May’s 2014 New Moon in Gemini

moon over ocean

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)

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.

Mabon is Almost Here, Are you Ready?

Most of you know this date as the first day of Autumn! I can always feel the arrival of the new season in my body . I feel the excitement in my solar plexus. I always have a need to clean, clean and clean! It is part of my personal ritual to get ready to welcome the new season. In this case Autumn have always been my favorite season of the year. Not only because Halloween and Thanksgiving are celebrated during this time but it has always been, a feel good special time for me. As I look outside my window I can see the small changes all around!


As my nesting mode kicked in on high gear I decided to journey and ask my helping spirits what would be the best way to get my house in order for the upcoming new season. They were very helpful and they said that I should cleanse my home using the drum and to use water afterwards to invite the good spirits into my home.

Once I was done with my journey I did a little research in my BoS (Book of Shadows) to see what herb or oil I can add to my water to bless my house with once the cleaning was done. I found that I have Tahitian Gardenia infused oil and that Tahitian Gardenia is known to attract  good spirits, provide protection and bring peace, which are all good vibrations and qualities that I welcome in to my home. Tahitian Gardenia is also associated with the element of water, so using water as the mode of delivery was a great idea. I began to brainstorm on the best way to get the oil in the water and so I decided to make a salt to dissolve in the water.

Tahitian Gardenia Home Blessing Salt

  • 1/4 cup of Sea Salt
  • 1/4 cup of Epsom Salt
  • 1/8 cup of Baking Soda
  • 10 drops of Tahitian Gardenia Infused Oil

Mix all of the ingredients in a sandwich bag and store in a tight lid container. When ready to use place 1 tablespoon of the salt in a spray bottle and shake well until it is fully dissolved. Smell it and if it needs a bit more add some more! I prepared mine and left on my altar for 2 days charging before using it. The great thing about making the gardenia salt is that now I can also use it as a bath for myself after I do my own cleansing!

Now I am ready to clean my home! I started by physically cleaning the floors, the bathrooms, the walls, the kitchen, my house was spotless! But it was late at night (around 8pm) and I was concerned about my drumming bothering my neighbors. I had my husband step outside and see if he could hear the drum going and he said you can hear it but muffled. That made me a bit worried but I moved forward and hoping that I would not be visited by the Sheriff! I cleansed my home with my drum for the first time and then I proceeded to bless it with the gardenia water I prepared. My house smelled and felt fabulous!  I really enjoyed cleansing my home this way. Now my home is ready for the new season!

Please! always check further into any ingredient listed in my recipes and make sure that it doesn’t post any health risk to you and your family. My intent with posting them in my blogs is to share with you what I do and how I do it. If you would like to try any of them for yourself make sure you do your research first! If you do end up trying any of them please leave a comment and let me know how it went. 🙂

What do you do to get ready for the upcoming season change? How do you cleanse your home?

Hope to hear from you!
