now getting out of Scorpio, but you may still be feeling her, as Venus is still in her “Shadow Period.” Venus, the planet of love, has been retrograde in Scorpio the house of darkness and transformation since October, and won’t go direct until the 16th of November.

This will take a lot of pressure off of our relationships, as we are able to see things a bit clearer with the balancing help of Libra. Just as Venus goes direct, Mercury goes retrograde in the fiery sign of Sagittarius on the 17th of November.

New Moon in Scorpio Energy Reading | Spirit de la Lune

Mercury Retrograde is nothing to worry about, it can be a great time for reflection and planning for this month.

This month looks like it can bring a lot of major breakthroughs and provide the ending of old cycles if seen with awareness!

So, brew a cup of warm coffee or tea and read on to see what this New Moon Cycle has instore for you!

Each New Moon, we take a look at the Lunar Cycle ahead and pull a card from the Spirit de la lune deck to create our Moonthly Energy Report.

New Moon in Scorpio

This New Moon is a time of powerful and intense emotions!

New Moons are about new beginnings and starting fresh. Where do you need a fresh start in your life? You have the answers within you, but it’s your emotions that will show you the answers the right now.

It’s very important to feel your emotions and try to understand what they are trying to teach you. Which can be hard, because everything just feels so intense right now.

Being election time and with such high stakes, it’s very important for us to remember that we are empaths. And as empaths we are most likely feeling into the hearts and emotions of others, and especially our fellow empaths.

Practice repeating “Not mine!” in your head if you feel an intense or unknown emotion come up and you can’t tell if it’s yours. If the emotion is yours, it will stick around for you to heal and process. If not, recognizing that it’s not yours shines a light on it and “casts it out” for you. If you still aren’t sure, burn some sage, or spend time meditating.

The card pulled for this week is Waxing Crescent: Awareness. There is an important lesson for us each to learn this month. Let your emotions teach you something. Listen to them, journal them, observe them.

It’s very important to not run from your feelings. Practice listening to your emotions, and see if you can find the lesson you are needing to learn. Trace your emotion back to its root, and ask yourself how you can heal it from your new perspective. Create a New Moon intention around what you find.

First Quarter Moon in Aquarius

The First Quarter Moon takes place in the sign of Aquarius on the 15th of November. Aquarius is the sign of the water-bearer. Because of this, it is often confused to be a water sign, but in ancient times, she was known as the knowledge-bearer.

When the First Quarter Moon is in Aquarius we ourselves feel a greater thirst for knowledge and answer seeking. As the moon grows in the sky you might feel your desire for learning or reading increase. The card pulled for this week is Waxing Crescent: Transform. What greater way to transform yourself than by learning something new.

Use this First Quarter Moon in Aquarius to do just that. Spirit answers in mysterious ways. Answers or truths you’ve been needing may be tucked away in the passage of a book, or in an online article you accidentally stumble on. Listen to a TED talk, or find a new youtube channel that peaks your interest. Follow your curiosity and allow it to transform you!

New Moon in Scorpio Spirit de la lune Mercury Retrograde

Mercury goes retrograde on the 17th.

Mercury is the planet of communication, and intellect. When it goes retrograde, it it ends up spending extra time in a certain sign.

Mercury is wanting us to take our extra time too. Mercury always emphasizes something in our life when it goes retrograde. So be aware.

This time the retrograde takes place in Sagittarius. Fire signs typically have to do with our creative ventures, projects and our passions. So instead of being overly eager to mark anything as “done” double check your work first. There may be something you are missing.

Full Moon in Taurus

The Full Moon in Taurus takes place on the 22nd of November, just as the colder weather begins to set in for much of the Northern Hemisphere.

Storms and winds are more likely a few days before and after the New and Full Moons, so this Full Moon will bring colder winds to many of us in experiencing the autumn season.

Full Moons are also a time of completion and fulfillment. Sometimes they mark a harvest, or a reason to celebrate and gather with friends. But sometimes they can mark the completion of a personal cycle, or a lesson learned that is all our own. Insights will be available at this time that can help you overcome your obstacles.

This Full Moon is in the Loving sign of Taurus and the card pulled for this phase is Waxing Gibbous: Surrender. We are being asked to surrender to the lessons we’ve learned and finally let go. Use this Full Moon to truly let go of what’s been holding you back. Don’t forget to check back for the Full Moon for our Full Moon Ritaul!

The last quarter moon is in the sign of Leo on the 29th of November.

