Dandelion Divination & Tea Leaf Reading Ritual | Full Honey Moon in Sagittarius

Happy Full Honey Moon!

Tonight’s Full Moon shines bright in the expansive and optimistic sign of Sagittarius. Our days continue to grow longer and warmer here in the Northern Hemisphere as we get closer and closer to the Summer solstice happening later this week.

As the days get brighter and busier, it’s more important than ever to take the time to appreciate the sweeter things in life.

The Honey Moon is known by many names in various cultures… it’s sometimes referred to as the Strawberry Moon, Rose Moon, and the Mead Moon. The one thing that each of these names has in common… sweetness!

Spirit de la Lune Honey Moon in Sagittarius | Dandelion Divination Tea

This happy and bright Full Moon is reminding you to savor the sweetness that surrounds you right now. Look at how far you’ve come so far and celebrate!

This Full Moon in Sagittarius has us looking at the bigger picture with greater ease than ever before. While making detailed future plans might be hard right now, looking at your present situation or even your past under the light of Sagittarius can help you realize just how far you have come in the last year or even 6 months!

This Full Moon is also being influenced by expansive Jupiter and dreamy Neptune which brings us a heightened sense of abundance, brighter optimism and enhanced intuition for the rest of June.

During this Full Moon, our intuition and divination skills will be enhanced. Sagittarius ramps up our curiosity and has us wanting to explore our inner worlds with a fiery enthusiasm. Keep an open mind this week and get to know yourself and others better. There is a combination of wanting new adventures and connections, while also coming to know yourself better.


The Honey Moon is also associated with the Honey Bee! Humans and honey bees have had a long and close relationship where we rely on each other immensely!

Many of our plants and the foods that we eat depend on bees to pollinate them so that they can reproduce and create new life. Our dependence on our honey bee friends goes way back! The honey bee has long been known as messengers between worlds. It even used to be customary to inform household bees of big news or family deaths of the house.

Being messengers between the land of the dead and the land of the living, they are also thought to be great aids for divination and seeing beyond the veil. Using their honey in spell work and magick cooking adds a level of sweetness and grace to your intentions.

Dandelion Divination and Tea Leaf Reading  | Full Honey Moon in Sagittarius

For this Full Honey Moon we wanted to honor our enhanced intuition whiling working with honey bee magick for a Divination Tea Leaf Reading Ritual.

Tea leaf reading is also known as Tasseomancy. It originated in the middle east during the medieval period, but has spread and branched out quite a bit. There are now many versions of this divination and scrying method.

This is a technique that anyone can learn to do! Tea leaf reading involves seeing patterns and symbols in tea leaves, then interpreting the symbols… very similar to tarot and oracle card reading.

You just need your intuition, imagination & some tea!

You can use any loose leaf tea or herb you want to for this ritual, but we are using dandelion and mint for tonight’s tea leaf reading.

We chose to use dandelion because it’s a very simple and overlooked plant that is likely already in your yard… and it has psychic enhancing abilities!

Dandelion Divination and Tea Leaf Reading  | Full Honey Moon in Sagittarius

Many think this plant to be a weed… and while it CAN be invasive, the benefits of dandelions outweigh any annoyances. You can use every single part of the plant… and as long as no weed killer has been sprayed on it, it won’t do any damage to you or the bees!

Picking the flowers and leaves off dandelions will actually promote new growth for the plant... Taking an entire plant out of the ground (root and all) will leave space for another dandelion plant to grow in it’s place!

Utilizing these plants instead of spraying them with weed-killer or mowing over them is the best thing we can do for our plant and bee friends!

Dandelion Divination and Tea Leaf Reading  | Full Honey Moon in Sagittarius

Dandelion is associated with the element of air and the planet Mercury. It’s a great plant for enhancing intuition, divination and even channeling or communing with spirits. Dandelion can help strengthen your psychic abilities and enhance your intuition.

Not only is Dandelion a great plant for your soul, it’s a great plan for the body too! Dandelion can help boost your immune system, improves liver function and protect the liver. It can help with weight loss and aid in digestion, fights cancer, strengthens the kidney and bladder and the bones! It’s full of Vitamin A and has high amounts of fiber.

