My zodiac sign is Gemini and I have truly had a wonderful month! Usually it is not so. I usually dread the days leading up to my birthday because they are usually filled with stresses and not so many fun events. I am happy that this year was quite different.
In this post I wanted to share with you how I write my blogs on what can I focus my magickal works on. I usually prepare myself by reading the astrological forecasts of various astrologers and then letting it all sit and I figure out what will work best for me. Today seems to be a night to just try to enjoy the illusionary nature of Neptune. This it is a time to dream about what we want our future to be like and leave the planning of how to bring it into manifestation for tomorrow, when Venus enters Taurus, her earthly realm. This new moon call us to have a good time and relieve the stress of the past 2 weeks. What is your preferred method of relieving your stress? Is it by taking a bubble bath? having a glass of wine? or is it by reading a good book? cuddling with your loved ones? Whatever way you choose this is the perfect time to do so. Because we are in a square with Neptune and it will play with our perceptions of people and situations. So we may not see things for what they really are. So instead of fighting our way through the web of illusion we can just coast through it and enjoy it! Take advantage of it and fantasize, envision your dreams. Just make sure that you don’t get too carried away! This is also a good time for creative endeavors, set your imagination free of limiting thoughts.
As always, during the New Moons is a good time to just sit down and take inventory of where we are and where we want to go (but because of Neptune’s fog that may be a little harder to do). It is also a good time to plant the seeds of something that we may want to see fulfilled in this upcoming full moon (but I think tomorrow would be a better day to do this). Between a full moon that was in void of course and now a new moon being influenced by illusions it is best to just sit it out and just relax. I have to say that I have spiritually enjoyed this month very much, I have been able to experience some well deserved R&R . As for me, this month was good to let go a little of the structured spiritual hard work (if there is such thing) and just go with the flow!
I personally will be spending this new moon relaxing soaking in a hot bath, dreaming of the things to come. Dreaming on how I want my life to be and envisioning where I will be when I am 70 years old! I will also take the time to connect with my teacher and seek his wisdom in how I can more fully live my life’s purpose. It is nice to know that I can dream and relax tonight and that tomorrow the Goddess will help me plan and reveal to me how to properly bring my dreams into manifestation.
Given the fact that tonight is a good night for creative endeavors and many of us find relaxation while being crafty, I figured it could be a good night to make some oil blends and make your own bath salt. Here are a couple of recipes you can follow of your can create your own, here is how:
Bath Salt Base
- 1/4 Baking Soda (to help distribute the oil)
- 1/2 cup of Epsom Salt
- 1/2 cup of Seas Salt
- 10-20 drops of Essential Oil or Essential Oil Blend (Dark Moon or Gemini Oil or your own personal creation!)
- A few drops of food coloring if you like (optional)
- Dried herbs of your choosing (optional)
Dark Moon Oil
- 7 drops of Jasmine
- 2 drops of Chamomile
- 3 drops of Patchouli
- 1 drop of Sandalwood
- 4 drops of Lavender
- 1 drop of Peppermint
- 1 drop of Lemongrass
- 1 drop of Sweet Pea Bouquet
These oil blends are not my original recipes. They are very well-known within the community. I posted them here in case being crafty is one of your ways to find relaxation. If making bath salts is not your cup of tea you can always bring a mix of some crystals to the bath with you, here are a few combinations.
- Smoky Quartz
- Black Tourmaline
May you relax and dream of a beautiful life during this new moon! Many blessings!