Last Quarter Moon in Virgo

The Last Quarter Moon takes place in the signs of both Leo and Virgo (depending on location and time) on the 29th of November.

The Last Quarter Moon marks the turning point in the month where we feel our own energy wind back down a bit as we prepare for the New Moon once again. This is a time for release and in many ways self care is needed for that to happen.

Take this week to reflect and ground your energy. A lot has been going on this month. The Waning Cycle and Virgo are both Earth elements, asking us to take a break from all of these intense emotions we have been going through. The card pulled for this phase is the Crone Moon: Deep Wisdom, reminding us that the veil is still thin and our ancestors and Spirit are near. Ground, meditate and prepare.

New Moon in Scorpio Energy Reading | Spirit de la Lune

November is a harbinger of transformation. By the end of it, you truly might feel like bundling up and hibernating for a bit.

Give yourself the time and space to nurture your body and soul as we embark into the darker colder months. Enjoy the season of transformation.

Happy New Moon! Don’t forget to charge your decks and crystals tonight under the New Moon. Make an intention and set it on your altar under this Powerful night!

Lunar Blessings!

2018 Crone Moon: Ritual in a Jar And Creating Sacred Space

Happy Full Crone Moon!

This Full Moon takes place in the earthy sign of Taurus, a sign of strength and endurance. In many ways, you may feel your own patience and inner strength being tested. Remember to stay grounded and remain rational during this time.

Venus is still retrograde in Scorpio and is opposite this Full Moon in Taurus. Taurus holds energy of new growth and life- while Scorpio holds energy of darkness and death. Venus, the planet of love, represents our relationships, with others and ourselves. The Moon represents our emotions and intuition.

This means there may be some changes and shifts going on in our relationships, and Scorpio means the transformation may feel chaotic. It’s important to practice patience and forgiveness with others right now. Taurus is also known as the Lover, so remember to not only stay grounded, but in your heart space.

For tonight’s Full Moon we are keeping this blog post pretty simple. We are currently celebrating new life with the arrival of Autumn, Marissa’s new baby, and simultaneously stepping into the season of death as with the arrival of the season Autumn. There is a lot of change happening right now!

A good way to stay grounded in times of change and chaos is to keep an altar or a dedicated sacred space in your home.

This is a place where you can set your intentions, perform rituals, and charge your decks, crystals, or other sacred items.

You can light candles on your altar each day to remind you of the intentions you set for the new moon.

Putting your altar in a central location in your home will help you notice and remember your intention as you walk past it each day.

Burn Sage for clearing and cleansing. Light candles for dedication and intention setting. Sweetgrass is burned for calling in matriarchy energy and enhancing love, and Palo Santo is burned for healing and purification.

Decorate your altar by placing items or pictures on it that are important or meaningful to you! There is no wrong way to set up your altar.

Change up your altar often to keep the energy and intention is fresh. A seasonal altar is a great way to connect with the current sabbats and seasons.

Tonight we also have a magickal ritual to share with you from Ritual in a Jar! They sent us their Clairvoyance Ritual in a Jar just in time for the thinning of the veils. The jar has everything you need to perform the ritual... The candles, oils, sage, and herbs... The aroma when you open the jar is divine.

Photo Oct 08, 8 36 06 AM.jpg

This is a wonderful ritual to awaken your third-eye, connect to your intuition, and perform before any divination practices you do to really enhance them. I was personally over 40 weeks pregnant and my intention for the ritual in the jar was to find out exactly when my baby girl would be born!

The ritual comes with a beautiful scroll and gives you step by step instructions to perform the ritual to enhance your intuition.

After I used the Ritual in a Jar, I used our Spirit de la Lune deck and pulled the specific upcoming moon phases and moon signs for the week coming up. I used the third-eye talisman from the jar to choose the cards. The two cards I ended up pulling were the Waxing Gibbous: Courage and the Aquarius card. October 19th...

IMG_3480.jpg

The day I was actually scheduled to be induced and the moon sign Aquarius. October 19th did end up being the day we had our little moon child, and the day started off in Aquarius, but she ended up being a Moon in Pisces like her mama! I loved that the Ritual in a Jar gave me space to clear my head and open my mind since I had been constantly worrying and fretting about going into labor!

It may be a little too late to try a ritual jar out for this Full Moon, but it’s still a great time to set up your altar and perform a ritual to connect with Spirit. The veil is thinning as we get closer to Samhain, and it’s a great time for connecting with our ancestors and spirits!
