Happy Full Moon lovelies!
We want to share a fun project with you that you can begin for the next Moon cycle! It is what we call a “Moon Board” similar to a vision board or mood board, but with a Lunar twist of course!
We will show you how to create it and work with it throughout the Moon phases to really amplify, tune in, and manifest your intentions and goals. Get your scissors and glue ready and let’s begin!
What you need:
Black poster board or Cork board (you can use chalk paint to paint it black)
metallic pens/markers (to show up on the black board)
Modpodge, glue, or tacks/pins
glitter/stickers, anything you want to make it pretty and unique!
First divide your board into 4 even sections with the washi tape or metallic pens. The black board is optional, but I highly recommend it because it truly makes everything pop and it looks very Lunar ;)
Each section represents the 4 main turnings of the Moon cycle: the New Moon week, the First Quarter/Waxing Moon week; the Full Moon Week; and the Last Quarter/Waning week. Feel Free to write down each date for the four turnings in each section and what sign they are in. Or you can keep it blank so you can keep reusing this! That is also why I also suggest a cork/bulletin board. Either is great! You can always find the dates for the moon cycle on our New Moon energy reports, or the Tune to the Moon planner! But if you have a moon app that works too!
Secondly, put your Moon Compass in the center of the board. We always align our New Moon with the east quadrant and our Moon Compass is the same. So the moon phases on the compass should align with your Moon phase sections on the board.
A Moon Compass helps you track your energy or intentions daily with the moon phases. The more you track your energy the more you can see patterns emerge so you can understand your unique flow of energy better. We have a free Moon Compass you can download here or you can use your Tune to the Moon Planner. Marissa also has a Lunar e-book that teaches you all about Moon charting!
Please note: The Moon Compass will be opposite for the Southern Hemisphere, so create your quadrants according to your Moon Compass so they all align.
Now that you have your Moon Board prepped and ready for the next Moon cycle, read below how to use The Moon Board during each Moon phase!
When the Moon is New…
Now that you have placed your Moon Compass… on the actual date of the New Moon for the Moon cycle up ahead you can use this board and write your intentions and begin to track your energy daily by coloring the moon slices!
Before you begin using your Moon board, think about your intentions and goals for this next moon cycle. Grab your journal and answer the following questions:
How do you want to feel?
What do you want to accomplish?
What do you want to set into motion?
What do you want to release?
What lights you up right now?
What is your New Moon intention/goal/desire?
What is your vision for this Moon Cycle?
Begin to scour your magazines and find images and words that align with your vision. Have fun! Put on some music and ignite your creativity!
In the New Moon Quadrant write your intentions and glue your images and words into this section creating your first mini vision board!
Other things you can do too during the New Moon phase/week:
Pull a tarot/oracle card for each quadrant… what is the current energy showing you? What does it reveal about your next step?
Keep you moon board somewhere you can see everyday and interact with it everyday by coloring in your moon slices and reading your intentions out loud
Choose a crystal for this week and program it with your intentions
Carry this crystal with you during the day and sleep with it at night
Before you go to bed each night this week, smudge your bed/your aura and ask your Higher Self to reveal any messages you need to hear during your dreams
When the Moon is Waxing..
The First Quarter Moon phase is all about action, momentum, and ignition… but not just any kind of action. Inspired action is key!
Everyday during this week, do this mini inspired activation meditation using your Moon board and a candle. It doesn’t have to be long, just long enough for you to get tuned in and spark your inspiration.
Sit in front of your Moon board, light your candle and have your journal ready. Invite your Higher self, your guides, the Universe to sit with you. When you are ready, ask yourself any of these questions:
What is my Soul calling me to do today?
How can I be of service today?
What is the message I need to share today?
What am I inspired to do today?
Notice, the questions are focusing on TODAY. Stay in the present moment during this phase. You have already focused on the bigger picture during the New Moon week, now it is time to trust your intuition and begin where you are at. The time is NOW.
Sit with these questions and gaze into the flame. Write any messages you receive and when you feel ready, read your journal entry and choose something you feel called to do.
Write one inspired action on your Moon board and put your focus and energy into this one next step.
As you keep flowing with this exercise you may want to add more than one step a day, but just start with one inspired action for now, so you don’t get overwhelmed.
If you do this everyday during the First Quarter week, you should have about 6-8 inspired actions steps you actually took this week! That is amazing! You are amazing!
Other things you can do during the First Quarter phase/week:
Feel free to draw a card for each day to gain more clarity for each inspired action
Is there a crystal that can help you stay motivated and inspired this week?