Don’t let this precious plant go to waste assuming it’s a just a weed!

(Dandelion tea has very few side effects. Certain individuals might experience an allergic reaction when drinking this tea or using dandelion. If you suffer from allergies to the live dandelion plant or other plants in the Asteraceae family, use caution! Dandelion root tea may also cause contraindications with certain medications—especially diuretics. It might be a good idea to ask your doctor before drinking herbal teas if you take any medications.)

Dandelion Flower Tea Recipe

Dandelion flowers make for a delicious warm or iced tea. Add in a little mint or lime and this sweet tangy tea will strengthen you from the inside out!

Dandelion Divination and Tea Leaf Reading  | Full Honey Moon in Sagittarius

Step 1: Harvest Your Dandelions

Gather about 10-20 dandelions from your garden. Choose dandelions in a place where you know hasn’t had any weed killers or pesticides sprayed on them. Be sure to thank Mother Earth and the Bees for providing us with this plant as you take what you need! Don’t worry about not leaving many flowers behind… picking the heads off will inspire the plants to grow new flowers!

Step 2: Wash and Rinse

Remove all the stems and leaves and place the yellow flowers in a strainer. Rinse well using cool water.

Step 3: Make Your Tea

In order to read tea leaves you will need some finer ground leaves or plant material to work with. Using your fingers, “unwrap” the yellow petals of about 5-6 dandelions and place in your cup. Shred up some mint leaves or any other herbs you feel like drinking and reading with. You can put larger flowers and leaves in your tea up as well.

Dandelion Divination and Tea Leaf Reading  | Full Honey Moon in Sagittarius

Step 4: Steep then Strain

Add 1 cup of hot or boiling water to your tea cup and let steep for 5 to 8 minutes.

This is a great time to come up with an intention or a question to use as your guide for your reading!

Once your tea is a nice yellow, strain away any large flowers and leaves. I chose to keep some petals and leaves in my tea so I could read them later.

You are free to strain your tea to your preference, but big flowers could make it hard to sip!


Dandelion Divination and Tea Leaf Reading  | Full Honey Moon in Sagittarius

Step 5: Sweeten and Sip

Sweeten your tea using local honey. Local honey from your neighborhood bees contains many enzymes, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that your body needs.. because the honey is made locally, this can even help prevent seasonal allergies from sneaking up on you!

Light a candle and intentionally sip your tea.

This is a great time to slow down and appreciate the sweeter things in life! The Honey Bee reminds us to not get too lost in the productivity of the day to day life.

Mindfully enjoy your tea. Use the candle as an anchor so you don’t mindlessly slip away or start working on something new while you enjoy your tea!

Dandelion Divination and Tea Leaf Reading  | Full Honey Moon in Sagittarius

Step 6 – Swirl and Drain

When the tea is all but gone and there is a small amount of liquid at the bottom of the cup, swirl the liquid around the cup a few times.

Many people prefer to swirl 3 times in a clockwise motion, but there are no true rules. Follow your intuition on what works best for you.

Leave your cup upside down on your saucer for a few moments so the rest of the tea can drain.

Reading The Leaves

Dandelion Divination and Tea Leaf Reading  | Full Honey Moon in Sagittarius

Pick up the cup and point the cup handle towards your right. This will establish top/bottom and past and future. Symbols which appear to the left of the handle relate to the past, and those on the right relate to the future.

Look carefully at the tea leaves for any shapes or symbols that might pop out at you. You might have to blur your eyes and see what basic shapes come out first.

Common symbols include hearts, birds, animals, cups, boxes, crosses, arrows, suns, moons and trees, but you could see anything! Your intuition and imagination will guide you. The tea leaves are just a tool to enhance your intuition even further.

Here is a list of symbols you might see and what they mean, and below are two reference images you can use… again use your intuition! If you don’t want to use a guide, you don’t have to!

Dandelion Divination and Tea Leaf Reading  | Full Honey Moon in Sagittarius

You don’t have to use a fancy tea reading tea cup either! A plain tea cup and saucer work perfectly for both beginners and professionals alike.

