Set of Cards # 1 Mother Mary, Expect a Miracle – “Have faith that your prayers have been heard and are being answered.” and Insight – “Understanding, Awakening, Awareness, Self-Evaluation”

Mother Mary is a Christian goddess. She is the goddess of faith, healing and children. She is the mother of Christ. She works closely with child advocates, teachers, care givers or healers. Her symbol is the Rosary and she is associated with the Sun. The message that she brings, is to have that peace of mind that you know that you prayers has been heard and will be answered. Have that faith and the knowing within your heart that no matter the direction the answer goes it is for your highest good. Let go of the worries and enjoy the present. Mother Mary is paired with the Chakra card Insight which means that the answer you will receive will bring to you a new awareness about yourself and you will gain understating about those involved. An offering you can give Mother Mary is doing a random act of kindness this week. You can choose to wear yellow or gold items to bring her energy to you or you can dedicate or make your own prayers beads.

Set of Cards # 2 Green Tara – “Ask others (including me) to help you, instead of trying to do everything by yourself.” and Guidance – “Support, Love, Signs, Direction”

The Green Tara is a Hindu and Buddhist Goddess and her name means Star in ancient Sanskrit which is also her symbol. She is represented in many colors to denote her personality and her aspects. In this case we are talking about her green aspect which is known for being a speedy helper who can help you in emergency situations and helps you gain rapid understanding of situations and relationships around you. She empowers you, so you can save yourself. The Green Tara is paired with the Guidance card which is all about seeking support, guidance and direction. These two cards work so very well together. They are both calling to call upon the Divine for help. That you do not have to do it alone. That it is ok to look for help and guidance during your time of need or when you feel weak. It is ok to ask there for that loving support so that we may carry-on on our life’s journey. Remember you are not alone and there are people and the Divine who are more than willing to provide you with the help that you may need, do not feel guilty or ashamed for asking their assistance. If you would like to connect with the Green Tara you can star gaze and connect with the stars. You can make stars and place them around your home or sacred space.

Set of Cards #3 Sedna “You are supplied today and all of your tomorrows.” and Gut Instincts – “Intuition, Knowing, Sensing and Trust”

Sedna is an Inuit Eskimo and Alaskan goddess of the Sea who provides sustenance for the body and the soul. She is intimately connected to the inhabitants of the oceans given the fact that they are part of her. The myth has it that she lost the tips of her fingers in a boating accident and they became the whales, seals and other seas creatures. She is another goddess of abundance. Sedna is paired up with Gut Instincts which is telling that you need to know deep within yourself and trust that you will be ok. Live in the moment and do not worry about what the future holds. Know that you will be taken care of and your needs will always be met so enjoy the blessings that you have today. Continue to follow your own intuition and make the choices that are aligned with your highest good and the goals have. A fun way that you can connect with Sedna is by getting a pet fish (if you have a salt water tank) or dedicating a fish to her and every time you feed the fish you can do it as an act of offering and gratitude. Then in times of need you can whisper to them so Sedna can hear you. Another simple way can be to place in your scared space a few seashells and a bowl with water and sea salt.

Long Nights’ Full Moon 2014

This full moon is commonly known as the Long Nights full moon because it is the time of the year in which the nights are the longest. As we grow closer to the Winter solstice and the the night will once again grow shorter. During this time of darkness it is a good time to evaluate the past year and leave the dark times behind you. There is a very simple ritual that you can perform to ofcu on purification and trust of what is to come. I found it in the Witches’ Datebook 2014 and it is by James Kambos and it goes as follows:

“Cover your altar with a white cloth, representing a future shrouded in mystery. Honor the Moon by lighting one white candle. Before the candle, lay one pine branch. Meditate about this past year and what your hopes are for the next year. In an act of purification, brush yourself with the pine branch from head to toe and say:

During this, the darkest time of the year,

Long Nights Moon keep me safe and free from fear.

I trust in the future, I trust fate,

I trust in the Divine Spirit and whatever awaits.”

Chiron is known as the Wounded Healer of the celestial bodies. Chiron is having a big impact during this full moon and so it brings with it great energy that we can use to do works to release emotional and address outstanding healing issues. This full moon is in Gemini which means that generally works that are related to communication, self -expression, the way we connect to the community, Throat Chakra balancing and travel are good to do during this time. You can also focus this moon for physical healing ritual for ailments of the shoulder, arms, hands or lungs.

As for me and my works, since Gemini is influenced by Chiron I think I will focus my intentions on healing my emotional self, maybe I will do a shamanic journey to get a ritual that I can perform to better my relationship with the community I am part of and to seek healing for any emotional hurts that I have been burying deep down below that involves others within my community. Our world is changing and it is at a fragile crucial state. We need to be agents of change and we need to bring tolerance, love and compassion into our works and our communities. The better the emotional, mental and physical state we are personally in, the better we can serve and support our community.

Many blessings to you and happy magical workings!

Animal Message Spread 12-03-2014 GypsyMoons.com

Card # 1 Frog “Adapt and survive by accepting the inevitable and seizing potential”

The message frog brings is that of adaptability! Be flexible and adapt to the changes that may arise. Not only adapt but use this new found path to seek the new opportunities that it brings to you. This will ensure your success no matter what obstacles or course correction you may encounter in your journey.

Card #2 Porcupine “You may defend yourself honorably without hurting those close to you”

The message porcupine brings is that if you feel that you need to defend yourself from others it is ok to do so. However there is no need to always be in defensive. Act more like a porcupine, it shares his den with others and it walks around perfectly at ease and content it doesn’t walk around with his quills on the defensive. He only perks them up when it finds itself in peril. You can do the same, trust those around you and only when necessary do you need to take a defensive stance. Allow people in and you will reap the benefits, do not shut them out of fear of getting hurt.

Card #3 Tortoise “When changes are made for the sake of change itself, resist”

This card is telling to really think things through. Don’t make changes just because that is what someone else wants to do. If it is not broken, don’t fix it. When we make changes in our lives they need to be done for the right reasons and to help you further in your own journey. You don’t ever change for the benefit of others. You change because it is what is best for you and it is what propels you forward. Tortoise reminds you, that you have the power and to not give your power away. It is ok to stand your ground, just follow your own path, be truthful to yourself and listen to what your intuition is telling you.