Does each inspired action have a crystal to work with?
Feel free to pin/tape you other to-do lists in this section, this is a time to get sh** done!
Also feel free to add anymore images and words/affirmation to this section
Keep moon charting daily!
When the Moon is Full…
The Full Moon illuminates everything in your life. She illuminates the good, the bad, and everything in between. Now is the time to cultivate gratitude in your life and focus on the blessings. Open your heart to compassion, forgiveness, grace, and love.
Surrender to the flow.
This week with your Moon board, create a new kind of list. I gratitude and blessings list. Have a glass of water and your journal handy and answer these questions each day:
What am I grateful for today?
What I accomplishing?
What blessings have I received this day?
What is opening my heart?
What is my intuition guiding me to do?
What am I loving about myself right now?
Answer those questions and write a couple of the most meaningful ones in the Full Moon quadrant. When it is the Full Moon, take your glass of water and charge it with all the things you wrote on your Moon Board. Hold your glass heart level and repeat aloud what you wrote. Let the water charge under the Full Moon and drink this beautiful Moon-charged elixir the next morning!
Other things you can do during the Full Moon phase/week:
Try one of the Spirit de la Lune spreads created for that exact Full Moon (you can find it in the guidebook)
Place a rose quartz of clear quartz in your water to amplify the energy!
You can also take you charged moonwater and put it in your bath instead
Color in the Full Moon Moondala in the Tune to the Moon planner!
Also feel free to add anymore images and words/affirmation to this section
Keep moon charting daily!
When the Moon is Waning
The Moon cycle is winding down and all the energy you have built up and created during the Moon cycle is now coming back down to earth. This means you could begin seeing your goals and intentions coming to fruition and completion, or it is time to release them and let them go and learn from them.
This week get your journal out again, and choose a dark or black stone to help you release and let go of this Moon Cycle. Answer the questions below:
What did you complete this Moon cycle?
Did you complete your intention?
Did this Moon cycle progressed as you envisioned it would?
Did your intention change or shift?
What did you learn?
What are you letting go of?
What are you looking forward to?
Write at least one thing you are letting go of each day on your Moon board is the Last Quarter quadrant. Take your dark stone and ask it to help you release whatever you wrote down. Lay it out under the moonlight on the earth each night this week. IT is import to place it on the earth because Mother Earth will be absorbing this energy and transmuting it for you. Place the stone on the Moon Board during the day.
Other things you can do during the Waning phase/week:
Practice grounding meditations sitting on the earth under the moonlight
Make a list of everything you are letting go of and in it to the board, later you can burn it in a fireproof container
Get to bed earlier and focus on rest
Prep your next Moon Board!
Keep moon charting daily! PLEASE NOTE: The Moon compass may miss the last 2-3 days of the Moon cycle… this is the Dark Moon phase and a time to rest and just be.

Happy New Moon in Aries!
Happy Full Planting Moon and Equinox Blessings!
This Full Super Moon is the Planting Moon in the sign of Libra, a sign that loves balance and structure… it is also taking place on the Equinox. This Full Moon holds potent energy!
We are all experiencing a new shift in the energy with a new season ahead of us! The Equinox seasons are a time of balance, and we thought this would be a wonderful time to teach you how to create a crystal grid to help you align your energy to your intentions and desires, bringing you into the balance with your purpose and truth.
Putting different crystals and stones together in geometric patterns activates the crystalline energies of each crystal and generates a beautiful union of their energies. A crystal grid channels a vortex of hyper-focused intention and pure healing energy from Gaia. Crystal grids are beautiful, creative, and very fun and meditative to make. And when aligned with the Moon phases (this Full Moon!) you can learn to work with the energies of the cosmos and with Gaia to truly manifest your desires in the physical realm.
Intention is key.
First, you must know your intention for your crystal grid. Why do you want to make a crystal grid? What needs healing energy right now? What needs to be activated within you? What feelings do you wish to invoke with this grid? Choose your crystals accordingly. This process alone will take intention and research. You do not need to buy all new stones to make your crystal grid – start with what you have and follow your intuition. You can make your grid as large and complex, or as small and simple as you wish. Do what feels good to you.
We always begin with the center stone -the core essence of your grid that gets programmed by the surrounding crystals. This can be a cluster, generator point, a sphere, a specimen, or even a small tumbled stone - but it typically is different than the rest. The center could even be a candle, tarot card, an affirmation, statue, or talisman you want to be charged with the crystal energies. You can use a Moondala card from the Spirit de la Lune deck!