It’s all up to your intuition and imagination, and with this Full Honey Moon in Sagittarius, your intuition will be extra sharp for the next few days. Full Moon energy can be felt days before and after the lunar event, so be sure to take a walk sometimes this week and gather up your dandelions! The bees will thank you and aid you in the process of learning something new about yourself.

Happy Full Moon!

Opportunities and possibilities abound this month beginning with this New Moon in the curious and creative sign of Gemini.

New Moon in Gemini 2019 Honey Moon Energy report

A New Moon is a time of new beginnings and starting a brand new chapter for the month ahead. This is a great time for setting intentions, and the curious and expansive sign of Gemini can help you think of just how to convey your intention and get your message across or fully commit to a new routine.

New Moon energy is also the perfect time for clearing or cleansing your home, crystals, decks and even yourself of any old habits or energy that might be blocking you from reaching your goals! Use this time to call in what you are wanting to create in the future.

This New Moon in Gemini opens the gateway to the Honey Moon cycle; a time of both productivity & sweetness.

New Moon in Gemini 2019 Honey Moon Energy report

Spring is in full swing here in the Northern Hemisphere. Birds are chirping and flowers bloom while the bees are buzzing all around, collecting pollen for their honey. We are beginning to notice the growth blooming around us and how it is all connected.

Connection seems to be an important subject this month. The New Moon wants us to socialize and connect with others like us, and the Honey Moon reminds us of the Hive and to help others and be open to receiving help ourselves.

Don’t be afraid to ask for help this month, and allow others to open the door for you or give you the tools and resources you might need to achieve your goals!

New Moon in Gemini

New Moon in Gemini 2019 Honey Moon Energy report

The New Moon in Gemini this week is going to open so many possibilities for us! The sign of Gemini is so versatile and curious… it’s a great time for starting anything new, especially something that that involves studies, research or anything else that gets your mind buzzing. it’s important to not start TOO many things right now!

But, expect communication to freely flow this week.

Mercury enters Cancer on the 4th shortly after the New Moon. This will improve your memory and enhance your craving for intellectual connections… emotions may predominate your choices this week so be sure to check in with your intuition and body before acting.

Avoid taking on too much or over committing yourself to too many projects this week. Gemini/Mercury loves to connect and be of help others so be careful to not self sacrifice and overwhelm yourself with the problems of others. It’s important to find the balance between helping others and being helped this week.

Your connection with others will be very important this week

Be open minded when it comes to setting your intentions for this month… You might not be able to do this alone. It’s perfectly okay to rely on others in order to get the things you need sometimes.

Ask your higher self and your guides to help put you in connection with the right people and places that will help you see the opportunities you need! Connections even from our past can open the right doors to future opportunities.

Venus enters Gemini on June 8th just before the First Quarter Moon which could cause us to face difficult or important decisions. Choice might be a big thing that comes up, so good communication within partnerships or anyone involved will be helpful during this time!

New Moon in Gemini 2019 Honey Moon Energy report

The card pulled for this week is Waxing Gibbous: Connect. With so much on the blog already about connecting with others, it truly feels like an important topic this week to see it pulled for the weekly card! This New Moon is a great time to set some strong intentions and brainstorm all the different ways you can achieve your goals, but don’t forget how important asking for help can be! Set intentions to be connected to the right people, or share your ideas with others and get input from those you trust. Ask for help if you need it and make sure there is mutual energy exchange. Connect with your friends and family this week… There just might be someone out there who is longing to hear from you!


First Quarter in Virgo

New Moon in Gemini 2019 Honey Moon Energy report

The First Quarter moon takes place in the sign of Virgo on June 9th. Virgo is the sign of the healer and motivates us towards cleansing and organizing both our mental and physical spaces so we can grow and heal properly.

When the Waxing Moon is in Virgo we feel motivated towards building routine and paying extra attention to the small details. The Waxing Moon energy in of itself motives us to want to plan and look ahead. Use this Virgo energy to make a detailed steps to take later this week.

Feelings of restlessness could be high this when Venus moves into the sign of Gemini. This will have you wanting to infuse intellectual stimulation into your interests, daily pursuits and even love life. The Sun opposes Jupiter this week which can cloud your judgement. The temptation to overindulge is high this week, so be careful with what you are saying “yes” to.

