Super New Moon, New Year, What a Way to Start the Year!

Image

This new year is very special, not only because it marks the beginning of a new revolution around the Sun but because it is also our first new moon of 2014! This moon, as well as the new moon on January 30th, are considered to be supermoons due to their proximity to Earth.

As Anne Ortelee says “Today, this morning, has one of the most powerful New Moons of the upcoming year.  Five planets in Capricorn square Uranus and Mars and oppose Jupiter.  Take time today or over the next few days to dedicate yourself and your life toward your dream. Juno enters Pisces today until March 3, pushing the partnership energy into the land of dreams and inspiration.  Focus on the dream in your heart. Juno’s trine to super Jupiter, Apollon, encourages you to think big, aim for the stars, shoot for the passion and vision. Venus quintile to Uranus encourages you NOT to worry about how.  Focus instead on the passion inspiring the dream.  Animate it, dance with it, envision it, taste it.  Sun’s conjunction to Pluto starts a new one year cycle around ego transformation and evolution. Mercury’s cooperative action with Pallas encourages you to ground the dream and energize it to make it real.” http://www.astroanne.com/

We can not squander this great opportunity the Universe has given us! We need to dream big and let it be! The Universe will  make it happen. Maybe this evening you should sit down for a few minutes and really think what it is that you desire most this year? Spiritual growth? Spiritual gifts? Is it a new house? A better job? A healthy relationship? Business and personal success?

This midnight when you ring in the new year take a moment to do a simple spell but a very powerful one at that. If you go out to a party make sure you do it as soon as you get home because the moon will go void at 6:30am. This is a great opportunity to do self improvement spells. Don’t forget to feed that special little mojo bag, charge you meditation stones and any other magical tools used to aid in bringing new beginnings, filled of positive probabilities and great potential.

If you are not partying like the rest of the world you might enjoy doing a little crafting. This is a good time to make some new herbal and oil blends and charge them with the New Moon energy. I will share with you 2 of my personal recipes that I will be charging this evening (New Year’s Eve). Like always, use whatever herbs you have at hand and make sure you keep clear the intent of the blend as you are mixing it.

Yuletide Blessings To You!

wintersolstice

Tomorrow will be Yule! A Sabbath which brought hope of new beginnings to our ancestors. When they were reminded that once again, the sun will rise and longer days are to come. Many of us celebrate this joyous Sabbath in many different ways, but one thing remains the same, and it is the joy that we share with each other and the hope of a new year filled with promise.

Yule is here and now we must take some time to honor all of the experiences and lessons that we have  learned this past year. For me personally, this year have been very challenging and at the same time I have experienced spiritual growth and for that, I am thankful and I feel blessed. As the Sun is reborn again, Venus is at her highest position in the heavens calling us to commune with her during this special time. As she goes retrograde for the next 40 days, it gives us the proper time for inward and outward reflection on where we have been, where we are and where we want to be. During this time of reflection we can also figure out how we can be of better service those around us and our role in our families and communities. She is granting us the time to make proper plans for this upcoming year and with Saturn’s presence we feel compelled to let go of what no longer serves us. In other words this is the perfect time to come up with our New Year Resolutions! 🙂 There is no better time than now to honor our Great Mother as well as our Great Father for all the blessings they bring into our lives.

As the Oak King regains control of the seasons once again and the days grow longer and warmer, he brings with him the hope of new life that we all need during our dark times. Things will get better and abundance will return once again to the land. May you be merry on this special day and may the magic of this day lasts you the whole year through!

This is the perfect time to make and charge a Peace and Harmony Herb blend as well as Happy Family blend for future spell work. My personal blend recipes are below, in case you want to craft them. If you don’t have all of the herbs it is ok, just use what you have. While you are blending the herbs together have a clear intent of what attributes you want to activate and bring forth into the blend and the goal of the blend itself.

Peace and Harmony Herbal Blend – the intent is to bring peace and harmony to a situation, place or person

  • Marjoram – Love and happiness
  • Lavender – Love, happiness and peace
  • St. John’s Wort – Happiness, love and protection
  • Violet – Love and peace
  • Vervain – Love and Peace
  • Blue lace Agate – Peace, happiness and love (I always like to add a stone)

Happy Family Herb Blend – the intent is to bring abundance, joy, healing, love and passion to the family

  • Allspice- Abundance, luck, healing
  • Angelica – Child protection, peace in home, faith in marriage, protection and strength for women (let’s face it, we are usually the ones that are holding everything together)
  • Lavender – Love, Protection, happiness, peace
  • Marjoram – Protection, love, happiness, health, money and relieves depression
  • Nutmeg – Luck, attracts money and fidelity.
  • Vervain – Love, protection, peace,healing
  • High John – Love, success and happiness
  • Gold Lodestone stone – to attract love, protection and prosperity (I always like to add a stone or two)
  • Pink Quartz – unconditional love and love in the family

Wishing you a very merry Yule and may the new year bring you blessings abound!

Aspects of Yule

Time of deepest darkness
The God is born anew
Seedling in the frozen earth
Awaiting springtime dew.

The ground, an icy wasteland,
Though neighbors hearts are warm
We share our goods with everyone
So no one comes to harm.

Snow lies on her shoulders
Frosted mantle for her hair
Winter’s Queen is giving birth
The Goddess, always there

The sun is growing brighter.
It happens every year
Promising return of light
For sod and oak and deer

Stag King, his mighty antlers
Rising from a drift
Leaps for the hunter’s arrow
Just as strong and swift

He knows his time has ended
He is heading to the plain
Where joy caresses memory
Like softly summer rain

New fawn takes his first step,
The buck he will become.
After the time of knowing
A new year has begun.

Long Night’s Full Moon – The Last One of 2013

Image

Tonight is the last full moon of the year and what a special one it is! During this full moon we will be experiencing very interesting planetary influences. This moon, will be opening roads for us to receive much wisdom straight from the black hole at the center of our Universe. This new-found wisdom, will help us better understand our definitions of reality and what is possible. Uranus, is still in fiery Aries, so he is igniting in us, new fires that will turn into new beginnings. We are ready now to make the necessary changes that we have been planning for so long.

As we all know, full moons is a time to work on your personal spiritual growth or in the development of our intuition and/or psychic skills. It is also a good time to strengthen or establish our relationship with deity. So giving the fact, that in this evening we will be in prime cosmic location to download new information, I would definitely use this time to do journey-work to my teacher or my deity, with the intent to get new insights or helpful information to continue my spiritual development and any advice for the upcoming weeks. Also it could be a great time to ask them any questions you might have about what reality is. If you have not found a teacher or deity to work with this might be the perfect time to do so.

If you own a crystal skull, tonight is a prime day to charge it or upload new information to it, since there is so much information being streamed to us. Then you can access that information in future crystal skull meditations. I would also charge any stones that are regularly used for meditation, journey-work or healing.

With the new insights obtained during this evening you will be in a better position to evaluate your plan of action and set your goals for this new upcoming year. Take the time to enjoy the beautiful scenery of tonight’s full moon and if you have the chance go for a walk and let Her bright shinning light your way. Full moon’s blessings to you all!