If you are having a hard time choosing your intention, draw a tarot or oracle card and place it at the center. You can place the stones over your card or spread. Choose as many other stones as you want to go around your center stone that have complimenting energies. Having multiple of the same stone will build that specific energy. Having a variety of stones will each add their own unique vibrational signature. The choice is always up to you and what you have on hand. There is no wrong way of doing this!
Program your crystals.
Before you lay each stone, (starting with the center stone and working outward) hold each stone (you can hold each one individually, or multiple in your hands) near your heart and pour your intention into it. Visualize pure crystal energy coming up from the earth into your body, and pure stardust galactic energy from the Heavens pouring through your crown – let both energies meet at your heart center and pour into your stones. Use all your senses, and focus on your intentions and the feelings you wish to invoke. The crystals will hold these energies. I personally believe all stones are programmable. They want to connect with us and help us on our journey. Each stone you have has already chosen you too. Remember that!
Setting up Your Crystal Grid
Now set up your grid from the center stone and moving outward in a clockwise motion. Remember to set up your grid with humbleness and reverence. We are activating the crystalline grid of the earth, our bodies, and other realms while creating this powerful vortex-energy. When creating crystal grids you are shifting the grids of the old paradigms and creating new ones! This is very powerful earth magick! The Flower of Life mandala is a great sacred geometric map to align your grid with. Traditional grids are symmetric for even energy distribution, but as you create intuitively and work with your stones, create a design that appeals to you and your intentions. Think of it as a crystal mandala (or snowflake!) -no one will ever make this mandala ever again! Each stone and design is different -you are also activating the powerful and unique crystal healer within you and bringing your own vibe to this creation!
Activate your grid.
After laying each stone, take a crystal point and use it as a wand to activate the grid. If you have a traditional wand already, you can use that instead. Or simply use your dominant index finger. Begin and touch the center stone/object with your wand of choice, and from there touch the top crystal (twelve o’clock position) and moving clockwise, touch the next crystal (one o’clock), and then touch back to the center stone. Next, from the center stone touch the stone at one o’clock position then the two o’clock position, then back to the center, and so forth. You are drawing a line of energy and connecting each stone together. Think connect the dots, but always bringing the energy back to the center stone. Really visualize this line of energy you are creating through each crystal connection. What color is it? How does the energy feel? While you are doing this, infuse the grid with your intentions… What feelings and emotions do you want to program into the grid? Truly feel those emotions surface. Do you feel the vibration and aura of the grid growing and shifting? Are you feeling any different? Go around the grid at least once until you are back up to the top stone and connecting it back to the center. I personally prefer to go around in 3’s, but you can always go around as many times as you feel called to. But always complete the circle by ending at the top of the grid and back to center stone. Depending on how complex and layered your grid is, it could take a while! Stay focused and soften your gaze, opening your third-eye, and you may find yourself in a trance or peaceful meditative state! This is the basis for creating and activating a crystal grid!
If you created it on a tray or plate, place it under the Full Moon to charge it!
Keep the grid up as long as you feel you need it, or until you feel it has done what it needs to do. If animals or little’s knock it down, it usually is a good indicator that the crystal grid has shifted what it needs to shift and is no longer needed, or it is time to readjust it! However, if your intuition says otherwise, you can always reactivate it and set it up again (try to find a place it can be left undisturbed). See what unfolds and trust the crystals are assisting you in the way you need, not necessarily the way you would prefer. Crystal grids teach us to trust the process.

Happy New Moon!
This New Moon cycle carries great potential for change and will provide the fuel that we need to finalize and prepare our goals. There are plenty of planetary shifts ahead that hold potential for long term change.
During this cycle, Uranus moves into Taurus, and Mercury goes retrograde just days before the New Moon, while the Sun moves into Aries on the 20th, the day of the Full Supermoon!
Big shifts are happening in the sky… which means we too, will be experiencing opportunity for our own change. As above, so below.
...so grab a cup of coffee, your planner & deck and scroll down to see what this New Moon Cycle has in store for you!
New Moon in Pisces
This New Moon in Pisces takes place on the 6th of March. Pisces tends to increase our intuition and emotions as well as heighten our empathic abilities!
Emotions tend to predominate over logic and common sense, but it’s a great time to use your imagination to visualise and create your future!
Uranus moves into Taurus on the 6th of this month. Because Uranus is a slow moving planet, it’s lessons are big and hold lasting is effects. Uranus will be in Taurus until 2026.
New insights and big shifts are on their way to you with this planetary change. Uranus moving into Taurus might bring us new lessons that highlight our sense of security and home.