For those that usually restrict themselves from having fun or inviting in pleasure into their lives, this week is a good one to allow yourself to indulge! Stay in and do your favorite activities at home… or go out and enjoy your time with your friends if you feel called to it! Set the intention to invite in more pleasure and abundance and then take a step towards achieving it.

New Moon in Gemini 2019 Honey Moon Energy report

The card pulled for this phase is Waxing Gibbous: Focus. Where is your focus this week? Where has your mind naturally been drawn to? Remember,”where focus goes, energy flows.” The Waxing Moon motivates us and stokes our inner fire… but that fire needs to be tended and watched or it might smother itself out… or worse run wild and cause destruction! This week, while the moon is waxing towards Full, try to harness your focus! If you are having trouble finding an area of focus, sit back and observe yourself. Watch where you naturally focus your energy is this week and see how this invites in either chaos or growth.


Full Honey Moon in Capricorn

Intuition and inspiration are available to you daily but only if you know how to listen and be open to it.

The Full Moon on the 17th of June in Sagittarius and Capricorn will help you swing that door wide open to help you expand into new territories within yourself.

The Full Moon in Sagittarius has us feeling optimistic and open minded… we love to discuss and explore new ideas with like minded friends at this time. This energy is all about expansion. You might be feeling adventurous and ready to try new things… while planning is fun and essential while in Sagittarius, you might find it hard to get these plans in motion right now!

The Sun is opposing Sagittarius right now which might bring up even more conflict when it comes to getting these plans into action. Instead, enjoy the fun part of the planning process and worry about the details later.

The Moon spends about a day and a half in each sign and lunar energy can be felt for up to 3 days depending on your location, so many of you will feel some of this Full Honey Moon in Capricorn too. Capricorn is all about discipline and getting those plans into action. So be sure to enjoy and relish in that planning stage because the Moon in Capricorn is going to help you find the clarity and discipline you need to get things done.

New Moon in Gemini 2019 Honey Moon Energy report

The Full Honey Moon reminds us to connect to our tribe/hive. A honey bee is nothing without it’s Hive. This Full Moon with the Summer Solstice so near is the perfect time for gathering with your friends and family. The Full Moon is a time of illumination, but it is also a time of fulfillment and celebration.

Summer Solstice on June 21st!

The Sun enters Cancer on June 21st beginning the Season of Summer here on the Northern Hemisphere and Winter for the Southern Hemisphere.

As the Sun moves into Cancer, we feel a greater need to get in touch with ourselves. A need to focus on the home and feel safe and secure might become dominant for many. This a great time to tend to your garden and water your plants to ensure future growth. You might feel called towards staying home and focusing on yourself. Answer that call!

This week might not feel like the best for physical travel, but opportunity to travel within and expand yourself into new realms of possibility are opening up. On June 21st, Neptune goes retrograde in Pisces which can really cause us to go within to the dream world.

New Moon in Gemini 2019 Honey Moon Energy report

Allow yourself to get lost in your daydreams! This is important place when it comes to creativity and manifesting your desires.

Tune in to your planner and color in the Full Moon Moondala with intention to help you harness your emotions and subconscious energy this Full Honey Moon!

A month like this has potential to fly by… so be sure to stop and smell the flowers and taste some of the sweet honey life has to offer! Celebrate where you are at and just how far you have come and don’t forget to check back with us during the week of the full moon for our Full Moon Ritual post!

New Moon in Gemini 2019 Honey Moon Energy report

The card pulled for this phase is Waxing Crescent: Expansion. This Full Moon and Neptune retrograde happening this week can help expand us in many ways.The Full Moon illuminates the night sky this week and as she does, she also shines a light into our inner selves. Neptune’s influence on us causes us to feel flighty and somewhat lost in our daydreams. Allow yourself that time to imagine and daydream! Pay attention to your sleeping and waking dreams this week. This week holds many lessons and opportunities towards expansion, but many of these will be found within!


