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

Reclaiming Friday the 13th

Friday the 13th and a Full Moon? WOW, there are so many posts about this, the "unlucky" energies, what to watch out for. But, to be honest, Friday the 13th is not something I normally notice but its conjunction with the Full Harvest Moon has raised the awareness of many people. I’ve never aligned with the… Continue reading Reclaiming Friday the 13th

A Full Moon celebration for goddess Diana

The August Full Moon in Aquarius arrives on August 15th at 12:29 UTC, on a day that many also celebrate the Roman goddess/priestess Diana, or her Greek counterpart Artemis. Consider working with goddess-priestess Diana on this Full Moon; she is a strong ally to women, fertility and childbirth. I first made a personal connection with… Continue reading A Full Moon celebration for goddess Diana

Ritual: Drawing Down the Moon

I originally shared this well-known ritual (and there are many variations) in a post a couple of years ago, but decided it needed to be shared again all on its own! DRAWING DOWN THE MOON This rite can be done during the Full Moon OR New Moon energy, alone or in Circle, and can be… Continue reading Ritual: Drawing Down the Moon

Wisdom from Grandmother Moon for the Full Moon in Capricorn

The Full Moon in Capricorn arrived 16-July at 21:38 UTC, accompanied by a partial lunar eclipse. The Full Moon marked the midpoint in this month’s lunar journey, and we will be in the energy of last night’s Full Moon (and the partial lunar eclipse) for the next couple of days as Seanmháthair Gealach (Grandmother Moon,… Continue reading Wisdom from Grandmother Moon for the Full Moon in Capricorn

Super Full Blood Moon Eclipse in Leo

Are you looking forward to the 20-21 January Super Full Blood Moon Total Eclipse? And isn't that almost too many adjectives!? And how could I let this event pass without offering some thoughts . . . a little ritual? An Eclipse (lunar or solar) is a powerful prompt for change, for leaving behind... for release.… Continue reading Super Full Blood Moon Eclipse in Leo

Solstitial Full Moon in Cancer

WISDOM FROM GRANDMOTHER MOON Such a powerful solstitial Full Moon tonight, a rare conjunction of the December solstice paired with a Full Moon. According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, this has happened just ten times at the December Solstice since 1793 and will not happen again until 2094. Not sure I’ll be around then so… Continue reading Solstitial Full Moon in Cancer

Full Moon in Gemini

This is most certainly an energetic day. Not only are my friends and colleagues in the US (and around the world) celebrating their Thanksgiving holiday, but the Sun has moved into Sagittarius and Grandmother Moon is now half-way through her lunar journey, and is fully illuminated, manifesting as a Full Moon in Gemini. Sun enters… Continue reading Full Moon in Gemini