Uranus is a planet of change, while Taurus loves security and feelings of safety. Remember to be adaptable and as fluid as possible since these are somewhat opposing energies. Taurus IS about growth, but it relishes in organic and authentic growth, so go with the flow if you want to see change.
Mercury is retrograde from March 5th to the 28th of march in the sign of Pisces. This can cause communication issues. Now is a good time to backup your computers and hard drives and have some understanding for yourself and others. Miscommunications can happen easily so practice patience! Now is not a good time to sign any big contracts or make any big life changing decisions or purchases.
It IS a good time to set intentions, journal, and visualize the future you want. Mercury retrograde in Pisces highlights your intuition and third eye. It’s a great time to meditate and visualize what you want your future to look like. Sometimes Mercury retrograde slows us down so we can see then make the needed inner changes first.
The card pulled for this phase is Waxing Crescent: Create. With Mercury retrograde, it might feel like your goals and creations aren’t getting off the ground as fast as you would like! Instead of getting frustrated and trying to force things, go within. Mercury is retrograde in Pisces which opens your third eye and focuses on your intuition and imagination. Use this to your advantage by visualizing the future you are wanting to create for yourself. Hold yourself in that space for as long as you are able, to build momentum towards your goals. Your powers of creation begin in your imagination.
First Quarter Moon in Gemini
The moon reaches the First Quarter turning on the 14th of March in the sign of Gemini.
Gemini is a social and cheerful sign that favors both intellectual and social pursuits. It’s a great time to make your weekly to-do list and get started on whatever sparks your interest!
Remember, Gemini can also awaken our spontaneity, the scattering or variety of interests/projects could make it hard to get tangible results right now.
It will be important to focus this week if you want to get things done and see any physical results.
The card pulled for this week is Waxing Gibbous: Strength. The Waxing Moon phase this week is all about momentum and movement forward. The element is Fire and it truly can be felt during this Waxing Phase! As the seasons get ready to change, your inner fires will be stoked and you will feel your strength return in many ways. Don’t worry if you have had several projects waiting for your full attention. Try to just focus on what is in front of you for now and trust that you will have the strength to carry out your goals. Use this new wave of energy to lift you up to reach your highest potential.
Full PLanting Supermoon in Libra
The Full Supermoon takes place on March 20th in Libra/Virgo (depending on your location.)
This Full Planting Moon is a big one! This is the last of the 3 Supermoons and also takes place on the day of the Equinox!
The Northern Hemisphere enters the Spring season, while the Southern Hemisphere begins the season of Autumn.
Night and day share equal time right now and the Moon is in Libra, the sign of balance and harmony.
Check back here during the week of the full moon to read our Full Moon Ritual planned just for this dayl
When the seasons change, we too are presented with the opportunity for transformation.
The Wheel of The Year turns again with Aries the first sign of the zodiac, helping us plant the seeds for the months ahead. Aries, the Inspirer, ignites our inner fires and gets us excited about our future. The seeds are planted and we are gaining the energy we need to tend the garden.
With Mercury still retrograde, it might be hard to get anything really going, but you can use this time to find your inspiration and fuel your passions. The balance of the night and day can give us the perfect amount of logical introspection we need to make and finalize our goals.
The card pulled for this is week is Waning Gibbous: Devotion. What are you currently devoted to? Where do you direct most of your time and energy? Remember, where focus goes, energy flows. Keep your eyes on your goals and don’t be dismayed if it feels like things aren’t going your way… Remember that all things ebb and flow! Even during the darkest times it’s important to remain devoted to our personal principles and intentions if we truly want to see movement. The Sun moving into Aries at this time inspires our passion and conviction, so trust in the inevitable progress ahead of you. As the seasons change this week, you too will find the opportunity and potential to transform.
Last Quarter Moon in Capricorn
The Last Quarter Moon takes place in Capricorn on the 27th of March. Capricorn brings out our more disciplined and orderly side. Capricorn, an earth sign loves order and structure. The Last Quarter Moon phase is also the element of Earth increasing our need for security. The Moon is waning in the sky once again preparing for the next New Moon. Now is the time you may feel called to do the same.
With the Last Quarter Moon in Capricorn, this week a great time for tying up loose ends and finalizing plans and goals. Mercury goes direct on the 28th of March and we can finally take the steps towards the goals we have been visualizing towards all month.