Last Quarter Moon in Aries

New Moon in Gemini 2019 Honey Moon Energy report

The Last Quarter takes place on the 25th of June in the fiery sign of Aries. Aries will help motivate you towards finishing up any last minute plans you might have this week.

A Waning Moon can often scatter our energy or motivation, but the Last Quarter Moon in Aries can inspire you to find that inner strength and will power to finish that action plan from the First Quarter Moon.

Be sure it’s detailed enough to follow!

It might seem hard to concentrate as the week continues… Neptune went retrograde on the 21st which can make life feel a little off… you might feel a bit out of touch with reality this week.

Those who are extra sensitive might find themselves mentally drifting and empaths will need to reinforce their protection shields or clear their energy often.

On June 27th, Mercury enters Leo which can cause some fiery communication… The need to express oneself and learn how to convey an idea to others will feel important. Leo can help you promote your ideas so you can share with them others around you, you might need to think outside the box but the creative answers will come to you!

This week, as Venus squares Neptune, you might find it difficult to trust the intentions of others. Focus on yourself this week and what you can creatively express. Avoid getting distracted by people who are not on the same wavelength as you.

Your creativity might really be highlighted this week… so don’t be afraid to unleash it and look for the messages that your higher self wants to reveal to you.

New Moon in Gemini 2019 Honey Moon Energy report

The card pulled for this week is Waning Gibbous: Guidance. There are messages from Spirit all around you. Your guides will always communicate and deliver lessons in a way that you are able to understand. As the Moon wanes in the sky this week you will begin to feel drawn inward as your intuition begins to speak to you. Look for the lessons your higher self may have for you. Be open to how you share and receive guidance this week… Remember that it’s okay to ask for help from others. Reach out to those in your circle, you yourself might be an unknowing teacher to others this week.

New Moon in Gemini 2019 Honey Moon Energy report

Spring is all around for us. This Honey Moon promises to be a productive one where we can expand out connection with ourselves and with others.

Our connection with others is always important, so don’t forget to reach out to your hive. The Earth’s ecosystem relies on each other in order to bloom and grow. We too must rely on others to ensure our healthy growth.

The days are getting longer and warmer as we head towards the Summer Solstice. We have more energy than ever to pursue our dreams and goals this month.

Connecting with others and making a detailed action plan is the way to go as we head into this Honey Moon Cycle!

DIY Moon Board Creation

Full+Flower+moon.jpeg

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!

Spirit de la Lune DIY Moon board
Spirit de la Lune DIY Moon board

What you need:

  • Black poster board or Cork board (you can use chalk paint to paint it black)

  • Washi tape

  • metallic pens/markers (to show up on the black board)

  • Scissors

  • Modpodge, glue, or tacks/pins

  • scissors

  • Magazines

  • glitter/stickers, anything you want to make it pretty and unique!

  • Your Moon Sign Compass or Moon compass from your Tune to the Moon Planner

 
Spirit de la Lune DIY Moon board

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!

Spirit de la Lune DIY Moon board

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…

Spirit de la Lune DIY Moon board

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..

Spirit de la Lune DIY Moon board

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…

Spirit de la Lune DIY Moon board

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

Spirit de la Lune DIY Moon board

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.

We hope you enjoyed this DIY and we hope you make your own! Please share pictures with us!

Full Super Planting Moon Crystal Grid Creation

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.

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!

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.

Spirit de la Lune Full Planting Moon Crystal Grid Ritual

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!

 
New Moon in Pisces | Planting Moon Energy Reading
 

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.

Each month using the Moon as our guide, we look to the Stars with our Spirit de la Lune decks & planners to create the New Moon Energy Reading to better prepare for what is ahead.

New Moon in Pisces | Planting Moon Energy Reading

...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

IMG_8318.JPG

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.

New Moon in Pisces | Planting Moon Energy Reading

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.

New Moon in Pisces | Planting Moon Energy Reading

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

New Moon in Pisces | Planting Moon Energy Reading

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

New+Moon+in+Pisces+%7C+Planting+Moon+Energy+Reading

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.

New Moon in Pisces | Planting Moon Energy Reading

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

New Moon in Pisces | Planting Moon Energy Reading

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.
