A Release Ritual with Stones

Photo by bantersnaps on Unsplash In our previous post — Create space for something wonderful... — I shared some thoughts on the Full Moon, that the energies of the moon and sky can "raise our awareness to our own transformation, to the shifts in perspective that have been whispering quietly just under the surface of our conscious minds…… Continue reading A Release Ritual with Stones

Create space for something wonderful on the Full Moon in Capricorn

How has this lunar month manifested for you so far? We began with a theme of Authentic Self (re)Born, inspired by the New Moon in Cancer, the Solstice and an Annular Solar Eclipse. So many powerful energies were at work, and you may have felt a pull from many directions. Perhaps the grounding energy of the Full… Continue reading Create space for something wonderful on the Full Moon in Capricorn

Naming the Sagittarius Full Moon

Wisdom from Grandmother Moon What will you name Friday’s Full Moon (& eclipse!) in Sagittarius? For some, this is the Rose Full Moon, the Strawberry Full Moon or the Mead Full Moon. I like to name it myself, based on what’s happening locally with flora and fauna. And isn't that how those names originated? I… Continue reading Naming the Sagittarius Full Moon

Begin a new adventure with the Sagittarius Full Moon and Eclipse

We began this lunar month with the New Moon in Gemini, a theme of communing, an invitation to share one's intimate thoughts or feelings with someone (or something) — especially on a spiritual level and even non-verbal level — and to harness that Gemini sociability and let it work for us in whatever way that… Continue reading Begin a new adventure with the Sagittarius Full Moon and Eclipse

Responding to Change in Interesting Times

Image by Dean Moriarty from Pixabay  "May you live in interesting times" is a phrase that is often used ironically. There is an assumption that life is better in non-interesting times, and that "interesting" times are in fact quite troublesome. Time will tell. But interesting times are also opportunities to examine our life, our choices and how we… Continue reading Responding to Change in Interesting Times

Lunar Bealtaine and the Full Moon in Scorpio

Some call this the Full Flower Moon, others the Full Corn Planting Moon, or the Milk Moon. I like to name the moons based on how Mama Earth is manifesting around me and each month the name reveals itself to me in the days leading up to the Full Moon. Scorpio is a Fixed sign,… Continue reading Lunar Bealtaine and the Full Moon in Scorpio

Connect to your Inspiration at the Leo Full Moon at Imbolg

Ah, the Full Moon. I look forward to this each lunar month even though it is the New Moon that often resonates more strongly for me. Perhaps it's the new moon association with deep intuitive energy that captures my imagination. Full Moons are action moons. Manifesting moons. Releasing moons. And each has a place in… Continue reading Connect to your Inspiration at the Leo Full Moon at Imbolg