The card pulled for this phase is Waning Gibbous: Listen. The Moon’s energy begins to spiral back down to Earth. This gradual descent inward does not mean her power is lessening. Inward energies are beginning to activate. It is time to listen to your inner wisdom. Intuition ebbs and flows, and while the moon is waning, our intuition grows. The more you listen, the clearer the messages will get. If you are having a hard time connecting to your intuition, try using divination tools. Oracle cards, pendulums, runes and crystals are great ways to activate your intuition. Using them often can help strengthen your abilities just like any muscle. Take time this week to truly listen to the voice within.

Happy Full Supermoon!
This Full Moon takes place on the 19th of February and is also a Supermoon!
This is the second Supermoon in a series of three, (we will have another supermoon in March!) but this Supermoon is also the biggest Supermoon of the year!
Pretty cool compared to February of 2018 having no full moon at all!
A Supermoon is when the moon orbits closest to the Earth, making the moon appear larger in the sky, thus amplifying the lunar energies and our emotions.
The moon is symbolic of our inner world, our intuition and our emotions, and this one is the Planting Moon according to the Spirit de la Lune deck. It’s important to take note of what you are “planting” right now!
This Supermoon in Virgo represents a very potent time for manifestation and achieving our goals… Especially with it taking place in 0º which holds total raw potential for new beginnings.
This Full Moon is adventurous and exciting holding lots of opportunities for change. Be on the lookout for good news and a sense of things coming together.
Our last New Moon post talked about answers coming and things finally falling into place… to help make that happen, we’ve put together a special ritual for this Full Moon!
We will be combining several earth elements into an intention oil and then using it to anoint an intention infused candle!
You can do this ritual on the days preparing for the full moon, or on the full moon! Preparing the oil a day ahead can be helpful, but it’s not needed!
Anointing Oil & Candle Ritual
You Will Need
Making the oil:
Using a paper funnel pour your carrier oil into your prepared jar.
Once the jar is about 3/4 full, add the herbs and essential oils of your choice. Be mindful as you add each ingredient. It’s important to remember your intent while you are making the oil!
When you have added all of the herbs and oils, add a crystal or two to the oil as a final intent and offering.
Give your bottle a good shake and cleanse and charge it under the moonlight surrounded by a crystal grid.
This oil can now be used for anything you want!
Lunar energy can be felt 3 days prior, and 3 days after the Lunar event, so you can make and charge this any time around the Full Moon and still be able to use it!
Depending on the carrier oil you used you can use it as a perfume or hand/lip moisturizer. You can use it to anoint crystals or other special objects. We created it for anointing candles for this Full Moon.
A powerful but simple way to solidify and add power to your intention is to create an intention candle!
Choose your candle color based on your intention or goal and come up with a simple word, affirmation, symbol or sigil that will help solidify your intent.
For this Full Moon Ritual, I carved the word “Home” into my candle to help me find the home that I’ve been looking for. I’m hoping that burning it on my altar with the vision board from last November will help give me that last push I need!
Using an altar knife or athame, carve into your word, symbol or phrase into your candle.
(You can use paint or glitter to help the carving stand out!)
Once the candle is carved and ready, anoint it with your intention oil.
There are several ways that you can anoint your candle and many schools of thought on it.
Some say that rubbing the oil from the top to the bottom of the candle will help bring in prosperity and growth, while rubbing the oil from the bottom up will help banish or get rid of something in your life.
There are no set rules on this, so as long as you rub the oil into the candle with intention, you are anointing it.
Burn the candle during the Full Moon on your altar. Remember to only burn under supervision and during ritual. This will keep your altar safe and your awareness focused on your intent.
You can use this candle to burn written intentions on paper later if you don’t want to burn it all in one night.
Leave your oil bottle and your candle out with your decks and crystals to charge under the Full Supermoon! Don’t forget you can reuse this oil for many things! It’s infused with potent Virgo energy and lots of intention so be sure to use it up.
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.
The Sun, Moon and Mercury are sextile Jupiter which brings in an even greater sense of optimism and positive thinking, making this month feel like a lucky one! There is potential for you to find the solutions to the problems you’ve been looking for if you remain open minded and focused throughout the month.
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!
New Moon in Aquarius
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
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!
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
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!
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
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.
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 are doing the best we can as a two woman team juggling full time jobs, self employment and motherhood… we really appreciate and need your understanding and love when things get rough.
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!
Don’t forget to set your intentions and cleanse your deck and crystals under this New Moon!
Be sure to check back here during the Full Moon for the Full Moon Ritual honoring the Seed Moon!
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.
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.
Herbs for Cancer:
Herbs for Leo:
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!)
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)
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
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
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?
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! 💖
