Storm Full Moon 2015

Full-Moon-in-the-Storm

This full moon goes void of course very quickly, so better keep your ritual short and sweet. The full moon enters Virgo at 12:06 pm CST and goes Void of Course at 12:36 pm CST until Friday at 7:52 pm CST. This will be the last full moon of Winter. The energies of balance, rebirth and renewals are upon us! We will turn the wheel of the year once again during this Spring Equinox. We will say good bye to the Winter and we will welcome with open arms and heart, Spring!

This moon is known by many names, some of the additional ones are the Crow Moon, Sap Moon or the Worm Moon. It is known as the Crow Moon because during this time we start to see the crows being more active thanks to the fact that it is thawing out and there is more food available. Talking about food it is also known as the Worm Moon (named by the Algonquin Tribes) because during this time the worms start making it’s appearances and therefore birds like the crow have food once again and we start seeing the signs of Spring. It is also known as the Sap Moon because during this time maple tree’s are tapped to collect their wonderful sap!

Virgo-New-Moon

Virgo is very practical, it is known for facilitating integration, synthesis and digestion of events and emotions.The fact that the moon will be void of course for so long it actually give us ample time to sit down and take a look within to see what are out true motives for doing the things we do. It gives us the time to take inventory and make course correction where is needed. This moon will bring a lot of clarity so that you are now able to see things that you couldn’t see before. During this moon, Venus is in Astrea which also lends its energies to do works that aid emotional healing. This paired up with the clarity can actually be the perfect combinations of energies to be able to get over that person that we have let go. We can see things more clearly and we can actually heal and move on. So for all those transitioning out of a long term relationship this is the perfect time to completely cut ties and heal.

Magically speaking once again with have great energies that allows use to do a lot different kinds of works during. If you are focusing your efforts in doing a healing ceremony (like myself) keep it short and sweet be practical. 🙂 Because of the nature of this moon being void of course for so long and introspection is a great way to utilize this time I think working with gem elixirs is the way to go instead of soaking in a bath. There is something about taking something within while going within. So I will be recommending a few gem elixirs to aid your works!

Rose Moon 2014

rosemoon

This month, the Full Moon falls on Friday the 13th. Friday being the day of the goddess and 13 the number of moon cycles in a year. All symbols of the divine feminine. This full moon is in Capricorn and though the energies of Capricorn lend themselves to do works in the matters of organization, ambition, recognition, career and political matters. I am focusing my intention to connect with Capricorn’s association with the element of  earth. However if you have a need in the areas previously mentioned, this moon might be very useful for you.

rose moon

This moon is known as the Rose Moon because at this time in the year when roses are in full bloom, which you might have already noticed. My roses are in the process for being full bloom but they are not quite there yet. 🙂 During this time there are a lot of weddings, hand-fastings and romance. As we draw closer to Midsummer the fairies are also feasting and having a great time! So this is a time of great joy and beauty not only in nature but also in our lives.

This moon is the perfect  time to do spell-work around the theme of Love. You can choose to create an Ally Bag of Stones or Mojo Bag to bring forth love in every possible way. Not just the romantic one but in loving lasting friendships and stronger loving familial bonds. There is also a love that is often overlooked and  that is self-love. This is a good opportunity to do work around self-love, connecting and activating the Heart Chakra. On this Friday the 13th there will be 3 Venus hours, (5:14 am-6:30 am), (2:06 pm – 3:22 pm) and (9:54 pm – 10:38 pm) I would suggest to use any of these 3 time slots to work your magick, just to give it extra energy. Remember intent is everything and lets respect free will! Let your higher-self and the Universe bring to you what is best for you, they know best!

Love Ally Bag of Stones (my personal combination)

  • Rose Quartz – which promotes peace, happiness, fidelity, romance and it brings love to where ever it is.
  • Mookite –  bestows a positive attitude towards life and a desire to intensely experience relationships.
  • Rhodonite – allows you to let go of past emotional burdens, so that you may enjoy the new love when it comes.
  • Rhodocrosite – which brings love, eroticism and sexuality into the mix!

To this bag you can choose to add some herbs like:

  • Rose petals
  • Yarrow
  • Lavender

bubble-bath

If ritual baths is your cup of tea (like it is for me) you can make your own Love Bath Salts. You can make an oil blend from a well-known recipe or you may have your own (also recipes are guidelines, just use what you have). Then add 20 drops of this to the bath salt base. If you so choose you can also add to the bath water the stones from your Ally Bag to increase the energies. I find that baths are an incredible way to connect with Source and to connect your own sacred Divine Feminine. There is nothing like a window open, bringing in the rays of the full moon. The room smells wonderful, it is softly lit by pink candles that have been dressed with the love oil and just easing in to the bath it is just a wonderful physical experience! Want to add more energy share your bath with someone you love…

Love Oil 

  • 7 drops of Rose Oil
  • 3 drops of Jasmine Oil
  • 3 drops of Patchouli Oil
  • 7 drops of Dragon’s Blood Oil
  • 2 oz of Base Oil

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)

Whatever you decide to do on this Full Moon I hope you enjoy it to the max! As long as you take a moment to honor the day and the energies within it, that is all it really matters! The rest, is just the frosting on the cake! Many blessings and enjoy the Rose Moon of June!
